Chloe x Halle Are Ready To Take Over The R&B World With 'The Kids Are Alright'

Not only are these sisters beautiful, but they've got the talent to match. 

Dynamic sister duo, Chloe x Halle, plan to release their debut album The Kids Are Alright on March 23rd and pre-order starts today (Feb. 23). Impressively enough, Chloe Bailey, 19, and Hailey Bailey, 17, have written and executively produced the album. The girls have even been slowly building rapport amongst their fan base for the last three years. They have consistently dropped striking videos (like  "Drop" and "Fall", for example) that seem to be well beyond their years. Their soulful energy has been apparent in their own music and also in the covers they do of some of today's most popular songs.

Their rendition of Beyonce's "Pretty Hurts" even caught the attention of the icon. This lead to them being the opening act for the songstress in 2016 during the European lag of her wildly successful "The Formation World Tour." After their success on the road, they crafted their "not an album, not really a mixtape" project, The Two of Us. The critically-acclaimed project featured music written and produced by the pair, which lead them to be named one of People Magazine's Ones To Watch.

In December of last year, the duo released probably their most recognizable project the theme song for Freeform's Grown-ish, a spin on the hit show Black-ish. This eventually lead them to have a roles as series regulars instead of reoccurring roles which they were originally cast for.

"Our debut album The Kids Are Alright means so much to us," said the girls. "This is three years of self-discovery, vulnerability, and growth, all put into one album."

Earth, Wind & Fire Make History For Kennedy Center Honors Recognition

Award-winning musical group, Earth, Wind, & Fire, has made history. The "September" artists became the first R&B group to receive recognition at the Kennedy Center Honors on Thursday (July 18), Billboard reports.

"The Kennedy Center Honors celebrates icons who, through their artistry, have left an indelible stamp on our collective cultural consciousness," stated Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein. "Earth, Wind & Fire's hooks and grooves are the foundation of a seminal style that continues to shape our musical landscape."

Lead singers or paramount songwriters are predominantly honored. Yet, Earth, Wind & Fire join three other talented groups that have been acknowledged with the distinction: American rock band the Eagles in 2016, and English rock bands Led Zeppelin in 2012, and The Who in 2008.

Other honorees for the upcoming ceremony include Academy Award-winning actress, Sally Field, best known for starring in Forrest Gump (1994), Steel Magnolias (1989), among other films and television series. American singer Linda Ronstadt, who holds 10 Grammy Awards, one Emmy, three Academy of Country Music Awards in addition to her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. PBS quintessential-series, Sesame Street, has bridged the gap for both cultural and educational narratives for children and adults over the last 50 years. American conductor, composer, and pianist Michael Tilson Thomas is the music director of the San Francisco Symphony, Founder and Artistic Director of the New World Symphony.

The 42nd annual Kennedy Center Honors will celebrate the honorees on Sunday (Dec. 8), in Washington, D.C.

Young Dro Arrested For Throwing A Plate Of Banana Pudding At His Girlfriend

Young Dro is facing two counts of misdemeanor battery and family violence for reportedly hurling a plate of banana pudding at his girlfriend while at the couple's Atlanta-area home.

The food-flying fiasco between Dro, real name D'Juan Montrel Hart, and his girlfriend took place over money. Yet despite Hart's girlfriend insisting she doesn't want to press charges, local law enforcement booked the 40-year-old Bankhead rapper.

TMZ reports Dro is also being held on a child support contempt order. He owes a whopping $41,000 in back child support and in order to be released he must pay $10,000.

The back child support is for another child with a different woman, not the current girlfriend and Dro alleges that he's paid his previous debt.

Dro rose to prominence in 2006 with fellow ATLien T.I. with the release of the insanely sticky "Shoulder Lean." Most recently, in 2017 he released Da Real Atlanta.

Glad the food-fight and custody payments have been settled.

Nicki Minaj took over DJ Felly Fell’s show on L.A.’s Power 106 radio station Friday (July 19) where she premiered the remix to DaBaby's “Suge” single.

“Ya’ll already know I’m back on my bull! We got a lot more in the motherf**kin’ chamber,” said Minaj.

The “Megatron” rapper  also sent a shout out to Da Baby. “I just think he’s super dope and he actually spits actual bars.”

Prior to the song premiere, Minaj shared her first public statement on the death of Nipsey Hussle. The Queens native explained that she wasn’t on the internet at the time of Hussle’s murder, but wanted to send condolences to Lauren London, and the rest of his family.

“When he passed I didn’t get a chance to be online at that time,” Minaj told Power 106's DJ Carisma. “Lauren London happens to be somebody that I adore. I felt like my heart ripped out when I heard [that he was killed]. I just wanted to finally send my condolences to his family and his fans.”

Earlier in the interview, Minaj sent love to her fans in Saudi Arabia after canceling her appearance at the Jedah World Festival over the country’s treatment of women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Minaj added that she turned down $1.5 million by pulling out of the performance. She also confirmed that she will be heading out on tour after the release of her upcoming new album.
