Hip-Hop Dominates Pandora's Top Thumbed 100 Tracks Of 2018

Pandora has been spending the last year crunching the numbers for a very successful year in hip-hop and R&B. Taking time to compile a list of the Top 100 thumbed up tracks on the streaming platform, Pandora has officially released their "Thumbed Hundreds" playlist.

Drake sits at the top of the list, with his No. 1 debut and 8 times platinum track, "God's Plan." Released on Jan. 19 as a part of his Scary Hours EP, the track was later placed on the rap star's double-disc studio album, Scorpion. 

Aside from "God's Plan," four other tracks off Scorpion also landed a spot on the Top 100, including "Nice For What," "In My Feelings," "Nonstop," and "I'm Upset," sitting at No. 4, 5, 33 and 45 (respectively).

Trailing behind Drake is Bronx femcee Cardi B, who appears on the list a total of 11 times (as opposed to Drake's 9). Invasion of Privacy's "I Like It" with Bad Bunny and J Balvin takes the No. 2 position on the list, followed by Post Malone's "Psycho" at No. 3.

Offset Crashed Cardi B's Rolling Loud Festival Set

Cardi B took to social media last week to reveal her and Offset have called it quits. While she didn't go into detail as to what led to the end of their year-long marriage, the Invasion of Privacy artist took the high road.

Since then social media has been flooded with commentary from both sides. There are many who think Belcalis should give the Migos rapper a second chance, while the other half of the Internet thinks all the Grammy-nominated rapper should do is give her estranged husband his walking papers.

Cardi's been relatively quiet, while Offset launched his "I'm sorry, baby, please take me back" campaign. He took his campaign to new heights Saturday night (Dec. 15) when during Cardi's set at the Rolling Loud Festival in Los Angeles he brought out flowers and cake with the words "Take Me Back Cardi.”

The two were seen one stand exchanging words with Cardi's face stoic and nearing anger. Offset later exited the stage, Cardi had the props removed and she continued with her set.

At Rolling Loud...Offset brought out the crazy cake set up in the middle of Cardi's that spelled out Take Me Back Cardi...she was so not feeling the gesture and had him and the set up removed! #RolllingLoud

— Datwon Thomas (@Daydog) December 16, 2018

For many, Offset's plea had a larger consequence. Cardi B was the first woman to ever headline Rolling Loud and he interrupted her moment.

Cardi B was the first FEMALE headliner in Rolling Loud history! Honestly, it’s so fucked up that he even did that. Like, you really gonna be out here taking up her spotlight and making her set about you? Nah bro.

— Romario Bautista (@coquihanii) December 16, 2018

Others realized Offset's behavior is far from romantic and called it out as manipulative and toxic.

I woke up and saw how people are glorifying Offset’s actions trying to get Cardi B back and y’all need to see how toxic and abusive this situation is.

Regardless of how even Cardi views it. #Offset

Cardi B's Upcoming 'Carpool Karaoke' Segment Looks As Eventful As We'd Hope

The Late Late Show with James Corden's popular segment "Carpool Karaoke" will be welcoming Grammy-nominee Cardi B to the passenger's seat on Monday (Dec. 17). The teaser for the segment dropped on the nightly show's YouTube channel.

In the minute-long clip, Cardi and Corden sing along to her tracks "Bodak Yellow" and "Money." Of course, between these music breaks, shenanigans ensue.

Cardi, who has acknowledged in the past that she doesn't have her driver's license, attempts to park the car between cones on the street. Obviously, this doesn't look like a successful attempt, and a few cones are knocked down by the car. Later on, Cardi and James drive past a group of school children. Cardi yells out the window and tells them to stay in school and to behave themselves. We can't wait to see the entire segment next week.

Last week, the new mom was nominated for five Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year for "I Like It," and Best Rap Album and Album Of The Year for Invasion Of Privacy. She also revealed via Instagram that she would be separating from her husband and the father of her child, Offset of the group Migos, after just over a year of marriage.

Oddly enough, the last episode of Carpool Karaoke featured Migos.

'Selena: The Series' Is Headed To Netflix

It's been more than 20 years since Selena Quintanilla's senseless death, but the singer's fans and family have done their part to keep her memory and legacy alive. With the hope of introducing the Grammy-award winner to a new generation, Netflix has ordered a Selena series to live on the streaming platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Quintanilla family will produce what is being described as a coming of age story for the model, actress and fashion designer. It's unclear how many episodes will be in the series and if it'll be 30 minutes or an hour.

"Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come."

Selena began her musical career in the 1980s often performing at festivals in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She quickly rose to fame and earned a Grammy in 1994 for best Mexican/American album, becoming the first female Tejano singer to do so.

In 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar who managed her fan club after it had been discovered she was embezzling money. Saldivar was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The singer's life then made it to the big screen in 1997, with Jennifer Lopez starring in the principal role.
