Per HitsDailyDouble, RiRi is slated to land a pair of songs on the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack.
The Ryan Coogler-directed sequel is set to hit theaters across the country on November 11 with an accompanying soundtrack also arriving. The Marvel blockbuster’s soundtrack will hit streaming services via Marvel/Disney and Westbury Road/Roc Nation/Def Jam.
After giving birth and welcoming a baby boy with A$AP Rocky in May, Rihanna is ready to reassert her dominance on the music scene. She’s already been tapped to headline the Super Bowl LVII halftime show in Glendale, Arizona next year.
Earlier in October, HitsDailyDouble teased the possibility of the beauty mogul heading out on a stadium tour following her Super Bowl performance in 2023.
The singer has not released any new music as a solo artist since her multi-platinum 2016 album Anti, sparking an ongoing outcry for new material by her Navy on social media. Even as a featured artist, RiRi’s last appearance was on PartyNextDoor’s “Believe It” in 2020.
With the long break in between touring, Rihanna admitted she’s “nervous” to hit the grand Super Bowl stage.
“I’m nervous!” she told paparazzi while wearing a long-sleeve tee honoring the late DMX. “But I’m excited.”
JAY-Z’s Roc Nation is credited with partnering with the NFL as strategic entertainment advisors to put the Super Bowl halftime show together and Hov sang Rih’s praises after news broke of her selection.
Macklemore has tapped into his inner André 3000 for his new “Maniac” music video — watch it below.
The new track featuring Windser finds the Grammy-winning rapper donning a lime green suit while paying homage to some of Andre’s jittery dance moves seen in OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” music video.
The Jake Magraw-directed visual also sports a brief cameo from famed music journalist Nardwuar.
“The first time I heard Windser singing the hook on ‘Maniac’ I fell in love with it,” Macklemore said of the new single in a statement. “It’s infectious and relatable and I couldn’t get it out of my head.
“We’ve all been in relationships that maybe don’t feel healthy all the time, but we still love that person and are dependent and addicted to that love. It’s universal. Maniac is that love story.”
“Maniac” is produced by frequent collaborator Ryan Lewis and Budo, and arrives after Macklemore had previously dropped off “CHANT” earlier in 2022, which chronicled Macklemore’s latest struggle with substance abuse that led to a near-fatal overdose.
While it’s unclear if “Maniac” and “CHANT” are meant to signify a new album, it would potentially be the first Macklemore project to drop since 2017’s Gemini, which featured appearances from Skylar Grey, Lil Yachty, Offset, Xperience and others.
Drake’s ability to smash music industry records is unparalleled. With every release, the Toronto-bred megastar collects streams like a cistern collects rainwater. And his latest release has proven to be no different. Just one hour after Drake delivered his surprise album Honestly, Nevermind on Friday (June 17), he smashed another record.
According to a press release, Honestly, Nevermind became the biggest dance album in Apple Music history breaking the record for first-day streams worldwide. Drake currently holds the record for the biggest album in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide with 2021’s Certified Lover Boy, while 2018’s Scorpion is the second biggest album by first-day streams worldwide. Drake also holds the record for the biggest song in Apple Music history by first-day streams worldwide, with “Girls Want Girls.”
Reviews on the album have been mixed. During an episode of The Breakfast Club, Charlamagne Tha God compared it to elevator music.
“I don’t mind the vibes you know the vibes to me are the vibes you hear when you’re at a Beverley Hills luxury hotel,” Charlamagne explained. “This is lobby, elevator music. This is the vibes when you sitting in the lobby of the SLS hotel having some drinks on a leather couch with the lights dimly lit. You got a suit on, no tie, first couple of buttons on your shirt open, some slippers on, loafers no socks. I’m never going to revisit this.”
HipHopDX – It’s hard to think of anything besides the tragic mass shooting event in Texas just days ago, which left 19 children and two adults dead. That’s precisely why Kanye West pushed back his highly anticipated YEEZY Gap drop and artists such as 21 Savage, Missy Elliott and more have spoken out to condemn school shootings and make desperate pleas for the reform of gun laws.
Despite the dark cloud hanging over our nation, the silver lining is the fact that this week’s edition of HipHopDX’s New Music Friday Albums coverage includes a blend of new and old-school Hip Hop releases, including new material from OG artists such as Eminem and Sean Paul.
Other key releases include fresh material from Westcoast artist Jayson Cash, Millyz, Jelly and Pi’erre Bourne, among others.
Check out the entire batch of albums that dropped on Friday (May 27), below.
