Mario joins forces with Young Money mistress Nicki Minaj for his new single, “Somebody Else,” produced by Polow Da Don.
The song will be made available on iTunes tomorrow, and serves as the first single from his upcoming fifth studio album, tentatively titled Restoration, his first release since 2009′s D.N.A.
British artist VV Brown debuts her new single, “Samson” with a brand new video (in which she DOES NOT APPEAR). You may remember her sound being a little more soulful, but she’s traded that in for a more Bjork-inspired, electronic sound.
In an interview with HungerTV, VV explains the change of sound:
I feel like I’ve grown so much as a women and an artist. Maturity has been a huge catalyst. I wrote my first record in 2007. I was growing up whilst I was touring. Your album is a snap shot of a time in your life and you have to carry that sonic photograph with you as you change.
She explains that after her debut album, 2009′s Travelling Like the Light, she began working on her sophomore set, but completely abandoned the project, as well as her record label…
K. Michelle drops her first official single from her upcoming debut studio album, Rebellious Soul. Check out the new track, “V.S.O.P.,” produced by Pop & Oak.

It’s been five years since the release of Janet Jackson’s last album, and on the 20th anniversary of her legendary fifth studio album, janet., she decides to take an exclusive sit down with Billboard Magazine.
In addition to talking about the impact of that album, she also reveals some information about a new project.
I am working on a new project now. We are creating the concept and initial thoughts on the music. I am excited about the direction we are taking. I don’t want to rush it… I don’t want to put a time constraint on the creative process. [SOURCE]

In what seemed to get fans in a frenzy earlier this week, four original members of Danity Kane sat down and had lunch with new management about a possible reunion, which is rumored to include a new album and tour.
Fans stayed hopeful and made the assumption that D. Woods (who was the only original member not present at the reunion luncheon), didn’t attend due to prior obligations. But Woods sat the record straight with an exclusive with FreddyO.com. Check out what she had to say:
It has been brought to my attention that my former group members of Danity Kane will be reuniting and while I will not be a part of the reunion; I wish the ladies blessings and much success on their endeavors.
