Mac Miller Lands His First Top 10 On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart

This “Circles” track has cracked the top 10.

Mac Miller has posthumously earned his very first top 10 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Charts with his “Good News” track as it debuts at No. 10. Concurrently, “Good News” debuts at No. 4 on the R&B/Hip-HOp Streaming Songs chart after earning 22.9 million on-demand streams in the U.S. in addition to a bow at No. 6 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs Sales Chart with 8,000 downloads.

“Good News” first arrived a week before the debut of Circles. The full-length outing marks Mac’s first posthumous album, arriving just over a year after his September 2018 death, weeks after his final Swimming album was released. Prior to “Good News,” Swimming’s “Self Care” boasted Mac’s highest-ranking movement on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart at No.18.

“This is a complicated process that has no right answer. No clear path. We simply know that it was important to Malcolm for the world to hear it,”[enned Mac’s family of the Circles release. “…We are left to imagine where Malcolm was going to appreciate where he was. We hope you take the time to listen. The look on his face when everyone was listening said it all.”

Mac Miller was 26 when he was found dead in his Studio City, CA home. His tragic death has since been ruled an accidental overdose of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol

Keyshia Cole Reveals That Her Mother Has Checked Into A Rehab Facility

Keyshia Cole celebrates her mother’s decisions.

Saturday, Keyshia Cole took to Instagram to reveal that she had spent the entire day with her family, revealing her mother, Frankie Lons, decided to check herself into a facility for treatment.

“Happy YOU DECIDED ON YOUR OWN, to check YOURSELF INTO a facility to get treatment,” wrote the Oakland-bred songstress. “It’s only been two weeks but, I’m trying to be hopeful and optimistic 🙃 Maybe that’s what’ll make THIS TIME different. This being what YOU WANTED AND NO ONE ELSE…….. Maybe this is the YEAR IN ALL ASPECTS !!!!! GREATNESS”

In the past, Cole has been particularly vocal about her mother’s struggles with drug abuse. In August of 2018, the singer took to Instagram to upload a video of her self with Lons, giving fans a stark update on her mother’s condition at the time.

“This was 2 1/2 years ago. Every time my mom relapse, it breaks my heart more than it’s already been broken,” she admitted. “I’m hoping, if any of u are dealing with a family member who’s battling with drug addiction, that you, yourself are learning how to cope with the struggle of it all. And all the pain it brings to see a loved one constantly relapsing. See them go back to the streets Because that’s what they’re used to, or would rather be. I really miss you! And will always love u.”

Case Reflects On Crafting R&B Classics With Ex-Flame Mary J. Blige

A walk down memory lane.

He’s responsible for belting out classics like “Missing You,” “Living It Up” with Ja Rule, and “Touch Me, Tease Me” with Mary J. Blige and Foxy Brown, but in recent years, Case hasn’t been involved much in the music scene as an artist. He was once one of Def Jam’s stars and the music video for his 1999 single “Happily Ever After” even featured Beyoncé as his love interest. In his recent feature on BET for Finding Case, the singer reflects on his career and how he topped the charts.

According to Case, Misa Hylton, Diddy ex and the mother of his son Justin, was instrumental in getting Case’s music in front of the right people. Misa was best friends with Mary J. Blige and she connected the two singers together to write “Touch Me, Tease Me.” After they locked themselves in the studio penning the track, they decided that the song needed a rapper. Someone mentioned that Foxy was a Def Jam artist so there wouldn’t be a problem getting her to add her vocals to the song, and the rest is hip hop and R&B history.

Case also shared details about his love affair with Mary J. and how there were more collaborations between the two of them that were scrapped from his record a week before it was released. Her label didn’t want her in his music videos or on his record, so they threatened to sue him if she made appearances. At the last minute, they had to change things up and remove the “Real Love” singer’s vocals from his tracks. He also mentioned that their romance came to halt because he was trying to sneak around with other women while out on tour as Mary’s cousin was on the road with him as his hype man.

Check out his full feature below along with the music video for “Missing You.”.

DaBaby, Roddy Ricch & Megan Thee Stallion To Headline Broccoli City Fest

The perfect 2020 lineup.

Broccoli City Fest isn’t like other music festivals. Located at Washington, DC’s RFK Stadium, it doesn’t only seek to provide a musical experience, but a communal one. The festival is organized by Broccoli City, a project that is dedicated to “mobilizing and educating urban millennials through social impact campaigns and major events.” There are opportunities to learn about and get involved with sustainability initiatives on site, while also getting the chance to see a selection of today’s hottest artists. Community ties are also built through supporting local vendors at the pop-up marketplace.

This year, Broccoli City Fest will be headlined by DaBaby, Roddy Ricch and Megan Thee Stallion – three rappers who were 2019 MVPs and are shaping up to be just as impactful in 2020. The lineup doesn’t solely consist of hip hop acts, though. Tastes of R&B are provided by Ari Lennox and Lucky Daye. Burna Boy, Doja Cat and IDK are sure to bring exhilarating sets. Soulection is curating a mini-lineup that features the likes of Andre Power, Esta and Sasha Marie. If you’re not sold already, the festival poster teases that more special guests will be announced.

Broccoli City Fest will take place on May 7-9. General admission and VIP passes are now available.

Megan Thee Stallion & The Game Turn Up To Her New Song In The Club

“B.I.T.C.H.” is going off.

Megan Thee Stallion came in the game and quickly befriended everyone. Her “Drive The Boat” Instagram posts showed her pouring liquor down the gullets of some of the biggest names in hip hop. It became immediately clear that Meg was the kind of person you want to be around, always bringing the party. The list of rappers that the Houston Hottie is cool with just grew by one more, as she partied with The Game on Friday night (Jan. 24).

The Game posted a video on Instagram of himself and Meg ushering in #GrammyWeekend at a nightclub in Los Angeles. She giddily raps along to her new single, “B.I.T.C.H”, which blasts out of the venue’s speakers. The Game mouths some words that are difficult to make out, but considering the song just dropped yesterday, it would be impressive if he already knows it by heart. He spun the situation into a bar for his caption, writing: “Pulled up on a stallion tonite in a GT500 wit 2200 horse power.” The line seems like a play on Megan Thee STALLION and a MUSTANG GT500, but The Game warned “that’s gone go over they head tho….”

Meg also jammed to “B.I.T.C.H” in a slow-motion twerking clip.
