Kanye West shared a video of his daughter, North West, showing off her ideas for a music video for their collab track off his upcoming album ‘Vultures.’ Justin Timberlake is back: The singer dropped his new track titled “Selfish” and announced a one-night-only show in NYC. Mel B is teasing the Spice Girls’ upcoming project that will feature all five members. Jennifer Lopez is set to be a musical guest on ‘SNL.’ And more!
50 Cent’s weight loss, a North West music video and Meek Mill charges what? JT’s tour, all five Spice Girls and J.Lo on a Saturday — we head over to the Tok for the top songs as we explain the massive success of Alicia Keys and spend some extra time with Julia Michaels.
Hey guys, it’s Tetris and welcome to the Thursday, January 25th, episode of Billboard News. Let’s get busy with three things you should know in hip-hop.
Fans are saying 50 Cent looks like 25 Cent after the iconic rapper is looking much slimmer than usual in an IG post. Users are quick to say he is probably using popular weight loss drug Ozempic. Well, a source told Page Six he’s not on Ozempic and has been on a rigorous training program for eight months. My thoughts are: just be honest. So many people are using it to get skinny now, so just be proud of you — no shame in the game.
Meek Mill has zero shame. The hip-hop heavyweight jumped on Twitter to say, “Every time I do a verse I charge 250k and up if you got 150k on site and I like the song we can swap it out.” 150k down payment — you’re charging them Nicki Minaj prices. Maybe he learned that when they dated, but does a Meek Mill verse help the way a Nicki feature can?
Like father, like daughter: Kanye West has jumped on Instagram to share a storyboard of what seems to be a video he’s working on with daughter North West. He captioned the video: “treatment by your bestie Miss Westie.” I love their bond. North is definitely going to be somebody we see a lot of in the future.
