27 Songs For Drake’s 27th

 |  October 24, 2013

Happy Birthday Aubrey. Or as they say in Yiddish, A freilekhn geburtstog! Or something like that.

The boy from Toronto turns 27 today. We figured, what better way to celebrate the 27th anniversary of Drake’s birth than to reflect on his career-long body of work? From Comeback Season to Nothing Was The Same, we compiled (at least what we think are) the 27 strongest tracks from his catalogue. Read More

R&B crooner Lloyd made an impressive showing this week by moving over 26,000 copies of his latest album, King Of Hearts.   Arguably more impressive is Kendrick Lamar, who sold nearly 10,000 units during his first full week on the chart.  Last week, Kendrick moved over 5,000 copies of Section.80 in a 3 day period, as his album dropped on a Saturday.  The cumulative figures come as quite a victory for the burgeoning L.A. artist who released his project exclusively in digital format.  Finally, Common’s latest digital single, “Ghetto Dreams” featuring Nas landed him in a nice sales position, proving that the East Coast and Midwest still have love these timeless emcees.

Lloyd “King Of Hearts” – 26,363 (22% digital)

Common “Ghetto Dreams” ft Nas [Single] 11,448 (100% digital) [listen]

Kendrick Lamar “Section.80” – 9,522 (100% digital) (two week total) [read review]

Check back Friday for industry news.

I’m not sure if the appropriate reaction would be laughing or smh after learning that Lloyd implied he is an intimidating person while addressing the dramatic hair R&Beef with Miguel.

Much to my dismay, there was no dance off nor snapping in Z formation when the two of singer “took it to the streets.” This past weekend backstage at  Z107.9′s Summer Jam in Cleveland, the two R&B singers crossed paths and Z107.9 thankfully was there to capture the chick…I mean bro fight.

Lloyd really let Miguel know how the beef made him feel on the inside, “”I just felt like it was disrespectful. On some real shit, it was cheap and I felt like it was distasteful. The fact is I wasn’t trying to imitate you.”

Apparently that’s all that was needed to be said to pull an apology out of Miguel, because he didn’t even attempt to stand his ground telling Lloyd, “The fact that I said it on Twitter was f*cked up and I apologize for that.”


Lloyd and Miguel are teaching everyone what starts beef between R&B artists and apparently that is copying another’s hairstyle. Yes, two grown ass men are arguing and “taking it to the streets” over a hair cut.

Yesterday Lloyd made an appearance on 106 & Park rocking this ridiculous new hair style, which he explained to Rocsi and Terrance that his cut was a tribute  to his grandfather who died July 4th of last year and the guns and roses were significant because his grandfather was a walking contrast (okay?)


Well Miguel was not having that and took to his twitter to send a not so subtle message…

Of course Lloyd needed to defend himself and his hair, so when he spoke with L.A. radio personality Devi Dev he sent Miguel his own message saying , “I’ll see him when I see him.”

Aww snap! In the R&B world do you settle beef with a dance off? If so it’s about to go down, Step Up 4 Beef In The Streets?
