If you wonder how Drake made the jump from point A to point B (or in his parlance, from the bottom to here) a notebook purported to be Drake's Degrassi diary is available for purchase for a cool $54,000. The memorabilia site Moments in Time reportedly discovered the document in a furniture factory once owned by Drake's grandfather.
The journal includes lyrics like the "10 Mack Commandments," a riff on The Notorious B.I.G.'s "10 Crack Commandments": "Show up for your date kinda late/ If she say be there 6/ then be there 8."
"To my knowledge, there haven't been any lyrics from Drake on sale," Moments in Time's Gary Zimet told Radio.com. "The fact that there's so many of them in the notebook, it's such a rare find." Read morehere.
Lana live streamed a video of her inside a recording studio with Antonoff. As she filmed, Antonoff reclined on a cushy leather couch and faint music played in the background.
In addition to the Instagram live update, a Lana fan on Twitter stumbled upon a selfie Lana shared with Antonoff and Marina Diamandis (of Marina and the Diamonds) over the weekend.
Lana's last album Lust For Life dropped last year and featured A-list collaborators, including The Weeknd and Stevie Nicks. The prolific singer-songwriter may be assembling another dream team for her yet-untitled sixth studio album. Watch a fan capture of Lana's hangout with Jack Antonoffhere.

It's been two years since Trainor released Thank You, and, in a new Instagram post, she promised the world that her best music is yet to come. In a handwritten note, Meghan took fans back to the period shortly after her GRAMMY win for Best New Artist. What transpired was a period of physical, creative and emotional renewal.
"After winning a GRAMMY, releasing my second album and going on my third tour, I thought I'd be on top of the world -- but I was wrong, it was exactly the opposite," she wrote. "I endured a severe vocal chord hemorrhage and was forced to have surgery and to cancel all of my remaining concerts and commitments at the end of 2016…It was the darkest place I've ever experienced, and I was unsure if I'd ever come out of it…but I DID!"
Despite the setbacks and challenges, Meghan managed to find love and refocus her musical efforts on her new album. The lead single "No Excuses" drops Thursday morning and she explained to her followers what that title means.
'There are NO EXCUSES, I'm gonna choose happiness..and I can't wait to show you what I've learned/created for this third album. It's my best work yet," she wrote. See Meghan's teasershere.
"I really enjoy [Erik] Killmonger's character, just off the simple fact that he was a villain but he came with some real [talk]," Lamar told the BBC. "He was a villain, but he was loved and misunderstood. So if I could, I'd play a Killmonger for sure."
Lamar curated and contributed to the soundtrack for the current film, which also features SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and SOB x RBE. Read morehere.
In the clip, Clarkson shows love for her fellow judges, starting with Blake Shelton. Shelton makes the mistake of calling Clarkson out as a newbie on The Voice, with the "Since U Been Gone" singer reminding him that she mentored his team all the way back on the show's second season (much to the delight of Adam Levine and Alicia Keys).
It's clear that Clarkson and Shelton will be the source of some serious fireworks this season, with the clip capturing the two playfully bickering on set.
"We're close enough to where I can really mess with him," Clarkson says. She goes on to share that she's toured with Levine in the past, and even dishes that if she was into into women, her woman of choice would be Alicia Keys, calling her "walking zen." Watch ithere.
The listing featured a track titled "My Enemy" featuring The National's Matt Berninger. Berninger is the second high profile guest on the album, which also features Eurythmics' Dave Stewart.
It's not clear when "My Enemy" will get an official, permanent release but for now enjoy a screenshot from the temporary glitch. See the social media posthere.
Black was joined by John Rich of Big & Rich for the show, which will be part of the show's ongoing CMA Songwriters Series. The show will feature Black discussing behind-the-scenes stories regarding his biggest hits over the years.

In our exclusive interview with McCreery, he talks all about his love for music (and sports), most memorable career moments, and why he feels "so fortunate" today.
'If you listen to this album from the first song to the very last song, you're going to get to know me a lot better," McCreery said. Every track on Seasons Change was co-written by McCreery himself and were all inspired by true-life events. The 24-year-old's new songs will reflect on everything from moving out on his own, life as a college student, losing his grandfather, releasing a book, proposing to his high school sweetheart, and so much more.
