Rich Homie Quan Flubs Notorious B.I.G. Lyrics

(Radio.com) It might be an artist's worst nightmare: Forgetting the lyrics during a live performance. Rich Homie Quan experienced just that last night (July 11th) when he tried, and failed, to pay tribute to Notorious B.I.G. at the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors.

Lil' Kim invited Rich Homie Quan out to rap part of "Get Money," and although things started off fine, he eventually grew quiet and appeared to forget the song's lyrics. After completing the first rhyme, Rich Homie Quan took to a corner of the stage and improvised hype words to keep the audience on board.

Lil' Kim held her own without his help, but the whole performance ended up feeling soft. Rich Homie Quan sure looked the part, though. He took the stage wearing Biggie's iconic Coogie sweater (via XXL Mag).

Twitter, naturally, wasn't about to let him get away with anything. Viewers have been overloading the social media platform with all sorts of criticisms, including the fact that he chose to dress the part but couldn't actually play the part. See the tweets and watch the flub here.

Britney Spears Teases New Video 'Make Me (Ooh)'

(Radio.com) Britney Spears is getting ready to make a major music drop. Her highly anticipated new single "Make Me (Oooh)" is due out any day now from the sounds of it. She spent much of June teasing her fans with photos from her music video shoot, and now there's a sneak peek available.

Perez Hilton managed to get a full version of the video, and he filmed a brief segment of it to share with his readers (via Idolator). Rather than post a clip, he shot a few seconds of cellphone video while watching "Make Me (Oooh)" on his laptop. He comments over most of it so there's not much by way of audio.

In the brief video, Spears stands front and center wearing a wrapped bathing suit incredibly close to the one seen in her sneak peek for new perfume Private Show. She's surrounded by male dancers dressed in a variety of nude colored bottoms to give an added provocative touch to her new music. Check out the snippet here.

BANKS Releases Disturbing New Video

(Radio.com) If Britney Spears prefers to dance with nearly nude male dancers in her new video "Make Me (Oooh)," BANKS offers viewers a very different, very eery direction, with her new video "F With Myself." She premiered the new song and accompanying video today (July 12th).

In it, BANKS and several dancers that look closer to mannequins than humans contort together in a warehouse. The dancers also wear masks featuring her likeness, which, combined with the setting's low lightning and neon pink touches, lends the whole affair a disturbed feel.

"F- With Myself" is quiet in places but chill overall. It relies on a big, upfront beat and moody synths to carry Banks' perturbed vocals. "This song is about being your own best friend, your own mother, and your own lover," she said in a press release. Read more here.
