But a true test of hip hop prowess may be coming. According to a New York City's Hot 97's DJ Ebro, Eminem is preparing to make his very own Drake diss track. (listen to the broadcast here).
That same DJ claims to have spoken with Drake, who feels that such an attack is unlikely, but is ready should the gauntlet be thrown down. Read more here.
"Private Show" finds Spears showing off her funky side, which comes across in the snaps, claps and other percussive flares the song exhibits. Sure, it also contains instrumentation and synths (the elements listeners expect from a pop song-especially a Spears pop song), but "Private Show" feels largely stripped of those additions so that Spears' vocals can shine.
Spears delves into her deeper register on the second part of the chorus, singing "Work it work it, boy watch me work it/ Slide down my pole watch me spin it and twerk it." The way she plays with the meter provides an extra emphasis to the lyric's staccato-like rhythm, and shows a new direction for the singer. And then there's the bridge.
Recorded to give her voice a raw tinge, Spears goes full on fierce. She practically screams, "Strut it out, strut it out/ Eyes on me/ Watch me strike a pose/ Feel my heat." Glory will be released on August 26th. Listen to "Private Show" here.
Mariah's World will be a limited episode docu-series with only eight chances for viewers to see inside the singer's life. The show takes place as she prepares her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour in Europe, the UK and Africa, all while planning her wedding to fiance James Packer and being a mother to her two children with Nick Cannon.
The world may be familiar with Carey the diva, but the show aims to show all the different facets of her personality and life. As the tagline promotes, "It's Mariah's World, we're just living in it!" Mariah's World premieres December 4th. Watch a clip here.
The words of the song speak directly to the team. "Who's been working so damn hard/ You got that head on overload/ Got yourself this flawless body/ Aching now from head to toe."
The song encourages and inspires listeners not to quit, but to keep on going. It's a "we believe in you" type of song. The 2016 Summer Olympics kick off on Friday night with the opening ceremonies from Rio de Janeiro. Read more here.
On Instagram, The Game shared a picture of Zachaeus Water. In May, Zachaeus was reportedly shot in the face on his third birthday by his mother's boyfriend, Nathaniel Dixon (via ABC11).

The Game wrote on the social media app, "My son @HvrlemTaylor found this story & keeping it, literally brought tears to my eyes so I immediately contacted the father & decided to make you all aware of this baby's story so we could do what we do & raise $5000 quickly for him." Read more here.

"I don't want to change anything about the role or how she develops," she said, according to ETOnline. "I just love Penny and it's such a great honor to play her. I don't want any special icing or parts."
The return to her musical theater roots reminded her where she got her start. "Penny's been my favorite character since the start," she said. "This is such a dream come true for me because at heart, theater is everything to me… Pop music is so fun, but this is way much more fun. So much more." Read more here.
When Kalysha announced her pregnancy in 2015 and claimed Fetty as the father, it seemed like news to him. In the show's trailer, which follows Fetty and Kalysha while she's still pregnant, she questions going to court over her baby. "I was in a relationship with a rapper," she says in the trailer. "Everything was amazing and then I got pregnant. He decided to pretty much deny that this is his child."
Fetty later changed his tune and both welcomed their daughter into the world in early 2016, but they've continued to spar online (via XXL Mag). In late June, Kalysha got mad at Fetty for posting a picture of their daughter. The couple had reportedly agreed to keep their daughter out of the spotlight during the first three months of her life. Kalysha also questioned his commitment as a father, claiming he hadn't visited child like he said he would.
