Destiny's Child Spark Reunion Rumors

(Radio.com) An online move has Destiny's Child fans believing that a reunion may be in the making. Destiny's Child celebrate their 20th anniversary next year and the 11th anniversary of their final breakup. Since then, each artist has gone on to her own solo success: Kelly Rowland as a talent show judge and low-key hitmaker, Michelle Williams as a gospel music superstar and Beyonce as, well, Beyonce.

A verified Instagram for the trio emerged yesterday and has celebrated some milestones in Destiny's Child history --could it suggest a full reunion? Fans seem to think so.

Since 2006, the trio appeared on Williams' track "Say Yes" and during Beyonce's 2013 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance. They haven't been too shy to get the band back together when the right project comes along, so why not a 20th anniversary reunion? Read more here.

Meek Mill Disses Drake On 'Dreamchasers 4'?

On Lanez' track "Litty," Meek drops a reference to Quentin Miller, who allegedly has written raps for Drake. The ghostwriter controversy boils over near the end of the track.

"They be making memes, I be making millions / I just counted up a Quinten Miller / A Q.M, that's a quarter milli," Meek raps. Snippets of material have been available (via Instagram tease) for a week, but the entire mixtape is available to stream on Spotify and other services. Listen to the full tape here.

Lady Gaga's Los Angeles Dive Bar Performance Goes Online

(Radio.com) A pre-Fame Lady Gaga earned her stripes playing dives and cabarets in downtown Manhattan -- at least, that's how the legend goes. So it's fitting that throughout the promotional campaign for her fourth studio album Joanne, Gaga has gone back to basics with a major sponsor: Bud Light.

The Lady Gaga x Bud Light concert series has already yielded some great live performances, ads, and other content. And last night Gaga livestreamed a dive bar performance in Los Angeles that's worth a watch.

During her set, she performed highlights from Joanne including "Come to Mama," "Angel Down," the title track and "Perfect Illusion." Mark Ronson made an appearance, and the crowd loved every moment. Watch Gaga's L.A. dive concert here.

Damian Lillard Forced To Remove Lil Wayne From Track

(Radio.com) It doesn't matter that Lil Wayne has contributed features to Chance the Rapper's mixtape Coloring Book or to Young Jeezy's upcoming mixtape Trap or Die 3.

When it comes to his appearance The Letter O, the debut album from Portland Trail Blazers guard turned rapper Damian Lillard, Lil Wayne's label doesn't want him participating.

Lil Wayne appears on the track "Loyal to the Soil," but according to Lillard's Twitter account he won't be part of it for long. "I am being forced to remove Lil Wayne from #TheLetterO track 'Loyal to the Soil'" Lillard tweeted on Tuesday (Oct. 25).

Chance the Rapper Gets Chicago Cubs Mashup

(Radio.com) Chicago superstar Chance the Rapper has been burning up the charts with his hit single "No Problem" featuring 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne, so it makes sense that someone would borrow that track to cheer on the Chicago Cubs as they play the Cleveland Indians in the 2016 MLB World Series.

One inventive musical mind mashed up "No Problem" with the official anthem of the Cubs, Steven Goodman's "Go Cubs Go," to create "World Series No Problem."

Chance is a fan of the Chicago White Sox, but even he's getting in the spirit of the series. He's been tweeting his support of the team, including retweeting President Barack Obama--a proclaimed White Sox fan--who was excited to see the Cubs in the finals. When one of Chance's fans said he wouldn't be happy about the mash-up being used against a rival team, he tweeted out a very different response. "I f with it," he wrote.

It's got Chance's approval so it must be good. Listen to The Hood Internet's "World Series No Problem" below. Read more here.

Shakira And Black M Release Duet 'Comme Moi'

(Radio.com) Shakira fans have long been able to enjoy her catalog in English and Spanish, but her new collaboration with Black M throws some French into the mix.

The duet "Comme Moi" features Shakira (singing in English) and the French rapper performing in his native tongue. The breezy dance track has a Latin American flair and all the flirtatious energy you'd expect from the woman whose breakthrough hit was "Whenever, Wherever."

Black M's hit "Les yeux plus gros que le monde" brought the French-Guinean rapper to international attention in 2014, so Shakira's cross-cultural appeal is a perfect fit for his new single. On the track, she sings that she never meant to do her lover wrong. Read more here.

Niall Horan Asked His 'Least Favorite' One Direction Member

(Radio.com) One Direction's Niall Horan stopped by The Late Late Show on Wednesday night (Oct. 26) to perform his new single "This Town" which he surprised fans with last month.

He also took time to chat with host James Corden and guests Ewan McGregor and Isla Fisher for a gruesome game of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts," in which he was peppered with some pretty tough questions.

When asked who his least favorite member of One Direction was, Fisher acted as publicist and advised him to take a swig of the "salmon smoothie" instead of becoming the headline of a Daily Mail article. Horan did, however, reveal whether he'd rather spend his last night on earth with Selena Gomez or Ellie Goulding. Watch it here.

Justin Timberlake Joins Jimmy Fallon at Camp

(Radio.com) Justin Timberlake visited The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday evening (Oct. 26) and participated in a skit in which he and Fallon went back to summer camp.

The setting was past lights out at Camp Winnipesaukee in 1996 where a young brace-faced and curly-haired Timberlake was trying to rest when his friend, Fallon, asked him if he was sleeping. The two begin chatting and Timberlake reveals that he will be dressing up as the television character Blossom for Halloween after rejecting the idea of Steve Urkel and Zack Morris.

In a room surrounded by childhood games of the '90s like Guess Who? and Battleship, the two friends decide to sing a song they heard on the radio earlier that day-- "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette.

Since it's past their bedtime, Fallon and Timberlake sing in whispered voices, but when it comes to the chorus they can't help but belt it at the top of their lungs. Watch the clip here.

Jeopardy Host Alex Trebek Raps Drake and Future's 'Jumpman'

(Radio.com) Seeing how hip-hop has become a pop culture phenomenon it's not surprising that questions about the music genre occasionally appear on TV game shows. But to watch Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek rapping Drake and Future's "Jumpman" bordered on surreal.

And Trebek demonstrated his flow (or lack thereof) when delivering the question. The correct answer--delivered in the form of a question--was "Who is Drake?" Watch Trebek spit Drizzy here.

A Look Back At Amy Winehouse's 'Back to Black' Ten Years Later

(Radio.com) This week marks ten years since Amy Winehouse released her classic Back to Black in England (the album wouldn't hit the U.S. until early 2007). Her second studio album, it launched the singer to superstardom, and won five GRAMMY awards, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best New Artist. Here, we take a look back at Winehouse's last studio album before her 2011 death claimed the talented singer/songwriter far before her time.

A stark declaration launched "Rehab," the opening track from Amy Winehouse's Back to Black. "They tried to make me go to rehab," the British singer intoned before offering up her response to that suggestion, "No, no, no." There was no melodic intro, no rhythmic build-up; instead, Winehouse's vocals crashed through the song's opening. She wasn't going to waste a breath mincing words. It was clear that she was different from the other pop stars of the era.

Arriving in 2006 after the highly acclaimed but less popular Frank, Back to Black took pop music on a journey. There were soulful beats, old school R&B flares and jazzy inflections, yet it sounded current because of its hip-hop swagger. Thanks to that mixture of "then and now," it stood out among the year's big hits, like Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveSounds, Beyonce's B'day and Christina Aguilera's Back to Basics. It stayed cool where Timberlake wanted to rev up the club, it vocalized an addictive relationship where Beyonce sang about independence and it made a statement where Aguilera straddled the line between her former image and her "dirrtier" side.

Winehouse's love of classic sounds like Motown, Stax and '60s and '70s R&B informed the songs on Back to Black. There was her take on "Me and Mrs. Jones": "Me & Mr. Jones" ("Mr. Jones" was a reference to Nas, whose real name is Nasir Jones). On "Tears Dry on Their Own," she played with the central melodic riff in the classic "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Her references allowed her to combine the past with the present in a way that made her seem all at once timeless and current, but most of all very cool. And the industry was enamored with her voice, her songs, her style and her persona. Read more here.
