Lil Wayne To Release Three Albums In 2017 Including 'Tha Carter V'

(Radio.com) In late 2016, Lil Wayne promised his fans that he had a "bunch of good news coming soon," and now what he meant is becoming slightly clearer. The rapper announced that he has not one, not two, but three albums coming in 2017.

Lil Wayne posted a photo on his Facebook page today (January 4th), but it's the caption that might interest fans more than what the photo displays. "CV. Funeral. D6. Young Money," he wrote.

In late November, Lil Wayne said he had a new album Funeral on the way in 2017. As for "CV" and "D6," those refer to the long-delayed and highly anticipated Tha Carter V, as well as the mixtape Dedication 6. Wayne last released Dedication 5 in 2013. Read more here.

James Corden Emotional Discussing George Michael's 'Carpool Karaoke'

(Radio.com) James Corden returned from holiday break Tuesday night (January 3rd) with new episodes of The Late Late Show, and he took a moment to discuss the impact George Michael had on him as a music fan and a comedian.

Michael participated in a sketch with Corden for Comic Relief in 2011 that would eventually become the now-famous "Carpool Karaoke." Corden recounted, "It was the first time I ever sang in a car with anybody."

Growing more emotional as he spoke, Corden went on to explain how producers used the tape to entice other artists to participate in the show's new bit "Carpool Karaoke" once he became The Late Late Show's host. "When we started the show here [in the States], we would try to get people to do 'Carpool Karaoke,' and not many artists wanted to do it," Corden said. "We would send them this clip of me and George, and we sent it to Mariah Carey, and she was the first person to say yes. Her words were, 'If it's good enough for George, then it's good enough for me'."

Michael helped paved the way for the show's viral hit, and it's something Corden hasn't ever forgotten. Towards the beginning of his speech, Corden admitted, "I feel like I've loved George Michael as long as I've loved music in a way." Watch the original version of what would become "Carpool Karaoke" here.

Soulja Boy Apologizes For Chris Brown Feud

(Radio.com) Soulja Boy has been beefing with Chris Brown since the start of 2017 with Brown even inviting him into the boxing ring to settle their differences. But it seems like cooler heads have prevailed because Soulja Boy changed his tune Tuesday (January 4th) when he posted a video message apologizing for acting like a "hot boy."

Standing shirtless against a wall, Soulja Boy addressed his fans. "I just want to send an apology," he said. "Over the past couple of months, I've been acting out, I've been wildin' out, and at the end of the day it's not about who start the beefs, it's about who end them."

He talked about the emotional state he's been in ever since his mother was taken to the hospital. Although he doesn't go into details about what sent her there, he explained that it left him feeling raw. "No amount of money, no amount of cars, no amount of fame would make me be alright, you know, with knowing my mom's sick or anything happen to my mom," he said. "I love my mother."

That love translated into acknowledging his actions in recent days. "I know she's not proud of my actions and what I've been doing recently," he said. Soulja Boy added at the end, "I want to make music with Chris Brown, Yachty, Quavo, everybody." Watch the video here.

Mariah Carey Was 'Mortified' During NYE Performance

(Radio.com) Mariah Carey may have taken her disastrous performance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest in stride by cheekily tweeting about it the next morning, but questions are still circulating about whose to blame. Both sides--Carey's camp and Dick Clark Productions--blame the other.

In her first interview since that performance, Carey spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the six minutes that ruined her New Year's Eve. Having worked with the show and its namesake before, she claimed if Clark were still involved the night wouldn't have unfolded the way it did.

"I'm of the opinion that Dick Clark would not have let an artist go through that and he would have been as mortified as I was in real time," she said. Read more here.
