Chris Brown Gets Into Altercation With Migos

(Radio.com) Migos and Chris Brown both performed at Sunday night's BET Awards, but the real show started after Brown debuted the video for "PIE" at an afterparty. Brown and members of the rap group got into a physical altercation in a parking garage, TMZ reports.

Footage of the standoff hit Twitter and shows two figures in a tense exchange. Witnesses told TMZ that Brown pushed Migos' Quavo but the confrontation was quickly defused.

The report notes that police were called to the scene but by then, the fight had fizzled. Migos and Joe Budden had a verbal dispute of their own during the BET Awards pre-show--a night of squabbles for hip-hop's rising stars.

Newsweek reports that Migos' Quavo is currently dating Brown's ex Karreuche Tran--who has pressed domestic violence charges against the singer in the past. Watch some footage from the "fight" here.

Lil Kim Allegedly A Person Of Interest In Robbery

(Radio.com) A new report names rapper Lil Kim as a person of interest in a Los Angeles robbery investigation. The alleged crime was committed at a house where Kim was set to host a BET Awards party on Saturday night.

According to TMZ, Kim and her entourage arrived at the house late last night and surveyed the party. Unsatisfied with the accommodations, they turned to leave and "demanded their money back from either the owner or property manager."

When those parties declined to refund Kim's money, LAPD sources say someone called the cops. Because the dispute was a civil matter, law enforcement reportedly did not intervene. Later in the night, TMZ reports that "a group of people showed up at the house with ski masks and weapons," seizing Kim's deposit check and cash--for a grand total of "at least $20k."

She continued in five more tweets, writing, "royals was, to quote david chase, 'a moonshot, a dreadnought'. there were no such guarantees with melodrama--that's why this means so much … when i was a kid i thought big records had to be made a certain way--to be sterile & calculated in craft; that something had to be sacrificed … i have had the divine thrill of disproving that firsthand, twice over."

Bruno Mars And David Guetta Reveal 'Versace on The Floor' Remix

(Radio.com) Bruno Mars' hit track "Versace on the Floor" just got a little more funky with the help of David Guetta. The French DJ/producer premiered the remix during a performance on Monday night (June 26).

"I'm super proud that I had the opportunity to work with Bruno Mars on 'Versace on the Floor.' It is more than a remix; it is a collaboration and combination of different worlds together. My goal was to make it more dance and DJ friendly, but still respect the music that he came with, and keep the song and his voice in tact because it's so beautiful.

"I hoped to create something that would not just be for one community, just like Bruno makes quality music that speaks to a wide audience. He's really a next level musician and songwriter. I knew that already, but by working on his music I realized it even more so."

As a disclaimer before he debuted the new tune, Guetta said, "it's a little different from what I usually play here, it's a little softer." The new version adds retro synths and vocoded lines, giving it just a little more "oomph." Listen to and watch the Guetta's live performance of "Versace on The Floor" here.

"I know as a listener, I want to be able to believe who I am listening to, and I am that kind of guy. No matter what the subject matter in my songs, in some form or facet I have lived, am living, or plan to be living that song." Watch "Redneck Life" here.

Singled Out: Midnight Beach's Fantasy

Clearwater, FL electro-pop duo Midnight Beach are gearing up to release their self-titled debut album on July 14th to celebrate we asked Steve Alex to tell us about their first single "Fantasy". Here is the story:

Back in January of 2016, Vovi Vu, who produced the song, sent me basic tracks centered on the intro synth/piano stabs. It had the chorus part too, but the arrangement wasn't in place yet. I recorded some temp vocals over it, originally calling the song "Don't Let Go". Where the chorus now sings "we have pretended for so long/we were so right/now it's just a fantasy…" used to be a repetitive "don't let go" 3 times, then it said "here comes the line". While we were building the arrangement, we both knew that the chorus lyrics were lazy. Vovi wanted to know when "the line was coming?" He had a point. I knew it needed a rework too. Maybe I was telling myself that the hook line was coming (a lot of times I sing lyrics, knowing they are just place-holders for a revision). Anyway, the chorus took on the "Fantasy" theme, inspired by the synth sound he uses in the chorus. It's very shimmery with sparkling arpeggios. Even more so, the bridge uses that same synth to create a dreamy, fantasy-like breakdown section. It has this sort of hazy, psychedelic feel to it, it's probably my favorite part of the song.

Once the song became "Fantasy" finished pretty quickly. The verse lyrics lined up with the new chorus by changing a few lines. The drum parts have a late eighties dance vibe to them. They remind me of Janet Jackson, Stevie B, Lisa Lisa, stuff from Club MTV days. Overall, the song is pretty lively but a little melancholy; because it's about longing for something in the past. Like most of the songs on this album, it lands somewhere in the middle of the style spectrums. Not up or down, happy or sad, but that in-between feeling that's hard to explain.

Vovi gets credit on our team for generally not settling on first ideas. This song is a perfect example. I often run with the first thing that comes to mind, wrap it up and move on to the next song. He has a meticulous attention to detail. I'm beginning to work that way a little more now. While at times our heads butted during the production, the balance of our two working modes ended up producing a fine album which will be out in a couple weeks.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
