Frank Ocean Hints At Collaboration With Drake

(Radio.com) After releasing his brand new single "Chanel" this past weekend, Frank Ocean looks like he's teasing fans about more new music. And that could involve a collaboration with Drake.

The rapper posted a shirtless photo on his Tumblr account. Standing in a bathroom, Ocean looked straight into the camera while crossing his fingers. But it's what he wrote that has fans wondering if the two are going to work together. "cuz the 6 has the aux cable," Ocean shared.

"The 6" is what Drake calls Toronto, and considering Ocean's post came shortly around the time Drake posted an update about his forthcoming playlist project More Life, some believe it's a tease about a possible collaboration between the two. But it also could refer to the iPhone 6 Ocean has in his hand since the iPhone 7 no longer has a headphone jack. See the post here.

Adele Becomes Comedian Following Concert Power Outage

(Radio.com) It is evident that Adele is a born entertainer. When the power went out temporarily Monday night (March 13) during a show in Adelaide, Australia, Adele switched gears from singer to comedian in mere seconds, NME reports.

'So we're having a technical difficulty," she told her audience. 'I'm not quite sure what it is. Shall I try and tell some jokes?" The power outage silenced her band's instruments, but apparently not her mic. So the singer kept entertaining the crowd.

"Our power has gone out under the stage, so who knows how long we're going to be doing this for," she confessed. 'Shall I tell you my filthy joke despite all the children here? I need more applause than that because I might offend someone. What do you call a blonde standing on her head? A brunette with bad breath."

Minutes later the power was restored, much to her relief, and likely the parents in the crowd, too. She closed her set with the poignant "Someone Like You" but before she did she apologized once again.Read more here.

"It's like getting in a plane. I just flew, man. I'm a magician, like David Blaine. I could never fall. Drake is an amazing person. Also, a magician. He's a big brother, super-talent, he's cool." Read more here.

The clip begins with Fallon and Bryan wandering the New York City streets until they get hungry. "Hey, want some lunch? I'm buying," Fallon asks Bryan as they walk up to a street food cart. When asked what he wants to eat, Bryan has some trouble.

"The ah, you know . . . that thing there . . . the brown stuff," Bryan says frustrated. "Man, I'm good." When Fallon asks Bryan what's wrong, Bryan begins to share his troubles as the setting segues into the studio. "I was born in Southwest Georgia/ Always tried to make my daddy proud/ But of all the things I learned there/ Never learned to say that word out loud," Bryan sang.

During the four-minute Bryan draws a gyro in his notebook and throws it on the floor when he can't seem to pronounce the street meat. Later, Fallon tries to help him pronounce it, but Bryan confuses him so much he's not quite sure how. Watch the clip here.

"It starts with the OGs of this disruptive force in entertainment, spotlights some of the lesser known artists who've fallen out of history or favor, and of course looks at the icons who are now household names whether you're in LA or London, Toledo or Tokyo."

(Radio.com) Actress Lea Michele, best known from the Fox TV series "Glee" shared "Anything's Possible." The track is the second single off her forthcoming sophomore album Places, which is set to be released on April 28th.

The song builds into an chant about pushing past doubt and finding hope even in the darkest moments. There's a touch of musical theater to the instrumentation and arrangement, which feeds into Michele's background on Broadway.

"When it came time to name my album, I settled on 'Places' because this album for me represents a return to form, a return to the stage, and a return to the place I belong," Michele said in a statement. "When you perform on Broadway the word 'Places' is the last thing you hear over the loudspeaker before a show is about to begin. 'Places' I thought was the perfect title for this music and how it reflects who I am as an artist today and where I come from." Read more here.

Miranda Lambert Duets With Her Boyfriend At Recent Concert

(Radio.com) Even though Miranda Lambert and boyfriend Anderson East have written and recorded music together, and she's occasionally brought him out onstage for some fun, they tend to remain low key as a couple.

But lucky fans caught a glimpse of just how much they dig one another during Lambert's 2017 Highway Vagabond Tour stop in Bossier City, Louisiana on Sunday (March 12th).

She invited her beau onstage to sing the Faces' 1971 single "Stay With Me" and while performing together they couldn't help getting a little flirty. As soon as East walked onstage, Lambert meandered over to him and planted a kiss on his cheek. From there, things only got sweeter. They couldn't help dancing with each other throughout the song, and both wore big bright smiles.

East helped co-write several songs on Lambert's latest album The Weight of These Wings, including the duet he sang with her, "Pushin' Time." A fan in the audience captured their time together. Watch it here.
