Chuck D Reacts To Flavor Flav's Public Enemy Lawsuit

(Radio.com) Last Tuesday, Flavor Flav's attorneys filed a lawsuit against his Public Enemy bandmate Chuck D and seven of the group's business partners for allegedly freezing him out of major money and music decisions.

Chuck went on a lengthy Twitter spree expressing his mixed feelings about the legal situation. "Flav will be ok," he wrote. "@tmz Drama is beneath me considering our Age. It's low entertainment but I definitely like to find those 50 songs he wrote."

Chuck said he has no regrets about the release of the band's Flavor-free new album Nothing is Quick In The Desert and, if anything, Flav has held the group back from appearing more frequently — particularly at benefits for good causes. He specifically mentioned a Harry Belafonte event Flav skipped after the legendary musician inducted Public Enemy into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

"I still believe giving the new @PublicEnemyFTP Album NothingIsQuickInTheDesert…was gratitude for our fans-so get it," he wrote. "I cant accept @PublicEnemyFTP not doin benefits because Flav refuses to do em.So I head to Houston w @prophetsofrage we have done 8 in 1year."

However, the emcee seemed optimistic about reaching an amicable resolution with Flav, blaming the hype man's new representation as the cause of his legal action. Read more here.

Jason Derulo Reveals New Song 'If I'm Lucky'

(Radio.com) Pop star Jason Derulo kicked off the new month with a bang, revealing a new single, "If I'm Lucky," complete with an elaborate lyric video packed with flashy dance movies and choreography. Oh, and there are zombies, too.

The video features Derulo sporting creepy contact lenses, a wide brimmed hat and black duster coat leading a troupe of male dancers sporting the same outfit. As the clip progresses, Derulo and his lookalike dancers are joined by a mob of female dancers made up to appear as zombies.

"I think it sounds like nothing else I write," Derulo told Billboard of the new song. "It's an emotional song that you can dance to. And the subject matter I think is really cool, it's one that has never been talked about — having a love that fails in this life, but it was a love that was so good that maybe the love will work in the next life."

When asked about the zombie-packed lyric video, the singer says it's a setup for what to expect from the official clip, which is forthcoming. "It's the opposite of the actual video, in terms of being way more dancey and death-centric," he explained of the lyric video. "It's also a continuation of the actual video, which ties in from where the lyric video left off. The actual video is a film while the first video is just a huge dance number — when you see the first video, you'll see why this one is first." Watch it here.
