Rae Sremmurd's Releasing Triple Album Says Mike WiLL Made-It

(Radio.com) Rae Sremmurd burst onto the scene with the one-two punch of SremmLife (2015) and SremmLife 2 (2016). Producer Mike WiLL Made-It recently said that the group's third record will be well worth the wait since it will include three albums in one.

On the GRAMMY red carpet, Mike told Pitchfork, "We got the Swae Lee, Swaecation, [Slim] Jxmmi's Jxmtroduction, and then the Rae Sremmurd side."

That's a solo-ish album for each brother, as well as a third joint effort. Mike WiLL Made-It's comments are a bit at odds with previous reports on the new Rae Sremmurd. Read about that here.

Alessia Cara Reacts To Grammy Win Backlash

(Radio.com) Alessia Cara was moved to respond to social media criticisms of her Best New Artist win at the 60th annual GRAMMY awards ceremony on Sunday night (Jan. 28).

"To address the apparent backlash regarding winning something I had no control over: I didn't log onto grammy.com and submit myself. that's not how it works," Cara posted on Instagram. "I didn't ask to be submitted either because there are other artists that deserve the acknowledgment. But I was nominated and won and I am not going to be upset about something I've wanted since I was a kid, not to mention have worked really hard for."

"I meant everything I said about everyone deserving the same shot," she continued. "There is a big issue in the industry that perpetuates the idea that an artist's talent and hard work should take a back seat to popularity and numbers. and I'm aware that my music wasn't released yesterday, I'm aware that, yes, my music has become fairly popular in the last year. But I'm trying very hard to use the platform I've been given to talk about these things and bring light to issues that aren't fair, all while trying to make the most of the weird, amazing success I've been lucky enough to have. I will not let everything I've worked for be diminished by people taking offense to my accomplishments."

Cara was up against SZA, Julia Michaels, Khalid and Lil Uzi Vert in the category. Read Cara's full post here.
