Chris Brown Dismiss Rihanna & Beyonce Fans, Put Some Respect On My Name




Chris Brown wants fans of Rihanna and Beyonce to put some respect on his name.

The R&B singer sparked a heated debate among fans earlier this week when he says he would love to go on tour with Rihanna, Beyonce and Bruno Mars. While some fans and even myself think it would be dope to have a tour with these four artists, others think Chris Brown is not a big enough artist to want to tour with the other three acts.

“Chris your not big enough to want a tour with RiRi and Beyonce, your not even big enough like Bruno Mars so please sit your azz down and be humble, in my Kendrick Lamar voice,” one fan wrote while another added on Twitter, “I’m actually very tired of people who think Chris Brown is a better entertainer than Beyoncé. It’s embarrassing that you even think he is on her level. I’ve said this time without number, Beyoncé is the best entertainer of our era.”

Chris Brown posted a video of one of his loyal fans defending his honor and I got to admit, the fan has a point. “What the f*** is wrong with people trying to tarnish this dude’s legacy like this dude is not elite, this is the same dude that controls a whole generation of R&B,” the fan said in his video rant. “So we going to sit here and act like Chris Brown is not the closest thing to Michael Jackson, like he don’t do everything. Are you f***ing kidding me, the dude has been elite since he was 15 years old. This is the same man that bodies every feature and turn a whack song into a hit. What is a song without a Chris Brown feature.”

Breezy also shared his personal reaction to the chatters by reminding fans that his last album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, is certified platinum. “SAY WHAT U WANT… really wouldn’t matter at this point. GREATNESS DEFENDS AND SPEAKS FOR ITSELF,” he tweeted.

JAY-Z Left Grammys Empty Handed But Still Got The Biggest Award




JAY-Z was completely snubbed at the 60th annual Grammy Awards in New York, almost.

Hov, who is one of the most decorated artists in the history of the Grammy, went home empty-handed at this year’s awards. The “4:44” rapper went into the ceremony the Madison Square Gardens with the most nominations, but lost on each of his eight nods to either Kendrick Lamar or Bruno Mars. In fact, K-Dot and Mars almost sweep every category they were nominated in.

Thankfully, the good folks at the Recording Academy recognized JAY-Z’s contribution to music the night before by honoring him with an industry icon award. But that was not enough to appease fans who were very vocal about their discontentment on social media on Sunday night. JAY-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, was this year’s Salute to Industry Icons honoree. The rap legend received a tribute performance from Alicia Keys and thus received the President’s Merit Award.

“We can pretend that we don’t care, but we really care, ’cause we seen the most incredible artists stand on those stages and we aspire to be that,” the rap mogul said while accepting the award. “So I was like, I have to be here. That is the idea for us to all get involved and to push this thing further. For the people that come before us, it’s our duty. It’s our duty to make sure that, you know, not only are we making the greatest art, that we upholding and supporting the things that’s super real. I’m super humble, and I’m super appreciative of the Academy and everybody here tonight.”

During her performance, Alicia Keys belted out some vocals to her collaboration with JAY-Z, “Empire State of Mind,” before performing some of his classics including “Dead President II” and “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem).” Jay also turned down a chance to perform at the Grammy’s as if he had an idea that he would be snubbed in the end. Nevertheless, it was a bit embarrassing to watch Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Childish Gambino, and others accept one after another Grammy and Hov just sitting there.

JAY-Z Will Not Be Performing At 2018 Grammy’s Despite Reports


JAY-Z will not be performing at this weekend’s 2018 Grammy Awards despite recent reports suggesting that he will.

Hov is going into the Grammys with the most nominations this year and everything assumed that he would be taking the stage possibly with Beyonce to perform “Family Feud” or even “4:44.” JAY-Z made a grand return to the music scene last year with his blockbuster album 4:44. That project is one of the most respected albums last year and will go down in history as one of the rap legend’s best body of work.

In the fall last year, JAY-Z went on tour to promote the album and that tour turned out to be his highest grossing solo tour ever. So it’s safe to say that he has been breaking new boundaries. Last week there was some reporting floating around online claiming that Hov will be performing at the Grammy’s, but now Hits Daily Double is countering those chatters with new reports that he has no plans to take the stage.

The Grammy’s has already announced an all-star lineup including acts like Bruno Mars, Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Childish Gambino and more. The last time JAY-Z performed at the Grammy’s was back in 2014 when he took the stage with Beyonce to perform “Drunk In Love: from her self-titled album. This year a performance on the big stage would be like icing on the cake for Jay’s fans given the success of his 4:44 album.

Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be performing their new hit “Finesse” while DJ Khaled and Rihanna will be performing their monster hit “Wild Thoughts. The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Gardens in New York on Sunday night. Stay tuned to DancehallHipHop for more reporting on the Grammy’s, particularly the Best Reggae Album category. It will be interesting to see who win.


Bruno Mars Sued Over “Uptown Funk” Rap Group Claims Rip Off


Bruno Mars has a new lawsuit on his hands over “Uptown Funk.”

The pop singer and Mark Ronson scored a massive hit with their collaborative single “Uptown Funk.” The single was released in 2014 and went on to become one of the biggest song on the planet that year and is still in heavy rotation on radios to date. The retro music video for “Uptown Funk” has already clocked close to three billion views on YouTube. But after making millions off the single, here comes a new lawsuit from a rap group who claim that they rip off their song, TMZ reported.

The Sequence claimed that Bruno Mars and Ronson ripped off their 1970s classic “Funk You Up” which created history in 1979 when it became the first rap son to reach the top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In their suit, the female trio claim that “Uptown Funk” has “significant and substantially similar compositional elements.” They are asking for an unspecified sum in their suit.

This is the second lawsuit the two singers are facing in the last couple of months. Back in September of this year, Roger Troutman and Zapp filed legal docs claiming that Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson stole pieces of their song “More Bounce to the Ounce” which was released in 1980.
