CHRIS BROWN AND DRAKE STOP BEEFING, RELEASE A NEW TRACK TOGETHER ‘NO GUIDANCE’

drake brownAmerican artist Chris Brown and Canadian rapper Drake have buried the hatchet and are finally playing nice.

On early Saturday (08.06.19), Brown released ‘No Guidance’ featuring the ‘God’s plan’ crooner Drake. The jam is the first single off Brown’s upcoming album ‘Indigo’, which is set to be released on June 28th, 2019.

The two have had a rocky relationship over the years, which has played out via bar fights, petty social media posts and subliminal shots fired in lyrics. A boxing promoter even offered them each $1 million to fight it out.

They seemed to put the past behind them last year when Drake brought out Chris Brown at a tour stop in Los Angeles but there’s no telling with these two they might just be doing all this for the clout.

‘No Guidance’ is the first time Breezy and Drizzy have appeared on a song together in five years when they both featured on Nicki Minaj’s song ‘Only’ in 2014.

RIHANNA’S MOST ANTICIPATED ALBUM ISN’T FINISHED

Rihana19Internationally acclaimed hitmaker Rihanna doesn't know when her next album will be released, because the material still isn't finished.

The 31-year-old singer has been keeping fans waiting for her ninth studio album dubbed ‘R9’ since the release of 'Anti' in 2016, and has said she's still working on recording the new material, so doesn't have a release date in mind yet. When asked how much longer fans would have to wait, she said: "I wish I knew. I have blocked off a solid period of time for the studio next month.

" The 'Work' hitmaker says it "sucks" that she can't just put her new music out into the world, but insists she doesn't want to "rush" the material. She added: "It really does suck that it can't just come out, because I'm working on a really fun one right now. I'm really happy with a lot of the material we have so far, but I am not going to put it out until it's complete. It makes no sense to rush it, but I want it out. I've gotten to the point where I'm like, "Even if I don't have the time to shoot videos, I'm going to put an album out.'"

Rihanna also admits her business empire is partly to blame for the lengthy time between records now, as she's having to divide her energy between her music career, as well as her fashion and beauty lines. Speaking to Interview magazine, she said: "It's the reason why an album isn't being spat out like it used to. I used to be in the studio, only the studio, for three months straight, and an album would come out. Now, it's like a carousel. I do fashion one day, lingerie the next, beauty the next, then music the next. It's like having a bunch of kids and you need to take care of them all."
