nickiminnajNicki Minaj is reportedly re-shooting her latest music video following the terrorist attack in London last week.

The rap star filmed scenes for the No Frauds video on Westminster Bridge just a day before three people were killed on the iconic landmark last Wednesday (22.03.17) when a terrorist drove a car into pedestrians but the footage is now unlikely to make the final edit, with Nicki feeling it would be inappropriate.

A source said: When everybody involved in the project heard the news they were devastated and thought it would be in bad taste to feature it.

The other London scenes will remain, but its highly doubtful the bridge footage will make the cut.

Nicki who wore a silver-beaded corset and headdress while filming on Westminster Bridge previously paid tribute to the victims of the terrorism incident, which ultimately led to the deaths of five people, on Twitter.

drakeoneDrake, the prolific hip-hop star who was last years top-selling artist, has returned with a song collection in which he ventures further into dancehall rhythms and taps fellow big names.

The Toronto rapper, who has long challenged industry definitions, on Saturday dropped More Life and called it not an album or a mixtape but his first playlist.

More Life is anchored by Fake Love, Drakes infectious hit about the phoniness of those around him. He released the song late last year but it did not appear on his blockbuster album Views.

The track is built off a stripped-down beat reminiscent of dancehall, the energetic popular music of Jamaica. He goes more heavily into dancehall on Madiba Riddim, which alludes to anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela and has echoes of Drakes mega-hit with Rihanna Too Good.

Drake, who says he resents being labeled simply as a rapper, goes into full-fledged pop on tracks such as Teenage Fever, a love song that is partially a cover of Jennifer Lopezs If You Had My Love.
