Brap, brap: Rihanna has the #1 song on iTunes!

Mixed reviews aside, Rihanna's pulling power can't be denied. Chick has the number one single on the main US iTunes chart with 'Bitch Better Have My Money.' Not a fan of the song myself to be honest. However, people are clearly here for urban ratchet Rihanna. It is clearly the more preferrable option than the folksy direction she was attempting with ‘FourFiveSeconds’ (featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney).

Question is, can Rihanna maintain that pull on the Billboard Hot 100 and break some records in the process? Riri will perform ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ for the first time at this Sunday's iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Tamia shoots new video ‘Sandwich And A Soda’...

Tamia and director Mark Liddell shot the music video for her brilliant new single ‘Sandwich And A Soda’ (via Def Jam) in Los Angeles this week.

This woman's beauty is timeless.

Christina Milian covers 'Latina'...

Check out Christina Milian looking totally gawjus on the cover shoot of Latina magazine. During the shoot with Steven Gomillion, the Turn Up singer gushes about her "very special" relationship with rapper Lil Wayne.

Man Crush and Lil Wayne in the same sentence? That's funny to me. Weezy or Weasel isn't occupying any woman's Man Crush lists as far as Instagram feeds go. His bank balance perhaps, and Chrissy damn well knows it. The question is, what's it doing for her stagnant music career? The May 2015 issue of Latina will be available on newsstands on April 7th! The assisting photoshoot is below.

Nicole Scherzinger is still recording new music...

Following the underwhelming UK performance of her latest album 'Big Fat Lie,' Nicole Scherzinger is still recording songs for the Stateside release.

This woman's perseverance is commendable. However, if music listeners are not buying what she's putting out, her efforts will continue to go in vain sadly. She just wasn't destined to follow in Beyoncé and JT's footsteps. Let's face it, Nicole finding breakthrough success in the States just isn't going to happen. Ever.

Christina Milian premieres 'We Ain’t Worried' video...

Christina Milian premieres her girly house party visuals for her new single 'We Ain’t Worried.'

Apparently, the budgeted clip was just an excessive plug for her 'We Are Pop Culture' clothing line. I don't care for the song either. It's trash. I'm about to enjoy a girls night out myself this Saturday, so this video could not have come at a more convenient time.

Britney Spears announces release date for new single 'Pretty Girls'...

Britney Spears' new single 'Pretty Girls' (featuring Iggy Azalea) gets released to digital retailers on May 5th! This news was confirmed by Britney herself during her cover interview with People. The song was reportedly written by British girl band Little Mix.

They recorded it during the recording sessions for their upcoming album and it eventually got passed down to Britney. She also confirms that a music video will be shot very soon. Little Mix's music is R&B pop mostly (their last album was dominantly R&B) so could this mean Britney may be transitioning back to a more urban sound? With the exception of 'Femme Fatale' and 'Britney Jean,' all of her albums have been very solid. However, another 'Blackout' would be great.

Listen to Rihanna's new single 'Bitch Better Have My Money'...

Rihanna has premiered an explicit CDQ version of her brand new single 'Bitch Better Have My Money,' produced by Deputy. The song is lifted off her upcoming new album, R8.

Riri wants you to get wasted at the club with this grimy trap anthem. It's not really representative of the "timeless" music she claims she wants to make, but everyone has to have their fun songs right? With this, Rihanna clearly has fun utilising some of her rap skills. Brap, brap. Check out the song in CDQ below and purchase it on iTunes.

Snapshots: Mariah Carey grabs a bite to eat in LA...

Mariah Carey grabbed dinner at Craig's restaurant with Courtney Love and director Brett Ratner in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Ratner has directed many of her music videos including the iconic 'Heartbreaker' video. The singer, who has been in Los Angeles working hard on her upcoming Vegas residency, was looking every inch her oldschool self with those luscious 'Vision of Love' curls. Too bad she still doesn't have the sense to sack her stylist!

Rihanna now owns the masters to her music...

According to her newly updated website, Rihanna, who is recording her first album under the Roc Nation label now has full ownership of her masters. Boss move from this business woman!

Rihanna is set to reap the financial rewards when it comes to her projects. Also featured on her rebranded website is a tour 2015 section fuelling further speculation that she is set to embark on a joint trek with Kanye West. Rihanna's come-up game has been amazing. She's come so far since almost getting dropped from her label and coming close to bankruptcy. Werk!

Listen to Usher and Chris Brown's 'All Falls Down'...

'New Flame' collaborators Usher and Chris Brown reunite on an unlucky in love ballad titled 'All Falls Down.'

Over sprinkling piano keys and sparse drums, the pair portray their vulnerable side after getting their hearts broken by a woman. The song is believed to have leaked from Usher's recording sessions for his upcoming new album 'UR.' We all know Usher is a vocalist. However, Chris displayed some real dimension to his vocals here. Nice song.

Snapshots: Kelly Rowland and baby Titan cover 'Essence' (full photoshoot)...

Such an adorable moment! Kelly Rowland and her precious family are on the cover of Essence magazine.

Aside from the blurry pap shots we've seen of him so far, this is actually the first time Kelly gives the world an official glimpse of her cute newborn son Titan. The April issue of Essence is on newsstands now. *UPDATED*

Jennifer Lopez performs ‘Feel The Light’ on ‘American Idol’...

Princess gowns don't get any bigger than this, but at least Jennifer Lopez looked the part, while animated scenes from the film 'Home' were projected against it.

Watch the performance and check out a preview of the upcoming 'Feel the Light' music video, inside.
