Eminem releases the Beyoncé-assisted track “Walk on Water” from his upcoming ninth album rumored to be titled “Revival”. Is the song HOT or not? Chime in the comments below!
Eminem and Beyoncé team up for “Walk on Water”, a song ripped from Em’s upcoming ninth album rumored to be titled “Revival.” Just as a heads up, the song is more of a ballad than Eminem’s Trump-bashing fiery freestyle he released at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. Sound off in the comments to let me know if the track is hot or not.
Lil Uzi and Nav (from the XO camp) team up on “Wanted You.” Is the track HOT or NOT? Sound off in the comments!
I’m gonna be honest…I may not be the biggest fan of Lil Uzi Vert; however, I must admit that his album slaps in the whip now and then. Luv is Rage 2 charted at number one on the Billboard 200 with his hit song “XO Tour Llif3.” In addition to “XO Tour Llif3”, Uzi released his follow-up single “The Way Life Goes” which chronicles the same vein as “Tour Llif3”—a failed relationship.
Furthermore, with an assisted verse from Nicki Minaj, she helped Uzi take the song to new heights. Minaj took to Instagram to preview a snippet of her “The Way Life Goes” verse and bam—it’s now an official remix.
The charismatic Philly rapper isn’t slowing down. Uzi and XO artist Nav released “Wanted You” on Thursday night, a heavily auto-tuned track dedicated to a bitter relationship that shouldn’t have happened. Listen to both tracks below and sound off in the comments if they’re hot or not.
Sidebar: The sample from Uzi’s “The Way Life Goes” is from a 2015 song called “Landslide” by Oh Wonder, an R&B duo from the U.K. I’ve been bumpin’ their eponymous album and it’s pretty solid. Feel free to check it out!

Kelly Rowland and Syd to Collab for Rowland’s Next Album. Read more info on TheOriginalChatman. As always like, share, comment, and provide feedback!
The beautiful and extremely talented Kelly Rowland hasn’t dropped a new album since 2013’s, Talk A Good Game. However, she still has her foot deep within her music.
Recently on a Beats 1 radio show, Rowland discussed her upcoming music, and even mentioned a collaboration with someone in the industry whose been gaining a lot of traction lately. The collaborator will be none other than Syd, the lead singer of The Internet (the Odd Future affiliated soul-R&B band). Apparently Kelly is a huge fan of Syd’s voice and her music.
According to Rowland, she thinks everything about her voice “is just so effortless” which allows her to be sucked in while Syd sings. She used the hit Internet song “Girl” as a reference to express her fandom for the leading lady.
Besides her love of all things Syd, Kelly discussed the delay in new music while also dabbling on finding a neutral ground between youth and older age. “I’m in this really glorious time where I’m receiving a lot of information and I feel like I have to give that back out too.”
I’m sure once Kelly and Syd release their collab together, our ears will be blessed with amazing music. Also, minor spoiler alert! On last night’s episode of HBO’s Insecure, Syd made a cameo on the show! I was lowkey excited, yall!

Kendrick Lamar and Nas Discuss the Swizz Beatz-Timbaland Beat Battle. Between the two producer giants, who do y’all think is #WithTheSmoke?
At its forefront, not only is hip-hop a young man’s game, it’s also a competitive sport in which rap adversaries go head to head with bars—the end result guiding us (the fans) to determine which is the best emcee.
Although emcees fighting for “the throne” in rap is nothing new, a beat battle between producers is something worth the surrounding hype. I’m not necessarily certain if beat battles have been around; however, a match-up between the legendary Swizz Beatz and Timbaland will definitely go down in the rap history books.
Just a couple weeks ago (July 14), Swizz challenged Timbo the King to a beat battle. The challenge was offered during a Hot 97 promo run for the upcoming Mayweather-McGregor fight.
Both super producers have campaigned the hottest names in rap— such as Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul,and Nas— about the outcome of the epic battle. Swizz caught up with Nas in a studio somewhere in which the Queensbridge legend calls Swizz and Timbo, “two top tier n-ggas going at it.” Nas didn’t give a clear answer on whose side he’s reppin’ but he encouraged the beat battle as “what the game needs.”
“Y’all both my brothers, so I just want to watch it go down,” he continues.
On the other side of the scale, Timbaland posted a video of Swizz chopping it up with Kendrick and Soulo. While Kendrick almost speaks a victory for Swizz into existence, he bounces back quickly by changing the subject. Watch what Kendrick says to Swizz regarding the battle and determine for yourself who Kendrick’s rollin’ with.
