It’s Usher’s lowest first week in more then a decade but my man still came out on top! Why so few units shifted? Blame it on the heavy hiphop/r&b singles her chose to lead this album, while “Raymond v Raymond”‘s promo was led by the billboard #1 single “OMG” and other more commercial selections from the album.. 

Billboard reports the following:

Usher secures his fourth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as “Looking 4 Myself” debuts atop the list with 128,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The pop/R&B star’s last full-length studio album, 2010’s “Raymond v Raymond,” also launched at No. 1, but with bigger sales. It started with 329,000. “Looking” also registers Usher’s smallest first-week sales for a regular studio album since 1997’s “My Way” bowed with 67,000.

The new album was ushered in by its lead single “Climax,” which is in its ninth straight week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Of Usher’s 12 No. 1s on the R&B/Hip-Hop tally, only one has spent more weeks at No. 1: “You Make Me Wanna . . .” (with 11).

On the pop side of things, “Looking 4 Myself’s” top 40-focused single “Scream” rises 11-10 on the Pop Songs airplay chart. It regains its No. 10 peak, having slipped 10-11 last week. On the all-format Billboard Hot 100 
chart, “Scream” slipped 13-14 last week (though it was still gaining in points). The new Hot 100 will be compiled today (June 20).

Love it! Rick’s music has a quality that was missing from the game before he came along, him and the entire Maybach Music family offer something totally different, something we call Luxe’ Hiphop, all about living the life and the finer things! U’s voice is perfect for the track, going to be seeing plenty of him over the next year or so!

The song is the first single from Rick’s new album, ” God Forgives, I Don’t” due July 31.

Love the song and the vid, U had to give the commercial market something to drive sales. His first 2 singles are hits but mostly at urban radio.. Y’all know n**** don’t buy music lol. The album is epic, so much so that we’re thinking about conducting album reviews again just to praise Usher for the vocals and return to form!

We’re so happy U finally shaved that damn beard, looks like himself again for the first time in YEARS!!

Rap-Up Magazine reports the following:

Melanie Fiona links up with her fellow Roc star J. Cole in the Colin Tilley-directed video for “This Time,” the No I.D.-produced single off her sophomore album The MF Life.

“I wanted some male energy on this record,” said the Canadian songstress. “I reached out to Cole and we had already done a song with Wale [‘Beautiful Bliss’] and we all just really had great chemistry on the record. I was a fan of J. Cole. We met at the very, very beginning of his career, so we’ve kind of come up together.”

Rihanna Speaks On Drake & Chris Brown Club Brawl!!!

Posted in BITCHASSNESS, CHRIS BROWN, drake, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM, YOUNG MONEY with tags , , , , on June 16, 2012 by JupiterDaTruth

I LOVE IT!! The below report, courtesy of SingersRoom states that the 2 men didn’t harm each other but I don’t buy.. Contrary to the story below, our sources say that the 2 had to be pulled away from each other but Drake’s entourage DID in fact instigate the madness. Lil Wayne was not present but has a working relationship with Chris and is said to be totally against any sort of rift between them given the fact that they both frequent the same circles.. Nicki is also said have “awkward” feelings about the issues between collaborator Chris Brown and her label mate and bestie, Drake.. Its an issue that is making all there mutual friends uncomfortable……..

Our Editor&Chief, RJDAMONARCH will be live on the air tomorrow morning with Sherryl Blu discussing the incident in greater detail. Don’t miss it!! 103.6 BANG FM Radio (5 AM US 11 AM UK)!!! #BANG

SingersRoom reports the following:

By now, everyone’s heard of the fight that went down between Drake and Chris Brown (or their crews) that popped off early Thursday at New York’s W.i.P club.  Speculation began brewing if the brawl was over Rihanna, a former flame to both music stars.

US Weekly reports the pop princess wasn’t at the club that night, but she was in town and heard about the drama-filled incident. A source tells US Weekly “Rihanna loves this!…Men fighting over her? Are you kidding? Of course. [She] loves the drama.” The anonymous source adds, “[She] got text messages from everybody telling her what happened right after it went down. She just laughed. She’s spoken to both of them and just thinks it’s crazy. She’s glad she wasn’t there though!”

Clubbers present at the time of the confrontation say the altercation was instigated by Chris and Drake’s entourages.  A witness at the club said, “Chris and Drake never got in each other’s faces. It was entourage versus entourage, never Drake versus Chris.” 

What is certain is that Chris was physically harmed in the drama, as he tweeted a picture of a gash in his chin after an alleged member of Drakes’ entourage threw a bottle at him. Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche and his bodyguard are also said to be injured in the brawl.

With all the injuries seeming like they are on Brown’s side, did Drakes’ camp instigate the whole thing? Drake had denied having taken any part in the melee. Drake’s camp issued a statement saying “He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began. He did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.”

But, despite the obvious rift between the two camps, Rihanna “wants to be friends with both of them,” the source explains.

Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been” Enters Billboard’s Top 10!!

THAT RIHANNA REIGN JUST WON’T LET UP!!!

That’s rite hoes, Rihanna’s notched her 22nd Billboard top 10 single, AGAIN asserting the distinction between these other b***8 and herself.. Rihanna is one of Billboard’s most prolific artist EVER!

RihannaDaily reports the following:

That Rihanna reign just won’t let up!

Rihanna registers her 22nd top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, as her dance-infused “Where Have You Been” jumps 11-9.

As she ups her total to 22, Rihanna moves closer to the record for most Hot 100 top 10s among women in the chart’s almost 54-year history. Madonna leads all female soloists with 38 top 10s (also the most among all acts, including solo males and groups), followed by Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson (27 each) and Whitney Houston (23).

Dating to her first week in the Hot 100′s top tier just almost seven years ago (July 16, 2005) with her debut single “Pon De Replay,” Rihanna’s 22 top 10s in that span are the most among all acts. Lil Wayne is second in that stretch with 16. Among women in that time frame, Rihanna boasts twice as many top 10s as her next closest female competitor, Lady Gaga (11).
