Kanye West on an Odyssey to finish ‘The Saint Pablo’ Tour

It goes without saying that the last few months of 2016 were quite awful for Yeezy. The ‘Jesus Walks’ rapper had a year marred with personal mishaps which included his wife, Kim Kardashian West, being robbed in Paris in October. This was followed by an astounding cancellation of the eagerly awaited ‘Saint Pablo Tour’ in the United Kingdom. To cap it all off, Kanye West was hospitalized in Los Angeles and placed on a psychiatric hold in November. All I have to say is, ‘What a year!’

 

Kanye West has maintained an uncharacteristically low profile over the past few days. He asserted that he wants to focus on family and further mentioned that he prioritizes his children over any other thing. Yeezy looks forward to batten his parenting skills to a level as great as his lyrical prowess and become a good dad to his children.

 

Despite all the excruciating moments that 2016 had to proffer, Kanye West shook off the dust off his shirt and seems more vibrant, rejuvenated and exhilarated. Yeezy’s fans should be prospective of surprises from the Grammy Award Winner which would include more music and The Saint Pablo Tour. Kanye also intends to complete working on his fashion line.

 

Sources informed E! News that Kanye wants to finish the tour since he has a tremendous and inexplicable passion for it. Kanye shall hopefully make up for the time he missed during his hospitalization.

 

I remember being personally disappointed when the ‘Famous’ deacon of words cancelled the remaining dates of The Saint Pablo Tour; I would bet my life that virtually every Yeezy die-hard was equally disappointed. Well, Yeezy is back to give us all a treat! Buckle up, folks, this shall be epic!

 

The Benefits Of Purchasing A Used BMW

When you are in need of a new (to you) vehicle, you have the option of buying a brand new vehicle that has just come off the assembly line, or you can opt for a used vehicle that has already been driven to some extent. According to the Beverly Hills Auto Group, there are pros and cons to both of these options but overall, you’ll find great success with the purchase of a used BMW.

BMW has been making vehicles for many years; priding themselves on quality, the latest technology and vehicle advances. While the price point may be higher than other vehicle manufacturers, you get what you pay for and BMW provides quality and reliability.

The reason purchasing used is such a great idea is that it saves a lot of money overall. A brand new BMW is quite an expensive purchase to say the least. Luckily, because of the quality of BMW vehicles, buying used does not mean you are going to be dealing with a vehicle that is worn out or unreliable. You will save some money overall but you will still drive off the lot with a vehicle that is going to last you many more years to come.

 

The Tussle for Supremacy between Hip-hop and R&B

As an integral part of culture, music genres borrow heavily from one another. In this case, the history of hip-hop has largely been about absorbing and conquering the other genres. In fact, there is no genre that has dissolved others in a greater scale in the music industry the way hip-hop has done.

 

Taking Over the Music Scene

 

At first, hip-hop sampled the elder genres and this provides the intellectual justification for its place in the legacy of soul genre, where it eventually pushed soul music to the fringes. Later on, hip-hip music gave birth to its own crop of singers, characterized by smooth-edged tough talking who softened the samples, while they addressed simpatico themes. Eventually, these rappers did away with middlemen and started inputting melodies into their own verses.

 

A Fierce Backlash

 

Interestingly, former hip-hop artistes such as Drake have been instrumental in stopping the genre from overriding others. In his transition to R&B, Drake has invariably softens the blow that Hip-Hop had dealt the genre. In this way, R&B has refused to take hip-hop’s infiltration without a fight. In particular, the male R&B singers are devising new approaches for invigorating the genre.

 

For a long time, the success of Robert Kelly’s music was based on his infusion of hip-hop attitudes into R& Blues. His new album that was recently released titled The Buffet sold poorly. R Kelly complained that black audiences were no longer supporting his music. While that could be true, R Kelly’s strategy overlooks the current crucial trends. For one, the lovers of R&B are presently better off served by hip-hop instead of R&B and that he too is not the standard bearer that he previously was.

 

As generation of musician emerge so will the genres of music continue to fuse while other new ones emerge. Hip-hop may not have lost its luster but then its influence is undoubtedly at test.

 

 

The Weeknd’s Starboy Tops the Charts Again

The Weeknd is definitely feeling like a Starboy right now with his 2016 album topping the charts 3rd week in a row. Coming close behind are Bruno Mar’s LP 24K Magic and the newcomers, indie-pop trio, the XX. The irony of it all is that The Weeknd hasn’t sold as many physical albums.

The Weeknd’s Starboy album continues to lead in the top 200 charts with two of his songs becoming favorites among RnB lovers. His singles Starboy and Party Lover are the reason why this 2016 album is trending—and here is the good reason why.

Gone are the days when topping charts meant you sold as many albums as possible. With today’s online streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, leading the charts also means your album is frequently streamed by listeners—this is where The Weeknd leads the pack.

Starboy and Party Monster garnered over 57.2 million streams towards the end of January, followed close by The XX’s album I See You with 12.3 million streams. But you can already see the staggering difference. If we talk about physical album sales, the Weeknd comes nowhere near The XXs, or Bruno Mars 24K Magic.

So it’s official, streaming is the future of music sales and leading the charts. Technology will always come up with a way of eliminating the old in favor of the new. Just the other day, we were blasting music off our cd players before we picked up the iPod. Today, we don’t even have to buy CDs or copy music to our portable audio players, a monthly subscription to services like Spotify takes care of our music needs.

As the Weeknd’s Starboy takes the lead yet again, other top performers in the charts include Justin Timberlake’s Troll soundtrack ‘Can’t stop the feeling’ and soundtrack to the global musical La La Land.

The Capital Group Makes A Chairman Change With Death Of Its Former Chairman

In the business world, there are many ways for people to utilize their money for goals such as retirement. One of the most popular ways that people plan for retirement is through making investments. People have a variety of choices regarding making investment decisions for goals such as retirement. In many ways, the investment goals impact the type of investments that people make. For goals such as retirement, the investments that people consider will usually be different than investments for a shorter time frame.

The use of an investment company by people who wan to make investments has been done for many generations. One of the main reasons why many people choose to let an investment company handle their investments is because they realize that they are not experts in the investment industry.

However, the use of an investment company provides the people with expertise that they can use to help make the best possible investment decisions for their particular situation.

The selection of Middleburry alumni Timothy Armour followed the instructions of a succession plan that was put into motion after the death of Jim Rotherberg.

The Los Angeles based Capital Group has bee a leading investment company for many years. As the company moves forward under the leadership of its new chairman Timothy Armour, the Capital Group is positioned to continue its place as one of the best investment companies in the industry.

Drake takes the Throne

2016 was a really big year for artist Drake. It seemed like you couldn’t go more than a few days without hearing some news about Drake’s latest record. The record, which goes by the title of Oh My Klub, has produced some very exciting news for Drake. Over the past year, Drake has broken or tied roughly TEN RECORDS! In a single year, that’s an amazing amount in and of itself. Of course, no one can really question Drake’s relevance lately. After all, the man has been on the playing field since his acting days back during Degrassi. But even after 2016 was over, he couldn’t help but slap on one more record to the list, just to really stand out from the crowd, and this time he had a little help.

The news was just released that Drake and Future’s latest tour, Summer Sixteen grossed $84.3 Million dollars last year! While this is impressive in and of itself, what makes it more impressive was that it managed to take the top slot and become the highest grossing Hip-Hop tour of the year. It’s previous holders Jay-Z and Kanye West, managed to score about $75 Million with their tour, Watch the Throne, which is no small feat, even for two of the biggest names in the business. In light of this, it seems that Drake really took the top spot as 2016’s biggest artist in the genre.

Of course, this is just the latest record to join the others he took last year. Alongside the highest grossing tour, he tied with 50 Cent on his record of heading both the Billboard 100 AND 200 boards at once. He also beat out Justin Bieber as the most streamed artist EVER on Spotify, and Michael Jackson’s record for the most nominations at the AMA awards as well, by about 2 Million Nominations! Well done Drake, people are looking forward to seeing what 2017 brings you.

Sia, Miguel, and Queen Latifah Come Together for a Historically Inspired Soundtrack from Hamilton

Hamilton is a popular musical, featuring hip hop-fusion tracks, that depicts the life of Alexander Hamilton. The play has received a lot of love and praise from critics, celebrities, and Broadway lovers alike. Hamilton debuted off-Broadway in February 2015 and made it to Broadway in August 2015. Among the many awards Hamilton has won so far, the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album is one of them.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the mastermind behind Hamilton, is releasing a Hamilton mixtape on December 4, 2016 featuring a wide array of talented vocalists and rappers. Sia, Miguel, and Queen Latifah teamed up for a remix of the Hamilton track Satisfied, which is something you definitely want to look out for.

The first track on the Hamilton mixtape is a rendition of Satisfied, one of the best vocal productions in Hamilton. Satisfied, from Angelica’s perspective in the musical, relays the story of watching the man you love marry your sister. What makes the song more heartwrenching is there’s no animosity between the sisters and it was Angelica’s choice to let him go.

The remake of Satisfied by Sia, Miguel, and Queen Latifah has recently been revealed, so you can listen to it on Spotify before the mixtape’s official release. If you listen to the original Satisfied, you’ll see that Sia, Miguel, and Queen Latifah did it justice and effectively portrayed the emotion while adding their own style to the song. Hamilton’s mixtape will be worth listening to in full when it comes out on December 4.
