"Savage" Nominated at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards

Klaudia//September 30, 2020
The 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards are ready to honor the best in music, activism and culture!

Following the 2020 BET Awards, which paved the way as one of the first awards shows to take place amid the coronavirus pandemic and ongoing Black Lives Matter protests back in June, next month's Hip Hop Awards will pay tribute to some of the best songs and videos of the year, as well as the industry's biggest hustlers, the most visible hip hop platforms, and the most impactful protest tracks.

DaBaby and Roddy Ricch lead this year's nominations, with 12 and 11 nods, respectively, including several for their "Rockstar" collab. Drake tied for third-most, at eight nods apiece, with Megan Thee Stallion -- whose "Savage" remix with Beyoncé scored Queen Bey three nominations of her own.

The 2020 BET Hip Hip Awards will premiere Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 9 p.m. PT/ET on BET, and simulcast on BET Her, VH1 and MTV2.

Beyoncé Among Voters For Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums

Klaudia//September 25, 2020
Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time was originally published in 2003, with a slight update in 2012. Over the years, it’s been the most widely read — and argued over — feature in the history of the magazine (last year, the RS 500 got over 63 million views on the site). But no list is definitive — tastes change, new genres emerge, the history of music keeps being rewritten. So we decided to remake our greatest albums list from scratch. To do so, we received and tabulated Top 50 Albums lists from more than 300 artists, producers, critics, and music-industry figures (from radio programmers to label heads, like Atlantic Records CEO Craig Kallman). The electorate includes Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Billie Eilish; rising artists like H.E.R., Tierra Whack, and Lindsey Jordan of Snail Mail; as well as veteran musicians, such as Adam Clayton and the Edge of U2, Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan, Gene Simmons, and Stevie Nicks.

When we first did the RS 500 in 2003, people were talking about the “death of the album.” The album —and especially the album release — is more relevant than ever. (As in 2003, we allowed votes for compilations and greatest-hits albums, mainly because a well-made compilation can be just as coherent and significant as an LP, because compilations helped shaped music history, and because many hugely important artists recorded their best work before the album had arrived as a prominent format.)

Of course, it could still be argued that embarking on a project like this is increasingly difficult in an era of streaming and fragmented taste. But that was part of what made rebooting the RS 500 fascinating and fun; 86 of the albums on the list are from this century, and 154 are new additions that weren’t on the 2003 or 2012 versions. The classics are still the classics, but the canon keeps getting bigger and better.

You can see the entire list, which includes Beyoncé's "Lemonade" at No. 32, here.

Alicia Keys Talks About Releasing "Put It In A Love Song" Video

Klaudia//September 20, 2020
STEREOGUM: So I know you talked about this a bunch of times, but I have to ask it because I still want to know: What’s the update on your “Put It In A Love Song” video with Beyoncé? I know you said four years ago the video didn’t capture the energy that you wanted and you guys are both perfectionists. But is it still in the vault?

KEYS: Honestly now, I’m trying to figure out where it is. But I am going to find it. I feel like at this point in our lives, since we’ve been able to do our thing and we all get that was a cool moment between us, we might both be at the place where we can say, “Let’s just throw it out there for fun.” I’m going to try to remember and not forget. I’m gonna see if we can get that ASAP to the fans.

Beyoncé commandeers local Hamptons TV studio for top-secret shoot

Klaudia//September 16, 2020
Beyoncé shut down a tiny local TV studio in the Hamptons to record a top-secret video, Page Six is told — and she had the facility give the boot to other people who were booked to shoot there.

Sources say that the superstar suddenly decided to take over the LTV studio in Wainscott, LI — which usually turns out local-access programming — at the end of August to make the mystery project.

“It’s a big studio with two separate buildings,” said a source. “The whole thing was closed for Beyoncé so nobody could go in.” We’re told that the “Black Parade” singer took over the place for four days.

One of the people told to scram happened to be a Page Six favorite, socialite Jean Shafiroff, who shoots her show there every week. We’re told she usually tapes “Successful Philanthropy” mid-week, but got an e-mail telling her that her slot had been shifted to Friday.

Shafiroff said, “I love Beyoncé, so I was happy to give her my time at the studio. I canceled my guest and I’m interviewing her this week instead.” She added, “My only regret is that Beyoncé didn’t invite us to watch the taping, now that all the big concerts have been canceled.” Shafiroff was due to interview Loida Lewis, the first Asian woman to pass the New York bar.

Beyoncé's 'Lion King' Songs Roar On The R&B Charts

Klaudia//August 15, 2020
Beyoncé never waits too long in between projects, and while she may not have a new album out, fans are flocking to an updated version of a 2019 release thanks to the Queen’s latest visual masterpiece...and that has led to her dominating a number of Billboard charts yet again.

This week, many of the tracks featured on the singer-songwriter’s The Lion King: The Gift album either rise or return entirely (or even debut) on over half a dozen of Billboard’s rankings. They perform best on the R&B-only lists, where she has established herself as a force to be reckoned with.

Here is a look at how the tunes featured on the deluxe edition of The Lion King: The Gift perform this week on the R&B rankings.

R&B/Hip-Hop Songs

As Megan Thee Stallion and Bey’s “Savage,” which isn’t connected to The Lion King: The Gift at all, dips to No. 6, Beyoncé’s own “Black Parade” re-enters the R&B/Hip-Hop Songs race at No. 47. The track was originally released as a standalone cut earlier this year, but now it’s been included in the deluxe edition of the singer-songwriter’s latest full-length.

Beyoncé Dominates The World Songs Chart With Her 'Lion King' Smashes

Klaudia//August 14, 2020
About two weeks ago, Beyoncé changed the game once again by releasing her new film Black Is King, which premiered exclusively on Disney+ on July 31. The artistic venture uses her 2019 album The Lion King: The Gift as both a soundtrack and inspiration for a new story, and as countless fans of the singer-songwriter rushed to watch what she’d come up with this time around, the tracks from the full-length benefit immensely on at least one Billboard chart this frame.

As the album holds the No. 1 spot on the World Albums chart (as well as the Soundtracks and Top R&B Albums charts), Beyoncé also rules this week’s World Digital Song Sales ranking with the tracks from her latest project, which all return to the roster thanks to impressive sales during the past tracking frame, with a number of tunes hitting new high points on the list.

The Queen narrowly missed landing another No. 1 from the studio effort, as “Already,” which now seems to be the focus cut from the set, bounces back onto the World Digital Song Sales list at No. 2. It comes in behind only BTS’s “My Time,” which vaults from No. 15 to the highest rung.

Bey occupies three positions inside the top five, as “My Power” and “Find Your Way Back” land at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively. Looking at the entire top 10, the superstar lays claim to half of all the available rungs in the region, as “Brown Skin Girl” and “Mood 4 Eva” settle at Nos. 7 and 10, respectively.

Of the 10 The Lion King: The Gift tracks that are present on this week’s 25-spot World Digital Song Sales chart, only three don’t credit Beyoncé as an artist, though she was involved in their inclusion on the set and their current popularity.

'The Lion King: The Gift' Returns to Top 10 on Billboard 200

Klaudia//August 10, 2020
Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift album re-enters the Billboard 200 chart at No. 10, following the July 31 premiere of Black Is King on Disney+.

The set earned 27,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Aug. 6 (up 1,462%), according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

The album originally debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the Aug. 3, 2019-dated chart.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album. The new Aug. 15-dated chart (where The Lion King: The Gift re-enters at No. 10) will be posted in full on Billboard's website on Aug. 11.

Black Is King is based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, and was written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé. The Lion King: The Gift album also benefits from its reissue on July 31 with three additional tracks.

The Lion King: The Gift album was first released on July 19, 2019, as a companion project to last year’s film remake of The Lion King (in which Beyoncé voices the character Nala).

Beyoncé's film 'Black Is King' will air in Africa

Klaudia//July 20, 2020
Yesterday, Parkwood Entertainment and Disney+ released the new trailer and poster for Black Is King, a film by 24-time GRAMMY® Award-winner Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, which will premiere globally on July 31, 2020, streaming on Disney+.

The new film based on the music of The Lion King: The Gift, will premiere two weeks after the one-year anniversary of the theatrical release of Disney’s global phenomenon, The Lion King. The film reimagines the lessons from the 2019 blockbuster for today’s young kings and queens in search of their own crowns.

Simultaneously, a distribution deal was announced to make Black Is King available on much of the African Continent, including South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Ethiopia, Namibia, Cameroon, Liberia, Burundi, Senegal, Togo, Somalia, Benin, Congo, Kenya, Ivory Coast, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Gabon, Cape Verde and many more countries through MultiChoice Group’s M-Net and Canal+ Afrique.

Black Is King was in production for one year and features an impressive list of diverse voices on its creative team, including directors Emmanuel Adjei (the film Shahmaran), Blitz Bazawule (the film The Burial of Kojo), Pierre Debusschere (“Mine” and “Ghost” videos for Beyoncé), Jenn Nkiru (BLACK TO TECHNO film), Ibra Ake (creative director and producer on “This is America” video for Childish Gambino), Dikayl Rimmasch (CACHAO, UNO MAS film), Jake Nava (“Crazy in Love,” “Single Ladies,” “Partition” videos for Beyoncé) and co-director and long-time collaborator of Beyoncé, Kwasi Fordjour.

Beyoncé wins legal battle to trademark Blue Ivy’s name

Klaudia//July 17, 2020
The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB) had no time for the efforts of a Massachusetts wedding planner to block Beyoncé in her quest to secure intellectual property rights. In a little-noticed ruling one week ago, Beyoncé won her ongoing trademark battle over her daughter’s name.

For years, Beyoncé has attempted to trademark her daughter’s name, Blue Ivy Carter. She’s filed applications that cover everything from books to pacifiers to shampoo to video games and much more. The problem, though, is that wedding planner Veronica Morales called her business “Blue Ivy Events” – even before Beyoncé’s daughter was born.

Morales received a trademark registration from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the mark “Blue Ivy” in 2012 (the same year the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z was born) for her business. On that basis, Morales filed a “notice of opposition” with TTAB, arguing that Beyoncé should not be allowed to trademark “Blue Ivy Carter” because there is too much risk of confusion between the two.

Queen Bey said in documents that Morales’ “likelihood of confusion” argument was frivolous, because consumers are unlikely to confuse “a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world.” She called her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, a “cultural icon.”

BeyGOOD announces The Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund

Klaudia//July 11, 2020
BeyGOOD is a global initiative founded in 2013 to inspire people to be kind, to be charitable and to #BeyGood to themselves, to others, to the community, and to our world. BeyGOOD has partnered with programs to help people in the US, Europe, Africa, South America and the Caribbean.

Over the last couple of months, the pandemic and outpours for justice throughout the Black community and across the country has been felt in every imaginable area of our lives, including in how our local businesses continue to operate. The challenges of Black business owners navigating in the climate cannot be understated, as the effects of uprisings across the nation have led to many businesses being placed in dire straits due to damages and other small business needs.

The NAACP is delighted to administer a meaningful program in partnership with BeyGOOD’s Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund to assist our small business communities that have been directly impacted by the recent events across the country. The grants in the amount of $10,000 will be offered to Black-owned small businesses in select cities to help sustain businesses during this time. The NAACP is proud to partner with BeyGOOD to help strengthen small businesses and to ensure economic empowerment for Black businesses.
