…in my dream last night. So basically, I’m never going to fail.
Speaking of Mr. West, congrats to him and his most recent album The Life of Pablo for debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and it is the first album to attain the top spot off of streaming numbers alone. You can hate him, but he knows what he’s doing and clearly the people love his music (which is why you should like him!). Another impressive TLOP fact, according to Tidal, is the album streamed 250 million times in just the first 10 days! That’s insane.
Moving on to another album that I’m sure will be on top of the charts. That is Drake’s Views From the 6. And we finally have a release date! APRIL 29. Drake announced the date at the very beginning of Saturday’s OVO Sound Radio episode. Why on the 29th? Well, if you watch the promo video below, which you should, this past year has been very exciting and rewarding for the Canadian rapper. And with him being 29, it’s fitting he drops the album on that day as well.
Views will be released exclusively on Apple Music.

MAJOR KEY ALERT. But seriously. DJ Khaled took to Instagram this morning to announce his 9th album titled Major Key. Be on the lookout for new singles, as I’m sure those will be dropping here and there. I’m waiting for that Future and Jay Z single. Fire. There’s no official release date yet, but it will be dropping this year. On top of that exciting news, Khaled also announced in his post that he has formed a new partnership with La Reid and Epic Records. With much respect for Reid, he was the first one to give We The Best Music an opportunityto distribute Khaled’s music on a larger scale. Maybe after this album drops, people will be like “ohhhh, that’s DJ Khaled, he’s talented!” instead of “oh, he’s that famous guy from Snapchat.” -_____-
Last but certainly not least, please read here to learn more about Fun Friday, courtesy of YesJulz Agency. What is Fun Friday? Julz and her squad recently visited an elementary school in Miami where they brought music, art, fun, (and pizza, of course!). Unfortunately, in the past few months, the school lost their art funding. There are no creative outlets for these kiddos to express themselves. So the good gals of YesJulz Agency decided to bring the creativity to them but they need your help in funding to continue to provide these Fun Fridays! Can’t donate? No problem! Share the picture below on your social channels and be sure to tag @yesjulzagency and @Movingforwardtg to encourage others to donate. Donate here today, and thank you in advance for your support!
Have a great Monday, yinz!
