New Music: Jordin Sparks – They Don’t Give

Jordin Sparks Right Here Right Now

While we heard a sample of Jordin Sparks‘ new song “They Don’t Give” on her #ByeFelicia mixtape, today the talented singer has given us the full version of the love-filled track.

Coming courtesy of none other than Babyface and Salaam Remi, the ballad is reminiscent of any early ’90s track that had Babyface behind the pen. Singing out, “If we’re gonna make it through whatever, don’t let them hate / ‘Cause our love was meant to be forever, no matter what they say,” Jordin pours out her heart to the man who has it.

The “American Idol” champion’s third album Right Here Right Now is due out August 21. It is available for pre-order on iTunes now.

Mariah Carey Hits The Studio with French Montana and Justin Bieber


Is it time already? Superstar diva Mariah Carey says yes!

Hitting the studio with both French Montana and Justin Bieber, the self-proclaimed “elusive chanteuse” seems to be cooking up another set of tunes for her lovely lambs.

Taking to her Instagram to post a few shots of her in the studio, the veteran singer has teamed up with Bad Boy signee, French Montana and Pop sensation Justin Bieber, who according to TMZ crashed the session. Letting us know that the new sound will be “#comingsoon,” fans flooded her page with positive statements about what she could possibly be working on.

What’s interesting to us is the fact that Mariah and Bad Boy created some of the top remixes together in the ’90s. With French signed to Bad Boy, does that mean we can get a reunion between Diddy and MC on some new music too?

Only time will tell… Take a look at another snap below:

K. Michelle shed some more light on the cancelled outing in a lengthy note on Instagram. She blamed it on overworking herself and shot down rumors that there was bad blood between her and Azealia. She also claims the cancelation was not due to poor ticket sales.
