Mario Talks Going Independent, New Music & More on ‘The Breakfast Club’


Mario is finally back with new music, in the form of his party single “Fireball,” which is his first release since going independent.  The R&B singer visited ‘The Breakfast Club’ on Friday morning for a new interview to officially introduce the single, and give fans an update on his current situation.

Mario addressed why he left his deal and shared his feelings on the current industry. He spoke about the unreleased collaborative project that he previously recorded with Rico Love, which is owned by RCA and will probably never be released. He revealed that he is writing or co-writing all of his new music, which he didn’t do much of in the past because, as he claims, his previous team didn’t believe in him as a writer.

He talked about how his relationship is with his mother now, who was previously an addict, the work he does for kids with his foundation, and his feelings about having kids of his own.

Chris Brown Talks Karrueche, Drake Beef, and Tyga Drama On Hot 97


The drama train just keeps on running in the celebrity world.

Most recently rapper and “Between the Sheets” tour mate Tyga has found himself on the receiving end of many of the negative blog talks. From his interesting relationship with the young Kylie Jenner to his business woes with tentative label Cash Money, the Cali born rapper has heard it all. Although he’s remained steadfast in his denial of the relationship with Kylie Jenner, no one has really bought into it. However, ifthere’s one person who’s had his back, it’s the guy who’s no stranger to drama – Chris Brown.

While the two are prepping for the release of their joint album, Fan of a Fan, they are also currently touring with Trey Songz. Stopping off at Hot 97 to discuss the recent Kanye interview on Power 105, the Kardashian drama, Drake – with whom both Breezy and Tyga have issues with – Chris being faithful, and more, the candid interview shows has both artists giving their take on the situations that have been swirling around the media outlets.

Breezy, who took the floor when talking about Drake, stated: “I can’t keep making these motherfuckers famous. I’m responsible for a lot of reviving of careers. When I keep talking about somebody, I’m just making them hot.” The singer also joked about an excerpt of Kanye’s Power 105 interview that allegedly was removed from the aired version saying, “Kayne, hold us down playa. Hold us down homie – you black, bruh!” He then went on to whisper, “Shut the f*ck up, shut the f*ck up,” before laughing it off.

Apparently letting the Henn do the talking, both Tyga and Breezy seemed to have a good time while at the interview.

The-Dream Talks New Label, Upcoming Double EP, Marriage, Today’s R&B and More on ‘The Breakfast Club’


The-Dream is back with the hot single “That’s My Sh*t,” and double EP ‘Crown | Jewel‘ due out this spring. Getting on the promo trail early, the multi Grammy Award winner stopped by The Breakfast Club on Power 105 in NYC for an interview on Wednesday.

Catching up with his old friends, Envy, Angela, and Charlamagne, the singer/songwriter/producer shared his thoughts and answered questions on topics varying from his current imprint label situation with Capitol Records, departure from Def Jam, new marriage, relationship with his ex Christina Milian, the Grammy Awards, scoring the movie Beyond The Lights, the state of R&B, and of course his upcoming projects.

“I think we like feeling ignorant, most of the time,” Dream said about current mainstream R&B music. “I think we like talking about ignorant things, we don’t have that love that they once had, like when I grew up … I have a problem when men that are supposed to be R&B artists talk about women in a certain type of way … You’re supposed to be kinda like a cornerstone of being the person uplifting love in that sense. I think we like it, because the same way your asking me the question it’s not going to stop anybody from going to the club tonight, putting their hands up for something that’s degrading.”

The FADER Presents: ‘At Home with: Miguel’


Miguel loves quality things. “It’s been fun putting it together. I kind of found a new passion,” he tells The FADER about curating the look and feel of his Los Angeles home. For the latest installment of their “At Home With” — a series presented by Sonos and The FADER where they peek into artists’ homes to see where they live, listen and make music — they visited Miguel’s chill L.A. pad and in-home studio, where he gives viewers an inside look at his recording process, recounted a wild house party, and even introduced his cat Munchie.

“I start everything here [in my studio] with ideas, and actually a lot of songs I’ve finished in here. It’s set up so I’m self-sufficient, and that’s kind of how I like it,” said Miguel. “For me it’s like, the solitude of being in your own home and comfortability and the amount of vulnerability you’re able to accomplish – you can’t compare that to the way it feels to be in a really sterile studio. It’s just a really comfortable place and that’s how I wanted the house to be in general.”

Check out Miguel’s home and tour his favorite rooms, other than his bedroom, that include unique features like custom Jimi Hendrix, Marilyn Monroe and Salvador Dali wallpaper below:
