Jason Derulo Reveals New ‘Talk Dirty’ Album Cover, Release Date


Oh, Jason. Jason, Jason, Jason.

If the heart-eyed emoji was available to post in writing, it would definitely be all over this post. Revealing the sexy new cover art to his upcoming album, Talk Dirty, Jason Derulo didn’t spare any of the “dirty”.

Due out on April 15, the album is driven by the Top 5 track of the same name. Joined by a pair of red nail wearing hands, the cover shows off the stars nicely toned torso with the hands feeling all over his exposed parts. Growing into a fine young man, the new album will expose a different side of the star that we may not be used to.

Calling on 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, Tyga, and Kid Ink to appear on the project, Mr. Derulo made sure to switch things up for us. Also using famed producers such as DJ Mustard, Timbaland, and RedOne, Talk Dirty might go down in the books as a top contender for his best album.

While we have a little time left until we can confirm that, take a look at a few of his celebrity friends Talkin’ Dirty in the special video below:

Solange Graces the Pages in Colorful ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Spread


Whether you love her music or just love her style, one has to admit that the youngest Knowles is doing her damn thing. Featured in the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Solange supplies eye-popping shots as well as some good info on what’s going on in her life.

Titling her the “Cool Girl On The Block,” Solange’s feature in the popularized fashion magazine takes time to highlight where she is as an all around artist to date. Dressed in Moschino, Ralph Lauren, and a pretty pricey Chanel dress, the 27-year-old fashionista has always been drawn to pops of color and more interesting pieces.

Discussing things such as her past experiences with music and fashion, short stint as a wife, her 9-year-old son Jules and much more, the Charloette Cowles penned piece sheds much light on what it’s like to be the sibling to standout superstar Beyoncé. When asked about how it feels to follow in her footsteps, the eccentric sibling stated:

“My parents constantly tried to talk me out of being an artist. They had gone through the whole journey with my sister and just wanted me to have a normal teenage life.”

Although Solange didn’t quite follow the exact same steps as Queen B, we’d have to say that she’s done quite well following her own.

August Alsina Testimony

August Alsina gave fans a treat over the weekend with an extended preview of his new track “Benediction” featuring Rick Ross, from his debut album Testimony due out April 15. The Eric Hudson-produced track is an autobiographical experience that touches on some of the hardships August has faced over his 21 years.

“I had to tell it all”, August explains. “If people can see that I came from the same fucked up circumstances that they’re currently in, then they’ll know it’s possible for them to make it too. I’m in this position for a reason, so if I hold back, I’m cheating the people, I’m cheating myself, and I’m cheating God. The majority of people out there either come from the struggle or are still in the struggle. If we don’t tell our story, no one will. #StrugLlife”

Testimony will be available for pre-orders on iTunes starting tomorrow March 18. Fans that pre-order the album, will instantly receive the full version of “Benediction” feat. Rick Ross. In addition to the brand new song, August has shared the album’s track listing, which boasts features from Pusha T, Fabolous, Yo Gotti, Rick Ross and Jeezy on the lead single “Make It Home.” The 17-track deluxe edition includes 4 bonus tracks, his breakout single “I Luv This Sh*t” along with the remix featuring Chris Brown and Trey Songz, the buzzing club song “Numb” featuring B.o.B and Yo Gotti and more.
