Watch Beyoncé Crash Chance the Rapper’s VMA Interview


Chance the Rapper was already having a great night at the VMAs on Sunday, but a special moment backstage even surprised the Chicago MC.

While being interviewed by MTV, Beyoncé came up behind him, causing him to fan out with excitement.

Chance was warning Drake that he was “coming for [his] muscles” when Bey popped up, smiling at the camera and resting her chin on his shoulder. When Chance realized who was interview bombing him, he was shocked.

“Oh my God, that was Beyoncé!,” he said.

Notorious for avoiding interviews, a smiling Queen Bey briefly said hello and praised MTV’s host Meredith Graves on her tattoos. But before long, she was gone, leaving Chance full of joy, yelling “This my life!”

Check out the memorable moment below.

Beyoncé Performs Outstanding ‘LEMONADE’ Medley at VMAs


Like everything she ever does, Beyoncé ran the MTV VMAs on Sunday night.

The rumors of her surprise performance came true with an outstanding 15-minute medley of songs off her award-winning album Lemonade, which already nabbed the Breakthrough Long-Form Video Award earlier in the night.

Tennis star Serena Williams introduced Bey, giving her the highest praise. “She dropped an earth-shaking visual album with an appearance by yours truly,” she said, referring to her cameo in “Sorry.” “Give it up to my friend, Beyoncé!”

Emerging in a full length white coat draped down her body, she opened with “Pray You Catch Me,” but quickly switched up the somber mood and her outfit for “Hold Up.” As she made her way through the audience, she grabbed a bat and went off on the camera, smacking it and cracking the lens. Blue and red lights flashed across her face as she finally transitioned to “Sorry,” where she manned the stage, grinding with a big smile across her face.

Bey wrapped it up by putting a red-splotched Dalmatian fur around herself for “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” where she spun the camera around and headed to the main stage where fireworks and smoke crashed all around her. She capped off the epic performance with the song that started it all, “Formation,” while a line-dance of black-clad dancers did synchronized moves on the floor, ending up in the shape of a female gender symbol.

More Beyoncé surprises are on the way — so it seems.

The Beyhive can get ready for another award show takeover, if a new report by the Los Angeles Times is accurate, which claims Queen Bey “has been in top-secret rehearsals” leading up to Sunday’s show. Earlier this summer, Beyoncé surprised fans with an outstanding opening performance of “Freedom” featuring Kendrick Lamar at the BET Awards.

Whether she performs or not, Beyoncé will likely be a hot topic all night. She’s a frontrunner this year with 11 nominations for her work on LEMONADE.

25 R&B Dancehall & Reggae Fusion Songs To Turn You On


Over the last few years, the influence of dancehall music in other genres has been extremely prevalent. Though genres have been pulling from other sounds not like their own for further back than we can remember, reggae, dancehall, soca, and its accompanying sounds from the Caribbean, have been some of the most replicated.

Originating in the late ’70s, dancehall music grew to new lengths in the early ’90s with sounds provided by Shabba Ranks, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Mad Cobra, and more. Uncovering massive US crossover success, the sound only provided a demand for more music like it. Thus, the late ’90s and early ’00s saw an even larger breakthrough in the US market than before, solidifying dancehall as a top contender in mainstream crossover music. While Caribbean-based artists were taking advantage of crossing over into our market, Pop, Rap, and R&B artists were also taking advantage of the addictive sound penetrating our ears. Artists like No Doubt,  Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Twista, Busta Rhymes, Sean Kingston, and more pulled the sounds of dancehall and fused it with their own, subsequently making them fall in the reggae fusion genre.

With the recent success of Drake’s “Controlla” and the Tory Lanez new single “LUV,” the love and admiration of the dancehall and reggae fusion sound continues to make its impact on current day music. While many will pose the question on whether or not dancehall is becoming mainstream again thanks to native artists like Popcaan, Konshens, Vybz Kartel, and Kranium, and non-natives such as the formerly mentioned, I give the firm answer that dancehall has never left.

With a sound that delivers longevity, appreciation, and respect, dancehall and reggae fusion songs will always be present due to their ability to stay relevant long after their debut into what we consider as “mainstream.”

Whether you’ve been a fan of the sound or are just joining in on the wave due to a few tracks that have recently surfaced, this list of “25 R&B Dancehall & Reggae Fusion Songs To Turn You On” will help you remember why dancehall and reggae fusion are two of the most influential sounds around.
