The rapper has yet to comment.  (Photo: Shareif Ziyadat/FilmMagic)

Uncle and Nephew... Kinda - Nobody runs hip hop like Jay Z and it looks like the mogul is slowly but surely passing the torch to Drake, whose new album Nothing Was the Same drops later this month. Not only are these two like fam, Jay will be heard on Drizzy's new song "Pound Cake." We're not sure what it's about, but we have quiet a few guesses and can't wait to hear the future masterpiece.

"Only 1" - The late '90s and early 2000s of R&B paved the way and really inspired Ariana's vocal style. This synthesized percussion-based track takes us back from the intro to the hook. As an added bonus track courtesy of the deluxe edition, it's surely a treat to her older fans. (Photo: Rob Kim/Getty Images)

The New Mariah? - Yesterday, Ariana Grande released her debut album, Yours Truly, and is on track to top the charts.

Only time will tell if this is true, but she's got a strong debut and talent to speak for itself. (Photo: Rob Kim/Getty Images)

Its embarrassing &hurtful but ive come 2 far 2 give up now"The Braxton family’s newest star has been coughing up a few off notes the past couple weeks, which have resulted in shortened shows and lots of criticism. While she's going through a rough patch right now, Tamar says she won't let hate nor pitch problems stop her shine. #letemknowT (Photo: Rommel Demano/Getty Images)
