and the beyhive trembles with anticipation

No, it’s not Bey’s first foray into fashion, but what’s coming up has the potential to be her best. As reported on NME, Sir Philip Green, the billionaire founder of Topshop, is working with Beyoncé on a new collection. 

Details are rather scant at this time, unfortunately, but as Sir Philip told England’s Evening Standard, the collection will be available for your greedy hands to grab and purchase some time next year. A statement from Green’s umbrella fashion company reads, “We are developing our distribution globally for the launch of this exciting new brand in spring 2016.” Oh, a whole new brand, you say? No capsule collection here, folks. This is the real deal. 

With distribution to 20 countries, it’ll be hard to escape Bey’s line once it launches, but we still have our questions. Will she be designing it herself? What’s the name? Will it be more Sasha Fierce, Mrs. Carter, or, as we hope, simple, off-duty Bey-at-play basics? Will we even be able to sport this stuff ourselves? Love her as we do, a lot of what Beyoncé rocks is only wearable if you're, well, an incomperable, glittering pop god standing in front of an audience of adoring thousands (that is to say, if you're Beyoncé.) Still, the mind reels with possibilities. Stay tuned for more.

It marks her third duet with Nas

Here are some words that I never expected to read or hear again: There is a new song with Amy Winehouse. But here we are in 2019, and Salaam Remi has granted me a wish. On Valentine's Day, the Grammy-nominated producer and frequent Winehouse collaborator (also responsible for hits like Miguel's "Come Through & Chill") released "Find My Love" which features rapper Nas and that powerful and haunting voice that I have come to love and cherish so dearly.

Representatives for Remi said that the Winehouse vocals were from an old jam session the two had. Remi was a producer on both of Winehouse's albums, Frank and Back to Black. "Find My Love" marks the third time Winehouse and Nas have done duets under the direction of Remi. They were previously heard together on "Like Smoke," a single from her 2011 posthumous album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures, and "Cherry Wine" from Nas' 2012 album Life Is Good. Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, before they could complete production on her third album. My heart is still broken about it as she is by far my favorite artist.

"Find My Love" is set to appear on Remi's Do It for the Culture 2, a collection of songs curated by him. Check it out, below.

"In the midst of chaos there's opportunity"

Following the travesty that was Fyre Festival, Ja Rule wants to take another stab at creating a music festival. Good luck getting that off the ground.

On Thursday, the rapper spoke to TMZ, where he revealed that he was planning to relaunch Icon, an app used to book entertainers, which is similar to Billy McFarland's Fyre app. He told the outlet that he wanted to create a festival similar to Fyre to support it.

"[Fyre Festival] is heartbreaking to me. It was something that I really, really wanted to be special and amazing, and it just didn't turn out that way, but in the midst of chaos there's opportunity, so I'm working on a lot of new things," he says. He then gets into the fact that he wants to form a music festival. "[Fyre] is the most iconic festival that never was... I have plans to create the iconic music festival, but you didn't hear it from me."

Ja Rule actually doesn't seem to think he is at all responsible for what came from Fyre Fest, claiming in a Twitter post that he was "hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, led astray." Even if that's his feeling, he should realize that anyone involved with Fyre shouldn't ever try their hand at music festivals again.
