Great news for fans of ‘A Quiet Place’! Paramount Pictures just revealed a first look at the upcoming film which lands in theaters March 20, 2020.

Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

So… pretty much your standard post-apocalyptic family survival story! Are y’all excited for this?

A QUIET PLACE PART II IS IN THEATRES, DOLBY CINEMA AND IMAX ON MARCH 20, 2020

We were huge fans of the first film, which kept us on the edge of our seats. Djimon Hounsou and Cillian Murphy are in the sequel as well so we’re looking forward to seeing what roles they play. While John Krasinski isn’t in this one, he did write and direct. We love that he and wife Emily Blunt are working together again.

Oh and less we forget… Here’s a first look photos from the film as well:

YK Osiris & DaBaby Praise The “Freaky Dancer” In New Music Video

When YK Osiris dropped his debut studio album, The Golden Child, in October, he simultaneously declared himself to be this generation’s “King Of R&B”. In order to make this claim, he had to denounce other artists from the new school vying for the title, such as Jacquees, which he did not hesitate to do. Regardless of whether YK Osiris’ project lived up to this standard or whether it’s even an interesting debate to be having, you have to respect an artist coming out the gate swinging with that level of confidence. 

These days, everyone knows that R&B doesn’t solely entail pure R&B. Most of the music classified under this genre today is presenting a sound that has undergone countless reinventions. A lot of it is tinged with elements of trap and a prime example of that is YK Osiris’ “Freaky Dancer”. It’s less concerned with capturing romance than starting a party. And who better to enlist as a fellow party-starter than DaBaby? DaBaby gives one of his many exciting guest verses of the year that always manage to amplify a track. 

“Freaky Dancer” first dropped as The Golden Child‘s lead single in June, but a booty-filled music video always comes at a good time. 

soWAYV’s Girl Goes “Both Wayz” In Exclusive New Video

soWAYV was once so out of tune with his girlfriend that he didn’t even know she was into women too. When he found that out, he was low-key upset until he realized it could work to his advantage. That’s when he decided to write “Both Wayz,” a banger dedicated to the bisexual men and women around the world and also an ode to the hustle he enjoyed before music.

Premiering “Both Wayz” exclusively with HotNewHipHop, the rising rapper enjoys time with his girl and her girl in the pool, detailing their unique bond and diving deep into his past life. The artist told us: “This is off my full project, it came about when I was writing and in the process I was dealing with my past relationships and my past career. This was a song to me about letting go of something and being open to new things, freedom, accepting a new path. ‘Both Wayz’ represents the old career I use to have and also the new one and how I literally get it both wayz and also about me lowkey finding that my girl liked girls all along, I use to be fake mad about it till I realized I kind of liked it.”

Watch the video above and tell us how you feel about it.

Rick Ross & Gunplay Link Up For Lavish “Nobody’s Favorite” Visuals

Rick Ross, boss though he may be, opted for a more subtle approach on Port Of Miami 2. A solid, if altogether unchallenging effort from start to finish, the project found Renzel at his most comfortable. Luckily, when one’s image is that of a charismatic higher-up, one can get away with coasting from time to time. On “Nobody’s Favorite,” however, Ross made sure to step into the boardroom with a vengeance, taking to a stark minimalist banger with formidable swagger. The brand new visuals, lined with menace and violent imagery, successfully enhance the song’s sense of danger.

Neon-drenched lighting and opulent imagery are plentiful, with Renzel and Gunplay’s table literally lined with a shark. Despite the dark tone, the ladies remain loyal to the cause, finding time to twerk accordingly. Despite the lack of any clear narrative, there’s enough imagery to tell a loose and fragmented story, making “Nobody’s Favorite” another solid video in Ross’ growing repertoire. Check it out now, and make sure to revisit Port Of Miami 2 when you have a second. 

Headline Heat: Kenya Moore Talks THAT Messy #WWHL Shade Trade With Quad & ‘Boring’ Marlo Hampton

Kenya Moore Talks THAT Messy #WWHL Shade Trade With Quad & ‘Boring’ Marlo Hampton

Kenya Moore is breaking down what really went down on that episode of “Watch What Happens Live” when she and Miss Quad got into it. As previously reported a shade trade happened between the RHOA star and the “Married to Medicine” star that left viewers befuddled.

It was later revealed that Kenya didn’t appreciate comments Quad made alongside Sheree Whitfield and Quad received Kenya’s comments and apologized for the alleged shade.

Yesterday Kenya further broke down the issue to BOSSIP and confirmed that it was the Sheree assisted moment that upset her.

“She’s agreeing with all this shade, she’s saying not nice things about me, in particular, she agreed with a situation about my mom not wanting me growing up. That’s not something you agree with if you like someone,” said Kenya.

Kenya also reaffirmed to BOSSIP that NeNe is a bully and dished on her split from Marc Daly. She also reaffirmed that she’s “bored” with Marlo Hampton and talked pettily pulling up to Marlo’s wig launch with a marching band and her line of beauty products.

“Yes I was petty, it was very shady and petty but do NOT come for me unless I send for you,” said Kenya.

She also dished on her Moore Haircare line that’s in 2200 Sally Beauty stores.

Watch Kenya speak on BOSSIP’s hottest headlines above.

Tyga Gets Cartoonish For The Booty In “Ayy Macarena”

The Tyga comeback has officially reached its apex. Now, T-Raww sits comfortably within the upper echelons, one of hip-hop’s eligible and eager bachelors; with his penchant for free-spirited loving and seemingly magnetic fondness for the booty, who is he if not rap’s Quagmire? Today, the beloved West Coast rapper has come through with some new visuals, this time for his “Ayy Macarena” single. As this is Tyga we’re talking about, you already know that scantily clad women remain on deck, though it’s hardly gratuitous this time around.

For one, the cartoonish clip is riddled with humor, with hilarious callbacks to Jim Carrey’s The Mask. Not to mention, Tyga’s premiere of the stache, a look that oddly works within the context of “Macarena’s” world. In ways, this video is the complete package: eye candy, action, a fun dance, and the slightest hint of absurdist comedy to tie it all together. Check it out now, and be sure to show Tyga some love in the comment sections.

Russell Simmons And 50 Cent Call Out Oprah For Exposing Black Men Accused Of Sexual Assault

Big… Bali… Balls… On Friday Russell Simmons took to Instagram to directly address Oprah Winfrey over a documentary she’s currently working on that will shine a light on sexual assault and harassment in the music business. Being that he’s one of the men who has been accused of more misdeeds that anyone else that we know of in that community, we’re not at all shocked that Simmons is concerned.

In a lengthy caption Simmons writes:

Dearest OPRAH,you have been a shining light to my family and my community. Contributing so much to my life that I couldn’t list a fraction of it in this blog.Ihave given you the gift of meditation and the groundbreaking book”THE POWER OF NOW “we bonded to say the least. This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentry [sic]. I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today “womanizer”) sleeping with and putting myself in more compromising situations than almost any man I know. Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection of the same experiences. Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand chosen women. I have refused to get in the mud with any accusers, but let’s acknowledge what i have shared. I have taken and passed nine 3-hour lie detector tests (taken for my daughters), that these stories have been passed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS. Now that you have reviewed the facts and you SHOULD have learned what I know; that these stories are UNUSABLE and that “hurt people hurt people”. Today I received a call from an old girlfriend from the early 1980s which means that they are using my words/evidence against me and their COMMITMENT/ (all of the claims are 25 to 40 years old) It is impossible to prove what happened 40 years ago, but in my case proof exists of what didn’t happen, mostly signed letters from their own parents, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and in the case of 2 of your 3 accusers,their own words in their books. Shocking how many people have misused this important powerful revolution for relevance and money. Maybe you should name your documentary “FLAVOR OF LOVE”!? In closing, I am guilty of exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, but i have never been violent or forced myself on anyone. Still I am here to help support a necessary shift in power and consciousness. Let us get to work on uplifting humanity and put this moment and old narrative behind us.

Do you think he makes a good case for himself or would he have been better off trying to address Oprah privately? Also, for most women does it put you anymore at ease that Simmons admits to being a womanizer but claims his innocence has been proven via lie detector test and other people’s word? How about his concept that he wants to help “support a necessary shift” but within the same paragraph mentions putting an “old narrative” behind us?

It’s kind of hard to see how you can tell people to believe women in one breath and in the next you accuse them of wanting to make money and gain relevance. WHO would want to be relevant by being known as a rape victim? That argument makes no sense at all.

We also thought it was interesting that Simmons wants credit from Oprah for giving her Eckhart Tolle’s book. We found this clip of him insisting he put her onto Tolle:

SMH. Gotta love people who do nice things, then insist on recognition. Sheesh.

And Russell isn’t the only one pointing fingers at Oprah. 50 Cent also apparently takes issue with her “going after black men”.

🤦‍♂️I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men. No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this shit is sad. Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts.These documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.

How about the color of the men doesn’t matter?

Kim Kardashian Reveals West Family Christmas Card

After previous years’ drama trying to schedule a family photoshoot for the annual Kardashian/Jenner holiday card, it’s no wonder Kim and Kanye opted to do one with just them and their four adorable kids, North, 6, Saint, 4, Chicago, who turns two-years-old in January 2018 and 7-month-old son Psalm, who they welcomed in May.

The West Family Christmas Card 2019

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

The family keeps it casually cute in matching gray getups, although Kanye rocks a cream colored thermal with his sweats. It’s a poignant reminder that with all their wealth, one of Kim and Kanye’s greatest challenges has come with safe conception and delivery of their kids. Kim took to Instagram on Thursday to detail the difficulties she had with her delivery of North and revealed that doctors wouldn’t even allow her to do IVF after she gave birth to Saint because it would likely be a case for malpractice.

“When I was pregnant with my daughter North, I had a condition called preeclampsia or toxemia, which is basically when the mom’s organs start to shut down,” Kim explains in the clip, which also doubles as a post about causes that she and her SKIMs brand contribute to.
“The only way to get rid of that is to deliver the baby. At 34 and a half weeks, I had to go into emergency labor — they induced me. North was 4 pounds. She was almost six weeks early.”

Kim says her placenta never came out during delivery and grew inside her uterus after she gave birth.

“That is what women die from in childbirth,” Kim says.

Sounds like she and North are both lucky to be alive.

Even after that difficult experience Kim still wanted to carry more kids, she says in the video:

“After my daughter was born, I still continued to do the process of freezing my eggs. I was able to get pregnant through that with my son Saint, and then I had two embryos left. I had the same condition, same awful delivery that I had with my first daughter,” Kim explains.

“After that, I had to have five different operations within a year and a half to fix the damage that all of that did on the inside.”

Insane. Can you imagine having FIVE surgeries? One alone seems pretty scary. Even after Saint’s difficult birth Kim still wanted to try for more kids, but her doctors told her it would be a malpractice risk so she turned to surrogacy.

“I’m so thankful for my beautiful kids, no matter how they came to me — they came to me. I’m so thankful for surrogates. I’m really thankful for my family. I grew up with so many siblings. I just loved being in a big environment. I would have gone through the same pain and back for the result of having my babies. It was all worth it,” Kim says at the close of her video.

He’s such a cutie. Currently the baby of the family — Psalm is the smallest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Who do you think will be the next Kardashian/Jenner to have a baby? Kendall is currently the only one of the siblings who hasn’t had a baby yet. Do you think she’ll join her siblings soon?

Joyner Lucas Drops Off Cinematic Saga “Revenge Intro/ADHD”

It’s honestly unclear as to what’s actually happening with Joyner Lucas’ ADHD album, if it even exists at all. Over the past year or so, we’ve seen the lyricist delivering a variety of singles, spawning theories of a “deconstructed” release of sorts. While we’re left speculating, Joyner continues to expand on his narrative, using the visual medium to bring additional life to his latest single. In a clip directed by both himself and Ben Proulx via Projext 2 Studios, Joyner’s “Revenge Intro/ADHD” video is striking to behold.

Featuring impressive use of color and editing transitions, Joyner’s emotional single swaps from location to location, from the library to the basketball court to the hospital. The one constant, however, is the frequent medication he’s faced with at every turn; we’ve already seen Joyner decry the hip-hop’s emphasis on drug abuse, and in light of his recent Juice WRLD centric tweet, it’s clear he only intends on doubling down. Check out the clip now, and sound off below – are you still here for Joyner’s new album? 

Charlie Heat Brought The Horns Out For Denzel Curry On “Aloha”

Today’s episode of Behind The Beat centers around producer Charlie Heat, specifically his work with Florida’s own Denzel Curry. With their collaboration “Aloha” still going off, we had a chance to connect with Heat at his home studio in LA. With a Calgary Flames banner held high, presumably to represent the fire he seeks to make, Heat proceeds to walk us through his creative process. 

Revealing his musical background, which found him playing both piano and drums in college, Heat explains that it was the love of discovering new music that first brought him into the game. Before long, his name was picking up steam thanks to songs like Lil Uzi Vert’s “Uzi,” which helped spark the distorted 808 wave. A wave that has since led him to drop “Aloha” with one of the best young lyricists in the game. “Denzel my boy in real life, my friend,” explains Heat. “In the industry there ain’t really a lot of friends…I hold him to a standard of being cool. That’ how we rap. Everytime we link up we have something special.”

“I’ve seen some things with him freestyling in studio, he out of control,” praises Heat. “He fire. We did ‘Sumo,’ then next time we started ‘Aloha,’ then next time we did ‘Wish.’ We got a lot of stuff that’s unfinished.” He eventually queues up the session, which looks to have been crafted in Logic Pro. “First thing I did was I got this horn player, my boy Kev, I sent it over to him,” reveals Heat. “He replayed it, juiced it up, and first sent over the solo.” As soon as he heard that, Heat knew it was on. “He put the chords in behind it. The next part I added, I thought this thing gotta bang off rip…I pitched it down for the intro.” 

“I did the 808 kick & clap on the MPC,” continues Heat. “Simple stuff. A little warmer, got the job done. Hats I might have done on FL.” And like that, it all came together to make a genuine banger. If you haven’t heard the finished song yet, check it out here. Be sure to show some love to Charlie Heat in the comments, and keep an eye out for more episodes of Behind The Beat.
