SZA Shares Lush New Single 'Saturn'

SZA recently released a new single, "Saturn," via Top Dawg Entertainment and RCA Records, nearly three weeks after debuting the song in a Mastercard commercial during the Grammys.

SZA wrote "Saturn" with the producers of the track Carter Lang, Rob Bisel, Solomonophonic and Monsune.

The song, which is likely to feature on SZA's forthcoming SOS deluxe album titled LANA, finds the singer disappointed with the world around her and wondering if life would be better if she could start over on Saturn.

"If there's another universe, please make some noise/Give me a sign/ This can't be life/If there's a point to losing love," SZA sings in the opening verse.

"Life's better on Saturn/Got to break this pattern of floatin' away," she sings in the chorus before declaring: "Find something worth saving/It's all for the taking, I always say."

SOS debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in December 2022 and spent 10 nonconsecutive weeks atop the chart, the most for an R&B/hip-hop album by a woman since Mariah Carey's self-titled debut spent 11 weeks at the top in 1991.

Machine Gun Kelly Reveals 'Breakdown' In New Song 'Dont Let Me Go'

Machine Gun Kelly's new song "Don't Let Me Go," which arrived recently along with a video, sees the singer revealing a "breakdown" was the reason behind him getting a massive blackout tattoo.

"Just like I wish they would understand me one time/ I had a breakdown and tatted my entire body except one line," MGK raps in the piano-laden track.

MGK also mentions that mental health problems, substance abuse, and a strained relationship with his late father as some of the issues that led to his downfall.

"Before my dad left to serve, he made sure I took on every quality I didn't want/ I was supposed to die at birth, gave me another chance, I f**ked it up, gave me another one/ I've been running from secrets I hid as a kid, I never confronted 'em," he raps about his past, alluding to abandonment from both his parents from a young age, before saying he still forgave his mother.

In the song, Kelly raps, "This psychiatrist keeps evaluating / How can I live with the fact / That my hand wasn't on her stomach when we lost the baby".

Referencing the miscarriage his fiancée Megan Fox suffered, MGK raps: "How can I live with the fact/ That my hand wasn't on her stomach when we lost the baby?/ I don't got no one to turn to/ Because everyone's dead in my life that was tryna raise me."

Sean 'Diddy' Combs Denies Rape Allegation, Calls Lawsuit 'Unconstitutional'

Sean 'Diddy' Combs Denies Rape Allegation, Calls Lawsuit 'Unconstitutional'

Sean "Diddy" Combs has denied rape allegations filed against him and called them "fictional" and "unconstitutional."

Combs filed his first legal response to allegations that he "sex trafficked" and "gang raped" a 17-year-old girl in 2003.

Several allegations of sexual assault and abuse have been filed against the rapper and entrepreneur.

A total of four lawsuits have been filed against Diddy. In December, a woman, whose name wasn't disclosed, sued the hip-hop mogul, claiming he and two other men raped her 20 years ago in a New York City recording studio when she was 17.

However, in his first formal response to the lawsuit, attorneys for Combs told federal court that the events simply did not happen: "He never participated in, witnessed, or was or is presently aware of any misconduct, sexual or otherwise, relating to plaintiff in any circumstance whatsoever."

He also complained about the lawsuit's timing and challenged the veracity of the color photographs included in the complaint.

"The context, genuineness, and/or accuracy of the photographs are disputed," his answer states. "Plaintiff's decision to wait more than two decades to file her complaint has prejudiced defendant, as he has lost the ability to defend himself fully and fairly in this action."

"For example, some or all evidence that otherwise would have been available if the action had been promptly commenced may be unavailable, lost, or compromised." Combs and his lawyers further argue the lawsuit should be barred because the Victims of Gender-Motivated Violence Act (GMVA) under which is was brought is purportedly "unconstitutional."

Meanwhile, Diddy's ex-girlfriend Cassie was the first to accuse him of sexual assault, filing a lawsuit in November in which attorneys for Cassie claimed she "endured over a decade of his violent behavior and disturbed demands," including repeated physical attacks and forcing her to "engage in sex acts with male sex workers" while he masturbated. The case was settled.

Combs was later sued by two other women who claimed they were sexually abused by the artist.

Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign To Headline Newly Added Fourth Rolling Loud California Date

Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign are set to headline a newly added fourth day at Rolling Loud California.

Ye will make his return to Rolling Loud after withdrawing from his headlining set in 2022. West is set to perform at the California festival's newly announced Thursday night, March 14, kick-off date.

Ye announced the news when he revealed Vultures would be coming to Rolling Loud with an Instagram post showcasing the updated lineup including himself and Ty Dolla $ign.

"VULTURES COMING TO ROLLING LOUD," West captioned the photo, while Ty flooded his comment section with video camera emojis.

Ticket holders with three-day tickets will have complimentary access to the new headlining slot, the festival said, and those with single-day tickets will be sent an email with the option to upgrade to a three-day pass.

Besides Ye and Ty, other artists headlining the festival include Nicki Minaj, Post Malone, Future and Metro Boomin.
