Cardi B Extends Apple Music Dominance With Success Of GloRilla’s “Tomorrow 2”

Cardi B has earned her 11th chart-topping single on Apple Music with the remix of GloRilla’s “Tomorrow” single, “Tomorrow 2.” The song reached number one on “Apple Music’s Top 100: USA” just two days after releasing on Friday, September 23. This feat extends her lead as the female artist with the most number ones on the chart.

“THANK YOU EVERYBODY… most important BARDIGANG,” Cardi tweeted in response to the feat. “Sooo proud of BG……When I get my LS check I’m going to do someee very special for yall.”

“WE NUMBER #1 COUSINNNNN@iamcardib…” GloRilla, who is best known for her break-out summer anthem single “F.N.F.,” added in a post of her own. “IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS THANK Y’ALL SO MUCH.”

The song’s success comes after Cardi recently dealt with fans being concerned over a change in her appearance. She explained on social media, earlier this week, that this was due to her body being swollen over water retention.

“I’m retaining water all over my body,” she told her followers. “That’s why my cheeks, my lips, my thighs, my f**king feet. Everything is, my thighs are so swollen.”

“Tomorrow 2” is the latest of numerous singles Cardi has appeared on or released herself in 2022 as she gears up for her long-awaited sophomore album.

Ari Fletcher Addresses Rumours About Moneybagg Yo, DreamDoll, Meek Mill, & More: Watch

On the latest episode of Dinner with the Don, 27-year-old Ari Fletcher had plenty of rumours to address, and the mother of one didn’t hesitate to get vulnerable when discussing everything from the current status of her relationship with Moneybagg Yo to the online gossip about her and DreamDoll’s alleged feud.

While working on cooking an at-home KFC Bowl with her friend Tuson, he asked The Don, “Are you single?”

Ari promptly looked up at him and responded with, “You know, I’m in between jobs,” with a shrug and a smile, earning a laugh from everyone in the room.

While that comment didn’t exactly answer the question, she would later reveal in the episode that she did, in fact, break up with her rapper boyfriend, although she didn’t specify exactly why. “I did break up with that motherf*cker,” she confirmed while stirring ingredients together.

“Yes, I did! Yes, I did, because he had me f*cked up!” she went on, although when asked if she plans to take her ex back, her friend chimed in and said, “Who knows what the future gon’ hold.”

At the same time, Fletcher clarified that the reason for her and the Memphis-born rapper’s drama has nothing to do with any infidelity. “That whole little thing, it wasn’t about no cheating, it didn’t have nothing to do with nobody else,” she clarified. “It was just between me and him.”

When she was asked about her friendship with DreamDoll – who she’s rumoured to have been beefing with lately – the YouTuber made it clear that while she has a lot of love for Dream, she’s “straight on her right now,” but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re on the outs.

As for the gossip floating around that Fletcher had found herself a soccer player to spend time with after declaring herself a single woman, she shut those down quickly. “No, I do not know that man, y’all,” she insisted.

“Seriously, we just went to a soccer game because it was something that we’ve never done before, and I guess the passes we had just so happened to be his,” the model explained.

Finally, the Chicago native addressed the Meek Mill speculation that arose during New York Fashion Week, after the two celebrities posted up separately in similar-looking hotel rooms. The “FWM” artist had previously denied the claims shortly after they wound up on various blogs, and now Fletcher is doubling down on his response.

Brittney Griner’s College Coach Refuses To Give Her Opinion On Griner’s Imprisonment

Brittney Griner is currently serving a nine-year prison sentence in Russia after being convicted of drug possession and smuggling. In the eyes of many, this sentence is a massive injustice that needs to be fixed immediately. The United States is looking into a prisoner swap, but for now, nothing is set in stone.

Most of Griner’s former teammates have spoken about this injustice, except for her former Baylor Coach Kim Mulkey. Today, Mulkey was asked directly about Griner’s imprisonment, to which she said that she would not be commenting on the story, at all.

This was a pitiful response when you consider how Griner helped Mulkey win a National Championship while also bringing her to two final fours. Her career at Baylor was phenomenal, and Mulkey owes much of her success to the WNBA champion. Queen Ego, a former Baylor player, commented on Mulkey’s remarks, noting that it is pretty despicable.

“A player that built Baylor, 2 national titles, & a 40-0 record,” Egbo wrote. “Yet her former coach refuses to say anything or simply just show any kind of support. Keep that in mind when you’re choosing schools.”

Interestingly enough, the current coach for Baylor Nicki Colleen had a much better answer when asked about Griner. As you can see, Colleen noted that Griner means a lot to the Baylor program and that she sees Griner as a human first. Colleen also believes 10 years is way too long for a simple mistake of this magnitude.

“No one’s saying she didn’t make a mistake. None of us are perfect,” Colleen said. “But I guess I would wanna know if I did something and was stuck in a foreign country, what it was, what it wasn’t. I think we all know that 10 years is a long time. I see her as a mother, as a sister, as a spouse, as a daughter, as an unbelievable ambassador for the game of basketball.”

Griner’s Phoenix Mercury were instrumental in the efforts to get her home and we’re sure they will continue that fight.

Stay tuned to HNHH for updates on this developing story.

During the dinner, Wayne’s friends and family played a video of some of his friends, peers, and associates in the entertainment industry showing him the utmost love. Weezy’s protegé’s, Nicki Minaj and Drake, offered him the utmost praise for changing their lives forever. However, it was Kanye West who reiterated the claims of Wayne’s protegés.

“Yo, we out here in Paris,” he said before speaking inaudibly. “Happy birthday to the GOAT, Lil Wayne. This is Ye.”

The tribute video also contained tributes from Floyd Mayweather, and NBA Youngboy, who aptly referred to himself as Wayne’s “son.”

The five-minute clip also boasted additional appearances from DJ Khaled, 2 Chainz, Janet Jackson, and more, before closing out with Khaled’s “God Did.”

Wayne’s birthday festivities included even more surprises. As he was joined by his friends for a lovely dinner, Keith Sweat popped out for a private performance. The legendary R&B singer performed his 1987 hit, “Don’t Stop Your Love,” as the rap phenom got his groove on. Clearly, it was an incredible night to commemorate Lil Wayne’s life.

Happy birthday, Lil Wayne! Sound off in the comments with your favorite Lil Wayne verse of all time.

Chris Brown Is In Awe Of Fan With Massive Portrait Tattoo

Fans these days will go all out to show their dedication to, or receive the attention of, their favorite artists. There was a time when wearing a t-shirt of a musician showed just how much someone admired their music, but as generations move from one to the next, fans have been showing love in more inventive ways.

Tattoos have become a common form of expression as it isn’t difficult to find music lovers with permanent ink that gives a nod to their favorite songs, albums, concerts, or artists. Chris Brown is an icon who is bombarded with images of his fans paying homage, and he highlighted another in a recent post.

Portrait tattoos require a level of commitment that not everyone has, especially for an artist that they don’t know personally. Yet, people feel so connected to Breezy that they regularly visit parlors in hopes of having something that connects them to the singer for life.

Brown highlighted a fan recently because the man’s tattoo was hard to ignore. “BRO WENT CRAZY [fire emoji],” he wrote alongside the image. The already-heavily tattooed fan inked Brown’s portrait on his head, right next to another tattoo of Michael Jackson.

There have been ongoing debates regarding whether or not MJ or CB is the King of Pop, but this guy made room for both on his dome.

Kevin Gates Reflects On Weight Loss Journey: “Hard Work Pay Off”

Kevin Gates reflected on his weight loss journey in a post on Instagram, Tuesday, sharing a video he recorded back in 2019 when he was over 300 pounds. Speaking candidly to his followers, Gates explained the harsh toll his body had been taking on his mental health at the time.

“This video was taken on the 22nd day of April 2019,” Gates wrote in the caption. “I was over 300lbs with a set of titties – I was miserable, fat, and, unhappy, and a junky.”

He continued: “I had to find flaws in others to make myself feel okay – until you find true love for self – you can never truly love someone else – I love you all I’m never looking back – slow motion is always better than no motion – hard work pay off break not a day off.”

Back in 2019, Gates had originally said that the decision to focus on losing weight came after one of his friends’ children, “tried to suck on my breast,” which he said, “hurt my fuckin’ feelings.”

As for music, Gates released his first full-length album since 2019, Khaza, earlier this year. The project peaked at number eight on the US Billboard 200 and includes a feature from Juicy J.

Ben Simmons Shoots Threes At Nets Practice: Watch

Ben Simmons is known for having a bad shot. Throughout the first few years of his NBA career, Simmons has been roasted on numerous occasions for not getting off shots, while only making enough three-pointers to count on one finger.

When you are a point guard, this kind of playing style is pretty well unacceptable and it has forced his teams to try him out in different roles. Having said that, Simmons is still working on his three-point shot as he just wants to prove everyone wrong. It’s something he works on every year, and now that he is in Brooklyn, fans will be watching him closely to make sure he has truly improved.

This week, Simmons got to start training camp with the Nets, and by all accounts, he will be available to play come opening night.

In the following clip below, Simmons can be seen getting off to a solid start at Nets camp thanks to some three-point shooting drills. Simmons was making his shots and his jumper looks a lot better. Of course, we’ve fallen into this trap before, so there is no telling whether or not this translates into next season.

Hopefully, Simmons can finally prove everyone wrong and show that he can actually hit jumpers. Until then, stay tuned to HNHH for more news from the NBA world.
