Cordae & Naomi Osaka Confirm They’re Having A Baby Girl: Photos

Something seriously potent has been in the air over the past few months, as we can hardly keep up with all the celebrity pregnancies being revealed. Naomi Osaka and Cordae are one couple who’s nearly on the tail end of their journey to parenthood. The athlete revealed that she’s expecting back in January. The little one will be their first. As they shared during a baby shower on Friday (June 2), it’s a girl!

Osaka shared an adorable snapshot to her Instagram feed earlier today. It shows the rapper kissing her ready-to-burst bump in front of adorable pink and purple decor. In another image, the 25-year-old poses alongside the same balloons and flowers. A more zoomed-out angle reveals the words “A little princess is on the way” written behind her. Cordae reshared the post on his own Story, excitedly using the hashtag “#GirlDad” above it. Clearly, both parents-to-be are eager to enter this new phase of their lives.

Osaka’s tennis career has obviously been derailed by the decision to expand her family. Regardless, she’s vowed to be back in action for the 2024 Australia Open and hasn’t held back on clapping back at critics who are skeptical of her ability to return to the sport with as much strength as before. Even while pregnant, she proved her dedication to the game, sharing videos of training both on the court and at the beach a few months ago.

As for the lyricist, just a few weeks ago we reported that he’s inching closer to joining the ranks of those with the prestigious EGOT status. After taking home an Emmy, he received a letter of congratulation from the Obamas, which he proudly showed off on social media. What do you think Cordae and Naomi Osaka should name their baby girl? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.

Chrisean Rock, who’s over halfway along in her pregnancy now, is certainly emotional based on her latest Instagram posts. Earlier this afternoon, her feed lit up with a video in which she shares a beautiful moment of prayer with her 3.5M followers. While listening to the words of @sarahjakesroberts and cleaning her home, the 23-year-old finds herself overcome with tears, allowing them to freely flow as she moves through her feelings.

“I know better, amen,” she wrote in the caption. As she washes dishes, Chrisean wears several flashy chains around her neck. Her baby bump is on full display under her maroon sports bra, which she paired with comfy yellow shorts. As many fans are noting in the comments, the Baltimore native has a certain glow about her over the past few weeks. “Seeing this new side of you is amazing,” one user praised Rock. “You’re glowing, healing, and look so beautiful. You got this.”

Immediately following that heartwarming post, Rock reminded us that she’s still not afraid to let loose as she nears motherhood. She shared a carousel from her first maternity shoot, consisting of many revealing outfits in true Rihanna fashion. In the caption the reality starlet revealed that Blac Chyna helped her put things together, helping her feel beautiful on her special day.

In some of the snapshots, Rock excitedly looks in the mirror while wearing a bold pink two-piece set. This has caused some to speculate it’s a gender reveal for her unborn baby, though Blueface’s mom has alleged that it’s a boy in the past.

Coi Leray Gets Seriously Cheeky While Activating Superhero Mode In A Pink Latex Outfit

This New Music Friday (June 2), Coi Leray teamed up with Metro Boomin for a new song called “Self Love.” It appears on the brand new Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse soundtrack, along with appearances from other popular rappers like Offset, JID, Don Toliver, Lil Uzi Vert, and 21 Savage. Seeing as her Instagram feed and Story have been lighting up with countless selfies and thirst traps lately, it makes sense why the Boston-born lyricist was picked to put together a confident anthem for the animated film.

Earlier today, Leray turned to social media to celebrate another exciting project she’s got in the works. Wearing a bright pink latex bodysuit, matching gloves, and platform boots, the 25-year-old revealed that she’s officially activated superhero mode. The salacious announcement comes ahead of the arrival of her sophomore album. “GET READY! 👀 @meta 💖🆑,” she added in the caption before reminding her fans that COI is due out on June 23. Leray has already shared a handful of singles from the tracklist. Among them are “My Body” and “Bops,” but many were notably confused when she revealed her full roster of guest features last month.

David Guetta, Saucy Santana, Giggs, Lola Brooke, Skillibeng, and James Brown are all on the list. The latter, specifically, is raising many eyebrows. The “Anxiety” artist has been known to sample throwback hits as of late. It’ll be interesting to see what she has in store with the late funk musician’s discography. On another recently teased single, “Make My Day,” she was criticized for using “Pump Up The Jam,” especially after ranting about oversaturation in the music industry on Twitter recently.

Regardless of what her haters have to say, the genre-bending artist’s fans are more than excited to see what else the rollout for COI has to bring over the coming weeks. Do you think that Coi Leray will top Trendsetter with her sophomore album? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.

Jay-Z’s Former NYC Apartment, Known As “Stash Spot,” Listed For $1.4 Million

Just last month, Jay-Z and Beyonce made American history by purchasing the most expensive home ever in the state of California for $200M. Some Twitter users have been calling the property “ugly” and comparing it to a “prison,” but nevertheless it’s a huge step up from where Hov resided in the late ’90s on 560 State Street. As the NY Post notes, the father of three was both selling drugs and making music at the time, but ultimately gave up the former for a very successful pursuit of the latter.

“I knew something wasn’t right about the things I was doing,” Jay admitted while visiting the property in 2019. “My conscious was alive. So I just decided to let that street life go and just really focus on music. This is what I love to do. If I had my choice to be successful — to be successful in the street or be successful making music, it would be making music.” After letting go of the toxicity in his life, the New Yorker quickly found himself blowing up and achieving all his dreams in the industry.

Jay-Z Spent His Younger Years on 560 State Street

His former residence, popularly known as “Stash Spot,” has been listed for sale for $1.4 million. It’s located in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighbourhood and boasts two levels. The main floor contains a living room, dining area, and powder room. Elsewhere you’ll find a primary bedroom with a large, custom-designed closet, as well as a second room that could fit a bed or function as an office/nursery. Other amenities to be enjoyed by whoever foots the bill include the building’s 6,000-square-foot shared courtyard, an outdoor kitchen, and a gas-fired barbecue pit.

Elsewhere in the news, Ne-Yo made an appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast earlier this week, at which time he revealed that Jay-Z still teases him about giving “Let Me Love You” away to Mario. Read more about that at the link below, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.

Jay-Z Won’t Let Ne-Yo Live Down Giving “Let Me Love You” Away To Mario

Ne-Yo has given us no shortage of hits throughout his career, from “Miss Independent” and “So Sick” to “She Knows” and “Time of Our Lives.” Even with all that he’s achieved, the R&B singer says that Jay-Z still won’t let him live down his decision to give 2004’s “Let Me Love You” to Mario. Ne-Yo reflected on the hit song during his appearance on Shannon Sharpe’s Club Shay Shay podcast, revealing that Hov gives him hell to this day about not keeping the single for himself.

As the 43-year-old tells it, he was primarily working as a songwriter prior to signing with Def Jam Records in 2005. Because he wasn’t focused on a career as a vocalist at the time, he happily passed “Let Me Love You” off to another artist. “So this song goes on and stays at number one for 12 or 13 weeks, something like that, becomes one of the most played songs in radio history,” Ne-Yo said of Mario’s work. “The first time I got to meet Jay-Z, I’d been signed for a couple of months at this point. I walk into the room and he’s in there,” his story continued.

Ne-Yo Reflects on “Let Me Love You”

“It’s in L.A. Reid’s office. I walk in, ‘Hey it’s nice to meet you.’ He’s like, ‘Man, why you give that damn song away?’ Nice to meet you too bruh, cool. I’m Ne-Yo,” the Arkansas native joked. “To this day, he yell at me about giving that damn song away. But I was just a songwriter when I wrote it, I didn’t write it for myself.” After listening to his guest’s story, Sharpe asked Ne-Yo if he believes he could’ve outdone Mario’s version of the song.

The father of five gave his contemporary his flowers, saying, “I’ll be the first to tell you that Mario got chops that I don’t.” However, because he knows he’s got chops of his own, he “feels like it would’ve worked out either way.” Do you think Ne-Yo could’ve found more success by keeping “Let Me Love You” for himself? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more music/pop culture news updates.

Nick Cannon Says Jamie Foxx Will Give A Health Update “When He’s Ready”

In a recent interview with Extra, Nick Cannon discussed the topic of actor Jamie Foxx’s health. When he was asked to give an update, Cannon revealed that Foxx would prefer to update the public himself, “when he’s ready.” Cannon went on to claim that what the public currently knows is the only information Foxx and his family wants them to know for now.

In the interview, Cannon describes being asked to fill in for Foxx amid his hospitalization. It was revealed in May that Cannon would be filling in for Foxx as the host of the series, Beat Shazam. “I was like, ‘I’ll do anything for Jamie,’” he explained. “‘Once I get the blessing I’m there.’” Cannon then discussed having respect for how Foxx has handled the situation. “He’s always been somebody who is extremely professional and extremely private,” he explained. He added, “He’s handled this situation with the same manner, you only can respect that.” The interviewer later asks him to give a health update on Foxx. Cannon said, “As a friend, just being as respectful as I can, I don’t pry. I don’t ask any other questions.” He claims, “When he’s ready, he’s going to address the awaiting fans in the world in the way that only he can.”

Nick Cannon Says Foxx Is “Extremely Private”

“We wanted to share that my father Jamie Foxx experienced a medical complication yesterday,” Foxx’s daughter Corinne shared on social media in April. She added, “Luckily due to quick action and great care he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for privacy during this time.” Following the news of Foxx’s hospitalization, Cannon wrote on social media, “I literally have been saying prayers out loud.” He added, “I know he’s doing so much better.”

Various rumors about Foxx’s health status have been circulating since the actor’s hospitalization. Recently A.J. Benza alleged that Foxx has been left partially blind and paralyzed following the medical complication, despite lack of evidence. He also alleged that the complications arose following Foxx receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, and many social media users are calling his allegations “irresponsible.” None of the rumors surrounding Foxx’s health have been confirmed.

The Weeknd Details Interest In Writing & Co-Producing Madonna Album After “The Idol” Soundtrack Collab

Once again, The Weeknd is proving that his creativity knows no bounds. His latest project, The Idol, finds him not only sitting in the producer and writer’s seats but also starring in and creating the soundtrack alongside some other huge artists. The controversial HBO series made its debut at Cannes Film Festival last month, with many reviews condemning the show for over-sexualizing 23-year-old Lily-Rose Depp in virtually every episode. Fans will be able to tap into the show at home this coming weekend, and ahead of that, Abel Tesfaye gave us a taste of the music that’s to come.

This New Music Friday (June 2) he joined forces with Playboi Carti and Madonna for “Popular,” which brings about a seriously nostalgic sound. The Weeknd spoke with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 about the single, as well as his aspirations for future work with the Queen of Pop. “The thing is, I’ve always wanted to work with her. I’ve always wanted to write and produce a Madonna album… Well, co-produce with her, of course,” the Canadian shared.

He specifically praised Madonna for being “such a visionary” and keeping her sights set on a singular outcome. “I just want to come into her world and create a classic Madonna album. That was always my dream. So this can be… hopefully, this is the appetizer for that,” Tesfaye teased. Elsewhere, he spoke about “Popular” and how “proud” he is of how the track came together.

“Me and Carti had this… I mean, we’ve jammed out before. We’ve had a different version of this song prior. So I’ve had these vocals for a while and I’ve kind of just worked around it, and then kind of kept it in the tuck. But now it felt like it was time. It was time,” the genre-bending vocalist reflected. Would you be excited to stream a joint album from Madonna and The Weeknd?

Kanye West & Bianca Censori’s Penthouse Rent Costs $20K/Month While Rapper’s Mansion Remains Unfinished

Kanye West has been said to be facing serious financial struggles for some time now. Nevertheless, that’s not stopping the father of four from dishing out a reported $20K per month in rent. According to Radar Online, he and his wife Biance Censori have shacked up in West Hollywood. They’re renting a two-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse not far from the recently established Yeezy headquarters on Melrose Avenue. “It’s a gorgeous apartment and the interior is very Ye. It’s a unique spot which is an architect’s dream,” an insider close to the couple dished of their home.

Prior to that, they were staying at the Nobu Ryokan hotel, all while Ye’s Malibu mansion remains uninhabited and reportedly rotting away. At the luxury hotel (which has a minimum two-night stay), the Yeezy founder and Censori were paying $2K a night. His mansion, which he purchased in 2021 for $57M, has been a hot topic lately, particularly after it was revealed that he dissolved his Yeezy Construction Inc. company in November.

At the time, West suddenly halted work on his home. Insiders reveal that the Japanese-inspired residence, designed by Tadao Ando, has since been completely gutted. While that project obviously didn’t work out as expected, the architect has received massive praise for the work he did on Jay-Z and Beyonce’s recently purchased California mansion. The $200M deal broke records in the state, where the power couple now officially owns the most expensive home ever purchased.

It remains unclear what the embattled artist plans to do with his property, but according to recent reports, his fortune is back on the way up as he’s allegedly already made a staggering amount from the continued sale of Yeezy at Adidas. Do you think Kanye West will ever finish his mansion? Let us know in the comments, and check back later for more hip-hop/pop culture news updates.
