    ‘Basketball Wives’ scores series big

    The season 4 premiere of "Basketball Wives" was a slam dunk! VH1 has announced that 3.7 million viewers tuned in to see the ladies make their big return.

    To put it in perspective, that means the ratings are up about 42 percent from the season 3 premiere. 

    Last Monday’s show pulled in 2.5 million viewers for the 8 p.m. showing and another 1.2 for the 9:30 p.m. encore.

    Dawn Richard releases ‘Fly’

    Dawn Richard has taken off with a new single titled "Fly" from her upcoming EP.

    This is the second track from the studio project that she’s released in as many weeks since announcing her departure from Bad Boy.

    For this cut, Dawn is super-confident in her ability to get people on their feet. The chorus sends the song into the stratosphere as she sings, “I am the definition of fly/ Tell all you haters hi/ If you wit’ me, put your hands real high/ Nobody can do it like I.”

    Andre 3000 dispels rumors of new OutKast album

    Andre 3000 is ready to hop back into the studio to do his own music. With collaborations on Beyoncé’s "Party," among others, the Atlanta rapper told GQ magazine that he’s been honored to still be in such high demand.

    "I’ve been privileged to have these new artists kind of reach out and grab back and say, ‘Hey, Andre, we want you on this song,’" he explained. "So I’ve been taking those calls and for the last two years, I’ve been doing collaborations. So these new artists have kind of been keeping me alive."

    With the news that he’s ready to get back in the studio for himself, people really want to know if that means that he’ll be teaming up with Big Boi for another OutKast album.

    "There’s been a lot of talk on the Internet about an OutKast album and I have to say that as of now, there are no plans for another OutKast album," Andre said. "I think I’m planning to do a solo project. I don’t know when it will come out, but hopefully it’ll come out this year. As far as OutKast, I really don’t know if or when that will happen."
