Usher unwittingly decided to on Instagram Live with Swizz Beatz and throw around some possible combinations and match ups they could think for Verzuz TV.

Usher was thrown the idea of Nicki Minaj, who has bene making headlines and enjoying the top spot with Doja Cat, and Lil Kim and proceeded with saying that Nicki “was a product” of Lil’ Kim.

Yes, Twitter and the Barbz have been let loose.

“Usher said nicki is a product of Kim like Nicki ain’t surpassed kims ass 10 times over and Kim can’t even rap no more. How can a product out do the original? No sequel to a amazing movie does well most times… so how can nicki be a product of another bitch? Nicki is nicki,” said one of many Nick Minaj’s ardent fans.

Um, but just to clear something up. This is a quote from Nicki Minaj in 2009 — quite early in her career — she said this when she was asked to name her top 5 rappers, “Kim is the pioneer for my generation. She’s the trend setter. She’s the Queen Bee.” So really, Usher is not ways off when he says quite blatantly what Nicki had confessed a decade ago.

Nav Uses Drugs As A Tool To Make Music

The Canadian producer and rapper, Navraj Singh Goraya known by his stage name NAV in recent virtual interview, revealed how he uses drugs as a tool to create music. Nav has been known for his “Bad Habits” album which now is being followed by “Good Intentions” and a deluxe version “Brown Boy 2”.

After massive successes with artists like Travis Scott, Weeknd and more, Nav earns No.1 on Billboard Top 200 Chart with his new album “Good Intentions”. He has done extraordinary well with 135k in just the first week after dropping the album.

Nav refers to usage of drugs in his songs which made his fans believe that he might be abusing drugs. The singer has cleared the air by stating that he doesn’t consume drugs the way he used to at the start to his career. The track “Overdose” from the “Good Intention” album also talk about drugs but apparently the song reflects a moment in the past.

Nav ensures to spread the message to the young artists that they don’t need drugs to be creative. “The power of your thoughts is way more powerful than any drug in the world, that’s what I’m learning… but you don’t need nothing. “

Nav also discloses the side effects of drugs that have on him, “I wish sometimes I didn’t even smoke weed. At the end of the day, it makes me less productive, it makes me eat worse. I wouldn’t like say, ‘Yeah, you should do this.'”

We are definitely taking the Nav’s advise on staying away from drugs but also congratulate him on this success.

Jonas Brothers and Karol G Get Groovy: Watch Now

The Jonas Brothers hop back in their game with their new music video for “X” – a collaboration with Latin star Karol G. Hopping on the Latin acoustic pop train with this new track, social distancing never looked as good as it does in this groovy music video. 

The music video sees the Jonas Brothers and Karol G dancing to the track, from their respective homes with self taken videos, in collaboration with “directors over Zoom call”. The boys are slick in their outfits, while Karol G serves up some serious glam in a red dress. As per usual, Nick and Joe groove to the lyrics while Kevin draws attention to his trusted companion – the guitar. 

As far as quarantine videos go, this one by the Jonas Brothers and Karol G serves up some real inspiration. Complete with its use of stop motion animation, and snappy cuts, it makes you want to get up and dance, just as much as the track itself.
