A Beyoncé and Jay Z Tour Date Popped Up and Fans Are Freaking Out

Moments after Childish Gambino announced a must-catch tour with Rae Sremmurd early Monday, Facebook event pages started popping up for what's being billed as a sequel to Beyoncé and Jay Z's 2014 On the Run Tour and—wow—I'm definitely going broke this year.

Within minutes, Facebook and Ticketmaster listings for the tour had been scrubbed. Is an official announcement coming? We've reached out to reps and will updated accordingly. Stay tuned.

The original co-headlining On the Run Tour took its name from Jay's Magna Carta Holy Grail cut and arrived on the heels of Beyoncé's exquisite self-titled 2013 album, which of course featured the timeless megaclassic “Drunk in Love.”


If On the Run 2 proves to be a real thing that's actually happening, the timing is perfect. In the years since the original run, Bey and Jay have dropped two more critically acclaimed albums—Lemonade and 4:44, respectively—and appeared together on a new DJ Khaled single alongside Future. Jay Z also previously confirmed a collab album with Beyoncé exists.

In a wide-ranging CNN interview back in January, Jay discussed his relationship with Beyoncé and its influence on Lemonade. “You can be in love and you can love someone, but if you haven't experienced love and you don't understand it, and if you don't have the tools to move forward, then you're going to have complications,” he told Van Jones. “Period.” Jay added that he and Beyoncé were “never” a celebrity couple, but rather “a couple who happened to be celebrities.”

Naturally, a global celebration promptly erupted across social media when an apparent On the Run 2 date popped up Monday:

Rae Sremmurd’s 3-Disc Third Album to Feature Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi’s Solo Debuts

SremmLife 3 is looking like it's about to be a pretty lengthy project, according to Mike Will Made-It.

On the Grammys red carpet Sunday night, the producer told Pitchfork that the brothers' next release would be a triple-disc record that would include solo tracks from Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee. “We got the Swae Lee, Swaecation, Jxmmi's Jxmtroduction, and then the Rae Sremmurd side,” Mike Will said. The actual collaborative portion of the album is yet to be officially named, according to Mike Will, but the very on-brand title Sremmin' is supposedly in the running.

The pair have already proved themselves to be hit-makers—2015's “Throw Sum Mo,” 2016's “Black Beatles,” and most recently, this year's “Unforgettable”—and Swae Lee has confirmed that their latest release will have “the hottest music on the fucking planet” (“the planet…the whole planet”) so it looks like we're in for a massive addition to the rap duo's legacy.

They're not stressing over any Grammy snubs either. In a tweet, Swae Lee stated he's got “15 more on my new album.” Whichever disc these “15” end up on, with Rae Sremmurd's impressive track record, there's no doubt SremmLife 3 will be one of the hottest releases of the new year.

Swae Lee’s ‘Swaecation’ Solo Debut Is Coming Very Soon

It may still be winter, but it looks like it's time for a Swaecation.

Swae Lee is breaking out from his brotherly duo Rae Sremmurd momentarily to give fans his first solo project. On Twitter the 24-year-old rapper/singer announced that 2018 will be the year of Swae Lee with Swaecation Vol. 1, alongside Rae Sremmurd’s highly-anticipated next album SremmLife 3.When a fan asked how soon we could expect a project full of melodic hooks and R&B flavors, Swae responded “definitely in like less than a month confirmed.”

Of course Swae is no stranger to working without his brother Slim Jxmmi. The singer has lent his melodious vocals to many collaborators including French Montana, Ty Dolla Sign, and Trippie Redd.

This new project, however, does not signal steps toward the end of one of the most successful sibling duos of all time. On the contrary, it looks like they're just getting started. SremmLife 3 is on the way, and in a new documentary about the group, Mike WiLL Made-It said “Sremm, they're ready to be in movies, they're ready to be in commercials, they're ready to be models.” 


There's no word yet on what collabs, if any, will be on Swae's upcoming project or what kind of sounds we can expect, but we'll take this little piece of advice from the artist himself and stay optimistic that good things are coming our way. 


Stay optimistic , what’s yours will come your way

Watch Drake Recreate ‘Views’ Cover by Performing on Replica CN Tower at Eighth Annual OVO Fest

Drake and company took to Toronto tonight to put on their eighth annual OVO Fest. The show took place in Toronto and saw performances from Partynextdoor, Majid Jordan, Roy Woods, Dvsn, and the anointed one himself, the ruler of the dominion known as the 6ix, Drake. OVO boss Drizzy also took the opportunity to announce that he is at work on a new album. The project will most likely be out next year. 

In the eight years of OVO fest, there have been plenty of surprise guests. Back in 2011, Drake brought out the legend known as Stevie Wonder. The superstar performed a medley of “I Wish,” “Ribbon in the Sky,” “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” and “Superstitious.” Rick Ross and the Weeknd also performed at the show that year.

In 2014  Lauryn Hill blessed the stage to perform her songs “Ready or Not” and “Lost Ones” and was joined by Drake to perform “Doo Wop” and “Draft Day.” Kanye West was in attendance in 2013 to perform “New Slaves” and “All of the Lights.” 

At the first annual OVO Fest, back in 2010, Drake had Eminem and Jay Z come out. 

For the latest OVO fest, which took place on August 7 at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Drake did it big by performing atop a replica of Toronto's famous CN Tower, impressively recreating the cover of his album Views. Drizzy also brought out Cardi B, who performed her hit track “Bodak Yellow.” Drake also had previous nemesis Tory Lanez come out to perform his “Controlla” remix. ​Oh, and if that wasn't enough Migos, Playboi Carti, Travis Scott, French Montana, The Weeknd, Nelly, and Rae Sremmurd all hit the stage at the star studded show. 

Check out some clips from the eighth annual OVO fest below.

Sean and Scott last appeared together on DJ Khaled's Grateful single “On Everything” alongside Rick Ross.

Sean released his biggest album yet, I Decided, back in February. The album has maintained some serious legs on the charts thanks to a marathon of singles and videos, including “Sacrifices” featuring Migos. The “Sacrifices” video was first released as a gift to fans who made a physical album purchase, with Sean informing them in May that they had been given access to an app that allowed them to get a look at the video before anyone else. Shortly after, the video was made available on YouTube.

This year's Lollapalooza lineup also featured Chance the Rapper, Run the Jewels, Lorde, Blink-182, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage, Majid Jordan, Arcade Fire, Charli XCX, Joey Badass, Rae Sremmurd, and so many more. Catch pro-shot footage of Majid Jordan performing “Her” and Wiz Khalifa running through “Young Wild and Free” below.

Isaiah Thomas Calls Out Draymond Green For Saying Kelly Olynyk is a ‘Dirty Player,’ Green Responds With Subtweet

On Monday, while commenting on the confrontation between Boston's Kelly Olynyk and Washington's Kelly Oubre, Warriors forward Draymond Green raised some eyebrows when he called Olynyk a “dirty, dirty player.” For obvious reasons (see: Steven Adams's balls) people found the statement ironic coming from the Golden State veteran.

Green made the comments while taping his Dray Day podcast.

He further went on to elaborate on that point by saying, “I don't respect guys like that. I know he's not the greatest basketball player of all time, so maybe he feel like he got to do that, but you don't have to do that. Just dirty. I don't respect that, man. He's dirty.”

I feel like that “he's not the greatest basketball player of all time” thing is getting overlooked in all of this.

Anyway, on Tuesday, Celtics star Isaiah Thomas stood up for his teammate by wondering the exact same thing everyone else was wondering when they first heard Green's analysis.

“I don't know how he can call anybody dirty,” said Thomas. “It is what it is. Everybody's got a comment or something to say. That's all it is.”

From there, he implied that the take was a joke coming from Green. No wait, he actually just said it: “It's a joke that [Green] said that. The playoffs, everything somebody says is blown out of proportion. Everything somebody does is blown out of proportion as well. We can't worry about what others are saying or doing.”

Also, when asked if Olynyk was “dirty,” Thomas sarcastically quipped “Kelly's one of the dirtiest players I know.”

He finally wrapped it up with a serious response “No, he's nowhere near dirty. A couple of occasions, wrong time, wrong place. Things happen in basketball, especially physical playoff basketball. He's definitely not dirty.”

To all of that, Green had this much simpler response that happened to subtweet both Thomas and the Celtics, who are currently in a 2-2 second round tie with the Wizards despite being the Eastern Conference's No. 1 seed going into the postseason:

Could be a great bonus storyline if they were to meet up in the Finals! We mean, if it wasn't just destined to be Cavs-Warriors again.
