Rihanna will receive MTV’s lifetime achievement award at the Video Music Awards later this month. It’s MTV’s highest honour and is known as the Michael Jackson video vanguard award. Last year Kanye West won the trophy, with Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears previously getting it. “[The award] reflects an artist’s impact not just on […]

For years, Beyoncé was a hit-machine, defiantly, almost psychotically, churning out chart topping singles. So how, and why, did she become focussed exclusively on the album format? And what does that mean in the age of streaming? “I might get your song played on the radio station,” boasts Beyoncé on Formation, the agenda-setting single she […]

When Fleur East came second in last year’s X Factor, she thought her career was over. The effervescent singer, with her mane of bouncy curls, had been the bookmaker’s favourite to win after her explosive cover of Uptown Funk proved so popular Mark Ronson had to rush the original song into shops a month earlier […]

Beyoncé is in the running for eight prizes at the MTV Video Music Awards including video of the year, best female and best choreography.

Lily Allen’s Sheezus fell to number six, while […]

Kanye West has thanked fans for “unwavering support and love” over the past decade. His Twitter comments came as his debut album, The College Dropout, turned ten. The rapper added: “I am extremely grateful to each and every person along that road who helped, lent an ear, lent their voice, gave of their heart to […]

Beyoncé has unexpectedly released her fifth album on iTunes overnight, with 14 new songs and 17 music videos. The self-titled record is the follow-up to 2011’s 4, and features guest spots from her husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy. “Surprise!” wrote the 32-year-old in a press release, adding she was “bored” of releasing music the […]
