We’re only a couple of days away til Dangerous Woman drops.To promote its release, Ariana Grande has been extremely generous previewing tracks off her third studio LP. Just in case you’ve missed a few of them, I’ve embedded three of my favorites.

The 22-year-old has teamed up with Nicki Minaj a couple of times previously, most notably for the smash hit “Bang Bang.” They reunite for a reggae-influenced number, titled “Side By Side,” that has massive potential. Her sugary vocals work well with the rapper’s spicy rhymes.

Speaking of opposites, Ariana’s collaboration with Macy Gray is exactly that. These two couldn’t be any more different but Macy’s husky tones are a perfect complement to Ariana’s silky runs. Fingers crossed “Leave Me Lonely” gets an official release. I’d love to see this duo co-star in a clip.

If there’s a track that is guaranteed to get an official release, it’s “Greedy.” This one is extremely catchy with its infectious funky beat. Give it and the other two a listen below.

time-influential-leonardo-dicaprio

Time magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People list celebrates pioneers, titans, artists, leaders, innovators and icons and more. Each person to make the cut is the subject of a short essay written by another notable public figure. In Leonardo DiCaprio’s case, it’s from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

“Leo’s talent is limitless, but his secret has always been pretty simple: he’s real. He does his homework. He knows what he’s talking about. That’s how he takes himself back in time 200 years to create an Oscar-winning, bear-brawling, powerhouse performance in The Revenant.” – John Kerry is the U.S. Secretary of State

Nicki Minaj, Priyanka Chopra, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, Hamilton maestro Lin-Manuel Miranda and International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde all received their own separate covers for the 2016 class.

Other notable names to make the cut this year include Adele, Ronda Rousey, Taraji P. Henson, Caitlyn Jenner, Aziz Ansari, Hillary Clinton, Karlie Kloss, Jordan Spieth, Ariana Grande and Melissa McCarthy to name a few. Check out below all the other covers which were snapped by photographer Ben Hassett.

american-idol-judges-reunite

I’m going to make this short and sweet for now as I have to head out for a birthday dinner. Until I write my commentary, check out all the performances on the American Idol series finale. It was an epic trip down memory lane with all the original judges reuniting for one last time. Check out all the action below. I’ll upload missing vids later.

bebe-rexha-no-broken-hearts

No disrespect to Bebe Rexha but Nicki Minaj steals the show with her twerking prowess in her new clip. The control the 33-year-old rapper has with her booty is beyond impressive. Let’s just say, her fiancé is one lucky man.

No Broken Hearts” is the lead cut off Rexha’s forthcoming debut album. It’s the second time the ladies have worked together. They previously assisted David Guetta on “Hey Mama.”

I wasn’t feeling the track that much, but the music video has helped a little. Check out the Dave Meyers-directed clip below which features Bebe rocking numerous looks. If you put the video on mute, it could pass for a Calvin Klein jeans ad.

Andy Cohen never met a pun he didn’t like. God bless 😉

The “Plead The Fifth” segment is typically the most revealing part during a celebrity’s visit on Watch What Happens Live. Not so in Iggy Azalea’s case. In actuality it was quite meh and uneventful.

Thankfully, the 25-year-old Aussie rapper spilled much more tea during another segment. Watch her discuss her supposed feuds with Macklemore, T.I. and Britney Spears. Speaking of the latter, Iggy discloses which Las Vegas residency show she’d rather see. Britney or J. Lo? Watch below to find out.

She’s penned “The Monster” (Eminem, Rihanna), “All Hands On Deck” (Tinashe) and “Hey Mama” (David Guetta) to name a few. The Albanian-American singer is also currently riding high with her G-Eazy collaboration “Me, Myself, & I” which is a Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit. Bebe Rexha isn’t a household name yet but she’s definitely on the cusp.

She reunites with Nicki Minaj on “No Broken Hearts,” the lead cut off her debut album. The two previously assisted Guetta on “Hey Mama.” It’s a solid track but doesn’t scream immediate hit, but has potential to be a slow burn.

Hopefully for the video, the 26-year-old singer returns to her darker locks. She’s far more stunning as a brunette than as a blond. Don’t you agree? Give her new single a listen below.

nicki-minaj-beef

Looks like Nicki Minaj isn’t letting her beef with Miley Cyrus die anytime soon. The 33-year-old rapper throws some shade at the “Wrecking Ball” singer on a new remix for Yo Gotti’s “Down in the DM.”

“He said ‘Kylie, what’s good?’/I said Miley, what’s good?/I said could you pay my bills like O’Reilly, what’s good?”

If you recall, Minaj put Cyrus on blast at the MTV Video Music Awards for Miley’s New York Times interview about Minaj’s feud with Taylor Swift. At first, Cyrus thought Minaj was joking but then quickly realized “What’s Good, Miley?” was a threat.

Give the track a listen below which includes Minaj name dropping Beyonce, Bill O’Reilly and Kylie. Pretty safe to say the latter is referencing Jenner and not Minogue. You never know with Nicki though 😉

adele-carpool-karaoke

The Late Late Show’sCarpool Karaoke” is hands down my favorite late night television segment. On Wednesday, I became an infinitely bigger fan. The one and only Adele took a spin with James Corden. Instead of driving around in Los Angeles, Corden and Adele roamed the streets of rainy London.

As always, Corden sings along to his passenger’s biggest hits along with a few tracks from other artists. Watching Adele take on the Spice Girls and Nicki Minaj made my day. Speaking of the former, the 27-year-old songbird reveals she was heartbroken when Geri Halliwell aka Ginger Spice (her favorite) left the group.

My favorite parts of any “Carpool Karaoke” segment are always the singing moments, but in this case, the random conversations are equally entertaining. Adele’s story about getting drunk had me howling. Check out the 15-minute clip below.
