Yeezy season approachin’! Yes, it’s true: musical mastermind Kanye West has told GQ Magazine that his follow-up album to ‘Yeezus’ will be out in September. He wanted to put the record out this summer, but felt he needed to spend time with little North West. (Awww!) The rapper also said that he does have, however, a single titled ‘All Day’ that he hopes to put out “in the next couple of weeks, just to have something up and running.” He promises that it will be a song to jam out to in the club. Ok, Ye. Bring it on.

Beyoncé Remixes ‘Crazy In Love’ For ‘50 Shades’ Movie
Uh oh. Uh oh. Uh oh. Oh no, no. The first official trailer for the raunchy ’50 Shades of Grey’ movie recently premiered and its steamy scenes aren’t the only thing that have people talking. Along with the preview came a slowed down, sultry version of Queen Bey’s ‘Crazy in Love’. Did you ever think we would get another version of this 2003 hit? Well we’re certainly glad that Beyoncé dug this one out of the vault and remixed it for a hit movie that is sure to blow up in theatres. Maybe we will get a full soundtrack from Mrs. Carter to accompany the ’50 Shades’ franchise? We sure hope so. We’re definitely ‘crazy in love’ with the new sound, Bey.
