We have a few music bits on some of your fave entertainers. Chris Brown and Tyga release their cover art and release date for their upcoming Fan of a Fan 2 album, TLC is currently hitting the studio for their “Final Album” after reaching their Kickstarter goal, a band of Detroit rappers unite for “Detroit vs. Everybody” and you HAVE to see the extra awkward when a fan met Jordin Sparkes recently.
Get it all inside….
As we near the release of Chris Brown and Tyga’s new joint project Fan of a Fan: The Album, the guys have released their 90s themed Kris Kross-esque cover art; the follow up to their 2010 Fan of a Fan mixtape.
It won’t be long before we hear what they have come up with in the studio since it will be released to the masses on February 24th. “Ayo” serves as the first single and they have already started (or possibly finished) giving the track the video treatment.
Breezy took to Instagram to announce, “#FanOfAFan #TheAlbum in stores and on iTunes Feb 24th @kinggoldchains #TeamBreezy! Pre order link in bio.” Tyga also alerted his fans posting, “#FanofAFan The Album in stores and on iTunes on feb 24th”
Breezy and T-Raww are expected to kick off their joint “Between the Sheets” tour with Trey Songz next week in Hampton, VA….as long as a judge approves of Chris’ travels, the show should go on.
In other music news….
Recently, TLC decided to start a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to back their last and final album. Instead of going to a label, they decided to call upon their fans (and friends) to help record the finale of thier girl group music career.
T-Boz and Chilli’s goal was to raise $150,000 by next month, which they would use for writing sessions in the studio with a producer and engineer, booking music producers, mixing sessions, etc. Well, they have surpasses that goal, having kicking it off earlier this week.
And they’re still breaking records. T-Boz tweeted:
I get off the plane 2 find out not only did we reach our goal but we’re the fastest MOST FUNDED POP PROJECT IN #KICKSTARTER HISTORY! Thx

The company spokesman Justin Kazmark released a statement to Yahoo Music which read, “In just four days, their project’s become one of the most funded and anticipated music projects on Kickstarter to date.”
As of Friday evening, the ladies have raised $212,915 with over 2,000 donators. Each donation receives a girft which range from a $15 donation for the digital album to a slumber party in L.A with T-Boz for a $5,000 donation. “Dark Horse” singer Katy Perry donated to the cause:

Detroit rap heads unite for a track as an ode to their hometown titled “Detroit vs. Everybody”. Eminem, Big Sean, DeJ Loaf, Royce Da 5’9”, Danny Brown, & Trick Trick come together to show love to place they were raised. Check it above.
In another video…
An adoring fan was super excited to meet Jordin Sparks as she came bearing gifts: cupcakes. The young lady thanks Jordin for inspiring her to eat healthy and made her some vegan velvet cupcakes shaped into a heart with her name across the top during an event, alongside Breakfast Club host Angela Yee.
Jordin grabs the fan to snap a pic and well…you just have to see what happens. It’s pretty tragic. Check it above.
