So the biggest news out there, music wise, is BEYONCE. She has come back with a vengeance. If you don’t believe me, check all of this out. She is definitely Running the WORLD right now.

Beyonce Performing Who Runs The World on Oprah – Bey said she was honored to perform for Oprah on what will be one of Oprah’s last shows.

Kelly Rowland is also back on the scene w/ her new video for Motivation.

Now for my usual…
