Beyoncé Enlists Madonna for ‘The Queens Remix’ of ‘Break My Soul’ & Yes, It’s Iconic

Published

on

Get ready to strike a pose and vogue, because Beyoncé and Madonna have come together as one for “Break My Soul (The Queens Remix).”

Queen Bey enlisted the Queen of Pop for the new edition of “Break My Soul” after she recently dropped four remixes of the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 smash by will.i.am, Terry Hunter, Honey Dijon and Nita Aviance. But for this remix, Bey pays homage to iconic Black women in music while taking a page out of Madonna’s playbook by reciting the names in the style of Madge’s spoken-word section from her 1990 three-week Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 smash “Vogue.”

The disco-tinged house track — which also topped the Dance Club Songs tally — name-checks famous “Golden Age” actors from Marlon Brando to James Dean to Grace Kelly to Bette Davis. But when Bey takes over the dance floor, she shouts out “Queen Mother Madonna, Aaliyah, Rosetta Tharpe, Santigold, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Solange Knowles, Badu this, so Kelly Rowl… Lauryn Hill, Roberta Flack, Toni, Janet, Tierra Wack. Missy, Diana, Grace Jones, Aretha, Anita, Grace Jones.” She also mentions her fellow Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams, Parkwood Entertainment signees Chloe x Halle, Alicia Keys, Whitney Houston, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj before naming legendary ballroom houses, including House of Revlon, House of LaBeija, House of Amazon, House of Balmain, House of Miyake-Mugler and House of Balenciaga.

This marks Beyoncé and Madonna’s first proper collaboration, after Bey appeared in Madge’s star-studded “Bitch I’m Madonna” music video from 2015, which famously featured Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Miley Cyrus, Diplo, Katy Perry and many more.

The “Break My Soul (The Queens Remix)” is currently only available to purchase on Beyoncé’s website here for $1.29.

Inside Garth Brooks’ Epic Celebration of the End of His 3-Year Tour With Wife Trisha Yearwood (Exclusive)

Published

on

Popping bottles and toasting with the closest people in his life! Garth Brooks is celebrating the end of his three-year world tour with champagne and festivities!

ET’s Rachel Smith was exclusively with Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood, at the epic afterparty following his final stop on the North American leg of his Garth Brooks Stadium Tour!

Amid the revelry, Brooks spoke with Smith about the tour wrapping up and said that he truly doubts he’ll be headlining a tour of this magnitude in the foreseeable future.

“I don’t think we’ll ever do a stadium tour again, ever. It’s just too much on the crew,” Brooks shared. “These guys haven’t been home in six months.”

However, Brooks celebrated the fact that his road crew is “finally gonna get to go home and see their families.”

That being said, Brooks admitted that retirement from live performing isn’t in the cards, and when it comes to tours, “It’s never the last one.”

Yearwood, meanwhile, shared that the champagne wrap party celebration was somewhat “bittersweet” by nature, “Because you enjoy every second along the way.”

“The last show is always the special one. This is something that, even though some of us will work together again, it’ll never be like this exact moment,” she added.

While the three-year tour is nearly done, Brooks still has more than enough on his plate, including the release of his new book, The Anthology, Part II: The Next Five Years.

Additionally, Brooks is set to narrate a 10-part documentary series, National Parks, for NatGeo, and the country crooner reflected on his workload, sharing, “It’s gonna be fun! Here’s the deal, man, if you wake up you got a job to do.”

That also means he has no interest in ever giving up on his music. “I think hopefully I’ll die with my guitar on,” Brooks shared.

“I just want to be wherever that woman is, and I’ll be happy.” Brooks said, referring to Yearwood. “But if I’m gonna get to play music, then I’m a lucky, lucky man.”

Brooks’ The Anthology, Part II: The Next Five Years is available for purchase exclusively on talkshoplive.

The Garth Brooks Stadium Tour comes to a final close in September with shows in Ireland on Sept. 9-11 and 16 and 17.

Eminem Challenges Beyonce for U.K. Albums Chart Title

Published

on

Shady’s back, and he wants another U.K. No. 1.

Eminem could get what he wants with Curtain Call 2 (via Interscope), which dropped last Friday (Aug. 5) and is well-placed for a run to the chart summit.

Based on midweek sales and streaming data, Curtain Call 2 is the U.K.’s No. 2 album, less than 100 combined units behind the leader, Beyonce’s Renaissance (Columbia/Parkwood Entertainment), the Official Charts Company reports.

Curtain Call 2 is the sequel to Em’s 2005 career retrospective Curtain Call: The Hits, which remains in the Top 20 after 512 weeks on the chart, a stretch that has included five weeks at No. 1.

With Curtain Call 2, the Detroit hip-hop star can extend on his record ten U.K. No. 1 albums to his name, all consecutive, dating back to 2000’s The Marshall Mathers LP. No other act in U.K. chart history has ruled the chart with as many album titles in a row.

Meanwhile, Beyonce’s Renaissance leads the Official Chart Update, and is on track for a second week at No. 1, while Calvin Harris is chasing a fifth Top 5 album, with Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2 (Columbia), opening at No. 5 on the chart blast.

ABBA’s Gold: Greatest Hits (Polydor) is on the rise following news of a 30th anniversary edition. Gold is slated for the reissue treatment Sept. 23 in several new formats, including special 2LP picture disc. The Swedish superstars’ hits compilation has lived on the chart for a record 1,057 weeks.

Further down the list, metal group Dub War could bag their first U.K. Top 20 with Westgate Under Fire (Earache), their third studio album. It’s new at No. 12 on the midweek chart.

Finally, Neil Young and Promise of the Real is set to start at No. 14 with Noise & Flowers (Reprise), recorded during their 2019 European tour, while U.S. ska outfit The Interrupters could impact the chart for the first time with In the Wild (Hellcat), their fourth studio album. It’s new at No. 17 on the chart update.

The Official U.K. Albums Chart is published late Friday.

Iggy Azalea Says She’s Making Music Again: ‘I’m Coming Back. Cry About It’

Published

on

Iggy Azalea’s last release, 2021’s “The End of an Era,” marked the Australian rapper’s final bow — or so we thought. On Monday morning, Azalea seemingly retracted that sentiment.

“A year ago I was willing to walk away from music because I was tired of the negative energy it attracted,” she tweeted. “But what I’ve learned is that even when I’m minding my business, y’all gonna be negative and nosey. So if I can’t have peace, neither can you. I’m coming back. Cry about it.”

A little over a year ago, Azalea told audiences that “End of an Era” would be her final album so she could take “a few years to focus on other creative projects and things I’m feeling passionate and inspired by beyond music.” She also added that she was looking forward to sharing “different sides” to her in the future.

In an August 2021 interview on the Zach Sang show, Azalea explained that “End of an Era” was the final album she had to deliver as a part of a distribution deal with her label, Bad Dreams Records (Empire). “That was two albums, contractually. I don’t have anybody that I need to make happy.” She also added that she would possibly get another deal in “three to four years” but also expressed — pretty definitively — that “End of an Era” would be her final studio album release.

She also mentioned her decision to stop releasing music came because of the increased assumptions made about her lyricism in relation to her real-life relationships. It remains unclear whether Azalea has plans to seek another distribution deal or plans to release a full studio album again.
