Last night, Drake headlined the second night of his annual OVO Fest in Toronto. During the set, as usual, he was joined by a series of unannounced special guests. He brought out Da Baby, Lil Baby, Popcaan, Gucci Mane, YG, Tyga, Rick Ross, Meghan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, Offset, Meek Mill and Chris Brown. Find clips from tonight’s guest-filled event below.
The first night of the fest featured performances from B2K, Mario, Ying Yang Twins, and more. On Friday, Drake dropped the singles collection Care Package.
On Friday,”No Guidance” music video was released, and sees the two pretending to face off in a street dance battle.
Ever the actor, Drake tries to taunt Brown with some hilariously awkward moves, including some breakdancing and a heart-stopping Indiana Jones-style maneuver (complete with his own sound effects), before conceding and telling him he’s “the real deal” and sealing their friendship with a handshake and bro hug.
The single “No Guidance” is featured on Brown’s ninth studio album Indigo, which was released in June.
According to reports, The Human Rights Foundation and other organizations have asked artists not to perform in Saudi Arabia, where gender segregation between single men and women is enforced in many restaurants, coffee shops, public schools and universities. Other rules have loosened in the kingdom with women now allowed to drive and attend events at sports stadiums.
Chris Brown notches his third No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, as his new effort Indigo launches atop the list with 108,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending July 4, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 28,000 were in album sales.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Units are comprised of traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new July 13-dated chart (where Indigo bows at No. 1) will be posted in full on Billboard’s websites on July 9.
Indigo’s first week was supported largely by streaming activity, as the set tallied 76,000 SEA units, which equates to 97.95 million on-demand audio streams for the set’s lengthy track list of 32 songs.
Nia tells Page Six “Not true! All is great on our end! Please stop with the Chris Brown bashing.” “It’s just sad that negative things hurry and try and get published! We are just tired of it. … He does pay and is not behind what so ever [sic]
Chris Brown is facing legal issues over child support for his daughter Royalty Brown.
According to the Blast reports, Nia Guzman — who is mother to Brown’s daughter, Royalty — claims that Brown was ordered back in February to pay $17,743 in child support.
She claims that Brown “has repeatedly engaged in conduct that dramatically increased the cost of litigation.” Guzman claims, “He has ignored deposition notices, offered to participate in mediation in a court hearing then failed to even respond to potential mediation dates when proposed, and ignored settlement offers altogether.”
Guzman claims Brown’s actions have created “a great hardship” for her because she does not work and relies on the support from him, calling him “an admitted extraordinary high earner.” She claims he makes $7.5 million a year.
In total, Guzman is seeking $258,285.24 in back support (which includes retroactive support from the beginning of the case) plus sanctions and “the value of housing that [Brown] agreed to supply.”
