Logic bows at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (chart dated Dec. 5), earning the rapper his first chart-topper as his sophomore studio album, The Incredible True Story¸ opens with 118,000 copies sold in the week ending Nov. 19, according to Nielsen Music. Over on the Billboard 200 it starts at No. 3 with 135,000 equivalent album units.

The rapper surpasses the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums entrance of his debut album, Under Pressure, which opened at No. 2 on the chart with 73,000 copies (Nov. 8, 2014).

True Story is a concept album (subtitled …And the Transformation of the Man Who Saved the World), which takes place 100 years in the future in a post-apocalyptic voyage to a new planet (called Paradise).

Two songs from the set enter Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, led by “Fade Away,” which arrives at No. 44 with the majority of contributing points coming from 1.9 million weekly streams -- with 56 percent stemming from Spotify plays. The second song to debut on the list is “I Am The Greatest,” just barely making the bottom of the chart at No. 50 with 1.7 million streams backing its entry.

Both album tracks mark Logic’s first and second titles to ever appear on the hybrid chart, which blends airplay, sales, and streaming.

Logic returns to the Billboard Artist 100 chart, which measures the week's most popular artists, amid activity surrounding the release of True Story.

Lupe Fiasco Helps REVOLT Live Celebrate 1-Year Anniversary With Pair Of Performances

Not only did REVOLT Live celebrate their one year anniversary tonight (January 27), Lupe Fiasco hyped up the audience with new material off his latest album Tetsuo & Youth. Lupe kicked off the festivities with his latest single from his project, "Deliver," (below) with a cameo from up-and-coming singer PJ in place of Ty Dolla $ign's featured vocals. The crowd shouted, "Lupe, Lupe, Lupe," as he smiled and thanked the packed audience for all their support across his journey. Fiasco later returned for an encore performance to "Adoration of the Magi," (above) Crystal "RØVÉL" Torres to close out the show.

If this was a prelude as to what's to come from Lupe Fiasco, as well as season two of REVOLT Live, let's just say—first impressions are everything.

Lupe Fiasco releases “Adoration Of The Magi” (feat. Crystal "RØVÉL" Torres)

 Lupe Fiasco is quickly creeping up on the release of his long-awaited Tetsuo &  Youth LP and today we have to the pleasure of putting our ears on the wavy new joint “Admiration Of The Magi,” featuring the supreme talents of one Crystal Torres. Phased-out drums and Torres’ patented horny horn arrangements lead the charge of gentle electric keys on this DJ Dahi production with Fiasco lacing introspective words together in an on-point display of verbal athletics. If you’re not familiar with all of the players on this one, it’s actually quite the roster. Dahi, of course, should be known for his work with Kendrick Lamar on the GKMC standout “Money Trees”, Drake‘s anthem of impropriety “Worst Behavior” and most recently on Big Sean‘s hit single “IDFWY.” Torres can be found sharing stages with Beyoncé as her right-hand trumpet lady and has worked with Jay Z, Jhene Aiko and a slew of A-listers. Lupe’s Tetsuo & Youth LP is due out on January 20th and has already seen a laundry list of uncharacteristically atmospheric joints for you to knock to. Preorder the record on iTunes today and listen to Lupe Fiasco’s latest drop “Adoration Of The Magi” below.

Jhene Aîko - “Souled Out”

Ever since she released “The Worst”, American has fallen in love with Jhené Aiko. The 26-year-old LA-born singer-songwriter – of Japanese mother and African-American father – released late last year her debut EP “Sail Out”, and in only a few days the Def Jam-signed rising star will drop her full-length debut album "Souled Out" - to be precise, on September 9th. The album release will be preceded by two official singles; "To Love & Die" and the most-recent "The Pressure" - whose music video you can watch here.

On “Souled Out”, Jhené worked with producers such as: No I.D, Key Wane, Fisticuffs or Dot Da Genius. There’s only one collaboration on the album and that’s “Pretty Bird” with rapper Common. Aiko’s “Sail Out” EP was filled with duets, so I find it a bit surprising she only wanted Common to appear on the album. We all had hopes a new Drake collaboration would be included! Maybe for a future re-release?

Jhené Aiko’s “Souled Out” album will have three versions. The standard and the deluxe, featuring 12 and 14 tracks respectively, and the Target exclusive version which will carry two bonus tracks.

OTR Tour Opens in Miami

Erotica, glamour, swagger, street cred, and finally, a peek at marriage and family bliss all came together during Beyonce and Jay Z’s “On the Run” tour, which opened in Miami’s Sun Life Stadium last night (June 25). It was over two hours of tightly choreographed showmanship that was timed to the second, alternating between the pair’s solo history, their collaborative hits and by duet versions of hits both have originally recorded with others. Jay Z & Beyonce "On The Run": Opening Night in Miami Photos   The sheer volume of material, coupled with the cinematic theme (more on that later) and Beyoncé’s jaw-dropping wardrobe changes made for a highly entertaining and impressive show that went from the glamorous to the profane.   Jay Z & Beyonce's "RUN" Fashion: Stylist Rob Zangardi on Dressing Music's Hottest Couple But it was also a rather detached show. Yes, there was more than enough of Mr. and Mrs. Carter to satisfy the crowd here; those on the floor level, at least, never sat down and sang or rapped along to every single song, not missing even a beat of Jay’s raps. And these two enjoy the privilege of being some of the few acts that seem to appeal equally to male and female fans. But despite the obvious adulation, the lines between performers and audience were very sharply delineated and both Jay and Beyoncé’s were careful to adhere to script and procedure every step of the way. If there was no room for error, there wasn’t room either for spontaneity or audience interaction in this very finely tuned performance where one song bled seamlessly into the other, with brief musical interludes or snippets of film serving as transitions. The idea was to create an atmosphere and tell a story.   “On The Run,” the tour, is inspired on the theme and aesthetic seen on the tour “film” trailer (with cameos by the likes of Sean Penn), which features the Carters in “Bonnie and Clyde” mode, firing semi automatics (although last night little signs of “not real guns” appeared constantly on screen) and executing multi-million dollar heists with attitude and high fashion sense. The live show follows the same storyline of the couple on the run, kicking off with black and white scenes from the film, playing in a gigantic center screen flanked by two other giant screens that allowed the audience in the humongous Sun Life Center to view Jay and Beyonce up close and personal throughout.   Jay Z & Beyonce at Sun Life Stadium Not surprisingly, given the film theme, the opening track was “03 Bonnie and Clyde.” But don’t expect that more down and dirty feel of the original 2002 Jay-Z video featuring Beyonce.  Everything about “On the Run” is amped up and glammed up, beginning with Beyonce, who looked fabulous in a mesh leotard with a mesh hoodie over her face, and backed by a jaw-dropping eight-dancer troupe.“03 Bonnie and Clyde” then cleverly segued into “Crazy In Love” (originally by Beyoncé feat. Jay Z from the same time period). Then, the subtlest of interludes sung by Beyoncé served to cede the stage to Jay Z with “Tom Ford.”   Alternating in the sparse, almost industrial-looking stage, Beyoncé and Jay-Z proceeded to take us on a journey of fashion, high-level performance and music, always returning to the central theme of love—challenged, perhaps, but finally standing strong. And it was all about the Carters. There were no guest acts and no visible band, save for a rare appearance here or there from an instrument or back-up singer. Jay-Z managed to power through his arsenal of hits—from “Ni**as in Paris” to “Clique” to “99 Problems” and “It’s a Hard Knock Life”--forcefully and alone, without any props except the screen behind him. Beyoncé, meanwhile, made every one of her songs a visual experience, each featuring new outfits (what an impressive array of leotards and catsuits that woman has!) and choreography.   The high points, unsurprisingly, were the duets, particularly “Holy Grail” and the ending “Young Forever,” and songs like “Haunted,” where Beyoncé allowed herself to be alone onstage, truly showcasing not only her vocal prowess but her ability to connect as a singer and not just as a striking personality. There were also stabs at feminism and female empowering messages, including brand new“Pretty Hurts,” which deals with society’s demands on the way women look and what women are willing to do to achieve those demands. But, given the way Beyoncé looks and her status as a sex symbol, this is a difficult message to get across in this particular setting.  It all built up to a grand finale which, surprisingly wasn’t all about guns and death as with the original Bonnie and Clyde, but love and family. “We celebrate love tonight,” said Jay-Z as he embraced his wife onstage, squashing any of the tabloid notions of break-up that have circulated lately. Then, the couple sang the rousing “Young Forever” before turning their backs to the audience to sing at the screen, which showed images of family life centering on the newest addition, daughter “Blue Ivy,” who they serenaded with “Halo.” Clearly the idea was to show the real Mr. and Mrs. Carter. But of course, we know that they aren’t like you or me.  Complete Set List “’03 Bonnie & Clyde” "Show Me What You Got" “Upgrade U” “Crazy in Love” “Show Me What You Got” “Diamonds are Forever” “N***as” in Paris” “Tom Ford” “Run the World” “***Flawless” “Yonce” "Jigga That N***a" "Dirt Off Your Shoulder” “Big Pimpin’” “Ring the Alarm” “On to the Next One” “Clique” “Diva” “Baby Boy” “U Don’t Know” “Ghost”/”Haunted” “No Church in the Wild” “Drunk in Love” “Public Service Announcement” “Why Don’t You Love Me” “Holy Grail” “Fuckwithmeyouknowigotit” “Beach Is Better” “Partition” “99 Problems” “If I Were a Boy” “Ex Factor” (Lauryn Hill cover) “Song Cry” “Resentment” “Love on Top” “Izzo (H.O.V.A.) “I Just Wanna Love U (Give it 2 Me)” “Single Ladies” “Hard Knock Life” “Pretty Hurts” “Part II (On the Run)” “Forever Young” “Halo” “Lift Off”
