Mike Coppola/Getty ImagesAfter Beyonce released her tour-de-force "visual album" Lemonade, which documented the emotional journey of a woman -- presumably she -- cheated on by her husband, the husband's now made his first public commentary on the matter.

Many have wondered how Bey's hubby Jay Z felt about Lemonade.  He even appears in the film, even though it seemingly outs him as a cheater.  E! Online reports Jay's now released a new rap that addresses the subject. Titled "All the Way," it's a collaboration with Fat Joe, Remy Ma, French Montana and Infared.

At the beginning of Jay's verse, he raps, "You know you made it when the fact your marriage made it is worth millions/Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is/Survival of the littlest."

E! notes that the "Lemonade" part of the lyric is a reference to a line in the 1992 Gang Starr track "DWYCK," in which the late MC Guru raps, "Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is/I get more props and stunts than Bruce Willis."

E! adds that Jay uses his verse to refer to Prince, rapping, "Prince left his masters where they safe and sound/We never gonna let the elevator take him down."  That's a reference to a line in Prince's hit "Let's Go Crazy:" "Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?/Oh, no, let's go!"

The song is now streaming exclusively, of course, on Jay Z's platform, Tidal.

ABC/Randy HolmesSnoop Dogg is reviving his Doggy Style Records label, and he’s dropping a new album this summer.

Snoop casually made the announcement during a live Facebook video, saying, “Oh my album? July 1.”

The Long Beach rapper also invited aspiring artists to submit their music for his label. He said, “My goal is to put out 100 singles before August. If you have a hot single… We may do a showcase and have you possibly perform and get you a record deal. The main thing is getting out great music to represent the generation that ain’t got a voice right now.”

Snoop's new album is titled The Return of Doggystyle, which he is calling a sequel to his 1993 debut album, Doggystyle.

Photo by Jeff Kravitz/Getty Images via ABCThe Weeknd was a big winner at the Billboard Awards on Sunday, but after tweeting out his excitement over his big win, the singer ended up apologizing to Usher for not fact-checking his claim.

The Canadian singer, who was nominated 19 times and took home 8 awards, tweeted, “XO we took home 8 ! more than any male artist in history Thank you @billboard.”

Unfortunately for The Weeknd, his information wasn't exactly accurate. Usher’s fans reminded the "Earned It" singer that back in 2004 Usher took home 14 awards.

After the faux pas, The Weeknd  begged Usher's forgiveness, tweeting, "Apologize to the OG @Usher, got excited and spoke to soon."

Foc Kan/WireImagePharrell Williams has relaunched his personal website to cater to his fans.

Williams’ followers can create fan cards in one of five categories -- music, fashion, art/design, TV/film or social good -- and choose their favorite Williams project in the category. Their card will be featured on the homepage.

Williams admits he previously ignored his website, and now his goal is to make it interactive and show his appreciation to everyone who supports him.

“I am nothing without the people who enjoy my work,” he writes in a lengthy Facebook post. “I can't exist without all of you. I can create all day, but if there isn't an audience to co-sign my projects, to acknowledge they're any good, they would just exist in my mind.”

The 11-time Grammy winner emphasizes that fans are the focal point of his website.

“It's a way for me to connect with all of you in a personal way. You are the reason I have a career, and it’s important to me that you're all acknowledged first.”

Williams says after seeing cards from his fans first, viewers will learn about his diversified range of activities.

“It's kind of like a museum, and I hope those new to my world will enjoy learning about all the collaborations I've had the honor of participating in."

ABC/Randy HolmesDJ Khaled is still in awe about opening for Beyonce's on her Formation World Tour, as the self-proclaimed "King of the Snapchat" says working with the singer has been absolutely amazing.

Drake was nominated in eleven categories at last night’s Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, and even though he was in Sin City, he decided to work on his golf swing instead of attending the show at the T-Mobile Arena.

Drizzy won Top Rap Artist, but according to TMZ, he wasn’t present to accept his trophy because he was hitting golf balls on The Strip a few blocks away at the MGM Grand Hotel. He joined friends at the four-level TopGolf sports and entertainment complex which features 108 hitting bays, five bars, two pools and VIP cabanas.

While he was almost shut out at the Billboard Awards, Drake continues to dominate the charts. Views remains number one on the Billboard 200 album chart for the third straight week, and “One Dance’ returns to the top of the Hot 100 replacing Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

Myrna Suarez/WireImage for Parkwood EntertainmentRumors of a Beyonce/Jay Z duo album have been flying for years, and now it appears the album is about to become reality.

The New York Post's Page Six reports that Bey and Jay have completed the album and it will be released “very soon.” Beyonce’s Lemonade led to speculation that their marriage was in trouble, and this joint project may be their response. According to a source, “Jay and Beyoncé were never going to do an interview to address all the questions that came up after Lemonade. It’s more their style to respond through music.”

Queen Bey and Jigga have previously recorded several songs together, including “Drunk in Love” which won two Grammy Awards in 2014 and the 2004 double Grammy winner “Crazy in Love,” as well as “Déjà Vu,” “Upgrade U,” "03 Bonnie & Clyde,” “Hollywood,” “Lift Off,” and “Part II (On the Run).”

The couple also performed together on their 2014 On the Run Tour which grossed more $100 million and spawned an HBO special.

Michael Tullberg/Getty Images for CoachellaLil Wayne isn't quite ready for a truce with his former label Cash Money as the rapper asked a crowd of fans to chant "f*** Cash Money" at a recent festival.

During his performance at the rescheduled MassRoots 420 Rally in Denver, Wayne incited the crowd to curse his former label. In a video that surfaced on May 22, Lil Wayne can be seen telling  the crowd,"F*** the bulls***...and...f*** Cash Money."

Lil Wayne was spotted with his former mentor, Cash Money CEO Birdman, in January at a Miami club. The two were thought to be back on good terms with Birdman announcing to the crowd, "This my motherf****** son and I'ma die for him, I'ma live for him, and I'll motherf****** kill for him, ya heard me? That aint gon' never change. It's YMCMB for life."

Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesSunday's night Billboard Awards Prince tribute by pop star Madonna didn't sit well with BET.  The network is promising viewers they'll do right by the music icon.

Almost directly after Madonna's performance at the Billboard Awards, BET tweeted a promo clip for their own tribute on the upcoming BET Awards. 

"Yeah, We saw that. Don’t worry. We Got You," the promo declared.

The network's response comes in the wake of some negative reaction to Madonna's announced tribute before the performance, including a petition against it that gained nearly 9,000 supporters. Although Madge had a deep friendship with the late singer, Prince fans didn’t think the Material Girl had what it took to properly pay homage to the music legend.

So far, the official plans for BET's Prince tribute has not been revealed. The BET Awards airs Sunday, June 26th.

Image Group LA/ABCCiara is getting the last word after MTV attempted to reignite a past beef between her and pop star Rihanna.

During the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night, MTV send out a tweet, since deleted, saying"Luda, you know Ciara won't say Rihanna's name."

The tweet, which was directed at Billboard Music Awards co-host Ludacris, was in reference to a 2011 Twitter fight between Ciara and Rihanna, which was later resolved. 

The singer and co-host for the evening was apparently annoyed by the network's tweet.  She responded by praising Rihanna's performance.  "Thought She Was Amazing.1 Of The Best Performances Of The Night Don't Understand The Need 2 Go Here. #What'sThePoint?" Ciara asked.

The "My Goodies" singer continued questioning the person tweeting and their experience, writing, "@MTVMusic Furthermore, who's the 'newbee' tweeting on behalf of MTV?"," and "@MTVMusic There's no way someone of experience is posting content like that during a show of this caliber. God Bless #SpreadLove."

MTV has not yet responded to Ciara.

Kevin Mazur/WireImage for NPG Records 2013Prince, who was found unresponsive in an elevator inside his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota in April, may have been dead for hours before his body was discovered, a source confirmed to ABC News.

Minneapolis' Star Tribune first reported that the late singer was likely "dead for at least six hours." A paramedic who responded to the scene told law enforcement, Prince's staff, and others that detail, adds the newspaper.

The music legend's cause of death has not yet been announced, though an autopsy was performed April 22 and results of toxicology tests are expected in the coming weeks.

According to the Midwest Medical Examiner's office, Prince's body was returned to the family after the autopsy was completed.

Still, less than a week after the singer's death, authorities obtained a search warrant for Prince’s Paisley Park estate. The sealed paperwork was filed one day after law enforcement sources told ABC News that prescription drugs had been found in Prince’s possession and at his home.

Sources also told ABC News that investigators are looking into whether Prince died from an overdose and whether a doctor was prescribing him drugs in the weeks beforehand.

Prince's sister Tyka Nelson said in a Facebook post that the family will hold an official memorial in August.

Prince died April 21. He was 57.
