Dennis LeupoldTinashe continues to put in hard work in advance of her forthcoming studio release, Joyride, providing featured vocals on a new song called "All Caught Up." 

The track, produced by electronic duo GTA, showcases the Tinashe's signature seductive vocals over a head-bopping beat.  

"It's different than what people are probably used to hearing from us. It's a bit more melodic and vocal driven, plus it's just sexy. So obviously, Tinashe was the perfect fit for this track. We love her range, and she just killed it," Matt Toth of the duo tells The FADER.

ABC/ Lou RoccoMary J. Blige has a good explanation for singing Bruce Springsteen's "American Skin (41 Shots)" toHillary Clinton.  

The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul recently caught a lot of flack for her interview with the Democratic nominee, featured in a one-minute promotional clip for her upcoming show The 411 with Mary J. Blige, showing the artist serenading Clinton with Springsteen's single.  

The song was written about the 1999 police shooting death of Guinean immigrant Amadou Diallo

"I wanted to incorporate the song in the show because the lyrics resonated with me so deeply and so heavily because of all the shootings and police brutality and I never got a chance to say anything," said Blige, as reported by the New York Daily News.  

"I'm a singer first...so that's the only way I can express myself and...the only way I can get that reaction from [Hillary] is to sing it," she added. 

The vocalist hit back at critics and social media users who denounced Blige after witnessing the video clip in a now deleted tweet that was captured by the Daily News.   

The 411 with Mary J. Blige is set to debut on September 30.

ABC/Randy HolmesFetty Wap and his "Trap Queen" producer, Tony Fadd, are being sued for allegedly stealing the beat to the single without permission, reports TMZ

Danish songwriter Lazar Lakic claims that he bought the rights to a beat then called "Hello" from Fadd in 2014.  In his lawsuit, Lakic alleges that he was "shocked" to hear the "Hello" beat sampled in "Trap Queen."

Lakic also claims that Fadd wanted to buy back the rights to "Hello" in 2015, but was denied. "Trap Queen" went on to become one of Fetty Wap's best singles, climbing to number two  on Billboard's Hot 100 and going four-times platinum.  

Lakic claims that he has not received any credit or money from "Trap Queen" record sales and is "suing for profits." He also is requesting that all copies of "Trap Queen" to be destroyed and that there be no further sales of the track.

Fetty's attorney, Navarro Gray, told TMZ that the rapper bought the beat for "Trap Queen" from Fadd, and so, if Lakic prevails in showing that Fadd did not have the right to sell the beat, he will go after Fadd to recover damages.

Dorothy Hong / Team Epiphany2 Chainz recently got a mouthful of some of the most expensive coffee in the world...made from a very unlikely source.

The rapper's latest episode in his GQ video series titled Most Expensivest S*** took him to meet the founder of Blossom Coffee, Jeremy Kuempel, to taste Kopi Luwak, a $600 per pound coffee made from coffee beans collected from the feces of Indonesian forest animals called civets, also called "toddycats" in English, who have eaten the coffee berries.

The Blossom brewing machine that prepares Kopi Luwak starts at a retail price of $6,000. Chainz also was surprised to find out that one cup of Kopi Luwak sold in a café costs between $20 to $50. 

A long way from sipping Hpnotiq, surely, but 2 Chainz bravely sipped a cup of the most expensivest coffee made from cat poop -- and lived to tell the tale.

Stefanie Keenan/Getty Images for RevlonIs Rachel Roy poking fun at Queen Bey's Beyhive?  

Some may think so, after seeing the fashion designer wearing a blazer covered in bee pendants while on the red carpet for this year's annual Revlon Philanthropic Luncheon in Los Angeles, captured by the U.K's The Mirror. 

Roy previously wore the same blazer in August while posing for cameras on the red carpet for the premiere of Pete's Dragon.  

Last April, the businesswoman was a target of Beyoncé fans who believed Roy had come between Bey and hubby Jay Z, cheating rumors that were fueled by Bey's "Becky with the good hair" lyric from her hit song "Sorry."  

Some of Beyonce's followers concluded that Roy was, indeed, "Becky."
