“Woman On Top” Interview: Jazmine Sullivan


Shedding more light on her recent abusive relationship, Jazmine Sullivan spoke with me this week about how she eerily predicted the future with her track “Call Me Guilty” on her first album, the inspiration behind her new album Reality Show and hot topic tracks like “Mascara,” if she ever “turns up” (make sure you send her a Long Island Iced Tea if you see her in the club!), overcoming paralyzing fear as an artist and what her hopes for 2015 are.

Jazmine’s new album Reality Show is out now.

Snootie Wild Reflects On His Year Of Success, Talks “Cuffing Season” & More


Snootie Wild was lying to us when he brashly sang all he knows is “Yayo.”

The 29-year-old, born LePreston Porter, knows a whole lot more than the lifestyle he used to lead. One of Billboard’s current favorite “Emerging Artists,” Snootie is now celebrating the completion of his first year as a successful artist. We had a great chat to celebrate his Go Mode EP covering his life as a new star, how he’s handling fame, being a ladies man and more.

A New Era: DASH Radio Platform Launches Today


DASH Radio is here and ready to change the way you listen to radio forever.

The brainchild of my long time friend DJ Skee, DASH offers up everything you love about radio: top-rated DJs and hosts, free to air via the official website and app, tons of diverse channels to choose from and absolutely no commercials.

“Radio was the first social network, the first time people really listened together,” Skee tells Billboard today. “And we want to bring that feeling back, but with more freedom than what FM and satellite can offer. Digital radio today is not real radio — it’s like making a mixtape for your friends. There’s still a time where you just want to listen to curated radio, and we want to be that option.”

My weekly show, “International Affair With Boss Lady”, officially launches tonight on DASH’s “The Cut” channel at 10pm ET / 7pm ET. With exciting segments like “Sound & Style,” “Woman On Top” (with first guest Brianna Perry from Oxygen’s Sisterhood Of Hip Hop) and “Change The Game” (with first guest New Zealand’s new pop sensation Janine & The Mixtape), “International Affair” looks set to be one of my proudest achievements to date.
