Drake took to Instagram to remember Redway, posting two different tributes.

1989 is now officially the fastest-selling album in over 10 years!
The album that gave us Shake It Off, Blank Space, and our fave Style has sold more that 5 million units in just 36 weeks!
That's the quickest since Usher went quintuple platinum in 19 weeks with 2004's Confessions.
And to think, Taylor's record label actually didn't want her to release it!

Nina Simone's classic song Feeling Good has been covered too many times to count.
Whether by hopeful reality competition contestants, or celebs who've already made names for themselves, many of these renditions have been great. But none of them have ever really been able to capture the same tone and feeling of the late great singer.
That is, until Lauryn Hill.
The 40-year-old musician covered the iconic track as a part of an upcoming tribute album entitled Nina Revisited.
Her voice just glides effortlessly over the notes, but the emotion in her words is totally tangible! And when she lets loose with the riffs, you can really tell the feeling is genuine, rather than just an effort to sound pretty or precisely mimic Nina's notes.
Ch-ch-check out her FAB version (below)!
History repeats itself… and by "history," we mean formulaic pop music!
On Thursday, Bieber and his mentor were reunited over a $10 million copyright infringement lawsuit over their 2010 song Somebody to Love!
The lawsuit was filed in 2013 by artist Devin Copeland (who performs by the name De Rico) and songwriter Mareio Oberton, who claimed they wrote the track back in 2008. Allegedly, Usher heard Copeland's music and showed interest in working with him, but then lifted the song with Bieber afterwards, resulting in a new track.
A district judge tossed out the case originally, ruling that:
We're blown away!
And no, we're not talking about the performance the Golden State Warriors put on to win the NBA championship!
Last night, ahead of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, we got a different kind of special treat for the National Anthem.
No, it didn't come from the likes of a traditional superstar performer like Rascal Flatts or Usher, who opened at previous games, but instead the incredible performance (below) came from a girl by the name of Marlana VanHoose.
Marlana is a different kind of star because the 19-year-old Kentucky native is not only blind but also has cerebral palsy. A few weeks after she was born, doctors did not expect her to live past one year.
Instead, Marlana stands as a shining example of fighting for survival and beating the odds! Not only that, but she's got a helluva voice too!
Ch-ch-check out her AH-Mazing performance as she sings the National Anthem (below)!
Does that make him crazy? Probably.
We're a little surprised that CeeLo will be back on NBC's hit competition show, since his controversial rape comments last year got him in some serious hot water.
Not to mention his resignation from the show seemed pretty final.
But who knows?

Well, it's official!
Today, some of the biggest titans of the music industry have been gathered by Jay Z to celebrate the re-launch of Tidal — the streaming service that's supposed to change the way we listen to music!!
Tidal will offer CD-quality audio and video but uses no free ad-supported service. The streaming service will offer monthly subscriptions — $19.95 for high quality streaming and $9.95 for standard quality.
In an interview with Billboard, Jay explained that the goal of Tidal was to produce a streaming service that appropriately compensated the artist. The rapper had this to say on if the artists would be making more money on Tidal than on Spotify:
Get ready, music lovers! Something HUGE is coming our way!
For those of you who may not know, Jay Z is getting ready to launch his new music streaming service called TIDAL, and it looks like Hova is trying to build up the hype with a big announcement!
But he's not alone! In fact, it looks like he and Beyoncé called up EVERYONE in the business!
So what exactly is this big announcement they're all waiting for? We guess we'll just have to wait and find out!
Ch-ch-check out the teaser (below)!
