no title

Jay Z is having a great 2017 so far.

Not only is Beyoncé's husband getting ready to welcome two new members into the family, but he just scored a historic induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame!

On Wednesday, music legend Nile Rodgers revealed the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame class on CBS This Morning.

The inductees include: Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Berry Gordy, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Robert Lamm, James Pankow and Peter Cetera of Chicago, Max Martin, and Jay — who is the first rapper to receive the honor!

Mr. Carter edged out some serious competition to earn the spot this year, as George Michael, Gloria Estefan, and Madonna were all nominated but didn't make the cut. Maybe next year, Madge!

Like everything in Bey and Jay's life, this prestigious honor is well deserved for the 47-year-old. He holds the record for the solo artist with the most No. 1 albums in the Billboard chart with 13.

Congrats, Hov!

Michael Jackson Makes His Way To Broadway! Motown: The Musical Set To Premiere!

Motown is headed to Broadway this spring!

After being several years in the making, director Charles Randolph-Wright has finally found his perfect cast for Motown: The Musical!

Michael Jackson, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, amongst others, will all be portrayed by actors on the Great White Way, starting March 11th!

12-year-old Raymond Luke Jr. has been cast to play young MJ, and will have the honor — and major pressure — of singing some of the Jackson 5’s greatest hits, like I Want You Back and ABC!

Check out a pic of Raymond (above)!!

Of the actor and his portrayal, Randolph-Wright states:

"Michael Jackson had intensity and a confidence, combined with a naiveté. He was almost hypnotic in his allure. You can't replicate one of a kind, but Raymond has that spirit, that feeling Michael Jackson gave you. He makes you smile."

Wow, those are definitely some big shoes to fill, but we’re sure the rising Broadway star will do just fine in playing the King of Pop!

Take a look at a behind the scenes sneak peak and hear Raymond sing some MJ… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
