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!!!

Listen To This: Dance! And Love! And Dance Again!

Filed under: Listen To ThisPitbull

Pitbull is the collab king! And rightfully so! Our fellow Cubano makes everything he raps on THAT MUCH BETTER!

We love him! And we love this song he did with Riz!

Featuring a killer Supremes sample, Dance With Me will put you in the mood to do just that!

We're not sure if RedOne produced this song, but it is very much in keeping with his sound, which we… LOVE!

Lots to love here!

Check out Riz and Mr. Worldwide's Dance With Me (above)!

Rihanna Dominates Billboard's Hot 100 Chart, GaGa's Judas On Its Way Up…

Filed under: RihannaLady GaGaBusiness Blitz

Rihanna's S&M has officially hit the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart!

This achievement marks RiRi's 10th #1 hit on the chart AND given the fact that her first #1 hit on the chart was May 2006's SOS, she's achieved a record of having "the shortest span between a solo artist's first and 10th No. 1s in the chart's 52-year history." Wow!

The only artists who have gained 10 Hot 100 #1's faster than her are the Beatles and the Supremes. Not bad AT ALL!

Finally, RiRi has also become the youngest artist to land 10 #1's in the Hot 100 chart.

As far as potential Hot 100 competition from Lady GaGa is concerned, we'll see what happens there.

GaGa's Judas debuted at #10 on the Hot 100 chart, but it def has the potential to compete with RiRi for next week.

Do U think GaGa's Judas will top the Hot 100 chart next week? Or do U think Rihanna will continue to dominate? OR do U think someone else will take over?
