Proving once again that nothing stops her, Megan Thee Stallion took to the stage for the first time since her recent shooting incident to perform virtually for her fans on Saturday, August 29th. The concert, which was presented by Live Nation, featured Meg dancing and rapping to some of her biggest hits, but the “Savage” rapper didn’t miss an opportunity to raise awareness for the ongoing plight of Black Americans.

Aaliyah’s Estate Moving To Bring Her Music To Streaming Services 

Aaliyah’s music might be finally coming to major streaming services.

Since her untimely death almost two decades ago, Aaliyah continues to impact fans globally with her music and now her estate confirms that they’re in talks to bring her catalogue to all major streaming platforms. The Princess of R&B passed away during a time when streaming music was unheard of. The tragic plane crash, in which she and eight others lost their lives, occurred in 2001 when “Tidal” described a wave, “Spotify” may have been acne treatment, and “Apple” was known for making smartphones and computers. But times have changed, and fans of the late singer have long been hoping that her music collection changes with it and adapts.

While song catalogues from artists who were popular decades ago have been added to streaming platforms to make listening more accessible for the fans, the majority of Aaliyah’s tracks cannot be found. Much of this had to do with the “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number” singer’s uncle and manager, Barry Hankerson, whose Blackground Records owns the rights to Aaliyah’s entire catalogue with the exception her famous debut which R. Kelly produced. It seemed that Hankerson had had a change of heart back in November as he announced on social media that the Grammy nominee’s songs would be hitting Spotify, TIDAL, Apple Music, and Amazon Prime after listening to fans’ pleas. But sadly, no follow-up announcer was ever made until now.

Keke Palmer Reacts To Trey Songz Scandal  

Keke Palmer is trending amid the recent Trey Songz sexual misconduct allegations after an old video of her accusing him of sexual intimidation resurfaces.

Three years ago, when Keke Palmer opened up about being taken advantage of and sexually intimidated by Trey Songz, most fans were not quick to believe her. Though the actress/singer stuck to her story all these years, many people were still not convinced until the accused got caught up in a much larger scandal.

Following Celina Powell and her friend calling out Trey Songz for basically kidnapping them and subjecting them to non-consensual sexual acts, suddenly, people actually believe that the singer did engage in foul behavior. Interestingly enough, when Keke Palmer, a black woman, made mention of her own experience with him in 2017, she was met with backlash and gaslighting.

Break It Down: Deep Breathing - A Practice Guide  

Today on Break it Down, we explore deep breathing with Chartered Counselling Psychologist Dr Tamara Vaughan of Mind Health Psychology;

Deep breathing
The idea around deep breathing exercises is that they help to activate the ‘parasympathetic nervous system’ – this is also known as the ‘rest and digest system’ (i.e. the opposite of the fight or flight) and helps to activate a sense of calm and relaxation within our body. There are a couple of exercises that are helpful:
a. Breathe in for 4, hold for 4, out for 4
b. Breathe in for 4 out for 6
Breaths out should be low and long like you’re breathing out through a straw.
