After a pushed back world premiere, today 106 and Park, dropped Beyoncé’s official visual for Party, the single that now features Roc-Nation newbie, J. Cole. 


Directed by Beyoncé, the official visual for the Kanye West produced track was shot in New Jersey this past August and is packed with vivid, colorful images. I’ve had an appreciation for pinwheels since childhood! LOL!!

So who does Beyoncé bring to her back yard BBQ/block party? We see Auntie-to-be Solange Knowles made it to the party along with former Destiny’s Child band mate, Kelly Rowland…

…and J. Cole stands in for Andre 3000 on the remixed single and video. Politics.

Doesn’t this one just make you want to Party?!


Beyonce feat. J. ColeAs word hits the net that Beyoncé will premiere the “Official Visual” for her single Party on BETs 106 & Park this coming Tuesday, October 25, a remix of the song featuring Roc Nation’s J. Cole makes its way to the surface as well!

On the album, 4, Party features half of the Outkast duo, Andre 3000. I understand he will not make a cameo appearance in the video, he’s being replaced with J. Cole! Based on photos that were taken at the shoot in August, we know Bey’s former Destiny’s Child member and sister friend, Kelly Rowland is featured.

Kanye West hasn’t been removed the track, his voice is still ever-present. G.O.O.D. Music! One of my favorite singles from her newest album…

Listening to this makes me want to Party!

"Therefore I like to thank God and Ice Cube for Friday, ‘cause La da di…." What?!

BET announced their nominees for the 2011 Hip Hop Awards which will be hosted by Comedian Mike Epps in Atlanta on Saturday, October 1, and air on the network’s channel, October 11 at 8 PM.

Young Money’s own Lil’ Wayne received a record-breaking 18 nominations on the heels of the release of his newest album, The Carter IV, which has already sold an estimated 1,000,000 copies. Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross follow in nominations; West and Wiz gaining nine nods each, while Maybach’s Ross received eight.

Although the full artist roster hasn’t been revealed, this year, Meek Mill is planning to join the cypher, which is usually my favorite part of the entire show, depending on who’s performing. One of my favorite from last year had to be GOOD Music’s takeover of the cypher, “…too many Urkels on your team that’s why your Winslow…” I had to post it! ;)
