NEW VIDEO: HOW YA DOIN’ - LITTLE MIX FEAT. MISSY ELLIOTT (WORLDWIDE)

What a cute and colorful video! I’m watching these chicks. I love how the U.K. artists are crossing over stateside with some pretty cool records. I mean, they have Missy on this joint AND in the video! Not too shabby. The track is from their debut album 'DNA'.  Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall were the first group contestant to win the U.K. version of 'The X-Factor' in 2011. Their current single "Wings" has already sold 97K downloads according t Nielsen Soundscan. Will these girls be International stars? I guess we have to keep watching to see! xo @rozOonTheGo

Rihanna, Billy Joel and More at Odds With Pandora Over Compensation:

Group of 125 musicians sign letter opposing ‘Internet Radio Fairness Act.’

Billy Joel, Rihanna and Missy Elliott are among 125 musicians who have signed an open letter opposing Pandora Media Inc.’s attempts to change the way artists are compensated, Reuters reports. The group says the “Internet Radio Fairness Act” would cut royalties that artists receive from plays online by 85 percent. Pandora has been lobbying legislators in Congress to pass the bill.

"Why is the company asking Congress once again to step in and gut the royalties that thousands of musicians rely upon? That’s not fair and that’s not how partners work together," reads the letter, released by musicFirst, a coalition of artists and business people; and SoundExchange, a non-profit that collects royalties on behalf of musicians. The letter will be published in this week’s issue of Billboard.

Pandora’s unhappiness also stems from their success – more customers and more plays means the company must pay more in overall licensing and rights fees to stream the music. Pandora and other music services, including Clear Channel Communications, are pushing for the Internet Radio Fairness Act, arguing that other content providers, such as cable and satellite, pay different rates for rights.

Spotted @ RollingStone 

Having worked in the Music Industry for over 10 years I’m all for Artists’ rights! I’m on the road and in the recording studio’s with them and I see the creativity and grueling hours that goes into making a record; they should be properly compensated! Pandora, your offering a great service but compensate the artist’s properly; without their music there would be NO YOU! xo @RozOonTheGo

Blackground Clarifies Rumors Of AALIYAH Posthumous Album:

Following publication of this article, Blackground reached out to Billboard.biz to officially confirm that Drake and Noah ‘40’ Shebib will be co-executive producing the album alongside Blackground. The story has been changed to reflect the update. 

Last week, a report claimed that a posthumous Aaliyah album was in the works and that Drake would executive produce the project. Additionally, the Young Money rapper was supposedly set to feature the late singer, who passed in August 2001, on his latest single. 

Instead, this past Sunday (August 5th), Blackground released Aaliyah’s “Enough Said” featuring Drake to Soundcloud. The ghostly cut touted previously unheard vocals, a smoldering beat from producer Noah “40” Shebib and a verse from Drake. Three hours after it was posted, the song racked up more than 100,000 clicks. As of press time, it has more than 620,000 listens. 

The song ignited debates about the possible existence of a new Aaliyah LP. Many fans speculated that Aaliyah collaborators Timbaland and Missy Elliott would not be involved with the project. Some criticized the fact that Drake, who has continuously expressed his love for her music, would oversee an album when he had never actually met her. Aaliyah’s brother Rashad Haughton posted an official statement on Facebook that her immediate family will not support this project, which Drake later countered by claiming that “everybody from her family to her old management and label” were behind the record. Billboard.biz reached out to Haughton but had not received a response as of press time.

EXCERPTS FROM A RECENT EVE INTERVIEW:
On what she feels as though she, Lil Kim and Missy Elliot will bring back to the rap game:
It’s kind of a good look for us [Missy & Kim] to all come out at the same time because we do really like each other and support each other. I feel like, I always represented — I feel like I am a regular chick that got a dope job. I got lucky. I represent the around the way chicks. I feel like right now in music, with Nicki out, she’s not representing all females. With me coming out and Nicki coming out, she represents a certain type of chick and with Kim coming out, she represents a certain type of chick that may feel like they don’t have a certain voice that’s speaking for them and that represents them.
On female rappers she is feeling:
I like Azealia Banks. I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay and I think that’s cute. I’m not really into the Iggy Azalea chick. I can’t really f-ck with her music, but her look is crazy. I just can’t believe it (her music).
On which female emcees she would do a record with:
I would definitely have to get Missy. I would definitely have to do Kim because I never got to do a record with Kim. Azealia Banks, I like her. A lot of people want me to hate on Nicki and say crazy things about her. I ain’t got nothing to say about her. Until somebody names me by name, then I don’t feel like nobody is talking about me. I wouldn’t have a problem putting her on a record just because … ‘why not’. I try to be nice.

MONICA Is Ready To Bring ‘NEW LIFE’:

always wanted to have that ‘Waiting to Exhale’ moment,” veteran R&B songstress Monica says. Specifically, she’s referring to the giddy experience of blowing up a car on the set of the video for her current single, “It All Belongs to Me.” The Rico Love-produced song — a delicately sneering duet with longtime contemporary Brandy, which finds the pair uniting to kick out a philandering man — would’ve been right at home playing during the credits of the 1995 romantic film.

The event track is a reunion for the former rivals, who earned record-breaking global acclaim in 1998 with their Grammy Award-winning No. 1 collaboration, “The Boy Is Mine.” But despite the jilted-lover’s revenge fantasy, Monica insists that her latest album, “New Life,” is fueled by a less high-drama inspiration.

"Love happened," Monica says of "New Life’s" optimistic theme, a reference to her recent marriage to NBA player Shannon Brown. "I was comfortable with spending time by myself and just enjoying my two sons. I assumed it would be that way for a long time. But I pretty much allowed God’s will to be done and not try to control everything for a change. And that’s when I met my husband. This album represents some of the best things that have happened to me in my life."

The three new songs do not yet have announced titles, although two Perry tracks, "Dressing Up" and "Part of Me," surfaced online last month before being hastily removed.

The MISSY ELLIOTT + TIMBALAND ‘MOVEMENT’:

Missy Elliott and Timbaland will both launch new albums this summer, Timbaland told MTV News.

"Me and Missy are both coming out with our albums at the same time, and it will be in June," he said. "Right now, we’re just preparing to get both our videos, our first singles shot at the same time. We want to do it as a movement."

While Timbaland has stayed prominent in recent years with solo efforts such as “Shock Value II,” Elliott hasn’t released an album since 2005’s “The Cookbook.”

In the interim, she revealed that she’d been diagnosed with Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disorder.

"I’m 30 pounds lighter because I’ve been exercising." the MC told People last year. "My thyroid is functioning, so I haven’t had to take medication in about nine months. [But] you live with it for the rest of your life."

The dual album release is the latest collaboration in the duo’s lengthy musical relationship, which has spawned such hits as “Get Ur Freak On” and Aaliyah’s “I Care 4 U.”

"People always ask if we’re still working together, and the answer is we will always work together," Elliott told Billboard in a previous interview about the new album, then titled “Block Party.” “He’s always going to be involved, even if it is just on one record. That’s my brother. I respect and honor what he says.”

Missy Elliott Tells Her Story

Missy Elliott has opened up about her troubled past of poverty and childhood sexual abuse.

In VH1’s latest ‘Behind the Music' documentary which debuted Wednesday, the highly accomplished and celebrated female rapper, who celebrates her 40th birthday Friday, reveals she grew up in dismal state of poverty in Portsmouth, Virginia. “I remember having mice in the house and my father taking some newspaper and beating me because mice was running on me while I was asleep,” she revealed.

Missy’s mom Patricia Elliott adds, “We didn’t have running water … We were going in a pot that sat by her bed, because we didn’t have a bathroom.”

Missy also shared the shocking story of sexual abuse at the hands of her 16-year-old cousin when she was only 8. She recalls, “Each day he wanted me to come to the house after school. It became sexual, which, for me at eight years old, I had no clue what that was, but I knew something was wrong.”

"Being molested … it don’t disappear. You remember it as if it was yesterday," Missy adds. The rapper explains the abuse took place over the course of a year, but that she never told anyone at the time.

She also talks about witnessing the abuse of her mother at the hands of her father and her recently revealed Graves’ disease diagnosis — an incurable autoimmune disorder, which Missy had been keeping mum about since 2008.
