Sean Paul received a plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling over 26 million records.
The “Cheap Thrills” deejay is one of the most commercially successful artists in dancehall history and last month he again reminded his comrades at home in Jamaica and his fans globally why he will go down in history as one of the greatest. Sean Paul also received platinum plaques for his 2003 mega-hit single “Get Busy” and his 2005 chart-topper “We Be Burning.” He also received a plaque for his single “Temperature” which has been certified three times platinum. Overall, SP has sold over 26 million records over his career.
Aside from Sean Paul, only five other Jamaican artists have platinum certification in the United States, they are Shaggy, OMI, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Cherine Anderson, and Ini Kamoze. Sean Paul was the biggest comeback story in music last year when he earned a Billboard Hot 100 single with “Cheap Thrills” with Sia. He also scored another Billboard hit this year with “Rockabye.”
Sean Paul recently signed a new deal with Island Records and is currently working on his new album while he toured with fellow dancehall star Chi Ching Ching.
One-half of Rae Sremmurd, Slim Jxmmi, has confirmed that he is about to be a father.
The Mississippi MC made the announcement on Twitter over the weekend. “I have a child on the way,” Jxmmi tweeted. One fan trolled him using an old photo of the rapper wearing a T-Shirt with the message, “I Wear Condoms.” Seems like he wasn’t taking his own advice and now he will likely pay child support for 18 years.
Rae Sremmurd is currently working on their new album SremmLife 3, due later this year. There were some talks over the summer that the group is splitting up, but Slim Jxmmi shot down those rumors recently when he told Billboard that it’s “fake news.” His brother Swae Lee has one of the biggest singles in the world right now “Unforgettable” with French Montana. The song peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has since been certified double platinum.
The pair says that currently have over two dozen songs already recorded for the upcoming album. They are currently going through the process of narrowing down the songs for the project. They confirmed that they want to have the album ready within the next three months, which should be by the end of the year.

Black Twitter can be brutal and almost every celebrity on Twitter is aware of that. Cardi B is celebrating all day today after “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” climbs to the number one spot on Billboard. Nicki Minaj tweeting her congratulations earlier today and some fans weren’t too happy about that. Some people think that she was showing fake love, but some of her more loyal fans think that she is genuinely happy for Bardi.
“Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it,” the Young Money rapper tweeted. Some fans started trolling her for the tweet and some of the attacks get pretty mean and personal. “Why you on here congratulating Cardi when you done know that your fake azz don’t like her,” one fan wrote.” She came in the game and got a number one before you and we all know that your hating right now so quit with this fake sh*t.”
Take a look at some of the comments she has been getting on Instagram from trolls.
Despite the backlash from some fans, some of her supporters, aka Barbz, supported her and were happy that she offer some kind words to her fellow Queens rapper. Some fans even ask for a Nicki Minaj remix for “Bodak Yellow.”
Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it??? @iamcardib

Tons of proof on Twitter that the majority of y'all wanted Cardi to win so you can say Nicki Minaj lost. Pathetic & entirely laughable!

STOP comparing Cardi B to Nicki Minaj thank you. They're their own person, stop trying to pin them against each other.

Fans didn’t treat Post Malone like the rockstar that he is when he stage dived at his concert over the weekend because no one caught him.
Fortunately for the “Rockstar” rapper he didn’t break any bones and continued rapping while on the floor. In the video clip below, you can see Post Malone on stage turning up in St. Louis. He then ran and stage dived into the crowd but everyone moved, absolutely no one didn’t even attempted to catch him. It was one of that moment where all you can do is say ouch and then laugh after you realize that he is okay.
Malone tweeted about it on Sunday while making fun of himself saying that he wish he had Lil Uzi Vert’s body. “Felt like jack black in school of rock tonight when i staged dived and nobody caught my fat as. wish i had lil uzi body,” he wrote. Someone who was close to the front row captured the whole thing on camera. Post Malone is currently having the time of his life with his new single “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage climbed to number two on Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. He also broke the single week Apple Music streaming record.
Perhaps this fan who was video the whole thing just got himself one of those new iPhone X with glass casing and did not want to test how drop proof it is.
felt like jack black in school of rock tonight when i staged dived and nobody caught my fat ass. wish i had lil uzi body

Ishawna recovered her Mercedes-Benz over the weekend after cops seized the luxury vehicle.
In the midst of her heated beef with Danielle D.I., the “Equal Rights” singer was left embarrassed last week Thursday when cops impounded her Benz for lack of insurance and registration. She was also slapped with a $10,000 ticket. Seems all of that is now water under the bridge for the dancehall diva since she is back on the road with insurance and proper documentation we hope. Some sources say that she doesn’t have the title for the car has been driving around without proper documentation.
The car was a gift to Ishawna by Downsound Records boss Joe Bogdanovich in 2015. She has since parted ways with the label but still has the car so there were a lot of chatters that the vehicle may not be registered in her name. Ishawna has been having an eventful year in dancehall with her controversial single “Equal Rights” getting her a lot of attention. The sexually charged single won her some new fans but also earned her some enemies.
She has been locked in a bitter feud with fellow female dancehall star Danielle D.I. over the last few weeks. Both sides have already delivered two diss tracks and now fans are watching to see who will blink first.
