Jill Scott’s 'Woman' Is A Triumph For R&B

8/4/2015 8:47am EDT
Jill Scott Makes It Two Consecutive No. 1 Albums On Billboard
R&B has triumphed atop the Billboard 200 for the second time this year! Is it a total change of pace for commercially ailing genre? Jill Scott follows her first #1 album, 2011’s Light Of The Sun with a second one with Woman. Woman didn’t match the higher-flying sales of Light Of The Sun, but Scott’s first album in four years certainly has performed better than most of her contemporaries’ R&B efforts. 62,000 units is by no means “the second coming,” but it’s respectable considering the number of albums that have tanked this year (yeah you Jamie Foxx and Ciara).

Jill Scott wasn’t the sol...

Cilla Black, British Singer & TV Host Dies At 72, Stroke Likely
British TV star Cilla Black died at her home in Marbella, Spain, on Saturday. She was 72.

The TV host's body was discovered by her son Robert, who had to break down her bedroom door after she had gone for a nap and didn't respond when he went to wake her. He found her body on a terrace adjacent to her bedroom, and after an inconclusive autopsy investigators believe the extreme temperature change in going from her air conditioned bedroom to the warm solarium may have caused her to get dizzy and fall, according to the London Evening Standard.

He can't remember a single thing about the accident. "He's been told numerous times what happened, but he keeps forgetting," TMZ adds.

Here's what originally went down, according to Fox News. On Saturday, Dave was racing in a drag race when his car smashed into a wall, almost as soon as the race started. Ambulances carted him off quick and luckily his injuries weren't as severe as they could have been. A concussion,...

Ben Higgins and Tenley Molzahn
Is Bachelor hopeful, Ben H. dating former Bachelor star Tenley Molzahn?

According to E! News, a new photo of Ben and Tenley seems to suggest that the two have become friends -- at the very least -- and that could mean that Ben Higgins is not going to be the next Bachelor. The photo popped up on Ben Z's Instagram account, and Ben had his arm around Tenley, who is on this season of Bachelor In Paradise, looking for love. (Of course Tenley has already finished filming, which is why she's posting pictures on social media).
