It’s been nearly six years since Jamie Foxx released his R&B banger ‘Blame It’ in 2009, and since then he’s been seemingly concentrating on his acting career.

Now the multitalented artist is back with a new single, ‘Party Ain’t A Party’ featuring 2 Chainz. He picks up right where he left off, singing about having a good time at the club.

“Fresh kicks, fresh cut about to roll out / Pull up on the scene pull a roll out / Shorty in the nipple print shirt, is she happy to see me or is it cold out,” croons Foxx, using Auto-Tune.

Overall, the song could have the potential to be as big as ‘Blame It,’ but an underwhelming 2 Chainz verse could hurt its chances. “I keep her straight like a band too, I keep it straight like 12:30 / I f— over your girl hairdo, if it’s curly I straighten it, if it’s straightened I leave it curly,” he rhymes.

The cut borrows from Queen Pen’s 1997 song, ‘Party Ain’t A Party,’ which earned the rapper a Soul Train Music Award.

Two of the biggest stars in music are teaming up for one epicproject. Beyoncé and Jay Z are reportedly working on a joint album.

Yes, you heard right. According to Dash Radio’s DJ Skee (viaJust Jared), the superstar couple is in the studio recordingall-new music.

While no official announcement has been made, sources close to the Carters tell Skee that the album is set for release in late 2014 or early 2015.

The power duo have collaborated numerous times in the past, but this would mark their first full-length project. Most recently, they scored a hit with “Drunk in Love” for Beyoncé’s self-titled album, while Mrs. Carter appears on “Part II (On the Run)” off Jay’s Magna Carta…Holy Grail.

The news comes after the Carters wrapped their co-headlining “On the Run Tour” in Paris over the weekend. The concert will air this Saturday on HBO.

Some of hip-hop’s biggest A-listers have teamed up for one of the genre’s most powerful collaborations, “Don’t Shoot” an outcry about the controversial police killing of Ferguson teen Michael Brown.

Spearheaded by the Game, the song features 10 additional rappers — Diddy, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, Swizz Beatz, Curren$y, 2 Chainz, Wale, DJ Khaled, Problem, and Fabolous. R&B singers King Pharaoh, Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank (the latter comprising the group TGT) also take part in the all-star statement song.

“Don’t Shoot’s” sentiment is similar to two legendary, all-star, anti-violence hip-hop records, the East Coast’s “Self Destruction” in 1989 and the West Coast’s “We’re All in the Same Gang” in 1990.
