Before kicking off his North American tour this Friday, James Blake appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers as the musical guest last night. After being introduced by Power‘s Omari Hardwick, the UK crooner delivered a stirring performance of “My Willing Heart,” which seems to carry even more emotional weight in live form. The song is off Blake’s latest album, The Colour in Anything.

Let me just preface this by saying Atlanta is the best thing on TV right now. After just a handful of episodes, the show is a huge hit both critically and commercially. In fact, it’s officially the biggest new comedy on cable in three years. So it’s no surprise that FX has wasted little time in securing a future for Donald Glover’s passion project.

the-game-1

The Game is the talk of the rap world. The L.A. rapper, whose 1992 album is arriving next month, has been in the headlines lately with his beef against Meek Mill, Sean Kingston, and Beanie Sigel. The Compton-native stopped by The Wendy Williams Show on Tuesday morning (Sep. 20), where he discussed the new album, squashing his prior issues with 50 Cent, and taking his beef versus Meek Mill “day-by-day.”

The Game also was asked about a song released last month called “The Sauce,” a record where he rapped about sleeping with three Kardashians. “I used to f**k bi**hes that Usher Raymond passed off/ Then I f***ed three Kardashians…hold that thought,” he raps. The 36-year-old reveals the three in question are Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and soon-to-be Kardashian Blac Chyna, who has a child on the way with Rob Kardashian.

Chance the Rapper had a career moment, appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (Sep. 14). The Chicago MC took to the studio stage, tearing it down with a performance of “No Problem” with special guests Lil’ Wayne and 2 Chainz.

ScHoolboy Q’s whole Blank Face LP bangs but one of the standouts has to be the E-40-assisted “Dope Dealer.” It certainly thumps, production wise. Q took the track to the Hollywood stage, performing with 40 Water on Jimmy Kimmel Live and representing for TDE on the mainstream level. As you already know, he was energetic and got the crowd hype, as they all got rowdy to the record.

Donald Glover may not know when his Pharos album’s coming out (he still hasn’t finished it, apparently), but he gave James Corden’s crowd a taste of something new last night. During his appearance on The Late Late Show, ‘Bino took up resident musician Reggie Watts’ offer for a live jam session and performed an improvised song while busting out some silky dance moves. Glover also joined James Corden in a mumbled duet of Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose,” because who can make out those damn lyrics anyway?
