Off their new No. 1 album CULTURE II, “Stir Fry” was a clear standout off the Migos’ 24-track double LP. The Atlanta group are now teaming up with Buzzfeed’s Tasty food channel to show their chef work in the kitchen. In a video released online, Takeoff, Quavo and Offset cook up some stir fry for the viewers. In between tossing vegetables and frying bacon, chicken, egg, the rap trio take time to flash their expensive jewelry in between.

Music is a huge part of the cooking and kitchen experience, so while Migos and Tasty may sound like an unexpected collaboration, it really is the perfect fit,” Tasty general manager Ashley McCollum tells Billboard. “The guys were incredible to work with and we feel the final product is a successful fusion of our two brands. There’s a huge opportunity for Tasty within the music industry, this is just the beginning. And hopefully, we made everyone hungry for a little stir fry.” Watch Migos work the kitchen below and catch them on SNL on March 3.

alessia-cara

Like every year, the annual Grammy Awards spark debates over victories and artist’s that were snubbed. Alessia Cara, who won ‘Best New Artist’ at the 2018 GRAMMYs on Sunday night (Jan. 28), faced backlash for her victory. The Canadian singer beat out fellow nominees Lil’ Uzi Vert, SZA, Khalid and Julia Michaels, all having a highly-successful breakout year in 2017. While Cara collaborated with Logic and Zedd on big records last year, her breakout smash-hit “Here” and Know It All debut album dropped in 2015. The 21-year-old took to Instagram a day after the GRAMMYs, to address the backlash.

I didn’t log onto Grammy.com and submit myself. that’s not how it works,” said Cara. “I didn’t ask to be submitted either because there are other artists that deserve the acknowledgment. but I was nominated and won and I am not going to be upset about something I’ve wanted since I was kid, not to mention have worked really hard for. I meant everything I said about everyone deserving the same shot. There is a big issue in the industry that perpetuates the idea that an artist’s talent and hard work should take a back seat to popularity and numbers.”

And like most Berner projects, it boasts an all-star supporting cast that includes Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, The Game, Jeremih, E-40, Devin The Dude, Trey Songz and more. Perhaps the most exciting collaboration on the album, though, is “Loose Lips,” which features G.O.O.D. Music boss Pusha T and Griselda Records goon Conway. While Berner supplies a smooth flow and Fresh handles hook duty, King Push and The Machine definitely bring the bars on this one. Listen out for those clicks on the connection.

New York-via-Paris rapper Salomon Faye, who’s previously worked with RATKING and Hodgy Beats, nabs a guest spot from J. Cole on his latest single, “Live and Learn.” Unfortunately, Cole doesn’t spit any new bars here, but he does bolster this soulful cut with a soothing hook that speaks to his own anti-celebrity M.O.: “Cause I’ve been living way too long in the right of the wrong, I’m as small as a fly with the shit that I’m on / So get gone, get lost, I don’t wanna be found, you won’t see me if you’re looking around.”

“Live and Learn” is taken from Salomon Faye’s upcoming King Salomon EP, dropping November 23.
