Solange Knowles’ shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.













In the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, the 27-year-old singer and style star opens up about the types of guys she dated in the past before eventually finding love with video director Alan Ferguson.

"Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while," Knowles said, before dishing on how those earlier relationship missteps have influenced her music. "It's a f*cked-up thing -- without conflict it's a lot harder to write interesting songs."


"In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27," she told the magazine. "Just going through a marriage and a divorce -- which I essentially did by 21 -- will give you an insane amount of perspective on life."

Today, Knowles's relationship with Smith remains as friendly as ever. "We co-parent really well," she said. "I'm able to say, 'I need to finish this album, can you step up and take care of the boy?"

Kelis Talks about cooking and her new album







Kelis Gets a Retro Makeover On Second Single ‘Rumble’





After leading her upcoming Food album with the delicious “Jerk Ribs,” Kelis is already following up with soulful second single, “Rumble.”

The song premiered online about a month ago, but it just got some seriously retro cover art that sees Kelis channelling the Motown divas of the early ’60s.

It’s fitting imagery for the music, which forgoes all the overproduced effects of today’s hipster hits and glossy pop and in favour of a raw vocal delivery and live band.

Refreshing, ain’t it?

However, if Kelis’ sound is a little too old-school for you, then “Rumble” has some killer dance remixes ready to go.

After a phenomenal 2013, Miguel is crafting on a new album to follow up to his classic Kaleidoscope Dream. In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, the crooner shared that he was in the studio with British chanteuse Jessie Ware as they are collaborating on a song. While there are no other details available at the moment, Miguel has been immensely successful with his previous collaborations: "Power Trip," featuring J. Cole, is nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, and "How Many Drinks?,"with Kendrick Lamar, is up for Best R&B Performance at the 2014 GRAMMY Awards.




Miguel's next album is currently slated for release this fall via ByStorm/RCA, and he will spend the next month and a half writing and recording it. Besides Ms. Ware, he hopes to also work with Yasiin Bey, Jack White and Kanye West, as well as friends like J. Cole and Kendrick. Although he's still in the early stages of development, the music has come quickly so far.
