Beyonce’s single “Break My Soul” skyrockets to NO.1 on the BILLBOARD Hot 100, and the album “Renaissance” debuts at NO. 1 on BILLBOARD 200! Congratulations Queen Bey!!!
Beyonce also collaborated with Madonna for “The Queens Remix.”
For the first time, Beyoncé and Madonna have teamed up for “The Queens Remix ”of Beyonce’s hit single, “Break My Soul.” The song has been taken up a notch with the intro of Madonna’s 1990 hit “Vogue.”
What’s very impressive about the track is that Bey doesn’t mind sharing the spotlight. Yonce pays homage to some of her favorite female artists in a similar fashion that Madonna did in Vogue. Some of the ladies she recognized include Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Betty Davis, Solange Knowles, Lizzo, and Kelly Rowland among others. She also gave love to those who have come after her, such as Chloe x Halle, Rihanna, and that late and great Aaliyah.

“Tryna turn the time back / Keep it as a friendship, we already tried that / When you gonna face it? / We’re on the other side / Know too much already/Don’t wanna fake it, fake it.”

R&B Soul Duo Ruff Endz shares a video for their new single, “Congratulations.”
R&B duo Ruff Endz is sharing their music video, “Congratulations,” and it combines classic R&B with modern R&B, the best of both worlds.
“Congratulations,” is the latest offering from the group’s recently released 5th studio album, “REBIRTH”. The single was written by Ruff Endz and produced by David Chance.
The song itself it’s a vibe and talks about a breakup, but in a positive way. Both parties are moving on and finding happiness.
“The inspiration behind the song was to write a break-up song that left both people empowered instead of the usual break-up song where the couple hates each other,” mentions David Chance. “We hope that this song brings a more peaceful approach to a breakup,” adds Dante Jordan.
The video opens up with a man showing up at his former girlfriend’s house to get the rest of his belongings. But, when she gives him his things, her new man comes to the door as well. The old boyfriend congratulates the couple and tells the new boyfriend he’s lucky to have her and to take good care of her.
The duo makes their debut in the video singing in a dark room while flashbacks of the old couple, fast-forwarding to the duo with their new partners. Towards the end of the video, the former boyfriend goes from congratulating the couple to trying to crash the couple’s wedding. He is escorted out and returns to his current girlfriend.
Ruff Endz still has a knack for writing for what everyone may be feeling.
