R. Kelly returns with new single 'Share My Love': Hear it here!

While R. Kelly has talked about rolling out dozens more episodes of his much-loved Trapped in the Closet series, his first order of business is his upcoming album Write Me Back, which is scheduled for release in March. This morning, Kels dropped that album’s first single, a creamy slice of seduction called “Share My Love.”

Though his late 2011 single “Shut Up” got back to the business of R. Kelly crazy-talking R&B (you know, like “Real Talk”), his new single “Share My Love” sounds like a logical extension of 2010′s Sam Cooke-inspired Love Letter. With its disco strings and easy-breezy beat, “Share My Love” has more of a mid-period Marvin Gaye vibe to it, which hopefully means that Kels is working his way through R&B history and will eventually end up back at his own career in a few albums or so.

Give “Share My Love” a spin below. READ FULL STORY

Guns N' Roses announce club-tour dates

The lasting images from the peak of Guns N’ Roses’ reign are all epic: The massive stadium crowds, the white leather suits, the entirety of the “November Rain” video.

It’s difficult to consider them as a club band, and yet just like all big bands before them, they had to start somewhere.

In an effort to remind the world that Axl & Co. used to be, uh, smaller, Guns N’ Roses announced that they will play a series of shows at small venues in February. The centerpiece of the run will be a stop at New York’s Webster Hall, which only holds about 1,200 people for rock shows and was the site of a notorious GNR show taped by MTV in 1988.

Back then, the club was called the Ritz, which is what it will be re-christened when Axl and his band of merry men take the stage on Wednesday, Feb. 15.

The rest of the run shakes out like this: Two other New York shows (Roseland Ballroom on Feb. 10 and Terminal 5 on Feb. 12), then shows at the House of Blues in Chicago (Feb. 19), the Fillmore in Silver Spring, Md. (Feb. 23), and the House of Blues in Atlantic City (February 24). Presale tickets go live on Tuesday, Jan. 31, for the New York shows, with the rest of the lot on sale this Wednesday, February 1.

Axl is hardly the first rock giant to book a back-to-the-start run in smaller venues:

Lil Kim's album cover depicts decapitation of Nicki Minaj-like figure

BLACK-FRIDAY-MIXTAPEThe feud between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj just got ugly. Rather, it’s gotten bloody.

The new album cover for Kim’s Black Friday, which has been available for purchase via PayPal since yesterday, leaves little doubt that the pink-wigged head on the floor is an allusion to Kim’s nemesis Nicki Minaj — although no one has confirmed, a.k.a. we can’t prove anything. What we can prove is the following: Cartoon Lil Kim likes swords and leather, cartoon Lil Kim knows how to use swords, and magically, cartoon Lil Kim has the ability to strike a pose before the blood splatter has hit the floor. Fascinating.

Calls to Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj’s camps have not been returned.

While we wait, what do you think of the cover, Mixers? Too far?
