The Weekend. Although Illangelo did not produce the single 'Take Care' Jamie XX did, Keys new song sounds very familiar.
A few of the lyrics from the song, “Who wants to love somebody like me? We all have our issues, our challenges. We are all kind of messed up and that’s all right. In fact, that’s what helps us understand each other. To me, that is what’s so beautiful.”

We are loving Iggy Azalea spirit and her look. Through all the drama with her career, fiancé cheating allegations and so much more, she's still on Twitter responding to her fans and staying positive. She stepped out at the iHeart Radio Music Awards yesterday, still wearing her engagement ring and performed her new song 'Team.' The powerful track is amazing. Azalea message in the new single 'Team' is amazing for those being bullied and just going through it in life. The hook "Baby I Got Me" is also a very powerful statement because you should always be your number one fan and if you have to be your own team, so be it.
People will always have something to say, good or bad. Believe in yourself regardless. We are all for people going after their dreams and achieving. The hate against Azalea success as a White rapper, was so much that she said in an interview earlier, she wanted to end her life. We are glad that she did not. Welcome back Iggy Azalea. Enjoy her live performance below. Due to the way how the first video ended, watch the full ending in the second video below
