Written by on June 25, 2024

A Boogie wit Da Hoodie has earned his first-ever Diamond certification with “Drowning” featuring Kodak Black, which has successfully sold 10 million copies. He was presented with a plaque during his sold-out hometown show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on Monday. He brought 50 Cent, Fabolous, Cash Cobain, Mary J. Blige and more artists onstage to perform.

— Ready, Set, Love! Gunna is considering adding a few love songs to his new album. “I might do this love album,” he told Spotify’s A Day In The Life. “Not all love songs but just a pocket of songs that’s more intimate,” Gunna clarified. “I think that’s going to be the next album for me.”

–Speaking of albums, Metro Boomin may release just one more on streaming services. He explained why via a shared tweet that read, “A fan needs to stream an artist’s music 20 times a day for a whole year for that artist to make $25 from a fan.”

Toni Braxton has added more dates to her Love & Laughter tour with Cedric the Entertainer. The six new dates at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas are: Aug. 9 and Aug. 10, Oct. 18 and Oct. 19, and Dec. 20 and Dec. 21. Tickets for the added shows will go on sale Wednesday at 10 a.m. PT.

— Rapper Julio Foolio, born Charles Jones, has died at age 26. WTVG reports he was killed in a shooting Sunday in Tampa, Florida, where he’d gone to celebrate his birthday. A law firm representing Julio says he was ambushed following his involvement in an accident that took place in his hotel’s parking lot. He was known for his song “Voo Doo.”
