5 Things You Need To Know Today

Good Morning

Another day, another flood of musical information – we’ll refine it to 5 points for you.


1) Chris Brown and Frank Ocean have bust-up, Ocean to press charges.

Chris Brown & Frank Ocean have been clashing on a minor scale for a little while, first coming to light when Chris’s cousins chased down Frank in his car.

Now there has been some alleged fisticuffs outside of LA’s Westlake Studios and Frank Ocean is pressing charges.

This could become interesting for two reasons:

– Brown and Ocean are nominated in the Best Urban Contemporary Album category at the Grammy Awards.
– If Brown is found guilty, he risks having his five-year probation revoked for his assault on Rihanna in 2009.

2) Fleetwood Mac set to tour the UK

“The band are due to embark on a world tour from April of this year, with US dates already in place. However, there are yet to be concrete plans for any shows in the UK announced. Speaking to BBC 6Music, Fleetwood confirmed that the group are heading across the Atlantic, most likely in September or October. “We’re doing a big world tour that starts in April. We’re coming here [the UK] in September, October and maybe a bit longer. We’re doing a lot of work here so we are coming,” he said.” (source: NME)

3) Wavves release new track to stream and reveal up-coming ‘Afraid of Heights’ album art-work.

5) Rick Ross was the target of a drive-by shooting this morning.

Adding more gravitas to the suggestion that it might be wise if he takes a year off. Take it easy Rozay, you’re still the boss (of our hearts).
