#NewMusic from Maxwell “We Never Saw It Coming”
Maxwell took to his Instagram account to tease a new song titled, “We Never Saw it Coming.”
This week, the 45-year-old crooner decided to release the slow-burning ballad–in conjunction with Tidal, who will also debut a short film titled, The Glass House. Over the piano-led record, Maxwell croons about being caught-off guard emotionally, as well as being blindsided by relationships.
“As an artist I feel a responsibility to entertain as well as inform,” Maxwell says of the song and short-film via press release. “In the words of the great Nina Simone, ‘it is the duty of the artist to reflect the times.’ If we are to leave the world better than we found it, we all have to come together, unified in love, for our fellow man and this beautiful planet that we all call home.”
#HipHopNews: XXL Announces 2018 Freshman Class, With Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, Trippie Redd & More. Also Hip Hop reacts!
For their 2018 Freshman Class, XXL selected a phalanx of stars for this year's cover, including Lil Pump, Trippie Redd, Smokepurpp, Blocboy JB, YBN Nahmir, WifisFuneral, Ski Mask The Slump God, J.I.D. and Stefflon Don.
Unlike past covers, XXL only included nine MCs this year after Lil Skies -- who was voted to be the 10th member through a fan vote -- declined his invite for the cover after initially accepting, the publication reports.
The actual issue for the Freshman Class will drop July 3. Then, all nine rappers will hit the stage at Terminal 5 in New York City on July 11 for the annual XXL Freshman Show. Don't fret: XXL will uphold their tradition and continue to show love to the West Coast with an LA show July 19 at The Novo.

The 2018 Freshman Class is comprised of Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Pump, Smokepurpp, J.I.D, Stefflon Don, BlocBoy JB, YBN Nahmir, Wifisfuneral and Trippie Redd. Lil Skies was awarded the 10th spot but refused to attend the cover shoot.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are engaged after weeks of dating
Young love! Whirlwind romance! A surprise engagement!
Whatever you call it, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are reportedly betrothed after just weeks of dating. People and Us Weekly say that the No Tears Left to Cry singer and Saturday Night Live comedian are getting ready to marry after becoming an Instagram-official couple in May. The stars, both 24, haven't explicitly shared the news, but Grande coyly acknowledged the engagement speculation on social media Monday.
She tweeted that "we need to talk" to friend and fellow pop star Camila Cabella, who has jokingly called Grande her wife in the past. Grande also publicly liked tweets that said "I expect to be a groomsman... mazel tov" and "I never thought I would see this day come... congratulations." To one Twitter user who wrote "I hope he knows he is MARRYING US AS WELL," Grande responded "HAHAHAHAHAHH HES BEEN BRIEFED."
Representatives for Grande and Davidson did not immediately respond to USA TODAY's request for comment on the engagement reports.
According to Us Weekly, the couple talked about their engagement at Robert Pattinson's Los Angeles birthday party on Saturday about a week after Davidson got a tattoo inspired by Grande behind his ear. Eagle-eyed fans speculate that Grande is wearing an engagement ring in a photo posted by her brother, Frankie.
Leading up to this weekend, the lovebirds have been posting plenty of PDA-filled Instagram photos. Both recently got out of previous relationships: Davidson with Cazzie David and Grande with Mac Miller.

Last month, The couple haven’t done much to their new seven-bedroom waterfront mansion at 81 Briar Patch Road on Georgica Pond. “It was pretty much turnkey ready,” a source tells Gimme Shelter, adding that they’ll only need to spruce up rooms for Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir.

The lower pool above the basketball court has been drained, and the basketball court is showing water damage.

Robin Thicke goes off on his Step Mom as Family Splits Up Alan Thicke’s $15 Million Estate
Robin Thicke had some choice words for his stepmother after he claims she went on a campaign to “feed her insatiable desire for publicity” which he believes left a dark mark on Alan Thicke‘s legacy.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, widow Tanya Thicke will get 40% of her late-husband’s estate, valued at $15,793,278.48. Each of his three children — Robin, Brennan and Carter — will receive 20%.
Robin, who is an administrator in the estate with Brennan, blasts Tanya by saying she stayed “True to form” and “initiated a media blitz serving no purpose but to besmirch the Co-Trustees and feed her insatiable desire for publicity regardless of the consequences to Alan’s legacy or his children.”
Along with cash, Tanya gets to keep a ranch in Carpinteria, CA.
A $100,000 loan which was given to Robin by his father was also cleared and “forgiven.”
Robin and Tanya have been at each other’s throats since Alan died, especially over the burial arrangements for their patriarch.
Alan died in 2016 at the age of 69 after suffering a heart attack while playing hockey with his son, Carter.

#OMG 73-year-old $50,000 lottery winner found fatally stabbed inside Bronx apartment
Police are searching for a killer after a beloved man was stabbed to death in the Bronx, and family members have identified a person of interest authorities are now looking for as the victim's own nephew.
From handing out money to random kids, to helping people with their bags and strollers, neighbors say 73-year-old Owen Dillard gave a great deal to this Mott Haven community before his life was violently taken Monday night.
Detectives were back in the morning searching for clues to help them find his killer.
"He touched so many people, it's unbearable right now," neighbor Michael Milliner said. "For real, I feel like I'm dreaming. Can't sleep."
Numb with agony, those who knew Dillard best say his legacy will live on through the many lives he touched with his smile, wise words and generosity.
"I have twins, and every time I come out, he's there with me, always helping me with the stroller," neighbor Charles Koroma said.
A desperate 911 call from his fiancee first brought police to his Beekman Avenue apartment around 8:30 p.m.
When investigators arrived, they found Dillard stabbed multiple times in the neck inside his third floor unit.
"It's just awful," Koroma said." It's just awful. It hits me, like, in our building, that happened."
Family members say Dillard recently won $50,000 playing the lottery, but so far, police have not stated a motive for his murder.
Another nephew, Shabazz Muhaymin, tells Eyewitness News Dillard was terminally ill and had been recently told by doctors that he had only months to live.
"All he wanted to do was just live his life out comfortably," he said.
He said police showed him video of two men wearing hoodies at the front door of the building carrying a bag. He said they stayed inside for nearly a half hour and then exited with a full bag, but that he did not recognize them.
"Video shows two individuals entering the lobby...and exiting about 20 to 25 minutes later with a book bag on their back, and the book bag seemed to be full," he said. "It wasn't full when they entered the building."
Neighbors remembered him handing out money to strangers.
"He sat right there by that store, and every kid that walked by, he gave money to randomly," Milliner said. "Just gave money. What kind of man does that?"
Holding on to memories of him inside his garden across the street and playing chess and dominoes at the corner bodega, many throughout the Mott Haven community are praying for justice.
"I hope you get caught," Milliner said. "You really need to get caught, OK, because that was uncalled for."
So far, police have not made any arrests. They're asking anyone with information to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
How The Entertainment Industry Is Reacting to Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un's North Korea Summit
President Donald Trump declared success after a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Tuesday afternoon -- but Hollywood's not buying it.
The meeting resulted with Trump and Kim signing a document agreeing to a handful of key provisions.
Overall, the two walked away with an understanding that Pyongyang would work toward denuclearization and that the United States would end joint military exercises with South Korea.
Neither side, however, specified exactly how Pyongyang would be achieving or verifying said denuclearization.
"We'll be verifying," Trump said after the summit. He also claimed Jong-un told him North Korea had already destroyed a "major" missile testing site.
POTUS claimed that the summit went "better than anybody could have expected" and said Jong-un had a great personality. Trump also said he would "absolutely" be inviting Jung-un to the White House.
Take a look at how Hollywood responded to the summit in the savage tweets below:

Janet Hubert blames Will Smith for son suicide attempt
Janet Hubert’s latest attack on Will Smith has folks wondering about her mental stability.
One person suggested Jada Pinkett Smith should invite Janet to “Red Table Talk” to hash things out once and for all.
I honestly doubt she would accept the invitation.
Either way, I pray Janet and her son are getting the help they need.
AND FINALLY FROM THE CRAZY PEOPLE SHOPPING AT WALMART FILES
