Plus, Taylor Swift performs with Walk The Moon and Chris Brown & Rita Ora have a song together.
Catch up on all the latest music tidbits while recovering from Friday’s hangover (and the inevitable one from Saturday).
■ Drake released a song titled “Charged Up” presumably about Meek Mill, who recently claimed in a public Twitter rant the “Energy” singer doesn’t write his own raps. Mill alleged Drake hides behind ghost writer Quentin Miller, who’s since publicly denounced those claims. Miller wrote a message on Tumblr saying:
“I am not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for Drake.. I’m proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but I could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together.”
“I did some charity today for the kids,” Drake raps in “Charged Up.” “But I’m used to it ‘cause all y’all charity cases. All y’all stare in my face in hopes you could be the replacement. N—–s snitching on us without no interrogation. I stay silent ‘cause we at war and I’m very patient. 6 God is watching, I just hope you’re prepared to face him. I’m charged up, i’m charged up.”
■ Kat Graham premiered her new slow-burner titled “Secrets” featuring (and produced by) Babyface:
■ Caitlyn Jenner surprised concert-goers Friday night (July 24) when she introduced Boy George’s group Culture Club at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. She said, “Caitlyn Jenner in the house for her first Boy George concert! This is going to be a good group. Thank you so much. Enough about me. Thank you for being here tonight. This is so much fun for me. Let’s hear it here at the Greek Theatre for Boy George! Let’s get it going!” [ETonline]

Do we all personally hv to lose someone from a gun to hv a real opinion on gun control or can we just literally start taking this SERIOUSLY.
■ Pitbull premieres the remix for “Piensas (Dile la verdad)” featuring Shaggy.
■ And finally, Eminem has the most expansive vocabulary in the biz.
