This is like Black Girl Magic on crack! Issa Rae + Solange Knowles = Pure Dopeness!

As if we couldn’t be anymore excited for the premiere of Issa’s new show Insecure, the Awkward Black Girl made sure the soundtrack would be just as good as the show by making Solo the music consultant.

During the pink carpet premiere for Insecure on Thursday night, Rae raved about Solange, her ear for fresh talent and her “fire” album, A Seat At The Table. “She’s amazing. She really took this job so seriously and she has so much access to great talent, especially in L.A. And she was just so great about listening to us”, the Insecure EP told HipHollywood. Issa also opened up about feeling “blessed” that her project is finally on the small screen and the need to constantly help the next generation of content creators. “I want to see new voices. I want to see different stories. I want to read about different experiences than mine. I think that’s when you have the most exciting content.”

Insecure debuts on HBO, Sunday, October 9th at 10:30 p.m.

Exclusive Details: Trey Songz Arrested For Domestic Violence + Singer’s Public Response



HipHollywood can confirm that singer, Trey Songz, was arrested on Monday morning on domestic violence charges.

The Los Angeles Police Department tells us that Tremaine Neverson, the r&b crooner’s legal name, was taken into custody around 6:30am. The arrest stemmed from an alleged violent incident on February 18.

We are told the singer was let out on bail, which was set at $50k.

After being released, Songz took to Instagram to respond to the arrest, writing on Twitter:

“For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed but this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone’s personal gain”

He added, “I won’t be speaking too much more on this but would like to thank you for all the prayers and support.”

The singer was also clearly unbothered by the arrest because he went as far as to share a string of stories on Instagram, which included him raving about the beautiful day and blasting music throughout his home.

As previously reported, during All Star Weekend, a woman claimed Songz unleashed fury during a Hollywood Hills party after he spotted her talking to another man.

Following the incident, the woman went to the hospital where she was treated before calling police.

The alleged victim’s lawyer, famous women’s rights attorney Lisa Bloom, even took to Instagram earlier this month to ask for any witnesses. “Went with my client today for her second police interview re her allegations that Trey Songz choked and punched her earlier this month,” Bloom tweeted. “Many were present. We need just one to have a conscience and step forward as a witness.”
