Listen to Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande’s Sultry Tag-Team, ‘Bed’

With all the Nicki Minaj-Ariana Grande tag-teams on the way, it can be easy to forget which one goes where. Here goes: Today, as promised, the pair dropped “Bed,” their collaboration from Minaj’s forthcoming album “Queen.” The song is the fourth to precede the album (after “Rich Sex,” featuring Lil Wayne, earlier this week), which last month Minaj bumped to an August 10 drop from its original release date of June 15.

Earlier this week, Grande announced another Minaj collaboration — “The Light Is Coming,” out June 20 — as well as the release date of her own forthcoming album “Sweetener” (July 20). Grande performed some of the song during her set at iHeartRadio’s Wango Tango festival in Los Angeles earlier this month.

Also earlier this week, Minaj announced dates for a fall tour with Future (which appear below). Back in April, she released the singles “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” and performed on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” on May 19 (although the highlight may have been an unaired segment, where she dropped a fiery verse in a Haim-parody about supporting friends by cutting down other people).

    Off Broadway Review: 'Soft Power'

    The “culture-clash musical” is a familiar template, in which a white American protagonist — waving the flag of individuality, optimism and freedom — trumps and tramps over the complexities of that which is foreign, challenging or “other.” David Henry Hwang and Jeanine Tesori’s “Soft Power,” the new “play with a musical” at Off Broadway’s Public [...]

Mitchell is as impossible to emulate as a ridiculously tricky singer, songwriter and picker as they come, which [...]
