DJ SpinbadSay goodbye to the silly 80s revival, because it’s getting old. The early 90s has been represented and celebrated at raves, but we haven’t seen the music of the 90s make it’s big comeback yet. However, DJ Spinbad may be just the man who shines a light on the 90s, rekindling interest in the decade that began almost 20 years ago. He just put out a free 90s megamix that is pretty amazing. It features music from the decade, but also splices in TV and film audio bites as well, creating an amazing 80-minute mix that anyone alive in the 90s will enjoy.

Beyonce Knowles Knowles took a 45-foot car ride from her London hotel to a shop. The Single Ladies singer took two chauffeur driven vehicles containing her team and bodyguards, trailed by paparazzi, on a car journey from the Mandarin Oriental Hotel - located in the exclusive Knightsbridge area of the UK capital - to the Harvey Nicholls department store across the street. Beyonce reportedly demanded on being driven because she didn’t want to walk in her high heels.

After being escorted around the designer store for just 20 minutes she took her car back to her hotel. A source told Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “Beyonce has always been down to earth but her antics were astonishing. It looked like they were preparing for a long journey, but it was over as soon as it began. It would have been much quicker to have strolled across the road.

The 27-year-old singer is in the UK for the final dates of her I Am world tour.

Lauryn HillAn undisclosed health issue has forced the cancellation of Lauryn Hill’s entire European tour.

The Fugees’ former lead singer had been scheduled to headline the Stockholm Jazz Festival on July 15. Performances in Sweden, Greece, the Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Italy, France and Austria were to follow.

Hill’s agent gave no further details while contacting festival organizers earlier this week.

Those shows would have come nearly 10 years after the debut of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. That album went on to see five Grammys after its release in 1998.

Since that time, the R&B singer has spent most of her time out of the limelight. Lauryn and her boyfriend, Rohan Marley, currently have five children together.

The situation with Rihanna may have cost Chris Brown a lot of fans, but that won’t keep the singer from trying to win them over.

Even though a preliminary hearing on his assault case is just weeks away, the singer is currently focusing his energy on a new album. According to songwriter and collaborator Robert Allen, Brown’s time away from the spotlight has been about more than just hiding out. (Because, as he made it quite clear in the video, he “ain’t a monster.”) “You want to go away so your audience can miss you some,” Allen said. “But he’s so happy and ready for this next album to break through and make a big impact. He wants this to be his masterpiece. He’s predicting this will be his biggest album.”

Chris Brown country song is currently recording a country song. The 20-year-old Brown, who has pleaded not guilty to assaulting on/off girlfriend in February, is believed to be working on a new track called ‘Trapped in a Dream’ which may be included on his next album.

Chris’ producer Robert Allen said: “Maybe we’ll see an appearance from country star Carrie Underwood or someone like that. It’s that kind of song. It’s just feeling like you don’t want that dream to go away. Everybody has a dream and you’re in it, but you wake up and you’re like, ‘Oh, my God.’ You feel like you’re still in that dream.”
