DJ Khaled may be spotlighting his metamorphosis on his forthcoming album I Changed A Lot but his latest release remains true to his “We The Best” mantra. For “Hold You Down,” Khaled celebrates the ladies by tapping every chart-topping R&B dude to sing to ’em including Chris Brown, Jeremih, August Alsina and (if you count AutoTune wailing serenading) Future. The hip-hop ballad serves as the follow-up to his rap star-studded street anthem “They Don’t Love You No More,” which Remy Ma recently blessed with a remix. Hop into bed with the Bkorn, Lee on the Beats, & LDB-produced after hours banger below, courtesy of Miss Info. “Hold You Down” makes its worldwide debut on BET’s 106 & Park today (Aug. 11).
As you may recall last year, Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes announced that he intended to introduce a black character to the show’s cast for its fourth season. And what better way to attract more diverse viewers? And it was later announced that the character will be played by Gary Carr, who many of you will know from his role as the young ambitious cop Fidel Best on the BBC series Death in Paradise. In the upcoming season 4, Carr will play a singer at an exclusive night club. The character he plays has been described as “a charming and charismatic young man.” One of the producers of the series said that Carr’s addition to the cast “will bring interesting twists to the drama which we can’t wait for viewers to see in series four.” Hmmmmmmmmmm… What could that mean? I think I have a guess.
Here’s the first trailer for season 4, which premieres in the U.S. on PBS in January 2014:
