The Juice Podcast: Big Sean vs. Justin Bieber, Wale, Frank Ocean & Jay Z's Tidal

On episode 39 of The Juice Podcast, media personality Nile "LowKey" Ivey and BET’s Taj Rani join me to discuss the week's R&B/hip-hop trending topics.

We put the spotlight Big Sean's alleged reaction to Justin Bieber getting a little too close to Ariana Grande. We go on discuss the person vs. persona of rapper Wale, who’s new album The Album About Nothing debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week.

Wale Rules With Second No. 1 Album

We veer toward the topic of “more than friends,” when discussing The Album About Nothing song “The Need to Know,” featuring SZA. Let me know if you agree with us. (Spoiler alert: It’s a case-by-case debate.)

After Taj shares her thoughts on Frank Ocean and Miguel, the three of us discuss the pros and cons of Jay Z’s streaming service, Tidal, and its launch.

Let me know over on Twitter (@3rika) what you think of LowKey being the new official co-host of The Juice Podcast. (Jokes aside, I’d be honored to have Low co-host!)
