Peloton’s global community is home to over 3.6 million members and Beyoncé is the most requested artist on the platform. With COVID-19 essentially sidelining the usual in-person homecoming festivities for HBCUs, the partnership will put a twist on virtual celebrations geared towards fitness. The classes will span across multiple fitness categories, including indoor cycling, running, strength, Bootcamp fitness, yoga, and meditation. Beyoncé announced the partnership on her website with a statement for her fans.

I am honored to partner with Peloton and gift HBCU students a 2-year Digital Membership which will give them free access to the Peloton App, including classes with the best instructors and now, featuring my music.

We believe that the power of music can help uplift, motivate and inspire those on their fitness journeys. I’ve been a Peloton member for several years, and I’m excited to partner with a company that helps people, young and old, be the best versions of themselves, in an innovative and adaptable way. This year has tested all of us and I know the college experience looks a little different than planned, and many were not able to celebrate Homecoming the way they wanted to. Still, I hope everyone was able to take time to reflect and to celebrate the strength, excellence and resilience of our community. I’m proud to celebrate the students at HBCUs with this donation, to encourage them to find and embrace their own wellness regimens.

The subscriptions provide access to a full library of fitness classes through the Peloton App. The digital memberships will go to students at Howard University, Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College and Morehouse School of Medicine, Bennett College, Hampton University, Texas Southern University, Wilberforce University, and Grambling State University by the end of November.

This is the first phase of their partnership with much more to come. It’s safe to say Peloton over-delivered for their community who has been asking for the queen for quite some time now.

Rap Royalty Rumble, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B Square Off in Release Date Duel, Joe Budden Spills the Tea

The battle for rap supremacy between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B has been a long-standing saga, and just when you thought the dust had settled, it seems the queens are gearing up for another showdown. Recent events, including the release of Pink Friday 2 and the fiery “Like What” freestyle, have reignited discussions about the timing of their drops, prompting speculation about strategic release date maneuvers.

In a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast, the titular host, Joe Budden, threw gasoline on the fire, claiming that Nicki Minaj has a history of adjusting her album release dates to coincide with Cardi B’s. According to Budden, whenever Cardi was gearing up to drop a project, Nicki would swiftly alter her plans, playing a game of musical chairs with release dates.

“I ain’t trying to start any fires here [sorry, Joe], but Nicki changed that date like five times trying to sync up with Cardi’s drops,” Budden spilled to his intrigued co-hosts. “That was supposed to be the 50 and Kanye moment. It would’ve been a big boost for Cardi, you know? Nicki was going to sell regardless, but Cardi could’ve ridden that wave for a major marketing win.”

However, as fate would have it, the anticipated clash didn’t materialize, and Nicki dropped her project independently. Budden speculates that Cardi may have backed out, hinting at a retreat from the anticipated face-off. As we enter the sixth year of this rivalry, Budden suggests that other female rappers might be facing similar behind-the-scenes drama, where branding speaks louder than the music itself.

2024 has already witnessed Kid Cudi‘s musical revolution with the release of INSANO and its NITRO MEGA expansion, but the Cleveland visionary is far from done. In a recent Twitter revelation on March 2, Cudi tantalizingly teased two upcoming films, promising a rollercoaster ride of madness and hilarity.

“I got the music outta me,” he declared, igniting excitement among fans. “HELL NAW, the film at Sony with the Lucas Bros is coming together beautifully. It’s madddd funny and ridiculous. Can’t wait for y’all to see this madness.” And that’s not all – Cudi’s directorial debut, “TEDDY,” is on the horizon, set to unfold its magic sometime after the tour.

Breaking away from the musical scene, the 40-year-old maestro has boldly announced a shift toward film, with his next album slated for 2026. “Expect an album from me every other year,” he shared. “Next year is all about filmin’. Got a bunch of stuff I need to get done. Film and TV. Taking a year off music to do it all.”

But the surprises don’t end there. Cudi, known for pushing creative boundaries, recently flaunted a striking floral head tattoo that encircles his skull, marking a bold departure from his usual artistic expressions.

Returning to the cinematic realm, “Hell Naw,” a zombie horror comedy co-written with the talented minds behind “Judas & The Black Messiah,” promises to blend laughter and spine-chilling horror. Cudi guarantees, “You will be shook. I promise. Y’all know I don’t play around.”

On a more personal note, “Teddy” draws inspiration from Cudi’s 2009 hit, “Pursuit of Happiness.” Executive produced by Jay-Z and Jeymes Samuel, this comedy promises to weave Cudi’s personal struggles and experiences into a tapestry of trippy, fun, and poignant moments. Cudi believes, “This film is very close to my heart. It’s trippy, it’s fun, it’s sad, it’s life.”
