Though Media Take Out claimed to know the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby, reports by TMZPeople and E! News have confirmed that the actual name of the newborn is North West. As of 6:25 p.m. on June 20, TMZ reported that North West is the name listed on the birth certificate at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where Kim gave birth to their daughter on June 15. At 10:15 p.m., People reported that a "source" had confirmed the name. At 9:06 p.m., an hour before People's report was released, E! News reported that a source close to the family said that, "They will call her [the baby] Nori for short."

At 4:59 a.m. on June 21, E! News exclusively reported that Kim, Kanye and baby Nori were leaving the hospital and that the "trio" was in good spirits. Despite the fact that Kim gave birth five weeks early, People reports that baby and mother are doing fine and are without complications.

SIDE NOTE: I know that I'm late. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Let's move on.  :)

With all of the buzz around Kanye West's new album "Yeezus," no one was expecting Jay-Z to drop new material, let alone an album.

In a commercial that aired during the NBA finals game on June 16, Jay-Z revealed that he is releasing a new album called "Magna Carta Holy Grail" on July 4. Of the album, he said, "[It's about] this duality of how do you navigate through this whole thing…through success, through failures, through all this and remain yourself."

"We don’t have any rules. Everyone’s trying to figure it out. That’s why the Internet is like the wild west...the wild, wild west. We need to write the new rules,” he continued. “The idea is to really finish the album then drop it. ...Giving it to the world at one time and letting them share it and it goes out."

The clip also features appearances by Rick Rubin, Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Swizz Beatz and is a collaboration with Samsung.

"Magna Carta Holy Grail" will be available for free to the first 1 million Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 ad Galaxy Note II users who download the customized Magna Carter app on June 24, according to the official website. Galaxy users will have access to the album on July 4, 72 hours before its sale release.

New MUSIC!: Chris Brown in 'Somebody Else (Remix)'


SIDE NOTE: Since he's with Karrueche, does this mean this song is about Rihanna? Who knows. It could be about Karrueche. It could have nothing to do with either one of them.

Whatever the case may be, the song is interesting and we shall have to wait and see whether or not Rihanna responds to it.

The song is a remix to the recently released track "Somebody Else" by Mario and Nicki Minaj.

The show-stopping songbird performed "Standing on the Sun" for the first time on Friday night during a stop in Belgium for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. A snippet of the song originally debuted in Beyoncé's new H&M ad in April.

There is no word as to whether the song or other previously released new tracks by Beyoncé, including "Grown Woman" from her new Pepsi ad and "Bow Down / I Been On," will be included on her upcoming album, which has yet to receive a title or release date.
