B.o.B, fresh from his performance with Jessie J on SNL, has dropped the video for his 70s-inspired jam “Dr. Aden”, off his No Genre mixtape.

Idolator Staff | March 13, 2011 - 9:29 am

Pretty much any up-and-coming artist would find a shot at being the musical guest on Saturday Night Live priceless, so what song could possibly be more appropriate than Jessie J’s “Price Tag”? Last night, many American viewers likely laid eyes (and ears) on the red-hot UK import for the first time as she… More »

Becky Bain | March 4, 2011 - 12:24 pm

The pity party continues for Lupe Fiasco. The Chicago rapper recently discussed the fight with Atlantic to release his shelved LP Lasers, despite the fact the album was mostly filled with tracks he didn’t much care for. Now we learn that Lupe was nearly suicidal when his label chose B.o.B’s version of “Nothin’ On You” More »

Erika Brooks Adickman | February 11, 2011 - 11:12 am

On the cover of next month’s VIBE magazine are Bruno Mars, B.o.B. and Wiz Khalifa—we’re assuming that’s the reason the colors this issue simply had to be “Black And Yellow”. Considering this is the Rolling Papers rapper’s first cover for the music mag, we have to wonder, why the long face? Was this photo taken… More »

Idolator Staff | February 7, 2011 - 4:22 pm

Sunday’s 2011 Grammy Awards telecast is sure to be noteworthy — everyone from Lady Gaga to Gwyneth Paltrow seems to be on the bill to perform — but as stoked as we are to see whether Cee Lo sticks to the censored version of his song or lets the FCC go ballistic, we’re most excited… More »

In a very meta moment, B.o.B performed his hit song “Airplanes” while on an actual airplane on route to Los Angeles for the Grammys. (Sadly, Hayley Williams was not an on-board passenger.) Bobby Ray was flying Delta, the airline that recently let Kanye take over the loudspeaker with a mini-concert and also just happens to… More »

J. Cole’s “Pass Me By” has been floating around in various incarnations for awhile — we previously posted a rendition featuring Kevin Cossom called “Leave Me Alone”— and today it comes with none other than B.o.B on the hook.

Critical BRIT Awards darling Jessie J is following up her UK hit “Do It Like A Dude” (currently at #2 across the pond) with “Price Tag,” which features Grammy-nominated rapper B.o.B on the track.

Robbie Daw | December 7, 2010 - 9:15 am

Multiple Grammy nominee B.o.B directed the video for “The Watchers”, a song off his new mixtape No Genre (download from his official site).

While we may not have gotten everything we wanted off of our 2011 Grammy Nominee wish list (no “Dog Days Are Over” or Ke$ha?), last night’s performances from the live telecast did not disappoint—with perhaps the exception of Katy Perry opting for a non-latex dress for “California Gurls”.

B.o.B Holds On Strong In His “Don’t Let Me Fall” Video

Becky Bain | November 17, 2010 - 12:40 pm

We were underwhelmed with B.o.B’s video for “Airplanes“, which, despite being nothing spectacular, was nominated for Video Of The Year at this past year’s VMAs. But we’re enchanted by the Atalanta rapper’s latest aspirational clip for his single, “Don’t Let Me Fall”.
