It’s another boy for Momma Keys and Poppa Beatz.

The “Girl on Fire” singer (33) and Beatz (35), a rapper and music producer, welcomed their son, Genesis Ali Dean, in the early morning hours on Saturday. The public announcement was made in a very 21st century way, through Instagram. Alicia took to her account to post an adorable pic of her newborn’s footprint.

The joy of joy is joy!! It’s a boy!!???????????????? we are so grateful!! #blessings!!????????????

Born at 1:52 a.m. and weighing 6 pounds, 5 ounces, Genesis Ali Dean is the second child for the couple, as they already have a 4 year-old son, Egypt. As this is only Alicia’s second child, this will be the fifth for Swizz. He has three daughters from previous relationships, so Egypt must be happy to have a little brother to play with now.

Alicia announced that her and hubby Swizz were expecting again via Instagram back in July on their fourth wedding anniversary. “Happy Anniversary to the love of my life @therealswizzz!!” she captioned a photo of her baby bump. She adds, “And to make it even sweeter we’ve been blessed with another angel on the way!! You make me happier than I have ever known! Here’s to many many more years of the best parts of life!

Congratulations Alicia & Swizz!

Ariana Grande Performs On NBC's "Today"

There’s no question Ariana Grande dominated 2014. From her No.1  sophomore album My Everything — which spawned two Billboard top-five hits: “Problem” (feat. Iggy Azalea) and “Break Free” (feat. Zedd) — to live performances rampant with kitty ears and go-go boots, the 21-year-old certainly laid down groundwork to be the next pop queen.  But her reign’s not over yet.

Some of our favorite pop stars weren’t timid about turning up the heat in their music videos this year. Nicki Minaj steamed up the jungle (and other things) when she gave Drake a rousing lap dance, J.Lo yachted with a dozen chiseled papis—and went cheek-to-cheek with Iggy Azalea, and T.I. vacationed in Rio with a gaggle of beauties (none of whom were mediocre, of course). 2014 was a memorable year for sexy videos, indeed.
