Last Lap: What’s Frank Ocean’s Message To Chipotle?

Who’s Billboard’s top earning artist? The National take over Big Morning Buzz Live, and Drake is about to touch down in Houston.

  • Following Frank Ocean’s dispute with Chipotle, the singer-producer was forced to return an advance payment on a recording he never made. He issued a check to the food chain, but not without letting his feelings be known. In the check’s memo field, he simply wrote, “F**k off.” [Vulture]
  • The National stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live for a viscerally moving rendition of their song, “I Need My Girl.” Catch a clip of the set below.
  • We already figured that Taylor Swift was running things, but now it looks like Billboard has confirmed what we already thought was true. The country crossover star has topped Billboard’s Money Makers list, by raking in nearly $40 million in the past year. Beyonce and Maroon 5 also made the list, with earning estimates including money made from tours, album sales, and other avenues. [Huffington Post]
  • If you happen to be anywhere near Houston, Drake is coming your way. The Toronto rapper is showing his love for the Texas town by appearing at a concert series called Houston Appreciation Weekend, and we can only imagine he’ll be bringing some Gulf-style heat to his shows! [MTV News]
