In Case You Haven’t Heard …

A Quick Serving of News and Gossip from the Music Biz

Britney Spears has had her share of tabloid drama over the last few years, but the sun is shining through the proverbial clouds for the pop star. She’s currently working on her next album, set for release in 2009, and the urban-infused collection has been described by Spears as her “best work yet.” She also was the cover feature for this week’s OK! magazine.

Some sad news in the music world. Last week, soul legend Isaac Hayes died, apparently because of a stroke, as did music journalists and producer Jerry Wexler, who is credited with coining the term “rhythm and blues” and produced classic records with high-profile artists such as Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles.

Master P (now known as P. Miller) will launch his new TV network in 2009, Better Black Television. BBTV is set to compete directly with Black Entertainment Television (BET) in the markets where it is added to cable and satellite offerings.

Spanish-pop group RBD announced that they will break up after a four-year stint as a band, though it is not known where the superstar roster will make its last public performance.

John Legend’s “Green Light” (which features Andre 3000) has received the remix treatment by MSTRKRFT. Fans can visit MSTRKRFT’s MySpace page to hear the track. Legend’s next album, Evolver, is set for release in October.

Happy birthday to Madonna! The Material Girl celebrated her 50th on Saturday.
