LONDON — The weights are official for tomorrow’s big heavyweight showdown between IBF titlist Anthony Joshua and former undisputed champion Wladimir Klitschko. Joshua’s weight of 250 is the highest of his career. Over his previous five fights, the champion has tallied an average of 246. Klitschko’s two years away from the ring has resulted in his lowest weight since 2009. The former champ tipped the scales at a trim 240, five pounds less than in his 2015 title loss to Tyson Fury.
Klitschko vs. Joshua airs live Saturday on Showtime at 4:15 p.m. ET.
With son Asahd working hard in the director’s seat, DJ Khaled invites an all-star cast to his mansion to celebrate success and their blessings in “I’m the One.” The catchy melody goes perfect with Bieber’s light vocals and the emcees maintain a carefree mode in spite of a few raunchy lines. Don’t be surprised if this crosses over to pop radio and dominates into the summer months.

Breakups to autotune makeups abound in SZA’s new video for “Love Galore.” Travis Scott plays the love/hate interest for SZA’s rollercoaster emotions, which include sensual caressing, bondage and finally a Misery-inspired murder. Leave these crazy chicks alone, fellas.

It’s been three years since our ears have been caressed by Goapele’s sultry vocals. The Bay Area vocalist ends that drought next month with a new project entitled Dreamseekers. The first single is the vibrant, ethereal “Power,” which showcases a reflective Goapele that celebrates love in all its facets (self, family, community etc.)
“I’m a woman, but I’m also a whole person who won’t be confined to any one box,” she told VIBE. “Nobody is just one thing. Within any race, within any genre, and within any neighborhood, there’s so much diversity. As artists and especially as women of color, we have to be proud of that. I’m coming from an honest place and expressing the different parts of myself that make me whole.”
Dreamseekers is set for a May 19 release.
