Ariana Grande
In an interview on Saturday, Ariana Grande told Ryan Seacrest that her sophomore album will be titled My Everything and it will drop on August 25. It will include the hit single "Problem" (featuring Iggy Azalea), as well as other guest spots such as "Break Free" (feat. Zedd); "Best Mistake" (feat. Big Sean); "Be My Baby" (feat. Cashmere Cat); and "Break Your Heart Right Back" (feat. Childish Gambino). As previously reported, MTV and Ariana will bring back the show TRL for one day only under the moniker Total Ariana Live on Wednesday, July 2. After performing a stripped-down version of "Problem" on the show, the singer will debut her new single "Break Free" for the first time and announce an upcoming surprise to MTV News host Sway Calloway.

Wiz Khalifa's long-awaited new album, Blacc Hollywood, will finally arrive on August 19. Wiz will herald his third record by headlining this year's Under the Influence of Music Tour, which features a cavalcade of hip-hop stars including Jeezy and Ty Dolla $ign. The tour kicks off July 24 in Scranton, PA.

Against Me! has extended its North American summer tour to include more dates in August. Touring behind the release of Transgender Dysphoria Blues, Against Me! will be making both headlining and supporting appearances in the U.S. and Canada beginning with a performance at Forecastle Festival in Louisville, KY on Friday, July 18 and extending through the middle of October.

Apparently Disney star Zendaya Coleman will no longer portray Aaliyah in an upcoming Lifetime biopic about the late singer. The project, titled Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, was to begin filming over the summer with a fall premiere date planned. "We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold," the Lifetime network posted on its Twitter account on Sunday.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Soul singer Bobby Womack passed away on Friday at the age of 70. He was suffering from colon cancer and diabetes at the time of his death, according to The Hollywood Reporter. As a singer he is most notable for the hits "Lookin' for a Love," "That's The Way I Feel About Cha", "Woman's Gotta Have It", "Harry Hippie" and  "Across 110th Street," although he became a session musician in Memphis and played on recordings by Joe Tex and Aretha Franklin. Wilson Pickett also recorded some of Womack's compositions such as "I'm a Midnight Mover" and "I'm in Love."
