This week in entertainment news, rapper Logic reveals the tracklist for his upcoming album, an upcoming biography about singer Beyoncé brings alleged relationship issues to light, and singer The Weeknd pleads no contest to his January incident.

First up, rapper Logic reveals the tracklist for his upcoming album “The Incredible True Story.” Unlike some of the recent albums, Logic’s sophomore album has few features on its eighteen tracks. After his impressive debut album “Under Pressure,” the Maryland rapper is headed down a similar path and its even more evident on previously released tracks such as ‘Young Jesus’ and ‘Like Woah’. “I can’t wait to share this album with you! Nothing but positive vibes and good music! #TheIncredibleTrueStory,” he shared on Twitter.  Logic’s “The Incredible True Story” is set for a November 13th release and is now available for pre-order on iTunes.

In other news, an upcoming biography about singer Beyoncé brings alleged relationship issues to light. Although its titled “Becoming Beyoncé,” it hasn’t actually been authorized by Beyoncé herself. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, J. Randy Taraborrelli, the author of this biography, said that rapper turned mogul Jay-Z and Beyoncé split up roughly ten years ago due to rumors that Jay and then 17-year-old Rihanna were romantically involved. Taraborrelli also suggested that those rumors were made up by Rihanna’s publicist to help better establish her spot in the music industry. If there is any truth to the rumors, the incident that happened earlier in the year with Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and her sister Solange in the elevator is related to the affair rumors.

Lastly, singer The Weeknd pleaded no contest to his January incident. During his Las Vegas visit, The Weeknd was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer. The singer pled no contest at his court hearing to punching the officer in the head and his deal with the judge may just keep him out of jail, that is if he can meet all of the requirements. According to TMZ, the requirements of The Weeknd’s deal with the judge includes paying $1,000 to an injured cop fund, completing anger management and alcohol evaluation, and completing 50 hours of community service, which can be done at a non-profit group in Canada.
