Sam Smith

Sam Smith continued his breakthrough year at the 2014 MOBO Awards. The British sensation picked up four awards including Best R&B/Soul Act, Best Male Act, and Best Song for “Stay With Me” at the 19th annual ceremony at London’s SSE Arena Wembley on Wednesday.

Eve presented the Best Album to Smith for his critically-acclaimed debut In the Lonely Hour. “I just want to thank ever single person who wrote on my record with me and was my personal therapist for a good year,” said Smith, who dedicated the award to his parents.

Nicole Scherzinger served up her single “On the Rocks” off her album Big Fat Lie, which was released in the U.K. earlier in the week. Jessie J was joined by special guest Kid Ink on “Burnin’ Up,” and Jeremih had the crowd moving along to his top 10 hit “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

K. Michelle turned heads on the red carpet in a bootylicious black dress, Eve arrived with her husband Maximillion Cooper, and Kid Ink brought his own hot date.

Other MOBO winners included Beyoncé for Best International Act and Jessie J for Best Female Act.

New Music: Riddim Commission f/ Eve – ‘Why Would You Stop’

Eve

The honeymoon is over. Eve, who wed British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper last month, gets back to business on her first release as a married woman. The Philly rapper experiments with a new sound on “Why Would You Stop,” a collaboration with London-based DJ/production duo Riddim Commission.

E-V-E gets the club fired up while spitting over an electro-house beat, which is destined for club domination.

“She’s a progressive artist, so she knows what’s hot, she knows what’s dope, and she’s willing to explore and take risks,” one half of the duo, DJ Swerve, said of Eve.

Did the risk pay off? Listen to E-V-E switch up her flow (starting at the 6:52 mark).

Eve and Azealia Banks Meet Up at Paris Fashion Week

Eve and Azealia Banks

Eve and Azealia Banks put the past behind them and caught up at Paris Fashion Week. The rap divas were both performers at the Etam womenswear fall/winter show on Tuesday. They ripped the runway alongside lingerie-clad models and posed together backstage.

“Eve is such a nice lady! So happy to have performed alongside her tonight !!!” gushed Azealia. “Eve reminds me so much of my sister Latwan.”

Eve reposted the photo, adding, “Amazing energy tonight!”

The Philly rapper reached out to Azealia for a collaboration in the past, but didn’t hear back. “I think she might have been one of the ones that was like, ‘I think I’m busy.’ She was doing her thing and poppin’, so it could be that,” she told “The Breakfast Club” last year.

However, she still gave her props. “I like her wordplay. I think she actually can rhyme, I just don’t like the drama,” said Eve of the “212″ hitmaker.

For her part, Azealia said she was never even aware that Eve’s camp had reached out. “Def never even received a memo about collaborating ! Def never turned you down,” she tweeted.

See the fierce femcees strut their stuff at Fashion Week.

Lil' Kim

It was ladies’ night as Lil’ Kim and Eve co-headlined a show at indigO2 at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday. The fierce femcees performed solo sets for their British fans. Eve opened with her self-titled Lip Lock single and “Satisfaction,” and served up her biggest hits including “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” and “Who’s That Girl,” closing with “Tambourine.”

Dressed in all red, the Queen Bee stormed the stage with a nostalgic set that included “Lighters Up,” “Big Momma Thang,” and “The Jump Off.” She brought out her protégée Tiffany Foxx to perform their collaboration “Jay Z,” repped her hometown with “Empire State of Mind,” and shut it down with her remix of Rihanna’s “Man Down.”

The rap divas have developed a friendship throughout the years. “I love Kim,” Eve told Rap-Up TV. “I’ve always been a Kim fan since I was in high school. I was smoking a lot of blunts listening to Kim. I would love to get with her on another record.”

They have recorded a reggae-flavored collaboration called “Murder She Wrote” for Missy Elliott’s upcoming album.

Watch the ladies get live in London.
