Keri Hilson

Following the success of Ride Along, Kevin Hart has his sights set on another blockbuster. Hollywood’s new king of the box office was joined by some of his industry friends at the Pan African Film & Arts Festival premiere of his romantic comedy About Last Night in L.A. last night.

Hart looked like money in a shiny red suit as he arrived with his hot date, girlfriend Eniko Parrish.

Keri Hilson showed off her curves in a patterned body-hugging dress, while LeToya Luckett and Lil Mama shined bright in yellow.

John Legend, who contributed two songs to the film’s soundtrack, went solo (His wife Chrissy Teigen was at New York Fashion Week).

“Went to the ‘About Last Night’ premiere tonight. Very funny! Go see it this weekend!” tweeted the “All of Me” crooner.

The film hits theaters on Valentine’s Day.

New Music: LeToya Luckett – ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’

Don't Make Me Wait

While she records her new album, LeToya Luckett holds fans over with “Don’t Make Me Wait.” The former Destiny’s Child member tells her man to come and get it on the two-minute track, which was inspired by her role on VH1′s “Single Ladies.”

“You better come and get me / Don’t make me wait,” she sings over the clapping beat.

“‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ is a song that I did with ‘Single Ladies’ in mind. It’s all about the chase!” said LeToya. “I’m excited to release my first single from my forthcoming album in a little bit, and until then, I wanted to give fans a taste of what I’ve been working on. Enjoy!”

LeToya’s third album Until Then is due later this year.

LeToya Luckett

LeToya Luckett showed off her new look for the new year during her appearance on “The Wendy Williams Show.” The former Destiny’s Child singer, who traded her “swoop bang” for a short and curly auburn ‘do, chatted about her role as icy manager Felicia Price on VH1′s “Single Ladies” and her relationship with Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland (She called Kelly to congratulate her on her engagement).

Wendy wasn’t shy to ask about her love life and the last time she had sex. “It’s been a while … Way too long,” admitted LeToya, who explained why she’s still single.

“I don’t really like to date,” she said. “I’m to myself. I can be very picky, but at the same time, I’m very patient with waiting on God and whoever he has for me, I will wait on that.”

Until that day comes, LeToya has been spending her time in the studio working on her third album Until Then. “It will be released sometime this year,” she said.

LeToya Luckett plays his leading lady in the Colin Tilley-directed clip, which was shot at a sprawling mansion. His boo Ciara also stopped by the set.

Rap-Up TV: LeToya Luckett Shares Reaction to Beyoncé’s Billboard Speech

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from LeToya Luckett. Rap-Up TV caught up with the Destiny’s Child alum at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards last week. Since parting ways with Capitol Records, the Houston gal is in the early stages of recording her third album and offered a hint of what we can expect.

“It’s gonna be R&B, but it’s gonna be on a whole ‘nother level,” teased LeToya, who acts alongside Taraji P. Henson in the upcoming film From the Rough and appears on the HBO series “Treme.”

She also recalled her teary-eyed reaction when former groupmate Beyoncé acknowledged her while accepting the Millennium Award at the Billboard Music Awards. “She said it and tears just started rolling down my eyes,” said LeToya. “I’m so blessed to even say that I was once a part of that group. She’s such an amazing person. I learned so much from even being around her, so thank you B.”

During the interview, LeToya overheard Oakland hip-hop legend Too $hort say that he’d like to collaborate with her, and she was more than flattered. They sealed the deal with a pinky swear, so you can hold her to it.
