From Child Star to Media Mogul: Why Marques Houston Says His Worst Year Turned Into His Best Year

Marques Houston has more in store for fans after his new single. 

It’s been almost two years since the megastar dropped his last album; now he’s back and ready to regain his rightful place in the R&B world. On Friday (May 24), Houston released a new track, “Last Drop” from his forthcoming album, “The Best Worst Year Ever,” slated to premiere later this year. In 2023, the child star turned media mogul navigated waves of highs and lows while balancing a full plate as an in-demand entertainer, along with his responsibilities as a doting husband and father.

“It’s crazy to be able to contrast good and bad,” he tells BET.com. “When you’re an artist, people look at you like you’re not real sometimes, but we’re real people and we go through real problems.”

The singer admits the complexities of those moments “was like being hit with a reality check [that] you’re still human,” adding, “But then at the end of the day, things happen that you just can’t explain.”

Famed football player O.J. Simpson died at the age of 76 on April 10th, after a battle with cancer. Simpon’s official X (formerly known as Twitter) account posted the news on Thursday, April 11.

Simpson’s journey to fame began on the football field. He attended the University of Southern California (USC) on a football scholarship, where he quickly became a star running back. In 1968, he won the Heisman Trophy, awarded to the best college football player in the United States, cementing his status as one of the greatest running backs in college football history.

After his successful college career, Simpson was drafted by the Buffalo Bills as the first overall pick in the 1969 NFL Draft. During his tenure with the Bills, which lasted from 1969 to 1977, Simpson achieved remarkable success on the field. He became the first NFL player to rush for over 2,000 yards in a single season, accomplishing this feat in 1973. He was named the NFL MVP in 1973 and earned six Pro Bowl selections during his career.

Off the field, Simpson pursued a career in acting and broadcasting. He appeared in films such as “The Towering Inferno” and “The Naked Gun” series, showcasing his charisma and charm beyond the football field. Additionally, he worked as a sports commentator and analyst, further solidifying his presence in the media landscape.

Kanye West, also known as Ye is taking action to ensure that he is only referred to by his new moniker after legally changing his name in October 2021, TMZ reports.

In a letter issued by Milo Yiannopoulos, Ye’s Chief of Staff and former Breitbart News editor, the rapper is demanding that streamers, publishers, lyric websites, and other entities call him by his new name from now on.

“Ye is one of the most recognizable people in the world, on par with presidents and popes,” the letter read. “He didn’t take the decision to change his name, potentially sacrificing some of the immense value captured by the brand of ‘Kanye West,’ lightly. The change was made fully, legally, and permanently. This is who he is now. His name is Ye.”

Yiannopoulos also noted in the  letter that Kanye is “a Black man in America who wants the right to full self-determination just like everyone else.”

While he’s still referred to as Kanye, he first shared the name change on X (formerly Twitter) coinciding with the release of his eighth studio album, “Ye,” in 2018.
