Just a day after losing the Queen of Rock, there as no doubt who today’s TBT selection belonged to.

In 1994, the producers of GoldenEye, the 17th movie in the James Bond series, began making plans for the movie’s theme song. They initially approached Depeche Mode, but due to scheduling conflicts, the band passed on the opportunity. Enter Tina Turner.

While the Queen of Rock has written a hit song or two in her day, she was tapped purely for her singing chops. Bono and The Edge from U2 were asked to write a song, and after learning of Tina Turner’s involvement, agreed to do it. The song was produced by Nellee Hooper.

(Sidebar: Tina Turner wasn’t the only artist to record a theme song for GoldenEye. Ace of Base recorded a song called “The GoldenEye” that was turned down — the band later reworked it into a song called “The Juvenile.”)

As far as Bond theme songs go, “GoldenEye” is one of the best ever. Tina’s deep vocals deliver each word in a way that is sexy yet dangerous, capturing the very essence of the Bond movies. The song didn’t crack the Billboard Hot 100; however, it was a major hit across Europe.

Eight-time Grammy winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Tina Turner has passed away. According to her spokesperson, she died at her home in Zurich after a long illness. She was 83 years old.

In the hours since her passing, everyone from Barack Obama to Beyoncé to Oprah Winfrey has paid tribute to the music icon.

Long live the Queen of Rock.

In a catalog full of classics, it is very easy for quality songs to be obscured.

And we’re not talking about album cuts here. We’re talking about the singles that didn’t quite go all the way. The ones that didn’t crack the top 40. The ones didn’t quite leave an imprint on the public consciousness.

For Missy Elliott, one of such songs is “Teary Eyed,” the second single from her sixth album, The Cookbook. Written by the singer and Warryn Campbell (and produced by the latter), the song is about a relationship that comes to a (possibly) tragic end after an apparent infidelity. None of this is spelled out in the lyrics, but the video definitely fills the blanks in.

“Teary Eyed” underperformed in every market and missed the Billboard Hot 100 altogether, but to say that this isn’t solid song would be untrue. Lyrically and melodically, it is a strong showing and arguably one of the best R&B songs in Missy’s catalog.

In a statement made via Instagram, Beyoncé hinted at a new project that aims at carrying her mother’s legacy. Her mother, Tina Knowles, owned a salon in Houston back in the day.

The idea of Bey opening a salon seems highly unlikely, so our guess is that she’s releasing a hair care product. The statement was accompanied by a new pic where the icon’s fixing her hair in front of a mirror — with an array of products on the counter.

An LA County judge has denied Tory Lanez motion for new trial. Through his legal team, the Canandian cited errors in the first trial, and while appearing in court yesterday, made desperate pleas for the judge to not “ruin” on his life.

The singer (born Daystar Peterson) is facing up to 22 years in prison for shooting Megan Thee Stallion and is expected to be sentenced to a minimum of nine. His sentencing is scheduled for June 13.

Mind you, Robert De Niro turns 80 in August.

The news broke doing an interview with ET Canada, where the interviewer asked him about his six children, after which the Oscar winner corrected him by announcing that he recently welcome a seventh. One of his seven — his eldest, Drena De Niro — was adopted.

While the movie legend didn’t share any details about the birthdate or with whom he fathered the child, he is believed to be dating Tiffany Chen, a Tai Chi instructor he met on the set of 2015 movie The Intern (co-starring Anne Hathaway), where she played a martial arts instructor.

If you’ve been on social media this week, you’ve probably come across the horrific video where an ex-marine murdered an unhoused man who was having a mental health episode on an NYC subway. New York’s chief medical examiner has since ruled it a homicide. The ex-marine was never arrested.

Major media outlets have been quick to characterize the deceased, 30-year-old Jordan Neely, as being the aggressor, but that simply doesn’t line up with any of the accounts of what happened.

The media has also gone above and beyond to keep the killer’s identity a secret, but he has now been identified as 24-year-old Daniel Penny. And according to new reports, he has retained defense attorney Thomas Kenniff, a Republican who lost the Manhattan DA election to Alvin Bragg.

Mya’s self-titled debut album recently turned 25, so let’s take a look back at where it all began.

In February of ’98, the DC native dropped her very first single, “It’s All About Me,” a duet with labelmate Sisqo. The song, co-written by Darryl Pearson and the Dru Hill frontman, is a top-of-the-line late ’90s slow jam, complete with layered vocals, a thumping beat, and ad libs for days.

Much like the song, the video for “It’s All About Me” is a wondrous glimpse into the late ’90s, when people weren’t afraid to hit a boom kack to a mid-tempo track — all while dressed in a baggy jumpsuits. The dance moves in this particular video were actually choreographed by Mya, who studied various dance styles as a child.

“It’s All About Me” would go on to peak at No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
