The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, better known as ASCAP, held their 26th annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday. Among the honorees was Usher, who was presented with the Golden Note Award, which was presented to him by Diddy, who mentored a young Usher and executive produced the singer's first album.

The Golden Note Award is presented to songwriters, composers and artists who have achieved "extraordinary career milestones." Diddy received it in 1998 and, at that time, only 7 people had been honored previously. Revolt TV has footage from the event.

Vibe has an interview with Diddy and they discuss the type of programming you can expect from Revolt TV, what Kanye West's new album means to him and the pride and respect that he and Jay-Z have for each other.

Now you are doing things that create for others, but what motivates you and guys like Jay-Z?

Right now Iím at an all time high of just being a visionary and figuring (it) out. The money thing, Iím just being honest, that doesnít motivate me. Iím passed that. Doing things that are going to change the world and make life better for our kids and change the way weíre perceived. Iím out here in Cannes speaking in front of 2,000 people, getting a standing ovation just speaking about who we are and being unapologetic about it, itís just changing the game. Next year this festival will have more people that look like us and they will understand their power.

While I was out here I called Jay and me and him been talking back and forth about the network and about his deal and how proud we were of each other. Weíre actually changing together the business model of the music industry. As far as our power, you can see the power that we have, not me and Jay-Z, the power that we have as a culture that Samsung now is going to give Apple a run for its money. People actually believe and we believe in our leaders in hip-hop. What they say is cool and what they say is next and we recognized that what Samsung is doing is moving forward. We were like ďHey man, we may need to give this Galaxy joint a chanceĒ and thatís a lot of power, man.

Janelle MonŠe covers the June 15 issue of Billboard magazine. The cover story serves as a preview to her upcoming album, "The Electric Lady," due in September.

The album, which was co-produced with frequent MonŠe collaborators Deep Cotton and Roman GianArthur, will feature contributions from Prince and Miguel.

"I had a chance to produce an icon," MonŠe told Billboard about her song with Prince. "It's not every day that he collaborates. I'm honored and humbled that he trusted me. He is forever my friend, and I am forever indebted. I can't say too much else about it."

Thought she declined to give the name of the song, the article does list a few song titles, including "Dorothy Dandridge Eyes" (which Billboard lists as a jazz-influenced track), "Dance Apocalyptic" (pop-punk), "Victory" (gospel) and "Primetime" ("woozy, sensual vocal ballads," writes the cover story's author).

"Primetime" is the song that will feature Miguel and it includes an interpolation of the Pixes' "Where Is My Mind?" Check out the Billboard cover below.
