We're not even two full weeks into 2014, but the official confirmation that OutKast will headline two major festivals might be one of the biggest news stories of the year. But when one door opens, another closes. And this week The-Dream announced his departure from Def Jam, the label that catapulted him from songwriter and producer to artist.

What will Dream do next? Perhaps he can take inspiration from a bedroom music icon Keith Sweat. This week, the R&B elder statesman announced he'd be hosting a sexy high seas jaunt (in conjunction with Grown and Sexy Cruises, natch) that includes, among many other salacious activities, a male auction.

All that and more in What The Hell Just Happened In Music This Week?
