Dionne Warwick’s contributions to music will be celebrated at Urban One Honors. Warwick, who is considered one of the greatest artists of all time, has sold over 100 million records in her time. She has also been inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame and reigns supreme as one of the most charted vocalists of all time. Warwick’s continues to stay relevant as her music transcends generations. Doja Cat recently sampled Warwick’s classic “Walk On By” on her hit song “Paint The Town Red.”

During an interview on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Warwick called it “Amazing,” and revealed her her granddaughter informed her about it. While Warwick didn’t know who Doja Cat was at first, wished Doja’s interpolation success. “I hope ‘Walk On By’ is as good for her as it has been for me.”

Chloe Baile had a banner year, in 2023, with the release of her debut album In Pieces including the four singles “Have Mercy,” “Treat Me,” “Surprise,” and “For the Night.” The buxom beauty embarked on her first headline tour shortly after the release of her album and built her fanbase in local markets while continuing to make headlines daily for her acting roles, bangin’ body, dating life, and everything in between.
