The watches include a $55,000 piece and two $14,000 pieces, according to TMZ, who posted a picture of Johnny's itemized bill to Maybach Group. With tax, the purchase totaled $89,847.50. Johnny's claims they delivered the jewelry to Ross, but the rapper hasn't yet forked over the cash. Ross has not yet made a statement on the matter.

Ross' next album, Mastermind, is expected this year.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
