In light of recent events with the STUPIDITY OF “AMERICA” VOTING OFF Brandy from DWTS, I decided to post a semi new song of hers that many of you may not have heard. It’s called “I Can’t Wait” also known as “This Song”. At any rate, I love it, I hope it’s apart of her new album. I felt the need to post something positive about Brandy as I know how much that DWTS contest meant to her and her fans (me included). But the most tragic thing about it all is that Brandy was one of the HIGHEST SCORING contestants on there, so “America” really doesn’t want to see her win? Or was that a judgement call from the producers and judges themselves? I can’t believe she wouldn’t even make the finals. That don’t sound right! Oh shoot this post was suppose to be about the song.

R&B diva Keri Hilson’s video for “Pretty Girl Rock” has just premiered from her second album, ‘No Boys Allowed’ due in stores Dec. 21. I must say Keri Hilson looks STUNNING! In the Joeseph Kahn directed video, Keri pays homage to the great singers/performers before her; Janet, TLC, Diana Ross, Donna Summer are just some of whom she pays homage. I love how Keri is trying different things. It took me a minute to get into the song “Pretty Girl Rock”, but this video and her beauty, inside and out, has won me over. Take a look at the video below after the jump! Read the full story
R&B crooner El DeBarge and Hip Hop’s first lady Faith Evans, team up for this wonderfully done duet called “Lay With You”, said to be the off El DeBarge’s album ‘Second Chance’. No word if this is the first single or even a single at all. But if you ask me, I think it should be and would do great for him to break back out on the scene with this.Faith just released her latest LP and Elcould piggy back off her success and vise versa by targeting some of her market(s) as well! The song is fun and flirty; reminds me of the ‘honeymoon’ stage of dating someone, where you don’t want to let them go anywhere, you always want them around, you always want to talk to them, and enjoy them all day everyday, LOVE! El delivers his signature vocals while going into his higher range; he sounds just like he did back in the day! Faith is not one to disappoint either as she is holding her own and she, too, delivers her signature vocals! It’s crazy how these two have been able to keep their vocals intact for years while so many have taken their gifts for granted i.e. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey (on certain days LOL), etc. Take a listen and go off!!!!!!!
I CANNOT get enough of this girl! Maybe because she is the spawn of two of my idols, Will and Jada Smith, and thus fuels my crazy notion that two GREAT people coming together can and WILL make GREAT, GREATNESS!!! And not to mention that she is on her hussle at 9 DAMN YEARS OLD!!!! I love it. Ciara can’t even get her label to set a date for her album and here is Willow getting remixs to the ONE SONG she has out, a video release date, and pretty soon I bet she’ll be releasing a statement as to when her album will drop! How you like that?! Willow’s video for “Whip My Hair” will premiere next week via BET’s, 106 & Park, and y’all better hold down your lacefronts, wigs, and removable track pieces worldwide, ’cause she is SNATCHING AND WHIPPING THEM OFF!!!!! I, for one, will be tuning in! Will you?
Ok forgive me if I do not jump for joy and relief that R&B singer, Ciara, is finally getting it together but damn! GIRL! Get your management TOGETHER! #TakeNotesFromRihanna… With that said, Ciara annoucned on her Ustream last night that she is, in fact, releasing her SERIAL delayed album ‘Basic Instinct’ on December 14th! We can all say ‘Yaaaay’, right? Well here’s hoping that the “Queen of Dance”, as her fans now call her, can pull it together and dance sing her way back onto the charts and into the hearts of her fans worldwide. She’s still cute though. Get into that pose! Chuckles…
Where to begin? Okay, well, apparently R&B singer Lloyd, decided to show off his vocal chops in this song, “Lay It Down” and whislt he failed. I’m sorry. The song was produced by none other than Polow Da Don. The track comes from his fourth studio album, ‘King of Hearts’ and has the makings off a great song, IN THE BEGINNING! But as the instrumentals continue and Lloyd starts singing, one can only have a “WTF” moment as Lloyd gets louder and LOUDER, almost to the point where you HAVE TO TURN IT OFF! Now, I know this sounds like I’m hating, which I am, but not on Lloyd, just his voice on this TRACK! I love Lloyd’s old material, “Get It Shawty” and “Southside” but with time I know one must adapt and try new things but some things are better left to those that can TRULY adapt. At any rate, the video was nice….? And he is coming into his new look rather well! Kudos for that! The club-like setting video was shot by Mikey Finnigan. Take a look below!
Fresh off the release of her latest album “Somthing About Faith”, R&B and Hip Hop’s First Lady Faith Evans, proves she is no lip singer. She performs some of her classic hits such as: “Soon As I Get Home”, “Never Gonna Let You Go”,“I Love You”, “You Used To Love Me”,and “Love Like This” Tuesday night at BB Kings. She is one artist who has always delievered great vocals live time and time again. Faith gave her all and everything on stage with some much needed swagger as well! No word or video of her performing any of her new songs just yet though. Take a look at some of the perfomances below.
R&B Diva Faith Evans‘ song “Can’t Stay Away” feat. Keyshia Cole surfaced today. Sadly, the buzz around this song is so flat and dry that it makes us fear for what her album sales will do. Her album “Something About Faith” is set to be released next Tuesday. In spite of all that, we believe this is not the mastered version of the song as Keyshia sounds so muted, off key, and just not right on this track that we CANNOT take this serious! Take a listen. Thoughts?
