Neyo: Beautiful Monster

The King of the pen, Ne-Yo has released his new single entitled “Beautiful Monster” from his upcoming album that’s due out in September. The uptempo melody reminds me of “Billie Jean” by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson and some electronica music all in one mixture. To me, it’s different from his usual R&B/Pop songs and personally, I kind of like it. One thing about Ne-yo, he never seems to disappoint his fans with his new music. He’s surely a risk taker.. I can see this blasting my ear drums on the radio soon.

Throwback Tuesday: Bad Boy R&B Edition!

You can say what you want about Sean Combs, Diddy, P.Diddy, Puff, Puff Daddy and his various aliases , but HE IS a business mogul! You can hate him all you want, but his business ethics are disgusting. I love it!!! However, I did wish that he did keep his R&B raster of Faith Evans, Carl Thomas, Total, 112, Cherri Dennis..ect, but we don’t know what happened behind closed doors between him or them and honestly, I don’t want to seem negative from either perspective going into detail. We only have a slight idea about what went on, right?! Everybody has a chance of returning… God willing. If it’s for you, no forces of darkness can prevail. Remember that. Check the vault below!

Faith Evans: Soon as I get home (1995)

Carl Thomas: I wish (1999)

Total: What about us (1996-7)

Cherri Dennis: I love you (2006)

112:  Only you (1996)

And in other news… The Bajan pop singer, Rihanna has given the U.S. “Rockstar 101” as her fourth single from her current album Rated R. I was kind of anticipating for Te amo, but Europe has that. *shrug* Oh well. Peep out the video below:

I’ll keep my opinions to myself… Love the song though.

Lyfe Jennings: Statistics

RULE #1
Don’t be a booty call
If he don’t respect you girl he gon’ forget you girl
RULE #2
If he’s in a relationship
If he will cheat on her that means he will cheat on you
RULE #3
Tell him that you’re celibate
And if he wants some of your goodies he gon’ have to work for it
RULE #4
Be the person you wanna find
Don’t be a nickel out here lookin’ for a dime

I think females need to listen to the lyrics of this song. It’s not about the percentages, however some women need to take more pride within themselves. This is a dog eat dog world, but you have to love yourself and not settle for less because it’ll end up being the worst transition in life…

Alicia Keys: Un-thinkable (im ready) official video

[YouTube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhuGQUZJot8&feature=fvsr]

Among several major leaks that surfaced the Internet, Alicia Keys third single entitled “Un-thinkable (I’m ready)” from her “Elements of freedom” album has leaked various websites.

The song actually describes a tale of two people falling for one another throughout different periods of times, yet between their family members and the time it was taking place with racial profiling, their relationship came to a slight halt. Nevertheless, Alicia Keys and her dapper love interest, didnt allow that to stop what they felt for each other. I think it’s a classic revised Romeo and Juliet! Love it 🙂

Lena Horne Passes..

Lena Horne passed away on May 9th, 2010 at New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. She was survived by her grandchildren Teddy and Lena Jones. She was best recognized for her stunning beauty, her sultry voice and her amazing acting skills throughout the 1930’s – 1990’s and showed her political values by joining in the civil rights movement in 1941.

Lena Mary Calhoun Horne became one of the founding pioneers for African-Americans and other multi-racial individuals in the music and film industry. She was known for becoming one of the few fortunate ethnic entertainers to ever gain a long term contract with MGM, being a political activist and a phenomenal jazz singer who opened gates by performing with the majority at that time. She will be truly missed.

I’m not alone, I’m free. I no longer have to be a credit, I don’t have to be a symbol to anybody; I don’t have to be a first to anybody

Musiq Soulchild: Silky Soul (A tribute to Marvin Gaye)

I don’t have the exact words to say about this rendition the “soul king” has done. I absolutely love it! You know how other artists attempts to do a classic and either it doesn’t have originality, they don’t do a good job or it’s missing an element the original person did. Musiq (as usual) added his own creative flavor to the mix and came out amazing! He never seems to disappoint me at all! I cannot wait for his album to come.
