Music Feed: R&Beef Revisited

Beef is a slang that has become associated with feuds between musicians. The word was very synonymous in Hip Hop circles at one time. Nowadays the "B" in R&B now means "beef" and not "blues". Well in some cases but not many. Anyway I did a post like this awhile ago. This new list I conjured up takes a look at recent beefs in recent years. All the info is to the best of my knowledge. Check it out!

Joe vs. R. Kelly
While promoting new album, "New Man", Joe claimed that R Kelly stifled his once budding career. Joe has never been a huge seller like R. Kelly but his former labelmate was out to get him. Ironically R Kelly produced Joe's hit single, "More & More".

Keyshia Cole vs. Mya
Mya was allegedly upset when Keyshia Cole(who was close friends with Mya) was a guest vocalist on Game's "Hold You Down" song. In the song Game pokes fun(or truthfully speaks) on his sexual relationship with Mya. If you recall Game mentioned Mya in his song "Dreams" and featured her in the video.

Usher vs. Jennifer Lopez
Producer Rich Harrison cut a song, "Ride" for Usher's "Confessions" album which didn't make the final cut but appeared on mixtapes. When the song was released, it was very similar to Jennifer Lopez's "Get Right" which contained the same lyrics in the bridge. Of course Usher cried like the huge baby he is and blamed JLO. He should of blamed Rich Harrison though.

Ne-Yo vs. Trey Songz

These two R&B stars had a minor beef when Ne-Yo called out Trey Songz for charging fans to take a picture with him. The beef has since been mended.

Ne-Yo vs. R Kelly
It is safe to assume that R. Kelly is a jealous person. When Ne-Yo became the star act in Kelly's headlining tour, R. Kelly kicked him off his tour. Ne-Yo responded by hitting the radio and mixtape circut dissing Kelly and telling his side of the story.

Sisqo vs. Usher vs. R. Kelly
At the height of his solo career Sisqo called out Usher and R. Kelly on their singing abilities. Usher later retorted via BET's "106 & Park" and Kelly on his song, "Stop".

Album Spotlight: Ne-Yo - In My Own Words

It's probably starting to look like a Ne-Yo fan site here with all the recent posts mentioning him; but I assure you it is not. The hype behind Ne-Yo's debut album; "In My Own Words" reached a fever pitch thanks to the debut single; "So Sick". The song was a huge success including its singles; "Sexy Love", "When Ur Mad" and more.

Ne-Yo definitely plays up on his buzz by writing and producing many of the tracks. This album would lead to Ne-Yo being a very sought after songwriter and producer. It is the album of his I favor the most. I think as he progressed as an artist; I somewhat lost interest.

*UPDATED* Music Feed: Janet Jackson's Most Sexualized Songs: REVISITED

You all, my readers, my visitors; my supporters; you have made this post one of the most successful posts on my blog. I kept wondering what it was about this post, that made it so successful; one word: JANET! The fact that Janet has new music on the way makes this post even more of a hot topic. As its been said before, no one sings about sex quite like Janet Jackson. Her songs, ooze with the right amount of sexuality perfect for a night of steamy sex. Take a look back at a number of songs Janet is responsible for delivering her in trademark breathy delivery. I took the liberty of adding a few other songs that didn't make the list before. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in my mouth". By then you should already know what this song is about. Janet sings about the "warmth" of her mouth and how she pleases her lover; Jermaine Dupri at the time. This is a very sensual song and it is one of the most explicit Janet has ever recorded …

Album Spotlight: Beyonce - Dangerously In Love

If you were in love in 2003, it wasn't official unless you were living "Dangerously In Love". It was the title of Beyonce's 2003 breakthrough solo album which spawned the singles, "Crazy In Love" featuring Jay-Z, "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul, "Me, Myself, and I", and the title track. The album would serve as a precursor of what was to come from this bonafide superstar. Unlike her later albums, "Dangerously" was deep-rooted in southern soul and R&B melodies. This album also showed a more gentler, sultry, and relaxed(voice wise) Beyonce. As opposed to the last few years her style has been more abrasive and in your face. Never one to be outdone, Beyonce was set to release a follow-up to this album titled, "Dangerously In Love 2" featuring unreleased songs but it didn't happen. From the seductive "Speechless" to the cautionary tale of "Me, Myself, and I", "Dangerously In Love" is m…
