Ashanti Proves She Can Defy Gravity

With the holidays around the corner, there is such a huge overflow of music that hits the market. It is literally hard to keep up with every album that is coming out within the next two months. Anyway here is the latest album cover and tracklisting from Anthony Hamilton. The new album is lead by first single, "Cool" featuring David Banner. I can remember when Anthony Hamilton released his debut album there was a huge buzz surrounding him then. I haven't seen much promotion for this new album(yet) but hopefully that will change within the next month or two.

T.I. Gives Us A Double Dose

Image
There is always a light at the end of the tunnel. Last year Mya's long awaited, "Liberation" album was shelved in the US. The album fortunately had a launch overseas where it eventually leaked to the US. I don't even remember how the album sounded. By that time I was no longer interested. Now with a fresh new start Mya has signed to Manhattan Records. The artist will release her new album, "Sugar & Spice" on December 3. The album will only be released in Japan. Don't cry! The album will more than likely leak in the US. Check out the tracklisting below!

Never forgetting the legacy that exists between these duos their influence and impact on society is examined here. Check it out!

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
This is for serious old school folks only. A lot of new school folks may not know much about this
duo. Former labelmates and lovers found success in the early Motown days. Their songs would
later become anthems and torch songs. Their time together was short lived after singer Terrell
collapsed on stage during a performance. Ain't no mountain high enough!

Ludacris Unveils New Album Cover Art

Image
Ludacris returns with his new album, "Theater Of The Mind". The album will be in stores on December 9. The album is led by the single, "What Them Girls Like" feat Chris Brown & Sean Garrett. I'm not the biggest Ludacris fan but I will say he is one of the most talented and gifted lyricists of the new generation. I did like his last album, "Release Therapy" though.





Audio: Aretha Franklin - I Remember(Live)
The Queen of Soul herself is not one to be outdone. Proving Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" was not only suited for the likes of Mariah Carey, Aretha takes on Keyshia Cole's #1 hit, "I Remember". This is audio only but it is a slightly subdued version of the song but check it out!

Get an early preview of Keyshia Cole's new video, "Playa Cardz Right" from her upcoming album,"A Different Me" in stores December 16. The song is a grower to me. I didn't care for Keyshia's last album but I'm hoping the third one is better.

Has Jon B Been Sadly Forgotten?

Image
Check out the new album cover and tracklisting for Jon B's new album, "Helpless Romantic" in stores October 28. The album is led by first single, "Oh So Sexy" feat Paul Wall. I recently let my sister hear "So Sexy" and she loves it. She told me that a radio DJ in Milwaukee, WI(I believe) was asking what happened to Jon B. Stupid fool! As a radio DJ you should have some type of knowledge about what's coming out. How could he not know? The song was shipped to Urban radio sure enough or it wouldn't have debuted on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Tracks chart. Ok...I had to vent a little! Anyway most artists signed to indie labels have a lack of support. When you think about it though so does a lot of artists signed to major labels. A lot of labels just don't like to take the risk of spending tons of money to promote an artist when their album bombs. I think it is time the label starts putting renewed interest in their products.



1) Oh So Sexy…

Amerie Proves She Is Not A Distant Memory

Audio: Amerie - Memory
This is a demo supposedly recorded by Amerie for Cassie. Not too sure about it. It sounds like Amerie to an extent but the vocal is autotuned. The beat also sounds like something we would hear Amerie over. Check it out!

Pleasure P is one of the many artists nowadays where his songs leak by the dozen. Here is his latest song which I actually like. I assume his upcoming solo debut album will be released very soon.

Ms. Lindsay Lohan is known more for being a tabloid target than any singer or actress. The multi-talented star will release a new album on November 4. Reportedly the first single is produced by The Neptunes. Though there has been no promotion for the disc, it will more than likely be pushed back.


Music Biz:
Mariah Speaks Out!
Mariah Carey says that her husband, Nick Cannon, may be younger than her but that doesn’t mean he’simmature. Mariah says Cannon “doesn’t act (younger)” and she describes him as “really very intelligent"and "a very business-minded person” who is “also a lot of fun." Mariah also admits that she had secondthoughts about tying the knot with Cannon because her marriage to music mogul Tommy Mottola was a“disaster.”

R&B star Jaheim is set to put classic records like "Put That Woman First" and "Anything" to rest on a new disc entitled "Classic Jaheim Vol. 1." Slated for release Nov. 25, "Classic Jaheim Vol. 1" includes songs from the singer's four consecutive Top 3 albums and a bevy of Top 10 singles.Emerging in 2000, Jaheim struck a chord with music fans because of his ability to be tough and sensitive in his music, often in the same song. His gritty and powerful vocal style captivates music fans who crave edge, while his comforting, caressing baritone is equally seductive and appealing to listeners seeking love, hope and encouragement.

Anyway the new album, "Let It Rain" is in stores today. Due to the lack of promotion I can guess Montell is indie now.

After a year long effort into the making of what we thought Lil Kim’s album should be, it looks as though it will never happen.

Kim is a kool chick but she really does’nt know what she wants to do with her career. While working on this latest album, it was clear that Kim did’nt know the direction she wanted to go in. She wanted to work with this person, then
she didnt want to work with this person. She wanted to do this type of album, then she wanted to do another type of album. It was clear th…

Check out Slim's(of 112) new album cover. His new album will be in stores November 18. The album is led by single, "So Fly" feat Yung Joc. The album sports collaborations from Faith Evans, Slim Thug and many more.


I never thought any of the 112 members stood out. I know Slim was the lead artist but he was unlike many lead artists. He was very camera shy(to my knowledge)and not much was really known about him. I remember reading that he did have a few kids but that's it. Anyway some people were arguing that Slim should of took the shades off and showed his face. What do you think? While you think about that listen to Slim's 2nd single, "Good Lovin" feat and produced by Ryan Leslie.
