Music Feed: When Good Girls Go Bad

Ray J has a song from his last album, "All I Feel" called "Good Girl Gone Bad". The chorus says 'When a good good girl goes bad, she's gone forever...". True words indeed.

These ladies have no problem being bad and you can bet it was a man who drove half of them, if not all to their current 'bad' status!

Toni Braxton - The video for Toni's "Your Makin' Me High" raised more than a few eyebrows. What was more hair-raising was the lyrics which were about masturbation.

Christina Milian - Not content on her wholesome good girl image, Christina called on singer/songwriter Teedra Moses to pen the racy hit single,"Dip it Low". The video was even more racy with Christina dancing in lingerie and froliquing in paint. Gotta love it!

Brandy - Brandy's personal life has overshadowed her music in recent years. With 2004's "Afrodisiac" Brandy was brutally honest. Admitting to adulterous affairs and using the word '…

The-Dream feat Kanye West - Walkin On The Moon (Video)

I was so excited about The-Dream's new album and I was very disappointed. That's why I don't like to get too excited about things even music. "Walkin" has gotten a lot of buzz online but its just an okay song to me.

Fabolous feat The Dream - Throw It In The Bag (Video)

Fabolous hits us with a double whammy of new videos. The second one you can check out below this. Fab is keeping it in the family by working with The-Dream and Jeremih. I'm not mad at him though. I'm sure those collabos are easier to come by being they are all label mates.

Fabolous feat Jeremih - It's My Time (Video)

My friend and I were just watching this video earlier. He said that he doesn't believe Fab as a rapper. He didn't feel the passion in this clip. He felt that he could do him one better! Ha! He probably could though. I don't have anything against Fab though. He is cool with me.

So when he discovered what Lady Gaga was actually singing about on "Poker Face," he was attracted to the record. Then when he saw her perform a different version of the song on the Internet, he was hooked. Kanye sampled the song for Kid Cudi's next single, "I Make Her Say," which was formerly titled "I Poke Her Face." "It's a single for Cudi," Kanye explained. "Due to radio, the name of the song is called, 'I Make Her Say.'Jay-Z Moves To Sony?

Kanye West feat. Rihanna - Paranoid (Video)

This video has been talked about and in the works for a minute. Rihanna makes a cameo in this video but after awhile it starts to look like her own video. There are reports that suggest that Kanye and Rihanna are a couple now. What happened to Amber Rose?(Kanye's current girlfriend?) Better yet what about Keri Hilson?(seem to have a type of chemistry when they appear in videos together or in interviews).

Eve Plans New Album!
Rapper & fashion icon Eve has revealed via Twitter that her long awaited fourth studio album "Flirt" will drop this October. Originally titled "Here I Am" and set for release back in 2007, the album suffered many setbacks which eventually caused Eve to part with label Aftermath and find a new home with Geffen, which included a total reworking of the album. Eve has revealed via her Twitter that the album will see a "big collabo will change female Hip-Hop."Eve has been talking about this album now for ages. When she released "Tambourine" a few years ago she should of just ran with that. The single did moderately well enough to put her album out behind but obviously not good enough for her label.

Lil' Wayne's Rebirth Not Ready To Be Born

Music Biz:
Lil' Wayne Pushed Back!
One month after it was reported that Lil Wayne’s new album Rebirth was pushed back to June, has learned that the project has been moved once again. Reports came out today that the disc was moved, and a label rep has confirmed that the experimental album will now come out sometime in July. It is unclear if the several tracks that have leaked on the net will be included on the CD, like “Politics” with Gudda Gudda or “Spit In Your Face” with Cash Money artist Kevin Rudolf.They might as well go ahead and shelved this album. It really seems like this is what it will eventually come to.

Usher Reveals New Album Title!
Mariah Carey is not the only one making album announcements. Usher also revealed the title of his new album on Wednesday.The R&B heartthrob has titled his sixth studio effort Monster. It will be released this fall, according to a statement from his publicist. Usher has collaborated with Jermaine Dupri and Ne-Yo on Monster, the follow-up to 2008’s platinum-selling Here I Stand.The new album title is sorta reminding me of "Thriller". Let's hope this "Monster" is as monster as it claims to be. A lot of people were let down with "Here I Stand" which I thought was a really good album in my opinion. No it wasn't "Confessions" but it represented where Usher was at that time of his life.

Last week saw the release of naked pictures of Rihanna and Cassie. Later on there were semi nude pictures of Lenny Kravitz leaked out but by the singer himself. Wow! Based on all that activity I came up with poll for "What artist would you like to see naked?". I will be honest when I came up with the artists to include, I went somewhat by popularity. I forgot the fact that we did see Ciara somewhat nude on Vibe last year. Now for the results. No surprise that Beyonce came in at #1 with 29% of the vote. Following closely behind was Keri Hilson with 23%. My friend was wondering who would want to see Keri Hilson naked. (No offense to anyone who does). He was joking though.

Yung Joc is going after the infamous career-ending Diddy and Bad Boy Records. He might be the only one in the history of Bad Boy to actually take Diddy to court over money and his music. The multi-platinum rap star alleges that Block Ent/Bad Boy hasn’t offered any label support since 2007. Yung Joc went on to make shocking claims about the inner dealings of Block Ent. According to Joc, he’s paid for his own public relations, claims to not be receiving his advance money for his projects, alleges that Block has used advances for other projects, and even makes shocking claims regarding his former management company 9196.Well, well this is pretty surprising. I think this is just as surprising as Yung Joc making last year's list of Forbes Top Selling rappers.
