Throwback Video: Human Leauge - Human

I can't sit here and say I know a whole lot about Human League. I know them primarily for their hit, "Human" produced by Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. This is a song I like to play every once in awhile. Lately its been in my head quite a bit which is the reasoning for it being tonight's throwback video! Enjoy!


Beyonces Graces Cover of Ebony Magazine

Image
Nearly 3 months after the initial release of her latest album, "I Am...Sasha Fierce", Beyonce is still gracing magazine covers left and right. Check her out as she gives a soul sister esque pose on the latest issue of Ebony magazine. In the article the singer opens up more about her high-profile marriage to Jay-Z, her career, and a whole lot more. I have noticed that with every new intereview Beyonce tends to reveal more about her once secret relationship(and marriage) to Jay-Z. I hope all is as well as she portrays it to be. There have been stories about Jay-Z kicking it with Kim Karadashian's sister, Khloe Karadashian.

Rapper Jadakiss will release his new album, "The Last Kiss" on April 7. The album was originally scheduled to be released on March 10. The album features the singles, "By My Side" featuring Ne-Yo and the new single, "Can't Stop Me". As one of my favorite rappers I am looking forward to this new album. There are so many ne…

Keri Hilson Unveils Her Debut Album Details

Keri Hilson is currently burning up the charts with her hit single, "Turnin Me On" featuring Lil' Wayne. Her oft-delayed album, "In A Perfect World" will be in stores March 24. Awhile back I posted the albums cover art and now courtesy of Amazon I have the albums official tracklisting. You can check it out below!
1. Intro
2. Turnin Me On ft. Lil Wayne
3. Get Your Money Up ft. Keyshia Cole & Trina
4. Return The Favor ft. Timbaland
5. Knock You Down ft. Neyo
6. Slow Dance
7. Make Love
8. Intuition
9. How Does It Feel
10. Hey Girl ft. T-Pain & Lil Jon
11. Alienated
12. Tell Him the Truth
13. Change Me ft. Akon
14. Energy
15. Where Did He Go

Looking at this tracklisting I believe most of these songs have leaked prior to the albums release. That's not a huge surprise though. I'm sure some of these songs will be somewhat modified to appear somewhat new to those who have heard them before.

Omarion has been pretty quiet lately but that is about to change! A new song has…

Ne-Yo, Ruben Studdard Offer Up New Music

There is never a shortage of new music as far as Ne-Yo is concerned. There is always a new song leaking from this singer/songwriter. Check out his newest leaked track!
Audio: Ne-Yo - Waiting





Former American Idol winner Ruben Studdard returns with his upcoming Sony debut album. Check out Ruben's first single produced by Stargate and written by Ne-Yo. If Ruben is fishing for a hit with this new song, you don't usually go wrong with this coveted trio!
Audio: Ruben Studdard - Together




You can't get any hotter than The-Dream from a production standpoint(Single Ladies...anyone)and now an artist. His new single, "Rockin That Thang" is #3 on the R&B charts and his new album, "Love vs Money" will be in stores March 10. Check out The-Dream as takes viewers behind the scene of his album photoshoot.

Pleasure P Joins Yung Joc On New Track

Yung Joc returns to the scene with a new track featuing Pleasure P. Check it out! Joc's new album, "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood" will be in stores soon.
Audio: Yung Joc feat Pleasure P - Meet Me At The Bar



I'm actually liking this track. It's real smooth and has a jazzy vibe to it. Yung Joc hits us with another new track! This time the southern rapper is joined by Jody Breeze on this smooth, laid-back cut.
Audio: Yung Joc feat Jody Breeze - Thug Love




You can currently catch Day 26 on their newest season of the never-ending reality show, "Making The Band". This season we see the guys working on their second album. The bands' future is also in jeopardy which comes as no surprise. I'm starting to think Bad Boy artists are just cursed.........by Diddy! I have a new track from the guys known as Day 26. Check it out!

Christina Milian Plans Second Single

Christina Milian is hard at work on her new album, "Dream In Color" which hits stores real soon. Her album's first single, "Us Against The World" didn't have much of an impact so she is moving forward with second single, "Zipper" produced by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart. The two producers have a huge hand in shaping up the disc's sound. Let's hope this disc is hot and gets the attention it deserves.

You can't deny how much Trina grinds! She is always putting out new music or jumping on the latest remix to one of the country's hottest songs. Her latest features are certainly no exception. Check it out!
Audio: GS Boys feat Trina - Stanky Leg Remix





Jennifer Lopez is returning to the music scene this year with two albums, a Greatest Hits package a new full-length studio album. Where this new song comes from is anyones guess but I figure in the coming days we will know for sure. Check out the newly leaked single from Jennifer Lopez! Produc…

Flo Rida Dominates With New Single

Image
Producer/rapper Ron Browz is quickly making a name for himself. He appears on Jim Jones' hit, "Pop Champagne" and now his own single, "Jumpin" which is rapidly climbing up the charts. Browz first album, "Ether Boy" will be in stores soon. Looking at the album cover, Browz somewhat reminds me of producer Bryan Michael Cox.


Flo Rida returns to the scene with "R.O.O.T.S" and his recent #1 smash, "Right Round". With his first single going to #1 in its first week there is no doubt that Flo Rida is ready to dominate the singles chart all over again.


With her recently released video for "Us Against The World", Christina Milian is back on the scene with a new album, "Dream In Color" and new record label, MySpace Records/Radio Killa. Christina appears on the newest issue of King Magazine. Check out the behind the scenes footage as Christina sexes it up for the camera.

The-Dream Springs Yet Another Leak

Image
With current single, "Never Ever" currently rising up the charts, Ciara shows no signs of slowing down. The singer is already filming the follow-up video with her newly leaked single, "Love and Sex and Magic" featuring Justin Timberlake. The song which was recorded by Justin Timberlake now features Ciara and is one of the most talked about leaked tracks in a long time. This promo picture you see also serves as the cover of the newest single. It just so happens that Ciara and Justin Timberlake and oddly enough Janet Jackson are all managed by the same manager, Johnny Wright.

The-Dream's "Love vs Money" album is nearing its release date so album tracks are starting left and right. I'm happy and then again I'm not happy. It does kind of spoil the surprise but oh well. I am really excited for his new album. Check out yet another track from this producer extraordinaire!
Audio: The-Dream - Sweat It Out



Listening to this song reminds me of something R. …

Justin Timberlake Joins Ciara On New Single

Ciara is ready to return to the music scene with her 3rd album, "Fantasy Ride". The album is set to be released on April 7. The album is led by the singles, "Go Girl" featuring T-Pain and "Love and Sex and Magic" featuring Justin Timberlake. You can hear the latter song here today! Check it out!
Audio: Ciara feat Justin Timberlake - Love and Sex and Magic



I'm really liking this song and it makes me very excited for the new album. The last few leaks I've heard from Ciara restored my hope in this album. I was very worried about this album before. A video for this song is currently being shot! I'm sure this will be very interesting.

The-Dream is definitely one of the hottest producers in the game right now. He is also slowly becoming one of the hottest artists in the game(in my opinion). He is set to release his new album, "Love vs Money" on March 3. I have an exclusive track for you all today from Dream that features pal Kanye West. Chec…

VH1's newest reality star Ray J has been riding high with his hit TV show, "For the Love Of Ray J". The show which airs Monday nights on VH1 now has a soundtrack. The first single is "Sex In Da Rain". You can check it out below!
Audio: Ray J feat Shorty Mack - Sex In Da Rain




Not one to be outdone, Kanye West releases one of my favorite tracks, "Welcome To Heartbreak" from his platinum, '808s and Heartbreak" album. The song features Kid Cudi who is making a name for himself on his recently released single, "Day N Nite". Check out the new video!

The-Dream Readies 'Love vs Money' Album

One album I'm really looking forward to this year is The-Dream's Love vs Money. The album contains one of my favorite songs right now, "Rockin That Thang". It also features Mariah on the second single, "My Love". Kanye West appears on "Walkin On The Moon" and more. Below you can check out the new and improved track listing. I remember I posted it a few days ago but I can't remember if this is the same one or not. I don't usually like to get too excited over an album from an artist(that is not exactly my favorite) but I can't help it!
1. Rockin' That Thang
2. Walkin' On The Moon featuring Kanye West
3. My Love featuring Mariah Carey
4. Put It Down

It seems like every since former Danity Kane member Aubrey O' Day's Playboy magazine cover came out,every member has been scrambling to put out some type of new music or video. Certainly not one to be left out the bunch, D. Woods(Aubrey's ace boon coon in Danity Kane) releases a new track!
Audio: D. Woods - On My Side




Ciara just can't catch a break! So much new music has leaked from her within the last few months its simply ridiculous. It is my guess that the original "Fantasy Ride" album was leaked long ago but not as a complete album just as single tracks. Whether or not those leaked tracks including this new snippet will make the fin…

Poll: What singer best captures the essence of Michael Jackson?

Over the years Michael Jackson's music has been overshadowed by his bizarre behavior. There are still a few of us who do appreciate Michael and his musicianship. Whenever a new artist hits the scene, they are automatically compared to another artist. Sometimes this is done to help us differentiate artists or see where they are coming from musically. Consider Michael Jackson as one of the most influential artists in music history. His style, his dance moves, and his music are often emulated by the artists mentioned in the poll below. So what do you think best captures the essence of Michael Jackson? When I say 'essence of Michael Jackson', who reminds you the mots of Michael musically and not personally. Who could be the next 'king of pop' or who even 'dare we say it' hold a candle to the one and true 'king of pop' known as Michael Jackson!

D. Woods of Danity Kane Releases Valentine Video

D. Woods fomerly of Danity Kane stars in this hilarious take on the loneliness and dread many of us faced on Valentine's Day!




Gold star for D. Woods! It's nice to see her doing something to keep her name out there. What better avenue than YouTube than to do it? Now let's see what she will cook up for us in the realm of music.

Lloyd hits us with a double whammy of new music. The singer had been pretty quiet since the ill-fated release of Lessons Of Love. While the album didn't exactly set the charts on fire, it was a really good album in my opinion. Now Lloyd has released two new tracks entitled Party Girl and Put U Down!







Music Feed: That's So Gay

Image
Hello all! I bring to you another 'music feed'. I truly love doing these. Sometimes though its hard for me to come up with a topic to discuss. Well I finally came up with a topic worth discussing. The fact whether a star is gay or not is always a big topic. Some people say who cares but those are the ones who care just as much. No I don't care about an artist's sexuality. I mean at the end of the day I only care about their music. Since I'm a self-proclaimed music addict, it doesn't matter but its always interesting to inquire or wonder. The aforementioned artists below have been hit with the gay rumors. Now whether or not they are truly gay remains a mystery. Below you will find out exactly how and why these the gay rumors started! Enjoy!

Ne-Yo
The gay rumors started when an old video leaked out of Ne-Yo sporting an orange wig during a performance at
the Apollo Theater. At the time Ne-Yo's stage name was 'Go-Go'. That says a lot huh? Ne-Yo has denied …

Kanye West Plans Third Single With Lil' Wayne

Image
The-Dream finally unveils the cover art for his upcoming album, "Love vs Money" in stores March 10. The album features the hit single, "Rockin That Thang". It also features the Mariah Carey-assisted, "My Love" which is the album's 2nd single. I'm actually looking for to this album.

Jennifer Hudson is moving forward with her career as she prepares her 3rd single, "Pocketbook" featuring Ludacris. Jen recently released the video to her 2nd single, "If This Isn't Love". I heard Jen's album was being re-released but I'm not sure at this point.

Kanye West shows no signs of slowing down with his recently platinum certified, "808s & Heartbreak". The Lil' Wayne-assisted, "See You In My Nightmares" is the album's 3rd single. I remember "Paranoid" being the 3rd single but it looks like Kanye had a change of heart.

Ciara Gets New Release Date For Album

Image
In My Own Words:
Ciara's oft-delayed, "Fantasy Ride" album has a new release date of April 7. The album is led by the new single, "Never Ever" featuring Young Jeezy. Let's hope this release date sticks!

Trina's newest studio album, "Amazing" isn't due in stores til later this year but Trina is hitting us with another album. Along with label mate Qwote(who appears on "Phone Sexx" with Trina on her "Still Da Baddest" album and also appears here), Trina sets out to make a 'best of both worlds' esque album complete with duets, unreleased tracks, and remixes. The album will be released on February 24. You can basically chop this album up as a precursor to "Amazing". Below you can check out the track listing.



1. Shawty It's Your Booty
2. Formula
3. One More Time

Despite rampant speculation to the contrary, Live Nation has not signed a multi-rights or long term deal with Janet Jackson, according to a company spokesperson.Multiple online reports in the past few days have stated that Jackson has likely followed the course recently taken by established stars such as Madonna, U2 and Jay-Z and signed a 360-deal with Live Nation Artists."We have not signed a deal with Janet, nor are we currently in discussions with the artist," says John Vlautin, senior VP of communications for Live Nation.

Aubrey O'Day Graces Playboy Magazine

Image
One of the most talked about magazine covers in a long while is former Danity Kane front woman Aubrey O'Day's Playboy cover. The talk of the cover has been a big thing for a while, and it's finally here! The world famous cover is photographed by Markus Klinko[who did Beyonce's "Dangerously In Love" album cover]. Aubrey is giving me Mariah on this cover. I think the cover is just alright. I think it could of been a whole lot better but oh well.

In My Own Words:
The baddest bitch herself, Trina is set to return with a new untitled single said to feature Lady GaGa. Lady GaGa is currently ruling the airwaves with her #1 pop single, "Just Dance". The upcoming single is said to be produced by Jim Jonsin, who produced for Trina before. The new album, "Amazin'" will be in stores later this year. I'm really excited about a new Trina album. "Still da Baddest" was really hot so I hope she can follow up on that. Since I've always …

Kanye West Sounds Off On His Sexuality

In My Own Words:
So Kanye West is back to saying he's not gay! I think you should just say it once and leave it at that. He along with Ne-Yo keep feeling the need to defend themselves every time. Personally I never thought Kanye West way gay anyway. Now as far as some other musicians are concerned that's a different story but I won't go there.

I am wondering when we are going to get a new Monica album. Monica's "Still Standing" was originally scheduled to be released at the end of the last year. A few snippets of songs have leaked but nothing concrete except the title track which features Ludacris. Anyway I appreciate the fact that Monica is taking her time with the new album. I just hope her album doesn't turn out like Mariah's "E=MC2". What I mean by that statement is Mariah pushed her album back too. We were under the assumption that "ok she's taking her time to give us a quality product!" It was anything but.

Throwback Video: Janet feat Nelly - Call On Me

With the recent news of Janet signing to Live Nation and reuniting with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis for a new album, I decided to profile Janet's "Call On Me" for today's throwback video. It's definitely been awhile since I did a throwback video post and if I'm not mistaken I believe this video was one eons ago. Nonetheless this was the debut single from Janet's 2006, "20 Y.O." album. The song went to #1 R&B and #25 Pop on the Billboard charts. Enjoy!


Trey Songz Offers Up New Music

In My Own Words:
If you recall I ran a poll nearly a week ago asking readers, "What is your favorite Keyshia Cole hit?". Coming in with 23.8% percent, "I Remember" topped the list as favorite Keyshia Cole hit. "Love" followed with 19% and a two way tie with "Heaven Sent" and "I Should've Cheated" with 14% of the votes. I will have the results to the current poll once it closes. Remember you can vote an unlimited amount of times and unlimited amount of choices.

Music Feed: Six Degrees Of Beyonce

Image
Hello all! Oh wow...it's been quite a day! We have gotten such a substantial amount of rain that a lot of the city streets have been flooded. So on my way home from work tonight I had to take several different routes. Oh I was ready to pull the little hair I have on my head out. I couldn't wait to get home! Now that I'm here it is time for yet another 'six degrees' series. This time I profile none other than Beyonce!

You can't get any hotter than Beyonce! She began as the front woman for the group, Destiny's Child. Years down the road she embarked on a successful solo career that rivals Diana Ross. There is nothing that this one woman empire can't and won't do. She is perhaps one of the most ambitious stars in the world. With all her accolades and accomplishments you can see why.

Jay-Z - Beyonce's husband; plays a very big part in Bey's career. Over the years the two have collaborated together on numerous projects most notably on Beyonce's…

Keyshia Cole Graces Black Beat Magazine

Image
Keyshia Cole is currently riding high with her hit album, "A Different Me" which has spent a total of 7 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard 200(which charts the top selling albums in the country). Keyshia continues to grace magazine cover after cover and is proving to us time and time again that she is here to stay. Wow! It's been so long since I bought a Black Beat magazine let alone read one. When I was much younger like maybe 10 years ago, my friends and I would go crazy about magazines such as 'Word Up' or 'Black Beat'. Now it's like I just pass them by in the stores and don't think twice about them.

Christina Milian Graces King Magazine

Image
Oooh la la! Ms. Christina Milian gets dolled up for KING magazine. Looking at the picture, Christina actually reminds me of Nicki Minaj. If your not familiar with Nicki Minaj, she is a rapper who is affiliated with Lil' Wayne and his Young Money crew. Christina's new album, "Dream In Color" will be in stores soon. It is also one of the many albums due within the next few months. Ironically enough Christina's new album contains the title 'dream' and she is rumored to be dating The Dream. Interesting huh? What was even more interesting is when Nick Cannon was on the set of The-Dream and Mariah Carey's video for "My Love". If you recall Nick Cannon used to date The-Dream's rumored girlfriend, Christina Milian.

Hot off the heels of her recent Grammy performance and win(Best R&B album for "Jennifer Hudson"), Jennifer Hudson will release "Pocketbook" featuring Ludacris as her album's 3rd single. I he…

Janet Reunites With Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis

In My Own Words:
Janet Jackson has reunited with legendary producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis! The producers recently revealed the news during a Grammy function. This is good news! I think it is good news to everybody. A lot will say Janet has fallen off in recent years. A lot will say Janet should just give up. I am glad she is coming back, and I can't wait!

Teairra Mari will release her new album, "At That Point" on April 7. The album is led by the single, "Hunt 4 U" featuring Pleasure P. The singer worked with The Runners[worked with Young Jeezy] and Rick Ross on the new album! I almost forgot about this album. This is one of the many albums that will be released in the next few months. I can't wait for a lot of these albums to come out so I can be jamming all spring long.

Poll: What New Album Are You Looking Forward To?

Now that we are moving into the new year, more and more new music is starting to surface. We are starting to learn about perspective albums due for release within the next few months. It is the subject of today's newest poll. What new album are you looking forward to? I came up with the list of albums that are subject to be released within the next few months. Of course release dates are subject to change.


J. Holiday Returns With Round 2

Image
J. Holiday returns on March 10 with the aptly-titled, "Round 2". The album features the hit single, "It's Yours".



The album is the follow up to J's 2007 gold album, "Bac Of My Lac" which spawned the hit single,"Bed". I actually like the album cover but it makes him look like he could be a drunk!

Music Feed: Six Degrees of Foxy Brown

Image
Hello all! It's very late and for the last two days I have been a complete night owl. Continuing with my 'six degrees' series this time we will look at the celebrities commonly associated with rapper Foxy Brown.

Foxy Brown burst onto the scene with a style all her own. Her collaborations with Jay-Z made her a star. Her sex symbol status catapulted her into a Hip Hop legend. Her controversial temper tantrums rival only supermodel Naomi Campbell's. Outspoken, tough, and unshy, Foxy Brown leaves no stone unturned.

Lil' Kim - The long running feud between Foxy Brown and Lil' Kim is now industry legend. For the last 11 years these two rapstresses have been at each other's throats. Their beef has cooled down somewhat in recent years. Most recently Foxy attacked Kim on Mavado's "So Special Remix" for her obsession with bleaching her skin.

Jay-Z - He is one of Foxy Brown's most frequent collaborators. Over the years the two have created some rap clas…

In their ongoing feud Rick Ross strikes back at 50 Cent.



I will have to go with Ricky on this one just because 50 irks me more and more. I heard that the reviews of this song has been less than stellar. I actually like it though. I'm starting to think this little beef with Rick is just publicity for 50's "Before I Self Destruct" album.

Music Feed: Six Degrees Of Bow Wow

Image
'Six Degrees of Bow Wow' takes six celebrities that [have been or] are often mentioned alongside Bow Wow's name. A brief synopsis will be given for each celebrity and how their relationship correlates to Bow Wow.

Over the years we have seen this pint size rapper grow into a T.I. esque rapper. When I say T.I. esque I mean in terms of overall demeanor and style. T.I. also has ghostwritten songs for Bow Wow in the past. Unlike T.I. Bow Wow has a pretty clean record. Perhaps the baddest thing he's done is have his first onscreen sex scene courtesy of HBO's "Entourage". He occasionally cheats on girlfriends and boasts an ego that rivals 50 Cent and Kanye West. You love him and you hate him! He is Bow Wow!
