Throwback Video: Queen Pen - I Got Cha

Do you all remember this video or more importantly this song? The song caused a bit of controversy because rumors suggested that Queen Pen was dissing Lil' Kim; which she denied. I'm liking the hair style that Queen Pen is rocking in the video and the song was okay to me. Where is Queen Pen by the way? Anyone know? Check out the video!

Maxwell, Jill Scott Plan Joint Tour!

Maxwell has a had an incredible year last year and he is making sure 2010 is no different. Along for the ride is Jill Scott who is not only joining Maxwell on a tour; she is releasing a new album and will be star in the 'Why Did I Get Married 2' in theaters April 2. Read below for more info on the tour as well as stories on Ester Dean's starstruck behavior and Beyonce's alter ego change.

Grammy-winning singers Maxwell and Jill Scott will embark on an arena tour starting in Cleveland on May 21. Announced today (Feb. 26), the tour will bring the neo-soul artists to 20 cities including New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, and Washington DC, with more dates to be announced through June.

Maxwell, fresh from the Grammys with the trophies for Best R&B Album and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance (for his album "BLACKsummers'night" and single "Pretty Wings," respectively) is hitting the road for the first time since his fall 2008 tour with rapper Common. …

Album Spotlight: Lil' Kim - La Bella Mafia

One of my old friends is a huge Lil' Kim fan and often times he would ridicule her arch nemesis; Foxy Brown; who I am a fan of. Of course he liked some Foxy songs but he favored Kim over her.

In 2003; Lil' Kim had a lot to prove and 'La Bella Mafia' did the trick. The album contained two hit singles; 'Magic Stick' featuring 50 Cent and 'The Jump Off'.

That summer of 2003; my friend and I drove around in his car and this was pretty much all he played so the album would eventually grow on me.

I remember on the eve of the release of this album; XXL magazine ridiculed Kim for this album cover and having Notorious B.I.G. executive produce the album(even though at the time he had been dead for a couple of years). Personally I like this cover and I like Kim's style on this album and I would prefer this gangstress style for her on her next album(whenever she decides to release it).

A few weeks ago I was playing this album like I had just bought it but I was cle…

Foxy Brown To Shoot Video For New Single!

Hello everyone! Foxy Brown is making quite a lot of noise based on her appearance on the recently leaked track, 'Ride Ya Bike' aka 'She's A Biker'. The song features Ron Browz of 'Pop Champagne' fame and the track goes pretty hard in my opinion. I'm not saying that cause I'm a huge fan but it is a really nice song. Foxy is reportedly shooting a video for the song and she is also working with reggae artist Barrington Levy[who was featured on Shyne's 'Bad Boys' song] and MIMS. Remember him? You think Foxy will make a true comeback this year?

Speaking of comebacks Ciara is ready to release new music with a new single arriving as early as April according to twitter. The singer released her ill-fated 'Fantasy Ride' last year and only 'Love Sex Magic' featuring Justin Timberlake charted. The album was a flop. Hopefully Ciara can redeem herself this year. What do you think?

One comeback that has been on the tip of everyone's t…

Teairra Mari Films Video For New 'Sponsor' Single!

Teairra Mari has had a few false starts getting her album; 'At That Point' off the ground. Now with new single, 'Sponsor' taking off on the R&B charts, hopefully this is the single that will launch Teairra's new album. Read below for info on the video shoot for 'Sponsor' as well as stories on T.I.'s return home and Anita Baker's possible jail sentence.

Playing a couple, the two young artists are seen sharing a kiss on the lips when shooting a music video for one of her 'At That Point' singles.

Teairra Mari and Soulja Boy get cozy with each other in Los Angeles for the video shoot of their joint track called "Sponsor". The video was filmed in an L.A. mansion Tuesday, February 23 and Rev Run's daughter Vanessa Simmons is also set to make a cameo. Gucci Mane who is featured on the hook along with Soulja doesn't have a part in the video because he is currently staying behind the bars.

"Sponsor" is a track taken from …

Throwback Video: Toni Braxton - You're Making Me High

I can still remember when this song first came on and I remember my friend had the single. At that time I hadn't heard the song but I knew that Toni Braxton had a new song out. Well my friend let me borrow his single and I played it in our stereo at home. Much to my delight; the song was good. I had no idea though it was about masturbation.



Toni Braxton is currently gearing up to release her new album; 'Pulse' on May 4. Are you all excited about the new Toni Braxton album?

Estelle Lets Out Her Inner Freak In New Video Preview Clip!

Music Feed: Home Is Where The Heart Is

All the songs listed below are about home; well for the most part. Some allude to the comfort of being home while others use home as a innuendo for something else. Check out the list and if you haven't heard of these songs; YouTube them!

It's My House, Diana Ross
This song is not Diana's most well known song but the song is from Diana's 1979 album, 'The Boss'. There is a movie that I can't think of off the top of my head where someone is singing this. Hmm...

My Place, Tweet
This is the opening song on Tweet's debut album; 'Southern Hummingbird'. It is very smooth and relaxing. Make sure you check it out if you haven't already.

Come Over To My Place, Davina
You may or may not remember this song but it was included on the 'Love Jones' soundtrack I believe or I could be wrong. It was a very nice chill song.

In My House, The Mary Jane Girls
The Mary Jane Girls gained notoriety for singing songs that may appear to be about one thing but was abo…

Album Spotlight: Brandy - Full Moon

Ask most people and they will say that 'Full Moon' is their favorite Brandy album. It is not her most successful album but 'Full Moon' has definitely made its mark over the years. Many celebrities have even personally noted this album as a favorite of theirs. Some celebrities have taken it one step further by saying Brandy is one of their favorite singers and all that good stuff.

Now for 'Full Moon'; it brings back a lot of memories for me. I can even remember buying the album at Circuit City(which is not even around anymore). I played this album straight for two years and one of my good friends was just as crazy about this album as I was. Even more recently I found out that a co-worker of mine is a big Brandy fan and we gushed about this album and other Brandy albums and songs.

'Full Moon' is one of my favorite songs on the album as well as 'All In Me'. A lot of people felt like this album was electronic mainly because of Rodney Jerkin's some…

Faith Evans, Biggie Sued For Breach Of Contract!

Faith Evans is poised to release new music this year and while we wait on that; Faith must answer to a judge due to a lawsuit stemming from her ex-husband; Biggie's estate. Read more below as well as stories on Patti LaBelle's 'American Idol' rant and Vivian Green's return to music.

As of Tuesday February 24, 2010, the law offices of Lowe Law, P.C., in Los Angeles, have moved forward with a lawsuit against Faith Evans, RocDarling, and the Estate of Christopher “Notorious B.I.G” Wallace, with claims of “Breach of Contract” by their clients Kaushi Entertainment LLC and Dro-Entertainment Inc.

The lawsuit seeks over a million dollars and punitive damages.

Rest assure, this isn't an East-West thing, it's a Money thing.

In the complaint filed yesterday by Lowe Law, Kaushi and Dro-Entertainment claim that en-route to producing a documentary on the late great Notorious B.I.G, defendant RocDarling failed to comply with a written agreement made with the companies, in whi…

Usher's Album Tracklisting In Question!

Usually when you see posts like these; they are usually done a few days in advance. So sometimes some of the info may be a little off but it's me speaking on different stories surfacing the net. I didn't really know what to post this but in the next paragraph or so I'm just talking about Usher's tracklisting; so read on!

Hello everyone! Most of us have heard all the numerous Usher leaks that have hit within the last year or so. I have done a pretty good job of not listening to the leaks for obvious reasons. Now on the eve of his new album, 'Raymond v. Raymond'; many are wondering what songs will make the album. I read that Usher revealed that the album will have 13 tracks. So it is anyone's guess as to what songs will make the album. Currently Usher is working about three singles('Lil' Freak', 'There Goes My Baby', and 'Hey Daddy') right now so its safe to say those will be included on the album. But any day now a track listing sh…

Fantasia Target Of Hate Mail!
Fantasia is having an ugly reality thrown her way. According to TMZ, the singer, starring in “The Color Purple,” playing at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, is the victim of a threatening letter.

The celebrity police themed website says Fannie is under a self-imposed lockdown because of the letter:

It all started last night at the Pantages Theater in L.A. – Fantasia was reading her fan mail after a performance of “The Color Purple.”

Fantasia’s manager tells us Barrino became alarmed over a disturbing letter loaded with racial slurs – including the n-word – and a line that read, “go back where you came from and die.”

Album Spotlight: Sade - Love Deluxe

I was just in the car last night when Sade's newest song 'Soldier Of Love' came on and my friend mispronounced the name; something many people do and have done over the years. Pronounced Shar-day; Sade burst back into the limelight late last year with her first album in 10 years. Often confused as a solo act; Sade is actually a group.

One Sade album I really like is 1992's 'Love Deluxe'. The album featured singles like 'No Ordinary Love' and 'Kiss Of Life'. My mother owned this album many years ago and I came to like it as a result. I would later purchase my own copy of the album many years later.

'Love Deluxe' has a relaxing feel and like many Sade songs; the songs here carry on for well over five minutes in most cases. That's mainly because the album only contains eight tracks total. One of my favorite songs is 'Like A Tattoo'. I like the storytelling in this song and the breakdown that leads to a stunning climax. You will ha…

Throwback Video: 1990 #1 Songs

20 years ago. Where were you? Were you all even born? I was six years old. I was in kindergarten. I do remember most of the songs covered here in this montage dedicated to the #1 songs of 1990. You will notice a lot of familiar faces here such as Madonna, Mariah Carey, Paula Abdul and more. Check it out!



Seeing and hearing these songs brings back a lot of memories for myself personally. I remember those weekends spent at Grandma's house. Me and my sister would watch videos on VH1 and MTV.

Jennifer Lopez Dropped From Sony Records?

Certainly you can't believe everything you read. So certain stories that I reproduce here that I'm not so sure about will feature a question mark in the title post.

Jennifer Lopez has had a tough time reemerging after taking some years off due to having twins. It's never easy staging a comeback especially nowadays. Personally I think Jennifer should just stick to movies but whatever.

The news is that Jennifer Lopez has been dropped from Sony. Read below to find out more as well as stories on Ashanti's latest record deal and Rihanna's next album!

Jennifer Lopez has been dropped by her record label, Sony’s Epic Records, according to a report from Deadline.com’s Nikki Finke. The once-hot singer-actress had begun to stage her musical comeback late last year when she released a new single, “Louboutins,” and then fell while singing it at November’s American Music Awards. (See: the photo at left.) Now, if this latest report is to be trusted (and EW has calls/emails in to her…

Rihanna Set To Re Release 'Rated R' Album!

Hello everyone! Have you all heard Rihanna's 'Rated R' album? I can't say I have. I really didn't have an interest in it though I did kinda like 'Russian Roulette'. After that I was turned off by her Gothic style but I can understand the direction she was going in. Anyway like Rihanna's last release, 'Good Girl Gone Bad'; her current album 'Rated R' will be re released in the near future and it will feature production from The-Dream. The-Dream was said to have mentioned this on Hot97 radio station out of New York. Will you be buying?

Foxy Brown has just completed a song with Ron Browz of 'Jumping Out The Window' fame. Pictures of the duo surfaced on twitter and the song was played on a New York radio station by Mr. Cee. The song will hopefully leak out soon and I'm not sure who's album its supposed to be on or what will happen with it. So with that said are you looking forward to new music from Foxy? Or do you feel like(a …

I can't say I'm really feeling it to be honest. I am looking forward to the album but most of it I've heard but not to the point to where I should tire of it quick.

Chris Brown Probation Hearing Goes Good!
A judge is praising Chris Brown's progress on his probation for the beating of ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg says Brown hasn't missed a session of domestic-violence counseling and has done 32 days of hard labor in his home state of Virginia.

She also cleared the 20-year-old R&B star to travel out of the United States in May and June for concerts. The exact locations weren't disclosed.

The judge's comments came during a Thursday hearing during which she reviewed Brown's progress with the terms of his probation. Brown was sentenced last year to fi…

Throwback Video: Aaliyah - Try Again

I'm taking you all back 10 years ago when Aaliyah released 'Try Again'. The single was from her debut movie role in 'Romeo Must Die'. The single went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and it was the first song to accomplish that feature with solely airplay. The song; out of nowhere just popped in my head so I said why not make it a 'throwback video' for tonight. Enjoy!

Mariah Carey '100%' Music Video Clip!

If I am not mistaken I believe '100%' was supposed to appear on the 'Precious' soundtrack but it was replaced by Mary J. Blige's 'I Can See In Color'. I remember reading so many people gush over this song but this is truly my first time hearing it and it is a nice song. People feel like this is what Mariah should go back to; singing ballads similar to this. Do you agree? Has Mariah strayed too far from her winning formula over the years? Then again if Mariah has chased all the given trends over the years; would she still be around? Check out the video!



Watching this video makes me want to pop out my 'Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel' album. It's been awhile since I listened to it in full anyway.

Album Spotlight: Kanye West - 808s & Heartbreak

I wasn't that big of a fan of Kanye Wests' prior to the release of '808s & Heartbreak'. To this day I still don't know exactly what drew me to this album instead of his others. I know I wasn't very particular about 'Love Lockdown' or 'Heartless'; the single choices but everything else really spoke to me.

The opening song 'Say You Will' is complete with heart monitor sound effects and a very emotional entry on the album; one of my favorites. My favorite song on the album is 'Welcome To Heartbreak' featuring Kid Cudi and to this day I'm still miffed at the Kid Cudi feature cause it doesn't sound like him. I recently revealed to my friend Kid Cudi was on the track and she was just surprised as I was.

Other songs like 'Street Lights' are high on my list among favorites and one song I would play constantly. I have a lot of memories with this album. I remember playing it back on a road trip to Wisconsin during the Tha…

Artist Spotlight: Monica

Monica has been delivering music to us all for over 15 years! Can you believe it? Time sure does fly. This year Monica let us into her life via the BET reality show, 'Still Standing'. The title also serves as the name of her fifth album in stores March 23.

According to Monica's manager; Monica worked on 'Still Standing' for nearly two years. There were many setbacks and questions regarding Monica's single choices. Well it looks like Monica found herself a hit with first single, 'Everything To Me' which is currently in the R&B top 20 and the Hot 100 at #82. The song was produced by Missy Elliott and shows a sensitive side of Monica we haven't heard in awhile.

With a new outlook on life and her career; Monica is poised to do very big things this year. This is why the spotlight is on Monica!

Ludacris, Nicki Minaj 'My Chick Bad' Music Video Clip!

Ludacris has been making a lot of noise with this video which features Nicki Minaj as well as a few cameos from some other female rappers. You will have to watch at the end to see who.

Ludacris' 'Battle Of The Sexes' album will be in stores March 9 which means it will be leaking within the next week or so.

Nivea Debuts New Buzz Single!

And don't be misled by the title. You can't hear the audio here but you can find the audio on YouTube. I mean I really didn't think we'd hear a lick of music from Nivea again except for her past hits. Having children by both The-Dream and Lil' Wayne; I'm sure Nivea doesn't have to work at all if she chose not to. I am glad though that her love for music has brought her back to the game. Nivea just leaked a buzz single called, 'Love Hurts' and its from her upcoming album; 'Purple Heart'. I don't have any more info on the album nor its release date. I just say come here everyday and one day you'll have your news!

In other Nivea news she did a remake of Timbaland and Drake's 'Say Somethin' along with rapper Rasheeda. There is a video floating around of it but everytime I try to get it; the video is taken off the perspective websites.

Another artist to look forward to with new music is Kanye West. 2009 wasn't the best year …

Toni Braxton Reaches Out To Mo'Nique For New Album!

A lot of people have been waiting on Toni Braxton to drop this 'Pulse' album. With all the song leaks though; it has just made for even more pushbacks. Set for a May 4 release date; Toni Braxton hooks up with Mo'Nique among others on her new album. Read below for more on that story as well as stories on Ludacris' new album tracklisting and Ashanti's mothers' thoughts on Susan Boyle. Check it out!

Comedian-turned-actress Mo’Nique, who is up for an Academy Award for her role in Precious, makes a cameo on Braxton’s sixth studio album. “She does a monologue on one of my songs,” the R&B diva exclusively tells Rap-Up.com. The track was inspired by Oran “Juice” Jones’ 1986 hit “The Rain.”

“It’s about this relationship where this guy finds out his girl is cheating on him. We do a song, it doesn’t sound anything like that, but it’s the reverse of a guy who gets busted cheating. [Mo'Nique] does this whole monologue and it’s really funny and comedic.”

Throwback Video: Groove Theory - Tell Me

I'm taking you all back 15 years ago! A lot of people may not remember Groove Theory as they were really like an one hit wonder.

Groove Theory consisted of singer Amel Larrieux and producer Bryce Wilson. Check out the video!

Birdman Speaks On R. Kelly Mistake!

It is somewhat odd for Birdman to be speaking on this now since it was many years ago when R. Kelly and Birdman planned a collaboration album. Of course it fell through due to R. Kelly hooking up with Jay-Z; no pun intended. Anyway though some stars don't reveal things like this to years down the road. And it always makes for an interesting story. Read below for more info on that as well as Mariah Carey's latest deal with Target(the store) and Shyne's new label deal.

Producer and part-time rapper Brian "Birdman" Williams is known for making hits for Lil Wayne and other members of his Cash Money arsenal but the New Orleans native sites working with singer R. Kelly as his biggest musical mistake.

In an interview with Ozone Magazine, Birdman didn't mince words when it came to a failed collaborative effort with the R&B crooner "Probably the worst investment I did was f----- with R. Kelly," he said. "That was a waste of my time. I could've mad…

The-Dream Reveals New Album Cover!

I think Dream is going to keep on until he gets some Grammy's for Best R&B album or something. I remember the upset about him not getting any Grammy's for his last album. So 'Love King' is the name of the new Dream album and I think the first single as well. So how do you like the album cover? It makes me think of Kanye West's '808s & Heartbreak' a little just because of the heart. I'm not sure when the album is being released but the first single just leaked out. I haven't heard it though.

Ashanti Creates New Reality Show!

Ashanti is coming back strong in 2010; at least I hope so. I am an Ashanti fan and I'm not ashamed to say so. She is creating a new reality show in the vein of 'American Idol' as well as recording a new album. Read below for more info on the show as well as stories on Usher's album tracklisting and Mary J. Blige's album re-release.

R&B star Ashanti has reportedly signed a deal to create a music reality series based on American Idol.
According to Contact Music, the singer-actress has teamed with Reveille Productions for the reality contest.
Ashanti's manager Tina Douglas confirmed: "It's an unscripted television show that is definitely music related. We'll be revealing more in the coming weeks.
"She has her own record label, called Written Entertainment, and the show is going to revolve around her label... It's going to be really big."
The 'Foolish' singer reportedly split from Nelly last year and has since been linked to rapper…

Mariah Carey Struggling With Concert Tickets?

They love to see you fail or not do well. Of course Mariah is used to selling a lot of records but she has never been a big concert performer. Her last big tour was 'The Adventures Of Mimi' from her 'The Emancipation Of Mimi' album but now reports say Mariah is not doing so well on her 'Angels Advocate' tour. Read below to find out as well as stories on Drake's new single and Monica's foray back into reality TV.

When Mariah Carey set out on her ‘Angel’s Advocate Tour’ in support of her poorly received, and even worse charting, ‘Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel’ LP, we highlighted that it made little sense considering her dismal record sales and public disinterest.
