Whitney Houston In New Film, Mary J. Talks Name Change

Whitney Houston is busy filming the remake of the classic 70s movie; "Sparkle" starring herself and Jordin Sparks in the title role. After Whitney wraps that up; word is the singing superstar will star in a movie for the ABC network. The details of the movie are still under wraps but plan on seeing a lot of Whitney in movies in the upcoming years. Recently the singer admitted that she was about close to signing on for the sequel to the 1997 movie; "Waiting To Exhale".

Mary J. Blige recently conducted an interview where she revealed that her record label handlers wanted her to change her last name; Blige to Brown. Mary was against this and stuck to her original last name. This was part of some of the press Mary conducted while promoting new album; "My Life II: The Journey Continues(Act 1)" in stores and online now. The album was said to have sold an estimated 165K units in its first week.

I believe that is Mary's lowest first week sales in quite some time. In my opinion; the magic is just not there anymore. I haven't liked a Mary J. Blige album since "The Breakthrough". I'm waiting on her to top that. The new album which I've only heard bits and pieces of have nice songs but their pretty forgettable. As opposed to a song like "Enough Cryin'"(which appeared on "The Breakthrough") stood out right away. It was something that you wanted to listen to over and over. Well for me it was.

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.

Now playing: Trina - I Want It All (ft. Monica)

*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. 

This song begins with echos of Janet saying " 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…
