2011: Favorites In Music...And Then Some

Favorite Video Of The Year: Kelly Rowland - Lay It On Me
Kelly Rowland teased us and teased us with the clip for this steamy hot video which was a follow up to her "Motivation" video. This video didn't get as much play nor did the single but Kelly had definitely discovered her inner sex goddess and I loved every minute of it. Kelly did catch some flack though when it was discovered that her video copied another video frame by frame in some scenes. Who's original these days anyway? Fortunately there were a few other videos that managed to get my attention and there listed below!
Faith Evans - Right Here
Teedra Moses - R U 4Real
Mary J. Blige Featuring Lil' Wayne & Diddy - Someone To Love Me(Naked)
Marsha Ambrosius - Far Away

Favorite Producer:(tie) Rich Harrison/Noah "40" Shebib
I had to look at song of the songs I really liked and think about who produced those songs. I thought of Rich Harrison because he produced two songs that I really liked this year; Jennifer Hudson's "No One Gonna Love You" and Marsha Ambrosius' "Late Nights & Early Mornings" which went neck and neck on the R&B charts earlier this year.

With me stanning over Drake's "Take Care" album and the aforementioned songs I really like I thought of Drake's frequent collaborator; Noah "40" Shebib.

Though I concentrated heavily on music and its influence and impact on me this year; I felt the need to just throw in a few more things just for the reader's sake. Enjoy!

Favorite Reality TV Show: (tie) The Real Housewives Of New Jersey/The Real Housewives Of Atlanta
What can I say? I love the Real Housewive franchise and I can't get enough of it. I don't watch every franchise per say but I follow must of the women. This year it was split between New Jersey and Atlanta because they both managed to keep a fair share of drama. Though I will say New Jersey is edging Atlanta a little because Atlanta is not coming with the dramatics like they should. Maybe by the end of the 4th season I will be singing another tune; we'll see!

Favorite Movie: Insidious
I remember when Insidious was trending on twitter which is obviously a big deal. I also thought it could be one of those hyped up horror movies. You notice how every horror movie that's come out as of late is so hyped up? Think: Paranormal Activity 3. Anyway I got a fair amount of chills and thrills when I saw this especially since I was alone in my place with all the lights out. That obviously made the movie more creepy. Was it scary? To an extent. Not on the blood and gore level but more on the supernatural level which would describe this type of movie.

Annoying Celebrity Of The Year:(tie) Justin Beiber/Kim Kardashian
I can't with Justin Beiber and all his gangster posturing in Christmas videos. I just don't get the big fuss with him.

Kim Kardashian has only taken the place of another famed socialite; Paris Hilton as Kim and her antics..and family have been shoved down our throats all year long. It's funny because when Paris Hilton was at her peak as far as being in the spotlight; she never annoyed me the way Kim Kardashian does. Let's not forget the fake and tacky wedding she had this year.

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.

*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. 

"Warmth"
This song begins with echos of Janet saying "...in 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…
