Drake A Diva, Ashanti Drops The Ball, Jill Scott Beef

Hello all! There are a couple of music news stories that I wanted to talk about in depth so this post is a little lengthy but worth reading; I assure you. I'll start off with Mr. Drake who is riding high with hit singles; "The Motto" and "Take Care". He also recently ended his petty feud with Common. Now Drake is being called a diva and properly worse by the people at Vibe after this fiasco...

I was watching "The Wendy Williams Show" the other day and she spoke about Drake during her "Hot Topics" segment. Apparently he was supposed to appear on the newest issue of Vibe magazine but the magazine ditched him. Allegedly the rapper was acting like a "diva" and the magazine opted for his own label mate; Nicki Minaj!

Word is that Drake beefed with the stylist over clothes; showed up late to the set; and drove off in his Jeep.

I wonder what is going on with Ms. Ashanti and her video to her single; "The Woman You Love" featuring Busta Rhymes. The song leaked out back in January and a teaser of the video was released almost two weeks ago. My question is "Where is the video" and "Where is the promotion". Actually that is two questions. I have more but I'll stop there. I'm just wondering what's going on. It seems like she dropped the ball already on the single.

There have been stories about her signing to Cash Money Records but I never heard her come out and deny the story either.

Tamia alerted her twitter followers that this Friday; March 2; she will likely release the lead track from her album; "Beautiful Surprise". The album of the same name is said to follow in the Spring.

I like Tamia but she is kinda hit or miss for me like Tank. I like some songs and some others are just blah!

Like Ashanti; Tamia is an independent artist and she did pretty well for herself as an indie artist.

I was told a couple of days ago that Jill Scott got into a twitter war with some of Nicki Minaj fans. Apparently the Philly diva was asked about Nicki's Grammy performance and her reply was "Umm". Well the reaction rubbed Nicki's fans the wrong way and they attacked Jilly in response. Not one to be outdone; Jilly came back with some scathing remarks to Nicki's fans. Pure Comedy from what I was told!

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…
