Missy Elliott, Timbaland To Release New Solo Albums

Missy Elliott is returning with a new album this June as is her longtime producer and partner; Timbaland. Read more below:

After years away from the spotlight, Missy Elliott and Timbaland are returning with new albums this summer.

The longtime collaborators will release their individual projects simultaneously in June, according to Timbaland. “Me and Missy are both coming with our albums at the same time, and it will be in June,” the super-producer revealed to MTV News.

Videos for their first singles will also roll out at the same time. “Right now, we’re preparing to get both our videos, our first singles, shot kinda at the same time,” added Timbo. “We want to do it as a movement and spontaneously.”

Missy’s last album The Cookbook was released seven years ago and Timbaland hasn’t put out a project since Shock Value II in 2009.

“I just don’t want to move too ahead of her and she don’t want to move too ahead of me,” Timbaland explained. “So we’re both doing it at the same time.”

In the interim, Missy has been featured on the remix to Katy Perry’s No. 1 single “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” and will appear in the video for J. Cole’s next single “Nobody’s Perfect.”

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…
