Music Commentary: Love & Reality TV

Many famed couples have given us an inside look into their private lives. Many of these reality TV shows are used primarily as a means of promotion. Usually following the release or finale of these perspective reality shows would follow concerts, albums, movies, and things of the like.

Famed couples; whether they star in reality TV shows together or star in movies or (music) videos together; its usually a sign of doom for the relationship.

Check out my list of famed couples from over the years; some still in union; some are not who have or will star in reality TV shows!

Keyshia Cole & Daniel "Boobie" Gibson
Keyshia Cole is no stranger to reality TV having starred in a pair of successful BET shows. Now the singer is again domination the reality TV realm with an upcoming show; "Family First". The network airing the show has yet to be announced but you can expect an announcement soon.

Nas & Kelis

We never got to see Nas and Kelis' MTV reality show but word is the show was deemed "too boring" that the show ended up on the cutting room floor.

Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown
We remember what many describe as a "train wreck" of a show; "Being Bobby Brown" which aired on the Bravo channel back in 2005. The show gave us an inside look of the wacky and tumultuous marriage between the late Whitney Houston and her husband; Bobby Brown. The show was pretty entertaining and unfortunately word that Whitney Houston never signed off for the show to get a proper DVD release. Bummer!

Jessica Simpson & Nick Lachey

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey was the resident couple of MTV for awhile with their hit show; "Newlyweds". After Jessica Simpson's star started to rise; Jessica and Nick's relationship started to fall apart.

T.I. & Tiny
T.I & Tiny can currently be seen on their hit VH1 reality show; "A Family Hustle". The couple has been together for many years and have many children together and outside their marriage. Only time will tell how long these lovebirds will hang on but I'm not one to count any relationship out. Based on what we see on TV anyway; their union seems pretty strong to me.

Britney Spears & Kevin Federline
I would be lying if I told you I watched or even remember Britney Spears and ex-husband; Kevin Federlines UPN reality show. I can't even remember the name of it but like "Being Bobby Brown"; it was hailed as a "train wreck". "Train wreck" was a phrase used to describe a lot of the reality TV shows in the late 00's.

The union between Britney and Kevin was short lived and the couple eventually divorced.

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. 

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…
