Swizz Beats Speaks On Alicia Keys' New Album

I mean of course with Swizz Beats being Alicia Keys' husband and everything he is going to hype her new album. I mean its only right...right? Find out what Swizz has to say about Alicia's upcoming album and his own project.

Alicia Keys has walked down the aisle, welcomed a son, and produced a play in the two-plus years since releasing her last album, 2009’s The Element of Freedom. Now the Grammy-winning singer is plotting her return to music with her fifth album, which Swizz Beatz calls “timeless.”

Her husband was beaming with pride as he spoke about his wife’s upcoming music. “She’s working on a timeless piece,” Swizz told Angie Martinez.

Expect Alicia to get personal on her first album since giving birth to baby Egypt. “The topics that she’s speaking about are super deep and from the heart, and to me what music has been missing,” added the producer, who dropped his new single “Street Knock” featuring A$AP Rocky. “It’s the thing that makes us special as an artist. I tell her, ‘Yo, I’m proud of you because you’re making timeless pieces.’”

In addition to Swizz, Alicia has been in the studio with Pop & Oak and longtime collaborator Kerry “Krucial” Brothers. “You deserve the best and I want to give you the best, so when you hear this music you’re blown away, like you’re filled,” said Alicia during her appearance on “GMA” late last year.

She’s fine tuning the project and a release could come soon. “It’s showtime,” announced Swizz. “She’s moving faster than people think. She’s tightening the bolts.”

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…
