Nicki Minaj's "Roman Reloaded" Album Tops UK Album Charts

As her new album; "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" is set to debut at the top of the US Pop charts this week; the album is also making noise overseas. She is also breaking records overseas. Read more below to get the full scoop:

This week is a double celebration for Nicki Minaj – not only has she scored her first UK Number 1 album, in doing so, she has become the highest charting solo female rapper in Official Albums Chart history.

Minaj’s second album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded knocked her mentor Madonna’s twelfth studio album MDNA off the top of the Official Albums Chart on Sunday. The Official Charts Company can now reveal that …Roman Reloaded has beaten previous chart performances by Neneh Cherry (who got to Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart in 1989), Lauryn Hill (who got to Number 2 in 1998), Betty Boo (Number 4 in 1990), Missy Elliott (who got to Number 7 in 2006), Ms Dynamite (Number 10 in 2002), Alesha Dixon (Number 11 in 2008), MIA (Number 21 in 2010), Eve (Number 22 in 2001), Melanie B (Number 28 in 2002), Lisa Maffia (Number 44 in 2003), Lady Sovereign (Number 58 in 2007) and Lil Kim (Number 67 in 2000).

On another note; its funny what other females they refer to as rappers like Alesha Dixon and Melanie B(formerly of the Spice Girls). The dumbness!

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…
