Chris Brown Fumes Over Album Sales, Frank Ocean Comes Out

Chris Brown is fuming over the estimated first week sales of his new album Fortune. While the album is set to debut at #1 the album's first week sales(estimated at 120,000 - 140,000) is lower than expected. Chris Brown has released about five singles all which have done moderately well on all the charts. However when he pushed the album back in April I think that's what hurt the sales a bit. The album was supposed to be released on May 8. I think he should of kept that date. I really don't know why the album was pushed back in the first place. It's not like he had released a flopped single. Everything was on target for his album to perform well but maybe people are feeling him or the music this time. 

Anyway Chris has reportedly taken to Twitter and UStream expressing his disdain over the low sales week. Instead of bitch about it maybe some appearances wouldn't hurt. 

Frank Ocean has shocked everyone when it was revealed that some of his lyrics on his upcoming album Channel Orange contained lyrics aimed at a man instead of a woman. After the news broke Frank revealed his relationship with a guy when he was 19. The news has caught everyone by surprise but shockingly the response has been pretty positive. 

Frank's Island Def Jam debut album Channel Orange will be in stores and online July 17. I think with this announcement of his more people will be checking for his album. Frank Ocean has always had this mysterious quality to him and with good reason obviously. I'm happy that Frank has chosen to come out and be himself and not worry about what people think of him!

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…
