Janet Jackson Speaks On New Album, Frank Ocean's Album Won't Be Available In Target

Janet Jackson is revealing in the new JET magazine(in which she appears on the cover) that she is signed to Universal Music. Many have been speculating and inquiring when Janet will release a new album but only time will tell. Janet does seem to be more focused on acting nowadays which makes perfect sense. Her music career has stalled somewhat over the years but fans still want music from the superstar. When asked about reuniting with longtime producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis Janet is coy not to reveal much. The album is still in its early stages.

Janet's last few albums may of not set the charts on fire but I still think they were pretty good in my opinion. 

Frank Ocean who released his debut album Channel Orange through iTunes earlier in the week will find his first week sales around the 110-125K mark. This is only through digital retailers as the physical album won't be released until July 17. 

It looks like Frank Ocean's sales won't be hurt by retailer Target who refuses to carry the album because of an iTunes exclusive. If anything the larger than expected numbers(which I'm sure will increase next week) will probably have Target wishing they did carry the album. 

Many are questioning the timing of Frank's coming out and his perfectly timed album as a publicity stunt. You know what they say though "There's no such thing as bad publicity". I mean even if it were a publicity stunt he's certainly not the first or last artist to do such a thing.

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…
