Last Name Brown First Name...

Who knew that three artists who all share the same last name would have so much in common? How much in common do they have? You have to read on to find out in Last Name Brown First Name...

Chris Brown
Chris Brown has replaced Bobby Brown as the Bad Boy Of R&B. Though Bobby Brown still occasionally makes the headlines for DUI charges he has simmered down quite a bit.

It seems like with Chris Brown trouble seems to follow him wherever he goes. Most recently Chris Brown attended a club along with his entourage the same night Drake and his entourage did. Unfortunately the celebratory night took a turn for the worse when Drake allegedly provoked Brown with a nasty letter detailing his relationship with ex flame Rihanna. The brawl caused numerous injuries  from both parties prompting in lawsuits and the club closing its doors.

We can't forget Chris Brown and his numerous Twitter beefs with fans, critics, skeptics, and other celebrities. His temper tantrums are now industry legend. What can't be denied is his talent. His knack for turning out hit singles and his moves on the dance floor. Its his performances on award shows that are usually the highlight of award shows.

What exactly troubles Chris Brown's soul remains unknown but with a last name like Brown notoriety seems to follow the name.

Bobby Brown
While Chris Brown was in diapers Bobby Brown was turning things out with his own brand of R&B. He was R&B's Bad Boy for his numerous run ins with the law. Who can forget his volatile and tumultuous relationship with the late Whitney Houston.

Like Chris Brown it seemed like trouble followed Bobby Brown wherever he went. Even when he wasn't looking for trouble it usually found him. Numerous attempts saw Bobby Brown cleaning up his act and being successful before falling back off the wagon.

Now with a new marriage, new family, new album and a new outlook on life Bobby Brown is leaving the Bad Boy moniker behind him...for now.

Foxy Brown
Her stage name bares the name Brown which derives from the famous 1970s heroine originated by Pam Grier. Born Inga Fung Marchand the artist known as Foxy Brown is still considered Hip Hop's Bad Girl. She has cooled down her act considerably in the last few years which comes as a breath of fresh air. There was a time where Foxy couldn't keep herself out of trouble.

Foxy Brown has had several high profile run ins with the law, with fans, and with celebrities. Foxy has been pretty quiet on all fronts which is good and bad. It is good to not read about her in the news attacking someone. It is bad that we haven't heard a single musical note from her in years. I think the rapstress secretly bowed out of Rap. She does manage to make special appearances every now and then like with Nicki Minaj in the club or joining friend reggae artist Baby Cham on stage.

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…
