The R&B Men Are Doing It For Themselves Part 1

The men in R&B have been dominating the charts for quite some time and making the women in R&B appear nonexistent in some cases. The men now have their work cut out for them as several ladies return to the spotlight this Summer. 

The men mentioned below are some of the hottest in R&B and one is making their return tonight on the BET Awards. Check it out! 

Chris Brown
2012 has proven to be a banner year for the beleaguered star. With several hit songs and hit collaborations Chris Brown is still a magnet for controversy whether its intentional or not. His feud with Drake is now industry legend but its his hit making sensibilities that has made him a household name.

With singles like Strip, Sweet Love, and Till I Die the B in R&B stands for Brown!

New album Fortune arrives in stores today!

Ne-Yo
With a new position at Motown Records Ne-Yo has even more creative control for his new album R.E.D. in stores and online September 18. The album's buzz single Lazy Love featured a provocative video. New single and video for Let Me Love You(Until You Learn To Love Yourself) will debut on July 9.

D'Angelo
D'Angelo's return to music is probably one of the most wanted comebacks of 2012 besides Lauryn Hill. While we continue to wait for Lauryn to drop another album D'Angelo is finally making good with his return. After positive reviews for his overseas tour the singer is now embarking on a US tour with Mary J. Blige and Melanie Fiona.

D'Angelo's new album is rumored to be titled James River. D'Angelo is reportedly signed to J Records.

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…
