Michelle Williams To Release New Single, Kanye West New Album Leaks

Michelle Williams is back! The former Destiny's Child singer will release a new single If We Had Your Eyes on June 24. The song is the first single from her upcoming album which will be released through the eOne label.

Recently friend Beyonce penned an intimate letter to Michelle praising her performance in theatre for her role in the show Fela!

In Hip Hop News...Kanye Wests' new album Yeezus has leaked out after being prematurely available on a password only site. The album features appearances from Frank Ocean(on the first single: New Slaves), Daft Punk(worked with Pharrell Williams), Kid Cudi, and Chief Keef. Yeezus will be available in stores on June 18.

Early reaction the album(via Twitter) has been somewhat mixed from what I've seen so far. I personally don't have much interest in this album so I will probably just skip it altogether.

Nelly is still trying to make that comeback he so desperately needs and he might be on the right track. The St. Louis rapper is linking up with Nicki Minaj on the new single Get Like Me. It is the newest single from his upcoming album M.O. due later this year.

A few weeks ago a song surfaced from Nelly featuring Future titled Give U Dat but based on the bad reaction the song was canned. In an ironic twist I read somewhere that Nelly's ex Ashanti reportedly worked with Future on her upcoming album Braveheart.

BET is getting in on the action of female driven reality TV drama but adding a more positive light on it with Hip Hop Sisters. The show spearheaded by MC Lyte will show several old school(mixed with new school: Lil' Mama) female rappers reigniting their careers. The show stars Smooth(song: Strawberries), Yo Yo(song: You Can't Play With My Yo Yo), Lady Of Rage(song: Afro Puffs), and Monie Love(song: Monie In The Middle).

I thought several of the women mentioned above had careers that continued after music. My guess is the show will deal with the women returning to "rapping" as a career.

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…
