Ashanti Pushes 'Braveheart' Back, Mariah Accused Of Lip Syncing

In some not so surprising news, Ashanti has pushed back the release of her oft-delayed album Braveheart. The album was scheduled to be released on July 30. The album has suffered a series of setback for over a year. Ashanti has treated this album like a major label release even though its an indie album release. It seems that she is not releasing the album until one of her singles pops off. Current single Never Should Have is climbing up the charts and new remixes of the song were sent to radio today.

I didn't wanna believe that this album was going to get pushed back. Ashanti had been doing her media rounds and stating that the album was being released "July 30" so I just knew it was coming. But being that there was no official tracklisting release, then again there was. As quickly as the tracklisting was released, it was pulled from some blog sites. Others kept the tracklisting though it was revealed that the tracklisting wasn't accurate and could change. Aside from that there was no official album cover released. I was informed that the album cover that had been floating around for a year was the actual one.

Braveheart features production from 7, Irv Gotti, LT Hutton(Da Brat), Jerry Wonda(Wyclef Jean), Lil' Ronnie(That's What We Do f/R. Kelly), and Mansur(Never Should Have).

Guest appearances include Future, Meek Mill, French Montana, Keyshia Cole, and R. Kelly.

On a completely different note...Mariah Carey is receiving quite a bit of flack for her performance at Sunday's BET Awards. The singer is being accused of blatantly lip syncing to her hit single #Beautiful.

Lip syncing is something that Mariah is no stranger to. She has been accused of lip syncing in the past. I can't say I ever recall Mariah ever speaking out about it. All her performances so far(of this era) have been lackluster.

Mariah's new untitled album has been pushed back to an unspecified date. Meanwhile you can enjoy all 21 remixes to her current single #Beautiful.

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…
