Mario, Ashanti, & Justin Timberlake Plan New Albums

Looks like September is the next month where we will see a Super Tuesday. Tuesday being the day that new music releases are generally released. This is of course if the release dates stick. As far as R&B releases are concerned these release dates are subject to change. Still you can get an idea of what's to be released.

One R&B singer that has been out of the limelight for awhile is Mario. Mario will release his new album on September 17. The working title has been Restoration though I'm not sure if that's still the title at press time. His current single Somebody Else featuring Nicki Minaj is bubbling under the Hot 100 charts. The video clip to the song is a little eerie if you ask me. You'd have to check it out to see what I mean if you haven't watched it already.

I am glad Mario is back though. He is severely underrated and I feel he sings circles around his R&B counterparts.

Another bites the dust. In the never ending saga of push backs Ashanti has once again pushed her new album BraveHeart back. The album will reportedly be released on September 3. Don't hold your breath though because I'm certainly not holding mine. I'm  unsure of the exact reason of the push backs but one reason could be not having a hit single. Ashanti has failed to release a single that has made an impact on the charts. The album's first single The Woman You Love peaked at #59 on the R&B charts. That's been the most successful song this era and personally that's when the album was supposed to be released. The album cover and full track listing were readily released nearly two years ago and then the infinite push backs began.

At this point I don't see the album coming out at all. Nonetheless Ashanti keeps pushing singles in hope that one will stick. Her latest song to be leaked is I Got It featuring Future. Maybe this will be the song to give Ashanti the confidence to release her ill fated BraveHeart album.

One artist who will definitely release an album this September is Justin Timberlake. He is re releasing his The 20/20 Experience album as a proper follow up but its being deemed a sequel to the hit album released back in March. The album features the new single Take Back The Night which is available on iTunes now. Take Back The Night was produced by Timberlake and Timbaland among others.The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 will be in stores on September 30.

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…
