The Weeknd Calls On Drake, Ashanti On TV

Canadian singer The Weeknd has reunited with Drake. The two are responsible for the hit single Crew Love from Drake's album Take Care. There was said to be a beef between the two artists and if it existed, its all dead and gone now. The two have been in the studio collaborating on The Weeknd's upcoming album Kiss Land. Kiss Land will be in stores by year's end. I say that because no official release date has been given. I have read that the album would be released late Summer but let's be real here...Summer's almost over, well in two more months.

I, like everyone else was a huge fan of Crew Love and if this upcoming collaboration is anything like that, we're in for a treat. Right?

I was watching Watch! What Happens Live! and I saw that Ashanti will be appearing on the show Thursday August 1. The show airs at 11 PM EST time. For an independent artist Ashanti sure can book shows! I give her that. I can't say much else right now but I'm excited to see her on the show nonetheless.

Something else that may get your attention, I was reading how Beyonce supposedly scrapped 50 songs from her upcoming album. Beyonce's new album has been shrouded in mystery, as most of her albums are. Of course the producers she occasionally works with, Sean Garrett and The-Dream and Ne-Yo like to give updates here and now. But I'm sure an album was planned and supposed to be released. Beyonce is doing too much right now not to have an album to support. She's touring. She's in commercials. Beyonce's album was reportedly titled Mrs. Carter and rightfully so her tour is named The Mrs. Carter Show.

I guess that long awaited Beyonce album will come in due time. I do believe Beyonce is taking her time with this album and making sure its right. Can't fault no artist for that but the fans are disappointed because they've been expecting an album for awhile now.

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…
