Mariah Carey Mad At Kanye West, Island Def Jam

Mariah Carey is fuming! She is mad at her record company Island Def Jam for investing too much energy into Kanye Wests' recent album Yeezus. While on the other hand her upcoming album reportedly titled The Art Of Letting Go has been on the back burner. Originally set for release on July 23 The Art Of Letting Go was pushed back when Mariah clamored to finish up the album. The album's first single #Beautiful featuring Miguel was a hit! It probably wasn't as a big of a hit as Mariah and Island Def Jam imagined it to be. It was still a decent chart showing for an artist of her repertoire.

It was during a recent meeting with Island Def Jam that Mariah allegedly threw a diva fit! She accused Kanye West of being a "self-centered cry baby". A label exec who heard the rant went back and told Kanye. Kanye has since reached out to Mariah but Mariah has yet to return his calls.

If that's not an interesting story for you I have one that may be even more interesting. I remember learning about a story from back in the day about Mariah. Reportedly she was visiting the Sony Records offices in New York City. She came across a poster of label mate Celine Dion that was significantly larger than hers and made a big fuss.

So what do you think about Mariah sounding off on Kanye? Do you agree with what she said? We all know Kanye is a "self centered cry baby" but that's definitely not helping that album of his move off the shelves now is it? What Kanye's Yeezus album has sold commercially as of now(500,000+) is usually what he does first week in sales. So you can see the drop off in sales.

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…
