Ashanti Stars In Christmas Movie, Fantasia Goes To Broadway

I know! I know! I have more Ashanti news. Believe me if I knew this all in one sitting I would surely post it together. Anyway Ashanti will star in a new movie, Christmas In The City which will air on the Lifetime network on December 7. Ashanti plays a consultant who overtakes the direction of a department store.

I have to take my hat off to Ashanti. She has really been grinding. She has been landing quite a number of acting roles lately, NBC's SUV and ABC's Modern Family. Next year Ashanti will hopefully finally release her long awaited album BraveHeart due in March.

Someone who showed Ashanti some a love a few months ago was Fantasia. She is keeping herself busy by partaking in a Broadway production, After Midnight. The show focuses on the influence of many of our Jazz and Blues greats from over the years. The show starts on October 18.

Meanwhile Fantasia has chosen The Side Effects Of You as the third single off her album of the same name.

You all been watching TV lately? Well I've said it before but I am a reality TV fanatic and I'm getting excited about the possible spin off of Love & Hip Hop L.A. The casting and rumors of the show are starting to heat up more. The word on the street is that VH1 has asked Mona Scott Young(EP) to narrow down which city they focus on; L.A., New Orleans, and Houston. Young is apparently focused on getting the L.A. spin off off the ground.

The show is likely to star Ray J and his girlfriend Teairra Mari(song: Sponsor) as well as several other cast mates. It's also being said that Ray J may EP the show along with Young. This wouldn't be surprising though as Ray J already has a relationship with VH1. He and sister Brandy starred in a VH1 show for two season; Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business.

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…
