Beyonce's Album Not Available At Target, R&B Divas L.A. Gets Two New Divas

Chal is about to tell it like it T I S.
If you plan on buying a physical copy of Beyonce's new self-titled album, don't plan on buying it from retail giant Target. The store has decided not to carry Beyonce's new album largely in part due to iTunes getting the exclusive first. It is noted that iTunes is music's biggest retailer so rightfully so Bee would partner up with them. I do understand Target's reasoning to an extent only because they lose out on revenue, to the tune of 617K(that's the amount of copies Bee's new album has sold in the last three days in the US). Maybe Target will come around after they get over their hissy fit. This is not the first time Target has refused to carry an artist's album. The store refused to sell physical copies of Frank Ocean's channel Orange album when the album appeared on iTunes days before its physical release. Target eventually gave in and started carrying the album months down the line.

Speaking of divas, it has been announced that R&B Divas L.A. will now have two new cast mates, singers Chrisette Michele and Leela James(song: Change Is Gonna Come). Filming for the show is already set to begin and the show will premiere in the second quarter of 2014(April-June). Gone are Kelly Price and Dawn Robinson, with good reason. Viewers disliked both singers on the show and they were pretty annoying. I'm glad to see them leave and I'm wondering how the show will fare with the new cast mates. Thoughts?

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. 

This song begins with echos of Janet saying " 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…
