Ashanti Pushes Album Back, Beyonce Outsells Last Album

Hey y'all! How is everyone's Saturday night shaping up? Mine is great. I've been out and about earlier today now I'm just at home relaxing watching this free HBO. Of course all the while I was surfing the internet(do you people even still say that) and I found out that Ashanti has pushed her album back once again. I'm assuming this is the last time it'll be pushed back. The new date for BraveHeart is March 4. The album will feature the Rick Ross assisted single I Got It. A video is in the works and should debut soon. I was expecting a pushback and I'm hoping this is the absolute last pushback. Only time will tell though. #braveheart #2014

In other music news...Beyonce's recently released self-titled album has outsold her last album 4. 4 has sold 1.3 million copies in its initial run. That's the amount that Beyonce has sold in 4 weeks time. Beyonce features the hit singles XO and Drunk In Love. I don't get why this is news but it is news. When you think about albums and someone such as Beyonce who has a few albums under her belt, albums sell differently overtime depending on a variety of factors. Beyonce was released at the right time. There was already an anticipation for this album and once the album was secretly released, fans went wild and had to grasp their copy of the album. 4 was heavily anticipated as well but it didn't help that the album's lead single Run The World(Girls) was poorly received on the charts. It didn't help matters when the other follow up singles weren't as huge as previous Beyonce's singles. Not to say 4 wasn't a good album because it was a really good album in my opinion, but Beyonce(the album) had a little more hyped tied to it hence it selling so many copies in such a short amount of time.

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…
