Music Feed: Grammy Awards 2014

Chal is serving the TEA!
The Grammy Awards 2014 just went down and there were a lot of winners and a lot of losers. I think one of the biggest upsets I saw on Twitter and Facebook was that Kendrick Lamar won none of the seven awards he was nominated for. There were bits and pieces of the Grammy telecast that I missed. I was switching between the Grammys and RHOA. I did manage to compile the most up-to-date list of the Grammy winners, performers, and presenters. Like I said its not every single winner but its the majority of them. What was your favorite Grammy moment? Well mine was Beyonce and Jay Z performing Drunk In Love of course. I had already mentioned it in the previous post though.

Anyway check out the list of presenters, performers, winners, and my personal highlights.

Highlights: There were a few highlights I managed to notice while watching the Grammys. Here they are in no particular order, first, Madonna looked and sounded like a bad country singer. I wasn't feeling it. Yoko Ono was definitely feeling herself in the crowd as she danced along to some of the performances tonight. Then there were many of the stars I saw in the audience getting down to the music including Steven Tyler, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, and Jay Z. And I'm not sure of how many of you noticed Beyonce in the audience sipping on a glass of wine. Classy indeed! Damn! I'm forgetting the other highlights...oh Jamie Foxx who slurred over his words because he was so mesmerized by Beyonce's presence. And I think that's it. Until next time folks!

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…
