Kelly Rowland Released From Label, J-Hud Announces New Album Date

Any news is good news.
Greetings everyone! So its being revealed that Kelly Rowland asked to be dropped from Universal Republic Records. It was being reported originally that the singer was dropped. Kelly felt that her label was not supporting her properly. Isn't that usually the case when it comes to R&B acts anyway? I do however think Kelly got a pretty big push. She had multiple singles released but her album only sold 215,000 copies. That's pretty normal when it comes to R&B acts though, that number anyway. By no means is the number great but its what we've come to expect. Anyway its also being reported that Kelly has been unhappy with her label since December. She wanted her label to release a single during her stint on X Factor but they denied. Universal Republic probably felt like there was no point in releasing anymore singles since they had already released a hand full of singles. Then again I'm not sure why they just didn't go ahead and release another single. Her singles from her Talk A Good Game did moderately well. After all Kisses Down Low was certified gold. Jennifer Hudson will release her new album on May 27. The album's second single, which has yet to be announced is produced by Timbaland. I'm not sure how I feel about J-Hud singing over Timbaland beats. Timbaland's beats are usually very busy. I prefer J-Hud when she is singing songs produced by R. Kelly like Where You At? but that's just me.

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…
