Chris Brown Honored At BET Awards, 'The Real' Talk Show Returns

Any news is better than no news.
 CHRIS BROWN HONORED: Chris Brown just got out of a jail and he will now reportedly be hitting the BET stage just in time for the awards airing June 29. Word is that Chris is being honored for his contribution to music. Say what? Speaking of the BET Awards its been announced that Drake, Lil' Wayne, Usher, Jennifer Hudson will be performing for the festivities. THE REAL: Daytime TV talk show The Real which is hosted by Tamar Braxton among others will return on September 15. The show which premiered last year(I believe) had a test run which did well enough to warrant a second season of the show. Congrats! Will you all be watching or nah? BELIEVE: Keyshia Cole is said to release a new single next week titled Believer. The outspoken singer previewed the song via her Instagram account. Believer is the follow up to previous singles Rick James and Next Time. Keyshia's new album Point of No Return is due this Summer and is her last album under the Interscope label. ELUSIVE, INDEED: Mariah Carey's new album, Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse arrived to little fanfare. Estimated sales for Mariah's new album are around 56,000 copies. Ouch! That's not good at all. Being that the album is only available on iTunes may of played a part in the dismal sales. Then again I doubt it. Mariah had no real hit single this time around and the constant pushbacks hurt the album's chance as well. I previewed the album and I wasn't impressed. I even went back a second time and previewed again and still felt the same. Poor Mariah! Back to the drawing board you go. It looks like the magic between you and Jermaine Dupri is rather stale. Mariah's fans Lambs have been pretty vocal regarding Jermaine's involvement this time around and now it will only continue to go downhill now that the album's first week sales are in.

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…
