Kelly Rowland on Essence magazine and Azealia Banks on Playboy magazine

COVER GIRLS: So here's a little news for you all on this lovely Saturday night. Kelly Rowland and her family appear on the newest issue of Essence magazine. Azealia Banks is the cover girl from the April issue of Playboy. Rihanna is the new face of Dior, making her the first black woman to ink a deal with the legendary fashion brand. It's crazy because all of the black models we have and they've never been the face of Dior. Quite strange I might add but congrats to Rihanna! What do you all think about Rihanna being the face of Dior? To be honest I can see why she was picked though. Rihanna is young, vibrant, and she's pretty likeable and best of all she will tell you off in a heartbeat. BEAT AROUND THE "BUSH": On the album release front, Snoop Dogg will release his new album, "Bush" on May 12. The album features the first single "Peaches & Cream" featuring Charlie Wilson. When I first heard the snippet, the song produced by Pharrell instantly reminded me of Jennifer Hudson's "Just That Type of Girl" song on her "JHUD" album. Ironically it was also produced by Pharrell. It just goes to show that as much as I love Pharrell as a producer and a beatsmith, he is getting a little lazy with the productions. No wonder why he was sued by the Marvin Gaye family! I can say they were probably in need of some money too. Speaking of that whole mess, it looks like the Marvin Gaye family is not content with their payout for the "Blurred Lines" debacle. They are now going after Pharrell for his hit song "Happy". They are saying that the song emulates another Marvin Gaye song "Ain't That Peculiar". I even went to listen for myself and I really didn't see the resembalance. It also got me thinking that if "Blurred Lines" wasn't the monster hit it was, there would no lawsuit. Think about that! So until next time folks, enjoy the rest of your weekend.

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…
