Young Thug, Jamie Foxx, Drake, and Trey Songz to release new albums

R.I.P. Hey people! I've been away for a few days but not intentionally. I guess I do have a life outside of this blogging thing. :) Sad news in R&B as it was reported a few days ago that Johnny Kemp, 80s singer who sung the song "Just Got Paid" passed away at age 55. In other sad news Ben Powers, who starred on the 70s sitcom "Good Times" died. He was 64 years ago. If the name doesn't register he played Thelma's husband in the later years of the show, by this time James(the father) had died and Janet Jackson was starring as Penny. R.I.H. ALBUM NEWS: On the album release front, we have new albums from Young Thug, "Barter 6" was just released but his proper debut album, "HY!*UN35"(which translates to High Tunes) will be released on August 28. Jamie Foxx will release his new album "Hollywood" on May 18. The album features the single "You Changed" featuring Chris Brown. The new album from Drake, "Views From The 6" which is said to feature a collaboration with Beyonce. There's no release date for "Views" but its the proper followup to his last album "Nothing Was The Same" as "If Your Reading This It's Too Late" was pegged more as a mixtape but will get a physical release this month. Drake's buddy, Trey Songz will release his album "Trigga Reloaded" on June 23 which features "Slow Motion"(not sure if I reported this already or not). So what album are you looking forward to the most? Well enjoy your Sunday people and I'll be back with more news once some more becomes available. :)

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…
