Omarion mad at Grammy snub

So the Grammy nominations came out yesterday and no one was more upset than Omarion. The R&B star/reality TV star felt snubbed after his single, "Post To Be" featuring Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko failed to get a nomination. Omarion took to Twitter to express his disdan and in turn caught a lot of flack for his words. Do you think Omarion should of been nominated? I was listening to "The Breakfast Club" this morning and they had some valid points about Omarion's argument. First, the song was a hit, no doubt. But also they said that Omarion won a Soul Train award but didn't show up to accept the award. But artists want to be acknowledged by the Grammy awards and then when they are not, they cry wolf. Many artists want to be acknowledged by the Grammys because the Grammys are the most prestigious award a musician can receive. Think of it this way, a Grammy to a musician is what an Oscar is to an actor. Going back to what I was saying though, some musicians are quick to say "I don't need a Grammy" but will cry the minute they are not nominated. Omarion contends he was not upset though. I beg to differ. In other Grammy news, Tamar Braxton was nominated for Best R&B Performance for "If I Don't Have You". Miguel's "Coffee" was nominated for Best R&B Song. J. Cole's "Apparently" was nominated for Best Rap Performance. Miguel's "Wildheart" album was nominated for Best Urban Contemporary Album. For the complete list of nominees you'll have to head to the Grammy website or just Google it. Well that's it for today folks! Thanks for reading!

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…
