Azealia Banks addresses skin lighting controversy and Brandy forced to cancel European tour

Azealia Banks has the internet talking again! This time she's taking on the whole skin lighting controversy which has plagued the black community in recent years. Many stars have been accused of lighting their skin either for financial gain or for their own personal insecurities. In typical Azealia Banks fashion she shot back at critics who has criticized her. Azealia posted several videos on her Facebook and Instagram account explaining her decision to lighten her skin and what it means to her. What do you think about stars lighting their skin? Most recently Lil' Kim came under fire for a much lighter complexion. Are stars getting out of control? Brandy has been forced to cancel her European tour due to vocal strain. She was advised to take a vocal rest or she would severe her vocal chords and we can't have that. Brandy thanked fans for their support and promised to make up the dates in the future. How unfortunate! I know Brandy was performing her ass off every night and delivering vocally. I would love if Brandy brought her show to the states but I can understand why she did it overseas versus over here. Last but not least Frank Ocean has dropped a cryptic picture of a library due date card with multiple dates stamped on it. All the stamped dates go back to when Frank was alleged to drop his new album. The most recent date says July 2016 which has many believing that Frank will finally deliver his long awaited follow up to "channelOrange" this month. Are you all ready for the new Frank Ocean album? I know I am. I've been ready! #boysdontcry Eat ya hear out Miguel! Haha!

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…
