Janet Jackson, Beyoncé and Ashanti speak out on the recent killings among black men

Janet Jackson is one of the many artists who is speaking out against the recent killings of innocent black men by police officers. Janet posted a video to her Facebook account called, "Can't Be Stopped" featuring several hashtags dedicated to the those whose lives were lost.  Beyoncé had a moment of silence during her "Formation World Tour" and listed all the names of the various victims that have lost their lives over a big screen. Other stars that have spoken out during this genocide include Ashanti, Demi Lovato, Pink, Taraji P. Henson(show: "Empire"), etc. Many are upset at those artists who have chose not to speak up but that is their choice. It doesn't mean they don't care or are not personally affected by this genocide, but we should keep that in mind. But I think as a public figure nowadays when their all practically very active on social media posting business ventures, trips, music, etc, you would think they would take the time to post something. Last night several Dallas police officers were shot and killed after a protest in Dallas. They've said to have one man in custody and is looking for another. I can't say I'm surprised this has happened. It is unfortunate that innocent lives are being taken left and right. #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter #StopKillingOurBlackMenPoliceOfficers #BlacksStopKillingBlacks #LetsStandTogether

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…
