Nicki Minaj announces new album and Solange's new album hits #1

I need a new Nicki picture.
Good evening! I'm sitting here on laptop of course and the movie, "Honey" starring Jessica Alba is on BET. Its been awhile since I seen this so I figure I'd watch. So here are some updates for you all for the music news obsessed.
  • Nicki Minaj had the social media world in a tizzy last night when she revealed she had a new album releasing. The album titled, "#PickMyFruitOut" featured a tracklisting tweeted out by Nicki, 1 through 9 with fruits as the song titles. Last but not least, she revealed that track 10 would feature her favorite rapper. Well turns out for now, the news was just a hoax. But people have been on standby on music streaming services to see if an actual album existed. Then again maybe this is not the album but one may be on the way to being released. 
  • Congratulations to Solange! Her album, "A Seat at the Table" is #1 on the Billboard charts with 72,000 units sold and streamed. This is Solange's first number 1 album and she and Beyoncé set a record for siblings to release same number 1 albums in the same year. This feature hasn't been done since 2001 when Janet and Michael Jackson released "All For You" and "Invincible" respectively. 
  • Dr. Dre is threatening to sue Sony if he's misrepresented in the biopic for ex, Michel'e, "Surviving Compton" which will air on Lifetime on October 15. If your familiar with Michel'e and her story, she's accused Dr. Dre of abusing her while she was in a relationship with him. This is common knowledge to most folks though who have followed this story over the years. My thing is this, its Michel'e story, so if she says she was abused, then she was abused. I believe it happened. Years ago Dr. Dre came out and apologized for the ex-lovers he had hurt. While he didn't name anyone by name, one could guess he was referring to Michel'e. Biopics are always welcome events nowadays but its the people that get portrayed in the films that usually have a problem with it. Remember when Pebbles, TLC's ex-manager sued the duo and Viacom for a false portrayal of her?

Well everyone enjoy the rest of your weekend! Check back again for more updates!

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…
