Beyoncé called out by Carlos Santana

  • So..the Grammys were Sunday and I watched bits and pieces of the telecast. The Grammys were on the same time as "RHOA" so that had my attention. I did see Chance The Rapper win for Best New Artist. I saw the tail end of Beyoncé's performance which had everyone talking...of course. As for the winners, Beyoncé won for Best Urban Contemporary Album. Adele won in the major categories like Album Of the Year etc. I would say Rihanna was the best dressed and she gave 0 fucks in the audience as she was seen blowing kisses to Beyoncé and drinking from a flask. I do admire that about Rihanna that she is so badass and she give 0 fucks. Other winners included Drake for "Hotline Bling" and Solange for "Cranes In the Sky".
  • Sunday saw the release of several of Prince's catalog released to several streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music. Princes' catalog was previously already available on Tidal music. I was glad to hear this because I could finally download my favorite Prince song, "Scandalous" back to my phone. Now if Aaliyah's catalog will finally be released to streaming music and stay there. One can only hope. 
  • Carlos Santana, the famous guitarist is under fire for comments about Beyoncé. He likened Adele to a being more that of a real singer and Beyoncé's music was more for modeling. The comment didn't sit well with Beyoncé's fans and in typical fashion, they went in. Now I wasn't fortunate to see the awful things they said of Mr. Santana but I can only imagine. 
In other music news...
  • VH1's "Hip Hop Squares" will air this March. 
  • Future will release his new self-titled album on February 17.
  • Nick Cannon quits NBC's "America's Got Talent". 
  • Mariah Carey's "I Don't" single debuts at #89 on the Billboard Hot 100.
  • Katy Perry under fire for shading Britney Spears with "shaving head" comments.

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. 

This song begins with echos of Janet saying " 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…
