Azealia Banks mad at singer for copying her style

Another day. Another Azealia Banks beef. This time Azealia is upset at up and coming singer SZA(whose new album, "Ctrl" debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 Charts) who she feels copied her style in her video for "Drew Barrymore"(which also features the famed actress). There was a still (click here to see it) floating around of SZA from her video that IMMEDIATELY reminded me of Azealia Banks' "Slay-Z" mixtape(click here to see it) when I seen it. Before I know it, Azealia was tweeting about it and of course social media picked up on as it will with their own thoughts. Now I will say the still of SZA was definitely influenced by Azealia. Now whether it was SZA herself or her costume designer for the video, the influence is obvious in my opinion. You know they say "imitation is the highest form of flattery". I don't have anything against SZA but I'm just stating the obvious. Of course Azealia went on to say how she had a boxing party and SZA ate all her chicken wings and she asked Azealia to guest on a verse for the song, "Doves In The Wind"("Cranes In The Sky" anyone?) but obviously that didn't happen. What do you guys think? Do you think SZA was somewhat influenced by Azealia Banks for her look in her "Drew Barrymore" video?

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…
