Jay-Z's releases new album, calls out Kanye West

Jay-Z's much anticipated album, "4:44" was released last night via streaming service TIDAL(which Jay-Z co-owns). Cellular phone service Sprint offered its current customers and future customers 6 free months if they signed up for TIDAL. Jay-Z famously scored a deal with Sprint which helped house the album. The response to the Jay-Z's new album has been overwhelming to say the least. Here's what I know(and read considering I haven't heard the album yet). No I.D. produced the album. Jay-Z name checks(and disses) Kanye West, Solange, Eric Benet(actress Halle Berry's ex-husbad), OJ Simpson(song: "The Story of OJ" and I'm assuming it references the football athlete), Future, Diddy, etc. Jay shockingly opens up about his marriage with Beyoncé(involving infidelity, stillborns, egos, children etc.). The album is currently being celebrated via social media and beyond. It is a welcome return for the New York emcee! In other music news...Socialite and designers Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner are in hot water after T-Shirts featuring the images of rap legends, Biggie and 2 Pac went out for sale via their new fashion line. The ladies have since issued an apology after being called out by Biggie's mother, Voletta Wallace. Ms. Wallace expressed her disdain labeling their act as  "disgusting"among other things. She also spoke out for 2 Pac as well. Suge Knight's son also spoke out threatening the girls issuing a "warning". Perhaps the most interesting jab was from outspoken TV host(of "The Talk") Sharon Osbourne. One of the many T-shirts that were for sale featured her husband, Ozzy Osbourne. Sharon took to her social media to tell the girls to "stick to what you know...lip gloss". One of the best kiss offs I've read this year! I loved it and I love Sharon Osbourne. Sharon's such a classy lady but she will get you together very quickly. You've been warned!

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…
