I've always been a Destiny's Child fan. I remember back when them other two original puppets, Latoya and Latavia, use to get their strings pulled by Beyonce.
Yesterday Kelly Rowland stopped through 106 & Park. Looking good as always, she was probably in town because Beyonce performed at a benefit at the Wall Street Cipriani. When Julissa and Mad Linx asked her what was her favorite dance song of all time... she said "Crazy In Love". When they asked her what were some of her favorites from the new #1s cd she responded "Check On It" by Beyonce.
In all fairness she named a couple other songs, but to have Beyonce's new song as one of your favorites already is just gross. Those girls are so brainwashed in the whole campaign to support Beyonce that they lose not only their breath, but their whole identities.
But I guess it matters not when you've got the #1 cd in the country. Destiny's Child comes in at #1 this week on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as on the R&B/Hip Hop charts.
Y'all better "Stand Up for Love". It must be a good feeling to know you are going out at the top of your game. Forget who you had to pimp, lie to, force to sing background or kick out the group along the way.
Rounding out this week's charts are Stevie Wonder (A Time To Love), Alicia Keys (Unplugged), Keyshia Cole (The Way It Is), Toni Braxton (Libra), Dwele (Some Kinda), Mariah Carey (Emancipation), Charlie Wilson (First Name...) and Ray J who's video for "One Wish" is in heavy rotation over there at Launch.com.
Oh and here are a few reminders:
1. Mariah's Emancipation cd has been re-released with extra songs, videos and other goodies
2. Chris Brown is sneaking up on Kanye's heels with "Run It" and may make #1
3. Kelly Rowland will appear on "Girlfriends"
4. Michelle Williams will be on "Half & Half"
