If you need to give your Mary J Blige cd a rest, then Heather Headley might not be a bad choice if your in the mood for power vocals. Her new cd "In My Mind" is the follow up to her 2002 debut and is climbing the adult R&B charts.
India.Arie has a new track bubbling under. Her new song "I Am Not My Hair" is definitively that .ARIE style but the subject matter is so passe at this point. I am happy India is still pumping out music. I loved her first two cds but this single gets a 7 on a scale of 1 - 10. Can she not have a cause or campaign? Can India just sing and have a good time? Nevertheless I like India so much that it doesn't matter.
Otherwise we have Jaheim on tap to release Ghetto Classics on Valentines Day. LL Cool J and Jennifer Lopez have a new single on the radio that I can't seem to hear the entire version of.
Finally, Jermaine Dupri is feeling the creative bug bite him again as he is now in the studio working on Monica's album and I contemplating a duet between Janet and Mariah. Y'all, I really don't make this shit up. Honestly....
