While Michael Jackson and DJ Whoo Kid have confirmed that they are in bed together, having a menage a toi with Fiddy will just have to wait.
We are getting closer and closer to July 11th, the release date of Kelly Rowland's My Story... Kelly Rowland.
Today Rhianna releases her second solo cd today titled A Girl Like Me just eight months after her debut cd Music of the Sun. She is a member of that fresh batch of kittens that also include Christina Milian who have come for the job.
Kelly Rowland is preparing to release her second solo album My Story... Kelly Rowland on July 11th. Letoya Luckett, one of the dethrowned orginal members of Destiny's Child, is scheduled to release her debut cd, LeToya, on July 18th. Ladies and gentleman, welcome to R&B Celebrity Deathmatch!
It's no secret the SOHH Soul Man is in love with Mariah Carey, or should I say Mariah Carey's music. Even back in the days when she was doing straight up pop and adult contemporary type compositions like "Music Box", "Can't Let Go" and "I Don't Want To Cry". However this latest video for "Say Something" has got me, for the first time, looking at Mimi a little screw faced.
In true fashion, the universal language music unites or is it that all we like to do is party? Either way it seems to have definitely been a party at R. Kelly's Light It Up concert here in New York City this past Tuesday.
Since Jamie Foxx's album, Unpredictable, went double platinum, his already larger than life ego has tipped the scales. Despite the recent efforts made by Jaheim, Van Hunt, Mary J. Blige, NeYo, Gnarls Barkley and many others Jamie claims he is here to save R&B... WTF?
I was watching 106 & Park yesterday and I caught 50 Cent & Olivia's video for "Best Friend" from the Get Rich or Die Tryin' Soundtrack. After all this time with G-Unit, why ain't Olivia bangin' yet?
Do people think every light-skinned black girl who has blonde hair has to say that she wants to be like Beyonce? That's not the case. My career has been a 13-year process. I didn't even know about her until five years ago. I try to set myself apart from everyone else. I am a different person.
But come on now...
Some time last year a Janet Jackson track titled "Pops Up", which was produced by Rich Harrison surfaced on the internet. Well, it turns out the very same track is being reworked and is scheduled to be on Janet's upcoming cd 20 Years Old, slated for a September release.
Itâ€™s pretty easy to get caught up in the hype and glamour of the entertainment industry. But every now and then an artist, a rare artist, will use their music to affect change. Similar to Marvin Gaye, Goapele vows to Change It All with her new album and her commitment to social reform and activism.
One Mariahâ€™s favorite lines has always been, â€œIf Jermaine likes it, then I like it!â€ And sohhâ€¦ the song lives on.
According to MTV Radio:
Jermaine Dupri has been saying he'd like to pair up his two favorite female singers â€" his girlfriend, Janet Jackson, and his longtime collaborator Mariah Carey â€" for a duet. Carey says while Dupri hasn't approached her with the idea, she'd consider doing it. "I love Janet," Carey told MTV Radio. "I've been a big fan of Janet's since 'Control.' So if Jermaine has a concept, we should go and write something."
SOHH Janetâ€¦ if itâ€™s worth your while SAY SOMETHING!
Mary J. Blige is having a pretty triumphant run as the Queen of Hip Hop Soul. Her current cd, The Breakthrough is a personal best and the single "Be Without You" is #1 for the 15th week in a row on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Charts. DAMN... thats longer than Deborah Cox's "Nobody's Suppose to Be Here" and Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together". So what's next for Mary you ask. Well...
Kelly Rowland previewed her new album, tentatively titled My Story... Kelly Rowland here in NYC yesterday. At first listen I still say, Kelly Rowland ain't worth the bullet... or the time it takes to load the gun.
R&B takes a back seat on the charts this week as T.I. and Ghostface land the #1 and #2 spots on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Charts. But counting only R&B....
Labelmates Rhianna and NeYo will be teaming up for a duet, which is scheduled to be the second single from Rhianna's album, A Girl Like Me. The song is titled "Unfaithful". Now, how did Rhinna get two albums in less than one year?
Mary J. Blige snagged 50cent aka Curtis Jackson to be the leading man in her "Enough Cryin'" video.
