Ashanti Enlists Nelly & Akon For Next Single

Ashanti Enlists Nelly & Akon For Next SingleIt has been confirmed that Ashanti is set to release ‘Body On Me’ as the next single from her forthcoming LP ‘The Declaration’ (due June 3rd). The track is a collaboration with rumored boyfriend Nelly and Akon. {Source}
I’m assuming the song is a reworked version of a new Nelly and Akon track, of the same name, which surfaced a few weeks back. Though Ashanti doesn’t seem to appear on that version, I’m pretty sure it’s her singing background vocals on the track (click here to listen). In any case, I’m pretty amped so see what ‘The Declaration’ will be serving up.

Any thoughts?

Olivia Speaks Out

Former G-Unit vixen Olivia recently sat down with Carlos King to discuss a number issues including her highly publicized split from the rap collective, her new album, romance and more. Check it out:

It was good to see her give a little clarity to the situation. Here’s hoping she’s found the right label that will handle her project correctly, as the list of producers featured on the record are pretty impressive (Bryan Michael Cox, Darkchild, Missy Elliott etc).

New Song: Ashanti – ‘In These Streets’

Ashanti - 'In These Streets'As Ashanti readies her fourth studio LP ‘The Declaration’ for a June 3rd release, a new track from the set has surfaced. Though the mid-tempo ‘In These Streets’ is a solid cut, this is very much album-only material. Decent.

Raven Covers JET Magazine

Raven Covers JET MagazineActress/singer Raven-Symone features in the latest issue of JET magazine. As well as talking about her forthcoming album, she spoke about being proud of her ‘voluptuous’ shape:

‘”I have to stay true to who I am’, says Disney star Raven-Symoné, 22, regarding her new self-titled CD, which is slated for release April 29. ‘I am not going to sing about sex, drugs and violence, that’s just not who I am’, she continues. As she prepares for the CD’s release and a 55-city Pajama Party concert tour, the confident and talented entertainer hopes this project will fill a void in today’s music. We need some music that will open people’s minds up and give them other things to think about other than the same things we have been giving them for a while. Maybe my album can do that.’

While the 5-foot-2-inch singer-actress stays true to her music, she’s also staying true to her image by being comfortable with her size. ‘When I look in the mirror and see how voluptuously fabulous I am, I can’t even worry about it. I am just fabulous.’”

It’s always good to see artists going against what has, sadly, become the industry’s norm – looks over talent. Random tidbit: Irrespective of how hard I try, I can’t seem to shake the ‘Disney’ association with Raven; the odd look she has on her face doesn’t really help matters.

Ashanti Performs ‘The Way That I Love You’ Live

R&B star Ashanti performed her current single ‘The Way That I Love You’ last night at Hot 107.9’s Hot on The Runway Fashion Show in Atlanta. Check out how she did below:

Despite not doing much stage-wise, I really enjoyed her performance.Yes, she isn’t the best vocalist, but I’ve never understood the claims that she can’t sing. This performance really highlights her improved live vocals. Good stuff.

What do you think of the performance?

Ashanti – ‘The Declaration’ Cover

Ashanti - 'The Declaration' CoverThe official album cover for Ashanti’s new LP ‘The Declaration’ surfaced today via UrbanBridgez.com. What can I say? She looks stunning. I see Ashanti as more ‘girl next door’ as opposed to a grand diva, so the cover was initially kinda surprising. Still, I can’t fault this at all. Here’s hoping what’s most important, the music, is just as good.

What do you think of the cover?

Mary J. Blige – ‘Stay Down’ Video

After months of next-to-no word on the status of Mary J. Blige’s ‘Growing Pains’ project, the video for the album’s 2nd single, ‘Stay Down’, premiered today. While the song is a personal favourite, I can not defend this mess of a video. The cheap, uninspired vid, which was directed by Hype Williams, has me thinking the budget for the whole project must be drying up fast. Odd, considering she’s only released one single from the record prior to this. On a more positive note, Mary looked great.

What do you think of the video?

Angie Martinez Interviews Ashanti

R&B star Ashanti stopped by New York’s HOT 97 radio station earlier this week for an interview with Angie Martinez. The singer spoke on a number of things including her current status with The Inc, Nelly and, of course, her new album ‘The Declaration’. Check it out:

Great interview; she came across really well. Saying that, she needs to be honest about the whole situation with The Inc. After all, if it was all good Irv Gotti and Ja Rule wouldn’t be speaking of her negatively to anyone that will listen.

New Song: Michelle Williams – ”Until The End Of The World’

Michelle Williams - ''Until The End Of The World' Thus far this week, it appears as if new Michelle Williams material has been surfacing on the daily. I can’t complain though, as much of what has been seen/heard is very promising. Set to feature on the soundtrack for the much-anticipated ‘Sex & The City’ movie, ‘Until The End Of The World’ is an uptempo Synth-Pop cut that is very much in the same vain as the sound Michelle has been channeling on her records as of late. I’m really feeling this one, especially the bridge. She really is carving out a great niche for herself musically that should still appeal to the masses.
I must give kudos to Michelle’s team this go-round; from the debut of her single on People.com, to the placement on the soundtrack for such a high-profile movie to…everything. As a result there seems to be a serious buzz about Michelle’s project. She really does seem destined for much deserved solo success.

The Boondocks: The Banned Episode

Like many of you, I follow popular TV show ‘The Boondocks’. Controversially, one the episodes of the show’s current season ‘The Huey Freeman Hunger Strike’ was banned, however it has recently hit the net. The episode takes aim at BET. Check it out below:

I like me some ‘Boondocks’ and can see where some of their points came from, but I’m not sure I wholly agree with what this episode conveys. I know, I’m not the only one with an opinion on this…
