R&B songstress Tamia premiered the video for her latest single ‘Almost’ on her MySpace page yesterday. The song (as well as Tamia’s whole album ‘Between Friends’) stands as one of my favourites this year and I’m glad it got the single treatment. I was going to write about how sad it is that she is still so underrated, however putting out such timeless music, in an age when quality doesn’t necessarily equal good sales, is an achievement in itself. For those who have yet to pick up ‘Between Friends’, I highly recommend it.
What do you think of the video?

The Queen of Hip Hop/Soul, Mary J. Blige has teamed up with funk-rock collective Maroon 5 for a remix to the band’s current single ‘Wake Up Call’. Produced by Mark Ronson, the remix works on a number of fronts – it’s great to see Mary venturing out of her R&B niche as she did with her collabo with U2 on ‘One’.
Hit or Miss?

According to The Washington Post’s
review of a recent Bobby Brown show, things for the ‘My Prerogative’ singer are going from bad to worse. Check out the review below:
Although his pelvic thrusts were geriatric and his tongue aerobics creepy, Brown got through his portion of the New Jack Swing show without major incident. The “King of R&B” (who appeared with one-half of Jodeci, two-thirds of Tony! Toni! Tone! and one-third of Guy) ably revisited his post-New Edition, pre-Whitney Houston peak, including “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Roni” and, of course, “My Prerogative.” As is always the case with Brown, however, what he said was far more interesting than what he sang.
“Baltimore!” Brown shouted at one point. When the crowd failed to react, he asked, “Where am I right now?” After figuring out he was playing to a Washington crowd, Brown said, “They told me I was in Baltimore — I guess so I could come out here and embarrass myself.” The singer also played coy about his reported October heart attack: “You all think I had a heart attack, but I’m all right. I made it. They told me I had an hour and 15 minutes, now they’re telling me I only got 40. I only got 40 minutes, but I still got broke off. I can pay child support for another year — y’all won’t be seein’ my [behind] in jail no more!”
