Chris Brown Performs At Lil’ Wayne Show; Proclaimed The New King Of Pop

Rapper Lil’ Wayne brought embattled singer Chris Brown out as a surprise guest during his set at ‘America’s Most Wanted Festival’ in Virginia. As well as performing his part on Weezy collabo ‘Every Girl’, Brown also gave an impromptu tribute to his idol the King of Pop Michael Jackson, who died in June (still cannot believe I just typed that…), moonwalking to ‘Billie Jean’, while Lil’ Wayne proclaimed him the new King of Pop.
I guess it kinda goes without saying that Wayne was probably sipping on that syrup when he spouted that line, because there is and never will be no other King of Pop. Yes, new talent will emerge and become great, but that title is for one and one only.
About Chris, it’s good to see him getting out there again on the music tip, something someone should really recommend to Rihanna – as opposed to the constant paparazzi shots of her parading up and down. As much as it may pain some to hear this, life goes on. Whether Chris reaches the dizzy-heights of success he was very much on the brink of pre-ChRihanna-gate remains to be seen, yet the fact he’s getting on with things is commendable.

Hot on the promo trail for her ‘In A Perfect World…’ LP, Keri Hilson performed smash ‘Turnin’ Me On’ with Lil’ Wayne on Jimmy Kimmel last night.  She also performed ‘Energy’, which you can view below. Pretty good performances, though I’m eager to see her perform more cuts from her awesome album.

New Song: Omarion – ‘Comfort (ft. Lil’ Wayne)’

With Chris Brown’s career currently in tatters, the male R&B market definitely seems to have an opening for a new heavyweight – (re)enter Omarion. The former B2K front-man has enjoyed limited success in his quest for solo stardom, however looks set to make another crack at the big time with his new label deal with Timbaland’s Mosely Group / Interscope imprint. While it’s unknown when exactly Omarion’s 3rd LP will drop, this new cut called ‘Comfort’ is said to be the record’s first single.
Produced by Timbaland and featuring Lil’ Wayne, ‘Comfort’, put simply, is a pretty decent mid-tempo (with a thump) which could very well prove a hit in the current marketplace – which seems to favour the repetitiveness of a chorus (“Comfort, comfort, comfort”). What’s more anything Lil’ Wayne touches these days seems to turn to gold. As to whether I like the song myself…I can’t say it moved me much.

Ciara ‘Never Ever’ Access Granted Commercial

Peep the short commercial above for Ciara’s Access Granted for the video for her single ‘Never Ever’. CiCi looks great in the clip, which premieres in its entirety on Friday, however I just cannot get into the song. Here’s hoping the video compensates for the song ala ‘Go Girl’.

Alesha Performs ‘Breathe Slow’ Live

Former Mis-Teeq star Alesha Dixon continues to establish herself as a viable solo act with the success of current single ‘Breathe Slow’. The 30 year old performed the track, which is currently sitting at #8 on the iTunes chart – with a physical release still to come, on the BBC’s Your Country Needs You show this past Saturday. 
Great live showing IMO, which really drove home Alesha’s vocal prowess. Good stuff.

Keri Hilson – ‘Turnin’ Me On (ft. Lil’ Wayne)’ Video

Keri Hilson’s brand new video for ‘Turnin’ Me On (ft. Lil’ Wayne)’ premiered moments ago. The Erik White directed clip joins an impressive collection of vids Ms. Hilton has shot to promote her ‘In A Perfect World’ LP. I’m really hoping this one catches on, as Keri is very deserving of success IMO. Tidbit: Plies and Polow Da Don make cameos.

Randomness: Is it me or is Keri really underrated in the looks department? She looks stunning here.

John Legend Performs ‘Green Light’ On Letterman

With his third studio LP ‘Evolver’ out in stores this week, John Legend stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman last night to perform current single ‘Green Light’ (is it me or did anyone else NOT know his album was out?). As for the performance, it was pretty good; it’sreal refreshing to see John stepping out from his expected norm. More power to him.

Lil’ Wayne – ‘Mrs Officer / Comfortable’ Video

The joint video for popular Lil’ Wayne cuts ‘Mrs Officer’ and ‘Comfortable’ premiered a few hours ago. Not that I really expected anything different, but the Bobby Valentino featured vid is kinda run-of-the-mill. This, however, is unlikely to affect Wayne, as he remains one of the hottest commodities in the Hip-Hop game.

The 2008 MTV VMAs: Performances

{Content Removed As Requested}

And there you have it; the MTV Video Music Awards are over for another year. For all the hype and hysteria, this year’s show failed to deliver on many a front, offering a few genuinely worthwhile moments during an otherwise lacklustre 2 ½ hour telecast.Though it was awesome to see Britney both looking and acting like the Britney everyone knows and loves, I’m sitting here wondering what exactly the point of her segment was. Granted I seemed to be one of the few who didn’t want her to perform, if she was going to speak, it would have helped if it lasted more than 30 seconds. Damn.

Shambolic showing of the night, no doubt, belongs to Ms. Rihanna. Her rendition of ‘Disturbia’ had all the elements of a great performance (truly amazing stage set-up, overly on-point dancers etc)… that is until she opened her mouth. Billy Goat Gruff at her worst. Terrible, just terrible. Though, I must say she redeemed herself ever so slightly with her performance of ‘Live Your Life’ with T.I. (the faux-hood chick thing wasn’t working, though. No). Rihanna aside, Clifford was on fire.

Christina Aguilera’s first post-pregnancy performance was notable, not least because we were given our first look at her new musical/image direction (seems Xtina has embraced the Electro-Pop sound – jumped on the bandwagon, maybe?), more so the fact that 95% of the performance was lip-synched. She gets a pass, somewhat, as she’s already proven herself to be one this generation’s greatest vocalists. That said, I’m still not entirely sold on ‘Keeps Gettin’ Better’ or this new direction of hers. I guess time will tell.

Is it bad that I haven’t (and don’t intend to) watch The Jonas Brothers or Kid Rock performances? LOL LOL…not enough time in the day…

I feel quite proud seeing Leona getting her shine over in the States, who would have ever envisioned a Lil’Wayne / Leona performance? As for Weezy’s showing with T-Pain, it was kinda ‘samey’ IMO.

Highlights of the night, no doubt, were Pink and Kanye West. Pink’s show-stopping performance of ‘So What’ really has me liking the song even more than before. While, Kanye’s debut of ‘sing song’ new single ‘Love Lockdown’ was great…a much needed spark of energy to close out an otherwise tired show.

One will, in future, be better off expecting exactly what is on the show’s ‘can’, as opposed to any surprises, seeing as the VMA’s ability to shock and awe seems like a distant memory. Having not turned in anything of substance since 2004, it seems the classic moments that made the VMA’s such a staple fixture on the music calendar have all but disappeared – the Michael/Nsync performance, Beyonce’s infamous ceiling entrance, Britney/Madonna/Christina….need I say more?
