the-new-edition-cast-2016-bet-thatgrapejuice-1548

Michael Bivins, Ronnie Devoe, Bobby Brown, Ralpha Tresvant, Ricky Bell, and Johnny Gill – better known as New Edition – have individually and collectively been some of R&B’s most unsung heroes.  Come January 2017, that will change.

‘The New Edition Story,’ airing on BET on January 24, 25, and 26, will come as a six-hour/three night event set to give long-awaited insight into the story of one of the genre’s most electrifying groups.  Following their journey from the streets of Boston to the stages of Hollywood and beyond, the group – best known for its hits ‘Candy Girl,’ ‘If It Isn’t Love,’ ‘Cool It Now,’ and ‘Mr. Telephone Man,’ will see their tale brought to life via portrayals by ‘Empire’ star Bryshere Y. Gray (Bivins), singer Luke James (Gill), Elijah Kelly (Bell), and many more.

James’ quest landed him front-stage centre on The Real this week, where he performed current single ‘Exit Wounds.’

As ever, he turned in a stellar vocal showing.

Watch: Jessie J Opens Up About Relationship With Singer Luke James

jessie-j-luke-james-thatgrapejuice

Two of TGJ’s favorites – Jessie J and Luke James – have started collaborating in ways that don’t exactly see them linked in the studio (at least not yet anyway).

The ‘Bang Bang’ beauty definitely hit Instagram with a bang earlier this week when she unveiled news that she and the Grammy-nominated R&B crooner were an item.  As expected, any promotional appearance made thereafter would see her bombarded with questions about her new beau.  Unlike in the past, however, the songstress now welcomes the quizzing openly.

On a recent pit stop on the UK’s ‘Loose Women,’ she spoke highly of James:

 “I met him in New York. He’s amazing. He’s a singer-songwriter. It was in the papers that he’s a rapper – he’s not a rapper, he’s a singer. He’s incredible. I’m really happy.”

Gushing in ways we’ve never seen of her before, find out what else she said about Luke in the cute interview waiting right under the jump:

Are You Buying Luke James’ Debut Album?

luke-james-album

As the age-old adage goes, sometimes the best meals take the longest to cook.

It’s a memo Luke James must be well-versed with.

Today ushers in the release of the R&B crooner’s long-awaited debut album – which he’s steadily been introducing to the masses since 2011.

The New Orleans native – who was handpicked by Beyonce to open on her ‘Mrs Carter Show’ tour – possess a voice and commitment to craft that we feel is best relay-able as “Modern Motown” – in that it’s rich, emotive, and resonating.

For us, each of these characteristics serve as the foundation of the LP which, upon release today, has been earning praise from critics the world over. And with deserving reason too – the album is stellar and, from our vantage point, could and should be in contention for Grammy’s come next year.

We have our copy, but are eager to know if you have yours yet?!

Covering a kaleidoscope of genres, ‘The Spill’ is set to feature some names you probably know and love as well as some you’ll (soon) be glad to know.  Click below to find out the spill on Estelle, Jennifer Hudson, Teyana Taylor, Luke James, and Traci Braxton
