‘Quickie’ crooner Miguel is looking to quickly appease fans who couldn’t get enough of ‘Art Dealer Chic, Vol. 1′ (featuring the fan favorite ‘Adorn’). And, while ‘Chic, Vol. 3′ is due before next month’s end (April 27th), the ‘Sure Thing’ singer is already unveiling volume 1′s follow-up.
With the assistance of producers Fisticuffs and Troy NoKa, Miguel penned each of the songs on this mini-EP. Get your first listen after the jump:
In somewhat of a surprise move, Clive Davis’ Annual Pre-Grammy Gala did indeed take place last night following the untimely death of Davis’ protégé, Whitney Houston - just hours prior.
The likes of LA Reid, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, and Diana Ross, were among those in attendance at the industry celebration; one producers insisted should go on – as it’s “what Whitney would have wanted”. A nod, it seems, to the age old Hollywood adage “the show must go on”.
Granted Whitney’s body was still at the very same venue (the Beverly Hilton Hotel), I can’t say it’s a sentiment we share.

‘Quickie’ crooner Miguel saw his quick rise to fame decorated by the success of hits ‘Sure Thing’, ‘Girls Like You’, and more. Now, much to fan delight, the R&B upstart is looking to start the next chapter of his musical journey with ‘Art Dealer Chic, Vol. 1‘ – the February 27th due mixtape set to precede his sophomore effort ‘State of the Art’.
Gifting listeners with ‘Adorn’, the first official release from ‘Chic’, get into the artsy clip after the jump:
When queens collide! Ye should prepare yourselves for royal entertainment!
Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige‘s unceremonious snubbing from the 2012 Academy Awards nominations has caused quite an uproar with fans and industry insiders alike. Never shy on a matter, Mary took to Twitter Tuesday to voice her own displeasure with the diss.
Despite making rounds for ‘The Living Proof’ – her acclaimed inclusion on ‘The Help’ soundtrack, Mary is still moving on the promo trail for her ‘My Life II’ set. Spotted on Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens Live’ last night, the New York native was quizzed on a number of topics including her album, the Oscar snub, her thoughts on young R&B (Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Chris Brown, etc), and the dueling divas – Madonna and Elton John.
Fans may recall that Madonna’s ‘Masterpiece’recently bested both Blige and John for ‘Best Original Song’ at its own 2012 ceremony. And, with Blige and John sharing mutual support and multiple duets in the past, spectators have long sought the R&B beauty’s thoughts on the longstanding Madge and Elton beef.
