“Me and O have been trying to put this together for so many years, and now we’ve got the opportunity to do it. We’re in the creative process right now, still trying to come up with a title and everything. Me and him are coming up with ideas daily, so the process is gonna go real smooth. We’re anxious to get in the studio together and make this whole thing happen.”
“I’m not even calling it an album; It’s gonna be a special event. It’s gonna be crazy, something the people have been waiting on — the girls have been waiting on –for years.”
…Ok then. I’m guessing the real reason for this ‘special event’ is that neither Bow Wow or Omarion can manage to actually sell well with their individual albums. This seems like a disaster waiting to happen. The way I see it, Omarion should to try make an album that lives up to the hype of his singles and Bow Wow should attempt to make a hit without a feature artist.
Brandy – Just Like Tommy
With all that is going on with Brandy, I wasn’t expecting any new material from her for a while. Nonetheless, Just Like Tommy is a great track…not album material but still good. It has a neo-soul vibe to it, something she hasn’t done in the past.
Omarion – Icebox (ft. Usher)
This remix of Icebox premiered on Hot 97 a few days ago and features none other than Usher. I was kinda surprised by the Usher feature as many see Omarion as one of many Usher imitators. Like the original, this version is HOT.
Paris Bennet – I Will
Former American Idol contestant Paris Bennet is to release her debut album ‘Princess P’ in April and this track will be featured on the set. The inspirational song includes a mass choir and Paris really delivers on the vocals.
Jennifer Hudson – And I Am Telling You (ONLY Live Performance) (AUDIO)
I know I posted the link to the video a last week, but here is the audio of this one-off live performance of the track. Jennifer nailed it.
