Rihanna, one of music history’s brightest stars, remains the pride of her island home Barbados. Now, to remind her, the Bajan island country is set to honor the Grammy-winner in a big way.

The disclaimer above, much like that found in his idol, Michael Jackson‘s, iconic ‘Thriller’ video, introduces the video for Chris Brown‘s NSFW video for ‘High End.’
Directed by Brown himself (with help from Spiff TV), the star-studded visual features cameos from Trey Songz, Teyana Taylor, Fabolous, and, of course, the song’s co-stars Future and Young Thug.

Unlike sister Tina Campbell (who recently braved a backlash for her open support of President Donald Trump), ‘Mary Mary’ star Erica Campbell is not exactly a fan of “The Donald.”
Yet, while she is not in favor of Trump and his widely reported antics, that has not impacted her coming to the defense of younger sister, Tina. Taking to her radio show, ‘Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell,’ the ‘Help’ hitmaker said:
“I appreciate my sister’s [Tina’s] boldness. This is America.” “We should be free to say what we want, and not be vilified or bashed.”

We’re back this week with yet another underrated gem. Today’s From The Vault pick is Ciara’s ‘Can’t Leave ‘Em Alone’ featuring former flame 50 Cent.
An ode to the “dope boys,” ‘Alone’ is an 80’s flavored R&B-Pop track which was released as the third single from CiCi’s sophomore set, ‘The Evolution.’
It was helmed by producer-extraordinaire Darkchild and boasted a guest verse from a still scorching Fiddy.
Sadly, the song didn’t perform as well as the album’s first two singles ‘Promise’ and ‘Like A Boy.’ Instead, it barely reached the US Top 40 – though it still went Gold. An international push did not take place.
Released just in time for Summer 2007, the colorful and sun-soaked video saw Ciara strut the streets of ATL in hyper hot pants before joining bae for a romantic dinner on a rooftop.
Of course the video also featured “those” shots of Miss Harris and 50 cuddled up and topless – which did nothing to dispel the rumors (at the time) about the pair dating.
The Fat Cats-directed vid went to #1 on BET’s 106 & Park.
We’re sure we’re not the only ones who deemed the song a winner on first listen. It’s still puzzling how it wasn’t received with open arms by critics and the record buying public, as we feel it a solid example of what a Pop/Urban Ciara sounds like at her best.
In any case, ahead of the arrival of Ci’s new material, let us know…
