Jamie Foxx has revealed that the performer was considered for the lead role in a proposed ‘A Star is Born‘ remake.
His surprising story below…
If the last two weeks have cemented anything it’s that Lady Gaga is officially a star reborn.
The Pop maverick’s talent has never been in question, however her commercial viability in recent times has.
Indeed, while her artistic versatility has earned her critical acclaim during her various sound-shifts, some feel it placed her on the parameters of the charting climate rather than in the thick of it. Especially following her Jazz jaunt with Tony Bennett and stripped-back polarizer ‘Joanne’ in 2016.
However, with ‘A Star Is Born’ and its companion soundtrack, Mother Monster has delivered an emphatic answer that dispels any doubt of her Pop potency.
As reported, the set opened at #1 on the Billboard 200. And now its lead single ‘Shallow’ has shot into the upper echelon of the singles tally.
Tina Turner has revealed that she almost didn’t record her first solo #1 single ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ because she disliked its original demo version.
‘Love’ was handed to Tina as she mapped out her career comeback following her departure from the monstrous Ike Turner and almost was almost cast off as a reject before she hit the studio to record it.
Her fascinating admission below…
Rooted in the social, the political, and the racial, the set was showered with praise from critics and the culture alike and is largely hailed as a musical mirror of black pride. It also earned the 32-year-old her first Grammy Award (Best R&B Performance for ‘Cranes In The Sky’).
Now, the eclectic songbird has revealed that she’ll be hatching its follow-up this Fall.
Nicki Minaj is set to etch her name in history books yet again if new reports are to be believed.
On the verge of extending her history-making mark on singles charts by garnering her 100th Hot 100 entry with Little Mix‘s ‘Woman Like Me’ (click here to listen), news has it the rapstress is now being greeted with news her fourth studio effort – ‘Queen’ – is now officially eligible for platinum certification.
Sharing snaps from the ceremony moments ago, Bey was all smiles with the likes of Kelly Rowland, Usher, and husband Jay-Z.
As reported, Queen Bey performed in honor of Warner/Chappell exec Jon Platt who was presented with the Spirit Of Life award.
Peep more from the festivities after the jump…
Today’s From The Vault pick comes courtesy of one of the most gifted entertainers of our generation – Chris Brown.
The T-Pain assisted ‘Kiss Kiss is this week’s selection.
With the preceding single ‘Wall To Wall’ not achieving success, Team Breezy decided to pull out the big gun and turned to then-chart titan T-Pain to cook up a hook-heavy R&B smash.
‘Kiss’ – produced by its guest feature – became the launching single from Brown’s sophomore set ‘Exclusive’ and fared sweetly on the charts, earning the top spot of the US Billboard Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks. Elsewhere, it peaked at #6 in Canada and #8 in Australia.
Erik White directed the song’s visual. Set in college, it puts a energised spin on the classic Jock vs Nerd narrative with Chris playing the two roles.
The clip was nominated for Best Choreography at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, where Chris performed the track in a joint performance with then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Say what folk will about C. Breezy, but there’s no denying that he possess a tremendous talent; one we feel isn’t always used the way it should.
We weren’t particularly moved by the mix and match that was his latest album ‘Heartbreak On A Fullmoon,’ so until Breezy can focus on blessing the world with a cohesive, filler-free LP accompanied by a more organized promo run, we’ll keep going back to the good ole days.
