The unstoppable machine that is Usher’s promotional campaign continued to move forward last evening when the star appeared on ‘George Lopez Tonight’. The singer performed ‘Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)’, the 1st single from his recently released ‘Raymond vs Raymond’ LP. ‘Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)’ has thus far peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. Check out both Usher’s performance of the song as well as his interview with Lopez below:
The official tracklisting for Toni Braxton‘s latest LP ‘Pulse’ has surfaced. Consisting of 11 tracks, the list below is said to be for the record’s UK incarnation, and will be altered slightly for the US release:
2. Make My Heart
3. Hands Tied
5. If I Have To Wait
6. Lookin’ At Me
9. No Way
11. Why Won’t You Love Me
Granted the absence of tracks such as ‘My Ring Too Heavy’ is a little confusing, I’m still thoroughly looking forward to what Braxton will be serving up with this project. For after a few career duds (see: ‘More Than A Woman’ LP), she appears to be back at her creative best (both ‘Hands Tied’ and ‘Make My Heart’ have been on replay for sometime now).
‘Pulse’ hits stores May 4th.
The video for Janet Jackson’s ‘Nothing’ – the lead single from the ‘Why Did I Get Married Too’ soundtrack premièred a few moments ago. Check out the Tim Palen directed clip above…
As much as we support Ms. Jackson, if this wasn’t a recession-special I’m really not sure what is. Terrible. I mean I wouldn’t be surprised if her outfit costs more than the production budget. Sad, as the song is actually one of her best offerings in some time – yet the video definitely takes away from it. She only just gets a pass because a) it’s a soundtrack single and b) she’s never served up anything as atrocious as this for her own projects – and hopefully never will. Awful.
‘Why Did I Get Married Too’ hits theatres in the US today!
Ecclectic singer Kelis is gearing up for the release of her new LP ‘Flesh Tones’ (due in UK May 12th / US – June 22nd).

Check out the tracklist below, as well the link to download the free compilation after the jump….
Janet Jackson sat down with MTV News during the promotional rounds for her new film, ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’. Accompanied by her co-star, Tyler Perry, the diva revealed that she worries for Lady GaGa’s health given her rigorous work schedule. Check out what Jackson had to say below:
With his new promotional campaign in full swing, Usher has made yet another high profile appearance. The R&B superstar performed his new international single, ‘OMG’, for his fans at CityWalk in Orlando, Florida at the Ellen Degeneres-hosted event. The song has thus far peaked at #13 on the UK Singles Chart. Check out the performance below:
Jennifer Hudson has been out of the public eye for a quite some time. However, the powerhouse singer made a rare appearance on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ today to reveal her shockingly slimmer figure. Hudson used the opportunity to speak about how she was inspired by her new son to lose the weight and her upcoming role as Winnie Mandela. Check out the interview below:
Mary J. Blige released the music video for her new song ‘Each Tear (Ft. Jay Sean)’ today. The clip was directed by Marcus Raboy to support the track which serves as the 2nd single to be released in the UK. ‘Each Tear’ will not be sent to US radio. Rather, ‘We Got Hood Love (Ft. Trey Songz)’ has been sent to Urban formats instead. Check out the video below:
Nicki Minaj stopped by BET’s ’106 & Park’ to debut her new video for ‘Massive Attack (Ft. Sean Garrett)’ last evening. Minaj was greeted by an excited audience and met one of her idols, Janet Jackson, backstage. Check out the footage below (as well as the crazy fan at the 0:30 mark):
R&B star Keri Hilson had quite the embarrassing episode last night at the LA Lakers vs Atlanta Hawks game. While performing the US National Anthem (‘The Star Spangled Banner’), Hilson blanked out, forgetting the words to the iconic song in front of the thousands in attendance.
Kudos to her for continuing on (like a professional), however I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t just a teeny-weeny bit hilarious. After all, it just had to be Keri Hilson, didn’t it?! (I’m pretty sure the usual stans will tear her a new one LOL). Check it out after the jump…
