Ne-Yo took to ‘Good Morning America’ this morning in aid of his new LP ‘R.E.D’ today.
Delivering a set of three songs and gracing the show with an interview, fans can now catch the ‘Gentleman’ in all his stage glory below…
We’re in the era of Dance Pop. Factually speaking.
Hailed by some for the musical experimenting it encourages, it has been critiqued in earnest. Indeed, for many, the popularity of and conformity to the”generic genre” has swallowed the commercial relevancy of R&B whole.
For R&B singer Ne-Yo, it’s an issue that has plagued him in recent years; years which have seen him embrace a Pop-ier sound.
Presently on the promotional trail for new album ‘R.E.D’ (due September 18th), the singer-songwriter used a spot on Angie Martinez‘s Hot 97 radio show to address those who charge that he “abandoned” R&B.

A message from Beyonce awaits after the jump…
Get into this interesting snap- documenting Young Money star Drake showing even more love to the late singer Aaliyah.
Sharing the snap with fans online, the pic sees him being tattooed with the number ‘416’- which tributes both his area code in Toronto and the singer’s birthday, January 16th which translates into 116 numerically.

She’s back! As one of the industry’s longest reigning divas, it’s only fitting that Mariah Carey‘s return to the charts is worked like an “event”.
Hence, so as to celebrate the debut of her new single ‘Triumphant’ today, the singer’s label Island Def Jam assembled premium press for an exclusive Q&A with the songbird herself.
That Grape Juice were fortunate enough to be on the call, which saw the 42 year old dish on her forthcoming new album. Find out what she had to say below…
Soul-filled songbird Elle Varner is set to release her debut album, ‘Perfectly Imperfect’, next week (August 7th).

As fans know, former Destiny’s Child manager Matthew Knowles whipped all into a frenzy when he unleashed news that “new” music could be expected from the hitmaking trio in coming months. With implications of a reunion on the horizon, the rumor mill was spun into overdrive when Michelle Williams unveiled her interest in reuniting with bandmates Beyonce & Kelly Rowland.
And, despite the DC3 reunion records being rehash of unreleased tunes, the potential for an accompanying tour heightened hope for a redo of the diva syndicate.
As all three ready solo projects, however, Rowland isn’t so sure that fans should expect the trio together on stage so soon:
With an album due this month and interest at an all-time low, Trey Songz attempts to re-rev his buzz with a snippet of new blasphemous cut ‘Hail Mary’.
Set to feature on ‘Chapter V’ with previous singles ‘Heart Attack’, ‘Simply Amazing’, and ‘2 Reasons’, the track aims for higher chart ground than the aforementioned by enlisting rapper’s Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy.
