Lady Gaga Loses Singles Streak, Ties Mariah Carey’s Top 10 Record

‘Reductive’ diva Lady Gaga may resent the remarks of a once-praised Pop idol who branded her as such, but it may be safer to say she resents another, more pressing reduction – of presence on Billboard.  Despite boasting 4 out of its 5 singles as top ten hits, the singer’s official sophomore effort ‘Born This Way’ may have seen its releases find their way to Billboard’s upper rankings, but their tenure there was very short lived.

Tack on the singer’s most recent single ‘Marry The Night’ not living up to hype, those quick to write the songstress off believe that Gaga has gone a bit beyond the ‘edge’ of her glory.  ‘Night’ may have landed the diva her latest #1 dance hit, but it missed the mark on another tally…

When not imparting poses for Armani promo, the Grammy winning vocal less vocalist is said to be readying the title track of her critically ashamed album ‘Talk That Talk’ (featuring mentor Jay Z) as its third single.   While the latter of whom just made history for enlisting the help of a (much more welcomed) musical whine – newborn Blue Ivy – you can catch the former in these sizzling shots for Armani below (thanks in part to RihannaDaily):

The Best You Never Heard: The Aaliyah Edition

Today marks what would’ve been the 33rd birthday of R&B diva Aaliyah.  Ten years may have passed since her untimely 2001 passing, yet the fallen angel is still regularly commented on in contemporary conversations and debates in popular music.  Such only echoes the ever-present regard of her influence and style.

With just three studio albums, her nearly decade long career spanned more recognizable records than many could boast in twice the time.  Even in such, there are often overlooked or unheard numbers that don’t receive the praises of “One In A Million”, ‘Back and Forth’, ‘The One I Gave My Heart To’, and more.

Thusly, we at TGJ HQ saw it only fitting to gift this ‘Best You Never Heard’ to fans and spectators in honor of the star that is Aaliyah.
