Chris Brown Readies ‘Pass Out’ As Next Single

chris brown 111 Chris Brown Readies Pass Out As Next Single

During a recent playback of his comeback effort ‘Graffiti’ for MTV, Chris Brown confirmed that the Eva Simons-assisted ‘Pass Out’ will serve as the LP’s next single along with ‘Sing Like Me’.

While ‘Pass Out’ will be serviced to Pop radio and TV stations, ‘Sing Like Me’ (the album’s standout cut IMO) will receive the Urban treatment. {Source}

Major props to whoever is selecting Chris’ singles for this project, as each decision made has been logical, well-thought out and all round the best possible pick IMO. An interesting observation, as I can name countless album’s which have faltered, despite having some great material, due to crappy single choices.

In any case, check out ‘Pass Out’ below:

New Video: Mariah Carey – ‘H.A.T.E.U.’

Moments ago, Mariah Carey released the highly anticipated video for her new single ‘H.A.T.E.U.’ The clip was directed by Brett Ratner and shot in two locations: New York and Malibu. ‘H.A.T.E.U.’ has thus far peaked at #76 on the Hip-Hop/R&B charts.

Ever had the feeling that you’ve just been ‘Punk’d’? Well that’s what I’m experiencing at this very moment. Wasn’t the video filmed at two different locations? Wasn’t Mariah supposed to be wearing actual clothes in some of the shots? As much I support the ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’ adage, I sense that it is high time that MC starts showing some variation in her productions because quite frankly, I’m tired of looking at an extended series of glamour shots in every video. In fact, what does running around on the beach have to do with the song?

Hopefully, this is just one version of the clip. Nevertheless, this is going into the box at the back of my mind with the ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ video; never to be spoken of again.

Thoughts?

New Video – Mary J. Blige – ‘I Am’

Mary J. Blige‘s video for new single ‘I Am’, the lead single from her forthcoming LP ‘Stronger With Each Tear’,’ premiered within the hour. Though rather simplistic, I’m loving the visuals in the clip; Mary looks great and it’s evident money was spent on this one – even if only on the setting and the overall gloss of the vid. What’s more, the video is befitting to the song, which I’ve had on replay for the longest while and gets better with every listen.

Stronger With Each Tear’ hits stores December 21st.

New Video: 50 Cent – ‘Do You Think About Me’ (Starring Vivica Fox)

The video for rapper 50 Cent’s latest single ‘Do You Think About Me’ premiered a few minutes ago on Vevo. Though the song is kinda ‘just there’. the video – which interesting stars one-time girlfriend Vivaca Fox along with actress Tamala Jones and Tahiry – does make for quite engaging viewing. Whether it’ll do enough to revive Fiddy’s ‘Before I Self Destruct’ LP, which is in relative freefall on the charts, remains to be seen.
