Toni Braxton’s ‘Pulse’ Pushed Back – Again

toni3 Toni Braxtons Pulse Pushed Back   Again

Toni Braxton‘s serially delayed LP ‘Pulse’ has been pushed back yet again. According to Amazon, the record, which was originally slated to hit stores  earlier last year, will now be released (provided it doesn’t get delayed again) on May 4th. The album will serve as Toni’s first release on new label Atlantic Records.

It’s quite sad to see Toni’s project being dealt blow after blow like this. While the reason for the delay is unknown, one thing that is a near certainty is that should she not drop a hit prior to the album’s release, it’ll likely be curtains for the whole album. After all, we’ve seen it time and time again; albums getting pushed back so much that when they do finally hit stores no one cares. Here’s hoping things work out for Ms. Braxton.

Randomness: I’d be lying if I said I was actually feeling much of the material I’ve heard from ‘Pulse’ thus far; however the brilliance that was her last album ‘Libra’ has me optimistic that she can still serve up the hotness.

Rihanna Set To Perform At Grammy Awards

article 0 07b00efb000005dc 216 468x715 Rihanna Set To Perform At Grammy Awards

In keeping with the trend of featuring music’s most talented artists, Rihanna has been added the Grammy Awards lineup. The world renowned vocalist joins Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Celine Dion, Usher and Jennifer Hudson among others. The Grammy Awards ceremony airs on Sunday, January 31st. {Source}

This is great news! I woke up this morning and thought to myself that the Grammy ceremony was lacking some serious talent this year. None of the listed performers have Rihanna’s vocal skill or her ability to entertain the millions who will be watching. So imagine my relief when I heard that the true diva Rihanna was going to demonstrate her amazing voice on the Grammy stage. We all know that everybody in the industry wishes that they had her dial tone vocal range. I’m so excited to watch her perform! *insert sarcasm here*

Omarion Joins ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’

omarion11 Omarion Joins Americas Best Dance Crew

While his new album ‘Ollusion’ failed to make waves on the charts, Omarion has found himself a new job. In an official press release issued by MTV today, the singer has been highlighted as the new judge on ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’. Omarion will replace Shane Sparks on the judging panel after the latter faces allegations of child molestation. The 5th season of the hit show premieres on Thursday, January 28th at 10pm ET. Here is an excerpt from the release:

“Omarion is one of the most accomplished, multi-talented young stars of his generation.  His music and music videos have influenced hip-hop dance going back to his B2k days and in more recent years as a platinum-selling solo artist,” said Liz Gateley, Senior Vice President of Series Development for MTV.  He is an accomplished dancer, artist and actor who knows what makes a good dance crew performance.  We are very excited for him to join Lil Mama and JC Chasez as our third judge.”

“Omarion is a great friend and I am looking forward to him joining the ABDC family,” said Randy Jackson, executive producer of “America’s Best Dance Crew.”  “Season Five is going to be blazing hot.”

“I’m so excited to be a judge on MTV’s ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’,” says Omarion. “Dancing and performing  is what I do and being a judge on this show will allow me to give creative feedback to the newest and hottest dancers on the rise.”

I sense that this is a good move for Omarion. Although he is not the ‘King of Dance’, as he has led himself to believe, he can definitely share his experiences in the business with the next generation. Hopefully the learning goes both ways and he picks up some new tricks from the watching them perform. That way he won’t have to resort to doing the ‘robot’ every single time he goes on stage.

Celebrities Line Up For Haiti Benefit Concert

ak giant4 Celebrities Line Up For Haiti Benefit Concert

An extensive list of celebrities are scheduled to lend their support to Haiti during a benefit concert this Friday. The ‘Hope for Haiti Now’ event will air commercial-free on over 12 networks including NBC, ABC, MTV and Vh1, starting at 8pm ET. Carded to make appearances are Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson, Rihanna, Shakira and host Wyclef Jean, just to name a few. {Source}

This is shaping up to be an event on the level of ‘Live Aid’. It’s great to see so many big acts doing their part to help Haiti in the best way they can. However, there is one person who many people have been calling to hit the stage at the event, and that’s Lauryn Hill. Certainly, it would be amazing to see her make a rare appearance to benefit the cause and sing in that way that only she can. After watching Rihanna squeal through ‘Redemption Song’ yesterday, it became only more evident how much Hill’s voiced has been missed over the years.
