This news comes on the heels of Jay’s standing down as President of Def Jam last December, following the breakdown of negotiations for a more lucrative deal. Jay’s final Def Jam release is slated to drop before the end of the year.

The video for Chris Brown’s latest single ‘Take You Down’ premiered on BET just a few short hours ago. While it’s footage from his ‘Up Close & Personal’ tour, I’m still pleased it’s getting a release in some capacity. IMO ‘Take You Down’ is one of, if not the, best track I’ve heard from Chris. About the video, Chris really is morphing into a very seasoned performer.

* In regard to the Trina interview, it will be posted in audio form tomorrow (with written at a later date). Much of the delay has been due to the fact that it’s so long (45 minutes to be exact). Saying that, it’s definitely one that both fans and non-fans can not miss!
* On a final(ish) note, I’d just like to say a big Thank You to you all for supporting That Grape Juice! At the start of the year, I stated that 08 would definitely mean ‘onwards and upwards’ for the site – something I’m firmly committed to making manifest. Therefore, do be sure to keep it locked on That Grape Juice as there are a lot of great things to come

Visually, while the vid looks great, I can’t help but notice the obvious similarities between this and the vid for his 2004 hit ‘Yeah’. Not sure what I’m thinking of that. Still, the choreography – which was choreographed by Jamaica – looks on-point. The video in its entirety will debut next Monday (April 7th).
