Exclusive: Brandy Talks New Album / Says “I’m Singing These Songs Like They’re My Last”

Diva Also Dishes On 'The Game' & Upcoming TV Projects

*Pinned: Posts Resume Below As Normal*

With many hailing Brandy as the definitive Vocal Bible, it’s only natural that a bellowing buzz has greeted the news that she’s working on her seventh studio album.

The singer/actress has made no secret of the fact that her life has “changed” of late, with the emotions she experienced following said occurrence set to serve as the foundation of the new LP.

As such, when we caught up with the star at the Hollywood Confidential event in Los Angeles recently, we had to ask about the project and, of course, her other upcoming plans – including her return to ‘The Game’ on BET.

Check out our EXCLUSIVE interview with Brandy above and be sure to let us know what you think below…

Incensed, the ‘Think Like A Man Too’ staple released a joint statement with husband Dwyane Wade confirming the authenticity of the pics, her disappointment, and her intended actions.

Drake Co-Writer Suggests Beyonce & Nicki Minaj Use Ghostwriters To Pen Hit Songs

drake that grape juice she is diva that grape juice 1 Drake Co Writer Suggests Beyonce & Nicki Minaj Use Ghostwriters To Pen Hit Songs

They may earn millions from lucrative publishing arrangements every quarter, but Drake, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj have seen their credentials as songwriters thrown into disrepute by Shi Wisdom, the writer behind Rita Ora‘s hit single ‘R.I.P.’

Faced with claims that she wasn’t paid for time she spent serving as Drake‘s “ghostwriter“, the wordsmith used ‘Noisey‘ to share her side of the story, lifting the veil on a machine more dependant on shadow writers than the acts they’re employed by would care to admit.

Why Minaj‘s alleged  jab at Iggy Azalea‘s lyrical skill may have been a tad hypocritical if Shi is right?

Her claims below…

Watch: Traci Braxton Serves Up Unfortunate Performance In Washington DC

traci braxton that grape juice 2014 600x374 Watch: Traci Braxton Serves Up Unfortunate Performance In Washington DC

Traci Braxton may have risen to become one of Reality TV’s more endearing characters, but it would appear she has a long way to go before being just as celebrated as musician.

Why? Hours ago saw Ms. Braxton (whose sister is ‘Spanish Guitar‘ chanteuse Toni Braxton) take to the Howard University Cramton Auditorium to perform for a crowd she no doubt hoped would support her forthcoming solo project.

Unfortunately, what this crowd received was nothing more than an amateur night at the Apollo sized mess.

A sorry scene below…

Cover Star: Alvester Martin’s Moving ‘Make It To Me’ Cover (Sam Smith)

Alvester Martin is a name you should get used to hearing.

The R&B crooner may have seen his ever-talented dancing shoes slide right next to the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Tamar Braxton, and more over the course of his career, but now his feet are guiding him center stage.

In a recent cover Martin’s soulful voice can be heard blessing fellow crooner Sam Smith‘s ‘Make It To Me.’ Adding in an ever-timely twist of Janet Jackson‘s ‘Come Back To Me’ (as this week marks the 25th anniversary of the release of its parent album ‘Rhythm Nation 1814′), press play below and tell us if he does the cuts justice:

Showcasing a sincerity oft lost in the everyday cover, Martin’s delivery of ‘Make It To Me’ made us believe every word he said.

Never succumbing to the urge to “overdo it” with embellishments, the simplicity of Alvester’s arrangement complimented that of the original singers’ without sounding as if he was trying to imitate.

We go for “sangers” who recognize singing is not just a showcase of the instrument, but also how it’s handled and manipulated.  Bravo Alvester for making this a “must hear”!

For more on Alvester, check out his Soundcloud page here.

The R&B icon that is Usher most certainly brought the heat to last night’s ‘iHeart Radio Music Festival’, sizzling on stage in ways that have to be seen to be believed.

Indeed, after delivering a number of forgettable performances in the last year, Raymond ensured his would be the name hot on everyone’s lips today with a show we hope teased what fans can expect from his forthcoming ‘The UR Experience’ tour.

How he did it?

Good music, Chris Brown and “hot shoes” below…
