Published: Saturday 25th May 2013 by Rashad

Ever keen on keeping the masses abreast of the new-new, That Grape Juice presents ‘The Spill’ – a taste of the latest offerings from some of our favorite acts.

Covering a kaleidoscope of genres, ‘The Spill’ is set to feature some names you probably know and love as well as some you’ll (soon) be glad to know.  Click below for a jam-packed spill on crooners Jennifer Hudson, Jhene Aiko, Robin Thicke, Ron Isley, Teedra Moses, Candice Glover, Bobby V., and Sean Garrett…

New Video:  Goapele – ‘Undertow’

Much to fan delight, soulful songstress Goapele returns with a visual to ‘Under Tow’ – the latest single from her 2012 release ‘Break of Dawn’.  The Bay beauty lifts the ballad’s video from the beaches of the Pacific Ocean – a move that only accents the serenity of the song itself.

See what we mean above:


New Song:  Jennifer Hudson – ‘Gone, Gone, Gone’

And I Am Telling You’ singer Jennifer Hudson has been telling fans all year how she is hard at work on her yet-titled third album.  Teasing fans with a series of snaps of herself in the studio with her production team, the product of one of those sessions is ‘Gone, Gone, Gone’.

The R&B tune is an unmistakable female empowerment anthem and shows off J. Hud’s chops in ways like never before.  If the cut will make the album, we don’t know yet.  But, we’ll enjoy it until we find out.  Press Play below and hear for yourself (thanks Singersroom):


New Video:  Ron Isley – ‘Dinner & A Movie’

As reported here, legendary Isley Brothers fronntman Ron Isley is following the success of 2010′s ‘Mr. I.’ with ‘This Song’s For You’ – his sophomore release from the eOne imprint.

The album’s lead single ‘Dinner & A Movie’ has already proven itself a winner on Stateside R&B stations.  To keep the momentum afloat, Mr. Biggs brings a stunning visual.  Get into it above:


New Song: Robin Thicke – ‘4 The Rest of My Life’

‘Blurred Lines’ beau Robin Thicke had to look no further than actress wife Paula Patton for inspiration for his latest tune ‘4 The Rest of My Life’.  The orchestra backed number iatest we’ve heard from Thicke whose latest album is due in coming months.  Its first single ‘Blurred Lines’ features T.I. and Pharrell Williams.


Watch:  Bobby V. Shows Making Of New Album ‘Peach Moon’, Showcases Its First Single ‘Back To Love’

It seems ‘Slow Down’ divo Bobby V. is taking the song’s advice for his piano-driven new single ‘Back To Love’.  The crooner shares info about the tune and its parent EP ‘Peach Moon’ – the product of his recent experimentation with live instrumentation.  See its making above:


New Song:  Jhene Aiko – ‘Comfort Inn Endings’

Def Jam beauty Jhene Aiko took to Tumblr this week to share ‘Comfort Inn Endings’ – a new No I.D.-produced track. Presumed to be on of many highly anticipated tunes aboard her ‘Souled Out’ LP scheduled to impact charts later this year, get into it below and weigh in:


New Song:  Dawn Richard – ‘Row (Safe To Shore)’

Former Danity Kane diva Dawn Richard has already made a splash with her offerings over the last year including ‘Bombs’ and more.  Now, it seems she looks to make another with ‘Row (Safe To Shore)’ produced by Knotch and Magnificent.

No word on if the tune will be listed on the singer’s forthcoming sophomore studio effort, but until we find out we’ll enjoy this futuristic number:



New Song:  Sean Garrett ft. Trey Songz & Future – ‘Twilight Zone’


‘The Pen’ Sean Garrett enlists Urban hitmakers Trey Songz and Future for ‘Twilight Zone’ – the lead single from his forthcoming mixtape ‘The Inkwell 2’.  Before you can get a full listen of what the EP will offer, ‘Zone’ awaits for your listening pleasure awaits below:

It has been a non-stop go for Candice Glover after being crowned ‘American Idol’s season 12 winner.  Her album ‘Music Speaks’, set for a July 16th release, has been preceded by the soaring lead single ‘I Am Beautiful’.

While faithful Candice fans await the tune’s accompanying visual, they did not have to wait long for a slew of promotional appearances the budding diva made this week – all featuring live performances of the cut.  See the best of them below (courtesy of our buds over at IABG):

    J. Hud’s song sounds like a 2001 adult contemporary reject. She’s only 31 years old. Why do they give her 50 year old fashions & music? I just don’t understand.

    Candice Glover can sing, but what is her target market. Hopefully she’ll find her niche in the upcoming market.

    Jhene’s song is HOT! I love her music!

    I honestly didn’t bother listening to the rest, sorry.

  5. Super Cisus May 26, 2013

    None of this s*** will chart anywhere

  6. ratedxxx(tic toc) May 26, 2013

    I f**** with ron isley….everybody else gets a big side eye from me…

    especially jennifer hudson…ive always said this about her..her voice is not made for pop or R&b music..her voice needs to stay at the church choir …

    everybody else boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boooooooooooooooo….

    is candace that chick that won AI? meh

  7. chis May 26, 2013

    Please go back to the lab with that ish Jhud.

  8. Casual May 26, 2013

    The best track is the Robin Thicke track. Jennifer Hudson is giving Betty Wright from the 70’s – old school but not in a good way. The rest are just so-so.

  9. MelyB May 26, 2013

    Luv luv luv the Goapele, JHud, Jhene & Robin Thicke tracks! Thanks for giving Goapele & Jhene some shine – both are so underrated. I can’t wait to hear Candice Glover’s music – I hope that truly talented writers & producers get together to create a spectacular debut for her…and I hope that those who let skin color drive their music purchases, give her a chance and don’t write her off as a “basic r&b chick”.

    • MelyB May 26, 2013

      *forgot to mention Teedra Moses – she is another incredible yet underrated artist. I cannot wait to get her new album.

  10. Sisqo’s new album is coming!! “Last Dragon” 2013 May 26, 2013

    Goapele,Jhene Aiko, Robin Thicke, Dawn Richard songs are like wow.
