The Spill: Shanell, Romeo Santos & Nicki Minaj, Ledisi, Estelle, Raheem Devaughn

Published: Saturday 22nd Feb 2014 by Rashad

Ever keen on keeping the masses abreast of fresh and/or often underrated talent, That Grape Juice presents ‘The Spill’ – a renewed look at not-so-new, yet active, acts.

Much like its ‘Freshly Squeezed’ sister segment, this revived assay aims to put the magnifying glass on talents who may not appeal to the buying public on a broad scale yet are still serving material that could easily spin side-by-side with some of today’s top hits.

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 to find out the spill on Shanell, Romeo Santos & Nicki Minaj, Ledisi, Estelle, and Raheem Devaughn


New Song:  Romeo Santos & Nicki Minaj – ‘Animals’

Romeo Santos‘Formula Vol 2’ will be released in the U.S. this Tuesday (Feb. 25). As such, the crooner looks to build buzz for the project via its wealth of collabos including appearances from appearances from Drake, Kevin Hart, Marc Anthony, Carlos Santana, and Nicki Minaj.

Look above to hear Nicki chime in like only she can on his new number ‘Animales’.



Speaking of Young Money, YMCMB’s resident R&B songstress Shanell tapped rap heavyweight Yo Gotti team up for the remix of sexy underground hit “Catch Me at the Light.”

Fans looking for the number can find it on “Young Money: Rise of an Empire” compilation album.


Raheem Devaughn joins producer Kenny Dope and Grammy winning artist Rhymefest for a call to social consciousness with ‘Final Call’. Shedding light on a number of the past year’s most talked about social events (i.e. George Zimmerman and Michael Dunn trials, etc.), the trio of talented artists weave together a compelling narrative to increase the peace.

See the video in its entirety above.




Estelle‘s “Love & Happiness” EP has been greeted with quite the buzz given its sexual subject matter. As fans await news on the singer’s newest full length studio album, they’re invited to download her latest EP.  Get it here:

    Ugh I’ll be in school when Ledisi goes on tour. It will damn near be final exams. I’m so sad now. I love her vocals.

    Anyway, I’m all for Romeo, Ledisi, and Estelle. As I said in the Mya comeback post, I route for the underdog. Talent is talent.

  3. IStanForYourFav February 22, 2014

    P.S. I forgot to write I love Raheem. He’s very talented.

    Am I the only one that remember watching all of those R&B dudes “back in the day”? Everyone makes all of this dance music, but they have absolutely no rhythm (except Breezy). I was a little girl watching all those dance breaks by Usher, Ginuwine (still in love to this day), Dru Hill, and so many more. I used to go crazy lol. Good times with R&B men. I lost my imaginary virginity to Usher. lmao

    Enjoy your night people.

  4. RDK February 22, 2014

    I like that song with Romeo-santos and Nicki minaj.

  5. Rosie February 22, 2014

    I see why the Mooriah stan is mad.
    10. Beyoncé – Drunk In Love (feat. Jay Z)
    1269. Mariah Carey – You’re Mine (Eternal)

  6. anonymous February 22, 2014

    I’ve always been a fan of Ledisi and Estelle. They’re very talented and I love their music. I like Ledisi’s new song I blame You. That song deserves more attention.

  7. kim kardashian stan February 22, 2014

    Rosie stop clinging to beyonce for once. Cling to the drunkie you stan for .

  8. Rosie February 22, 2014

    And what is K** Kardashian doing other than clinging to Kanye and every other black d*** for credibility? Even with all that publicity and f****** no one in any industry wants to claim it. Will it have any impact outside of Sears?

  9. kim kardashian stan February 22, 2014

    Kims net worth – 40 million
    Lana del drunkie – 8 million

    Stay pressed Kim is way more relevant then Lana stay mad.

  10. Rosie February 23, 2014

    B**** has been out for like a decade and is still worth less than Icki? And with 39320x more brands/endorsements? Mess.
    If K** never f***** Kanye she would be a nobody by now. No one stans for her anymore except for gay twinks. The GP has already moved on to Kylie and Kendall. Death at Kendall getting a Vogue spread before it.

  11. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    B**** hasnt lana aka lizzy flop been trying to break into the industry for over 7 years and finally released her first boring album in 2012 that took two years to scan platinum kiiii pathetic she will always be gagas shadow, btw Kendall is fab i love her shes everything just like her big sis dont be mad cause even rob kardashians fat ass is more relevant that lana kii.

  12. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014


  13. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Death at you bringing up an indie album released on a small label with no promo? If Whale Kardashian’s fatass never made a s**-tape with the dude from that one VH1 dating show she would be a nobody. And even with all her attempts to break away from the s** tape and become a legitimate star NO ONE in Hollywood and in the GP under the age of 15 takes her seriously except for Tyler Perry.
    That itself is more embarassing than anything Lana has or ever will do. Stay mad.

  14. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Death at you calling Kim fat when her and Bleachyonce have the same body type kiiiiii, Tramp your mad cause Queen Kim is engaged to one of the biggest rappers on earth Kim will forever be more iconic and relevant then fish lip b**** you stan for who cant even sing. You know what lemme go purchase pure heroine off itunes you know the album that wont struggle 2 years to go platinum.

  15. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Too bad you stan for a fake w**** who has touched more black men than an NBA basketball. Yeah go ahead and buy Pure Localness, it still won’t outsell Born To Die worldwide. Local and basic just like K** who is a nobody outside of the US.

  16. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Lana isnt even no one in her own country lmao.. lmao lorde already ended that trannys career.

  17. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Still top 40 on the albums chart after two years and sold 5 million worldwide.
    Borde’s album is already off the charts outside of North America/Oceania and still hasn’t sold 2 million worldwide with all that payola and bought awards. Not to mention Team flopped outside of the US/New Zealand. Kii. Let’s see where it is after Tennis Court flops.

  18. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    If kim released an album im sure it would sell more in the US than born to botox

  19. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Just like how “Jam” was supposed to be a huge smash, right?

  20. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Um that snooze fest album did not sell 5 million stop inflating booboo. And lana has only had two hits one that didnt even make top 10 Lorde has two top 10s plus a number 1 single hahaha and grammys.

  21. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Jam was just a test and the gays went off for that song.

  22. Rosie February 23, 2014

    LMAO I’m not inflating. Interscope isn’t even that far off from Mediatraffic, who only counts around 10 countries.
    All of Borde’s receipts are from the US and Oceania, honey. Too bad it will barely match half of BTD’s sales worldwide. The next local manufactured, local “indie” fad, just like fun.

  23. eric February 23, 2014

    Thanks for highlighting the Raheem video/song; something meaningful.

  24. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Lol rosie please, your so insecure when it comes to Lorde its clear as day baby girl mad cause shes 17 and slaying like Lana could never.

  25. Rosie February 23, 2014

    LMAO if you really think I’m pressed over some local wannabe Tumblr b****.
    She’ll be over by summer/fall. Republic’s payola can only work for so long.

  26. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    lol rosie be a real b**** and just admit you wish Lana had Lordes success . btw Team shits on any lana song tbh Lorde will have a long career.

  27. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Yeah and bandwagoning for Borde just to drag Lana doesn’t change the fact that Kim has been the biggest joke in pop culture for the past decade and will contribute to be until she drops dead.
    By the way, once again Team flopped outside of the US/New Zealand.

  28. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    I dont care about charts outside of the US biitch, Team is a hit here in America which is all that matters broke b**** actually the biggest joke would be Lanas lips sweet heart there as big as camel z now lmao not cute at all.

  29. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Tell me why Khloe kardashian is worth more then Lana tho

  30. Rosie February 23, 2014

    I know you don’t care, obviously since you stan for local b****** like Kim. It must be causing pain to know that the black man c** dumpster and the basic Tumblr try hard b**** you bandwagon for are both nobodies outside of like, 4 countries.
    The truth hurts, I know.

  31. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Team only went top 10 in 7 countries.
    A bit underwhelming with all of that hype and payola and paid awards.

  32. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    But there both are relevant in the country that actually matters hun it doesnt hurt me must hurt you to kno lana not even excepted in her own country now thats SAD booboo and nothing wrong with big black d*** you should try some.

  33. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Why when an artist is successful haters like you have to say they are using payola?

  34. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Not you talking about paid awards when you bandwagon for beyonce.

  35. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Death b**** America isn’t the only country that matters. Typical local b**** stan excuse. It isn’t even the #1 music market.
    And yes, it’s so obvious Borde uses payola. Just last week Team was randomly gaining massive spins on alternative radio so it could go #1 for a day or two. But by then, her spins plummeted and the Arctic Monkeys went back to #1, where they were for the past few weeks. And they continued to cockblock her on the Billboard Alternative charts. Real music and talent always wins over payola in the end.
    At least Beyonce proved her place in the industry and had years under her belt before she won most of her awards.

  36. AALIYAH STAN FOR LIFE February 23, 2014

    I strongly feel this Aaliyah album needs to be celebrated more. In July it’ll mark the 14th anniversary of the “Aaliyah” album!
    Classic music that revolutionized R&B and the singles and videos were just outta here! Every single would still perfectly fit well in to todays music because of how futuristic all the song sound like. Long Live Queen Aaliyah! R.I.P!

  37. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Lmao arent you from south africa anyways? lol everyone wants to make it big in the US i know your mad because your in africa whos about 20 years behind the US its not my problem you wanna be a US girl so bad so you try and down play our charts

  38. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Sweetie beyonce cheated and stole her way to the top but im sure you already knew this.

  39. Rosie February 23, 2014

    You’re confusing me with that Fake Like T***** Gaga f**.
    I’m from Canada. But you can attempt to drag, I guess.

  40. Rosie February 23, 2014

    LMAO I don’t wanna be a part of your s***** ass country. Canada is much better. I see why the US was seething yesterday when we whooped your ass yesterday in Sochi.

  41. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Lol Canada? girl bye i knew you were a basic b****.

  42. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Girl please im sure Canada is more dryer then your pusssy. thats why your stars leave Canada for America hahaha.

  43. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Higher living standard than the US and more free.
    You can stay in your ghetto Atlanta slum with your drive-bys and ghetto music, though.

  44. Rosie February 23, 2014

    That’s also why most of our celebs are more popular and sell more than your basic American ones. Kii.

  45. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Once again a dumbass American showing their lack of knowledge about international affairs. No wonder their education system is a mess and barely top 40 worldwide.

  46. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    I dont live in Faglanta sweet heart i stay in Simi valley CA a very wonderful city with a low crime rate big houses wonderful shopping centers etc im sure you live in a one bedroom apartment with your mom and her other 3 children.

  47. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Keep seething canadian bum, everyone wants to be like us American girls.

  48. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Whatever. I bet you just googled some random city near LA.
    I attend the University Of Toronto, one of the highest ranked universities worldwide. You can cling to those community college credits for dear life, though, looking at your lack of basic grammar skills.

  49. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    Sis if that was the case i would have just said LA or West hollywood smh. i could careless about your made up life tho

  50. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    “That’s also why most of our celebs are more popular and sell more than your basic American ones. Kii.”

    Yet you cling to American ones like Beyonce and Lana kiiiiiiii.

  51. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    But tbh rosie we should both be glad we dont live in africa lol

  52. Rosie February 23, 2014

    And you bandwagoning Borde for a few hours still won’t change Kim’s t-cell count.

  53. kim kardashian stan February 23, 2014

    You clinging to lana and bey still wont make you an american you wanna be ass B****.

  54. Touché February 23, 2014


    Yaaaaaaas! Now that’s what I’m talking about.

  55. John dee February 23, 2014


  56. Career Ender February 23, 2014

    Rosie dragged the pornstar fan !

    Lana Del Rey >> Borede (5 milli peoples dont lie)

  57. QUEEN MINAJ♥ February 23, 2014

    @Rosie is just a pressed b****. Any way I am loving Nicki´s verse 🙂

  58. QUEEN MINAJ♥ February 23, 2014

    Nicki and Kim kardashian are worth than lana del flop

  59. Rosie February 23, 2014

    Death, are you all still trying to use inaccurate ass net worth sites to drag? That Celebrity Net Worth site had Lana at 500K for like 2 years before changing it to 8 million a few weeks ago. The very next link when you google “lana del rey net worth” has it at $12 million.
