The Spill: Jennifer Hudson, Luke James, Meelah & Musiq SoulChild, Teyana Taylor, & Traci Braxton

Published: Saturday 13th Sep 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 Estelle, Jennifer Hudson, Teyana Taylor, Luke James, and Traci Braxton

Fans of Luke James have been eating up all of the new music he’s been dropping in preparation for the release of his self-titled debut album.  But, if ‘Dancing in the Dark’ and ‘Options’ weren’t enough, enter ‘Exit Wounds’ – his latest single.

Keeping it real in ways we’ve yet seen of the young crooner, the piano-laced ballad is decorated with ‘F-bombs’ and heartbreak galore.  Produced by Danjathe tune shines as the third release lifted from James’ long-awaited, self-titled debut album (September 23rd).

Behind the Scenes: Jennifer Hudson Hits the Studio With Pharrell Williams

Speaking of September 23rd, another TGJ favorite is preparing a release for the same day – Jennifer Hudson.

Readying the release of her third studio album ‘JHUD,’ the Grammy winning diva’s highly anticipated project will be launched on the wings of singles ‘Walk It Out,’ ‘Dangerous,’ and the R.Kelly-assisted ‘It’s Your World.’  Enlisting a superteam of producers including Timbaland, R. Kelly, and Pharrell, the diva looks to see her name atop charts once more with her first project in 3 years.

    Looking forward to Teyana Taylor’s new material.

    • HALF AMAZIN September 14, 2014

      I’m also curious about Teyana’s music. She seems like an attention whoring thot tho.

      JHud still trying? That’s cute.

      Like James I don’t care about at all.

      Traci Braxton’s Last Call is an auto-tune mess but I like her.

      Estelle is cool but I don’t see another hit for her in the USA unless she makes something corny.

      Meelah girl, this song isn’t for you and neither is that blonde wig but I will check your other songs out

      I need Musiq Soulchild to release another album to redeem himself from that awful reggae inspired album that he made with Syleena Johnson.

      That is all!

    Ok I just listen to the snippets of Tracis album and it actually sounds like a great body of work.
    I actually kinda excited, but she needs to go ok “The Real” and other talk shows to promote it so it can have decent first week sales lol. Side note the over auto-tune killed “Last Call” but other than that the album seems fantastic (based on the snippets)

  3. Metzo September 13, 2014

    OTR tour in Paris was insane! Jay and Bey werre soo freaking adorable. They could just not keep their eyes off of each other. I love their complicity.

      Wtf does that have to do with any of these artists? That’s why people hate beyonce stans now.

  4. Mingxxx September 14, 2014

    These artist does deserve more media. artists like copycat music infringement fraud beyonce gets much free media with all the rumors and lies her camp puts out to her stupid fans to gain sales mathew knowles said himself yet her 5th flop cant sell even 2.1 million US copies and is being outsold by Eminem right now so other artists does deserve a mention on urban blogs

  5. Julien September 14, 2014

    I would want more confirmation before we say this is it, he said. “Without wreckage, we cant say its definitely here. Weve got to go down and have a look.” The ping locator is pulled behind the ship at a depth of 3 kilometers and is designed to detect signals at a range of 1.8 kilometers, meaning it would need to be almost on top of the black boxes to detect them if they were on the ocean floor, about 4.5 kilometers deep.
