LeToya – Nothing For Me

This unreleased Toya track was produced by Mike City (Brandy, Jamie Foxx). I can see why this was left off her album; the beat is crazy but the track just isn’t anything special. Still worth a download though.{Link Removed As Requested}


Brandy – Just Like Tommy

With all that is going on with Brandy, I wasn’t expecting any new material from her for a while. Nonetheless, Just Like Tommy is a great track…not album material but still good. It has a neo-soul vibe to it, something she hasn’t done in the past.

Omarion – Icebox (ft. Usher)

This remix of Icebox premiered on Hot 97 a few days ago and features none other than Usher. I was kinda surprised by the Usher feature as many see Omarion as one of many Usher imitators. Like the original, this version is HOT.

Paris Bennet – I Will

Former American Idol contestant Paris Bennet is to release her debut album ‘Princess P’ in April and this track will be featured on the set. The inspirational song includes a mass choir and Paris really delivers on the vocals.

Jennifer Hudson – And I Am Telling You (ONLY Live Performance) (AUDIO)

I know I posted the link to the video a last week, but here is the audio of this one-off live performance of the track. Jennifer nailed it.

This one has been doing the rounds on the net for the last few days and has caused a small controversy. So many different opinions…I’m still kinda speechless. What do you think?!

Whitney and Ray J were seen leaving a restaurant together in Beverley Hills on Wednesday. I did not believe the stories about these two being an item and I’m still not sure. Something sure is going on though. The video below shows Whitney blowing kisses to Ray J once they part to their individual cars and she can be heard telling him ‘that sh*t is off the chain’ LOL. This is the oddest couple in a long while; yes Ray J sucks but you can’t fault Whitney for getting hers.
Former Destiny’s Child member LeToya and Beyonce’s dad Matthew Knowles embraced each other publicly; apparently showing that there is no bad blood between them. Contrary to what some may think, I believe this display of unity at Russell Simmons Hip Hop Summit last week was genuine. LeToya has carved out a successful solo career and Papa Knowles has made Destiny’s Child and Beyonce into global superstars, so its all good.

R. Kelly – I’m A Flirt (Remix)(ft. T.I & T-Pain)

I’m really feeling the track alot. It’s one of his best singles in a while. This is a remix version of a track, of the same name, Kels was featured on with Bow Wow; Bow Wow ain’t no where to be seen/heard on this version though (a good thing). The video is pretty much what you’ve come to expect from him, so no complaints there.

What do you think?

World renown supermodel, Naomi Campbell has been sentenced to five days Community Service for assaulting her maid with a mobile phone. Campbell, who pleased guilty to the offence last year, will clean the streets of New York as part of her punishment. Similar to when Boy George served the same punishment late last year, the paparazzi will no doubt be out in full force to catch a glimpse of this.
This woman is mad. I swear this is like the 3rd or 4th time she has beaten up one of her assistants?! It’s kinda funny though; she don’t look the type to go ‘GANSGTA’ on anybody but she obviously does. It wouldn’t surprise me if she did it again.
Rapper Akon appears on the April edition of popular magazine VIBE (due to hit the stands 20th March). According to Bossip he says in the interview:

There was a big rumour about me having many wives. It started off as a joke and it got serious. And then I was just running with it to see how far it’d go. In a way, I was causing controversy, ’cause I knew certain people that wouldn’t normally attend to me, that will make them go, ‘What?’ So, in a way, it was a publicity stunt.

What was the point? It didn’t really do anything for him. I really don’t see what the hype is with this guy anyway. One minute everyone is complaining about his annoying voice and now everyone loves him. African voodoo?

Teen R&B star, Chris Brown, dropped by for an interview with New Yorks Hot 97 radio station. Brown, 17, further denied that the leaked explicit pictures are of him. They are fake. I had a feeling they were not real; even if they were..oh well.

Check out the interview…

As former Destiny’s Child member, Kelly Rowland, preps her sophomore album – ‘Ms Kelly’ (due June 26th), another track rumoured to be on the album has leaked. The song is called ‘All On You’ and features rapper Lil Wayne. I’m pretty sure the version that has leaked is a demo, as only some parts sound like Kelly (a session vocalist was probably used for the demo). The track definitely is (to be) a Kelly song as Lil Wayne name drops her alot throughout the track. It’s got a real old-skool funk vibe to it; I’m feeling this one alot.
Check it out and tell me what you think….

In other Kelly news, she recently stopped by Power 105 for an interview with DJ Clue. A relaxed Rowland spoke excitedly about some of the tracks from her new album (some of which you may remember from the canned ‘My Story’ album). Take a listen…

A new track by Fantasia has hit the net called ‘Said I Wouldn’t (No More)’. It’s actually a left-over track from her self-titled second album. The song, produced by Soulshock and Karlin, is real catchy and is instantly likable. Her album was one the best of last year and this would have made it all the more better. Check it out…

The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, arrived in Japan yesterday for a fan appreciation event. As with most of his rare appearances, screaming fans greeted the mega-star at the airport. Fans hoping to interact with Jackson at the event are reportedly to pay $3,500 for a few mins with him. Hmmm

This pic of Mariah was taken on the set of Indie film ‘Tennessee’, in which she has a supporting role.

I’m guessing she looks like ‘that’ as part of the role. Hopefully this film is better than her last film effort – Glitter. Then again, even if this flops, the backlash won’t be as bad as she is not the main character.
