Are you checking for Mary’s new album?
The video for R. Kelly’s latest single ‘Rock Star’ (ft. Ludacris & Kid Rock) debuted on Yahoo Launch yesterday (September 18th). I’m really feeling the single choices from Kelly’s current LP ‘Double Up’ so far; ‘Rock Star’ is an album highlight. It’s a shame, then, that the video doesn’t really do the track any justice. Budgeting must have been an issue, because the video comes across real cheap – especially for an artist of his caliber. There’s no positive spin to put on this one; a case of good song, ruined by a crappy video.
What do you think fo the video?
The video for Mario’s latest single ‘Crying Out For Me’ premiered earlier this week on BET’s Access Granted. Things have been moving really slow with Mario’s ‘Go!’ project, so it’s good to see him finally put out a second single from. I’ve had the Polow Da Don track on heavy rotation for a many months. Anyway, about the video – I’m liking it. The storyline closely mirrors that of the track and stands as one of his better vids. Following numerous delays, ‘Go!’ is set to hit stores on October 30th.
What do you think of the video?
Bajan beauty Rihanna performed her forthcoming new single ‘Hate That I Love You’ at Yahoo studios recently. Decent performance, but I’m still not feeling the single choice. Though I found her album to be kinda lacking in material with any substance, certain tracks i.e. ‘Push Up On Me’ and ‘Sell Me Candy’ are single-worthy material – much more so than the current single choice. Anyway, the video for ‘Hate That I Love You’ was shot last month and should be debuting in the coming weeks.
What do you think of the performance?
After her showstopping performance of current single ‘No One’ at the VMA’s this past week, I’m really hyped for Alicia’s new CD. ‘As I Am’ hits stores November 13th.
