2 words...BRITNEY SPEARS. Mama is back with 'Ooh La La.' A leak of the demo was released to which Britney wasn't too happy but, now the final version is here.
Britney never releases a bad single. Ever. This is no different. It's pop perfection. I wonder when we can expect the new album from Brit. I also wonder if we will be getting any good performances from her. Here's hoping.
There are many artists that make their mark on society and the industry but, there are very few that are trendsetters. Trendsetters are often not appreciated immediately, it can sometimes take years before what they are doing becomes popular.
Kelis effortlessly glided through genres, fashion, hair, being a true chameleon while still standing out from the rest. Being a trendsetter was something that Kelis was born to do. A combination of both her parents, an African-American father who was a jazz musician and a Chinese-Puerto Rican mother that was a fashion designer, when you look at the description of her parents, who Kelis is begins to make so much sense.
Although Kelis has a naturally beautiful contralto voice, earlier in her career she often took the route of choosing to rap and talk over her tracks creating a style all her own but, leaving music listeners wondering if she actually had vocal talent. To showcase her vocal abilities Kelis stripped down her songs to the bare acoustic minimal.
Take a journey through some of my favorite Kelis video moments.
Usher performed his song 'Twisted' on 'The Voice' last night.
He looked pretty suave, sounded pretty good, and moved even better. I'm surprised that he is continuing to support his latest album Looking 4 Myself however, I am happy to see that he hasn't lost that thing that made us all love him so.
Ciara performed at LA Pride and put on a pretty good show. I love that she's focusing on the vocal aspects of her performances rather than all of the dancing that can often times be counterproductive.
Unfortunately, for Ciara someone purposely embarrassed her by serving her court papers in the middle of her performance. I won't get on why many gays are so messy and have such a quest for attention but, I will say that what they did was so incredibly disrespectful and in such bad taste that I'm embarrassed for them.
Check out Ciara's performance of 'Body Party' as well as her interrupted performance of 'Promise' below.
If you don't know by now Brandy Rayana Norwood is my favorite artist of like my entire life. Well my Queen touched down in Nashville, Tennessee to give them a taste of her heavenly vocal chords.
Brandy treated the crowd to performances of her massive hits, some of the songs from her latest album Two Eleven, and a tribute to her friend and idol, Whitney Houston.
Check the performances below to experience the amazingness that is B-Rocka!
R&B fans rejoice, Glenn Lewis has returned with his new single 'Can't Say Love.' from his upcoming album Moment of Truth which will be released August 20th. I'm intrigued by this return, I've always felt that Glenn's voice was eerily similar to the great Stevie Wonder.
You may remember what I feel is Glenn's most memorable song and my favorite song from him 'Don't You Forget It,' relive that single and check out his new one below.
Ashanti performs her latest single 'Never Should Have' on 'Marie' and her voice is in the best shape that it's ever been. Or, maybe this song showcases her voice in ways that none of her other songs were able to. Nevertheless, I do really like this song and Ashanti's flawless performance made me like it even more.
Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran have a beautiful duet, 'Everything Has Changed.' Their voices blend together so beautifully and compliment each other in a way that I would've never guessed.
The video for the song is simply adorable and showcases the relationship of two children growing up together. Taylor and Ed make a brief appearance at the end of the video as what appears as the children's parents. Very cute.
Selena Gomez continues to show us that she is no longer a little girl. 'Slow Down' is a hot song and she looks stunning on the cover. Although, the song doesn't require or showcase much vocal ability, it does show production that is more tailored for her voice.
