Leaving Matthew Knowles management and Columbia Records has got to be the best thing that Kelly has done! 1st she gets featured on the Grammy award winning single When Love Takes Over by French Dj David Guetta from his album One Love, then she drafted Jeff Rabham as her new manager and inked a deal with Universal Motown, which is also the home of big name artists such as Lil’Wayne, Busta Rhymes, and Legend Stevie Wonder. If that wasn’t enough, she signed up to record the MTN theme song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South African, entitled Everywhere You Go, featuring an all-star supergroup of international artists called Rhythm of Africa United. And now she’s now working on her 3rd studio album who’s title has yet to be released. The album is a combination of the urban/pop Destiny’s Child sound and Kelly’s new found love for dance music. Commander was released in May 2010 as an American promotional single and as the international lead single from the project. If that wasn’t enough, She already has the title and cover art work for the next 2 singles Grown Ass Woman and Rose Colored Glasses. iReally think that Kelly actually has a chance to prove that she’s just as good as Beyonce (better if you ask me).
The Rose Colored Glasses Single cover gives me this late 70’s early 80’s vibe. It’s simple and mysterious.
Grown Ass Woman’s single cover gives me straight 70’s. I’m talking Cher/Donna Summers Hair, Diana Ross makeup, and Grace Jones pose technique fierce level 1. iLove it ! ! ! ! ! !

The Pop/Rock/Hip Hop group N.E.R.D is preparing to release their fourth studio album entitled Nothing. The album is set to be released on September 7 of this year and the first single from the album is called Hot N Fun. It features Nelly Furtado. Pictures of the shoot were released online and it seems like it’s set in a dessert in California or Nevada. A teaser clip was released online a few days ago and shows close ups of Pharell and Nelly Furtado, along with alot of women! By looking at the 30 second clip, it seems like they were all on an somewhat exotic/sexabition road trip and get stuck in the dessert, which makes the whole situation, well Hot n Fun. iThink iNeed to add Mr. Williams 2 my list of future ex lovers in my head. i 4got just exactly how much iLike not only him but N.E.R.D. as well. They are very much so underrated 2 me. The trio are as good as artists as they are song writers and producers. Hopefully thins album will at least go gold. Any way, check out the pics, video teaser, and full length song below.

When Birthday Sex hit the Internet back in late 2008 iFell in love with it instantly. When it was released as a single in March of 2009, iWas still very much so in love with it. When the video came out around early June iWas still very much so in love with it, but when the album came out on June 30th (yes ibought it) iAlways skip Birthday Sex because not only did iWear it out 4 myself, but the radio, TV, and people in general did so as well. Though 3 more singles were released (they claim that 2 were just 4 promo, but when they don’t chart at all, that’s the excuse you take and run with) none managed to crack the top 50 nor help the album sell. Well now it seems that Jeremih is working on his 2nd album entitled All About You, and this time for his 1st single he’s bringing along Ludacris. The name of the track is I Like.It was produced by Mick Schultz (the executive producer of his debut album), and just like Birthday Sex the single is indeed very steamy lyrically. It creates a rather hypnotic appeal and iLike it (no pun intended). iCan’t wait until his new album is released. iLike Jeremih and iThink he could have a very moderate career, such as Trey Songz. If the record company promotes him well enough, and put out singles that would chart within the top 50 then he will be okay. Take a listen to the song and get all hypnotized like iDid.
