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.
So Mary J Blige has this new artist (the first to be signed to her label Matriarch. Matriarch, is a subsidiary of Interscope records. The singer’s name is Starshell and she is currently working on her debut album. You would think that she was a soul/rnb artist but actually shes a pop/dance artist whose music will blend well with the current songs on theBillboard Hot 100. Starshell’s debut single is entitled Superluva. It’s a contemporary, pop track and it’s kind of layered. While there’s nothing exactly amazing about Superluva, iStill like it. iCan totally see myself and my friends getting boogie to this in the club…or the car.
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.
So iWas on YouTube doing my daily Britney Spears session, and 4 some reason, iWanted 2 hear her telephone demo (iDon’t really like it too much but hey its a demo 4 a reason). If you didn’t know, Lady Gaga originally wrote her hit single Telephone that features Beyonce for Britney’s album Circus. But Britney’s management rejected the song and Gaga kept it for herself. I’m glad that they rejected the song for Britney becuase the beat just doesn’t work for her voice. So anyway, iCame across this video on YouTube of Britney, Gaga, and Beyonce singing telephone together as a trio. Whoever did this should be paid because it’s hot. Then it hit me. What if Gaga Britney and Beyonce did a song together? Not only will it be one of the greatest collaborations of the next 10 years, but it’ll be the greatest collboration with 3 of the most groundbreaking women in music on the same song. Check 0ut the Telephone mash-up that was very well put together and judge 4 yourself.
This is the album cover for Fantasia’s upcoming 3rd album Back To Me, which is due out on July 27th (the day b4 my step fathers birthday). The album was originally scheduled to be released on July 13th (my birthday), but as we can see, it has been pushed back. The cover to me shows a young, soulful artist who has found peace within herself and her family life. Her two singles Even Angles and Bittersweet have yet to chart on any of the Billboard Charts (that’s right, not even the RnB Charts), but iDon’t think that will stop her. She has a pretty committed fanbase, and with the help of her reality TV show, I’m sure the album will reach gold status at least and debut well. The album will have 12 songs (which is great a RnB album in my opinion), and only has 1 feature appearance which is Cee-Lo Green. Go head Fanny!

Well this is intresting. Take a look at this cupcake from bakehappy (you can check them out here http://bakehappy.blogspot.com). Does this cartoon character look familiar? If you aren’t a Britney Spears fan, iDon’tthink u would recognize it right off the back. To celebrate Britney breaking the twitter record for most followers (5 million and counting), the people over at Bake Happy decided to make a Britney themed cupcake. They went with her Baby One More Time look, which iFind interesting being that she broke a record with that single and it launchedher career as well. Being a Britney fan myself iMust say that iLove the cupcake and iThink it’s very cute. Though it doesn’t really look like her (hey I’m a stan of hers, iHave to say something negative) it’s still very much creative and I’m sure if Britney herself saw it she would love it. iDon’t think iWouldeat this actually. It’s to cute and interesting to do mess it up. iWould put this in my freezer and save it as a souvenir.
4 those of you who didn’t know, Brandy wanted to take a shot at being a female rapper. She appeared on Timbaland’s Shock Value II album, and even showed her skills on her reality TV show with her parents and brother Ray J entitled A Family Business. According to gossiponthis.com, Brandy says that even though she’s been rapping under alter ego Bran’Nu, don’t expect her to come out with a Hip-Hop album anytime soon, but maybe two songs on her upcoming album may feature a rap verse. iThink that shes an good rapper, though iPrefer her singing. Monica raps on her tracks at time and she’s fairly well also. If you watch the show on VH1 like myself, you’ll know that Sonja (her mother) wasn’t feeling Bran’Nu at all, and iKnow for a fact that she’s glad Brandy’s not going through with it at all. After all, it’s not like she’s a Missy Elliott or a Lil Kim.
After waiting for idk maybe 2 months, my fellow Gaga fans, stans, and little monsters have all been waiting for the Alejandro video. When the video hadn’t even began production at that time, we already had our thoughts of what to expect: guys, controversy, and guys. Well we got that and more. After watching the video the iWas shocked, confused, and scared. The stans (stalker + fan = stan, hence Eminem’s song Stan) loved the video and instantly started dissing Christina Aguilera (and vice versa, the Xtina fans we’re actually trying to get the video taken off of YouTube, at least they we’re on my twitter timeline). iUnderstand what the song is about…but iDon’t get the concept of the video (not to mention it’s 8 minutes long…look Gaga we don’t need all of this damn unnecessary stuff at the beginning of the video…or the middle)!!!! iThought that maybe after the 1st 4 minutes, the concept would kick in but all iCould come up with is that she was probably a sex slave…who so happens 2 despise her religion…or a religious sex slave who supports gay rights. Overall Must say, iLove the creativity that Gaga has. iWish that iWas as creative as she was, but the video just didn’t do it for me. Alejandro isn’t even really a song iLike on The Fame Monster, iWas hoping that the video would change that for me. iAm very much disappointed so sadly iGive the video 6.7/10.
