BEST OF THE DREAM: TOP 10 SONGS!

I did this post to pay my respects to THE DREAM, an artist who is consistently doing GREAT R&B music. Nowadays, R&B artists are sooo scared to do real R&B records. Remember, R&B music doesn't have to be slow, a nice mid-tempo record is still r&b music. On the other hand, that TECHNO music, that ain't it bruh, not even close.

07. MAKE UP BAG

THE FIST PUMP SONG BATTLE: BEST VERSION?!

I'm not sure how many versions of this song will drop. You can blame MTV's JERSEY SHORE for this FIST PUMPcraze. It's odd that all three of these songs dropped around the same time. They of course have the same concept but different beats, different rappers, and different lyrics. The last time I remember a song battle like this was between WHOOT THERE IT IS (95 South) and WHOOMP THERE IT IS (Tag Team)...I know I'm dating myself with that reference (haaaa).

MUSIC VIDEOS BANNED FROM BET!!!

I can understand how some of these videos were banned from BET. But the problem is, BET is not consistent with banning videos...how can some videos get the "green light" and some don't. It's ironic how Rihanna's MAN DOWN video was allowed but BET wouldn't air Teairra Mari's video because they said the song sent the wrong message to young girls. HUH?!

So, according to BET, it's okay for a woman to kill a man but it's not okay for a woman to have a man "sponsor" her. I'm not saying Teairra's song is a good representation of women but I can name A LOT of videos that are getting played on BET right now that are very degrading to women and these songs/videos are performed by male artists.

DIDDY KILLED THESE REMIXES: DON'T HATE!

It's sooo easy to HATE on Diddy because for ONE....he's wealthy. For TWO...he brags about his wealth every chance he gets. For THREE...he jumps on everyone's songs but he's NOT a rapper. Don't get me wrong...from a business aspect, I have the utmost respect for P. Diddy.

Unlike some people, I can admit that I am a fan of his music...he's not as terrible as most people say he is. You can hate on Diddy "the rapper" as much as you want but you have to admit that he KILLED these remixes...when it comes to talking SH*T, who does it better than DIDDY?!!!

HOT 97 TV PRESENTS: LOS BLANCOS

Hot 97 TV has a new show entitled LOS BLANCOS. How and why HOT 97 (a radio show) is now doing television is beyond me. Anyway, Los Blancos is the tale of two sisters who have taken on the responsibility of running their family owned drug business in a male dominated world. They have everything to lose and everything to prove.

GREAT ARTISTS WHO'VE NEVER GONE PLATINUM

Today, it's not as easy for an artist to go platinum. In today's market, you MUST have a very strong fan base in order to sell ONE MILLION albums. All of these artists on my list are very popular artists with huge fan bases...not to mention, they all have had very good albums that should have gone platinum (at the least).

Besides, I can name a TON of BAD albums that have gone platinum. What's the point of having 4 MILLION twitter followers if you can't even produce a platinum album? I'm not knocking the artists, it's more of a question for the fans...

CELINE DION: THE REMAKES

When Celine Dion does a remake, she completely takes over the song and it becomes hers. Celine is the biggest selling female artist of all time, and the moment she sings a single music note, it’s not hard to figure out why she’s the GREATEST. Celine is in her own league---the ultimate professional artist.

WHEN ARTISTS MAKE PEACE- BEEF VS. PEACE

When it comes to hip hop, beefing is somewhat of a right of passage. Although beefing with other artists gets more attention,I always respect it more when artists reconcile…now, if we could only get a B2K reunion popping…hmmm, considering the recent events with Raz-B, I doubt that will EVER happen.

VIDEO: TAMIA- BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE

Being a TAMIA fan, I am shocked I didn't know she released a new music video...so I guess seeing this video was a BEAUTIFUL SURPRISE (haaa). As usual, Tamia delivered some heat on this song. She is so underrated, it's a shame.

PRODUCER'S CORNER: NOAH 40 SHEBIB

Producer phenom NOAH 40 SHEBIB is arguably the best producer in the music industry. Noah's melodic beats has transformed what many people think hip hop represents...Noah has proven hip hop doesn't have to be a loud club anthem. His music has also been a winning formula in pop and r&b music. I obviously couldn't put ALL of the songs Noah has produced but I listed some of my favorites. I must also note that some of these songs below were co-produced by Noah. Anyway, if you haven't heard the new song he produced for JoJo entitled DEMONSTRATE, please take a listen....it's a CLASSIC record.

REAL MEANINGS BEHIND HIT SONGS!

If you’re obsessed with music like me, then you probably dissect lyrics just as much as I do. Even before the FCC cracked down on the music industry, artists found clever ways to bypass the rules and get their controversial music to the masses. A clever mind can get you so far! For example, have you ever REALLY listened to Elton John’s ROCKET MAN? What do you think the song is really about? On the surface, the song is supposed to be about an astronaut but if you read between the lines, you’ll see what the song is truly about…stick with me, I’ll teach you a thing or two (haaaaa).



ELTON JOHN- ROCKET MAN


Lyrics:
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Zero hour nine a.m.
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
It's lonely out in space
On such a timeless flight
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out …

HAWKS LOOKING TO TRADE JOE JOHNSON!!

A deal between the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets is brewing. Sources say the Hawks are trying to trade its superstar, JOE JOHNSON, to the Nets. In exchange for Johnson, the Hawks would get Anthony Morrow, Jordan Farmar, Jordan Williams, Johan Petro, DeShawn Stevenson, and the Rockets 2013 projected first round pick. Does this mean Johnson won't get his 90 million dollars the Hawks owe him?!!

MAYBACH MUSIC RECYCLING HOOKS???

Although the hooks don't use all of the same words...the flow, concept, and delivery are EXACTLY the same. Why would Ross release/record a single that is so similar to Wale's new song?!
