Entertainment: Alicia Keys "Unthink-able" Music Video featuring Drake

May 12, 2010

My honey dedicated this song to me and I just heard it for the first time last week. The video is a little confusing but I’m loving Alicia Keys’ draped dress and jewelry. The video spans different eras from the 1950s to the present. Rapper Drake co-wrote the song with her and sings background vocals. Thanks for the video Necole Bitchie!

Entertainment: Do Women Have to Take it Off to Get On?

April 20, 2010

Let’s face it sex-sells but at some point in time, like a scorned lover, some things get old fast. We see not much has change with the Miami Miss, Trina. The self-professed Baddest Chick, has taken it all off for King magazine, one more time. Not that we’re surprised. King mag is relaunching again with their upcoming Summer 2010 issue. Amidst rumors of bankruptcy, husband-stealing, side-chickn’, trickin’ and her constant determination to prove her badness, we’ll be glad when we actually see Trina showcase something other than her infamous derriere. Even Weezy didn’t love it that much. It’s almost cute when you’re 25, tragic when you’re over 30. Hopefully her new album will prove that Trina is more than a warmed over one-hit, no pun intended, wonder. 

Entertainment: Album Review – Ludacris’ Battle of the Sexes

April 11, 2010

 Ludacris, one of the most talented rappers in music has created a winner with his latest effort, Battle of the Sexes. The 15 disc album is a non-stop party with banging hood anthems as well as romantic odes to significant others. On the album’s debut single and undoubtedly the best club song of the year, My Chick Bad, Luda enlists the quirky rap vixen Nicki Minaj to pay homage to his favorite girl. Monica lends her vocals on the upbeat Can’t Live Without You, while Lil Scrappy goes hard on the Everybody Drunk with a hook sample from Eightball & MJG’s You Don’t Want Drama.

Luda’s amazingly sexy flow and highly entertaining vocabulary are the key to this album’s success. his formula for sex, money, and murder (oh is competition that is), will keep his loyal fans on his team for years to come. Guests on the album include Trey Songz on the Sexroom track, FloRida, Lil Kim, I-20, and Gucci Mane. But the most hilarious track on the album is a mimic of Tiger Woods infamous voicemail call to his mistress on Sexting. On his lucky number seventh album, gotta love Luda’s sense of humor–huge!

March 24, 2010

Singer Monica hosted her release party for her upcoming album Still Standing at Arena in NYC. The slim singer looked prim and lady like in a black jacket, fitted skirt and matching booties with bling. Monica’s definitely got the pipes so I know the album will be a winner.
