Album Review: ‘Girl Disrupted’ by Sevyn Streeter

While I speak for many by saying I enjoyed all of her singles and EPs, it’s great to finally have an album from Sevyn Streeter. I’m sure no one is more happy about that than the versatile artist herself. Sevyn gives her all on GIRL DISRUPTED, as she always does, sounding edgier and more transparent than ever. With R&B at the record’s core, listeners are … Continue reading Album Review: ‘Girl Disrupted’ by Sevyn Streeter

Music Review: Rihanna’s “Unapologetic”

Released: November 19, 2012

Label: Roc Nation/Island Def Jam

Purchase: Amazon

A little step up from her previous oversexed Talk that Talk, but still not even close to impressive. Unapologetic sounds mostly exhausted and rushed. There’s nothing wrong with putting out an album every year to stay current if you can handle it, but at least take the time to perform songs  that will be embedded in the hearts and minds of listeners. Sure there are likable tracks here and there, but not good enough to give goose bumps.  Continue reading “Music Review: Rihanna’s “Unapologetic””

Music Review: Keyshia Cole “Woman to Woman”

Woman to Woman

Release date: November 19, 2012

Label: Geffen Records

Purchase: Amazon | iTunes

Interesting how just recently I was venting over r&b being dormant and forgotten in the industry, and here comes Ms. Keyshia Cole with an album that sounds like a blast from the past. Woman to Woman is deemed the best album the soulful songstress has released since 2008’s A Different Me, with 2010’s Calling All Hearts short of the artist’s full potential. 

After being in the biz for over seven years, Cole is ready to show how much she’s evolved in her artistry and as a ‘woman’. You know what that means, it’s time to analyze and find out just how good Keyshia’s fifth attempt is. Should I add this one to my collection, or give it a pass?

[Review] Jason Derulo’s “Future History”

Jason Derulo never had me at hello. I just didn’t get into the “Whatcha Say” phase and you can blame it on the auto tune. And don’t think I’ll adjust myself to warming up to it anytime soon. So, what are my views on his sophomore effort? There are definitely some mixed feelings. “Future History has songs I could get in to but then there are some that are ineffective and forgettable. The album sounds rushed and passionless. Jason should’ve either spent more time working on better tracks with stronger substances, or find some other credible songwriters to work with cause with a few exception (and I do mean few), everything else sounds like a bunch of empty barrels. With that said, let’s get down to business. Continue reading “[Review] Jason Derulo’s “Future History””

Beyonce “Runs” the Billboard Music Awards

 

Beyonce was presented with the Millennium Artist award at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday May 22nd, and the artist displayed a killer performance of her latest “Run The World (Girls)“. The global entertainer said that being presented with such an award by music greats she admires and by her family was “the best moment of her life”, and i’m sure I speak for all her loyal fans when I say that we’re truly proud of her and can attest to the fact that this woman is absolutely hardworking. She deserves that honor and i’m sure there’s much more to come. Relive the performance by watching the video below:
