Are you enjoying Danity Kane’s “Lemonade?”

I’m liking the summer vibe to this urban pop single, but I’m a bit sad because they’re a member short. As much as I’m happy for Andrea, I just don’t get why she signed on for the group’s reunion when she wouldn’t be participating in their comeback. Well, anyways, hopefully she’ll be swinging back to DK once she has her baby. But that’s not the … Continue reading Are you enjoying Danity Kane’s “Lemonade?”

[Exclusive] Katy Tiz: An interview with the “loud one”

Who is Katy Tiz? “I’m always the loud one.” Let’s leave that fact aside for now. Katy’s a singer/songwriter from the UK getting ready to drop her debut album, and is currently gaining notable attention for the playful single ‘Famous‘. Seems like a floodgate had burst open to unleash some talented British musicians lately, because Ms. Tiz is the latest natural born talent on route … Continue reading [Exclusive] Katy Tiz: An interview with the “loud one”

[Music Review] Brandy’s Two Eleven

Brandy Two Eleven Deluxe TheLavaLizard

Release date: October 16, 2012

Label: RCA

[Sigh!] Where do I begin and end with this album review, hold on tight to your seats. This captain is pissed.

I’ve been looking forward to Brandy’s album return. There are not enough adjectives in the Oxford dictionary to describe the atrocity and all kinds of fail that is this album. Folks, I’m not soft with my reviews, sorry to grate your nerves. I believe in   writing a review free of bias, and unadulterated in opinion. When I asked Kai for hers she did not hesitate to state, “It is not worth bootlegging. It is the kind of album one doesn’t care if it leaks before release date, because it is just yeah…..”[loss of words]. She even called Jesus, then summoned Him back immediately to His seat in glory, for His help could not restore her faith in this album.  Woah! Continue reading “[Music Review] Brandy’s Two Eleven”

Music Review: P!nk’s “The Truth About Love”

The Truth About LoveReleased: September 18, 2012

Label: RCA

Purchase: Amazon | iTunes

Rating: 4.7/5

After a good listen to P!nk’s sixth studio album one thing stood out the most to me, the outspoken   lady is still very much the same. If you were expecting motherhood to tame the fiery songstress then you are definitely in for a wake up. The Truth About Love celebrates 12 years of this unpredictable artist in the biz, sparking up new messages about love, life, and other interesting things, while P!nk’s signature realness reverberates throughout the entire album. It’s indeed a very good sixth effort; the singer’s raspy and sexy voice flowed well on a few smoother tracks, and intensified on the more loud and rowdy ones. Have you ever wondered how this performer takes musical breaks but still manages to “blow” our minds when she returns? That’s easy, there’s always that catchy first single to reel us in. Continue reading “Music Review: P!nk’s “The Truth About Love””

Ciara wants you to say “Sorry”

And I will, for ever doubting she could comeback with a track worth listening to. Damn! Sorry is in my opinion the best Ciara release since Never Ever. That music video is just as hot. I like how real she kept it, even shedding a few believable tears towards the end. Her voice sounds emotionally charged as well. Whoa! I’m loving this one Ci-Ci. Check … Continue reading Ciara wants you to say “Sorry”

Nelly Furtado Returns With ‘Big Hoops’

The Canadian singer has been M.I.A for several years now and I’m sure many like myself are beyond elated to have her back. She was definitely missed to a point of almost forgotten, but thankfully ‘Big Hoops‘ is released before Nelly is completely erased from our memories. This is the first single from Furtado’s upcoming Summer album, “The Spirit Indestructible.” Check out the eccentric track and tell us what you think. It’s good that the singer has kept her cray cray style. Continue reading “Nelly Furtado Returns With ‘Big Hoops’”

Will Crystal Kay’s Crossover Be Successful?

It was recently revealed that Crystal Kay will be making an appearance on Far East Movement‘s upcoming fourth studio album ‘Dirty Bass.’ The Japanese r&b and urban pop star is reportedly working on an english album for international release and hoping this collaboration will be a breakthrough. Crystal is talented, that I’ll give her, but let’s be real we all know that the only way an artist can make it in the U.S market is if their promo team eats, sleeps and breathes their music.  Continue reading “Will Crystal Kay’s Crossover Be Successful?”

NU’EST Brings It, A Little

Kpop’s latest arrival is a male group from Pledis Entertainment (home of After School) called NU’EST. Initially, I was under the impression that their name is pronounced ‘newest’, but apparently its pronounced new east. Anyways, whatever it is they call themselves or what you so choose to call them, I like their debut single album ‘FACE‘. And there’s absolutely no bias here. I’m not feeling them simply because I’m a fan of Kahi and After School, I truly like NU’EST and that intro has me hooked. Continue reading “NU’EST Brings It, A Little”

[Review] Mai kuraki’s “Over The Rainbow”

Album Review By Kai

Released: 01.12.2012

So, just who is Mai Kuraki? Well, not someone I’ve been listening to for years now so I couldn’t possibly begin to decipher her best from her “down” moments. What I can tell you though is that the Urban Jpop singer’s latest and 10th release is astonishing to my ears and I’m completely infatuated with her sound. “Over the Rainbow” solidifys a captivating album with vesatility. The artist made the utmost effort in bringing forth something strong and memorable, in terms of musical style and sense. I couldn’t stress enough on my inability to clearly understand and interpret the Japanese language much less any other foreign language outside of my native English, but I do feel the message in her singing and vocally she connects extraodinarily with my soul. Continue reading “[Review] Mai kuraki’s “Over The Rainbow””

May J. is a multi-lingual Japanese pop and r&b singer, songwriter, and host of the internationally known TV show J-Melo. This super talented lady was destined to become a star; developing a strong interest in music at a young age, and even balancing her education and career in order to achieve both. It takes drive and determination to succeed, and this artist certainly possesses the will power and ability needed for the journey. May’s set to release her 5th studio album, “SECRET DIARY,” which she described as “expressing what was hidden” from her music before. One can definitely agree that this album will be her most personal to date, as she’s revealing her “real experiences” through the songs. It’s evident that the singer is working hard on getting her music to the world, and with her undeniable talent and captivating charms, I’m certain the rest of the world will be shouting her name in no time.

Monica gets deep in “Until It’s Gone”

Leave it to Monica to give us some thought provoking and never changing r&b music. In her music video for “Until It’s Gone,” the singer invited actors Brian White and Malinda Williams to portray a couple on the edge because of Brian’s infidelity. The Missy Elliott and Jazmine Sullivan penned single had me emotional but also encouraged me to be more appreciative of every single thing I have now before it’s too late. What I’ve always loved about Monica is how real she keeps it real; this woman sells music and not sex. Her songs have substantial meaning and I’m sure some other singers can take a page out of her book. Anyways, “Until It’s Gone” is the second single from Monica’s upcoming seventh studio album “New Life.” Check out the video below and tell us what you think: Continue reading “Monica gets deep in “Until It’s Gone””
