Tune In Tuesday: New Album Releases

IMG_0190.JPG

It’s raining new releases today, but actually these albums were available yesterday. I  assume that they didn’t want to be overshadowed by the fanfare surrounding Taylor Swift’s album:

First up is the now defunct girl group Danity Kane’s DK3, which  features 10 tracks and guest appearance from Young Money’s Tyga. Next up is Jagged Edge with J.E. Heartbreak II, which is sequel to their classic J.E. Heartbreak. The album features 13 tracks. Hopefully it lives up to its predecessor(y’all know how I feel about sequels to classic album and songs).

R&B Diva’s  Syleena Johnson & Lil Mo dropped albums today as well. Syleena brings Chapter 6: Couples Therapy. The album features 14 tracks and guest appearances from fellow R&B Diva Leela James, Dave Hollister, Willie Taylor(Day 26). Lil Mo brings us The Scarlet Letter, which has 10 track. She is said to sing and rap on the album we’ll see how that sounds.

I am currently listening to all the album and will review them very soon.

Will you be picking up any of these albums?

[WATCH]Let Me Know-Tamar Braxton Featuring Future

IMG_0127.PNG

 

Tamartians Rejoice!

She! Me! Her! AKA Slaymar AKA Tamar has released the visual for her Future assisted single Let Me Know. The video was directed by Mrs. Braxton- Herbert herself. I honestly don’t know how she has the time with two reality shows(Braxton Family Values & Tamar & Vince), The Real, a new album, motherhood, and being a wife. But I guess the Chaka Khan song, “I’m Every Woman” rings true here, she is definitely a woman of many talents.

Tamar goes through several wardrobe/wig changes and even has one scene where she is covered in glitter. Future is absent from the video, I am assuming he was either moving that dope, busy with one of his baby’s mothers, or working on trying to get back into Ciara’s good graces who knows. Tamar is in the studio putting the finishing touches on her new album. The new season of Tamar and Vince premieres tonight at 10 pm on WE tv(This probably isn’t a good idea, what with Shonda Rhimes slaying Thursday nights with TGIT over on ABC, but hey what do I know?). I still haven’t decided how I feel about video, I am going to watch it a few more times.

Tune In Tuesday: Paperwork-T.I.

IMG_0123.JPG

The Kang’s new album, Paperwork, drops today. The album has 18 tracks and guest appearances out the ass! ‘About The Money’ featuring Young Thug and ‘Paperwork’ featuring Pharrell are both solid singles from the album. No Mediocre would have been better without Iggy, but I guess she’s the hot girl right now, so I get it!

Hopefully TIP deliver with this new album. The album is executive produced by Pharrell. I am currently listening to the album and the review is coming soon!

[NEW OBSESSION] Tiny & Shekinah’s Weave Trip

IMG_0122.PNG

So…tonight was episode 2 of Tiny and Shekinah’s Weave Trip on VH1 and when I say that this show is a hit! I mean that! Shekinah Jo is reality TV gold! The thing I love about her is she is just being herself! It’s not fake or manufactured. She is just naturally funny and lovable!

I need her to have her own show STAT! She needs to be a red carpet correspondent on someone’s network NOW! The thing I enjoy about T.I . And Tiny’s Family Hustle and Weave Trip is that fact that it balances out the ratchetness of the Love & Hip Hop Franchise. You need something wholesome after that The LHH coonery.

If you haven’t caught the Tiny and Shekinah’s Weave Trip please tune in! Tiny and Skekinah’s antics will have you in stitches!

[LISTEN] STREAM T.I.’S ALBUM ‘PAPERWORK’

ti-paperwork-deluxe

 

T.I. fans can rejoice, the “KANG” has made his 9th album, ‘Paperwork’ available to stream on iTunes Radio,  a week before it’s scheduled release date. The album was executive produced by Pharrell Williams, and it is the follow-up to 2012’s Trouble Man. We’ve heard the first two offering from the album No Mediocre featuring Iggy Azalea & About The Money featuring Young Thug, both of which I like. The album has 18 tracks and slew of guest appearances. Paperwork is said to be part of trilogy, so I guess that means we can expect 2 more albums in the near future.

Rising star Mila J’s EP drops today. It is titled M.I.L.A(Made In LA). It has 5 songs and features guest appearance from Ty Dolla $ign, B.o.B, and Problem.
