Musician Kanye West surprised his followers on social media by dropping the title of his 8th Studio album, So Help Me God. Only Kanye knows what the album cover art means. The art is a diamond with roman numeral M’s at the corners. Each M represents 1,000 — if that means anything to you.
Singer Jazmine Sullivan was forced to put her career on hold to deal with personal issues in her life, such as her weight gain and a failed relationship.
Sullivan emerged from her self-imposed exile to drop a new album, Reality Show. She says she has accepted who she is — a domestic abuse survivor.
Rozonda Thomas, right, and Tionne Watkins, also known as Chilli and T-Boz of the group TLC, are on a mission to record what they call the last and final album of their careers. The ladies stopped by the Huffington Post offices in NYC to promote their new Kickstarter campaign to beg for money to make their last and final album a reality.
I love this song. Blue-eyed soul singer Elle Varner ponders the mysteries of the heart in the music video for her new break-up anthem “Cold Case”. In the video, directed by Lenny Bass, Varner writhes and slithers all over a handsome chocolate dreamboat as she agonizes over the fallacies of romantic love.
Rap icon Lil Kim went from 0-100 on R&B singer and reality star K. Michelle yesterday. Before we get to the roasting I should mention that K. Michelle’s current album, Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? (Atlantic Records), is on pace to top 100,000 in record sales next week. That puts her in very rare company as only 2 other urban artists — and no other female R&B singer — sold more than 100K records in all of 2014!
Furthermore, I listened to K. Michelle’s album yesterday and it’s actually pretty good. So put aside your personal opinion of her and go support our urban artists by copping the CD!
Now on to the roasting!
Rap mogul Lil Wayne and his shameless concubine, Christina Milian, debuted their new song “Start a Fire” at the 2014 American Music Awards last night.
Harlem socialite Azealia Banks and her family bought up as many copies of her new album as they could afford. But she still failed to crack the top 20 on the Billboard charts this week. Her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, barely sold 11,000 copies — a dismal failure in anyone’s book.
