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.
Rap mogul T.I., aka Tip, went on a shopping spree in Los Angeles yesterday, and he picked up a few things for Sandrarose.com readers! Peep T.I.’s receipt after the break!
Keyshia Cole dropped a new music video for her single “N.L.U.” off her new album Point of No Return.
No longer content with crafting hits for artists such as Monica Brown and Usher, music producer Rico Love is going the route of other music producers-turned-artists. Love’s first attempt at recording a solo album was in 2007. Crooner Usher Raymond, who signed the 31-year-old songwriter to his US Records, encouraged Love to stick to what he knows best: songwriting and producing. But Love didn’t listen.
Today, Love released the new music video for his hit single “He Got Money” featuring Ciara‘s baby daddy, Future on auto-tunes. Watch the video after the break.
