Ashanti

Studio singer Ashanti released a new image today to get social media tongues wagging. All Ashanti does these days is leak images of herself in various stages of undress. In the latest image from her long delayed album Braveheart Ashanti strikes a pose wearing only her acid washed jeans and a few bundles of the finest Yaki. We can’t hate; Ashanti is fine.

Tamar Braxton The One

Friend of the blog, Tamar Braxton’s new single, “The One”, was just released on iTunes. Tamar’s breezy vocals bounces along to a sample of “Juicy Fruit” by Mtume. The uptempo track also samples The Notorious BIG’s “Juicy”, off his 1994 debut album Ready to Die. “The One” is sure to be the anthem of the Summer, just as “Juicy Fruit” was for us back in 1983.

Chris Brown

Loyal reader Bird informed me that troubled singer Chris Brown released a new song this morning, titled “I Can’t Win”, in which he laments about being with a girl who’s in love with a bottle. I’m not one to put much stock in song lyrics, but in this case, I wonder who he’s talking about?

    Why you angry all the time?
    Why you don’t wanna ride for me?
    Girl we used to make love
    When you called I would follow
    Now the only thing you love is a bottle

Listen to the song and read the lyrics after the break.

Ashanti Never Should Have

R&B singer Ashanti reminisces about love gone wrong in this latest single off her upcoming album, Braveheart. Ashanti is all too familiar with heartbreak and being the innocent victim of a smooth criminal who never loved her in the first place. The 32-year-old “Foolish” singer spent several years of her life in an unfulfilling relationship with rapper Nelly, who considered himself single throughout their relationships. All the red flags were there that the relationship would end badly, but Ashanti — like most needy women — ignored the signs.
