Just Vids: David Guetta featuring Sia- Titanium

This song features Sia.  I really like Sia's voice.  Its a little bit creepy, but in a good way.  That's the best way I can explain it...  This song peaked at # 7 on the Hot 100, making it David Guetta's 4th top 10 there.

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Interviews- Brandy on the F Word

Brandy did this interview for Music on Demand's The F Word.  She is very eloquent in this interview.  Her speaking voice is nice, here.

Keke Palmer is a huge Brandy fan.  Brandy loves her too, and even said that she would want Keke Palmer to play her in a movie about her life.

Just Vids: Alicia Keys- Girl on Fire

This is the official video. Alicia Keys plays a house mom in it (???).  Furthermore, it does not include Nicki Minaj's rap verses.   I was not expecting this for the video.  It isn't right for this song, I think.  Maybe you will like it.  I still like the song, though.

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Vocal Assassin- Brokenhearted Live

Great Performance!  Just Brandy, wailing...

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Vocal Assassin- Baby Live

When Brandy was younger, she always did this thing where she descended from a high voice into her deeper voice .   Her singing Baby is a good example of that. I can't even describe how crazy it is!!!  Her deep tones were full and silky smooth too.  Runs like butter...  I like this  one a lot, espescially that thing she does at about 2:40.

Just Vids: Adele- Skyfall (Lyrics)

This song is the theme to the 23rd James Bond movie.  It debuted on the Hot 100 2 weeks ago at # 8.  Did you know that this year marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the very 1st James Bond movie?

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Vocal Assassin- I Wanna Be Down Live

Brandy was fearless at the beginning of her career, which equated to some really great live performances. She really added some great ad-libs during this time. Here are some videos of Brandy performing her 1st single. She sang the song a different way both times. In the 1st performance she hit all those really high pretty,  fluttering  bird-like notes that she doesn't hit anymore, now that her voice is gotten much deeper in her adulthood. 

Just Vids: Usher- Numb

This is the video to Numb, the 4th single off of Usher's Looking 4 Myself.  The video is pretty cool.  Some of the comments on youtube the people  said it reminded them of the video for We Found Love by Rihanna.  I guess they say that because of the moving clouds and lights while he is standing on the wall.  I see what they are saying.  Its still a good watch.

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Vocal Assassin- On Thea

Most of America was introduced to the songstress that is Brandy on the television show Thea.  It began our now 18 year love affair with her voice.  On a very special episode, Brandy gives us her rendition of Anita Baker's Joy.

She also sings Aretha Franklin's classic, Respect.

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Vocal Assassin

Watch this video.  Its a compilation of some of the best live vocal performances by Brandy throughout her life.  It's really good.

Brandy, Brandy Brandy! Why I Love Her So Much...

If you haven't figured it out yet, I think Brandy is kind of a big deal...  The reason being she has a beautiful voice.  I am not the only person who thinks this.  Whitney Houston, arguably one of the greatest vocalists to ever live, gave Brandy her stamp of approval from the very beginning.  Also, many of today's biggest stars in the music industry praise Brandy for her vocal performance, and cite her as one of the best (if not THE best) vocalist of her peers.  Everyone from Kelly Rowland to Rihanna, Jazmine Sullivan, Keyshia Cole, Chris Brown, and India Arie. Check out these comments:

Ok. Let's just not take the star's word.  Let's look at some of Brandy's vocal performances.  

Just Vids: Alicia Keys- Girl on Fire (Lyrics)

Here is the lyrics video to Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys.

Brandy, Brandy, Brandy! Interviews- Sad.

Brandy has said in numerous interviews that she feels like Two Eleven is her last chance in the music industry,  and that is really sad. No one of her talent and accomplishments  should ever have to feel like that.  Brandy is amazing!  She has arguably THE (THE) best voice of any female artist under the age of  35 out today, plain and simple. That is why everyone has to support her latest album.

    Diamonds (2012)

    Rihanna just released the the audio to the 1st single off of her 7th studio album.  The single is entitled Diamonds.  She is singing in a different way, I would describe it as like someone who yodels.  It feels appropriate that she bust out a yodel at the end of this track, but she didn't.  Its pretty dope, still.  Listen for yourself.

    Mariah shows us a funnier side all while breaking Elvis Presley fans' hearts.  This became MC's 18th # 1 song on the hot 100.  (Only the Beatles have more).

    Keyshia Cole's 2nd album, Just Like You is, and always will be, the highest point in her career as far as I am concerned.  The album's 1st single, Let it Go was her most successful single ever on the Hot 100.  Then for the 3rd single off the album she releases I Remember, which stayed at # 1 on the r&b/hip-hop songs chart for 7 weeks, her biggest hit on that chart at the time.

    A self-motivating anthem for the ages! This song was HUGE!!! It equalled to about 7-8 more months of me hearing non-stop T.I. on the radio following Whatever You Like (which I got really sick of! That's why it did not make my list. I have learned to love it again though after not listening to it for a few YEARS!)  T.I. was one of  the biggest rappers in music before he went to jail. What a shame.

    It's Rihanna with one of her most catchy tunes!!!  I know if I listen to it I will become momentarily addicted to it all over again.  So sometimes, I try to resist the urge, less it be stuck in my head for days.

     Danity Kane was about to EXPLODE when Damaged came out!!! Diddy broke them up though.  Too bad, there 2nd album, Welcome to the Dollhouse, had debuted at # 1 on the Billboard 200 and Damaged became there biggest hit, becoming there 1st single released internationally, where it did well in several markets, and peaked at # 10 on the Hot 100. What a shame.

    I can remember this song being on the radio while driving to a football game and everybody in the car just progressively singing So Keep Your Love Lockdown, Your Love Lock -Down louder and louder each time Kanye repeated it in the chorus, until we were all screaming at the top of our lungs!! Good Times...
