Once again its on...
This song was supposed to be a single off of Jojo's 3rd album, but I do not think it was ever released digitally. In this video, she performs it live on a blog, That Grape Juice. Her deep notes in this are ridiculous!!!
Jojo first rose to fame back in 2004, when her 1st single- Leave (Get Out) rocketed to #1 on Billboard's Pop Songs Chart, making her the youngest solo artist to have a #1 in history (she was 13 at the time). After the success of her 1st album, she released her 2nd album, The High Road, which produced her biggest hit to date, Too Little Too Late (#3 Hot 100), and was certified Gold. During interviews back then Jojo said she would put off making a 3rd album until she had finished High School. Her 3rd album has been pushed back for years now, because she has had some legal issues with her label. This has not stopped Jojo from performing, giving fans web exclusives, and releasing a few mixtapes to hold them over until she has finished with all of the madness. Its quite a shame because Jojo has one of the sickest voices I have heard in a looooooooonnnnggg time! She has really spent some time developing it while away.

Ciara is not the only one making things hot this week. Alicia Keys and Maxwell are making it so hot, they have started a fire, apparently. Check out this tune. I love it.
I posted the behind the scenes already. Now, the video is here. Miguel enlist Kendrick Lamar for a remix of How Many Drinks? When I bought this album, I didn't care for this song too much, but since its been on the radio, its starting to grow on me.

There has been plenty of great R&B music getting very little recognition lately. Me no likey. I decided to post a bunch of this music. I just posted another song titled Best of Me, but it was by Anthony Hamilton. This is from Tyrese. Tyrese is getting love from all the ladies. I posted the video with Chilli, now he is with Eva Pigford in this one.

I was looking at videos on youtube and this one came up on my sidebar. It says its from the new Wizard of Oz movie. I guess it is out in theathers now. I remember reading about it a few weeks ago, but I did not know it was coming out so soon. I thought it said it was still in production. I am always late on everything, though. I wonder if this is the one I was reading about. It said Mila Kunis was in it. If anybody reads this and knows, maybe they can tell me. I never know anything about movies. Anyway, Mariah Carey's voice sounds so different in this song.
Fantasia is releasing her 4th studio album, Side Effects of You, Tuesday (4/23/13). She recently released the audio for the album's 2nd single, a song called Without Me. Fantasia is accompanied by the Collab Queen herself, Kelly Rowland and Missy Elliot who has been making a comeback after a long break on the music scene. Check the beat.

There has been plenty of great R&B music getting very little recognition lately. Me no likey. I decided to post a bunch of this music.This video has been out since last year, but I did not know. I thought this song was just released recently. Anyway, Tyrese released his latest album, Open Invitation, independently. (sidenote: I believe Tamia released her album independently as well, see Just Vids: Tamia- Beautiful Surprise). This song is from that album. The video features Chili!!! (of TLC)!

There has been plenty of great R&B music getting very little recognition lately. Me no likey. I decided to post a bunch of this music. Check out Tamia showcasing her beautiful voice, which is no surprise to many. It is because this is the 1st single off of her 5th album, Beautiful Surprise. We have known she could rip the stage for years now.

Dawn Richard performs one of my favorite songs off of her album, Goldenheart. Its called Frequency.
A video of Dawn Richard randomly singing in what appears to be a living room of a house... I just found this video on youtube and I liked her performance on it, so decided to post it. The video doesn't describe when this took place. Check it out.
Dawn gets alot of comparisons to Brandy for her vocals. I agree. She has a similar technique and odd tone like Brandy. I think she models her runs after Brandy. This is a good thing! Of course I love anyone who can even remotely remind me of Brandy...If you watch this video I think you will agree too. Here is Dawn practice the song 86 before a performance. She just has a beautiful voice...
Dawn Richard first came into the spotlight on MTV's reality show Making The Band, where she was chosen to be one-fifth of the girl group Danity Kane. After 2 platinum albums, Diddy disbanded the group, and Dawn was gone for a little while but formed a new group with Diddy and a second vocalist. They released a critically acclaimed album, Last Train to Paris. Sales weren't terrible, but still they weren't what Diddy expected, and the group disbanded. Dawn was shelved and would have more than likely had to wait years before releasing a solo project. Instead of waiting, Richard decided to split from Bad Boy and Diddy, to embark on a solo career independently. She released her 1st mixtape, The Prelude to A Tell Tale Heart, and then the EP, Armor On in 2012. It managed to chart on the Billboard 200 albums chart. At the top of the year she released her full-length album, Goldenheart, which also debuted on the Billboard 200, charting higher than Armor On. Richard says that Goldenheart is set to be the 1st album in a trilogy. The others will be titled Blackheart followed by RedemptionHeart. Dawn Richard's music videos are very theatric and creative, her music is nice and mellow and her vocals are always on point.

While I am talking about R&B Divas, I of course have to post their music. These ladies are in the fight to bring back good old R&B. You know you need some r&b in your life. If it goes away, what are you going to get married to? Bandz a Make Her Dance??? No, its going to be something like this...You and I. Avant and Keke Wyatt make beautiful music together. This is their third duet. I can't even explain the runs Keke does in this song! I really just want to throw something everytime I hear them, but I contain myself.

Which is what I want to cry when I hear that part when she goes,"Ooooh-Hoooo, Oooooh-Hoooooo,OoooHoooOooohHoooAoooohooo! I just wanna sing for ya bay!" (Church!)
