Brandy just released her track Put It Down featuring Chris Brown. There’s been strong debates on Twitter since Brandy’s Behind The Music last night about her current music career.
I can see how Brandy is following trends with this new track, but it isn’t too bad as some R&B artists’ music has currently been. I like the beat, not the lyrics so much, but I definitely think I like it more than It All Belongs To Me. Just a little. Or maybe I wouldn’t even put them in the same category.
With the addition of Chris Brown and the uptempo beat, I’m sure the track will do well on the charts. One can only hope. What do you all think? Listen to the track after the jump.
Tuesday night, Rihanna appeared at the Time 100 Gala after being honored as one of the World’s Most Influential People. She also performed an acoustic version of We Found Love for the festivities, and didn’t sound half bad. The crowd wasn’t stomping on their feet and no one cried, but I’m just happy to see she kept her tone as well as she could and gave the song a little spirit.

Usher gives us another track, Scream, from his upcoming album, Looking For Myself, which hits stores on June 12th. This new track apparently goes back to the dance sounds Usher has tried before with his recent music, making fans frown and discouraged from buying the album.
I can’t give a good review on the track since my speakers on my Mac aren’t letting me be great (they better not have broke cuz I”ll be pissed.) Take a listen to the track after the jump and post your thoughts.
Rihanna surprised fans with a special behind the scenes look at the journey it took to create her latest album Talk That Talk.
The video begins with Rihanna on her tour bus after her sold out concert at the Target Center on June 16, 2011 in Minneapolis, MN. The video then takes us on the last North American leg of her LOUD tour in Boston, MA on July 24th, 2011. Viewers got a look at the events that took place before the concert like pranks that take place among the cast and crew. I can’t believe they actually performed pranks while the concert was taking place, like a pillow fight during S&M and female “rude boys” during Rude Boy.
Later in the video we get a look at Rihanna back in Barbados visiting her mother and family. I know it must be hard for her not only to travel the world but to live in America being constantly away from her family. I particularly loved the part where Rihanna’s babysit said she was a “rude” child. I see that quality hasn’t died.
This video is a great promotional tactic for Rihanna. I love when celebrities let you get a little peek into their personal lives. It makes them human and you develop sympathy and a connection with them. It makes me want to buy the album.

The rumors of the Tupac Hologram that shocked viewers during the Coachella Music Festival 2012 last week going on tour have finally been put to rest by Dr. Dre. Dre was the originator behind the idea of the Tupac Hologram created by Digital Domain and AV Concepts.
“It was strictly for Coachella. Get it right. I want to get rid of all the rumors out there. This was not done for a tour. If a tour happens, we’ll see.”
And the world takes a collective sigh of relief.
Check out the video of the behind the scenes interview of Dre. Would you have gone to a Tupac Hologram tour?
I knew this girl wasn’t going to stay away from Twitter for too long.
Yesterday, Nicki Minaj rejoined Twitter and currently possesses almost 2 million followers, which is nothing compared to the 11 million people she left behind a week ago.
In an interview with Capital FM, Nicki denied deleting her Twitter due to her fan site, Nicki Daily, “leaking” her music. This claim was something everyone was believing, and was even in the post I did on Nicki deleting her Twitter after speaking with one of her Barbz. But, that doesn’t mean that tantrum she threw that day won’t be remembered.
“It was just funny before my album came out– I followed their Twitter page and I saw them tweeting away exclusive leaks off my album,” she said. “And I’m like well if you made a fan page, I would imagine that you actually are my fan and you care about me and you wouldn’t wanna do something like that. So, I just unfollowed them. I didn’t say anything mean, I just unfollowed them. Then low and behold I saw that they were rallying people against me and saying ‘she unfollowed us. how mean is she?’”
However, that wasn’t actually the reason she chose to delete her Twitter. Instead, she just needed some space. “I’m like– Lets set the record straight because a lot of times I don’t speak on things but I don’t want people to think that’s why I deleted my Twitter,” said Nicki. “I just needed a moment to myself. Because some page posted things about me– I mean, I’ve read horrible things about myself. I wouldn’t delete my Twitter over that. ”

Well, thank you, Nicki, for clearing that all up, but I’m sure fans won’t be too forgiving any time soon. How do you feel about this whole debacle. I refollowed Nicki, but have you? And check out the interview of Nicki with Capital FM after the jump.
