Quick Break

Hey Everyone,
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, life has gotten the best of me. I’m deciding to take a short break to focus on school a little more as things are heating up right now. I’ll post my thoughts on the Grammy’s either today or tomorrow, and I’ll being doing small posts here and there, but for the moment I’m going to cool things down.
I love this blog, but there are bigger things I need to focus on right now. This is not at all a goodbye, just a quick note. Make sure to keep stopping by though, every few days I’ll be posting something up. Thanks for all the love and support everyone. I really appreciate that people even want to hear what I have to say.
I’ll be back soon!

2010 Year End: Top 20 Albums

We’re living in an era where many claim that the album is dead and artists are now shifting their focus to singles. I would beg to differ especially with some of the albums that have come out this year.

This year showed artists who grew both lyrically and musically, as many tried to display the notion that albums are dead. I will say that I felt the strongest about the Rap albums that Continue reading

2010 Year End: R&B Song

As this year comes to a close I wanted to gather up a list of my favorite songs and albums of the year as a whole. On the 31st I’ll release my top 10 song and album list for the year, but until then I’ll compile other year end charts to hold you over.

If you read the blog regularly then you know I’m an avid lover of R&B, so naturally I would compile a list of the Best R&B songs of the year.

Overall 2010 was actually a slow year R&B Continue reading

How Much?: Justin Bieber

Today marks the release of Justin Bieber’s new album ‘My World Acoustic’. The album takes hits from his first two albums, and adds a new song to the mix. The album is only in stores, which is a nice challenge to the digital shift in music sales.

Whether you want to admit it or not, Justin Bieber is one of the biggest pop stars out right now. This can mainly be attributed to the massive following of pre-teens who follow him. After winning 4 AMA’s beating the likes of Lady Gaga, and having one of the biggest selling albums of the year, I hate to admit that Bieber is a force to be reckoned with.

How Much?: Rihanna

The second segment of ‘How Much?’ goes to Rihanna. With the release of her fifth album ‘LOUD’ this week (read my review here), one would wonder how much she is going to sell her first week.

You all did pretty well with the Kid Cudi predictions last week, with the majority of voters being correct. He sold a total of 169,000 copies. So lets see how everyone fares this week.

Early reports show that she will not be able to get the number 1 spot next week, which means that Rihanna will be five albums into her career and not have any of them hit number 1 on the Billboard 200. While I am upset by this I’m Continue reading

Mixtape Premiere: ‘The Tryout’

After weeks of teasing his fans Tarik is finally releasing his first mixtape ‘The Tryout’. After releasing 4 singles exclusively to Kick the Eardrum, Tarik has decided to release the whole mixtape through the blog which I am very grateful for.

I love the fact that Tarik does not curse in his music. Honestly, cursing in rap is overrated and is an easy way to avoid creativity. Tarik channels his creativity into heartfelt Continue reading

Poll: Favorite Song

These past three weeks have been full of new songs. With impending albums from Kanye, Nicki, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Nelly and more, each artist seems to be putting their best foot forward to insure strong album sales. With all of the new releases I was wondering which song was most popular with other listeners. With release from both new and old artist, this holiday season is one of the best in recent memory.

The poll below has a few of the song that have just been released, but if you think there should be another included let me know. Feel free to comment on the songs that you love and hate below in the comment section:

Single Premiere: ‘Hands To The Ceiling’- Tarik

After the overwhelmingly positive response of his first single ‘Bad Timing’, Tarik is releasing his second single less than a week later. ‘Hand To The Ceiling’ is a certified smash in every sense. From the ridiculous beat to the lyrical performance, the song delivers strongly. This could easy be the song to thrust Tarik from a mixtape artist.

Out of the preview I hear, this was one of the strongest track on the tape, so I am more than pleased premiere the single here first! Fill out the poll below on the song and give your feed back below: Continue reading
