What a way to top of ATL Live Park Tavern first annual show. ATL Live on Park Tavern started a year ago by music industry veteran Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols who were both on a quest to bring classic R&B music back to Atlanta, an element we were definitely missing in this day and age. So every second Tuesday of the month Shanti put together showcases that gave new artists that were signed to record labels a platform to display their musical craft. At the end of the showcase there would always be a headliner that paved the way to the artist of our future.

On tonights roster were emerging JIVE Records acts Jawan Harris and Big Heed & Alien, Fonzworth Bentley and R&B veteran group NEXT. Needless to say the line up was amazing, bringing the crowd an variety array musical selection. I have to say I was definitely impressed with Fonzworth’s performance, he is definitely an entertainer and strives to give his audiences quality performances.

But you know I have to be bias because finally the homies from “NEXT” definitely went hard. Don’ t get it twisted they maybe veterans in the game but nothing about them speaks Vet. From the dance routines, constant high powered energy, quality vocal arrangements, and physical appearance (NoHomo) but the brothers are doing their thing making me wanna get my lazy self in the gym so I can get some of their groupies. Great performance my dudes and we will definitely be on the lookout for the upcoming album from NEXT once it’s complete.

Lauryn Hill Pregnant Again!?!?!

Lauryn Hill has is back…… or so we thought. After years of flying under the radar Ms. Hill is  back in the spotlight and showing the world what real music is. Just recently she killed a performance at the Coachella festival. We may have to put that excitement on hold, at least for 9 months plus 6 weeks of maternity leave. LOL  If the rumors are true Lauryn is knocked up AGAIN with her sixth child.

Speculation began last month in Los Angeles when she hinted that she could be pregnant, joking calling herself the “most fertile mother in America,” before singing her hit record dedication to her first son, “Zion.” Just this past weekend at a performance at the Jazz & Heritage Festival in New Orleans, Lauryn rocked a baggy dress making folks question if the jokes and rumors are true.  She also told the crowd she’s holding onto a “big secret.”

The U.K.’s Office of Communications is upset over the music channel WTF TV’s decision to air an unedited version of the clip just before noon. According to “The Guardian,” the Office of Communications is now asking broadcasters to gather for an emergency meeting to discuss the “acceptability of material in music videos” that air prior to 9:00 p.m. Rihanna’s “S&M” video features several sexually suggestive images, but WTF TV has described the clip as “artistic and not dark or seedy.” The station did, however, admit that “in hindsight” the title of the song could be viewed as inappropriate by some.
“S&M” is featured on Rihanna’s latest album, “Loud.” The track dropped back in January and has hit number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
