I recently Â hit up Tyrese’s private listening party. Tyrese has been in the studio Â for the pass few months working on his new album which is going to be, I think, one of the biggest R&B albums of the year. And to me, I think he’s going to feel that role for the for all the ladies that Trey Songz has been dominating for these last years. Quickly grabbing back all his females fans and letting them know he still has it.
During his private listening session, he talked about how when he put out his first album, he was only 16 and didn’t know anything about the music that he was singing. And how Usher, who came out at the same time, dominated the younger audience, while he dominated the older crowd. He wanted the younger crowd, but the record label took control of his career. It was a really interesting conversation and it made me look differently at Tyrese as an artist.
He then started playing the new album, Open Invitation. The album is really one of those albums that you can dance to at the club and then go home and have you some good nasty (if your an adult). I have to say I liked almost every song on the album and it’s definitely something worth buying and not downloading for free. He picked every song on his album, so you know its gonna be hot.
P.S. to all you Brandy Fans, there is a duet on the album which probably be the wedding song everybody uses for the next five years.
BTW – I think Tyrese has some of the wildest fans I’ve seen.
Tyrese just filmed his new video with Taraji P. Henson. Check it out: READ MORE
The lovely Brandy Norwood came through to perform at Atlanta Pride at Traxx Night Club. My girl did a medley of songs, including “What About Us” and “Right Here Waiting” and had fans screaming and singing along to every song. After showing up late, she apologized to fans who waited for 2 hour and a half. She later performed Almost Doesn’t Count acapella and killed it.
Much love to Brandy for coming out and showing ATL some love. She recently signed a new contract with RCA/Chameleon Records and will be working with Chris Brown, Frank Ocean and Rico Love (click here for more details).
Shoutout to Traxx Girls – They did it big this year. Nivea also came through to show the crowd some love.

“Motivation, recently sat down with Rap-Up.com saying, “I’m excited about the records I’ve done with her so far. I think we need to make it classic, just the music that people love. There’s no real formula to ut, I just believe in a strong melody and a strong concept. You add a great singer, especially a singer that has had the success that Brandy’s had, and a hit song is a no-brainer.”
Seems my girl Vivica A. Fox was feeling a bit of fatigue/jetlag from that flight to Johannesburg, South Africa last night and she let the locals feel it! It appears that the actress, who was asked on stage with Regina King, Brandy and South African Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula (who also invited the actresses to the country) to take pictures, didn’t like the fact that the MC had also invited actresses Matheba and Sonia Sedibe of soap opera Generations on stage. When two more South African celebrities got on the stage, Fox freaked out! READ MORE
