Now you know we don’t normally feature JoJo, but here’s a petty dope cover that the pop singer did to Drake’s new track Marvin’s Room. Now Marvin’s Room is aÂ laidbackÂ song focusing on a man’s drunken call to a former girlfriend, and Jojo does a great job of switching the gender roles on her cover. There’s also a lot of f***’s spread throughout the track, somewhat strange coming from the former teen pop star. Check out the track and tell me what y’all think about the cover. How does it compare to the Drake’s? Let me know in the comments!
My girl Kelly Rowland has been doing it big lately! Her single ‘Motivation’ is currently the number one urban song in the country, but you could probably guess that already with the fifty-leven remixes of it that are out. Well, here’s another one to add to the list, but people are saying that this could be the best remix of ‘Motivation’ yet. The Motivation (Urban Mix) features verses from Busta Rhymes, Trey Songz, and Fabolous, and I gotta say it’s HOT. Check it out!
Kelly has also been busy in the U.K. filming for the country’s version of The X-Factor.
In case you don’t know, The X-Factor is a competition show similar in style to American Idol, and there’s actually an American version premiering later this year. She was looking GOOD in Glasgow as she exited her hotel to go watch auditions from the many hopefuls wanting to earn a spot on the show.
So what y’all think about the Motivation (Urban Mix)? How about Kelly in England? Let me know! Read More »
Hot 100 princess Rihanna has released another video from her LOUD album. ‘Man Down’ is the fifth single to be released from the singer for this era, and this clip has a dark undertone in contrast to the generally light hearted videos Rihanna has put out for this album. The video includes her shooting a man, as the lyrics state, as well as the events leading up to that shooting.
While similar to her videos for her last studio album, Rated R, this clip is for lack of a better words, boring. A lot could have been done with such a visually based song but it seemed like this clip relied on Rihanna standing around and posing.
Basically, Rihanna’s gotta do better if she wants that reign not to let up y’all. LOL.
Excerpts from Rihanna’s interview with Cosmo Magazine have also surfaced, and they are… interesting. Get inside Rihanna’s head right here!
So it looks like Ms. Kelly has a bona fide hit on her hands with this one! After numerous false starts, the singer has edged closer to the stardom of her Destiny’s Child counterpart with Motivation, which has just reached the top of Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart. The slinky jam, which featured Lil Wayne, has also achieved this feat with very little promotion from Kelly herself, and despite only being released to Urban music formats.
Motivation is now Kelly’s best performing solo single to date, and should help get the ball rolling on her much-delayed ‘Here I Am’ LP, which is due later this year. You can do it Kelly! We believe in you baby! LOL
Y’all thought it was over with Eddie didn’t y’all? Well apparently, it might be soon. I just got breaking news that The Bishop of New Birth MissionaryÂ Baptist Church has reportedly reached an agreement with the four men who claimed that Long coerced them into sexual relationships.Â The troubled pastor could only reach the settlement after some mandatory court-ordered mediation sessions. But apparently he’s off the hook, if at least for now. We probably won’t know the details until gag orders are lifted in ten years and the tell-all books come out.
What are y’alls thoughts about Eddie’s settlement? Let me know in the comments!
It looks like Uncle Luke wants to add another title to his name, Mayor of Miami-Dade County. After former Miami mayor Carlos Alvarez was voted out of office in March, Uncle Luke has thrown himself in the ring of mayoral candidates. However, the former member of 2 Live Crew, real name Luther Campbell, will have to wait at least another year for that to happen. Luke finished in fourth place in Tuesday’s special elections, collecting a somewhat small 11 % of the vote. Read More »
So apparently Lil Wayne is making sure he hits all targets with this new album. A new single off his hotly anticipated “Tha Carter IV” album has leaked, and it’s a lot different from what y’all would expect from the 6 Foot 7 Foot rapper.
The banjo banger, produced by Detail, features the rapper singing over a slow ballad about the girl of his dreams. If you’re looking for another 6 Foot & Foot, then you gotta look somewhere else, but this actually works in an R&B meets Bluegrass meets Folk way.
Speaking of Weezy’s love, everybody and they momma’s out here wondering who is this girl that keeps appearing next to the rapper everywhere he goes these days.
According to Complex (with some twitter/facebook sleuthing), it turns out this chick is named Dhea and works at *waits for it* a sexy nightclub in Scottsdale, Arizona. The two have been pretty much inseparable lately, so I guess Lil Wayne might have finally settled down. LOL. Check out some more pics of the two and tell me what y’all think about the new single and new couple!
I recently got the chance to kick it with the homies Ali, Quez, and Strap and got some EXCLUSIVE info. They talked about the future of Travis Porter, including their plans for a late summer release of their album. Ali also told FreddyO.com exclusively that a mixtape with 9-10 songs could be out later this summer before that album drops. They have recorded thousands of songs that the public doesn’t even know about yet. The group also talked about their BET Awards nomination for Best Group. FreddyO.com is the ONLY site on the web with this news so be sure to check this video out!
