BET Awards 2015: The Nominees

It’s that time of year again or the BET Awards. I remember when I was in middle school I would be excited to watch the show. Now it’s just gotten to be too generic, the winners are too predictable and there’s nothing really special about the performances. It’s amazing that the show has lasted 14 years. Maybe next year they’ll do something special for the 15th annual. Check out my 2014 performance review here.

Original v. Cover [V.9]: Christmas Classics

Three of my favorite Christmas songs were covered this year: ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ (Band Aid), ‘All I Want for Christmas’ (Mariah Carey), and ‘War Is Over’ (John Lennon). I love comparing the original to the cover because I love to see how artist put their touch on classics.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRIGGA TREY!

1417225298732-1One of my FAVORITE singers has turned 30 today, TREY SONGZ! Out of all the celebs that have turned 30 it seems like it’s taken him forever to turn 30 (lol). Trey came on the scene in 2005 with his braids and wife beater in ‘Gotta Make It’ off his debut album I Gotta Make ItFrom the first time I heard the song I was in love (insert emoji with heart eyes) and have been fan ever since. Since then he has released five other albums and is getting ready to embark on a tour with Chris Brown, “Between The Sheets” (CLICK HERE for full details on that). Yes, expect his shirt to be off by at least the third or fourth song.

In ranking Trey Songz’ albums, my favorites are:

  1. Ready
  2. Trey Day
  3. I Gotta Make It
  4. Passion, Pain, & Pleasure
  5. Chapter V
  6. Trigga

HAPPY HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY TRIGGA! Listen to my favorite of his below:

NEW MUSIC: Chris Brown x Trey Songz

christreyVirgina boys, Chris Brown and Trey Songz hinted at a tour via Instgram and for those that thought it was rumor this tour could very well be happening with their remixes to four new tracks. First off, how great would it be to see these two on stage?! I’m very interested. They have released remixes to: Schoolboy Q‘s, ‘Studio’; TeeFLii‘s, ’24 Hours’ILoveMakonnen‘s, ‘Tuesday’; and Snootie Wild‘s, ‘Made Me’.

No surprise that the lyrics are very sexual as it’s all that these two sing/occasionally rap about. Out of the four my fav is ‘Tuesday’. Listen to all four below (via Soundlcoud):

Video Review: Trey Songz, ‘What’s Best For You’

Trey Songz is back with another visual from his album Trigga for his new single, ‘What’s Best For You’. This is definitely a continuation from his video ‘Smartphones’ (CLICK HERE for that video review). The concept still zones in on the fact that he hasn’t been able to settle down with just one girl, but this time around instead of multiple females he was in two relationships. One relationship featured the girl from ‘Smartphones’ and then he was in a relationship with another girl. He would have then simultaneously in his bed and taking them on dates to the same location. Throughout it all he wants ‘what’s best’ for the girls and that clearly isn’t him. At least he’s sweet enough to not lead them on. The video ends off with the girls leaving and he ends up alone. The video overall for me was alright. I would personally love to see one for’ ‘Y.A.S.’

Sia Tops the Billboard 200

sia-1000-forms-of-fear-2I recently posted my album review of Sia‘s latest album, 1000 Forms of Fear, and it has topped the Billboard 200. With a mere 52,000 copies sold it seems to have done the job of getting Sia her first number one album on the chart.

Frozen has surged back up the charts from #5 to #2 with 46,000 copies sold. Sam Smith’s, In The Lonely Hour, holds tight at #3 with an additional 42,000 copies sold. Dropping from #2 to #4 is Ed Sheeran’s, X, which sold an additional 35,000 copies in its third week. Last weeks chart topper, Trey Songz has fallen four spots to #5 with his latest album, Trigga selling only 34,000 copies.

Judas Priest debuts with their highest mark on the chart coming in at #6 with their latest album, Redeemer of Souls, worth 33,000 copies sold. Now 50 rises from #11 to #7 while Miranda Lamberts, Platinum, falls from #7 to #9. Dirty Heads, Sounds of Change, comes in at #8 and rounding of the top 10 is Lana Del Rey’s, Ultraviolence.

magic-rudeMagic!’s album, Don’t Kill The Magic, debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200 last week and although it’s fallen out of the top 10 their smash, ‘Rude’ has knocked Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ out of the top spot; a spot she had been holding for eight weeks. Iggy doesn’t fall much as she only drops to #2. Ariana Grande’s in at #3 with ‘Problem’, Nico & VInz come in at #4 with ‘Am I Wrong’, and in at #5 is Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’
