In 2001, R&B singer Aaliyah and eight others died in a horrible plane crash. 2001 saw the release of her last album, but it looks like there was one other track she did before her death. A track called Dancin by an artist known as ET Selfish features the deceased R&B singer singing the chorus. There hasn’t been any word on any other unreleased Aaliyah material, but the biopic is in the works and Keisha Chante has been confirmed for the part of Aaliyah in the 2011 biopic.

Dirtbag Debut : Khia – Been A Bad Girl

19 Apr

Fashion in the video = A+

Lyrics = F-

Thinking that people still like dirty rap = We still do, just can’t figure out what this is. “My Neck, My Back” was amazing Khia, this is kind of between being really average and just a disgrace to hip hop.

Overall grade = C-(Cmon guys, she tried)

New Ciara Album, Basic Instinct

19 Apr

When Ciara dropped Fantasy Ride last year, a lot of people were shocked to hear that she was already well into her next record. The self-proclaimed “princess of Crunk N B” started working with hit makers Tricky Stewart and The Dream in April of last year and the end result is her follow-up to Fantasy Ride titled Basic Instinct. The record is scheduled to be released in the summer and it’s already spawned a hit single. The provocative lead single, Ride is a throwback to Ciara’s earlier sound and according to a lot of the press surrounding this record; that’s what she was going for. Listen to the new single and see what you think. Fantasy Ride was alright, so who knows what will happen with this record.
