Check Out J. Holiday's First Single, 'Bed,' From New CD 'Back Of My Lac,' Due October 2

July 2nd, 2007 1:24pm EDT
J. Holiday
Capitol Records' new R&B crooner J. Holiday debuts his first single, Bed, from his forthcoming album Back of My Lac, due in stores October 2. Bed was written by The Dream and Tricky Stewart, the pair responsible for Rihanna's Umbrella.

There are no mirrors or tricks here, no sleight of hand. When J. Holiday talks earnestly of "following my dreams" and "being in love with music," it's not a deliberately sympathetic portrayal by a partial writer. In fact, J.'s talent is matched –in rarity and intensity—only by his enthusiasm. His candor and vulnerability are refreshing, given the static,...

Bobby Valentino
Bobby Valentino's debut release, the self titled, Disturbing Tha Peace Presents Bobby Valentino, on DTP/Island Def Jam Records is a testament to young adult relationships from a man's point of view.

Bobby's first single, "Slow Down," proved to be a wise choice for his foray as an adult vocalist, reaching #1 on the Billboard charts and receiving numerous nominations for Best R & B sin...

Check Out Capitol Records New R&B Artist J. Holiday's Debut Single "Be With Me"

January 8th, 2007 3:49pm EST
J. Holiday
"My sound is old school soul with a little mix of hip-hop," explains J. Holiday. "If I had to give it a name I would call it 'street soul.' Nowadays the 'hood has little to listen to within R&B. I want my music to be the soundtrack to their lives and beyond."

J. Holiday doesn't pull any punches when he offers his take on the current state of R&B. "Rhythm and Blues is lacking storytellers right now," insists the candid 22-year-old singer/songwriter. Holiday then pauses, name checks the late legendary singer Otis Redding as if to show his soul credentials and asks, "Where's our generatio...

Brian McKnight Returns With "Ten," In Stores Dec. 5

October 29th, 2006 10:30am EST
Brian McKnight
Embracing an effortless eloquence and cocoa butter smooth persona, the music of Brian McKnight has defined the true meaning of American soul man since 1991. Like his spiritual Motown godfathers, this upstate New York native has a velvety voice and silky style that captures the vibe of vintage soul without being old fashion. On his latest disc Ten, that blend can be clearly heard.

"It's always been my goal to try and bring back real R&B music," Brian says. "When I was growing-up it was all about the seventies soul men. From the first time I ever stepped into a studio, my daydream was to...

October 9th, 2006 1:29pm EDT
Diddy
Hip hop mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs is set to shock the music industry after admitting he didn't write most of his past albums. Despite having worked with hip hop and R&B's biggest stars as a producer, including Mary J. Blige, Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey and TLC, Combs admits he sought help when creating his solo discs No Way Out, Forever and The Saga Continues.

However, that all changed this year when Combs wrote his long-awaited disc "Press Play." He explains, "On a lot of the other records, to be honest, I didn't do a whole lot of writing. On this one, I did a lot."

Jamie Foxx Is Glad His Early Music Efforts Weren't Successful

April 7th, 2006 2:09pm EDT
Jamie Foxx
Actor Jamie Foxx is delighted his first attempt at launching himself as a musician flopped because he would never have gone on to win an Oscar if his singing career had taken off. The star won the 2005 Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of the late music legend Ray Charles - but he is convinced he would have missed out on the honor if 1994's "Peep This" album had sold well.

He says, "I always wanted to sing, but I'm glad I didn't get the music career early because you never would have known me if I had. I probably would have done the Boyz II Men thing, singing slow songs and w...
