25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

December 27th, 2013 6:30pm EST
Beyonce
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

Bad Boy

In a world where R&B and soul music have cooled off consid...

12 Songs For Lovers – A Soundtrack That Will Boost Any Relationship

October 26th, 2013 4:00pm EDT
Janelle featuring Miguel primetime
Love songs can be so touching and certainly can propel any relationship (and in some cases hookups).  I have constructed a list of 12 ‘love’ songs that have the emotional and physical connection between lovers in mind… or something like that!  I attempted to make some narrative, but like most soundtracks, they’re all over the place anyways!

Track 1

Raheem DeVaughn, “Complicated”

(A Place Called Love Land)

As we know, no one relationship is ‘cut and dry’ by any means; all are their own diverse entity.  Among Raheem DeVaughn’s best tracks on his underrated indie-R&B album A Place Called L...

2013 Chart Trends: Top 5 Over & Underachievers

September 16th, 2013 8:00pm EDT
Tamar Braxton : Love & War
“You win some and you lose some.” At least, that’s what they say.  That’s the case with numerous albums in 2013.  I have chosen five albums that exceeded sales expectations and five albums that fell short of expectations.  Let’s see who made my list…

The Overachievers 

Honorable Mention(s): Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience (no. 1 bow, 968,000 copies sold it’s first week);  Ariana Grande, Yours Truly (no. 1 debut with 138,000 copies sold)

5.

Tamar Braxton, Love & War

Epic

Selling R&B is a test in itself.  If you’d told me Toni Braxton’s little sis would move six figu...

Will R&B Ever Recover From Sales Inconsistencies?

September 10th, 2013 7:30pm EDT
John Legend
On Tuesday, September 3, 2013, I felt reassured about the output of R&B music.  As perused the CD aisle at the local Best Buy, I felt excited to see the majority of new releases were R&B (Neko Case and Nine Inch Nails among exemptions).  That observation should be shocking in itself.  This included established artists like John Legend, Jaheim, and Raheem DeVaughn, as well as rising artists in Tamar Braxton (a ‘reintroduction’ you might say) and Ariana Grande (a pop/R&B blend).  From my perspective, being an R&B lover who’s at his best singing along with a slow jam, I was happy to see such a...

Review: Tamar Braxton, 'Love and War' - Braxton Impresses (Vocally) While Some Material Underwhelms

September 10th, 2013 9:56am EDT
Tamar Braxton 'Love and War'
Apparently there is room for more than one Braxton. Yep. Tamar Braxton, the younger sister of multiplatinum R&B singer Toni Braxton is living up her moment in the spotlight.  Tamar  previously released a solo album, Tamar, but that was way back in 2000.  Now 13 years later, Braxton returns with the biggest solo hit of her career (“Love and War”) and an album poised to make a much larger wave than Tamar ever could.  Love and War accomplishes what it is supposed to; it introduces (or reintroduces) Tamar Braxton as a worthwhile R&B artist in her own right. Is it impressive? I wouldn’t call it ...

Fashion Fails: I Failed The Flower Girl

Kesha
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Here we have Ke$ha, who has made a presence in the fail category of fashion for some time. The flowers here can't cover up everything, like the overly-bronze leggings. there's also the draped ropesall over the place and the too-small panties and corset.

Sevyn Streeter either signed with a jeans company or failed to realize the fashion faux-pas of wearing all denim. 

Tamar Braxton bought the last supply of shoulderpads from...

December 6th, 2012 1:30pm EST
LaShawn and April
There's a lot more to life on a reality show than just what's on camera. Just ask LaShawn and April Daniels, who co-star in the WE TV series Tamar & Vince. They're seen on TV every Thursday alongside titular stars Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert, while trying to manage their own growing careers in the music and fashion industries. Digital Airwaves recently sat down with LaShawn and April to discuss what it's really like to have your life televised and what the cameras might be missing.

Their involvement with Tamar & Vince began "simply just being Tamar and Vince's friends," explained Apr...
