Chris Brown Is So-So At Best On 'Royalty'
Hmm…it’s difficult to find the right words to describe Chris Brown. Musically he seems to be stuck thematically on sex, cockiness, and hedonism. While sex fuels much of R&B, Brown’s cocky and hedonistic approach – particularly albums beginning with F.A.M.E. – often take away from his music. This was the case on Fortune and is the case on his seventh solo album, Royalty. So-so at best, Royalty shows it’s time for Brown to shake up the formula.

Perhaps the worst thing about Royalty is the fact that the cover art shows Brown holding his baby girl Royalty, yet the album fails to reflect such ...

10 Songs That Take Objectification Way Too Far
Admit it – we’ve all been guilty of oogling, aka checking somebody else out. Ah, the art of objectification – treating a person like they’re an ‘object of pleasure’ as opposed to a human with legitimate emotions, etc. Most often, it seems this occurs at the hand of men, though Jennifer Lopez proved on “I Luh You Papi” that guys can be objectified as well. Still, objectification can cross the line into unquestionable misogynistic territory, and the songs on this particular playlist definitely trend “left of center.” Here are 10 songs that take objectification way too far.

Will Fans Enjoy Jamie Foxx’s New Album?

Review: Jamie Foxx Keeps Things Sensual On ‘Hollywood’
How does one characterize Jamie Foxx? The best way to describe Foxx is as multitalented. He is one of few actors – an Academy Award winner by the way – who can convincingly play dramatic roles as well as comedic roles. Furthermore, Foxx is one of few actors who has nailed the ‘musician’ thing – he’s a classically trained pianist with golden pipes.

After a five-year hiatus between albums, Foxx returns with his most sensually driven lengthily titled album yet, Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses. Has the 47-year old Foxx lost his swag? Nope, not in the least – perhaps he overdoes the ‘sw...
