Tyrese Lands His First No. 1 Album

7/20/2015 8:34am EDT
Tyrese Takes 'Black Rose' To The Top Of The Billboard 200
Sigh, yet another musician has seen his dreams realized on the Billboard 200. Although pure sales and lucrative chart longevity have only been kind to some, a number of artists have landed their first number one album this year. Add Tyrese to the list, as Black Rose earns the Billboard 200 crown this week. The 81,000 units isn’t the sexiest total ever, but, for an R&B album, that’s great. Why? – Because R&B has struggled with commercial lucrativeness all year and Black Rose gives the genre its highest impact and first number one album in 2015. Sweetening things more is that most of the...

25 Best Songs Of 2015 (So Far)
Ah, the time has come to examine the best songs of 2015. In an age where records dominate as opposed to the albums themselves, there is always an abundance of terrific songs to choose from. But when it’s all said and done, one or more of those terrific songs is always going to get left off, no matter how long the list is, so if your favorite isn’t here, that might be the reason why. So here goes nothing – 25 of the best songs of 2015… so far! And by the way, if a song appears from 2014, it is because it blew up in 2015 or its parent album is from 2015.

5th Album Is A Charm For Breaking Benjamin

Breaking Benjamin Becomes The Latest Musicians To Score First No
2015 must be the year of chart dreams realized – at least for some artists. Not everybody can boast of the chart glory (looking at you Ciara). For Breaking Benjamin, a band on their fifth album, reaching the penthouse on the Billboard 200 had eluded them four times before. Finally, the fifth time proved to be charm and Dark Before Dawn earned the band their first #1 album. The numbers are rock solid, as Dark Before Dawn shows no darkness whatsoever with 141,000 units, most of which were album sales. BB is certainly doing its thing – kudos boys, kudos.

Being the jam-packed week it was...

How Good Is Miguel's 'Wildheart'?

6/29/2015 9:59am EDT
Review: Miguel Delivers A Homerun On 'Wildheart'
In recent times, it seems that R&B needs an IV – intravenous fluids. 2015 hasn’t been very respectable from a commercial standpoint and in some regards critically for a once fiery genre. Miguel seeks to change the perceptions of R&B on his highly anticipated third album Wildheart, which follows his Grammy-winning sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream (Best R&B song for “Adorn”). Miguel’s eclectic brand of R&B – contemporary, alternative, dashes of rock and pop – makes Wildheart and album no one should sleep on.

Wildheart commences with “A Beautiful Exit,” a sound record showcasing pop sensi...

25 Most Underrated Songs Of 2015 (So Far)
Not every record ends up being a hit. In fact if you think about it, only a select few songs end up with the distinction of hit status. The songs featured on this list are terrific, but none of them have been profound in the commercial department. Arguably, the best way to describe these songs are ‘underrated’ – they are the ‘unsung heroes’ of the year as well as their artist’s respective album. All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.

20 Food Songs That Aren’t About Eating
Everybody likes to eat – any disagreement with that nutritional statement? Because everyone enjoys filling their bellies, it’s not surprising that musician reference food in their songs as well as specifically in their song titles.

Ranking favorites from throughout the year is one of the most time-consuming and arduous things to do.  All of the rap songs on this particular list of rap songs from 2013 all stood out to me in some regard.  Are they ordered correctly – most likely not.  Is there complete analysis of each provided below or even a sound reason why they were selected… um…well now… Basically, provided is a statement of a thought, a reaction, or possibly a reason why I though each song was special.

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

12/9/2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

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...

R&B singer Miguel somehow avoided seriously injuring at least one fan at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, when a leap of faith went awry.

While on stage performing his hit "Adorn," the singer attempted to jump over members of the crowd to another part of the stage, but botched the landing.

Miguel barely made it across the opening in the stage and ended up kicking one woman in the head and crushing another woman's face between his legs and the stage. Fortunately neither of the women were injured in what looked like one of them could have ended up with a broken neck.

Swift was against fun. and Maroon 5 for most of the night, each earning 11 nominations. However, as Swift began to win one award after the other, it was clear she would almost sweep the competition.

Swift had already won six awards before the telecast - Billboard gives out accolades beforehand to shorten the show. She then went on to take Artist of the Year and Top Female Artist.
