Jill Scott’s 'Woman' Is A Triumph For R&B

8/4/2015 8:47am EDT
Jill Scott Makes It Two Consecutive No. 1 Albums On Billboard
R&B has triumphed atop the Billboard 200 for the second time this year! Is it a total change of pace for commercially ailing genre? Jill Scott follows her first #1 album, 2011’s Light Of The Sun with a second one with Woman. Woman didn’t match the higher-flying sales of Light Of The Sun, but Scott’s first album in four years certainly has performed better than most of her contemporaries’ R&B efforts. 62,000 units is by no means “the second coming,” but it’s respectable considering the number of albums that have tanked this year (yeah you Jamie Foxx and Ciara).

Jill Scott wasn’t the sol...

10 Incredibly Heartfelt Songs of 2014
In an age dominated by big records, there’s nothing like a truly captivating, heartfelt song. That’s not to say that a record can’t be a song or visa versa, but these days, the two aren’t necessarily interchangeable.

But to keep the list from being forever long, here are 10 of the most heartfelt songs of 2014.

Ed Sheeran’s Excellent Chart Numbers: This Week in Music
Ed Sheeran should be beaming "ear to ear." Why? According to billboard.com, Sheeran moved 210,000 copies of his sophomore album, X (pronounced 'multiply'). That’s a healthy sum, particularly given the new normal that is album sales. With 210,000 copies sold, the takeaway for the British singer/songwriter is that he truly has a shot – at gold and maybe platinum.

Sheeran wasn’t the only artist experiencing a 'come up.' Rapper G-Eazy took his cocky and confident These Things Happen to #3. The 46,000 copies isn’t exactly 'the second coming,' but it's not too shabby either. Compared to ot...

British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran's profile has risen tremendously over the past couple of years. While 2011 debut album + didn't blow the charts away when it bowed, the album received a lift from his Grammy-nominated hit, "The A Team", a memorable and meaningful song by all means. Sophomore album X ("multiply") elevates Sheeran's stardom, delivering a captivating pop album.

"One" and "I'm A Mess" open X more minimal-minded, embracing Sheeran’s acoustic-pop and folksy side. "One" is the more understated track, pacing itself until the second verse adds ...

You Won't Believe What Ed Sheeran Just Said About Taylor Swift!
Taylor Swift may only be 24-years-old, but she tends to act a bit more mature than that, according to former tour-mate Ed Sheeran.

Sheeran might not have meant any ill will with his comment, but it certainly didn't sound good when he basically referred to the Pennsylvania native as a crazy cat lady!

“I know she’s 24 but she’s a sort of middle-aged woman trapped in a 24-year-old’s body," he told Time magazine in a recent interview.

Ouch!

That wasn't all, he also painted her out to be pretty boring as well.

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!
