Panic! At The Disco Tops The Billboard 200 For The First Time
After being an active part of the music industry for a decade, Panic! At The Disco finally got over “That Hump” to quote Erykah Badu – scoring a number one album on the Billboard 200. That’s right; Death of A Bachelor earned Panic! At The Disco – specifically sole original member Brendon Urie – it's first career number one album. The numbers were impressive as Panic! At The Disco impacted to the tune of 190,000 units, with 89% of those units being pure sales.

Sure Urie is the only member left, but things seem to be looking up judging by the numbers and hits from the album. If you ask us, w...

How Does Tank's Album 'Sex, Love & Pain II' Stack Up

Tank Is Too Reliant On Trendiness On 'Sex Love & Pain II'
Following his tepidly selling, so-so 2014 album (Stronger), R&B singer/songwriter Durrell Babbs – best know as Tank – returns with Sex Love & Pain II, a follow-up to his Grammy-nominated original, Sex Love & Pain. A talented vocalist who’s penned songs for numerous artists, how does Tank’s latest effort measure up? Well…sometimes it’s great or, at least, respectable, while others it relies too much on trendiness and that god-awful thing known as conformity.

“SLP2” kicks things off lusciously, truly foreshadowing the pronounced role of sex on the album. Not a bad opener, it’s sophomore cut...

Eye Candy: 41 Sexiest Album Covers
Ah, is there anything that’s tastier than candy? While the answer to that question is debatable, few will argue about the power and beauty of the kind of candy that you DON’T eat, but rather view with the eyes. That ladies and gents is “eye candy” which taps into lustfulness, innuendo and unapologetic naughtiness among a variety of other characterizations. Eye candy has been around for years and we, as humans never seem to tire of its power. Its shock value keeps us talking and keeps our eyes glued considering we “can’t get enough.”

Music can be the ultimate “ear candy,” featuring the...

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...
