VIDEO: JANELLE MONAE – TIGHTROPE FT BIG BOI

I have come across articles featuring Janelle and seen her videos posted on numerous websites, but I’ve never bothered to read those articles or bothered to click on play. I just couldn’t be bothered! It can only be described as pure laziness. But that all changed today when I decided to listen to her new single Tightrobe. I am now kicking myself for not checking the singer out from the start. Janelle you now have a new fan! In this video she []

VIDEO: TONI BRAXTON – ‘MAKE MY HEART’

Make My Heart is Toni Braxton’s new single and to be honest I’m a little disappointed. I mean it’s actually quite catchy and I can see it going down relatively well in the clubs, but Toni could have released a stronger comeback single and video. This woman used to be a superstar. What happened??? Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

VIDEO: DRAKE – ‘OVER’

Major excitement! Overly-hyped rapper/singer Drake has finally released the video for his single Over. I LOVE the production on this track, but Drake isn’t a spectacular lyricist. They really are trying their hardest (his team)  to brainwash the public in to believing that this man is the hottest artist out their right now.  But it’s all LIES!!! And as for the video – what was that??? Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

UK “BEEF”: LETHAL B DISSES N-DUBZ

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. It doesn’t get anymore ridiculous then this! Grime star  Lethal B rants about “super group” N-Dubz stealing a song from him (I think) and then shows off his house MTV Cribs style. The house  apparently cost £750k. I just hope he’s managing to keep up with the mortgage repayments. Via Brown Eyez *rubbing temples* Unbelievable…….. Your thoughts please “fam”…..
