During what I believe to be the most exciting 4th quarter in hip-hop/R&B, Nicki Minaj drops her “highly anticipated” album, The Pinkprint. Check out my thoughts.
Iggy Azalea is having a hell of a year, four hit singles; two as a solo artist and two featured, “Fancy” “Black Widow” (ft. Rita Ora) “Problem” as a featured artist with Ariana Grande and T.I.‘s “No Mediocre.” Four GRAMMY nominations; Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Song and Record of the Year for “Fancy,” the only thing left to do was a North American tour. Well that’s next on her list as she announced the dates for her North American tour, The Great Escape Tour, featuring Nick Jonas and Tinashe. The spring tour kicks off August 14 in Fresno, California and wraps up May 24 in Austin, Texas.
K. Michelle is the girl that I went to high school with that now has 4 kids and is on the 5th round of her on/off baby daddy relationship who she claims is her hubby, but ain’t no paperwork. She dropped an album earlier this week and I’m going to start writing more again…
Some might think I only review good music and those people are correct. Why waste words on bulls*it? Jermaine Cole released an album earlier this week that no one knew about until a few weeks ago. No Promo. No Marketing. No Scandal. Just Music.
It’s officially GRAMMY season, as the nominees for the 2015 57th annual show were announced over social media on Friday, December 5. Sam Smith, Pharrell and Beyonce led the way with six nominations each. Pharrell picks up extra nominations for his contributions to Beyonce and Ed Sheeran‘s albums as a producer while Beyonce passed Dolly Parton as the most nominated female of all time.
The format of this post will be the same as previous year’s: who should win/who will win. I will have some help here with our own Cody Taylor doing the Rock categories and Carina Stewart from Q100.3 doing the country categories.
It’s officially GRAMMY season! This morning on CBS the lead up to “Music’s Biggest Night started,” when Pharrell and Ed Sheeran dropped by to kick off the announcing of 2015 GRAMMY nominees. This year the show has decided to be more social media friendly and announce the 2015 GRAMMY Nominees over social media, and update them throughout the day. With the 2015 GRAMMY nominees for Album of the Year will be announced on their special on CBS.
Yesterday was World AIDS Day, and U2 frontman Bono, threw a free “surprise concert” in Times Square, that he wasn’t there for, to raise money for AIDS research. The rest of U2 performed with Coldplay‘s Chris Martin and Bruce Springsteen. Also gracing the stage was Carrie Underwood
and my guy Kanye West.
Kanye West is working on the follow up to his highly controversial Yeezus album, which was given critical acclaim by industry insiders but not so well received by fans when it was released last June. The follow up to the album, which is described as a less abrasive version of Yeezus, is rumored to be released this year and Def Jam CEO says the album sounds “incredible.”
The 2014-2015 NFL season is right around the corner and Super Bowl XLIX will be here before we know it. February 1, 2015 will be here sooner then you expect which leads to the question, “Who will be performing at the biggest concert of the year?”
If they are going for current acts there are four artists who I could legitametely see performing at “the big game.”
Music’s biggest night, the 2015 GRAMMY Awards are about six months away, but like I’ve done for the past couple years I am going to go out on a limb and make (number) BOLD predictions for the show! October 31, 2013 – September 30, 2014 are the eligibility dates for the 2015 show:
