Feels so good:
We all know her as the
bashfully loud 'Scary Spice' of the
Spice Girls who spiced up the
lives of millions of fans in the mid to late 90s but now this 'Spice
Girl' alum (who's given name is Melanie
Brown) ventures out on her own
with her first solo debut called 'Hot' (Virgin)
The latest release from the
album is the catchy dance floor mover 'Feels so good' written
and produced by Jimmy Jam and
management). This is a signature JJ and TL collaboration that's
highlighted with their flair and grace for keeping the song true to
form and bringing out Mel's voice to another level. Coupled with
remixes from Blacksmith and
Maurice Joshua she scores
yet again as a solo act with this one and the video certainly helps as
she shows off that sexy body of hers.
Album is in stores now as well
as the single, pick it up and give it a listen as I would say " A
TY-D Pick indeed".
Session: LP (Elektra)
remember when Silk first
came unto the scene back in 92 with their dance floor mover 'Happy
Days' and the sultry balllad 'Freak
me' produced by Keith
Sweat (who discovered them). Both
songs were hits and you thought that they would blow up (so to speak).
But they didn't quite blow up and left the Keith Sweat fold for
some 9 years later, after the success of last year's 'Tonight'
album the lads return with 'Love
Session' their new album for Elektra,
an album filled with smooth ballads and dance floor groovers. The
lead off single is the sensual ballad 'We're
calling u' presently making the
circuit rounds to radio. A lovely balld here for all fans of Silk to
get into. Other notables include 'Treated
like a Lady', 'Nursery
mean to', 'Ebony Eyes'
done origionally by Rick James,
the exceptional 'Ahh'
and the title track.
The album was co-produced by the boys and
'Delite' Allamby and will be in
stores June 12th. A most def Ty-D Pick
- U remind me:
year was supposed to see the release of Usher's latest
about you' then the album was leaked to
were downloaded left, right and center so Usher (given name
Usher Raymond) decided to go back into
the studio and re-recorded al most all the songs, lay down some new ones and came up
with a new album, new title and new look.
The name of the
album is now called 8701, the release date coincidently enough is Aug
7th (hence the significance in 8701). The lead off single from the set is the catchy 'U
remind me' written and produced by
the multi-grammy winning producing team of Jimmy Jam and
The song is very different from the normally Jermaine Dupri
that just seems to carry the same flavour and that to me is a refreshing of pace for
I am sure he will lure young and old fans alike with this one.
