I didn’t get to see this live as I had to head to Sirius during the halftime show I gotta admit it wasn’t that bad. We all know Rihanna isn’t the best singer or dancer but she manages to rock this performance. She really gets sexier & sexier with each new project & make-over. Applaud her stylist for taking her career to the next level & Terius for giving her a smash hit!. During the “What’s My Name” performance the flirtation between her & Aubrey is blatantly obvious, leading me to believe he tagged at least once. Thank the Lawd for hip-hop my Canadian friend. Kanye’s outfit was uhhhh…..Kanye’s outfit. Nothing that guy wears shocks me anymore, but I am a little curious about the actual material his pants were made from?? *Blank Stare* Overall that was a dope halftime show waaaaaay better than the Superbowl’s. And I gotta say I’m very happy about how
hip-hop rap R&B urban music was represented during the weekend in general. Cali Swag District, Keri Hilson, Melanie Fiona and more. Hats off to David Stern for green lighting those performers & giving them an opportunity to shine on such a grand stage.
This is by far one of my favorite records. I’ve had this beat for like 4 years I always wanted to use it but I never had the project, song idea etcetera so once I decided to do Heart Failure I pulled it out the stash. I played it for Lydia Caesar along with a few other but she loved this beat. She wrote the hook and bridge around my verses & then we tweaked a few words here & there together. The end result is Love Is War. It’s been a favorite of men & women since it’s release. I guess everyone can relate to being fed up in one way or another. Be on the look out for Lydia too, she’s an amazing singer, songwriter & performer…
I had a real hectic week, so I was definitely on some mellow ish in my very minimal down time. The iTunes/iPod play tracker says this weeks winner is Miguel. I guess I’ll set aside my dislike of his questionable album artwork & still give the homie a post. His new single “Sure Thing” goes!
Sidebar: I’d love to see the royalty statements on “All I Want Is You” that song is on the radio like every 4 songs!! Here’s to a new single, let’s get this one in the rotation PD’s.
