At 9:00 am Eastern time, Ryan Seacrest announced the lineup for the 2012 iHeart Music Fest which will be taking place September 21st & 22nd at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The lineup, while not as stacked as last year, still features a who’s who of the music industry.
Wow, a lot of new music videos this week, I didn’t even know people watched them anymore LOL. Anyway Mary J Blige is back with the video for her latest single, which isn’t doing too hot on the charts, considering it’s featuring Drake. Come to think of it their other collabs didn’t do so hot either.
I know Cody posted a rock song for Throwback Tuesday, but this song has a special meaning which is why I chose it. We’re going back to 1998 for this song from the Armageddon soundtrack, and was surprisingly their only #1 single. Anybody that knows a lot about me knows that I am not a very emotional person, but this song is the only song that has made me cry as an adult. We are almost six years to the day, November 05, since my grandmother passed away. The day after she passed, I went to the grocery store and this song came on the radio and listening to the lyrics just made me get pretty emotional. So now when I hear the song it makes me think of her.
Estelle and Mary J Blige performed on last nights elimination episode of Dancing With the Stars, Estelle teamed up with Chubby Checker to perform the song that Billboard magazine named the biggest chart song of all time, “The Twist.” Mary J. on the other hand performed her classic 1992 anthem, and the song that put her on the map in the music industry, “Real Love.”
A few weeks back I posted a new song by Mary J Blige called “Titanium,” produced by David Guetta. When the tracklist for Nothing But The Beat, the song was listed as being performed by Sia, who was Christina Aguliera’s vocal coach on The Voice, she also wrote the song. Since the Mary J. Blige version of the hit the web we can compare and contrast!
Alright so by the time you read this I will have watched Mary J Blige’s Behind the Music, and I’m sure watching it would have brought me some memories of some of Mary’s classic bangers. So much so that instead of the one song, or even a double play, I had to do a Mary J triple play! So enjoy some of these #classic Mary!
New music has leaked from the “Queen of Hip Hop Soul,” Mary J. Blige, and this is definitely a different sound than we’ve ever heard from her. She teams up with David Guetta who has been changing the music game over the past two years with his infusing Hip Hop, R&B, & Pop with Dance/Electro music. Mary J has changed her sound up for this track, what do you think about it? Wednesday night I posted the official tracklist for Guetta’s “Nothing But The Beat,” and it had an artist by the name of Sia listed so it looks like this version didn’t make the cut for the album.
My baby is back with some new music! This is a leak (possibly from her new album New Life). It’s produced by Missy Elliott and features Rick Ross and Lil Kim, there’s also a Notorious B.I.G. sample and a shout out to Mary J at the beginning of the track! Monica also sent a tweet out today that might give some insight to her next move!
