We’ve all heard this question before. If you only have one day to live, what would you do? Not to get into that convo right now, but for a brief moment, to be honest I know for damn sure I wouldn’t be in front of this computer, updating the site (ha). Many of you might have heard this song by R&B group Brutha. It was the first release from their delayed sophomore album Vacancy. However, you might not know that R. Kelly penned the record. We are finally lucky enough to get Kellz original version. The track was produced by Mysto & Pizzi, and this was also early in the Pop/Euro R&B sound. Hear what the legendary Robert Kelly would like to do for his last moments below.
Bonus: Here is another original from Kellz, “Back To The Way,” which was recorded by up and coming artist London. A real nice record. Check it out!
Ne-Yo is no stranger to the Pop/Euro R&B sound. Matter of fact some will say he started it with “Closer”. While that is up for debate, the superstar is going after the dance floors for real on this new leak “Tonight (Give Me Everything),” which is supposedly produced by David Guetta. “Tonight/I want all of you tonight/Give me everything tonight/For all we know/We might not get tomorrow/Lets do it tonight” he sings as the beat builds and climaxes into a lively uptempo snyth rhythm. Grab somebody sexy and get down with Ne-Yo below.
It appears someone has sprung a leak. It seems there is some more interest in KC since his single and recent video dropped. And by more interest I mean people leaking his records. We posted two previously and here is another cool cut titled, “All I Wanna Do” produced by The Runners. Kev smooths it out on this mellow track, which sounds like something Drake would do. As we await his new mixtape “By Any Means” check this out.
In this edition of Early Mornings with Marsha Ambrosius the songbird previews and shares the inspiration behind her personal favorite record off Late Nights & Early Mornings, “I Want You To Stay”. Check it out!
Rap-Up TV caught up with Ciara at Jay-Z and LeBron James’ Two Kings After-Party for her first interview since revealing that she is trying to get out of her deal with Jive Records. Despite losing her voice, the sweet singer opened up about her letter on Facebook, TV projects, upcoming USO tour, and whether she will release a video for her Usher collaboration “Turn It Up.”
