“Sometimes you need perspective. You’ve been right in front of greatness so often that you need to step back and see it again for the first time. This is the dressing room rehearsal for American Idol. NO MICROPHONE. No effects.” – Andy WarHOV
Before Beyonce debuted her new song “1+1″ for millions on American Idol’s season finale last night, she rehearsed it flawlessly in her dressing room. Check out this candid iPhone footage shot by Jay-Z.
R&B singer/songwriter, Timothy Bloom, unveiled new photos from his forthcoming album, In Full Bloom, and took Aol Music behind-the-scenes at the photo shoot. In the video, Timothy gives details of the sexy nude shoot for his video “’Til The End of Time,” childhood memories, and who he would like to collaborate with.
Ne-Yo is ready to shed the stiff suit and tie look, for more relaxed gentlemen attire, as he looks to set a new trend with his next album release. The dapper singer/songwriter also announces plans to release his next album this coming September.
With the recent batch of leaks of old demo’s by The Weeknd, the Toronto songsmith has liberated our first taste of a brand new record, titled “Rolling Stone”. A similar mellow vibe to his past work, the first leak from his forthcoming mixtape “Thursday” (a great title by the way), starts with a heavy rock riff, but then smooths out with an acoustic guitar backed track, and then ends with what sounds like a strong transition into what, we will have to wait and see.
Can we say “R&B Drug Music”? Check it out and stay tuned!
Meet Tofo Tofo, a Mozambican kwaito dance group, who are behind the opening dance sequence, and featured in the video of Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)”. When the video first premiered I wondered why she choose to have two men in the front of all women dancers and herself, on a record about women. Well, now we know, Bey put them in the video because they created the dance.
The above clip is from a wedding party in 2009, and you can see the similarities back then. Good for them, and good of Bey to give them so much shine. I re-posted the “Run The World” video after the jump so you can compare them now after seeing this. What do you think?
