Throwback Tuesday: Case feat. Joe – ‘Faded Pictures’

Case is a Grammy-nominated R&B singer/songwriter. He got his start co-writing and singing background for artists including Usher, Christopher Williams and Al B. Sure. Russell Simmons helped Case launch his solo career by signing him to Def Jam Records in the mid ’90s. “Faded Pictures” was a single released from his platinum album Personal Conversation, which featured fellow R&B crooner Joe.

The single reached No. 3 on the R&B charts and No. 10 on the Hot 100. On the song they sing about a troubled (female) lover being in a relationship but still reflecting on her past love / relationship. Case & Joe made for the perfect duo as they sung, “Faded pictures in a broken glass, like a mirror revealing, what the women is feeling / Was it someone from a distant past, cause it’s breaking my heart to watch her stare into the glass.”

Enjoy the classic above!

Video: Keyshia Cole – ‘Remember (Part 2)’


With her new album Point of No Return in stores, Keyshia Cole continues to share the 13 visuals she shot from it. After performing the song live for the first time on The Queen Latifah Show, the R&B vixen returns with the music video for “Remember (Part 2).”

Keyshia pours her heart out on the emotional sequel to her 2007 single “I Remember,” as she sings about falling out of love with her estranged husband Daniel “Boobie” Gibson. She spends a day at the ocean with her son in between takes, and belts out the heartfelt ballad on a rock cliff.

“I don’t know if I even miss you / Don’t want to kiss you / How can you love somebody and everything just changes?” she asks. “I just can’t take no more, it’s not meant to be / Just not meant to be,” she sings.

Keyshia will also return to BET in a 6-episode docu-series chronicling her struggles with marriage, motherhood, and her career this fall. Early next year she will hit the road with K. Michelle on their currently untitled joint tour.

Video: ILoveMakonnen feat. Drake – Tuesday


Drake has a knack for jumping on records and turning them into overnight smashes, which most recently happened when he remixed the underground hit “Club Goin’ Up on a Tuesday” by ILoveMakonnen. After singing him to his OVO Sound label, the duo come together for the official music video to the Metro Boomin & Sonny Digital-produced hit.

The Atlanta singer/rapper goes up with Drizzy and his OVO crew in a club, and shares his strange fascination with dolls. Women don masks, much like the ones that appear on his album artwork, while a smiling Makonnen sings the getting lit anthem.

In an interview with The FADER, Makonnen revealed that while awaiting a trial for an accidental shooting, he obtained a degree in cosmetology and dolled up mannequin heads in makeup and pink hair, with dreams of one day making his dolls famous. When his classmates mocked him, he told them, “I’m going to make these dolls famous. I’m going to take them all over the world.”

Watch him live out his dream in the new video below:
