Listen: The Best of April – Top 12 Records

The Best-of-April-Image

Last month, we missed doing a monthly recap list, but it was mostly because March wasn’t too great with the singles that were released. However, April started off strong making up for it with the major comeback of Maxwell, and plenty more solid records from established stars and newcomers.

Chris Brown was pissing people off on social media, but on the music tip he surprised us all dropping the anticipated 2nd and 3rd star-studded remixes to his single “Back To Sleep.”

Rising artists like Ro James and Rush Davis had us in our feelings, T-Pain called out all the Instagram vixens who don’t even speak in their selfie vids, and Mary J slayed while reuniting with British hitmaker ROMANS.

Enough chat though, check out our list for The Best of April – Top 12 Records below!

Back To Sleep Remix 3

Praise!

If you were headed to church this morning you might just need to jump right back into that bed. Chris Brown surprised us early Sunday morning with the third edition of his “Back To Sleep” remixes, and he switched up the expected features in a major way!

After sharing the second remix with August Alsina, Miguel and Trey Songz, the R&B superstar returns with Part 3 featuring Tank, R. Kelly and Anthony Hamilton, what a combo!!!

The General kicks things off with a very sexual verse, singing “Keep that good wood on me, you loving this stick talk.” The King comes in for a surprisingly less provocative second verse, singing, “Yea I’m pimpin’ in it, 12 Play came, gangsta leanin’ in it.” Hamilton closes the show with his grown and sexy vibe, singing, “I’m here to represent girl, leave ya lying there shaking, till you just can’t take it.”

R.-Kelly-GQ-Story

Pull up a chair, get some popcorn and relish in all of Kellz!

In addition to his recent, telling, GQ story about his controversial past, R. Kelly gave the magazine a surprisingly long, detailed history of his life, in song.

While taking pictures for their feature, the R&B King was asked to sit in front of the camera and sing a few lines about his life. But instead, he delivered a 45-minute recap of his life through storytelling and singing. He recounts being shot while riding his bike as a kid, performing in front of McDonald’s, and his move to Venice Beach. In one memorable scene, Kellz is on the verge of tears describing his mother’s final moments.

“I said I promise you mama, no matter what, by any means necessary, I will be one of the best singers, songwriters this world has ever seen,” said an emotional Kellz. “I made my mom that promise, and I am still on a journey today to fulfill that promise.”

Watch R. Kelly share his joy and pain through song below.

R. Kelly Opens Up About Childhood Abuse, Sexual Allegations, Aaliyah & More!

r-kelly-gq-0216-03

R. Kelly can’t escape his troubled past. Over seven years after he was acquitted in his child pornography case, the R&B icon still faces public accusations of sexual offenses with underage women. While he has evaded the tough questions in the past, he agreed to speak with GQ about his life without restrictions.

In his most candid interview yet, entitled “The Confessions of R. Kelly,” the 49-year-old discusses the abuse he suffered as a child, the sexual allegations, his secret relationship with Aaliyah, and sleeping in his own closet.

Kelly, who documented his life in his 2012 autobiography Soulacoaster, reveals that he was being sexually abused when he was around seven or eight (“It became a regular thing. Every other day, every other week”). But when asked if it was him in that infamous videotape, he refuses to answer (per his lawyers’ advice), and claims he doesn’t know who Dave Chappelle is (The Chicago comedian parodied Kelly in his “Piss on You” skit).

Plus, find out what he had to say about his not guilty verdict and Bill Cosby’s sexual assault allegations.
