This morning Ashanti stopped by New York’s Power 105.1′s Breakfast Club to talk about her new album Braveheart, which is in stores now. This is the first album she is releasing independently, so she talks about the struggle of having her own label and being in charge of every detail going into the album. She also talks about how her music career kind of dismantled when Murder Inc. started going through their legal issues and her current relationship with Irv Gotti and Ja Rule. However, the main topic of the interview was of course her relationship with Nelly and whether the rumors were true about the two being back together. Things sounded pretty interesting if you ask me, check out the interview below.
Just in case you have been under a rock recently, Pharrell has been having a great year thus far with his hit singles “Happy”, “Get Lucky” and his feature on Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”. At this years Grammy Awards he took home three awards and he is nominated for Best Original Song at this Sunday’s Academy Awards. His new album G I R L will release next week on March 3rd, and although the album is highly anticipated there was a little controversy surrounding the cover. Apparently, there were some people who were a little salty because they didn’t see any black females on the cover. In an interview with The Breakfast Club, he talks about his new music, he responds to critics who have something to say about the cover and he even reveals the secret to his flawless skin.

Congratulations to Chris Brown who has completed his 90-day court ordered stint in rehab. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I hope some time away has taught him something positive, and will keep him out of jail for fighting. According to E! Online the R&B singer has voluntarily extended his stay in anger management rehab, which to me screams progress.
The singer is starting the year off right after also receiving the Second Chance At Loving Life award from 2nd Call for his work in reducing street violence and trying to unite LA gangs through his own organization the Symphonic Love Foundation and Unity Campaign. He also announces his return to Instagram changing his handler to Chris Brown Official instead of F@$% Yo Pictures! Last but certainly not least the singer also announces the release date for his new album, X, on May 5th.
It’s about that time where the latest American Idol winner releases their debut album and with the 13th season currently in full effect, last years winner Candice Glover is gearing up to release her first album Music Speaks, which releases on February 18th. The album includes contributions from producers and songwriters such as Rodney Jerkins, Ester Dean, Jazmine Sullivan, Apex and others. With this album Candice definitely stays true to what made her an American Idol winner and that is her strong vocal ability. The album opens up with her debut single “Cried”, which is currently number 23 on the US Adult R&B Chart and that song definitely shows Candice’s strong vocal ability. The album includes other ballads, but also more uptempo songs such as “Die Without You” and “Same Kinda Man” and the album ends with her uplifting song “I Am Beautiful”.

After what seems to be quite some time Ashanti seems to have an official single and the official visual to match for her upcoming studio album Braveheart. She stopped by 106 & Park yesterday to premiere the video for hosts Bow Wow and Keisha Chante and the audience members. There were many setbacks and a few singles released here and there, but Ashanti definitely has a banger on her hands. The music video features the head honcho of MMG Rick Ross, along with vocals from Atlanta’s very own Future. The sexy video was shot in Miami with a club scenery, which allowed Ashanti show off her dancing skills.
