  4. From Shading acts who lip sync, Britney's cover of My Prerogative and the thought of covering a Britney song, Paula Abdul, Mariah Carey with an iconic I don't think of her, To females taking clothes off and being ****** and smutty, To her mom infamously shading Janet Jackson for being a ***** on stage.
  5. Taylor swift is #1 again on the Billboard 200 and History, I mean herstory was made today. Taylor Swift surpasses Whitney Houston as the female artist with the most weeks at #1 in the Billboard 200. Argue with billboard, I shared the actual receipt.
  6. Between those six divas, who was the most popular female artist spanning the 90s? Not just how many records did each sell but who really dominated the 90s music and pop culture scene OVERALL? I always hear Mariah Carey was regarded as the most 'popular' but when I look at the stats, it seems like Madonna, Whitney and Celine were far more global and popular. ANYWAY - what is the general consensus on this? Who was the most popular female artist during the 90s or how would you rank them? If there is someone I left out, please let me know as well.
  7. Brandy dropped her new album, B7, her first formal release since 2012's Two Eleven. She says her favorite song on the album, “Borderline,” which channels “Angel in Disguise” from her 1998 album Never Say Never. On “Unconditional Oceans” she taps into an electro-soul vibe. "I believe that music heals. Music is the language that we all speak. It is what we all need, and I feel like we need it more now than we ever have," Brandy says. "This is the year where we all need to feel like we have something to get us through. ... I was a little hesitant with putting out music in this time because, of course, you want to speak to the times. And I'm thinking, "My music is not about exactly what's going on right now." But then I thought, "But this is the time where people need to feel like they have something to just escape and just help them heal." ... So that's what made me feel better about releasing [the album]. She added: "And I think that we don’t want to feel alone. We need to feel community, we need to feel togetherness, we need to feel love right now. And I think music is the best way to feel that. It’s the shortcut to feeling that right away." Listen below. Exhale, favorite song?!
  8. Lately I've been thinking about some of my favorite movies featuring great performances from Black pop stars. Obviously the late, great Whitney Houston comes to mind right away. The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale, The Preacher's Wife. Whitney wowed us as a leading lady in The Bodyguard and her performance broke barriers at the time. Even though she faced criticism from film critics, it's safe to say some of her movies have undoubtedly stood the test of time. Mariah has been cast in some very impressive dramatic roles in Lee Daniels films Precious and The Butler. Justice For Glitter! Beyonce in Dreamgirls and The Lion King. Janet Jackson (Miss Jackson if you're nasty) in Poetic Justice Diana Ross, Janelle Monae, Aaliyah, Will Smith. The list goes on... I'm curious what some of your fave crossover performances are. Let's discuss!

  15. TLC's iconic third studio album, FanMail is celebrating it's 21st anniversary! This is my all time favorite album from the group as well as one of my most favorite girlgroup albums ever. But that's really not why I wanted to discuss this album with y'all. Our fave's debut single ...Baby One More Time was offered to TLC (we all know that) for FanMail but was rejected by the group. They were also offered Heartbreak Hotel by Whitney Houston feat. Faith Evans and Kelly Price (I luuurve) but also turned it down. Now just think for a second had they hit their head on the pavement and took on Baby would we even be here on Exhale? Would Exhale even exist? That is why I believe we sort of have ties to this album because it kind of... started a butterfly effect that ultimately lead to us all being here. Our fates are intertwined to this album. Now let's discuss FanMail and be thankful they didn't end up with the record. Rise up, Exhale rise, this is the beginning. Released in February 23, 1999 and executive produced by TLC together with LA Reid [see Britney Spears singing Happy Birthday on the X Factor S2, 2012], Babyface, and one of my favorite producers, Dallas Austin. FanMail was a groundbreaking album not only for the group but also for american girl groups in general. The Spice Girls were busy taking over the UK and the entire world, while their equally good and extremely underrated R&B counterpart, All Saints, were also achieving a lot of success, though not in the same level as their pop sisters. No other american girl group at the turn of the millenium achieved the same superstar success as their UK sisters. This album would later pave the way for another legendary girlgroup that eventually outsold TLC, and that is Destiny's Child. The success of FanMail's R&B female empowerment sound would work in DC's favor (and later on, Beyoncé's solo work) as The Writing's On The Wall would debut just 4 months after FanMail and also gave DC their first Hot 100 #1 in Bills, Bills, Bills which shares a very similar theme and message with FanMail lead single, No Scrubs - also a Hot 100 #1. More on the singles later. It's worth noting that TLC's previous album CrazySexyCool produced 4 Top 5 hits including 2 #1s and achieved monster sales in the US. It was nominated for 6 Grammys, winning 3 awards at the infamous 1996 ceremony where Mariah Carey's Daydream was controversially snubbed and lost all of its 6 nominations. This is also the year that Alanis Morrissette's Jagged Little Pill became the biggest winner of the night with 4 awards. The most iconic Grammy ceremony, if you ask me. With FanMail, we saw TLC own their superstardom with a more commercial and polished look and sound. Think of it, like, with the case of ...Baby One More Time and Oops!...I Did It Again. Both iconic. Both are monster hits. Both nominated for 2 Grammys. And although B2's singles didn't chart as well as B1's singles and ultimately didn't sell as much copies as B1 in the US and worldwide, I think we can all agree that Oops! really gave us Britney, the pop phenomenon, that we didn't get in the Baby era.🌟 That's exactly the comparison I am making with CrazySexyCool and FanMail. Like with the case of Oops! being sonically the same as Baby, Oops! is more polished. FanMail is their Oops!...I Did It Again. FanMail was nominated for 8 Grammys at the 2000 ceremony and won 3 awards. The same ceremony where we saw our girl lose both Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best New Artist... to Christina Aguilera. FanMail gave us three singles - two of which hit #1 on the Hot 100 and became global smashes. The first single, the iconic and forever fresh, No Scrubs - teaches the listener that "a scrub is a guy that thinks he's fine and is also known as a 'buster'". The second single, Unpretty has a strong message about the pressure of looking pretty and outpeaked/outsold Beyoncé's Pretty Hurts. It's controversial music video on plastic surgery particularly breast implants is also iconic. The third and last single, my personal favorite, the criminally underrated, Dear Lie - which stalled at #51 on the Hot 100. Break the Ice outpeaked. Dear Lie is my all time favorite track from the group. In 2000, I even bought... well, I asked my mom... to buy this VCD with 16 music videos (most of which i didn't care for) just so I could get Dear Lie and Born to Make You Happy and watch them on repeat. Ugh. Good times. They also released Silly Ho as a promotional single which peaked at #59 on the Hot 100. I can neither confirm or deny that they actually wrote this for me. The song talks about a woman who isn't a "silly ho" and can buy her own rings and doesn't need a man to buy her stuff because she. owns. everything! Does that sound familiar? Independent Women Part 1 and Love Don't Cost a Thing outpeaked, outsold, outimpacted tho. The album also has a song called I'm Good at Being Bad that samples "Love to Love You Baby" by Donna Summer which was also sampled by... surprise again [!] Beyoncé, on Naughty Girl. Fun Fact: For those of you who watch The Necki Menij Show, and if you've heard FanMail, you know and should preach FanMail IMPACT! They were doing it waaay before our faves Necki Menij and Brinty Joan. Watch the music videos here and give #JUSTICEFORDEARLIE And listen to Independent Women Part 0 here. Listen to Naughty Girl Part 0 here. If you've reached this point, thank you for taking the time to read this thing I wrote out of boredom. Bless you! ❤❤❤ - Roxxy 💋
  16. A SEMI-NEW WHITNEY HOUSTON SONG GETS AN EDM UPDATE. The Whitney Houston estate released her cover of Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” as a Japanese bonus track on her 1990 album I’m Your Baby Tonight, but the song received a dance-floor ready re-working by Norwegian producer, Kygo. The original topped the charts in 1986. The reason it never made Baby Tonight was purely strategic. “When [producer] Narada Michael Walden sent me ‘Higher Love’ with the Whitney vocal, we didn’t want her being a cover artist at that time,” record producer Clive Davis said. Kygo was selected as the producer to reimagine “Higher Love” because execs were pleased with his remix of Marvin Gaye’s “****** Healing.” A thumping piano, synths and other production gymnastics breathe new life into the classic. Whitney’s vocals are as striking and vibrant as ever. It’s bittersweet to hear something fresh from Queen Whitney because her presence is sorely missed, but fortunately Kygo did her justice; “Higher Love” sounds incredible. There’s more material from the Whitney estate expected to debut soon, as well as a hologram tour. Listen below:
