Who said that a man can't marry two women at the same time? Silly rule if you ask me, its a rule that I intend to break, because after I marry Christina Milian I'm then gonna put a ring on Tatyana Ali's finger too! Then we're going to live together like one big happy family :)
With no editorial reason for putting these pics up apart from highlighting how good she looks in these pics and plus I'm allowed to show off my future wife!
Her full recent interview can be read HERE

Well beings though everyone thinks that Ne-Yo diss track is aimed at Chris, I'm not too sure if that's the case since I seen these recent pictures of the pair together.
So if he wasn't talking about Chris, then who the hell is he talking about?

Phatfffat is the latest signing to Jermaine Dupri's 'So So Def label, she basically got the deal through creating internet hype with her YouTube page which got over a million hits! Gotta hand it to her, she does a good job at covering Jazmine Sullivans 'Need You Bad'. Watch the video and see what you think. Btw its worth skipping past her chit chat as thats not really interesting.

Again its another relaxing Sunday so its time to take you back into time with my weekly feature 'Vintage Sundays'. This week for I thought TLC's 1992 debut single 'Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg' would be a good choice, i've not seen this video for ages. Of course its only right I say RIP Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez still sadly missed.

Both of these two are well respected radio personality's in the US and its funny to hear them chat to each other on radio. Just in case your not aware of either of them - Ed Lover came to fame in the early 90's through presenting the legendary Hip Hop Show 'Yo MTV Raps' and Wendy Williams is known as the queen of radio in New York through her controversial interviews. Recently Wendy started her own daytime show on Fox TV and Ed Lover caught up with her for his breakfast show on Power 105.1. and spoke to her about her new venture.
Listen to the interview below.
Damn there's a ridiculous amount of album sales between these 3 artists, but can they make a hit single?! I think they can, I like this tune - mad catchy, nice light vibe, perfect for radio, I hope it works. 'Body On Me' Is taken from Nelly's forthcoming album 'Brass Knuckles' due out September 15th 08. There's also an Ashanti version of this which can be found on her album 'The Declaration'
A few weeks ago I went to Robin's album playback and although I wasn't blown away by anything I heard I'm sure loving this one! 'Magic' is the first single from 3rd studio album 'Something Else' due for release in September 08.
Check out the video below.

Back in 2006 I decided to cut my braids off, I just thought that whole style had its day so I might as well go for an all over number 1 fade, since my trend changing look lol, Busta, Ludacris, Trey Songz, etc have all done the same now the next one to do the big chop is Omarion! All it takes is for R Kelly & Lloyd to join him, go on guys you don't wanna be the last man standing...
Think it suits him?
On Friday at Midnight (technically sat) don't miss my radio show on BBC Radio 1Xtra as I'll be speaking to Cheri Dennis. She's one of my favourite artists and I've always felt she hasn't got the recognition she deserves, she was signed by P Diddy to Bad Boy Records in 2001 but never dropped her debut till 2007! I needed to talk to her and find out what really happened. Find out her story this Friday from midnight only on the 1Xtra RnB Show with yours truly!
If your a bit unsure of who she is click HERE
Right now I'm blogging live and direct from the Apple store in Brent Cross lol! My Laptop aint feeling to well and needs to be taken back to the Apple Store so they can make him better!
Anyway my future wife to be Christina Milian (soon to be Christina Child, wow that even sounds good, she could even shorten it to CC, yeeeeeah man) has been seen out with her current boyfriend - Dre from who is one half of the production due Cool & Dre. In the pics she looks kinda happy, BUT she'd be happier with meeeeeeeeee!

So on Monday morning I got a phone call saying Ne-Yo want you to play at his album play back which took place last night in Central London, of course I had to think deep and hard about this, after all Tuesday night is Eastenders night. (praise the lord for the BBC iPlayer lol) but no seriously of course I was happy to accept. Ne-Yo's 3rd album 'Year Of The Gentleman' is due out in the UK on Sep 1st and last night a selected number of people checked out 5 new tracks from the album, here's how they went down....
Back To What You Know - Produced By Stargate
You have to admit the chemistry between Ne-Yo and Stargate is a winning formula which is proven again on this mid tempo cut about a girl he thinks would be better of going back to the man she was with before. This could easily be a single.
What's The Matter - Produced By Chuck Harmony
This is one Im sure you can relate to. Ne-Yo tells the story about a lady that wants something so bad but when she finally gets it, she realises she actually didn't want it in the first place. The thing she wanted so bad, like a few women do... a Bad Boy, so obviously you know what happens there... I remember this one had a slight rock music appeal to it as well, overall not a bad track.
So You Can Cry - Produced By Science
Its true story time with this one as Ne-Yo breaks down what happened to his friend that broke up with her man and locked her self away in her apartment for 2 week because she was so heartbroken! But Ne-Yo being the gentleman that he is comes to her rescue and tells her a few kind words to get her back on top of things again.
Stop The World - Produced By Chuck Harmony
The title of this one is not what you think, nor is it another Michael Jackson 'Earth Song' kind of track. In fact its about girl being so in love she thinks the world has stopped! (all together now - ahhhh!) This was easily the most emotional track I've heard out of the 5.
Ms Independent - Produced By Stargate
Again another Stargate produced joint which will also be the second single from the album. The title speaks for its self as you might of guessed its all about the independent lady! The kind of lady you need to be if you want to stand a chance with Ne-Yo. I'll let you make your own mind up on this one as you can listen to it below.
Year Of The Gentleman is due for release on Sep 1st 08
Few pics from the night
On the menu for tonight we have...
Oh no... Could it be true?! Has DJ Semtex turned into an RnB thug?!!! More on this story as we get it.
1Xtra daytime presenter Max, talented singer Ny & 1Xtra show producer Julie all in the house!

OK so today Im taking you back to 1991 with a timeless classic. This is the type of tune that will still smash it in the right place with the right people. Sadly to say one of the members from Hi-Five - Tony Thompson passed away just over a year ago. Without a doubt 'I Like The Way' was the groups biggest hit, so sit back - watch the video and enjoy a stroll down memory lane!
Hi-Five - 'I Like The Way'

Yes you read the title correctly! Ryan has gone a step further and made a mini movie for his single 'Diamond Girl'. I have to say Ryan's acting is pretty good, this might even be the start of his movie career...
What do you think of his acting skills?
At long last Keri's solo career seems to moving in the right direction! This single could easily top the UK charts with the right promotion and just to add my own personal thoughts, i've never really found Keri that sexy until this video! Go on girl!
Sunday, July 13
Don't call it a come back, he's been here for years! LL's back with a new single 'Baby' from what will be his last album on Def Jam - 'Exit 13'. I don't think this is the greatest track, but The Dream does his thing on it and I'm a big LL fan so it still gets my support. There is a track LL recorded with Trey Songz is much better, Check it out underneath the video.
LL Cool J Ft Trey Songz - 'Girl If I'
For once I'm glad its Sunday - need to chill out and sit on my butt all day, might even get a rare early night... Now its only right that todays Vintage Sunday video comes from a true Legend in the game who was also in the UK last week promoting her new album 'Funk This', its the one and only Chaka Khan with 'I Feel For You'. Now this track I would go as far as saying it might be my favorite track of all time! Seriously, I love this track so much, I was only 7 when this came out but I remember it so well! Be prepared for some heavy body popping!
Chaka Khan - 'I Feel For You'

You might remember O'so Krispie from a reality TV show called R U The Girl, where a bunch of hopefuls battled it out for the chance to be featured on the next TLC single in replacement of the late Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez. Not quite sure how, but O'so Krispie won... And now she's back with a new video called 'Slumber Party'
Do you think she was the right person to replace Left Eye?

Check out Chris talking to Hot 97 presenter Angie Martinez about being compared to Usher. Personally I think Chris has so much more work to do before he's on the same level as Usher, you know 12 million albums is not easy to sell. But on the other hand I think he has the best chance of doing it more then any other RnB artist out there right now.
Former Blackstreet member Chauncey Black is back with a video for his new track 'Everyday Is Your Birthday'. In 2006 Busta Rhymes signed him to his label 'Flipmode', Chauncey's brand new album 'Church Boy' is due out before the end of the year.
Check out the video for the first single 'Every Day Is Your Birthday'.
Just under a month to go till Lloyd drops his 3rd studio album, 'Lessons In Love' is due out on Aug 5th. But looking at the tracklistings I don't see any of the other songs featuring Ludacris, Nelly and The Dream... Surely they have to make the finished copy.
1. Sex Education
2. Girls Around The World (featuring Lil Wayne)
3. Treat U Good
4. Year of the Lover
5. I Can Change Your Life
6. Lose Your Love
7. Have My Baby
8. Love Making 101
9. Party All Over Your Body
10. A Day In The Life
11. Touched By An Angel
12. I’m Wit It
13. Heart Attack
Tuesday, July 8
I really believe that Lloyd has stepped up his game with this new album 'Lessons In Love' is due out August 5th 2008 and so far its sounding like a really good album. I've heard at least half of the album and all the tracks are definitely up to standard.
Check out 'Lose Control' Ft Nelly. (BIG tune)
The Essence Music Festival took place last weekend in New Orleans, this is basically yearly event with a line up of massive artists from the world of black music. This year there were performances from Rihanna, Chris Brown & J Holiday just to name a few. Check out how it went down below.
Rihanna - 'Unfaithful'
Chris Brown - 'Yo' (Excuse Me Miss)
J Holiday - 'Bed'
This really is the track that raised the bar for Ne-Yo, he smacked it with the video too, proper made him look like a world class star.
Here's a recently live performance of the former UK number one single - 'Closer', taken from the Nissan Live Sets.

This weeks Vintage Sunday's comes from a true icon in the game, its the one and only Janet Jackson! Although I don't enjoy her music as much as I used too, lets not forget about the some of the classics she blessed us with back in the day!
Its time to take you back to 1986 with Janet's Classic 'When I Think Of You'

Most of the time when I write about Christina Milian there is no editorial reason, this time I could tell you about her signing a deal with MySpace Records, but do you really care (tell me if you do and I will drop some knowledge!) I could also tell you about her new tune which I played on my Radio show last Friday. But no I just want to show you these wonderful pictures of her doing what she does best, posing in a bikini! And I'm sure I speak for every man with good taste in women...
Christina you don't have to make another record for the rest of your life, I will always love you all the same xxx ;)
A couple of weeks ago I broke I posted a blog about Ne-Yo diss track, which I thought may have been aim at R Kelly, but now its a lot clearer to see that the jabs are most definitely aimed at Chris Brown! Ne-Yo has now taken it a step further and shot a video for the diss track - check it out below.
***THIS VIDEO CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE, DONT WATCH IT IF YOUR EASILY OFFENDED!***

Still really proud of Leona's achievements since winning The X Factor. On Friday 27th June she was a part of the Nelson Mandela's 90th Birthday celebrations in London's Hyde Park.
Check out her performance below and see what you think.
