Last weekend I decided to get in touch with Bobby V and find out what's happening with him at the moment. In the conversation he talks about -
*His New Label
*Are him and Ludacris Still Cool?
*The Super Group he has formed with Lloyd & Ray J
Check the conversation below.
The second single from the album 'Year Of The Gentleman' just got better with a brand new remix video featuring Jamie Foxx & Fabolous. Also more good news for you Ne-Yo fans, I just finished the official best of Ne-Yo mix for Def jam and I will upload the link a bit later on this evening so look out for it!
I mentioned a few months back about Christina signing a deal with MySpace Records and now the first single has been revealed 'Us Against The World' which is due to surface on Oct 6th. Read on to find out what she had to say about her new venture...
“I’ve been out of the game for one and a half years, and I think I’m long overdue for a comeback, so I’m treating this album like it’s my last chance to make an impression. I’m competing with myself and being very detailed.” “Before, I had a label telling me what direction to go in. Now, it’s my choice, so I’m being very particular about it and I’m really excited.”
“I have a lot of support from my peers. I have lots of people that love me and want the best for me. Sometimes things don’t work out the right way, but I know I work my butt off on my end. As long as you know you worked hard, you feel accomplished. Thankfully, I took the time off to check out what’s going on and now I’m back, and MySpace is allowing me to do tons of different things creatively.”

Just having little look on YouTube and I came across this video for Kwame's 'One Of The Big Boys. Now let me tell you when I was younger I loved this tune to bits, I was even tempted to get my hair lighted! Could you imagine that nowadays?! Any way check out the video and reminisce with me!

As NeYo continues to go from strength to strength with the release of his 3rd album 'Year Of The Gentleman' and to mark this occasion I'll be hosting some special NeYo parties in the hottest clubs around the UK, giving away t shirts, posters and copies of an exclusive hot NeYo mix CD, produced by myself. Look out for the download link coming to my blog real soon.
On the 21st October John Legend will release his 3rd studio 'Evolver' which features collaborations with Andre 3000, Estelle and of course Kanye West, there was also tracks recorded with Akon, Brandy, Kelly Rowland & Pharrell which don't seem to of made the finished album. All I'm saying is 'Green Light' is genius, I just hope there is more of the same on the album...
I swear if Beyonce made 'I Decided' that would easily of been a UK number single! Love that tune. Her new album 'Sol-Angel & The Hadley Street Dreams' aint to bad either. Check her out below on the infamous Tyra Banks show.

I thought it was about time for me start a new night in Birmingham, after all it is my hometown and I'm forever being asked when I'm playing in Brum and I'm always been told that Sunday nights need some freshness put back in them. So taking on board all that I've heard and out comes - 'Unify' my weekly Sunday night jump for the mature raver. The plan is to Obviously keep RnB strong in Birmingham but also help bring through the Funky House vibe which is becoming more and more popular in Birmingham. So now you know, if you fancy a good night out with the proper DJ's who know what their doing and a nice venue that you put on your good clothes and feel at ease, then Unify at Mono Bar is just the place for you! See you there...

Its gotta be an historic moment when you have Mariah, Beyonce, Mary J, Leona Lewis, Rihanna, Ashanti, Ciara, Fergie, Nicole Scherzinger, Natasha Bedingfeild & Keyshia Cole all on the same stage! Check them all out singing 'Just Stand Up' in aid of 'Stand Up To Cancer' On this occasion I'm not gonna make any sarcastic comments as this done for a serious cause.
Ryan's set to drop his self titled album this month and hopefully we'll finally see him get the credit he deserves! I like the video but where's Cassie?!
Check the video for the first single 'Addiction' Ft Fabolous & Cassie
So lets see who's wearing what at tonight's MTV VMA's taking place at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood, California. (click on the picture to see a larger image)
Luda, take my advice - don't quit rapping for acting! There's only one Will Smith!
Liking your style Mr Legend
Not cool Mr Scoop!
Christina Aguilera's in the house.
Its Pink making an appearance
Damn RiRi looking good ;)
I think Chris is trying to master the Ne-Yo smile.
There's Ne-Yo maintaining his gentleman style.
Well I guess T Pain has never claimed to be sane or claimed to have the best dress sense!
Britney opens the show.
Rihanna - 'Disturbia'
Lil Wayne Ft Leona Lewis & T Pain
kanye West - Love Lockdown
Monica's is truly one of them artists that refuses to stay down! Damn when I thing about its she's been through a lot. Anyway Lil Miss Thang is back with with a new single 'Still Standing' which features fellow ATL native Ludacris. At the moment the album is titled the same name as is scheduled for release next year. I really hope this is more successful then her last album 'Makings Of Me' which was Monica's lowest selling album. Check her out in Atlanta for V103's Soul Session.
I've been excited about Ciara's forthcoming album 'Fantasy Ride' since I heard the track 'High Price' featuring Ludacris, and now hearing this new joint 'Go Girl' I'm even more excited about what's still to come. I played this joint on my show last Friday and I got some mixed reviews from the studio crew about it, personally I think its FIRE! Have a listen to it your self and make up your own mind...
Also check out CiCi on the front cover of this months VIbe Magazine.
Here's what she said about being in the shoot...
Ciara Ft T Pain - Go Girl
My favorite Gospel sister Erica & Tina aka Mary Mary are back with a big sounding uptempo joint 'Get Up' is the first single from their new album 'The Sound' due out next month. Actually when I think about it, I should be playing this joint a lot more than I am already, it is a bad tune! (bad meaning good!) Check the video below!
