Brandy Does Track By Track Recall for 20th Anniversary of Debut- "Brandy" album

This past weekend, Brandy celebrated the 20th anniversary of her first album, Brandy. For many artists and music lovers alike, that album introduced us to a voice and talent that we'd never experienced before. Since that release, Brandy has continued to set the bar very high when it comes to vocal production and musicality.

How cute. Over the weekend music lovers got a huge treat in the form of the Global Citizen festival. Jay brought Beyonce out as a surprise (maybe not), and many more artists/celebs were in attendance. This photo shows the Deans and the Carters hanging out in the cut- probably having regular married couples convo.

Hey Moms, Thank You For Being Everything To Your Little One! (Video)

Moms are truly amazing, and since Wednesdays on social media is the day we set aside to talk about women we love or admire- we're shouting out moms! From the moment we come into the world most of our mothers fully commit to sacrificing for us in almost every way. The whole idea of pregnancy is one huge sacrifice of astronomical proportions. This is something I think about often, so when this video appeared in my timeline yesterday it spoke volumes to me.

Is Chris Brown's New Album "X" His Best Work Yet? (Review)

Finally! After multiple delays and redoes.. Chris Brown has finally! released his highly anticipated, X album. Even in the midst of jail time and other things, Chris' fan base managed to keep the promo riding high, and the reward for their diligence is finally here. I had high hopes for this album myself. With all that has transpired during it's creation I knew it had the potential to be a great offering from such a creative person. I knew Chris would pour himself out in various ways because thats what he does. What I wanted was a mature approach, and a record that featured Chris the singer more than Chris the rapper. I think I got my wishes.

I was pleasantly surprised to realize that X is a singing album. Following the trend of the singles he's dropped leading up to it, the singer/songwriter is showing off his vocal talent song after song. I'm glad he opted to not rap at all. It's not that he can't rap, but for me personally I prefer to hear him sing. He's such a good singer..why not?

X sounds like a personal journey. He's got a few records about the ups, the downs, and seemingly his own personal struggles with love. Some of the songs find the performer in a mature place talking about the love journey and being a better person. Other songs are true dance/club bangers we've also come to want from an artist of Chris' talent.

Do You Think Beyonce Is Pregnant? (Photos)

The world can't get enough of these two and their little family. It's the cutest thing for me as a longtime Jay Z fan to watch him evolve so much.  While the widespread rumor that Jay Z changed lyrics to Beach Is Better at the last OTR show the other night is not true, I am inclined to believe that Bey is carrying a bun in the oven.

I try my best to avoid these pregger rumors because there is no way of knowing if they are true early on. With the Carters' history of struggling with pregnancy just before Blue, I also like to walk light on assuming they're with child. I can't resist this time around though.
