Rick Ross Remixes Miguel’s “How Many Drinks”

Rick Ross
Since releasing his sixth solo album, Mastermind, Rick Ross has been on a warpath; dropping single after single, and recently, some successful remixes. In order to keep up his intense momentum, Rozay has dropped off another loosie, this time an MMGMIX of Miguel’s song “How Many Drinks”. Inserting a solid verse right at the beginning, MMG’s commander and chief speaks directly to the ladies, who are sipping drinks in the club. It is smooth a reworking, that is definitely fits alongside the Kendrick Lamar verse. There hasn’t been any word on why he has dropped so many quality tracks, but one should never complain about too much of a good thing. Check out the track below.

Chris Brown: The King Of Rhythm & Blues?

chris-brown-studio-electracityLooking back on the last decade in music, specifically R&B, we’ve seen the rise and fall of one too many “promising” superstars. Many have danced, sang and grabbed the attention of women everywhere but none have done it as effortlessly as Chris Brown. Dancing his way into our musical hearts in 2005 with his debut single “Run It,” later releasing his self titled debut album “Chris Brown” later that year and the rest as they say is history. Album after album, Chris reminds everyone when it comes to R&B, he is king and if his proclamation wasn’t enough just ask the millions upon millions of fans just how great Chris Brown is. Five albums, four world tours and many award nominations later, Chris remains number one. On March 9th, the visuals for his single, “Loyal,” off of his album, X,  hit the internet, gaining ten million views in only seven days. Proving to everyone once more he cannot be stopped musically, excluding his personal life, is he the best R&B singer of the last decade?

The genre of R&B has bred legends like Michael Jackson, Teddy Pendergrass, R. Kelly and Chris Brown.  Dominating the genre for almost ten years and counting it is impossible to not compare him to the R&B greats. At only twenty years young, Chris has attained fourteen appearances on Billboard’s Top 20 charts, two NAACP Image Awards, nine BET Awards and the most covenant of them all a GRAMMY for his memorable album, FAME. Distracted by Chris’ personal life, many ignore all the things this multi-talented artist has done for the genre and the impact he’s had on the music industry over the years. With respect to the many talented artists that are in competition with Chris for the number one spot in R&B, there’s just no comparison to the catalog Chris has given us.

Enough argue that Chris’ vocal ability is questionable and in no way does he stack up to artist like Miguel, John Legend and the list goes on. I’d have to agree that vocally Chris may not be as flawless as others however his performances are the most captivating out of the entire genre. Eyes are glued to the screen when Chris performs on any stage, somehow many have forgotten the moment Chris shocked the world with an iconic Michael Jackson tribute. Proving yet again that Chris is the most talented R&B artist in the game.

The visuals for his hit single “Loyal” featuring Lil Wayne & Tyga follows the captivating imagery in his previous single “Fine China” flawlessly.  In his latest video showcases just how effortless it is for him to have fun, perform and grasp the world’s attention time and time again. The content of the single is a tad bit aggressive to say the least but to his fans this is what they’ve come to love and enjoy from Chris Brown. Ten million views later, it seems that no matter what he’s singing, wearing or dancing to the world continues to follow him on his journey to R&B greatness. With another smash single like “Loyal” the question still remains: Is there anything that will stop Chris Brown? Fans can only wait and see. Until then let’s debate: Over the last ten years who has had more of an impact than Chris Brown?

Miguel Wants The “Simple Things”

MiguelMiguel and girlfriend Nazanin Mandi have definitely been a popular topic. They are one of the couples that are attracting attention this year simply because of their beauty and love. The couple caught major publicity on New Years as they were caught embracing each other in a Vegas night club (Tao). They truly make a beautiful and simple couple. With the release of his single “Simple Things”, Miguel seems to be trying to tell a story of their love. The song premiered on HBO’s show Girls.

In the chorus Miguel utters : “She said, ‘I just want someone true.’ She said, ‘I just want someone to smoke with me, baby.’ ” Sounds like a pretty chill life they share together.

Miguel goes on to also say “Lay with me, babe. Laugh with me, babe. I just want the simple things.” These simple things that are often taken for granted make them happy and is now inspiring his music. We look forward to hearing more from Miguel and his inspiration.

Big Sean Gets Taken In New Video, “Ashley”

bigsean

Big Sean returns with an epic new video for his latest single, “Ashley”. This is the second set of visuals he has dropped on the world, following his incendiary “1st Quarter Freestyle” that set the world ablaze. Instead of going after scalps like his previous work, this time around, he is the one who is getting attacked and detained.

“Ashley” plays like a four and a half minute long short film, with an actual characters and plot development. While Sean and Miguel are pouring out their hearts to their respective loves, the emcee finds himself kidnapped by a drug abusing duo, inside a parking lot. Things go from bad to worst, fairly quick, and they don’t ever get better. It ends really climatically, which is amazing for a music video.

Check it out down below.
