RIP HEAVY D

Standard

When I saw Heavy D perform at this years Bet Awards the first thing that came to my mind was “wow I have not seen this guy in ages”. He performed a medley of his greatest hits and proved to the audience and the world that he was still capable. A few weeks later the rapper was dead of what many believe to be a heart attack. Though Hev as he was affectionately called may be gone his music will live on.

Rihanna’s new album will be released in a few hours and if you are not sure whether or not you should pick up the album I am here to help you out. One thing that it definitely sure is that the singer has chosen to go in a more provocative lane singing lyrics like ” i love it when you eat”

You Da One

“Where Have You Been”

“We All Want Love”

“Birthday Cake”

Only time will tell if this album will deliver the number one album that as evade Rihanna all her career, but the singer will face stiff competition from RnB veteran Mary J Blige.

The concert documentary is filled with never-before seen footage that captures Beyoncé’s life from eager five-year-old music fan to a consummate entertainer who is in control of every inch of her life and career.

Many were outrage when the learnt that J. Cole had replaced Andre 3000 on the remix of the song. Even though I still prefer Andre’s verse to Mr Cole I must admit that I am not Cole verse is growing on me. The video is fun and playful and goes well with the song. Cameos of Solange Knowles, Kelly Rowland and others can be seen all over the video.
