more about “Floetry ft. Common – Supastar“, posted with vodpod

I stumbled yesterday on this music video featuring one of the most talented duo Floetry and one of the most talented rapper Common.Awesome performance,the beginning kind of reminded me of Jigga’s “ Song Cry”.I still can’t believe the duet broke up, their collective energy is so infectious through the computer screen.

Apparently,Nathalie Stewart’s departure is due to extreme personal reasons.I guess they’re dating and the relationship went hell thus make it almost impossible for them to sing together. Meanwhile Marsha Ambrosius showed off her solo skills on a new EP, which includes a duet with soul crooner Glenn Lewis. It’s cool but unfortunately lacks Floetry’s unique flavor we were used to.

Honestly, she should have been stayed with that god damn girl no matter how huge the mess was.She just proved by releasing her album that going solo aint really for her.When you hear the garbage (Beyonce, Ashanti or any other pseudo soul/ Rnb singer)which is being served to us on a daily basis you could only be sad and hoping deep in your heart that one day they’ll be back together because aint nothing touching Floetry !

Tupac Interview 1998

December 14, 2009

I was actually suprised to see this side of Tupac when I first saw this footage but it also made me feel happy that someone who could appear to be sensitive & fragile could turn into such a Strong Revolutionnary Icon.

Mary J Blige – I Am

December 9, 2009

The official video for “I Am” debuted this morning.The Stargate-produced song, co-written by Blige and Johnta Austin, is the second single from Mary’s forthcoming album Stronger With Each Tear (out December 21st)

Meanwhile the mid century style house where Mary sings beautifully “Ain’t nobody gonna treat you better” in the music video is simply gorgeous, the landscape sounds more to Switzerland than any state in the US.If you have any information about the house location or the architect, please let me know.

Vevo.com sending to Hell MTV [Media War]

December 9, 2009

Singer Rihanna attends the launch of VEVO, the world’s premiere destination for premium music video and entertainment at Skylight Studio on December 8, 2009 in New York City.


An advertising blitz by Vivendi’s Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainement, two music giants alon with Abu Dhabi Media Co. hoping that their new website, Vevo.com, will finally send to hell any idea that MTV is a place for top flight videos.The idea is to create an MTV for the digital age, a music site where all the latest and archived videos can be found.

As music companies are loosing revenues and profits at a rapid tick due to the combined impact of falling sales CDs, online piracy and the lack of creativity.Recording companies are experimenting with new ways of distributing their music online through ventures such as VeVo.It will show videos for free, supported by ads.While Google Inc’s Youtube has been an important music discovery tool fro the record companies, it has failed to attract premium advertising dollars.But Vevo just landed the sort of blue-chip brands that have shied away from Youtube because of the high production avlue of the videos, and the top flight artists they feature.

Indeed, Vevo launched with the support of nearly 20 new advertising partnerships, including names like McDonald’s Corp, MasterCard Inc, AT& T Inc. and Nissan Motor Co.’s Infiniti brand of luxury cars.These advertisers will pay a near premium rate around of $20 to $45 for every 1,000-page views, Vevo Chief executive  Rio Caraeff said in the interview.

Over the next year , as current licensing deals expire , Vevo’s player will gradually replace online videos that are on artist Web sites and other online destination such as AOL.The Vevo Web site and player will also have links to allow viewers to buy songs from Amazon.com or Apple Inc.’s iTunes.Links to artist merchandise will point to Bravado, Universal’s online retailing company.
