I'm Back... Groovin'

It's been a minute, but you'll have to excuse me. The combination of midterms and A&T's homecoming has taken all my time these last 2 weeks. Speaking of A&T's homecoming... CRAZY. My boy Yusuf from Hampton came down and got us into the Kappa party at Greene Street on Friday night. Definitely didn't disappoint. Saturday my boy AK had the realest house party you will ever see. Must have been about 200 people out there, including Phonte of Little Brother and Keyshia Cole, who showed up at about 3:15 AM. Phonte was all in the party, chillin wit everybody, which was real refreshing to see. How all the people heard about it still has me confused, but I don't think I will see another one like it.

This post is going to take an R&B feel because I'm really feelin some recent work by Beyoncé, Brandy and Ciara.

Irreplaceable (Remix) - Beyoncé

The word is, this is the official remix. I actually like this mix better than the original and it's going to be interesting to see if she makes a video for this as well (i.e. "Bootylicious (Remix)"). This is the second remix of a B'Day single without any guest spots; "Ring The Alarm" being the other. I was never a fan of this album, especially her choice for first single, but there are a few hot spots. I'm glad she's gotten the hint on "Upgrade U" and is giving it radio play.

Follow Me - Brandy

Really feelin this song. I was talkin to heiressapparent and she and I both agreed it has a old school Janet feel to it. This is supposedly her new single off her album coming soon. If the rest of the album is anything like this, I definitely wanna cop it.

Promise - Ciara

The title of her new album is Evolution and this track is definitely showing some maturity. Chill-mode track with nice vocals by Ms. 1-2-Step herself.

Please comment and let me know how you feel about em.

I am not the biggest fan of Brandy, but that Brandy track is HOT!!!!

After listening to Press Play, I want Brandy to do a Drum-N-Bass influenced album...
