It seems that Mariah is not only working on American Idol and a new album, but she has provided a song for Disney’s new venture, Oz. Yes, the diva is ready to get back on the musical scene and it will be huge, miss hunty. Big ballad alert!!
The song is titled “Almost Home” and it wil be out on February 19.
So, everyone knows now that Christina Aguilera’s highly-anticipated (by some) seventh album, Lotus, has leaked on the internet in its full and deluxe form. This is one of the standout tracks from the album and, surprisingly, its not bad at all. In fact, we will go as far as saying that it’s hella hot. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.
This actually sounds better than the original! In Jimmy’s office before the show, Christina Aguilera, Jimmy, and The Roots grabbed some office supplies and used them as instruments to perform Christina’s “Your Body.” (Instrument list below)
Christina Aguilera – vocals, stapler
Jimmy Fallon – iPhone keypad
Questlove – coffee pots with pencil drumsticks
Tuba Gooding Jr. – Scotch tape
Frank Knuckles – Poland Spring water cooler jug
Captain Kirk – tissue box & elastic band guitar
James Poyser – spiral notebook (a.k.a. the “tear snare”)
Mark Kelley – keyboard washboard
Black Thought – paper clip shaker
Kamal Gray – scissors
Christina Aguilera is getting ready to release her make-or-break album Lotus. Surely, the second single off of the album must be a ballad. Yes, “Blank Page” is a Sia-penned slow one that is set to pave the way for the album’s promotional campaign.
However, as much as we love Sia, this is definitely not the track to catapult Christina Aguilera’s career back to its glory. In fact, its one of the worst ballads we had heard by Xtina.
Let’s hope it’s just a buzz single to generate some attention for the shaky Lotus, whose first single, much like “Not Myself Tonight” for Bionic, didn’t garner enough mainstream attention for the album’s launch.
Baltimore singer, emcee, songwriter and poet Maimouna Youssef presents the Brian “B.Kyle” Atkins-directed music video for “Meet Me In Brazil”, the second single from her album The Blooming. The “Brazil” clip features actor Lamman Rucker, best known for his roles in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married? Youssef received a Grammy nomination for her contribution on The Roots’ hit “Don’t Feel Right” in 2007 for best rap song, and made her big screen debut on Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. She has swapped musical licks with such artists as Nas, Dead Prez, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Mos Def. The Jazzy Jeff-produced “I Got A Man” (watch the music video) was the first single from The Blooming, which received the Washington Post and Washington City Paper’s votes for “Top 5 Best Albums Released In 2011”. In 2011 Youssef was named “Artist of The Year” by non-profit organization One Common Unity for her efforts to empower underserved youth. She is planning a European tour for early 2013.
