Pass Or Play? TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine And Tank) Release Video For Raunchy Track, “Sex Never Felt Better”
With a title like “Sex Never Felt Better,” you would think the video was going to be a Not Safe For Work type of situation, but in the video for the TGT single, Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank keep it PG visually, and rated R with the lyrics. Directed by Matt Alonzo, the men can be seen in the video hitting the stage to perform the track for their “fans” (aka, extras) in all black leather as the crowd goes wild. Later in the clip, you also catch a backstage glimpse at the men preparing for the show, and after the fact, dressed to the nines in suits and having drinks with some lucky ladies.
I would have loved to see a little more skin from these men (sans Tyrese because his hot factor has fallen thanks to his mouth), but Tank indulged us with a quick ab shot. The supergroup dropped the track and video to promote their upcoming album, 3 Kings, coming out for the fans on July 23. I don’t know about you, but we were over here jamming to the song, which despite a few questionable lyrics (“I wanna swim in it all night long”) is a must. Check out the video for yourself and groove to the song and let us know if it’s a pass or play for you. Enjoy!
You Really Tried It, Huh? 10 Artists Who Tried To Cover Michael Jackson (Some Killed It, Some, Not So Much…)
Just last week we showed you a few of the singers who thought they had what it took to try and cover Prince. This week, we’ve got a few big names who thought they could take on the King of Pop. While not every rendition/cover of his classics from throughout his career were well-done, they were all a lot different than the original songs, which is step one to trying to produce a worthy cover: Do your own thing, but have respect for the originator. Check out covers by everyone from Chaka Khan to Celine Dion, Al B Sure! and even Miles Davis, and let us know which ones you think were good, and not so good after all.
And of course, the links to the actual MJ songs are included in each description!
There’s not too many people in music who can put out the caliber of music Prince has since he debuted in the late ’70s. And maybe it’s for that reason so many artists, young and old, new and veterans, have tried to cover his joints and make them their own. Even Janelle Monáe and Tina Turner have done his work live and in concert. But it’s hard to outdo or really “cover” the Purple One. However, these people gave it a try and released their attempts as singles. Some to great success, others to some “what-the-hot-hell??” results. But hey, it never hurts to try, right? Check out these cover attempts and let us know which ones were good, and which one’s you thought missed the mark.
*The original Prince tracks (which were hard to find) have been hyperlinked in the descriptions if you’d like to take a walk down memory lane…
Man! It’s no secret that there’s a severe lack of real R&B out these days. But R&B veterans, crooners Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese are fastening their capes to swoop in and save the day. The trio, known as TGT, have collaborated on a new song called “Sex Ain’t Never Felt Better.” And it’s poppin’, in a seductive, rock your hips kind of way. I’ve always felt I shared a connection with Ginuwine since childhood, (We share a birthday.) so it was good to hear his voice again. Really, no one else sounds like him. And as much trash as Tyrese talks on Twitter, his vocals are still on point. Then for the final verse, Tank comes in with a serious falsetto. It took my ears a minute to adjust but it was pleasant once I settled in. All in all this is a great look for these guys and if this song is indicative of what’s to come, I’ll be more than happy to listen and support. The group, which formed in 2007, signed a deal with Atlantic Records this past September. They expect to release an album later this year.
Check out the track below and let us know what you think. Is this a hit?
Who do you think!? Well, this little lady is the daughter of a female rapper and a male R&B crooner who was all the rage in the ’90s (him and his baby hair). Like her father, she is a great dancer, and like her mom….well, she’s pretty! The 11-year-old decided to be a genie for Halloween and like most of her daily whereabouts, her mom was proud to showcase her in her uber-fab ensemble. She is one of two kids this couple has together, though her mom has two daughters from a previous relationship, and her father allegedly has eight babies altogether. So now that you know all of that, do you know who her parents are?
She’s the daughter of singer Ginuwine and his wife Sole! Her name is Story, and she’s not the only one who got all jazzed up for Halloween. So did her little sister, Dream, 10, who went as a ninja. It’s her style since she’s very good at Kung Fu. Sole is also a big Kung Fu enthusiast. Both little girls can be seen sitting right behind their dad and with their step-sisters below.
Watch out now! Dream the ninja is coming for you!!! Who said little girls always have to be princesses and witches for Halloween?
These two are adorable!
Where are these 90′s R&B male singers, you ask? Your guess may be as good as ours, but as a contrast to the popular TVOne hit reality series, R&B Divas, we would love to cast these men as our R&B Fellas.
After releasing a new single this year, a duet with KeKe Wyatt called “You & I,” this gave us a reminder of the R&B singer, who sung the hits “Don’t Take Your Love Away” and “My First Love.
The MTV VMAs air tonight to celebrate the music videos they hardly ever play and hopefully bring about some yearly controversy. The show promises to be an over the top spectacle just as in years past, with alleged drama to come as MTV has practically been trying to get Chris Brown, Rihanna and Drake to sit next to each other. Never a dull moment with these awards, eh? If you don’t believe me, here are a few water cooler moments that left an impression (good or bad, that’s up to you) on the audience and those at home.
Michael Jackson at the ’95 MTV VMAs
In 1995, the King of Pop opened the show. With backing from Slash, he performed for more than 10-minutes, and pumped out a medley of his greatest hits such as “Billie Jean,” “Dangerous,” “Beat It,” “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” and “Black or White.” Once again, he showed why there was everyone else and why there was just one Michael Jackson by putting on a mini concert. His night continued with wins in Best Dance Video, Best Art Direction and Best Choreography for “Scream,” his duet with sister, Janet.

Let’s face it, gone are the days when R&B music would top the Billboard 100 without sounding like a mix of techno or house music. Sure, you have artists like Usher and Chris Brown throwing out a few dance-worthy tracks here and there, but that’s nothing compared to the overload of pop music on the radio everyday (some of it Brown and Usher contribute to). Don’t take this the wrong way, the whole dance-meets-pop music thing can be fun sometimes, but don’t you ever miss hearing that those classic R&B vocals and tracks from back in the day? The “Come and Talk to Me,” “Candy Rain,” “Groove Me” type of joints we used to act a fool to? And while these crooners did talk about sex from time to time, that’s not ALL they talked about every time you listened to them (C’mon Trey, it’s getting old). Sadly, it appears that none of today’s most popular artists are capable of providing the type of classic music we reminisce over, and would rather spend their time dancing in skinny jeans talking about how they’ll “beat it up.” *Sighs* Let’s have a look at some of our favorite male R&B artists that no one has been able to match in recent times. This is who we like to call the real men of R&B Music.
In the ’90′s if you didn’t have baby hair, you weren’t doing much. Black folk across the country spent countless hours in the mirror, using a toothbrush and gel to shape the perfect swirl around their edges. Slick and sleek was the look and no one was trying to be caught with frizzy edges. Check out the artists who took the baby hair phenomenon to a whole new level.
If we could dub anyone King of the baby hair it would be Ginuwine. Back in the ’90′s it was nothing for our R&B singers to really tap into their feminine sides. And Ginuwine certainly wasn’t shy. The only question we have is, was he the one standing in the mirror perfecting his baby hair or did he get Missy to do it.
For an artist at their peak, the shine is brighter than the rays of summer. But the sun always sets. That hasn’t stopped some of our favorite R&B stars from attempting encores to put them back in the spotlight. Let’s take a look at some recent comebacks to the game by those who step to the mic and say that they never really left.
