Vivian Green has been in the game for a minute now. From writing for Boyz II Men, to singing background for Jill Scott, the Philadelphia native, Green has proven herself immensely talented. We all remember playing out our own young love lives to the tune of her debut hit, "Emotional Rollercoaster."

In between her first and second album Green took a break from the industry to give birth to her son. Since that time we haven't seen her around as much. Find out what she's been up to in our exclusive interview in the video above.

With a mega hit like "For You," a beautiful cover of Norman Connors' "You Are My Starship," and the duet album with his now ex-wife, Chante Moore, Kenny Lattimore was the man when it came to R&B.

Then it seemed like he disappeared from the industry. And the next time we heard about him, we learned he and his former singing partner and wife were filing for divorce.

In our exclusive interview, Kenny Lattimore not only explains where he's been, he talked about taking a backseat to help Chante fulfill her dreams, showing the strong and sensitive side of Black men and stepping away from the industry, on more than one occasion, to ensure that he was there for his son.

Find out how he made his way back to the game in the video above.

We're back with another season of our hit web series Where You Been? and we're kicking it off with one of our favorite girls from the 2000 era, Mya.

After dropping "It's All About Me" in 1998, there wasn't a place where Mya couldn't be seen or heard. But after dropping her third album "Moodring" in 2003, the singer largely went under the radar, which she tells us was most definitely by choice. So what's Mya been up to since then? Let her tell you herself in this edition of Where You Been?

When Danity Kane got back together earlier this year there was one member missing from the pop/R&B quintet: Miss D. Woods.  In the months that passed since the group reunited, lost a few members, fought, and disbanded yet again, D. Woods gave her side of the story as to why she wasn't rocking with the group anymore. But one thing we don't know about D. is where she's been and what she's been doing since her "Making The Band Days." Tuesday we got a chance to catch up with the singer who filled us in on life after Diddy, her solo projects, her relationship with her former group members, and how she feels about Danity Kane falling apart...again. Check out what she had to say and more in the video above.

Look Who We Found! Nivea Speaks On Being Labeled “Unf***able,” A “Baby Mama,” And Quitting Music

When we hear Nivea's name we immediately think of the chorus "Been so loooong..." from one of her most notable features on Mystikal's "Danger" back in 2000. Though the R&B singer dropped other singles after that time, it wasn't long before she faded from the limelight and people started referencing her more for her relationships with Lil Wayne and The Dream than her smooth singing voice.

Last week we uncovered the 32-year-old singer in Atlanta and got to ask her everything we've been wanting to know for the past 10 years, like why her career didn't take off as well as some of her competition back in the day, how she feels when people refer to her and the other mothers of Lil Wayne's children as random baby mamas, what does she think about The Dream's domestic violence allegations, and does she still consider Weezy the love of her life. Check out our candid interview with the mother of four and hear her plans for the next chapter in her life in the video above. Do you miss Nivea?
