justin tim and riri


Riri and Justin have been working together on her new album and she’s reportedly giving him lap dances in the studio according to a tech.  The source says the two have been inseparable since the VMA’s where they got it in on the dance floor at a VMA after party:

“Rihanna and Justin have been talking and texting on the phone nonstop since the VMAs. She asked him on the phone, ‘Are you still with Jessica?’ And he hinted that things were cooling off between them.”

Justin was spotted going to Rih-Rih’s hotel room that night….

Very good for moving on Riri! Justin watch out for Chris, you know that n**** is crazy!

R&B Legend, Smokey Robinson Praises Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys for making REAL MUSIC!!!

mariah and alicia

Soul legend Smokey Robinson says Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys are the outstanding musical talents of their generation. He insists there are many outstanding modern day artists whose music will last the test of time because they are so talented.

He said: “There are some wonderful talents out there and their music will live on. There’s a bunch of them, I can name Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, there’s a bunch of them. I know there’s some good music being made by great young artists.”

However, Smokey is worried that too much negative attention is being focussed on music instead of good artists being praised. “People look at music nowadays and there is far less censorship than there used to be so people tend to draw their attention to the negatives. This is not only true in music but it all of our lives – the news is always so negative, we are drawn towards the negative, so the negative music is out in the forefront of people’s minds.”

blackeyedpeas

The Black Eyed Peas still own the hot 100 but Foxx is gaining at #2, he could take the crown next week!!!

That Lady named GaGa trails at #3 but has already topped Billboard with “Pokerface”, she’s followed Kanye’s promising new kid named Cudi. 

I’m real proud of how well his single is doing. The second one will be the confirmation through. Can’t wait for him to drop something else and give us more of an idea what he’s about

Flo Rida makes a double appearance with “Sugar” at #1 5 and “Right Round” at number 6. I don’t really cut for him but props where props are do…

florida

Soulja Boy and resurrected R&B child star Sammie come in at number 7 with “Kiss Me Through The Phone”… Don’t cut for SB either but yeah…

And here comes the B at #8 with her radio hit “Halo”. I didn’t think this song was going to do well but once she started promoting it came along just fine. She could go on to eventually top the chart with this one…

30H!3 places at #9 with “Don’t Trust Me”

ti

T.I perhaps 2008′s most spun and entertained rapper rounds off the top 10 with “Dead and Gone” featuring longtime friend Justin Timberlake. Tip made sure to slay with “Paper Trail”!!!

I think I’mma end up doing a weekly chart tidbit, just talking about whose advanced, whose sinking like a ton of bricks, whose making big moves on the Charts. Billboard is one of my most  trusted and reliable sources for not just chart positions but credible media concerning todays most popular artist across genre lines.

Here are this weeks Billboard Hot 100 Top 5:

1) Poker Face – Lady GaGa

2) Right Round – Flo Rida

3) Solja Boi Tell “Em – Solja Boi featuring Sammie

4) Dead and Gone – T.I featuring Justin Timberlake

5) Blame It – Jamie Foxx featuring T-Pain

gaga

This week Lady GaGa scored her second number, impressive… Her debut single “Just Dance” rest at #9

I don’t cut for Flo Rida so I’m not even gonna comment.

Solja Boi is a mess but I’m glad someone finally threw Sammie a bone. He’s a really talented, underrated singer… 

All of T.I’s singles have been top 10 hits and eventually have crowned the Hot 100. He killed it with this album. I’m real proud of the King of the South. He’s doing it real BIG before he goes away for a while…

Jamie Foxx cracks the top 5, veryyyy good. “Intuition” is one of the best R&B albums of the time!

magic

Ciara’s duet with Justin Timberlake excels to the top 10, making it the best charting single from her upcoming album “Fantasy Ride”…

“If you seek Amy” advances 2 spots, 26 to 24

Beyonce’s “Halo” jumps 28 to 23, while her anthem “Diva” drops 38 to 50…

Kelly Clarkson’s comeback single “My Life would Suck Without U” falls to a respectable #7 

Kid Cudi makes a move from 18 to 11 and may be top 10 when the chart is updated next week…very good but I haven’t cut for him since those weak comments about retiring… Maybe he’ll find a way to get back in my good graces…

Next week expect The Black Eyed Peas to crown Billboard for the first time with “Boom Boom Pow”

boom-boom-pow

Ciara & Justin Dropped the “Love, Sex & Magic” Vid… I like!

I really like this video. There were a few scenes with Ciara where I felt like she bit a little bit but I don’t think it was on purpose. For instance the clips with her in the zebra print cat suit gave me Jennifer Lopez for some reason??? I don’t know. At times she gave me a little Janet too. With the other female dancers and the pole reminded me of when Beyonce performed “Yes” on her first tour. But whatever right…. To her credit this is the first time I’ve enjoyed her vocals during “Fantasy Ride’s” album promotion… well “Go Girl” was aight too….

Justin Timberlake is killing the game right now and I can’t wait for his next album. Very Good!

CIARA ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL ALBUM RELEASE DATE AND LEAKS NEW SINGLE

cici-and-ash

This new album will drop April 7th 2009 and she’s already started rolling out the singles! “If he don’t love you” has been released to radio and spawned a video. It seems as though she and her label finally have it together. Her newest single is called “Love & Sex & Magic” and features Justin Timberlake who officially has the black vote. He has a new single with T.I as well and we’ve all heard it, great song.

mac-pro-ad

Ciara is wise to wait until Beyonce’s momentum has dwindled a bit but this April drop date my place her in the “I am Sasha Fierce” album re-release which is expected shortly before or after her summer tour kicks off… That could be a problem…

Peep the new single with Justin below:

SO THE 2009 GRAMMY AWARDS WERE HORRIBLE!!!!

Posted in BEYONCE, estelle, FASHION ROCKS, HIPHOP, JAZMINE SULLIVAN, JENNIFER HUDSON, KANYE WEST, LIVE PERFORMANCES, NEWS, POP ROCK, THE GRAMMY AWARDS, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2009 by RJDAMONARCH

grammy

I’M NOT EVEN GOING TO WRITE A FULL REVIEW BECAUSE WE ALL SAW THE AWARDS AND WE ALL KNOW HOW CUTTIN UP THEY WERE…YUCCCKKKKK. WHAT I WILL DO IS MAKE A FEW HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE SHOW

GRAMMY HIGHLIGHTS:

- KATIE PERRY BUTCHERED HER HIT “I KISSED A GIRL”

SHE WAS CLEARLY NERVOUS AND OUT OF BREATH BECAUSE OF THAT NERVOUSNESS. I GUESS A NEW ARTIST IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE WHO CAN MAKE OR BREAK HER SINKS OR FLOATS AND SHE SUNK SUNDAY NIGHT…

- JENNIFER HUDSON SNAGGED BEST R&B ALBUM

APPROPRIATELY ENOUGH WHITNEY HOUSTON PRESENTED THE AWARD TO HER. SHE WAS SHOCKED AND APPRECIATIVE AS USUAL. SHE CUT UP LATER IN THE SHOW WITH A TRIBUTE TO HER FAMILY THAT WAS WAY LESS THEN INSPIRING, THOUGH I LOVE HER VOCALS…

- KANYE AND ESTELLE PERFORMED THERE HIT “AMERICAN BOY”

SHE LOOKED GOOD BUT HE WAS A MESS WITH THAT DAMN MULLET. THE PERFORMANCE OVERALL WAS GOOD. WHEN THEY FINISHED THEY PRESENT BEST NEW ARTIST, “AN AWARD WHICH NEITHER KANYE OR ESTELLE WERE HONORED WITH” MR WEST REMARKED… 

- JAZMINE SULLIVAN WAS ROBBED FOR BEST NEW ARTIST

ADELLE STOLE THE AWARD, ANOTHER BRIT TRYING TO MIRROR AMY WINEHOUSE. WHATEVER GRAMMY ACADEMY…

- BEYONCE DIDN’T PERFORM OR ATTEND THE CEREMONY

THIS WOULD HAVE MADE THE SHOW WORTH WATCHING BUT THE QUEEN B HAD BETTER THINGS TO DO WITH HER SUNDAY NIGHT. SHE’S REPORTEDLY OVERSEAS PROMOTED HER “I AM SASHA FIERCE”

- “SWAGGA LIKE US” WAS FINALLY PERFORMED LIVE AND INCLUDED A PREGNANT M.I.A

HER DUE DATE WAS YESTERDAY SO GOOD THING HER WATER DIDN’T BREAK ON STAGE. REALLY GOOD PERFORMANCE FROM HER, JAY’Z, WAYNE, KANYE AND T.I…. PERHAPS THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT. 

- JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ALMOST COMPLETELY UPSTAGED AL GREEN

I THOUGHT THIS WAS A LITTLE DISRESPECTFUL. HERE HE IS DOING A TRIBUTE TO THE R&B ICON AND SINGING JUST AS MUCH OR MORE THENTHE R&B ICON. JUSTIN MIRRORED EVERY NOTE AND FOLLOWED THE MAN ALL OVER THE STAGE. AL DECIDED TO LET HIM HAVE IT WITH A HIGH NOTE BUT JUSTIN OF COURSE DELIVERED HIS OWN FALSETTO. I WOULD HAVE FELT UNCOMFORTABLE IF I WAS AL GREEN BUT SINCE I’M NOT I’LL JUST BE UNCOMFORTABLE FOR HIM. SIT THAT A** DOWN SOMEWHERE JUSTIN!

- ROBERT PLANT AND ALISON KRAUSS KEPT WINNING AWARDS THAT SHOULD HAVE GONE TO OTHER PEOPLE

MOST NOTEDLY OF WHICH WAS THE ALBUM OF THE YEAR. THE ACADEMY COMPLETELY SNUBBED LIL WAYNE ON THIS ONE… I’VE NEVER HEARD THIS SONG THAT WAS SO POPULAR ON THE WIN LIST SUNDAY NIGHT NOR HAVE I HEARD OF ALISON KRAUSS…EVER…

NOTES:

WHAT THE HELL WAS THE DEAL WITH THE MONOLOGUE, SEEMED LIKE THE WRITERS WERE STILL ON STRIKE… I TURNED THE CHANNEL TWICE DURING THE ROCK’S LITTLE HOSTING BIT, SUCH A MESS…

ALL IN ALL THE GRAMMYS WERE A COMPLETE MESS. I’M SURE THERE WERE MORE CUTTIN UP MOMENT BUT AFTER A WHILE I JUST CHANGED IT TO USA AND WATCHED HOUSE LOL…

CAN’T WAIT FOR THE FASHION ROCKS SHOW, THEY NEVER DISAPPOINT…

2008 Fashion Rocks: Full Performance Review

Posted in BEYONCE, FASHION ROCKS, MARIAH CAREY, MARIAH'S 4TH SINGLE, MARIAH'S NEW SINGLE, MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC with tags , , , , , , , on September 10, 2008 by RJDAMONARCH

This show couldn’t have been more refreshing after having to sit through the poorly executed MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. I completely forgot the name of the host but he was hilarious, a little less offensive then Russell Brand but TRUECLEFMUSIC loves Russell Brand. The list of performers was long but surprisingly there was no Lil Wayne after it was reportedly that he was a go for this event. Guess not, oh well…

 

The performers are as follows:

- Beyonce

- Rhianna

- Mariah Carey

- Justin Timberlake

- Kid Rock

- Duffy

- The Pussy Cat Dolls

- and Chris Brown among others

 

Rhianna opened the show with an amazing performance of “vogue”, Madonna’s 1980s dance hit. The performance included huge black and white feathers, a ton of dancers and an elaborate head dress. The “It Girl” tore the house down with her performance and successfully sate the mood for the whole show. No doubt Madonna was pleased at home watching. Very good Rhianna.

 

Beyonce followed with a tribute to the great Etta James. Beyonce wore a questionable wig that was cool for the tribute but should have been left in its box when she performed with all the other big names on the support cancer research jam “Just Stand Up”. She also performed with Justin Timberlake that night but I’ll share that thought further down.

 

Mariah Carey had an amazing intro. She couldn’t be seen at first but her voice was heard. She appeared from behind a set of double doors opened by 2 dancers. She added a special melody to the beginning of “I’m that Chick”. It was hotttttttttttttttttttt, she nailed a long note and jumped right into her performance. However I was bothered that a women thats been performing for almost 20 years just stood in one space most of the performance, only moving when the climax came towards the end of the song. Great vocal but not a great overall performance. Nevertheless I have to take her off death road and put her on probation. The “I’m that Chick” video will make or break this single so for the albums sake I hope they think out the concept.

 

Chris Brown performed his latest hit. The performance was good but felt too mechanical somehow. That usual energy wasn’t there but he did his thing

 

Justin Timberlake got more black votes tonight when he jumped on stage with Beyonce to perform a few songs in a tribute to Motown. He did well and his voice is always pleasing but I couldn’t help but think….Hmmmmmm does Justin even have an album out right now???? Nope…. So why not use Usher in the “Tribute to Motown” he could have done a melody of some old school and a song from his recent album “Here I Stand”. Wouldn’t that have been the logical choice??? Yea Usher fallen off…

 

The PussyCat Dolls delivered the best performance of the night. There dance routine was fire and they look 222222222222222222222 damn good. This is why I think that its outta the question to compare them to danity kane. The PCDs look like a group, an untouchable force that is made up of a group of girls who aren’t average dancers or singers. Danity Kane looks like a college dance crew that would have tried out for Randy’s show and been cut the first time around, but thats another article isn’t it. TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM LOVES THE PUSSYCAT DOLLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Duffy also performed in a set they called “British Invasion”. We’re officially fans but had slept on her before, never really heard her sing live but tonight she proved that Amy isn’t the only British artist with a voice. I wanna go ahead and give her 2nd best performance of he evening, Duffy article coming

USHER: IS HE ON HIS WAY DOWN???

Posted in ALBUMS, MUSIC, MUSIC PRODUCERS, NE-YO, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB with tags , , , , , on September 6, 2008 by RJDAMONARCH

 

USHER’S LAST ALBUM “CONFESSIONS” DEBUTED AT NUMBER ONE AND MOVED MORE THAN 1MILLION COPIES ITS FIRST WEEK AND SUM WHERE IN THE BALL PARK OF 8 TO 10 MILLION ALL N ALL WORLD-WIDE. HE ALSO PICKED UP AWARDS LEFT AND RITE, AND HAD ABOUT 3 OR 4 NUMBER ONE SINGLES FROM THIS ONE ALBUM. IN OTHER WORDS, “CONFESSIONS” WAS HOTTER THAN HELL AT RUSH HOUR. “YEAH”, “BURN”, “CONFESSIONS PART 2″, “MY BOO”, AND “CAUGHT UP” ALL SAW THE TOP 10 AND ALL BUT ONE HIT THE PINNACLE OF THE HOTT 100. USH WAS DOIN IT LIKE NO OTHER COULD…. AT THE TIME…

SO AS A FOLLOW UP “HEAR I STAND” IS RELEASED. OK WHY DID 600.000 PPL DECIDE TO NOT BUY USHER’S ALBUM IN THE FIRST WEEK OF SALES. THE LP MOVED 400.000 COPIES DURING WEEK 1. LESS THAN HALF THAT OF HIS LAST ALBUM? BUT IT DID HOWEVER DEBUT AT #1

USHER’S ALBUM CURRENTLY SITS IN THE 40S OR 50S ON THE BILLBOARD CHART’S HOTT 200, WHILE “CONFESSIONS” REMAINED IN THE TOP 20 FOR MONTHS

WHY IS THIS?

IN 2004 WHEN USHER RELEASED CONFESSIONS, THE ALBUM WAS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND. IT WAS A VIVIDLY INTIMATE PORTRAIT OF USHER THAT WAS HIGHLY RELATIABLE TO FANS AND OTHERS. ON TOP OF THAT THERE WAS NO NEO, NO JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY NO CHRIS BROWN. THE COMPETITION TO COME WAS AT HOME LISTENING TO HIS THIS RECORD, PRACTICING HIS DANCE MOVES. THESE INDIDVIDUALS WERE FANS THAT INTENDED TO DETHROWN AN ARTIST THAT WAS BEING CONSIDERED THE SECOND COMING OF MICHAEL JACKSON.

TODAY IT SEEMS NEO’S A BETTER SONG WRITER, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE IS MORE MARKETABLE AND CHRIS IS A BETTER DANCER, WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE OUR BOI? 400.000 COPIES FIRST WEEK AND OUT OF THE TOP 20, THATS WHERE.

HE MADE THE VITAL MISTAKE OF STAYIN AWAY TOO LONG. HE HAD A HUGGGGGGEEEE HIT WITH “CONFESSIONS” HAD HIS TOUR, DID HIS PERFORMANCES, MADE HIS APPEARANCES AND WON HIS AWARDS BUT AFTERWARDS HE DROPPED OF THE FACE OF THE EARTH, MARRIED A NON-CELEB AND BECAME A FATHER. THE USHER THAT ATE THE CHARTS ALIVE 4 OR 5 YEARS AGO IS VASTLY DIFFERENT FROM THE BEARDED FATHER AND HUSBAND THAT DROPPED “HERE I STAND” EARLIER THIS YEAR.

 

LOOK AT IT THIS WAY:

- JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE DOES THE SAME THING USH DOES BUT WITH A MORE COMMERCIAL SOUND, ALMOST LIKE A BRITNEY AND BEYONCE EFFECT. JT APPEALS TO A LARGER AUDIENCE AND WITH THE HELP OF LEGENDARY PRODUCER TIMBERLAND HE HAS GOTTEN THE BLACK VOTE IN USHER’S ABSCENCE.

- CHRIS BROWN IS YOUNG, TALLER, CUTER, FRESHER AND ARGUABLY THE BEST DANCER SINCE MICHAEL JACKSON HIMSELF. HE WAS MADE TO DANCE, MADE TO MOVE LIKE HE DOES. IT’S HIS PURPOSE AND HE SEEMINGLY CHANNELS THE LATE JAMES BROWN AS WELL AS MICHAEL IN HIS STAGE PERFORMANCES

- NE-YO WRITES SONGS LIKE MERCEDES BENZ MAKES CARS. HIS LYRICS ARE CAPTIVATING AND HIGHLY RELATIABLE. HE HAS WORKED WITH MUCH OF THE GAME’S BEST AND FASHIONED A CAREER FOR HIMSELF. AT FIRST YOU COULD ALMOST SQUINT YOUR EYES AND PRETEND HE WAS USHER, OR AT LEAST WHEN HE FIRST CAME OUT. HIS TONE IS ALSO VERYYYYY SIMILAR. SOMETIMES I’LL HERE A SONG ON THE RADIO I HAVEN’T HEARD BEFORE AND BE ALL “OH SH** IS THAT USHER” AND SOMEONE WILL CORRECT ME…”NAW THATS NE-YO” 

THESE MEN ARE CLEARLY MAKING RELEVANCY HARD TO GRASP FOR USHER AND IF HIS NEXT LP ISN’T FIRE HE RUNS THE RISK OF BEING RETIRED BY THE INDUSTRY…

(DETAILED ALBUM REVIEW WILL FOLLOW)
