“Rated R” resurrected, gritty, sexy and unmistakably the “IT GIRL”!!!

I love this album, reminds me so much of the harder sh** she was on back in 2009, more hiphop pop type sh**. “Loud” was a return to form, the “GGGB” formatting that made her such a success back in 2007 but “TTT” is…..deliciously different!

I thought we’d never see this Rihanna again, shoulda died her hair blond again so we’d know wassup, she and this album are the answer!!!

Highlighted Tracks:

1. Cockiness (Love It)

2. We Found Love

3. Talk That Talk FT Jay-Z

4. Drunk On Love

5. We All Want Love

These are the tracks that have been on heavy rotation, best the album offers. 

“Cockiness” has Billboard top 10 written all over it, sexy and provocative, radio is going to EAT IT UP! By far my favorite track on the whole album!

“We Found Love” is beautiful, Billboard’s reigning #1 single we can’t seem to get enough of and the video that’s got us jumping!

“Talk That Talk”, the title track is like “Rudeboy” meets “Run This Town”. Jay-Z is perfectly placed but under-utilized, I wanted to hear another verse from him. It’s definitely going to be a single and likely Jay’s next hit. Hope they remix it and add T.I or Kanye, more of a good thing!

This album is something new, neither I or the people are tired of the “it girl” just yet. It’s Rihanna’s time, keep giving it to us boo!

WOW! The b**** finally went in! Lol, I’ve been impatiently waiting! I love Beyonce but I can only take her when it’s 100. All her other videos haven’t really been thought out from this albums promo campaign, except “Run The World” of course, LOVE THAT VIDEO TOO!

This video brings me back though, it’s like “Naughty Girl” and “Suga Mama” all in one, love the song, love the visual, give it to us B!

Drake Debuts At #1, Adele Makes Billboard History Yet Again!!!

“Take” is Drake’s second chart-topper, following 2010’s “Thank Me Later,” which launched with 447,000. 

It’s unlikely Drake will hold on to the top slot next week, as early forecasts from sources suggest Nickelback‘s new “Here and Now” (released Nov. 21) may open at No. 1. 

As for the rest of this week’s top 10, Michael Buble‘s “Christmas” holds at No. 2 with a big 35% sales gain, selling 165,000. It’s a contender for the No. 1 position the week after next, with an outside shot at topping the tally next week. 

Adele‘s “21” rises 5-3 (113,000; up 8%), marking its 39th straight week in the top five of the chart — its entire chart run since it debuted at No. 1. In turn, it sets a record for the most weeks an album has stayed in the top five, since its debut, in the chart’s 55-year history. It surpasses Michael Jackson‘s “Bad,” which racked 38 straight frames in the top five following its bow at No. 1 on Sept. 27, 1987.

I love “Take Care”, the best hiphop presentation I’ve heard since Kanye’s last album, that’s a tremendous accomplishment. Peep the official TrueClefMusic review for more on the album! I’m VERY proud of him, second biggest debut of the year, F*** Gaga and “Born This Way”, that b**** DID NOT legitimately shift all those units, the amazon 39 or 99 cent discount take more away from what is already an extremely weak follow up to 2008’s “The Fame”..

Adele breaks yet another record, this time one of MJ’s! 39 weeks in the top 5 is astounding, I’m happy for her and even happier that an artist that makes real music is having such success in todays superficial market place. Congrats boo!

Rihanna “Talk That Talk” Sales Predictions!

Sources are putting her at about 200k, not too far off from the 4x platinum “Loud”. It shifted 207,000 copies when it was released in the 4th quarter of 2010!

The authorities expected the album to perform a little better it’s first week, given the success of “Loud” and Rihanna’s 2 current singles, both top 20 hits right now..

Rihanna’s strength is at radio and Billboard’s Hot 100! We’ll leave big debuts to other artist…

BTW: I’ve been spinning “Talk That Talk” for the last few days, the review will likely be posted tonight or tomorrow!

Beautiful, surprising, refreshing and brilliant, not quit the mixtape that got him signed but it’s from the same place..

This album is a breath of fresh air, the best I’ve heard from him on his own in years!

Highlighted Tracks:

1. The Crew FT The Weekend

2. We’ll Be Fine FT Birdman

3. Make Me Proud FT Nicki Minaj

4. Over My Dead Body

5. Marvin’s Room

Those are the best tracks on the album, the ones I can’t stop spinning but “We’ll Be Fine” is my absolute favorite, one of his best ever!

He’s almost matchless on the pens but his honesty is unparalleled.. He holds nothing back in his writing, really speaking his whole heart, that paired with seamless production and asst from some of the industries brightest (Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, BirdMan, The Weekend) all make this album one of the best I’ve ever reviewed. 

I doubted him, was really disappointed, underwhelmed with “Thank Me Later” but this is Drake, stripped, transparent, sincere…

Chris Brown Announces “FORTUNE” New Album & Release Details!!!

Posted in ALBUMS, CHRIS BROWN, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on November 17, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth


R&B crooner Chris Brown is planning to release the latter half of his F.A.M.E & FORTUNE project in spring 2012. According to a tweet from Jive Records France, the “Look At Me Now” hitmaker will issue ‘FORTUNE’ in March 2012.

F.A.M.E set a new bar for Brown, landing him his first Billboard 200 number one album and going Gold after three weeks. ‘FORTUNE’ has a good start to giving Brown new career highs, with the single “Strip” already making noise at radio.

Outside of “Strip,” Brown is also gearing up to release another single. He recently tweeted about a possible next selection stating, “”I’m also really excited about the release of my single titled ‘BIGGEST FAN’ produced by the RUNNERS!”

Source: SingersRoom

YES!!!! Don’t know why I’m so excited because , “F.A.M.E” was JUST LIKE “Graffiti” but  masked with hard nosed, r&b/hiphop singles featuring some the industry’s most colorful characters. In actuality, the album was NOTHING like the singles he sent to radio. “Deuces” and “Look At Me Now” are his best work and make the rest of the album sound like the same pop sh** he’s been doing since his second album… 

“FORTUNE” is an opportunity for him to show us there’s more where those songs came from, that he’s not just a pop artist, using hiphop to push his album.. I have high hopes!

Vocally, he’s superior to just about every other dude currently recording r&b. He’s a great dancer and enterainer but he’ll need more tracks like “Deuces” to be labeled iconic, to be truly memorable. Goodluck bro..

Trey Songz Suing Reality TV Star Over “Yupppp”…

Posted in ALBUMS, BITCHASSNESS, BUSINESS!, FOOLERY, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , on November 17, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth

R&B crooner Trey Songz is in the midst of a legal battle with reality TV star Dave Hester over the usage of the singer’s “Yuuup” signature catchphrase.

According to reports, Hester (of the A&E series “Storage Wars”) was served with a “cease and desist” from the singer’s lawyer, ordering him to immediately stop uttering the word during the show. Songz is also requesting that Hester stop selling merchandising that displays the “Yuuup” slogan that Songz has claimed to be his signature sound since 2009.

In response, Hester has filed suit against the R&B star, arguing that Trey’s usage of the word is very different from the way he says it. According to Hester’s lawsuit, he claims that Songz’ version “resembles an animal-like or non-human squeal which begins with a distinct ‘yeeee’ sound before finishing with a squeal-like ‘uuuup’ sound.”

The court documents continue to explain that Songz’ version is “distinct and different from Hester’s more monosyllabic sounding guttural auction bidding phrase … which is meant to convey the meaning of ‘yes.’ ” In other words, Hester’s use of the phrase is simply his way of saying “yes,” unlike Songz.

Hester is seeking unspecified damages and a court order preventing Songz from interfering with his usage of the phrase, which Hester claims to have trademarked back in September.

Wow….really? I guess it’s a legitimate argument but when did Trey Songz buy the rights to “yuppp”?? From what I know about the situation, Hester’s use of the word is totally different and NO ONE drew ANY comparisons to Trey’s…

Drake Elbowed In The Face By Chris Brown???

Posted in ALBUMS, CHRIS BROWN, drake, FOOLERY, HIPHOP, NEW ALBUMS, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, RUMORS, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on November 16, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth

Drake is denying a story by DJ Whoo Kid that Chris Brown elbowed him in the face during an altercation.

DJ Whoo Kid told UK radio personality Tim Westwood last week that Drake caught an elbow to the face from R&B star Chris Brown.

Whoo Kid said he believed the fight was for  Drizzy being involved with Breezy’s ex, Rihanna.

However, in an interview with The Daily Beast, the Toronto-native said that incident never happened.

“I respect Chris Brown,” he said. “I’d like to call myself a friend—I don’t know if I’m allowed to do that,” but I definitely didn’t get elbowed in my face. Somebody would’ve got knocked the f*ck out.”

Source: HipHopWired

Lol………. Really Drake??? You probably woulda got knocked the f*** out! Chris is a crazy muhf*****, we all know that and we all saw you all extra proper at the Grammy Awards back in February with your mom talking like a Yale student….

I don’t think this happened, there’s no way it JUST NOW be leaking, no way in hell but we all know Chris still has his panties in a bunch over Rihanna..

Frank Ocean Opens Up About Debut Album, Won’t Feature Mr West!

Posted in ALBUMS, BEYONCE, DEF JAM, FRANK OCEAN, KANYE WEST, NEW ALBUMS, NEW ARTIST, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , on November 16, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth

Famed R&B singer/songwriter Frank Ocean has been busy in the studio recording his Def Jam debut, serving as a follow-up to his critically acclaimed mixtape, ‘nostalgia, ULTRA.’ In a recent interview with BBC 1xtra’s Zane Lowe, the Odd Future crooner revealed exclusive details about the current process of the project.

“The record’s written, we’re just trying to tie up all the production. Get everything sonically pleasing to me, the director of this film,” he said. “It’s been cool working on it. I take my time, for better or for worse. I’m excited to share and perform them. When I started writing this record, that’s one of the things I said. I was like, this record, I want to be able to perform well, to transition to stage well.”

Having worked with the likes of John Legend, Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Kanye West, it should be no doubt for fans to expect an all star-studded line-up for the album. However, Ocean has made it clear that super producer Kanye West will not be involved with the LP.

“I’ll be candid about that. I told [Kanye], as much as I want to work with you – I’m not going to say he wants to work with me so bad – but I’m a big fan. He’s a big influence on my music. I told him, ‘As much as I want to work with you, I kind of want to do this without you. I kind of want to do it on my own.’

“I worked with one producer, who I don’t know, I just found some random synergy with, a producer named Malay,” he continued. “We worked for the first couple of days and did some crazy feeling songs.”

Currently, there is no set release date for the as-of-yet untitled album. He is set to perform tonight at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles.

To be perfectly honest, I slept on FrankO until I found out he was working on “4” with Beyonce and her team.. The result was not just one of the best tracks on the album but one of the best records of Beyonce’s career. I’ve never heard her convey that much emotion, that much honesty…

After that I was curious about this Frank Ocean, this song-writer I kept hearing the industry talk about but never bothered to listen..

When this album comes up, I’ll be listening. Everything I’ve heard thus far has been all about thought provoking, story telling lyrics, paired with one of the best new voices in r&b.

I don’t know how I feel about him leaving Mr West off the debut, not wise but he might be just fine on his own. Sometimes things like this are better done that way.. Goodluck bro!

MJB & Beyonce Collaborating On New Album!!!

Mary J. Blige recently made her way to London and stopped by UK’s Kiss FM to talk with Clara about herupcoming album ‘My Life… The Journey Continues (Act I)’ due out November 21st. The two talk about the lead single “25/8″ off of the project and its meaning, as well as how the album compares to its prequel ‘My Life.’

They also talk about the star-studded line-up that she recruited for the project, including Drake, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, amongst others, and why she reached out to these specific artists. Another big feature and highly-anticipated song is the Beyonce feature, and Mary J reveals how that song came into fruition.

“Well the thing is, we didn’t get a chance to work together,” Mary explains. “The song came from Beyonce. She gave me the song. She sent the song through her people, and her vocals were completely on the song. I’m like, ‘Okay what does this mean?’ The song was so crazy. I was like, ‘Are you playing?! Is this for me?’ They were like, ‘Yeah this is for you!’ I was like, ‘Well why doesn’t she want it?!’ because the song was so crazy. They were like, ‘Well she wants to stay on it’ and I was like ‘Cool!’ It doesn’t get any better than that. I love Beyonce. She inspires me. It was a blessing to have her on the record.”

I love it! B’s vocals are stronger, crisper then MJB’s but The Queen of HipHop Soul is more then capable. I can’t wait to hear this track, just hope it doesn’t get looked over like her 2009 duet with Alicia Keyes, great song, video shot and everything but for some reason we never got to see it…..

Adele Announces “21’s” Third Single!!!

Multi-platinum selling songstress Adele is ready to continue building on the success of her ‘21’ album with her next single – “Set Fire to the Rain.”

Originally, it was expected that the next single would be “Rumour Has It,” but her label decided to capitalize on the huge success of “Set Fire to the Rain,” according to Billboard.

“Our research found more programmer preference for ‘Set Fire to the Rain’,” says Columbia Sr. VP/promotion-adult formats Pete Cosenza. “Both ‘Rumour’ and ‘Fire’ came back strong, but ‘Fire’ was a bit stronger.”

He continues, “It’s a better plan to go with ‘Fire’ over ‘Rumour’ at pop and adult radio. Everyone, from radio to the buying public, seems to be on board.”

To date, “Set Fire to the Rain” has already peaked at #72 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single will go for radio adds at adult pop, adult contemporary and triple A on November 21st, followed by a push to pop radio in December.

Recently, Adele underwent surgery due to a vocal cord hemorrhage. The British singer is expected to make a full recovery.

I’m cool with the song and frankly, the album is crammed with single options but I was really hoping the next radio submission would be “I’ll Be Waiting”, arguably my favorite song from the LP!

Adele really went in on this album, one of the best of the year, she’s a shoe in at the 2012 Grammy Awards for all the top honors!

It seems Pop princess Rihanna will continue to dominate the charts. On the heels of her eleventh number one single with “We Found Love,” the 23-year-old has unleashed the track listing for her forthcoming sixth studio album ‘Talk That Talk.’ 

The new LP will arrive in stores November 21 and currently it is unclear if Rihanna will feature any other artists. Originally, RiRi planned to re-release her 2010 Loud album, which would include additional songs. However she announced on her Twitter that she would release a whole new album, insisting her fans deserved something new and fresh. 

Check out the below ‘Talk That Talk’ track listing been released via RiRi’s Facebook.

The album is going to be EPIC, crammed with more #1’s and top 10 singles like all her other LPs but one question remains… Will Rihanna finally debut at #1??? Her last 5 albums have slain radio and the charts but have failed to top the Billboard 200… 

Matters not, as long as she keeps giving us that grade A pop, that shit for the cars and the clubs we can’t seem to get enough of, 11#1 singles, WE LOVE U RIRI #RihannaNavy

Monica recently announced that she and the label want to take a minute to restructure the project, I.E, record some hot sh** since the songs she sent to radio and made videos for aren’t making moves. 

I know she’s got it in her, “Still Standing” is one of the best r&b albums I’ve heard in a while so I know with a little more time she can give us a single that’ll ignite urban radio like 2010’s “Everything To Me”!

As of right now the album has been pushed back to February 21st, 2012!

Drake is getting a hand from his superstar friends on his sophomore album Take Care (out November 15).

Monica Pushes “New Life” Album Back!!!

Posted in ALBUMS, MONICA, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, R&B, RNB, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , on November 4, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth

Eager fans that were waiting to get their hands on a copy of Monica’s upcoming 7th studio album, ‘New Life,’ will have to wait a little longer. The R&B songstress recently announced the delay of the project, insisting she needs to “restructure.” 

“I wanna thank u for your love, dedication & support. RCA & I are restructuring the entire plan for the album & the entire movement,” Monica writes on Twitter. 

Keeping fan’s spirits alive that the album will be released in the future, she adds: “All is STILL IN MOTION…I Love u guys… NEW LIFE coming soon, pls continue to request Until It’s Gone at radio & video outlets. Be Blessed.” 

On ‘New Life,’ which has already issued the singles “Anything (to Find You),” produced by Missy Elliot and “Until It’s Gone,” Monica plans to re-visit the early part of her career, including 1995 single, “Why I Love You So Much,” to capture the feeling and sincerity for her new music. 

The project will also creatively reflect the musical, professional and personal growth Monica has recently experienced, including being a mother of two and new wife of L.A. Lakers star, Shannon Brown. 

News of the project’s delay come on the heels of pregnancy rumors, but for now, that’s just rumors.

Source: SingersRoom

I’m not surprised.. Niether of the singles are doing sh** at radio or on the chart. She should have delivered a stronger video for “Anything To Find You” and “Until It’s Gone” should never have seen the light of day. Niether singles match her strongest from “Still Standing” and that’s the real problem here…

Hopefully she’s going to hit the studio and record some material that matches that of the previous album. With no reality show or breakout hit like “Everything To Me” this album would have tanked! Smart move Clive!

Whether a possible pregnancy played a role in the push back in un-confirmed but once I find out, I’ll let you know!

Rihanna Tops Billboard’s Hot 100…yet AGAIN!!!!!

Posted in ALBUMS, DEF JAM, NEW ALBUMS, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, RIHANNA, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , , on November 3, 2011 by JupiterDaTruth

Rihanna rises to her 11th No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, as “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, ascends 2-1 with Airplay Gainer honors in its sixth week on the survey. 

Rihanna is just the seventh artist in the Hot 100’s 53-year history to tally at least 11 leaders, joining the Beatles (20), Mariah Carey (18), Michael Jackson (13), Madonna (12), the Supremes (12) and Whitney Houston(11). She passes Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder, each with 10 No. 1s. 

Among women, Rihanna, thus, moves into a third-place tie with Houston for most toppers, after only Carey and Madonna. 

“Found,” the lead single from “Talk That Talk,” due Nov. 21, spends a second week at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart with 243,000 downloads sold, up 5%, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The weekly sum pushes the song past a million in release-to-date digital sales (1,057,000), marking Rihanna’s 20th download to reach the million-selling milestone, extending her record for the most such downloads among women.Eminem‘s “Love the Way You Lie,” on which she guests, is her best-selling digital song (5.1 million), followed by her top-selling title as a lead act, “Disturbia” (4.3 million).

She’s a f**** ICON! Anyone trying to dispute that is a dumba** at this point! All the legends mentioned in this Billboard post along with Rihanna. Numbers are the only things that matter, that count because they don’t lie…. She’s not the best singer or dancer but b**** CAN MAKE A RECORD LIKE NO ONE ELSE!!! 11 #1 singles in 7 years is BANANAS!!!

Congrats Riri!!!

Amy Winehouse New Album Slated For 12.1.11!!!

A new album from the late Amy Winehouse featuring never-before-heard songs will arrive in time for the Holiday Season. 

Winehouse was hard at working on her third studio offering before passing in July 2011 of alcohol poisoning at 27 years old. It was unclear if the posthumous album would be released but now it’s been confirmed for December 1, 2011. 

“I spent so much time chasing after Amy – telling her off – that I never realized what a true genius she was,” Winehouse’s father Mitch says about his daughter’s music. “It wasn’t until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of her talent. From jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it took my breath away.” 

Entitled ‘Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures,’ the set will include unreleased materials as well as cover versions of classic songs. $1 dollar from the sale of every CD will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which aims to help young people in Britain and abroad with problems including ill-health, disability and addiction.

YESSS!!!! I was so worried they weren’t going to let us taste the fruit all the recording sessions she’s had since 07! This album is going to be epic, just hate that we’ll never see another video or live performance from this creative genius, from this icon…

R.I.P Amy!
