If Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz can help it, we may hear a possible duet on her forthcoming album with British Songstress Adele. Keys recently revealed that Swizz has been pushing for the collaboration, which she says is “definitely a possibility.” 

“I think he started that! Look at this guy he’s like a rumor starter!” Keys spills about her husband on the red carpet of her recent Keep A Child Alive Black Ball gala in London. But Swizz plans to carry out his ploy adding, “And I’m trying to finish it!” 

Nevertheless, Keys has high hopes about possibly working with Adele, dubbing the soul singer “special.” 

“Listen, Adele is one of our favorite artists and I think she’s very special and she has a beautiful style about her,” says Keys. “I think there’s definitely a possibility for us to do something together.” 

In related news, Adele continues her rain on the Billboard Hot 200 charts, snagging the No. 1 spot this week after losing out to Lady Gaga for the past two weeks. The “Rolling in the Deep” hitmaker moved another 114,000 copies of her new album ’21,’ which now sits around 2.2 million units sold in the U.S. This feat also marks Adele’s 10th non-consecutive week on the first position on the U.S. Album chart.

YESSSSSS!!!!!!!! Two great song writers with similar styles. We’re going to get something like Christina Aguilera’s “Impossible” (Alicia produced). The idea of Swizz being on the sound board for this collaboration makes it even more exciting! These 3 are 3 of my favorites!

Pharrell Williams Joins Karmaloop TV

Pharrell Williams was announced as Karmaloop TV’sCreative Director today.

Pharrell Williams, the Grammy winning musician, lead singer of N.E.R.D., producer/label owner behind more than a decade of worldwide hits by artists ranging from Gwen Stefani, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake and Snoop Dogg to Britney Spears, Madonna, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez, and the creator of global clothing brands Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream, has joined Karmaloop TV, the new multi-platform TV network targeting youth culture.

An innovative entertainment and lifestyle entrepreneur and Renaissance man, Williams will take a significant equity position in and assume the title of Creative Director for new programming network Karmaloop TV.

Slated to launch in late 2011, the new multi-platform network will feature original productions as well as the popular and cult movies that have shaped and defined “Verge Culture.”

Comprised of the first generation to grow up with the Internet, Verge Culture is a new, growing multicultural group of teens and young adults who communicate digitally and globally to spread the latest trends in music, fashion, technology, art and action sports.

It is a group that defines itself by ideas, instead of race or geographic location. They are alpha-consumers and early adopters who crave the latest and the newest, and it is their taste and buying patterns that influence larger popular culture.

“Pharrell is, without a doubt, one of the most influential cultural creatives and business minds in America today,” states Greg Selkoe, CEO of Karmaloop TV. “We’re delighted and honored that he has joined our effort to create a multi-platform brand that will once again excite cutting edge youth culture about TV, just as MTV did in the 1980s.”

Karmaloop TV’s President, Katie McEnroe, adds:

“We think Pharrell’s unique creative vision will build the kind of content that speaks to the many diverse passions that drive the young, trend- and tech-savvy sophisticates we are targeting with Karmaloop TV.”

Pharrell Williams summed it up this way,

“Karmaloop TV will once again give intelligent and creative youth culture a voice and a TV entertainment brand they can call their own, something that has been missing for a long time now.”

“We intend to create amazing programming that really speaks to this group and is innovative, fun and groundbreaking. Progressive youth culture is hungry for different content than what is out there now – they are currently massively underserved.”

Hmmmmm, that’s what the word is. I’ve been hearing it since thanksgiving, when Kanye was rumored to have been a guest at the Jenner House for dinner. They’re also rumored to have spent Christmas together… Kanye popped up on the set of Kim’s Glamour Magazine shoot and now there allegedly an item! I’m sure “Courtney & Kim Take New York” or whatever the hell it’s called will tell the whole story! So excited! Never has a hollywood couple had soooooooo much swag collectively, well not since Diddy&J-Lo!

Hmmmmm… KimYe?

Kanye West & Nicki Minaj Take Billboard’ #1 & 2 Slots!!!

Posted in ALBUM DEBUTS, ALBUMS, BILLBOARD, DEF JAM, G.O.O.D Music, HIPHOP, KANYE WEST, MUSIC PRODUCERS, NEW ALBUMS, NEW ARTIST, NEW MUSIC, NEWS, nicki minaj, POPULAR MUSIC, trueclefmusic, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM, VIDEO LIBRARY with tags , , , , , on December 2, 2010 by JupiterDaTruth

As expected, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj arrive in the Nos. 1 and 2 slots, respectively, on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Mr. West sold 496,000 of his “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” while Minaj moved 375,000 of her “Pink Friday” debut according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Both sales starts are a bit lower than initially projected, as some industry insiders had predicted in the early part of last week that the pair were on track to start with perhaps 550,000 and 400,000, respectively.

Nevertheless, West’s 496,000 gives him his fourth straight No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 and the fourth-best sales week of 2010. It’s also a better launch than the 450,000 that greeted his last set, 2008’s “808s & Heartbreak.” As for Minaj, she racks up the second-best sales week for a female hip-hop act. Only Lauryn Hill has done better, when “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” started at No. 1 with 423,000 in 1998.

Also, this week marks the first time in two years that the Billboard 200 has seen two albums bow with more than 300,000 units. It last happened on the list dated Dec. 6, 2008, when Beyonce‘s “I Am … Sasha Fierce” started at No. 1 with 482,000 while Nickelback‘s “Dark Horse” galloped in a No. 2 with 326,000.

YESSSSS!!!!! Both albums are great!!! Nicki did a little better in my opinion but Rollingstone gave Kanye’s project % stars, doesn’t happen often at all. The fact that Nicki’s debut is the biggest selling first week of any hiphop act since Lauryn speaks VOLUMES!!! I’m soooo impressed with her, a whole fan after hearing “Pink Friday”! If you don’t have these 2 projects, COP THEM IMMEDIATELY!!!

Kanye is the poster child of free speech. Somtimes it can come off real f***** up but what he has to say is always real and his heart is always in the right place. He didn’t say that to be mean, he said that because at that point that’s EXACTLY how black america felt!
