The success of Monica’s last album has J Records eager to get her back on the charts and radio. “Still Standing” is one of the best r&b presentations I’ve heard in a LONG time, a true match for albums released by her extremely talented label mates; Alicia Keys and Jazmine Sullivan!

The new album will feature production by Missy Elliott, Polow Da Don and others. She’s using much of the same team assembled to create her last album!

To be perfectly honest, I really wasn’t a huge Monica fan until “Still Standing”! I’m still pissed at Clive for not promoting “Here I Am” the right way, would have been the biggest song of her career!

Anyway, we should be hearing a new single in as little as a month, maybe less! Monica is BACK!

Jazmine Sullivan “Love Me Back” Full Album Review!!!

GREAT ALBUM! Vocals like Jazmine’s aren’t common in this game at all. She’s one of those singers that has decided to record r&b/soul whatever but should really be in a church somewhere slaying Sunday morning. Her voice is trully a GIFT FROM GOD!!!

Highlighted Tracks:

* Holding You Down

* Love You Long Time

* Luv Back

* Redemption

This are the best tracks on the album. Her next single needs to come from this list. “Holding You Down” was a great preview for the album, great song, soulful. If it was up to me, “Love You Long Time” would be her next radio submission. That song is everything!!!

Her music is so tangible and it’s been a while since I’ve been pushed to emotion like I am listening to Jazzy’s second album. She definitely came hard with this debut! I know the Grammy Academy is gonna be feeling it..

“Good Enough” and ” Don’t Make Me Wait” give Prince real hard! These two aren’t my favorites but they fit in nicely.

I don’t even like “Redemption”, there’s a great message in it but the producton and the arrangement is weak. It’s on that list of highlights because she TOOK ME TO CHURCH!!!! It has it’s place on this album and J Records should seriously consider sending it to the gospel market. Her vocals shine the brightest on this song.

Production: 4

Vocals: 5

Listenability: 4

Writing: 4

TrueClefMusic Rating: 4.25

Excellent follow-up to “Fearless” and I’m really proud of her. COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!

Following the success of her breakthrough album “Fearless” and impressive start to her forthcoming sophomore set “Love Me Back,” Grammy-nominated R&B singer/songwriterJazmine Sullivan will receive the Rising Star Award at the 2010 Billboard Women in Music Event on Dec. 2 in New York.

Sullivan will be honored alongside Black Eyed Peas vocalist and six-time Grammy-winning artist Fergie, who is receiving Billboard’s Woman of the Year Award. She is also the next female artist to receive the Rising Star Award after Lady Gaga, who received the award in 2009 in the wake of the success of her debut album, “The Fame.”

“I admire Lady Gaga, so to be honored in a category that she was once in is such a rewarding feeling,” Sullivan tells Billboard.com. “When I heard the news, I was so happy. I feel honored to be chosen as this year’s Rising Star.”

So this album has had a few different release dates but now November 30th is the date. Her first single is just now picking up and I’m sure J Records label head,  Clive Davis wants her to do some more promotion before “Love Me Back” is on shelves!

It’s gonna be reallllyyyyyy interesting becasue Keri’s “No Boys Allowed” and Ciara’s “Basic Instincts” drops on the same date, Clive doesn’t care lol!

Jazmine Sullivan

Pretty funny huh lol. Very good for getting right back up and continuing the show!

SO THE 2009 GRAMMY AWARDS WERE HORRIBLE!!!!

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…

jazzy

AAWWW YES, IT WAS CLOSE… I ALMOST GAVE IT TO DUFFY BUT JAZMINE CAME HARD WITH HER FIRST SINGLE AND EVEN HARDER WITH HER DEBUT ALBUM, HENCE THIS HONOR.  WITH 4 OR 5 GRAMMY NODES AND A BRIGHT FUTURE AHEAD OF HER , JAZMINE SULLIVAN WILL CONTINUE TO GROW AND EVOLVE INTO AN EVER MORE DYNAMIC ARTIST…

“I’M NOT SCARED OF LIONS AND TIGERS AND BEARS”:GENIUS SONG WRITING AND THAT RASPY ALICIA KEYS/LAUREN HILL TONE HAVE MADE HER A HOUSEHOLD NAME. HER FIRST SINGLE “NEED YOU BAD” IS INFECTIOUS AND HER OVERALL APPEAL CAN ONLY GROW
