Macy Gray, you Iz Tew Much!

Macy Gray has just released a new song (and video) espousing the virtues of her own vibrator....Yes, you read that right! Her VIBRATOR!!

Take a look at some the lyrics if you don't believe me :
He fits like a glove, always up for love,
steady like a caterpillar.
Rabbit from a hat, he knows just where it’s at.
Give me what I want, and I want that.
I am officially done for the day...

Michelle Williams Performs "Believe In Me" @ BET Sunday Best

Our favourite member of Destiny's Child, Michelle Williams (as if you didn't know), is still out there promoting her latest Gospel Album. Hallelujah!

BET Sunday Best was honoured by the anointed ones' presence, where the Diva sang Believe In Me. It's not my favourite song from Journey To Freedom, however it did give Michelle a chance to show off those reedy pipes.

Get into it! It might be a slightly dry serving of altar bread, but it's good for your soul.

[Discuss] Mariah Carey's Voice Through The Ages

When you've been lauded as the pinnacle of a field, any decline in your talent is going to be studied, critiqued and written about. And that's no different for a vocalist like Mariah Carey, whose delicate voice has changed and evolved as time has passed.

[C.L.I.T] Various Dance Music

Today's Currently Listening Intently To is going to be a slight cheat, with me linking more than one video. But what the hell, you tarts are always posting a bevy of videos, so I'm going to do the same! What bad influences you all are!

[Vocal Profile] Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato

Vocal Type: Full-Lyric Soprano
Vocal Range: C#3 - Bb5 - E6 (3 octaves and a minor third)
Vocal Strengths: In possession of a strong, dark, raspy and mid-weighted soprano voice, Demi Lovato is known for her powerful instrument that is piercing in tone and able enough to cut through thick instrumentation [Remember December].

Demi, unlike most "entertainers" of today, relies heavily on her voice to convey the drama and emotion of a song. It's perhaps because of this, she continues to develop and train her instrument. The gains are most noticeable during performances where it has helped to remedy previous live vocal inconsistencies. Alongside this training, Lovato has also improved her musicality, creating a unique, contemporary-oriented style of harmonising that works with her voice and melodies [Lightweight].

[Music Video] Janet Jackson - "No Sleeep"

Maybe a little late to the party, the video for Janet Jackson's No Sleeep has hit YouTube.

Directed by Dave Meyers, the muted visuals are simple. However they're kept from being snooze-inducing with some interesting computer trickery and a feature in the form of J.Cole. It's in no way as spicy a video as we'd expect from a Janet slow jam, but it's effortlessly seductive nonetheless.

Welcome back, Ms. Jackson!

[Vocal Profile] Liz Fraser

Liz Fraser

Vocal Type: Soprano
Voice range: C3-D6 (3 octaves 1 note)
Whistle Register: No
Vocal Pluses: The overall character of the Diva’s instrument is famed for its light, airy and ethereal nature, with a slight operatic touch. Despite the fact that her real artistic strength comes from her tone, timbre, phrasing and the unique style of lyricism, she has also shown some technical proficiency.

Although naturally foggy, Fraser’s lower register extends down to C3, and is characterized by a surprising audibility given her voice type. The voice is most comfortable around the upper half of the lower register, resulting in her being capable of hitting strong and substantial F#3’s. [Athol-Brose]. The tone and volume can aptly be manipulated into sounding either soft [Make Tomorrow], or louder and stronger [Bluebeard].
