[Review] christina Aguilera - Accelerate

Post by: Diva Devotee
Over the years Christina Aguilera has become more well known for her stints on The Voice than her musical output. This was much to the chagrin of her fans, who really wanted a new album. Well, today she's deemed the Fighters worthy, blessing them with the title of her eighth studio album, Liberation, and (depending on its success, I'd imagine)the lead single Accelerate.

Any good? Read on and find out...

[WATCH] Beyonce - Coachella

Life is hectic at the moment- currently on patrol getting qualifications. But I had to stop to tune into Beyonce's Coachella performance.

The Queen brought culture to the table with the Central State University band. Majorettes were out there bucking, the Clark Sisters were paid homage, and Destiny's Child reunited. But that wasn't all. The almost two-hour set was also a family affair with Solange (who took part in some sisterly dancing) and hubby Jay-z joining the Diva on stage.

Beyonce was throwing an eight count like she was a majorette herself!

[Vocal Profile] Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello

Vocal Type: Light Lyric Soprano
Vocal Range: 3 octaves and 1 note and semitone C3- Eb6
Vocal Pluses: Camila Cabello's biggest strength lies in the intrinsic character of the voice. From the lows to the top, it retains a nasal, youthful and girlish quality. With this placement, she is able to transfer inflections and tics that are present in her speaking voice, allowing for her to stand out and be identifiable whether in a harmony (Good To Go) or over a heavy production (Work). The voice is agile and capable of melisma (more so at the top of the range than anywhere else) [Sledgehammer (live)].

[Review] Janelle Monae Comes Out... With Two New BOPS!!!!

Post by: Montrez Rambo

I wanna start this off by stating that I know there hasn't been a lot of... 'diversity' with the past few posts. Things will change.

Now Janelle Monae, you have outdone yourself! Two new singles- Make Me Feel and Django Jane- and both are bops! Wonderful lyrics, good vocals/flow and pretty interesting productions. However, what I love most though is the visuals she gave in each. They were wildly different from previous visuals and I'm here for it!

[DISCUSSION] Is Spice Innovative?

Post by: Montrez Rambo

This Article may contain a bit of... raunch. But I want to discuss a topic that has been kind of looming in my mind.

Spice is sitting atop the Dancehall world. Many as of lately have been revering her as the queen of Dancehall and she literally dominates the female space of the genre.

About a month ago, she released a single called 'Duffle Bag'. The song was completely different from her norm, offering a trap beat instead of a dancehall one as well as a different style of flow on top of accent in some parts.

[DISCUSSION] Is Tinashe the next Ciara?

Post by: Montrez Rambo

No shade tonight... Just real bitter tea...

Tinashe has honestly become my favourite R&B/pop/ what ever you wanna call it last year, but why is she not poppin' like she could be?
