FLASHBACK FRIDAY: Adina Howard – Freak Like Me

Posted by on Apr 29, 2011 in Music Videos

One of my female readers requested this, and out of respect for her carnal side, she shall remain nameless. However, this joint made it big on the airwaves when I was in the 7th grade, so while the good girls were singing SWV’s ‘Weak‘, the wreckless lil mamas knew every word to this joint and probably had some freaky lil dances to go with it. Not that I would know anything about that, I was a good kid! Freak Like Me is probably the best known single by...

Mars’ live vocals on this one were pretty damn good, check it out. In case you...

Posted by on Apr 28, 2011 in Live Performance, Music Videos

Lady Gaga premieres the first performance of her new single ‘Judas‘ at The Ellen Show, the song appears on the forthcoming sophomore album “Born This Way”. My first comment is on the choreography. While I’m a huge fan of LaurieAnn Gibson, this is what happens when you try to make a non-dancer like Lady Gaga into a dancer. I feel like the moves are a bit “dumbed down” so as not to be too intricate while Gaga sings totally live and...

VIDEO: Lupe Fiasco – Words I Never Said

Posted by on Apr 28, 2011 in Music Videos

Lupe transforms his lyrically superior single ‘Words I Never Said‘ into a powerful new video clip, using his visuals to attack injustices on the political, social and economic landscapes. Directed by Sanaa Hamri, Lupe takes the part of a rebel on a mission to free enslaved/oppressed minds from the propaganda of the media. It’s a little weird seeing Lupe take on the fight scenes, but the video is very provocative as is the song, which features a hook from...
