I remember me and my classmates singing and performing this song for our music group project. I absolutely loved this song! It was so fun to sing and the beat was everything. I know Tha Rayne had a couple more hits but they didn’t go too far in the music industry. One of their group members Yummy Bingham went solo and had a couple hits herself but disappeared. I loved how their voice was so unique and intoxicating. I was always mad that this song didn’t blow up! I wonder why girl groups are declining right now in today’s music?Sometimes I still have that urge to be apart of a successful girl band since that was my dream ever since I was little.
On July 7th at 1:08am my celebrity crush, Frank Ocean revealed to the world about his hidden sexuality. Frank Ocean decided to post a descriptive letter about his other side. I personally am happy for him coming out and being completely honest about his lifestyle. I feel as though so many other undercover artists should feel inspired and to follow his footsteps. I mean we all know Frank isn’t the only one on the rainbow. Discrete homosexuality is very common right now so you have to be cautious. What I cant understand is why he decided to reveal this right before his album debut. Maybe the homosexuality community will buy his album, it seems to be working pretty well for Nicki Minaj.I mean there is no way that Frank Ocean did not discuss this with his label and his publicist before releasing this to the public. If so the record label would have told him to delete the letter. But personally I still love him like I did on July 6th and I wish him success. I just hope he stays away from the dark life of hollywood.
How many of our black entertainers will allow themselves to be victims of the IRS? Miss Lauryn Hill has been sentenced for 3 years because of unpaid taxes. I understand Ms.hill if you were making 7.65 an hour like me and forgot to file taxes but baby you are not me. Everybody knows you cant hide from the IRS for too long. I really think that Lauryn was refusing to pay taxes for a more in depth reason and I agree with you but you have to think about your family. Sometimes our intentions are good but our intentions are not our reality and most of the time our reality is not what we visioned it would be. I love you Lauryn Hill like you were my oldest sister in another life. Someone I looked up to for advice and admired from a far. PAY YOUR TAXES SISTA!
It seems like the music industry is not about music anymore. Its more about the dollar, how quick you can make it, and how long can you keep it circulating.
Stay tuned for my post on the Chris Brown, Drake, Meek Millz, Rihanna love triangle and how this just might be just another big ol’ publicity stunt.
Can we just get back to the music and stop the chaos?
I had to post these girls up here again because they are amazing… I love the way they rearranged this song with a 90s r&b feel. I think as a artist when you do a cover, you have to make that song your own. it’s not about sounding like the artist, it’s more about showcasing yourself through the song in a talented way. And these ladies did just that, as they do with every song they cover. I actually love this version more than Rihanna‘s. Enjoy…
My first pre judgement before watching this video was ” Oh lord another subliminal message video from Miss Bad gal Ri Ri”. But to be honest I really enjoyed this video. The music video for “Where Have You Been” was filmed March 7 and March 8, 2012 in Los Angeles, California and was directed by Dave Meyers. Everybody knows Dave Meyers does dope videos, he’s been in the this field since I was 9.I liked the fact that the choreography looked fun and easy to learn. I applaud Rihanna for at least trying some choreography in her video other than her usual “dutty wine” and I think she looked amazing doing it. Also I loved the different visuals such as the African and the dark vivid scene. For all my fashionistas make sure you check out the inspiring fashion from her hair to her eyebrows which are very detailed. The song might actually take a little time to grow on me though because I actually enjoy “Reggae Ri Ri over Techno Ri Ri”. But I guess it’s safe to say that this is another successful hot dance Rihanna record with an even hotter video…
