R&B Takeover Goes To:
Listen to WBLK, go check the Billboard charts and let me know who has the majority.
The Men! They’re doing their thing right now! There have been a lot of comebacks from classic artists from the 90’s and early 2000’s and I must say, I don’t mind at all. I know the ladies out there are loving the sweet sounds of these talented guys crooning us into oblivion.
Tank is making an impact with his new single “Emergency,” Trey is still at the top of the charts with “Can’t Be Friends,” Chris Breezy had TWO singles going, Ginuwine is coming back and Jamie Foxx has a new sound that everyone’s loving so far.
Tank has such a classic sound that just makes you want to stop and listen. It’s straightforward and romantic. When you take those qualities and put them on a song like “Emergency” you get some very happy listeners.
Trey Songz dominated the charts in 2010 and his hits are carrying over to the new year. He continues to cater to the wants of his lady fans and delivery time and time again. “Can’t Be Friends” is a simple song that says a lot. It’s a real, relate-able song and very catchy.
We all know Chris Brown has had some rough times but he’s turned over that leaf and made it shine! His newest single “No B.S.” is sensually driven with a video to match. “Deuces” is still relevant and in regular rotation across the country. Nice job Chris.
Ginuwine is a very talented man and his new music is definitely showcasing that fact. I’ve heard some of his new music and they flow so effortlessly. His new single “What Could Have Been” is a hot commodity on WBLK right now, as it should be.
Mr. Jamie Foxx. Comedian, actor, singer. The triple threat that just keeps on giving. His new song “Fall For Your Type” is a collab with Drake and it surely makes the ladies wonder what, exactly, is Jamie’s type? He’s been in the lab with new people, got a club banger with Soulja Boy, and he always keeps his fans grasping for more. He’s great live too!
Let me know what you think. I love that the men are doing it big BUT…. where are my ladies at? Keri and Rihanna are holding down the fort right now but we need more representation! Hopefully Jazmine Sullivan’s leave of absence won’t last too long and this new Tiffany Evans track will be as big as it should be. The ideal situation would be a comeback from Beyonce. We shall see.
