I live in a constant state of early 90s.
When college rock was good, and black people were still on TV.

     I didn’t think Brandy could make a song I absolutely hated.

Boy was I wrong!

Brandy…boo…I love you.  You are one of my favorite R&B songstresses of all time.  The craftmanship that goes into your records is unparalleled in music right now.  You have the best background vocals in your catalog of any R&B singer making records.

But this is straight boo boo.  I am so mad with you for this.

Kandi “How Could You…Feel My Pain”

In honor of Kandi Burruss being the only one on RHOA with any sense at all (or money, for that matter) let’s get into this. Even though she really does sound like a goat sometimes. :-/

Flashback Friday: The Good Girls “It Must Be Love”

So, how bout I didn’t even know this song existed?  My only knowledge of The Good Girls is "Your Sweetness" which is really their only hit.  This song is sooooo silky smooth though!  This is like if Sade was a girl group who had a New Jack Swing producer.  I’m in this phase right now where I really like seductive basslines on repeat and this totally fits the bill.  

This is why the Internet is amazing.  I would’ve gone my whole life without knowing about this and that would be a shame.

New Edition “Can You Stand the Rain”

I’m about to get into some quiet storm because it’s late and I can’t sleep and one of my exes just went straight up Mega Asshole so I need some sad black people music.

Also, this is one of my favorite songs.  Classy R&B like this just doesn’t exist anymore.

Dawn Richard “Bombs”

Holy.  Shit.  I mean, the video is cheap and the song took a few days to grow on me, but Dawn is DANCING in this.  I am not even kidding.  My own pelvis is sore after watching all this gyration.  

You need to get this EP.  Straight up, BEST R&B album I have bought all year, especially if you like R&B and dance music.  Not techno bullshit either—actual “make your body move” dance music.  This is the worst song on the whole album, forreal.  This shit is so flawless.  

Ok I need to end this post because I am stanning so hard right now.  But damn Dawn.  She is putting in some serious work…(while Aubrey is off crying on the Celebrity Apprentice, wearing one of Rihanna's old Kool-Aid-Red-Wigs.)

Coko “Sunshine”

It is a GORGEOUS day in NYC this afternoon.   Totally calls for this little gem by the real voice behind SWV

Flashback Friday: Usher “You Make Me Wanna…”

When this came out, I had the biggest crush on Usher, or as we said down in South Carolina, Ursha.  I just knew I could join his fan club and profess my love sincerely and it would be enough to turn him gay and be my boo.

Then he grew up, cheated on Chilli, made a kajillion dollars singing about it, and is forever ugly to me.  Some people grow into their features, but Ursha grew out of his.  He always looks like a cross between a turtle and a penishead.

So I’ll just pretend I’m ten again and watch this, back when he was cute.

LeToya “Regret” feat. Ludacris

I like this song better than any ballad Beyonce has ever done, probably because LeToya doesn’t holler at me like I just crushed all her begonia bushes.  Plus she’s adorable.  And she seems more authentically hood.  And Luda’s bars are kind of amazing.
