I love music…

Anyone who “knows” me knows my love for music.  In particular, hip hop, r&b, urban pop, and 80s-90s pop!  I’ll periodically, probably every Tuesday(release day) give u my review of new music.  This week I purchased Keyshia Cole’s new CD, “Calling all Hearts”.  It is presently on sale at Best Buy for 7.99, the sale should end on Saturday, Jan 1.  Here’s my review:

Keyshia Cole Calling All Hearts Album Cover

The CD has very few tempo changes on it.  It starts w/the first release, “I Aint Thru” feat Nicki Minaj, which is a banger.  I love this song.  In fact I find myself repeating it alot.  However the rest of the album is a little slow.  There is ballad after ballad.  Which is great when you are in the mood for ballads, but every great CD needs a change of pace!  It is a great CD, but I think she would have had more success adding a couple of more uptempo songs to the list, just for variety!  All in all I give it 3 of 5 stars!  I think its definitely worth picking up, if are a Keyshia fan!



Jay-Z one of my 2 favorite artists(the other being his wife, Beyonce) is releasing a book!  No, its not his autobiography, The Black Book, but it will unleash some of the meaning behind his lyrics.  You can purchase a copy on preorder.  The book will ship on 11.16.10.  I bought mine today!!

**So I never published this draft.  I ended up w/2 copies of the book, I couldn’t wait for Amazon to ship it, so I ended up going to B&N and buying one on the release date.  I will post a review later today!


I’m Back!

And I’m ready, I’ve been swamped with being a mom, wife, and worker! But I’ve used the time away to finally develop an idea of how I really want my blog to flow. Stay tuned, as giveaways, information, and my journey will be forthcoming. I have some travelling coming up in February, so those pics will be up, as well as many other events that I will be frequenting. My goal is to post at least 2-3 times/week, photos or none! So grow with me…
