The Five Most Notable Musical Artists of 2013

In my first installment of 2013 end-of-year lists, I talked about five musical artists whom I felt were overrated in comparison to the media acclaim they received. This week, as promised, my second installment names five musical artists who definitely deserved the attention they got this year. Here’s my list of the top five most notable artists of 2013. See if you agree.   5.  Arcade Fire This alternative act […]

Taylor Swift Dominates Win Category at American Music Awards

Recap, highights and lo-lights of the AMA Awards 2013

Despite some of the negative vibes country-pop artist Taylor Swift has generated of late with her penchant for targeting ex-boyfriends in her music, her popularity with her fan base continues to soar. This was demonstrated at Sunday night’s 41st American Music Awards telecast as fans voted her Artist of the Year for a record third time. “My lucky number is 13, and so far you guys have made 2013 the […]


‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Looks Spectacular

The Cohen Brothers have a consistent record. They put out interesting work with compelling actors. Their one film a year pace is both impressive and highly under appreciated. This time around the brothers are releasing Inside Llewyn Davis which stars Oscar Issacs as the titular character. The film also features Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, and John Goodman. The film looks quite enrapturing. It appears to be yet another spellbinding tale […]


HAIM Beats Justin Timberlake in UK Chart Battle

This news bodes quite well for a band that was virtually unknown a year ago. HAIM, the R&B/rock sister act who has made waves all summer long on the festival scene, released their debut album the same day as current R&B pop king Justin Timberlake released his followup to The 20/20 Experience—and outsold him in Britain. As NME and Billboard report, HAIM’s release Days Are Gone spent much of last […]

Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience 2 of 2

Justin Timberlake “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2” (Album Review)

RCA (2013)

To say the least, Justin Timberlake’s The 20/20 Experience comeback album was received well earlier this year.  The record sold 968,000 units its first week out, setting a bar that no other artist has met or exceeded since. Drake’s Nothing Was The Same fell well short, selling 650,000 units at retail since its Sept. 24 release. It wasn’t all that surprising, actually; Timberlake and super-producer Timbaland don’t know how not […]

Justin Timberlake To Release “20/20 Experience” Sequel This Fall

For some artists, it’s apparently feast or famine. After a seven-year hiatus from releasing new music (during which he ventured into several acclaimed acting roles), superstar Justin Timberlake made a highly respectable comeback earlier this year with the release of The 20/20 Experience. Even then, we were hearing reports that Timberlake had been extremely productive in the studio preparing for 20/20 and had actually come up with far too much […]

Robin Thicke

What’s With All the NSFW Content in Music Videos?

Back in March, R&B artist Robin Thicke released a music video for his song “Blurred Lines” that raised more than a few eyebrows (and heart rates) across the world. His NSFW video featured Thicke singing among a bevy of topless females throughout the song (allegedly filmed with the prior approval of his wife…but still). The video was banned from YouTube, and was replaced with a clothed-model version, but the “unrated” […]


Justin Timberlake “The 20/20 Experience” –Album Review

RCA (2013)

After a hiatus to do his Hollywood thing – say what you will, but hey, In Time wasn’t a bad flick – Justin Timberlake has decided to get back to his roots and put out an album. Just before The 20/20 Experience was released, the news hit that a 10-track sequel, The 20/20 Experience Vol. 2, would be released later this year (and explains the title concept). Oh, that clever […]


Love & Soul: Upcoming R&B Projects You Should Know About

2012 was kind of a down year for R&B. Frank Ocean and Miguel may have presented most of the best music the genre had to offer, but they didn’t have much help from their melodic peers. Now that 2013 is here, we’ve already heard some glimmers of hope. Thank God that Destiny’s Child and Justin Timberlake entered people’s timeline’s and iTunes libraries with new music. Now that the R&B year […]


Justin Timberlake Drops New Single “Suit & Tie”

New Album "The 20/20 Experience" Due This Year

Just in case (you can find the pun if you read those words aloud) you forgot that Justin Timberlake can actually sing…he’s chosen 2013 to remind us all. A few days ago, Timberlake put out a teaser video suggesting his return to music, sparking a flurry of speculation around the Interwebs. Then on Sunday, in an open letter to his fans via his website, he officially announced his upcoming album […]
