Melt In Your Ears: Triple Scoop: R.Kelly, Keri Hilson, Tierra Marie & Omarion

Tierra Marie

Tierra Marie has been steadily working on her re-introduction to the Urban music scene for some time now. After being unceremoniously dropped by Rocafella Records, Tierra regrouped in her hometown of Detroit before being signed again by Interscope and working on her comeback. On the blogs, she had earned the nickname T-Error for her decidedly failed attempt at female R&B stardom. I support Tierra because I think she actually has a very nice voice and has great command of it. But the poor thing needs a hit badly! In her new song Sponsor, Tierra is singing about her man who is able to sponsor most of the things she wants but cannot afford at the time. Also known as a sugar daddy. I read on another blog about Tierra referencing being in a student-type of situation in the song, hence the need for a ‘sponsor’. Maybe that justifies the basis of the song. Oh well. The song was penned by ATL-based songwriting team, The Clutch. The song is actually quite good, but most of her songs are good. Just not sure if it has the umph she needs. What say ya’ll?

R.Kelly & Keri Hilson

Lately, I’ve been feeling my boy Kellz again. Maybe it was the constant complaining I did about his Mixtape, or the fact that I still bump it in my Choklitpod everyday every now and then. Or maybe it was his official single done with Hot girl of the moment  Keri Hilson, Number One. It’s not the most original song or topic, but it works in many ways and on many levels. This is the remix of the song, that was hyped up on Kelly’s website R-Kelly.com. I was disappointed that this ‘remix’ was only the original song dubbed over a new beat instead of the entire song being re-worked. Usually Kelly is infamous for re-working entire songs to reveal ridiculously good remixes. Cases in point: Bump&Grind Remix, Down Low Remix, Friend of Mine Remix, Feelin’ on Yo Booty remix, and  the Fiesta Remix. Nonetheless, I really do like the original song but this new sped up, trippy remix is still quite enjoyable. Listen below!

Omarion

After being dropped from Young Money Entertainment a month or so ago, Omarion has made good on his promise to bounce back – and in a big way! Now paired with EMI Records, Omarion has also started a label, StarWorld Entertainment. It is a very good look for O. His new album will be called Ollusion and is set to hit stores November 24, featuring production by former collaborator Tank (for the song O). This is his first single off the project, titled I Get it In. Of course it features current Hot boi, Gucci Mane who is EVERYWHERE these days (where’s the album at Gucci?) I’m not a big fan of this song. I keep listening to it over and over, but I’m not feeling it. O seems to be taking cues from Trey Songz and is rappin on tracks now? It’s a different sound for Omarion, but I will keep an ear open for the next one instead. But what did you guys think?

  1. Wow. I gotta agree. R Kelly’s so called “remix” is very disappointing!
