Brandy – Love You the Most

The biggest sign that shows I am slackin on my CD purchases? I haven’t copped Brandy’s newest album. **Dodging Tomatoes** I know, I know, my Bad. I’ve heard very good things about her latest effort, Human. Unfortunately, it hasn’t performed the best on the charts – but the good news is, Brandy is supposedly working on some new material for her next project!  On this track, Brandy is staying true to her musical formula of well, just singing. No dancing, booty-shaking or stripping from this 90s Diva! But Homegirl is still making great music! Take this new track floating around the ‘Nets, Love you the Most. Very somber, easy track that showcases Brandy’s flowing vocals over the soothing beat. Brandy sounds beautiful on this song!

Chrisette Michelle feat. Ne-Yo – What you Do

See, I told ya’ll I would keep up with Chrisette this time! Here is a new song she recorded with Ne-Yo, which I believe is her Second Single. Its a laid-back song, a bit of a duo with her and Ne-Yo. I’m liking this; Chrisette is so listenable as a female artist – I would see myself just sitting back and letting her full Album play. Of course Ne-Yo pens another hit! Take a listen!

Nikki Minaj – I Get Crazy *Note: Link may not be downloadable.

I’ve heard the name, but never knew what Nikki Minaj was about. After visiting her Myspace, I was pretty impressed with the self-described Wonder Woman. Homegirl could give Lil Kim Yung Cho a run for her money! Nikki hails from Jamaica, Queens and is a singer, rapper, songwriter and actress. Her Go Hard freestyle (ok, its def NOT a freestyle!) is BADNESS! Also check the track she did with Drake(all on her Myspace), Best I ever Had – song is Dope. Nikki is co-signed by Wheezy and can back it up! Plus, she looks like a video vixen…where Lola Luv at? Don’t think she got nothing on Nikki! Check out a track she recorded with Lil Wayne, I Get Crazy. I co-sign this Chick as well!

ChokLitFactory Exclusive: Is Whitney Houston the G.O.A.T of Contemporary R&B? PART III

 whitneysmile1Thanks for tuning in, now we are getting to the good stuff! Back in 1995, Whitney decided to go back to her R&B roots (her family comes from a long list of R&B royalty) and paired up with Babyface and the Greats in the game for her Soundtrack to the “Black-Women-Power” movie, Waiting to Exhale. Easily one of the most well-orchestrated, well-written albums of the 90s, the soundtrack boasted hits from Mary J. Blige “Not Gonna cry”; Toni Braxton ”Let it Flow”;  Brandy “Sittin up in my Room”; Faith Evans “Kissing you”; Chaka Khan “Funny Valentine” and of course, the G.O.A.T herself, Whitney, “Exhale(Shoop Shoop)” and “Why does it hurt so bad”.  The soundtrack was another huge success, selling 7 million copies in the U.S and 13 million worldwide. This is a favourite of mine.  I still bump this CD every other day. This CD, in my opinion, epitomized 90s R&B and showcased the genius of Kenneth ‘BabyFace’ Edmunds and his partner, Antonio ‘L.A’ Reid.  Some notables tracks below after the jump!
