Where is Rockstar101?

June 18, 2010

While looking through the Billboard Hot 100 checking to see how Shontelle’s highest rising single to date Impossible is doing this week,

I noticed that I hadn’t seen Rockstar 101 by Rihanna (ft. Slash).

Usually, before the video even comes out, the song is SOMEWHERE in the Hot 100 but with the video out a couple weeks now, I’m shocked that it’s no where to be found. At least I was at first.
Then I gave it some thought… the song which stuck out to me the first time I heard the album when it was released, and in my mind, this would have been a power single, especially the way in which I invisioned the music video. So when I heard this was going to be a single I was all excited thinking oh yay! Another potential number one single, then I saw the video and my jaw dropped.

That video looks like how a ghetto person imagines Rock music to be, as opposed to some artistic representation of being a Rockstar. Then when she suddenly dresses up like an Eastern European dominatrix, I gave up on the video altogether. Sad to say, worst video to date by Rihanna. Colour me disappointed.

Oh by the way- why are they putting her in blackface? Just a question.


Guess Who’s Back! Teairra Mari

June 13, 2010

Since I participated in that SingersRoom Covergirl Next Diva thingie where I voted for Shontelle who subsequently won the most votes, I have  been receiving emails from SingersRoom with little snippets about artists and the goings-on in their lives. I was more surprised than annoyed and I decided to give a read and it’s actually insightful.

The second email I got was about Teairra Mari’s new project “At That Point” from which her latest single  “Sponsor” the Gold Digger anthem comes. The article made mention of the fact that she’s still touring promoting her single despite the video being banned on several stations. After watching the video 2 things came to mind, 1- she’s fat. 2- the video’s crap but nothing ban worthy… I think people are just on a hater binge now. I mean… ALL songs from Ciara of recent want banning from tv if they’re going to ban Teairra. Meanwhile, I’m actually a fan of Ciara (hey girl) but really she been trying too hard to act too loose and it’s coming across as desperate, but I digress.

Peep the video below and see for yourself.


On Beyonce

February 24, 2009

Well more so on her overexposure. People have been suggesting that being too out there may actually hamper your success. Now, that having been said, Beyoncé Knowles, the QUEEN of overexposure decided that having Bidet and Bidet Unflushed wasn’t enough saturation, she decided to just release a two-disc album I Am… Insane. Don’t get me wrong, I love I Am… Sasha Fierce. I think it’s her best album to date.
However, when she releases two singles within a week of each other, I have to draw the line and say hold up, slow down girlfriend!
She wants to be THE entertainer. I am sure she goes home, looks at billboard and spits every time she sees Rihanna at number one, and that’s a lot of spitting to do, but I digress. So when I Am… In Need of a Sanitarium was released, she had out If I Were A Boy and Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) which I have parodied on my myspace :).
At any rate, both did exceptionally well on the Billboard Hot 100 and of course her album debuted at number one. However, the steam is now letting up and she has out two MORE singles, Halo (one of my favourite songs on the album)
beyonce_halo
and Diva (a female version of A Milli by Lil’ Wayne).

beyonce_diva

Both great songs, but… too much of a good thing is still TOO MUCH! After going through the Hot 100 and seeing that both songs had peaked, Diva at number 20 and Halo at 44 and were on their way down, I snickered and said HA! That never happened to her arch nemesis RiRi. She must have wiped her ASS with that when she saw her singles slipping further below Rihanna’s singles from last year :D
Long story short, B, take my advice. Before you release the last 8 singles you have planned before summer, hold off until at least the middle of April before bringing out a new single. Promote Diva in high end areas and Halo in the sweet heart states.

Today’s the day for Shontelligence!

November 18, 2008

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

The album is finished, and as of November 18th 2008, Shontelligence the first studio album from Shontelle will be available for you eager beavers out there and I’ve listened to the album and it is DEFINITELY a solid album and is expected to have a shelf life similar to that of Fergie’s album The Dutchess. It is definitely worth the wait.

I hope the UK Deluxe version has on Filthy Rich a song she recorded during the initial stages of track selection for Shontelligence. Filthy Rich is a personal favourite of mine, but failed to make it onto the final pressing of the album (crosses fingers.)

Get the album NOW!!!!

Everyone at Superlative1 wishes Shontelle great success and the best of luck for Shontelligence.
