Wayne Back In The Studio!!!

Singer/Songwriter Wayne is once again back in the studio working on his next studio LP, entitled "StarStruck". The album features production from world renouned producer and long-time collaborater and friend, Ishmael "Izzy" Lopez.
"This album is going to be more personal and raw," Wayne said exculisively to PLATINUM magazine. "I am going in a new direction. Trying things that I never tried before. Talking about subjects that I was once afraid to talk about, or knew nothing about. I just have a great feeling about this project, and I am extremely happy about it!"
The album is said to touch on topics from love and relationships, to hate and pain. "It's going to be something that everyone can relate to. Everyone goes through ups and downs in relationships, and then there's other things that ppl go through, like depression and loneliness, and all kinds of stuff. And I'm glad that I can talk about it and express it through my music, so that maybe I can reach someone else and help them out."
When Wayne leaked the snippet of "Never Letchu Go" produced by the Bakazmen, onto his Myspace page back in September, fans everywhere immediately where joyed. It showed that they were liking the new direction that Wayne was going in.
"I sat down with the producers and I said, 'this is what I want..' I felt like the track had so much emotion brewing through it, I had to come hard, and I couldn't mess this up. The track was way to perfect and beautiful to mess up, so I sat down, wrote from my heart and when I got to the mic, I closed my eyes and just let the words flow from my lips. Whenever I listen to it, I think to myself, I really do sound in love, and like I meant what I sung, and I really did mean those words too!"
With great producers and writers (Josh Hurt, Maurice Polk, and Chris Myers), Wayne is set to soar to new heights with this new album. "I decided to work with some other writers this time around, because I can't do everything alone. Also because I wanted to see where other people's minds where. See what they thought about me. What they wanted to hear me sing, but yet, it had to be something realistic you know? And I came up with some great stuff."
Wayne admitted to finding inspiration to one of the albums ballads, "It Was All A Dream" from best friend Maurice Polk. "We were just talking about a certain situation, and I was like, what if I was to leave one relationship for another one thinking I could get it better, but then get dumped and end up with nothing? He totally understood where I was coming from, and he added his input and we came up with a great track. One of my faves. You totally hear the emotion coming from my voice."
This is set to be some of Wayne's greatest work to date. And what makes it even better for him is that he is actually enjoying himself. "Me and Izz stayed up late as hell one night working on this one song, we named it 'Innovator', We were sooo excited about it too, and it just felt good to be happy doing something that I loved!"

Be on the lookout for the new album "Starstruck" coming soon.

Britney Spears "Circus" Review

It's been a while, I know I shouldn't have kept you waiting..but I'm here now..." That's what Britney Spears stated on her last LP "Blackout", but it seemed she wasn't quite back just yet. It seemed everything went downhill from there. Now, with her latest album, "Circus", Brit is back to claim her throne as the reigning princess of pop, or in the words of Danja, 'THE QUEEN OF POP'; and put the past behind her. All eyes are on her. In the title track Brit takes center stage as she boasts, "I'm like the ringleader, I call the shots, I'm like a firecracker, I make it hot.." She sounds reminiscent of her idol, Madonna, as she moans, “ I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins, spotlight on me and I’m ready to break….” The song finds Britney on top and in control, and there is no denying that as she proclaims, “I’m runnin’ this..” and ‘when I crack that whip, everybody gon trip..’
The album starts off with Brit's comeback #1 single, "Womanizer". She does what she does best. Rides the beat smoothly with computerized vocals and hot synthesizers. From the moment the song was first heard, no matter what anyone thought of it, everyone could agree on one thing, SHE SOUNDS FOCUSED!!
This album shapes up to be a very personal one for Britney, and what is great about that is, she opened about alot, but still made it very danceable, and when you're able to do that, there is no way you can lose. In the Danja produced, "Kill The Lights", Brit comes back at the paparazzi for round two. It seems as if they didn't get enough with "Piece Of Me". If not, they're getting more than they can bargain for. Brit sounds mad. When Brit sings, "you don't like me, I don't like you, it don't matter, only difference, you still listen, I don't have to.." you can hear the attitude in her voice. Something very different for the star. Back in the days, Brit's vocals never really carried any emotion, but with this track, it's like an explosion. It's everywhere. "I KILLED the lights..PURE SATISFACTION.." Britney revels in the chorus. She even gives the paps a little advice, "make sure you catch me from my good side.." All the Miley's, Selena's, and up and coming young starlets, should take heed from Britney's lyrics. She's stating it plain and clear, she's been there, done that, and doing it again..
With this comeback, it seems Ms. Spears wasn’t afraid to take risks. “Circus” is very different from her previous material. In the track “Blur”, Britney sings of waking up from a hectic night, where she can remember anything. She sings, “where the hell am I..who are u..what’d we do, last night?” Another track that finds Britney in a different place is “Mmm Papi” which is very pointless, but yet so catchy.
The amazing "Mannequin" finds Britney in a tug of war with herself. It's PHENOMENAL... It's a fight to the death. Britney goes toe to toe with herself. The track is unbelieveable. Unlike anything ever heard before. The production is over the top and FIERCE, and Britney fits right in and carries it like a pro, which a lot of people tend to forget, she is. She tells herself, “I like it and I do what I like, u what I like and you’ll like it” And then goes on to say, “you can cry your eyes outta your head, baby, baby, I don’t care..” The battle is tense and fierce. You find yourself lost within the track trying to keep up with Britney as she goes round for round with herself. She sounds demented…twisted…like she has a split personality..Could this be a comeback to all the “bi polar” rumors? If so…WOW… and that is the expression the song leaves you saying.
In the tantalizing, "If U Seek Amy", Brit takes a coy little play on the phrase, 'if u seek amy..' (say it fast). It’s very catchy and interesting. One of the surprising goodies about this one is, Britney evens sings a couple of ad libs, with NO computerized effects, and it sounds GREAT! “French fingertips, red lips, b!tch is dangerous..” Britney sings in the Robbie Williams influenced “Lace & Leather” This one was meant for the DISCO clubs. It sounds very Studio 54ish.
Circus is very danceable. Something Britney is known for best, but it doesn’t leave out the ballads. The album closer, and one of the many highlights is "My Baby", which Brit wrote herself for her two children. She asks, "without you, how did i get thru, all of my days..." She was photographed visiting a vocal coach earlier this year, and this song showcases that the coaching has paid off. Her voice isn't shaky and doesn't sound like it's trying to balance itself as it did in songs such as, "Everytime" and "Why Should I Be Sad". She sounds confident and in control, and that's the Britney that we all love and remember.
This is no Blackout 2.0. This album is very different, and can only be categorized as it’s own. Britney made a comeback that was GREATLY put together. It’s not all over the place, and she sounds 100% ready, unlike ‘Blackout’, in which she sounded distant. This is definitely going to put her back on the throne where she belongs. Where we all want to see her.

Recommeneded: THE WHOLE ALBUM!!!!!!! And make sure you check out “Amnesia” and “Phonography” Britney’s vocals are just WOW!!

New Wayne Snippet "Never Letchu Go"

Wayne is back!!!!!!! And back with a vengeance. The singer returns to the scene with his new track, "Never Letchu Go". Produced by the Bakazmen, the song finds the singer in a new place. 'LOVE'. He sounds relaxed, believeable, and confident. When he sings, "I don't never wanna letchu go, cause I know, you're the one for me..." you believe every word that comes out of his mouth. The song is hot and catchy, and puts Wayne back on the map where he belongs. Can't wait to see what else he comes up with. Check out the song.

Never Letchu Go (Snippet)

Michelle Williams Unexpected Review!!!

Michelle can't help but win with this album!!!!
By: WayneDaStar

The album starts off with the Unexpected Intro in which Michelle states, “You didn’t expect me…Did you expect….oh nooo….” And then immediately runs into the club banging ode to heartbreak “Hello Heartbreak”. It seems most would run away from any heartache but in the lyrics Michelle proclaims, “I’ve got a strange connection to pain…I’m always running into danger zones..It cut’s me deep but I’m still wanting more” and in the chorus she belts out, “Hello heartbreak, it’s good to see you, happiness came, but it just lets me down..”

She keeps up the dance pace with the first single, “We Break The Dawn” and then Slows it down with the silky “Lucky Girl Intro”, but quickly speeds back up again with the actual “Lucky Girl” track. Michelle really showcases the unexpected with lyrics such as, “He works me like a full time job, but I love it when he takes me down…”

This album screams CLUBBANGER. The sweaty phasered, “Hungover” drips with body grinding sweat and sex. You can’t help but feel the bass bumping throughout the track. Michelle coos over the track throughout the verses. She doesn’t go to hard with the track, but rides it like a wave. It’s like a battle. Michelle’s sweet vocals and the angry beat. Clearly Michelle comes out on top. Her sexual prowess is in full force, but yet she exudes class at the same time. I know what you’re thinking, Michelle Williams??!! Yep. That’s her.

The title track, “Unexpected” is a take my guitar and leave your ass kiss-off to an ex lover who didn’t see the breakup coming. She sings, “So unexpected, the tables have turned, I’m laughing now, because the joke is on you…” She seems so confident and so focused. Like she’s found her niche in the music biz. From what the showcases with this album, it pretty much seems so.

The album also boasts plenty more body bumpin, dance grooves such as “We Break The Dawn Pt. 2” (Feat. Flo-Rida), a very “UNEXPECTED” collab, and HIT! It’s undeniably great.

With all the dance tracks, you would think that ballads would have no place in this party, well that is not so. Michelle delivers the mid-tempos and ballads flawlessly. Tracks like, the Stargate produced, “Stop This Car” and “The Greatest” hold their own throughout the album. With “Too Young For Love” Michelle shows versatility. She blends in with the pop crowd. The track could go toe to toe with, Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and Nelly Furtado’s “Say It Right”.

The two standout tracks from this album would have to be euro pop transfused, “Til The End Of The World” and “Thank U”. In ‘End Of The World” Michelle asks, “Would you be my lover, forsakin’ all others?” She then goes on to sing, “What if they put me in prison, for reasons that you’d never know, would you stand beside me and call me your wifey, would you love me forever, or would you go?” She asks many questions, and is looking for answers, and by listening to the song, you can’t help but want to answer. It’s a track that stands out in a world full of crap and redundant hits, and would last throughout time. It’s a classic in it’s own right. And in “Thank U” Michelle is accompanied by a beautiful acoustic guitar, and starts off with, “bet you’re surprised, to see me waiting up for you…” Her vocals are amazing. They ooze with passion and emotion. And not just the vocals, the lyrics are on point and she sounds believable. She goes on to sing, “I wanna thank U for the times you cheated on, cause I almost loved you forever, never woulda found someone better….” Note to whoever she’s thanking, “WHAT AN ASS!!” You can’t help but to feel like one if you listened to that track, knowing it was about you….

This is hands down a classic. The production is flawless, and so are the vocals and LYRICS. It’s great to have great dance material, but what makes it even better, is that the lyrics are intelligent and actually mean something. Go and get this quickly!!!

Pussycat Dolls "Doll Domination" Album Review

The Dolls are back with their second LP entitled, "Doll Domination". The girls are women on a mission to dominate the world with catchy hooks and chest pops galore!! In a world where artists release chart topping first albums and then drop mediocre sophomore albums, the Pussycats have strayed far from that route. They have greatly matured on their second album while still sticking to the same motif that helmed 7 million copies of PCD worldwide.

The album will leave your head spinning trying to follow the girls as they "Take Over The World" and "Bottle Pop" with the best productions from the likes of Timbaland, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, and Polow Da Don. And don't forget to mention the cameos. Big Snoop makes another appearance in "Bottle Pop" in which the girls brag, "all them other models bottle aint like mama's bottle.. tasty, if you pop my bottle all them models gonna hate me..." They also bring in the Pied Piper of R&B, Mr. R. Kelly himself and Missy Elliot on the second single, "Whatcha Think About That"

With the Domination theme, the girls take control throughout the course of the album. In the Gold-Diggers, Bad Girl Anthem, "Magic" the girls hit em up and leave simply like...magic. Nicole chants, "and I'm charming, no charm on a chain, don't hate me hate the game, and I can wave my wand and like that now he all alone.." They even get aggressive in the blazin, "In Person" where they tackle a cheating lover. The girls go damn near crazy. Nicole is practically yelling on the track, promising to kick him, hurt him, & get him..when she sees him. This Pussycat is raging mad. She even channels her inner Tina when saying, "around here we don't do things nice and easy..we do things...ROUGH!"

The album is filled with many potential hits, just like "When I Grow Up" such as "Who's Gonna Love You" and "Whatchamacallit" in which the girls sound off on low class homewreckers and wannabes, "Dont be askin' bout my man and what he holdin' in his pants..." The girls have grasped ahold of their sound and took off with it. They are everywhere throughout this album. Sad, Happy, Angry, Sexy...Can you name more?

Some of the highlights of Doll Domination may have to be "I Hate This Part" where Nicole actually breaks down and starts to cry when she sings, "I hate this part right here, I just can't take these tears.." and the Darkchild produced "Elevator". It showcases the Dolls signature style; catchy and fun, but yet it holds so much emotion. The lyrics are on point and Nicole showcases vocals that she never has hit before.

This album really shows that the girls actually matured and gained something from their previous albums success. They took what they learned and put together a good album. They show that they've grown. This album maybe a hate it or love it type, but it can't be denied that they didn't slack up when it came to this go round.

Recommended: "Elevator" "Magic" "Halo" "I Hate This Part" "In Person" "When I Grow Up" "Whos Gonna Love You" & "Whatcha Think About That"

I'm Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know that I've been gone for a minute, but I am soooooooooooo back now and I have alot of stuff to post and blog about!! So be on the lookout for that!!! Holla!!!!!!!

Child Discipline

When I was younger and I did something bad, my mama would go and get the belt and tear me up because what I did was wrong and that was how she was letting me know. Timeouts? Naw, didn't get that. A good yelling at? Yeah I got that, but I also got my tail whooped too just so I would know not to do it again or I would get worse.

Nowadays it seems as if ppl have shunned child discipline. No one wants to beat their kids anymore. WHY? Spare the rod and spoil the child. Isn't that how the saying goes?

I mean come on, we all got at least one spanking, beating, whooping, beatdown, or whatever you want to call it back our heyday, so why so much controversy about it now. I remember growing up in the pjs and if you was in the street doing something you had no business doing, our parents would come right out in that street and whoop you in front of your friends and act like it was nothing. You would cry, your friends would laugh and you would be shamed, but at the end of the day, you still had love for your parents and all was well.

So what is the deal today? What do you guys think? Let me know.
