CRAP!!! I've got PUNKED too. SEANNIE, you'll get it from me!!!
Anyways, in transition to tmr's review of Utada's album, am gonna rant about this single. Released as Ne-Yo
's 2nd single from his 2nd album, 'Because Of You'
. In an interview, Ne-Yo said that this song is the 2nd part to his song, 'So Sick'
, from his debut album. What's with all the seconds anyway???
There are 2 remixes to this song. (2 again!!!) One's featuring Mary J. Blige
and the another with Utada
. The Utada version was released in digital format only in Japan.
This song is a classic Ne-Yo styled song. Smooth and sultry. This is what R&B/soul music should be like. The song describes about questioning an ex if he/she ever thinks about him/her anymore. I could relate to this song i guess. Missing my ex at times. It's crappy being single. Life gotta move on though. Ok, I'm digressing. The vocals from Utada doesn't spoil the song really. It's like both parties missing each other. =)
Enjoy the song. It's a rare find btw. =)

With 'If This Isn't Love
' released a month before around Feb 10, it's really quick to put out a new single. I think it's a great song, but not being properly promoted. A short review on Billboard.com suggest that 'Pocketbook
' would be J Hud
's 3rd single.
This song gives Beyonce
a run for her money. Much sass and attitude could be felt without goin over the top. Produced by Timbaland
, the beat-boxing element in the song gives it a little twist. Without a doubt that this song is catchy. My only problem is that Ludacris
kinda overshadowed J Hud a little with his rap. But I give this single choice a thumbs up. Being uptempo and all.
At present time, she would be on tour with Robin Thicke
in the US. Which brings focus to what Robin had wrote and produced a song for her in the album. 'Giving Myself
' is one of the best ballads I've heard in years. It feels really haunting, and the lyrics is great too. This song is a classic in my books. =) I'll be really DAMNED if it aint being released as a 4th single. A strange fact is that her singles are released in numerical order as with her album. LOL
Having recently dealing with the loss of her family, she's still going strong and brave despite of that. My condolences to her. Support her!!!! Her debut album won a Grammy for Best R&B album
According to sources, the Soul Seekerz
Remix of 'Breakin' Dishes
' would serve as a single for the 'Good Girl Gone Bad
: The Remixes
' album. A really underrated song, the record companyÂ was supposed to release this instead of 'Rehab
' in the first place. With 'Rehab
' being only a minor hit, I could see this song chart better than 'Rehab', given the promotion and stuff.
I LURVE this song when the album first came out and when she performed live with this song in her setlistto promote the album. And I went to her concert back last year when she toured here. Sounds real good.Â This songÂ sorta fits what she's going through now. =) The Chris Brown incident. A pity. Love the remix too. I've included the Edit version of the song btw, since the Remix album version is kinda long. Enjoy!!! =)
*A Side note* - Flo Rida's 2nd album is surprisingly good. I thought he would be a one note, but he has proven himself that he aint. Stay tuned. =)
Hey Guys and Gals. =) This new section here is Rickified's Rants
. What would it be all about??? Well, I'll do chart commentories, new music you people should be watching (listening) out for, songs that deserves to be hits but didn't have the chance to (underrated stuff is whatÂ I do)Â and flashback stuff too. Please do try to give me comments whether all of you like this section or not. Appreciated!!! =)
Ah, about Lady Gaga's 'LoveGame
'. Would most likely be the 3rd single for the US and the Europe market and 4th single for the Aussie, France and Switzerland peeps. I'm 110% behind this single choice. Would definitely be a huge hit after 'Just Dance
' and 'Pokerface
'. A vid has been done for it. (Backtrack the blog to view it)
Since it is already number 6
on the Canadian chart so far and 96
on the US Billboard Top 100, this would be the Summer hit for Lady Gaga.
On a side note, 3 weeks in the Top 10 on the Billboard Album charts for 'The Fame'
. This gal is going stronger and stronger. This album would be like 'Good Girl Gone Bad
', except it's even better. Filled with hits and single-worthy songs. Let's hope the album and 'Pokerface
' hit number 1 on the Billboard charts soon. ('Pokerface just hit number 1 in the UK. WOOTS!!!)
Remember to show your love and feedback to me!!! =)
