by Cherelle & Alexander O’Neal: It’s Saturday and I’m talking to My Love right now, so it is only right that I listen to this song. This song popped into my head earlier as I was taking a shower and while singing I had a thought. It has been a while since I had one of these thoughts, but this is a good one! Groundbreaking Thought: We very seldom have an R&B duet that includes a male and a female. Twenty years ago there were duets such as Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway, Rick James & Teena Marie, and Diana Ross & Lionel Richie. If Alicia Keys and John Legend were to make a song together the track would be a guaranteed hit. Similarly, if Jill Scott and Musiq Soulchild sang a song together, the track would be a classic! It is such a shame that duets are not prevalent anymore. Then I realized, if “artists” now aren’t 100% by themselves, you definitely can not bring whack people calling themselves “artists” together to make musical history. I wonder if times will ever change…

by John Legend ft. Kanye West: I tag it a hit! John Legend’s new tracks are classic and I really like this one! Kanye kills as it as predicted, but I’m going to need him to put that robot-T-Pain-sounding equipment back in the attic! This sound is way played out! I’m glad John uses his own voice and this track is right on message. Why do people not realize that if you don’t call them “It’s Over”??? Real Talk – I’ve always had a three day rule. If I’m dating someone and they have not called me in three days – It’s Over! Similarly, if you continuously call and I ignore…stop calling! Remember, John Legend’s new album, Evolver, is scheduled to release 10.28.08.

by John Legend ft. Andre 3000: I got the ‘Green Light’ and we are a go! 2008 is a great year for music. It has been almost two years since John Legend’s album Once Again made its debut. His latest, Evolver, will release this September. This track ft. Andre 3000 is a slightly different sound for Legend. I only hope that the musical extension is purely due to his artistic expression, and not the label trying to reach a broader audience. For the first single, I dig it.
