Ever since Olivia Pope came on the scene a couple of years ago she has dominated the social media news feeds of Urban America.  She has elements of many women we all know and it's great having a familiar face on television to look to.  When Mary Jane Paul emerged on the scene a year or so ago, things got real.  Now that Being Mary Jane is a full season in, and with Scandal three seasons in, we figured it was time to look at the women that are these characters.  Given the chance who would you choose to date, to be a friend to?  Who could you actually stand to be around?


The latest Jason Derulo album, Talk Dirty, is chock full of party anthems and “get hype” tracks. The album starts off with Jason’s new smash hit, "Talk Dirty" (featuring 2 Chainz), which has spent the last sixteen weeks near the top of Billboard’s “The Hot 100” and currently sits at number four. Derulo has brought in many other popular Hip-Hop artists to collaborate on this record, including Snoop Dogg, TYGA, Kid Ink, and Pitbull. 


There was a huge debate recently about the Mt. Rushmore of the NBA.  Choosing the four greatest players to have ever played the sport of basketball proved to be quite the challenge and there is still no clear and decisive agreement on just four. The Mt. Rushmore of Hip-Hop may prove to be just as difficult, but we figured we'd give it a try and see what the readers think.


It’s a Marlon Wayne’s movie what do want me to say? It was bleeping hilarious. Literally as soon as the movie started the theatre was roaring in laughter and I’m not even exaggerating. The opening scene was arguably the most funny (actually during the Q&A after the screening an audience member said it was his favorite part). Co-star Affion Crokett is one of the first characters you’re reintroduced to and he had my stomach hurting early. I’m going to just say that I would’ve liked to see more of him in the film. Hey, Marlon told us to be honest in our critiques. With that said though, the film still surpassed the expectations of a sequel. 


Who would have ever thought a shy girl from Beaufort, South Carolina would be American Idol's Season 12 winner. She's grown a lot since only being able to sing for her parents. Life has changed for Candice Glover. Her Season 12 win is actually her third attempt at auditioning for American Idol. She's proven that she believes in herself. It was nothing short of courage to be able to face many at a third shot on the show to prove that she had what it took to take home the crown, even if she didn't know for sure herself at the time. She's motivated so many to go after what they want and to never give up. WIth the recent release of her debut album, Music Speaks, and her single, "Cried," Glover continues to motivate women everywhere.  Read the full interview to get Candice Glover a little better...


Drew 32, writer, producer, videographer—you name it he has done it. His hands on approach to his brand of music is admirable. From the D to the world, with stops along the way as an opening act for Gym Class Heroes, Kendrick Lamar, and the New Boyz hasn't hurt. His performances at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Music Conference have done wonders for his buzz, and odds are his production going forward will be just as stellar. Drew32 Recently released The Batch, an ode to his fans, and a teaser for what 2014 and beyond hold.  Judging by the attention his hit single “I Am King,” is getting along with his mantra, 'the more content, the better,' the future is very bright for this Greek-American artist.  Parlé with me as I introduce to you… Drew 32.


 
 

 

 

Legendary female R&B group En Vogue played to a packed house on Friday (November 16) at New York City’s B.B. King Blues Club & Grill. Cindy Herron-Braggs and Terry Ellis along with En Vogue’s newest member Rhona Bennett , opened the show with a high energy medley of classic soul cover songs. They lit up the stage with their own renditions of hit songs like La Belle’s “Lady Marmalade”, Cheryl Lynn’s “Got to Be Real” and Anita Ward’s “Ring My Bell”. Paying further homage to other female singers that inspired them, En Vogue performed the classic version of the Andrews’ Sisters “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”.

 

En Vogue showcased their own catalog of hits performing songs like “Don’t Let Go”, "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)" and “Hold On”. During the show, the ladies took a moment to show appreciation to the New York City fans for playing a major role in the group’s success. En Vogue’s breakout 90’s single, “Hold On” was well received in New York City and became an instant hit. Radio requests and record sales were so successful that it helped to propel the group’s popularity.  For over 20 years, En Vogue has maintained their signature style of class, elegance and sex appeal.

Recently, En Vogue underwent a shift in dynamics as two of the original members have chosen to disband from the group. Maxine Jones and Dawn Robinson are working on a music project together as a duo called “Heirs” to the Throne. They are taking a unique approach to their music careers by going independent. “You go straight to the people and they tell you if they like it or not. They buy it directly from you through a Paypal account put it on your page and it’s done", said Robinson in a recent interview with Cocoa Cure.

 

Meanwhile, the remaining members of En Vogue continue to tour venues domestically and abroad. To experience a stellar performance of powerful, harmonized vocals check out En Vogue's tour information at the following link:
