Anoop Desai Covers Usher’s ‘Climax’

A fan of usher’s single “Climax,” Anoop Desai has decided to cover it and…I prefer it to the original.

For those who don’t recognize the name Anoop Desai, he is the North Carolina native who was featured on American Idol and called Anoop Dogg by Randy Jackson.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Engaged!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie confirm that they are engaged! Shocked? I know I am.

The news was confirmed by Brad Pitt’s spokeswoman Cynthia Pett-Dante; she said, “Yes, it’s confirmed. It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There’s no date set at this time.” The couple have three children together, three adopted and three there own.

The couple first linked up in 2005 and Angelina is allegedly the reason why Brad divorced his then-wife Jennifer Aniston. The couple did not confirm their relationship till 2006 when Angelina revealed she was pregnant with Brad’s baby.

Brad has been quoted saying that he would not wed Angelina till gay marriage is legalized in the nation. It seems like the six kids got the better of their parents pushing them to take the next step.

In a past interview, Brad stated, “It (marriage) seems to mean more and more to our kids. We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it ’til everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out. It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment … But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to it is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”

Angelina has already been spotted wearing a large diamond ring. Robert Procop worked with Brad to build the ring. Procop’s official comment about the ring was, “The full creative journey – from conception to completion – took a year, with Brad Pitt waiting until the perfect moment to unveil this special jewel to Angelina Jolie.”

Rumor has it that the couple is planning a ceremony in France in February.

Video: Jessie J and David Guetta See a ‘Flashing Light’

It’s a trend, once you hit a peak in your career, David Guetta produces you a track. Nicki Minaj and Usher are just a couple of artists who have done it. Joining that club is Jessie with her new song “Laserlight.”

The U.K. native took the States by storm with “Price Tag” featuring BoB before she released “Domino” which is all over the radio! “Laserlight” is a typical production by Guetta and Jessie J sounds fantastic. Jessie is keeping up with the trends and has her token dance record now, I want her to go back to her raw, eclectic vibe.

and yes vitamin water…I saw your product placement

Video: Drake Will ‘Take Care’ of Rihanna

Drake and Rihanna have a romantic history, but they’ve moved past their relationship and now keep it strictly business. This business relationship results in hit singles time and time again, for now we focus on “Take Care” for which the duo has just released the music video.

“Take Care” which is taken from Drake’s sophomore album which was released in November 2011. The song was well received by critics. Not only did Drake present a song with content, but Rihanna also shines in her feature. “Take Care” is a cover of Gil Scott-Heron’s “I’ll Take Care Of You” produced by Jamie xx.

With a more powerful song, Drake chose to do an equally strong video, which includes great imagery. Video director Yoann Lemoine told MTV News the video was “very minimal.” He also said, “”There’s a lot of space in the video and I wanted the visuals to pay tribute to that. It pays tribute to nature. When I listened to the track, I was seeing a landscape … involving animals and massive landscapes.”

I like the unpredictable video, use of icy colors and shots and commend Drake on trying something different.

Video: Nicki Minaj ‘Beez in the Trap’

For her single “Beez in the Trap,” Nicki collaborates with 2 Chainz. This is the second single of Nicki’s album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

The video is all about boobs and booty and the song isn’t something that will define Nicki’s career.

Video: Jennifer Lopez Will ‘Dance Again’ with Pitbull

Hoping to top charts and earn a pretty penny on sales, Jennifer Lopez teams up with Pitbull to release “Dance Again.” This duo left a lasting impression on the music scene with “On The Floor,” does the new track compare?

Well let’s start by saying all the new buzz is not about the record, rather it is about JLo and her young love interest Casper Smart all over each other. Personally, I think it is distasteful; Jennifer is a successful entertainer who needs no man to validate her and such a public display of affection seems desperate. How you gonna explain this to your two babies? Grow-up Jennifer!

On the other hand, Jennifer carries a poised and proper persona on American Idol as a judge. This full-out sex driven video just seems to be another cry for attention. Sex sells, I get it, but I think Jennifer is selling her talent short.

The song is nothing amazing in terms of production or content, but it’s catchy and once it’s picked up on every radio rotation, we’ll all be singing it.

Let me leave you with this, “Dance Again” is “On The Floor” part II and we know the sequel is never as good as the original.

Chris Brown Wants ‘ Sweet Love’

Chris Brown has dropped “Sweet Love” which is the second single off his forthcoming album Fortune. The first dose of the album was “Turn Up The Music” which became a chart topper and club hit. “Sweet Love” takes a more tender and sexy approach and this song is quite R-rated.
