JT is Back… ‘Shirt & Tie” …What do i think?

Here’s what i think…. ‘ba da ba ba ba I’m loving it’! 

My opinion is simple really…. enough of everyone making the same type of song already… every other beat in the charts is EDM (Electronic Dance Music) by RnB/Pop acts….so when artist like Miguel, Robin Thicke, Frank Ocean, Jill Scott, R Kelly, Brandy, India Irie, Alicia Keys, Marsha Ambrosious, Esperanza Spalding, Lloyd, The Robert Glasper Project, Maxwell to name only a few release good music you are thankful.

Justin is clearly a high profile act and therefore his release will eclipse any other efforts made by some of the above artist mention, not to say there music is less worthy of exposure…its just the politics of the industry. That being said…..i am personally super pleased that Justin is back!!!

'Shirt & Tie' echoes the soulful vocal arrangements that we have been missing in the national charts which many before him such as R Kelly, Marvin Gaye etc can be felt through the dance-floor friend Timbo aka Timbaland produced track.

We all know that JT and Timbo aka Thomas Crown have great musical chemistry, it always sounds like they just get in the studio and vibe the f**k out, they have fun, you can hear it because the songs they make groove, the beat & vocals always marry oozing swag, oozing funk, oozing their many musical influences that go back to James & Al Green.

SO YES I AM PERSONALLY HAPPY with ‘SHIRT & TIE’… Dope harmonies, slick subject, …its grown folk music, not for kids that wanna JUMP UP & DOWN Fist pumping to the latest craze (Yo i’m all for that kids….trust me i love Dance/Bass music too) But there is time and place for Fist Pumpin & special time for putting on your SHIRT n TIE fellas, Classy evening outfit ladies, and hitting the dancefloor … showing off your best 2 step, doing the hustle, and groovin to the music …feeling the love…..feeling yourself, FEELING GOOD.

The slow jam intro on ‘SHIRT N TIE’ is right up my street and again proving how much fun JT and Timbo have together, they just WILE OUT….bringing back the 90’s ‘bump n grind’…’freek n you’ era back….. to the dance floor (the good ole days).

NOT EVERY COMEBACK has to be an EXPLOSION, red carpet, paparrazi entrance to the charts…. why can’t someone EASE their way in through the back door, and show you what you’ve been missing without even realising it hmmm? 

ANY CRITICS bashing this song are ASS-HOLES….simple, your a slave to the current state of the charts that you’ve come to expect more of the same & forgotten the FEEL GOOD FACTOR in music…. go listen to some MARVIN GAYE…. JODECI…. STEVIEWONDER…. R KELLY & then tell me that ‘SHIRT n TIE’ isn’t simply GOOD RnB!!!

I GUESS SOME FOLK REALLY DONT KNOW A GOOD SONG TILL THEY SEE A VIDEO over n over again….(dear oh dear…tut tut tut) & Please stop comparing the 1st single to ‘Like I Love You’, or ‘Sexy Back’

You cannot duplicate ‘Justafied’, or ‘Future Sex Love Sound’ instead you get a NEW CHAPTER telling the story of who JT is now and where he is at in this part of his Journey, so lets all just enjoy the RIDE of what will be ‘The 20/20 Experience!!!!

SALUTE TIMBO & SALUTE JT

I’M DONE

I WANT A LOVE LIKE THIS!!!!
***In my Tony Thompson voice** (R.I.P)
"I WANT A LOVE LIKE THIS"
A love u can admire, look upto, be thankful for, grow from and 20yrs later still build on. Its a ‘grown love’ no bullshit, no games, no power struggle or ‘know your place biznezz’ …not a boy still playing games with his willy & breaking hearts but A MAN that affirms u, wants his children to be like u, and in return your children want 2 grow to be either A MAN like him or find a MAN to treat her like him. A man that shows you that UR ENOUGH 4 HIM, & HE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH 4 YOU! 
He loves you ‘JUST THE WAY YOU ARE’, you don’t want to change him and he don’t want to change you, however over time you naturally change for each other to make a stronger unit!
 
A man u can TRUST with your HEART…. & will CHERISH Your LIFE and LOVE as U DO HIS!!!!
This love is a family over EVERYTHING LOVE… Its not perfect as no relationship is, but it’s foundation is loyalty, honor, respect & faith. This love is not still chasing every bit of skirt or hunting for the big bamboo, feeling like its missing out on life by being comitted… but rather …this 
love produces a declaration like this: 
 
"I wouldn’t be the man I am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. (Cheers, applause.) Let me say this publicly. Michelle, I have never loved you more. (Cheers, applause.) I have never been prouder to watch the rest of America fall in love with you too as our nation’s first lady. (Cheers, applause.) Sasha and Malia before our very eyes you’re growing up to become two strong, smart, beautiful young women, just like your mom. And I am so proud of you guys."
 
'I WANT A LOVE LIKE THIS' & WILL ACCEPT NOTHING LESS!!!
Yours Truly

URBAN MY ARSE!!!!!

What does Urban Mean In British Music?

Ok here goes a rant on the back of X Factor tonight……the misplaced use of the word ‘URBAN’ is pissin me off!

This all started when …. The Brit Awards robbed Craig David of an award the year he had like 100 nominations & not one award. The complaints were so high Brits suddenly came up with an ‘Urban’ category (to save face) & started throwing British ‘Black Acts’ or acts performing songs of ‘Black origin’ (lemar, ms dynamite, jamelia, joss stone,) etc into it as they were not being recognised against the other musical genres (pop, indie, rock etc) or International acts Destiny’s Child, 50Cent etc

Suddenly ‘Urban’ became the bin or melting pot for any British act associated with ‘Black music’ why not just say RnB artist, Soul artist, Black music….. Why mish mash it into this Socially incorrect word in relation to music ‘URBAN’! Its a bag of bull shiiieeeetttt.

So now if u wear a baseball cap, sportswear, MC, or use slang….. you are URBAN? Well what are u saying that every individual from innercity areas dresses in ‘Streetwear’ erm…. Stereotype or what!???!
Deeper still if Urban is a another way of implying ‘Blackness or black inspired’ then are u sayin every Black person comes from the innercity ‘Urban’ areas & all speak slang, dress street, make music or can run really fast etc etc i mean BLOODY HELL…. **nothern voice** when is this BULL SHIIIEEET **yank voice** gonna STOP!!!!!

If u are inspired by some aspects of Black culture just friggin say so….. Say u love Hip hop, soul, reggae, blues, jazz, carribean life, rather than embracing it to suddenly  ’BE HIP or Quirky or ECLECTIC’ & to fit in with the overly wack use of the born again ‘SWAGGER’ religion that Louie Walsh feels he is the ambassador of!

Was Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Little Richard, Nina Simone, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington categorised as URBAN? NO!!!
They were called Soul acts, Blues, Acts, Jazz acts, Gospel, Rhythm & Blues singers, Pop stars or Black Music period URBAN is not a GENRE so….stop palming it of as one to describe music…

In my **Jim Royale voice** (Royale Family) I say…..”URBAN MY ARSE”!!!!!!

its no secret. when it comes to “live” performance of EDM… that’s about the most it seems you can do anyway. It’s not about performance art, its not about talent either (really its not) In fact, let me do you and the rest of the EDM world button pushers who fuckin hate me for telling you how it…
