Here is the studio version of Etta James' wedding classic "At Last" from the upcoming Cadillac Records Soundtrack. Of course she gives a flawless vocal performance, I'm glad she kept strict to the original and didn't overpower it with Sasha. Etta's version is just so beautiful, it deserves to remain simple. The movie will be released December 5th, but a video for the track with clips of the movie is set to premiere in the coming weeks.Beyonce recent revealed to press that she gained about 15-20 lbs to play the role of Etta James.LISTEN: Beyonce - "At Last" Plus check out flicks of Bey-Z out on a date, partying at 1 OAK Night club in the Chelsea district at a cocktail party celebrating Diddy’s cover of the “Black on Black” cover of L’Uomo Vogue’s October 2008 Music Issue, before heading out for dinner and drinks!

The ongoing soap opera that is Usher and Tameka Foster his aired a new episode. After pictures of Usher and a mysterious woman surfaced and Tameka arriving at Tyler Perry's Studio Opening solo and pregnant, the rumors of separations seem more like reality.Scoop nabber Jawn Murray laid out more juicy details about their all but confirmed separation......on Oct. 1, I got a call from a woman whose name for now I will withhold claiming to be a "friend" of the Raymonds and "concerned because Usher was having an extramarital affair."After a bunch of hemming and hawing about how she "didn't want her name mentioned" and how she was "only calling me to do the right thing," this alleged "friend" of the couple went on to accuse a fellow R&B/Pop singer of being Usher's mistress.After checking out this alleged extramarital affair I realized that the dates in question were improbable because Usher and the alleged mistress were in two separate countries for two and a half months of this all...

News broke today that Lil Wayne is a new daddy of a baby boy...Word on the curb is that the young lady is neither Nivea or his ex-wife, but a 22-year old student from the University of Cincinnati named "Sarah B."

Ryan Leslie Steps Back...
2008-10-21 03:55:00
Ryan Leslie is back in the studio and has pushed his album back to February of 2009. Why? Extreme leakage of album. He's no Kanye, only he can leak his own ish and people still buy it. As he says, and I agree, he needs more exposure...This clip opens with me playing back an extended instrumental arrangement of I-R-I-N-A with some overdubs by my man Jermaine Parrish on drums and Al Carty on bass.Inspired, I decided to re-visit one of my favorite songs called 'Just Right'. Here's a look at that session. I had to rebuild it from scratch as one of my hard drives had crashed and many sessions had been lost. I love the new elements, and here's to you loving them too...For everyone that's been asking, I'll be releasing the album in February. The main reason why it's been pushed back is very simple: I need more exposure!

It's not pimpin', pimpin'!
2008-10-19 08:56:00
It's only fitting that the BET Hip Hop Awards would hit some kind of snag to go along with the inevitable foolery. So I get a random email saying that Katt Williams had a moment of Deja Vu and was snatched up by the Feds, hence unable to host the show. That's just a rumor, but it is true that Katt Williams was replaced by T-Pain as host of the show. See what I mean, foolery!Word on the curb is that Katt and BET had some kind of breakdown last night, but according to one of BET's blogs it all came down to a break dancing contest. More foolery!Says Stephen Hill, “So we were all hanging out last night and Katt bets T-Pain couldn’t beat him in a break dance battle. Not knowing T-Pain was an extremely DOPE break dancer, Katt thought it was an easy win. T-Pain said if I win, I get to host the Hip Hop Awards.” More people, BET, get more people! Either neither Katt skipped the show and is said to be at home.
A Baby for Lil Wayne?
2008-10-19 08:47:00
Whaaaaa? A baby? By who? Yeah, we are all wondering who he has a son the way with. He's been linked to his ex-wife, Superhead, and Nivea over that last few months, but they all have been out with him partying. So could it be someone chick we know nothing about? He dropped this nugget of joy in his exceptance speech during the BET Hip Hop Awards..."I got a son dropping any day, pray for me."I guess... Well congrats.

Aubrey's Hoe-ish Image Did Her In!
2008-10-17 03:52:00
Well that's not a surprise! Pretty much what we all figured anyway. Remember her crackwhore-esque spread in Complex Magazine? Well, that may just be what put the nail in the coffin..."We had just did a signing with Dollhouse Teen, which is for 13, 14-year-old young girls," Dawn Richard tell UsMagazine. "So we can't do that one day and then the next day do an obnoxious cover.... [Diddy] wants the fans, and he says he can't do that if we can continue to go in the direction that we were going."Dawn also reiterated that D. Woods was just caught in the crossfire [pun intended], but that the group will continue on, at the least as a trio but maybe even with a new member."Well Puff told me specifically that Aubrey is no longer in Danity Kane and Danity Kane will move forward without her. He has not said anything [about auditioning new members] but I think in my heart that he is gonna do another show."The group, the name Danity Kane, is locked into Bad Boy for 7, yes s-e-v-e-n, albums.

I don't remember no mixtape DJs. Tell this dude who he talking to right now. I'm not into all that sh*t. I don't know no mixtape DJ. I'm the orignator of something. I'ma give him some history. I'm like Authur Nobel. Or whatever his name is. You know the Nobel prize peace (sic) person. You know him? He created gunpowder and all them mass destruction things that killed millions of people.
