Playlist: 45 Songs With the F-Bomb in Their Title


Don’t call this list profound, call it profane! Corny yes, but true! All of the songs on this list feature every college guy’s (and probably girl’s) favorite expletive in some form – that would be the f-word if you were confused. So, here goes the list! 1) 2Pac, “F*ck The World” (Me Against The World) 2) A$AP Ferg featuring A$ton Matthews, B-Real, Fredo Starr, Onyx … Continue reading Playlist: 45 Songs With the F-Bomb in Their Title

30 Simply Filthy R&B Songs!


Janet Jackson, Damita Jo

Love hasn’t faded from R&B completely, believe it or not. That said sex is definitely in its trendiest position ever within the genre. Folks, parental advisory labels are popping up everywhere these days and for good reason. Basically, “Darling Nikki” would barely qualify the explicit label these days. Some R&B songs are just simply filthy. Here are 30 simply filthy R&B songs that indulge into the physical as opposed to emotional.

 

1) Usher, “Good Kisser” (2014)  

“Good Kisser” definitely is “not that innocent.” Think kissing a banana… or don’t.

 

2) Marsha Ambrosius, “69” (Friends & Lovers, 2014)

The 2 Live Crew sample confirms the song title is accurate: “Face down, a$$ up / that’s the way we like to…” Catch the drift?

 

3) R. Kelly, “Cookie” (Black Panties, 2013)

Oreos will never taste the same in the hands of R. Kelly. “How many licks does it…” – sorry that’s a Tootsie Roll.

 

4) Rihanna, “Cockiness (Love It)” (Talk That Talk, 2011) 

Can you say double entendre? The key words that stand out are suck, cockiness, lick, eat, swallow, and come. Rihanna – you so nasty girl!

 

5) Trey Songz “Love Faces” (Passion, Pain & Pleasure, 2010)

The only thing the song title leaves to the imagination are the facial expressions Trey and his girl make as they do it. Yep, that’s it in a nutshell.

 

6) Kelly Rowland, “Kisses Down Low” (Talk A Good Game, 2013)

Any time the word “arch” is used in an R&B song, it’s definitely not referring to the foot.

 

7) R. Kelly featuring Ludacris, “Legs Shakin’” (Black Panties, 2013)

There’s no restless leg syndrome going on here… Need clarification: “I’m goin’ down, down, down / and do it ‘til your legs shakin’.” There it is.

 

8) Tweet, “Oops Oh My” (Southern Hummingbird. 2002)

Self-love may be a common occurrence, but it’s doesn’t commonly occur via the pop song. Well, ‘cept for Tweet’s “Oops Oh My.”

 

9) Jeremih, “Birthday Sex” (Jeremih, 2009)

Few would deny this would be a fantastic birthday gift. The even better gift would be if everyday could be your birthday. Think about it.

 

10) Estelle, “Make Her Say (Beat It Up)” (2014)

Imagination is a thing of he past apparently. Estelle keeps it 100. In fact, she keeps its 150.

 

11) Janet Jackson, “Sexhibition” (Damita Jo , 2004)

So basically Janet and company combined the words “sex” and “exhibition.” It is what it is, though it seems kind of redundant – particularly at the end when Janet says, “relax, it’s just sex.”

 

12) Kelly Rowland, “Motivation” (Here I Am, 2011)

Well at least Kelly found a different way to sing about sex – her plan is to “be your motivation.” And to add, “And when we’re done, I don’t wanna feel my legs…” Whoa – “oh lover” is right!

 

13) Beyoncé, “Rocket” (Beyoncé, 2013)

The opening lines let the listener know they’re in for a ride: “Let me sit this a$$ on you…”

 

14) Jaheim, “P**** Appreciation Day” (Appreciation Day, 2013)

Talk about being dramatic: “So warm it’s so soft, it’s so tight, it’s the greatest / so I laid in it, played in it / stayed their ‘til daybreak…” Freaky, freaky, freaky!

 

15) T-Pain, “Put It Down” (Epiphany, 2007)

Wonder what Teddy Pain means when he says, “I’mma stick, stick, stick, stick, ooh?”

Playlist: 10 Secular-Minded Religious-Referencing Rap Songs


“I know we in church, and the way that I’m thinking wrong”, Compton MC Game spits on “Hallelujah”. Earlier, on the same album (Jesus Piece) on a track entitled “Church”, Game spits as follows: “I’m tryin’ to go to church / get some chicken wings, after that hit the strip club / see some hoes, twerk…” Jesus, Jesus, Jesus! How many times have you been … Continue reading Playlist: 10 Secular-Minded Religious-Referencing Rap Songs

Impressions: T.I.,Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head


T.I. (Clifford Harris, Jr.), has definitely had his share of issues with the law; this is definitely an understatement.  His 2010 effort No Mercy was essentially promoted by numerous singles being released prior to the effort as T.I. had been sentenced prior to its December 7 release to an additional 11 months in prison. No Mercy managed to be certified gold, though showed a marked decrease … Continue reading Impressions: T.I.,Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head

No Doubt, Push & Shove: Album Impression


No Doubt release their first album in 11 years with 2012’s Push & Shove

Introduction

Gwen Stefani hung up her pop shoes in 2006 with The Sweet Escape, which spawned bona fide hits in the clunky “Wind

No Doubt

Up” and more noticeable “The Sweet Escape” with AkonNo Doubt hadn’t released a proper studio effort since 2001’s Rock Steady. Do the math and folks with the materialization of 2012’s Push & Shove , that is an 11-year hiatus.  Lots of stuff goes down in 11 years – biologically, emotionally, and most pertinent here musically.  How does a veteran band ‘comeback’ after such a long hiatus and remain relevant?  Well No Doubt  manage to maintain their ska stylings, add some modern pop swirls and adapt some retro stylings (80s of course).  The results are solid, though not always/necessarily exceptional.
