Best Of 2014 Roundup!


Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour and D’Angelo’s Black Messiah were among the albums that truly “tickled my fancy” in 2014. Of course, it takes more than just two exceptional albums to make up the 25 Best Albums of 2014 that yours truly penned for Starpulse.com. Similarly, it takes more than Nick Minaj’s raunchy “Anaconda”…

Who Were The Biggest Breakthrough Musicians of 2014?


Ah, it is time for those wonderful compiled year-end lists. Yours truly is hard at work putting some finishing touches on a couple of those time-consuming, yet rewarding things. One of the fruits of my hard labor can be found via Starpulse, entitled Biggest Breakthrough Musicians of 2014. And yes if you’re asking, it’s no…

Too Much Taylor Swift? Methinks Not!


Everybody has been spending a lot of time talking about Taylor Swift. Yes, I’d be totally lying if I said I hadn’t written one thing about Queen Swift – it’s the fashionable thing to do! No, it’s not because I’m the ultimate fan girl; I’ve had plenty of criticism towards Ms. Swift (those live performances…

Maroon 5 Love…


On September 2 – this guy’s birthday – Maroon 5 dropped their fifth studio album, V. Heading up to the release of V, I composed a couple of different articles centering around a personal favorite band. Yeah, yeah, Maroon 5 got some criticism from yours truly in regards to their Overexposed album, but that never…

New Look Jonas on ‘Chains’?


The Jonas Brothers are done – thank goodness! Maybe it is throwing shade, but schmaltz can only go so far, and the Jonas Brothers’ schmaltz was long expired.  Joe Jonas released and unsuccessful pop album (it was actually worthwhile), so his solo career looks like its going nowhere at this point.  However, everyone knows that Nick Jonas…

Music Lists You SHOULD Check Out…Like Totally!


For those expecting a brand-spanking new post, well this isn’t it… well exactly.  Call it a glorified reblog – of sorts… Just read on if you dare!!! As an elite blogger/contributing writer at starpulse.com, I am always composing reviews, lists, and evergreen posts that are featured at some point on the main page of the entertainment site….

Marsha Ambrosius’ Risqué Return


Tuesday, July 15th saw the return of British R&B singer/songwriter Marsha Ambrosius.  Following a three-year hiatus, the former Floetry member released her sophomore album Friends & Lovers.  While Ambrosius was steamy on her debut Late Nights & Early Mornings, she ups the ante this go-round.  Of course, when you see a song titled “69,” that indicates this is no ‘PG’ or…

The Best Songs of 2014 (Mid-year)?


Recently, at Starpulse.com, I penned a list of entitled 30 Best Songs Of 2014 (So Far).  Choosing only 30 best songs left a number of good/great songs out of the mix as well.  The art of compiling a “best-of” list isn’t easy, particularly if you fear overrating some songs while underrating others.  Throw in the fact that…

Review: Robin Thicke Sounds Desperate On ‘Paula’ – Starpulse.com


Unfortunately for Robin Thicke, his latest album Paula ends up being the train wreck I personally thought it would be.  Boring, blasé, over the top, and old-fashioned (in a bad way), Paula ranks at the bottom of Thicke’s discography.  To read my full thoughts on Thicke’s latest album, check out the link below: Review: Robin Thicke Sounds Desperate On ‘Paula’…

20 Of The Dirtiest Rap Songs – Starpulse.com


Once upon a time, there was this popular Christina Aguilera song called “Dirrty”.  That song has nothing to do with this list of  “20 Of the Dirtiest Rap Songs,” but I was in need of an attention getter.  Don’t judge me!  But really, check out this list of raunchy rap songs that make you shake your head or…
