R&B crooner Brian McKnight is hyping up the release of his 15th album More Than Words with his old-school flavored single "4th of July." But we’re wondering….does he have "it"?  Decide if Brian can still floss the silky sound inside….  

Brian McKnight caused quite the controvery last year when when his x-rated track "If You’re Ready To Learn" went viral and showed that the G-rated songster had a freaky side. And with his first album in two years, More Than Words, due March 19, the singer manages to gives us those lush vocals we’ve come to love and still expose his naughty side.  

And he continies with the controversial ish like what he recently said about another track on the album,  “I Didn’t Really Mean To Turn You Out.” He told Huff Post Black Voices:

"…To kind of take people’s minds off the fact that I just really said that. Because we all been there like, “Girl, I told you, you can’t love this d*ck like that. I told you in the beginning.” [Laughs] It’s real tongue and cheek."

Wow.

But outside of his journey to the naughty side, Brian explained why he’s still chugging along in this business:

I really didn’t think I would have this much to say anytime soon. And when the label came to me to say, “would you like to do another record,” I said, “Well I got these sixteen songs sitting here, so let’s do it.” And that was pretty much it…I never stopped writing, it’s just the way that the business is now you just try to find a different model. But once I started writing I said to myself, “Maybe, I’ll do one more, let’s see what happens. Let’s see if the world is ready for another one.” So we’ll see.

Now, you can decide if this is the old Brian Mcknight we came to love. Listen to his new "4th of July" single below:

 

Chris Brown PARTIES With Karreuche And Ex-Girlfriend Draya + Chris CALLS Brian McKnight OLD And IRRELEVANT During Twitter Fight

Interesting…..Chris Brown was spotted partying with girlfriend Karrueche Tran and ex-chick reality star Draya Michele recently. See pics inside and find out about Brian McKnight‘s twitter beef with Chris.

Looks like Chris at least tries to maintain good relations with his ex-girls as he and Karrueche were recently spotted partying at Toxic in LA and  on another night with his ex-chick “Basketball Wives: LA” star Draya Michele.  Quite interesting…….

 

In other Chris news……..

The singer was attacked by Brian McKnight on Twitter recently.  The "Anal" singer went after Chris and Floyd Mayweather Jr. for domestic abuse (um…..pot meet kettle), and R. Kelly for "underage" sex after he received criticism about his new direction. 

 

Not one to let a snarky comment go unchecked, Chris responded,

 

Sigh………….when will Chris’ PR team change his account so he has to get approval of his tweets?  But in his defense, Brian did start it and he was just instigating some beef.

NEWS: Exonerated Football Player Brian Banks LANDS Try-Outs With FOUR NFL Teams

Brian Banks, the just released man who made national news after being falsely accused and convicted of rape when he was 16, is now getting his shot at the big leagues (10 years later). He landed four try-outs with NFL teams. Get the deets on his anticipated "comeback" inside………

A little backstory first in case you missed it:

Briak Banks’ life story is prime material for a "Movie Of The Week," and he hasn’t even gotten to the best part yet.  In 2002 when he was a sixteen-year-old Long Beach high school student, Brian was accused of rape by a girl he "made out" with inside the school’s stairwell.  And despite a lack of DNA evidence and the alleged victim changing a few parts of her story, he was convicted of the crime.  In fact, it was his initial lawyer who advised him to plead "No Contest" to the crime.  Brian revealed to the media recently: 

"She told me I was a big black teenager and no jury would believe anything I said."

Brian then served five years and two months in prison and spent another five years on probation for a crime he didn’t commit.  But surprisingly, he was not bitter and credits that to his relationship with God.  

One day out of the blue, the girl who falsely accused him of rape requested to be his friend on Facebook.  Brian says he then had a talk with God and realized this may be a way to clear his name.

He began talking to his accuser and secretly recorded their conversations and her admission that the "rape" was a lie.  Once the tapes found their way to the judge who handled the case….Brian was exonerated.

And it gets better…….

Before his jail stint, Brian was a promising football player and had many colleges interested in him. Now……he’s getting a second shot at following his dreams as four NFL teams (Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins) have agreed to bring Brian in for tryouts.

Brian has been working out six days a week in preparation for the teams.  He told ESPN, "Let me show you what I can produce, I think that any team that gives me an opportunity will be really impressed with what I can do."

When asked about everything that happened, Brian said, "It’s been a struggle. But I’m unbroken, and I’m still here today."

Regardless of whether Brian makes it to the NFL, this is going to be a great comeback story.

 

SIDEBAR:  The accuser, Wanetta Gibson, and her family were awarded $ 1.5M after the trial after suing the school district for "failing to provide a safe environment."  Wanetta told Brian she didn’t want to "go on record" admitting the lie for fear that her family would be asked to return the money.  For now, authorities in Long Beach say there is no official investigation into Wanetta’s conduct. But in the end, she isn’t living the high life.  Court reports suggest she has few assets and spents years on public assistance!
