Eminem Song Used in ‘Act of Valor’ 2012 Super Bowl Commercial

Eminem‘s smash hit ‘Not Afraid’ is an empowering anthem, so it’s no wonder that the song was used in a short trailer for the Navy SEAL-themed film ‘Act of Valor’ which aired during Super Bowl XLVI. The film is a fictionalized account of real-life Navy SEAL operations, full of edge-of-your-seat, adrenalized action. Continue reading

Comedian Pokes Fun at Jay-Z and Beyonce with ‘Glory’ Song Parody

Every since Blue Ivy Carter entered the world on Jan. 7, her doting parents, Jay-Z and Beyonce, had been fodder for the tabloids. Her birth, and the couple’s extraordinary efforts to secure their privacy, is now the subject of a song parody.

Comedian Rob Ryan pokes fun at Jayonce on his reworking of ‘Glory,’ the dedication song Hov recorded for his first child with Bey-Bey. The funnyman created the track for BlackBook, and while we think his rhymes are a little facetious, the tune made us chuckle in a few parts.

On the song, Ryan spoofs the reports that the couple spent $ 1.3 million to seal off Lenox Hill Hospital’s neo-natal care unit, which allegedly blocked other parents from seeing their own babies. For the record, a hospital rep has vehemently denied those reports and a State Health Department spokesman found no evidence of any wrongdoing.

The most amazing feeling I feel, is closing down floor 6 of Lenox Hill,” Ryan starts off on the parody track, twisting Jay-Z’s original rhymes on the heartfelt song. “Baby I blocked the ICU, it’s a pretty jerk move its true … true … sorry.”

Ryan also teases Jayonce for naming their daughter Blue Ivy Carter. He raps, “Named my girl Blue Ivy / Sounds like a villain straight out of ‘Batman Volume 3?.” He then adds, “Everybody goes through some stuff / Unless you pay 1.3 million so you don’t have to go through stuff.”

In the end, Jay-Z and Beyonce will have the last laugh. Hov’s original song ‘Glory’ made Blue Ivy Carter the youngest person to ever debut on the Billboard charts. Furthermore, fans will be able to buy the track via iTunes on Jan. 17.

Jennifer Hudson + Ne-Yo, ‘Think Like a Man’ Feat. Rick Ross – Song Review

Jennifer Hudson teams up with Ne-Yo and Rick Ross for the break up tune ‘Think Like a Man,’ which is the theme song to Steve Harvey’s romantic comedy of the same name starring Chris Brown, Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart and others.

This is a wonderful pairing between the two R&B superstars as J.Hud and Ne-Yo complement each other vocally on the track. The duo play a couple who have come to the realization that their relationship won’t work because of their different views on love. “Now there’s no we, babe / There’s just you and there’s me, babe,” Hudson sings on the song. She then adds, “When you in love, you have to act like a woman / But think like a man.”

Meanwhile, Ne-Yo agrees that the relationship has gone sour and he’s ready to bounce. “Now I’m going to keep it realer with you now than I ever been / We should have never been / Girl we was better as friends,” he confesses.

Rozay comes through and provides an obligatory rap verse of spoiling his girl with the finer things in life. He raps, “Time costs money, and it’s so expensive / Versace linen got these women blowing kisses / leaning on my auto, she so photogenic / Can I take a picture, she’s my Mona Lisa.”

Despite it’s somber tone, ‘Think Like a Man’ is a great R&B ballad that every woman and man can relate to. It won’t solve your relationship problems, but it will definitely make you snap your fingers in the name of love.

‘Think Like a Man,’ the movie, will arrive in theaters on March 9.

Melanie Fiona has released "Wrong Side Of A Love Song" of her long awaited album The MF Life (due May 8th). Decide if you love it inside….

Melanie Fiona’s latest track takes her to the wrong side of a love song….where it’s dark, painful and makes you cry.  On the old-school tinged record, Melanie comes across as a female Al Green as she expresses her pain and love through her vocals.

Amber Rose to Release New Song with Wiz Khalifa

Rapper Wiz Khalifa‘s boo Amber Rose teased us last year that she was recording a new song that will shock and awe us. Apparently, she wasn’t kidding. The blond bombshell plans to debut her new single on Tuesday (Jan. 10) at 9AM EST on gossip website Perez Hilton.

The song is called ‘Fame’ and it will obviously feature her boyfriend Wizzy but we are not certain if the bodacious model is singing or rapping on the joint. “I’m so excited to release my first song … It’s CRAZY! Working with Wiz is a dream come true; I am fortunate to have his support,” said Amber via a statement. “This is a very personal song to me that I wanted to record for my fans. I want people to see the world from my eyes, you know, from BEHIND MY SHADES! It’s my interpretation of what it means to be “FAMOUS,” which is not something superficial but instead being self-confident and happy with who you are. You can feel famous everyday if you believe in yourself!”

Well, there you have it folks. Rose will show you how to handle fame. We wonder if Rose’s song will reveal any aspects of her personal life. She was quit chatty with Star magazine on how Kim Kardashian ruined her previous romantic affair with Kanye West.

We wish Amber Rose the best of luck with her new single.

Jay-Z Releases ‘Glory’ Song Feat. Blue Ivy Carter

Forget all those ridic rumors about Eulb Yvi. We don’t need officially released photos. We don’t need a statement from Beyonce and Jay-Z about Blue Ivy Carter! Why not? Because we got a song from Jay-Z, featuring little Baby Blue herself.

That’s right, her cries and coos are featured in the song. Leave it to the Hova to get his daughter on a song when she is less than 48 hours old!

On his Life + Times website, Jay-Z released ‘Glory’ featuring B.I.C. We all know the B to the I to the C is. It was also produced by the Neptunes. Jay-Z sounds like a man completely and totally enamored by his offspring. She’s daddy’s little girl already!

The Hov sings, “Maybe I’ll paint the sky blue / My greatest creation was you” and there is an image of the Empire State Building (nodding to ‘Empire State of Mind’) lit up in blue on the page where the song streams. He raps that words can’t adequately describe his emotions, but he does a damn good job of getting the point across with his lyrics.

He boasts mightily, saying,  “Get ready for Part Two / A young, smarter, faster me.” He references his late father, calls her a “bad a— little Hov” and a “wicked a— little Bey,” pointing out that’s “one helluva recipe.” The Hov also admits, “It’s hard not to spoil you rotten / Looking like me.” Yep, Dad’s in love.

There’s some serious autobiographical material in ‘Glory,’ as well. It’s not all boastful “This girl is gonna be Queen” stuff. Jay says that she was made in Paris, so she must have been conceived during an overseas trip — or if you believe conspiracy theorists, that’s where Bey and Jay got their surrogate mother. He also speaks about a miscarriage that was tragic, making us wondering if Bey and Jay were preggers once before and lost the baby. (And will likely get the crackpots saying that Bey can’t carry a baby to term so they were forced to use a surrogate womb!)

He speaks about “last time,” making it appear as though there was another pregnancy, which makes his reference to her as a “child of destiny” much more than a pun on her mother’s former group. He also raps that “Mama said you dance for her,” sharing an intimate detail from the pregnancy. When Blue moved in utero, it was like she danced for her mom! Aw.

At the end of the song, we hear little Baby Blue gurling and crying! It’s really the sweetest thing.

Now stop all this Illuminati and Lucifer’s daughter nonsense and share some of Jay-Z’s joy.
