R&B STAR T’MELLE DROPS SEXY NEW VIDEO

R&B STAR T’MELLE DROPS SEXY NEW VIDEO FOR HER SINGLE “DROP IT DOWN”

Raw Entertainment Magazine Tmelle

  

ATLANTA, GA (Aug. 19, 2015) – R&B singer, songwriter and dancer and Hip Hop’s newly-minted “Bad Girl,” T’Melle, returns to the spotlight with a sultry new video for her mid-tempo single “Drop It Down.” The Philly-born, Atlanta-raised artist got her start as the protegé of TLC superstar Lisa “Left Eye Lopes,” but suffered near death injuries as a passenger in the fatal crash that took her mentor’s life.  In a recent interview, T’Melleunveiled what happened just before that crash and her unstoppable struggle to walk, run and now dance again. What the doctors said would never happen…DID.

“I’m the girl that still had hope when life took a turn. After a tragic car accident I was told I might never run or dance again. Losing “Left Eye,” the person I looked up to, who impacted the world, was one of the hardest things I’ve ever been through! I’m the girl that people told to quit and that this wasn’t going to happen for me. I’m the girl who’s been told ‘No’ way more than the word yes! I believed! I still believe!” T’Melle proudly says.  “I represent Survival, Determination and Empowerment! And I say it through my music! I’m the person who motivates people like I motivated myself, to never give up! My music speaks volumes with my message and edgy R&G (Rhythm and Gangsta) content!

As a teen, T’Melle moved to Atlanta to pursue her solo career and has worked with producers the likes of Usher Raymond, Tricky Stewart, Bryan Cox, and Rodney Jenkins. Now T’Melle takes over the summer with her sexy new single, “Drop it Down,” giving her fans just a taste of what new music is to come.  “[This is] a feel good video that moves you and put’s you in a 90’s feel where people hung out at the playground to get away from their problems. It’s about different age groups getting together and uniting but also how life can change in a minute all from a bad decision and what’s going on in the world today!” the Philly native says.

Get To Know T’Melle on Instagram and Twitter: @ItsTMelle​ and stay tuned for more new music and visuals coming soon.

Raw Entertainment Magazine Dr. Dre’s Greatest Club Hits

Raw Entertainment Magazine Dr. Dre’s Greatest Club Hits

RawEntertainmentDrDre2

Of course the past week has been all about Straight Outta Compton, the new film about the group N.W.A.  The film made $60 million over the first weekend.  Seeing as though it cost $29 million to make, it is safe to say it will be very profitable.
In a previous post, I reviewed the music that was inspired by the film.  I will not call it a soundtrack, as only one of the songs actually appeared in the film, but after you listen to the album, you will know that it was definitely inspired by the movie.
Dr. Dre had a mythical album, Detox, that was supposed to be released at one point or another over the past ten years or so, but recently Dre said that it was never released because he did not like the music.  When you have a track record, I guess you can just shelve an album, because while it may sell well out of the gate, the negative reviews may end up tarnishing someone’s legacy.  I personally do not have a string of hits out there, so if I have a few tracks that I want to put out, I am not thinking about my legacy!  I just want to put it out!
As you know, I have been a club DJ for over 20 years, and I have played many tracks over the course of my career.  Being from California and now residing in Las Vegas, I tend to play more of the West Coast vibe, and many Dr. Dre tracks ended up in my sets because of the smooth, funky, old school inspired grooves.
For this post I thought I would list Dr. Dre’s top ten club hits.  I want to specify the word club, because these will be tracks that work in the clubs, not necessarily songs that you groove to in the car, riding down the street.  All of these tracks are either produced, performed or written by Dr. Dre.
So, here we go…..Exotic DJ’s Top Ten:  Dr. Dre’s Greatest Club Hits…..These are in no particular order.

In Da Club – 50 Cent

Nuthin’ But A G Thang – Snoop Dogg f/Dr. Dre

Family Affair – Mary J Blige

California Love – 2Pac f/Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman

No Diggity – Blackstreet f/Dr. Dre and Queen Pen

The Next Episode – Dr. Dre f/Snoop Dogg

Without Me – Eminem

Ain’t No Fun (If the Homies Can’t Have None) – Snoop Dogg

Gin & Juice – Snoop Dogg

Let Me Blow Your Mind – Gwen Stefani f/Eve

Raw Entertainment Magazine Movie Review Straight Outta Compton

Raw Entertainment Magazine Movie Review Straight Outta Compton

RawEntertainmentMagazineStraightCompton

 

I have seen many biographical films about artists in the music biz, many of them were really good, while others were just ok.  The only problem with these type of films, is that they are limited to 1-1/2 to 2 hours to tell the whole story.  Often times that is not enough, so unless you know the backstory, you’ll miss out on some of the nuances of the film.
Straight Outta Compton, which opened August 14, does not escape this pitfall, but it is an excellent film that stands on its own.  This is the story of N.W.A., who rose to stardom by creating a unique sound, with in-yo-face lyrics that made people take notice.  la-et-ct-box-office-straight-outta-compton-man-from-uncle-mission-impossible-20150816
The lead roles of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy-E were performed by relatively unknowns; O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell respectively.  Dr. Dre said in an interview that they wanted “New talented black artists, as they did not want to get the typical black actors who are doing their thing.  It would feel funny, and possibly, a little fake.”
They hit a home run with the casting, as these young artists hit the nail on the head, especially Mitchell, who’s interpretation of Eazy-E was authentic, dynamic, and totally believable.  I felt like I was actually watching Eazy-E on the screen.
Hawkins actually resembles a young Dr. Dre, and being a Juilliard trained actor, he takes the role and makes it his own.  Jackson, Ice Cube’s son, also turns in a good debut performance as an actor.  It helps to have the DNA of the person you are playing, but this was not handed to him. It is evident that Jackson studied and worked on this role, one that made the elder Ice Cube proud.
F Gary Gray, the director, said in an interview that they had three and a half hours of footage, and they had to cut it down to a more reasonable length.  You cannot include everything, but they captured the main idea, or vibe to make this film a successful one.
I mentioned the idea of the backstory earlier, and because I was working in the music business at that time, I understood the film in ways that the average moviegoer who does not know that backstory, will not.
Here is some information that will fill in a few of the blanks.
A scene early in the film depicts Dre and DJ Yella working at Lonzo’s (Alonzo Williams) nightclub.  Lonzo was a former DJ who recruited Dre and Yella and formed the World Class Wreckin’ Cru.  In 1996, they had a huge hit with “Turn Out The Lights,” with guest vocals by Michel’le.  I think this important, because the N.W.A. record was not the first record that Dr. Dre was a part of.
Later in the film, Ice Cube left the group due to issues with Jerry Heller, and there was a short scene where he is in the studio recording his debut solo album.  It is important to know that the producers in that recording studio was the Bomb Squad.  Hank Shocklee, Keith Shocklee, Chuck D, Eric Sadler and Gary G-Whiz.  The Bomb Squad has produced many hits over the years, but they are best known for producing the seminal group, Public Enemy.  This is key, because Cube purposely wanted a production style that was literally 3000 miles away from Southern California.  The Bomb Squad was an east coast production outfit.
As far as the music in the film is concerned, the N.W.A. tracks were featured heavily throughout, but songs by George Clinton/Parliament/Funkadelic were also a welcomed addition.  The George Clinton/Parliament/Funkadelic group are one of the most sampled in Hip Hop history, and funk like this can be heard in all of Dre’s production efforts.
Overall, Straight Outta Compton is a film that will entertain and educate, as it provides some insight on the cultural climate of the time, something that no history book will be able to communicate.  I definitely recommend it.

Raw Entertainment Music Review Compton

Raw Entertainment Music Review Compton

DrDre-compton

 “DrDre-compton” by Source. Licensed under Fair use via Wikipedia.

The way we listen to music is vastly different than at any time in our history.  We are a singles culture.  We listen to the latest single from the artist that is in vogue.  If they have a follow up single, we will jump on that also.  That is ok, don’t get me wrong, but that is not how we listened to music ten, fifteen, twenty years ago.  We bought albums on vinyl, tape, and it you are old enough you bought 8-track tapes.  Many of the albums were listened in their entirety, as there was a story and a message in the music for those who took the time to listen.

“Compton,” the new release by Dr. Dre, brings us back to that.  It is an album from start to finish, with a distinct beginning, middle, and end.  You are encouraged to listen to the entire album to understand the story.

The story is a day in the life in the city of Compton, California.  The artists each bring their own reality to the table, and together it paints portrait of this city in which many individuals will never experience.

I have often called Dr. Dre the Quincy Jones of Hip Hip, because the production skills are impeccable, and once again he has assembled a cast of rappers and singers that blend well together to tell the Compton story.  Some of the artists are well-known, while others are not.  The end result, in my opinion, is a masterpiece that has staying power.

If you do not know Quincy Jones, Google him and check out “Back On The Block,” and “Q’s Jook Joint.”

The stand out tracks for me include, “Talk About it,” which is a great beginning to the trip you are about to take. “Issues,” has that great West Coast flow with a great R & B hook, resulting in a wave type sensation, rolling up-and-down and back up again.  Normally a smooth R & B hook in a Hip Hop track will feature a smoothed out rhyme.

“One Shot One Kill,” features Snoop Dogg, and if you did not read the credits, you would never know it was him.  Stylistically, this is a departure, but true artists are able to make this transition from time to time.

My favorite track is “For The Love Of Money.”

Go listen to the album, from start to finish.  When the film is released on August 14, go see it, then come back and listen to the album again.  I guarantee it will be a different experience.

Timbaland Is Sitting On Unreleased Aaliyah Music, Promises “Sneak Peek”

Timbaland Is Sitting On Unreleased Aaliyah Music, Promises “Sneak Peek”

In the late 1990’s, Aaliyah and Timbaland had a good thing going, with his beats, and her vocals.  With hits like “If Your Girl Only Knew,” “Are You That Somebody,” and “Try Again,” they had that perfect blend of raw Hip Hop with the R & B flavor that eventually started a movement.  Soon thereafter, Hip Hop beats featuring female singers became very popular on the airwaves.
Aaliyah’s tragic death in 2001 saw the end of the music released by these two.Raw Entertainment Magazine Aaliyah-Timbaland

Or was it?

Timbaland often gets asked if he still has any unreleased material from late R&B singer Aaliyah.

“Well the answer is YES!!!!!!!!” the famed producer and rapper confirmed on Instagram Saturday, Aug. 8. He added that a “sneak peak” of new music is on the way. His post included a photo of Aaliyah’s face surrounded by clouds.
I love the work that Timbaland & Justin Timberlake put out there, but I would love to het a hold of some of those unreleased tracks featuring Aaliyah’s voice once again.  I know this will never happen, but what would a collaboration between Timbaland, Justin Timberlake and Aaliyah sound like?
I guess I can always dream, right?

Dr. Dre’s “Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre” First Week Sales Projections

by MITCHELL STEINFELD
Dr. Dre’s Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre is expected to sell between 260,000 and 275,000 units in its first week, according to Hits Daily Double.Raw Entertainment Magazine Dr Dre
The Sales Plus Streaming sales figure is expected to be between 290,000 and 305,000.
Both figures are expected to make Compton: A Soundtrack By Dr. Dre the #2 album in the country when the sales figures are released next week. Country album Kill The Lights by Luke Bryan is expected to take the top spot.
Dr. Dre’s previous album, 2001, debuted at #2 in 1999 with 516,000 copies sold.
Compton’s sales could be affected by how well Dre plays to the TV market, which is promoting the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton he produced and is slated to arrive in theaters Friday (August 14).
“Dre owns ESPN radio and TV as well as Twitter,” Hits Daily Double reports. “Traditional and nontraditional word of mouth could keep it stronger than the usual trends. That’s something we should know on Monday after seeing the weekend sales. Will the TV ad blitz for the movie give Dre a strong late-week finishing kick?”
The digital nature of the release will affect the numbers.
Dr. Dre says the royalties he earns from the album release will go toward building an arts center in Compton.
