New Song from Chris Brown – Trumpet Lights

A new song called “Trumpet Lights” from Chris Brown has recently leaked online. The track was produced by Swizz Beatz, who has been a frequent collaborator with the R&B singer. The song is an explosive eclectic record with loads of horns, auto-tune and some hip hop swag from Chris. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea now that I think about it but the song still sounds pretty unfinished so there’s still room for improvement so I’m reserving final judgment until then. In any case, it all points out that “Trumpet Lights” comes from the recording sessions of Chris’ upcoming album “Fortune”. All we have to do now is wait to see if it will make the final cut.

Chris Brown Releases Mix Tape

Chris Brown is definitely a man of his word. The R&B singer has released his new mix tape “Boy in Detention” today. It’s Chris’ first full hip hop work and I am loving every second of it. The 21-track free mix tape features collaborations with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Tyga, Big KRIT, Swizz Beatz and Justin Bieber’s rapper alter-ego. The mix tape also includes Chris’ remix of Drake’s “Marvin’s Room” and Big Sean’s “My Last”. Chris could have easily made money off of these but they’re free. Now that is a great gift to the fans! Now I can’t wait for his “Fortune” album to come out and see what he has in store.

New Video from Swizz Beatz – International Party

Swizz Beatz recently premiered the music video of his brand new single called “International Party”, which features his wife Alicia Keys. The track serves as the second official release from the hip hop artist’s upcoming album “Haute Living”, which is set to hit US stores on September 13th. The song is a huge mess. It sounds so frantic and just weird. Hearing Alicia singing in a trance-dance track is so bizarre. I’m very certain this will flop on the radio. As for the video, it’s actually pretty cool. It has a futuristic edge to it that I really dig. And if you’re wondering how Swizz managed to pay such a high-budget video, Reebok actually paid $1.4 million to have the video created for their “Rhythm of Lite” campaign.

Swizz Beatz Pushing for Alicia Keys and Adele Duet

Swizz Beatz is quite intent on having his wife Alicia Keys record a duet with British pop/soul singer Adele. The rapper/producer recently told MTV “I just know that you know greatness when you see greatness, and teaming two greats up together, it makes history. And I don’t even have to produce the track; I just want it to happen. She can produce the track, somebody else can produce the track.” To be honest, I would want this to happen too. Those two very unique voices and musical styles – that will be a dream come true. I think I can die happy if this collaboration happens.

Alicia Keys is No Homewrecker

When Alicia Keys first started seeing her now husband Swizz Beatz, there was some speculation that she had gotten involved with him before the rapper/producer had officially left his wife. The R&B singer has remained mum on these allegations for a long time but for some reason, Alicia decided to touch on the subject in a recent interview. Alicia said that she was never the homewrecker people painted her out to be, saying “We didn’t start seeing each other until months after they had separated. I was aware of all the false things that were being said about me it definitely hurt...

Interesting Collaboration with Swizz Beatz

During a recent interview, Swizz Beatz announced that he has recorded a song called “Skyscrapers”. I know, it’s not that interesting. What’s interesting about the track is that the singer/producer actually collaborated with rapper Kanye West and U2’s lead singer Bono on it. The track will be featured on Swizz’s upcoming album “Haute Living”. I can see Swizz and Kanye collaborate but not Bono so I’m definitely interested to see how this one comes out. Do you think that the three of them made a good track or is just too weird a combo for you? I wish I could hear it soon.

New Video from Diddy-Dirty Money – Ass on the Floor

Diddy-Dirty Money recently premiered their new music video for “Ass on the Floor”. The Collin tiley-directed clip has a wintry theme with the two ladies trying to maintain the sexiness despite the cold temperatures while the rap mogul plays his normal self. The song’s producer Swizz Beatz also makes a cameo in the video. “Ass on the Floor” is Diddy-Dirty Money’s brand new single which is part of the upcoming dual release the hip hop trio has in their hands. The other song will be “Looking for Love” featuring R&B singer Usher. The video for that has already been shot with a debut pending.

Swizz Beatz Goes to School

Alicia Keys’ husband and baby daddy, Swizz Beatz, has been named the first producer-in-residence at NYU’s Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York. Students enrolled in the program will get the opportunity to work with the acclaimed producer as well as hear him speak at group lectures, songwriting critiques and mentoring sessions. Talk about getting such an amazing and rare opportunity! Those students are lucky. I wonder if I can sign up for a day class. It’s highly unlikely but there’s nothing wrong with having a bit of hope. Swizz can definitely teach them a thing or two.

Swizz Beatz Lawsuit

Alicia Keys’ new husband Swizz Beatz is being accused as a profit-hogging fraud by a jilted songwriter who claims that he co-produced the song ‘My Drink n My 2 Step’ but got nothing to show for it. Antwann Frost recently filed a lawsuit claiming that Swizz called him up in 2007 to help put together a hit single for rapper Cassidy’s then incomplete album. According to the documents, Swizz assembled the drum patterns and Antwann created “all of the other original musical components that shaped and defined” the track that would become a hit and would spawn remixes by Kanye West, Ne-Yo and Chingy. Antwann was reportedly offered $5000 in cash and 5% ownership of the song after it was released. He rejected the offer and is now suing for $1.5 million.
