Music News: Newcomer Alja Jackson Writes for Beyoncé’s New Album

https://i1.wp.com/www.thisisrnb.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/beyonce-055-768x1023.jpg

Newcomer Alja Jackson has confirmed that she has done some writing for the new Beyoncé album.

“I’m listening to the record I wrote for Beyonce” she says “Oh mane! Sh*t snappin! So Pretty Girl Bad! ‘Bout to have B on dat PGB! She on it!”

More on Alja after the jump….

Alja Jackson is a new, up and coming singer/songwriter/rapper signed to Interscope Records/Geffen Records. She even runs her own label “LEFTFIELD

Alja Jackson has been in this music game for more then 5 years now. She is known for going against the norm, using guerilla tactics & strategies with a new sense of style & flair, with her eclectic musical taste.

“When my mother would drive me around in that old Toyota Corolla, all we had was that broken car radio. It was stuck on one station and that only played pop music. I listened to that a lot and then we got home I listened to R&B and hip-hop. That’s the music I knew I wanted to do when I became an artist. I knew I wanted to be an R&B/soul star”.

What she didn’t know is that pop music would make its influence known when she started writing and shaping her sound. Alja moved to NYC to be in the heartbeat of music and to be where she thought she would find fame and fortune. She sang background vocals for iconic artists like Maxi Priest and Sean Paul. She took meetings with labels, knowing that one day she would be a star. But NYC wasn’t the dream for Alja’ Jackson and than she moved to ATL

“I knew that I had to go home because I just wasn’t feeling the vibe. I knew that ATL was the new hotspot for music, so I moved.” Alja’ was motivated but everyone wasn’t digging her sound. “It’s not that they didn’t like my music. They liked my music, but I didn’t have a sound. Every artist needs to know their own voice, their sound, and I didn’t really have one..You have to take a minute to find out who you really are. A lot of artists don’t want to struggle, but that advice opened every door. I started working with all these producers and artists and it changed everything. Then, one day I was in the studio working with the Pussycat Dolls and the next day, I was in an artist meeting with Jimmy Iovine.” Alja’ slouched in the chair, sure that this was just another “we don’t get you and your style” meeting, but “Jesse Jane,” her vibrant alter ego, knew that this was it. “Jesse Jane” was right.

Interscope Records got it and signed her the next day.

As a songwriter Alja has written songs for Diddy-Dirty Money Trey Songz“Already taken{Co-wrote it with Ester Dean}”, and Sharaya {Missy Elliott’s new artist}-“What is Love”. And she has worked with many big names in the music industry such as producers Mad Scientist, Ike Dirty, Chuck Cha-Loa, MissyElliott, Timbaland and Pharrell Williams. It’s just  been confirmed that the singer will release “I’m the Prettiest Girl”, as the first single off her upcoming debut album. It’s also been confirmed that the single will have an alternate remix that will feature Lil Wayne and Missy. The video is said to be directed by Nicole Ehrlich who also directed Kelis’s video “Acapella”.

You can listen to the single below, with lyrics that go like “I’m Hotter Than Electricity In A Wire”:

Music News: Brandy enlists Rico Love & Bangladesh for New Album

R&B singerBrandy has now been confirmed to be working with producers Rico Love and Bangladesh for her upcoming new album, “Human”.

Rico states that he’s looking to deliver “timeless music” for the singer’s anticipated project.

Bangladesh states: “I just got a call from Brandy. She wants me to do her album—hard stuff”

Rico Love’s most noted songwriting credits include Kelly Rowland’s ‘Commander’ and Beyonce’s ‘Sweet Dreams’. He also worked on Usher’s ‘There Goes My Baby’.

You can currently catch Brandy on ‘Dancing With The Stars’. Brandy will be teamed with professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The pair have been practicing hard. Brandy is not really known for her dancing skills, but more for her beloved voice and acting gigs, it will be interesting to see if Brandy can keep up with some of the athletes on the show.

I have high hopes for Brandy‘s new album, “Human”. Here is a new track called, “Lifeguard”. The track will most likely not be on her upcoming project, but it is a cool treat for any Brandy fans. Let see what she has in-stored for us, and if she comes out with a bang and wins the dance ball trophy.

Wire Talk: Beyoncé to throw a “Party” for Fourth Album

Throw all your emotions to the rear and get ready to let loose as it seems Beyoncé’s fourth studio album will be all about the uptempos. The details are quickly emerging for this new album and Sean Garrett who worked with Knowles in the past (“Check On It,” “Get Me Bodied,” “Ring the Alarm,” “Upgrade U,” “Diva” and “Video Phone”) revealed the news at the 2010 MTV VMA’s:

“I am going in the studio with Beyoncé this week to work on her next record,” Garrett told the Music Mix at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. “I think we are doing a lot of up-tempo records for this one. She’s in such a good place right now in life that she is interested in making party music, definitely.”

During the closing of Beyoncé’s last concert of the I AM… tour, she announced a new album to be released by the end of this year. The Knowles clan usually keep their word when it comes to the release of Bey’s albums. The time period between her 1st and 2nd albums was 3 years and the period between her 2nd and 3rd was 2 years. The point we’re trying to get across is with her third album, not a single bit of news leaked right up until a month before the album’s release. This mean her fourth could sneak up on us like a heart attack.

Music News: Beyonce’ is Smokin’ Hot in New Music Video “Why Don’t You Love Me?”

A chain-smoking, teary eyed Beyonce’ plays “B.B. Homemaker” in her latest video, “Why Don’t You Love Me?” The song was written by her sister, Solange Knowles.
In the video, Beyonce’ portrays a homemaker from the 1950s era. The video gives off an old school feel as the Diva does everything from scrubbing floors to baking cookies, (all while looking completely fabulous of course)!

B.B. Homemaker tells her lover, “I got beauty, I got class/I got style and I got ass,” as she pleads to him trying to make sense of why he doesn’t love her. She ends strongly in a Dominatrix costume singing, “There’s nothin’ not to love about me/Maybe you’re just not the one/Or maybe you’re just plain dumb.”

Check out the songs powerful lyrics:

Now, now, now, honey
You better sit down and look around
Cause you must’ve bumped yo’ head
And I love you enough to talk some sense back into you, baby
I’d hate to see you come home, me the kids
And the dog is gone
Check my credentials…
I give you everything you want everything you need
Even your friends say I’m a good woman
All I need to know is why?

Why don’t you love me?
Tell me, baby, why don’t you love me
When I make me so damn easy to love?
And why don’t you need me?
Tell me, baby, why don’t you need me
When I make me so damn easy to need?

I got beauty, I got class
I got style, and I got ass
And you don’t even care to care
Looka here
I even put money in the bank account
Don’t have to ask no one to help me out
You don’t even notice that

Why don’t you love me?
Tell me, baby, why don’t you love me
When I make me so damn easy to love?
Why don’t you need me?
Tell me, baby, why don’t you need me
When I make me so damn easy to need?

I got beauty, I got heart
Keep my head in them books, I’m sharp
But you don’t care to know I’m smart
Now, now now now now now now
I got moves in your bedroom
Keep you happy with the nasty things I do
But you don’t seem to be in tune
Ooh…..

Why don’t you love me?
Tell me, baby, why don’t you love me
When I make me so damn easy to love?
Why don’t you need me?
Tell me, baby, why don’t you need me
When I make me so damn easy to need?

There’s nothing not to love about me
No, no, there’s nothing not to love about me
I’m lovely
There’s nothing not to need about me
No, no, there’s nothing not to need about me
Maybe you’re just not the one
Or maybe you’re just plain……. DUMB
