The Young Money songstress, Shanell remixes Lil Wayne’s “How To Love” with a sultry version for the ladies. Belting uplifting lyrics like, “I just want you to know, that you deserve the best, you’re incredible” and what with Weezy’s original version, and all the discussions on whether or not Drake is ‘soft,’ it seems Young Money is really digging deep and getting personal these days.
Shanell is currently in the studio working on her debut album before hitting the road with Lil Wayne for the second leg of his ‘I Am Music’ tour next month.
With her latest album 4 out now, Beyonce will go under the MTV spotlight tonight (June 30) for a half an hour special titled Beyoncé: Year of 4, airing at 7pm EST, which will take viewers on a journey through the artistic process of creating 4.
The special was filmed during B’s time off, as she set out to discover where to go next in her career. It kicks as she wraps her “I Am” Tour finding herself at a crossroads before giving into her mother’s advice to take some time out.
“Year of 4″ is the story of Beyoncé’s return as an independent woman navigating her company through the rough waters of the music industry, making a personal album that’s unlike anything she’s ever done. After the much anticipated “I AM…” tour ends, Beyoncé finds herself in dire need of a break. Being a workaholic, and wholly dedicated to her career, she never considered taking a year off, but finally listens to her mother’s advice and disappears from the public’s eye. On her year off, Beyoncé travels the world, spends time with her family and husband, Jay-Z (documented by her with her own camera). She gives herself time to reflect on what she’s accomplished and decide what the next chapter of her life will look like.
She refuses to let her meteor-like career pass her by and decides to take control of her business, while making an album that is heartfelt and personal. She returns to the studio where she opens up the range of musical choices and invites artists of all genres and styles to collaborate with her. Drawing from the music she grew up listening to in the 90′s, like Michael Jackson, Prince and Boyz ll Men, she creates a sound that is warm and familiar, yet futuristic and experimental. On “4,” Beyoncé makes a conscious effort to do something completely different without playing to the mainstream expectations of her… and she succeeds.
