Grammy winning R&B singer, rapper, dancer, graffiti artist, illustrator and the first male lead artist to have his debut single top the Billboard Hot 100 in 8 years with Run It! feat. Juelz Santana, 2005, Breezy is undoubtedly a multifaceted artist. To add to this, he is the father of Royalty, a princess and the inspiration for his 7th studio album “Royalty”.
It’s undeniable his ability as a musician, dancer and all-round entertainer. At the 54th Annual Grammy Awards (February 12th, 2012) his 4th studio album F.A.M.E. won 2011 – Best R&B Album and a huge number of other awards and nominations ranging from his debut as a 16 year old in 2005 to his most recent projects.
Brown’s career is long-lived, pristine and all about his music with hits such as “Turn Up The Music”, “Fine China” and successful collaborations with Kid Ink on his hit “Show Me” and Sevyn Streeter on “It Won’t Stop (Remix)” in recent years.
His sixth album X was due to be released near to the end of 2013 but was pushed back due to (here we go again) Chris having to attend to his legal troubles and serve a stint in rehab. It was eventually released during the summer of 2014. Following X, Chris and Tyga released the follow up to their 2010 mixtape Fan of a Fan at the beginning of 2015, titled Fan of a Fan: The Album. The album spawned the hits “Ayo” and “Bitches N Marijuana”.
After being in the music industry for over 10 years, Chris is accustomed to being in the limelight and is here to stay

Featured in Fifth Harmony are vocalists Camila Cabello, Normani Kordei Hamilton, Lauren Jauregui, Allyson Brooke Hernandez, and Dinah Jane Hansen. Originally, the members of the band entered The X Factor competition individually as solo artists and were then placed together by judge Simon Cowell to compete in the “groups” category. Ultimately, Fifth Harmony finished in third place behind Carly Rose Sonenclar and first-place winner Tate Stevens. After The X Factor, Fifth Harmony signed to Epic Records in the U.S. and Cowell’s Syco Records in Britain. The group’s initial EPs, Better Together and the Spanish-language Juntos, appeared in 2013.

Included on 7/27 were the singles “The Life” and “Work from Home,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign. ~ Matt Collar

When the U.K. press began dubbing Adele “the next Amy Winehouse” in late 2007, the hype didn’t touch upon the singer/songwriter influence found in the Londoner’s music.

Meghan Trainor ditches doe-eyed doo-wop for fierce, funky, radio-ready pop hits and proves she’s more than a one-hit wonder. On Thank You, the “All About That Bass” star trades her retro-R&B style for Bruno Mars-esque vocal flexing and hip-hop-level bravado, flaunting her success on “Watch Me Do” (“I’m the–shhh, be quiet, I been on the no-hater diet”) and sending up sleaze-balls on the power-anthem “NO”. The standout track, a trop-pop smash titled “I Won’t Let You Down”, was written, fittingly, for herself: “I’ve made my mistakes, probably more than I can count”, she sings, ”so from this day on, I won’t let you down”.
