[New Music Tuesday] SYLEENA JOHNSON Keeps Soul Alive w/ CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy

Yes, this R&B Diva is back and better than ever! There’s something distinctively rich about Syleena Johnson’s voice. You can tell, this thing she does with these notes are truly God’s gift. I had a chance to chat with the soul crooner last month for her private listening party, held in LA and was blown away by the passionate conviction of

CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy.

Chapter 6: Couples Therapy

Stemming from communication battles in her own marriage, Syleena took to the pen and pad to express the hardships and rewards of being in a committed relationship.

“My husband and I recently realized we have some communication issues…so we took to therapy last year around September, and then just recently they asked us to do Marriage Bootcamp on WeTV, so we just filmed that which was amazing for our marriage.” via AllHipHop.com. 

On the album, you’ll find a track called ‘Silence’, which is a relationship record. It’s a plea from a woman ‘s perspective, asking how to salvage it? With lyrics beginning the track…“There’s so much noise in this silence…” Mirroring the pain in the relationship.

in, “Perfectly Worthless”, Syleena takes on a character who contemplates murder and suicide. Here the couple had been together since college.  She got pregnant and gave birth to a still born . The couple’s relationship struggled because of the devastation. They decide to go see a therapist and the unthinkable happens…The husband ends up cheating with the therapist and has a baby with her…You can see the story unfold in the video above.  “It was real Kettle One, straight vodka. I really wanted to be in this character.”, says Syleena.

Don’t get me wrong now, Chapter 6: Couples Therapy has some sexy, sultry bangas too. How else do you think you’re going to keep that bond growing strong 🙂

“…I like little nasty songs…it comes from growing up with Prince.” The diva mentions during the right before the playback…OKAAAY!

With song like “My Love”and “Boom”, this is just in time for booed up season!!!

+“No Beginners”, featuring Willie Taylor from Day 26, was originally written for the King of Soul R. Kelly. And, trust when I say, the track isn’t missing him at all.  NO SHADE,  but Syleena had to respectfully decline, using the Sarah Palin “Thanks but no thanks”, when referring to The Astronauts deal. Stating, “Every single I had was his (Robert Kelly’s). Possibly even overshadowed by his celebrity. But, Syleena expressed that she will always love them, (R. Kelly/Wayne Williams). “However, we’re all growing and not necessarily in the same direction, nor needed for our projects to do well. “

Syleena posts me portraying one of my favorite songs from Chapter 6 on her Instagram..."MY LOVE"

I can’t scream it anymore…YOU HAVE TO GET THIS ALBUM NOW!!! Soul music lovers have been begging for a record like this, and now we have it!

For those of you, who didn’t know…CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy isn’t just her 11th release, it’s her 1st Soundtrack to the MOVIE…Titled “Couples Therapy”!!! Yes indeed she’s a BOSS!!!

RHOA’s Porsha Williams Gets Arrested for Bitch Slapping Kenya Moore

I hear Porsha ends up wailing on that ass w/ Kenya's own wand lol!
I hear Porsha ends up wailing on that ass w/ Kenya’s own wand lol!

Honestly, it was a long time coming. How many times can Kenya talk about someone’s Husband, Mother, Children, Friends, Careers, Animals and whatever else she can think of, without expecting to get her ass whooped?

I continue to stay down w/ #TeamTwirl, but I sincerely rock w/ Porsha. She may be slow on the witty responses, but she stands firm in what she believes in and I respect that.  so, here’s the get down on the RHOA Smack Down:

Porsha Williams of the Bravo network’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” is facing a charge of battery after fellow cast member Kenya Moore told police she was attacked during filming of the upcoming reunion show.

ATL police were called to the Biltmore Hotel on 3/27, where Kenya told an officer that Porsha assaulted her.

Although, Kenya was unable to fill out a statement at the time because of filming, an arrest warrant was issued later that day.

On, Wednesday evening at the Fulton County Jail, Porsha turned herself in and was released that night. The charge against Ms. Williams is a misdemeanor. Thank GOD!!!

Lookin' good girl, even for a mug shot!!! Go head!!!
Lookin’ good girl, even for a mug shot!!! Go head!!!

I know her former husband Kordell Stewart is happy she didn’t beat his ass!!! And, we all know he deserved a grandiose bitch slap!

I knew there will be a time, when Kenya will meet her match...Only so much Porsha could take! #PopOffDotCom
I knew there would be a time, when Kenya will meet her match…Only so much Porsha could take! #PopOffDotCom

Well, hear that Porsha claims the battery charges are unfounded and that she looks forward to clearing her name. Plus, she plans to contest the charge and file aggravated assault charges against Kenya.

This is not over to say the least. Stay tuned!!!

Check out the sneak peek of the RHOA Reunion Special, airing this Sunday, April 20, 2014 on VH1.

Sextape or Straight Porn? LHHATL’s Mimi & Nikko’s Vivid Debut!

If you know of me, you know I’m sooooooo #ProNaked !!!

But this right here, this right here, in my best Katt Williams’ voice, is straight PORN!!! Yea, I said it! Vivid is doing them a favor, not disclosing they made a previous PORNO DEAL, by hiding it behind Social Media infused #SexTape viral frenzy!

Mic check 1 x 2 x 1 x 2...
Mic check 1 x 2 x 1 x 2…

I’m all for it girl! Get over Stevie, move on, find someone new, not necessarily a look alike, but find someone who’s diggin all over you. But, was that Nikko? Is that Nikko? I know first hand, once you’ve been sex deprived, not because you can’t get it, but because you’re still holding true to a relationship, that has far from left you, you stumble across some “Withholdings” 🙂 and, every stroke is like a live symphony 😉

But, not only does this dick have you in concert halls globally, but on front street too.

How can you come back from this? Fire your publicist who tells you to call it a #SEXTAPE !!! Let the public know, VH1 ain’t paying nearly enough, to have 24 hour access to your personal lives. Shiiiiiiiiit, bills still need to be met…But at what cost?

Stevie AND Nikko can get away w/ this, because they are MEN.

This is nothing but, an old school ‘Notches Tournament’  to them and you fell for it.  What? For more screen time? Porn side deals to ensure financial security??? I just want to say, fuck the viewer. Girl, you have nothing to prove to us. We live in a 24/7, at the palm of your hand, front row ticket, to EVERYTHING these days. Your daughter could literally roll over on your phone and pull this shit up!!! Not good!

((( JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DO IT…DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD!!! )))

Why shit on your brand like this? I know in heartbreak we make silly decisions, but  you’re a BOSS, let you tell it, so this had to be calculated. Timed to 7 days from your Season Premiere original date,…??? I’m baffled. Nothing about this video screams, Fiance, Love, Step Dad,  Romance, Future….

Just hit it and quit it. You put another one on Girl…

To your credit and your decline.  ((( #Typecast )))

Fuckin raw in ATL, I’m not from there, but even I know that’s a NO NO, shit, anywhere in the world, on some real shit, no condom is a  #NONO.  Homosexuality and Heterosexuality make major mistakes in unprotected sex, however when you mix both of them, like those gay rumors about Nikko, you double your chances on that death bed, give back confession video, to young women, infomercial.  True Story.

Black Women will surely take a hit for this one. Scheduled Visitation and Child Support payments will tank to an all time low, because men will argue the mother’s of their children are debuting in sextapes across america lol! You know I had to throw some late night comedy innnnnnn hahaha!

But [Black Women], dayum, we keep shooting ourselves in the foot. Not realizing the bullet goes straight through to our daughters.

Imagine that!

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta airs, Monday, May 5, 2014 on VH1. See the Super Trailer Here >>>

GETTING TO KNOW VINCENT BRANTLEY OF HOPELESSLY IN JUNE…

So, it was the end of a Hollywood week. Although, I was born in Inglewood, this SEA to LAX kicked my ass trying to keep up w/
BET AWARDS celebrity parties EVERYWHERE!!! I mean, I promise I was trying to still toast it up @ Rolling Stones for the official awards afterparty w/ Fabolous and DJ Clue, but ya girl had to throw in the towel and head to the hotel. In hindsight, I must say, I am so happy that I did, because that’s how I ran into Mr. Brantley. Sooooooo, smooth, just laid back lending an ear to child actor Orlando Brown, flowing a hot 16.

You know me, I had to chime in to see what was going on and they all graciously invited me into their circle and told me about their upcoming projects, including the movie HOPELESSLY IN JUNE. See, Vincent failed to mention that he was not only the director, but he starred in it too 😉

It was a sweet surprise, because once I got back home to the SEA, I rented it via Amazon and it’s now one of my favorite movies. Especially, living in Seattle where the dating scene seems hopeless among the
28+, Urban Professionals
, so it was a refreshing point of view.

Here’s a quick summary of HOPELESSLY IN JUNE:

Dating in Los Angeles has been cruel to Daleon Myers, a financial analyst from a staunch Baptist family. But hope emerges when he falls in love with June Flowers, a successful businesswoman whose family is an extremely liberal Hollywood couple. It will take a lot to help them overcome their cultural differences and find the love they both have so long desired.

HOPELESSLY IN JUNE...NOW AVAILABLE on DVD!!!

So, when you have an opportunity to slow down from your grueling work week, take a moment out for yourself and/or make it a great date night and pick up HOPELESSLY IN JUNE!!! You will be glad that you did!!!

VINCENT BRANTLEY BIO:

It was a summer night in Los Angeles. Two teenagers followed a
brown classic Mercedes Benz into the parking lot of an all night
chicken spot on Crenshaw Blvd. The teen in the driver’s seat was
producer/songwriter Vincent Brantley the son of a south central
record store owner. Vincent sat watching as top music executive
Jheryl Busby of MCA records exited his car. Quickly grabbing his
boom box, Vincent approached the music mogul and began to
perform for him right there in the parking lot. The song was “Cool it
Now”
and it was soon to become the number one song in the
country performed by R&B group NEW EDITION.

Many years later, after multiple platinum successes, and many accolades in the music industry, Vincent realized he needed another avenue to create. He moved his North Hollywood studio into his house and signed up at a local Jr. College for some refresher classes. Unsure of his path, his thinking was sparked by a theatre professor who was astounded by Vincent’s performance in a two man play. She suggested he get an agent right away. But it would be three years of working nonstop with some of Hollywood’s most notable acting coaches before he would start to make his moves. Feeling empowered by his training, Vincent knew that starting at the back of Hollywood’s proverbial line was not in his character. So he began developing his own material, adding screenwriting and directing to his studies. But it wasn’t until his mentoring relationship with
Emmy Award Winning director Michael King, and well known actor/director Mario Van Peebles that his potential began to crystallize. The full exhibition of his talent can be best seen in the recently completed feature film “Hopelessly In June” written and directed by, and starring, Vincent. Some of the notables appearing alongside Vincent are Keith David, Ed Asner, Peter Jason, Tiny Lister Jr., and Ella Joyce.

HOPELESSLY IN JUNE is now available on DVD!!!
