The debut single by Canadian reggae fusion band Magic! “Rude” became a surprise hit. Listen to the lyrics ‘can I have your daughter for the rest of my life/you say I’ll never get your blessing till the day I die……/I’m gonna marry her anyway……’ cute, isn’t it? Remix version by Electronic DJ/producer Zedd made it a club anthem. Nice!
2. Go All Night – gorgon City feat. Jennifer Hudson
Absolutely love this!! I’ve been waiting for J Hud to do a 90’s Deep House song like this. This is sooo Kiesza! This is great.
3. Time For Love – Chris Brown
今回はBPM105くらいのちょうど爽やかに踊れる速さのR&Bです。ドレイクの”Hold On We’re Going Home”とつなげてかけたい、私の大好き系R&B。こういう爽やか系、最近なかなかでてこないので貴重、もっと作って欲しい!
Classic Chris Brown, “Time For Love” is mixing mainstream and pop elements with Up-Tempo R&B with BPM about 105, just perfect to dance to. Makes me wanna play this and shift to Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home.” This is my kind of fresh R&B!

R&B界のシンデレラ、故アリーヤのTV用伝記映画がアメリカの「ライフタイム・チャンネル」で11月15日に放映されることになりました。タイトルは「Aaliyah: Princess of R&B」。
1994年にリリースしたアリーヤのデビュー・アルバム、「Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number」は300万枚以上のセールスを記録、大ヒットとなりました。Rケリーがプロデュースしたアルバムは、ラフなヒップホップ・ビーツにアリーヤの繊細で透き通るような美しいヴォーカルをのせたアンバランスなところがとても新鮮で、ヒップホップ/R&B業界に新風を吹き込みました。ビヨンセやリアーナがディーヴァとして活躍するずっと前のことです。日本でもアリーヤのスウィートなヴォーカルと斬新なストリート・ファッションは一躍大人気を博しました。1995年、17歳になったばかりのアリーヤが初来日を果たしています。3枚目のアルバムを発表した直後の2001年、8月25日、飛行機事故で22歳という若さで亡くなっています。
Lifetime is set to premiere its Aaliyah Haughton biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B on November 15.
Before Beyoncé and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed ‘street but sweet’ Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from her debut on Star Search at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history.
Aaliyah’s uncle and former manager, Barry Hankerson, says the family is pissed that no one from the network contacted them about the movie. Hankerson says the family will block any attempt on Lifetime’s part to use any of Aaliyah’s music.
Movie’s original star, Zendaya Coleman dropped out because she did not feel “morally okay moving forward with the production” for a number of reasons, one being disagreements with Aaliyah’s family over music rights and more: ” The main reasons were the production value wasn’t there. There were complications with the music rights and I felt like it wasn’t being handled delicately,” she said.
But Lifetime doesn’t give a damn. Even though the Haughton family’s dissatisfaction they cast Alexandra Shipp as Aaliyah and Jackie Long as R. Kelly, Lyriq Bent as Barry Hankerson, and Elise Neal as Gladys Knight and the movie is made.
Aaliyah’s romantic relationship with Kelly was a major scandal in the early part of the “One In A Million” performer’s career. The two entertainers were secretly married in 1994 when Aaliyah was only 15 and Kelly was in his late 20’s. The marriage was eventually annulled.
According to TV talk show host also serves as executive producer Wendy Williams, “You will see how she meets R. Kelly, what her father and mother’s reaction was to R. Kelly, when it ends with R. Kelly, how she moves on to Dame Dash. But what you won’t see is the plane crash. I just thought that was distasteful.”
Aaliyah: Princess of R&B is set to premiere Saturday, November 15 on Lifetime.
