日本ではNBA(プロバスケリーグ)ほどの知名度はないけれど、この時期NBAの影が薄くなるほどアメリカが熱狂するのがアメリカのアマチュアスポーツの祭典、それがNCAAマーチ・マッドネス。なにしろ甲子園と六大学野球とラグビーが一度にやってきたかのような盛り上がり。ヒップホップ世代ならぜひ知っておきたいイベントだ。
毎年3月の大学バスケリーグNCAAの決勝リーグは、文字通りアメリカ人が「マッド」になる1ヶ月。将来のNBAスーパースターがひしめく大学バスケだがそれだけでない、ブラケットと呼ばれるトーナメント表予想にお金を懸けるから見る方も真剣。

そのフィナーレが週末をはさんで行われているFinal Four(ファイナル・フォア=準決勝)とチャンピオンシップの2試合。開催地インディアナポリスではファイナル・フォア・フェスティバルと題しさまざまなイベントも。 実は決勝よりも、4強が戦う土曜日のファイナル・フォアの2試合の方ががぜん注目度が高い。特に今年はシーズン無敗のケンタッキーが大方の予想を裏切り敗退するという大どんでん返しドラマがに全米が絶叫。負けたケンタッキーの地元では一時は暴動になりかけたとか。

ゲームの間にはリアナがパフォーマンス、新曲American Oxigenをフルバージョンで歌うなどイベントを盛り上げた。 全米一を決めるゲームはウィスコンシン大とデューク大の間で戦われ、現地時間月曜日夜9時にティップ・オフ。 (シェリーめぐみ)

Rihanna Performs at March Madness Festival! In Japan, March Madness and less known in less known compared to NBA. But if you belong to Japanese hip hop generation, there are many things to celebrate. Our favorite Rihanna headlined Day 2 of the March Madness Music Festival at White River State Park in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday night (April 4) and there she performed live the full version of her new song “American Oxygen” which will appear on the R8 album. It was televised between the two semi-final games.

Speaking of the games “undefeated” Kentucky was finally beaten by Wisconsin and the bracket was completely busted. Championship game will be held on Monday at 9pm between Wisconsin and Duke.

Fabolous

Знаменитый японский женщин-ди-джеем в Нью-Йорке

1. Ball Drop – Fabolous & French Montana

渋いホーンのサンプリングがちょっと懐かしい感じのするトラックですが、その反面French Montanaのいつもの調子のラップに 最近なかなかまた人気のベテラン・ラッパー Fabolous。かれももうかなりの年齢なはずなのに、見た目はデビュー当時と変わらない風貌。(今調べたら 38歳。本当か?だいたいみんな5歳はサバよんでそうだが) 前回話した様に Pharellと同様、年取らない系です。Jay Zも凄い年なのにかなり若い。おじさんぽい見た目なら、今時ラッパーとのコラボのオファー来ないかもですよね..。この曲は断然Hip Hopオンリーのクラブで大人気。

Fab and French teamed up for “Ball Drop” featuring a familiar horn sampling. Fab has been in the game for the longest but he looks exactly the same since the first time he came to the scene. According to his bio he is 38, really? Maybe he’s lying his age, I don’t know but he definitely belongs to Pharrell’s never-age-club. Same thing with Jay-Z, he’s forever young. If you look too old you better not expect any offers to collaborate with young rappers. “Ball Drop” is the party anthem at clubs exclusively playing Hip-Hop.

2. Rihanna – B#tch Better Have My Money

新しくでるRihannaのアルバムからの一曲。かなりゆっくり目の曲で、ちょっとレゲエテイストも入ってるような..確実に黒人のお姉さん達におおいに支持されそうな一曲の予感です。だいたいパーティーでそういうお姉さんの団体が入って来てつまらなそうにしてたら、Rihanna、BeyonceかCiaraをメドレーでかけてみれば ご機嫌にできます。

A trap song with a hip hop beat and a reggae flavor from Rihanna’s new album will surely be embraced by black girls. The best way to make a group of bored ladies on the floor is to play songs by Rihanna, Beyonce and Ciara back to back. You can make them smile.

3. Slow Motion – Trey Songz

いいですねー、なんか懐かしい感じの正統派スロー・ジャム、セクシー系です。前で言うとまさに Genuwine 系のバラードです。最近あまりなかったような気がするんで嬉しいです。この曲、なぜかお兄さん達からやけにリクエスト来ます。普通お姉さんからのはずなのに。Trey Songzって地道に人気凄いです。

Trey Songz’ classic slow jam reminisces smooth ballads of 90’s R&B singer Genuwine. Nice and sexy. It’s like the situation is reversed mostly guys who request for this song, not ladies…….why? Because he is Trey Songz!

Lifetime is set to premiere its Aaliyah Haughton biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B on November 15.

Aaliyah - Alexandra Shipp 4
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 and her familyAaliyah’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.

Dame Dash
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.

Shakira and Rihanna

Shakira and Rihanna

1             Can’t Remember To Forget You – Shakira feat. Rihanna

Shakiraの新曲はなんとフューチャリングにRihanna。前にBeyonceとコラボしていたのを思い出しました。二人が自慢の腰フリフリダンスを満載した目がハートのミュージックビデオでした。今回はちょっぴりレゲエ調。Rihannaを意識してなのかな。Hotな二人のビデオも楽しみです!

Shakira, Rihanna team up for steamy “Can’t Remember To Forget You”, Shakira’s new single off her new album. Remember Shakira collaborated with Beyonce for “Beatiful Lier” in 2007 shaking their pretty booties? This time she came back with a song with Reggae flavor. Is it Riri’s influence……..?

2.         Loyal – Chris Brown f/ Lil Wayne & French Montana

East CoastバージョンとWest Coastバージョンがあって、基本Chris Brown f/ Lil WayneはどちらもおなじなんですがフューチャリングにEastにはFrench Montana、WestにはToo Shortとなっています。クラブでリクエストが来ているのですぐにブレークすること間違いなしです。

Chris Brown enlisted Lil’ Wayne and French Montana for his new track, “Loyal.” They released East Coast and West Coast versions. East features French Montana, West adds Too Short but basically the same song. Watch out! It’ll break soon!

3.         Feelin’ Myself – Will. I. Am f/ Miley Cyrus, French Montana & Wiz Khalifa

これまたDJ Mustardさんプロデュース、Twerk色濃いノリのいい曲です。
Mileyちゃん引っ張りダコですね。パーティーでTwerk踊って、私ってめちゃいけてるでしょ的な内容の、ポップなパーティーソング。

DJ Mustard produced Twerk song “Feelin’ Myself” is a great pop party song featuring pop’s reigning queen Miley Cyrus.
