Mariah Carey ft. Da Brat “4 Real 4 Real”
Mariah Carey has so many hits under her belt, 18 #1 singles to be exact. In 2008, Mariah Carey released her platinum-selling album E=MC2. That album spawned her last #1 single to date “Touch My Body.” It also spawned a song that she recorded titled “4 Real 4 Real”. The song was produced by Jermaine Dupri, and we love the delivery of the lyrics Mariah does. The song also features a rap by Da Brat. Check out down below “4 Real 4 Real”

Brandy “Should I Go”
Brandy is known as the “Vocal Bible” in this industry, and if you listen to “Should I Go,” you would know why. “Should I Go” is the last track on her 2004 Gold album Afrodisiac. The song samples the Coldplay track ‘Clocks’. Listen to her harmonies all throughout this song, it will make you just feel so warm inside. Check out the song down below:
Miley Cyrus is the “it” girl of the moment. Yesterday, I as I was walking past Times Square, there were hundreds of fans waiting for her at her Planet Hollywood album signing. I had no clue she was even going to be there (LOL). Her first single off of Bangerz is still getting a lot of airplay, and various renditions covers are being made. This time as the pop star stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, she did a acapella version with Fallon, and the Roots of her smash single We Can’t Stop. We LOVE this version of the song. Check it out below, and tell us what you think:
Drake gave us one of the biggest treats of the week, his visual for second single “Hold On, We’re Going Home”. The video features rapper A$AP Rocky, and features Drake and his team rescuing a damsel in distress. The video is a mini-movie, and does not see any performance shots of Drake actually singing the song. We love this song here at Supreme Fabulosity, the single is Drake second Top 10 single (currently #9), off of his new album Nothing Was The Same. The album is in stores now, everyone please go pick up a PAID copy of it. Check out the video for “Hold On, We’re Going Home” down below, let us know what you think:
DMX is not having a great week. After just being arrested last week, DMX filed for bankruptcy on Monday, July 29th. According to reports from The Wall Street Journal, the man known as Earl Simmons filed documents stating that he had about $50,000 worth of assets while having debt between $1 and $10 million. DMX justified filing for Chapter 11 by saying it would enable him to reorganize his financial affairs. A lot of the debt DMX is in comes from back child support. he owes a little over a million dollars in child support. Another major part of the debt comes from X leasing cars. He owes $20,000 in car payments, which is crazy for someone who hasn’t had a legit license in a long time.
This is what DMX’s publicist had to say about the ordeal:
“DMX’s financial strains have been inhibiting his career for several years. Poor financial management by prior representation have caused him to be ineligible to retain a passport. The purpose of this bankruptcy filing is for reorganization so he can perform for his fans oversees. We are currently planning a tour in Europe and Africa for the fall of 2013.”
Our hearts go out to DMX here at Supreme Fabulosity. This is a man who has sold 30 million records worldwide. His debut album alone sold 5 million copies worldwide. We pray that the man who had 5 consecutive #1 albums gets his life back on track. We have always loved DMX has a lyricist. DMX latest album Undisputed debuted at #19 on the Billboard 200 with 17,000 copies sold, as far as Jan. 2013, the album has sold 44,000 copies. We wish you the best of luck DMX!
‘Scandal’ actress Kerry Washington tied the knot on June 24th in Blaine County, Idaho. This is a surprise because no one seemed to know that she was engaged.
E! Online and Us Weekly subsequently confirmed the marriage, with the latter citing records that show Washington and Asomugha filed for a marriage license in Idaho. Washington’s parents reportedly served as witnesses.
“It has been recorded in the Blaine County clerk’s office that Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington have been married on the 24th of June in the town of Hailey, Idaho,” a representative for the clerk’s office told Us Weekly.
The notoriously private actress and football player have reportedly been dating for one year, since summer 2012. This is the first marriage for Washington, who was previously engaged to actor David Moscow in 2007. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
The numbers are in! As expected with very little promotion, Kanye West’s “Yeezus” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart. “Yeezus” sold 328,000 copies first week. Congratulations is also in order to our friend J. Cole who debuted at #2 with his album “Born Sinner”. “Born Sinner” sold an impressive 297,922 copies this week. There hasn’t been two hip-hop albums occupying the top 2 spots since Kanye West & Nicki Minaj in 2010. J. Cole’s first album debuted at #1 (218,000+ copies) on Billboard, however, it sold less first week than his new album did. Honorable mention goes out to Kelly Rowland. Her 4th studio album “Talk A Good Game” debuted at #4. This is her second Top 5 debut. The album sold 65, 913 copies. This is a big feat. for Kelly because her album has not garnered a hit single. Congratulations to all three artists, and please go out and support their music.
