TLC is back! They have just released their new song “Meant To Be” which was written by Neyo. This is the first new song from TLC since 2005’s “I Bet”. The song is the only new song featured on their retrospective album 20 which is out in stores on Oct. 15th. The album coincides with the release of their Vh-1 biopic: Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story which premieres Oct. 21st. Meant To Be sounds like classic TLC. The song is a heartfelt track. It sounds as if TLC is singing all of their background vocals, and additional background vocals with Neyo. We like the track and cannot wait to hear their new full-length studio album. We are not sure if there will be a visual for the song, but at least we have new material to listen to. TLC has been making headlines all this year. First, they were honored by MTV Japan, Vh-1 mixtape festival, Drake brought them out during is OVO Fest, collaborating with J. Cole on a hit single, and now the movie. Check out the song Meant To Be down below and let us know what you think:
Britney Spears is back…well sort of. Britney has released the video for her new “Smurfs 2” soundtrack single Oh La La. The video features Britney’s two sons. Britney is sitting in the theatre with her children, when she gets zapped into the movie screen. She is seen dancing and playing with the Smurfs. Her sons come and join her again towards the end of the video. The video is okay. It looked like Britney was trying to hard to be happy, and look a bit uncomfortable. So far the song has peaked at #85 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #22 on the US Pop Songs (Billboard). Check out the video down below:
Last week, it was stated that Halle Berry is to play Aretha Franklin in the movie about the diva’s life. At the Golden Globes last night, Halle Berry shot down the rumors. She state that her inability to sing would be a huge obstacle for her taking on this role. Halle Berry stated:
“If I could carry a tune, I’d consider it,” she says. “Someone should tell Aretha that I can’t do her justice.”
However, this is what Aretha Franklin said about what she would like to see happen, while she was a guest on The Wendy Williams Show last week:
“For the last four years, we’ve been talking about (the film), and I have had a number of offers,” she says. “Unfortunately, they were not good offers. Now, we have something on the table. They have all of the financing on one project… (and are) in the process of writing things for me to approve… Halle Berry is my pick.”
SUPREME POV: We feel that this would be a great look for Halle Berry, however, we would like someone a bit more realistic to play Aretha Franklin. Stay tuned for more details on this story. No reps from either side have made a statement.
