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”
TLC is the BIGGEST SELLING female group of all time, and their catalog is extremely extensive. In 2012, they covered a song called “Rainbow. “Rainbow” is originally a song by a band called – ” L’Arc~en~Ciel.” TLC did a cover of it for a tribute album that’s getting released in Japan. Check the song out below:
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:
As expected, Lady Gaga’s third studio album Artpop debuts at #1 on the Billboard charts with 258,000 copies sold. Now, this is a far cry from 2011’s Born This Way which sold 1.1 million copies sold first week. Now, even though she sold BTW for $0.99 with Amazon, she STILL was able to sell over 600,000 copies of that album first week at full-retail prices. So the question is, are people tired of Lady Gaga already? We were expecting Gaga to do at least 500,000 first week. However, this is still a #1 album for her, and the first single reach Top 10 status. She is still pretty relevant. We are not a fan of the song with her and R. Kelly at all, and haven’t heard the album. If you heard the album, let us know your thoughts. Anyway, congrats to you Lady Gaga.
Miley Cyrus is the “it” girl of the moment. Yesterday, I as I was walking past Times Square, there were hundreds of fans waiting for her at her Planet Hollywood album signing. I had no clue she was even going to be there (LOL). Her first single off of Bangerz is still getting a lot of airplay, and various renditions covers are being made. This time as the pop star stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, she did a acapella version with Fallon, and the Roots of her smash single We Can’t Stop. We LOVE this version of the song. Check it out below, and tell us what you think:
Drake gave us one of the biggest treats of the week, his visual for second single “Hold On, We’re Going Home”. The video features rapper A$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!
