Grand Hustle’s B.o.B. has had a major few months. The Hip-Hop newcomer’s debut album B.O.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray has sold over 400,000 copies and his first three singles have made the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, with “Nothin On You” featuring Bruno Mars and “Airplanes” featuring Haley Williams taking the #1 spot. While his label head T.I is on hiatus, the 21 year old star is holding his own. He is nominated for two Soul Train Awards, but we aren’t the only people recognizing his imense talent. He’s nominated for two American Music Awards, two People’s Choice Awards, and it was recently announced that he will be one of the artists performing on the Grammy Nominations special airing December 1st. It’s probably safe to say he’ll nab a Grammy nod as well. Don’t belive the hype? Check out B.oB in action at the MTV Europe Music Awards:
T.I. continues to call on some of Soul Train’s favorite ladies to belt out hooks on records for his upcoming album No Mercy, out December 7th. First “Got Your Back” featuring Keri Hilson (which is nominated for Best Hip Hop Song of the Year) and now he teams up with Jazmine Sullivan—who will be performing at this year’s awards—for “Dying In Your Arms.” Check out the song and SOUND OFF in the comments section below.
Quincy Jones—a definite Soul Train Awards legend—has been churning out musical gems for over five decades. With his new album, Q Soul Bossa Nostra, out November 9th; Jones sat with BET News to talk about the differences between old school and contemporary artists. In the exclusive interview he talks about how some artists of today are falling short of their predecessors because they are on a different mission.
“We came up in another kind of environment where all we care about was just being a good musician, we didn’t care about money or fame,” Jones explained. “That never crossed our mind. I’m talking about the ‘40s and 50s, you know? We just wanted to be good.”
Maybe “good” is relative because critics have a lot to say about Jones’ new album, which consists of contemporary remakes of songs from his extensive catalog of hits. Some are appalled that the musical great would allow T-Pain to cover Michael Jackson’s “PYT” using auto-tune. Others feel the original version of “Secret Garden” is a classic that should have went untouched. Whatever the case, we implore you to pick up the album and decide for yourself.
