After several pushbacks, Hilson’s debut album In a Perfect World… was released in March 2009.[7] According to the singer, the title of the album is her way of “saying nothing in the world is perfect and no person in it is, either. None of us are exempt from certain hardships and heartbreaks and we all have something about our lives that we’d change if only we could – be it body image, financial status, love life…[8] It was really important for me to write songs that women can relate to from real situations. I didn’t want to do an album that painted myself as perfect because no matter how things look, no one is.[9] I called it that with the ellipses – dot dot dot – because it’s an incomplete statement. I wanted to talk about how nobody’s exempted from the realities of life and all those things.”[10] It was executively produced by Timbaland and Polow da Don. In a Perfect World… debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 and at number one on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart with first week sales of approximately 94,000 copies,[11] and earned generally favorable reviews from music critics who noted it a “seductive debut CD full of slick, radio-friendly cuts.”[12] and was eventaully certified gold by the RIAA.[13]

“Energy” was released as the album’s lead single on May 20, 2008. It reached a peak of number seventy-eight on the US Billboard Hot 100,[1] number twenty-one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart,[1] and achieved minor success in the UK.[14] The song became a success in New Zealand, where it reached a peak of number two and gained a gold accreditation there.[15] In October 2008 Hilson collaborated with fellow singer Chris Brown on a song titled “Superhuman”, which reached the top twenty in Ireland and New Zealand.[16] “Return the Favor” which features Timbaland was released as the album’s second single. It peaked within the top twenty in the UK,[17] Ireland,[18] and Belgium.[19] “Turnin Me On” which featured Lil Wayne became Hilson’s first top twenty hit as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100, where it reached number fifteen on the chart.[1] The song reached number two on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, becoming Hilson’s first top five hit on the chart.[1]

“Knock You Down”, a collaboration with Kanye West and Ne-Yo, was released as the album’s fourth single. The song has proven to be Hilson’s most successful worldwide single to date. It peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 for three non-consecutive weeks and topped the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.[1] It additionally appeared the in top ten of five other countries and certified platinum in New Zealand[20] and gold in Australia. The song received a nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 52nd Grammy Awards. A reissue of the album, included previously unreleased songs such as “I Like”. The song was used for the German film Zweiohrküken[21] and became Hilson’s first number one hit in Germany[22] which certified platinum there.[23] Meanwhile Hilson continued appearing on single releases by several artists throughout 2009 including Plies’ single “Medicine”, Fabolous’ “Everything, Everyday, Everywhere,” Nas’ “Hero” and Sean Paul’s “Hold My Hand”.

In January 2010 Hilson guest featured on Akon’s charity single “Oh Africa”. She was also part of the extended A-list of musical artists during the recording session of “We Are the World 25 for Haiti”. Hilson also made guest features on other singles including “Million Dollar Girl” by Trina and T.I’s “Got Your Back”. In April 2010 it was revealed she was the new face of Avon, replacing singer Jennifer Hudson.[24]

Her second studio album No Boys Allowed was released on December 21, 2010. Hilson explained that, “No Boys Allowed is a deeply personal project designed to bring women to their feet. The provocative title, is not what you may think. It’s not about excluding men. It’s more about women understanding that there comes a time in your life when you want a man. A real man. A grown up. Not a boy. And that’s not a bad thing. I write from a female perspective, but I’m also telling men what women are really thinking and feeling about them.”[25] The album debuted at number 11 on the Billboard 200 with 102,000 copies sold. Though it sold 8,000 copies more than her debut album, In a Perfect World…, it failed to match that album’s debut chart position of number four.[26]

Ne-Yo Biography:

Ne-Yo emerged into the recording industry as member of the Las Vegas-based quartet Envy. After the group disbanded in 2000, Ne-Yo was signed to Columbia Records, but, after recording his first album, was dropped from the label before he could even release it. American singer Marques Houston happened to hear one of Ne-Yo’s tracks, “That Girl”, which was supposed to be the latter’s debut single off his then-unreleased album. Houston rerecorded “That Girl” and released it as a single to his 2003 album MH. The release of the song led to Ne-Yo being recognized as a top songwriter.

For the next two years, Ne-Yo continued writing songs, some of which have not been officially released. He contributed songs to American singer Teedra Moses’s 2004 album Complex Simplicity, Christina Milian’s It’s About Time, and the American boy band Youngstown, though all of which failed to give Ne-Yo much attention from the mainstream. Ne-Yo has also contributed songs to American singer Mary J. Blige, B2K, Faith Evans and Musiq, among others.

Ne-Yo broke into the music industry after “Let Me Love You”, a song he wrote for American singer Mario, reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and later stayed on the top spot for nine weeks. After the successful release, Tina Davis, former A&R representative for Def Jam Recordings, arranged an informal meeting with label head L.A. Reid. Originally, Ne-Yo was not seeking a new contract, but, after he had performed for them, he was signed by American hip hop artist Jay-Z, then-CEO of Def Jam.

“Ne-Yo” was coined by a producer Ne-Yo once worked with, Big D Evans, because Evans claimed that Ne-Yo sees music as Neo sees the matrix. As a joke, Evans started calling him Ne-Yo until everybody was accustomed to it.

In early 2006, Ne-Yo released his debut album, In My Own Words, through Def Jam. Boosted by its popular second single, “So Sick”, the album debuted at number one on Billboard 200, selling over 301,000 copies in the first week. During the same week, the single had reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Later singles released were “When You’re Mad” and “Sexy Love”, which peaked at number 15 and number 7, respective. The album has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for a shipment of over one million units.

His sophomore album, Because of You, was released on May 1, 2007, and, fueled by its lead single, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 251,000 copies in the United States; the feat gave Ne-Yo his second number-one album. The first single from the platinum-selling album was the title track, which peaked at the number-two spot. Despite the success of “Because of You”, later singles released charted lower and were unable to reach the Top 20. The album has been certified platinum by RIAA for a shipment of over one million units. In December 2007, Ne-Yo and the Goo Goo Dolls performed at a fund-raising concert for the then presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama.

Ne-Yo’s third album, Year of the Gentleman, was released internationally on August 5, 2008. Speaking to noted UK R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning Blues & Soul, Ne-Yo explained the thinking behind its title: “To me ‘Year Of The Gentleman’ is all about a persona, a swag and a charm. I made an assessment of the music business. And, in my personal opinion, the essence of the gentleman is absent right now. Everybody kinda looks the same, everybody’s kinda doing the same thing, everybody’s kinda rude and full of themselves. Whereas a gentleman is calm, courteous, kind, charming… So that title basically represents me trying to lead by example, and showing these cats what it is to be a gentleman in this business still.”

The album sold 250,000 copies in its first week in the United States, debuting on the Billboard 200 at number two. Reviews for the album were positive: in one of which, Caryn Ganz of Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Year of the Gentleman is “actually a superb concept album about what a great boyfriend he [Ne-Yo] can be”.

The first two singles, “Closer” and “Miss Independent”, have peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was nominated for Best Contemporary R&B Album and Album of the Year at the 2009 Grammy Awards, “Closer” for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, and “Miss Independent” for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.Year of the Gentleman has been certified platinum by RIAA for a shipment of more than one million copies.The third single, “Mad”, peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.

On September 2, 2009, Ne-Yo released greatest hits album Ne-Yo: The Collection in Japan. The album was also released with a limited edition CD+DVD edition complete with the music videos of singles. It debuted at number four on Japan Oricon weekly albums chart, selling 55,625 copies in the first week.

Ne-Yo will release his fourth studio album, Libra Scale, on 27th October 2010 in Japan. The first single, “Beautiful Monster”, premiered on May 25, 2010 and was released as a digital download on June 8, 2010 and reached number 1 on UK singles chart. Speaking of Libra Scale, Ne-Yo stated: “The album is based upon this short story which basically follows these three characters who are forced to choose between money-power-and-fame versus love. Which in turn is why I’ve called it ‘Libra Scale’. You know, its whole concept is based on that question of morality – that, if you weight it all out on a libra scale, which one of those two options would you choose?”

Eminem Biography:

Eminem had been born Marshall Bruce Eminem III on October 17, 1972 in Saint Joseph, Missouri, the one and only kid of Deborah Nelson Mathers-Briggs and Marshall Bruce Eminem, Jr. Eminem is of Scottish,English, German, Swiss, as well as Polish ancestry. His dad deserted the household when Eminem had been eighteen months old, and eminem had been brought up solely by his mom in poverty. By the age of twelve, Eminem along with his mom had relocated between numerous towns and cities in Missouri (including Saint Joseph, Savannah, and Kansas City) before they settled in Warren, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.

Right after obtaining a copy of the Beastie Boys record Licensed to Ill as a teenager, Eminem became fascinated in hip hop. Eminem at age 14 under the pseudonym “M&M” and then becoming a member of the group called “Bassmint Productions” and then launched their very own very first EP, Steppin’ Onto The Scene. They will later changed their name to “Soul Intent” and about 1995 they launched their first single called “Fuckin’ Backstabber” under the record label Mashin’ Duck Records. Even though Eminem had been enrolled at Lincoln High School in Warren, Eminem often participated in freestyle battles at the now defunct Osborn High School on Detroit’s east side. Despite a well documented challenge succeeding in a predominantly African American industry, Eminem gained the acceptance of underground hip hop followers. Right after repeating the ninth grade twice due to truancy and near failing grades, Eminem dropped out of high school at age seventeen. In 1991, Mathers’ maternal uncle, Ronald “Ronnie” Nelson, committed suicide via shotgun wound to the head. Eminem had been very close to his uncle, and had been devastated at his death; today, eminem sports a tattoo reading “Ronnie R.I.P.” on his upper left arm.

Along with the release of The Slim Shady EP, Eminem had been accused of imitating the style and topic matter of underground rap artist Cage. Jimmy Iovine, CEO of Interscope Records, asked for a demo tape of Eminem’s following Eminem placed 2nd at the 1997 Rap Olympics. Lyrics of Eminem had also won Wake Up Show’s Freestyle Performer Of The Year prize helping him obtain a record deal. Lovine played the recording for record producer Dr. Dre, founder of Aftermath Entertainment. The two started recording tracks for Eminem’s new upcoming major-label debut The Slim Shady LP, and Eminem prepared a guest performance on the record Devil Without a Cause by Kid Rock. Hip-hop journal The Source featured Eminem in its “Unsigned Hype” column in March 1998. According to Billboard Magazine, at this particular point in his life Eminem had “realized his musical ambitions were the only way to escape his unhappy life”. Right after being signed to Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope Records in 1998, Eminem launched his first major studio record, The Slim Shady LP, greatly based on the production by Dr. Dre, one year later in 1999. Billboard praised the record as “light years ahead of the material eminem had been writing beforehand”. It went on to be one of the most popular cds of 1999, going triple platinum by the end of the year. Along with the album’s popularity came controversy surrounding many of the album’s lyrics. In “’97 Bonnie and Clyde”, Eminem describes a trip along with his infant daughter, disposing of his wife’s body. Another song, “Guilty Conscience”, ends along with his encouraging a man to murder his wife and her lover. “Guilty Conscience” marked the beginning of the friendship and musical bond that Dr. Dre and Eminem would share. The two label-mates would later collaborate on a line of hit songs, including “Forgot About Dre” and “What’s the Difference” from Dr. Dre’s record 2001, “Bitch Please II” from The Marshall Eminem LP, “Say What You Say” from The Eminem Show, “Encore/Curtains Down” from Encore and “Old Time’s Sake” and “Crack a Bottle” from Relapse. Dr. Dre would go on to make at least one guest appearance on all of Eminem’s studio cds under the label Aftermath. The record has now been certified 4 times platinum by the RIAA.

The Marshall Mathers LP had been launched in May 2000. It went on to sell 1.76 million copies in its first week, busting the records set by Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle as the fastest-selling hip hop record and Britney Spears’ …Baby One More Time as the fastest selling solo record in Usa history. Eminem’s new single launched from the record, “The Real Slim Shady”, had been a achievement and created some conflict by insulting celebrities and making dubious statements about them; Eminem’s insane lyrics states, among other things, that Christina Aguilera performed oral sex on Fred Durst and Carson Daly. In his 2nd single, “The Way I Am”, Eminem reveals to his fans the difficulties from his record company to top “My Name Is” and sell more records. Even though Eminem had parodied shock rocker Marilyn Manson in the video “My Name Is”, the artists are apparently on good terms. Eminem and Marilyn Manson performed a remix of the song “The Way I Am” together in concert. In the 3rd single, “Stan” (which samples Dido’s “Thank You”), Eminem attempts to deal along with his new-found fame, taking on the persona of a deranged fan who kills himself and his pregnant girlfriend, mirroring “’97 Bonnie & Clyde” on The Slim Shady LP. In the music video of “Stan”, Eminem had been shown writing along with his left hand, ending the fan discussion over his dominant hand. Q magazine named “Stan” the 3rd most significant rap song of all time, and the song came tenth in a very similar survey conducted by Top The song has since become highly commended and had been ranked 290th in Rolling Stone magazine’s “500 Finest Songs of All Time” list. In July 2000, Eminem became the first white person to be featured on the cover of The Source magazine. This record has been certified 9x platinum by the RIAA. Eminem performed along with Elton John at the 43rd Grammy Awards ceremony in 2001 the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), an organization that perceived Eminem’s lyrics to be homophobic, condemned the openly gay John’s decision to perform along with Eminem. Entertainment Weekly put it on its end of the decade, “best-of” list, saying, “It had been the hug heard ’round the world. Eminem, under fire for homophobic lyrics, shared the stage along with a gay icon for a performance of “Stan” that would certainly have been unforgettable in any context. On February 21, the day of the ceremony, GLAAD held a demonstration outside the Staples Center, the venue where the Grammy ceremony had been held. Music tours that Eminem participated in for 2001 included the Up In Smoke Tour along with rappers Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, and Ice Cube and Family Values Tour along with the band Limp Bizkit.

Eminem’s 3rd major record, The Eminem Show, had been launched in summer 2002 and proved to be another hit for the rapper reaching number one on the charts and selling well over 1 million copies in its first week of release. It featured the single “Without Me”, in which eminem makes derogatory comments about boy bands, Limp Bizkit, Moby, and Lynne Cheney, among others. The Eminem Show has been certified 8x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The record reflected on the impact of his rise to fame, his relationship along with his wife and daughter, and his status in the hip-hop community. Eminem also addresses the charges Eminem faced over assaulting a bouncer Eminem saw kissing his wife in 2000. Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic felt that while there had been clear anger present on several tracks, this record had been considerably less inflammatory than The Marshall Eminem LP. However, L. Brent Bozell III, who previously criticized The Marshall Eminem LP for perceived misogynistic lyrics in the record, noted The Eminem Show for its extensive use of obscene language, giving Eminem the nickname “Eminef” for the bowdlerization of motherfucker, an obscenity prevalent in the record.

The Media Research Center claims that on December 8, 2003, the Usa Secret Service admitted it had been “looking into” allegations that Eminem had threatened the President of the Usa. The lyrics in question: “Fuck money/I don’t rap for dead presidents/I’d rather see the president dead/It’s never been said, but I set precedents …” The song in question, “We As Americans”, wound up on a bonus CD accompanying the record.In 2004, Eminem launched his fourth major record, Encore. The record had been another chart-topper, as it had been driven by the single “Just Lose It”, notable for being disrespectful towards Michael Jackson. On October 12, 2004, a week after the release of “Just Lose It”, Eminem’s first single off Encore, Michael Jackson called into the Los Angeles-based Steve Harvey radio show to report his displeasure along with the video, which parodies Jackson’s child molestation trial, plastic surgery, and an incident in which Jackson’s hair caught on fire while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984. The lyrics to “Just Lose It” refer to Jackson’s legal troubles, however Eminem does state in his song “… and that’s not a stab at Michael/That’s just a metaphor/I’m just psycho….” All of Jackson’s supporters and friends spoke out about the video, including Stevie Wonder, who called the video “kicking a man while he’s down” and “bullshit”, and Steve Harvey, who declared, “Eminem has lost his ghetto pass. We want the pass back.” In the video, Eminem parodied Pee Wee Herman, MC Hammer, and “Blond Ambition”-era Madonna.Regarding Jackson’s demonstration, “Weird Al” Yankovic, who parodied the lyrics on Eminem’s song “Lose Yourself” on a track titled “Couch Potato” on his 2003 record Poodle Hat, told the Chicago Sun-Times, “Last year, Eminem forced me to halt production on the video for my “Lose Yourself” parody because eminem somehow thought that it would be harmful to his image or career. So the irony of this situation along with Michael is not lost on me.” Black Entertainment Television had been the first channel to stop airing the video. MTV, however, announced it would continue airing the video. The Source, through its CEO Raymond “Benzino” Scott, wanted not only the video to be pulled, but the song off the record, and a public apology to Jackson from Eminem. In 2007 Jackson and Sony bought Famous Music LLC from Viacom. This deal gave him the rights to songs by Eminem, Shakira and Beck, among others. Despite the comedic theme of the lead single, Encore had its fair share of serious subject matter, including the anti-war track “Mosh”. On October 25, 2004, a week before the 2004 US Presidential election, Eminem launched the video for “Mosh” on the Internet. The song featured a very strong anti-Bush message, along with lyrics such as “fuck Bush” and “this weapon of mass destruction that we call our president”. The video features Eminem gathering up an army of people, including rapper Lloyd Banks, presented as victims of the Bush administration and leading them to the White House. However, once the army breaks in, it is revealed that they are there to simply register to vote, and the video ends along with the words “VOTE Tuesday November 2” on the screen. After Bush had been re-elected, the video’s ending had been changed to Eminem and the protesters invading while Bush had been giving a speech.

In 2005, some industry insiders speculated that Eminem had been considering ending his rapping career after six years and several multi-platinum cds. Speculation began in early 2005 about a double-disc record to be launched late that year, rumored to be titled The Funeral. The record later manifested itself as a greatest hits record under the name Curtain Call: The Hits in December. In July 2005, the Detroit Free Press broke news of a potential final bow for Eminem as a solo performer, quoting members of his inside circle who said that eminem will begin to fully embrace the role of producer and label executive. On the same day of the release of the compilation record, Eminem denied that eminem had been retiring on Detroit-based WKQI’s “Mojo in the Morning” radio show, but implied that eminem would at least be taking a break as an artist, saying “I’m at a point in my life right now where I feel like I don’t know where my career is going … This is the reason that we called it ‘Curtain Call’, because this could be the final thing. We don’t know.”In 2005, Eminem had been a subject of Bernard Goldberg’s book, 100 People Who Are Screwing Up America; eminem ranked No. 58. Goldberg cited a 2001 column by Bob Herbert of The New York Times claiming, “In Eminem’s world, all women are whores and Eminem is eager to rape and murder them.” Goldberg cited Eminem’s song “No One’s Iller” from The Slim Shady EP as an example of misogyny in his music. In summer 2005, Eminem embarked on his first US concert run in three years, the Anger Management 3 Tour, featuring 50 Cent, G-Unit, Lil’ Jon, D12, Obie Trice, The Alchemist, and others. In August 2005, Eminem canceled the European leg of the tour and subsequently announced that Eminem had entered drug rehabilitation for treatment for a “dependency on sleep medication”.Curtain Call: The Hits had been launched on December 6, 2005, under Aftermath Entertainment. In its first week it sold nearly 441,000 copies in the US and had been Eminem’s fourth straight No. 1 record on the Billboard Hot 200. The record has been certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA.

In September 2007, Eminem called into New York radio station Hot 97 during an interview along with 50 Cent and said Eminem had been “in limbo” and “debating” about when and if Eminem would release another record. Eminem said, “I’m always working I’m always in the studio. It feels good right now, the energy of the label. For a while, I didn’t want to go back to the studio … I went through some personal things. I’m coming out of those personal things and it feels good.”

Eminem made an appearance on his Sirius channel Shade 45 in September 2008 in which Eminem said, “Right now I’m kinda just concentrating on my own stuff, for right now and just banging out tracks and producing a lot of stuff. You know, the more I keep producing the better it seems like I get ’cause I just start knowing stuff.”[69] It had been around this time that Interscope finally confirmed the existence of a new Eminem record,along with Spring 2009 later being stated as the period span in which the record is due.In December 2008, Eminem gave more details on the record, which Eminem recently reported had been being titled Relapse. Eminem said, “Me and Dre are back in the lab like the old days, man. Dre will end up producing the majority of the tracks on ‘Relapse’. We are up to our old mischievous ways … let’s just leave it at that.”

On March 5, 2009, Eminem reported in a press release that Eminem would be releasing two new cds that year. Eminem Relapse, the first album, had been launched on May 19, while “We Made You”, the first official single and its music video, were launched on April 7. While Relapse didn’t manage to sell as well as Eminem’s previous efforts, it had been still a commercial success that received some critical acclaim, while also re-establishing his presence in the hip hop world. Relapse had been named one of the top cds of 2009. Relapse has sold more than five million copies worldwide. During the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, Sacha Baron Cohen descended upon the audience wearing an angel’s costume and landed on top of Eminem along with his buttocks facing towards Eminem’s face, resulting in Eminem storming out of the awards ceremony in disgust. Three days later, Eminem stated it had been a staged act that they had planned together. On October 30, Eminem performed at the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans as a headliner in his first full performance in 2009. The performance included several songs from Relapse, as well as many of Eminem’s older hits and an appearance by D12. On November 19, Eminem announced on his website that Relapse: Refill would be launched on December 21. The record had been a re-release of the Relapse record along with seven bonus tracks, including “Forever” and “Taking My Ball”. In a statement Eminem described the forthcoming CD.“I want to deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned … Hopefully these tracks on The Refill will tide the fans over until we put out Relapse 2 next year … I got back in along with Dre and then a few more producers, including Just Blaze, and went in a completely different direction which made me start from scratch. The new tracks started to sound very different than the tracks I originally intended to be on Relapse 2, but I still want the other stuff to be heard. ”

On April 13, 2010, Eminem tweeted, “There is no Relapse 2”, to his followers. When Eminem tweeted this, people started to believe that Eminem had been not releasing an record at all, but it simply meant that the record title would be changed to Recovery. Eminem confirmed his new album release date will be in 2010 this by tweeting the album name, “RECOVERY”, along with a link to his website. Eminem said, “I had originally planned for Relapse 2 to come out last year. But as I kept recording and working along with new producers, the idea of a sequel to Relapse started to make less and less sense to me, and I wanted to make a completely new record. The music on Recovery came out very different from Relapse, and I think it deserves its own title.” His seventh studio record, Recovery, had been launched on June 21. In the US, Recovery sold 741,000 in its first week to land atop the Billboard 200. Eminem’s lyrics on Not Afraid launched the debuted single to number one on the Billboard Hot 100, followed by a second single, “Love the Way You Lie,” which debuted at number 2 and then rose. Despite some criticism towards its consistency, Recovery received positive reviews from most music critics.

The event had been dubbed The Home & Home Tour. The first two concerts rapidly sold out, prompting the scheduling of an additional show at each venue.Eminem opened the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards on September 12, 2010, by performing “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie”, along with Rihanna performing the chorus. Eminem and Rihanna collaborated once again to make “Love the Way You Lie, Part II”, the sequel to their hit single “Love the Way You Lie”. Rihanna is the lead singer, as opposed to Eminem being the main singer in the original “Love the Way You Lie”. The song is said to be from the female perspective.
