Everyone has been wondering last year why The Neptunes didn’t make it on Mary J. Blige’s album ‘My Life II … The Journey Continues (Act I)’ since Pharrell talked so much about how wonderful the music is that they did together, well Mary is preparing to release her Part II of the album and she just leaked a new tune which is produced by Pharrell, JD & Bryan-Michael Cox. Mary J. Blige, has remade the Sly & The Family Stone hit “Everyday People,” which reached No. 1 on the Billboard songs chart way back in 1968.
Her version sounds like a cross between the ’60s classic and the 1990s remake by Arrested Development, but has all-new lyrics that exemplify the positive messages of self-motivation and personal empowerment that Mary’s been known for in recent years. This tune will probably appear on her next album, ‘The Journey Continues (Act II)’ , which could come our way in late 2012 or early 2013. You can check out below the new version as well as the old version.

The idea was to select an artist who can be a successful DIVA in Japan, Asia, and the world. The selected artist will debut from (B)APE SOUNDS®. Her debut song was an R&B love song titled “Back Of My Mind,” followed by ‘Hold Back’ both produced by The Neptunes and was released through iTunes in 23 countries. Born in Okinawa, Manami has been living in Tokyo since the age of 4. She attended dance classes but decided to take up voice training at 19, aiming to become a professional singer. There is no information that there will be new Neptunes Tracks on her debut, nonetheless i’m looking forward to her album. You can check out the Japanese Versions (My Favourites) of her Neptunes Tracks below.

Miley Cyrus has revealed that she has spent the last few months in the studio working on her new album. The singer told Billboard that she had got into a “groove” where she just wanted to spend her days making music. “I’ve been writing and working on my record,” she confirmed. “It’s a good life to live… I can see how people [like Lil Wayne] just make mixtapes constantly, because you get into like that groove where you’re just like ‘I don’t want to get out of my pyjamas today, but I want to go to work. I want to make sick music’,” she explained. “So you just go to the studio, hang out, chill and write. It’s so rewarding waiting for those mixes,” she continued. “You sit by your phone until everyone’s done mastering and stuff. It’s such a fun process.”
Cyrus revealed that the recording process for her forthcoming LP has been a little different to her usual routine. “I’ve been in so many sessions, just bunkering down, working really hard and perfecting everything,” she said. “I’ve never really had time to do that – to like have my record kind of done, and just sit there and make it until it’s perfect – so it’s been really, really fun “This whole year, that’s all I’ve really kind of dedicated life to,” she added. “Wherever I’ve been, I’ve found a studio home.” The former Hannah Montana star said that she hopes to have a single out “by the end of this year”, but admitted that she is currently meeting with labels and “just enjoying making the kind of record [she wants] to make”. “[I like] knowing that I know what I want to do and who I want to be really strongly before anyone else comes into the equation,” she explained.
“I just want to make sure it’s exactly what I want first.” When asked about the feel of the album, she said: “It’s all really different. I’ve been working with some really great producers – last week I was with [production duo] Da Internz… it’s been really, really good to work with them.” Cyrus also revealed that she had been into the studio with Pharrell Williams. “[He’s] like the dopest person on the planet,” she said. “He really is just so insane and he’s become just like family. I’ve never met someone where it’s been kind of like deja vu, you feel like you’ve known them before, [but] that’s exactly how our first session was. “I had gone to new labels, new management… all these big changes,” she continued. “To find him and something that felt really familiar was really, really good.” Cyrus recently took to Twitter to tell fans she wanted more “passion” in her life. She denied the tweets were in reference to her relationship with fiancé Liam Hemsworth, who she has been with since 2009.

Here is another upcoming projects of Pharrell’s upcoming projetcs from this year, this time around, he performed one of the upcoming T.I. tunes from his eight studio album ‘Trouble Man’ at At Gotha Club in Cannes last month, check it out below, the drums are pretty sick, thanks to Creatrice.
By Brad Wete. The sexy singer talks about awkward pickup attempts, turn-offs, and what it means to “Sexify.” This feature appears in Complex’s October/November 2012 issue. On “Sexify,” Leah LaBelle’s steamy first single, the Seattle native swears she has a “bunch of ways to turn him on.” Clearly she does. Her voice and look impressed hit-makers Pharrell Williams and Jermaine Dupri so much that they’re going halves producing the 26-year-old R&B singer’s Epic Records debut. But the real question is: What turns her on?
When you say you’ll “sexify” a guy, what does that mean?
I know what it is but I can’t tell you. You can’t give away all your secrets—that’s a part of being sexy, of getting a man home.
What makes you feel sexy?
Having your nails and hair done can make you walk around saying, “I look good today.” But challenging your mind can also make you feel good. Carrying yourself with poise and joy and peace within—that’s sexy.
What do you find sexy in a guy?
Confidence is a huge turn-on, but I like a man who’s also kind and gentle. It’s sexy when a guy listens and can have a conversation or read a book—something different than just going out to the club.
