Have you ever been listening to your favorite station or tune in to a random station on a drive and hear a song that you really like but have no idea who could have possibly sung it? Or maybe you can catch a few of the lyrics but you can't seem to find it in a search online?
Well one of my favorite places to go to when this happens is yes.com As long as you know the station name or can sift through the list, yes.com will give you almost real time updated information concerning what's being played on your local station.
As many boy bands come and go, I was struck by the desire to discuss the group Pretty Ricky. I thought I would leave you with some facts with which to draw your own conclusion about Pretty Ricky and some pictures to help you create the visual a little more clearly.
*although they are categorized as R&B, only one sings, the other three rap
*the outfits are reminiscent of days past, in the past for a good reason
*tracks discuss grinding on a girls body, having phone sex, and my personal favorite, peer pressuring a girl into having sex cause "they're ready and they know you want and need it"
This just might be the band that is SO bad that they're damned good and you can't help but sing when they're song comes on and in fact you can't look away. Shh! If you listen closely you can hear the panties of a 13 year old girl drop.
Soak in the proverbial car wreck that is Pretty Ricky
p.s. No one in the group is named Ricky
I went to my first concert which was to see Kanye West perform in NYC @ MSG (Madison Square Garden). My initial thoughts were that the entire concert would be done with the lights off and he would be glowing but essentially it was an outer space themed performance with acting interludes to lead into his hits and tracks of his latest album. Only one track was missing which I really wanted to hear which was the "New Workout Plan" but Kanye really pulled out all the energy and gave 110%.
Will.I.Am was in the crowd along with Andre 3000 and Q-Tip and performances were made by Consequence, N.E.R.D, Lupe Fiasco & a new group called He Say She Say. The concert ended with a surprise appearance from Jay Z and promises that a Blueprint 3 album will be coming out in the near future with tracks produced by "Kanye to the" himself. This concert was a great experience and was worth the price of floor tickets. It lasted from 730 until 12 AM and was worth the wait.
