Tuesday Video: Colby O’Donis “Don’t Turn Back”

Am I biased when I write about Latino singers? No? Ok cool.

Well I was flicking through the channels and landed on MTV3 (Tres). And this video was playing. Couple of things though. Why haven’t I seen this video on regular MTV? Or on BET? Or heard this song on a Rhythmic Station like KTU?

Anyhow, the song is catchy. The beat is cool. And the dude can sing, dance and play guitar.

What else do you need to craft a credible career in Pop Music?

Only thing I can think of when it comes to criticism is probably giving advice to homeboy to Man Up a bit with his clothing style. His stylist was on some bitch assness with the shit he was wearing towards the beginning.

Either way, it’s a slick video.


“Should Be” Single: Usher “Here I Stand”

Usher’s album seemingly came and went.

“Love in this Club” was a radio hit. But as for it being on par with “Yeah”? That was not what was happening. I always liked Usher. His first album was OK. Then “My Way” came out and it catapulted him to success. Then he followed it up with my personal fave “8701”.

While “Confessions” was his biggest seller with 10 Million sold, I wasn’t really feeling that CD. But it was still a good R&B album in an age when old school singing is making way to Ringtone Rap.

And now in the inexplicable age of Lil’ Wayne being a huge seller, Usher was poised to make a return. But after a scandal involving an older baby mom, Usher now being a dad, and Chris Brown all over the place pop locking and dropping it, it seems Usher’s fans have moved on.

Which is a shame since his last album wasn’t bad at all. And it contains one of his most grown up songs to date. The album’s title track “Here I Stand”.


The song is hot. It should be a single released to Lite FM/Adult Contemporary/Adult R&B formats.

Reason To Watch “90210” Remake #1: AnnaLynne McCord

"Eden" joins "90210"


When I heard about the upcomming “90210” remake, it made me feel OLD. Why? Because they were finally remaking something that started when I was a kid.

As crazy as it may be, I saw the original “90210” pilot episode when it premiered on FOX years ago. So am I happy about this remake/revamp/loose sequel/spin off? Initially, no. Especially since I stopped watching once Shannen Doherty left the show and “Kelly Kapowski” replaced her and in the end of her debut episode she was smoking in the window.

But then I heard my favorite evil girl AnnaLynne McCord from “Nip/Tuck” was cast as a part of the ensemble. My interest has picked up. For starters she was the hottest thing about the show last season. And she is one of the hottest girls on TV. Adding her definitely makes me interested in a recycled show that was born out of an attempt to save a fledgling network from folding.

Here is a VERY NSFW clip of the evil “Eden” in action.

Anyone who can pull off saying such crazy things in a convincing way has skills. Think about it, most people unfortunately say these things in real life. But at least she’s on TV getting paid for it 🙂

“90210” Debuts on Tuesday, September 2nd at 8PM.
