There are SO many uber-talented artists whose music transcends the labels or boundaries set upon them.
My sentiment isn't personal. Most of the songs I wrote for others or performed were, in fact, R&B songs. I do step outside once in a while.
Fact is, only black artists get held back by labels: "Urban" "Hip-Hop" & "R&B," no matter how versatile or wide the span of the music is.
This is not a new phenomenon. So don't be so quick to pinpoint a modern example. You'd be missing the WHOLE picture on the subject.
...it's only called "R&B" when the artist is black. that's cute!
: Everyone's doing r&b music but no one wants to call it r&b. «--clocked.
When the Heat play, Aljamaal turns into a bath salt zombie. He just picked the couch up with me on it.
I admit, I came to AJ's room to watch Game 6 just because he is the most entertaining sports nut I've ever seen!!! One day I'll record this.
Presidential. DC chillin.

HAPPY BURFDAY, Aljamaal!!! So thankful for your expertise & friendship. Couldn't have done "this life" w/out you! Thanks for holding me down all these years!!
That awesome moment you hop off a red-eye expecting to head straight into taping then they cancel the 1st half of your day so you get a nap!

Showing baby sis, @flyKYE_12
, some BURFDAY LOVE!!! You rock, Kye! Following plans A-Z to make your dreams happen! So proud! Love you! Enjoy!
I don't brag. My ONLY motive was to inspire you!!! Stop living 4 right now! Save ur HARD-EARNED money to reach that point sooner than later!
Work hard, but work smart too! Keep your eyes on your FUTURE! Earn the FREEDOM to work when & how YOU want, not slave for your boss forever!
Twitter can be so trivial--it's too fucking annoying!! You really get to see how many ways one sentence can interpreted...or misinterpreted.
My tweet was about ONE reason why we all WORK HARD...not THE purpose of LIFE. Those who aren't always fishing for drama understood that.
Why didn't she post my entire direct message to her tho? Taking things out of context to create bias is for beginners...and not credible.
just stupid. #nomorebottles
My hand looks like a crab-claw in that pic.

I mean of course there are many goals in life. But ULTIMATELY, that's what we all strive for, right? FREEDOM! Even if we do love our job :)
It's nice when your hard work affords you the luxury of doing whatever you want, whenever you want. That's the goal, right?
: Peace is quiet certainty that God is in control.
I was simply showing appreciation 4 fans who stayed down during a hiatus that I never addressed. M'kay? Besides that... *runs to gym*
Thought addressing that would help CLEAR some confusion but it created more o_O And you wonder why I choose to be quiet/private these days!
I'm not TAKING a leave of absence, I TOOK a leave of absence. Decided to finally let my fans know that I did indeed step away for a while...
I get how you could THINK you found clues to that conclusion you conjured...but I'm NOT pregnant. Those "clues" are unrelated & exaggerated.
Baby-hair is making a COMEBACK, you hear me? Toothbrushes out, girls!! Ratchet is on the rise! Teehee! Nahhh like, for real.
gloomy day at CHAMPS-ÉLYSÉES #Paris
Take a moment to think about the things you find yourself putting before God. Is it money? Your relationship? Success? Pleasure? Your image?
: ALOT of confusion ppl have is because they don't read. They walk away with what they FEEL was said instead of what was said
That elephant got too big to keep ignoring. But wait, it's still there. Just smaller now.
you're well worth the wait!!! Real fans are down for you 4ever! «--that's real. thank you!
