Chart Stalker 7/6/11: At the Halfway Point

First things first: this week’s chart brings good news and bad news. First-the good news. Beyonce acquits herself well with a chart-topping entry for 4. The R&B songstress’s latest effort starts at #1 on the pop and R&B album charts with 310,000 units. While it’s a little lower than the numbers that have greeted past efforts, if anyone considers a total north of 300,000 copies to be a failure or a disappointment, they’re seriously delusional. Bey is the biggest of […]

Back for Good? El DeBarge’s “Second Chance”

There are many things I could criticize BET for. Quite frankly, the network that created the lane for Black programming on television has been lapped by Centric and TVOne. Even their annual award show tends to be an exercise in general coonery with a handful of moments that makes the ceremony almost worth watching. This year’s show was no different. Thankfully, BET made up for Chris Brown’s crocodile tears by featuring El DeBarge in two separate segments. El has not released an album […]

Chart Chat 7/7/10: Mid-Year Report

Surprising no one, Eminem’s “Recovery” maintains a second week on top of Billboard’s album chart. Perhaps surprising some folks, “Recovery” experiences a less steep second-week decline than usual, moving a still healthy 313,000 units. This vaults it over the million sold mark in only 2 weeks. It is only the fifth album in 2010 to cross the million-sold threshold. Beginning a series of quiet weeks in the music industry, the highest debut is the third effort from R&B singer/songwriter The-Dream. […]

Does El DeBarge Deserve a “Second Chance”?

The best thing about Sunday night’s BET Awards? The return of El DeBarge. Looking typically crisp and clean despite his recent incarceration, the singer/songwriter led the crowd through a medley of the hits made famous by his family group DeBarge-“I Like It”, “All This Love”, “Time Will Reveal” and “Rhythm of the Night”. Not only was he hitting impossible falsetto notes without breaking a sweat, but he turned the auditorium into a party with “Rhythm of the Night”, dancing through […]

Popblerd (Sort of) LiveBlogs the 10th Annual BET Awards

Sometimes it pays to have other plans. The 10th Annual BET Award ceremony is tonight. Now, normally, I live blog these things so I can share in the shocks and horrors along with everyone else. This time, I had to work (yes, on a Sunday night. I know, right?), so watching the show live isn’t an option. Thank God for DVR. Now I can still deliver snark, but I can speed through the show in half the time! The BET […]

Um…How the Hell Does Justin Bieber Get Nominated for a BET Award??

Nothing gets my goat quicker than the announcement of award nominations. It seems like the older I get, the more I realize how much awards are based on political considerations and not based on actual talent or even common sense. To wit-the nominations for the BET Awards were announced this week. Most of the nominations go according to what you’d typically expect for a BET-endorsed award show-Alicia Keys, Jay-Z and Beyonce are among the key nominees-hell, it seems like they’re […]
