Def Jam's latest signee Mila J aka Japollonia started in the music business by being booked for the little girl role in Prince’s “Diamonds and Pearls” music video. After a few attempts in girl groups and solo deals, she is finally grounded and ready to release a full studio album. This week, Mila J shipped out the single “Smoke, Drink, Break Up," which reached No. 1 on Singersroom’s Top 10 Most Popular R&B Songs of the Week.
The production on Mila J’s new track is reminiscent of Timbaland’s creative crafting for Aaliyah. The Los Angeles native's aggressive melody raise the reliability of a yo-yoing relationship that only finds peace when smoking, drinking or breaking up. More music is expected to surface from her this year.
One notch lower on the Top 10 Most Popular R&B Songs of the Week is Algebra Blessett’s “Nobody But You.” She teaches a quick lesson learned is not to come between her and her lover. Algebra maintains a sweet tone while being assertive with lyrics that point to her immense connection. The single is featured on the recently released album, 'Recovery.'
Eric Bellinger has been working overtime as the February 11th, 2014 retail release date of ‘The Rebirth’ moves closer. A downpour of three of his records including “My Queen,” “Road Trip” and “Same Ol” earned spots on the Most Popular R&B Songs of the Week, “My Queen” was the highest at No. 3.
