ANGIE IS BACK AT IT AGAIN!
There have been plenty of R&B and soul artists that have come and gone over the years, while a few have continued to quality make music consistently. Not only are they making good music, but they have found a way to remain relevant as well. One artist that definitely falls into that category is Angela Laverne Brown a.k.a Angie Stone. I have been a fan of Angie’s since she was dropping vocals with the R&B group Vertical Hold back in the 90s. The most interesting thing about Ms. Stone that most folks don’t know is that she actually used to be an emcee in a rap group called The Sequence back in the 80s. I have never heard any of their joints, so I have no clue whether she was dope or not? Just add her to the list with Erykah Badu and Dwele of soul artists that started out rapping, but ended up as soul singers instead. Remember when Angie shocked the industry a few years back when she dropped the bomb that her, and the missing-in-action-soul-singer D’Angelo had a four-year fling-a-ding, which resulted in a son. I didn’t know that Angie and Michael Archer (D’Angelo) were doing the hippity-dippity back in the mid-90s?? Maybe, if she gave him some of the goodie-goody now, he’d put out a damn album?? That probably wouldn’t work either, but you can’t blame a man for dreaming.

It’s 2007, and Angie Stone is preparing to release her latest project “The Art of Love and War” that drops on October 16, 2007! Rumor has it that Angie has shed a few pounds over the last few months? If I had to base my belief of that information by her antics on the "Celebrity Fit Club" television show awhile back, I am pretty doubtful that she has. Personally, I can care less, because it's only about the music for me anyway. Just like the upcoming releases from Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, I am definitely anticipating the release of this joint as well. I’m diggin’ the first single from the new album entitled Babyfeaturing Betty Wright. What you youngsters know about Betty Wright? Be sure to get you Google on if you don’t know about Betty! The new album looks like it might be pretty good, so make sure you check it out when it drops.

Peep the "Baby" Video:


What up with putting water on the cornflakes?? Now, that's just plain nasty....

LOVE ME SOME ANGIE!!! She is definitely in that category of singers that I will spend my money on one of their albums before I even hear it. But all I'm sayin' is why, why, why is it that Angie is always gettin' dogged by these brothas and singin' about it?
