Rico is Suave for the Lord!

ricosuave

This famous saying “the industry is small” plays a big role not only in the connections you make, it also plays a serious part with the role you play. This quote came to mind when I heard this old song from this famous Latino rapper, Gerardo Mejia aka Mr. Rico Suave.

Remember when this Ecuadorian rapper released his first bilingual single ‘Rico Suave’? It became a hit single in through out the U.S. I believe fans fell in love with his physique over his lyrics. I don’t think til this day anyone even knows the words besides the words in the title. Gerardo’s appearance in the 90’s was almost considered to be too much for TV. With a frontal view of his oiled-up toned abs, and a back end view his tight pants, and let’s not forget his long wavy hair and accessorized bandana, he left the women with impure thoughts and men not hating for a moment.

We were hearing ‘Rico Suave’ in our sleep til he released his second single, when ‘We want the Funk’ was released with much excitement we tried to love it and for the most part we did. It gained 16th position in Billboards . But after single dropped it was like, ok???

What went wrong? From the beginning we noticed the lyrics weren’t the hottest we pretty much fell in love with his image. Like I said before what artist was on full display like Gerardo if it wasn’t Donnie Walberg or LL? Gerardo was a Latino.

As heartbreaking as it was to Gerardo such a hard hit downfall he knew he had to let it go.

“It was the hardest thing!”

“I took on a second album in English, I do not succeed, I made two albums in Spanish, they didn’t work either. So that’s when I thought, maybe you should go behind-the -scenes.”

I have to agree with that Gerardo. Very smart decision to be behind the scenes. This Latin Fabio became the senior executive of music in Interscope. This was his chance to proove to the world his passion for music was good for something. His hit or miss project to crossover Enrique Iglesias releasing, “Bailamos” made Enrique a pure Latin Heartthrob on an international scale. Goes to show that just because you think you can shine don’t mean your meant to be a star. It also means you have the talent to take a star where they’ve never been before.

Presently Mr. Mejia continues his passion in the world of music with an interesting twist involving his career experience mentoring as a Christian youth pastor. He will be debuting his new reality show on VH1 December 3rd, “Suave Says”. Rico must have a lot to say!

Rico Suave has proven “The sky is the limit!”

It’s the 25th Anniversary of Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation

janetjackson-jpg

‘Contol’, ‘Escapade’, ‘Miss You Much’, and ‘That’s the Way Love Goes‘ are just a few hit singles this iconic performer has released as record breaking hits throughout music history. I’m speaking about thee one and only, Miss Janet Jackson.

As a five-time Grammyaward-winning recording artist and actress, Janet has left an imprint of inspiration for many artists, but most do not know the role her family has played in her success. With help from the late, great Michael Jackson, she released her first album self-titled, Janet Jackson, selling over 250,000 copies. Her following release was just as successful featuring her brothers Michael, Tito, Jackie and Marlon.

You see, Janet may have been the independent, open minded, creative and most definitely the diva sibling in the Jackson family, but the support of her brothers was what made her feel she was untouchable. And it happened!

This pop legend has kept a low profile in the past few years. But with any hidden agenda, icons such as Janet make sure that when she is out, the world clearly takes notice. Who’s to say that she hasn’t been in the corner store, or shopping at your nearest mall? Surely a recent appearance at the ‘Vogue Fashion DubaiExperience Gala‘ on Friday caught the eyes of dozes of paparazzi’s, ready with the one question they all hoped she would answer.

Is this a sign Miss Jackson is returning to the world of music?

It’s been more than 6 years since her last album ‘Discipline‘ and I think I speak for the all the Janet Jackson fans when I say, the world is ready for the return of Janet Jackson. With fans, friends and media around the world celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation‘ through social media, events and tributes, Janet’s heartfelt appearance would be the least she could do to show the millions of fans she’s fierce and ready to return to the stage and give us the performance of a lifetime.

I just want my music and my dance to catch the audience’s attention, and to hold it long enough for them to listen to the lyrics and what we’re saying.”

Enrique Iglesias Sex! Sex! & More Sex!

ridiculously_sexy_music_videos_enrique_iglesias_tonight_i_m_lovin_you_19pfu85-19pfuaf

When you think of Enrique Iglesias what crosses your mind? Hot and Steamy am I right? Well, that’s what crosses my mind. ;) When he’s on stage belting his lyrics with that sexy ‘mirada, Oh My! Oh My! Oh Dear! It makes me think he is dedicating those words to me for that brief moment.

A girl can dream can’t she? lol

Love and Sex are the perfect words to describe this Latin heartthrob. Why not make it the album title? Enrique has released hit after hit. Each one dedicated to his self expression of passion in many different positions.

‘Bialando’ has been rated the #1 in numerous charts and continues to break records. The hottest single of the Album ‘Sex And Love ‘, the second part of ‘ Euphoria’. Enrique’s sizzling recipe to combine in One album several songs with varous degrees of increased sensual passion and the consistency of rhythmic style is the perfect recipe for foreplay and air play.

As hard as it was for be to believe, i was told Enrique was skeptical to release such a sexual album. However, after a few nights of reminiscing of his past romantic singles it took no arm twisting to convince Enrique ‘Love And Sex’ was a history maker and barrier breaker.

‘Bailando’ became one of the 10 most downloaded songs on iTunes.

This phenomenon with over 100 million albums sold, has overcome criticism and questions over his artistic ability to express his form of love for the music and for the warmth and excitement of a partner. I definitely have no criticism. Express Away Enrique!!

Enrique is smart and sexy and in addition to have a great head of hair he has a great head on his shoulders. He prefers not to include alcohol in a night of passion. It causes problems under the covers, apparently liquor doesn’t make him feel in control. WHAT A FREAK!!

More Fun and more romantic when you remember what you did the next morning. lol!

Despite the eye candy he is to so many fans, Enrique states he’s not interested in casual encounters.

He’s made ​​it clear his view on the double standard that is applied between women and men when judging their relationships.

“If a man lies with a lot of women , it is the best , but a girl does the same , its wrong?? Its not fair!

I personally thought he was a womanizer but he appears to be the whole package of hotness, humor and hero to defending women with double standards.

“… I honestly believe it’s difficult for love to survive without sex.” – Amen to that! lol
