Now that we’ve covered a few of 2009's most anticipated comeback albums, especially those from T-Boz, Kelly Price and Silk, it’s time for part 2 of ‘Like I Never Left’.

Keeping in mind that we’ve got some ways to go, let’s dig right into eight more anticipated releases including the return of entertainment diva Jennifer Lopez and the long-awaited return of Maxwell ! (Click here for Part 1 if you missed it)

“On The 6,” “This Is Me... Then,” “Rebirth,” and “Brave” are all albums that have been released since Jennifer Lopez hit the scene in 1999 so it seems fitting, 10 years later, that she release a Greatest Hits album right ?

According to Jennifer Lopez and Bryan Michael Cox, who spoke with Singersroom in November, Jennifer Lopez is doing just that.

Instead of releasing a normal Greatest Hits project, the former “If You Had My Love” singer is coming strong with a few new singles including a Bry…

Whitney Houston - Houston Bans Sad Songs

Whitney Houston is so happy, she has refused to record any sad songs for her comeback album, according to collaborator NE-YO. The singer hasn't released a record since her 2003 Christmas offering, One Wish: The Holiday Album. Her last original studio album was Just Whitney, released the same year (03).

The vocal superstar is currently working on an LP to relaunch her career, which is expected to hit record stores later this year (09).
And R&B star Ne-Yo, who has been helping the star put her new album together, insists it won't feature any downbeat ballads - because of the improvement in Houston's personal life.

He says, "People are expecting something fantastic and I think they are going to get it. Whitney doesn't want any sad songs on this record. She isn't going for tear jerkers. She's happy raising her children and wants her music to reflect that. It's already sounding great."

Houston endured a messy public divor…

Just like Whitney Houston’s 2008 announcement/single “I want you to love me like I never left,” featuring Akon, 2009 is set to be a year full of new releases from some of R&B and Pop’s adored recording stars. Some have been on hiatus for years, others have been busy with films and other projects. No matter what their reasons are, they’ve picked 2009 to make a comeback.

In celebration of the upcoming releases Singersroom has compiled a list of over 19 forthcoming releases, some you’ve heard a few things about and others that may surprise you... whether they're welcome surprises or not, is up to you to decide.

Stay clicked to Singersroom through Monday as we dive through the three part series ‘Like I Never Left’.

First up on our list is R&B singer/songwriter/actor Tank. Known for bringing R&B hits like “Maybe I Deserve,” “One Man,” and “I Should Have Cheated” to the world both f…

友情,人人都需要友情.....

90年代初期,Whitney Houston還沒嗑藥過頭、也就是Mariah Carey胸部還是正常人大小的那個年代,行動電話尚未普及,人與人之間聯絡的方式,除了室內電話外,最夯的就是B.B.Call了。

好加在,惠媽已經脫離"毒海"....

咪咪離婚後,衣服越穿越少....XD

在那個Call來Call去,Call成愁的美好年代裡,感謝老天爺~~
讓我們聽見地表上最美的聲音-Whitney Houston....
以及讓我們見識到啥叫海豚音-Mariah Carey....

人際關係這門課,應該是每個人活到老就要學到老的課題。

任何時刻,除了家人的陪伴外。
每個人都需要友情的支持......
所以囉~~

Lyrics:
And I never thought I'd feel this way
And as far as I'm concerned
I'm glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
The way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smilin', keep shinin'
Knowin' you can always count on me, …

Super Bowl Entertainment: Bigger By The Year

It began simply with marching bands. Now, it's not Super Bowl entertainment unless the performer has a couple of Grammy Awards. Productions grow bigger each year, and have not been without a bit of controversy. But there also have been some unbelievable and unforgettable performances. On Sunday, Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson will sing the National Anthem and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will perform at halftime of Super Bowl XLIII. Does it get any bigger than The Boss?

關於『Do You Think Whitney Houston Can Make a Comeback?』投票調查.

不知道大家還記不記得,Davin我先前做了一個投票調查?!
題目是:Do You Think Whitney Houston Can Make a Comeback?

在96位投票的網友中,投『Yes,She has natural talent!』的有82票。

『No,She's burnt out!』的有14票。

在新人輩出的這個年代,惠媽雖已經不是銷量保證。但她的歌聲,對某些人而言(至少對我來說)是無法被取代的....

雖然這騙子1號和2號,從N百年前,就說全新錄音室專輯即將發行,但年年都讓歌迷的希望落空。沒有新的音樂作品,再加上負面新聞不斷,惠妮迷的心臟如果不是很有力,大概早就回蘇州賣鴨蛋了....XD

這一陣子不斷有消息說惠媽會在2009年的第一季結束前發專輯,另外一說則是說在2009.3發行,但這消息旋即都被唱片公司否認,而且官方一再用惠妮還在錄音中,新專輯發行日期未定的標準制式答案來搪塞。

Whitney Houston.com的聲明稿:
Please note that Arista Records has not announced an official release date for the new Whitney Houston album and the information circulating on the internet and in press is erroneous. Whitney is in the studio recording and we will certainly let you know when there is news on a release date to report. Stay tuned and thanks for your support.

至於惠媽今年到底會不會發專輯,我想連老天爺也沒答案...XD
再過幾天Clive pre-Grammy party就要舉行....
希望屆時,Clive老爹和惠媽,會有新的說法來告知日漸減少的惠妮迷囉....

以上是目前所流出來的最新照片,感謝老外網友,去除原圖的浮水印.....

歲月在惠媽身上,留下了痕跡(當然那當初嗑藥及菸抽很大的習慣,也讓這女人的皮膚變化到一定程度..XD)但整體而言,我還是很高興看到健康的惠媽,那嗑藥過頭的鬼樣,希望永遠不會再出現。

惠媽所屬唱片公司表示,很感謝歌迷的支持。
目前惠妮仍持續在錄音中,並未有任何確切預定發片的時間。
目前在網路上流傳2009.3發片的消息,並不正確。
一但有相關惠妮新專輯發行的相關消息,唱片公司會再行公佈!

According to Clive Davis, "The process has begun".

"We've always said we were looking towards the end of the first quarter of (2009). I do feel good about the material we have and what's been going on."

Ne-Yo, John Legend, Akon, R. Kelly and Will. I. Am have all been linked to the new album.

Whitney Houston's as-yet-untitled album is now due for release in March !
