 TLC bio

Having sold over 71 million records worldwide, TLC is the best-selling American female R&B group of all time, riding a blend of pop, hip-hop, and urban soul to superstardom during the ’90s.

Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, rapper; Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas managed to appeal equally to pop and R&B audiences, blending catchy hooks and bouncy funk with a playful, confident attitude. TLC was formed in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1991, when Watkins and Lopes decided to split off from another group; and subsequently, they met Thomas, locally based producer Dallas Austin, and singer, songwriter, and producer Pebbles, who became their manager. They quickly scored a record deal with L.A. Reid and in 1992 issued their new jack-styled debut album, “Ooooooohhh…On the TLC Tip”. The video for the sexy, aggressive lead single, “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” established their quirky, colorful fashion sense. They became well known for their chaotic personal lives, which swung a pendulum through winds of arson, rehab, bankruptcy, serious illness, high-profile romances, and countless intra-group altercations.

After their star-making second album, “CrazySexyCool”, TLC fell into disarray, taking over four years to record the follow-up, “Fanmail”. Even so, they returned more popular than ever, and the hits kept coming. Tragedy struck in early 2002, when Lopes was killed in a car accident in Honduras. As all three members of TLC are considered irreplaceable by the other members, and each of them having contributed equally to the group; following Lopes’ death, instead of replacing her, the remaining members chose to carry on as a duo. In 2017, they are set to release their final album as TLC.

VH1 ranked TLC as the greatest female group, placing them at number 12 on the list of 100 Greatest Women in Music. Billboard magazine ranked TLC as one of the greatest musical trios, as well as the seventh most successful act of the 1990s. The group’s accolades include five (5) career Grammy Awards, five (5) MTV Video Music Awards and five (5) Soul Train Music Awards.

Boney M. is a German vocal group created by record producer Frank Farian, after he recorded the dance track ‘Baby Do You Wanna Bump’ in the December of 1974 -which became a hit- and needed performers to support the song as well as front the group for TV performances.

Boney M. released their first album, “Take the Heat off Me”, in 1976, with its title track and ‘Lovin’ or Leavin’ previously recorded in German by another act Gilla and also tracks recorded erstwhile by Marcia Barrett.

Their break came in February 1977 with the song ‘Daddy Cool’ reaching the U.K. Top Ten, followed by ‘Sunny’ -a remake of Bobby Hebb’s. Then later in July, from their album “Love For Sale”, ‘Ma Baker’ peaked at no. 2 in the U.K. with ‘Belfast’ reaching the Top Ten by December.

In 1978, Boney M. released a double A-sided single, ‘Rivers of Babylon/Brown Girl in the Ring’, which instantly became a hit in Europe, as well as reaching No. 1 in several countries; it went ahead to become one of the biggest selling singles of all time in the UK and also their most successful single in the United States, peaking at No. 30 on the U.S. pop singles chart. This success was further cemented by the grossly successful album “Nightflight to Venus”, which saw the birth of more hit singles as ‘Rasputin’ and ‘Painter Man’. The group further released ‘Mary’s Boy Child – Oh My Lord’, which was the 1978 Christmas number one single in the United Kingdom and became another one of their biggest selling singles of all time.

Boney M. graced 1979 with a brand new fiery single, ‘Hooray! Hooray! It’s a Holi-Holiday’, which became another Top 10 hit across Europe. “Oceans of Fantasy”, their fourth album, followed suit producing two hit singles: ‘Gotta Go Home’/’El Lute’ and ‘I’m Born Again’/’Bahama Mama’. The album reached No.1 in the UK and was certified Platinum.

In 1980, Boney M. released a greatest hits album titled “The Magic of Boney M. – 20 Golden Hits”, and swept the No. 1 spot in the UK, though it was their last big-selling album in the UK.

“Boonoonoonoos”, Boney M.’s fifth album was released late 1981 and was fairly successful. The group’s seventh album, “Ten Thousand Light years”, released in 1984, marked another commercial low point peaking at No. 23 in the German album charts.

Ashanti bio

Ashanti bio

Ashanti Shequoiya Douglas (simply known as Ashanti), an American singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, and actress, blasted into the urban music scene in 2002, topping the charts with multiple singles at once. She quickly became a sensation, gracing the covers of magazines and dominating urban radio. Ashanti built her reputation with duets, where she would complement an already popular rapper –> Ja Rule (“Always on Time“, “Mesmerize“), Fat Joe (“What’s Luv?“), the Notorious B.I.G. (“Unfoolish“) <– contrasting the tough-guy male perspective with her own.

It didn’t take the young vocalist long to make a name for herself though: her debut album topped the Billboard album chart just as her debut solo single, “Foolish,” was topping the Hot 100 chart. Ashanti also wrote and sang background on Jennifer Lopez‘s “Ain’t It Funny (Murder Remix)”, which reached number one on Billboard Hot 100 and was also in the top 10 chart at the same time as her other features.

Later that year, she was acclaimed as the “Princess Of Hip-Hop & R&B” by her label and capped off her successful debut by winning eight Billboard awards and two American Music Awards. Ashanti cites Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Prince, Madonna, Tupac Shakur, Mary J. Blige, Ella Fitzgerald, Smokey Robinson, Donna Summer and Blue Magic as her musical influences. She is currently working on her own publishing company titled “Written Entertainment”.

Tupac Shakur bio

Tupac Shakur bio

Tupac Shakur

Hip-hop legend Tupac Shakur was embroiled in a feud between East Coast and West Coast rappers and was murdered in a drive-by shooting in 1996, leaving behind an influential musical legacy at the age of 25.

Who Was Tupac Shakur?

Tupac Shakur was a sensitive, precociously talented yet troubled soul who came to embrace the 1990s gangsta-rap aesthetic and paid the ultimate price — he was gunned down in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, and died six days later. His murder has never been solved. He began his music career as a rebel with a cause — to articulate the travails and injustices endured by many African-Americans, often from a male point of view. His skill in doing so made him a spokesperson not just for his own generation, but for subsequent ones who continue to face the same struggle for equality. In death, he became an icon symbolizing noble struggle, though in life his biggest battle was sometimes with himself. As fate drove him towards the nihilism of gangsta rap, and into the arms of the controversial Death Row Records impresario Suge Knight, the boundaries between Shakur’s art and his life became increasingly blurred — with tragic consequences.

Child of Black Panther Parents

Tupac began life as Lesane Parish Crooks in Harlem, New York, on June 16, 1971. His mother, Alice Faye Williams, was the daugher of a North Carolina maid and a high-school dropout who changed her name to Afeni Shakur after becoming actively involved with the Black Panther Party; she also renamed young Lesane Parish as Tupac Amaru, after an 18th-century Peruvian revolutionary who was killed by the Spanish. She had become pregnant with her son in 1970 while on bail after being charged with conspiring to set off a race war — Afeni was acquitted the following year after successfully defending herself in court, displaying a gift for oration that her son would inherit. Tupac’s father, Billy Garland, was also a Panther but lost contact with Afeni when Tupac was five — the rapper would not see his father again until he was 23. “I thought my father was dead all my life,” he told the writer Kevin Powell during an interview with Vibe magazine in 1996. “I felt I needed a daddy to show me the ropes and I didn’t have one.”

From Drug Dealer to Promising Hip Hop Artist

Afeni gave birth to a daughter, Sekiya, two years after Tupac. It was from Sekiya’s father, another Panther called Mutulu Shakur, that the rapper took his surname — though Mutulu did not stick around either. A single mother of two children, Afeni struggled for money and they moved homes often, sometimes staying in shelters. They moved to Baltimore, and Tupac enrolled at the prestigious Baltimore School for the Arts, at which he felt “the freest I ever felt.” But their neighborhood was riven by crime, so the family moved again, this time to Marin City in California, which turned out to be a “mean little ghetto” according to Robert Sam Anison’s comprehensive posthumous feature on Tupac for Vanity Fair in 1997. It was in Marin City that Afeni succumbed to crack addiction — a drug her son, Tupac, would sell on the same streets as his mother bought her supply.

But Tupac’s love for hip hop would steer him away from a life of crime (for a while at least). At 17, in the spring of 1989, he met an older white woman, Leila Steinberg, in a park, and they struck up a conversation about Winnie Mandela. Steinberg would later recall “a young man with fan-like eyelashes, overflowing charisma, and the most infectious laugh.” By the time they met, Tupac was obsessively writing poetry (“The world moves fast and it would rather pass u by / than 2 stop and c what makes you cry,” is one verse from around that time and would eventually be published in the 2000 book The Rose that Grew from Concrete). He convinced Steinberg, who had no music-industry experience, to become his manager.

From Tupac to 2Pac

Steinberg was eventually able to get Tupac in front of music manager Atron Gregory, who secured a gig for him in 1990 as a roadie and dancer for the hip hop group Digital Underground. He soon stepped up to the mic, making his recording debut in 1991 on Same Song, which soundtracked the Dan Aykroyd comedy Nothing but Trouble. He also appeared on Digital Underground’s album Sons of the P in October that year. The band’s manager, Gregory, took over from Steinberg and landed Tupac a deal with Interscope Records — and a month after Sons of the P hit the stores came 2Pacalypse Now, Tupac’s debut album as a solo artist (for which he spelt his name 2Pac).

Although his first album did not yield any hits, it sold a respectable 500,000 copies and established Tupac as an uncompromising social commentator on songs such as “Brenda’s Got a Baby” — which narrates an underaged mother’s fall into destitution — and “Soulja’s Story,” which controversially spoke of “blasting” a police officer and “droppin’ the cop.” The song was cited as a motivation for a real-life cop killing by a teenage car thief called Ronald Ray Howard, and was condemned by the then-U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle. “There is absolutely no reason for a record like this to be published,” Quayle said. “It has no place in our society.” With those words, Shakur’s notoriety was guaranteed.

Tupac would often complain that he was misunderstood. “Everything in life is not all beautiful,” he told the investigative journalist Chuck Phillips. “There is lots of killing and drugs. To me a perfect album talks about the hard stuff and the fun and caring stuff . . . The thing that bothers me is that it seems like a lot of the sensitive stuff I write just goes unnoticed.”

Legal Drama and Serving Jail Time

There would soon be more controversy in August 1992 when Tupac was attacked by jealous youths in Marin City and drew his pistol but dropped it in the melee. Someone picked it up, the gun fired, and a six-year-old bystander, Qa’id Walker-Teal, fell down dead. Tupac was not charged for Walker-Teal’s death, though was reportedly inconsolable. (In 1995, Walker-Teal’s family brought a civil case against Shakur, but settled out of court after an unnamed record company — thought to have been Death Row — offered compensation of between $300,000-$500,000.) Tupac did go to jail for 15 days in 1994 for assaulting the director Allen Hughes, who had fired him from the set of the movie Menace II Society for being disruptive.

And things looked even worse for the rapper after an incident in Atlanta in October 1993 when he shot and wounded two white off-duty cops — one in the abdomen and one in the buttocks — after an altercation. But the charges were dropped after it emerged in court that the policemen had been drinking, had initiated the incident, and that one of the officers had threatened Tupac with a stolen gun. The case perfectly illustrated the misrepresentation of African-American males, and the attitude of some police towards them, which Tupac had been talking about in his music — what was portrayed as gun-toting “gangster” behavior by a lawless individual turned out to be an act of self-defense by a young man in fear of his life.

All the while, Tupac’s star continued to rise. His second album, Strictly 4 My Niggaz, dropped in February 1993 — and continued in the same socially conscious vein as his debut. On the gold-certified single “Keep Ya Head Up,” he empathized with “my sisters on the welfare,” encouraging them to “please don’t cry, dry your eyes, never let up.” The video featured a cameo from his good friend, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith. The album also featured contributions from Tupac’s stepbrother, Mopreme, who became a member of the hip hop group Thug Life, which Tupac started and which released the album Thug Life: Volume 1 in 1994. Despite the incident with director Allen Hughes, Tupac continued his acting career — starring alongside Janet Jackson in 1993’s Poetic Justice and Mickey Rourke in 1996’s Bullet.

Tupac vs. Biggie Smalls (aka The Notorious B.I.G.)

Before Tupac could release his third album, there was more trouble. In November 1994, he was shot multiple times in the lobby of a Manhattan recording studio, Quad, by two young black men. Tupac believed his rap rival Biggie Smalls was behind the shooting, for which nobody has ever been charged (Smalls always denied he knew anything; in 2011 Dexter Isaac, a New York prisoner serving a life sentence for an unrelated crime, claimed he was paid to steal from Shakur by the artist manager and mogul James “Henchman” Rosemond, and had shot the rapper during the robbery).

Months later, in February 1995, Tupac was sentenced to between one and half and four and a half years of jail time for sexually abusing a female fan. The case related to an incident that had taken place in Tupac’s suite in the Parker Meridien hotel in New York, in November 1993. In spite of the sentence, Tupac maintained that he had not raped the girl, but confessed to the Vibe magazine journalist Kevin Powell that he could have prevented others who were present in the suite at the time from doing so. “I had a job [to protect her],” he said, expressing his sorrow, “and I never showed up.”

Tupac’s ‘Me Against the World,’ Signing on with Death Row

When Tupac’s third album came out on March 14, 1995, he was still in jail. Its title, Me Against the World, could not have been more apt. It reached No. 1 in the Billboard 200 chart and is considered by many to be his magnum opus — “by and large a work of pain, anger and burning desperation” wrote Cheo H. Coker at Rolling Stone. But there was vulnerability, too — lead single, “Dear Mama,” was a tear-jerking tribute to his mother, Afeni.

While Tupac was in prison he was visited by Suge Knight, the notorious label boss of Death Row records. Knight offered to post the $1.3 million dollar bail Tupac needed to be released pending his appeal. The condition was that Tupac sign on to Death Row. Tupac duly signed and was released from the high-security Dannemora facility in New York in October 1995.

Tupac’s debut for Death Row — the double-length album All Eyez on Me — came out just months later, in February 1996. With his new hip hop group Outlawz debuting on the album, All Eyes on Me was an unapologetic celebration of the thug lifestyle, eschewing socially conscious lyrics in favour of gangsta-funk hedonism and menace. Dr Dre, who had pioneered g-funk with NWA, produced the album’s first single, “California Love” — which went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and remains Tupac’s best-known song. The third single from the album, “How Do You Want It,” also reached No. 1. Within two months of its release, All Eyez on Me had been certified five-times double-platinum. It would eventually become diamond certified.

At the same time as he was glorifying an outlaw lifestyle for Death Row, Tupac was financing an at-risk youth center, bankrolling South Central sports teams, setting up a telephone help line for young people with problems — all noted in Robert Sam Anson’s Vanity Fair article, published after Tupac’s death. But when he was still alive, the wider world seemed most enthralled with Tupac in the role of the bad man. And Tupac kept playing to the gallery. In June 1996 he released a diss track, “Hit ‘Em Up,” aimed at Biggie Smalls and his label boss at Bad Boy Records, Sean “Puffy” Combs — ratcheting up the tension between East and West Coast rap, in what was fast becoming hip hop’s most famous — and ugliest — beef.

Violent Death in Vegas

Things came to a head on September 7, 1996 when Tupac was shot again. This time he would not survive. He was in Vegas with Knight to watch a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand hotel. There was a scuffle after the bout between a member of the Crips gang and Tupac. Knight, who was involved with the rival Bloods gang, and members of his entourage also piled in. Later, as a car that Tupac was sharing with Knight stopped at a red light, a man emerged from another car and fired 13 shots, hitting Tupac in the hand, pelvis and chest. He died at the hospital six days later. His girlfriend Kidada — daughter of Quincy Jones — and his mother Afeni were both with him in his final days. He left no children.

Tupac’s body was cremated and members of his old band Outlawz made the controversial claim that they had smoked some of his ashes in honor of him. As for the rest of the rapper’s remains, his mother announced she would scatter her son’s ashes in Soweto, South Africa — the “birthplace of his ancestors” — on the 10th anniversary of his murder. However, she later changed the date to June 16, 1997 (Tupac’s 26th birthday as well as the anniversary of the 1976 Soweto uprising), citing personal reasons.

Tupac’s murder has never been solved; conspiracy theories have raged ever since. (And so has the ugly profiteering — the BMW in which Tupac was riding when he was fatally shot went on sale in February 2017 on the memorabilia site Moments in Time, priced at $1.5 million.) On March 9, 1997, six months after Tupac died, Biggie Smalls was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. His murder has never been solved, either.

Posthumous Albums & Musical Legacy

Tupac’s fifth album — Don Killuminati: The Seven Day Theory — was released just eight weeks after his death. It would also reach No. 1. It was the first of six posthumous studio albums, up to and including Pac’s Life in 2006 — two more than Tupac managed when he was alive. He has sold more than 75 million albums to date.

On April 7, 2017 Tupac Shakur received one of music’s highest honors by being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. A worthy inclusion for a rapper held by many to have been the greatest of all time.

A biopic, All Eyez on Me, directed by Benny Boom and starring Demetrius Shipp Jr., was released in 2017.

The band released its first album, The Fourth World, in 1997, as high school seniors. Kara’s Flowers released one single, “Soap Disco,” and appeared on an episode of Beverly Hills 90210, before finding success elusive and breaking up.

Levine and Carmichael left Los Angeles for Long Island, New York, to attend Five Towns College, a music and performing arts school. Living in New York exposed the pair to an entirely different music scene, involving large doses of R&B and hip-hop, and Levine would later say that living in New York had a large impact on his musical point-of-view.

Maroon 5

Levine and Carmichael dropped out of Five Towns and returned to Los Angeles in 2000. There, they reunited with the other members of Kara’s Flowers and added a new member, guitarist James Valentine (Carmichael moved to keyboards). The band then changed its name to Maroon 5 and released its debut album, Songs About Jane, in 2002. Two years later, after slowly climbing the charts, the album went platinum, and the song’s music video turned Adam Levine into an instant sex symbol.

Maroon 5 earned their first Grammy Award (best new artist) in 2004. The band would go on to win Grammys for best pop performance in 2005 and 2007.Songs About Jane was followed by It Won’t Be Soon Before Long (2007) and Hands All Over (2010), the latter of which featured the smash hit “Moves Like Jagger,” which peaked at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, on the Billboard chart. Levine has also found success along the way by appearing on other musicians’ albums, working with such superstars as Kanye West, Alicia Keys and Natasha Bedingfield.In 2012, Maroon 5 returned to the charts with its fourth studio album, Overexposed, featuring hits like “One More Night” and “Payphone” with Wiz Khalifa. Levine and his bandmates went on an international tour to promote the recording. The band continued to enjoy great popularity with its next effort, V (2014). The album contained hits “Maps” and “Animals.”

In 2013, Levine entered his fourth season on The Voice, appearing alongside Blake Shelton as well as newcomers Shakira and Usher, who replaced Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green as judges for that season. That same year, Levine debuted his first perfume line, which features products for both men and women. He also signed a development deal with NBC for possible new series and specials for the television network.

Outside of singing and appearing on TV, Adam Levine has devoted his time to the advancement of various causes, including awareness for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, testicular cancer (for which he posed nude for Cosmopolitan magazine) and gay rights.

Famous Quote

“The idea of ‘talking white,’ a lot of people grew up around that, just the idea that if you speak with proper diction and come off as educated that it’s not black and that it’s actually anti-black and should be considered only something that white people would do.”

 

Barry White bio

Barry White bio

Born in Galveston, TX, Barry White grew up singing gospel songs with his mother and taught himself to play piano. Shortly after moving from Texas to South Central Los Angeles, White made his recording debut at the tender age of 11, playing piano on Jesse Belvin’s “Goodnight My Love.” He made his first record when he was 16 with a group called the Upfronts. The song was called “Little Girl” on a local L.A. label called Lummtone Records. Later he worked for various independent labels around Los Angeles, landing an A&R position with Bob Keane, the man responsible for the first pop recordings by Sam Cooke. One of his labels, Mustang, was hot at the time with a group called the Bobby Fuller Four in 1966. White was hired for 40 dollars a week to do A&R for Keane’s family of labels: Del-Fi, Mustang and Bronco. One of the first groups he worked with was the Versatiles who later changed their name to the 5th Dimension. White’s first big hit came from an artist familiar to dancefloor denizens, Viola Wills, whose “Lost Without the Love of My Guy” went Top 20 R&B. White started working with the Bobby Fuller Four. Bob Keene and Larry Nunes (who later became White’s spiritual advisor and true friend) wanted to cut a female act. White had heard about a singer named Felice Taylor. They had three hit records, “It May Be Winter Outside”, “I’m Under the Influence of Love” and “I Feel Love Coming On”. They were huge hits in England.

During the course of his career in the music business, White achieved 106 gold albums worldwide, 41 of which also attained platinum status. White had 20 gold and 10 platinum singles, with worldwide record sales in excess of 100 million. He is one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time. His influences included Rev.

Aqua bands

Aqua’s are team of four and they names and stay names are listed below

Members:

Lene Nystrøm (Vocalist)

René Dif (Vocalist)

Søren Rasted (Keyboardist)

Claus Norreen (Guitarist)

Aqua (allegedly, this name was derived from a poster featuring an aquarium hanging in their rehearsal room) is a Danish euro dance group, best known for their 1997 breakthrough single “Barbie Girl”, which aroused controversy when Mattel (The Barbie Doll makers) filed a lawsuit against them for the sexual overtones inherent in the song. The lawsuit was finally dismissed by a judge in 2002, who ruled “The parties are advised to chill”.

The group formed in 1989 and achieved huge success around the globe in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The group released three albums: Aquarium (1997), Aquarius 2000 and Megalomania (2011). The group sold an estimated 33 million albums and singles, making them the most successful Danish band ever. In their prime, Aqua’s singles managed to chart top ten in a number of countries where European pop acts would not normally succeed, including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and Japan. The group managed to top the UK Singles Chart with three of their singles. During their split, Nystrøm, Dif and Rasted all achieved solo chart success, and Norreen continued in the music industry remixing other artists’ material.
