54th Annual Grammy Award Nominations

 

Nominees have been announced for the 2012 Grammys. Of course, we got the assumed contenders like Rihanna, Kanye, Nicki Minaj, Coldplay, Bon Iver, and yeah, Wiz Khalifa. But personally, we are especially excited about several of our prided projects getting nominated this year! And probably not surprising that miss Adele is definitely taking the cake here. Many congratulations to some great artists and musicians! The 54th Grammys will air on Feb 12th. For a full list of the nominees, click here.

With Second Chance, El DeBarge, one of R&B’s most distinctive and celebrated voices, returns to the spotlight after more than a decade and a half away. In stores now, the album – which features the work of such legendary producer/songwriters as Babyface and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, alongside tracks by new hitmakers Mike City, the Avila Brothers and Michael Angelo – tells the story of DeBarge’s redemption following a period of personal turmoil. Second Chance took on its full meaning when he began recording the title track, which became the first single. The new single “Lay With You” features Faith Evans.

El DeBarge’s triumphant appearance at the 2010 BET Awards, which instantly lit up the international soul blogosphere, was just the first step in a remarkable story of personal and creative transformation.
