Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Put It On Me by Ja Rule featuring Lil 'Mo and Vita. This is a good song it was released as a single in December 2000 (in America). The original version of the song doesn't contain Lil' Mo's vocals, so this is actually the remix.  The original version is on Ja Rule's second album Rule 3:36 (2000).

Ja Rule seems to have disappeared lately. He's had several legal issues and went to prison last year but was released in May 2013. His last album was PIL 2 (Pain Is Love 2) which was released in 2012. According to Wikipedia he brought out two singles last year, Fresh Out Da Pen and Everything. Also he and Irv Gotti have relaunched Murder Inc Records. (Murder Inc-which changed its name to The Inc for a while- had various issues, including having links to criminal activities). Ja is said to have been working on an 8th album called Renaissance Project but it has no release date so far.

Listen to the original version here:

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
