Remember Adina Howard? The name might seem like a blast from the past, but just like the title of her new single “Switch” Adina has switched up her sound and vibe and is on her way to a catchy musical comeback. Released on iTunes on September 10, “Switch” is more up tempo than her previous mid-90’s R&B hits. The song features a hot electronic background beat with snappy vocals. “Switch” is the lead single from The Switch Up, Adina’s upcoming fifth studio album.

For those of you who don’t remember, the R&B diva made waves with her hit “Freak like Me” which peaked at number 2 on the Billboard charts in May 1995 and was later certified Platinum by the RIAA. From the same Do You Wanna Ride? debut album were the moderately popular releases “My Up and Down” and “It’s All About You.”

The following year Adina made Billboard charts again with “What’s Love Got to Do with It,” which sampled the Tina Turner song of the same name and was featured in the Supercop soundtrack. In subsequent years, Adina continued makes splashes with mid-chart hits like “(Freak) And U Know It,” the fan favorite Platinum-certified song “T-Shirt & Panties” (featuring Jamie Foxx), and the 2004 release “Freaks.”

In the nearly two decades since her last string of hits, Adina has done some cool stuff – things that you probably wouldn’t expect from such an overtly sexual R&B singer. For instance, in 2012, Adina attended and graduated from the Le Cordon Bleu, a culinary institute. Maybe she just wanted to make good on the promise in her “Freak Like Me” lyrics: “I’m packing all the flavor you need”? Whatever the case, she’s taking her cooking seriously; she’s spoken about plans to open a restaurant.

In 2011, Adina got married to her lifelong friend, businessman Sherman Jordan. Perhaps her decision to open up more of her personal life to her fans is part of her “Switch.” Switched, updated, and sexier than ever, Adina is finally set to stage a sonic return.

Cardi B Makes History as First Female Rapper to Land Two No. 1 Singles

Published

on

Cardi B just accomplished something no other female rapper has done.

Thanks to her latest single, I Like It, the New York native is the first female rapper with two songs to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the music magazine reported Monday.

The track featuring Latin music stars Bad Bunny and J Balvin was released in May, and is the latest single off Cardi B’s debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy.

It follows the release of club anthem Bodak Yellow (Money Moves), which climbed to the top of the Hot 100 in October.

Four other female rappers have previously landed No. 1 singles on the Hot 100, including Lauryn Hill with Doo Wop (That Thing) in 1998. Lil’ Kim had Lady Marmalade with Christina Aguilera, Mya and Pink in 2001. Shawnna was featured on Ludacris’ single Stand Up in 2003, and Iggy Azalea with Fancy featuring Charli XCX in 2014.

Before her album was released, Cardi B began to garner attention as a regular castmember on the VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop: New York.

She is currently expecting her first child with rapper Offset of hip-hop trio Migos.

The two tied the knot last year, but never went public with their marriage until Offset let it slip on stage last month during the BET Awards that they are husband and wife. Cardi B has since confirmed the marriage on social media.

You can watch I Like It below….WARNING,  the video  contains profanity.

Mariah previously told fans she was only cancelling shows up until November 27, telling her followers: ‘Lambs! Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, it seems I’ve received a present of my own; a lovely upper respiratory infection after last week’s flu. Bleak!’

She added: ‘You know there is nothing I love more than celebrating the holidays with my festive Christmas show, but I have to take my Doctor’s orders and rest until he says I can sing on stage.

‘Until then, unfortunately, I have to cancel the first several shows of my upcoming Christmas tour. ‘I’m going to do all that I can so that I can see you soon.’

She was also recently forced to pull out of the LA premiere of her animated nativity film The Star, blaming an upset stomach.

While Carey was feeling “under the weather” over Thanksgiving, her twins, Moroccan and Monroe, spent the holiday feeding the homeless with their dad, Nick Cannon.
