CelebrityMinistry will start to bring you R/B Tuesday’s from this point on. R/B Tuesday’s will consist of some of the hottest r/b songs current, & past that you may have missed. The songs that will be posted will in our opinion be must haves (if you are a true r/b lover). With the music industry seeming to shy away from true r/b these days, it’s rare to get must haves in this genre..long gone are the days of old, like the 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s when r/b was at all time high…and people truly made love songs. I don’t have to say what the music has evolved into, but there are still a few trying to bring that genuine r/b music back to the forefront. So with that being said here a few songs, albums, that you want to make sure to add to your collection. Let’s support good music together. We don’t want to let the ONE (black genre..said loosely), fall through the cracks.

Trey Songz-Chapter V
Now I must say that although, in my opinion the album falls short of the greatness that the album, Ready, displayed, but it’s definitely better than PPP, & it’s a MUST HAVE. Check out my 2 fav’s from the album below, and click the link to purchase NOW!



Another album that I’m absolute sure people are sleeping on is Tamia’s: Beautiful Surprise. The lovely Tamia brought it on this album. Heck for all that love nostalgia, she even redid her hit song, Still. This true basketball wife is currently going on tour with the one & only R. Kelly, for his “Single Ladies” tour. Check out her hit song, Beautiful Surprise…you can press play, & walk away..yep it’s that good.

Buy: Tamia-Beautiful Surprise

My throwback joint for this entry is Boyz II Men: That’s Why I Love You. Man they simply don’t make music like this anymore. Off of their 2002 album, Full Circle, Boyz II Men continue to make timeless music. Check out the song below, and take that $.99, and buy something good.

Buy: Boyz II Men-That’s Why I Love You



Tamia has re-recorded and re-released her 2004 song “Still.” And she tapped star music writer Claude Kelly to help her re-record the ode to her husband, Grant Hill, on a country remix tip.
With Tamia’s new album Beautiful Surprise dropping on August 28th, the songstress released “Still”, a song she originally released on her 2004 album More, that was first produced by Jermaine Dupri.
This time around, she traveled to Nashville to re-record it with super writer Claude Kelly, who is serving as co-executive producer of her new album. And also brought in country music musicians to give the song a different feel.
The remixed version was explained by reps saying:
The idea for the new version of the record was to record it the way songs used to be done, one take all the way through, no punches, no auto tune or any other new technologies. Tamia and Claude Kelly assembled a group of Nashville country musicians, went into the studio, and had the band play the song live as Tamia recorded her vocals simultaneously. Tamia sang the song straight through 2 to 3 times and they kept the best take.
The romantic, country style version of “Still” will now appear on Beautiful Surprise. (Source)
