It seems like this past week in entertainment was the season to be jolly, get engaged, release new music, and announce the album queen of the year!
Two days after Christmas, B.O.B served us up with a late Christmas gift with his second single, “Play the Guitar” featuring Andre 3000. Before listening to the song, you already have an ounce of excitement knowing that your ears will be graced with the voice of hip-hop veteran Andre 3000. As soon as the beat starts your involuntary head bob begins. There’s no miss with this song. B.O.B has taken his craft to the next level. This song shows us that he has truly found his sound, perfectly mixing the Hip-Hop ingredients with rock spices. Andre 3000 puts the icing on the cake and takes it home for their listeners. Take a listen below and let us know what you think.
Tis’ the perfect season to pop the question! John Legend was elated to hear the answer, “Yes” from model Chrissy Teigen. “The lovely couple got engaged over the holidays while vacationing in the Maldives,” the R&B singer’s rep, Cindi Berger confirmed to People Magazine. It’s always refreshing to see the love of two people grow into a beautiful commitment such as marriage. I am looking forward to seeing the wedding photos in the near future. The High Up and Aspire Online Media family congratulate the couple on their engagement.
It is no surprise who the crowned queen of 2011 music is. Adele conquered music in 2011 with her album “21”. In every artist’s career, they dread the possibility of a sophomore slump. Released in February, Adele’s album defied those odds and soared into iconic horizons. In barely 11 months, she has sold more than any artist in the world, currently stepping into 13 million albums sold worldwide. Her songs express the stories of a heart that had been broken accompanied by a rare and authentic voice and delivery. She is truly one of a kind. Although she has experienced trials with her voice throughout the year, forcing her at times to cancel shows and tours, she has still managed to take the number one slot effortlessly. With no hesitation, I can say that she will be here for years to come. We can only hope that she has a successful recovery that will keep her where she belongs – on stage and in our hearts.
With the New Year upon us full throttle, we are curious to see how HIGH entertainment and music will take us in the coming months. Keep it plugged for more entertainment and music news right here at The HIGH UP.

With his long range of music capabilities, we never know what to expect next from B.O.B. At one moment he may provide an inspirational anthem such as “Airplanes” or a pop classic such as “Nothing on You” and then turn around with a Hip-Hop hit like “Bet I” while continuing to capture our interest in his talent and personality. Unlike his last album opener, B.O.B has returned with the highly energized Hip-Hop party song “Strange Clouds” with the help of Lil Wayne released on September 27th. I wouldn’t be surprised if this became another club anthem. With the anticipation of his sophomore release, I am quite certain this will keep the listeners anxious to hear what he has in store for the sound waves next. “Strange Clouds” ft. Lil Wayne is now available on Itunes at id467890644.webloc.
