5 Celebs Who Need To Make A Music Comeback
If you’ve been anywhere near a television or radio station for about the last decade you seen its slow and painful demise. Over the years music has gone through numerous transformations. It’s gone from heights of pure greatness to well, just watch an episode of 106 & Park to see how far it has fallen. Today’s music has lost its flavor, its edge and its originality. Ask any true music fan and they’ll probably tell you that one of the golden ages for music was during the 90s. The music during the 90s was fresh, dope, and all that and a bag of chips. Artists didn’t follow a formula, they followed their hearts and the result was music that pretty much shaped a generation and is still beloved to this day. Even though those days are gone, there are a more than a few artists we would love to see make a major music comeback and show this new school how it’s really done.
Today’s singers have talent, but En Vogue had soul. These women were not only the ideal for many other girl groups that followed, but their vocal abilities together, and individually, were off the charts! Even with stars like Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson around, a comeback from the original ‘Funky Divas’ would be a breath of fresh air to the world of music.
Boyz II Men
Can’t talk about the ladies of En Vogue and not mention Boyz II Men. These Philly boys practically ruled 90s R&B with their melodic harmonies and in a world where music is more about booty shaking than love making, we say a come back from them would be right on time.
Sure Foxy has seemed a bit off her rocker in recent years and she definitely needs to let go of the 90s style wet and wavy 16inch weave, but in her day Fox Boogie was a beast. Her flows stood up against the hardest of male rappers and even against the ‘Hardcore’ queen herself Lil Kim. With only Nicki Minaj leading the pack for the ladies, if Foxy gets her act together and taps back into that special place that made us love her so much, there’s no doubt that her comeback could be strong and put true female emcees back on the map.
A Tribe Called Quest
Forget Watch The Throne, one of the most anticipated albums for lovers of great hip-hop would have to be from A Tribe Called Quest. When you talk about originality in music you definitely have to mention the Abstract Poetic, Five Foot Assasin , and Mr. Muhammad. With classics like Award Tour, Electric Relaxation, Check The Rhyme and Scenario, ATCQ’s sound has inspired everyone from Common and The Roots, to Jill Scott and Kanye West. To say they’ve left a mark would be an understatement.
In the late 90s DMX hit the scene like a rabid pitbull and took hold of the rap game in a major way. His gritty voice and dark, yet at times soul searching, lyrics hypnotized you and either made you want to slap someone or party all night long. His debut album It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, is arguably a classic and his style has been imitated but never truly duplicated. Currently still battling the same demons he famously rapped about on his albums, DMX’s presence is definitely missed in this world of fly by night rappers.
