When two of the industry’s biggest heartthrobs come together to create an album, it isn’t hard to imagine what the bulk of the project will focus on. This December, Bow Wow and Omarion will join forces for the duo’s debut, Faceoff.

E3 Movie Review: Step Up 2

If you love a good dance movie then you may want to check out "Step Up 2: The Streets" featuring Bad Boy artist Cassie and a cameo from Channing Tatum (from the original movie Step Up.)

When she joins forces with the school’s hottest dancer Chase (ROBERT HOFFMAN) to form a crew of classmate outcasts to compete in Baltimore’s underground dance battle The Streets, she ultimately finds a way to live her dream while building a bridge between her two separate worlds.

E3 presents: 2 Artist & 1 Track

Beyonce had a whole mess of unreleased tracks from her B’Day sessions and Mario has had some trouble with album release dates (Go! has been pushed back a lot since last year), so they both had some leftover tracks and time to mess around in the studio. So, here are two different version of the song “If.” Beyonce’s version is very melodic, and full of drama - from the vocal arrangement, to the production.

Mario’s version is more R&B-flavored song (he sings similar lyrics to the Beyonce version, but over Trey Songz’s “Can’t Help But Wait” track).
Even though they are two completely different takes on the song, you know E3 has to ask the question… who sang it better? Did Beyonce kill it, or did Mario do the song justice?
