Maxwell, the alpha male of neo-soul, returns to bless us with his BLACKsummers’night, the sensuous opening installment of the artist’s monumental BLACKSUMMERS’NIGHT trilogy. The trilogy’s subsequent chapters, blackSUMMERS’night and blacksummers’NIGHT, are slated for release in 2010 and 2011 respectively. This album is exactly what the industry needs right now; real music, real emotions, and most importantly no vocoder, or throwaway beats.

After Kelly Clarkson said “Ryan and I met each other at the record label, before he was working with anyone else. He’s from Oklahoma, I’m from Texas; we got along really well and had some of the same influences. We wrote about six songs together, four or five of them made the album. It was all fine and dandy. I’d never heard of a song called Halo. Her album came out when my album was already being printed. No-one’s gonna be sittin’ at home, thinking ‘Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyonce and Kelly the same track to write to.’ No, they’re just gonna be saying I ripped someone off. I called Ryan and said, ‘I don’t understand. Why would you do that?’”
Ryan Tedder recently said ““Already Gone” is one of the best song I’ve written or produced since “Bleeding Love” and stands tall on it’s own merits apart from “Halo”. They are two entirely different songs conceptually, melodically, & lyrically and I would never try to dupe an artist such as Kelly Clarkson or Beyoncé into recording over the same musical track, the idea is both hurtful & absurd. I think when people hear “Already Gone” they will hear what I hear-one of the greatest female vocalists on earth giving her most haunting and heart-breaking performance on a song she helped write. I challenge people to listen and form their own opinions“.
I personally think they don’t sound THAT similar to each other, but all of Tedder’s productions sound alike. But I can see why Kelly would be mad, she raved about Already Gone before her or Beyoncé’s album were released, and was very proud of her work with Tedder.

Are you a Viva user? Zain? Wataniya? well, for the latter two it wouldn’t be of much difference since you can pay online. But our dear Viva (my internet provider) doesn’t offer online payment, so you’d have to go to one of their branches to pay. Imagine my surprise when I was walking in our university (KU) and I find this machine. It’s been there for ages, but I never cared to see what it does. Anyways, here’s a picture (below) that shows brand options, from Zain to CashU.
It’s cool isn’t it? I don’t have to go their branch to pay my bills. It’ll do until they launch their online payment service.

Skream’s Let Get Ravey Remix takes the song to another level, on it’s own. It takes off the punchy beats, and replaces them with an eerie music that suprisingly work well for the song. If you loved the original one but got bored of it, this is for you.
Here’re volumes 1 and 2 if you’ve missed them.
