Taraji P. Henson stars in the female version of the 2000 film What Women Want (starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt). Henson plays a sports agent who is passed up for an admission into her firm’s partnership because she “doesn’t connect well with men.” She goes to see a psychic (played by Erykah Badu) for help and somehow ends up being able to hear men’s thought, and as you can imagine, comedy ensues.

The cast of What Men Want includes Tracy Morgan, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Max Greenfield, Pete Davidson, Shaquille O’Neal and Grant Hill. The movie is set to hit theaters on January 11, 2019. Watch the trailer below.

The first track from Queen — which I will be reviewing soon — now has a video, and it is every bit as underwhelming as the song. The video starts with this epic tale about a queen that defended her avenged her empire after attack from enemies; it almost gets you excited for what you’re about to see, and then the video starts. And for six minutes, you’re waiting for the action promised to you by that story about war and victory. Watch for yourself. Smh.

Listen…I’ve never doubted that the woman who made “Goodies” and “1, 2 Step” could give us a good song, but she’s been holding out on us these last few years. This collaboration with Nigerian singer Tekno is just what summer needed, and this infusion of Afropop — or “Afrobeats” as some people call it — is just what Ciara needs right now. It’s a fresh sound that doesn’t stray too far away from her artistic domain.

I will take this as an apology for “Level Up.” Check it out below.

Today would’ve been Whitney Houston’s 55th birthday, so it’s only right that this week’s TBT post is dedicated to her.

“How Will I Know” was the fifth single from Nippy’s self-titled debut album and the second of her 11 No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Originally intended for a teenage Janet Jackson (whose management turned it down), the song became Whitney’s after the suits at Arista Records heard it and thought it was the perfect for Whitney’s upcoming debut. And the rest is history.

I have spent a considerable amount of time trying to imagine what “How Will I Know” would sound like if Janet sang it — I actually think it would’ve been dope — but I am thankful that Whitney got a hold of it. No one else could’ve sung it this well.

Almost a month after the track dropped, we now have a video for “Sun in Our Eyes.” I don’t know about this one; yes, a beach setting with lots of popping colors might’ve been too obvious, but this video doesn’t do justice to the song at all. According to MØ, the theme is Peter Pan and the Lost Boys “sailing instead of flying.” I vote nay, but check it out for yourself.

Until now, I didn’t know there was a James Blake vocal solo and a harmonica performance from Stevie Wonder at the end of this song because I tapped out after 2-3 minutes when I first listened to it this past Friday. Astroworld was difficult to get through because that zombie music does my head in. That being said, the video for “Stop Trying to Be God” is quite entertaining and makes the earlier parts of the song a lot more bearable. Between Travis playing God and defeating Satan (also played by Travis), and people turning into Travis look-alikes after baptism (by a priest also played by Travis), this video will have you cracking up. Check it out below.

Ella Mai released a new song over the weekend and it is “Boo’d Up” redux. I’m not familiar with any of her other work, so I can’t tell if this is her sound in general or her sticking to a formula that works. Either way, it’s not a bad song. Check it out below.
