John Legend has released a video for "All Of Me" that features his wife Chrissy Tiegen. Legend and Tiegen find themselves in all sorts nude poses in the black & white clip.
It is classy sexy, not dirty sexy. It isn't as hot as say "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak. Still, it is quite beautiful.-DocFB
Diagnosis: No imperfections....
A few months ago, after the Trayvon Martin incident, we asked readers of Drfunkenberry.com to send in photos of them in hoodies and we would use it for a future project. That project is a special cover of the Lalah Hathaway "We're All In This Together" song featuring Shelby J., Anthony Hamilton, Take 6 & Crazy Ned.
We caught up with Shelby J recently and talked about Trayvon;
"We must continue to fight for the Justice we need in this World for all of God's children. Trayvon will not be 4gotten or the 100's of other "Trayvon's" that don't get justice."
Also, Shelby told us that the world should get ready for her first upcoming solo album entitled "Just Shelby" and it WILL be released this year.
Shelby's team is currently weighing her many options for who will have the honor of distributing this cd full of as Shelby says "songs with purpose, sayin' somethin', ya dig. Not just rhyming words with no message!"
Shelby believes in true substance over flash in the pan style or "a look" that's here 2day...4gotten about next week! Like Adele said, "She makes music 4 the ears not the eyes". But Ms. Shelby is Very easy on our eyes.
I know folks will feel the depth of soul, struggle, joy, love, determination & experience in her music. She states
I write it, produce it, & stand behind it! A true artist paints their OWN picture."
This being said, I did hear a rumor that some of Shelby's many musical friends may be making guest appearances on her project. But not too many, she says. "I don't get when an artist puts out a record & has a guest artist on like 8 out of 10 songs. I never understood that. Aretha didn't have to do it."

Andy Allo took to V101.1 FM In Sacramento with Big Al this morning, previewing new tracks from "Superconductor" and who worked on the CD with her, including Prince, Maceo Parker, Trombone Shorty, and others.
They talked all about that and more....all on one mic!!! The station has been moving buildings and did not have everything hooked up.
The songs previewed were "People Pleaser", "Superconductor", and "When Our Worlds Collide" and talked about making the record.
Big Al did want to pry a bit and ask what's going on with her and Prince. Andy said that he is a really good friend who surprised her by showing up in the studio in Sacramento while she is finishing up the CD.
It was nice to hear Andy talk about the experience making the CD and talking about touring with Prince & The NPG. I feel this was a great side to see and hear from her.
Here are a few clear sound clips from the show we were sent;
Someone caught the entire interview, which took place over 90 minutes, below. The clip below, the audio is not as clear as above but it does feature songs from "Superconductor" and a few other small clips.
Check out the lovely and talented Miss Andy Allo and say it with us...."Superconductor"...spell it out. Big Al. Just playing man! Thanks for everything.-DocFB
