About 15 minutes, connects emailed me the official video of Lady Gaga feat. Beyonce Telephone. The long awaited video has had the entire music industry on pins and needles. But here at the Black Tie Affair we are broadcasting it to you right now. After watching the video, I must say that its not what i thought it would be. Gaga, chose to set this video up as a mini movie featuring the Queen Bey, and R&B singer Tyrese. If you pay close attention, you'll see various relations to the the Blockbuster film Kill Bill: Vol, 1&2. Overall this video left me extremely speechless in the end, especially the To Be Continued.... left at the end of the movie. So does this mean there is a remix approaching?..speculations say maybe. but here at TBTA will keep you posted every step of the way.

Tonight was the season finale of season 3 American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino's VH1 show Fantasia: For Real. Night after night we watched Tasia struggle with family and issues of the industry. But through it all she made it. Fantasia recently released her first single Even Angels off her 3 and long awaited album that's due to drop later this year. The soft and sweet track allows Tasia to pour out her soul and if you listen closely, you can even hear her crying. Fantasia believes "I cant sing a song unless i can really relate to it". And judging from the few songs on the show, this is her supreme breakout album. So bump all the other blogs, this one is on Team Fantasia. And will continue to bring you the goods surrounding our girl. Hopefully we can get an interview sometime soon.
ATL's own and friend to all who love true rap music, Ludacris is back with another studio album. Battle of The Sexes is truly one for the clubs. Featuring artist like Nicki Minaj, Lil' Kim, Monica, Trey Songz, etc. Luda's album will truly be the talk of the Spring and Summer. The official release date is 3/9/10. And if you thought How Low and My Bad Chick were bangers, go cop the album for yourself and see just how fye it really is. We give mad props to Ludacris, and continue to wish him much success. Allegedly Luda is a fan of the Black Tie Affair. Well we hope he like this post!!!!!!
Today was the official sentencing of Young Money CEO Lil' Wayne. These past few days of his freedom have truly been hard for his family and those dear to him, especially his fans. As a process of preparing for his sentence, Wayne had to get dental veneers, replacing his platinum grill. He also had to allegedly cut off his hair. Wow! when Wayne gets out, we really wont recognize him. All day today, the members of Young Money; Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Gutta Gutta, etc. tweeted their encouraging words for Wayne, as he headed to prison. Wayne is truly gonna be missed, but we all know this gives him time to come harder once released.

Its seems as if only a few months ago, R&B singer Nivea had just given birth to her and Lil' Wayne's first child. Now she's back in the studio working on a new album. Earlier today Nivea released her latest video entitled "Love Hurts" were she bears all about here and Weezy's relationship. As if this was juicy enough, she features Wayne in the video, were he plays her love interest. Ironic?, by no means. We all are aware that Wayne will be serving time in jail pretty soon, so I guess Nivea wanted to air all this dirty laundry ASAP. I wonder what Lauren London has to say about this? TBTA has the official cut of Nivea's video, check it out yourself.
