Hello Dolls and Divas
Let me start off by saying that I’m not a music expert and I’m not in the music industry. However, music is a huge part of the Atlanta culture and since I am an Atlanta Lifestyle Blogger who loves and knows good music; that certainly qualifies me to give a Music Review.
I was recently invited out to the Cirque Daiquiri Bar and Grill to Althea “Thi Thi” Heart’s Listening Party for her upcoming album titled “Controversy”. Althea is the Fiance’ and soon to be “Baby Muva” of Hip Hop Mogul and VH1 Reality Star Benzino. A very beautiful and pregnant Althea, attended this event with a stunning Backless Black Dress that complimented her figure very well, even with the Baby Bump! The Event was hosted by Benzino, who mingled with the crowd, as his fiance’ kept seated in the VIP section with frequent visits to her table by numerous Media Outlets and Celebrities showing their Support.
In attendance at the listening party were VIP guest: atlantago2rose (Rose Bracy), Debra Antney, Bonecrusher, Hurricane Chris, Big Kap, celebrity recording artist Suga Shane and Coo Coo Cal, Fleet DJ Coalition, Dave Mays (the creator of the Source Magazine & Co-Founder of Hip Hop Weekly), Representatives of the famous beer label Anheuser Bush, music executive Orville Hall, celebrity photographer Lorenzo Smith, and a host of celebrated media personalities such as Shannon James of Comcast’s Channel 28.
Althea’s Listening Party was sponsored by Armadale Vodka, Lime-a-rita, Hip Hop Weekly Magazine, and AMS Music Entertainment. This event was coordinated by Dave Mays and Kay Harris (Publicist / Media Correspondent of Hip Hop Weekly).
Okay, so now for what you’re really waiting on…..was the Album really good or naw? The vocals are okay. I wouldn’t say that Althea has a Power House voice (no shade). But I will say this, Althea definitely holds her own and the Album is Dope!!!!! From the first song all the way to the last!!!! Althea’s Controversy Album has a more Hip Hop type flavor, with a few R&B Classic Remixes. The album includes guest artist such as Remy Ma and OJ the Juice Man. According to Benzino, He and Althea are waiting on the perfect timing to release the Album. Both Althea and Benzino admit that opening a new restaurant (Benzino’s Crab Trap), completing an album (Controversy), and expecting a new baby, all that the same time can be quite hectic. However, ensures that this is just the beginning of great things to come from the talented Artist and Mother to be.
