RL (formerly of the R&B group Next) joins us on this podcast to talk about the effects of social media on the careers of Justin Bieber and Chris Brown. He brings up the “Why You Always Lying” video that’s been floating around Vine. We also discuss if everyone believes Timbaland is the best R&B producer in the post 90’s R&B era. We also touch on RL’s upcoming project and the various challenges that come with putting it out. And the food discussion for this week? Find out what RL’s childhood sandwich consisted of.

    Much respect to RL—he gave a lot of great insight into the inner workings of today’s music industry.

    However, I have to disagree with him on one point: I consider Brandy to be a full-fledged artist, not just a performer or vocalist. She may not produce her own music, but I can tell that she is in complete control of her creative output. She has done a considerable amount of songwriting, both for herself and others. Not to mention the fact that she does all her own vocal production. All of those classic, layered three- or four-part harmonies? Those are all Brandy. And they are really what sets her apart from the rest.

    Also, Aphrodisiac > Full Moon, haha!
