The Flashback Fridays For 1/29/16: Missy Elliott - Work It (2002)

Instead of how bad the new song she has out is, flashback to when Missy was at her true peak with flow and Timbaland beat selection. It's the classic from 14 years ago after the success of the "Miss E...SO Addictive" album....

From "Under Construction," it's lead single "Work It" from 2002 by one Missy Elliott.

More to come at The Whole Delivery today, stay tuned.

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 1/15/16: Ne-Yo feat Peddi Crakk - Stay (2005)

The Flashback Fridays for 2016 really gets into high gear on the third Friday of the new year. It's the debut single a decade ago that put Ne-Yo on the journey from talented behind the scenes songwriter to platinum star artist. With the fine production effort of the Neff-U, Rob Feemstar, giving the instrumental, it's the artist Shaffer Smith with Peddi Crakk with "Stay."

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 12/18/15: OutKast - Ms. Jackson (2000)

The first Flashback today is from the 4th album that further certified Andre and Big Boi status as music legends of current times. A second single hit was needed after the high energy fun but depressing title choice and sorta flop that was "B.O.B." And they got that in this smooth classic produced by them and Mr. DJ.

There was no long term taint however with this one. "Ms. Jackson" really got Stankonia the crossover sales it needed to become the selling hit album it became as you know. So, first Flashback of the day, enjoy.

More from The Whole Delivery, soon.

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 12/4/15: Mary J. Blige - Family Affair (2001)

Based off her rousing performance in the fine live remake of The Wiz on NBC, TWD celebrates its first Flashback Friday selection of December 2015 with one Mary J.Blige.

The wicked witch was superb in her role Thursday evening, and provided all the elements that showed why Ms. 411 is always as real as they come.

Taking it back to her 2001 "revival," it's the smooth joint that lead to a Jadakiss and Fabolous remix and another in the sound production archives of Dr. Dre. It's "Family Affair," as the Flashback Fridays return.

And there will be another Flashback Friday selection coming soon.

The Flashback Fridays #2 For 10/23/15: Jojo - Leave (Get Out) (2004)

Before major label troubles that showcased how she was certainly the opposite of a soft, cookie cutter pop princess some wanted to carve her into, Jojo really appeared to be someone who would have the status that Taylor Swift occupies now.

Back in 2004, "Leave (Get Out)" was a powerful enough beginning for her, with this video retired on MTV's TRL thanks to the quality production of Danish R&B/soul producers Soulshock & Karlin. It reached #12 on the Billboard 100 and was a force across the world, especially Down Under in Australia and New Zealand.

Though Jojo now hates how this song and the rest of her first album sounded, she's still appreciates it enough due to it being her start in the game. And though she has never built on that early promise thanks to the aforementioned label struggles, along with the occasional difficulties for many childhood stars to keep their illumination going into their young adulthood, Jojo is certainly not giving up hope of reaching the top.

So, without further adu (no pun intended to her and former boyfriend Freddy Adu), it's Jojo's first single, from 2004, "Leave (Get Out)."

Quite the contrast from the first Flashback of the day choice this week, isn't it? More to come at The Whole Delivery. 

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 10/23/15: M.O.P - Ante Up (2000)

(Viewer and listener discretion is advised, especially if you aren't black and/or lived in an American hood).

A song near and dear to my heart, since it was filmed in my neighborhood 15 years ago. It's the crowning moment of M.O.P's respectable career (and before they went the disastrous G-Unit route).

It's the North Brooklyn hood classic that gave so much energy to Tompkins Park when they shot the video in the area during that 2000 summer. It's the unapologetic  "Ante Up," your first Flashback Friday video of the day.

More to come from TWD Friday, stay tuned.
