YAY!!! It's officially 2007!!!!!!!! I'd like to show some appreciation to the people that helped this blog become what it is... Monica (MMania) and Toya, thanks for showing love for FUNKY-MEDIA!!!!!!!!!! Chinchill, thanks for that Alesha Dixon track!! It's bananas!!! Joey (AKA JoeyJackpot): You've been a real friend, thanks. Kevin, thanks for being my friend through in and out!! You know I enjoy our little IM coversations! (Let's play 'Guess The Song' again!) Benji, let's do another mixtape together. The last one rocked!!!!!!!!! ExtraSmooth83, though I lost my ways of contacting you, I still love ya!! Contact me on MySpace!!!!! A special, special, special, special, special, thanks to Miss Silena Murrell for agreeing to do an interview with me and calling me genuine. I love you!!! Also, Rihanna, Latavia Roberson(when u coming out with a mixtape?) for answering my questions! Chris and Rixhe for being affiliates. My family over at GoAshanti, and BP Forums and THE-IDX. Last but not least, my REAL family for making things happen!
So I decided to end the poll, and here's the results!
1. Ciara/Promise (The Evolution)
So Cici won by a hair... getting 19 votes. No surprise there considering everyone is loving her new album. Don't get me wrong, though, she totally deserves it!!!
2. Beyonce/Irreplaceable (B'Day)
18 votes... one vote short. Someone voted last minute for CiCi, so... I love this song, though! It's the current No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and Bee deserves it. Congrats Bee!!
3. Christina Aguilera/Ain't No Other Man (Back To Basics)
14 votes. Christina went all jazz for her latest album... and everyone liked it! This song was a huge hit, and it's hot!! Go Xtin.. I mean, Baby Jane!!
4. Rihanna/SOS (A Girl Like Me)
I love this song!!! Rihanna really did amazing this year!!!! This was my pick, but it came in fourth, scoring 12 votes. I hope Rihanna comes back stronger than ever in '07!!
5. Nelly Furtado/Maneater (Loose)
Nelly started to dance this year, and everyone was feelin' it. Her song "Promiscuous" was a No. 1 hit in the U.S., while "Maneater" was an international hit, getting No. 1 in more than 5 countries. Her infectious album was also a huge hit. She got 11 votes.
6. Monica/Beat Drop (Makings of Me)
7 votes. Hated the song, loved the album. "Beat Drop" was my least fave song off of MOM... I wonder why it was even chosen as a single. It was a hit, though... TOP 40 U.S.
7. Shakira/Don't Bother (Oral Fixation Vol. 2)
Shakira got 3 votes. Good for her!! I enjoyed both this album and song... Can't wait for her duet with Beyonce!
8. Jamelia/Beware of The Dog (Walk With Me)
Jamelia went rock and nobody noticed... expect the 2 people that voted for her and moi...oh, and PopJustice, too. Anyways, this song is hot!!
9. Gwen Stefani/Wind It Up (The Sweet Escape)
Only 1 person was feeling this 'evolution'... strange, yet true...
10. Fantasia/Hood Boy (Fantasia)
I was really in shock when I saw this... 0 freakin' votes!!! U gotta be kidding! Well, I enjoyed her album...

Best Album of '06:
1.LeToya by LeToya
I bet you didn't see this coming. I didn't gush over this album as I have others, but honestly, this is a masterpiece. The songs aren't overdone or underdown, they're just right and perfect.
