Beyoncé isn’t the only one to put a ring on it. Singer-songwriter Jesse McCartney exclusively tells Rap-Up.com about a similar ring-themed track he wrote for Toni Braxton’s new album.
“I did a record for Toni Braxton called ‘My Ring’s Too Heavy,’” says the soon-to-be 22-year-old pop star, whose album Departure: Recharged hits stores today. “Three weeks later, Beyoncé came out with a record called ‘Single Ladies’ and it sort of has a hand and a ring theme behind it.”
The song was recorded for the “Dancing with the Stars” alum’s sixth studio album, due out on Atlantic Records. “No offense to Beyoncé, I think Toni’s is a little bit better in my opinion, but we’ll have to see what the charts do.”
Meanwhile, the “Bleeding Love” songwriter has plans to hit the studio with “American Idol” Jordin Sparks for her sophomore album.

Three years ago today, April 2nd 2006 I went all the way to NYC to see Toni Braxton perform for the first time! I had such a blast, despite using all my last dollars making it possible. To celebrate this I have included these clips that I took from that show.

So though a bit late, I am back with my review. Last night I went to the Lady GaGa show and it was absolutely amazing! Went with my friend Joe and we met up with some other boys, we all just had the greatest time. When we got there the first band was just finishing up, Cinema Bizarre was ok, but nothing too spectacular. Next came on Chester French, they rocked the house! I really enjoyed their performance and the crowd was also loving it. After Chester came out The White Tie Affair, I feel they were not received as well as they could of been, for the pure fact that everybody was ready for the GaGa. They did a great job at covering some popular songs, like Kanye's Heartless, also the lead singer was great eye candy. Ok after three bands, Lady GaGa finally came out at 10:05pm, the who show was just such an adrenaline rush! We couldn't stop dancing, her outfits were amazing, and she has an amazing butt. The back-up dancers were cute, and the set was beautiful. After GaGa left the stage she came back for an encore, she did "Boys, Boys, Boys" and "Pokerface" I was so happy we got to see the show, and the House of Blues is a huge improvement of Avalon. All in all a wonderful night!
