When we chose Eric Hutchinson to be one of our “You Oughta Know” artists a few weeks ago, we knew that we were knocked out by the craft that drives his tunes and the verve that he puts into his performances. You can hear what we heard on Rhapsody’s Hutchinson page (download or stream his songs).
What we didn’t know was how deeply the young pup’s music has touched people around the world. That’s why we were thrilled to come across the infomercial clip above. It pretty much explains Hutchinson’s position in the pop firmament. As he says, it’s “an exciting time for music.” Enjoy, and may God bless…

Lil Wayne rhymes “handcuffs” with “pants off” in his f*ck the police opus “Mrs Officer.” He’s not the first guy who’s been hot for a lady in uniform. Bet there’s lots of that lust in the air now that the world is getting a glimpse of Beyonce‘s new “If I Was a Boy” – B looks sweet in her NYPD blues. It’s a message clip, full of implications about stereotyped relationship roles and the friction that’s created when jealousy dominates a domestic scene. It’s also only one of the two videos that Beyonce has dropped today. The other is a dance party dealio, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It).”
Here’s one perspective on the two-sided move by the R&B princess and the alter-egos she likes to express.
