For many of us, 2016 could be described as disruptive, chaotic, unpredictable or melancholic. For Maxwell, however, 2016 has been the year of resurgence. The Brooklyn-born crooner is currently wrapping up a world tour with Mary J. Blige, promoting a critically acclaimed new album and riding the wave of his 13th Grammy nomination. The golden nod is for the singer’s summer single, “Lake By the Ocean.” The track, featured on his blackSUMMERS’night album, is up for Best R&B song.

With the nomination, Maxwell continues to further his place among soul music’s elite. With a career that spans over two decades, he’s also proven a rare talent with the sort of poise and endurance needed for extended relevance in a fickle industry. While most artists see their work and fan base decline over the years, Maxwell’s Bordeaux-like aging has cultivated a symbiotic relationship with his followers.

With that in mind, we’re revisiting the many wonders Maxwell has blessed us with over the years — tunes recognized for their artistry by The Recording Academy, but also by certain parents for their newborns and, depending on when they boarded the Maxwell train, teenagers.

Maxwell’s “Whenever Wherever Whatever” was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance back in 1998.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

Storm Reid – Getty Images

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
