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.
Jennifer Hudson Is In Fear For Her Life, Gets Order Of Protection Against Ex-Fiancé David Otunga
Jennifer Hudson has been granted a protective order against her former fiancé, David Otunga.
Apparently, after 10 years together, Jennifer and David broke-up for several months ago. However, things turned extremely sour while the pair were trying to work out a custody situation for their 8-year-old son, David Jr. According to the protection order, Jennifer claims the former wrestler exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.” She also says, “I am now living in fear of further action David might take.”
After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.
Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
