“Hot Toddy” And Other Mixed Drinks That Have Inspired Songs


We’ve come a long way from “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” when it comes to name-dropping alcohol in music. Today’s artists get paid big bucks to sing about certain vodkas, or have a name-brand bottle of booze appear in their videos. But then some alcohol-inspired songs seem to be purely organic, created purely as a true tribute to a particular beverage. One of the most recent examples—a
Jay-Z and Usher‘s collaboration, “Hot Toddy.” What is a Hot Toddy, the uninitiated may ask? It is a mix of whiskey, boiling water, honey, lemon, and cinnamon. Sound like the drink needs all the publicity it can get.

Check out other mixed drinks that artists have honored with ballads. Keep reading »

Quotable: Chilli Says “To Hell” With Cheaters!

“I’ll just say this: it wasn’t that I just experienced cheating with Usher because he and I never discussed that in detail. That wasn’t the first time I experienced cheating in a relationship. I’ve never cheated but I don’t know any woman on this planet who hasn’t experienced something like that, whether it’s cheating during the relationship or cheating during a breakup, which some people don’t consider cheating because you’re not technically together but you still haven’t really broken apart. I think women are so afraid to talk about things with guys in fear of him leaving, but if he’s going to be afraid from having a conversation, then the hell with his ass!”

— Chilli from TLC, on ex-boyfriend Usher’s cheating and infidelity in general on her Vibe.com blog. No scrubs, right Chilli?! Keep reading »

Usher Delivers A Hit With “OMG”

While I tend to go for indie pop music, I couldn’t get enough of Usher‘s “Love In This Club” when his 2008 album, Here I Stand, came out. I listened to that song way more than I’d like to admit, and soon I might have to fess up to another Usher obsession. The video for “OMG” off his new record, Raymond v. Raymond is here, and it’s quite catchy — though will anything ever beat the lyrics “It’s going down on aisle three/I’ll bag you like some groceries”? [via Just Jared] Keep reading »
