I usually review the best and worst moments of award shows but that format has become incredibly dull. So, I will use Trini Trent TV to address the glaring issues that arose from the 2014 Grammy Awards as they relate to major problems affecting the music industry. Naturally, I’m starting with Beyonce’s performance.
It’s a new year and while everybody is busy making resolutions they will likely break in the coming months, there are then artists who require such a major change. These are the struggling acts who are in dire need of reinvention.
Jay-Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail has been a commercial success and although he failed to complete his quest to force the entire music industry to adopt his new rules, he scored an interesting victory with the title track. With the new video for the song featuring Justin Timberlake now hot on the airwaves, let’s review […]

Everything Jay-Z does is blown out of proportion and heralded as larger than life, mainly because of the media machine that supports his work. For example, the Hip-Hop icon teamed with HBO for the release of his new video for “Picasso Baby”, which he termed as “a performance art film.”
All records, no matter how impressive, are meant to be broken. Such is the case even with Mariah Carey and her longstanding position as the artist with the biggest radio hit in history. Who dares to challenge the diva of all divas? The man of the hour, Robin Thicke.
There are still many years to go before the end of the 2010-2019 decade but those that have already passed have been action-packed with releases by some of the biggest names in music. From Adele to Lady Gaga and Rihanna, the last 3 and a half years saw a new generation of Pop stars dominate […]
