It's not quite being asked to perform at next year's Super Bowl , but for an R&B star who's faced no shortage of personal and professional tumult over the last few years, Brandy's ascent to the No. 2 spot on iTunes' album chart Tuesday afternoon probably feels an awful lot like validation. The singer's first solo disc since 2008's coolly received "Human," "Two Eleven" openly invites that kind of speculation. "It seemed I had it all, that's what they thought," Brandy sings in the album's heartfelt opener, " Wildest Dreams . " "But I was peeling like paint on the wall / I had to cover up the hurt," she continues.

Jason Aldean and Jamey Johnson are both country singers who were born in the mid-1970s. Both hail from the Deep South. And both men have new albums out on Tuesday, in each case the anticipated follow-up to a profile-boosting 2010 disc.

A depressed gorilla walks into a bar. Likes the band he finds there playing to an audience of two: the bartender and one passed-out patron. Dances a happy dance, promptly befriends the lead singer and exits one happy ape. If that doesn't sound like much of a punch line, it's because the scenario is no joke — just the whimsical story line for a new music video being shot in Hollywood last week for country singer Jamey Johnson's forthcoming...

When Alabama-born singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson went in to record his latest album, "That Lonesome Song," he had no intention of crafting a collection that would be hailed as one of the best country music efforts of the last year. The studio time was originally conceived as a reunion with old friends, but it also offered Johnson the chance to reclaim a sense of normality -- something he'd lost after a hit single and sudden fame threw his life into chaos.
