Keith Sweat released Playing for Keeps, his 13th studio album, on Oct. 26 via Red Music. The very next day, the Harlem soul singer was at MGM National Harbor for a show, and Chris Castillo got some pix.
Grammy award-winning R&B singer-songwriter Maxwell made a recent stop at The Theater at MGM National Harbor as part of the 50 Intimate Nights Live Tour. It has been over 20 years since the release of his debut album, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite (1996), but the silky soul singer showed that he’s still got it!
Maxwell, along with artists like Erykah Badu and D’Angelo, have been credited as the originators of neo-soul. The genre that dominated the late ‘90s and early aughts incorporated jazz, funk, and hip-hop into a contemporary R&B sound.
88rising isn’t a band — it’s a company! But in the 88 Degrees and Rising Tour at MGM National Harbor on Oct. 9, he media, marketing, and record firm heralds its hot mix of artists, including Joji, NIKI, Rich Brian, Higher Brothers, and others.
With a sparkle in her eyes and brilliance in her voice, Pat Benatar was all fired up at MGM National Harbor on Tuesday, as she and husband Neil Giraldo rocked through a smashing catalog of thundering anthems and hushed serenades.
Pat Benatar returned to Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart after an absence of 16 years in November with “Dancing Through the Wreckage,” a strong new song she recorded for Served Like a Girl, a documentary about female veterans returning to the United States after their military service.
It really is a great song, but we fully realize that you wanna hear all of the Benatar classics too — powerful and liberating numbers like “Love Is a Battlefield,” “Invincible,” and “We Belong.” Well, you can if you buy one of the few remaining tickets for a performance by Pat and Neil Giraldo at MGM National Harbor on Tuesday, July 24!
The sexual. The sensual. The political. The empowerment. Jilly from Philly — you know her as R&B veteran Jill Scott — gave MGM National Harbor a potent dose of all four experiences on Saturday.
In the second half of her show at MGM National Harbor on Friday, Britney Spears grinds to a halt for a mock conversation with one of her dancers.
“Stop the show?” Britney asked. “We need to find a hot guy to dance with us?”
As it turned out, Team Britney already had a game volunteer named “Scott” lined up aside the stage, and he would soon provide some comic relief as a fetish object during a flashy performance of “Freakshow” from Britney’s 2007 album, Blackout.
