'The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,' a dramatic film featuring Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks and Anthony Mackie in addition to a few others, is set to open in select theaters on Oct. 11. The trailer shows just how dramatic circumstances are in the flick.
New school wins over the old in last week's R&B Sound Off when Jordin Sparks beat funk, dance veterans Earth, Wind & Fire. Sparks' bubbly 'Skipping a Beat' took 58.6 percent of the votes while Earth, Wind & Fire took 41.4 percent.
It looks like Trey Songz has done it. For the fourth week in a row, the R&B crooner has come out on top in TheDrop.fm's R&B Sound Off. Trey's 'Sensational' took 65.12 percent of the vote while R. Kelly's 'My Story' only received 34.88 percent of the vote. Last week's win means that Songz becomes the next artist to enter the R&B Sound Off Hall of Fame.
