JOHN DOTE' QUEEN LATIFAH "LAYDOWN" NIGHTBEAT IN LAS VEGAS UPN - SCREEN GEMS NETWORK

 

JOHN DOTE' PROMOTED LAY DOWN BY MEREDITH BROOKS AND QUEEN LATIFAH CAPITOL RECORDS. NIGHTBEAT IN LAS VEGAS UPN - SCREEN GEMS NETWORK 

Roy Lott, who had run Capitol for two years since the exit of label chief Gary Gersh, reached out to Vegas Vee Jay John Dote' to promote the entire Capitol Records genre which included Garth Brooks, Kotton Mouth Kings, Queen Latifah, Geri Halliwell (Spice Girls) and Meridith Brooks from his hit t.v. show "NightBeat In Las Vegas". And as a result, Lott returned to his job as EMI's deputy president for North America.

Dana Elaine Owens (born March 18, 1970), known professionally by her stage name Queen Latifah, is an American rapper, songwriter, singer, actress, model, television producer, record producer, and talk show host. Born in Newark, New Jersey, she signed with Tommy Boy Records in 1989 and released her debut album All Hail the Queen the same year, featuring the hit single "Ladies First". Her second album, Nature of a Sista (1991), was her final album with Tommy Boy Records.

Latifah starred as Khadijah James on the FOX sitcom Living Single, from 1993 to 1998. Her third album Black Reign (1993), spawned the single "U.N.I.T.Y.", which won a Grammy Award and was successful on the Billboard Hot 100. She then starred in the lead role of Set It Off (1996) and released her fourth album, Order in the Court, in 1998, with Motown Records. Latifah gained mainstream success and acclaim with her performance in the film Chicago (2002), receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

Meredith Ann Brooks (born June 12, 1958) is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist best known for her 1997 hit song "Bitch", for which she was nominated for a Grammy Award. 

By 1995 Brooks landed a major label contract with Capitol Records. After three years her first single was finally released, "Bitch", and based on the success of the song she garnered nominations for the 1998 Grammy Awards for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance and Best Rock Song. The single went platinum in Australia.

"Bitch" was also used in the 2000 Nancy Meyers film What Women Want, starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt.

Her album Blurring the Edges achieved platinum sales and peaked at 22 on the Billboard 200 and 5 on the UK Albums Chart. The album was produced by David Ricketts, formerly of David and David (with David Baerwald), and he also played keyboards (among other instruments) on the album. Brooks toured in the US and Europe in 1997 and 1998 to support the album.

On March 30, 1998, in Argentina, she opened for the Rolling Stones. During her set the crowd demanded the Stones and became violent, throwing objects including rocks and tampons at the stage and bruising her eye. She appeared again the next day wearing an Argentine soccer shirt, but the crowd again threw things at her, so after singing "Bitch" she threw the shirt on the ground and walked off.
