Vanessa Hill Sets The Tone For The Glow Up

“A glow happens after the fire has been lit. It’s the evidence the fire has been present,” Vanessa Hill says on “#CantLetGo”, the opening track of her EP, Mood: #Glow.  Her infectious concoction of futuristic sounding soul is definitely nothing short of the type of glow the music industry needs right now. I saw pictures […]

Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliott & Kelly Rowland ‘Get It’

Busta Rhymes’s career in Hip Hop has spanned over 25 years. He has maintained a style all his own and never conformed his unique delivery. Now, he has returned to the studio to work on his long awaited new album (the follow up to 2012’s Year of the Dragon). Busta Rhymes has teamed up with […]

Justin Timberlake: Man Of The Past?

Justin Timberlake has had an interesting couple of weeks, to say the least. He celebrated his 37th birthday, released his fourth studio album, Man Of The Woods, and performed at the Super Bowl.

Cardi B & Bruno Mars Drippin’ In 90s Finesse

Bruno Mars arguably had the biggest success of his career in 2017. He is up for six Grammy Awards this year, including the big three (Song, Record and Album of the Year). Honestly, I’m rooting for him to take home the award for Album of the Year for 24K Magic. So, it only makes sense that […]

The Coolest NERDs On The Block

Pharrell Williams has built up quite the legacy in the music industry. Younger millennials may believe that his super stardom began with his biggest hit to date, “Happy”. However, in the words of LL Cool J, “Don’t call it a comeback”. He’s literally been here for years. I remember my freshman year in college in […]

Jarrett’s New Yesterday Is Here

“Sometimes you gotta say goodbye to reach your full potential”. Jarrett Michael opens up his latest release, Had Yesterday Never Come, with this poignant line. His work ethic is uncanny and he is constantly in the studio cooking up new music. However, he has remained to carve out his own lane, without being influenced by […]
