Audrey Valentine – Say Yes

When it gets hot out the first thing people think is vacation, but not Audrey Valentine. The Chicago native has released yet another single, this one is entitled “Say Yes.”

Uptempo and fun, “Say Yes” is a vibe. The joint effort with Richie Wes was produced by Kid Breeze and features a nostalgic Floetry sample.

“Say Yes” has a contemporary sound but and old r’n’b sound. Almost reminiscent of Amerie’s “Why Don’t We Fall In Love,” “Say Yes” is the perfect summertime song.

Miranda6PM is Looking for Mr. Right

It’s finally summer, though the weather in Chicago is having a hard time figuring that out. Never to worry, the musicians have it all figured out and Miranda6PM is one of them. She hot new single “Mr. Right” feels just like summer time Chi.

A joint effort with Audrey Valentine, “Mr. Right” spawns from Miranda6PM’s debut album Before and After 6PM. A far cry from the “City Girls Summer” many thought would be a good idea, this duo is looking for an equal.

Known for her quick wit and smart lyrics, Miranda6PM has a style all her own and “Mr. Right” is proof.

KaJahn Ari is on Cruise Control

As an artist, is there a better way to celebrate your birthday than to release a project? Highly unlikely and that’s exactly what KaJahn Ari did. Yesterday, the Chicago bred songstress debuted Cruise Control.

Cruise Control is seven tracks that every woman can relate to. “B.B.O.T.Y.” and “Pressure” are anthems for any woman feeling herself. “Thoughts” is for every woman who almost let a man knock her off her square and “To Be Nasty” with RicosView is pretty self explanatory.

KaJahn Ari is currently promoting the single “Distraction” and plans to release the visual Friday to kick off the summer.

Audrey Valentine Celebrates with Dear Daddy

There’s an obvious dissonance between the way society treats Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but not Audrey Valentine. A month after celebrating her mother with the release of “Creole Queen” the Chicago born singer celebrates her father with “Dear Daddy.”

“Dear Daddy” is a heartfelt letter penned to the singers father in melodies anyone can appreciate. Valentine spends a little over three minutes thanking her father. Every daddy’s girl on the planet can relate to “Dear Daddy” and every father with a daughter can appreciate it.

T-Roc – The International Party

After years in the spotlight in various capacities, Chicago based entertainer T-Roc, finally, released his debut EP, The International Party.

T-Roc has spent most of his life performing in some way from or fashion, so for him to release The International Party fans are relieved. After experimenting with a plethora of sounds and talents, T-Roc nestled quite nicely in to an EDM/Pop sound. T-Roc’s sound is indicative of his personality: high energy, positive and an all around good time.

The all around entertainer doesn’t quite tap into all of his talents for The International Party, but perhaps that’s for the best. The singer, songwriter, rapper, and dancer only delivered five tracks and to pack all of his many facets into 18 minutes likely would have overwhelmed the world.

For anyone unfamiliar with T-Roc, The International Party is the perfect project to get acquainted with. For long time fans of entertainer and philanthropist: be prepared to get reacquainted with the artist you love.
