Chimeka Celebrates Champagne Showers

If there’s an artist in Chicago working harder than Chimeka please point them out. The multitalented artist just released her latest visual, “Champagne Showers,” and it could not be better.

Subtitles, firearms and lots of money would be a very accurate description of the Harvey native’s latest. Direction of the mini movie was a joint effort between the unicorn herself and Stripmall, which just goes to show Chimeka really can do it all.

Speaking of doing it all, earlier this week Chimeka held a private interactive viewing experience called “Pizza and Movie.” The creative experience, which of course was a hit, just goes to show hard work, talent and creativity are all you really need to put your city on the map.

BJ The Chicago Kid – The Opening Ceremony

Overnight, the world received a little r’n’b, Chicago style. At midnight, BJ The Chicago Kid debuted his latest release The Opening Ceremony.

Emphasis on a little r’n’b, The Opening Ceremony is only three tracks long. But not to worry those three tracks are 12 minutes of the most soul the music industry has had in a long time. Reminding the world exactly why BJ The Chicago Kid belongs at Motown Records.

A whole lot of love, in the physical and emotional sense, over melodies only the way BJ The Chicago Kid could deliver is the best way to describe The Opening Ceremony. Engaging all the way through, though fans would have appreciated more, that 12 minutes is just enough to get them through.

Ravyn Lenae – 4 Leaf Clover

Slumber parties, muscle cars and pool halls, Ravyn Lenae’s “4 Leaf Clover” visual is an eccentric blast from the past.

Making its debut this afternoon “4 Leaf Clover” is a taste a spring with some old school inspiration. While the song spawns from her February EP entitled Crush, the video could not have come at a better time. The weather in Ravyn Lenae’s hometown of Chicago is starting to feeling like “I never said we were together” and that’s pretty much the narrative.

While it seems the red haired singer’s latest video was inspired by the 50’s, and could not have been more perfectly themed, Ravyn Lenae’s talent is completely 2018.

Tammy Rivera Delivers Fate

At midnight, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Star Tammy Rivera released her debut EP, Fate, putting the world in its feelings.

Producer by iconic RnB producer Rico Love, Fate chronicles the highs and lows of relationships. The combination of Rivera’s angelic voice, very public relationship and the musical genius is sure to put the entrepreneur on the map.

The seven track effort, though much too short, leaves nothing to be desired. An effective combination of uptempo tracks and ballads, Rivera’s talent shines through effortlessly.
