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.

G. Mitch has Racks in the Middle

It’s becoming apparent that no one can do a remix quite like G. Mitch. While the world is still reeling from the loss of Nipsey Hussle, the singer paid homage with his own “Racks in the Middle” freestyle.

The Chicago based singer, put an r’n’b spin on “Racks in the Middle” that anyone could appreciate. G.Mitch’s freestyle is a quick tale of having to pull one’s self up and celebratory way to live after doing so. In under two minutes G. Mitch goes from being down bad to being on a pedestal, in a come up anyone could be proud of.

He reminds fans that he’s still working and new music is on its way. However “Racks in the Middle” should hold them over for now.

Slitta’s Story Tellers

Last night Slitta gave fans insight to his music never previously experienced in an effort to help people catch up on all the music he has delivered, New Regime Agency in conjunction with D1CMG presented Slitta’s Story Tellers.

Slitta wears many hats and it’s easy for one to be confused by all that he does. Overnight, in a small room at 35th Street Studios among some of Chicago’s most notable, Slitta unpacked his process, motivation, and the roles he played in creating the four projects he has released since March of 2018.

Hosted by Shawn Grant and DJ’d by Marie Tha DJ, Slitta’s Story Tellers was a unique event and just was Chicago needed. I’m a setting very reminiscent of MTV’s Unplugged, Slitta combined high energy, mimosa-infused performances with intimate interviews for a night to remember.

Slitta opened by performing songs from his Who Made The Beat playlist, the project that started it all. Already a well- known producer and songwriter, Who Made The Beat was Slitta’s introduction to the world as a D1CMG artist. The nine track effort, featured YouTube beats the embodied the vibes of popular artists.

He followed with performances and explanations of tracks from his debut album Pink & Red. Slitta described the album, that he admittedly wanted to be entirely self produced as him painting his own picture of r’n’b. Though, he felt compelled to utilize beats created by other producers, Slitta still delivered an album that only he could. The performance reinstilled just that. A fan favorite, “Sex on Fire” was the last song added to Pink & Red and Slitta’s favorite, as well.

More Red seemed to be the most important album of the evening. Slitta performed a number of songs from the album released in January and opened up about his inspiration. “Coach Fatality, he the G.O.A.T,” Slitta explained. “He was my motivation behind this project. He’s the best producer ever.”

Slitta didn’t let his admiration for the work of his fellow 80Apes producer dominate his interview. He unpacked “Finesse Magician” a phrase Slitta coined himself, emphasized the importance of uniting and creating positive activities to save the youth from “Englewood Blues,” and celebrated that his cousin and motivation for “Dirty Game” would be home soon.

More Red was followed by its successor More Pink. Slitta admired that it was the source of much panic, as he only had a months to create it. Slitta performed the self-produced “Obsession.” Slightly disappointed, Slitta felt he had to perform “What Lovers Do.” The Song unfortunately wasn’t made in time to appeal on his More Pink album. It’s not only one of Slitta’s favorites, but a fan favorite as well and inspired word for word recitation and much dancing from the crowd.

Slitta ended the night with the previously unreleased, “Apeshit” which is undoubtedly a hit as well.

All and all Slitta’s Storytellers was an event that won’t soon be forgotten.
