Netflix, The Video

What’s Valentine’s Day without a little music? Feel free to thank Chimeka for that. The multitalented performer premiered the video for her single “Netflix” today.

Both sultry and sexy, the song is perfect for Valentine’s Day. The visual comes six months after the single’s release, however it is right on time.

Starring Chimeka, “Netflix” documents what appears to be the perfect romance with a twist. The lyrically apt beauty also shares a scene with a unicorn, but it’s Chimeka what did you expect?

Samcin was the creative genius behind it all and it was captured by the lense of Phil Jordan. It’s safe to say as a pair they captured the rapper, singer, songwriter and unicorn at her best.

Grab a lighter and your lover and check out “Netflix”:

Kehlani Did It Again

It’s always a good day for an acoustic record and when it comes from Kehlani it’s even better. With that being said, today was a good day due to the premier of the Oakland songbird’s latest “Again.”

Acoustic and unmixed, Kehlani proves that her voice and lyrics are capable of standing on their own. Colorfully written with the imagery of Kehlani could create, “Again” is art for the ears. Though she doesn’t need it the groundwork for the track was laid by Geoffro, who is also responsible for producing “Honey.”

Corey Ether Gets Petty

Just last week singer/songwriter, rapper and producer Corey Ether debuted the visual for his latest single “Petty.” An ode to childish and outright outlandish behavior, “Petty” is certainly unique.

A joint effort from Corey Ether, UKnowCoby and KelzFreeAgent, “Petty” is more than four and a half minutes of documented bad behavior. The song was produced by Corey Ether and may very well be proof that while talented Corey Ether could use a lesson in moral behavior.

Derrick Donaldson Doesn’t Want To Dance

According to Derrick Donaldson’s Facebook biography he’s a husband, musician, songwriter, producer, Jesus’s homeboy and a lover of burgers. While that covers a lot, it doesn’t mention the fact that he one of Chicago’s up and coming neo-soul artists and he’s got a sound all his own.

In a time where it seems hip hop and RnB is ruling the city, Chicago based musician Derrick Donaldson is certainly standing out in the crowd. His debut single “I Don’t Wanna Dance” is evident of not only is individuality, but his talent as well.

Listen to I Don’t Wanna Dance now.

Chris Brown’s Heartbreak on a Full Moon

Years in the making, Chris Brown finally released his tenth studio album Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

It has undoubtedly been a long time coming, the 28 year old singer has been releasing singles from Heartbreak on a Full Moon for more than a year. Prior to midnight’s digital release, Chris Brown had already released enough songs to complete an album, but that pails in comparison to 45 tracks that comprise Heartbreak on a Full Moon.

The multitalented Virginia native left nothing to be desired with this album, covering every quintessential Chris Brown sound and adding some new ones. More than two and a half hours long, Chris Brown took the time to remind the world why he is Chris Brown. The feature credits for this album look more like the V.I.P list for a party and the production credits follow suit.

Chris Brown received ten platinum plaques in 2017, exclusive of Heartbreak on a Full Moon and took to social media encouraging his fans to make it debut at number one. Apparently Team Breezy is not to be doubted, as Heartbreak on a Full Moon was number one on ITunes preordered albums and as of this morning, the most downloaded album, beating out Kelly Clarkson.

Heartbreak on a Full Moon is without question Chris Brown’s best and most versatile album yet. It’s available on all media streaming platforms today and hard copies will be available Friday, November 3.

Jhene Aiko Takes Fans On A Trip

Jhene Aiko can do no wrong, so why not put out an album with no warning? The California born beauty debuted Trip today.

The 22 track offering, is nearly an hour and a half long with a star studded cast and indescribable vibes. Jhene Aiko recruited Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, 90’s RnB icon Brandy, Big Sean and her own daughter, Namiko Love, to lend their talents to this effort.

Trip could not be befittingly titled as the album is a high all its own. Heavy baselines and bells dance through the album beneath lyrics about love and life situations. Somewhere between a hippy and a hipster, Jhene Aiko creates a trip that can be appreciated no matter what fans’ drug of choice is.
