Chloé’s Mad Dog

Few things in life are more upsetting than being sexually frustrated. Chloé so eloquently conveys that sentiment with her latest single “Mad Dog.”

For whatever reason women being openly sexual creatures has been taboo. Even in such a modern society, where there is way more access to sex than there probably should be it’s still raises eyebrows for women to discuss or practice their sexuality freely. Chloé casted caution to the wind and spent more than three minutes ignoring society’s qualms with women discussing sexual topics to deliver “Mad Dog” and it’s worth it.

“Mad Dog” is an ironic combination of perfect vocals, amazing production , and sexually explicit lyrics. The Traydacreator produced track is nothing like anyone would expect. The acoustic introduction prepares listeners for heartfelt lyrics and while women around the world definitely felt the lyrics, it was not in their hearts. Chloé came through to let men know sexual frustration will drive a woman to drink.

“Mad Dog” derives it’s name from a popular fortified wine. The wine is widely known as “Mad Dog 20/20,” however its rightful name is Mogen David.

Chloé – Don’t Fix

Some people always seem to have the best advice for situations that are none of their concern. Chloé teamed up with Joel Q to put those people in their place for her latest release “Don’t Fix.”

Chicago based singer and songwriter, Chloé takes aim at that one person always keeping tabs on a relationship that isn’t their own with “Don’t Fix.” The lyrics reiterate that what may not work for some works for others and it’s no one’s place to judge, no matter how quirky the relationship seems.

Paired perfectly with Joel Q, even more shots are fired at the lonely nosey souls always soliciting their opinions where they’re unwanted. The rapper specifically calls out the single, gold digger struggling to find a relationship of her own and pretending to be satisfied with her situation.

The visual is perfect for the spring time that Chicago is struggling to see. Colorful and creative, filmed in grassy areas “Don’t Fix” is somewhat reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Whimsical and fun, Don’t Fix features parasols, bubbles and a kimono clad Chloé singing in a row boat in the grass.

Kay Soul – Blood In My Veins

Often when a person is highly academic, others complain that they lack soul and creativity. That is not the case for Kay Soul. The vocalist and practicing attorney proves that she is the total package with her new single “Blood In My Veins.”

The Chicago based singer, songwriter, poet and model is everything you never knew you needed. Kay Soul’s unique voice is absolutely captivating and “Blood In My Veins” is the perfect platform for it.

“Blood In My Veins” is deep and soulful. A creative combination of what best described as rock and soul, “Blood In My Veins” is a tale of victory. Despite fear and pain, the result is redemption.

“Blood In My Veins” is the first single from Kay Soul’s upcoming album In My Mind. Kay Soul hopes her album will “encourage others to find beauty in their broken spaces.”

Audrey V Does it Her Way

Sometimes artists feel the need to reinvent themselves. Though their names may change, their talent does not and Audrey V’s fans are grateful for that.

Formerly Audrey Valentine, the Chicago based vocalist made an adjustment to her name before releasing her very empowered new single “My Way.” Audrey V used “My Way” to put the world on notice that not only does she know what she wants, but it is nonnegotiable.

Badass, with a rather familiar melody, “My Way” was produced by Lamar. Assertive and strong, “My Way” is a different sound for Audrey V, but one that suits her just fine. A blend on r’n’b and hip hop, “My Way” is certainly for the ladies.

Eric Bellinger took the stage in true superstar fashion reminding fans that he was single handedly reviving rnb. Bellinger’s set began with “CS3 Intro (Remix).” The song features the entire tour lineup and ironically enough, it’s a hit. Equipped with a wardrobe change and pyrotechnics, Bellinger took fans on a journey through his career by way of a planned set list and some requests from the audience. Fans reminisced with songs like “Or Nah” from 2014’s The Rebirth and enjoyed more recent favorites like “Apple Berry NaNa” and “Moist.”

The night came to a close with a unforgettable performance of “Material” from Bellinger’s November release Cuffing Season 3.

Valentines’s latest visual, “Say Yes,” screams summer in Chicago with beautiful views of the skyline captured in only the ways a Chicagoan could. The video perfect pairing for a song that would make anyone want to fall in love.

Valentine’s incredible vocals matched with early 2000s love song vibes are a hit and Richie Wes adds the icing on the cake. The hip-hop/rnb combination is reminiscent of a simpler time in music.

“Say Yes” look and feel like summer, but it could very well be the catalyst for “Hot Girl Summer” to give way to cuffing season.
