MUSIC VIDEO: "Let Me Know"-Tamar Braxton


Just a few short weeks after the release of her newest single "Let Me Know," featuring Future, Tamar Braxton has released the official visual for the track!

The sultry video features Tamar in a variety of fly outfits, singing directly to her man! She looks positively stunning in every scene. I love the song, and the video is a classy and simple one. I can't wait to hear more music from her!

Check out the video below, and Let Me Know what you think!

NEW MUSIC: Eclection-Brandy Shanice (FULL ALBUM)

I would designate one day for new music, but I have a lot to share! Right now, I want you to check out R&B singer Brandy Shanice's debut project, Eclection! The album features production from BC of Necronam Beats, O C Thomas, Hall of Fame, and Evil Needle.
Hailing from Houston, Brandy offers up a great first project for listeners!

I love the title "Eclection," for the album because it truly is a collection of diverse sounds and topics. Brandy shares the stories of her past and present vividly on the album. Her vocal talent really does shine, as well as the production. It's a mostly chill album that I could see myself playing as I sat in the house, sipping on wine on relax mode after a long day. It's really cool and smooth like that.

Check out Eclection below!

Bow also loved drawing and writing, eventually transitioning from stories to poems and songs. “My first song was influenced by Omar's 'There's Nothing Like This' and the intro to Mya's 'Fear of Flying' album,” Bow stated.

In The Spotlight: Kenn Retro

Another interview! As always, if you are or know of any upcoming artists, designers, producers, etc., that would like to be featured on The Spotlight, please email me at BrittanyShawnte@gmail.com!

Today, we have hip hop artist Kenn Retro! Hailing from Chicago, Kenn stated that he grew up in a family with a passion for music. “Me and my cousins, when we were young, used to tour the West Side of Chicago performing Jodeci, Shai, Boyz II Men songs,” the rapper said. As he got older, Kenn continue creating music, switching over to a more “Alternative/Urban” sound. He fell in love with hip hop after first hearing A Tribe Called Quest through his uncle. “In 1999, I was inspired to develop my craft of rhyming with the guidance of my uncle, and he has been pushing me ever since,” Kenn said.

In The Spotlight: G5 Elz



Got another spotlight for you all on this wonderful Friday! Expect several within the next few weeks! As always, if you are an upcoming artist, designer, producer, etc., and you are interested in featuring your work on The Spotlight, email me (please allow some time for response)!

Today on the blog, we have G5 Elz! Exposed to music all of his life, the rapper learned and loved the art of rhyming. From Dr. Seuss books to watching rappers like The Notorious BIG, Jay Z and Nas, he quickly caught on to rapping. “By the time I was 8 years old, I began writing my own rhymes in school, preferably math class,” G5 joked. “Then it was always rapping in front of the TV like I was whatever rapper in the video with the remote in my hand.”

Hailing from Queens and living in NYC, G5 Elz recognizes that his environment has had a great deal of influence over his music. “My environment inspires everything because I’m seeing and hearing noises everyday then I incorporate that into my rhymes,” the rapper acknowledged. Though he always knew that creating music was his life’s purpose, he began to take his music seriously after his grandmother passed away in 2011. “I stepped my game up to another level and started molding solid projects, performing, and profiting.”

NEW MUSIC: "Blue Neon"-Soquelle

A little something different for your eardrums right now! Here's is a track from electronic duo Soquelle entitled "Blue Neon." The duo, comprised of Anastasia Gera (vocals, songwriting) & Mark Shvartsman (synthesizers, drum machines, saxophone, guitar), create this chill, futuristic track described by the group as "the late night streets of New York ’70s, the temptation to put the day behind you and saturate within the glow of fluorescent entrance-ways."

Check out the track below!

Soquelle is currently finishing up their debut album produced with Dan the Automator, which is scheduled for release in early 2015. You can hear more from them on SoundCloud, and connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
