In this edition of ‘Last Night In NYC’, TGI Fridays takes over NY’s Studio 450 for their latest summer installation of ‘Red Hot Summer of Music’.
Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, actor and philanthropist NE-YO has announced an intimate six-city fan appreciation experience entitled “A Night with NE-YO,” which kicked-off May 7th in Chicago in support of his latest Motown Records release, R.E.D. which includes the latest single “Should be You” feat. Fabolous and Diddy.
Last night in NYC, Ne-Yo, Compound Ent., Lenny S. and Columbia Records officially introduced RaVaughn to the world at an event at the Norwood Club. The intimate invite only event included an interesting guest list of label execs., top writers, friends, and family.
Friday Evening, SFPL was cordially invited by Compound Entertainment to “Cocktails With Compound.” The dinner was an introduction to the ladies of Compound Entertainment: Adrienne Bailon, Loren Allred & Ravaughn. Mega producer and artist, Ne-Yo was on hand to introduce the ladies and give you an exclusive first taste of his new spirit Malibu Red.
The signature cocktail was filled with a boisterous flavor of coconut and silver tequila.
The dinner took place @ Philippe Chow, one of New York’s popular restaurants and invitees enjoyed the best appetizers they had to offer including their popular Chicken Satay glazed in peanut sauce. The Cocktail’s continued to flow as Ne-Yo introduced the ladies and promoted his current film ‘Red Tails‘ which he invited us all to attend after dinner, complimentary of the head of compound entertainment.
Notables on hand for the dinner included; Vibe Magazine, Global Grind, The Urban Daily, Hello Beautiful, Singer’s Room, Dr. Jays.com, Roc4Life and Pynk Magazine just to name a few.
We had a chance to sit and chat with the young ladies and from the looks of things, they have a lot in store for the music industry and world to hear.
From 3LW, Cheetah Girls, VJ’ing via MTV and The Kardashians, Adrienne Bailon is steadily at work. Gearing up for a new reality show on the Style Network starring herself along with Julissa Bermudez (BET), the latin bombshell expressed her love for music and advised us that she is currently working on new material with Ne-Yo. She doesn’t have a label home at the moment but there are offers on the table, in which she has to decided very soon, but wants it to be the right decision. Adrienne is also working on her very own clothing line, which will be mixed with bold colors, patterns and precise lining.
And what can we say about the soultry, beautiful Ravaughn! She comes to us with many years of musical experience where she found herself singing BV’s for the likes of; Nicki Minaj, Michelle Williams, Keri Hilson, Brandy and even a plethora demo material for the same artists listed and more. In the midst, of her major music workload she met Ne-Yo and after that it was history in the making. Ravaughn became apart of the Compound family. Ravaughn is also classically trained on the piano, which adds to her God given talent. She is definitely one of our favorites! So humble!
Peep Ravaughn’s current buzz single titled “Same Ol’ BS” ! Trust us, it’s dope!
We didn’t get a chance to catch up with pop/soul artist Loren Allred, but from what Ne-Yo explained, she is quite amazing!
The three young ladies will be bringing new music to the forefront very soon, so please stay tuned to SFPL for more info!
