Barbee – “Whoa” [New Video]

The Caribbean starlet known as Barbee has been a staple on the dancehall scene internationally, collaborating with the likes of Beenie Man, Junior Kelly and even Trina.

Now, she is primed and ready to bring her talents to the states. Having partnered up with Hip Hop mogul Master P, the sky is the limit for the 6 foot tall singer/model.

Her new single “Whoa,” is a reggae infused pop record produced by platinum production duo Rock City. The track lifts its sample from the seminal reggae tune “Bam Bam” by Sister Nancy, which was immortalized the 1998 Hype Williams film Belly. For the video, Barbee takes things a step further, recreating classic scenes from the film including the now classic Black Light Scene.

New Video: Master P’s Daughter Cymphonique “Soldier Girl”

Looks like Willow has a sparked some attention from a few celeb kiddies…

Remember some time ago we featured Master P’s daughter CYMPHONIQUE‘s  “Little Miss Swaggar” here on SFPL about a year ago? Well, now she has resurfaced with a new viral video titled “Soldier Girl”. I am not sure why it took so long for another video to present itself, but I guess the sudden appearance of Willow and the music leak spark another video from the talented 14 year old.

From the plethora of videos on YouTube, Cymphonique has been performing with a group called The Fabulous Girls. The group has a pretty large fan base and has been performing around the world via Radio Disney. Cymphonique’s hit single “Butterflies” topped the Disney charts naming her the Next Big Thing via Radio Disney.

Hopefully, Cymphonique is getting her music priorities in tact and has a heavy team behind her that knows exactly what they are doing. The time is now to make a move and to make her mark in the industry.

5 RANDOM THOUGHTS (WEEKEND WRAP UP EDITION)…

Cassie was spotted on the set of Chris Brown’s new video as the leading lady. I say Yes, if you don’t have Rihanna anymore get another beautiful, fashionable–> “songstress”.

I do need Cassie to lead her own Video, like, sometime soon.

Just a though. *Kanye Shrug*

And in the same weekend Kelly was spotted on the set of 50’s new Video as his leading Lady.

Smell a pattern?

Can Ashanti get some shine?

She’s free.

#Imjustsaying

TLC Reunited over the weekend for the Justin Timberlake’s and Friends Concert. I’d really like their performances to be limited to Special Events as such. The death of a member makes it painful to watch, it’s a huge difference then just replacing a living group member, no?
