New Music: Sir The Baptist feat. Brandy – “Deliver Me”

[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/3cvdfLHhYc8 service=youtube width=583 height=328 type=iframe]

Rumored to be a pair and quite in love, Sir The Baptist and Brandy link up for what is to be one of the best soulful, holy ghost filled collaborations this year entitled “Deliver Me.”

Sir narrates through the emotional song, delivering a true story about his sister Mary who would get beat by her husband who was a deacon in the church. While giving the heartfelt testimony, Brandy chimes in with amazing riffs and runs that only the “Vocal Bible” herself can provide.

Today, the PK kid dropped his official album Saint or Sinner that features artists like Brandy’s brother, Ray J, Donald Lawrence, Michelle Williams, Keke Wyatt, DC Young Fly and more. On the project, one particular song that stands out is titled “Good Ole Church Girl” featuring The Deacons. On the song, Baptist confesses his love for B-Rocka and compares their relationship to Jay Z and Beyonce while Brandy sings through his verses.

Check out the full song above.

If you’ve been keeping up with Brandy on Instagram, the songstress has also been expressing her love for her new flame.

Fly Interview: Singer Charles Perry Takes The Throne As The New Soul Superhero on SFPL TV [Video]

charles-perry-sfpl-tv

There’s a new Soul, Rock and Funk Maestro in town and he goes by the name of Charles Perry! Holding down the music fork that has been passed on to him through generations, including from his Grandfather, who was a Doo-Wop legend of the The Jive Five, Charles plans to keep the tradition going, delivering what God has gifted him.

Transitioning from Gospel music, the Brooklyn native plans to represent the Forefathers of Rock & Roll: James Brown, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix — the ancestors who have paved the way for African-Americans in the various genres of music. Perry has donned himself “the representation of the new Generation of Rock Artists.”

About what separates himself from other artists: 

There are a lot of people that are gifted. There are people that are talented. And then, there are people that are anointed…i’m anointed. I created a lane for myself, so i’m not worried about my car swerving or my spaceship going into another man’s lane. My lane is different. I sing Soul, Rock, Funk.

The talented singer also talks about possibly doing a Gospel album, if asked — because of his strong love for God. He also, speaks about bouncing back and forth in between genres, and music legends like Luther Vandross that influenced his style.

Mathew Knowles arrived at Power 105.1‘s The Breakfast Club to talk about Destiny’s Child, his start in the music business, Beyonce, a DC Biopic, his new book The DNA of Achievers, seminars and more.

Mathew, later went through his catalogue of artists that he manages from Gospel down to Country genres. He also added, that he has had more #1 records than Beyonce had. [We’re guessing that means past tense?]

Peep the interview to see for your self. At the same time, it’s quite clear Mathew’s mission of the interview was to clear his name on the business side of things, and to let the public know that he is nowhere near being broke. Knowles also once managed rapper Nas during the Illmatic album, he mentions.

However, Mathew does drop a few gems that a lot of artists need to hear.

#CharlestonShooting: Celebs React and Send Their Condolences To Those Lost In The Tragedy

P4C

#PrayForCharleston

As the country mourns the loss of the 9 victims viciously gunned down by Dylann Storm Roof, many celebrities have used social media to cry out their condolences to the families who have lost loved ones and to bring awareness to others.

“I have to do it. You rape our women and you’re taking over our country and you have to go.” Dylann Storm Roof right before he opened fire killing 9 members of the congregation. Roof walked into the church and asked who the pastor was and sat and talked with him for almost an hour before he opened fire and murdered them.

The heinous act is already drawing similarities to infamous killing of four black school girls in a Birmingham Alabama church. That was in 1963, and acts like this are still happening today in 2015.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the city of Charleston and to those personally affected by the tragedy. We hope and pray that this individual is brought to justice swiftly, we will keep you guys updated as more details come in.

Looked stunning in a floral print skirt, white blazer and yellow heels …. we see this floral print trend is taking over the Summer!

Actress, Keisha Knight Pulliam looked amazing in a white button up, shorts and a dope pair of colorful Christian Louboutin heels.

#WeLike

You know Lisa Raye has nothing else to offer except a good white ensemble. I rock with her consistency … I’m positive that she bleeds white blood.

 Michelle Williams Tried it in this metallic gold jumper. Her ode to the solid gold dancers was definitely a #Fail tho

She made up for it in this turquoise number for another Essence event, she washed away her sins with this one.

And Lance Gross is an absolute G for rockin’ the Brooklyn Summer uniform to the events, he’s dead wrong for pairing camo with that flag, but so is half of Brooklyn.
