Stream Kehlani’s New Debut Album ‘SWEETSEXYSAVAGE’

kehlani

Today is the perfect day for the young budding songstress! Kehlani drops her long awaited debut album SWEETSEXYSAVAGE and it is every bit of the title that it carries, all 18 tracks.

Known for her previous project You Should Be Here and Hot 100 single “Gangsta” from the Suicide Squad soundtrack, and current singles “Distraction” & “CRZY”, Ms. Parrish delivers a new body of work with standout tracks like: “Keep On”, “Personal”, “Advice”, “Do U Dirty”, “Hold Me By The Heart” and “Thank You”.

A personal favorite of ours, “Too Much” finds the singer along the lines of Aaliyah‘s vocal structure even down to the production reminiscent of Timbaland and Missy Elliot, paying homage to what the 90’s trio contributed to music during the 1990’s to early 2000.

Adding another official banger to our collection, “In My Feelings” runs into the chorus scales of New Edition‘s classic hit song “If It Isn’t Love” just off the heels of their 3-part miniseries The New Edition Story. Genius. Hands down, the mashup is lit.

If you fell out of love with R&B, Kehlani will make you fall in love with it all over again. The album is pure perfection.

You can find ‘SWEETSEXYSAVAGE’ on all streaming platforms.

Take a listen to each track below:

Fly Introduction: Chris Brown and Usher Praises New Dance Duo AYO & TEO

unnamed-6

Hailing from Ann Arbor, Michigan, brothers Ayleo and Mateo Bowles (a.k.a. AYO and TEO) have been dancing and competing at dance since elementary school. Influenced by greats such as Michael Jackson, Usher, Missy Elliot and Chris Brown, the duo quickly developed their own unique brand of dancing and began to upload Youtube videos from their basement and living room.

With zero promotion, and strictly through the power of social media, they began to gain mass appeal by creating and having their “dance challenges” reposted to some of Instagram‘s most popular dance pages. Recognizing this as their main outlet, the younger of the brothers (Teo) created what has become a instant phenomenon and their moniker – “THE REVERSE”. Simply reversing the steps to some of world’s best dance crazes, their Reverse of the “Nae Nae” went viral overnight, on every posted outlet, and received over 150 MILLION VIEWS.

Missy Elliot: “I Don’t Think Diddy Understands The Magnitude of What He Did For Hip-Hop and R&B”, Missy Talks On Pharrell’s “OTHERtone” show via Beats 1 Radio

missy-beats-1-radio

Since hitting the music scene on Gina Thompson‘s 1996 hit-record “The Things You Do” as a solo artist, Virginia native Missy Elliot has carved a cornerstone in music that just can’t be touch, nor fulfilled by anyone; as there is only one Missy Elliot.

Elliot recently paid a visit to Pharrell‘s OTHERtone show on Beats 1 Radio as she discussed her time in the music industry and how Diddy aka Puff Daddy had a big impact on her career, and is responsible for meshing Hip-Hop and R&B together — making it ok to bring the streets to soul.

Just when Missy was about to give up on being an “artist” it was Puff that pushed her into elevating her potential of being a star. History was made when Missy made an appearance on Gina’s record that catapulted her into superstardom.

I don’t even think Puff knows what he did for Hip-Hop. Because he intertwined Hip-Hop and R&B and he made it so that people weren’t intimidated. Even if you had a “Biggie” who was giving street lyrics and coming from a world that they may not know of that’s just straight hood; Puffy found those like 112 that made it felt good. Biggie was still real himself but the music was there. I don’t think her understood the magnitude of that he did.

SFPL’s Artist Spotlight: Meet JOZZY, The Mastermind Behind Artists Monica, Chris Brown, Beyonce & more

sfpl-artist-spotlight-jozzy

MEET THE NEW KID ON THE BLOCK!

Responsible for penning Monica‘s new single “Just Right For Me” and “Discover” on Chris Brown‘s Royalty album, Polow Da Don‘s new protege & Memphis, TN. native (singer/songwriter) JOZZY is being heralded as one of the songwriters that could help save R&B.

At such a young age, Jozzy has covered a lot of ground in the music business in a very short time. Moving to Memphis to Miami to partner with a production protege of Timbaland, she began writing for veteran hit-maker, as well as artists on Kanye West‘s G.O.O.D. Music label.

It was around this time that Jozzy experienced her first, unsolicited time in the spotlight. She was recruited to write for none other than the Queen Bey, Beyonce. So grateful and excited to be in the room, Jozzy posted a phone pic to twitter with the caption: “THIS IS WHO I’M LOOKING AT RIGHT NOW! JAY Z AND BEYONCE #BLESSED TO BE HERE”. Needless to say, tons of Beyonce fans, the #BeeHive swarmed the account and Jozzy was asked to remove the photo; but not before it had a chance to go viral.

The experience was not all bad, as it led to a very pivotal moment in her career when Missy Elliot personally reached out in admiration of Jozzy’s silky 90’s style & her tone.

“MISSY was the real reason for me wanting to pursue my career as an artist” – Jozzy recalls.

Now under the tutelage music powerhouse Polow Da Don, Jozzy is prepping her launch as a solo artist and enhancing her career as a songwriter by writing for not only Chris Brown and Monica, but Usher, Pitbull, Ciara & Fergie, to name a few. Be on the look out for this phenom because she truly does have next!!
