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!!

SFPL Music: Monica feat. Missy Elliot & Laiyah – “Code Red”, Album Cover & Track Listing Revealed

monica-code-red

Monica and Missy Elliot are back in collab-action with the new title track Code Red, which is Monica long-awaited album set to drop on Dec. 18th. The dance track also features Monica’s baby girl Laiyah, sounding just adorable as she looks!

The Polow Da Don-produced song touches on the current state of music that consistently plays on the radio, artists that are trying to crossover, and record labels plummeting, which overall; music no longer has any substance according to Monica and Missy. On that note, just turn the radio off, both exclaims.

Missy’s lyrics are as follows:

I does what I does, do what I do
Your hustle the same to me, here’s something new
We tired of that junk that you sing in the booth
You know we the truth, let me give you this proof
Call 911, better ring the alarm
When this come on they be droppin’ them bombs
We tired of hearin’ them same old five songs
Man I’ve just been wanting to turn that ish off

Monica: 

I swear the game might be over
Somebody give them some Folger’s
Cause you can’t be sleepin’ on Mono
And you can’t see me with no photo
I’m tryna change up the world
I’m focused on my baby girl
And even though she only one
She know you ain’t talkin’ about nothin’

Fly Interview: Singer JR Castro Talks Timbaland, New Music & Performs “Love You Down” for SFPL TV

JR-Castro-sfpl-tv

Singer/Songwriter JR Castro has been creating quite a buzz for himself with his new single/visual “Get Home” featuring Kid Ink & Quavo (of Migos). The official video to the hit song is not only climbing the music charts, but has now reached over 1 million views on Vevo in a matter of 3 weeks. The song was inspired by Faith Evans‘ 1995 cut “Soon As I Get Home”, which you can hear the classic lyrics written by Sean “Puffy” Combs, Carl Thomas and Faith herself, throughout the chorus of the song. Castro also currently has a collaborative tune with Sevyn Streeter & YG entitled “That Shit Go (Up-Down), produced by Polow Da Don.

Recently, the up and coming Las Vegas talent stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s very own, SFPL TV to talk about his upcoming debut EP You Executive Produced by Timbaland, his forthcoming mixtape Songs You Were Made To, wanting to work with Quincy Jones, Kehlani and Meelah (formally of 702) and also speaks on the phrase “R&B is dead,” which seems to be a verbal term that is used due to the disappointment of Soul music. In the midst of the interview, Castro also performed the Ready For The World classic, “Love You Down” LIVE.

About Timbaland he says: 

Ah man, it was an outer-earth experience man…he’s an alien! That’s what I call him! He’s great, he’s inspiring, and he just really knows how to really elevate one’s prospective, especially on their approach to music.

About the term “R&B Is Dead”:

I think R&B is confused. I don’t think it’s dead, I just think it’s confused. I think that because Hip-Hop is so dominant that the R&B guys are trying to figure out a way…(as he pause, sighs and thinks of the right words to say)…….It’s like this, I feel like R&B now is “Rap-Melod'” — it’s rap lyrics sung over R&B melodies. You know what I mean? Which, takes away from the essence of R&B. The true core of R&B. That’s what I feel about it — I just think it’s confused.

veronica-vega-pay-me

Miami based recording artist, Veronica Vega, ushers forth the official video to her latest single “Pay Me”, an up-tempo club fused mix produced by Polow Da Don and released under Zone 4, Inc. 

veronica-vega-pay-me

Veronica, co-signed as the musical protege to hip-hop superstar Pitbull, pushes the envelope in her latest visual that features a mash up of provocative dance ensembles, an even sexier wardrobe and a mouthful of lyrics that need no filter. Since the fellas get away with risky lyrics all the time, Veronica decides to flip the switch and give the ladies a chance to feel empowered, and speak their mind.

Veronica quotes:

“I’m not a rebel. I’m a believer in freedom all the way across the board. Rules for all, or rules for no one. That’s what this song means to me. This is a song and video that’s ambitious and powerful and that’s what the women of this generation represent in my opinion. I refuse to be scared of judgment.”
