whoa! i just came off of an epic weekend. slow grind was a huge success like always. thanks to everyone that came out! if you haven’t done so already, check out the mix made by dj mursi layne and i for the second installment of her ‘body rollin’ series here.
now….down to business. friday was a super busy day for the music world. everybody and their step-mama dropped something and they are all sosososo good! let’s get to it!
mya – with love
ok, whoa, mya, where have you been? honestly, who cares? what matters is she dropped a 4-song ep that confirms her residence in the land of legends. seriously guys, i listened to “space” nonstop all weekend. alright, i’m lying. i did listen to like 2 j*davey songs, but you get my point. the music is timeless and mya sounds amazing. listen below and purchase on itunes. i am beyond anticipating a full length album.
jojo – #lovejo
jojo is such an undercover legend, it’s crazy. she is one of the best singers of our generation, but crappy deals have kept her in the shadows. save for brandy, jazmine sullivan, fantasia, and christina aguilera, i don’t think anyone could stand in the ring with her. with a new deal sealed, jojo dropped a dope ep to hold us over. the anita baker cover is beautiful. “glory” will have you in you in fetal position in your prayer closet. so glad jojo is back on the scene.
siaira shawn – pieces of love
siaira is an iso14below favorite, so of course i was excited about her new ep. she linked up with producer td camp on this project that was originally the soundtrack for an indie film. the movie was never released, but the music wasn’t going to go down unheard. i still have siara’s “ghost” on daily loop, but i will be taking breaks to vibe out to “pieces of love”.
kanye west – drunk in love (remix)
it is safe to say that happily married rappers are the new black.
