Check out Jill Scott’s latest video for “So In love” featuring Anthony Hamilton. This song is the first single off her upcoming album Light of the Sun which I’m dying to get a copy of so my life will be complete. This duo is so sweet and romantic, makes wish I could fall in love. Jill Scott looking amazing as always and I’m starting to think she’s my celebrity twin (Don’t judge me) lol. . .
Check out the official video for Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)”. She never seems to disappoint when it comes to the visual and entertainment aspect of her talent.
Check out Baltimore native female rapper Rye Rye in her video for “Hardcore Girls”. I definitely seen her before on some projects with M.I.A. The song is so funky and fun and reminds me of spring. Plus, I really wish I could rock black lipstick with that much swag.
Sha Stimlu shares a song and visual dedicated to his affirmation for black woman. I like how he admits that he loves his women just the way they are. We really do try so hard to cover up whats real inside. It’s part of being a women, it’s unjustifiable obstacles that we will always go through. However, I’m glad he is reaching out representing brothas out there that aren’t caught up in our own insecurities of our beauty. This kind of music that appreciates women and sends uplifting messages is what I really like. Now if only we could really just wake and go. lol
In his own words:

I’m not dissing weaves or wigs, I’m just afraid the next generation may be affected by plastic surgery and falsities. Speak to the kids.
So, Veuillez Veiler Sur vos Reves or in other words “Keep Your Dream” is the latest release from Les Nubians. I like the visual for this song, cool vibe.
When I discovered Tamar-Kali on Afropunk.com I knew she would be an alternative sound that I could agree with. Check out the visual for “Pearl” feat. Jean Grae put together by a whole gang of fabulous people. You can check out the feature I did on her months ago HERE
Check out the other half of the broken up duo Floetry, with “Let Me” as The Floacist brings a visual to her anticipated single debut. Um, I’m not feeling it and I’m high confused with the man thong but that’s just me. What do you think?? “Let Me” can be found on the new album “Floetic Soul” on Shanachie Entertainment.
