When I first heard that Coldplay would be the main act for this year’s Superbowl halftime I wasn’t that excited about it, until I heard that they would be accompanied by Beyonce and Bruno Mars. Then my excitement shifted a little, and once Beyonce dropped her her single Formation I really got excited. Coldplay kicked off the show as they performed their singles C “Viva La Vida,” “Paradise,” and “Adventure of a Lifetime.”

Then Bruno Mars channeled his inner MC Hammer as he performed his smash “Uptown Funk,” before the camera switched to Beyonce who performed her new single Formation live for the first time in her Michael Jackson inspired military outfit.

The show concluded as Beyonce and Bruno Mars gave the crowed on hell of a dance-off, the two then joined back up with Martin to sing along to Coldplay’s “Up&Up.”

British producer Naughty Boy kicked off his newest musical era with releasing his Beyoncé-assisted single “Runnin’ (Lose It All)” rumored to feature on his off his upcoming second studio album that will be a follow-up to his 2013 debut “Hotel Cabana”.

The song is a tempo-gathering power ballad that also features new comer Arrow Benjamin who delivered some soulfully-rich vocals that complimented her solid vocals so beautifully as they sang with so much depth and reached lofty heights of emotion, as they sing about not fleeing the battlefield and always fighting for victory “We’ll face it all / If I lose myself, I lose it all”.

 I`ve decided to use this platform to celebrating some of the most impactful females of all time, so every month I`ll be putting post up a post on two females, talking about the impact they have had on me and the music industry and culture.
I want to start off the post celebrating Missy Elliott, who is truly one of the most amazing on the face of the world as she has displayed unshakable commitment to her craft and to her own truth. She fearlessly throws herself into her music allowing her listeners to connect her even more, holding nothing back. Her delivery is so sassy, soulful and raw – showcasing so much passion and personality. She is so fierce and a rare breed .
