New Artist

I recently stumbled across an upcoming new artist named Ashlee Brie Gillum who simply goes by Brie, she`s best known for her work as actress on Netflix film “Step Sisters” which stars the likes of Naturi Naughton and Sheryl Lee Ralph. She recently released her newest single called “Freak 4 U” which is a sultry number about getting down and nasty with it, she showcases her vocals so beautifully, her tone is very similar to Teairra Mari and LeToya Luckett.

 

Check out the single below and also watch her interview which allows us to get to know her a bit more.

Beyond her looks, Justine Skye is an extremely talented artist but her current album “Ultraviolet” sadly fell under the radar due to the lack of support from her label and poor single choices and weak management.
Skye has been floating around the music scene for years and years without a real musical breakthrough as she delivered some hot tunes but they never take flight but she kept on pushing forward but she needed someone to come in and work on artist development as she has what it takes but there`s always something holding her back from achieving full success . 
“Ultraviolet” feels like it received a mixtape treatment not down to the quality but the way it was handled as the album itself it  was good, with some single worthy tracks like “Heaven“, “Push Ya”, “Lil’ Boy” and “Best For Last” which should`ve been the foundation of the album as they saw her in her elements and also showed so much room for her grow and be the artist she`s destined to be. 
Check it out below and make sure to cop it.

NYC raptress Cardi B recently released her long awaited and highly anticipated debut album “Invasion of Privacy” which is already Gold certified record on arrival and made history by being the fastest selling debut album by a female rapper.
“Invasion of Privacy” is a strong album that we have been waiting to hear for quite sometime now from female rappers because the music scene of lately has been filled with people who prefer to use to gimmicks to draw attention to their music and not allowing their music speak for itself and alot of  people fail to understand that all the rap queens from back in the golden era of music delivered some groundbreaking music that paved way for artists like Cardi B, Rapsody, Angel Haze and many more  to come up and showcase their rawness, sassiness and originality.
 
From day one Cardi has been herself through and through which has made many people relate to her and support her movement as she`s all about women empowerment and expressing herself fully and give zero fucks. When she made history with “Bodak Yellow” alot of people were quick to count her out as a one hit wonder but she had them eat their words as she charted high with her collaboration with Migos “MotorSport”, second single “Bartier Cardi” and also managed to bag a smash hit with the remix of Bruno Mars “Finesse”.

When she dropped this album I was praying hard that would not sound like the mess all over the radio currently, heavy beats and weak lyrics but Cardi B delivered a solid album that has so many layers to it and I love the fact she wanted to give the new generation something that holds so much weight to it and also showcased her roots so beautifully. Opening it with a cold track called “Get Up 10” that sets you up for a good ride as it was so raw and showed that she ain`t playing at all, she means business. She built on the track and throughout the album kept providing some quality tunes that showcased her growth and her confidence, what a great way to kick off her musical career.


Standout tracks:Money Bag“, I Like It”, “Bickenhead”, “I Do”, “She Bad”, “Ring” and “Thru Your Phone”.
 
Rate: 4.5/5

KaMillion has premiered a colourful visual for her hot single “I Heart Banana” that has been on repeat since it dropped and gaining more radio play and is serving as a great introduction to an artist I`ve known for years and years and I loved all her musical offerings as she embodies elements we grew up listening from the likes of Missy Elliott, Lil Kim and Total but with her own refreshing twist.

Brandy

Atlantic recording artist Sir The Baptist recently released his debut album “Saint Or Sinner”, there was one song I could not escape. It’s called “Deliver Me” featuring Grammy-award winning songstress Brandy, who delivered a very raw and heartfelt vocal performance throughout as she sings about a true story of his sister suffering physical abuse at the hands of the church deacon who was also her husband, “I remember my sister Mary would get beat by husband who was the deacon in the church and the whole church knew but no one would say anything. But I remember so clearly she was in the kitchen washing dishes and she would encourage herself, quietly because she didn’t want to start anything she’ll say Lord, deliver me…all he seem to do is, hurt me.”

I love coming across new talent that offers something refreshing to the norm, like these following artists that I`ve been rocking to over the few months. We`ll start with the Brooklyn based trio Thirdstory who came on my radar via YouTube when they posted their stunning cover of Sam Smith`s “I’m Not the Only One”, which has drawn over 2 millions views and went to land them a recording deal with Universal records.
