VIDEO: The Weeknd Hits The Stage at the Roots Picnic

More video from my time at the Roots Picnic last weekend. It’s easy to forget how you discovered/fell in love with an artist, which is why I really love festivals and concerts. Seeing Abel perform some of these jams brought back my love for The Weeknd. I discovered him back in 2011, a time when his mixtape game was super heavy; House of Balloons was my primary go-to mixtape for at least 6 months. In the clip that follows, The Weeknd performs High For This and Wicked...

A$AP Rocky Performs New Music at The Roots Picnic

Lately I’ve been on a festival kick, checking out various major music festivals and enjoying each experience. Last weekend, I had the privilege of attending the 8th Annual Roots Picnic, held at Penn’s Landing in Philly. The one-day festival drew out thousands to Festival Pier to check out the Legendary Roots Crew and several other artists that assembled to celebrate their artistry and the unity of music. I won’t lie, I’m not built for that type of...

Maroon 5, Common, John Legend, JHud and Lady Gaga perform at the Oscars!

I couldn’t tell you what movies won the most awards (although everytime I flipped the channel back Grand Budapest Hotel was cleaning up!), but the race for song of the year had some interesting entries! These are my favorite moments from last night, what was yours? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!   The first musical performance...

ALBUM REVIEW: Ne-yo – Non-Fiction

Artist: Ne-yo Album: Non-Fiction Release Date: 1.27.15 Ne-yo’s sixth studio album isn’t something to be taken lightly. The R&B star returns with one of his most versatile and impressive projects to date. I gotta admit, I’ve slept on this for a few weeks but I finally took the time to really listen and the amount of tracks I can keep in rotation surprised me. I mean, let’s be honest: Ne-yo lost a lot of us along the way in the name of...

ALBUM REVIEW: Candice Glover – Music Speaks

Artist: Candice Glover Album: Music Speaks Release Date: 2.18.14 American Idol alum Candice Glover showcases the big vocals that made her the 12th season winner on her debut album, Music Speaks (in stores now). Now if you’re reading this and had no idea this album was even out, well, such is the curse of winning a television singing competition. American Idol would probably fare better in ratings (as well as public opinion) if it actually developed it’s winners...

INTERVIEW: Janelle Monae Talks Sexuality, Love, Religion and The Electric Lady!

Janelle Monae has taken flight as the android ambassador from Metropolis with a funky style and an electric style all her own.
