Out of the 4 tracks my favorite is ‘Boring Shit’. Take a listen to all 4 tracks below:

New Artist: H.E.R…..Who is she though?

For this Monday’s Music Monday, I found a new songstress that caught my ear. I was listening to Apple Music Radio, the R&B station, and bumped into a song titled ‘Losing’ and I couldn’t help, but stop and listen. I love a beautiful voice, but it’s always better with beautifully written lyrics. She opened with,“My ambition is attractive/My aggression isn’t passive/I promise with you/The butterflies in my stomach are active”, and immediately as a young woman I was able to relate. I then decided to listen to her entire EP and I loved it. Of course, you look at the album cover and can’t help but wonder…who is she? That’s when I put my Google skills to work. First, I Googled ‘H.E.R.‘ and an old movie popped up. Than I decided to add ‘Vol.1‘ and there it was. But as I read some of the articles they had no image to attach to the artist. It was like she mysteriously dropped an EP without revealing her actual identity. When google didn’t give me what I wanted …

New Video: When you get your cake and eat it too…Drake’s ‘Child’s Play’

You know like I know, like everybody in the hood know that 80% of men ‘want their cake and eat it too’. I remember hearing this idiomatic proverb as an adolescent and didn’t really get it. But naturally with life’s experiences, I unfortunately have become very familiar with the true meaning. It’s true, men especially want to retain their pretty little piece of cake for the feeling they get just looking at it, but wouldn’t mind eating it for dessert. So, what do they do to meet their needs at the half way point… they pick up multiple women and categorize them. Maybe she is great at fallatio, maybe she can cook her butt off or maybe she’s the perfect arm candy…either way they want it ALL. Drake gives us the perfect visual of having your cake and eating it too with his new video’Child’s Play’. I’m a week late watching this, but it’s 12 minutes long, so you could probably understand the delay. Drake’s love video interest Tyra Banks is the perfect depiction of a …
