I’m back with a lil R&B catch up!

Its not exactly new but its worthy of blogging anyway, here’s the visuals for J Cole and Drakes ladies favourite banger ‘In The Morning’. It dropped on Valentines Day (well, the day after..) and was shot whilst on tour in Paris, featuring a cameo from Norwegian model & singer, Alexandra Joner.
Some expected more, but as far as I’m concerned J Cole could have shot it in his bathroom and I would have been happy!
The visuals are directed by the one and only Hype Williams and will induce epileptic fits, even to those without the condition. It should SERIOUSLY carry a warning! Hype is behind some epic videos, such as The Notorious B.I.G. – One More Chance, Busta Rhymes – Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See and Kelis – Caught Out There.
The video has cameos from Rihanna and Kid Cudi, doesn’t feature Fergies MIA inspired verse but includes vocals from Charlie Wilson, John Legend, Tony Williams, Alicia Keys, La Roux, The Dream, Ryan Leslie, Alvin Fields and Ken Lewis.
I absolutely love this man, his beautifully soulful voice, his swag, and even his super white teeth. This is the video for ‘Bodies’ off his album ‘Lady Killer’, directed and put together by Mikael Colombu Films, featuring Cee Lo Green, Kerry Washington, Janelle Monae, and Karl Lagerfeld. Its dark, its interesting and narrates a story, all be it a bit odd.
I’m personally pleased he won Best International Male at this years Brit Awards, I’m just surprised Kanye didnt rush the stage screaming he deserved to win as he’s the greatest international male of all time..
It’s the next one from Last Train To Paris and it’s called ‘I Hate That You Love Me’.
A lot of people around me carry strong feelings for this album (like my friend Chinners who would probably burst into my house and burn down my CD collection if I said anything bad about this track), but they have a right to – from ‘Hello Good Morning’ to the remix to ‘Coming Home’, it’s surprisingly good.
This one’s produced by Rodney Jerkins with other cuts coming from the likes of Swizz Beatz, Polow da Don, Danja, Alex da Kid and Mario Winans.
The jagged up player is for a reason. The video leaked a few days ago but has since been removed from Youtube.

P.S. Remember when Diddy tried to make Aubrey and D.Woods look crazy for cussing about Dawn recording outside the group?
