This Washington DC Hip Hop soulstress has delivered one of my favourite projects of the year. ‘Shea Butter Baby’ is the debut album from Ari delivering the that Dreamville flavour all over the 12 track set. Cuts like ‘Whipped Cream’, ‘New Apartment’ & ‘Facetime’ have been regular features on my radio show and after interviewing the lady herself, she has further raised the levels of endearment with her approach to singing, songwriting, making music and life. Check the full interview on my mixcloud page! In the meantime…Check out the video to the new single and enjoy!!
Grammy Award-winning rapper Common lets of beauty of a new single called “HER Love” featuring Daniel Caesar and special guest Dwele, including an unreleased beat from J Dilla.

Been following this kids work for a minute after he put out a cool track ‘How I Feel’ last year he’s finally dropped his debut video via Link Up TV called ‘Relocate’
This is most definitely the full phatness!!
Watch this space…Delo is here!
I’ve developed into a BIG fan of this guy and i must say, for a pleasant change, a major label (RCA) seems to have got it right with the way they’ve built up an Soul / R&B artists output.
Anyhow let’s not speak to soon. Bottom line is Lucky Daye is a talent i’m interseted in championing and the album ‘Painted’ is a fantastic debut outing. After spinning ‘Karma’, and ‘Real Games’ from the EP II, my favourite album cut is definitely ‘Extra’. However there is no video for that presently so i wanted to share another great video cut from the debut set.
Check the album ‘PAINTED’ and in the meantime enjoy this!
So, about the other night, I attended the Mariah Carey Caution World Tour at Royal Albert Hall, and it was EPIC. With flawless vocals, six dress changes and makeup touch-ups in between songs, Ms Carey’s performance was perfection. She pleased everyone with some throwback hits to new music including; ‘Touch My Body’, ‘A No No’, ‘Fantasy’ ‘Hero’ and ‘We Belong Together’, to name a few, she catered to us all.
One of the highlights of the night was the #JusticeForGlitter medley, which included; ‘Never Too Far’, ‘Last Night a DJ Saved My Life’, ‘Loverboy’ and ‘Didn’t Mean to Turn You On’. This segment was added to her set list after fans back in 2018 made her ‘Glitter’ album reach No 1. on iTunes. Her free spirit and high energy oozed over to the audience and had us all singing along.
This was the first time seeing the living legend live, and I was highly impressed with the show, and she delivered.
Etta Bond is definitely on my page with this wonderful set of heartfelt songs from her two albums released simultaneously. Both oozing with a wholelottasoul.
‘He’s [not] Mine’ and ‘He’s Mine’ are albums you need in your life if you’re remotely into Soul / R&B so go get it.
In the meantime..Enjoy this!!
