Some great vocals here from Phonte, that features Carlitta Durand on “Gonna Be A Beautiful Night”. It’s not often that you get two amazing talents on one track. Can’t wait to hear some more stuff in the near future…
Definitely check out the new Frank Ocean video for “Pyramids”. It’s probably going to be one of the best directed videos this year with some of the best effects and editing out there. Keep watching, because you’re going to run into John Mayer eventually. Enjoy!
What an amazing sound these two have created… that’s Elliot and Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle whom I was referring to. You can hear quite the combination of genres mixed together in this one song. Seems like they’d be great to see live, and I can only imagine that everyone’s off their seats, dancing away… Keep an eye open for more good music from Wild Belle, since they just signed a 3-album contract with Columbia Records.

From the G.O.O.D Music LP due out September 18, here’s a snippet of the Kanye West, R. Kelly song “To The World”. It’s one of the most anticipated albums of the year, and after hearing more and more of it, I think it will hold up to its expectations.
“Simply breathtaking”, was my immediate response after first hearing then seeing the amazing Ava Leigh. Her voice is genuine, sweet, and full of soul. She’s also extremely gorgeous, so you can see how this combination could be deadly. It seems like she was doing mostly reggae before, but from the looks of this behind the scenes video, she has steered more towards the R&B/Soul/Jazz mode. Take a look and listen to this British gem to see what I’m talking about here… again, trust me, you won’t be sorry…

You’re going to definitely want to check out this new one from Rihanna featuring A$AP Rocky on “Cockiness”. And catch them performing it tonight, live, on the MTV Music Video Awards, airing at 6:00 PM EST.
Flying Lotus is due to drop his new album Until The Quiet Comes, October 2. Today, he has released a short film (done by Khalil Joseph), with a few of the songs from the album featuring Erykah Badu and Niki Randa. The film is pretty dark and goes the full depth to tell you a story about a kid that grows up in LA. Watch this clip, and check out the album next month.
