Tidal X : Brooklyn Happened…. Or Did It?

Published

on

Last night stars took over the stage in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center, and it’s easy to say that the show was great….kinda. Today’s hottest stars shared the stage from Jay Z, Chris Brown, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea, Remy Ma & Fat Joe, and Fifth Harmony. The benefit was thrown as a charity function for all of the victims affected by the hurricanes this year.

The downside to this show always remains that they feature so many fluff artists that you find it hard to sit through the whole show, but you don’t want to look away because you don’t want to miss your favorite artists. Two Tidal titans, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj, were missing from the stage last night which already set a certain tone for most people, as they are usually highly talked about acts. Beyonce did push through in support of her husband and her group, Chloe X Halle.

I told y’all this was one of the standout tracks from the album. It was a smart move to release the video, but the way Khaled is just dropping videos for this album really makes no sense. People don’t even know it’s out! Anyways, get into the video below.

The Downfall of R&B, and the Overlooked Masterpiece

Published

Once a thriving genre in the music industry, R&B has really fallen between the cracks.

We are in a place where singers don’t sing, vocalists are overlooked, and a whole genre was pushed to smaller radio, unless you talk about sex. Back in the 90s and 00s, you could turn on the radio and hear Toni Braxton sing Another Sad Love Song, then hear Tupac rap California Love. Nowadays, R&B is pushed to Adult Contemporary stations, unless you are singing about sex or drugs. It’s really time for mainstream Urban Radio to give R&B the respect it deserves. And to be honest, Jazmine Sullivan and HER are leading the way.

Today Jazmine Sullivan was awarded an RIAA certification for her single, “Pick Up Your Feelings“. While I am happy for her, it upsets me that this is her first song to ever get certified. Jazmine’s only other plaque is for her first album, which should really be Platinum but it’s only Gold. Jazmine has put out 4 amazing albums, and they’ve continuously went overlooked. Before Pick Up Your Feelings, Jazmine hadn’t charted on the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 years! 10 whole years.

Meanwhile artists like Summer Walker, Kehlani, Jhene Aiko and more have had huge success on the charts. I’m not pitting them against each other nor am I comparing. But I will say a bulk of their music is about sex or “fuck niggas” vibes. But where’s that leave room for the lovers? It takes a huge name to get the love back on the radio, like a Bruno Mars with his latest single, “Leave The Door Open“. I have a feeling that real R&B is on it’s way back, and Vibe&B is about to take a little break. At least I’m hoping.
