New Music: Beyonce – Spirit

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

Just ahead of the premiere of the new live-action “The Lion King” on Tuesday, Beyoncé shared a new song, “Spirit,” from a new album that she curated to coincide with the film’s release.

“The Lion King: The Gift” is different from the official soundtrack, which will feature songs from the film, including a duet of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” sung by her and co-star Donald Glover.

“This is sonic cinema,” Beyoncé said of “The Lion King: The Gift” in a statement. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.”

“I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.”

Jon Favreau directed the new “The Lion King,” which stars Donald Glover as Simba, along with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, John Oliver, John Kani, Alfre Woodard, Florence Kasumba, Eric Andre and Keegan-Michael Key.

“The Lion King: The Gift” will be released on July 19, the same as the film hits theaters. The official “Lion King” soundtrack, which is produced by Hans Zimmer and Favreau, will be released by Walt Disney Records on July 11.

Adele is coming…

Published

Adele took to her social media outlets earlier today to announce that her new single, “Easy On Me“, will be released next week.

As big as Adele is, it be foolish to say nobody cares, but one thing that always has baffled me is why do we get over hyped for blue eyed soul? Don’t get me wrong, Adele has made so much great music in the past. Her body of work is solid and stands alone. She has earned her spot. But as black people, why do we give blue eyed soul such a high praise, but in return have a hard time promoting and supporting our own people, the originators of this sound?

Please don’t get me wrong, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying the music of the blue eyed soul singers like Adele, Sam Smith, and Justin Timberlake. I just hope that the original soul singers can get that kind of love and respect as well.

Moe Isaac Premiere’s ‘ The Fader ‘ ( EP)

Published

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Moe Isaac is finally ready to release his long awaited third project ‘The Fader‘ which has truly been a long time coming. The R&B crooner born and raised in NYC is clearly no stranger to doing this on his own terms so it only makes sense that he continues to push his eclectic blend of Hip Hip and R&B to the masses which ultimately sets him apart from the rest. The classically trained LaGuardia High School alumni definitely put in the work over the past two decades from winning amateur night at the Apollo three times while in a group and selling sold out shows as a solo act as he searched for the right place to land his debut project. He ultimately decided to release his 2009 project ‘This Ain’t R&B‘ independently to critical acclaim which solidified him as once to watch but then it would be awhile before his growing fanbase would hear another project from him. In 2017 he released his next EP ‘ Love on A Spaceship ‘ which showed major growth in his sound and production style as listeners gravitated toward the new Moe Isaac, but once again the entrepreneur took another hiatus from music as he proved to be a rockstar in the IT world as well. Now although he didn’t release any projects since then, his passion for his craft never left him as he continued to figure out who Moe Isaac truly was as a singer/performer and now he’s back to give the world just a preview of what can we expect from his highly anticipated album. For now get into his new 4 track EP ‘The Fader‘ as he gives us a glimpse into the world of Moe Isaac below.
