Album Review: Chance The Rapper – The Big Day

With the album coming out late on Friday, he is still predicted to debut at #1 with about 110k-125k first week. Chance’s “Hot Shower” is leading on the streaming platforms, sitting Top 5 at Apple Music and holding the #7 spot at Spotify. This is actually sad, and a reflection of today’s poor taste in music. Out of all the great music on Chance’s album, the general perfect picked the one song where he dumbs down his lyrical content to match today’s mediocre rap styles of DaBaby.

It’s been some time since I’ve blogged, but to be honest, there hasn’t been much that has caught my attention lately.

But this Chance album has GOT ME!

Chance has released his debut album and it was well worth the wait. Filled with top notch features, melodies, and most importantly REAL RAP! It is so very refreshing to hear an album that celebrates what the everyday man can really appreciate. He talks about rededicating his life to God, finding true love with his wife, loving his brother, and more. These topics are so different than your everyday rapper now.

Other features on the album was the quite impressive Nicki Minaj. With not 1 but 2 verses on the album, she offered up some of the best verses that she has had in years. There are many songs that provide the long missing R&B vibes of the 90s, some provided by legendary divas SWV and En Vogue. Megan The Stallion‘s feature on “Handsome” was a surprise, and like “Hot Shower“, it wasn’t too impressive. Her bars are very amateur and repetitive. I’m anxiously awaiting the day that she elevates her skillset and has the lyrical content that matches her flow.

Overall this is an impressive body of work, and I look forward to see how it fairs at the Grammys. It’s very deserving of more Grammys.

    Album Review: Chris Brown releases “Breezy”

    Let me start out by saying, as a member of Team Breezy, Chris Brown simply missed his mark on revisiting his debut sound. This is something he said we could expect from this album. None the less, the album is still nothing short of fire.

    23 tracks are included in the standard edition of the album, and it’s giving you nothing short of the Chris Brown experience. Some songs and subjects can come across as repetitive subject matter wise and lack depth, while others are sure fire hits.

    Stand out tracks on first listen for me are, Possessive (feat. Lil Wayne & Bleu), Pitch Black, Sex Memories (feat. Ella Mai), Sleep At Night, and Til The Wheels Fall Off (feat. Lil Durk and Capella Grey).

Monica has been working on her upcoming album, currently titled “Trenches”, for a few years now. Although the project doesn’t have a release date yet, from the singles we’ve heard in the past, this promises to be a solid body of work. Check out Monica’s performance below.

    Brandy stopped by the Colors set to perform her single “Rather Be” from her latest effort B7. Check it out below.

    It’s so nice to see that these two 90s divas are still giving impeccable performances

    Oktum Releases Debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’

    Oktum is a Hatian born & raised producer who is truly ready to take over House Music with the release of his long awaited debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which truly has been a labor of love. Now although this is his first music release, he’s definitely not new to music. The talented composer grew up engulfed in music as he listened to his fathers music in Haiti as a celebrated musician playing guitar for the band Les Shleu Shleu. As a kid he would listen to so many different genres of music with some of his inspirations ranging from Franz Schubert, Frédéric Chopin, Bob Marley to Dr.Dre and Thievery Corporation. As a teen he was introduced to the idea of production with FL Studios but navigating   a promising career in music seemed far fetched while living in Haiti at a time when crime and kidnappings were at an all time high. Oktum would go on to move to the U.S. living in Illinois and in NYC but unfortunately his passion for music didn’t follow him as the years went on. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles where he truly felt like he could finally get back into music. In 2019 something clicked and he slowly but surely began to tap back into his sound which has evolved tremendously. As he continued to work on his music the world was rocked by the Corona Virus outbreak but what most would consider a setback was truly the opportunity he needed to focus on his music. Now he is finally ready to embark on this new journey with the release of his debut EP ‘Tales Of Sunset’ which features 5 hard hitting tracks which is sure to get house music lovers on the dance floor. Get into the project below which is just a taste of so much more to come.
