International pop singer/ designer Didi J is back and better than ever with the release of her long awaited debut EP ‘Cover Girl’. It’s been a few years since we last heard from the European star who made waves with her last two singles ‘ Say No More ‘ and ‘ I’m Sorry , but bows she’s ready to take over the world with her latest project. The now mother who took some time off to bring her precious baby girl into the world during the pandemic never stopped working as she quietly gave birth last year. She slowly but surely got back into the studio to cook some records up and now we have a full project which features her latest single ‘Flashing Lights’. The pop singer shot the Eif Rivera directed clip this summer in Miami with NBA star / rapper Drummxnd which has just arrived in time to heat things up this winter. Check out the video , then get into her EP which also features appearances from rap superstar Iggy Azalea on the track ‘Murcielago’ as well as Azia and She Real now available on all music streaming platforms.
Julian King brings the heat with ‘Can We Go Back’
Triple Threat singer/songwriter/dancer Julian King has been known to wow audiences over the years as one hell of a performer , so it should come as no surprise why we’re featuring him today. The Philly native has had quite the few years in the spotlight after making noise on season 16 of the hit NBC series ‘The Voice’. His standout performances definitely made him a fan favorite and although he didn’t win the show, what he got out of the experience was just as rewarding. The show proved that Julian has nothing but star power and his gift will continue to make room for him whenever he shares it. In the past two years he dropped two critically acclaimed projects ‘Made In China’ in 2019 and ‘TakeOut’ in 2020 and this was just only the beginning of what he has in store for the world. This pandemic might have set things back for most of the world but it only has fueled him to get back in the studio and create some of his best work yet. During quarantine his experience with love and the loss of it became the subject of song which is what true artistry is all about. He teamed up with producers Dirty Harry & Robert ‘Biz’ Thomas for this emotional ballad which is sure to connect with anyone who has been in a relationship which suddenly goes wrong. The performance clip shows a different side of Julian as a performer as he gives his audience an intimate look at love between two men in the most vulnerable way as an artist as he shares just a piece of what he personally experienced during quarantine. Get into the must see video as he continues to take his artistry to the next level on his own terms.

Roddy Ricch Readies Sophomore Album
Roddy has taken to instagram to announce the release of his sophomore album, “livelifefast“. The album is slated to arrive on December 17.
Who will feature on it? I’m hoping to hear appearances from Lil Baby, Young Thug, Meek Mill, Drake, 42 Dugg. From what they’ve put out in the past and where they’re at now, I think those would be some solid feature
Adele – 30 (Track By Track Review)
Adele is back! The long awaited album, “30”, will be available on streaming platforms and in stores tomorrow! I’d personally give this album 8/10 stars.
As someone that wasn’t very impressed by 25, I was a little hesitant about getting into 30. However, I must say that I’m thoroughly impressed by this body of work and it was definitely worth the wait. The album starts out with an alternative vibe, gets a little upbeat and ends with the powerhouse ballads. Overall I would say she has really strengthened her vocals and is showing a more honest side of herself. Let’s get into the songs…
Strangers By Nature – a simple melody. Not very attention grabbing but more of a soft introduction to the album
Easy On Me –
My Little Love – a song dedicated to her son. Includes voice memos from conversations with her son as well as what seems to be personal messages of her struggles with her crying about being lonely and anxiety. “I’m holding on, mama’s got a lot to learn”.
Cry Your Heart Out – A guide to getting over someone and moving on. More of an uptempo beat than usually expected by Adele. “Cry your heart out, clean your face, when you’re in doubt, go at your own pace”.
Oh My God – Another mid tempo bop. The intricate vocal stylings in the chorus are perfectly placed.
Can I Get It – The guitar sets the tone of a country smash. When the beat drops, it’s reminiscent of “Rolling In The Deep”. The song is taking you on a journey that’s describqingly based in Country but has a dash of Alternative and 80s/90s Pop. This song deserves a nasty little Texas style line dance and a jeans commercial placement.
I Drink Wine – A typical Adele song. It’s a very self aware song. Something that is very representative of the 30 year old crowd who is finally becoming themself and accepting themselves for who they are.
All Night Parking – If I had to be honest, I would call this SZA-esque. With a little more vocal range. It’s simple but beautiful. It gets very jazzy as she sings “I dream about you, all night long.”
Woman Like Me – A song about loving a broken person who is having trouble realizing the good woman in front of them. Tells the story of a woman, ready to walk away from a situation where she is being under valued and disrespected.
Hold On – Strong Piano intro. Vulnerable vocals. I would call this the album’s big ballad moment. A very stripped, acoustic song. You can literally hear the pain in her voice. The song builds into a big finish with a gospel choir on the chorus. Reminiscent of Adele’s fav song of her own, “One And Only”.
To Be Loved – Another big ballad. Nothing but Adele and the piano. This song will definitely be belted by singers, although with Adele’s vocals seem to be a bit strained at some parts, it just seems very heartfelt.
Love Is A Game – Think 60s. An ode to the R&B/Soul of Motown. I could really see this being a song Diana Ross and the Supremes would have topped the charts with. “Love is a game for fools to play. And I aint fooling. What a cruel thing to self inflict that pain”
12.03 – Mary J Blige – Amazing (single)
12.10 – Alicia Keys – KEYS
12.17 – Roddy Ricch – livelifefast
TBA – Cardi B – TBA
TBA – Monica – Chapter 38
