Ms. Lauryn Hill – Feeling Good (Nina Simone Tribute)

Laryn Hill is the epitome of resiliency. She has a human essence about her from a turbulent career, shattered relationships to always finding the most beautiful and impactful ways to remind many of us why we LOVE her so. Her resiliency and depth will always resonate with me. Some may not see the magnitude of her success, but anyone who can bounce back with a smile on their face is truly a renegade and LOVER of LIFE.

Mark Ronson – Feel Right ft. Mystikal

"This is dedicated to all the player hating teachers who won't let a little gangster shine". You can not help but smile through out this video! I Feel Right because its Friday!!! Continue Reading

Super Chris Chrisette Michelle

Chrisette Michelle's voice is so crisp and pretty. Her music is timeless and her talents mind blowing. After watching her on R&B Divas, I enjoy her music even more especially her quirky outlook on life with those "Angel Wings". Awaiting her newest album "The Lyricists Opus". Continue Reading

Shake It Off Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift could not have sang the chorus any better "Shake It Off". In a world of opinions, assumptions and accusations it could make a sane person want to go mad. Everyone has their role and once I learn what it is, then I decide how much time I want to invest in the MESS. I have been there and at the end of the day, it serves no good to pay attention to what people have to say especially when they don't know. So I keep it moving and "Shake It Off". Continue Reading

Rude Magic

Eventhough this song has been out since 2013, I can not get enough of it... The members of Magic has RUDE BOY SWAG...The reggae melody has me hooked! "Why you gotta be so Rude" "Don't you know I'm human too" "Why you gotta be so Rude" "I'm gonna marry her anyway"..... Continue Reading

Mary J. Blige New Music On The Soundtrack Think Like A Man Too

Mary is back and its always exciting to hear her new music. All Fun And Games is about the games people play until it all goes wrong and hurt gets involve. Who could forget the Shalamar song Night To Remember from 1982 an R&B classic that will make anyone want to move. As usual Mary always returns with a stylish look. Continue Reading

Think Like A Man Too Poison Remake

As if we could not LOVE the song Poison any more than we do. The ladies of Think Like A Man Too did a funny rendition of the Bell Biv Devoe classic. Continue Reading

Miss Calypso

Anything with Calypso, I have to smile...West Indian culture influenced even Dr. Maya Angelou. Continue Reading

Doo Wop That Thing

Lauryn Hill and daughter Selah Marley perform the chorus of "Doo Wop That Thing".   I still am a lover of Lauryn Hill despite all the negative press, she still continues to rise above it all. She is an example of the Maya Angelou poem "Still I Rise".  Check out the video from Black Celebs Kids. Continue Reading


I can not get enough of this Pharrell song as I brush my teeth while performing some of my favorite lines. Everytime I hear it, it's as if I am hearing it for the first time. Experiencing this song with some of my favorite ladies (Dee of Nubian Glam Rock and the ladies of Black Women That Rock) in the "VALLEY" really showed me how similar we all are especially when it comes to just wanting HAPPINESS for ourselves and others--> NOW THAT IS AN UNSELFISH PLACE TO BE! So HAPPINESS can be ... Continue Reading

Shakira & Rhianna Track….Can’t Remember To Forget You

I enjoy these two singers together especially because they have the Caribbean connection. LOVE IT! Continue Reading

My Favorite Jimmy Fallon & The Roots

My favorite Jimmy Fallon musical renditions. He brings a new spin on late night and the Roots are so talented its a DAMN shame! Miley Cirus is too cute. I am not really a fan, but I have to give her kudos on this song. She is talented! Its the first time I really listened to the words and I can say I actually like this song. Quest Love knew he was loving the line with that mentioned the strip club. His smile was contagious! Continue Reading

This Christmas Mary J. Blige

Who does not LOVE this timeless song.  There has been several renditions of this song.  Chris Brown's remake is one of my favorites next to the original by Donny Hathaway.  I am already smelling and feeling the Christmas spirit. Continue Reading

Been Given A Morning Kelis

Kelis's new single "Been Given A Morning" by far is different from her hit song "My Milkshake".  I am liking this mature side of Kelis.  Her voice sounds like Billie Holiday over the jazzy rhythms.  This is Sunday morning cup of tea snuggled up with your BOO music.  Anticipating hearing her entire album. Continue Reading

Switch Adina Howard

Adina is back with a new release entitled "Switch".  Ever since her first album, I know I have been wanting more from her.  Switch is catchy.  I am not really feeling it though.  It reminded me of a Beyonce song particularly "Who Run The World" and "Get Me Bodied".  I am sure the strip clubs will be killing this song.  Hopefully, Ms Adina has more to give us especially those who have always been a fan. Continue Reading

I Can’t Describe (The Way That I Feel) Jennifer Hudson, Pharrell & T.I.

The collaboration with Jennifer, Pharrell and T.I. is musical creativity. Jennifer sounds a bit like Patrice Rushen and some of those other DIVAS from the 80's. Pharrell and T.I. seem to have found great chemistry together.  I felt like rollerskating when listening to this song.  God's knows I would hurt something if I even tried. Continue Reading
