[VIDEO] Villz- 420am (prod. by Mike Ewing)

Quietly creeping his way into the music scene singer/songwriter, Villz, introduces his newest video entitled “420am.” The Florida native relocated to Nashville, TN to embark on a new journey and work on new music for the masses as a part of the Gold House regime. Seemingly hitting the jackpot once he relocated, Villz formed a relationship with producer Mike Ewing and the two have been creating greatness ever since.

420am, which was produced by Ewing, is a track that showcases the vocal talents of Villz in various ways. Tethering the subtle approach of the production with his melodic vocals, Villz creates a moody track that immediately draws the ear once his voice is heard. As if the sensual track isn’t enough, Villz works with the talented TMETRVLR SAO to create a neon-lit, silhouette stemmed visual treatment that is nothing short of perfection. Villz draws the connection in the 2009 film, Enter the Void, which dipicts the life of a drug dealer amongst the bright lights and city dreams of Tokyo but takes a dramatic turn. Once you’ve seen the movie (as suggested by Villz), 420am is that much more intriguing to watch. With the support of GH87, the production of Mike Ewing, and the visual bliss from SAO, what more can one ask for? We’ll answer that with the hopes of more music and visuals to ready our audience for the crazy ride we’re all about to take with the release of Til the End of Summer.

420am has been circulating throughout the blogosphere the past few days at a rapid pace as it has already been featured on the front page of Complex Mag, Hip Hop DX, Thisis50, and YouHeardThatNew amongst other well-respected websites.

[AUDIO] Stream Mariah Carey’s New album “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse”


On May 27, Mariah Carey‘s newest album “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse” will be available for purchase but you can now stream the album in full via iTunes Radio First Play. Mariah’s 14th album includes appearances from Nas, Wale, Miguel, and Fabolous. R. Kelly and Mary J. Blige show up on the extra tracks featured in the Deluxe edition.

From first listen, the album is a major step up from 2009′s “Memoir of an Impect Angel” which became her worst selling record. The new music was long-delayed but totally worth it. Carey is back to her grand ballads but the R&B vibe is still very alive. It is clear that she has gone all in on this album.

[EVENT] Ledisi Takes To The Balcony in Nashville, Tn (Show Recap)

Ledisi performed at War Memorial Auditorium this past Sunday night in Nashville, TN. She is currently out on tour promoting her record, The Truth.

Singer songwriter Ledisi breaks away from her usual ballads on the newest project and speeds things up a bit. The show starts off with Ledisi, joined by two dancers, strutting her stuff to “That Good Good” (my personal favorite off of The Truth). She made it known at the beginning of the show that the majority of the songs that night would be newer material. However, she did kick it old school for a portion of the show. During “Pieces of Me”, she walked out into the crowd and sang to all of her female fans. She even made her way up the stairs because “the balcony never gets any love.” The night ended with her latest single, “I Blame you”, complete with a chair dance routine.  Bad relationships may not be ideal but Ledisi’s new record proves that good can come from the bad. There are still a few more stops left on her tour.

May 16 – Houston, TX – Bayou Music Center

May 17 – Austin, TX – ACL Live

May 21 – San Francisco, CA – Warfield Theatre

[AUDIO] Danity Kane-Lemonade

Danity Kane is BACK!! The reformed girl group dropped their latest single “Lemonade” late last night. Dawn Richards “Partition” inspired intro is everything. Set to the strong beat people will be wondering “who the hell is her” after hearing this song.

oOoOoOoH IT’S HOT

The cover art for the track has people wondering why there are only 3 girls. It’s known that D.Woods is no longer a part of the group but it looks like another one may have called it quits. O’Day, Bex, and Richard have all promoted the new track but Fimbres has been a little quite.

The girls are about to head out for their #DKNOFILTERTOUR which kicks off tomorrow and travels to San Francisco, Anaheim, Chicago, Saint Louis, Cincinnati, Detroit, Cleveland, Charlotte, Boston, Silver Spring, Philadelphia, New York, and San Diego. You can grab tickets HERE.
