Well. That's Awesome.
So, I’m a little late jumping on the Janelle Monaé bandwagon, but I have to say I’m officially excited about her upcoming album, The Electric Lady. Ever since we saw that video for her single with Erykah Badu I’ve been on the lookout for more news about her sophomore effort, and today we’ve got some exciting stuff. Prince and Miguel will both feature on separate tracks on the album, which makes perfect sense considering Janelle‘s style, but is still a wonderful surprise. Click inside to learn more!
The Duo Was Just Revealed As The Composers On The Track
Kanye West has been very secretive about his upcoming album, and it’s been kind of fun finding out little tidbits of information here and there. Now this is some pretty dope news– remember when we first heard the single Black Skinhead back when Yeezy debuted it on Saturday Night Live? Well what we didn’t know was that Daft Punk (who’s unmasked faces were just recently revealed to the public) were actually behind the track. The electronic music duo was credited as composers of the song, and they had also spoken out a while back about working with Kanye. Click inside for more!

Throwback Thursdays Celebrates 'The Bachelor'
Guys, I know I’m late but I just got on the Pandora train and I am in luuuurve. Somehow I got lost in a vortex the other day and decided to hang out on the ‘Ginuwine‘ station. Sigh. Lemme tell you about Ginuwine for a second. Ya know how we recently revived our hot-person-of-the-week post? Well, if this was 1996, Ginuwine would be my hot-person-of-the-week… every week. I legitimately did not know what a sex symbol was until I walked into a record store when I was like 10 years old and saw the Ginuwine poster to end all Ginuwine posters. He was shirtless, sweaty, and I needed that poster in my life. Desperately. But something told me that if I asked my mom to get it for me… there was, like, a 75% chance she might just turn around and slap me. LMAO. And that, my friends, is how I discovered sex, sex symbols, and probably my own budding sexuality. In a record store, staring at a poster of Ginuwine. Please click inside so we can celebrate the amazingness that was this guy’s body/voice back in the day!

Hear ye, Hear ye! Today is a very special day which is cause for great celebratory jubilation … because today is my dear friend Ollie‘s Birthday! Ollie, the amazing musician known professionally as Hustle Roses, was born on this day just a few years ago (numbers are not important) and it is for that reason that I ask you all to help me celebrate her very special day.

Everybody Say 'Cheeeese!'
A picture’s worth at least a thousand words, and everyone is trying to figure out exactly what this picture means.

Jigga, Justin, and Timbo have already successfully collaborated on Justin‘s Suit & Tie movement, and we also know Jay-Z and JT are going on tour this summer. So what’s Nas doing in there?

On Monday night I got to see singer/songwriter Lenka perform an acoustic concert and last night I was able to see her perform a second concert, this time with a full band. As I mentioned before, Lenka is one of my new fave performers so I was really happy to see her perform two different shows over two different nights in celebration of her new album Shadows which was released yesterday. Last night I managed to record some video to share with all y’all so you can have a taste of just how great Lenka is live.
