[MUSIC VIDEO] “Supermodel”-SZA (@sza)!

The music industry is always turning out new artists. Most of them fall to the wayside like cobblestones in an abandoned graveyard, but every now and then a truly talented one comes along that reminds us just how magical music can be. As of July 31, 2017 that artist for us is none other than Sza!

Sza has already made waves with her first single, Love Galore, and now she is riding the wave with a new music video for her latest hit, Supermodel! check it out below!

Okay so we definitely love this video. It is so simple and deep at the same time! The fairies, kids, and the message of I do not need you to be whatever I want to be are a message of empowerment to women and girls everywhere to believe in themselves. Supermodel is so ethereal and just puts you in your feelings.

We have heard the song a number of times on the radio and as of last night on HBO’s Insecure as we watched Issa have no choice but to move on from her now ex-boyfriend, Lawrence. Either way we are going to have this single and video on repeat!

[VIDEO] In Case You Missed It! Kash Dinero (@Kash_Dinero100) Covers Song for “About Him: The Revolution!”

Signal 23 TV is definitely full of surprises! No we are not talking about the departure of a Web Star or a new series.

We are, however, talking about Kash Dinero covering Tevin Campbell’s song, “Tell Me What You Want Me To Do” in Episode 7 of About Him Season 2: The Revolution!

 Signal 23 TV posted an exclusive snippet of the song via their Instagram and we have to say we are smitten. Check it out below:

You can see the full video in Episode 7 of About Him: The Revolution. Kash’s cover of such a classic song comes as a surprise not because of the song choice, but because none of us knew he could sing. We are very familiar with the singer’s background (and we are still swooning) and are thrilled he can add this to his “body of work”–we mean repertoire! Dinero is a great singer and we hope to hear more music from him, even some original tracks. This song choice however is just perfect. Dustin (Gary Lavard) and Armani (Chris June) are definitely the super couple of web series in general right now and their love story has the potential to be as deep or legendary as any two star-crossed lovers lining the walls of fictional history.

What do you guys think of Kash’s song. We definitely would not mind a soundtrack of original music from this season of About Him (HINT, HINT) and are really loving how this season is progressing. The story lines, cast, and more importantly the activism of this series is nothing short of impressive. Kash Dinero drop us a line for an interview, we are definitely ready to get close and personal!

The release of “Strength of a Woman” comes during the buildup to the Claws premiere, taking place this Sunday, June 11, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) across TNT platforms. The premiere will be followed by an encore presentation on Twitter.

“The inspiration for ‘Strength of a Woman’ came from my life. It came from some very heavy trials and hardships through my life that I had to come through,” said Mary J. Blige. “There are a lot of similar themes in the show Claws. They’re in some heavy, sticky, nasty situations but that is what survival is about.”

With its story focusing on five manicurists working at a Central Florida nail salon, Claws celebrates empowered women as they navigate the challenges of their professional and daily lives. Blige integrated members of the cast into her “Strength of a Woman” music video in order to show off an array of proud, hard-working women – a common thread woven throughout the R&B songstress’ album and resonating at the heart of its title song. “Strength of a Woman” is a reflection of Blige’s journey to overcoming emotional turmoil and, like Claws, honors women by exploring themes of self-worth and empowerment.

Mary J. Blige never fails to deliver check out the music video for Strength Of A Woman below!

via Press Release

KAYLA BRIANNA READIES THE VISUAL TO HER LATEST SINGLE "LUCK'

Kayla Brianna, partners with BET Networks to release her steamy visuals to her chart topping, summer smash, ‘Luck’. The video is now streaming exclusively on all BET platforms including BET Jams, and BET Soul. Last fall, the rising star revealed she had been working extensively with Young Thug’s not-so-secret weapon, London On Da Track for her debut project and ‘Luck’ is a direct result of those ATL studio sessions. Offering up vibes galore, the visual for Luck echoes the up-beat London produced track and offers a first class look into the sultry singer’s triple-threat capabilities.

 

After an alluring shower scene, clips of the R&B princess basking in the sunlight amongst a hot male counterpart, and a choreographed sequence, the montage heats up even more when Platinum Recording Artist Dreezy appears half-way through the clip-letting all men know it’s going to take more than good “game” to approach her. On wanting Dreezy on the song and in the video, Kayla says: “I wanted to show my fellow brown girls that our black is beautiful and for everyone to be able to look at us having a good-time and know they too can feel good in their skin.”

What better way to retire than listening to the smooth vocals of TRAEDONYA!

TRAEDONYA! (AKA The Bride of New Funk Hipopera) who is a Bronx raised vocalist celebrates New York Yankee‘s great Derek Jeter, with a very personal visual that takes you back to Sept 27th 2014 at Yankee stadium on Mr. Jeter’s last day playing at the stadium. The visual features real Yankee fans emotionally discussing him. It is currently exclusively on Facebook.

Derek Jeter retires from the New York Yankees

TRAEDONYA! like her fellow New Yorkers that day, was feeling a deep sadness yet managing to still celebrate his 20 years in NYC. There were so many people at the stadium who had grew up with him.

Derek Jeter Retires from the New York Yankees

TRAEDONYA! Releases new single, ‘My Favorite Guy’ featuring Derek Jeter.

This past Sunday, the ball player retired his number and left fans all over emotional as he delivered his speech.

 “I was asked recently if I could trade places with one person, who it would be,” Jeter said in his address. “There isn’t a person or player I would trade places with that’s playing now or ever. And the reason why I say that is because I got a chance to play for a first-class organization and in front of the greatest fans in the history of sports.”

“You know, you play here in New York for 20 years,” he said. “I learned that time flies, memories fade, but family is forever—and I’ll be eternally grateful to be a part of the Yankees family, so I can’t thank you guys enough. Thank you very much.”

Derek Jeter

TRAEDONYA! releases ‘My Favorite Guy‘ featuring Derek Jeter.

While outside Yankee stadium she witnessed the sorrow and sullen expressions on people’s faces that touched her deeply. From that experience the song, “My Favorite Guy” was imagined. I saw that he was New York City’s Favorite Guy that day. “I am not a baseball fan but I know who Derek Jeter is”, says TRAEDONYA!

The song is a soulful piano driven song anchored by TRAEDONYA’S sweet vocals. The song is the soundtrack for the visual. Check out the video below and more information about her.
