UK’s own Joshua Luke Smith has something to say and it’s best if you take a listen. With his latest release Heart of Man he touches on a major issue that has plagued the world for years (accepting the unknown i.e race, gender etc.). Joshua is set to start his Becoming Human tour January 21, 2017 and tickets are available on his Official Website. The tour will be promoting Joshua’s new record Your Beauty Deluxe Edition also set to be released January 21, 2017. Joshua Luke Smith’s empathy is not seen often in hip-hop and it’s inspiring.

Happy New Year!!! Kicking off the first Melodic Monday with a hot one. Press play and vibe with me to Kehlani’s single CRZY.
Happy 2017 to each and everyone of you. 2016 brought a lot of ups and downs and even happy times and I’m happy to get on with the new year. My advice to you this year is to not be afraid, to take all that you are (talents, gifts) and hone your crafts. May this year bring loads of new opportunities and may your dreams manifest greater than you’ve ever expected. Get into some new tunes down below!!
The year 2016 has been filled with tons of new music releases. Granted some weren’t as musically appealing as others, but all in all it’s been a great year for music lovers. As I sit and reflect on the past year and what’s been accomplished I can honestly say I’m proud to close this chapter and welcome a new one in just a few days (2017).

Heard this and had to post!! Aminé’s Caroline is such a good vibe it really doesn’t need a long drawn out review. Just press play and vibe with me…
Never one to shy away and not speak her mind Dawn Richard is back with another intricately woven body of work. Redemption gives fans an even closer look into just how creative and talented Dawn really is. It’s personal, it’s raw and everything music lovers are in need of at this moment. The Louvre a track off Redemption is soul with a twist and it’s perfect for today’s Soulful Sunday pick. If you haven’t checked out the album be sure to do so immediately. In the meantime check out The Louvre below!
