Coldplay “Music Of The Spheres” Tour Atlanta 2022 – JAYFORCE.COM

Coldplay is one of our favorite bands of this generation & this world-renown group haven’t been to Atlanta that often over the years so this show for attendees would be nothing less than special. The last time Coldplay performed live in Atlanta was back in 2012. Chris Martin, lead singer of Coldplay acknowledged the significance of their return to Atlanta this past June 11th on Saturday night. Chris Martin explained that prior to their first ever show in Atlanta more than a decade ago, they weren’t doing well or maybe things weren’t going as they expected as a band. Their first ever show in at Atlanta was at the popular concert venue “The Tabernacle” & the show turned out so well for them that he said it was a significant turning point in their careers afterward. Coming out of the pandemic amidst everything else going on in the world, Coldplay’s Atlanta’s return was nothing less than visibly electric & spectacular for the 70,000+ sold out show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

This Coldplay “Music Of The Spheres” show has been one of the best concerts we’ve attended by any artist in years. The stadium roof was open, the fireworks, the lasers, the LED wristbands given to fans, & the four different stages strategically positioned at various points on the floor all worked out perfectly in unison for one of the best shows I’ve ever attended. The band brought out surprise guest & Atlanta native Kelly Rowland at one point in the show for an acoustic cover of “Independent Women” from her time with her group Destiny’s Child. Prior to introducing Kelly Rowland to the crowd Chris Martin spoke to the audience about how when Coldplay was a new band with little money, not very fashionable & some notoriety via their one hit song that was hovering around the mid 20s on the UK charts, they met Destiny’s Child at UK televison show “Top Of The Pops.” This was the initial meeting & beginning of their friendly relationship as artists in the music industry. It was fitting that the band started their show with their song “Higher Power” as its noted that most of the performance at Mercedes-Benz stadium was powered by green energy. Fans that danced & moved around on the floor of the stadium powered many of the lights & prior to the show beginning their were people riding stationary bikes which interestingly assisted in this green energy task. It’s just one of the many efforts that band has been supporting in making the planet better as well as continuing to making the world better through music. Check out some exclusive videos above & below from the JAYFORCE.COM crew covering the event…

Quelle Chris x Chris Keys – “Sudden Death” (Video)

Just clear that desktop and start fresh. Just let your seat back take a breath. You’ll find it’s worth it cause life ain’t perfect.

File this under ‘what in the…’

Okay, let me tell you how your first time watching experience is going to go. You read the title like, “Whoa!” And you recognize that Quelle Chris got spits, repping Mellow Music, all that. Then that Mellow Chris Keys Music drops, and you’ll be like, “Ooookaaay. Just wait until the drop, and when the BAR show begins… WOOOOWEE!”

And then, while waiting, a few minutes later, you see the final credits.

And now your mouth is open. Yeah. Now watch, and let it happen. Very different. Gotta play this again.

Rhythm Roulette With Joji (Video)

Hmmm… Some weird elements to start. But when you hear Joji yell, “Game over!” you somehow know it’s all gonna turn out alright… for the most part.

“This sh*t goes hard, right?” Joji stepped into NYC’s Good Records with one goal, select three records at random and create a beat on the spot, adding his name to the long list of producers to have taken the #RhythmRoulette challenge. Equipped with The Moody Blues’ ‘Seventh Sojourn’ and two other albums from deep in the crates, the 88Rising artist and producer got really weird using Jimmy Castor Bunch’s “The Last Olé” to create a trumpet-driven beat that is certainly one-of-a-kind. Peep the video above and let us know how he did.

Toro y Moi – “Ordinary Pleasure”

Do not attempt to adjust the horizontal… (is that TV reference too old school? Yes, maybe?) Cool ‘visualizer’ effect to deliver some cool audio stimulation. Not ‘ordinary’ no matter what the title is.

“Ordinary Pleasure” is taken from Toro y Moi’s forthcoming album, ‘Outer Peace,’ out January 18th on Carpark Records.

Bri Steves – “Late Night” (Video)

Another share from Bri Steves. The vibe on this one makes it easy to understand why Kendrick Lamar gave his cosign on her.

Bri Steves – “Jealousy” (Video)

Maybe “They Don’t Know…” about how Bri Steves can take a classic R&B jawn, shave off the slow drag parts, add copious amounts of funky spice, double the sexy, and serve it hot on these streets! But they should. Why not start with this “Jealousy” video and learn though?

Executive Producer Thandie Newton Presents “Liyana” (Trailer)

You know the movie is going to be powerful when the trailer touches your heart and wells your eyes with tears. With animation in it no less. Incredibly compelling film!

Under the guidance of acclaimed South African storyteller, Gcina Mhlophe, five orphaned children from Swaziland collaborate to craft a collective fairytale drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character, Liyana, is brought to life in innovative animated artwork as she embarks on a perilous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. The children’s real and imagined worlds begin to converge, and they must choose what kind of story they will tell – in fiction and in their own lives.

This genre-defying film weaves an original animated hero’s journey with poetic documentary scenes to create an inspiring tale of perseverance. LIYANA is a tribute to creativity, the strength of the human spirit, and the healing power storytelling.

Critically acclaimed, and executive produced by award-winning actress, Thandie Newton, LIYANA has won more than 25 jury and audience awards and screened at more than 80 film festivals around the world including the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival and MoMA’s Doc Fortnight.

H.E.R. – “I Used to Know Her: The Prelude” (EP)

It’s funny how H.E.R. put out an EP after H.E.R. LP situation… Well, not ‘funny’ so much… just heard the first track of this set following in the footprints of “Lost Ones” by Lauryn Hill (even calling it “Lost Souls”) and felt the line flip was appropriate. Maybe? Maybe not? Ha!

Either way, don’t stop at that song. Stream all of “I Used to Know Her: The Prelude” for the FREE.99!


King Slik – “Paradise Pkwy” (Prod. By Nash B) [Video]

Here’s what I do folks… I link with folks as I make my way through life and music. Then depending on how strong they help me keep the bond, we stay up. I do not press folks, but if they hit me and share what they are up to from time to time, I take the time to check for it whenever possible. That’s it. But that is IMPORTANT to me because (1) it is humane treatment of an artist who baring her/his soul to AND (2) because I am a human trying to follow The Golden Rule to the best of my understanding (i.e. I’d want someone to take a moment and give a f**k about what I am trying to do, too) #SupportWhoSupportU #acKNOWLEDGEment

Plus, I often get a curbside look at the hottest thing coming up the street. Next up: The homie Nik aka King Slik! More about him after the jump, but check out this video and see if you see what I am seeing… a dude that could easily track the success of a young Wiz Khalifa (got the ‘it’ factor already, just needs proper spotlighting to highlight his shine)!

Kasai – “Pretty Boys” feat. Joey Bada$$ (Video)

Ha! Thinking Joey stole grub off A$AP Rocky’s plate this go ’round… Isn’t Rocky the one that calls himself the ‘pretty m***erf*cker’ though? Dope alt-pop sound from Kasai accented by the Bada$$ bars peppered on there.

Pretty Boys is the first release from London singer/songwriter Kasai. Starting out writing music in her bedroom just over a year ago, things have come together quickly for the young artist. The song was written in response to her female friends’ experiences on the dating scene. Her long-standing friend Joey Bada$$ heard of the track online and was quick to request a featuring moment.
