Eden Prince – “Obvious” feat. Cassie

Li’l bouncy. Li’l saucy. Definitely sexy. Check out this hot dance track from London-based producer Eden Prince. She enlisted Cassie to pour some sugar on it in an “Obvious” attempt to appeal to our sense of sensuality.

Oh yeah. That sh!t working!

Sunni Colón – “Little Things” (Prod. By Kaytranada)

Dope! That boom bap slap start, with that slight dirtied-up crackle in the track… might have you ready to click off… but then you hear the jazzy vocals come in incredibly to tie the whole thing down! Nah, you aren’t going anywhere. Turns out all the elements contribute to the enjoyment of this. All those things, all those “Little Things”… matter.

Jorja Smith – “On My Mind” (Prod. By Preditah) [Video]

Jorja Smith & Preditah with some UK club jamming dance tunes. Jorja’s gotta tell you about what’s “On My Mind” (um… her mind). Letting it ooze out over the Preditah-produced groove, with soul, and some bop. Nice stuff.

But let her friends tell it: It’s a bit too singy. *Sigh* Haters. Baahahaaa!

World Music/R&B: Switt – “Aléa Mba” (Video)

Oh, say “Aléa Mba” like ‘Ollie-Um-Bye-Yay.’ So much flavor put down by Switt in his official video for the single off his “Pieces Of Me” project (out now).

“Aléa Mba” depicts a young man who happily ends up proposing to his longtime girlfriend. On this one, Switt uses his soulful voice to tackle the issue of commitment in our modern day relationships.
– Stunnas Group

Learn more about Switt after the jump; after you click play a few times. Great stuff!

(Oh, and a quick Google of the phrase “Alea Mba” revealed a translation: “Hold me down.” Now, click play again.)

Dance: Niteshifters – “Huge Disco” (Album)

It pays to clean out the ol’ inbox… noted. Found email about this funky disco disc (okay, digital album) from Niteshifters in there. It’s called “Huge Disco”… kinda straight forwarded but hella good. I got that Daft Punk “Lose Yourself To Dance” feel from it. See what you feel about it. Listen to the sampler below.

NITESHIFTERS – HUGE DISCO (LP)

DJ Rasta Root – “One Musicfest 2017 Official Mix” (Mixtape)

The homie Rasta Roooot! Dude went across the spectrum, up & down the music levels, and swept the corners out the club for this mix! J.I.D. to Jill Scott… with some Thundercat, Kaytranada, Syd, Tank And The Bangas, Too $hort, and even Migos in here. Definitely a trip. A hip trip cued up for you to enjoy.

Throwback: Full Force On Their Infamous “I Smell Pu**y” Line From “House Party” (Video)

Score for this one! If you were alive when the “House Party” movie came out, you KNOW that “I smell… I SMELL… PU**Y” line. Classic cinema right there. Check out the cats that made it [in]famous speaking on it today.

(And they talk about making great music with Lisa Lisa… who EVERYBODY wanted to ‘take home’ back in the day. YES!)

Dope visuals for that single “Another Love Song” from Ne-Yo that we posted a while back. Incredible Eye Candies and dance moves in this. Cameo or two. Fun to watch.

Ish Sankara – “Eddie Murphy” (Video)

I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! It is YOU!

Yeah, an alt #ComingToAmerica vibe for certain. And Ish Sankara is going Prince Hakeem on us in this video. Haha! This “Eddie Murphy” is pretty cool. And while iTunes categorizes it as ‘rap’ music. Get into more of a ‘world music’ state of mind to really enjoy this jawn. Then press play above.

Up And Coming Dancer/Choreographer ShirJuanda ‘Bounce’ Woodson Debuts Her HoverKicks Ad (Video)

Wow! Have you been keeping up with ShirJuanda ‘Bounce’ Woodson? So beautiful. So talented. And her grind… how can someone start from the bottom, get it out the mud, and look so clean every step of the way? I will post a couple more vids (including a behind-the-scenes for the one above) after the jump to initiate those who don’t know and allow those who do to celebrate. Watch and realize that HoverKicks is just now recognizing what many already know… Bounce is the BUSINESS!

After creating her viral ’90s video to Boyz 2 Men’s hit “Motown Philly,” Bounce was discovered by Hoverkicks and asked to create their newest commercial for their famous light-up shoes line!!!
– HoverKicks

I feel very fortunate to have gotten in on her ‘friend wave’ before she can accept no more. We’ll hear more from Bounce to be sure. But for now, let’s salute to her success for just a sec.

(Time’s up! Bounce is already on the move to the next project. Trust.)

DeJ Loaf – “No Fear”

Really feeling this. Nice bop to it making it a dance track for those who got moves for the groove, but it also sounds good for a sunny day ride out. Just in time for summer, Dej Loaf is saying ‘Try Me’ once again… but a bit softer. Have “No Fear” though, because the edgy sensuality vibe you dig is still there. And the single is out there now; on iTunes.

(Plus that pic is kinda cute.)
