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!)

R&B: Ne-Yo – “Another Love Song” (Video)

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.

(His date plays the ‘pretty AND petty’ perfectly in this, too. Did you take one of my berries? Hahaaa!)

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.)

Calvin Harris – “Feels” feat. Pharrell Williams x Katy Perry x Big Sean (Preview)

So, Calvin Harris enlisted Pharrell ‘Maker Of Happy’ Williams, Katy ‘Always Happy’ Perry, and Big ‘Happiest Emcee From Detroit’ Sean to give us the “Feels”… or in the case of the clip embedded above… a preview of the song. Technically, it’s a preview of an album preview of the “Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1” (out on iTunes tomorrow).

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.)

Washed Out – “Hard To Say Goodbye”

Washed Out. I love their music & their sound! Great to see new music from them because I’ve been playing “Feel It All Around” a lot lately as if it had just come out. You can pre-order the album (“Mister Mellow”) that will be coming out with this “Hard To Say Goodbye” song on it before the June 30th release via the link.

French Montana – “Unforgettable” feat. Swae Lee (Video)

French Montana is like a new schooler who reaches back to get it “All The Way Up” with Golden Era greats like Fat Joe and Nas, and do some joints with other new schoolers that might be palatable to 90’s heads (so we can nod to some of the music the kids like today). That “Lockjaw” gave me a look at Kodak Black I might not otherwise have taken. This “Unforgettable”… Okay, Swae Lee. I see you. Might go try some more of your Rae Sremmurd music on the strength of this. Respect.

Good on you, Montana. Trying to keep the generations of the Hip-Hop Nation connected. Like LinkedIn for rappers or something. Ha!

Also, the feel is similar to “Lockjaw”… that ‘the hood is the hood wherever you live’ worldwide feel.

Pharrell Williams – “Yellow Light” (Video)

When 8-bit meets real life and gives you life. Hahaaaa!

Gotta love the energy of a Pharrell song. The ‘Despicable Me’ movie franchise sure does. Below, you can check out an audio snip of the “Yellow Light” joint he dropped and maybe cop as part of the ‘Despicable Me 3’ soundtrack pre-order via the link if ya likes.

Future – “Draco” (DJ Deliver Remix)

DJ Deliver juiced up a cut I wouldn’t normally know much about. This type of stuff is what a DJ can do for real for real; give a joint another life… a listen in some ears that’d not otherwise hear. Case in point, check out this FutureDraco mix-mish-mash Deliver dropped into the inbox.

My new remix of Future’s “Draco.”

R&B: Ne-Yo – “Another Love Song”

Nice up-tempo work by singer/songwriter Ne-Yo. A soulful R&B loosey you’re gonna wanna nod and even dance to. It’s not just “Another Love Song” even if that’s what dude is known for and what the title says.

Seyi Shay – “Yolo Yolo” (Prod. By DJ Coublon) [Video]

Hey, if you only live once (YOLO), this vid captures how you ought to be living it… The coastline, the colors, the colorful people and personalities that come through, and Seyi Shay… all BEAUTIFUL! “Yolo Yolo” is the song, the video, and the reminder that life is for living (and dancing)!
