CRZY – “Wanted” feat. Chris Brown

Okay. Not mad at this at all. Plus, being an ’80s music lover I am all about some heavy synth in the music. It channels the vibe of a ‘it has a great beat and I can dance to it’ tune… like the Run-It-Run-It Chris Brown days. Grownish up-tempo jawn that oughta make it easy for a young dude to pull a young Honey onto the floor to move with him; or she can pull the dude. Whatever. Just get into the music and let it get into you.

Nice work CRZY & C-B-R-O-W-N!

(More info on the single and CRZY after the jump.)

It’s the GQ Couples Quiz! Teyana Taylor grills her husband, NBA star Iman Shumpert, all about herself and all the little details that he should already know. Can Iman get all 30 of Teyana’s questions right?

R&B: Elle Varner – “Kinda Love” (Video)

The Elle Varner audio and visuals for this “Kinda Love” is EXACTLY what we been looking & listening for… Smooth, smoky, sultry sauce being poured out. She is steadily telling us what she doesn’t want, and it makes us want more. Wow!

Off that “Ellevation” project (out now). Enjoy.

Eric Roberson – “Leave It In” (Video)

I’ve known many stallions. But baby, you’re a unicorn!

Hold up! Is that Jill Scott? Nope, but the vivacious Laurin Talese is nowhere near a disappointment! Ham mercy (hams & yams!!).

You better talk that psychadellic slick talk to her then, Erro! Matter of fact… sing that! That way, she can’t resist. Chances are she’ll let you “Leave It In” (yeeeaaaah, freaky-freaky-now, like THAT)!

“Leave It In” off of the “LNS” album. Available exclusively in “The Process” at www.EricRobersonMusic.com

Oh, Eric means he is leaving his heart in (wink). Got it… And, for the love of love, somebody give that man some ‘more cowbell’ (dope)!

Jaafar Jackson – “Got Me Singing” (Video)

Look out now! Jermaine Jackson’s boy doing the family name right on this jawn, ain’t he? Nice! And talk about ‘production value’… but no wonder the visuals turn out like this… when the YouTube credits look like they should run at the end of a movie in a theater.

Comedy: Seth & Rihanna Go ‘Day Drinking’ (Video)

Okay, ‘Car Karaoke’ is cute and all… but yoooo… getting Ri-Ri out for a drink or three… and getting her properly saucy… Mmmm, imagine the possibilities.

Seth and Rihanna spend a day drinking at The Jane Hotel, where they do things like drink Rihanna-themed cocktails, dish out advice to one another and give Seth a Fenty Beauty makeover.
– Late Night with Seth Meyers

On the low, Seth got her with that ‘nut milk’ comment. Heh heh. But she came back with that ‘blow your wife away’ though.

India Arie – “Steady Love” (Video)

The number of people who would argue with me when I declared India Irie and David Banner the ‘Most Adorable Keep-It-Real & GOALS Couple EVER’… absolutely ZERO! I am not going to even do one search to see if they are actually ‘shipped’ in real life. Nope.

I am just going to live in the beautiful moments this video creates. And what a wonderful song. And that warrior-in-the-streets x king-in-the-sheets yearning… AND all that body (ma THICK y’all, woowee!) and bright smiling that India is hitting us with… Maaaan, we gone ALL get pregnant!

Check out “Steady Love” off India’s LP “Worthy” (out now).

Jhené Aiko – “Triggered” (Freestyle) [Video]

You are no friend of mine, motherf**ker.

She’ll fall back eventually. But for now, li’l sexy Jhené Aiko is “Triggered” and we just need to stay out her way… especially whoever the mf’er is who put her in this mind state.

Just… just give her some space. But enjoy the flow though. Sweet and spicy sauce!

DJ Yogi – A Soulful Tape (Insomniac Show #53) [Mixtape]

He’s back! Well, he never left. To be honest, I have been lax in keeping up with the output of the homie DJ Yogi (Yogi, Yogi, Yogi). My bad. But dude stays putting up dope mix shows like this on the Mixcloud. If you are on that, you should follow him there. One of the best on that platform #RESPECT #ALLCAPS #nocap

Anderson .Paak – “Come Home” feat. Andre 3000

This is the collab that will draw most heads to the “Ventura” LP. My opinion. But probably facts by now. In fact, I’m betting you are going to give this a spin just to hear 3 Stacks go in on the feature for Anderson.
