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!

Mýa – “Down” (Prod. By MyGuyMars) [Video]

Mmm mm mm! And OMG! Is Mýa just gonna stay hot and make hot music forever? Looks like it. And speaking of looks… WOW! Is Mýa actually asking if I am “Down” with visuals like this? That’s a rhetorical question, right?

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.

Sammy Smylez is back! This time he is dolo on this “Say I Do” track, but not in life. Warning: This might tug at your heartstrings; almost enough to make you wish cuffing season was a little bit longer.

Almost… Ha!

Okay, Lion Babe! I see you. Have not seen anything on here since last year around this time from her… I gotta take the hit for that. Rare beauty. Rare talent. Dope on her own. But here, in “Western World,” she is also dope by association. Raekwon on the feature and cosign backs the facts!

Dawn Richard – “sauce” (Prod. By Cole M.G.N. x Hudson Mohawke) [Video] (NSFW)

Oh my damn! Dawn Richard has undergone another full transformation into a “new breed” on us. I would say this video is sexy AF but that just doesn’t do it justice. So hot I am SWEATING! The concepts and the lyrics alone would get a Not Safe For Work rating, but then add the may-as-well-be-naked visuals and wowzerrrrs!

Don’t watch this “sauce” video at your desk. You have been warned.

Check out the Editor’s Note from iTunes on Dawn’s latest album after the jump… after you watch this a couple of times!
