Chantè Moore – “Something To Remember” (Video)

Your pleasure is my only mission…

If imagining Chantè Moore say that to you doesn’t make your day (hell, your LIFE), I don’t know if there is a way to make you enjoy this “Something To Remember” video from her. Easily the HOTTEST thing said by arguably one of the HOTTEST women still doing her thing in R&B. Whew!

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!)

The PlayList (DJ Jazzy Jeff et. al.) – “1995” feat. Glenn Lewis [Video]

Yeah. It seems only right that DJ Jazzy Jeff’s PlayList Retreats bear smooth tasty fruit like this. A taste of the full plate “Chasing Goosebumps.” So so dope! The soulful singing of Glenn Lewis over a R&B’d out track. Perfect.

(More on The PlayList after the jump.)

R&B/Soul: Musiq Soulchild – “Simple Things” (Video)

We talk about taking it back to a ‘Golden Era’ for Hip-Hop, but how about R&B like this? Not gone go ‘old man’ in this post, this new Musiq Soulchild jawn is that good soulful how-it-should-be music. The instrumentation and vocals. Dope! Video for “Simple Things” off the forthcoming “Feel the Real” album.

R&B: 112 – “Strawberry”

She likes the spice of life. I know the flavor very well.

112 taking it up tempo but no less smooth. The boys from ATL are back. On their grown men with this “Strawberry” letter.

112 – STRAWBERRY

Paloma Ford – “Waves” feat. Dave East

Wowwww, Paloma Ford is really channeling Miss Jackson – mainly because she’s NASTY – on this track! And all that stuff she’s singing about doing that she’s offering to ‘make a movie’ about… Dave East (with the feature bars) seems to be volunteering to ummm… co-star with her. Ha! Check out “Waves.”

Snoop Dogg Welcomes Miguel To The GGN Set (Video)

You know an artist spends a career trying to get to that ‘one name level’ right? To get so big in the game, in the fandom overall that people know and call them by one name. Not Patti LaBelle but Patti. Not Michael Jackson but Michael. Not Prince Rogers Nelson but Prince. Well, Miguel came out the gate on that ish! And he is living the rep already. Seems only right, Miguel being from the West-West and all, that Snoop had him over to GGN to talk about his career, coming up and more.

Miguel needs no introduction. The mononymous singer/songwriter has carved out his own lane over the past five years with sexy radio hits, including the Grammy-winning single, “Adorn.”

After three infectious albums, marked by sounds that drew comparisons to Prince, Miguel is truly making the case to take the crown as the king of new wave R&B. As 2017 progresses, he’s coming back with a steady stream of funky new music, including “2 Lovin U,” that’s sure to climb the charts.

To celebrate its rollout, Miguel stopped by the GGN studio, where he played his latest tracks for Snoop and the two chopped it up on everything from performing for the fans to fanning out themselves.

But why was the Stormy Fronts part so short though?? And why was she Stormy Trooper this time?

SZA – “CTRL” (Album Stream)

You peeped that “Drew Barrymore” video we posted on here the other day, right? That single was off the “CTRL” album from SZA. If we had the whole album to share, we would. Sooooo… look out belooow!

SZA – CTRL (ALBUM)

Terrace Martin Presents The Pollyseeds – “Up & Away”

Another one from The Pollyseeds? Yes indeed. This is some good riding music; actually expected to hear an emcee start riding this track out of nowhere. Just has a smooth emcee’s feel. Maybe somebody will rap over a ‘remix’ or something. Still dope if they do or don’t. Check it out! You can pre-order “Sounds Of Crenshaw, Vol. 1” today.

Jhené Aiko – “While We’re Young” (Prod. By Fisticuffs) [Video]

Anybody remember the movie “50 First Dates” with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore? Well, Aiko is doing the Drew all up in this. Kinda clever. Tell you boo that we should be making memories “While We’re Young”… to have good times to talk about when we are old (or tomorrow, if you have short-term memory issues like Jhené in this visual today).

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.)

R&B: Jhené Aiko – “Hello Ego” feat. Chris Brown (Prod. Dot Da Genius x Fisticuffs)

Jhené Aiko Chilombo has done it again! Um, “Hello Ego”… we mean, she and Chris Brown – with the production of Dot Da Genius and an assist from Fisticuffs – did it again. You don’t just go and make an R&B hit by yourself, Aiko. You know?

(She knows.)

Showtime Will Debut Its Whitney Houston Biopic “Can I Be Me” On August 26th (Trailer)

Lifetime shot its shot (with plenty of shots) at telling the story of Whitney. Lots of people were not feeling it… at all. Let’s see how Showtime’s gonna do. Not too bad by comparison, given this “Whitney Houston: Can I Be Me?” trailer. It seems like the film will be intriguing, at least; hopefully, true-to-life. Whitney was a part of the lives of a couple of generations who felt like they knew her and were always wanting to know more. If the story is going to be about her, let it be about her, not about ‘ratings’ (stepping down from soapbox).

Understand legendary superstar Whitney Houston’s story and what lied behind one of the greatest voices of our time. Don’t miss the premiere of the SHOWTIME Documentary Whitney. “Can I Be Me” on Saturday, August 26th at 9PM ET/PT.

R&B: Teyana Taylor – “Drippin” feat. Migos (Video) [NSFW]

Know how sometimes we feel a need to admonish you to watch the entire video? We’re not gonna do that for this Teyana Taylor video. You don’t wanna watch, then don’t. Haaaa! Visuals for “Drippin” (featuring Migos). Sooooo damn HOT, and as Tey is naked in paint for ost of the vid, this is definitely Not Safe For Work!

Mélat – “Negn” (Video)

Mélat is, once again, so sultry while being subdued. It’s paradoxical, but trust it is appreciated. Talented, tantalizing… the video just highlights it. Check out “Negn” to understand why Mélat gets such props and press on here. And the link to the full length is included below.

More. Much more. After the jump… a personal narrative about her name, her album “MéVen” revealing another trait of Mélat’s, and herself – vulnerabity, bravely on display.

(Sung in the tongue of Amharic. Lyrics can be found here.)

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.

NE-YO – ANOTHER LOVE SONG
