Stupid dope dance refix of the Marvin Gaye “Sexual Healing!” Beatnick & K-Salaam get extra kudos for this. And playing it might get you up and into your go to two-step wherever you are, so listen with caution. Good times ahead.
(And that artwork… gotta love it!)
NPR’s music documentary series, “Noteworthy,” is up & running. Great treatment of its subjects. Kind of short, but you get good content on modern R&B-ster Miguel, the first subject.
Watch as host Jason King interviews Miguel at home. Discussion goes from the choice of wallpaper to working with Salaam Remi, to times and modes of inspiration to… Well, watch. It’s less than 15 minutes.
Oh yeah. We effs with Ta-ku something heavy already over here. But this “Love Somebody” is doing nothing but locking us into long-term fandom. Dope music and vocalization. Great choice to lure the world over to copping the EP “(m)edian” out now.
Jesse Boykins III might make you wait a year for some new music, but it’s always on time. Interesting features for his “Bartholomew” mixtape – Audio Push, Melanie Fiona, Trinidad James, Bridget Kelly, Dej Loaf and more. Definitely an R&B plate, but with something extra in the gravy.
Take note. When we say dream island vacay getaway, we mean THIS! Daaaayum! Lovely ladies, lovely surroundings, lovely libations… it’s all love. So much and a “Little Bit More” in this video. Of course, I hope a certain liquor maker kicked a “Little Bit More” over to Jidenna for those product shots in the video.
Yooooo. James Corden got Missy Elliott to ride along and get in some songs for his Car Karaoke.
See you’d believe that and that’d be a cool enough show. But what Corden ACTUALLY did for this ep is get Missy Misdemeanor AAAAAND First Lady Michelle Obama in to ride shotgun. Off the meat hook HAM!
Phontigallo + Er Ro = Phonte + Eric Roberson = Tigallerro. Got it? Good! Like this music they are putting out together – good. The sorta self-titled project “Tigallerro” is due out July 22, 2016. But wasn’t it nice for them to let loose this single for now. “It’s So Easy” to please us true fans, right? Links below. Stream above.
Marvelous continues his love-for-Women tributes as he drops this Madlib-produced track entitled “Sade” aka Letters From A Hethen. This is the smooth jazzy like sound that we’ve come accustomed to hear from Mr. Marvelous. The song explains what guys want to say to their lady when she’s upset and not understanding that he is not a normal Man and is doing what he can to be a gentleman and a street dude. He jumps on this unreleased Madlib track like the 2 were in the studio together and the beat was made for him. So sit back relax and listen to the sounds of Mr. Marvelous.
Just say you will… Come Through And Chill…
And, well, you know. Wow, Miguel’s trying to set your agenda for the next summer rainy night, isn’t he? HOT HOT HOT new jawn from Miguel produced by Salaam Remi entitled “Come Through And Chill.”
(So, y’all can skip the Netflix and fronting from now on. You’re welcome.)

Okay, this is hot… but Sean gave the caption text folks HELL trying to keep up, didn’t he? HAHAAAA! Great late night performance by Jhené and Big Sean of their collabo joint “On The Way.”
