R&B: Ne-Yo – “Coming With You” (Video)

Definite banger for the dance clubs worldwide. Can see this “Coming With You” by Neyo jumping off internationally easily. Nice scenery in this vid, too though. Lots of eye candy featured at a day (and night) at the beach. The single is off Neyo’s forthcoming “Non-Fiction” LP (due out on iTunes on January 27, 2015). You can put your order in (and get some tracks) now via the link below.

R&B: D’Angelo – She’s Always In My Hair (14KT Remix)

Nah, not yet HouseShoes. What’s up though?

I’ve been holding onto this for damn near two years.
A lot on deck from 14KT and Street Corner this year.
Stay tuned.
HouseShoes

Well, well. A remix of “She’s Always In My Hair” from D’Angelo… by 14KT… nice. Thanks.

John Legend – “Glory” feat. Common (Video)

Freedom is a religion to us… When it go down, woman and man up!
Common

There have certainly been times when the music made the movie. Now, while “Selma” has a powerful enough historical civil rights story to tell in itself, a powerful John Legend song (featuring Common) can only enhance the experience. Watch the video. It is not a trailer, but the visuals may make you want to see this in theaters all the more.

Ameriie – “Mustang”

It’s Ameriie with an extra ‘i’ now? Well, Dionne Warwick played around with her name too. Okay, I guess. As long as the music is still fi-yaaah, who cares, right?

(And Miss A being hella sexy doesn’t hurt at all!)

Listen to “Mustang” on the ‘Cloud stream above.

Jeremih Returns On The Bus Through His Chicago Neighborhood (Video)

Incredible. Jeremih was steady going to school, just living day-to-day on the Southside of Chicago… and already had the hit record! In this vid, J takes us back to his old stomping grounds. We meet his family, walk through his old hood, and end up catch the same bus he used to catch.

(Footnote: He hasn’t rode a bus since.)

Good viewing. Hit play.

R&B: Poo Bear – “Work For It” feat. Tyga x Justin Bieber (Video)

Yep. I’ve posted his music before. And as long as Pooh Bear keeps putting ‘em out like this… will continue to do so. Good music, this “Work For It” (featuring Tyga). Lots of pop star cameo power dropped in this visual, too. Can’t hate the player for that, right? Ha.

(And the Eye Candy in there. Nice. Won’t hate the player for that!)

R&B/Soul: Stacy Barthe – ‘Angel’

It’s not every day a relatively new artist can successfully execute a remake of a classic song. Stacy Barthe is not your everyday singer & songwriter so I knew she would kill this cover of one of Anita Baker’s signature records. I’m definitely a fan of Stacy Barthe’s music so it’s a dope surprise she has more amazing work coming with her first official major release. She’s signed to John Legend’s new label ‘Homeschool’ & the new project ‘BEcoming’ due next year in 2015. Check out snippets of the upcoming album after the jump below….

Wale feat. Jeremih – “The Body” (Video)

Brand new video for metro D.C. area native Wale’s new single ‘The Body” featuring the most in demand Chicago singer Jeremih. I’ve said it hundreds of times before that Jeremih’s unique voice & sound has been helping many of his collaborators crank out hit singles.  Artists have been getting more assists from him than Chris Paul in a Clippers game.  I’m definitely digging the classy vibe & look of this new clip. Look for Wale’s new project ‘The Album About Nothing” to drop March 31st 2015.

Jean Grae – “underneathu” (Video)


Jean Grae is always doing something creative & in this new video she takes it back to the 80s like a late night public access television show performance that’s ‘blacker than black’ with a EXTREMELY high light skinned host played by Adam Mansbach. Hahaaaa! Check out this interesting new video for the Prince-inspired ‘underneathu’ that appears on her album #5 featuring Jean Grae & her band ‘The Everybody’s Pregnant’. Yeah I know…. the name for her band is wild as hell.

Joell Ortiz x Sam Smith – “Stay With Me” (Yaowa Remix)

Joell Ortiz - JAYFORCE.COM !The Brooklyn Puerto Rock & 1/4 of the SlaughterHouse gang, Joell Ortiz, links up with the Heatmakerz production team to give his take on the popular ‘Stay With Me’ record by London singer & songwriter Sam Smith. It appears Joell Ortiz has been knocking out a gang of remixes from popular Top 40 records as of late which could just be the setup for his upcoming Yaowa Nation EP. (Side Note: As an Oakland Raiders fan I really wish everyone would stop using the term “Nation”….There’s only 1 Nation & that’s the #RaiderNation). But we don’t want Joell Ortiz to stop giving us that heat though. YAOWAAA!

R&B: Maimouna Youssef – “Stay” (Prod. By Joe D) [Video]

“These are hard times to find love…”

All ‘cuffing season’ jokes aside, Maimouna Youssef is right. Feel the words and experience the visualization as you hear the love[sick] song that expresses her longing for love; a struggle against her core being to become the kind of woman a man she longs for could love. This is “Stay” (produced by Joe D). Deep.

And she is some kind of sexy. That don’t hurt!

R&B/Soul: Esta – “Can’t Wait” featuring SPZRKT

They say Patience is a virtue, but some things in life are just hard to wait on.  Like waiting on food at a restaurant when you are hungry or waiting in line to get into a popular club.  One thing I know a lot of men can agree on is they can’t wait to see that special lady in their lives if they have said lady.

Well the DJ/Producer Esta (Soulection DJ) teams up with singer SPZRKT explaining this nicely with the track you guessed it named “Can’t Wait”.  This track will have guys thinking they can sing to their ladies.  I suggest you just play the song by Esta (featuring SPZRKT). Fellas trust me, I already attempted and the lady enjoyed the song more! Check out SPZRKT new album BONFIRE.
