Performance: Erykah Badu – “Didnt’Cha Know” (Video)

Erykah letting us know it’s gonna be alright. With an intimate mini-concert performance from out the house; looks like from the living room. The band is masked up, but Ms. Badu is going ‘mask off’ in every way. Shouting out to her folks, including her babies’ fathers.

I like it. Badu The Badoula, and her energy, is just so dope. Give thanks and enjoy the clip!

R&B/Soul: Nicole Bus – “Rain” (Video)

Apropos that we had John Forte on here a bit ago. This Nicole Bus makes me think of his song “P.B.E.” (Powerful Beautiful Excellent). Because she is! Just watch this “Rain” video, and see why she is set to reign over there with Roc Nation. It’s a good look for her and the label. Peep.

Nicole’s album “Kairos” is out now!

H.E.R. – “Sometimes”

“Sometimes” ‘it don’t go your way. Facts.

And “Sometimes” a song can capture the sentiment of that and make your soul clap AND make you wanna holler ‘amen!’ Sure Jigga can make the ‘song cry’… But leave it to H.E.R. to make a song to make you FEEL like the song gets how YOU feel.

R&B: Will E – “Wet Dreams”

So, I was watching a video featuring fine azz Kinigra Deon, and she had a song playing under the clip at one point… perfect for her… “Wet Dreams” (by Indy’s own Indie R&B artist, Will E). Even more perfect, she linked it in the credits. Ensuring that she shared it with the world. Paying it forward, I embed the stream above for the love (e.g. stream for FREE). On top of that, follow the link below to iTunes if you want to cop your own copy.

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).

James Corden Welcomes Céline Dion To ‘Carpool Karaoke’ (Video)

I have to believe Céline Dion has the most fun spirit, I mean that “Ashes” video she did for “Deadpool 2” alone, right? But that is also a beautiful song, like most all her work.

Well, put the fabulous, fun, uber-talent in a ‘Carpool Karaoke’ why dont’cha, James. I am here for it!

James Corden heads to Las Vegas for a Carpool Karaoke made for CBS primetime and calls on Céline Dion to help him get through town. In addition to singing her classics, Céline proves she has a song for any moment, James teaches Céline “Baby Shark” and the two give away pairs of Céline’s precious shoes. And stay for a Titanic-sized end to their afternoon together.

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.
