DREAMCATCHER Releases “Summer Holiday” Special EP

The queens of concept (my opinion) have returned with their special EP “Summer Holiday.” The title track, BEcause, is just as you imagined a summer track from the group would convey: creepy, chilling, and thought-provoking. The song is beautifully produced from instruments to vocals. Catchy hook, and especially haunting bridge with SuA’s ending. The music video? My god! All I can say is DREAMCATCHER has … Continue reading DREAMCATCHER Releases “Summer Holiday” Special EP

Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion ‘WAP’: Here’s the thing…

Let me start off by saying I get it, there are gatekeepers in the music industry and unfortunately, women are pushed to be sexual in order to sell. But seriously? Couldn’t Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion rap about something else? Or maybe make the song more tasteful? WAP, which by now I’m sure everyone knows what that stands for, cannot be played in mainstream … Continue reading Cardi B feat. Megan Thee Stallion ‘WAP’: Here’s the thing…

Album Review: Koda Kumi’s W Face ~Outside~

Gosh. I can’t remember the last time I listened to a Koda Kumi album. Actually, I think the last one I purchased and listened to was JAPONESQUE.

Maybe it’s … Continue reading Album Review: Koda Kumi’s W Face ~Outside~

Album Review: Aquarius by Tinashe

If you’re looking for mid-tempo, slowed down music, with a 90’s r&b influence and smooth harmonies, then Tinashe’s debut album pretty much sums that up. Nothing is overly done or out of place, Aquarius provides a relaxing atmosphere when in your comfort zone, just as much as it can be a club favorite. The title track signifies the direction in which the singer is headed, kicking things … Continue reading Album Review: Aquarius by Tinashe

Single Review: “Abing Abing” by ORANGE CARAMEL

So I’m not usually a fan of Orange Caramel’s cutey cutey music, or any artist who does that kind of concept, but I must admit I’m addicted to their song Abing abing. Even if it’s ice-cream. I think the beat is energetic, as their sound usually is, and their hook is catchy. It’s no wonder some are referring to the Baskin Robbins influenced track as … Continue reading Single Review: “Abing Abing” by ORANGE CARAMEL

Toni Braxton and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds joining musical forces to create an album, is a dream come true for most fans, including moi. I love their voices and have been longing for their reunion.
