58D366F2-F893-48B4-A714-3AE77E03C616

Lydia Caesar, who goes by the name Miss Caesar, is a talented singer from New York but she’s pursing her career in St. Louis with her husband Wayne, owner of Sauce Records Global.

She has such a beautiful unique voice that reminds you of that 1990’s era, when every voice was strong and soulful. I had the opportunity to interview her and ask her about her upbringing, her music and plenty more. Check out the interview below.

Chris Brown Concert Lit!

Soo I went to see Chris Brown Sunday July 29 (I know I’m late making this post).
Of course he was GREAT! He started out singing “Heartbreak on a Full Moon”, then went into performing “Juicy Booty”, “Questions”, “High End”, “Yellow Tape” and my FAVORITE song on the album “Hope You Do” which is a melody sample from Donnell Jones “Where I Wanna Be” . I could’ve left the concert after he performed that because I was THAT impressed at that point! BTW if you haven’t already, make sure you check out the review I did on Heartbreak on a Full Moon Album
82C449EC-AE0F-455E-8D74-AAF339611839
After he performed his songs off the Heartbreak on a Full Moon album, he took us back to 06 and sang “Yooo”, his second single off the first album, then “Poppin”. To put the icy on the cake, he performed “Take You Down”, which we all know is the SHIT! Mind you, while he was performing all these songs, he dancing…his ass off. Not only can this man, sing, rap, dance, but he can act and produce. Call him what you want but don’t forget to mention that this man is talented.

Sidebar: I missed 6lack’s performance but I did catch H.E.R. and did good! She’s more of a mellow, chill performer. She didn’t dance much at all, but while she singed, she played her guitar. She performed my ALL TIME favorite sung by her, Best Part. Overall, I liked her performance.
Another sidebar: I went to see C Beezy for the first time in concert back in 06, with Neyo (hence, the feature photo). Crazy thing is, I completely forgot because I went to so many concerts when I was younger. But needless to say…I’ve been a fan!!
Have y’all seen Chris Brown in concert? If so, where at and how did you like it?
Comment below, let me know!

Teyana Taylor “K.T.S.E.” Album Review

Teyana FINALLY released her album and I’ve been slowly but surely getting into. For one, since it was released under the Kanye and he produced by him, I knew it would be a catch 🙄

First off, it didn’t follow the 7 song guidelines that Kanye was so stern on producing. There was 8 songs on the album which is still short, especially since the total album is only 23 minutes long.

Disclaimer: I don’t care for the short album trend. I miss the 12 track or more albums.

Teyana starts off the album with “Manners” which is just a repetitive song but mainly a minute and a half intro to start the album off.

The second song “ Gonna Love Me” is my FAVORITE song, which is about not taking certain things for granted. It gives me soulful Common vibes. 

Hold on, HOLD ONNNN, DON’T LET ME GO. The third song “Issues/Hold On”, is my second favorite track on the album. She talks about working out a relationship and not giving us so easily. This could be a correlation to her marriage with Iman Shumpert.

“Hurry” is a freaky song, just talking about making a move and…fucking pretty much lol.

“Keep your eyes all on this fatty
If you like what you see take your hands and grab it

Yup, that’s self explanatory lol.

“3 Way”, the fifth track on the album is about having a threesome, another self explanatory song and she even got Ty Dolla $ign on the album, which is always a plus.

“Rose In Harlem” is another one of my favorites. It has a sample from the 70’s group The Stylistics in the chorus and she talks about people who are close to you, that be faking and don’t get caught up with them. Since you aren’t sure who’s real or fake, you just gotta watch your back. Also, she references Tupac’s poem “The Rose That Grew From Concrete” with the Stylistics sample– “A Rose In Harlem (sample), Grew out the concrete (Tupac Reference). The song has a hip hop vibe to it.

“Never Would Have Made It” is a reference to Marvin Sapp’s gospel song “Never Would Have Made It.” In this song, she indirectly talks about her daughter.

Lastly, “WTP” which stands for “Work This Pussy” is another naughty song lol but also can be taken as a workout song. 

Teyana has a variety of songs in this album from traditional R & B, to soulful R & B, to freaky dicky songs, to gospel influenced songs. I liked the album, but it could’ve been a tad bit longer as far as the length of the songs and the tracks on the album. I can jam to the whole album buuuuut it could’ve been a little better.  Her first album was VII which had her single “Maybe” did pretty decent and was slightly longer than this album.

I like that Teyana is a woman with many talents such as singing, acting, model, businesswoman; plus she’s a  wife, and a mom. You can’t do nothing BUT respect her.

What are your thoughts about the album? Yay or Nay??

 

Childish Gambino “This Is America” Video, Review and Thoughts

On Saturday, Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover for his government name that he uses for acting purposes, dropped a song and video titled “This Is America” and let me tell ya….it was needed. 

He starts off the video, topless, dancing then BOOM, he shoots a guy with a pillow case covered over his head, in the head. But the way he shoots him is in the stance with one leg stretched in an angle and the other bent slightly. After researching, that stance that he shot the guy in, was part of a Jim Crow caricature dance.  Jim Crow is the practice of segregating black people. With him doing that stance, he wants to show that Jim Crow is still I a thing in America, hence “This Is America” title; the lyrics are “Don’t Catching You Slippin Up.” 

He goes on doing a bunch of trendy dances, with students dressed in uniforms. The dancing was going on in front of us but did you pat attention to the craziness happening behind the dancing? NOPE, that was the point. Dancing could be used as a distraction in America to distract us from what’s really going on. That could be social media in a sense too.

Next scene is a black choir singing, Gambino comes out and shoots them, hinting at the 2015 Charleston Church shooting. Self explanatory message.
 

You see a burning car and a police car with sirens on, people around, and a person on a horse

Gambino continues to dance again with the school kids but in the background, You see a burning car and a police car with sirens on, people around, and a person on a horse. He lifts his hand up acting as if his hand is a gun, then everyone disappears, he lights a blunt. Then the guy he shot with the pillow case over his head, is playing the guitar. Gambino then hops on a car, one of many that are portrayed in the video, and dances until the video goes black. As the video is zooming out, you see SZA sitting on the car. After the video goes black, he is seen running fast because there are people chasing him, then the video ends.

Every time I watched this video, I saw something new. How I perceived this video is this, Americans shoots and kills innocent people, but distracts us from some of those stories by people dancing or new trends on social media. Overall, I like the video, Childish Gambino is good for creating music that makes us sit back and listen.
