Bro!!!! What the F*#%

Sevyn Streeter had been scheduled to perform the national anthem at the Philadelphia 76ers’ season opening game on Wednesday (Oct. 26), but the singer says she was told she couldn’t because she was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt.

New Music: Daniel Caesar feat. Kali Uchis – Get You


Toronto based singer-songwriter Daniel Caesar has remained quiet for much of the past year, but he has returned with “Get You,” a beautiful, soulful new duet that features Kali Uchis. On the song, Caesar is awestruck by the person he’s falling love with, as he repeats, “Who would’ve thought I get you?”

“I met a girl and got very involved. She brought things and feelings out of me that I didn’t know I had. ‘Get You’ is a song of praise to a love I didn’t even feel I deserved at the time,” he tells Billboard. “Being with someone you truly adore and being present enough in the moment that the world literally slows down and you ask yourself how did I stumble into this? I’m always shooting myself in the foot, but I’m in here.”

Listen to Daniel Caesar and Kali Uchis’s “Get You” below.

Video: Yuna – Poor Heart


Talented songstress Yuna returns with a new visual, for her song “Poor Heart,” off the Malaysian singer/songwriter’s latest album Chapters.

The cinematic video doesn’t feature Yuna, but it tells a moving story between two characters.

“Poor Heart tells a story about a ‘forgotten heart’, how it takes two people to make it work again,” says Yuna. “In the short film, a boy finds an abandoned heart in a shack, and immediately sends it over to a lifeless body of a dancer, bringing her to life and you see this incredible talent coming to life once the heart is delivered to her.”

Yuna is currently on the second leg of her U.S. “Chapters Tour,” after returning from a two week sold-out European trek. She is also set to take the stage during Soul Train Weekend 2016 in Las Vegas on November 3 alongside Jazmine Sullivan and Monica for the “Acoustically Speaking” performance, sponsored by Toyota at the House of Blues.
