Emerging singer/songwriter/producer Rashad kicks off the unofficial beginning of summer with two brand new releases, off his forthcoming album The Quiet Loud. The Columbus, Ohio native gets reflective on the infectious R&B burner “I Thought About Leaving,” as he sings regrets of previously thinking about breaking up with his lady.
“She’s been good to me, the whole wide world can see, a fool to break her heart,” he sings.
Rashad has also released a B-Side entitled, “Turn Down,” with a screwed up feel that is a smooth slow burner within itself.
The Quiet Loud is due out this summer. Take a listen to his first taste of the album below:
Cleveland bred R&B crooner Antoine Dunn is prepping for the release of his sophomore album, the follow-up to his independently successful debut Truth of the Matter. Now signed to TopNotch Music, the singer/songwriter has returned with the project’s first single “I’m Gonna Love You.”
The heartfelt R&B ballad finds Dunn promising to treat his woman with the love and respect that she deserves. “This time, I’m gonna love you, this time / Even despite, all of my past that I denied, I’m gonna love you,” he sings.
Antoine’s new album is due out this summer, check out the video for his new single below:
Lianne La Havas has returned with the sultry and smooth new single “Unstoppable,” which is the first release off her anticipated sophomore album Blood, due out July 31. Included on a limited edition 7″ vinyl release of the single is a brand new remix of the song by French Kiwi Juice (FKJ).
Equally as infectious (possibly even more) than the original, the remix delivers a breezy vibe with lush percussion that is perfectly complimented by La Havas’ vocal. Lianne wrote the record to help to repair a relationship that she had ended.
“Our polarities shifted around, there’s nothing else left holding us down,” sings the 25-year-old. “It’s just gravitational, we are unstoppable.”

The unofficial start to summer seems like the absolute perfect time to introduce you to emerging Australian soul singer Josué. The Sydney native has been grinding on the live circuit for several years with his band, but now he is gearing up for the release of his debut EP ‘Bad News,’ due out in July.
Leading the project is an incredibly infectious single, perfect for the warm weather, amply titled “Summer Time,” featuring MC Billy Green. The song’s groove will stick right to your bones with it’s sweet soulful melody, surrounded by Josue’s smooth vocals and Billy Green’s slick verse.
“When it’s hot outside I’m thinking about summer time / When it’s cold outside I’m wishing it’s summer time / When I’m next to you I’m thinking about summer time,” he sings.
Enjoy the good weather with the feel-good single below:
Motown’s Mila J, now known as MILA, has teamed up with buzzing L.A. duo BC KINGDOM on a brand new project that combines MILA’s smoky vocals with Logan and Zuo’s progressive instrumentals. The result is Press Start, a six-track EP of sumptuously crafted tracks that range from the seductive bounce of “Play” to the experimental “Ninja” to the delicate “Sad N Blu.”
“This has been a fun and liberating experience. I was able to tap into a deeper, darker side of myself that I’ve been wanting the world to see and hear,” explained MILA. “BC KINGDOM understood where I wanted to go sonically and the chemistry with them was undeniable. We blended so well with one another. Expect more from this musical marriage.”
“Press Start is just the beginning for us,” Logan and Zuo reveal. “We had an amazing time recording these songs with MILA; we experimented with so much music and so many different sounds. It is truly the perfect mesh of both of our worlds. We always wanted to work with a female artist and being LA natives, we knew MILA was the perfect fit. Her voice and tone are so distinct that it added another dimension to the songs. This is the perfect up-and-down love story soundtrack for the summer.”

This past Tuesday during his visit to “The Tonight Show” Jamie Foxx gave a hilarious impersonation of John Legend while playing the game “Wheel of Impressions” with Jimmy Fallon. The song he had to sing as Legend was the famous jingle for Toys R Us, and he basically nailed it, at least in our opinion.
Well, as the clip went viral John Legend saw it, and now as a playful response he has recorded a video of himself singing the song!
At the end he even takes a little jab at Foxx by singing “hallelujah” in reference to his questionable performance of the national anthem at the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight.

Trigga takes a break from seducing the ladies with the bedroom bangers and keeps it street as he praises his other favorite thing.
“It feel like my lady is the money / I wish I could have a baby with the money / I can’t leave the house without her on me,” he sings.
