New Music: The-Dream feat. Fabolous – Summer Body

the-dream-fabolous-summer-body

We all want to get-right for the summer. So, if Kanye’s ‘workout plan’ hasn’t begun working for you yet, let the hitmaker himself–The Dream, advance your snap back.

The ATL singer/songwriter connects with Brooklyn’s own Fabolous for the catchy new collaboration, “Summer Body,” which is ready for summer ’17 pool parties.

On the new anthem, Dream sings about his preference for a 26-year-old “with a fat ass.” “You know just what to do / You know what I like / You know just how to be, you know I got a type,” he sings.

F.A.B.O. joins Dream rhyming about a goal-oriented girl who likes to have fun. “She put in work for it, she get to twerk for it / She had to grind for it, she get to wine for it,” he raps. “She accomplish anything she put her mind toward / She a dime that you ain’t have to pay a dime for it.”

The-Dream is currently prepping for the release of his next project, which is expected out soon.

Adrian-Marcel-Breakfast-Club

Adrian Marcel gets open in one of his most honest interviews yet.

The R&B singer recently stopped by Power 105.1 in New York City to speak with Angela, Charlamagne and Envy about the release of his debut album, GMFU (Got Me Fucked Up).

As fans know, the project has been a long time in the making, and the Oakland native basically had to part ways with his label (Republic Records) to finally release the album on his terms. During their conversation, Marcel shared some personal and inside information on the music industry. He talked about the ways the label was trying to control and persuade him to do things that weren’t his choices, and then not fully backing them when the time was right.

Adrian also shared some of the insight that his mentor, music legend Raphael Saadiq, gave to him when he first signed his record deal. Additionally, he spoke about the album title, putting it together, and how he has been touching fans personally to promote it.

Furthermore, he touched on his family upbringing, celebrating his African American roots, feelings on the Warriors winning the NBA Championship again, and more.

To close out his visit, Adrian gave ‘The Breakfast Club’ a rare live acoustic performance of his sultry song, “No Limit.”

PressPlay: 25 R&B Videos To Kick Off Summer

R&B Videos Summer

Summer is here and in case you were wondering, I’m just as excited as a kid on Christmas morning. Though each season holds its own weight in my book, there’s just something about summer that can make anyone feel their best and want to shine every chance they can. While everyone has their different reasons for feeling so good when summer creeps around, we here at ThisIsRnB will always give some of the credit to our playlist of summer R&B songs for that overwhelming emotion that the season brings out of us.

Although today’s R&B artists can still deliver a solid feel good sound for summer (i.e. DJ Khaled’s Rihanna and Bryson Tiller-assisted “Wild Thoughts“), there’s no denying that the majority of the top summer vibes came from the ’90s and early 2000s. Likewise, those same artists were all about making videos to match that same vibe and as a result, turned each summer into the biggest party that we would experience all year-long. So as an ode to those tracks and inspiration to make the next few months the best of your year, we decided to set you up with a dope list of R&B videos that are sure to set your summer off proper.

Excited about letting the top back, pulling out the shawt shawts, and getting tipsy on the rooftop? Jump into these 25 nostalgic summer videos to hype you up for your first day out (no Gucci) this season.
