New Music: Elijah Blake – Black Whiskey

Elijah Blake Black Whiskey

Fresh off the release of his ‘Drift‘ EP, rising R&B singer/songwriter Elijah Blake returns with more new music for his adorning fans. Blake picks up the tempo with the retro inspired jam titled “Black Whiskey,” as he sings about a lost love that has him reflecting on how good things once were.

“You and I used to be mean more than just the first few letters in ‘unity,’ / Some case of amnesia when I see, but don’t know you, you don’t know me,” he sings over the groovy production by Trakmatik.

Elijah has been incredibly consistent with all of his releases, and with freebies like this, we are getting more and more excited for his debut album Songs About Melody, which is due out next year.

Video: Tamar Braxton feat. Future – ‘Let Me Know’


Tamar Braxton wasted no time coming back strong with the hot new single “Let Me Know.” The R&B diva now premieres the music video for the Future-assisted song, which is the lead single off her forthcoming third studio album.

The blond haired songstress gets flirty with the camera in the glamorous visual, which she directed herself. Tamar switches up her look several times and even covers her naked body in glitter.

The record samples Aaliyah’s classic song “At Your Best (You Are Love).” “I’m definitely a fan of Aaliyah,” Tamar said of the late singer. “She was one of my good friends because her uncle [Barry Hankerson] and my sister [Toni] were affiliated at the time, so I spent a lot of time with her.”

Tamar is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to last year’s Love and War. The new season of “Tamar & Vince” premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on WE tv.

Check out her new video below!

New Music: Jamie Foxx – Ain’t My Fault

jamie foxx aint my fault

While last month Jamie Foxx came outta nowhere with the surprise single “Party Ain’t A Party” featuring 2 Chainz, which has unfortunately lead to a lawsuit with another artist who previously released the same single, the multi-talented star has now released another brand new single titled, “Ain’t My Fault,” this one intended for Urban AC radio formats.

Over smooth, percussion led production, Foxx gets captivated by a beautiful, confident woman, who he becomes spellbound by in the club, and there is only going to be one outcome for their evening.

“It ain’t my fault, just blame it on the dress that you bought / I blame it on the way that you walked in the club, and stole my heart,” Jamie softly sings.

While, there has been no official announcement of a new album on the way, with two songs out now, we can only assume the Hollywood star has something cooking up, and we can’t wait for more! In addition to his new music, Jamie can be seen starring in the new remake of Annie, hitting theaters on December 19.

Watch: Apple Presents “Meet the Musician” with Tinashe


With her debut album in stores Tinashe took part in Apple’s free “Meet the Musician” event while she was in NYC.  The sit-down Q&A was moderated by Hot 97’s Miss Info and gave fans the chance to get up-close-and-personal with the rising R&B star, and have some of their own questions answered live.

During her chat with Miss Info, the Cali native spoke about the amazing feeling of finally releasing her debut LP Aquarius, why it is different than any of her other releases, her multiple talents as a singer, songwriter, producer, and dancer; and how that all plays into her creative process.

Additionally, Tinashe talked about still living at home with her family, and recording many of the album’s songs from her bedroom studio, which she revealed never got awkward – even when she was singing some rather risque lyrics. She spoke about the small group of people she truly accepts constructive criticism from, some of her bigger dreams for her career, and dream collabo.
