New Music: Maurice Moore – Ready

Maurice Moore Ready

Rising young R&B artist Maurice Moore is growing in front of our eyes and ears. Continuing to deliver solid material over this past year, the Canadian singer/songwriter brings us one of his most personal moments yet, while keeping the music upbeat and inventive.

As a young man, Moore has to experience a little more before he realizes that the girl of his dreams was there all along, but when he does, he lets her know that he is “Ready.”

“One of the most cruel games the universe can play with you, is bringing the right person into your life at the wrong time. ‘Ready’ tells that story,” says Moore. “I was introduced to the woman of my dreams at 16 and I fell in love, but as an early teenager I still had a lot of growing to do and made a lot of stupid mistakes. I wasn’t ready. Some people never get a second chance with the one they love, but if you are one of the lucky few that do… make sure that you’re ‘Ready’.”

The synth-heavy, jazz-inspired production by TheAuracle, West Metro and Hunts is balanced with Moore’s reflective writing and a Martin Payne sample from the classic sitcom Martin.

Rick Ross Previews New Mariah Carey Featured Single “Can’t Let Go”



When we said before that Rick Ross was calling on all the R&B MVP’s for his upcoming album Black Market, we weren’t kidding! This time, the MMG Boss has teamed up once again with the Butterfly Queen herself, Mariah Carey.

Serving as their second go-round as a team (with their first being MC’s 2012 single “Triumphant”), the duo take on a re-imaging of MiMi’s 1991 single “Can’t Let Go,” which peaked at number 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

With smooth flowing bars from Rozay and sweet sounding coos of the original lyrics from Mariah, the revamped version of “Can’t Let Go” sounds like it’s going to be a promising single to follow behind Ross’ Chris Brown featured “Sorry.”

Take a listen to a snippet of the new track below:

Chris Brown Drops Unexpected ‘Before the Party’ Mixtape!


Well look at what the day is bringing!

It might be “Black Friday,” but there’s definitely nothing dark about today. Earlier we brought you the visual for Chris Brown‘s newest release “Fine By Me,” and now the multi-talented artist has surprised his fans with a brand new mixtape to serve as a holdover for his upcoming album, Royalty.

Titled Before the Party, fans of the singer can get their fix with an incredible 34-track project. Royalty – which was pushed back to a December 18 release – might have a lot to live up to being that Before the Party hosts features from a few of his friends including Rihanna, Fetty Wap, Kelly Rowland, Tyga, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, and French Montana. While the line-up for features is, of course, great, what’s even more interesting is the fact that majority of the 34-tracks are just Breezy himself.
