Kevin McCall Start All over

Kevin McCall is ready to put the past in the past and make amends on his brand new song “Start All Over.” The singer/songwriter/producer wears his heart on his sleeve as he admits that the best remedy for a troubled relationship might just be to try again from the beginning.

Earlier this year Kevin had gone through a tough breakup with model/actress Eva Marcille, could this be his first plea to get her back?

As the year rapidly approaches its closing, we’re still in disbelief that 2015 is right around the corner!

While Tamar Braxton was busy pleading for more love with Future and Teyana Taylor urged us to not come knockin’ while the bed was rockin’, this month also supplied us with unexpected releases from Adrian Marcel, Brandy, Elijah Blake, and more.

So, before you get ready to celebrate Halloween this weekend, take a moment and check out all the treats this month had to offer with our “Best of October – Top 12 Records” list below!

New Music: Willie Taylor – Blast Off

Wilie-Taylor-Blast-Off

It seems as if Brian Angel isn’t the only member of Day 26 working on his own material.

Releasing the new single “Blast Off,” Willie Taylor slows it down for the ladies. Produced by Guitar Boy, the new sensual song has Willie belting out to his lover for the evening.

Singing out, “And I wanna take your body to the moon / Let the countdown begin, you comin’ soon,” the crooner attempts to take listeners to the next level of ecstasy with is lyrical foreplay.

While there’s no word on an official album or mixtape from Willie or if Day 26 will be dropping their third studio album anytime soon, these surprise tracks from both Willie and Brian make us wonder if we’ll be getting some from each member of the group.

Head to outer space with Willie below:
