Video: Jacob Latimore – Climb


Jacob Latimore returns with the music video for his new single “Climb.”

The 19-year-old singer/actor has formed his own independent company after parting ways with RCA Records, and is currently putting the finishing touches on a brand new EP, which is due out in early 2016.

Looking to shed his young image, Latimore sings out to his girl about reaching new heights with their love and the pleasure he receives from being intimate. Filled with steamy scenes and sexy dance sequences, Jacob is on his way to being a new R&B heartthrob.

“Ohh it’s just us, ain’t in no rush / Wrap your legs around my waist under the covers / Let’s make love, til’ sun comes up,” he sings while getting close to his girl.

We’re somebody different when we’re with our best friend. We’re somebody different when we’re with our mom. We’re somebody different when we’re with our siblings. This is just one of my many faces on my mixtape and I’m just excited to share it with everybody, because people have no idea that I have that side.”

Derulo is currently promoting his single “Get Ugly” which will receive its late night debut next Thursday, February 18 on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

New mom, Teyana Taylor is wasting no time getting back to the music. Less than two months since giving birth to her daughter with Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert, the singer debuts a video for “Touch Me.”  The track was an interlude from her 2015 ’90s-inspired mixtape The Cassette Tape 1994.

Indie: Newcomer Unica Releases Video for New Single “Real One”


Indie artist Unica is here to make you reminisce about the fun times of the ’90s with her brand new single “Real One.”

Premiering the single with the summery visuals, the up-and-coming R&B singer-songwriter hits up the park with her man, spends time at the beach, and dances against a graffiti painted wall.

The song itself is a work of meaningful art with real content obtained from real life experiences. Unica explains, “The song ‘Real One’ to me is about finding that down to earth, best friend, type of love. The thugs, OG’s, playas, that shit is played out!… I want to find something more in a guy. Something real.”

With the lack of female artists from Toronto in the game, Unica just wants to continue to inspire other female artists to come out and express themselves the best way they know. She will release her next single “B.A.E.” in early summer 2016.

Check out her video for “Real One” below.

Beyoncé Gets Us Into Coordination With New Single + Video “Formation”!


Got damn, got damn, got damn!

Beyoncé is byke and she is here to play with NOT ONE OF YOU!

Right in time for her Super Bowl performance with Coldplay and Bruno Mars, the eldest child of Matthew and Celestine Knowles is here to give y’all the business on the track with absolutely no f*cks given. Delivering a Southern-banger titled “Formation,” the cornbread and collard green loving Texas diva gave the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced track exactly what it needed.

Co-written by Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, the song was released along with its own New Orleans shot visual. Paying homage to her background, black heritage, and country upbringing, Queen Bey encourages us to slay before we get eliminated.

Hosting a cameo from Blue Ivy herself, shots of Bey on top of a cop car in a flooded N.O. street, wearing all black with black men surrounding her, choreographed dance scenes, and everything else you can imagine from her, the five-minute visual story gives fans the response they’ve been waiting for from the Queen in reference to supporting the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Featuring a young black boy in a black hoodie as cops raise their hands, a white wall reads in black spay paint: “Stop shooting us.” Simple, yet effective enough to get your attention.

“Formation” is available for free download on TIDAL now, and Bey has also dropped her “Formation Collection” of clothing featuring lyrics like “I twirl on them haters” and “You that bitch when you cause all of this conversation,” “Slay,” and “Hot Sauce.”

“You know you that b*tch when you cause all this conversation / Always stay gracious / Best revenge is your paper,” she sings out as the song closes.

Watch Queen Bey go off below!
