Video: Sebastian Mikael – Money


While we’re still high off of Sebastian Mikael‘s debut album, Speechless, the talented singer is giving fans something else to bask in while we await his follow-up.

Releasing the new song “Money” with an accompanying music video, the single finds Sebastian highlighting the bigger plans of a certain stripper who isn’t locked in to making a career in the strip club.

In relation to the single, Sebastian recently told The Boombox: “The song is about a stripper grinding who’s way smarter than she looks. She plays people for money. She’s looking for a come-up, so she does whatever for the money, but she’s gonna go beyond what everybody thinks. Being a stripper is just the phase she’s in now.”

Reminiscent of Miguel’s last album, “Money” will have you hitting the repeat button over and over again.

Video: David Morin – Life Goes On


Last month we were very impressed with the debut single, “Life Goes On,” by emerging Canadian crooner David Morin.  Now, the singer/songwriter has premiered the feel-good music video.

The uplifting song is a strong representation of Morin and his music. His grooves are smooth, yet his lyrics address protest: politics, justice, and inspiring social change.

“The video for ‘Life Goes On’ is really about the boy; a young Cree member navigating his hometown of Kahnawake,” states Morin. “I’m actually a quarter Metis, but that’s the subtle link between the two of us. At the start of the video, he’s visibly concerned, but he explores, he dances, he lights fireworks – he sheds the weight of whatever was holding him down by using his imagination and tackling the experiences his immediate world has to offer.”

He continues, “That’s what ‘Life Goes On’ is about; yeah, it’s hard sometimes, but you can only count on yourself to discover all the things life has to offer. So, even though the video only shows the contrast between my experience and the boy’s, it’s the universal message of positivity through adversity that I think translates to the viewer, the listener, to anyone.”

All Def Digital, brought to you by Russell Simmons, is hosting the video as part of “The Signal” series highlighting up-and-coming artists. Recently, the song was chosen as “Single of the Week” on ADD52, the company’s music discovery platform created by Simmons and Steve Rifkind in partnership with Universal Music Group and Samsung.

Video: Louis York – Clair Huxtable


Previously mysterious duo Louis York are ready to make sure everyone knows the faces behind the name and buzz-worthy SXSW posters.

After premiering the single earlier this Spring, the platinum hitmakers have now unveiled the music video for their debut single “Clair Huxtable.”

For those who aren’t familiar yet, Louis York is made up of multi-Grammy nominees Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony. Individually and as a duo, the two have penned hits for a veritable who’s who of the Billboard charts, including Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Jennifer Hudson and Christina Aguilera, to name a few. Their songs have sold more than 25 million copies to date, blanketed radio airwaves around the world, and garnered multiple Grammy and Billboard nominations.

With their new project though, they are pushing the pop envelope and celebrating woman with a wholesome metaphor from many of our childhoods.

“Clair Huxtable isn’t just a TV icon, she’s a lifestyle,” Louis York told The FADER. “With all these one dimensional portrayals of woman we get force-fed, it was time to remind ourselves and whoever hears the song that ‘hot’ can mean more. This song and video are a loud Louis York memo that sexy and smart can co-exist.”

“It’s not the way she styles her hair, or the designer clothes she wears / Her silhouette’s one of a kind, but most of all she’s got a beautiful mind,” sings Kelly, but sadly all the girls they run into in the video have got something else on their mind.

Putting everything on the line for a blissful romance Stacy sings, “I would suffer war if it meant victory was our love.” And she brings her vision of victory to life in the new visual.

“I’m basically playing a voodoo priestess presiding over a marriage. I pretty much have suffered a war my entire life, me battling myself and the world, and then to end up with somebody that just absolutely adores you — I would suffer a war if it meant victory,” she told The FADER. “I’m trying to get to the better place.”

Stacy’s BEcoming is executive produced by John Legend and due out later this Spring via Motown Records.
