Video: TQ – Coming Home


After premiering the track with us this past summer, R&B veteran TQ returns with the brand new music video for his comeback single “Coming Home,” which he premiered with BET earlier this week.

The Westside funk inspired “Coming Home” is the first single and title track off his forthcoming album due out later this year. The raw story of “Coming Home” is also a first look into TQ’s television series “Brothers” currently in pre-production.  The music video tells an intriguingly story about a man about to be released from jail amid rumors that his girl was cheating on him.

Speaking about the track TQ explains: “Coming Home is a bridge musically between where I’ve been and where I wanna go. The funk inspiration is definitely West Coast and the lyric and melody comes from the soul, which is where I started. It stays real throughout.”

Video: Melanie Fiona – I Tried


Melanie Fiona gets real in the debut of the music video for her new single “I Tried.” The R&B songstress performs in a glass cage in the middle of a dark room in the powerful clip, which is intended to raise awareness about serious social justice issues like domestic violence, mass shootings, police brutality, rape, racial inequality, and human trafficking.

“It is important for me to channel the ideas and concepts I am passionate about into my music and my art… As an artist with a social platform, I feel it is my responsibility to do so,” said Melanie. “The video for ‘I Tried’ is a tribute to the fight in which we all witness and experience both internally and externally in the world daily. The conversation of important issues should not end when we turn the TV off. I hope this visual sparks emotion, thought, dialogue, reflection, and ultimately, positive change.”

The song, produced by Andre “Dre” Harris, is set to appear on Melanie’s third album Awake, which has already spawned the first single “Bite the Bullet.”

Video: Lipstick Gypsy – The Cure


Emerging funk/soul band Lipstick Gypsy waste no time in between releases.  After grabbing our attention with their sexy debut single “Infatuation,” the duo follow it up with a video for new song “The Cure.”

Strolling through the streets of NYC the fellas keep things simple and timeless as they adhere to a love heals all policy. Meeting up with their ladies for a walk on the pier at sunset, vocalist John Thomas sings out: “So sick of the loneliness, and moving on to the next / I’m stayin right here, I think your love might be the cure.”

The group started out as just a one-time collaboration between John and producer Chris Liggio, but their chemistry was too good to just stop there. Chris, who has worked with everyone from JAY Z to Nicki Minaj, says that their sound is an extension of what’s already in his own heart and soul.

“If you cut me open this is what you’ll find,” explains Chris. “I love chord structures and groove is everything to me so this is what I naturally do. I sit down and this comes out, as opposed to working with other artists in the past and trying to tailor something to a specific person. This is more natural.”

Joining forces again with director/producer Monty Marsh and the Guerilla Filmworx team, they deliver an innovative storytelling masterpiece. The visual starts with “Billie Jan” where the color red is the underlying visual theme to illustrate her forthcoming album The Red Era. D∆WN lies naked in a heap of red rose petals and is chased by a suitor through a set glowing with crimson light and smoke. With sensual choreography and a domineering motif, Dawn’s lyrics are brought to life in this piece.

Her brand new single “Dance” quickly follows with colored smoke and compelling camera moves. The energy turns up a notch as the choreography becomes the visual centerpiece.
