Puff Daddy Brings Out Usher, Mary J. Blige, Faith Evans, 112, Total, Carl Thomas & More at Bad Boy Family Reunion

Mary+J+Blige+Puff+Daddy+Family+Bad+Boy+Reunion+2YW7UyWe4qUl

Brooklyn was all BAD BOY this weekend.

Puff Daddy & The Family kicked off the official “Bad Boy Reunion Tour” with two sold-out shows at Barclays Center on Friday and Saturday night, and it was an all-out celebration! Held in honor of the late, great Notorious B.I.G.’s 44th birthday, Puff invited nearly every act he worked with over the years to create one of the biggest hip hop concerts in history. But, as we all know the successful entertainer and entrepreneur got his start in R&B and created much of his success by blending the two genres together.

During the two night extravaganza, Puff accomplished the near-impossible task of condensing a significant chunk of hip-hop and R&B history into four hours, giving fans flashes of nostalgia as the likes of Total, 112, Carl Thomas, Faith Evans, The LOX, Lil’ Kim, and Ma$e performed their classics from the Bad Boy catalogue to a sold-out crowd. However, according to the Bad Boy boss the label wouldn’t exist without the prior success he had with Mary J. Blige at Uptown Records, who while on stage thanked him for taking a tomboy living in the projects and transforming her into the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul. Mary tore up the Barclay’s stage with her timeless hits “Real Love,” “Be Happy,” “You Don’t Have to Worry,” and her remake of “I’m Goin’ Down.”

112 serenaded the crowd with a string of hits including, “Cupid,” “It’s Over Now,” “Dance With Me,” and “Peaches & Cream.” Then it was Kima, Keisha, and Pam’s turn, sounding pitch-perfect when they delivered “Can’t You See,” “Trippin’” and “Kissin’ You.”

Mario Winans dropped in with “I Don’t Wanna Know,” Cassie surprised with her smash single “Me & U,” and Ty Dolla $ign joined Diddy for “You Could Be My Lover.” Usher also surprised with “U Don’t Have to Call” and “I Need a Girl, Pt. 1 and 2.”

The closer for the evening was “I’ll Be Missing You,” a touching performance with Faith Evans belting her chorus alongside a gospel choir that all happened right as Biggie’s would-be 44th birthday rang in. Confetti and balloons fell from the sky. “Happy birthday, playboy,” Puff said.

Video: Alicia Keys – In Common

Alicia-In-Common-Vid

Fresh off her appearances on “SNL” and “The Voice,” Alicia Keys delivers the anticipated video for her new single “In Common.” She strips things down in the black-and-white clip, which was inspired by the “electric energy” of New York City.

Alicia goes for a more natural look while standing on a fire escape and walking through a set made to resemble the streets of her hometown. She is accompanied by a diverse group of men and women, who are unafraid to showcase their individuality.

“This video is about celebrating our individuality, and how in the brilliance of our uniqueness, the magic of it all is at the core, we are all the same,” Keys told The FADER. “We want the same things. We all want to experience love, the freedom to be our truest selves, to love whomever we want and to be accepted and celebrated for all of our nuances and so called imperfections that make us, us.”

Her sixth album, the follow-up to 2012’s Girl on Fire, is due later this summer, and will feature her new song “Hallelujah,” which she debuted on “SNL.”

Dondria Nicole Returns with Double Singles “Luh Ya” and “2 Good”

Dondria Luh Ya

Dondria Nicole is back with not one but two brand new singles!

The R&B songstress, who was first discovered and signed off YouTube by Jermaine Dupri, hasn’t released much since 2014’s “Ain’t No Way,” but that all changes today with her duel single release of “Luh Ya” and “2 Good.”  Both records were produced by The Pen House, and are our first taste of her upcoming EP The Day of the Don.

On the uptempo, feel-good “Luh Ya,” which features rapper Ace B, the singer/songwriter celebrates a love that is bringing her everything that she’s ever dreamed of and more. “Baby I’ve never been the type to get caught up on material things / The only thing I ever needed was you / You give the benefits, considerate, when I need to talk you listen,” she sings.

“2 Good” shows another side of the singer’s relationships as she lets an ex know that she is fully confident in herself and being without him, because she was out of his league. “Though I’m not perfect I’m worth much more than you / You took all that I gave and left nothing to lose / Sacrifices are made, and made it clear you wouldn’t change / Guess I’ll take the blame for believing you,” she sings.

Take a listen to both singles below, and you can pick them up on iTunes now.
