New Video: 2 Chainz feat. Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign, & Jhené Aiko – It’s A Vibe

The vibes are super strong in the swaggy new video for 2 Chainz recent star-studded collaboration, “It’s A Vibe” featuring Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign & Jhené Aiko.

The Atlanta rap star kicks off the visual in a sexy lounge club where he enjoys the company of some beautiful woman and a live band. The next vibe brings forth Ty Dolla, who sings his portion in a strip club kind of setting. Meanwhile, Trigga plays an alluring passenger in a drop top convertible, kicking game to a model.

“Okay, so I’ve got the ambiance just where I want it,” raps 2 Chainz. In a candle-lit room, he raps for a couple of lingerie-clad models. Then, wearing a mask, he transitions into a darker vibe, where chains fill up a dark room with curvaceous women dressed in black.

Jhené’s vibe is also quite dark, as she plays the role of this mysterious location’s boss. Counting money while getting her feet massaged, she sings about busting it wide.

“It’s a Vibe” is a single off 2 Chainz’ forthcoming album, Pretty Girls Like Trap Music. Initially set for release this month, the album has been pushed back to an undetermined date.

Rihanna, Kehlani, Sevyn, Tinashe & More Storm Coachella 2017

As if the desert wasn’t hot enough on the first weekend of Coachella 2017, some of R&B’s sexiest starlets stormed the annual spring festival to enjoy the good vibes.

While only a few of our favorites were actually on the bill, like Kehlani and NAO, others–like Rihanna–made surprise appearances, and some were there to attend the brand events, like Solange and Tinashe.

During her Sunday night set, Kehlani rocked a lose fitting white outfit that had ‘Find Our Girls’ written on her top, and ‘Solidarity’ down the leg of her pants.

Rihanna had social media in a craze over her shimmering full body suit with low cut Gucci tank top and jean shorts on Day 2, and she was seen turning up in the crowd to Kendrick Lamar’s set on Day 3.

The Weeknd, who came out to perform with XO producer-turned-artist NAV, spent some quality time with girlfriend Selena Gomez backstage. Singers like Sevyn Streeter, SZA, Christina Milian, Justine Skye and more all were in attendance as well to take in the performances and mingle during the events.

Buzzing teen singer-songwriter Khalid caught up with Solange and Kehlani, who also spent some time with Sevyn and SZA on Day 2. Jhené Aiko and her sister Mila J were also hanging around. Jhené posted a photo on Instagram that said her body was in Coachella but her heart is at the Lightning in a Bottle Festival, which is coming up on Memorial Day Weekend.

Check out all their festive fun with the photos and video footage below.

Listen: Jhené Aiko Joins The Chainsmokers on “Wake Up Alone”

The Chainsmokers have been consistently killing the charts, and providing anthems for clubs everywhere. Today (Apr. 7), the duo have released their debut album Memories…Do Not Open, which features a hypnotic collaboration with Jhené Aiko, called “Wake Up Alone.”

Over a pulsating beat, Aiko reflects on her success and a love affair. “Now I got cars, now I got clothes, now I got money / Now I got crowds screaming my name, saying they love me / You get real close, say I’m not alone / You understand me / But late at night when I close my eyes, the quiet scares me,” she sings.

Later, Jhené dismisses the material items, and only hopes to keep the love close. “Will you be there in the morning / Do you stay when it all goes, or will I wake up alone?” she asks.

Memories…Do Not Open is out now featuring additional appearances from Florida Georgia Line, Emily Warren, and Louane.  Jhené is currently working on her follow-up album to 2014’s Souled Out, as well as a second TWENTY88 project with Big Sean.

‘SOULQUARIUS’ Brings R&B Greats, Past & Present, to West Coast Fans!

When the flyer for the inaugural SOULQUARIUS Festival in Santa Ana, California dropped in late 2016, R&B lovers everywhere went crazy over the line-up of scheduled performers.  From throwback artists like Jon B. and DMX to current R&B tastemakers such as Ro James, Jhené Aiko, and BJ The Chicago Kid, there was no denying that this event was guaranteed to be a lituation.

Fear of getting rained out and continuous flooding from California’s big storm may have had most on edge but, that didn’t stop ticket holders from coming out in droves to get a taste of what their favorite performers have to offer. Of course, there were a few mishaps along the way (like any huge festival has during their opening year), but SOULQUARIUS — aside from its massive lineup — has plenty of reasons why it should be the R&B festival that you don’t want to miss from here on out.

Delivering a jammed packed mash-up of lovable R&B artists and a few of rap’s most influential, SOULQUARIUS made sure to leave festival enthusiasts with a need to get their coins up for next year.
