New Music: Jacob Latimore – Mutual


Jacob Latimore has a hot record on his hands with his new single “The Real,” but that hasn’t stopped the rising star from unleashing a sultry new song off his forthcoming debut album, Connection.

The Milwaukee native holds no feelings back on the honest love song “Mutual,” where he admits to his jealous thoughts, and wants to keep the past in the past for the best of their relationship.

“I don’t want to think about another n**ga touching you / I don’t want to think about another n**ga loving you / And you don’t want to think about another b*tch f**kin’ me / Well you know it’s mutual,” he sings on the hook.

Latimore is currently prepping for the release of his debut album Connection, which is due out Dec. 9, and is available for pre-order on iTunes now.

Lloyd Unveils ‘Tru’ EP Cover & Tracklisting


Look at Lloyd!

The R&B crooner is baring it all on the cover of his anticipated new project Tru, which finds the singer appearing naked on a large moss-covered rock waterfall.

The 5-track EP, due out Dec. 9 includes features from Rick Ross (“Heavenly Body”) and 2 Chainz, who guests on the remix to the title track.

Speaking about appearing naked on the cover, Lloyd says he was able to symbolically share some of his vulnerabilities. “It was really more of an introspective thing,” he told Complex. “Although what you see on the outside is a guy who is apparently balls-to-the-wall naked in the woods near a waterfall, it’s really a moment for me to conquer all the fears that I might have had. All the inhibitions, the insecurities that usually exist in a person; to me it’s no exception. Insecurities of the body, being free in a public place.”

According to Lloyd, the location in North Georgia where the cover was shot was also instrumental to his recording process. “I would go there and oftentimes no one would be there,” he explained. “I would say to myself, ‘Man, I wish I could just run around here naked. It would feel so free.’ I said, you know what, that’s what I’m going to do for the cover art.”

This was particularly important for Lloyd because he says the album is meant to showcase that bare naked honesty. “People try to hide their flaws,” he says, “but I think the flaws make them a beautiful person. And that’s what Tru is all about.”

Following Tru, Lloyd is working on his next album Out My Window, which will be his first full-length project since 2011’s King of Hearts.

Joe Continues Impressive Streak on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart


Joe‘s career continues to be a symbol of the longevity that can be achieved in R&B music.

The Grammy-nominated singer’s 12th studio album, #MyNameisJoeThomas debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (dated Dec. 3), selling 17,000 copies in the week ending Nov. 17, according to Nielsen Music. It marks his 16th career entry and 11th top five-placing set on the 51-year-old chart.

Joe arrived on the Billboard charts in 1993 when his first album, Everything, reached No. 16 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. It’s his only studio effort to miss the top five of the chart. He earned his first Billboard Hot 100 hit that year with “I’m In Love,” from the debut set, peaking at No. 64.

His subsequent 11 studio albums have all debuted in the top five on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, beginning with his sophomore set, All That I Am (No. 4 debut and peak on the Aug. 16, 1997-dated chart). Since that first week in the top five, he has earned the most top-five debuts of any R&B act in that span of time (R. Kelly follows with nine top-five debuts since Aug. 16, 1997).

Video: Kehlani – Distraction


Feast your eyes on Kehlani.

The buzzing R&B star has unveiled her most intimate video to date, for her sexy single “Distraction.”

In the fresh visuals, directed by YASHXANA, Kehlani seduces the cameras throughout various colorful sets. She gets very intimate with her male co-star on a glittery sofa in the blue room before stripping down and getting into bed with him in the red room, as rose petals fall over her. The sexy mood then changes to sunshine and fun times in the yellow room, filled with flowers and happiness.

The Bay Area songstress will cap off the year with her “Tsunami Christmas” shows in London, Oakland, and Santa Ana over the next few weeks.

During a live stream with fans on Tuesday, Kehlani revealed that she is almost finished with her much-anticipated Atlantic Records debut album. While she wouldn’t reveal the title yet, or how many tracks will end up on the project, she did say that there are 0 collaborations right now, and it looks to remain that way (wonder if the label will agree). The Tsunami Mob should expect the album in the first quarter of 2017.

At least we now have the “Distraction” video to be, well, a distraction. Check it out below!
