New Music: Kenny Lattimore – Push

Kenny Lattimore Push

Grammy-nominated R&B artist, Kenny Lattimore returns with the new single “Push.”

Produced by Dra-kkar Wesley aka Madison, the commanding ballad showcases an edgier side to Lattimore. His emotive delivery paints a picture of a man who realizes he has made a mistake by pushing away the love of his life. Laying bare the inner workings of a man’s mind and hearts of women for listeners.

The song’s retro sound is the most obvious departure from Lattimore’s usual cadence but manages to maintain the smooth sound that is classic Kenny.

“The sound doesn’t conform,” explains Lattimore. “One of the things that I did think about was staying true to myself and the other was the fact that I remember the eighties well. We wanted to create something contemporary and timeless.”

“Push” is the first single off Lattimore’s forthcoming 9th studio album, which is due out October 13.

New Music: Sammie – Too Long


Hot off the release of his stellar 2016 EP, I’m Him, R&B crooner Sammie premieres the sexy new single “Too Long,” off his upcoming album Coming of Age.

After delivering the summer-friendly jam “Bad Gal” last month, Sammie takes us back to the bedroom on the ’90s inspired slow jam, which includes an interpolation of R. Kelly’s “You Remind Me of Something.”

“It’s a sensual record,” Sammie told Rap-Up. “Ultimately, I’m a balladeer. I sing my ass off. That’s what I’ve always done. It’s really reminiscent of ’90s R&B, that good vibe R. Kelly, that Usher, that Joe, that Tank. I’m younger than these guys, so it’s just young and fresh. I think girls are really gonna enjoy it and set the mood, and fellas it should definitely help y’all. Just light a candle and don’t say anything crazy.”

Coming of Age is due out September 15, and will include collaborations with Rick Ross (“Good Life”) and Eric Bellinger (“Show and Tell”). Fans that pre-order the album now, will also receive the title track “COA” as an instant download. Prior to the album’s release, Sammie will join Tank on his “Savage Tour,” which kicks off Sept. 5 in Nashville.

Watch: Eric Bellinger Empowers with New Anthem “Be The Change”


Eric Bellinger is literally using his voice to take a stand.

The R&B singer was inspired by the recent racially motivated events that transpired over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia and he has released a new performance video titled “Be The Change.”

Taking to the streets of Los Angeles with an acoustic guitar player, Bellinger busked through a performance of the empowering anthem about fighting hate with love and standing up for what you believe is the right and moral way to live.

“Before you give up on life, just give love a try / Let’s come together / Keep your head up to the sky / And fight ’til the day you die / Let’s come together,” he sings. “If you believe just follow me / I’ll be the change that the world’s been missing.”

In between shots of his street performance, the visual contains vintage footage from the days of Jim Crow and the Civil Rights Movement, along with footage from the violent protests in Charlottesville.

“Felt I needed to share something given everything that has been going on in Charlottesville,” wrote Eric on Instagram before adding in one of Nelson Mandela’s iconic quotes.

New Music: Mila J – Touch Me

It’s not 50 Shades of Grey, but Mila J has us at her beck and call after hearing her brand new song, “Touch Me.”  The sensual track is from the upcoming movie, ‘Til Death Do Us Part, and it’s so sexy she should have recorded it live in a bedroom.

Mila’s vocals glide over the silky production highlighted by electric guitar and a high pitched female vocal sample. “The way you touch me, baby / Grips on my neck, I won’t refuse / Wonder what’s next / It’s all up to you,” she sings.

The song is meant to have a “simple” yet emotional feel, according to the R&B singer. “‘Touch Me’ has this intimate, stripped-down vibe to it that’s very sexy but still classy and mature,” she told Billboard.

“Touch Me” will be featured in a love scene from ‘Til Death Do Us Part, but that wasn’t the only thing that attracted Mila to the film. “The movie is helping and empowering women who might be in domestic violence situations to be strong enough to walk away,” she said. “I wanted to be a part of a project that’s empowering women to stand up for themselves.”

Earlier this year Mila released the surprise project Dopamine for her fans, as something to hold them over until she releases her debut album.
