Musical Motivation- Nas featuring Amy Winehouse “Cherry Wine”
This is my absolute favorite song on the whole album. “Where is he the man who is just like me? Heard he was hiding somewhere I can’t see? Amy’s voice sends chills through my body. I don’t think anyone else could’ve sang her part. I love the message. Everyone is looking for their life partner. This song is pure fire.
Musical Motivation- Nas “Bye Baby”
I absolutely love this song. I love his whole album but his vulnerability on this record is what makes it so special. Its just so real. I think I got a crush. (i’m blushing)
Musical Motivation- Dawn Richard’s Wild N’ Faith
While it seems like proteges of Diddy usually fall off and end up on the where are they now posts, Dawn Richard is set to prove that she is indeed a gem and its her turn to shine. Polished and stacked (check out her toned legs in this video), Dawn is standing tall ready to set herself apart from the rest.
Her voice has always commanded solo attention but now you have no choice but to listen as she belts out these two songs. Also, the visual component of this video is nothing short of amazing. Dawn Richard is not the girl we’ve watched on Making the Band and singing beside Diddy. She has stepped into her own and this video shows her growth. I love the drama of the costumes, the headgear, nails, make up etc. but the choreography stands out, especially watching Dawn do the heel toe in what looks like 6 inch heels. It’s clearly your time honeybun, go get your blessing!!!!!
Musical Motivation- Brandy featuring Chris Brown “Put it Down”
Mo to da, E to the da. Moesha done grown up and wants a dude who can Put It Down. Brandy done stepped her game all the way up and is proving that she’s ready to compete on the next level for longevity in this music game. In this video she even busts a serious whine, hitting dance moves we’re not quite used to seeing her produce. But she delivers and Chris Brown’s sexy ass is just in here being Chris Brown’s sexy ass.
Ms. Norwood has stepped her styling game up as well. Although she rocks her lace fronts in this she also reps for us curly haired girls with a big curly fro. She also rocks waist length thick single braids and her make up is flawless. Alright now Ms. Brandy. I’m rooting for ya. Check the video out honeybuns. I liked it.
Music Motivation- Elle Varner “Refill"
I can’t get this song out of my head. It has just the right amount of sexy. Her voice is divine. Best line “feel like a conversational lush" OWWWW
Musical Motivation - Nas “The Don”
He’s my new crush and he looks amazing in this video. “20 years in the game still looking 17” Owww and with Super Cat on the hook this is pure hauteness that the music game is missing right now. I so have this on blast.
Oh dudes peep the fashion. He’s dressed like a grown man. It takes a hell of a man to pull off a pink blazer too. He straight took it back to Street Dreams.
Musica Motivation - Emeli Sande “Heaven”
The Brits may be on to something, they gave us Amy Winehouse, Adele and now Emeli Sande. The Capitol Records artist dropped out of medical school one year shy of receiving her degree to follow her heart and do music. Her voice pulls you in. Its soulful and has a truth to it when you hear the words. Its as if she singing from her soul, which is something that’s lacking in today’s lackluster pop driven music. Check out her debut album “Our Version of Events” now available in the US. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention that she has a great style. I’m digging this song Heaven and another called Daddy.
What do you guys think?
I love me some Common!
