New Music Video: Never Fold – LaBritney

VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star LABRITNEY debuts the official music video for the title track from her latest track, ‘Never Fold’ via Billboard.

“I wanted to create a balance in the visual by showing a very feminine, sensual, yet raw performance,” the multi-hyphenate told Billboard of the Marty McFly-directed video, which was also choreographed by Mikey Peseante and celebrity choreographer Jose “Hollywood” Ramos. “Real hair, minimal makeup, simple style, raw emotions and dancing.”

EP Review: Nothing Is Forever – Shon Jay

SHON JAY is that guy who set the bar high – and I mean unobtainably high among his music contemporaries.

His latest EP, ‘Nothing Is Forever’ may be only eight – tracks long, but there’s an electric mix of genres – from funk, old school soul and even an expected appearance of a little country – all of which oozes undisputed class.

Among a crowded industry that’s filled with quick-fix hits that’s easily forgotten, SHON JAY‘s ‘Nothing Is Forever’ is a true testament that there’s still GOOD and MEANINGFUL MUSIC out there and it’s definitely a collection that can be enjoyed from five or even ten years from now – I guess some things last forever.

Check him out below – it’s like listening to soul idols Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau and George Benson, all wrapped up in one.
