Hey! I’m Lucas Brad and I’m an 18 year old student studying at college who like the rest of my generation – have no clue what they want to be, yet hopes their passions lead to a lifetime of success. I guess I could start with why I made a blog and waffle from there. Growing up I’ve always had a passion for music, fashion, media and I’ve always loved writing. Writing about holidays I’ve been on, places I’ve been, people I’ve seen, and experiences and lessons I’ve learnt and come across. I hope not only to entertain and inform you but to hopefully use this platform positively and do what I hope can combine my passions and interests into a life-long career.
If you have any questions or enquiries contact me on my Twitter: @bradburylucas or via my email. Hope you enjoy reading my blog!
Syd, best known for her vocals as the front-women of the group The Internet with hits such as “Girl” and “Get Away” releases her first solo project titled “FIN”. It is rare that you find a talented artist that has a project that is quality, full sounding and meaningful. Syd seems to capture all of this but most importantly the essence of a classic album, that allows listeners to listen to every song back to back without skipping a track. “FIN” is one of those albums that you have to listen to more than once to capture it’s wholeness and rawness. The album has a sexual feel, felt through Syd’s soft vocals yet she contrasts this with her hard hitting lyrics and punchlines. If that wasn’t enough, the titles of her tracks are enough to intrigue you into listening “All About Me”, “Drown In It” and “Insecurities”. Most of the tracks on the album capture a chilled, relaxed vibe; from this project, you can draw connections between a Jazz, Soul and R&B influences giving her an edge and yet another dimension. The album “FIN” is currently at the number 12 spot on iTunes in the UK. Be sure to download and buy this album available on all outlets including Apple music, Spotify, and Itunes.
“Know” and “Smile More” are definitely to the hottest songs of the week that you should go listen to.
Congratulations Syd on your first solo album!
It has been announced by Hollywood Walk of Fame producer and VP of media relations Ana Martinez that Viola Davis is set to make history and will be receiving a Hollywood star.
“First star of the new year will be for actress Viola Davis who will be honored on January 5.”
I believe that for Viola, this is well deserved! It has also been stated that according to the Electronic Urban Report: she’s already won an Emmy for her role in ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder,” two Tony Awards.
Congratulations Viola Davis!
For the 5 of you that care… on Wednesday E! announced the return of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna (Angela Kardashian) on a second season of Rob & Chyna. It’s reported that an 8 episode season will air in 2017 following the couple around; but there has been no official word on their Wedding special or the official release date of the season. I don’t know about you, but I will be watching the second season of the show. Heres why: Between the first season and now so much has happened in terms of the Kardashian-Jenner-Blac clan. Meaning that this season must have some juicy news and insight into what we have been missing all of these months. I’m interested to see how Rob and Blac‘s relationship has evolved and whether Rob has managed to grow a backbone for the next season. I want to see the baby, Dream and the family dynamic now that they have a new baby. Whether they’ve moved in together and whether they still argue like cat’s and dog’s.
…. I claim to say I’m going to watch the whole season but I definitely will be watching at least the first, last and maybe the 4th episode so I can keep in the loop and talk to all of you about it. I advise you all to watch the car-crash happening too and let me know what you think.
I will continue to keep you updated on all things Rob and Chyna and let you know any further developments. As always i wish the best for these two and hope that the second season is much better then the first.
Selena Gomez is set to be designing her own collection and will be the face of the brand Coach; with a signed $10 million deal. We applaud Selena on all the greatness she has accomplished!
Today, Ariana Grande and Mac Miller released the visual to their song “Favourite part”. Which tells the story of two neighbours who cross paths with instant attraction. The song itself showcases a side, I previous to listening to Mac Millers album “The Divine Feminine” I didn’t know he had. I was more familiar with “Frick Park Market” Mac Miller but after listening to his album I have fallen in love with the chill, jazzy vibe that the album has. The album presents Miller‘s lyrical talents as well as his creativity, fun side; and includes features from Ariana Grande, CeeLo Green, Kendrick Lamar, Ty Dolla Sign, Anderson Paak and Bilal. It’s definitely an album that you must go listen to, I guarantee that after listening to the album you will become a fan!
I look forward to seeing what Mac Miller has to offer fans in 2017 and whether future collaborations with Ariana Grande will follow.
The wait is over: Americas Next Top Model is back but this time it’s Rita Ora who calls the shots not Tyra Banks with a whole new judging panel. The new season is set to premiere tonight at 10/9c on VH1. Make sure you tune in! Let us know who your favourites are and who just doesn’t cut it. But most importantly your opinions on the changes to the show.
Both Little Simz and Kehlani bring a lot to the music “Table”. The duo sampled SWVs “Use Your Heart” and created a hit! The video is set in North London streets and showcases British culture, staring Kehlani, Little Simz and their friends. It shows both artists funny, quirky sides and presents both Kehlani and Little Simz lyrically and visually. The rest of the footage was shot at Kehlanis TSNMI-XMAS concert where the duo first performed the song. The visual is simple yet so rich with why we love both artists. Both Kehlani and Little Simz wear the clothing brand “kids of immigrants” ,which i am excited to see grow and develop in 2017. The footage, directed by David Camarena seems to have a realistic feel and shows us fans behind the scenes of Kehlani and Little Simz in London. Both artists are at the top of their game… Kehlani in the song sings with such flow that you could place her on a similar level to some rappers; whilst Little Simz remains one of the best female rappers in London. There are no words for the creativity and the “real” that this song and visual presents. Along with the vibe that keeps me and others putting this song on repeat. I like many would love to know where the concept for the song came from, how the collaboration came about and whether there will be future collaborations in 2017. We all can’t wait to see what more they both have to bring to the “Table” “SSS” in 2017.
I will continue to bring you all updates on Kehlani and Little Simz on LUCAS BRAD and wish nothing but success and happiness for both in 2017. x
