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!
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.
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
Today Kehlani released the SweetSexySavage world tour dates which is set to kick off in February. Ella Mai, Jahkoy and Noodles are set to open for the SSS star. This is definitely not a tour to be missed. tickets go on sale Wednesday with more dates being added… Personally i am so excited for the tour to come to London, you will definitely catch me there singing back every lyric. Visit KehlaniMusic.com to see the complete list of dates, pre-order the album and get tickets on Wednesday.
