R Jay – Time Will Tell Vol. 2 (Free Download)

Time Will Tell Vol.2 is RJay’s 2nd R&B mixtape, with his first (Time Will Tell) being released just over 2 years ago. This tape consists of 11 tracks + 3 skits, and only has one feature (Colz). 
This release from RJay is a very mature one, and showcases his talents as a vocalist and songwriter. He has consistently been improving — although the majority of his improvements have happened behind the scenes as he hasn’t actually released many singles — the progress from the previous project to this one is unbelievable. TWTV.2 almost sounds like an album, I would have definitely paid for this. “Wanderlust.” and “Ride” are probably my favourites on this project.

Jesse Gamage – Courage EP (Download)

JesseGamage- Courage EP

The extremely talented singer-songwriter Jesse Gamage recently released his “Courage EP“. It is a 5 track long EP comprised of absolutely beautiful soul music. Jesse Gamage will appeal to all audiences and can make anyone that listens to him fall in love with his smooth vocals. I cannot over-sell this, but I’ll do my best to just let the music speak for itself!

Jordan King – Unborn Child

I find Jordan King a beautiful mix of raw emotion, power and good looks. His voice and writing capabilities speak for themselves in this track. Absolutely stunning, and something slightly different from Jordan.

Shay La Rose – Running

Running (produced by Benjiflow) is the first track for singer/song-writer Shay La Rose‘s forthcoming EP. Her honest and meaningful lyrics describe the very common story felt by the cast majority of people, about wanting to break free from a dark place in search for the better whilst overcoming obstacles. Her smooth vocals compliment the soft instrumentals to produce an easy-listening track.

Bamboss & Black Bohemian – Time

Since Bamboss has his own studio he produces and records a lot of ideas while searching for the next single. That means there’s a lot of stuff sitting there waiting to be showcased, so he decided to start this thing called #BamdiggyMoments. Basically every so often, in between finding singles or dropping a video, he’ll drop a #BamdiggyMoment, which could be a freestyle or a song with just one verse on it or just a chorus. 

This is the first #BamdiggyMoment and it features the extremely extremely talented Black Bohemian (formerly Levelle London). “Time” is written by Bamboss himself, but does include some of Black Bohemian’s own ideas. I hope you enjoy! Also make sure you keep locked, I’m determined to get an interview and a song from Black Bohemian as soon as I can!

Cleo – Beauty for Ashes EP (Free Download)

Cleo (formerly Mz. Bratt/Cleopatra) has made a comeback with a completely new sound. She’s still rapping but now singing too. I heard her sing for the first time a few years ago on 1Xtra and have been waiting since for her to start singing on her own music and I’ve finally waited long enough and I personally think she sounds great! I much prefer this new sound for Cleo; the toned down beats with her smooth vocals over the top are a perfect combination.

Kadiata – Goodnight

This is the 3rd release from Kadiata (formerly Clixx). You’ve had Anxiety, Madeleine and now Goodnight. Kadiata‘s new sound is completely different to what you heard before and he is now experimenting with singing over his own songs. He says he likes how the autotune sounds (used on the Madeleine track), however I know he still sounds great without it as this song has come to show.

Bruda – Dre – Hieroglyphics

I love the idea & concept of this track from Bruda Dre, it has potential that’s for sure

J.Appiah – I Ain’t Rich Yet

Male singers always come and go, there are so many good ones. Jesse though.. I like him very much. He’s got a nice tone. ACE

Mya Sky – Fire (LinkUpTV)

We all know Mya Sky is a talented vocalist, thanks to LinkUpTV we’ve got a great video now too!

  • [Thought of the Week]

    "Maybe cheating in a relationship isn't the worst thing you could do, maybe it's just human nature?"

    Remember when you were a child, and your parents would tell you you're not allowed to eat sweets, or make a mess in your bedroom, and you'd do the complete opposite and crave it even more just because you're not allowed? Or if you're on a diet, you know you're not allowed cake or carbs, but simply because you know you're not allowed it, you want it even more? Well surely the same applies in relationships?
    Firstly, I want to start by saying we're not perfect, but perfection is something we should strive towards. Honesty is the best policy.
    A friend of mine is genuinely one of the loveliest people I know, with the best heart and the best intentions and I don't want to show him in a negative light whatsoever, simply provide you with an alternative idea. I've known him for a few years, however we only started speaking properly about a year ago. We both found each other attractive, blah blah blah, so we decided to book a hotel room. He ignored me for a few days, so obviously something was wrong, then he told me there's another girl he loves (obviously I didn't know this before), as they weren't together. I didn't think much of it, actually I was extremely envious of this girl, and that she has someone in her life that is so dedicated and faithful. A few months later, conversation escalated, and we once again decided to go hotel, and a few days beforehand he once again cancelled. This time I was pretty angry and upset, because he'd lead me on and then cancelled. Obviously we're not together but I'm my own person too at the end of the day and don't want to be lead on.
    Another few months later we started talking, innocent conversation about gym, films etc (this time via dm on twitter as I deleted his number and vice versa, I assume), and I had calmed down over the previous incident, he was a genuinely lovely person and I admire the faithfulness to his yet to be girlfriend, I hope I find someone like that in the future. But anyway, we decided to have a gym session together, as we live near each other we went to the park, and for the majority of it, it was a really good session, fun, productive (my legs KILLED the following day) but there was sexual tension, especially towards the end. My back was super sore from gym the previous day and he offered a massage, it was rubbish and he didn't get very far unfortunately as he was starting to give in, and couldn't resist the attraction any longer. Not a lot happened as I stopped him, before it escalated too far. I'd hate for my future husband to cheat on me, so I could only give this couple the same respect (they were together a few months at this point). The following day he thanked me, and was grateful for stopping him.
    The point of this example is, I know my friend loves his girlfriend very much but none of us are perfect and we all give in to temptation now and again. Many males/females cheat because they have a craving, and a hoe gets in the way that has no respect for the relationship and only wants his/ her needs fulfilled, few will have a conscience and stop anything

    Alternatively, on a separate occasion I was speaking to another friend about this topic. He told me that he's seen a sidechick/man save many relationships. His reasons were that if you have an argument with your partner, instead of ending the relationship, you go to see a sidechick/man, relax, then go back to your partner happy and proceed as normal. I disagree with his reasoning however I see the point behind it.
    As long as you don't make a habit out of temptation, and are honest... maybe we're too extreme when it comes to cheating? I disagree with cheating, and don't condone it, however this is just a thought. Everyone get's bored of everything eventually if you get too high a dose, it's just a matter of balance.
