It ain’t Tuesday (or Friday since the music release date changed last week) but I was vibing to so many new, hot songs on the treacherous 101 highway that I had to drop a new music spotlight. Sevyn Streeter continues to provide us bangers while teaming up with her new beau, Atlanta rapper B.O.B. Plus, Tyrese brings the heat in his hot and steamy new LP and Vivian Green proves that soul music ain’t dead.
I wasn’t really here for Sevyn Streeter and B.O.B’s lovefest until I realized it ain’t none of my business (cues Chris Brown and Rihanna’s “Nobody’s Business” rendition). But I am all the way here for their new record, “Should’ve Been There.” They have a cute lyric video to supplement the record which features a fun clip of them rehearsing the song. Watch the video below and sing along with the lyrics:
Another songstress to come with a tough summer record is Vivian Green. I’m late on this one but was listening to the Heart & Soul station on XM when I was blown away by a Frankie Beverly & Maze sample of “Before I Let You Go.” I clicked the info to learn it was Ms. Green. The soulful singer hasn’t dropped an album since 2012 but it’s been since her 2010 hit “Beautiful” that I’ve last noticed her on the scene. I remember seeing her in concert back in 2005 alongside Lyfe Jennings and Floetry, one of the best shows I’ve had the pleasure to experience. Her new song “Get Right Back to My Baby” is upbeat, fun and immediately makes me have a dance break.
Apple Music has afforded me the ability to listen to a lot of new LP’s. I heard good things about Tyrese’s new Black Rose which dropped last Tuesday so I decided to add my two cents. I’ll give two cents times six hundred for this album. I could pretty much listen to it straight through. I especially enjoy the very first song, “Addict,” as well as “Dumb S&*t” ft. Snoop Dogg and “Prior to You” ft. Tank. Chrisette Michele and Brandy are also featured. Take a listen to “Prior to You” below. What songs are blasting through your speakers?
