Take a trip to outer space in two minutes and fifty-two seconds? I think you can with AMEA’s music video for Space(ships).
AMEA is a Texan R&B singer with Native and African roots. Her music video for Space(ships) is a beautiful representation of both cultures. Upon first listen I was like “oooh I like this”. The intro starts out cool and sultry but then the music begins to pick up and that’s when I start to do a little dance. There was definitely some strong head bobbing(what I like to call it) at my desk at work. Whatever, my coworkers should be used to me dancing at my desk by now. I really love this track ya’ll it is the perfect blend of R&B and Afrofuturism.
“I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly”
The visuals in this music video are impeccable. I love the colors and I especially love that it feels like I am going on a journey in this video. The elements and shapes are constantly transitioning and morphing into different objects and people, I like that effect.
All in all 10 out of 10, two thumbs up, I mean how other ways can I tell you that I love this record and the video. Go check it out!
Aeriel is an an upcoming R&B singer songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Her debut single Be Down is a good sign that she will be doing big things. Her sweet smooth vocals over music that sounds like it could be from the 90’s but has a nice twist in the chorus.
“Low expectations help with disappointment”
The debut single is about Aeriel missing a lover from her past although he is not good for her. Something that we can all relate to. The lyrics start out with “low expectations help with disappointment”. I’m sure what we all tell ourselves when dealing with something we are not suppose to. The song is a bop for sure from the lyrics to the beat it is good. It will have your shoulders moving constantly moving from left to right or maybe that’s just me. The music video for Be Down is beautifully done with Aeriel rocking cornrows and showing off some of her dance moves. I loved the song from the first time I heard it. Be Down is on her new EP Sad Girls Club coming soon this year. I’m excited to check out her EP when it comes out.
Check out Aeriel song Be Down you will not regret it !
I’m always excited for DMV artists on the come up being from Northern Virginia myself. I am very proud if a DC artists is on the rise even if I am not from DC proper I still feel connected to them. Ari Lennox is one of those artists I’m excited for. She has a new EP out and has even provided vocals for J. Cole’s new album 4 your eyez only . Her newest EP Pho is everything I want in an R&B project it has sexy songs and a few songs I can bop my head to.
Pho is an incredible project and I enjoy all of the songs on it. But I do have a top three Backseat, Cold Outside and my ultimate favorite La La La La. What I love most about Lennox music is her distinct voice and it really shines through in La La La La. Her voice is so sultry and sweet throughout the song. It really is a song where you should sit back and take in the song, and let it wash over you.
Pho overall will have you listening on repeat. I listened from beginning to end thoroughly liking each track. If you enjoy sensual sexy R&B you will delight in listening to Pho. Stop what you are doing right now and go and listen to Pho by Ari Lennox. You will thank me later.
I have met people who feel as though Hip Hop and R&B is strictly for the turn up. Obviously those of us who are true fans know that this is false. Hip Hop and R&B can be quite relaxing music, HeyFranHey is a social media influencer and podcast host who created this beautiful relaxing Hip Hop and R&B music playlist called The Cool Breeze.
This playlist is for chillin’ maybe for a nice bath with candles or for sitting by the window drinking tea. HeyFranHey even takes you through a breathing exercise mid-playlist. This music is great for the soul so sit back relax and let the music take over.
My top three favorite songs from the playlist are:
