“Follow Me’ is the kind of track that you have replaying while on a nice late night drive. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Rochelle Jordan constantly releases songs that really jam out. Most of her songs have hard beats, and when coupled with her soothing vocals, you will find your neck snapping. Here is the visual of the track:

I must give a major pat on the back to my cousin T|U|K|O, a Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, on the release of his new video, “Prince Shxt”. The visual, directed by PK Robinson, has a tribal influence to match the great bass line in the track. Check it out:

“Prince Shxt” is featured on his latest EP, I&U (Infrared and Ultraviolet).

LA Timez: I Danced in Lova Boy’s Music Video

I had the pleasure of dancing  in Lova Boy’s music video, “God Pickni (God’s child).”  Lova Boy aka “Prince of Belize,” is a Punta Rock artist that has quite a following in Belize and in Los Angeles’ Belizean community. In God Pickni, he deviated from  his party boy ways to express his faith to his fans.

We shot the video on one hot summer day in July and boy oh boy was it a lot of hard work.  We made sure we stayed hydrated and had fun. I left the shoot with a whole new respect for artists. Sometimes we get caught up in the results and don’t think about the time, blood, sweat and tears they put into a project.  So with that said, what good is hard work without sharing the goodies? Check out the visuals. Enjoy.

P.S. I am the dancer with the long braids.

Must Watch: Kendra Morris Covers Rolling Stone’s ‘Miss You’

MissYou
Kendra Morris helps a few mature women get their sexy back in the visual for her rendition of the Rolling Stones’, “Miss You.” Her take on the classic track will have your feet tapping no doubt, but you must listen to her entire cover album, Mockingbird. Track after track is repeat worthy. Especially tracks such as, “Space Oddity” by David Bowie and “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” by Pink Floyd.

Mockingbird is out July 30th via Wax Poetics Records, and is now streaming on KCRW.com. .

Throwback Thursday: Janet Kay’s ‘Silly Games’

I came across Janet Kay’s vintage “Silly Games” performance while researching old-school reggae songs. Although the song is upbeat, it tells the tale of a love that will never be. Yes, it’s sad, but it tells a great story.

It’s quite amazing what I come across while researching songs. I also found Daley’s beautiful interpretation of the track:
