“From now on I think you are gonna see a lot of me…”
Lolo sashays through Coney Island’s famous amusement park during off-season shut down and gets crazy at her favorite Brooklyn studio – Shabby Road for the visual of Year Round Summer of Love, which was made of 1,350 stills.
Year Round Summer of Love was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by legendary hip hop knob twiddler Mark Batson (Dr Dre, Eminem, Jay Z) who produced the bulk of Lolo’s forthcoming debut album, Weapon For Saturday.
Year Round Summer of Love is out now.

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.
Girl, I can definitely relate to this track. Check out Solange’s latest video for the single “Lovers In The Parking Lot.”
Check out Alice Russell’s video for the single “For A While” from her album To Dust.
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. .
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:
Texan rapper, Brianna Perry, releases the visual for the track, “Mascara Tears” from her Symphony No. 9: The B Collection album. The song tells the story of a woman who lost herself in the fast life. Check it:
Bay Area singer, Netta Brielle, pays tribute to Mint Condition with the cover of “Breakin’ My Heart” (Pretty Brown Eyes). The track is from her “Will You Go With Me?” mixtape, coming out July 9th.
Of course we had to post the original version:
Michelle Williams is having quite a busy year. The songstress just wrapped Fela! and is now prepping the release of her forthcoming gospel-inspiration album (not yet titled) via her label eOne Music. Here is her new track, “If We Had Your Eyes.”
I’m a weapon for Saturday…I’m the house that fell on the bitter witch. I’m the baddest bitch in a biker flick, and I always get my way, always get my way…
Lolo pulls out the big guns for her latest single, “Weapons For Saturday.” With the assistance of co-producer Mark Batson (Dr. Dre/Eminem), the 25-year-old Tennessee native brought so much edgy drama to the track that it sounds like it could be in the opening credits of a James Bond film. Take a listen:
