ANGIE STONE BIOPIC IN THE WORKS

Back in 2016, talk of an Angie Stone biopic began circulating when the singer spoke of its development whilst on the red carpet for the Soul Train Awards. Although news quickly died down and no further word was received, Angie sparked excitement just hours ago by posting a casting call looking for actors to appear in said biopic.

SONG OF THE DAY: MISSY ELLIOTT feat. LAMB – I’M BETTER

This is probably one of the most slept on Hip Hop tracks of the last two years. I’ll admit when I first heard the song I wasn’t as in to it as ‘WTF (Where They From)’, released two years prior. We’re used to Missy singles having an obvious hook to sing along with but this doesn’t really have one and that can make it a … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: MISSY ELLIOTT feat.

SONG OF THE DAY: AALIYAH – LOOSE RAP

Can I get an amen for the ‘Aaliyah’ album? Hands down one of the greatest R&B records of ALL TIME. There are so many gems on this album that I’m sure other songs from it will feature on SOTD in the future. Many people will know the single releases (Rock The Boat, More Than a Woman, We Need a Resolution) but may not be so … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: AALIYAH – LOOSE RAP

MARIAH CAREY – WHEN THE REMIX IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL

In 1995 Mariah Carey released the smash hit song Fantasy from her fifth album Daydream. Accompanying the original release was a more hip hop driven remix featuring Wu-Tang Clan member Ol’Dirty Bastard. It would be this song that started a trend in Mariah’s career to take a more pop flavoured song and give it an urban makeover, oftentimes completely reinventing the original track with barely … Continue reading MARIAH CAREY – WHEN THE REMIX IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL
