Now you know, many artists today are sampling classic songs from back in the day into their own to try and execute that feel good sound with their unique twist – but many also fail the true knowledge and appreciation of music from that time era… But that’s a different story for a different day.
If you are a true fan of that good ol’ face scrunching, body rolling, butterflies in your stomach when you hear the beat drop, 90′s R&B music, then you will love what I am here to introduce you to.
August Rigo, Toronto born Singer/Songwriter, recently has put out an EP that can be considered a tribute to some of the greatest R&B classics of the 90′s.
Entitled Summer of 95, he reincarnates a hand full of songs that we all love, putting his originality and a contemporary twist that makes it his own. Recreating songs such as Ginuwine’s ‘Pony‘, to D’Angelo’s ‘Brown Sugar‘, Rigo takes us on a stroll… Not down memory lane, but his lane. Re-introducing himself as an artist… He presents to you Summer of 95.
When I say I could not stop laughing… I could not stop laughing!
The “Puerto Rican Princess” can claim herself to be all the princess she wants to be and name herself the baddest bitch in the game but, lets all be honest.. This child of God has zero talent when it comes to creating music. Hernandez only gets the numbers she gets because she’s a successful sidechick turned wife and has a following that thrives off her reckless behavior.
Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’s Joseline Hernandez performed live at Medusa Lounge in Dallas, Texas and got booed so bad that Stevie J had to come and save her sad ass. Just watch!! Skip to the 2:44 mark and enjoy this comedic scene.
Is Lumidee making a comeback? With the recent release of about 4 singles with dope features like Chinx, I’m sitting back in curiosity to see how this turns out.
Don’t sleep- just because you may know her for her hit single Never Leave You (Uh Oh) which came out in 2003, doesn’t mean she stopped there. But this single.. Just might give her some heavy feedback for it has been released in perfect timing.
Featuring Bodega Bamz, this summertime feel of a song with a sampled beat by Clipse’s ‘Grindin’, Lumidee represents her culture and her hometown as she vibes out to this catchy track.
I’m pretty sure this was filmed around the time of the Puerto Rican day parade so it makes sense why all the flags are shown… Lumidee as a dog walker though? Hilarious but cute haha. Check it out
The hidden talent from Brooklyn, up-and-coming artist, Leikeli 47, comes out with another one for the summer.
F*ck The Summer Up includes the activities of Leikeli47 and her best friend on a hot summer day – riding bikes, water guns, and tons of friends at a house party.
Love it! Check it out.
Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj collab once again to create another banger Touchin, Lovin. This single, which is in his album Trigga which is available now on iTunes (you can purchase that by clicking on the image above), executes an entire flip around version of the late and great Notorious B.I.G’s ‘F*ck You Tonight’ featuring R. Kelly. “You must be used to me spending, putting in that time, touching, loving, crushing, can’t make up my mind.” Bravo to this song- perfect song for the season to bump through the clubs and on your lonesome. Nicki Minaj delivers a great verse in her feature and ultimately kills this song. I love when they collab, it’s always a success.
