Beat of The Week: Mavins “Looku Looku”

Don Jazzy is at it again!

The wonderful Mavins crew out of Nigeria has given us a fun song to rock out to for ages. “Looku Looku” is a great jam describing all of the nay sayers and haters in our life that we just need to learn to shake off. The song says to have no cares about haters and jealousy and continue to strive. The jam of bosses!  The fun video is set in a huge block party during the day and night and features many stylish outfits. The men are rocking casual street wear with stunning jewelry pieces while Di’ja and Tiwa rock urban contemporary pieces. The video is a great along with the positive message of the record. Enjoy!

Beat Of The Week: Pretty Ricky “Puddles”

prettyricky

Guess who’s baaaaaaaacccckk!!

The ORIGINAL ” Pretty Pretty Pretty Ricky Rickaay”  or Pretty Ricky as the world knows them to be have finally returned with an absolute smash. It’s been about 10 years since we first heard “Grind On Me” and about 7 years since we were all jamming to the “Late Night Special”.The group out of Miami Florida had a lot of success back in 2005-2008, until the group’s lead vocalist “Pleasure P” went the solo route.The group did replace the singer, but the sound was not the same and sales confirmed it. Now the group had joined forces again ad brought us their new single “Puddles” from their upcoming album. This song has been on repeat for two days straight, they have not lost their touch and we cant wait for the video! Take a listen below!

Beat of The Week: G-Rize Feat Chris DeShield “LIB Ladies”

For my LIB girls dem! #LiberianGirlsRock

Rising Liberian artist G-Rize has brought us another hit along with smooth crooner Chris DeShield called “LIB Ladies”. The video not only brings light to Liberia’s amazing talent, but our great fashion. The two super stars rock outfits with a hint of African print, while the lovely models dazzle viewers with custom made ankara and kente print pieces. Everything is on point in this video from the fashion, to the vocals and locations. This is a great song to rock with your fellow LIB or African sisters period! We can’t wait to see more from both great artists!

Nne and Ike Show Present “An African Valentine”

Hahaha very funny!

The dymnamic duo Nne and Ike have done it again with this Valentine day parody! The perfect mixture of hilarious scenarios, terrible acting (on purpose) and wit only most Africans would understand makes this clip one to have you ROTFL. Take a look at this belly buster above!

The red carpet was taken to another level

The biggest award show in music took place this Sunday and there were some great looks walking along the red carpet. Superstar acts from RIhanna to Paul McCartney graced the Grammy Stage and red carpet.We were all excited to view the great performances , but most of us were really waiting on the dazzling looks of the stars.  Every star has their own taste and this event was the perfect one to showcase their artistic creativity. Many acts passed with flying colors, while others lagged way behind.

Now everyone wasn’t fashion forward in our eyes when it came to the Grammys. Here are our picks for worst dressed…

1. Joy Villa

57th GRAMMY Awards - Arrivals

Girl!…*Blank Stare Emoji*

2. Zendaya

grammys-2015-zendaya

This girl is breathtakingly beautiful, but this dress looks like a frock it’s doing nothing for her natural silhouette, the cut makes her look much older and the lipstick choice is not the best. I believe with the right stylist she can really make a solid name for herself in Hollywood! Hey Zandaya girl!! Let us help you, you will absolutely LOVE your new looks!

3.Charli XCX

grammys-2015-charli-xcx

We really see where Charli was trying to take this look, we get it…it’s the Grammys….it’s the only time to show off creativity through fashion and not be bashed, but this look was not it. The satin tuxedo with the hot pink bow tie would have really been nice without her choice of shoe and the fur. I personally would have styled her with a brighter colored fur , or got rid of the fur all together and paired this look with a rocker style clutch covered in gems. The pink satin peep toe heels would have been replaced immediately with something neutral or even white.

Honorable Mention: Rihanna

grammys-2015-rihanna

When we see Rihanna we think of as little clothing as possible, that’s why when she showed up on the carpet this year in this dress everyone was a bit shocked because it was so much fabric. I will say I am down with the #RihNavy, but I am not feeling this dress, what I do feel is the way Rihanna carried herself in it. The dress was very playful and risky just like her personality! I’m not giving her Best or Worst dressed, I feel she walks in her own lane when it comes down to fashion.

Beat of The Week : Justine Skye Feat Tyga “Collide”

We can go all the time

The 19 year old self proclaimed “Purple Unicorn” Justine Skye has brought her fans and music lovers far and wide a banger. Justine’s smooth vocals over a Dj Mustard beat intertwined with Tyga’s Cali swag birth an amazing record. We love this song because you can ride smooth to it cruising in your car and jam with your friends and slow whine. Justine’s fashion is sick in this video from her ombre fur jacket to her bright purple hair, she is a rising star to keep an eye on,  Take a look at this fun video!
