JAVIER FINALLY RETURNS with his new album "Come Through For You"

The album is in stores today, and features my boy Nasri on backing vocals on the song that he and his writing partner Adam Messinger wrote called "How Many People Can Say That".
A lot of people remember Javier as the first winner of The Voice.  I have been a Javier fan for the past 10 years.  He had a deal and put out two albums.  As a true testament that the labels don't recognize REAL talent, eventually he was dropped.  This was a sad day for music.  Thanks to The Voice, his career has been resurrected.  To celebrate, since there is no NEW video, I'd like to share with you the first time I ever heard and saw Javier.   Ladies and Gentlemen, I present "CRAZY".
Be sure to pick up the album.  One of the best storytelling songs of all times (guarantee to bring a tear to your eye), "OK, Here's The Truth" has been also resurrected and found a home on "Come Through For You".  You will love it.

SEXYBLACK FIRST LOOK: The Weeknd's "The Knowing" Music Video

This video is CRAAAZY!!!  But so artistic.  I love the Sci-Fi element, but it's a mindf@%k.  Enjoy.

SEXYBLACK FIRST LISTEN: Elle Varner, Mateo, Dawn Richard, PJ Morton, Jazmine Sullivan

Elle Varner -- Refill [SEXYBLACK PICK!!!]

Mateo -- Fool For You (w/ Dawn Richard) [HOT!!!]

Bruno Mars Makes It Rain On Ellen

This is a pretty decent song, and a pretty impressive performance.

Jojo Makes Everything Better...

Jojo reincarnates the US National Anthem.  Wherever she goes, whatever she does, the world responds.  She is THE most underrated vocalist in the industry right now.  Although you can't really see her, the video is still perfect... because of that voice.


SEXYBLACK REVIEW: Drake -- Take Care

My boy recently asked me my take on the new Drake.  So I gave it to him.  Remembering that that's what blogs are for, I am Now giving it to you:

On Take Care, Drizzy Drake simply maintains.  This album has a lot more slow cuts than his previous work, or any other notable hip hop record.   Although the beats have slowed, his talent for lyricism hasn’t waned.  It hasn’t improved, but it hasn’t gotten worse.  A lot of times, when artists reach the level of success that he has, whether it be the pressure to repeat, or the cockiness that comes with fame, the very thing that makes them talented becomes distorted and a watered-down version of itself.  But with Drake’s lyrics, he’s proven on Take Care, that it’s hard to improve on something that is almost perfect. 

The features are nice.  Rihanna’s is wasted on Take Care.  The song is good, but not epic.  His best flow comes on the Rick Ross collabo, which, oddly enough, seems to be who Drake REALLY shines with.  It is that song, and probably only that song, which will really have legs on radio.  This album has ended up being another ART piece, a good one at that, but not meant for commercial consumption, although, with the loyalty of Drake fans, I imagine he’s not concerned about his sales.  But with all the slow-cuts and the lack of hot hooks, you have to wonder how this album will perform live.  The Stevie Wonder feature is memorable and well-used.  It’s nice to here Three Stacks again, yet you gotta feel like his heart may not be in it.  Chantal Kreviazuk surprises on the heralding opening track, another possible single.  This album, however, does not move the crowd or get backbones sliding.  It is, none-the-less interesting, and a good listen.  Drake’s already starting to talk about his next project, which could be a collabo album with Rick Ross.  Now, I am not a Rick Ross fan, but the production he employs from such heavyweights as Just Blaze and more notably, the J.U.S.T.U.S. League, seems to be one of Drake’s hottest jump off points (Aston Martin Music was probably the best hip-hop joint of last year), so I am looking forward to more noise being made there than here.  That is my review.
