The day has finally come people! D’Angelo actually released an album! So far, I like what I hear and I better after having to wait this long, shoooot.
It is what you would expect from him, funky, soulful sounds with mesmerizing vocals. If you’re a fan of his work or unfamiliar, I would say get acquainted.
Javotti Media, is an independent label that Talib Kweli established in 2012. He released a mixtape today called The Cathedral. If you are looking for some more hip hop and being introduced to some singers you may not have been familiar with, check it out! I am in the midst of listening to it right now and so far, I am enjoying it! You can listen to the full mixtape below:
The reason why I am touching on this artist and group is because they covered the same song, but to me I feel like they both did such a good job that there isn’t a version I prefer over the other. Have a listen and enjoy both versions 🙂 This is my first time using a poll!!! I would love for you all to participate.
Today’s choice was Sam Cooke’s “Chain Gang”. This song brings me back to my childhood and all of the house parties I would go to with my parents. This song was definitely one that would be played and we had no issue with it. As children I think we really liked making the grunting sounds haha. Just thought I would be nostalgic and share this song with you today. Enjoy! If you would like to send me some song recommendations, I would absolutely appreciate it.
