Music Video: Plan B - Prayin' (Extended Version)

So the first time I heard this song was when Plan B amazingly performed this for C4's Evo Music Rooms final show. I have to say, it was EPIC and the very reason why I want to see him perform live more and more! Three backing singers and a full 10 piece band (ok slight exaggeration but close enough) it was GREAT.

Now the video... fantastic! Loving Plan B for his story telling video's but this is simply amazing. The choreography styled nicely into the acting is a great touch, and the Crunk dancing at the end of the video is crazy, but it works so well.

Loving the track, loving the video and most importantly... Im loving PLAN B.

Music Video: Tinchy Stryder - Gangsta

Absolutely loving this new one from the Stryder Man. The grimey piece with Tinie Tempah at the end is amazing... Im guessing that part, is a completely different song right? Either way Tinchy gets my thumbs up with this one. It seems as though the major signed artists are breaking out to do their own thing these days... first Chippy with Superstar, now this... is it even allowed lol.

Jessie J 'Whose Laughing Now' Rehearsal

Black Beauty... But Not So Beautiful in Fashion?

"The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice", although the Fashion industry certainly does not have this way of thinking. I came across this great documentary on Sarah Young's blog and I definitely had to share this with all my followers. The documentary highlights that only 6% of Cat Walk models are Black, 6% are Asian, 1% are Latino and 87% are White. Plan and simple this is racism and the shocking thing is, the Fashion Industry gets away with it. Its about time we question... WHY?

Would love to get a debate started on this one, please leave your comments and thoughts below.

Music Video: Dirty Money - Hello Good Morning ft Rick Ross & T.I.

This video is simply too much... I wonder how many times they had to do the fireworks scene at the end - Im thinking ONCE lol twice max hehe

Music Video: Beyonce - Why Don't You Love Me

Wow all I can say is that I think Beyonce has been spending waayyyy too much time with Lady GaGa lol. Loving the old skool 50's feel to this video. The track was written by Beyonce's younger sister Solange and is a bonus track being added to the deluxe edition of the 'I am... Sasha Fierce' album... NICE :)

Music Video: Esmee Denters - Love Dealer ft Justin Timberlake

I have to say, I'm really feeling this Esmee Denters chick! I loved her vocals in Chipmunk's most recent single 'Until You Were Gone' but this track has seriously just put her on the top of my list! Its safe to say that any track JT touches, simply turns to gold and he really hit the jackpot when finding this talented young lady. Check out the video:

The Stow - Just Another Band

The Stow... Just another band? Hmmmm, I think NOT! Although the title of their debut EP - The Stow are definitely NOT 'Just Another Band'.
So I first came across these guys at Urban Development's Industry Takeover '10 to Watch for 2010' session in February. Along with the likes of brilliant acts such as Cherri V, Clement Marfo & The Frontline, Maverick Sabre and Mikell Pane - these guys seriously had me rocking with pure joy and excitement. The energy and passion they carried through their performance, was so rejuvenating as their sound was completely new to me.

The band collaborate a number of genres into their sound, this in particular is why I think they are so unique. A three piece band with a rapper and a soul singer - what more could you ask for? The set up is genius! Its hard to believe they have only been together for just over a year, as they have seriously mastered the delivery of their music.

The EP 'Just Another Band' is a great collection of tracks. Cheeky East Londoner hip hop and soulful lyrics, mixed pretty nicely with an indie pop arrangement, very nice indeed. Loving the songs about killing a man, another about the fact you don't know me but I know I wanna... well, I'm sure your catching my drift. Here is the track listing:

  1. Round and Round
  2. Mamma
  3. Doubt Remains
  4. Butterfly
  5. None of the Above
  6. Thank Music
  7. You Don't Know Me
