Three time Grammy winning singer/songwriter/actress Jill Scott has officially sold out her 3rd Annual (Chicago) Summer Block Party, scheduled for July 22 at the Huntington Bank Pavilion. The summer concert will feature performances by Kelly Rowland, Nelly,
Bell Biv DeVoe, SWV, and more. Created by Scott and longtime business partner Shawn Gee in 2015, the Summer Block Party is produced by Live Nation Urban in partnership with radio station V103 and fills a void in the Urban Contemporary live music landscape. The live music festival has become the premiere music event for R&B devotees, and past performers have included Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Jazmine Sullivan, Ledisi, Tank and others. The Block Party has been gaining popularity and acclaim since it kicked off in Chicago in 2015. The producers have taken note and expanded the brand to its second market, announcing the 1st Annual Summer Block Party in Houston TX. The event is slated for July 2 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in partnership with Majic, 102.1 and Live Nation Urban. Confirmed performers for the festival include Brandy, Bell Biv DeVoe, SWV, Ro James and DJ Kid Cupri. Tickets can be purchased via LiveNation.com. OVO signee Majid Jordan and PARTYNEXTDOOR collaborate on the single “One I Want.” Drake shared the track yesterday, and now, the track appears on Soundcloud. PARTY and MJ aren’t shy when it comes to the object of their desire on the slinky, synth track. The track includes an infectious hook and throbbing beat that will rock speakers from beginning to end. It’s worth a listen. Singer/rapper Tory Lanez is ready to step back into the spotlight. Less than a year after the release of his debut album “I Told You”, the Toronto native has announced that his sophomore effort is nearly complete. He took to Twitter to make fans aware that new music is on the way.
