Jacques Webster, known professionally as Travis Scott, is an American rapper/singer/songwriter/producer. Webster began his career as a record producer with a focus on hip hop production at the age of sixteen. He later entered a partnership with long time friend Chris Holloway, and the two formed the duo The Graduates. In 2008, the pair released their debut EP via social media site My Space. As a solo artist, Webster has released the mixtapes “Owl Pharaoh” (2013) and “Days Before Rodeo” (2014). He also released the full length studio albums “Rodeo” (2015), “Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight” (2016) and “Astroworld” (2018).
As an extension of his 2016 EP “TRU”, Atlanta based singer/songwriter Lloyd has just released the full length album of the same name. The album features four tracks from the EP plus seven new songs, including the single “Caramel.” Sevyn Streeter, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and The Spleman Woman’s Choir all make special guest appearances. During an interview with singersroom.com, Lloyd explained that his goal was to create a project similar to soul food. “TRU” is available now. Following the release of her 2016 EP “Jerk Sauce” and her 2017 effort “Come “Through”, singer Sade Serena returns with her brand new single “Swerve”, a duet with reggae singer Elephant Man. The track is perfect for a dancehall party and captures the heated moment while slow whining on a dance partner. Midway through, dancehall singer Elephant Man appears, adding his own flow. “Swerve” is worth a listen. Los Angeles based R&B singer/songwriter Kelvin Frazier, Ph.D recently appeared on singersroom.com’s “Voice & Acoustics”, a performance series that showcases the vocal delivery of singers with minimal instrumentation. For his live session, the crooner delivered a heartfelt rendition of his single “Heart’s Desire”, a record that should bring more understanding to relationships. Frazier was accompanied by guitarist Xerigo Ramos and pianist Jarvis Barnes. Fans may need to take a shower after watching Teyana Taylor’s latest dance video. For New York’s forthcoming fashion week, lingerie brand Agent Provocateur has enlisted Teyana to be the brand ambassador for their fall/winter 2018 lingerie line called “The Power of the Provocateur.” Make-up was done by Isamaya Ffrench and styling was done by Ursina Gysi. Teyana plays the character “Petunia Provocateur” for the campaign, which was shot and directed by Charlotte Wales and shows Taylor gyrating in various unmentionables to the Exile hit “I Want To Kiss You All Over.” Taylor had no choreographer. The entire clip was improvised. Not since her appearance in Kanye West’s “Fade” video have fans seen Taylor like this. Singer Bryson Tiller will release his album “Serenity” soon, but in the meantime, he’s delivered three songs to tide fans over until “Serenity” is available. He’s covered SZA’s “Normal Girl”, then remixed Tory Lanez’s “Leaning”, adding a verse in the beginning. The remix follows their collaboration “Keep In Touch.” Rapper Eminem just released the album “Kamikaze”. This comes as a pleasant surprise to fans, as the Detroit native never officially announced the album or a release date. 6Lack has finally shared the follow up to his 2016 effort “Free 6Lack.” The 26-year-old revealed yesterday that “East Atlanta Love Letter” will be available on September 14. He also unveiled the project’s artwork. Select fans were the first to know, receiving custom postcards from 6Lack directly that featured questions regarding love. Back in June, 6Lack released “Switch”, which found the MC coping with heartbreak. “Switch” was followed by “Nonchalant” earlier this month. It’s unclear whether the songs will be included on “East Atlanta Love Letter.” Additionally, 6Lack announced his own headlining global tour a few weeks ago. “The East Atlanta With Love Tour” will visit 34 cities and begin on Oct. 5 in South Africa before coming stateside in November.

J.J. Fad is an American female rap group from Rialto, California, a city in the Inland Empire east of Los Angeles. The name was initially an acronym of the original member’s names (Juana, Juanita, Fatima, Anna and Dania), but after a line-up change, it stood for Just, Jamming, Fresh and Def. J.J. Fad was formed as a quintet in 1985 with a line-up that consisted of Juana Burns (MC J.B.), Dania Birks (Baby D), Anna Cash (Lady Anna), Fatima Shaheed (O.G. Rocker) and Juanita Lee (Crazy J). J. J. Fad was one of the original acts signed to Ruthless Records by rapper Eazy E. In 1987, the group released the single “Another Ho” with “Supersonic” as the B side produced by Arabian Prince. Due to management and financial disagreements, Cash, Shaheed and Lee left the group, leaving J.J. Fad a duo consisting of Burns and Birks. They were joined by Michelle Franklin (Sassy C) and DJ Train. Together, they re-recorded and re-released “Supersonic” in 1988, this time as an A side. It sold 400,000 copies independently before rapper Eazy E and Jerry Heller secured the group a recording contract with Atco Records. The single was followed by the album “Supersonic”, which was produced by Arabian Prince, who made J.J. Fad accessible to pop audiences. J.J. Fad was the first female rap group nominated for a Grammy award, and the album and single “Supersonic” were certified gold. The group followed up “Supersonic” three years later with “Not Just A Fad” in 1991. The group disbanded shortly thereafter. After a two decade hiatus from the music industry, the group reunited and performs at old school and freestyle concerts.

LaBelle is an American all female R&B vocal group that rose to prominence during the 1960’s and 1970’s. The group was formed after the disbanding of two rival girl groups in the Philadelpia/Trenton area, the Ordettes and the Del-Capris. They later changed their name to The Blue Belles, and later The Bluebelles. The group’s original line-up consisted of Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendrix, Sarah Dash and Cindy Birdsong. The group initially found success with ballads and doo-wop style numbers, most notably “Down The Aisle (The Wedding Song”, “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Over The Rainbow” among others. Following Cindy Birdsong’s departure to join the Supremes in 1976, the remaining trio, at the suggestion of manager Vicki Wickham, changed their look, musical direction and style and reformed as LaBelle in 1971. After adopting glam rock and sporting outlandish space-age glam rock costumes, the group found success with the single “Lady Marmalade” in 1974. The song was taken from the album “Nightbirds”, which was the group’s most successful album. LaBelle disbanded in 1976. Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendrix and Sarah Dash all went on to have successful solo careers.

R&B duo Jake & Papa has released several singles throughout the year, and now they return with the EP “The R.O.S.E. Tape.” The project features six songs that probably didn’t make the cut from their forthcoming EP “Tattoos & Blues”, due this fall. “Yaeyae” contains a bouncy hook, and “Always Be” contains a sample of the Mariah Carey hit “Always Be My Baby.” Fans will enjoy this one. Last Thursday, New Edition members Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins visited Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.” During the 40-minute interview, the group discussed the upcoming BET movie “The Bobby Brown Story”, set to air on September 9, a forthcoming tour and why Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill were absent. Bobby Brown also revealed that he felt responsible for Ricky Bell’s drug addiction and shared his thoughts on rapper Pusha T.’s album cover, which shows the drug infested bathroom of his late ex-wife Whitney Houston. Needless to say, the interview was entertaining and enlightening. Miguel’s visual “Banana Clip”, taken from his latest album “War & Leisure”, will get the Spanish treatment on the upcoming deluxe edition. Directed by Manson, the lo-fi clip sees a juxtaposition between flirty, feminine, fancy and militant women in the name of love. Miguel relaxes in the back seat of a car before the women join him for a secretive mission. “Banana Clip” is worth watching. From the late 1980’s to the early 1990’s, singer/songwriter Melisa Morgan blessed R&B fans with her incredible voice. She began her career as a background vocalist for Chaka Khan and Whitney Houston before emerging as an artist in her own right with such hits as “Do Me Baby”, “Love Changes”, “Fool’s Paradise” and “Still In Love With You.” Morgan continues to tour and participate in musical projects. She just released the album “Love Demands” via Cleopatra Records. It’s her first project in ten years. The album features six new songs as well as covers of songs by Al Green, Aretha Franklin, The Supremes and Otis Redding. Today marks what would have been Michael Jackson’s 60th birthday. The icon will live on through the celebration of his music. In honor of the milestone birthday, the King of Pop’s team enlisted the services of producer Mark Ronson to create a special mix of MJ classics. The 5-minute club ready tribute, titled “Diamonds Are Invincible”, includes such favorites as “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough”, “Smooth Criminal”, “Human Nature” , “The Way You Make Me Feel” and more. According to Ronson, working on “Diamonds Are Invincible” was an awe-inspiring and insanely intimidating task to put together. May the King of Pop rest in peace. Nao returns with the single “Make It Out Alive”, a duet with fellow singer Sir. Taken from her sophomore album, Nao brings her vocals to the song , proving her ability to convey emotion through music and lyrics. Sir’s distinctive vocals flow effortlessly with hers, creating a truly supreme collaboration. Noa’s highly anticipated sophomore album is due out later this year. Following the release of the single “Holy Shit” earlier this month, rapper Amir Obe unveiled the rest of his album “Can’t Be A_Here: Chapter 1” on Friday. The four track project will be the first of a three part series. The project follows the Detroit native’s 2017 EP “None Of The Clocks
Work.” The first installment takes listeners into Obe’s trials and tribulations, where he exposes the demons that have plagued him throughout his life. For the follow up parts of the project, fans can expect a more positive, uplifting vibe from Obe, as he begins his ascension from hell to heaven. Following the underground success of his single “Leave Me Alone”, rapper Flipp Dinero signed a contract with We The Best Music Group and Epic Records yesterday. Dinero’s debut album will be released soon.
