musical-notesR&B singer Trevor Jackson recently rocked a sold out show at the Rough Trade in Brooklyn, New York. Jackson, a bonified performer and student of R&B, was draped in indigo and magenta light, as almost a nod to his “Rough Drafts 2” album cover. This was the last show of his tour. The show was a perfect combination of traditional and new wave aestheticism, trap influence and soul. He performed several hits, including “Right Now” and “My Crocs.” Fans will also be happy to know that Jackson is working on a new album. He’s definitely one to watch. Rising Motown signee Gene Moore just released the single “Won’t Be Moved”, co-written by BJ the Chicago Kid and produced by Cedric “Ced” Smith. A wordplay on the classic protest anthem “I Shall Not Be Moved”, “Won’t Be Moved” is about not letting the tribulations of life get the best of you. The accompanying music video was directed by photographer/director Derek Blanks. Grammy-winning producer Mustard just released the album, “Perfect Ten.” The 10-track project features special guest appearances by 1 TakeJay, Migos, Elle Mia and Ty Dolla $ign. Over the years, the South Los Angeles native has produced tracks for Tyga, 2Chainz, Y.G. and Elle Mia, who became one of the biggest female artist of 2018. “Perfect Ten” is Mustard’s debut album on his own label. Coined with the term “ratchet sound”, the album includes songs that will remind listeners of the West Coast Hip Hop flow with a twist of modern Hip Hop and R&B. The album is a reflection of Mustard’s life and what he’s accomplished in recent years, with the success of his business and personal life. Earlier this month, Mustard was honored by Los Angeles City Council President J. Wesson for his longtime commitment to giving back to the community, making June 19th, “Mustard Day.” Mustard will join Meek Mill, Future, YG and Megan Thee Stallion on the Legendary Nights tour, beginning Aug. 28. Fans can enjoy “Perfect Ten” on all streaming services. Rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is still on the go in support of his latest album “Hoodie Szn” seven months later. Boogie doesn’t abide by the rules of gravity in his new music video “Swervin”, which was released yesterday. The clip shows the Bronx native in the midst of a chaotic plane ride that caught fire and was headed for a crash landing. The scene then flips to Boogie hanging out in his dressing room with his girlfriend. He then wakes up as a test subject under the watchful eye of doctors in a barren white laboratory, but that switches to the 23-year-old throwing  dollars in a strip club. One noticeable omission was the contributions of the late 6ixine to the standout track. “Swervin” scaled the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year, peaking at No. 38 in January.
