NEW FAVOURITES

 

 

Hi Readers

Who has been enjoying the sun and good music to add to the heat?

I have just put another FIRE playlist for this week. Please let me know your thoughts about the playlist.

 

TAMMY RIVERA “All These Kisses

The beautiful Singer, Swimsuit Designer  TV personality of Love & Hip-Hop  Tammy Rivera recently shared what she has been working on in the studio to some of her fellow crew members whilst in Jamaica.  Tammy revealed that her songs are about her pain and love dedicated to her rapper husband Wacka Flocka.

I am very much looking forward to hearing the other songs especially the one that was heard by the other LHHA members a few weeks back. On the other hand I really like “All Of These Kisses” it makes me feel warm, like I want to lay somebody with somebody with some kisses. Big up yourself Tammy the song it HOT and has been on repeat for the past 2 weeks.

SHYSTIE “WAKE UP”

Shystie one of the UK’s favourite female rapper is back with a brand new track called “Wake up”. This time she has teamed up with  Ads Valu who is signed to F-Block Music and has worked with Vanessa White on her E.P “Chapter 2.”

Wake Up has a nice drum and bass sound, it’s not too heavy and deep. However it will definitely have you bopping your head and tapping your foot. I like the fact that its one of those songs that will grow on you and also it’s good to hear Shystie on different sounds. I also like how distinctive she sounds.

VALENTINO KHAN “PUMP”

I heard “Pump” on DJ Target’s show on BBC 1xtra and I like it. I am a fan of house and Edm sounds so when I heard pump it was quite refreshing as I havent heard a quality commercial dance production in a minute. This prodcution is great to work to in the gym, at raves/parties and it just makes gassed for summer.

 

What do we know about Valentino Khan?

The producer makes everything from hip hop club anthems to dance music hits. . He has produced hip hop sounds for multi-platinum and Grammy award-winning artists such as B.o.B., T.I., Bruno Mars, 2 Chainz, Iggy Azalea, Tyga and Kid Sister.

DATING ETIQUETTES

dating-etiqutte-e1495727014152

Welcome to the TEA blog.

I wanted to make my first post about the dating stages and how first impressions are important.

There are little things that women look out for in men and I like to call them dating etiquettes.

  1. If you have both agreed on a time to meet up and the guy is running late it is courtesy to let the girl know so at least it puts her mind at ease. Do not arrive late and then tell her ‘I’m on the way’ as she will already be pissed off for at least 30 minutes and the date night will not go as planned. By the way this does apply to women as well but for some reason some guys seem to have a problem with communication.

2. EFFORT is a big thing when you both dedicate the time to get to know each other. Effort is a big thing for women from the minute the man comes in to her presence. Women tend to check out the clothes, particularly the shoes and the cologne. Believe it or not but how a man smells is very important, its kind of like a turn on or turn off thing for women.

Make the effort to compliment each other and smile. I know a lot of the time making eye contact is awkward especially if you really like the person but this is what makes dating interesting.  The communication is a big thing as well so if you struggle to find things to talk about especially on the first the date, I suggest you talk about the first time you met and find out what the attraction was and just keep the conversation simple and have light banter.

Now I wont go into too much about who pays for what as I think team work makes perfect sense and I do think you should go halves but if the guy insist on paying then that’s even better but the woman should insist on paying for the date the next time.

3. Once you have spent good time together always thank each other for enjoying each others companies.  However the most biggest thing that women love is when the guy says ‘Let me know when have got home safely’. OMG I can not let know how important those words are in every aspect of relationships, for women this makes them feel safe and that guys truly cares for her safety. To fair that initiative should be a natural thing for everyone really.

4. When you are getting to know someone there’s always that issue on how many times you should communicate with each other. If a woman is constantly on the guys line then he may think she’s clingy and just too much, however the guy doesn’t make that much effort then he either is not interested, speaking to other women or just simply busy.  To be honest there is no rule for how much you contact each other and try to find a balance. If you don’t meet up every week then at least drop a text or call each other and if you do meet up every week etc then you don’t really need to communicate that much but just send each other ‘Morning, have a nice day’ texts. Just keep it simple. Women love when guys make that small effort to just check in.

 

Remember there is no real rule but just be more aware that first impression count if you want to take dating to the next stage.

SO YOU LIKE EACH OTHER, WHAT NEXT?

We now what we expect from each other and now we have discovered that we like each other a lot more. This is where most guys fail. Understand that just because you have told the woman that you like her, it doesn’t mean that the efforts stop.

In the first instance when a guy tells a woman that he likes her they don’t really pursue the woman properly because the woman is now thinking “What are you doing to let me know that you truly want to get know me?” As the man here is what you should do to keep her interested in you.

  1. Talk is cheap and in 2017 telling each other that you like each other IS NOT ENOUGH!! Make suggestions to meet up maybe to talk or do something interesting.

2. If you suggest to the lady “Come to my place and chill” then make that chilling time so comfortable that she leaves thinking that you are a gentleman. Guys please understand that when a woman wants to chill with you and especially whilst you are in the dating stages, she does not want to jump into bed or immediately have sex with you. THIS IS WHERE MOST OF YOU ARE FAILING. Chilling time is talking, laughing and just enjoying each others company without intercourse. Listen to what she saying about herself, her life what she likes and dislikes and just respect her wishes.

3. Making effort to meet up has to come from both. Guys stop telling the girl that you like her but yet still she is the one that makes the effort to communicate with you more than you do with her. There has to be a balance with this, take it in turns to communicate with each other.  When a woman tells a guy that she likes him and pursues  the guy, it is now up to him to show how he appreciates her efforts. This applies to both men and women.  Show love and appreciation to each other.

4. Lastly remember you don’t have to talk or see each other every day or every week. Remember you are just dating with the hope that it leads to relationships/partnerships. Give each other space and don’t be too distracted with each other to the point where you forget about your own life. You may not be sure about each yet so it is ok to have options and not give each other the full 100.

NEW FAVOURITES

Hey readers,

I am happy to share to with you the latest playlist. There has been lots and lots of new songs and Ep releases just lately, lol I just can’t keep up.  I have some fresh and some tracks that has been floating on the airwaves.

LETS GET INTO IT!!

 

Bryson Tiller

 

True To Self is made up of 19 tracks including the Intro and Outro, which seems to reflect the real Bryson Tiller. Some track such as “Self Made”, “Before You Judge” and “Money problems.”  We can definitely hear Bryson deep in his feelings. I love the production on “Before You Judge.” However my favourite track is “Run Me Dry”, the minute I heard the beat, th drop and the catchy chorus I instantly knew this was THE BEST SONG on the album. I feel that Self Made is one of those albums where you literally search for the track that gets the attention immediately.

Akelle Charles (WSTRN)  feat Letisha Gordon & Tally  “Waiting”

This little gem has been receiving a great response since it got the first exclusive play on BBC 1xtra. I said last year that UK R&B is on the rise and there are a good handful of UK female singers that are now receiving the attention that they truly deserve. Letisha a singer/songwriter has been on the scene for a good few years as I remember seeing her perform at a live show a few years back. I know that Letisha has featured on tracks with Ghetts, Dapz On The Map and now Akelle Charles and recently supported US artist Elhae on his UK performance.

SM Feat. Jordon King & Monique Lawz “LADY”

 

I first heard this track on the radio and I liked the chorus instantly. I’m glad to be adding it to the Inspire playlist even if it has been out for a minute. “Lady” is produced by SM   London producer / artist SM the Enigma enlists UK R&B frontrunner Jordan King.

Jordan King is one of the UK’s most hotly tipped newcomers in urban music, fusing RnB and Soul in his progressive sound.

Jordan has been able to grace stages with some of the UK and US’s hottest artists including Tinie Tempah, Lloyd, CoverDrive and Kano, so there is no doubt that in time we will be seeing and hearing even more of this multi-talented musician.

Monique Lawrence “Lawz” is the uprising UK singer/songwriter who I have been hearing great things about from various tastemakers/influencers. 2015 was the year that Monique decided to tease the industry with what she’s all about with the release of her single ‘ON’, taken from the same titled debut EP via independent record label Gold Roar Music. The project featured production from Joey Dyer (Fancy, Iggy Azalea) and artist features from Ms Banks, Shystie, Johnson Orchid and Grammy Award nominated singer-songwriter Kevin McCall.

Just last year  (2016), Monique collaborated with producer and rapper Ayo Beatz to deliver the hot hip-hop anthem ‘LIVE IT UP.’ The track was selected to be part of the soundtrack for ‘The Intent,’ a UK movie written by Femi Oyeniran. Monique then followed her 2016 initial release with ‘Body Count,’ a sexy RnB number featuring Ms Banks and produced by Wez Mouria (NaughtyWords).  ‘Body Count’ became popular amongst many industry taste makers and received heavy support from the likes of BBC 1Xtra and more.

2017, Monique’s been hard at work, perfecting her craft in the studio. Creating magic with an array of UK and international producers/musicians, Monique is now gearing up for the release of her highly anticipated EP ‘Breaking The Lawz.’ The first release from the EP is U.F.U produced by Karmah Cruz.

‘Breaking The Lawz’ is scheduled for release in August 2017.

NEW FAVOURITES

 

Hi readers

The sun is out and most feel good when the sun is shining. Whats your feel good song right now? I have some banging tunes to share with you that sound so sweet.

 

 Jarreau Vandal Ft Oliver Nelson “Someone That You Love”

Jarreau is a DJ/Producer from Amsterdam and is signed the LA label Soulection. He describes his sound as RnB and soulful with hints of electronic. Which I would very much agree with.  Oliver Nelson is a singer songwriter from London. Some blog sites are comparing her vocals to Rihanna. Personally I don’t think she sounds like RiRi. Oliver clearly has her own unique vocals and it sounds so good on this track.

Find out more about Jarreau in this interview he done back in 2014.

SYD  “Know”

Syd is the lead vocalist of the soul band The Internet. Syd is making up a lot of noise with her music as she brings something different to the table. The singer/songwriter, producer/ DJ released her debut solo single “All About Me” in January of this year. It was produced by The Internet cohort Steve Lacy. Syd later released , her second solo single “Body” in anticipation for her album in collaboration with Columbia Records, Fin which was released on February 3, 2017.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syd_(singer)

I am loving her track “Know” which is being played a lot on the airwaves. The album is sick and I would recommend all of you RnB fans to check her out.

Missy Eliott “I’m Better” Remix

 

Just last night Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott put up the remix to “I’m Better” which  features Lamb and friends Lil Kim, Trina and Eve. It’s a good female line up, even Kim came with her hard bars “Your man is a dog, he chase my kitty he says my pu**y is wet.” Personally Trina and Eve excite more on this remix and I love that only Missy can pull her own song 2x on a remix. “I’m Better” came with a dance trend as nearly every street dance choreographer and dancers were imitating the badass routines.

NEW FAVOURITES

 

 

Hello readers

Hope you have all listened and downloaded the tunes from the last NEW FAVOURITES- NEW MUSIC FROM BEENICE, CODE NINETY + MORE.

 

On this weeks New Favourites I have some FIRE, BADASS and summer jams that you should also have on your playlist.

 

MABEL FEAT. KOJO FUNDS ‘Finders Keepers’

This is one of top favourites at the moment. My readers should know by now that I really like Mabel’s music, she’s just so different and really hope she keeps up the consistency. I realised the other day when I was listening to the beat that it’s the same beat from Lumidee feat fabolous ‘Never leave you (uh oh).’  I love that Mabel and Kojo Funds have done like a 2017 remake and it would be so cool if they made the video similar too.

J HUS ‘Did You See’

Those who follow me on snap chat will know how much I like this tune. I have already claimed Did You See to be THE SUMMER ANTHEM 2017!!. I think most of the sounds at the  carnivals and festivals will be playing J Hus amongst the other big tunes to bless our ears. J Hus has just completed his album ‘Common Sense’ which is expected to be  released on Black Butter Records May 12th Did You See has reached  over 8 million+ views since it was released 2 months ago, in the top 40 official chart.

KENDRICK LAMAR ‘Humble’

Kendrick stays true to himself I love the old skool vibe on this, it reminds me of Dr Dre’s productions. The words ‘Be humble. Sit down’ are powerful and its a lyric that I’ve seen many quote it as a whats app or Facebook status. I must admit I have not listened to Damn yet how ever from what i’ve heard it sounds impressive especially the collaborations  with Rihanna and Mary J Blige.

DAMN. Available now http://smarturl.it/DAMN

 

 

 

TLC FEAT SNOOP DOGG  ‘Way Back’

 

They’re the best-selling American girl group of all time, back with their first album in fifteen years. TLC’s new single, Way Back, is now available everywhere!

It’s been a long time coming is what they say and to be fair the beat does have the classical snoop vibe from back in the 90’s.  However some how this works, well I like the production, the bridge where Chilli harmonises and the chorus is catchy.  Way Back is definitely a track to add to the playlist.  On the other hand I also heard that TLC have a tour in the pipeline which is a long time coming to be fair. I just hope that it will be a proper tour and not just a couple of performances in London.

NEW FAVOURITES- NEW MUSIC FROM BEENICE, CODE NINETY + MORE

Hello Readers

Apologies for the delay for New Favourites. There was a few teething problems however I am excited to be sharing with you what I have been blasting lately.

I am so happy to write this post, as some of you may know that  I love my music. It’s always a pleasure when artists send me new music, it makes me feel like I have a special delivery. I present to you the new playlist. New favourites is a feature that showcases new music.

CODE NINETY

It’s been awhile since the boys released new music and actually since Inspire last caught up with them. I remember it was this time last year when I last their last release of Parties N heartbreaks’NEW MUSIC FROM CODE NINETY -LADIES SPECIAL . Code Ninety are back with their new single ‘Love Again’ keeping the r&b/pop vibe and they sound a lot mature and better. Make sure you check out their music and the track ‘Closer’ which is another favourite.

BEENIICE

Again its been a while since Inspire last featured this guy.  BEENIICE ‘YOU ME LOVE’ BEENIICE has been putting in the work for a long time now but in the past 12 months I have noticed the graft with his music and BEENIICE as a brand.  I must say I was personally proud to see Jamaican/ UK Comedian White Yardie featuring BE for his promotion for the ‘Straight Outta Of Jamaica’ tour.

This is great to see as Beeniice has always been humble, positive and a hard worker.

I really like his spin on PartyNextDoor track ‘Run Up’ which features Nicki Minaj and Major Laser on the production.

BEE let me into his thought process for the this remix, here’s what he had to say

The song writing process. I heard the song, searched for the instrumental and thought let me add my flavour to this.

I heard the beat, the melody, flow, tempo, words and theme all came together. I wrote this song in about 30 mins. I recorded and mixed the track in my studio.
I always have a creative approach when writing songs. I use words to paint a picture and for those who listen keenly will realise that beneath the vibrant lyrics and delivery there is always a message in the song.
This track in particular is all about expressing emotions and feelings towards a special someone in your life as well as uplifting women letting them know that they are appreciated.

DANIEL CEASAR ‘Get You’
This track is not new as it was published last year December, however I had never heard it before until recently and I thought it sounded so dope. Get You is a real smooth, soul/ r&b sound.  I  don’t know about anyone else but for me I feel like there are certain songs and certain types of music that sound so so good on Sundays and this is that track that just sounds tremendous on Sundays and in general.

DALEY ‘Until the pain is gone’  feat. JILL SCOTT
I absolutely love this song. I know Daley has always been winning with the high pitches but his vocals on this song is on another level.  I feel this is a great collaboration and both Daley and Jill really bounce off each other harmonies and tones. Daley’s new anticipated album ‘The Spectrum’ is set to be release in the summer 2017.
Until The Pain Is Gone is now available to download

KARA MARNI ‘NO ORDINARY LOVE’
I am really loving Kara’s cover which originally belongs to the soulful singer Sade. I like that Kara has her own style and doesn’t sound like Sade. The 19 year old 19 has been busy in the studio working with the likes of The Invisible Men (Zayn, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea), Sebastian Kole (Alessia Cara, Jennifer Lopez), Shea Taylor (Beyoncé, Frank Ocean, Rihanna) to name a few and seems to be  crafting a sound that will undoubtedly give her many new fans in 2017.

KHALID ‘LOCATION’

You know when you hear a song and the lyrics are really relatable? Well when I heard ‘Send me you your location and lets focus on communicating and lets feel the vibrations’, I really felt vibes. The beat is nice and laid back which compliments Khalid’s vocals.  Location was released last year however the remix that features Lil Wayne and Khelani has been floating on the airwaves recently. I must say im not too keen on this remix with Lil Wayne’s short feature but this track is still heavy.
