Category: Song of the Day

Whatever we feel about Timberlake (the Boondocks joke: Michael Jackson is not a genre of music comes to mind), this song goes.

Thank you Timbaland.

And this video!  Man.  Bill Simmons called this ‘the white people’s Hit Em Up’, and he wasn’t wrong.  I mean, he got a straight Britney clone…

Enjoy!

The weekend is here, and I’ve been blown away.

The Gram, THE GRAM! of all places put this cover on my radar.

3000 is one of my all time favorite lyricists, and I’ve always loved this song.  As a singer though, I say with no arrogance we’re in the same league: ‘actor singers’.  People who may impress you at a karaoke bar, who wouldn’t embarrass themselves completely in a ‘La La Land’ type musical.

But to hear this song, sung by someone who can actually, as my people say, BLOW?

Man, I’m floating!

Have a good weekend gang.

New week.  Mood.

Enjoy!

One more song…

This is darkly comic now, but in my deep dive of Malcolm’s life there was a 48 hour period last week where I was listening to the full audio of ‘Message to the Grassroots’, and ‘the Ballot or the Bullet’, then Kanye went public calling a slavery a choice and I swear…

Sunday I’ll go into detail about where my head is at before the social media fast.

Have a good weekend.

Liquid lunches and reading and getting up a little bit earlier…almost that time.

I’ve already heard this ‘sign’ from three different places this morning.  Good time for it to be the Song of the Day.

Enjoy.

First, a serious editor’s note…

I did a quick scan to try to find an accurate date, it looks like 2013 was the last time a ‘Song of the Day’ was either from or had the hook sung by ‘you know who.’  So if the time has come for the Pied Piper of R&B to be held accountable, you already know where I stand.

Now on to more fun feelings.

How about a song from the Pulitzer winner?  That still kills me…

Enjoy!

The weekend is upon us!

Sad to hear it confirmed (including tonight) only 3 new episodes of Atlanta left this run.

As good of a day as any to cede the Thursday spot to Migos.

Have a good one folks.  You probably know what movie review is coming Sunday night.

Spotify damn near put me in the hospital this week; this falls under the ‘automatic shares when it pops up on my playlist’.

For 4 minutes, I completely forget I’m not 19 years old anymore.

College days…

Enjoy!

I know Homegirl was mentored by His Purple Highness obviously.  After a breakout ‘Hollywood’ year, this looks like the album (and tour) that will level her up to a higher level.

Digging what I’m seeing and hearing so far.

Enjoy!

The weekend is here!

Getting things done, so one song this weekend.  It’s getting super beautiful, super quickly in Cali right now, so this feels right.

Have a good one folks!
