New Track: Yuna – “Live Your Life”

 

Definitely one of our favorite voices right now – so refreshing, distinct with character. Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna recently released her inspiring “Live Your Life” single featuring production from none other than mister Pharrell Williams. The track is the first single from her upcoming self-titled album due this spring.

For those unfamiliar with Yuna, you absolutely must take a listen to her cover of Nirvana’s “Come As You Are” after the jump.

A couple weeks ago, we introduced you to First Serve, the brainchild of Plug 1 and Plug 2 of De La Soul a la their kooky video for “Mrs. Whittier.”

The “Looks Like We Made It Skit” continues on with the dream sequence-ish animations, and further provides setup on the story of two young dudes trying to make it in the rap game. You see Pos’ hairstyle, though?! Killing it.

Totally cute is this “Queen Of The Lot” video by The Spring Standards. The last time you probably saw puppets get down like this was in The Muppets. And even still, they may have not been quite as funky. The song itself is quite fantastic as well – makes us want to tumble down a grassy hill in carefree glee.

Rest In Peace, Don Cornelius

 

Don Cornelius, creator and longtime host of the iconic Soul Train show, passed away early this morning at the age of 75. Airing from 1970 to 2006, Soul Train went down in history as the longest running nationally syndicated program.

Having created the first major platform for Black entertainers and music in American households, Don’s contributions are truly immortalized – he will not be forgotten.
