New Track: B.Jamelle – “Marsy Muse”


DC based singer B.Jamelle comes equipped with a voice so buttery that we’re doing the most right now to keep the fluster off our faces right now with these heart palpitations. It’s wrong, really. Think a divine mixture between Muhsinah and Jazmine Sullivan. Have a little aural gander at “Marsy Muse” produced by Slimkat78 below and let us know if you don’t break out into a cold sweat yourself.


Video: Avan Lava – “It’s Never Over”

Back in January, we posted the video of Brooklyn’s Ava Lava in their live performance of “It’s Never Over” and it was totally party time. But have you seen the official video with all its freakin ridonkulous choreography (that’ll make you wanna move all your living room furniture and join the eff in like it was your destiny)?

Yes, that was a serious parenthetical reference. Now, quit judging us and look into your own soul if you aren’t already busting a move mid lost mind.

Video: Selah Sue – “This World”


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

This girl is darling. Teetering on the edges of soul, hip-hop, electronic, and reggae, Belgian singer Selah Sue has got one of those distinct cooing voices reminiscent of Nneka. Watch her most recent video above which features the track, “This World.”

Initially just another unassuming angsty teenager posting song drafts on MySpace, Selah’s music heavily resonated with a surprise internet audience and in just two short years’ time, has landed her the opportunity to work with Cee-Lo, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Prince.

Her debut self-titled album is set to come out in the US soon and features production from Farhot, who also produced for Nneka.

Alabama Shakes is straight flavor – southern rocked out vibes with a serious groove and a leading voice that’ll dig right into your skin. Exhibit A: the “Hold On” above – questions? Yeah, we didn’t think so.

The group’s debut album, Boys & Girls, is out on iTunes now and will be in stores (and Amazon) on Tuesday, April 10. Get on that – thank us later.
