#PressPlay & Get Into Keeyen Martin's 'Suitcase'

Keeyen Martin is a name making it's rounds on the music scene here in Atlanta. You BabyKayKs who keep up with me on social media know him as one of the #ArtistsYouShouldKnow features I'm constantly posting. There are all sorts of artists out there these days, but Keeyen sets himself a part in so many ways. His voice is intricate, sweet, and even jovial somehow. I love it! His music not only sounds good, but because of his undeniable positive feels extra special too!

Will Smith's Birthday Message to Jada is The Cutest!!

One of my favorite celeb couples has to be the union of Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith! Even though for some strange reason people have tried time and time again to separate these two in the media, their love has proven every time that it is alive and well.

Tamar Releases Visual for Album Opener, Angels & Demons

Tamar better get this coin honey! I feel like this chick is everywhere right now, and whats crazy is she hasn't even really began the real album promo run. She recently revealed the cover art (above) for her new album, Calling All Lovers which was set to drop this month. It's been pushed back a little, but that isn't stopping Tamar from giving her Tamartians the attention we are all craving. From Dancing With the Stars, to Braxton Family Values, and The Real.. this baby is everywhere!

Wondaland's Deep Cotton Releases Visual for their Jam "Let's Get Caught"

Janelle Monae and her Wondaland crew have dropped some real jams in recent months. They are coming in and taking over your radio, and I for one welcome it. It's refreshing! Every artist on the team has a unique sound and offering that they bring to the table. This is evident with one listen to their EP, The Eephus. The team is super talented.

BuzzFeed Releases Powerful, "I'm Muslim, but I'm Not" Video

This super cool video from the Buzzfeed staff is on time! In the wake of the story of 14 year old Ahmed Mohamed's arrest for being smart, Muslim, and brown.. some of us need a friendly reminder of what all Muslims are not. We need a reminder that our brothers and sisters who are Muslim are everyday people just like us, and that their faith doesn't make them terrorists or dangerous.

New Artist Ash Delivers with "The Perfect EP" + See Her Visual for 'Anyway'

My Spelman College Glee Club experience was one I will never forget. Even though I left Glee for the Jazz Ensemble after a year, I still kept tabs on the incredible voices displayed during their rehearsals/performances. This artist was one of those voices.

Beyonce's Family Dedicated Songs to Her for Her Birthday Tribute! I Love Blue's Pick!

Yesterday was a holiday for many people. It was the birthday of King Bey, and everyone knows that Bey Day is a cause for celebration. Beyonce is easily the best performer of our time, and she's loved by many. Her birthday every year is a time for people to show her (more than usual) that they truly dig her as a person and as an artist.

This year, Tidal did a cute little blog dedicated to Bey. They had her family members share a song that reminds them of their relationship with her. Everyone from her parents to little Blue Ivy dedicated something sweet to Beyonce on her big day. Some of the songs bring back memories of fun times Bey shared with them. Some of the songs connect on a deeper and more emotional level.

This was a cute idea because songs often can relay feelings better than we can. I'm sure Bey had a beautiful birthday, and I know this tribute had something to do with it. Check out the song dedications to Beyonce below. Of course I love Jay's the most. He loves his bae! Happy Birthday Beyonce!
