Where ya’ll been?  Somewhere listening to Sam Smith, I would hope.  The album officially dropped last week and man, what a banger (just like I told you *ahem*).  If you’re planning on catching the US tour, I hope you already copped your tickets ‘cause, uh, the whole tour is pretty much sold out.  Fret not, though, I’ve got someone else you can check out and it’s just the kind of music you need for these sultry summer nights.  It’s the kind of music that’s a backdrop for summertime memories…get your listening ears on.

Who Dat, Harpo? Joonie

Hailin’ FromJacksonville, North Carolina

Spunky Calls It (Genre): Neo-Soul/R&B

What’s to like?If you’re a fan of artists like Bilal, Dwele, Eric Roberson, D’Angelo, Donny Hathaway or Van Hunt …you’re really gonna thank me for introducing you to Joonie.  His music is…well, it’s love music.  New love.  Old love.  And everything in between.  His latest project, Contrast, admires love on first sight, dances with the idea of forever and laments losing love.  You’ll find yourself not only singing along, but FEELING along.

Need a lil’ taaaaste?  Okay.

“Hey lover, you’re the essence of the song I sing and I’d do crazy things, crazy things, to show you what you mean to me/I could have the world but it could all fade away, I tell you this, I give it all up, baby, for you”

Listen …literally.  You need to jump into the links, immediately.

Welcome back, ya’ll.  I hope since our last encounter, you’ve been cramming lots of Prince EA down those ear canals…but I’m also hoping that you’ve left some room….’cause I come bearing more of that gooood good.

Who Dat, Harpo?  Sam Smith

Hailin’ From:  England, United Kingdom

Spunky Calls It (Genre):  Blue Eyed Gritty R&B w/A Side of Pop

What’s to Like?:  I don’t know if it’s just me and my somewhat addictive personality, but every now and again, I come across a song that I can’t help but listen to over and over and over again. I’m talking, HOURS of ‘on-repeat’ action, people.  Sam Smith’s Nirvana is one of those songs.  First, there’s his arresting voice that constitutes the perfect trifecta of smooth, strong and intoxicating …kind of like a top-shelf single malt Scotch Whisky.  Goes down nice and easy and leaves you with that warm tingling sensation.  And those high notes? Oh, yes sir, yes ma’am.  But if that weren’t enough, there’s the content.  The lyrics paint pictures on the heart’s canvas that we can all relate to.

It’s too late to run away from it all
It’s too late to get away from it all
I’m done with running so I give in to you

This moment has caused a reaction
Resulting in our reattachment

Oh you take me to nirvana
I don’t think this will last
But you’re here in my arms

Reconnecting with that ex that you knew you should have left alone because it obviously, would never actually work out, but decide to go with it anyway because…it just feels right in that moment?  Well, that moment is Nirvana.

Check it.

If you’re interested, Sam has a new album dropping in the U.K. and U.S. on May 26, 2014 and June 17, 2014, respectively.  I’ve already given it a listen, and trust me, you should definitely be interested.

CONGRATULATIONS to my boi Mr. Trafficaaaaaaaaa himself, Mr. Tony J on the 7th Annual Traffic Music Awards held in St. Louis last Sunday.  S/O to all the nominees, & especially the winners and artists that showcased their skills!  Its the Grammys & BET awards all wrapped in 1.  Next year #teamepic will make the nominee’s list fasho!!!

And here is the latest in SPORTS: Iverson is broke…& KOBE still sucks.

Soooo MICHAEL JACKSON and MIKI HOWARD had a son together?  LMAO @ MJ sleeping with a black woman. LMAO @ Blanket got another brother or uncle… LMAO @ them Joe’s lips tho…welp, I guess Billy Jean was his lover, she’s just a girl that claims that he was the one…n DNA says that’s his son *grabs crotch n stands on tippy toes*

I went to see SON OF GOD, no I didn’t fall asleep…but I didn’t get crunk about it till I heard my boo CEELO GREEN as the credits rolled….the scriptures were OFF…and the story improperly told, not to mention they failed to show the GOD in the SON….that grieved my spirit…I hope GOD’S NOT DEAD makes up for it…I’ll keep you posted!!

NEW MUSIC!!!!  From who?  Glad you asked….The Ill side’s greatest TBABY!!!!  OOOhhh Weeee!  I’m still bangin’ my favorite joint from ’08 LIKE A GIANT, now I got another one to add…it’s called Say Sum, check it out and let me know what y’all think…

I used to really be surprised that black women would get on TV and clown the way they do, until I saw the ‘QUEEN OF SOUL’ straight throw shade on PATTI LABELLE *gasp*….now if their old tails are actin’ like this at the WHITE HOUSE  there really might not be any hope for unity amongst the sisters….and did I say at the WHITE HOUSE?! During the WOMEN OF SOUL event….this double chinned heffa had the audacity to sing in a fur coat…WHO IS HER PUBLICIST?   I’m super sick of not being able to tell the difference between her stomach and her breasts….#learnhowtobuyabra

DON’T LET THE HEARSE BEAT YOU TO THE CHURCH!!!: RANCE ALLEN is still touring after 50 years of ministry!  His hair is a ministry all its own, I love it; it always looks so soft, and flows with every note he sings!!!!

Ok, ok, ok….@Mrcoreybarrett has a new joint SAVIOR, that is a EPIC track!  St.Louis has more than hip hop and R&B, I’m super proud of this brother…his live performance is an EPIC move of God….

I lost my mommy as a teenager, but God never let me go without good sound motherly advice & stern looks during church, thanks to ASSISTANT PASTOR ELAINE “YEYE” JACKSON of A.C.E. Ministries Inc, of Kansas City MO who will be marrying her boo REV. THOMAS RICE!!!  I’m so happy for the both of you.  Yeye you encouraged me when I felt like I was un-encouragable, unlovable, & just down right rebellious.  It was a privilege being groomed for ministry under you and BISHOP L.W & EFFIE BOLTON…you deserve all the happiness and joy marriage will bring you!  Love you both!

NEXT TIME…New Music coming from TechSupreme, TefPoe, & L7!!!!!!!….

Miracle & Blessings….
