Just when you thought Beyoncé couldn’t get any bigger or blacker she hit us with a whole album inside of the new Lion King Soundtrack. “The Lion King: The Gift” executive produced by Mrs. Carter includes 14 tracks featuring Childish Gambino, Wale, Kendrick Lamar, newcomer Tierra Whack and even a cameo by heir to the throne Blue Ivy Carter. Of the 14 songs Beyoncé appears on 10. There we were bracing ourselves for new music during #virgoseason but September came early like a o
Beyoncé’s Homecoming is a visually brilliant celebration of black culture, pride, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The documentary written, directed and executive produced by Beyoncé Knowles-Carter chronicles the preparation, challenges and triumphs of the first black woman to headline Coachella. Mrs. Carter discusses postponing her 2017 Coachella performance due to pregnancy, delivering the twins via emergency c-section, and breastfeeding between rehearsals.
Teyana Taylor is a true performer. She dances like flames over discarded photographs. Her songs are melodic and exude a tortured melancholy tone. Her onscreen comedic timing as an actress is priceless, and she’s written songs for some of the biggest R&B acts in the game. Taylor was born and raised in Harlem, New York in the 1990’s and 2000’s.

We’ve been on high alert album watch since Beychella. Together Beyoncé and Jay-Z are The Carters and the album titled Everything Is Love dropped yesterday during your casual dinner conversation. The calculated Carter’s are crafty at catching them coins so here’s a heads up. The album has just nine tracks and is Jay-Z heavy and Beyoncé light. We all know the September Virgo is known for dropping albums in her birth month so stay tuned and keep one eye open for the 3am album dr
Not sure how you levitate past “Lemonade”, but if anyone can do it Beyoncé can. Beyoncé at Coachella also known as Beychella is her most grandiose performance to date. The show begins with dancers dressed in nefertiti bodysuits as Beyoncé appears dripping in her black panther best complete with killmonger colors. The set design had bleachers built to resemble a pyramid. There was a brass band on stage, picture a black college marching band swinging and swaying with the dancer
8760 hours flew by in the course of a year. There were a lot of late nights, struggle mornings, and more shots of espresso than we’d like to admit. We reviewed movies, tv shows, albums, and an iconic standup comedian that killed at The Fillmore. There were stories of devastating loss, The 50th Anniversary of The ’67 Detroit Riots and a protester named Kaepernick. We’re just beginning to take flight. Fly with us to Wakanda and beyond where vibranium feeds the soul and Walk Lik
