New Music Fridays

IT’S NEW MUSIC FRIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What’s up my Goodies!!! Yesterday was my 28th birthday for the 2nd time, and ya girl kept it very simple which turned out to be a great birthday. It’s now officially Gemini season and this is the season when everything is LIT!! Thankfully I am off to enjoy this holiday weekend with my family and loved ones, and I hope the same goes for you guys as well!!!

Now let’s get into this new music!!! Gunna finally drops his sophmore album, that according to him, is showing more of his “other” side, his alter ego….to explain this best…Gunna is a lovely Gemini, and Gemini is known for duality, the twins, two personas, the best sign ever etc LOL What’s funny is on a few songs I did see the difference like on “Dollaz on My Head” featuring Young Thug that felt like a totally different Gunna. Now do I believe that this album can take the #1 spot…umm..I dont know, but I do believe that he will come very close! While I only listened to the album once..maybe after I play it for a few times I will find myself having his album on repeat. LOL

Westcoast artist, Bino Rideaux, is out with a fresh project that I can guarantee will have you vibing to it all weekend. I enjoy how Bino rides the beat while telling a story that will keep you very attentive wanting to expect more from him especially during a time when the feeling of going outside sounds so tempting but risky all together. This dope project has features including: Mozzy and Fredo Bang.

Skooly is an artist whose music I will always anticipate! He always delivers regardless if he’s giving you a hard flow or preaching about some real shit. This new project not only has a dope ass cover giving us an Adams Family feel to it. What’s funny is, for Skooly to be an artist from Atlanta…he does not sound like the majority of artists who came from there. Tay Keith, Lil Baby, and 2 Chainz will have you bopping your head to this on repeat!!

There’s an artist that I totally feel like gets better and better every time I hear a new project from him, and that’s Key Glock! Not only does his music be bunkin but he has a flow that makes him stand out from any other Memphis artist. It’s cool that Young Dolph not only cosigns him they also did an album together too as well, but Key Glock can honestly hold his own. I bet that his name will still be ringing bells in the next couple of years!

This is my first time listening to artist Kota The Friend and I am pleasantly surprised!! He’s an artist who has a dope lyrical flow rhyming on top of dope beats as well!! I believe Kota is an artist who will be around for awhile especially if he stays this fly!

Rihanna says she Trans Men & Women shouldn’t be used as marketing tools

Rihanna: “I don’t think it’s fair that a trans woman, or man, be used as a convenient marketing tool”

“Too often I see companies doing this to trans and black women alike,” the singer wrote in response to a fan.

Rihanna‘s Fenty Beauty has been praised for its inclusivity, offering a wide variety of shades not usually found in makeup. When a fan suggested she use trans models to promote the next Fenty Beauty campaign, the pop star shared a thoughtful response.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with many gifted trans women over the years,” she wrote, “but I don’t go around doing trans castings! Just like I don’t do straight non trans women castings. I respect all women. Whether they’re trans or not is none of my business.”

She also criticized fashion and beauty brands for exploiting trans people in their campaigns. “I don’t think it’s fair that a trans woman, or man, be used as a convenient marketing tool,” she wrote. “Too often I see companies doing this to trans and black women alike. There’s always just that one spot in the campaign for the token ‘we look mad diverse’ girl/guy! It’s sad!”
