A few weeks ago DJ Khaled released the track #TotheMax which set Social Media on fire, there were a few artists in Miami who claimed to the be the originators of the style of music that was sampled on the track. We decided to get the facts!
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:19

With the release of her latest album, the properly titled Woman, Jill Scott has taken her show on the road with a 25-city tour. She made her way to Atlanta’s Chastain Park on Aug. 2.
But Scott also took a moment to address her detractors on “Hate On Me.” Following the song, she spoke about haters and said, “You’re so busy being mad that you’re not counting your own blessings.”
Check it out!
Her latest single, “Fool’s Gold,” proves how love can make us all look foolish at times. And “Slowly Surely” was Scott’s way of leaving a bad situation and facing the fear that comes from uncertainty.
Overall, Scott’s show allowed her to prove why she continues to be one of the top soul artists 15 years after her debut. She knows that love is a constant journey and her fans are more than willing to join her for the ride.
I was browsing on IG a few days ago when I saw a post that DJ Khaled put up… It was a snippet of LunchMoney Lewis‘ video “Bills”. I immediately felt a sense of pride, most of the comments were pretty positive and most people seemed to like the song. My pride comes from the fact that I have known LunchMoney since he was in the group Bottom Of the Map. I’ve interviewed him a few times (check ChunkyChickz Youtube channel for clips) and I’ve had the pleasure of watching him grow in an industry that wouldn’t typically feature this kind of artist.
Seeing that I have been out of the loop for sometime now. I was also pleasantly surprised when I found out that Lunch also co wrote and performed the vocals for a track on Nicki Minaj’s album The Pink Print. “Trini Dem Girls” is actually one of my favorite songs on the album. Don’t ask me how or why I didn’t realize that it was Lunch accompanying her on the track… LOL This is an artist who has been grinding in Miami for a while now, and it looks like his time is now. These days Lunch can be found living it up in Los Angeles writing and building up his songwriting credits making moves just like he did when he was here in Miami. Gotta say again that I’m proud of him, but I’m not surprised at his success seeing that he is the son of Inner Circle’s bassist and Co Founder of Circle House Studios here in Miami Ian Lewis.
Jazmine Sullivan’s newest studio effort Reality Show, debuted at Number 1 on the R&B Albums chart. According to Nielsen Music, Sullivan’s Reality Show sold 29,000 copies in its first week. The album is currently Number 12 on the Billboard 200 charts. Jazmine was recently interviewed by Billboard Magazine and she had this to say about the heartbreak that inspired her new album.
“The most personal song is called Forever. I’m basically crying on that song. It’s a ballad, and that’s classic Jazmine.” The singer added, “It’s a letting go song which is why it’s so personal. I feel like I came to a point in my relationship where I needed to let go and move on. I just had to do it.”
Missy Elliott joined Sullivan again on her second effort, Love Me Back in 2009. In order to properly promote the album, Sullivan went on the road with Mary J. Blige for the Music Saved My Life tour. The album didn’t achieve the commercial success that Fearless managed to accomplish, but Love Me Back spent a respective six weeks on the Billboard 200. No worries, Jasmine Sullivan knows how get and keep a few coins as she has written songs for a number of mainstream artists including “Say I” (Christina Milian), “Everything to Me” (Monica), “I’m His Only Woman” (Jennifer Hudson), “Still Love You” (Tamia), and “I Want You” (Mary J. Blige).
