TWO FUNKY DIVAS: DREEZY & ADELE

TWO FUNKY DIVAS: DREEZY & ADELE

Although Adele is primarily noted for her voice, it’s all about the lyrics and music, that make a song. As popular as she is today, my love for her has grown, since she initially took the world stage.  Dreezy has taken the world of music by storm and has been hailed as the “Princess of Chicago Rap.”  Her album “No Hard Feelings” dropped this past summer, and she’s also featured on Aluna George’s track “Mean What I Mean,” from his latest, “I Remember.”

Jazmine Sullivan FUNKS It Up with Vanity 6

Jazmine Sullivan FUNKS It Up with Vanity 6

 
Jazmine Sullivan’s new CD “Love Me Back” is one of the best R&B offerings in a long while. The project incorporates hip-hop, jazz and funk all cooked up in an R&B stew that has a fresh sound, while infusing a recognizable retro groove. Better than her debut CD “Fearless,” it was released too late for Grammy consideration this year. However, the first single “Holding You Down (Going In Circles)” from the album, is up for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
