With the recent airing of the third season of HBO's "Insecure", which spotlighted Ravyn Lenae's single "Sticky", I figured now would be the best time to re-post the official visual for the record. Ravyn Lenae is and has been one of my favorite soul singers on the underground scene. Not only is she a talented vocalist, but a superb writer.
This weeks underground features are as followed:
"So Glad I Found You" is the first visual manifestation of, Hip-Hop artist, JayPluss' upcoming project, #3blacc. The visual is the perfect representation of the single's idea of realism or unplanned life. When life does not go as planned, it often feels like there is a shadow over us, hence the director's genius use of shadows.
Though Beige Banks "Big Spender" was release a year ago, the song has aged well and is still relevant to current pop culture with sex work on the rise. I do not advocate for sex work, but to each her own and I like this song-- you know, if we're being honest.
Hip-Hop Jah-Monte collaborated with sound engineer, XYN, to produce this grimy vibe about making money moves by way of the black market.
"Vegas Girl" is contemporary disco-pop jam; on it Jamie Blake praises and courts a girl he feels lucky to have met in the Sin City.
"Lonely" is one of the many odes to self love on rising star's, Jamila Woods, album HEAVN (August 2017). On the album the soul singer celebrates brown people and spirituality while refusing to adhere to one sound.
