Album Review: Fergie x Double Dutchess

(Released September 22nd, 2017) It’s been over a decade since Fergie blessed the pop world with her first solo album “The Dutchess.” The album spawned undeniable hits like “Fergalicious,” “Glamorous,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “London Bridge,” and my personal favorite “All That I Got.” Needless to say it, almost effortlessly, proved that she could stand [...]

A few weeks ago Chris Brown released another single off of his upcoming ninth studio album - eighth solo album - "Heartbreak On A Full Moon."

Album Review: Logic x Everybody

(Released May 5th, 2017) Prior to the release of Everybody, the only project that I had heard from Logic was his latest mixtape Bobby Tarantino.

Album Review: Bryson Tiller x True To Self

(Released May 26th, 2017) I've been slow to join the Tiller train, so slow that it's still passing by at this very moment, but I decided to give his sophomore LP a listen after finding a few songs on his debut album TrapSoul to be pretty okay; nothing extraordinary but acceptable for what it was.
