[WATCH] Beyonce - Coachella

Post by: Montrez Rambo

Life is hectic at the moment- currently on patrol getting qualifications. But I had to stop to tune into Beyonce's Coachella performance.

The Queen brought culture to the table with the Central State University band. Majorettes were out there bucking, the Clark Sisters were paid homage, and Destiny's Child reunited. But that wasn't all. The almost two-hour set was also a family affair with Solange (who took part in some sisterly dancing) and hubby Jay-z joining the Diva on stage.

Beyonce was throwing an eight count like she was a majorette herself!

[Vocal Profile] Camila Cabello

Camila Cabello

Vocal Type: Light Lyric Soprano
Vocal Range: 3 octaves and 1 note and semitone C3- Eb6
Vocal Pluses: Camila Cabello's biggest strength lies in the intrinsic character of the voice. From the lows to the top, it retains a nasal, youthful and girlish quality. With this placement, she is able to transfer inflections and tics that are present in her speaking voice, allowing for her to stand out and be identifiable whether in a harmony (Good To Go) or over a heavy production (Work). The voice is agile and capable of melisma (more so at the top of the range than anywhere else) [Sledgehammer (live)].

[Review] Janelle Monae Comes Out... With Two New BOPS!!!!

Post by: Montrez Rambo

I wanna start this off by stating that I know there hasn't been a lot of... 'diversity' with the past few posts. Things will change.

Now Janelle Monae, you have outdone yourself! Two new singles- Make Me Feel and Django Jane- and both are bops! Wonderful lyrics, good vocals/flow and pretty interesting productions. However, what I love most though is the visuals she gave in each. They were wildly different from previous visuals and I'm here for it!

[DISCUSSION] Is Spice Innovative?

Post by: Montrez Rambo

This Article may contain a bit of... raunch. But I want to discuss a topic that has been kind of looming in my mind.

Spice is sitting atop the Dancehall world. Many as of lately have been revering her as the queen of Dancehall and she literally dominates the female space of the genre.

About a month ago, she released a single called 'Duffle Bag'. The song was completely different from her norm, offering a trap beat instead of a dancehall one as well as a different style of flow on top of accent in some parts.

[DISCUSSION] Is Tinashe the next Ciara?

Post by: Montrez Rambo

No shade tonight... Just real bitter tea...

Tinashe has honestly become my favourite R&B/pop/ what ever you wanna call it last year, but why is she not poppin' like she could be?

I hear her all over the radio. She has one of the most recognizable and unique voices I've heard in a while and she gives one thing I love... AESTHETIC!!!

[OPEN THREAD] Happy New Years Ya'll!!!

2017 was a very, very strange year... I ended up not getting a single personal goal accomplished and just being along for the ride. On that same note, it was one hell of a ride that has introduced me to good people, good food and a world of different cultures.

So how will 2018 be different? It won't... I probably still won't even get ten percent of my personal goals accomplished. I probably will become more of a alcoholic. And I probably will continue this dark and abusive love-hate relationship with food... It's totally worth it.

I will state this much though: Expect a few album reviews this year, more vocal profiles, more information packed articles and more open forum posts!

As always, the rules for the open forum:

  • Try not to get too perverted- this site needs to basically be "safe for work". 
  • If somebody starts a rather controversial subject, try keeping it civil when dealing with it. If things get out of hand please flag the conversation. 
  • It would be nice if it stuck to music, but it's not a requirement! Pop culture is extremely relevant to this blog so bring it!. 
  • No nasty comments aimed at other users.
