Kaytranada Ft. JMSN: All We Do

by

Sometimes life has us a little distracted with little things that we forget what is most important or what really matters.

We’ve all been there.

Off of Kaytranada’s recent release, ‘Kaytra Todo’, listen to ‘All We Do’ and try to not relate to it.

Rochelle Jordan: Shotgun

by

This post has been a long time coming. I meant to post it a couple weeks ago after watching the first episode of H∆SHTAG$.

The only thing that prompted me to do it now is I can’t get the hook of ‘Shotgun’ outta my head. Seriously.

This is moody, well-produced and forward-thinking RnB.
