Billboard songwriter / producer James Worthy continues to deliver us that type of music that takes us back to the sounds of an old school era, of what I like to call “real music” in his latest single. In the midst of recently working behind the production of other artist such as J. Young, Jaden Smith and more, he has taken some time out to focus on his solo career.

His new single, “Blu Sunsets” dropped recently on April 19 and has since then been creating a lot of buzz! The R&B masterpiece creates that nostalgic vibe, while making you want to pack up the bags and hit the road with the roof down for a solo escape.  Produced by Frisktrackz, the song absolutely delivers nothing but the sounds of love and I’m looking forward to more from this musical genius.

Check out the new single below and be sure to look forward to more in the works from James Worthy this year!

Phillip Hudson is a YouTube phenomenon! He is well known for his collaborative channel with his brother Emmanuel Hudson. Emmanuel and Phillip Hudson were both born in Mississippi but later their family moved to Atlanta. As kids, their natural ability to entertain was prevalent. While in school, they easily won over their classmates with their dancing, comedy, and rapping. In January 2012, the duo received their big break when they shared their video for their catchy and hilarious song, “Ratchet Girl Anthem,” on YouTube, which hit over 13 million views! The comedy rap duo even appeared on Season 9 of America’s Got Talent. 

While his brother Emmanuel has been busy with series such as Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘N Out, he has also been busy making television appearances and still showcasing his talent with music.

Grammy Nominated Billboard Songwriter/Producer James Worthy Talks Break Out Hip Hop Group Collaboration, “Kings X2”!

This Exclusive Interview was with our brand founder, Tanisha Davis and was featured in Sheen Magazine!

Billboard Songwriter/Producer James A. Worthy is one of the hardest working producers in the industry. Accompanying his musical flexibility, James has credits with various artists including Grammy Nominated Musicians & Award Winners such as: Dr. Dre, B Angie B, Arrested Development, Men At Large, T-Pain, Future, Bobby Valentino, and many more.  James has been working hard this year from making appearances in movies like “Love By Chance,” and on hit reality shows, all while helping to produce sensational music for other artists.

Now he is taking things to even higher levels by teaming up with another artist, International Nova.

The New Rap & R&B Group called “Kings X2” has just recently hit the #10 spot on the Billboard Hot Singles Chart with their debut single “Wine For Me.” The song is quickly climbing into the radio markets and is projected to hit the #1 spot this month. These two talented artists coming together has definitely been creating a lot of buzz! The group started following the production of new music by International Nova’s remake of Big Pun’s, “Don’t Want To Be A Player.” Worthy performed on the single and from there the two continued to make their own records, shortly after forming the group, known as “King X2”.

What these two are doing is quite phenomenal with their combination of Hip-Hop and R&B. The Hip-Hop industry has not really seen many successful male duos team up since legendary rap duos like OutKast, Ying Yang Twins, Method Man & Redman, and more to name a few since the early 2000s.

When asked what makes the group stand out in the Hip Hop industry today? Worthy replied, “There are very few duos in Hip Hop today, but what makes us stand out is because we incorporate all genres within melody and arrangements. On top of me being a producer, I know what sounds right.”

James Worthy recently opened up yesterday during a radio interview with Starrdom100 Blog Radio Show, about other projects to expect from him this year and more with the new group collaboration. Be sure to check out the interview on Blog Talk Radio TODAY!

Be on the lookout for more hot music from the group this year and their album release which will be announced soon.

Malina Moye sits down in an interview with Kontrol Magazine.

Malina Moye is Phenomenal & A Face to know in Rock & Roll!

Malina Moye embraces her unique brand, bringing charisma, fire, and emotion to music unlike any artist in the world today. As a savvy businesswoman, she has taken her childhood dream and turned it into an empire. She is what I consider to be positively explosive, and spiritually grounded. That is simply just a vast hint to explaining the multi-talented, left handed guitarist, singer, songwriter, and luminary star, Malina Moye. 

When discussing who she felt inspired by in the industry of pop culture, she stated that that there were  so many influences, and that seeing Tina Turner, Prince, Michael Jackson, James Brown, and even looking at You Tube videos helped to inspire and motivate her as a musician. She mentioned that just being able to see the type of energy and power that these people would bring to music was simply unbelievable!

After releasing her single “Girlfriend” and cross-marketing it with her calendar “Spend 12 Months With Malina Moye: Hot Fun in California Sun,” she caught the attention of the crowds, who considered Malina to be almost a resemblance of Madonna! This helped land her song, “Girlfriend”, on the R&B Hip-Hop Sales Billboard listing at number 43 for one week. Guitar World Magazine even named Moye as one of the ten female guitarists in the world to know!

Her down to earth but passionate spirit for reaching the world with her music has no limits. Not only is she for creating an amazing tune, but also for meeting the needs of those who share in the experience of dreams larger than life.

Malina’s humanitarian efforts include serving as co-founder of DriveHope.org a non-profit organization that’s dedicated to helping individuals elevate themselves and their communities. Drive Hope’s mission is to step in at the right moment and help those who may come from less-fortunate circumstances to see greater options for their lives. Whether it’s bringing inspiring role models to speak to classrooms and social organizations with Drive Hope’s ‘Friends Lift Friends’ program, or in the form of funding education programs and scholarships for students who are working toward a desired field, Drive Hope’s mission is to open minds and fuel success.

Just last year the Drive Hope Youth Choir performed with Stevie Wonder at Stevie Wonder’s 21st annual House Full of Toys event on Dec 9, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

“When someone is in their element, they shine bright and inspire others without even trying. By helping one person achieve their dream, their family and friends are affected positively too. And this is a beautiful thing!”  — Malina Moye

Outside of her music, Moye recently has joined the ensemble cast of indie film “The Samuel Project,” shooting this month in San Diego. She will play a supporting role opposite Emmy and Tony award winner Hal Linden-best known for portraying the title role in the long running series “Barney Miller,” and star of Disney’s “Pair of Kings,” Ryan Ochoa.

Malina Moye is truly such an inspiration as a recording artist and humanitarian. She has carved out her own lane among the new genre of Rock artists with her own fabulous blend of Funk and Rock. With her popping red lipstick and fly fashion, she lights up the stage with her guitar! She is definitely bringing recognition for being a phenomenal Black woman in a genre of music that was once thought to have limits to certain cultures!

Meet Artist Noelle Goodson!

When you think of Art, think of Noelle Goodson.

 

                         Noelle Goodson is definitely a name you should get to know!

Born in December of 1984 in Birmingham, Alabama. She moved to Mobile, Al with her family when she was only seven years old. She then went on to study Communication and Advertising Art at Alabama A&M University in Normal, Alabama. After two years at A&M, she entered the Disney College Program and went to work at Walt Disney world for a few years. Her journey did not end there as she later returned to A&M to pursue a degree in Graphic Design. Noelle Goodson first began drawing when she was about five years old after her father was killed. It was at that devastating moment in her life that she allowed Art to become her outlet. From that point on she discovered that she had a natural born talent for Art.

During her primary education years, she taught herself to perfect her gift of drawing.

“I spend most of my time graphic designing and compiling design concepts. I enjoy painting on large scales such as large canvases and murals. Much of my art is Afro Centric and ethnic themed and promotes coexisting and conscience awareness. I am a traditional artist and I am moved by the process, time and ability that it takes to produce a masterpiece. With every pencil mark and each brush stroke I am able to express myself and make a living doing what I love.”

One of Goodson’s most favorited pieces of art happens to be “Girl Before Mirror” by Pablo Picasso.

One doesn’t have to look far to understand her exquisite taste for Art. Her Art has gained her much recognition from local natives of Mobile, Al. It is that very taste that received her recognition by the Soulful Diva Eryka Badu. Goodson was given the opportunity to come backstage with the artist and showcase a painting she had masterfully created. 

Behind every painted blend of colors, Goodson seeks to tell a story to her fans.One of my most faved recent pieces by her happens to be historical.The painting which is featured at Kazoola Lounge located in Mobile, Al is of Cudjoe Kazoola Lewis (c. 1840 – 1935), or Cudjo Lewis. He was the last known survivor of the Atlantic slave trade between Africa and the United States. Together with 115 other captives, he was brought illegally to the United States on board the ship Clotilde in 1860.

“A painter is someone who never runs out of color. The colors are her silent notes, and when she pours them on her canvas, she depicts her silence, her thoughts and herself- raw and sour. She is something unique like a hurricane- a colorful one. She can cause devastation by her wild strokes and she is as much capable to create a sanctuary by softer strokes.She can cause rain like tears to fall through the eyes or she can simply cause chaos.

She is limitless, a creation capable of creating. She watches and notices everything. She feels so much at sometimes, she’s on the verge of spilling them. Then she watches over the blank canvas on her easel accompanied by color containers and brushes. Her hands twitch to reach out to them for the sake of art. Then, after all dilemma, She decides to reach out and bleed herself down on that canvas and fill up herself with colors. And when I imagine it, there’s one line which flashes every time on my mind, “A thing of beauty lasts forever.”

From the poem ‘Endemyon’ written by John Keats.

Noelle Goodson is the face behind art, she is one to be remembered and her legacy is to be painted among the hearts of history when we think of color, swirls, and natural creativity upon a blank canvas!
