Sammie Is Helping Us “Get Right” With Sneak Peeks of New Music!

R&B artist Sammie has managed to continue sweeping us off of our feet with sneak peeks of new music from an upcoming album.  Last year Sammie received an average of 1.4 million streams per month on Spotify, and his album “Coming of Age” made the top 20 on the R&B charts for iTunes. This year it appears that fans are in for an even greater treat from the savior of R&B himself!

Recently he released snippets for one of his singles via Instagram titled, “Get Right” and honey I’m here to tell you that I am all for this single! Sometimes we do our best to attempt to allow the ones we love to gain that space needed to get it together. Getting it right means leaving the old things behind, so that you can move forward to better things, because a person who loves you, does not deserve to pay for another person’s mistakes. Let’s also be mindful that a person can only handle so much before calling it quits. The single captured the attention of R&B singer, Keyshia Cole and led her to expressing some pointers that he should add to the track. Hopefully fans could look forward to maybe a possible duo on this very song from Keyshia Cole and Sammie. Now that would be epic right? Come through for the fans you two!

I truly believe we all have discovered the guilty actions of allowing the ones we love to suffer because we have not healed from those past hurts. But what makes a relationship strong for any woman is having a man that is willing to fight to love a broken woman. Let’s admit, we all have been hurt by some people we never thought would let us down. I mean seriously how many men out there are actually interested in loving a painting that is not fully complete? We all want someone that is ideally perfect in our eyes but the truth is that none of us are without flaws. So to find someone who is willing to nurture those wounds means a lot. Just the right amount of love and attention can make any flower bloom, so a man who is down to help that Queen “get right” is truly a keeper.

What I adore about this single and so many others to date by him is that he brings to the surface our thoughts and feelings through his music. I’m sure we all remember that music from back in the day that left you feeling like the artist had been sitting in your room when that heart break happened.

Check out what he shared recently on his Instagram from the upcoming single,  “Get Right” below.

After listening to those verses, it’s definitely safe to say that he has another winning album on the way for 2018.  And no the Queens are not just in love with the handsome lion because of his persuasive ability to steal our attention during the day, but we truly recognize talent and Sammie has managed to deliver us the music we first fell in love with him for consistently throughout the years.  Like wine, he simply just gets better over the years and I’m here for every moment!

Normani Kordei is a singer originally from Atlanta, Georgia who is a member of the girl group, Fifth Harmony.

Her sweet and humble personality adds to why she has remained such a successful performer in recent years. Kordei has been singing and dancing since the age of four and although she has had an early start in the field of music, she doesn’t allow that to steal away from her ability to remain humble in the midst of all the excitement and success. Kontrol truly enjoyed discovering more about the life of the young singer and was excited to find out that she will be appearing on the hit TV series, ‘Dancing With the Stars.’

Dancing with the Stars has been an incredible experience. Honestly I feel like I have grown in the last three weeks. I really have the best partner and he has been really encouraging me, and allowing me to see the beauty in me and what I have to offer. Growing up, I didn’t really believe in myself the most, especially since I started out at such a young age. Having people judge you in every little thing you do, even as a teenager and experiencing life for itself can be tough. He’s helping me to realize that it’s okay to be vulnerable, like don’t keep it all to yourself, so I really thank him for that, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of the season with him. The cast has really become a family and learning all of the dances and genres has really been cool.”

The young singer has been very busy working between the show and on Fifth Harmony’s Global tour. “We just wrapped up our Asian tour, it was about a three week run and it was really amazing. We’re really grateful and blessed to be able to travel to these places that we would have never had the opportunity to see if it weren’t for each other. It’s just really great to be able to thank our fans in person because we talk to them a lot over social media. We have a real personal connection with them and we made a bunch of memories!”
Being part of such an amazing group comes with having the knowledge to know what it takes to remain successful. Normani shared with us what she felt has helped in making Fifth Harmony so successful thus far. “I just believe that everything happens for a reason, and I really do give credit to God and all the glory for five girls from different walks of life
coming together. It’s just been a journey and it’s cool to see the ups and downs that we have been through because it’s just part of our story. Whether it be good or bad, it just makes up all the parts that Fifth Harmony is.”

Little Richard Hints He’s No Longer Gay: Says You’ve got to live the way God wants you to live.

     Little Richard Hints He’s No Longer Gay

At age 84, Little Richard is opening up about his love for God and how despite people being gay or bi-sexual, the Lord still loves them. In the past, the rock ‘n’ roll legend described himself as ‘gay’, but now says he’s dedicating his final years to living holy “like Jesus”.  He also insisted men should live as men, and women should live as women, the way God intended.

“Give everything you’ve got to Jesus and you’ll feel oh, so much better.”

He continues,

“You know it’s just like everybody is turning one way or the other. This man here, when I first came into show business, they wanted you to look like everybody but yourself. And anybody come in show business, they’re gonna say you’re gay. Are you straight? Are you a homosexual something? They’re gonna say it. But the God, Jesus, made men, men, he made women, women, you know. And you’ve got to live the way God wants you to live. “

Richard, who no longer wears wig and make-up, also said that he believes if a person’s sexual orientation wasn’t in line with God’s design, that God is able to fix it.

“Regardless of whatever you are He loves you. I don’t care what you are. He loves you and He can save you, and He will save you and He can help you. He will help you. All you’ve got to do is say, ‘Lord, take me as I am. I’m a sinner.’ But we all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The only holy, righteous person is Jesus and He wants us to be just like Him because in order to go to Heaven, we’ve got to look like Him,” Richard said. “I don’t want to sing Rock and Roll no more. … I want to be holy like Jesus.”

The Evolution of Sammie With New Album “Coming Of Age” Is Sensual!

“I’ve learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom.”- Soledad O’Brien.

Imagine a journey of pain, struggle, fear, humility and faith. Sammie’s new album takes us down a sensual path of his life through a combination of heartfelt vocal’s and pulsating escapades. To say that he is making a return to R&B is an understatement. Sammie has been creating and releasing music under his own label, Star Camp Music as an independent artist, for a while now.

Despite some shaky moments in his career, Sammie has remained solid in an industry that can either make you or break you as an artist.  With every journey comes the strongest tests of faith, and “Coming of Age” depicts the life of a young boy evolving into a man through love and life experiences.

Through his music on the new album, we evolve with him. In 2006 when Sammie returned to the scene with his single, “Come With Me”, the world was drawn back towards the Sammie we had missed and grew to love. Now in 2017, we are not only “coming with him” but coming into age with him.

His growth and journey through life and music is phenomenal!

The first track on the album titled, “COA” showcases the most emotional but heartfelt display of love and change. Sammie sings, “What if I told you I changed…would you want me back?”.  The song reaches out into your soul to explain the coming of growth and a plea to allow another opportunity.

How many ladies would open your heart back up to a man who displays growth and change not only in words but through actions? Listening to this song is a reflection of just how powerful Sammie is with his vocals and creativity! He has the gift to transition words into a visual image within your mind, and that within itself is an art form that vocalists strive to obtain.

 

                                        The entire album is amazing!

Evolution is beautiful when you see an artist survive some of the toughest parts of his career. Yet to know the struggle is to love the growth, and we definitely see growth in him. The fans, to include myself who kept following are beyond excited for him with the much deserved recognition for his music this year. For those who know, back in 2009 Sammie went through a rough period with previous management and more, so to be at this height in his music career as an independent artist is nothing short of a blessing.

My favorite track among many on the album is, “Be Alone” and even though I’m sure women all over find it hard to believe Sammie could be alone, the track speaks volumes. A very attractive, charming man in the entertainment industry who can sing like Sammie with no auto-tune is captivating. Yet it comes with a lot of stress and curiosity as to whether the ladies are into you or just into your fame. So despite being able to easily get girls, he expresses that he’s tired of the same stuff, and the fear of possibly being alone because of it all. With growth comes the knowledge that a man needs more than just pretty women parading after him, but also a stable and loyal woman who can wither the storm with him. A woman who understands his status and yet seeks to add and not take from his light.

While Sammie often states that he is not trying to be the “Prince of R&B” but merely a savior to the love for R&B music that has faded over the years, many who are fans are just happy that he remained himself through everything that was meant to break him.

Sometimes while trying to save others…we save ourselves and that’s the start of something amazing.

In the midst of creating music, Sammie is not only bringing us on his life journey vocally but visually as well. A documentary of his story is set to release soon.

 

So if you haven’t got your copy of his new album then my question to you is, What are you waiting for?

You can get the copy of the album, “Coming Of Age” now on Google Play Music, iTunes, Tidal, and Spotify!
