Okay. So no matter how you feel about 50 Shades of Grey as a book or a movie, you can’t deny that the soundtrack is killer. It features some truly soulful R&B hits and romantic classicss that are bound to get stuck in your head and leave you wanting more. From ‘Earned It’ by The Weeknd, to songs from greats like Annie Lennox with ‘I put a spell on you’ and Frank Sinatra with ‘Witchcraft,’ to a slowed down version of ‘Crazy in Love’ by Beyonce. This soundtrack is almost unbelievable it’s so good, featuring songs from so many promient artists in music, past and present. If you haven’t yet, check out the album, it’s available on iTunes, Spotify and in disc form. If you’re feeling sensual, need a playlist for Valentine’s Day or just wanna listen to some great music, give the 50 Shades soundtrack a listen. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Hey guys. Long time no talk. Coming back to you all after being abroad a little bit early to rave about the new Coldplay music video; it’s just that awesome. This new video, for ‘Ink’ off Coldplay’s most recent album Ghost Stories, takes it’s viewers on an interactive journey following a man’s dream for love and happiness. About every ten seconds or so the
viewer, player is given a choice or a path that will lead our main character toward a new horizon and will significantly change his fate and his chances at love. This incredible video, designed by Blind, offers about 300 different music videos in one with it’s many options for it’s character to fulfill. This type of video raises the bar in the world of music videos and gives the listeners so much more involvement in the music they love so much. It’s very engaging and adds an awesome new level to the experience of listening to good music. Innovations like these allow artists to bring their followers just a little bit deeper into their crazy worlds, and I am a fan.

Waka Flocka Flame & Riff Raff
Last Tuesday, Waka Flocka Flame and Riff Raff joined together to give one heck of a show for Baltimore. The concert was at the Baltimore Soundstage which was chock full of diverse fans and raging front rowers’. Coming into the show I was immensely skeptical of the show due the somewhat poor lyrical quality of the two artists. That being said, I could have never been more wrong in my life. (more…)
