Throwback Thursday: Outkast feat. Killer Mike – “The Whole World”

The Coachella crowd may not have been enthused about Outkast’s reunion, but who cares? The die-hard fans like me were more than pleased to stream the performance and hold mini concerts in our living rooms. (Everyone did that, right?).

Andre, Big Boi and Killer Mike weren’t able to perform “The Whole World,” so here it is, folks.

Be sure to check out Outkast if they come to a festival near you.

Throwback Thursday: Amerie – “Why Don’t We Fall In Love”

It’s hot. I know I was begging for warm weather last week, but I live in the South and when it warms up down here… It WARMS up.

It already feels like summer, so I figured I celebrate with huge sunglasses and a song that sounds like sunshine. Can’t you just picture yourself in a monokini as Amerie sings this?

Throwback Thursday: Queen Latifah – “U.N.I.T.Y.”

Sometimes I forget how talented Queen Latifah is. She’s a rapper, singer, actress and a great role model. When I was a child, I remember wanting to grow up to be Khadijah James and own a hip hop magazine. (I actually still want to be Khadijah James.)

In honor of the last Thursday of Women’s History Month and the belated birthday of Queen Latifah, I decided that “U.N.I.T.Y.” was worthy of a spin. This is one of the most important hip hop songs ever made and it’s a shame that this message still rings true.

Kudos to the Queen. Happy Women’s History Month!

Crush of the Week: Toro Y Moi

Toro Y Moi has been innovative, talented and… well, cute since he released his debut album Causers of This in 2010, and the creative South Carolina native continues to please fans with his unique brand of electro-pop. His latest album, Anything in Return, hit the world earlier this year and I have been in pure bliss.

Fresh off of his SXSW performance, Toro Y Moi has just released a new video from Anything in Return, and it further proves just how cool he is. C’mon, you know you’re cool when you barely appear in your own video. (Plus his real name is Chadwick. COME ON.)

Check out “Never Matter” below and find out more about Toro Y Moi at his website.

Anything in Return is available for purchase on iTunes.
