What made me fall in love with the song was actually the video. Staged at the scene of the Salem witch trails, Jessie is burned at the stake for seemingly loving who she wanted to love. The juxtaposition between the verses being a bit flirty and sexual are really uplifted by the video and make you understand that this song can apply to so much more than just someone’s sexual preferences. I really love what Jessie did with this one and respect her for the artistic integrity she put forth.

Hangin’ & Mackin’ (Vol. 1) – by @RagzDaArtist
I’m incredibly impressed with Ragz & his EP. He’s the main inspiration for a lot of the people back home, myself included. He’s put me onto engineers and has done an amazing job networking. I love the way his voice has evolved over time — I have to admit I find courage in his strength to rhyme & sing with such ease & talent. Additionally, his promo game has truly stepped up on this project.

Open Mic Night with @Sound_Series and @Dinner_Land
Written by President ELLA
It’s been a while since I touched the mic, but The Sound Series gave me exactly what I needed. This Brooklyn open mic is both organized and dope. As advertised, sign ups are from 6-7 and go smoothly because you’re asked to show up with a hard drive & you only get 1 song.
“Ella Mai” by @EllaMai
Written by President ELLA
I’ve been waiting for a full (new) project from Ms. Ella Mai. Apparently, she’s been working on this self-titled album and compiling her work just for people like me 🙂 The 16 song project is certainly worth the listen; even the mediocre song are really good because her voice is simply that serene.
“Level Up” by @Ciara
Written by PresidentELLA
This has to be my favorite jam of the moment. No only is the tempo typical get-your-ass-up Ciara, the lyrics are super uplifting. I def tune into Ciara when I’m trying to dance my pain away. Listen to the song & watch the video below, it’s certain to get your vibes up 🙂
