The O’Jays – The Last Word
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The O’Jays (Eddie Levert Sr., Walter Williams Sr. and Eric Nolan Grant), take on the Trump administration and social injustice with a message of love on their new album, The Last Word. It’s the group’s final studio album and their first in almost 20 years. The Last Word was produced by the Grammy-nominated producers Steve Greenberg, Sam Hollander, Mike Mangini and R&B legend Betty Wright
“I look at what is going on in the world and not much seems to have changed from when we first started doing this,” said Eddie Levert. “We are still dealing with the same issues. On this album we addressed those issues as well as the intolerance we see coming out of the Trump Administration on a daily basis. We also offer a solution. That solution is to combat hatred with love and acceptance.”
Leven Kali – “Do U Wrong” featuring Syd
Los Angeles based singer/songwriter/producer, Leven Kali, shares the video for his newest single “Do U Wrong” featuring Syd of The Internet. The record was originally released in last January on Leven’s own Palm Studios and Interscope Records.
BlumBros – “LS6”
Philly born & raised brother rap duo, BlumBros, release their autobiographical track “LS6” off of their upcoming debut EP Thank Da Jects, which is entirely produced by MAKJ.
“Nobody from our neighborhood has ever been on a plane really,” they stated. “So, when we recorded this EP, we made history just traveling to LA to record with a hot DJ/producer like MAKJ. We come from two different places but made a crazy project. No matter where you are from, music can bring everybody together and that’s what we want to do.”
