OMG. I can imagine the reaction of the Audience yesterday at Drake‘s OVO Festival at Molson Amphitheatre when Surprise Guests came out on stage! The now-Duo performed a few of their biggest Hits including No Scrubs and Waterfalls, which recently saw a resurgence in that it is prominently featured in the Trailer for upcoming Comedy, We’re The Millers.
On the verge of a Comeback, TLC recently released their new Single Crooked Smile, a Collaboration with Rapper J Cole, the latter who along with Kanye West, Ma$e, Lil Mama, Miguel, Lil Wayne and Diddy also were featured at the Festival yesterday. Although their performance appeared mimed, it still is amazing seeing the Duo on-stage once again.
I know I freak-out every time Mariah Carey releases a new Track, even if it isn’t that great, but really this time it’s really legit solid! The Diva teams with Alternative-R&B Sensation Miguel on #Beautiful, a Summer-inspired Ballad which has a bit of a rhythmic edge. It feels classic, yet at the same time its production and performances make it feel unmistakably current.
The Video, directed by Joseph Kahn (yes, the Man who directed Britney Spears’Toxic), helms and uses his keen sense of light to make a euphoric experience. If Nick Cannon doesn’t mind this chemistry, then I guess we don’t either!
Certain to be one of the Hits of Summer 2013 and just what Carey that much-needed 19th #1!
The face of R&B is changing completely and at the forefront of the Movement of Singing/Songwriting Sensation Miguel. Don’t call him an instant success though as the 27-year-old has long been at his Craft and after a false start back in 2010 under Jive Records, he now is tasting sweet success with current label RCA Records (Sony Music). Earlier this year Miguel‘s Adorn was awarded Best R&B Song at The GRAMMYs, also receiving a nomination in the prestigious Song of the Year Category.
After arriving in Toronto yesterday, the Crooner whose Music can best be described as Rock/Electronica-infused R&B, is spending a day to promote his latest Disc, Kaleidoscope Dream. He might even have had some fun with the Rabbit-Dog Sculptures outside of Metro Hall! Among his appearances today were an early morning visit to CityTV’s Breakfast Television arriving before 7:00 AM for Soundcheck, where Staff including Host Dina Pugliese were mesmerized by his smoldering, smooth Vocals and limitless upper-Range. Miguel performed a two-song Acoustic Set which included Adorn and The Thrill interspersed throughout the Show, which be watched right here.
Following his Appearance, Miguel was extremely gracious, generously stopping for Photos and Autographs with Fans in heavy winds, with his Handler assisting kindly.
