In The Spotlight: R&B Singer Bahja Rodriguez


Another great spotlight to start the week!

Today, we have R&B singer Bahja Rodriguez (formerly of the OMG Girlz)! 


Bahja grew up on the Eastside of Georgia, supported by loving parents and others around her. “When I think about my childhood, nothing was impossible,” the singer said. “No one ever said to me, ‘You can’t do that.’” With that great mentality, Bahja started dabbling in singing at the young age of 5. She did a recording then of New Edition’s smash hit “Mr. Telephone Man,” along with Zonnique Pullins (daughter of singer Tameka “Tiny” Harris and former member of OMG as well). Though she started professionally at 12, she knew that day, at only five, that she wanted to sing forever!

MUSIC VIDEO: "Take Me Down"-Pop Singer/Songwriter Julia Carlucci


New music video this morning from Canadian pop singer/songwriter Julia Carlucci for her debut single "Take Me Down!"


Directed by Merik Williams, the video features Julia performing the soulful track with a full band and background singers underneath a spotlight. Though the track, produced by Cat Lewis and Andrew Kesler, is soulful and upbeat, it tackles "the age-old battle of 'head-versus-heart.'" Julia explained further, "Take Me Down is about falling for someone you know you shouldn't. It's when your head knows better but your heart is too curious to walk away. Although the lyrics are vulnerable, I always imagined the song with a strong sound and upbeat vibe, so the production needed to be just right. It needed to have that throwback feel but still punch like a contemporary pop record and I think we definitely achieved that."

The song is definitely fire, and it was great to watch Julia perform it as well in the video. Watch below!

#MondayMotivation

Today's a holiday for many of y'all, but still, here's some #MondayMotivation to get your week started off right! 


I love this quote. At the end of the day, you can't change the circumstances that come your way, but you can change not only the way you react to them, but how you work through them. Life is all about constant adjustment to obstacles, a lesson I'm glad to have learned early. Don't get so caught up in the bad that comes your way as you work towards your goals. Adjust your attitude about it and your actions, and keep working at your dreams!

Throwback Jam of the Week: "Thnks fr th Mmrs"-Fall Out Boy


It's Throwback Thursday, and we've got another great jam from back in the day!

Today's throwback is a great one from Fall Out Boy! I'm not even the biggest fan of rock music, but I LOVED this song! The video was weird, but I liked the group's energy and performance style. Plus a younger Kim Kardashian was in this, which I didn't even realize back when it first came out! Really, really strange visual with these chimps all throughout, but this was still a great song.

RECAP: "Getting Served"-Being Mary Jane S4, E5

BET


This episode of Being Mary Jane took us back down to the ATL to check in on Niecy and the rest of the Pattersons!


Picking up from last episode, Niecy goes out for a night on the town with her girls, blowing more of her settlement check on a VIP table with plenty of hookah and bottles. They get to talking about Dante, with Niecy foolishly thinking that Dante wants to be a family with her, Isabelle and Treyvion (who isn't even his son), but really he's using her for her money.

In The Spotlight: Podcaster Loren "Lo Skeet" Gross


Happy to bring ya'll another great person to spotlight in 2017!

I recently linked up with a fellow BGSU alum, Loren "Lo Skeet" Gross, to speak about his podcast "Inaudible Raucous", which has currently been going on strong for 43 weeks straight! The podcast involves Lo speaking on a variety of topics including pop culture, health, sports, social justice, financial advice, etc. As a student of the radio art form since he was 13, Lo said he got the idea to do a podcast about three years ago when he started to see a shift in the radio industry. After much procrastination, the podcaster started his up last year in 2016. The idea for the name came after speaking with some friends about oxymorons that catch people's attention. From there, he thought of a "clever way to spin cliche terms like “Sounds from the Underground” or “The Quiet Riot." Lo stated, "I went to a thesaurus and picked those two words: Inaudible and Raucous."
