It's Throwback Thursday! I wanted to start sharing some of my favorite random throwback jams that I used to love back in the day...so be on the lookout for those on Thursdays!
This song randomly popped in my head this week. Back around 2004, R&B singer Razah released this jam, "Feel So Good," inspired by Teddy Pendergrass' classic hit, "When Somebody Loves You Back." Razah has released a bunch of music since then, but this was the standout track for me! It was smooth and fun to dance to, and he made it his own with the lyrics.

Today, we have hip hop/pop artist Drew Parks! Drew, originally from Detroit, is also a producer and songwriter, and has gotten major love from top networks and magazines like MTV, ESPN’s First Take, Billboard, Respect Magazine and VIBE. He started getting into hip hop around eight or nine years old, and became obsessed. “As a kid, I listened to a lot of Bob Marley, Sergio Mendes, and anything and everything that was on the radio,” Drew said. “I’d spend all day rapping along with songs and memorizing lyrics.”At just 10, Drew recorded his first song, and by 12 or 13 had started making his own beats using some recording software his parents had bought for him. “By 14 I had released a self-produced album, and started making music with kids I went to middle school and eventually high school with,” he said. “I’ve continued doing music ever since.”
