Throwback Jam of the Week: "Satisfaction"-Eve

It's Throwback Thursday, and we're back with another great hit from back in the day!

As the former first lady of Ruff Ryders Entertainment, Eve definitely brought some hits in the late '90s and '00s, and "Satisfaction" was one of them for me. It's a banger, but also still really motivating to reach higher heights in my own career!

Throwback Jam of the Week: "8 Days of Christmas"-Destiny's Child

It's Throwback Thursday, and we're back with another jam from back in the day!

Since Christmas is Sunday, this one is only right. This week's throwback jam is one of my favorite holiday songs from my favorite group, Destiny's Child! "8 Days of Christmas" was fun and perfect for the holidays, and the video was really cute. I literally played it all the time, and still do. Matter of fact, after my parents finally let me have a CD player of my own, DC's album, titled 8 Days of Christmas, was my first official CD as a kid, and I played that thing ALL year round.

I learned that I have to try my best to stay in these moments, because some of these things that happen to me are once in a lifetime experiences and I’ll never get to do it again.”

Good morning everyone! Hope you all had a great and productive weekend. Here's some #MondayMotivation to start your week off strong!

I can only speak for myself regarding this quote, but following my passion of writing and entertainment has opened several opportunities where indeed there were only walls. When I first started, I had no experience and was just starting my degree, but I knew at a young age what I ultimately wanted to do. So I followed it by starting this site, which led to more and more doors opening. 

At the end of the day, when you go after your bliss, your true purpose in life wholeheartedly, the doors will undoubtedly open. You just have to keep going!

Throwback Jam of the Week: "Come On Over (All I Want Is You)"-Christina Aguilera

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

In the late 90s and early 2000s, the pop world was really booming. Christina Aguilera was undoubtedly a part of that, knocking us out with her powerful and completely unexpected voice! Rising in 1999 as a solo singer with her debut self-titled album, she gave us that blue eyed soul, and still does (waiting on a new album, girl!).

One of the hits from that album was definitely "Come On Over." I remember being a kid and just completely blown away by her vocals when I heard this track. It was really fun to dance to, and I couldn't help but TRY to hit her incredible runs.

Good morning y'all...here's some #MondayMotivation to get your work week started off right!

A lot of us have A LOT going on, and, I don't know about you, but there are plenty of days where I want to do absolutely NOTHING. There are plenty of things that I have to do behind the scenes outside of just writing to push my career and life forward that I highkey can't stand. However, you do what you have to do to get to where you want to be.

That's why this quote from the late Muhammad Ali stood out to me. Even the greatest was annoyed by the work that he had to put in to be the greatest. However, he refused to stop, knowing that it was key to attaining the life and future he wanted for himself. That's where I'm at now. What about you?

The artist added, "This song, that is rock & roll reincarnated, that celebrates your mother, my mother, your sister, and my sister is just my way to stand up for the woman next to me and all those unseen. We need each other and the world really needs us right now.”

Throwback Jam of the Week: "1, 2 Step"- Ciara feat. Missy Elliott

It's Throwback Thursday, and we're going back in time again with another throwback jam of the week! 

This week's throwback is one of my favorites from Ciara! When she first hit the scene back in 2004 with her smash hit, "Goodies," everyone was so impressed with her dance skills and flair. And we all almost broke our backs trying to do her version of the Matrix (I was on it when I was younger....but now? HA!). Another hit was "1,2 Step" featuring Missy Elliott, with Ciara's signature 1, 2 Step, which was simple but so much fun!  

I had forgot just how much I used to love this song. My Zumba instructor used this song recently for one of our dances in class, and I was going IN!  And, 12 years later, Ciara's still killing it on stage, especially on the dance tip. She's more chill right now since she's pregnant with her baby with husband Russell Wilson, but I'm sure she's getting right back to it afterwards!

Watch "1, 2 Step" below!

The 2017 Grammy Nominations Are In!

The Grammys

The 59th annual Grammy Awards are soon approaching, and the nominees have officially been announced!

With Adele and Beyonce leading the pack (duh), and so many other great projects nominated, the competition is definitely going to be tight! My biggest hope this year is that Solange wins Best R&B Performance for "Cranes In The Sky" because it (and A Seat at the Table) was outstanding! I know that Bey will win something and Adele will too, but Solange definitely deserves a Grammy for her album.

See who was nominated for what awards below!
