News and culture site TheSTASHED.com recently invited me to take part in their fun roundtable series.
Hosted by the STASHED editor Kazeem Famuyide, I joined fellow media types Jeff and Eric Rosenthal (It’s The Real), Tracy G (“Sway in the Morning” on Shade 45) Jayson Rodriguez (Editorial Director, REVOLT) David Amaya (Complex) and STASHED writer Nate Santos to share our 2015 music predictions for newcomers and legends in the game plus pay tribute to A$AP Yams.
Beyoncé‘s phenomenal self-titled album is the gift that keeps on giving.
Due Monday, November 24th, the Platinum Edition Box Set adds an extra disc of new music plus another DVD of live performances from her recent Mrs. Carter Show World Tour to the “visual album” B dropped last year.
Platinum Edition Box Set will features two new Beyoncé tracks, “7/11” and “Ring Off,” as well as four new remixes, including the previously released “Flawless” remix with Nicki Minaj. Beyoncé‘s “Blow” will get the Pharrell Williams treatment, the pre-Beyoncé single “Standing On The Sun” will be remixed by Mr. Vegas and the long-rumored “Drunk In Love” featuring both Jay Z and Kanye West will also be included on Platinum.
The Platinum Edition‘s four discs also come with Beyoncé’s 2015 mini-calendar. Fans who digitally purchased Beyoncé when it arrived in December 2013 will have the option of buying only the new material.
Self-professed “Queen Of Bollyhood” Rajé Shwari is ready for her return to the spotlight.
Born in the United States with close ties to her Indian culture, Shwari first found fame when she guested on hits like Jay-Z‘s “The Bounce” and Timbaland‘s “Indian Flute.” With a new set of music on the way, Shwari sat down with me for the “Change The Game” segment on “International Affair With Boss Lady” (The Cut channel, DASH Radio) to talk about her big break in the industry, stepping away from Timbaland to do her own thing, crucial advice from Missy Elliott and more.
