The Weekend: Music’s New Leader

This 25 year old Canadian has been taking the music industry by storm. What’s up with Canadian Hip Hop Artists anyway (Drake)?

The Weekend whose real name is Abel Tesfaye has been praised by BET, Rolling Stone and SOurce magazine with MTV’s John Norris calling him “the best musical talent since Michael Jackson”. Whoa, slow your roll. The Weekend is great and everything but ….. as good as Michael Jackson? That remains to be seen.

What we do know is that he is super hot right now. He mixes a hip-hop swagger with a new type of R&B vocal. He sites R.Kelly, Prince and Michael Jackson as main sources of inspirations.

His ballad “Earned It” became the song of the summer. It was an unlikely downtempo love song that grew into an anthem being played on almost every station.  Now he’s shown his range with the new pop hit “Cant Feel My Face”,  that is moving up the charts.

The Weekend is the artist to watch this year!

Prince Is Back: Cool New Music You Have To Hear Now

I love old school Prince. I know all the words to the Purple Rain soundtrack. Ok I love all the music form the 80’s and 90’s, but I swear I’m not being biased when I tell you that Prince has been coming out with some of the freshest new music around these days. In a time where there basically is not hard rock or R&B on the radio, Prince is combining them both. It sounds so good to hear music that is not so dulled down like most of what you hear on the radio these days. Yay Prince, glad you’re back.

Perry Ellis SS16: New York Men’s Fashion Week

Perry Ellis Spring /Summer  2016 collection for New York Men’s Fashion Week was all about the modern male uniform. Creative director Michael Maccari presented his take on the new urban male on his way to and from work and the gym. This is a relaxed collection that mixes active wear and work clothes to come up with soothing entirely new. These clothes have a young down-town feel. There is a trend in Men’s fashion towards the ridiculously sloppy. Luckily Maccari has kept some sense of real world /real job style in his designs. Its a contrast to what would come to mind when you think of traditional Perry Ellis, but this collection was still one of the highlights of men’s fashion week.
