WIth the recent release of her debut album, Music Speaks, and her single, "Cried," Glover continues to motivate women everywhere.  Read the full interview to get Candice Glover a little better...


Drew 32, writer, producer, videographer—you name it he has done it. His hands on approach to his brand of music is admirable. From the D to the world, with stops along the way as an opening act for Gym Class Heroes, Kendrick Lamar, and the New Boyz hasn't hurt. His performances at Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Music Conference have done wonders for his buzz, and odds are his production going forward will be just as stellar. Drew32 Recently released The Batch, an ode to his fans, and a teaser for what 2014 and beyond hold.  Judging by the attention his hit single “I Am King,” is getting along with his mantra, 'the more content, the better,' the future is very bright for this Greek-American artist.  Parlé with me as I introduce to you… Drew 32.


I
t has been three years since Ledisi released her last project, Pieces of Me, but the sultry songstress has been touring worldwide and appearing on television screens ever since. Her latest project, The Truth, serves as a natural continuum to her previous works demonstrating the behaviors of a strong, confident woman in love.  


The sequel to the 2009 release, We Are Young Money, Rise of An Empire fashions itself as something new and epic, but hinges on formulaic material that only reaches to live up to its hype. Incorporating the new signee, Euro, into the mix does assist in making the audio journey an earnest effort – if only for a time.


I’ve been a fan of this young woman since her YouTube days as Phatfffat, but nowadays she goes by Dondria Nicole. She started out as a YouTube sensation singing covers songs of artists like Usher, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Brandy and several others. After releasing her debut album with So So Def Records, Dondria became somewhat of a household name. Today, she is working on a new album to reintroduce the world to who she has become as a young woman. Miss Nicole is not only beautiful and ravishing, but home-girl can sing the heavens down!!! It was such a honor meeting and chatting with her. Check out the interview below and catch up on what this talented young lady has been up to.


Songstress and industry veteran, Ashanti is back with her first album since 2008's The Declaration. After the extended delay, the new album, Braveheart is almost surprisingly solid. Almost because it's easy to forget that Ashanti has a catalog full of hit songs and a history of putting out some pretty good music. While Declaration wasn't her best work and the single, "Good Good" left a slightly bad taste for fans and supporters, her return here is precise and well thought out. With a new team and a new label, Written Entertainment, in place, this fresh start is just what she needed to remind listeners of the quality of music she is capable of putting together.
