J Manifest Shines On Anthony Hamilton’s ‘Love Is The New Black’

Published

on

J Manifest does it again.

The North Carolina superproducer with credits from Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and T-Pain, taps in with legendary Neo-Soul singer Anthony Hamilton for his highly-anticipated new album Love Is The Black. For the project, Manifest and Hamilton collaborate on album-cuts “Safe” and “Pillows.” The producer says the soulful collaboration was nostalgic.

“When giving the opportunity to produce for Anthony Hamilton I knew that it was gonna be special. ‘Sonically,’ I wanted to bring nostalgic sounds to connect with his soulful voice. The track ‘Pillows’ fell nothing short of the vision.”

He continues: “Wu-Tang is one of the greatest rap groups ever, I always thought it would be dope to sample a Wu-Tang record and turn into an R&B song. When presenting the track ‘Safe’ to Anthony Hamilton, he over exceedingly brought that idea to life.”

Hamilton’s new project features Rick Ross, Lil Jon, and Jennifer Hudson with production by Bink!, Jermaine Dupri, 9th Wonder, Cardiak. Along with “Pillows” and “Safe,” among the 14-track collection are notable mentions “Real Love,” “I’m Ready” and “Superstar.” The new album is available everywhere via My Music Box/BMG.

VOICES Share New Doc & Soundtrack ‘Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom’

Published

By

VOICES is a community that discusses, develops, and distributes resources by Black Christian content creators for communities of color. Today — in support of the brand’s new historic documentary — the brand shares the original motion picture soundtrack, titled Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom. A 13-song collection that echoes the truth and revelation of how the recently recognized federal holiday Juneteenth came to be. The project features previously released singles “Where Do We Go,” and “Black As Heaven,” and a-list features from hip hop’s biggest names such as Lecrae and Propaganda, who appear on a new posse cut “Black Reconstruction.”

The documentary’s synopsis is as followed:

Uncover the deep spiritual significance of America’s newest federal holiday with pastor Rasool Berry in “Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom,” a new documentary film presented by the Our Daily Bread Voices Collection and Our Daily Bread Media.

Learn how Scripture inspired the faith of enslaved people, travel to the church where America’s first Juneteenth celebration took place, and uncover why newly liberated men and women credited God for their freedom.

With special guests Ms. Opal Lee, Lecrae, and more, you’ll journey to Galveston, Texas to discover a faith stronger than suffering.

Take a look at the documentary below.

The doc paired up with popular music outlet Rapzilla to spread the film’s awareness, with curator Rasool Berry stating:

“The first celebration of what has become known as Juneteenth took place at a church in Galveston, and I discovered that people who were closest to it understood their emancipation on spiritual terms. To really understand that story, we need to grasp their perspective on their own emancipation. The church is where the story starts, but that’s not where the faith component ends. The role of the Black church in establishing communities was really vital, I discovered.”

Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom: A Documentary from @Our Daily Bread Voices Collection is directed by Ya’Ke Smith.

Massachusetts Corey Hales serenades guests at a backyard boogie by the pool in the new visual for his latest single “Cool It Down.” In the Caleb Edens-directed visual, Hales blends various genres with his soulful R&B vocals over classical instrumental and pop-folk vibe. As the days turn to night in the latest visual, Hales’ performance certifies him as an artist-to-watch as we wined down 2022.

Hales on the making of “Cool It Down”: “I bought a mustang and was living on my own for the first time in Charleston, but on a cruise home from my Monday gig I was left thinking about this girl I had just met at the show. I think we all have those moments in our head where we map out everything we wish we said to someone and that’s exactly when the record was born. It’s also the first song I had written as a newly single person after a 5 year relationship, so it’s my personal favorite because all of my memories associated with the song are still super fun and positive.”

“Cool It Down” prepares for the release fo the artist’s highly-anticipated upcoming album, coming soon. “Cool It Down” is available on all DSPs via CAH Music/Foundation Media. Stream it here. Want more Corey Hales? Follow the rising star on social media for up-to-the-minute news.

Hip Hop Video Vixen-turned-recording artist Ms Palomares makes her illustrious debut in music with “2 Cars”. For her grand entrance, Palomares is spoiled rotten by a love interest, who gifts her two of everything — especially exotic cars. “Buy me 2 Cars / Buy me 2 Cars / I only see him him once / but he buy my 2 Cars,” she sings on the song’s catchy hook.

Produced by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie producer Tolah Gran, Palomares sticks to the glamourous bougie girl stereotype and the performance is outstanding. While it shows the novice in her vocals, it’s easy to hear her growth in confidence in every word and you can’t get enough. “While making this record I learned how much work actually goes into studio sessions,” said Palomares in a press release. “I gained so much respect for not only artists but producers and engineers as well.”

“2 Cars” is only the beginning, the popular influencer promises more new music on the way, which will eventually lead up to a forthcoming debut project. The new single is available now via own imprint. For more up-to-the-minute info on Ms Palomares, follow the new star on social media.
