Songs You Should Know: “Vibrate On,” Erykah Badu (2008)
Two of my favorites—the television show “Girlfriends” and Ms. Badu—unite for this soundtrack song.
New Music: “Born Sinner,” J. Cole feat. James Fauntleroy (2013)
The album stream for J. Cole’s “Born Sinner” is still up! Buy the album this Tuesday—it’s worth the money.
And I love that Fauntleroy is somewhat in the public eye now. He’s found success as a songwriter, working hits like “No Air” by Jordan Sparks and “Suit & Tie” by Justin Timberlake. But now it seems his name is everywhere! He’s definitely someone whose brain I’d love to pick.
Flashback Fridays “Case of the Ex,” Mya (2000)
This popped into my head this morning and I thought it would make a nice Flashback Friday song—it’s been a while since I’ve done one.
What makes this even better though is that I posted “Case of the Ex” just one year ago for Flashback Friday! Guess everything really does move in a cycle.
Happy Friday! :)
Songs You Should Know: “Everyday,” Millionyoung (2013)
