During a conversation with our good friend, who started off at
Jill Scott label, Hidden Beach, and worked at
the Recording Artist
Guild, Clifton Harris
told me he is working with a new artist who is definitely doing his due
diligence to make the game recognize R&B again not since respected
during the times Usher, R. Kelly, and
Sisqo were at the top of the game. Granted, lately you see the
industry put out some awesome pieces like Miguel,
Mario, and of course Chris Brown but, rarely
does the artistry behind R&B get the credit it deserves, amongst
Everybody, meet Donny
Born in Cleveland, a place known to
produce high quality talent like Lebron James, Donny Rajuan grew up watching his
mother sing. "Like mother, like son" in this regard, Donny began singing in the
choir up until high school. Influenced by the aforementioned Usher, Cee
Lo, and Donny Hathaway, Mr. Rajaun credit to success goes toward his God-given
gift. Splashing onto the radio in Alabama with his single "Full Throttle",
he followed it up with "Young, Fly and Getting It". It is this song which
connected him and his manager Clifton Harris in Hollywood. Now, united as a
tandem they released "Fighting Over Me", now
available on iTunes.
Over Me" starts out as most hits do, a sexy voice ready to woo every female that
turns that radio on. The first thing you take is you are able to identify him as
a male singer which has become rare lately. A writer of his own songs, the
melody reminds you of something Sisqo would most like lay down. True to R&B,
he is singing about issues within relationships we all encounter. Singing
from the point of view of the everyday man, constantly at odds with his woman
friends and their opinions. We all, those of us who have been in a
relationship, had to encounter these issues with our counter-part. The
hook "Im sick of talking/trying to defend myself/You aint hearing what I
say/but you listen to someone else/And you always talking reckless/trying
to get someone hurt/you don't think about your actions/but not about what they
worth", can make for a great Facebook that would warrant almost a million
likes, if guys girlfriends weren't watching their page.
This records gets the GO from Themicbooth.com,
due to the production, arrangement, and composition of the record. I would
like to have heard a smoother fade out but, overall the body of work is truly
great. Already picked up by radio, and garnering over 140k hits on
YouTube, this needs to be added to whatever musical device you use. I
suggest you play it after your next disagreement with you significant other and
leave the room. Chances are, you will come back to a bed of roses, some
champagne, and probably a pregnancy test in the morning. Donny Rajaun, great job, great piece of
work and the readers of this get to enjoy it below. make sure you get it
Sorry, pardon our slang. She wasn't actually killed, her song was though. We are unsure of when the song actually posted to social media, but a young phillipino girl must have had a little fairy dust on that comb the way she filled the room with her beautiful cover of Beyoncé's 2003 hit "Dangerously IN Love". If you are currently over the age of 27 you should know the song. Lately social media has been showcasing some diamond in the rough talent and hopefully they get into the right hands and not the hands of the industry sharks who don't know how to manage a million dollar budget with the artist they do have. Except for RCA, RCA seems to know what to do with every artist. I mean, check their roster. But back to the girl, she is pretty awesome. Now I will encourage you listen to the original and you be the judge of how well she compared. In the meantime, enjoy.
Perhaps you heard of her. Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, "Little Ratchet Twerking Girl". Well, if you haven't, chances are you are not watching televison often, never been on google, or have no interest in entertaining yourself outside of drinking beers while shooting chickens from the back of a pick up truck.
The greatest tongue-lasher since Michael Jordan, Miley Cyrus has figured out a way to blend two-cultures together. The Louisiana culture of dance, originally called bounce, with the happy go lucky culture of out of step dancing white girls everywhere. Everyone knows, cool, out-of-step dancing white girls means plenty of booze, plenty of fun, and plenty of a good time. Miley Cyrus has embraced the culture while a certain carribbean bad ass Rihanna looks on in disgust. Reality is, like Jimmy Kimmel parody of Kanye West not too long aqgo, its exactly what it looks like. Black females with fat booties, thick thighs, and seductive back arches that decide to twerk, well this is how America sees you at the end of the day.
Miley Cyrus is doing an awesome job entertaining out there, being one of the few white people that will actually embrace the culture and you know what, its not so bad that she figured out how to capitalize on it while she does. 3 Cheers for my "Little Ratchet Twerking Girl" and give the complaining ass girls out there, who are doing the same thing just not getting paid for it the biggest BOOOOO. Just face the fact you either can be Miley Cyrus or simply a THOT. Your choice.
If there is news out there believe the scoop will be here.
