Summer maybe almost over, but R&B songstress Bridget Kelly is still soaking in the fun. After releasing her latest EP, Summer of 17 earlier this month, the New York City native tapped her fellow hometown friend Mack Wilds to star in her new visual for her first single, “Act Like That.” The clip, which was directed by J Williams see the two having a blast at a neighborhood cookout along with friends hanging on the stoop, playing cards at the table, drinking and just a good ol’ time.

Who remembers Tasty Tuesdays from Ralph McDaniels’ Video Music Box nightly countdown show back in the day? Well, other then today being the late Aaliyah’s 14th year anniversary since her passing in 2001, Harlem’s own Teyana Taylor wanted to treat her fans to some ol’ skool-inspired tunes. Kanye West’s protégé is heavily influenced by her 90s peers who came before her, and if you’ve been fortunate enough to see her live then you probably heard her sample of Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison” on “Undercover.”

Last night in New York City, Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Bridget Kelly headlines her very own show at the world renowned SOB’s in the SoHo section of Manhattan. If that wasn’t enough, BK invited some surprise guests to join her own stage, including fellow artists and friends Ro James, Jordan Bratton, and Kreesha. Bridget performed selected songs from her new EP, Summer of 17, which she describes the meaning of in our exclusive sit down interview with her. She also performed some more familiar cuts from her previous EP’s and singles, such as “Special Delivery” and her new single, “Act Like That” (which features Mack Wilds; who even joined her on stage and did his own rendition of Musiq’s “Just Friends”).

“We won’t wake up. The dream is never done, no” sings the former Danity Kane members turned Aubrey O’Day and Shannon Bex in their new music video “Dreamsicle,” proving they are in it for the long haul. The song (written by Aubrey’s boyfriend Travis Garland, along with Hayley Steele, Julian Lowe, R8DIO and produced by R8DIO) is upbeat, very club friendly and catchy.

Their self-titled debut album can be pre-ordered HERE. It features 5 songs, included “Dreamsicle,” which can be purchased individually but you’ll have to wait until September 25th when the album releases to get the rest. It also includes 3 music videos. I always thought if artists released music videos with their singles, it’d be more impactful for them and the fans, so I love that they’re doing this. Check out the duo’s very colorful muisc video after the jump and let us know what you think of it! [Read More…]

The response, “Wanna Know” produced by both Jahlil Beats & Swizz Beatz includes snippets in between bars taking jabs at Drake and his alleged ghostwriting claims (Quentin Miller). Meek was supposed to appear on Funkmaster Flex’s show, but due to touring obligations canceled, which in turn delayed getting his response out sooner. Weigh in below and let us know if Meek’s record was worth the wait. Who’s currently winning this battle on wax?
