WILLOW’s “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l” is a love letter to her constant evolution. She sees the single as a testimony to her desire to be the highest version of herself. Something that she connects well with the angsty, pining feeling of the genres she explores. The songwriter rarely makes videos. But she felt so inspired by “t r a n s p a r e n t s o u l” that she decided to create one. She hopes the visual opens up new meanings for the listeners.

“Everybody see the ghetto as being a bad place. Where people run a muck, ni^^as stuck in a sad state. They don’t see the good times that outweigh the bad days. In the hood, we still smile to lighten up them dark caves. Have a cookout, make the kids dance, then we share a couple of laughs. Pop a bottle, share it with my homies, ni^^a f*** a glass. ‘Bouta roll up, tell ‘em hold up, pass the blunt before I spazz. ‘Cause it’s five ni^^as smoking on a dime bag of gas.” – lyrics

Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Lousy T-Shirt” single, which tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who recently broke up with her significant other. Apparently, she knows her former lover well enough to assume that he’s probably sleeping with someone new. Later, she admits that she lost all respect for him, and her past regrets are things she has to live with.
“‘Lousy T-Shirt’ was written on a hot summer day last year in the aftermath of a break-up. It’s about what’s left behind after an experience like that and how the relationship itself doesn’t feel real to you at all anymore. When you look back, it feels more like you’re watching a movie and not like you actually lived it. Sometimes you might also feel like the other person is getting over everything much more easily, and that all that’s left is a t-shirt – a statement from my ex-boyfriend. It’s a very personal song that I wrote at a stage when I was really angry. After writing it, I wasn’t [angry] anymore. That’s the beauty of songwriting – you have such joy with the new track that you forget everything else. Sometimes that is what’s left after a relationship too: a lousy t-shirt and a song.” – OSKA explained
‘Lousy T-Shirt’ contains a breakup narrative, ear-pleasing vocalization, and sad melodies that will resonate well with fans of SHY Martin, Elina, and Rosie Darling. The unhappy tune serves as an early taste of what’s to come from OSKA’s upcoming full-length debut album.
mags is a is 25-year-old singer-songwriter and producer from Copenhagen, Denmark.

Unfortunately for her, she can’t move on because she still cares about her former companion. Later, she admits that it would be great to know that her ex is still thinking about her.
“I want to release music that has evolved with me. Both the lyrics and the vibe represent exactly where I feel I am right now. Just like everyone else, I’ve used what feels like every single hour of the day in my apartment during the past year. Unconsciously, that state of mind has made me create music that is uplifting and fun. And hopefully, ‘I can’t get over you’ will make everyone else jump up and down, dancing in their lockdown homes, just like I have, listening to the song.” – mags explained

“This music video was a blast to shoot! I worked with a fellow Canadian in Nashville, Ryan Nolan, who really brought my vision to life and cranked it up to 11! What I love most about it is how all my friends showed up for the party and knocked it out of the park performing in the video. The song itself is already three and a half minutes; ‘forget about the world’ kind of song. But the video is on a whole other level of forgetting about the last year and a bit, even if it’s just momentarily. It is entertaining front to back, and I’m sure you’ll have a laugh with us throughout the entire video.” – Shantaia explained

Later, she reveals that she wants her partner to treat her with respect.

Daisy Clark is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Newquay, Cornwall (UK). Not too long ago, she released an appealing audiovisual for her “Front Row” single, about the intimacy and joy of playing gigs. However, the song has since taken on even more meaning. As an unsigned, independent musician herself, Daisy knows first-hand how reliant artists are on touring and the live music industry. It connects artists with new and existing fans in the most unique way and creates some of our best memories with our nearest and dearest.
“I wrote ‘Front Row’ before the pandemic. But I feel like it’s even more powerful now given we have all missed being together at live gigs this past year. It’s been incredibly hard taking this long away from the stage, away from my fans, and potential new fans as well. I know I speak for so many other musicians when I say how essential touring is to our livelihoods. It’s just a real added bonus that it’s an absolute joy to perform. It will mean more than I could have ever imagined being able to see a live audience again. I can’t wait to sing along to this song with you all so soon.” – Daisy Clark explained

Therefore, there isn’t a place in the world where she would rather be than being with her partner.
‘Moment’ contains a relationship-based narrative, dreamy vocalization, and tuneful melodies. The sensual tune possesses laid-back instrumentation flavored with indie-R&B and urban-pop elements. Furthermore, “Moment” follows mildly on the heels of Alyria’s previously released love duets (with Bixxi), entitled, “Out Of My Way” and “Flame.” Plus the song serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Alyria in the near future.

What she needs is a quarter of a million dollars in cash. And that's when Barnes, her only son, along with his best friends, Demus and Baker, spring into dangerous action to get the money.

Barnes, Demus, and Baker are back with another actioned-packed adventure. This time, they travel to Monomotapa, Alkebulan, where the king and queen were recently slain by Ego, a familiar nemesis whom the three Black boys thought they had destroyed in the afterlife. But they were deeply mistaken. Now, Ego has in his possession The Hotep Brother Manuscript, a sacred book filled with spiritual laws and enchanting spells, which he uses to turn the Monomotapan military into Egomaniacs. By his side is Deadra, a divine entity, and their goal is to rule Monomotapa and discontinue all shipments of gold to Planet Black, the home of the deities. Currently, the black planet is vulnerable, protected by a thin layer of gold that is quickly depleting. With the threat of an incoming meteoroid shower looming, there’s no telling what might happen to Planet Black if a large shipment of gold doesn’t arrive there soon.
