Skiddalz and I had a concert this week and she unveiled some of her newest tracks. Today Skiddalz released the audio to one of those songs, her latest hit “The Phoenix” and once you take a listen you might thank her for writing this track! I was actually in the studio as this song was being recorded and it brought tears to my eyes. The Centralia, Illinois native stated that this is her most favorite song that she has ever recorded and describes it as very personal and meaningful to her. If you know what it feels like to have odds stacked against you, or if you’ve ever felt like you’ve failed at something and felt like giving up, listen to this song, that’s what I do! What do you think of “The Phoenix” show some love below.
Here is the video to my favorite song on Rihanna’s Unapologetic album. Ri Ri bares all in her official video for her new single “Stay”, which is a follow-up to her song Diamonds. The Grammy winner strips down, and gets into a bath where blue water covers her body. The rest is left up to the imagination. When the video is not focused on Ri Ri’s heartache, it cuts to Mikky Ekko who is featured on the new single. The clip was directed by the legendary Sophie Muller. This is the first time the two have collaborated on a project, and hopefully not the last.
What do you think of Rihanna’s new song and video “Stay”? Do you like Ri Ri’s new style when being compared to the “Umbrella” days? Please leave your comment below.
