PJ Morton Drops Video for ‘Go Thru Your Phone’

Singer/musician PJ Morton has released a visual for his latest single “Go Thru Your Phone.”

The video was filmed in New Orléans and was directed by Cinemadona, who worked as a cinematographer on Beyoncé’s hit single “Formation.”

The song speaks on trust in a relationship and discusses the choice one makes to avoid discovering a spouse’s unfaithful acts. Although the subject is serious, Morton chose to lighten the mood by creating a comedic tone throughout the video.

“When I was writing the song I knew that it was a serious issue, but at the same time, kind of comical to talk about in song form,” said Morton. “I wanted the video to reflect that. I wanted it to have a funny edge to it.”

“Go Thru Your Phone” is lifted from Morton’s latest album, Gumbo, which is available now.

“The reason that I called the album Gumbo is, number one, it’s first one I made at home in New Orléans, but also because there’s so many different subject matters,” Morton told Essence. “For me, that was me being ‘woke.’ I didn’t want to just do something that’s commercially acceptable. Of course I want it to sell but more importantly, I want people to know that there’s a difference between entertainment and art. Entertainment is what you want but, sometimes, art is what you need.”

Mary J. Blige Talks ‘Mudbound’ Film with Tracee Ellis Ross

Mary J. Blige visited Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night to promote her role in the Netflix film, Mudbound.

The 46-year-old singer shared tons of laughs with guest host Tracee Ellis Ross, as she answered random questions on whether she prefers a window seat or aisle seat on flights, if she ever Googles herself and her favorite superhero.

Following the icebreakers, Blige switched gears and discussed her role in Mudbound. “It’s really a powerful film and there is a happy ending,” she said. “It’s a very relative story to today as well because a lot of people don’t seem to get the memo that we are free. We’re all free. All nationalities. We’re free.”

Blige also talked about the 25th anniversary of her debut album What’s the 411? She recalled her early memories of coming to Hollywood that era. “Then I came back to shoot the “I’m Going Down” video for the My Life album,” said Blige.

Kenny Lattimore Visits ‘Sister Circle Live,’ Talks Cultural Appropriation in Music

R&B veteran Kenny Lattimore made a press stop to TV One’s Sister Circle Live on Monday (Dec. 4).

Dressed in comfortable winter attire, the dapper crooner sat down with hosts Rashan Ali and Syleena Johnson to discuss a range of topics including his new album, Vulnerable.

While the response from fans and critics for his current project has been great, he revealed he wanted to go with another genre for this studio effort. “I was going to make a jazz album to be honest,” he shared. “But my last album, Anatomy of a Love Song, did really well and I was like, ‘Well let me give the public one more in this particular time period before I start to change it up a little bit.’”

With cuffing season in full effect, Kenny says his new album has him “open to falling in love again.”

Lattimore also dished on cultural appropriation in music. “To be the creator of a music art form and to be dismissed from it is one of the most devastating things ever,” he candidly said.

Lattimore’s ninth studio album, Vulnerable, is available in stores and for streaming. His holiday album, A Kenny Latimore Christmas, is out too.
