Trevor Jackson Drops New Song and Video: ‘B&W (Benz and My Wallet)’

September has been the month of returns for R&B artists like K. Michelle, Toni Braxton, Teairra Mari, and Xscape. Actor/singer Trevor Jackson looks to join in on the fun with his new single and video “B&W (Benz and My Wallet).”

Co-directed by Wyatt Stromer and Jackson himself, the video finds him homeless and begging for change after the girl he loves breaks his heart and robs him of his most prized possessions.

“There goes my love, and all my trust/Should’ve never gave it up/Now I’m sippin’ on a double cup/She was everything to me, my identity/Can’t believe she really got me/I was batman, didn’t know she was Robin,” he sings.

The bass-heavy cut is the first offering from his upcoming project, Rough Drafts, Pt. 1, which will be Jackson’s first dive back into music since early 2016.

As of late, Jackson had been focusing on his acting career, starring in the second season of the now-canceled ABC drama American Crime and the controversial Netflix film Burning Sands. He’ll also be a series regular alongside fellow R&B act Chloe x Halle in the Yara Shahidi-led blackish spin-off grownish, which airs this fall on Freeform.

Avehre Finds Himself ‘Shattered’ on New Song

Rising R&B singer Avehre is back with a brand new track called “Shattered.” On the raw and honest track, an emotional Avehre sings about lost love.

In a statement to Rated R&B, Avehre said, “‘Shattered’ is about a love that was meant to last forever — a love I never wanted to fade away. Unfortunately, we grew apart. Everything we built was shattered in the wind. We could have maybe worked it out. We could have rekindled things but I was left standing there alone,” he said. “Sometimes I reflect on past situations and wonder ‘what if?'” I think we’ve all been there. I remember recording this song in the studio and singing from a place of brokenness, yet clarity because I was clear on what we could’ve been had they stayed.”

“Shattered” is not an official single, rather it’s something to hold over listeners while he works on his next project that is slated to release some time in 2018.

The Memphis native shared a handful of songs leading up to the album’s release including “Make This Song Cry,” “Birthday,” “Either Way” and “Kim K.” On the latter track, some people assumed K. Michelle was throwing shots at Kim Kardashian. However, she explained the song is about cultural appropriation.

“I see some blogs trying to make My song ‘Kim K’ messy, lord if u only knew how fly I think she is,” K. Michelle tweeted. “People are me would tell u. The statement behind the song is black Women are rarely given credit for our cultural trends and flyness.”

She continued, “Truths can be spoken without a shade tree behind them. For ages Black women have been taught by society that our image isn’t good enough for mainstream or that we need to make changes. I believed them and made those SOME of those changes, only 2 regret it.”

On The People I Used to Know, Michelle takes listeners on a journey through her mind. “The album shows me and all my bipolar-ness so it really shows that and I hit on every single emotion of being a woman and being a growing woman,” she once told Billboard. “So it has, even for a man, a lot of things you can relate to you, a lot of life issues this time not just heartbreak but life in general.”

The People I Used to Know is the follow-up to K. Michelle’s 2016 album, More Issues Than Vogue, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
