black-violin

Violin duo, Black Violin, enlists singer Melanie Fiona and lyricist Black Thought of The Roots for their latest track, “Send Me A Sign.” The soothing track is lifted off their debut album, Stereotypes, which was released on September 18.

I don’t have anywhere to be tonight / Think about it, it could just be you and I / Cause’ you’re the only thing that’s worth more than time / So send me a sign,” Fiona sings.

Stereotypes debuted at No. 2 on the iTunes R&B Albums chart. The album also includes guest appearances from Robert Glasper, Kandace Springs and Pharoahe Monch.

Wilner “Wil B” Baptiste (viola) and Kevin “Kev” Marcus Sylvester (violin) are Black Violin, a duo who radically fuse hip-hop and pop with classical music to create a kaleidoscope of sounds uniquely their own. Classically trained musicians, they have opened for such diverse top names in music as Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and also creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Linkin Park, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys, the latter for the Billboard Music Awards.

Tone Stith Teams with Ty Dolla $ign for New Song ‘Take It There’

Tone Stith is back with an all-new installment of Tone Tuesdays. He teams up with Ty Dolla $ign for his latest track “Take It There.”

On the tender track, the rising singer stretches his warm falsetto as he cheers his special lady to “take it all off” for him.

Ty rallies for his girl to be a savage in the bedroom. He doesn’t even mind if her backside is real as long as she gives him all-night pleasure.

Stith is no stranger to releasing gems. The singer has brought the heat on songs like “Sex Drive,” “Long Run” and “A Little Bit of Lovin’.” But we’re ready for Stith to drop an official lead single from his debut album.

Somebody’s got Ro James fucked up on his new song, “Excuse Me.” Co-produced by Tricky Stewart and Jean-Pierre Medor, the mellow tune finds James reflecting a relationship where he was giving more than he was receiving.

“You had it easy but you just couldn’t play your part / Our heart was starving while you focused on so many parts / Out of the line, it’s way too old to be acting up,” he sings.

“Excuse Me” is the first single from James’ upcoming sophomore album that will release in November via ByStorm Entertainment/RCA Records. “Feels good to be back,” James wrote on Instagram. “This process has been different, a growing process for sure. [I] had to take some time for my mental.”

In a recent interview with Rated R&B, James compared the approach of his second album to his debut album, Eldorado. “Eldorado was my first time going to the label saying, ‘I don’t want to do this, this is who I am’ and accepting their advice too, so we can create something timeless,” he said. “My next album is the same process — growing with people who now are a part of your trajectory, your growth and who you are. I had a concept from the jump but the thing is finding the sound that matches the concept. It was definitely harder but I enjoyed the process.”
