Tiffany Evans Reminds Us ‘Money Ain’t Everything’ on New Song

Tiffany Evans is using her beautiful voice to spread a positive message. The singer/actress has released a new track on her Soundcloud called “Money Ain’t Everything.”

Evans revealed she wrote and recorded the song four years ago. “I was in a really vulnerable space in my life,” she said in a statement. “I remember being fed up with the world being so materialistic to the point where we hurt others just to get what we want. I just wanted to spread a message that Money Ain’t Everything. It doesn’t guarantee life or happiness or true love. Inner peace, compassion for others and your purpose is really all that matters in the end. With the way everything is happening in the world right now, I hope this song speaks to every soul out there that is seeking Peace.”

“Money Ain’t Everything” is the first song Evans has released this year. Although the track isn’t an official single it will definitely hold over fans until she drops her new project later this year.

Ciara Returns with Upbeat Single ‘Level Up’

Ciara is back! The 32-year-old singer has released her new single titled “Level Up,” which samples DJ Telly Tell’s “Fuck It Up Challenge.” Produced by J.R. Rotem, the uptempo record is about knowing your worth and never settling for less.

“I just keep elevating, no losses, just upgrading / My lessons, made blessings, I turned that into money / Thank God I never settled, this view is so much better / I’m chilling, I’m winning, like on another level,” Ciara sings in the first verse.

Along with her new song release, Ciara also premiered the official video. In the dance-heavy clip, choreographed by Parris Goebel, Ciara and her dancers (The Official Royal Family) bring their A-game as they perform intricate moves in a vacant building.

“Level Up” is the first single from Ciara’s upcoming seventh studio album that will release on Beauty Entertainment/Warner Bros. Records. The album is the follow-up to 2015’s Jackie, which included her platinum single “I Bet.”

K. Roosevelt Shares New Song and Video, ‘Adrenaline’

With the ink now dry on his new Def Jam deal, K. Roosevelt is already getting to work. The Los Angeles native has released a brand new song titled “Adrenaline,” off his debut self-titled EP, due July 27.

Supported by outmoded synths and artful bassline, the R&B newcomer recalls fond moments and precious memories of a special gal. “Used to say she’d cut me loose / If I played you like a fool,” he coos on the peculiar number. “Either way I’ll come with you / Understand me, comprehend it / I just want to know the truth.”

Roosevelt also premiered the video for “Adrenaline,” which was directed by Sean Brown. The retro-themed video finds Roosevelt playing a blue electric guitar outside of a West Coast-styled home. He later joins friends at the poolside for laughs and vibes.

On July 20, Roosevelt will continue the EP rollout with “Blinding My Way,” the second single. He will premiere its accompanying visual, too.

Before signing to Def Jam, Roosevelt received artist nurturing from producer Hit-Boy under his Hits Since ’87 label.
