LIVE VIDEO Lauryn Hill "Turn Your Lights Down Low" Raggamuffin Festival 2010

Because I miss her so much, here's another video of Lauryn Hill performing at The Raggamuffin Festival 2010.

Parce qu'on aime Lauryn Hill Voici une autre video de sa performance au Raggamuffin Festival 2010.

A decade without D'Angelo / Une Décennie sans D'Angelo


January 25th 2000 was the day Voodoo, D’Angelo’s sophomore album was released.I was just 15  years old.I know it must sound cheesy but I knew that I would love D'Angelo forever.

When you talk about Voodoo you talk about a debut at Number 1 at the US billboard 200 chart, a platinum album (1 700 000 records sold) , two Grammys ( Best R&B album and Bets Male Performance ) , one video which ranks #44 in VH1's list of the 100 Greatest Videos ( you see which one I’m talking about). The album was also ranked number 488 on Rolling Stone's November 2003 publication of the 500 greatest albums of all time, which made it one of only thirteen entries released in the 2000s to be included in the magazine's list. D’angelo has been considered than as a Neo Soul precursor. But some people had troubles defining the genre of Voodoo. In the album's EPK, D'Angelo said that Voodoo is "like a funk album. The natural progression of soul, the next step to soul is funk".

In my opinion, D’angelo is more than one musical genre. He’s funk, he’s soul, he can be Hip-Hop and he's definitely moret than the "naked guy" .I consider Voodoo as one of the best albums of the past decade. As much as I loved Brown sugar, Voodoo is a trip to cloud nine.D’angelo smooth voice and musical skills with the help of others artists ( Raphael Saadiq, Questlove ..)  provided us an album filled with spirituality, love, erotism (The video!!!!) but most of all a masterpiece, a gift for music lovers. Many artists have inspired themselves listening to D'Angelo sound ( even album cover yeah Trey Songz I'm looking at you)  It's been a decade now and the D'Angelo fans just like me are just waiting for the rumored ( for years now)  new D'Angelo album. 
This album was certainly one of the most important album that helped me confirm my musical preferences as I had it on repeat back in the days enjoying each melody, each whispering, each words ( when it was possible to hear them ;) ) Since Maxwell is back and Sade too, I only need Mr Brown Sugar to be back in 2010 to make this year greater.

DOWNLOAD Curt Chambers "Crash Landing"

This my mixtape of the moment.I just discovered Curt Chambers via SoulCulture. And I got to admit that some of the tunes are very catchy.It's a 24 tracks mixtape featuring Eric Roberson, but also with covers of artists such as D'Angelo or Prince (my favorite ones ). Take a listen and let me know your thoughts.

Voici ma mixtape du moment.Même si, je le confesse, je ne sais pas grand chose sur Curt Chambers.Mais je sais qu'il y'a dans cette mixtape une version de deux de mes titres préférés qui vaut le détour.Dites moi ce que vous en pensez.

"How Does It Feel ( D'Angelo Cover) "
"Purple Rain ( Prince Cover) "


This is the new Soul sensation from UK.The 21 year old songstress just released he first video " My Baby Left me" off her upcoming debut album to be released this spring. She is one of the artists to watch in 2010.And I'm pretty sure she's going to be huge!!!

Révélation de la scène Soul Britannique, Rox nous dévoile son premier clip "My Baby Left Me" extrait de son premier album prévu au printemps prochain.Elle fait partie d'une de mes artistes à suivre en 2010.Qu'en pensez vous ?

LIVE VIDEO Corinne Bailey Rae "Closer"

Corinne Bailey Rae has returned with a new album The Sea and she performed on the The Today Show "Closer"

De retour avec un nouvel album The Sea, Corinne Bailey Rae était sur le plateau du Today show pour interpréter une chanson extraite de ce nouvel album "Closer"

MUSIC Vivian Green "Beautiful"

Just last week,I was listening to Vivian Green's "Emotional Rollercoaster" wondering what ever happened to her.And I think she heard me cause few days after, "Beautiful" appeared.I really want to think that she's maybe working on a follow up to Vivian released in 2005.But one thing is sure, she still got her vocal abilities and it feels good to hear her again.

La semaine dernière, je me suis replongée dans ma discographie de Vivian Green et je succombais de nouveau en écoutant son "Emotional Rollercoaster".Je me suis alors demandé ce qu'elle était devenue.Par miracle (oui oui !!) elle a entendu mon message et quelques jours après, apparaissait "Beautiful".J'espère vraiment que c'est un signe du retour de l'artiste car il est évident qu'elle n'a rien perdu de sa voix depuis son dernier opus Vivian sorti en 2005.

VIDEO 15 Darkchild Hits Mix

Because HE IS THE MAN behind the almost all the best R&B songs/hits I've heard. Because I can say he contributed to my love of music.I blamed on a previous post R&B for what it is now.I blamed the industry for making David Guetta the new Darkchild ( Don't get me wrong, he got talent but Darkchild made R&B what it is ) and when you'll watch this video you'll see why we are celebrating his 15th anniversary in the industry.

L'homme derrière les tubes R&B les plus repris de la planète célèbre ses 15 ans au sein de l'industrie musicale.En regardant la vidéo vous comprendrez pourquoi je m'insurgeais (oui je m'insurgeais) contre le fait que le R&B de nos jours soit ce qu'il est.

ARTISTS FOR HAITI...(Hope For Haiti Now, Un geste pour Haiti & More)

We all know about the tragedy that took place on January 12th in Haiti. Since then, many celebrities,artists but also anonymous from all around the world showed their support to the Haitian people. Musicians have made their contribution with songs, performances such Hope For Haiti but also many benefit concerts .

Depuis la terrible tragédie qui s'est abattu sur Haiti au début du mois de Janvier, artistes,célébrités et anonymes de par le monde ont apporté leur soutien au peuple Haitien à travers des chansons, des prestations et des concerts de charité tel que Hope for Haiti (à l'initiative de George Clooney ) mais aussi un peu partout dans le monde.

MUSIC Damian Marley & Nas "Strong Will Continue" + "As We Enter"

This is one of my most anticipated album of 2010. Some will say we saw the same thing with Best Of Both Worlds with R. Kelly and Jay Z.But I got to admit as much as I love Hova, I like to think that this one is different.Distant Relatives is really something I look forward to hear and the first singles are very promising.Listen and Download after the French post.

C'est un des albums de l'année 2010 que j'ai hâte d'entendre.Bien sûr, le concept a déja été entendu avec Best Of Both Worlds de R. Kelly et Jay Z: deux univers, deux artistes, Un album. Mais j'aime penser que celui la sera différent (certes ici il ne s'agit pas de R&B mais de Reggae) et je trouve les premiers singles prometteurs.

"Strong Will Continue"

"As We Enter"

MUSIC Gorillaz Feat. Mos Def & Bobby Womack " Stylo"

They are back!! Gorillaz's last album Demon Days was released  years ago and I am still digging "Fell Good Inc.".But Something is telling me that Plastic Beach is going to be huge.With guests like Bobby Womack, Mos Def, Snoop Dogg, Kano, Little Dragon ( YES!) , Lou Reed and more, this album has a great potential and I am waiting for it. The album will be released in March 2010.Listen to the first single "Stylo" Feat Mos Def & Bobby Womack after the french post + Tracklisting

J'adore l'univers Gorillaz, leur musique, leur univers virtuel, leur clips vidéos. Demon Days, leur dernier album date déja de 5 ans et cette année ils sont de retour avec Plastic Beach. Et vu les guests présents, je pense que cet album a un énorme potentiel ( Je n'ai jamais été décue par Gorillaz de toute facon ) et le premier single est tout simplement génial.J'ai hâte d'entendre tout l'album!! Sortie prévue le 8 Mars 2010.

Stylo Feat. Mos Def & Bobby Womack

LIVE VIDEO Lauryn Hill "Doo Wop (That Thing) " Raggamuffin Festival

I've waited so long to see the comeback of Lauryn Hill, and even if this isn't a comeback, it feels really good to see her .The last time I saw of her perform, it was for her MTV Unplugged in 2002.See it's really been a long time. Maybe she doesn't realize how much good real Music miss her and I do too!!

On se demande tous où est passé Miss Lauryn Hill. Elle était très attendu pour sa tournée Européene l'été dernier mais celle ci fut annulée. Quel plaisir de la voir chanter au Raggamuffin Festival en Nouvelle Zélande la semaine dernière.Est ce le signe d'un retour? Je ne sais pas, j'en doute même mais une chose est sure je ne vois aucune "artiste" de nos jours qui lui arrive à la cheville.

Maxwell performed "Fistful Of Tears" on the Oprah Show for Haiti Relief.

Maxwell a interprété "Fistful Of Tears" lors de l'émission d'Oprah en soutien à Haiti.

LIVE VIDEO Keri Hilson "Knock You Down ( Acoustic )"

If in 2009 you missed Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down" featuring Ne-Yo and Kanye West, I don't know where you've been.She performed for Billboard an acoustic version of the song and I really think she has to sing it like that every time.What do you think ?

Impossible d'être passé à côté de "Knock You Down" en 2009, le tube de Keri Hilson avec Ne-Yo et Kanye West.Pour Billboard, elle a interprété une version acoustique de son succès planétaire et je pense que c'est comme ca qu'elle devrait l'interpréter à chaque fois.Qu'en pensez vous ?

Gil Scott-Heron is a legend just like Curtis Mayfield, Otis Redding or Marvin Gaye.He's now 60 and is back with a new album to be released on February untitled I'm New Here. The first single/video is "Me And The devil" and I gotta say I love it!!

VIDEO + MUSIC Dionne Bromfield & Zalon " Ain't No Mountain High"

If you thought you knew everything about "blue eyed soul" you were wrong. Indeed, there's already the amazing Mayer Hawthorne or Eli "Paperboy" Reed but now here comes Jesse Dee! Thanks to a Twitter friend of mine, I've been introduced to his music and I was just amazed by the songs.Like his fellow Boston phenomenon Eli "Paperboy" Reed, Jesse Dee is a Soul man, he's also a Blues man but above all that he's a talented man!He released his fist album Bittersweet Batch released last year is just pure "Soul Food".And actually it's more "sweet" than "bitter", 12 songs and everything is there: it's bluesy, it's soulful. If you don't believe me listen to the song and watch the videos after the French post. And let me know your thoughts...

Dans la famille " Je suis blanc et je suis un Soul Man " on avait Eli "Paperboy" Reed, Mayer Hawthorne et voici mon nouveau grand coup de coeur .Découvert grâce à un de mes amis sur Twitter, je suis comme dirais l'autre "en amour" devant le Monsieur.Mais qui est donc mon nouvel amoureux ? Diplomé d'Arts Appliqués et originaire de Boston tout comme Mr Reed, Jesse Dee a ce timbre de voix et ce talent qui fait de lui un véritable Soul man , un blues man.Son premier album Bittersweet Batch sorti l'année dernière est un petit bijou Soul comme on n'en fait plus.Si vous ne me croyez pas écoutez "Slow Down" et regardez les vidéos qui suivent.Et dites moi ce que vous en pensez...

Sunday Soundtrack..."Back to the Basics" Tribute

I remember when I was younger ( not that I'm old lol ), Sundays were the days when my dad used to play all his records or vinyls, from Marvin Gaye to Barry White , Quincy Jones or Ray Charles ( I think he still does that).He is the reason why I love so much Soul, Blues and Jazz music.And still now, sometimes he just calls me and asks "Do you remember this song or artists? Can you find it for me?" and when we are together we talk about Music ( among others things ) and I still learn so much from him.I still spend my Sundays listening to Nina Simone, Muddy Waters Etta James or Ray Charles. I wanted to share this with you with a little compilation of some of the artists, legends my dad loves that are now gone .Hope you'll enjoy!!

Je me souviens quand j'étais plus jeune, les Dimanches étaient les jour où mon père jouait ses disques, ses vinyles de Marvin Gaye à Barry White en passant par Quincy Jones ou Ray Charles ( je crois qu'il le fait toujours).Il m'a transmis son amour de la Soul, du Blues, du Jazz.Et même maintenant, il arrive qu'il m'appelle et me demande " tu te souviens de cette chanson ou de ce ( cette ) chanteur ( euse )? Tu pourrais me trouver ce disque ou ce live?"et lorsqu'on est ensemble, la discussion nous ramène toujours à la Musique, je découvre toujours des légendes, un univers.J'ai gardé l'habitude d'écouter les Dimanches Nina Simone, Muddy Waters, Etta James ou Ray Charles.Je voulais partager cela avec vous avec une petite compilation de chansons, de vidéos de légendes disparues que mon père affectionne.J'espère que cela vous plaira!

I'm sure she doesn't sound familiar to you but if you've heard " Party in the USA" ( Miley Cyrus) or "I Need This" ( on chris Brown latest album Graffiti ) you've heard songs she wrote.She also toured with Cindy Lauper, Chris Brown, Macy Gray... At 21 the UK singer/songwriter already has proven her talent  to the industry.She's now signed to Universal Republic Records and I hope she will be releasing something soon ( I think this year ) especially with a voice that could rival artists like Christina Aguilera or Duffy ...
Videos after the French post

Elle s'appelle Jessie J.Elle a 21 ans et a déja écris plusieurs tubes planétaires comme "Party In the USA" ( Miley cyrus) ou "I Need This" ( sur le dernier opus de Chris Brown).Elle est partie en tournée avec Macy Gray, Cindy Lauper et encore Chris Brown.Il ne fait pas doutes que la jeune artiste a du talent.De plus, elle est dotée d'une voix qui n'a rien à envier à des artistes telles que Christina Aguilera ou Duffy.Signée sous le label Universal Republic Records elle devrait sortir quelque chose cette année et j'ai hâte...

DOWNLOAD D'Angelo "The Voodoo Outtakes"

Because I will not feel totally musically satisfied until he returns.Because he has to come back! Here's the "Voodoo outtakes".Some of this songs are live songs, rendition or just him having fun on the keyboard and it's all good.This is why I want him back

Je ne me sentirais pas totalement musicalement satisfaite tant que Mr Brown Sugar ne reviendra pas nous livrer l'album qu'on attend tous les ans et que j'attendrai encore cette année.Voici en attendant " The Voodo Outtakes", compilation de performances live, de reprises de classiques...en bref du concentré D'Angelo.


I just remembered that I forgot to publish this post months ago but here it is!
Name:Sanne Putsey aka Selah Sue
If you wonder what's the deal with her, just listen to her voice.First time I heard her ( it was her song "Fyah Fyah" especially at the end)I was like " Is it really her singing ?". There's no doubt the girl is talented and her voice is just amazing and it's great. She already released an EP " Black Part Love" and it's rumoured that she's working on her first album.You can listen to her EP on her MySpace Page.
Videos after the French post

Voici un post que j'avais oublié de publier il y'a quelque temps de cela et je m'en veux terriblement pour ca.Voici le topo:
Nom:Sanne Putsey alias Selah Sue
Pays:Belgique ( Mais rien à voir avec Johnny )
Et ce qu'elle a de si particulier c'est sa voix, son style.Dès la première écoute on est surpris pas sa voix, son talent ( surtout à la fin de son titre " Fyah Fyah").Avec un EP à son actif, il se murmure que la jeune demoiselle serait en train de travailler sur son premier album ( que je serais heureuse d'écouter).Mais en attendant vous pouvez écouter son EP "Black Part Love" sur sa page MySpace.

DOWNLOAD Raheem DeVaughn " Mr February aka March Madness" Mixtape

This is an appetizer!! Mr DeVaughn releasead this mixtape in anticipation of his upcoming album "The Love & War Masterpeace". And I like it a lot!

What do you think ?

Voici un avant goût de ce que nous réserve l'album de Raheem DeVaughn "The Love & War Masterpeace" et j'en redemande. Mr DeVaughn a le don de reprendre une chanson et d'en faire quelque chose de meilleur ( "Re-Invented Sex" désolée Trey Songz) ou de différent ( "Soldier Of Love" de Sade). De bonne augure pour l'album prévu pour Mars 2010.Qu'en pensez vous ?

Kano is ,like Dizzee Rascal, one of the UK rappers I love the most. I remember jamming to his song with Craig David " This Is The Girl" like it was yesterday. His new song "More Than One Way" is part of a project to motivate kids to get diplomas, to promote education.In other words Kano is telling to "Inspire, Be Inspired, Achieve And Succeed".

Kano est ,avec Dizzee rascal, un des rappeurs "So British" que j'adore.J'espère qu'un des deux noms vous dit quelque chose.... Son nouveau single " More Than One Way" fait partie d'un projet qui aide à la promotion de l'éducation chez les jeunes. Bonne Chanson, Bonne Cause!!

VIDEO PREMIERE Sade " Soldier Of Love"

I AM HAPPY! Today my musical year officially started with the video premiere of Sade's "Soldier Of Love". I am a die hard fan of Sade and this is what I've been waiting. I am already totally, extremely addicted to to the song now the video is here and ,at age 50, the lady looks stunning. I don't know what she's drinking but she should bottle it and sell it!She is GORGEOUS and looks exactly the same than 10 years ago. What do you think ?

J'aime Sade je l'adore je l'idolâtre. Si vous vous demandez pourquoi je vous donne quelques raisons:"By Your Side", "your Love Is King", "King Of Sorrow, "Flow", Ordinary Love" ...est ce que je dois vraiment continuer? Après 10 ans d'absence elle est de retour avec un album "Soldier of Love" et le premier titre du même nom. Elle est absolument magnifique dans la vidéo.En une décennie, elle n'a pas pris une seule ride.Je ne connais pas son secret de beauté mais elle devrait le commercialiser.Qu'en pensez vous?

"Can't Stand Yo Love"



She sings in English,French and Spanish.She was born in Los Angeles from Congolese parents and lived in Ivory Coast, Benin, Senegal…Her music is just like her full of many different influences from Soul music to African music.She released her EP last year and I totally love her response to Musiq Soulchild’s “So beautiful” .It’s available on free download on her website [click on the image to download] and you really should listen to it.

Que ce soit en Anglais, en Francais ou en Espagnol nous séduit avec le timbre de sa voix. Imprégnée de différentes influences ( elle est née à Los Angeles de parents congolais, a vécu au Bénin, en Côte d’Ivoire entre autres) sa musique est un voyage entres ces differents univers: africain et américain, un subtil mékange de R&B, Afro-Jazz et Soul.Son EP est disponible en téléchargement gratuit sur son site officiel.

VIDEO Jay Z feat Swizz Beatz " On To The Next One"

I gotta admit that when I first heard the song on "The Blueprint 3" I found it good but just that.But now that I've seen the video I'm feeling addicted to it. Despite all the controversy ( Jay Z has been called satanist, illuminati and so many things due to the obvious religious references and blah blah ) I think it's pure art. The director Anthony Mandler ( the same for the "Young Forever" video) just did a great job. And I love it even more than the song!! What do you think ?

A la première écoute, je m'étais dit " Ah pas mal la chanson, c'est quand même Swizz Beatz à la production" mais sans plus.Voila que débarque la vidéo!! Petit bijou artistique en noir et blanc ( réalisé par Anthony Mandler, le même qui a réalisé la vidéo de "Young Forever" ) la vidéo a déja fait couler beaucoup d'encre. Certains ont traité Jay Z de sataniste, d'illuminati et j'en passe vu les nombreuses références réligieuses.Quoi qu'il en soit, je ne savais pas qu'il était possible d'aimer une vidéo plus que la chanson elle même.Et vous qu'est ce que vous en pensez?

VIDEO Anjulie "Addicted2Me"

This is the new video from Anjulie for her single "Addicted2Me" from her self titles debut album "Anjulie". I like the video and I really found her refreshing and this song is one of my favorite on the album [Read previous post here]

Voici la nouvelle vidéo d'Anjulie "Addicted2Me", single tiré de son premier album éponyme "Anjulie". J'aime assez la vidéo et je la trouve toujours aussi rafraichissante.

Introducing.....Szjerdene / Coup De Coeur...

Here's Szjerdene, 21 years old, singer, songwriter and artist to watch.I'm a little late on this one but as I was surfing through SoulCulture website it appears to me that I missed something and it's something good. The girl from London, after a brief experience in modeling is now focusing on her music and working on her EP "Tailored". I thank her for that because I think her voice is absolutely addictive.[Video & Music after the French Post]

21ans, chanteuse,compositrice,et artiste à surveiller.Szjerdene nous vient tout droit de notre bonne vielle Angleterre et est mon coup de coeur de la journée.Aux hasards de mes errances numériques LOL je me suis rendue compte que j'étais passé à côté d'elle il y'a quelques mois de cela sur le site SoulCulture et je ne sais pas comment.Ses mélodies sont preneuses et sa voix envoûtante. J'espère qu'on entendra parler d'elle dans le futur . [Video & Musique après le saut ]

Three albums to get !!!!

Sans titre 3
These three albums were supposed to be featured in my 2009 Retrospective in the 25 albums list but I thought it was better to talk about them in a separate post.
Anjulie, Canadian singer with Guyanese/Indian origin describes herself like a music addict .Her first album self titled “Anjulie” was released this summer and she was even part of the Raphael Saadiq tour this fall/winter. Her music is refreshing and I really enjoy her voice!!

This is ones of the albums for which I am so expecting 2010
First I have to mention two albums that are rumored to be released this year and THEY BETTER BE RELEASED!!!

D’ANGELO ( Rumored)

If I have to wait another 5 years to have a new album from Mr. “Brown Sugar” I will.But there are rumors about him recording a new album ( as always ) but this time it better be true !!!!!If Sade and Maxwell can come back he can too so that I can have back my Soul Trinity!!

AMY WINEHOUSE ( To be announced)


According to her label,she’ll be back this year with a third studio album following the masterpiece “ Back to Black” and I do hope that this one too is true !!
