Flavor In The Street

Hello World! Flavor In The Street was something I wanted to do, because I felt I had grown since my previous websites. I feel like I was seeing blogging from a different perspective. At one time, I saw this as more of something I did for fun, and I still continue to see blogging as this, but I also have grown a passion for it. I'm getting a platform, where I get to fully express my views on topics in music. I feel like my opinion is rarely heard, and I want to be viewed as the voice of my generation soon. We never get a platform to talk, and it's now just the beginning. 

The idea of Flavor In The Street was just to restart my brand. I had gotten the idea of the title from one of my favorite shows, "Living Single" along with the slang, 'Word On The Street.' As many of you know, Khadijah James had owned a magazine company titled, "Flavor." I got the idea by combining the two, which later birthed 'Flavor In The Street.'

I'm quite a hard-working kid. I manage to keep my grades together, while running this blog. I've never quite looked into adding more writers to help grow the brand, but of course I'm open to trying new ideas. I plan to adventure quite a lot when I get older, and my taste in music varies. 

Ne-Yo Releases Fourth Single, "Who's Taking You Home" + Plans On Releasing Fifth Single Soon:

Yesterday, Ne-Yo surprised fans with his official fourth single from the album, "Who's Taking You Home."

I really had thoughts on if I was gonna give this track a chance, since Ne-Yo has been confusing his fans a lot lately. Now, as much as I love Ne-Yo, it seems like he just doesn't know where he wants to go as an artist. One minute he's working on a pop track, and the next minute, he's doing R&B. While listening to this new single, I couldn't help, but read comments, from fans complaining about the track, with comments like, "Does anybody miss his old music? The music that told a story that told a story that you could relate to and hit you in the feels. sigh Maybe it's just me."

Well, in the David Guetta-produced track, Ne-Yo tries to convice a girl to come home with him, to spend the night. I think you know the rest...

 The only think that grabs my attention in the track, is the production, so I can't say it's a song that I'll like too much, but based on the previous singles released from this album, I think this will probably be one of the best tracks on the album. I'm only guessing this, because Ne-Yo has a couple of weeks until the release of his new album, "Non-Fiction," and he hasn't done much promotion yet. The vocal performance to the track is basic. It's nothing too appealing, and I wish he would've went a different direction with this track overall anyway. It just doesn't fit well, with this current time of music. I think it would've been best if he released this track around the Fourth Of July. It's more of a party single.

Not saying, it would've did any better comercially, but that's just based on the production and flow of the track. I gotta admit, I'm trying to respect this direction Ne-Yo is going with his new material, but like others, I just miss his classics. I just wish he could possibly experiment with R&B once again. I'm not feeling this new material, but you guys check it out for yourself below! Non-fiction comes out on January 27. By the way, Ne-Yo confirmed that his sixth single will be, "Coming With You," which we'll be released on the 6th of February.
