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 His Sunny Visual For, "Coming With You" + Preps For The Release Of "Nonfiction"

Ne-Yo is still on the continuation of his promo trail for "Non-Fiction." Recently, Ne-Yo released his visual, for his fifth single off the album, "Coming With You." I've never seen Ne-Yo as much of a visionary, when it comes to his visuals. To add on to that, I've just never seemed interested in watching his visuals, therefore, I couldn't say, I expected any surprises this time around.

In the visual, Ne-Yo is seen hanging out with several models on the beach, as he enjoys the sunlight, and is also seen in various scenes, dancing with the models. Now, to start this off, I didn't like the song to begin with, which meant, this was sort of giving Ne-Yo a second chance, to see what he could bring to the table to impress. The video didn't seem to do much for me, therefore, I still don't actually like the song. I mean, to be completely honest, the visual just makes me think of summer all over again, which is clearly over. It's obvious most of this music was recorded early, which would make sense, that he picked a sunny setting to plot the visual. I just hope he knows, that this still isn't doing anything for him. I would like to honestly just sit down, and talk to him for a minute, about his direction, because at this point, I'm sure, he's not even sure on where he wants to go as an artist.

One minute, he's doing a pop track, and the next minute, he's doing an R&B track. He hasn't teased any of the material from his album, other than the singles, so I can't really help him at this point, but I would like to see what "She Said I'm Hood Tho" is all about.
