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. 

Iggy Azalea Brings "Trouble" To Late Night With Jimmy Fallon + Discusses Taping Of Peformance?

Last night, Iggy Azalea performed her second official single from Reclassified, "Trouble," featuring Jennifer Hudson on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

During the release of the album, I believe some of the tracks off "Reclassified," were being teased by Iggy, herself on Youtube, and I just remember saying to myself, during my first listen to the snippet, that the song sounded really child-like. Like, something about the track just didn'f fit with Iggy's image as an artist, and since then, I haven't even got a chance to listen to the track, but this live performance was very interesting.

It was a little snoozy, but Iggy Azalea took to twitter saying, "Funny story: myself & @IAMJHUD thought the taping of jimmy fallon u all watched was a camera blocking rehersal. hahahaha." With that being said, Iggy pretty much didn't know about the filming of the performance, so I guess you could say they sounded good for what it's worth. With this pretty much being my first "full" listen to the track, I thought the track perfectly described a bop. It's a nice song, but it's not single-material, and I doubt at this point, Iggy cares about promo, as she never released a video for "Beg For It," and rarely did promo herself for "Reclassified," overall. Other than "Beg For It," I couldn't really find any tracks from the album, that I thought were hot enough to sell, so Iggy picked the right decision.

Jennifer Hudson and Iggy Azalea have worked on previous tracks before, and while watching this performance, there body language said a lot, as they make it seem like they had no connection as artist. I mean, I would've assumed they did, since they have worked together before, but possibly I could be the only one catching this weird body language, mainly around the end of the performance.... Okay, I take that comment back. It was just Iggy Azalea's dancing. (Lol) Anywho, the track sort of sounds like a leftover from JHud, as it has that similar groovy, 70's vibe. Take a look at the full live performance below from Iggy and Jhud!!
