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. 

New Music: Trey Songz Releases 'About You'/ New Tune Set To Be Featured On 'Trigga Reloaded'

In Trey's new tune, 'About You' the singer samples Janet Jackson's 'Son Of A Gun.' The song is set to be featured on 'Trigga Reloaded.' 

The song actually isn't bad for Trey's standards. I don't think I've said that a song by Trey Songz was good in a while, so this is actually is a big deal. I mean, nothing against Trey Songz, but I feel with every song, he's trying to prove something. Like, this goes for just about every male singer in the R&B industry.

I've always felt in every song, Trey Songz spoke on the same concept, which was sex. Sure, not every song tells the same storyline, but it speaks on the same subject, which is sex, which usually gives me a harder time to like artist such as Trey Songz, especially considering he didn't start out with the same sound, that he has currently. Yes, evolving is great especially for artist, but evolving is usually only good, when you get better, from your previous material. I've never had anything against his singing, but his ways can get old easily.

I think the song itself is very laid-back, and a bigger improvement, compared to 'Slow Motion.' With some decent promotion, this song could definitely expect much support on Urban formats.

I don't see it for this 'Reloaded' album though. It isn't the music itself, but the fact that he is trying to re-release 'Trigga.' I feel what happen sales-wise for the album, is it. It wasn't like he got a hit far after the release of the album, which would make more sense for a re-release. I just think this is a late date for a re-release, unless he has plans of picking a new single, and debuting a music video. As I said though, as long as there is some kind of promotion, this album could go somewhere. I just think he should start fresh, with 'About You' as the leading single. It's a fresh cut from him. I wouldn't keep continuing with 'Trigga.'
