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: Jordin Sparks 'They Don't Give'

Jordin Sparks announced recently that she would be dropping a new song from 'Right Here Right Now,' each week, before its release. This week, Jordin Sparks released 'They Don't Give,' which was produced by Babyface. 

Each week, I've become more appealed to 'Right Here Right Now,' as the singer continues to release promising numbers from the album. Based upon Jordin's weekly releases, this is certainly a favorite of mine. 

I loved that Sparks worked with Babyface, as they are few producers in the industry who contain a unique sound. (Back then, it was easy to determine who produced a particular song, as each producer had its own sound) Babyface captures a nostalgic sound for 'They Don't Give.' along with a current feel (like his work from 'Love, Marriage, & Divorce.') They are a few producers who can capture a raw sound for a love ballad, so I think the production is very beautiful.

Jordin Sparks sounds angelic, and I love the bridge. She sounds very passionate, as she sings. Also, did anyone else think she sounded like Monica when she sings, "About Love," during the outro of the song? Well done Jordin! Hopefully, Jordin continues to experiment with an R&B sound, as it suits the singer well vocally. She's definitely convinced me to purchase the album, which is scheduled for release on August 21st (ugh, why so close to 'back to school' though?)
