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. 

Tinashe Readies New Album For November

Tinashe, who released ‘Aquarius’ last year has begun working on her new album. The singer spoke with ‘Billboard,’ on her touring experience with Nicki Minaj, producers she’s working with, and her passion for performing.

Tinashe reveals she’ll be collaborating with Max Martin, Dr. Luke, Nic Nac, Hit-Boy, Travis Scott, Boi-1da and indie producer Dev Hynes.

 I really like Tinashe’s drive. I just wish her record label would’ve supported her more. I had listened to ‘Aquarius’ months after its release, and it was a decent album. Songs I liked from ‘Aquarius,’ were Far Side Of The Moon, Aquarius, Cold Sweat, and How Many Times. I would prefer that RCA Records back Tinashe, because a singer shouldn’t have to fund their own videos. She clearly had a direction, that RCA Records weren’t willing to back her up on. Also, I didn’t think her label was alert. ‘2 On’ was a moderate success, though the singer promoted the single months after its release. ‘Aquarius’ was such a slept-on album, and consisted of many unique sounds, which is why I look forward to hearing the singer’s follow-up. Tinashe has potential, so I’m hoping RCA Records supports her fairly.

Tinashe’s sophomore album is tentatively due for November. The new record will consist of different genres, from dance-pop to Hip-Hop. I’m interested to see how Tinashe balances each sound. Wishing her success on album #2.

Random: Which song from 'Aquarius' do you think should've been a single? I think 'Far Side Of The Moon.'
