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. 

Jill Scott Scores Her Second No. 1 Album On Billboard 200:

Congratulations are in order for Jill Scott, who recently debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. Scott's fifth set enters at No. 1 with 62,000 equivalent album units (58,000 in pure album sales).

I'm very proud of Jill Scott, as it's a well deserved achievement. With recent R&B releases, I've noticed other R&B acts support the release, such as addressing those on social media about the record. 

I enjoyed 'Woman,' though it wasn't a highly buzzed album in my opinion, such as her previous releases. It wasn't Jill's fault, as I was referring to not hearing any singles off of 'Woman' frequently played on Urban radio, or coming across her 'You Don't Know' video on TV, which may could've been to the singles being poorly promoted. 

Following the release of 'You Don't Know,' Jill Scott performed the single at 'Black Girls Rock,' and released a video the exact day as the release of the single. The following singles, 'Fool's Gold' and 'Closure' however weren't promoted in the same form, as Jill Scott didn't release a video for the singles, nor perform it following its release (Though 'Closure' was released closely during the release date of 'Woman,' which could explain the singer not promoting it, but 'Fool's Gold,' definitely should've been fairly promoted, as it slightly caught buzz compared to the other single releases)

Still, I'm glad that Jill Scott did receive much support for 'Woman,' as she clearly deserves it. Jill Scott is a promising artist, and truly underrated, so she definitely deserves every amount of success. It's great to see R&B in such a rising position. Congrats once again Jill, and hopefully we receive a video for 'Fool's Gold' or 'Closure.'  Also, what are your favorite songs from 'Woman.' I'm really loving 'Can't Wait' at the moment.
