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 Song: K. Michelle – ‘Not A Little Bit’

K. Michelle recently released her new single, 'Not A Little Bit' from her upcoming album. 

I do feel it's different from her previous lead singles. A lead single is supposed to give you an idea of the overall sound or vibe of the album. It's also suppose to draw the listener in, which is usually due to the catchiness of the song or strong delivery. When I say this is different for K. Michelle, I do sort of mean it in a negative way. 

I felt the production sounded dated. While I listened to the song, I was questioning whether I thought it sounded dated. Other than the production, something about the chorus seems odd or dated to me. If I wasn’t aware that she had recently released the song, I would’ve assumed or guessed that it was a song she released when she first debuted.     

I may be holding this song at a higher standard for it being the lead single. A lead single helps introduce or open a new era, which is why I may be hard towards K. Michelle’s new song. Still, this doesn’t change my level of anticipation for the new album. My only concern was that I felt the song sounded dated. I’ve also heard others compare the song to LeToya Luckett’s ‘Torn’ which I can hear in the chorus of the song. This isn’t a song that I really liked. Perhaps I may need to it grow on me. Listen to the song below and share your thoughts:
