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. 

The Numbers Are In! First Week Sales To Maxwell’s “blackSUMMERS’night”

Maxwell made a return this year with the long-awaited, “blackSUMMERS’night,” which the singer dropped two weeks ago. The return however was not as triumphant as his return in 2009. That goes for both the quality and sales.

The “Lake By The Ocean” singer sold 59,000 in his first week. He debuts at #3 on the US Billboard 200. Meanwhile, it’s his third album to debut at #1 on the US “Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums” chart.

Considering the current state of R&B, these are decent numbers. However, Maxwell may not be impressed as the singer takes time off before returning with new music. This is usually done to give the public time for him to be missed. That way when he returns he’s embraced with many open arms. Hopefully, he doesn’t get the assumption that he wasn’t missed, as many were excited for the singer’s return. Personally, this doesn’t top the first album in the trilogy, although there were a few songs that I liked. (1990x, Fingers Crossed, Hostage) Perhaps it needs a few more spins, as it isn’t an album I’d really recommend others buy.

In related news, Maxwell is currently on tour. See if he’s coming to a city near you here
