I Met Kanye West…

…in my dream last night.  So basically, I’m never going to fail.

Speaking of Mr. West, congrats to him and his most recent album The Life of Pablo for debuting at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and it is the first album to attain the top spot off of streaming numbers alone.  You can hate him, but he knows what he’s doing and clearly the people love his music (which is why you should like him!).  Another impressive TLOP fact, according to Tidal, is the album streamed 250 million times in just the first 10 days!  That’s insane.

Moving on to another album that I’m sure will be on top of the charts.  That is Drake’s Views From the 6.  And we finally have a release date!  APRIL 29.  Drake announced the date at the very beginning of Saturday’s OVO Sound Radio episode.  Why on the 29th?  Well, if you watch the promo video below, which you should, this past year has been very exciting and rewarding for the Canadian rapper.  And with him being 29, it’s fitting he drops the album on that day as well.

Views will be released exclusively on Apple Music.

MAJOR KEY ALERT.  But seriously.  DJ Khaled took to Instagram this morning to announce his 9th album titled Major Key.  Be on the lookout for new singles, as I’m sure those will be dropping here and there.  I’m waiting for that Future and Jay Z single.  Fire.  There’s no official release date yet, but it will be dropping this year.  On top of that exciting news, Khaled also announced in his post that he has formed a new partnership with La Reid and Epic Records.  With much respect for Reid, he was the first one to give We The Best Music an opportunityto distribute Khaled’s music on a larger scale.  Maybe after this album drops, people will be like “ohhhh, that’s DJ Khaled, he’s talented!” instead of “oh, he’s that famous guy from Snapchat.” -_____-

Last but certainly not least, please read here to learn more about Fun Friday, courtesy of YesJulz Agency.  What is Fun Friday?  Julz and her squad recently visited an elementary school in Miami where they brought music, art, fun, (and pizza, of course!).  Unfortunately, in the past few months, the school lost their art funding.  There are no creative outlets for these kiddos to express themselves.  So the good gals of YesJulz Agency decided to bring the creativity to them but they need your help in funding to continue to provide these Fun Fridays!  Can’t donate?  No problem!  Share the picture below on your social channels and be sure to tag @yesjulzagency and @Movingforwardtg to encourage others to donate.   Donate here today, and thank you in advance for your support!

Make Fridays FUN

Have a great Monday, yinz!

NEW (sort of): Travi$ Scott – ‘Uber Everywhere’

Okay, so I know Travis’ version of this song has been out for a little while now, but he Tweeted this morning the official SoundCloud link.  Previously, I was just listening to some upload of it.  And he states in the SoundCloud link that this is not a remix but his actual version – see below.

“birds in the trap sing mcknight
soon
P.s. this is not a remix
Madeintokyo original”

And a little before that Tweet, he blessed us with this news:

TravisScottTweet

I am a huge fan of Travi$, so I can only hope he goes on tour.  I’ll be seeing him with Rihanna in May, which will be epic, but I’m trying to go to a straight up Travi$ Scott – La Flame concert.

And if you’re unfamiliar with Madeintyo, I suggest you take a listen.  He’s behind the new club banger ‘Uber Eveywhere.’  Listen below.

And check out the following song, as well.  I’ll have to write a little piece on this new artist Shake.  We can thank YesJulz for her.

Happy Monday and #NationalCerealDay!

#NEVERNOTWORKING

I’d like to wish a happy birthday to the Snapchat queen, YesJulz.  Real name Julieanna Goddard, Julz has accomplished SO much by the age of 26.  Yes, she is only turning 26 today.  You may see me tweet to her/about her and I’ve definitely mentioned her in previous posts, but I’d like to give you a handful of reasons of why I look up to her so much and why you should follow her – especially if you rock that #NeverNotWorking mentality, which is what she lives by.

Here’s a little bio first to get yinz caught up to speed:

Real name:  Julieanna Goddard

What she goes by:  Julz

Social handles:  YesJulz – major key alert – follow her on Snap!

Age:  26

Where is she from?  Miami – and that’s where she currently lives

What does she do?  She runs her own entertainment, marketing, and event company – YesJulz Agency – with a mission of bridging the gap between cool and conscious.  The agency is comprised of females only.  She’s also known as the Director of Vibes and known for throwing epic ragers that bring the people together.

Life motto:  #NeverNotWorking

I probably started following Julz on social media about a year ago, and I look forward to watching her Snaps each night before I go to bed.  As I mentioned earlier about the parties she throws, she started a series in January called 1AM Vibes.  Well, she hosted her first one in Los Angeles, whch happened to be the start of my birthday weekend.  So you know I had to go.  I rallied up two girlfriends, we Ubered to downtown LA, and raged all night in a warehouse with Julz and major special guest Wiz Khalifa.

From her adventures with girlfriends to business meetings to inside recording studios to offering advice and more, she is someone I look up to both professionally and personally.  You truly see all the ups and downs in her life, which a lot of people are afraid to show – especially the down moments.  While she does only employ women, she is a positive influence for both guys and (cozy) gals alike.

She’s all about hard work, supporting one another, and just living life.  I dig it.  And what’s even cooler?  She went on a nationwide search to find people to be part of her Social Media Street Team, or should I say ARMY.  Well, I obviously applied, and got chosen to be part of it!  There are lots of others involved with this, but I think it’s pretty cool that she wants her followers to be part of her YesJulz team and YesJulz Agency.  I’m really grateful for this opportunity and to help spread the positive vibes that Julz is about.

So instead of me continuing to ramble, I suggest you go follow her – Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat.  Honestly.  You won’t be disappointed.  And she is the plug to lots of epic music and up-and-coming artists.  Trust me.  YesJulz will have you saying YesGoalz.

Happy birthday, Julz!
