It’s been 14 years since, only 22 at the time, young Aaliyah passed away.
For today’s post we have a song A Girl Like You, featuring Treach, from her 2nd album One In A Million, released on Atlantic in 1996.
Produced by Darren Lighty and Kay Gee.
Rest in peace Aaliyah.
Mike Tyson enters music in 1987. You can see Eric B. and Whodini as well as LL Cool J and Flava Flav showin’ their support for the heavyweight champ Mike Tyson in 1987.
Ice Cube and his son, O’shea Jackson Jr., team up to release a new track Reckless In The Booth.

The track is part of a two track 7-inch vinyl release set to drop via Fat Beats on September 18th. The other track, “The Shining Pt. 2” hit the web last year. Both tracks are now available on iTunes, and all other major digital retailers. If you’d like to support, please find all the details below, and I’ve gone ahead and attached the single artwork, which is created by Detroit’s, Michelle Tanguay. As always, grateful for your consideration, and get at me should there be anything else you need!
The dynamic duo of Nightingale and Slakah The Beatchild (BBE/Reservoir) join forces to deliver their first collabo EP, Transition. The pair draw on old soul fused with a contemporary twist for the EP. Slakah’s ability to nurture soundscapes and Nightingale’s penchants for infectious melody and lyrics shape a new take on a classic sound. It’s a different kind of bounce.
“Back To Where We Started” is the first offering from the EP. Laced with blazing bass lines, crackling snares and haunting melodies, Nightingale & Slakah create a sound reminiscent of the golden era of soul music whilst remaining relevant to the mainstream.
The rest of the collection is most suited to good times with friends, sofa concerts or chilling out on glorious rooftops admiring the view. All imagery aside, it’s just a lot of fun, catchy music that could so easily cohabit with any of your favourite soul or R&B gems without being mistaken for the same old, same old.
