Chris Brown just dropped his 10th full-length album! The highly anticipated “Breezy” features 24 songs in the standard edition and a whopping 34 songs in the deluxe edition. As expected from a project from CB, the entire release is full of r&b hits just in time for the summer!
Two of these songs feature writing credits from Filipino singer/songwriter John Concepcion. John took to his Instagram to announce the news last week:
“Show It” has social media raving and is clearly one of the standout records off of “Breezy.” Congratulations to John Concepcion! You can pre-save the singer’s upcoming single here.
Live music is back and H.E.R. did not disappoint with round two of her own “Lights On Festival.” When she meant that her friends are pulling up to the show, she did not disappoint. H.E.R. already had a dope lined up set with artists like Bryson Tiller, Ari Lennox, Ty Dolla $ign, Lucky Daye, Masego, Kiana Ledé, Keyshia Cole and Erykah Badu. She definitely pulled out all the stops.
With the festival kicking off in the Bay Area, you know she had to bring out other Bay natives for a hometown show. Goapele and Saweetie surprised the crowd as they stepped out on stage to perform with H.E.R. You know everyone was hyped as the crowd listened to mashups of Goapele’s “Closer” and H.E.R.’s “Closer To Me.” Icy girl herself, Saweetie killed it with a duet of “Best Friend.” The coolest part is when H.E.R. shouts out the Filipino when they performed together. It’s safe to say they’re BFF goals.
Ty Dolla $ign also brought up Yay Area favorite P-Lo to the stage and everyone went off! Some let him be P-Lo’s official hype man please!
H.E.R. was so excited to have her own festival that she celebrated it the only way we all know how, with food. She’s a real one coming through with that Starbread Seniorita bread. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re missing out big time.
You have to check out the dope footage that recaps highlights from the festival! Don’t worry, we got fomo too watching these fan videos! The quality though made us feel like we were front row!
