House Music Hits The Grammy’s.

For years electronic music has been a sound of the underground. Although it’s a huge deal overseas, for some reason, American’s just haven’t given it the credit it truly deserves –until now.

This year has been huge for the electronic scene. With more on-air rotation for house dj’s than ever before, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, & others have somehow gotten a lot more attention from music lovers by collaborating with big names.

& this year for the first time ever there will be a house music performance at the Grammy’s! David Guetta will perform alongside Chris Brown & Lil Wayne & Deadmau5 will be spinning his remix of the Foo Fighters ‘Rope’ along with Dav Grohl & the rest of the band outside of the Staples Center in a huge tent for 1,000 people!

So exciting!

Make sure to catch the 54th annual Grammy Awards this Sunday on CBS!

Drake Ditches The 305.

It looks like Drake is ditching his Miami life for some California sunshine instead. The Young Money rapper has put up his two condos (which he turned in to one larger condo) at the Marquis Residences in Downtown Miami for sale just last week.

Apartment hunting? Well then today is your lucky day! For only $2.5 million both condos can be yours! Think about it, you can live just like Drizzy Drake, DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, & the rest of the Young Money crew did in the ‘I’m On One’ music video –sitting on plastic covered furniture, surrounded by boxes and your boring friends, drinking out of styrophome cups. Now, that’s the life.

But the view, the view is what gets you. I mean, who wouldn’t wanna drink a Four Loko on that balcony? It just screams cash money.

Anyways, enough about the luxuries. Where’s Drake moving to you ask? What city is greater than the Magic City? Apparently, Drake thinks it’s Calabasas, California. I guess he rather hang out with the Kardashian’s.

What do you think about Drake’s move??

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: MARIA ZOUROUDIS.

It’s not every day I find a YouTube cover artist that I absolutely adore, so when I do find one I like to make a really big deal about them –mostly cause I think they deserve all the support they can get. This week’s pick is a Sarasota native who just so happens to be a Gator like me & now lives in Miami.

The Greek-American songstress not only creatively turns her version of popular songs into something that tends to sound better than the original, but she also writes her own music, and writes songs for other artists as well.

If you’re in the Miami area, you may be lucky enough to catch her performing live. Go on the link below to find out when & where she will be playing around town.

But before you do that, check out some of my favorite covers by Maria below & tell me what you think!

You can watch more of her videos & listen to some of her original work on her website www.mariazouroudis.com

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: ANJULI STARS.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the self-proclaimed Dade County Empress will soon be recognized as ‘Miss 305’ . Her lyrics are meaningful & relatable, her beats are on point with some reggae influence, & her voice is without a doubt angelic.

Anjuli has music in her blood and recorded her first demo at age 16. Since then, she has opened up for Lil Kim, Young Jeezy, & Lil Wayne at the MTV Music Awards in 2005, graduated from Berklee School of Music in Boston in 2008, & has even collaborated with Mr. 305 himself on her original track ‘Raindrops’.

You can download her mix tape Starvation Volume 1 from her website for free. 9 songs, all amazing. Check out 2 of my favorites below!

Brand New J.LO Video Premiere.

Jennifer Lopez gets together with the hottest man in hip hop right now & the hottest man in Spanish Telenovelas in her brand new video for ‘I’m Into You’ & the video is nothing less than HOT HOT HOT, as expected of course from this year’s People Magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman”.

Check out the video premiere from this morning’s TODAY Show on NBC. The song featuring Lil Wayne doesn’t actually feature Wayne in the video, but instead features the super hot Cuban novela superstar William Levy who I’m sure now, will get more than outstanding reviews for his debut. Could this video be William’s big break into mainstream?! I think so!

Black&Yellow or Green&Yellow?

So I have to admit, I don’t care for either team going to the Super Bowl this year, but after Wiz Khalifa’s hit ‘Black & Yellow’ I saw an unbelievable amount of Steelers “fans”, and so I wondered..if it wasn’t for that super catchy song, would there really be so many people rooting for black & yellow this Sunday?

Well now the matchup is finally even because BOTH teams now have songs! Lil Wayne (who I would assume has no connection to Wisconsin whatsoever, but is possibly a huge fan of cheese) came out with ‘Green & Yellow’ and I gotta say, I kinda like this one better. Go Packers? LOL

Check out both songs below. Which do you like better??

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: DANNY VOLA.

It’s the kind of music you’d think to hear at a book store, a coffee shop or even serenade your girlfriend with –until you listen to the lyrics. Adding a twist to all of your current favorite hip hop songs, Danny Vola is an acoustic genius.

The Detroit, Michigan native has covered songs from Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Flo Rida, & Wacka Flocka & has the ability to make them sound like the most romantic songs ever written.

His website is under construction right now but you can still download his mixtape ‘Look Ma, Both Hands’ for free at DannyVola.com . Check out some of his songs below & tell me what you think!

Special thanks to @nickontheradio from Y-100 for introducing me his music! Make sure to follow Nick’s blog at NickOnTheRadio.com for all the latest in Tech, Music, & Pop Culture!

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: VERS’

It’s been a while since I’ve done an artist of the week post but I saw this kid today and could not let the chance pass me by to publicly announce that I predict him to be one of the next big things to come out of Miami.

He’s a 17-year-old clean-cut kid from Miami & goes by the name of Vers’ (pronounced verses). The kid is unbelievable & he’s already an internet sensation earning 20 YouTube honors –I didn’t even know YouTube had awards & even Perez Hilton has been tweeting about him. As part of the Maybach Music Latino movement he seems to be the youngest unsigned artist of the group.

His first live performance was in 2010 where he headlined for 2 Live Crew & this year his first mixtape ‘WhoIsVers’ is set to be released.

Check out the videos below where he freestyles imitating Lil Wayne, Drake, Ludacris, & Eminem & also raps alongside T Pain The kid is sick & a definite cutie! Spread the word! What do YOU think??

Weezy Homecoming.

As all of the Twitter, Facebook, & BBM statuses have already confirmed, Lil Wayne is finally out of prison.

After his release from Rikers yesterday, the word has spread that Weezy will be coming home to Miami and celebrating the only way he knows how- BIG.

Apparently, surprising (or not surprising) fans at Drake’s Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour in Las Vegas tomorrow, the entire Young Money crew and a few of his closest friends plan on flying to Miami and celebrating his release at a huge private party & then of course ending the night at none other than the classiest of establishments, King of Diamonds strip club.

Mack Maine told MTV in an interview recently, “It should be a lot of beautiful women, just … beautiful scenery. Just treat him like a king, like the royalty that he is and make him feel like we really missed him and welcome him back to the family, basically.”

Welcome home Weezy! You surely were missed! <3

Lil Wayne Still At It.

No 4×4 iron cell can keep this man from making hits.

Just last week, Drake visited his mentor at Rikers Island & Wayne recorded a verse over the instrumental version of Drake’s ‘Light Up’ track from a telephone in his cell!

The new version of the song featuring Wayne was played last night on Ustream & Drake says it will be part of an upcoming project the two are working on -a collaboration album.

Check out the LIVE USTREAM video that Drake made last night with Wayne & tell me what YOU think!
