Music Monday | “Mascara” – Jazmine Sullivan

I’m not sure why, but I’ve been addicted to watching interviews from The Breakfast Club and Ebro In The Morning.

Recently I saw Jazmine Sullivan be interviewed by both morning shows and I fell in Love with her song Mascara.

This song is what I consider a parody. She’s singing about how she never leaves the house without makeup on because there’s beautiful women out there and she can’t be out done.

She starts out the song with:

“Yeah my hair and my ass fake, but so what, I get my rent paid with it.”

Essentially she’s making fun of all of the Instagram “models” who take pride in being a trophy for tangible items. This song = GENIUS.

Mascara is the perfect example as to why Her, She, & Me is needed.

I’ve always thought Jazmine Sullivan was a great singer but I must admit, watching her interviews last week made me a true fan.

Reality Show is the name of her recently released album and so far it is great! And it’s only $9.99 on iTunes. It even features artist Meek Mill which I was admittedly surprised about.

Check out the song and let me know what you think:

Music Monday | The Pinkprint: Set to drop Dec. 15

If you don’t know about my obsession with Nicki Minaj then clearly you’ve been living under a rock.

The hip hop superstar has just released the track list for her upcoming album “The Pinkprint” set to drop on December 15. The album is now available for pre-order on Amazon, Target, Walmart and Best Buy websites.

The track list includes favorites such as “Only”, “Pills and Potions” and “Anaconda”. The album will also include recently released track “Bed of Lies” featuring Skylar Grey.

With a title like “The Pinkprint”, one can’t help but think this title with run as a series like Jay-Z did his Blueprint albums. One also can’t help but wonder if this album will give Nicki the boost she needs to be considered as a female rap legend.

Let’s be frank, if you’re not a die hard Nicki fan you probably don’t take her very seriously as an artist due to her costumes and animated personality. As an original barb, I think this album will give Nicki the ammunition she needs to continue to monopolize the female rap game and finally get the respect she deserves as an artist.

Who’s excited for December 15th!?
