No announcement, no PR, no marketing. Well, some marketing. But to the naked eye and usual fan, Beyonce created magic right before our eyes, releasing an album of 12 songs and 17 videos through her Instagram page.
Shocked fans and music lovers alike have been buzzing about the new release since it’s occurrence last night. Beyonce hasn’t stopped with the release though, she has also started to release new photos of herself to the media. Beyonce fans, this is your season.
No surprise in the awesome sounds. And definitely no shock in the people’s response.
Stay classy San Diego.

Jose James is so smooth that we are officially changing the word SMOOTH to Jose James.
(Example Sentence; Man, this wine is soooo Jose James)
Jose James is what you are missing out on if you have ever said you were tired of hearing the same ole, same ole. With such a rich voice, you won’t regret putting this man’s music on repeat. And fellas, it wouldn’t hurt to find out what he is talking about either. James’ word play is amazing, and the way he maneuvers through each song plays with the acoustic value of the music.
He has dropped his latest album, “No Beginning No End” within the last month, and it describes the album best. This album’s continuity is amazing, with distinct live instrumentation and sounds that can only be produced in the atmosphere of Soul.
Out of 5 stars, he receives 5 (A great listen from start to finish!)
Jose James’ sound (or should we say his approach reminds us most like) D’Angelo.
Be sure you check out the man, and the music!

Fluitity of album
The wrap up:
Amazing album. From start to finish. I was hesitant on if Kendrick would be able to live up to the anticipation and hype that was created around this effort, but he definitely delivered. Although there were a few tracks I had to let grow on me, the overall effort was a great one. I really think he took us to Compton, through the streets of Los Angeles and opened up his mind and world to the public. You can definitely hear his experiences through his word choice and delivery. Only downfall of the album was the placement of his tracks. I would have liked to see certain songs preceed others, but I can’t bicker too much about that.
Favorite tracks off the album were:
Black Boy Fly
The Recipe feat Dr. Dre
Bitch, Dant Kill My Vibe
Poetic Justice feat Drake
Hell… The whole thing.
Good effort Kendrick. Can’t wait for the next project.
