These Are The Best Songs of the Week

Published

on

So much music released this week across the expansive land of hip-hop. While it’s cool to see all of this amazing music, we must not forget that, in Detroit, some equally captivating tunes came out as well. This list highlights some of the most amazing tunes to come out of the D this week and why we love them so much. Check them out below.

“Fastest Route” by the Get A Bag Boyz

Whenever AllStar Jr and the “Get A Bag Boyz come together, there’s always some magical, street anthem in the perimeter. This time it’s “Fastest Route,” a hard-hitting jam that brings out that brutal energy we often keep hidden from plain view. There’s nothing particularly groundbreaking about it; the song just sounds flat out amazing. Props to everyone involved for crafting tight, lyrical excerpts for the street dealers in all of us.

 

“PUSSYWANTWAR” by Clooner, Okir, and Scumbag Fred

Believe it or not, Clooner’s latest track “PUSSYWANTWAR” is so funny that it’s actually good. The Detroit native takes a trolling approach, a la Lil B, to his latest, rapping, just barely. In fact, much of it is murky – the way that he slurs words together makes them nearly incomprehensible. The guest features are equally boggling. The entire thing, honestly is a weird affair. Maybe it’s not so much good as it is memorable. That might be the correct terminology to use.

 

“So Lit” by Armilee

Armilee surprised us with the super sensual hit “So Lit.” Her singing is spot on and sounds a little sharper than the soothing sounds that we often hear on today’s radio. That’s okay – they’re often muddled together. But Armilee has a sex appeal level that is even apparent before watching her sing in her video. After seeing the video, she’s definitely become one of our favorite artists.

 

 

“Dey Was Hatin” by B. Rose

The comments under this video on YouTube are horrendous. They hate it, but love it. So it’s equally as depressing when they can pick a definite side. It’s a shame because “Dey Was Hatin” is a banger. The creative new single from B. Rose makes use of some extremely loud piano production to spin a creative tale of love lost for his old homies. They’ve become the opps now, and the way that B. Rose tells the story, you can see why it’s fuck them.

Co-Founder of Haute Agency, Chealse Sophia, Aims To Build An Empire Within The Talent And Model Industry

Published

on

By

Toronto’s Very Own Chealse Sophia is the beauty-preneur creative behind your favorite brand. She has shattered the glass ceiling and revolutionized what it means to be a woman in a patriarchal entertainment industry.

It’s 2022, and this generation is moving different –the masculinity complex stigma is being challenged by empowered, devoted and self-driven women that are pushing the needle, trailblazing for the upcoming generations, and leading the charge for the hard-working women that hold contrary opinion, a voice of change that suits the world we live in today, and that value independence, and gender impartiality.

From Toronto, Ontario Canada – a woman currently grinding through her teeth to champion women’s resurgence in the corporate world, more so – the creative executive world –that is generally considered by a majority to be just music, film, sports & entertainment – and very much predominantly male and chauvinist in the boardrooms – is Chealse Sophia Howell, a 31-year old modeling executive that is building an Empire, a creative and healthy space for women to feel empowered, and equity to men alike.

Chealse is the founder & CEO of eponymous skincare product company SOPHIA, and the founder of talent agency Haute Agency, both of which have been making leaps in the creative industry. 

For Haute Agency, the company began in 2014 after a heaven-sent intuition sparked in Chealse’s mind that she could offer more to the more business, management, creative and branding side of the modeling industry. The company she founded at 23 years old has worked with multinational corporations such as Cover Girl, Amazon, OVO, New Balance, Pandora, Hello Canada, New Era, but not limited to. 

About six months ago, having been a model and in front of the camera before, Chealse would know a thing or two about what self-care & image essentially encompasses. The SOPHIA brand she says is about venturing into the cosmetics world, and later fashion. 

SOPHIA is a dream come true itself and it was only launched less than six months ago. In these 6 months we have gone viral multiple times on TikTok, sold out twice on our website and sold out on Amazon in the first 30 days of being listed, and have had a tone of organic support from big influencers” she chimes in vehemently.

Currently, Haute Agency is a 360 talent agency that was unearthed from her sheer determination to apply herself in vast areas of the modeling industry other than the actual performance aspect of it.

Haute Agency originally launched in 2014 as a model and talent agency, but I saw how social media was taking over this industry, so I quickly transitioned Haute into a full brand development agency where companies come to us to turn their brand into an empire” she explains.

While most of the population was muddled over the pandemic lockdown, this young artist saw a golden opportunity to capitalize on his free time and pursue his passion for music. In the past two years, Gusto did an incredible job tapping into the global audience through his art. Now, he has established a stable fanbase that can’t seem to get enough of his unique flow. 

On January 28th, Gusto released his latest track, “Frozen Heart,” ft. ZayZayy. This artist went the extra mile to top the success of his last single, “Pray for Me.” The new track by Gusto focuses primarily on the impact of life experiences on a person. He mentions that betrayals from close friends, loss of love, and loved ones’ death can leave lasting scars on a person’s heart. 

“Music is therapeutic for me,” mentions Gusto. “Being able to get my thoughts out through music and knowing people can relate to the things I think keeps inspired me to continue. All my life experiences continue to shape my music. As I go through different situations and learn things about life, I put that into my music.”

While developing himself as an artist and sharing his musical journey with the fans, Gusto aims to collaborate with African artists to promote his culture. He believes that a man should stay true to his roots and take life challenges head-on to achieve greatness. For Gusto, music is about connecting with other people and sharing his piece. 

The track “Frozen Heart” is available across all platforms for listeners to enjoy. Gusto is also working on new projects to bring to the fans later this year. To learn more about this blessed artist, visit his Instagram at @godsgiftgus13.

This new project brings a whole vibe to the listeners as Jimmy Bishop & ZachTheHero underscore their evolution as artists. “So Far So Good” focuses primarily on elevation and appreciating life for all its blessings. These artists went the extra mile to bring meaningful and relatable tracks to the fans. It is undoubtedly the perfect follow-up after the massive success of their last project, “The Ark.”

“We have to be grateful for where we are right now and continue to get better every day,” explains ZachTheHero. “The journey is challenging, but as long as we keep God first and focus on what’s important, that’s all that matters. If you really love and firmly believe in something strong enough, nothing can stop you from doing it.”

This message is truly inspirational and delivers hope to listeners struggling with some lows in their lives. While there are always negative aspects to every situation, it is impossible to grow when people are ungrateful for the blessings. So, these artists show their appreciation through this project and thank God for all the ups and the downs.

By listening to the first few tracks in the “So Far So Good” album, it is clear that this project was produced from a place of contentment. They recognize that their current success is just the beginning of their music careers and aim to be counted among legendary artists like Kanye West, Travis Scott, and Jay-Z.

After the overwhelming response from the fans, Jimmie Bishop and ZachTheHero have started working on more projects to bring to the audience later this year. Meanwhile, listeners can enjoy the “So Far So Good” album on all platforms.
