Since winter I’ve been obsessed with The Weeknd’s music! My favorite of his 2011 efforts (he had 3 mixtapes in 2011) was House of Balloons, so I was happy to see he just dropped a video for the sexy single Wicked Games, from that album! Check out the video above, I like how it was shot, the scene transitions are stellar, they already gave me ideas for an upcoming shoot. Also I’ve been shooting a lot of black and white videos lately, so I’m particularly feeling it for that reason. Lastly if you’ve checked out any of the single art, the video keeps with the aesthetic that The Weeknd has put out there from the beginning. I’ve posted it before, and I’ll say it again….I LOVE those pics!
Make sure to look out for The Weeknd’s upcoming debut album Trilogy in the next couple weeks.
I do have a question though, if I own all 3 mixtapes and the new album only has 3 new songs, and the rest are from the mixtapes…do I got to buy the album? lol
I will, I will…he’s that good. His music is sexy! The Weeknd is necessary in the current R&B scene.
Check out my 1st stint at creating a monthly playlist of some of my favorites and songs that have an effect on my day in some way. This one is a few days longer than July, cause well, I started on June 27th. The playlist is a little all over the place, but for anyone who knows me, or has heard my computer on shuffle knows, that’s me, random and all over the place.
There’s a range of tunes, so listen to July’s music as I develop August’s, and remember you can check out the current playlist at the top right.

I’m addicted to The mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl! It’s a web series that I was told about in the late Summer by my coworker homie, who actually knows creator, Issa Rae. He told me he thought I’d like it (probably because of my own awkwardness), and that I should check it out. At the […]
Yelawolf I’ve decided to add a new category to What Gets You Movin, and that would be ‘Hotness’! Since I was about 14, I’ve had these mini crushes on people, a new person almost every other week. Nothing serious, just someone or sometimes a subject/entity that heightens my radar for the moment. I’m always sharing […]
When did you realize you weren’t white? Last week I got thrown into a conversation with someone about having to have ‘the talk,’ the you’re not white talk, with their 5 year-old nephew. I’ve never had ‘that talk,’ and from what I understand many kids of color don’t have that conversation, but it led to […]
Marc Hom I like celebrity portrait photographers like Mark Seliger, but I’ve fallen in love with another Marc, Marc Hom. He’s a portrait photographer, particularly of celebrities, who captures a very natural element in his subjects and has a clean aesthetic in his images. I want my work to gain this feel, i’m officially inspired! […]
