Video Review: ‘They Don’t Love You No More (Remix)’

remy

Remy is officially in her video since her release from prison and it’s a DJ Khaled production, of course. I posted that she had jumped on his track immediately after her release. The song is clearly all about Remy with DJ Khaled moving around and French doing his hook. Other than that all they do is promote Birthday Cake 2 white wine. DJ Khaled also throws in his headphones, B&O, the black & gold editions.

The rest of the video has Remy i three looks. There’s the intro look has a Yankees jacket with matching cropped sweats, peep toe heels and a white tee. Top that off with the backwards baseball cap, hot pink lip, curly hair,  some chains, bamboo earrings and that’s the Remy look. Second look is a leather ensemble. She has on a bandana kimono, leather dress, converse, high socks, straight hair with her signature side bang, a gold chain, oversized earrings, and a red lip. Then there’s an underground scene where she wears another leather ensemble this time a high low shirt with 3D gems, shorts, a two-tone lip (black and green), and of course the big earrings.

Overall the video was nothing spectacular, but it’s great to see Remy back in her element. Although she’s not signed to anyone just yet word is she has a mixtape, I’m Around, dropping as soon as next week.

Check out the video below:

NEW MUSIC — French Montana x Remy Ma, ‘MEGADEATH’

remy-frenchKhlaed might’ve been the first one to get Remy on a track since her release from prison, but she’s back with another We The Best member as she teams with French Montana. The track ‘MEGADEATH features Remy, French, Jadakiss and production by Swizz Beatz. I could definitely hear this being a radio smash and I really like it.

chris-brown-september-16As summer is coming to a close, the release dates for Fall albums are being released. Chris Brown has just announced (via Instagram) that his long-awaited album, X, will be released September 16th. It will feature ‘Loyal’ (featuring Tyga & Lil Wayne) and his latest single ‘New Flame’ (featuring Usher & Rick Ross).

Breezy’s good friend and G.O.O.D. Music leading lady, Teyana Taylor, will finally be releasing her debut album. It will be titled, VII, and she tweeted the meaning of the album.

S/O to @DefJamRecords believing in my visions & trusting me creatively! Everything is falling into place. #VII #YearofCompletion #Oct.21st

@TEYANATAYLOR

Speaking of Def Jam, Trinidad James tweeted that he had been dropped from the label.

I should tell y’all I got dropped by the label. My album is now free. If u hear ur beat or verse on it I hope you want dap cuz i got no money.

@TrinidadJamesGG

Trinidad Jams is known best for his gold certified track, ‘All Gold Everything’. He never released a debut album, only 2 mixtapes under his belt, Don’t Be S.A.F.E. and 10 PC Mild. The tweet has since been deleted and he’s still under the Artists Archive on the Def Jam site. Who knows.

As for other albums set to be released in the fall, Lenny Kravitz will be releasing his 10th studio album, Strut, September 23rd. Take a listen to his single, ‘Sex’, below:

Set to be released the same day as Lenny Kravitz album is Tony Bennet & Lady Gaga’s joint album, Cheek to Cheek. It will feature a compilation of jazz covers ‘It Don’t Mean a Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)’, ‘Sophisticated Lady’, ‘Lush Life’, and more. Check out ‘Anything Goes’ below:

UntitledTo round off the week, aside from Bey and Nicki dropping the ‘Flawless [Remix]’, Remy Ma has been released from prison. WELCOME HOME REMY! Straight out the gate she has gone and teamed up with DJ Khaled for a remix of ‘They Don’t Love You No More’. The track is ok, I personally don’t like the original. While Remy is a great rapper in her own right, being that she’s been locked up for as long as she has she needed to hit the streets harder. There’s a buzz around her and she needs to be putting out music weekly, hell why not daily. Of course there’s this beef that is being created between her and Nicki Minaj and I would just prefer for them to go bar for bar on a track. Remy stated in an interview with Angie Martinez (Power 105.1) that there was no beef. She also said in that interview that she would be doing reality TV. No surprise she’s slated to appear on the newest season of LHHNY. CLICK HERE to listen to the track.

Until next time…
