Funny, because I usually associate hangovers with the ideologies of “regret”, “dry mouth” and “the need to vomit”, but maybe for the first time in my life I have a new one; “inspiration”.

It dawned on me today, in my time of reflection (lying in bed paralytic), that if I want to succeed and achieve everything I set out to as a kid, far more work needs to be put in. A culmination of a week long chain of thoughts that has led me to believe that I’ve made the transition from artist-person to just artist, but now I’m at the bottom of a brand-new food chain and have to make my way up with a delicate balance of sheer passion and tactical thinking. I worked hard before, as hard as an artist-person could work but that ain’t enough really. Time to step up – something like that Drake line ” ’cause when all of my closest friends out partying, I’m just here making all of the music that they party to”.

I hope you can come on this journey with me.

I would like to review this properly but it would ruin all of the surprises, so all I’m going to say is the strings, drums and special guests = incredible. Rihanna’s vocals aren’t really at the expected level though, but in fairness her voice sounds like it’s feeling the FX of the Grammys, Brits and NBA all in the same week.

Imagine: if the FA Cup or Champions League final had a show like this.

PS, if you don’t watch until the end, you are going to miss out BIG TIME.

“You can try your best to let someone go because you don’t make that intellectual connection, but  somehow still fall to the powers of physical attraction..”. That’s the description on the Youtube video, and it pretty much sums up the track. I’m sure many of you have been in that position. I wrote this based partly on personal experience, but there are some fictional ideas in there too. Overall though, it’s probably a fair reflection of how I feel about relationships right now.

Chris Brown brings together an all star team for the highly anticipated remix of his song Deuces. The track features Drake, T.I., Kanye, Fabolous and Andre 3000 (in that order). Fresh out the kitchen, just came out today.

In all honesty, I’m not feeling it at all. Transitions are horrible, and they removed the strong chorus that was in the original.

Free stream and download of my version of Drake’s Over. Better late than never.
