I fondly remember meeting Ra-Re Valverde in London back in 2008 – at the time PinBoard was still a fledging blog and Miss Valverde blessed us with some time for an interview. We had a great chat covering just about everything – music, life, relationships, the future and more – if you haven’t already, take a dive into our archives and read the interview.
…But back to the subject at hand – Ra-Re sent over her brand new video for a new track called “Because” – a stirring, haunting track featuring Valverde’s distinguishable vocals. I re-visit her debut album frequently, simply because I adore her voice so much – this track is a departure from what is featured on A Beautiful Mess – it’s a good departure, I’m loving this.
Peace, Love & Ra-Re Valverde

This is kinda cute – Common interviews Queen Latifah in 60 Seconds, asking random questions like “investigate a creepy sound or hell nah” lol. These two have a great chemistry, cool to see two Hip Hop greats getting along and having so much fun together. I think I may check out their new movie “Just Wright” – may.
Peace, Love, Common & Queen Latifah

Rap-Up TV goes behind the scenes of Kelly Rowland’s “Commander” video where she discusses the concept behind the video and some of the looks she’s going for. Rowland’s new single, produced by Satan himself David Guetta is currently generating a lot of buzz online with pretty much everyone reacting positively to it.
…I’m definitely happy that Kelly is getting the kudos she needs and while I was definitely one of the sceptic’s impressed with the new single, I still can’t get behind this euro-pop/dance sound she’s going for. I like the single, but would I ever buy it? Nope. Would I buy an album like it? Nope. Kelly sounds great on “Commander”, no doubt, but there’s absolutely no denying she sounds a billion times better on an R&B track. I pray someone does an R&B/Hip Hop remix of this track – now that would be fire.
Peace, Love & Kelly Rowland
