The word is in: this past weekend Erykah Badu and Jill Scott gave us the best Verzuz Instagram Live battle so far. The two goddesses took fans on a 3-hour ride through their catalogs while trading stories and complementing each-other. And they did it all with virtually zero technical issues! Check out the playlist
of every song the pair played.
The hip-hop community is mourning the sudden death of Andre Harrell
, who passed away at the age of 59. As the founder of influential label Uptown Records he is credited for bridging the worlds of hip-hop and R&B and giving Sean Combs his first career break. We also remember legendary soul and R&B singer Betty Wright
who passed away this weekend from cancer at the age of 66.
Before you digest the rest of issue 26 we highly recommend watching Kehalni’s
latest music video
, an interview
with SoundCloud CEO Kerry Trainor, and if you’re looking for a new playlist, peep this one
curated by Beyonce herself.
