Monday is looking according to “The Plan” just as DaniLeigh intended. Since emerging into the spotlight Dani has stayed undeniable herself. From her epic dance moves to consistent growth in music she is disrupting the industry, and making sure your remember her name. With features like YG, YBN Nahmir, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby, and even her brother Bill$ she is a force to be reckoned with. “The Plan” stays consistent with Dani’s bouncy yet focused personality that she depicts to her fans through her socials. She takes us through a nostalgic journey with 90’s influence of R&B, while keeping relevance with innovative Hip Hop sounds.

DaniLeigh, is expressing a side we never heard before as she slows things down for us on, “Do It To Me”, “Family Only”, and “Blue Chips”. She embraces her melodic voice, and never disappoints when she puts her words in motion for us to listen to. DaniLeigh is here to inspire and speak to us while embracing her Spanish speaking roots with, “Yo No Se”. DaniLions, are in for a treat from beginning to close of an undeniable plan she is sharing with the world.

Moody Monday: on the rise with Jessie Reyez

 "Violent, soul. Tarantino." Are the three words Jessie Reyes uses when describing her aesthetic. As you Listen to, "Kiddo," Reyez's EP released last year, you feel the anger and angst in her voice. 

The EP starts with "F**k It" which is a song with back and forth dialogue with a lover, which she so well captured by changing the sound of her voice as if there was a real conversation taking place. The simple production has serious focus on the diversity of range in Jessie Reyes's voice.

The song then leads into "Shutter Island" which takes you to the rabbit hole of emotions as a reaction to relationship turmoil. But, leave it to Reyez to really give you an uplifting message after all the angst. "Blue Ribbon" ft. Tim Suby, gives us a dance beat on her "I know who I am" anthem. She tells those with "poison...[to] keep that shit the fuck over there, please" while she focuses on family, and day ones on her team. Which goes into her softer tone in "figures" which was her breakout single, that you can listen to below.

To give the album a nice close she ends with more personality on "Gatekeeper". It encompasses the struggle and reality of oppression that the music industry has on females. It is a disturbing unspoken truth, but so relevant to share on her musical journey - specially on her EP perfectly titled, "Kiddo". Which ends with a recording of her parents wishing her a great birthday.

To kindly close the album, Jessie Reyez ends with my favorite uplifting song, "Great One" that shares the importance of community through family and team. You can hear the gratitude in her voice, as well as hard work and perseverance as she aims for "everything". 

Listen to the Album below, and embrace her powerful voice. Also make sure to listen to Body Count, a new single released this weekend! Tell us what you think in a comment below.

Cardi B hits us with a banger this weekend and it's an "Invasion of Privacy" full of hot collaborations and raw rhymes to make you want to play the album on repeat. People all over are praising Cardi B's debut Album, for she just proved to everyone she is here to stay on the top of the billboards. 

Cardi begins her album with a hard hit knowns as, "Get up 10"  which reveals insight into her life while addressing her hustle unapologetically. To follow up, we are given a dose of flex with "Drip" ft Migos, "Bickenhead", and of course "Bodak Yellow"! The album is a story of self-empowerment, hustle, and growth that comes at us with an I beat all odds sort of mindset.  

She keeps it so real throughout, and brings fusions of Cardi into the mix from trap queen to latina fierce with her J. Balvin and Bad Bunny hit, "I Like It". The loudmouth is taking over music with exactly what trap music needed, a reigning Femme Fatale.  

This album reads like a book and takes you through the highs and lows of coming into the spotlight gaining a lavish lifestyle while still dealing with the backlash of criticism. 

Yet she reminds the haters that “My little 15 minutes lasted long as hell, huh?” with my personal favorite track, "I Do" ft SZA to wrap up the album. Enjoy the track here. Let us know what you think in a comment below.

Heard of elsewhere yet? Well, you should it's the hottest warehouse dance club in Brooklyn. On Friday, PopGun Presents curated a perfect feel-good line up to kick off the weekend. The Golden Pony took the stage to start the night and was followed by the infamous Dances With White Girls to bring you an eclectic dance party in preparation for "Self Help"

Upon entering the room was filled with Dirtybird fans eagerly awaiting the Walker & Royce experience. Lazers illuminated the room while the partygoers shuffled throughout the dance floor and swayed to the rhythm of the mix master's beat.

Soyyo Magazine had an exclusive look at the Walker & Royce pre-performance, green room ritual.  Gavin Royce and Sam Walker both humbly hosted over a dozen of their closest friends as they threw back some beers and mezcal in preparation for their on-stage appearance. The gents calmly indulged in conversation with fellow producers, label managers, and fans like myself. 

Upon their stage appearance, fans happily danced to the recognized tunes from the latest album, and of course the crowd favorite "Take Me to Your Leader" featuring fellow producer - Dances With White Girls.
