Moody Monday: Amalia Watty

Amalia Watty

It was a late night and I wasn't feeling the greatest so I went to SoundCloud to find something that would lift my spirits. It was after a deep hole of searching for New York musicians and feel-good tunes that I stumbled upon Amalia Watty's "Cry Sometimes". 

To my surprise, a beautiful Carribean soul started singing the exact words I needed to hear. Her voice was uplifting with positive versus taking you on a journey to watch the colorful sunset on the sorrows of yesterday while making your way through a field of sunflowers guiding you through the road ahead. 

Amalia Watty's voice so strongly captivates the listener and has been described as "one of those voices you don't forget". Watty's classy, cool and collected spirit makes you want to dance alongside her as she sings and roams through New York City. Her voice, similar to Corrine Bailey Rae with a sprinkle of Amy Winehouse, soulful and powerful, reaches the deepest parts of the listener through her magnified vocals made to touch your heart. 

Listen to her song and watch the music video here: 

Watch Tinashe glow on her newest release, "No Drama" featuring Offset

Tinashe and Offset

Kentucky Native, Tinashe releases the "No Drama" music video in collaboration with Offset. Both stars are captured in scenes flashing from Tinashe moving alongside her crew of dancers, an underground box match, and glimpses of Offset in a dimly lit room with chains falling from the ceiling to add to the anticipation of the bars he is about to drop. 

The video shows clips of Tinashe dancing and moving through an abandoned warehouse, while fiercely gracing the halls with her presence and top of the line look. Her look consists of diamond-encrusted cuffs while wearing a mesh top with the gently placed teardrop crystals. At one point of the flashing scene, we get a glimpse of Lukas Abbat, which explains the queen like fit Tinashe proudly struts through throughout her empowering anthem, "No Drama".   Watch the video yourself below.
