We have waited for the most talked about female emcee out of NY and now she is here. From the ever changing planet of Brooklyn is 22 year old Chelsea Reject and her new mixtape titled, CMPLX is getting HOT ratings so far. Project features production by Rami B, Dougy, Kxngs and more delivering nothing but straight lyrics. She told HNHH, ” CMPLX is all about self-discovery and experimentation. Music and life are interchangeable to me so I had to experience life in order to really start discovering myself musically. This project will give you insight into “the reject” and into my existence as a whole. CMPLX is for the dreamers and those searching for forever like me.” We caught her show in BK not to long ago and hope to catch up with an interview soon.

I just heard this Australian singer/songwriter via our StackorStarve Instagram while doing some social promotions. At Female Flow we give everyone a chance (a listen) which is one of the codes we work by. You just never know who you will find while exploring online. From the looks of her online presence she is just getting started with her music but her single, “Love & Psycho” which is available for download on iTunes is a pop track about mixing her relationship. Love can make you a little crazy, right? Mel Smith has been writing since she was as young as 11 years old as well as tackling some covers and we look forward to hearing her original material. Check her out and let us know what you think? @FemaleFlowMusic & follow her on Facebook!
Just around 5 days ago Justina debuted her new video “That Ring” which is a ballad over a beautiful piano melody giving you raw audio into just how talented and diverse she is. Relationships aren’t easy and marriage isn’t always right for some couples even though we may truly love another. This latest song is a heartfelt confession to her significant other that she is not willing to say yes to. Watch now and follow @JustinaMusic as she comes off tour and prepares for the new year.
Bronx born Levina Lye states, “Writing for me is my way of expressing all of the things that are sometimes difficult to say, it’s my way of venting but creatively, it’s how I keep my sanity.” Her latest single “Fade Away” is a prime example as the song carries you into a space that most humans can relate to. We all want to escape in one way or another from common stresses to tragedies there is always a reason to get away from it all. Music is such a healing and therapeutic thing. She stands out by being herself, “I don’t aspire to be like anyone else. I represent everyone who is unafraid to be human and make mistakes. It takes courage to remain true to yourself, especially dealing with the judgment of others. Through my words, I tell my fans that they are not alone in this struggle.” She has landed placement on sites such as MTVu, CNN iReport, Industry Cosign, DJVlad.com and Urban Magazine.

Just fell in love with this the first minute and a half… Skratch Bastid & The Gaff killed this! It’s all blends of mid-60’s & 70’s female funk, soul and R&b breaks with cuts, scratches & edits all by Canada‘s in demand DJs, Skratch Bastid & The Gaff. Recorded between July 2010 & June 2012 this is something you can play anywhere, anytime and with anyone. If you want to know what your parents listened to or for some of you your grandparents this is IT but with a plop of cool whip on top. With known to some unknown to others such talented female singers like Wendy Rene, Ruby Andrews, Camille Yarborough & Nina Simone.
