The Fire of French Montana

BY: GURU JAY

The Fire of French Montana


Last night on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, French Montana performed Famous from his new album ‘Jungle Rules.’ He demonstrated his mastery of flow like a fire guzzler onstage with the world watching. As he spat fire, it reminded of a hypothetical Pitbull and Drake Rap battle. Moreover, the crowd went wild while the curvaceous belly dancers swayed from side to side in spectacular fashion and gorgeous garments.

I wish I could of been in the building at that time. It was that good. Nothing is better than live entertainment. Going to concerts and soaking up the atmosphere is priceless.

It was his first live TV performance of the new song; and, he did not disappoint fans. Like DJ Khaled, all French Montana does is win. How can you lose with good music on your side. Plus, all the ladies were into his groove.

Over the years, French Montana has made a big name for himself. He is Grammy nominated. Plus, he is platinum certified.

I can see songs from ‘Jungle Rules’ being included on a movie soundtrack. It’s only a matter of time before the movie industry gets its hands on this diamond. I’ve listened to the songs and the music is in a category of its own.

Checkout Famous. FrenchMontanaVevo released the music video today; and it is all that you expect it to be and more. The Moroccan-American represents his roots and does his native land of Morocco proud. The video shows clips of the beautiful countryside, city, and people.

Have you listened to French Montana’s latest album ‘Jungle Rules’ yet? What are you waiting for? It’s fire! ‘Jungle Rules’ is available on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Digital, Tidal and practically everywhere else they sell music. You have no excuse NOT to listen to awesome music, when there are so many options.

Why Electric Dreams Is Worth Binge-Watching

Why Electric Dreams Is Worth Binge-Watching

I highly recommend binge-watching Electric Dreams. You will thoroughly enjoy the Amazon Original by Phillip K. Dick. It is a very entertaining series from the start. The anthology is a collection of intriguing episodes sparking your imagination. This blog post will review the first episode called ‘Real Life.’

In episode 1, Anna Paquin’s character and Terrence Howard’s character share a virtual fantasy world together where they live out each other’s lives in ‘Electric Dreams.’ Anna Paquin is a lesbian policewoman and Terrance Howard is a Tech billionaire. They visual another world- one futuristic and the other modern day. Anna Paquin lives in the future, and Terrence Howard lives in 2012.

Through these virtual headsets and microchips they’re able to connect with each other. In other words, there are two worlds on a collision course. Unfortunately, in both worlds they suffer tragedies. Howard’s character loses his wife and Paquin’s character ultimately enters a coma.

It is not a coincidence that the two main characters share the same lover. The episode reveals many connections such as the same scenery. As the story unfolds, you’ll find familiar places and similar scenarios.

The setting takes place in futuristic and present day Chicago. It revolves around ‘real life’ and science. Technology is a major theme. Moreover, how technology connects us and divides us is explored.

The actors did an amazing job. Every detail was well thought out and the cinematography was incredible. Give credit to the director and producers.

Finally, the episode warns people about the pitfalls of virtual reality. On the one hand, virtual reality is good because it’s an escape mechanism. They call it a vacation. On the other hand, virtual reality is bad because it ultimately leads to disconnection.

Electric Dreams explores the dynamics of society in multiple ways. In the future, we have flying cars and holograms but less compassion. Still, in both worlds, we need more compassion.

The Weeknd Is the $92 Million Man

Lately, The Weeknd has been on my playlist.  I can’t stop listening to I Can’t Feel My Face. Who else feels me? Faced with a choice between the Weeknd and Bruno Mars… I’m going with the former, right now. Speaking of the ‘former,’ doesn’t the Starboy remind you of the artist formerly known as Prince?

The Weeknd lives life in the Hills. He lives life for the moment… the celebrity vibrantly celebrates life like DJ Khaled. Speaking of the DJ, I can’t wait for the Starboy to make a song with Khaled. I can hear it now… ~ Who are you to judge~

I often say that music is the common denominator. Me and you share the same tastes of music. That’s why you’re reading this blog right now. We can put aside our differences for a moment and discuss entertainment.

Entertainers come in all shapes and sizes, and the Weeknd is an entertainer of massive proportions. He travels around the globe and everybody knows his name. I recall taking a class with a girl who went to his concert the previous day. Although she wasn’t an entertainer, she came in a lovely shape and size if I do say so myself.

Can you believe the Weeknd made $92 million last year? He was working hard like Rihanna. Can you imagine the musician making music with Rihanna? The Weeknd ranks #6 on Forbes Celebrity 100.

He has 2 Grammys to his name, although I expect him to win more in the future. Taylor Swift is another one I would like to see the Weeknd collaborate with in the studio booth. The singers would make an awesome duet together.

Although Bruno Mars came back last year, the Weeknd is still strong. I’m going to a Weeknd concert very soon. You only live once, so live for the moment.

Why Taylor Swift Is the Face of Apple Music

Why Taylor Swift Is the Face of Apple Music

What Taylor Swift song gets you going? Shake It Off, Blank Space, You Belong with Me, and End Game are my favorites. Without question, Taylor Swift’s career has reached a superstardom level and Taylor Swift is a durable brand name.

I believe Taylor Swift is the face of Apple Music. Apple Music needs Taylor Swift’s sound like buttermilk pancakes need buttermilk. Doctors recommend not to skip a healthy breakfast. Gurus recommend not to skip a great Taylor Swift song.

I could listen to Taylor Swift all day long because she has so many hits. She is certified platinum every time she produces a new album. Moreover, she is rewarded for her talent. To date, she has won 10 Grammys.  

Whether you listen to Taylor on Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify or VEVO, nothing beats consuming her music. When the singer gets together with producers, they always have the fans on the back of their minds while making beats. Swifties love Taylor Swift because she is something special.
  
Taylor Swift released her End Game video two days ago. I saw it and was amazed. She and Ed Sheeran have good chemistry. Like Sheeran, Swift is one of the most exciting musicians in the world. I only wish she would make a song with Beyonce.

Taylor Swift is scheduled to perform at the Super Bowl for good reason. All eyes will be on her as she is sure to razzle and dazzle fans around the world. Football and Taylor Swift were made for each other. 

Taylor Swift has a reputation. She is one of the biggest names in music. Plus, she challenges herself to get better. Some music artists stay in the safe lane, but not Taylor. She jumped from country to pop music with purpose. 

It’s easy to see why Taylor Swift is the face of Apple Music. You must respect Taylor Swift because she gives respect. The Urban Legend may very well become a living legend.
