NEW VIDEO: Cardi B ft. Bad Buddy & J Balvin – I Like It

Cardi B unveiled a radiant new video for “I Like It,” her Invasion of Privacy collaboration with reggaeton star J Balvin and Latin trap master Bad Bunny.

The Eif Rivera-directed video was shot in Miami and finds Cardi, Bad Bunny and Balvin sauntering through city streets, taking a summer bash from the neighborhood to the nightclub. The clip is packed with stunning costumes, plenty of dancing and a few cheeky slice-of-life moments, like a woman tossing her ex’s clothes off the balcony.

The “I Like It” video arrives one week after Cardi B shared the Western-style video for “Be Careful.” That clip featured Cardi B marrying a man in a cowboy hat in a church, then later returning to that church with her husband in a casket.

“I Like It” has already cracked the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and marks Cardi B’s fifth Invasion of Privacy single, following “Be Careful,” “Bartier Cardi,” “Drip” and her breakout Number One, “Bodak Yellow.” Cardi B will play a handful of festivals this summer before embarking on a fall trek with Bruno Mars September 7th in Denver.

Getting To Know Tuesday Knight Interview

1. Where did the name Tuesday Knight come from?

So it's definitely not exciting as it sounds. I use to go by my government name Shane Jackson. I always thought it sounded plain and generic. I mean Jackson is the most common name ever. It doesn't sound too rapper-ish I guess. Before I put my first mixtape I needed a rap name that I was going to stick to. And I couldn't think of anything and it happened to be Tuesday night. I was in the studio with my manager and I was explaining what do you think about the name Tuesday Night? There's a bunch of metaphor ways I can play that name. He was like "yo that's kind of dope." So I just kept Tuesday Night. That's when I chose the right name.

2. Can you describe yourself in three words?

Creative, passionate, and humble.

3. What college did you attend and what was your major?

I graduated from Cornell University and I went The School of Hotel Administration. My degree is in Hotel Administration.

4. How long after working did you realize that you wanted to do music instead?

I was working him in Manhattan at Warner Brothers for 3 1/2 years straight out of college, after I graduated, December 31, 2016.

5. How long have you been writing and rapping?

For fun, I would say I started between 13 and 14 years old. But seriously tried to make it a career I would say, about two years ago.

6. Where did your inspiration for the album come from?

My recent album spoke about the transition from corporate to music. So definitely this album was straight pool of inspiration from my real life. I just want to share the thought process behind my decision. If anybody else is going through this and having to make a hard decision in life, just do what makes you happy and what inspires you. It's basically what the album is about.

7. Do you have a special place for your writing?

No, I never really write down my lyrics either. I just constantly think about my lyrics. Everything is in my head so I could be walking and I can see things. Like nature inspired me to [to write]. I can see something while driving my car and say I can make that a dope line. I'm just constantly fighting constantly thinking things that I can say at a later time throughout my career; where people would say that I'm smart because I went to school and be able to leave a memory. I used to remember everything that the teacher said. I never took notes or anything. I can come up with a rap in my head whenever. I don't know I just have a good memory.

8. Do you have an artist that inspires you? Who?

I always go back to Nas, just because that was my introduction to hip-hop. I was born in the early 90s and it was huge. I have two brothers and we was bumping his music. So I was really brought up on listening to Nas. I knew all of his tracks and I was like 5 or 6 years old. That's what inspired me to start especially my style is the way he told stories in his rhymes. Now is definitely the inspiration for me.

9. What's the difference between the corporate industry and the music industry?

The ability to be creative. Which was what was holding me back from falling in love with the corporate industry. You have a boss to tell you what to do and usually there's only one way to do it. I just tell you do it this way. With rap I can be creative, do things the way I want to do them and how I think they should be done.

10. Where do you see yourself in 5 and 10 years?

Five years from now I just want to be making decent amount of money and music so I don't need another job. I'm real humble I don't care about being a millionaire and all that other stuff. If I could make $120 grand off of writing music even ghostwriting for other people. I would be completely content. Ten years from now I will be 36, I hope to take the rent money which is like entry level money and start investing in other things. Have my own businesses and have a family fortune, to include my family and friends and make sure all our bodies are good.

11. What do you want your legacy to be?

I want my legacy to be, that I was a relatable. I was able to make people feel what I was saying. I just want people to be able to relate to my music. And help them get through certain situations in life through my music. That's what I want my legacy to be.

12. Is there anything that your fans should look forward to seeing from you in the near future?

I'm currently working on two separate mixtapes. 2 to 5 track EP’s. There's a day vibe and a night vibe. I've already started working on my next album but who knows how long that's going to take.

NEW MUSIC: BIG SEAN – NO MORE INTERVIEWS


Big Sean released a song yesterday called, “No More Interviews” that had the Internet going wild. In the song big Sean addresses all the rumors that’s going around on social media. He also goes into saying that individuals that read these sites, take what they say to be a fact without fact checking. He addressed multiple situations that his name is been brought up in. One of which was his supposed rival with, rapper Kid Cudi. What I got from what he said is that they never really had a problem but if they did it would have been because of miscommunication. He also points out that with a simple conversation whatever that disagreement was could be fixed.  
The conclusion of No More Interviews is that he’s no longer going to do interviews that asked him about his personal life. He wants all interviews to be strictly about music or any business venture that he may be apart of. I had to say I respect that, because a lot of times now interviewing don’t ask questions that they need to be asking. They’ll ask one or two questions about the music and then the rest are about the personal life or scandals or whatever may go to media. I do watch interview sometimes and think that if I was the person sitting there I would get up and walk out. Although I understand that sometimes you have to ask certain questions that are boiling up and people want to know but sometimes these outlets go to far. At the end of the day these artist, entertainers,actors and actresses are human, and they still have feelings.
I’m happy that he took the route he did to address some of the things that bothered him.
I remember when he came out with I don’t fuck with you, I was really disappointed because I didn’t expect him to address the situation in that way. Although I don’t know him, I have watched a lot of his interviews. When I saw this song yesterday, I was releaved because this is how I wanted him to address situations. 

Take a listen to the song, and tell me what you think.

Drake Talks About The Media in NEW Interview EVR Radio

drake-elliott-wilson

Drake makes it clear in his interview today, with Rap Radar’s Elliott Wilson at East Village Radio, that he is not a big fan of the media. He also talks about some of the stories in the media about him.

Catch the highlights below:

On why he doesn’t do a lot of media:
Media, it’s just all entrapment. I’m not in the entrapment game. I came up here today because we actually have rapport, we’re friends, and you’ve always shown me respect but everything else is entrapment. People just go up to radio, start talking too much and make mistakes.

On Chris Brown
For any media outlet that listens to this interview, don’t ask me sh-t about that man when I come up there. Leave that man alone and stop preying on his insecurities man. His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I’m more popping than him, and that at one point in life ,the woman that he loves fell into my lap and I did what a real n-gga would do and treated her with respect. So she’s not out there talking down on me. All of those things combined creates a n-gga that comes up to your radio station and is just gonna do dumb sh-t. But it shouldn’t be about tearing that man down, it shouldn’t be about wanting to see me and him tear each other down. We have an issue and it’s either gonna drag out, or maybe in ten years we’ll laugh about it over drinks, but let us solve that sh-t. It’s not me and Kendrick [Lamar], it’s not me and Hov, you’re not gonna get anything out of it. I don’t wanna hear that man rap, you know what I’m saying? Nobody wants to hear me rap against him, you’re not even going to get anything out of it. I just urge media to leave that sh-t alone.

What do people wanna see from it? You don’t wanna see two black men tearing each other down. I understand when it’s entertaining, when you feel that you might get some music out of it, but at the end of the day, nothing good can come of that situation, just leave that sh-t alone. That’s part of the reason why I don’t go up to radio. Sit up there and talk, talk, talk, I don’t wanna talk. People talk themselves into a mess. Playing my beat when he comes up there and try to get him to rap, c’mon man! That sh-t is like terrible.

I feel for him too. Every interview he does, they talk about me. It is what it is. I’m focused on this album and everything else that’s going on. I’m not thinking about that man…or that girl.

On being involved in beef and gossip
If it’s anything to do with me, if I ain’t say it [out of my mouth], chances are [I didn’t say it].  Their job is to create stories. It’s not like I’m in some anti-media space. I just hate when it fuels people’s days. Get out of the house. F-ck all that bullsh-t.  At the end of the day, we are just two guys and a girl. We are regular people too. You shouldn’t care that much.

On taking responsibility for his rhymes
Just realizing that when I get in that booth, not only is the microphone on, but the microphone is on. The world is listening. I think the situation the other day with the Rocko song is a wake up call for all of us. Rap is important. The world is listening. It’s a wake up call. If you are going to say something that is going to put you at risk, make sure it’s a message worth fighting for. Not to scrutinize Rick Ross, I know him very well, that’s my guy, by all means I don’t mean to speak on another man’s situation, but just for me, it clicked, like “Wow!” And watching [Tu]pac, he felt like that message was worth fighting for. In this day and age, he would have lost corporate sponsorships and he would have lost money, but he thought that message was worth fighting for.

On why he doesn’t do a lot of endorsement deals
We love saying “No.” That’s why we are still here and we are still exciting. Preserving the brand and not just jumping out there doing every single thing that’s offered to me for a million dollars. To me a million dollars isn’t worth the mystique that I still possess when I drop a record. I don’t want to be in your face all of the time doing bubble gum ads and ads for trash bags. I’m not just going to take the first million dollar check that you give me. I’ll make a million dollars somewhere else to preserve the integrity that I still have.

On if he and The Weeknd parted ways
I mean, not necessarily. OVO was OVO and will always be OVO. All we did was embrace someone that we felt was extremely talented from our city and instead of hating on it and rejecting it, we completely embraced it and that was a big part of why it is where it is now. I mean, people make their own decisions. He went on to do something that he felt was a great decision and more power to him. I talk to him all of the time and I look forward to what he has coming in the future. I wouldn’t call it a parting of ways, I just think people reach a point when they need to make decisions and whatever decisions they make, that’s on him. OVO was always three letters and it will always stay like that.

Listen To Full Interview Here!

I understand where Drake is coming from. Its horrible that the media always tries to stir up lies about these artist. They are people and do have feeling too. Like Drake said if there’s drama between two artist let them figure it out on their own.

Drake seems like he’s in a good place mentally. I’m proud of him and wish him all blessings! OnPointCeleb! MuaH! 🙂

OnPointCelebz Interviews Singer Tia Ferrera

OPC: What made you want to pursue a career in the music industry?

T: Wow! I grew up around music. My mom is a professional singer and most of my family members are in the music industry. From being very little I’ve always been around music. I fell in love with it at a very young age.(Laughing) I feel like there was no other way for me to go.

OPC: How long have you been singing? When did you discover you had the ability to sing?

T: I started off singing at my grandfathers church. He has a very very small church in San Diego California where I was born. Started singing there once he gave me my solo I was like oh yeah (Laughing). This is me, this is what I want to do. I don’t want to do anything else in life. I knew pretty early that, that was from watching music videos and all the people I admired, I knew very very early that it was something I wanted to do.

OPC: Who is your #1 inspiration?

T: Mariah Carey

OPC: Who would you love to work with in the industry?

T: Timbaland or Ryan Leslie

OPC: From what you’ve seen or heard, what makes a professional artist? An ideal superstar?

T: Someone who is very well rounded as far as their gift. Whether they have [tackled] the technical side as well as just being free enough to express themselves. There are people that have master both of those as well as being able to network and run a great business. It seems to me that those are the most successful in the entertainment industry. Their able to balance all of those different areas of their lives and stay on top even though its a lot. Its a lot to try and balance but from what I see the people that are very successful are able to balance all of that.

OPC: What has been your favorite part of your Journey so far?

T: I have to be really honest other people wouldn’t say they do it for the feed back [but that’s why I do it. I love when someone can relate to my music]. Its just a song in my head until I go in the studio and record it and its just a song until I preform it and its just a song until someone hears it. But if it actually means something to somebody else that the whole reason i do it.

OPC: What song have you gotten the most feed back on?

T: Its weird because for women its this song that I have called ‘Its Complicated’ and its specifically about how a relationship goes wrong and your like what the heck happen we were doing so well. And I got that from all the people on Facebook land that had a status that said its complicated. I started seeing peoples comments saying what does that mean. And not everyone wants to admit it but everyone has been in that part of their relationship where their like I don’t know if were still together or whats happening so I wrote a song about that. From women I get the most feedback about that. And then I have another song that we shot the video for and its called ‘Ladies Night’. For a very strange reason a lot of guys (laughing) like that song. Their like I know I’m not supposed to dance to I know its a song for women but I like that song. Its very opposite ends of the spectrum but I love it.

OPC: Do you have a special zone you get in when your writing?

T: I do have a special zone. It depends on what kind of song it is but I specifically try to take myself to a place that I’ve experienced. When writing a song or singing a song, what ever the subjects about I try to take myself to that place. So if its one of those sad songs I literally take myself to that bad, dark, not so good place. [I start] from there to make the emotion come out.

OPC: What do you want your legacy to be?

T: I hope that when its all send and done. When I’m old and grey and can’t do this anymore. I hope that what people just got from me is that I wasn’t afraid to go against the green and follow the dream that I’ve had since I was little. No matter what it cost me or what obstacles I’ve met. That’s what I stand for.

OnPointCelebz Interview with NEW ARTIST Kayla Dane

IMG_0788

OnPointCelebz interview with singer/songwriter Kayla Dane. We spoke with the artist to get to know a little more about her. Kayla was a sweetheart and very interesting. I see her going far in this industry. She is defiantly an OnPointCeleb. Below is our full interview with Kayla Dane.

OPC: What do you love most about music?

KD: Music is a way to [express] emotions and it’s a way [to] use my imagination and get out of the reality of the world. With music you can just take yourself to another place. It’s like an imaginary world for me and that’s what I think I like about music most. Whether it’s mine or listening to someone else’s it’s a way to get away from what’s going on right there. [Either] have fun or reminisce…its thought provoking so I would say it’s like an imaginary world.

OPC: Your new song fun in the world has been soaring though the web like wildfire. What does that song mean to you?

KD: That song means a lot to me. Really it just about in our society everyone is worried about gold, achieving, and success and a lot of times even at a young age we are really on a rat race and hustle and bustle. I don’t think people really take the time sit down and enjoy the simple things and have fun, I wanted to make a song that tells people to chill out and just have fun and I wanted to do it in a way that [didn’t sound like I was] preaching but to just make it fun. So really for me it was therapeutic because I have a lot of goals and a lot of dreams and even though I want to achieve all this, and I plan to, sometimes you just have to chill and have a little fun.

OPC: When did you discover you wanted to be a singer?

KD: Well I would say I knew this at 6 years old. I have been singing at church and school since I was about 6. (Laughing) I would always want to get up and the sing solos and they would try to get my sister to sing with me and she would stand behind me. I didn’t have a problem with being in the front and taking charge.

OPC: What would say your trademark is?

KD: Well I would say my trademark is and people always tend to notice and thing is really really cool are these star earrings tattooed. [I got them because] I can’t wear earrings. So I have two stars tattooed on my ear. Everyone who sees it says, ‘hey never seen anything like it’ and I’m like ‘oh okay cool’. So I think that has become my trademark. I’ve had it for the last two years. And it makes people really happy when they see it.

OPC: What artist do you enjoy listening right now?

KD: Nicki Minaj she is so dope and so talented. I’m into hip hop but she totally just opened up doors for artist who think outside the box and want to be different. She’s really sticking for women and we haven’t had that in a long time especially in the way that she is able to do it.

OPC: Would venture into the world of hip hop because I noticed you did a little rapping on your fun in the world track?

KD: I’m not opposed to it. (Laughing) I’m not opposed to it. When I did the rap on the song it was just [me playing around] having fun. I defiantly don’t have any experience in that, when I was in a group called ‘Bella’ there was a rapper I guess I learned [or whatever I did learn] I learned from her. I’m not opposed to it but I don’t have any plans to.
OPC: If you had the opportunity to do collaboration with anyone of your choice, who would it be?

KD: I would love to work with Fergie, I would like to work with Gwen Stefani, Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo. The list would be so long. I would want to work with Pharrell not with him just producing with him actually on the song as an artist. Kanye, Big Sean, [and Charmaine].

OPC: When you’re writing music where do you go to be in your zone?

KD: Normally when I’m writing for myself I’m alone totally by myself. Really [I begin to think] how can I be vulnerable and I try to relax not think about it and just see what comes out. I try not to put too much pressure on myself when I’m writing because I really just want to be as real and vulnerable as possible.

OPC: What can your fans look forward to in the near future?

KD: Yeah I’m defiantly going to be putting a video out for fun in the world which I’m really excited about. I will be dropping a mixtape soon hopefully before the year is out. I’m excited about that too. I’m working on some remixes for fun in the world. Those are the first three things and so much more after that.

OPC: What is something you would tell a kid out there that is trying to make their dream a reality?

KD: Basically you can’t get anywhere without hard work. So would tell them don’t mistake what you see on TV and think it’s easy. You have to work really hard you have to research the industry that you’re going in. You need to make sure you know the ins and outs of it, and make sure you take a moment and relax to enjoy the simple stuff in the meantime because you can go crazy (laughs).
