NEW VIDEO: Chris Brown – Hope You Do

Image result for chris brown   hope you do

Chris Brown dropped the video for Hope You Do. The track is featured on Brown’s eighth album Heartbreak On A Full Moon. The video embodies a black and white old school feel. He remakes Donell Jones – Where I Wanna Be with his chorus.

Chris Brown said in a interview with Complex:

I thought Heartbreak On a Full Moon was a depiction of what my soul wanted to say. It’s funny because we’re doing a double album. I’ve done so many records, but all of the records, to me, are personal favorites and I feel like it gets what I want to say across. It gives a vibe. You get nostalgia or you get a sense of individuality.

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.

(FULL INTERVIEW) BIANCA BONNIE TALKS HER MUSIC AND RELATIONSHIPS

DSC_6074-1-1

O: What made you want to pursue a career in the entertainment industry?
B: Well, music was always my passion, since I was a kid. It’s just something I wanted to do since I was young.
O: What part of the entertainment industry do you enjoy the most?
B: I actually like creating the music the most. Just writing it and being able to deliver it in the studio.
O: Do you have a preferred place you go to, in order to write your music?
B: When I’m on the train or traveling [on] Amtrak or the plane. Anytime I’m traveling or in the car or riding for long distance, I come up with songs quick. Sometimes when I’m in the shower [it’s just] random weird places I’ll think of the music.

O: How did you becoming apart of the Love and Hip-Hop cast come about?
B: They actually reached out to me in a DM, so I guess [when they do that] their casting. They reached out to cast me.
O: Did you enjoy being on the show? Would you do it again?
B: As of right now, I feel like I want to continue to stay with the network, with the brand. Eventually I’ll branch off and do my own thing.

O: Has your experience on the show been positive or negative?
B: I wouldn’t say it has been positive, I’ll just say its [had an impact]. The show is good for gaining attraction and that’s what I want to do because after ‘chicken little soup’ people didn’t really know where I [went] with my career. The show helps me gain more exposure. I’m still growing and building as an artist so [its] just a stepping stone for my next big move.
O: Would you recommend reality shows to individuals that may be interested in reality television? Do you think it’s a good platform?
B: I can’t tell people what a good platform for them will be, they would have to want to do that themselves. It was good for me because the show gets you millions of views and followers every Monday. That’s good for me because the way I brand myself the things I do outside of the show collectively adds to that, but it may not be good for everyone and their brand.
O: Who has inspired you through your journey with music?
B: I can’t say anyone inspired me but just the struggle and poverty from where I [grew up]. Just being from Harlem from New York in the hood that inspired me. I have family and friends that I do this for. Its not about me. I do this because its way out of where I’m from and its something I’m good at. [I can also make a lot of money].

O: Are there any news you would like to give your fans?
B: Yeah right now [10 plus and Cherry Lounge my albums are] out. Its available for streaming and downloading all over the world; worldwide distribution. I’m working on a new mixtape which should be dropping the end of April early may called “Queen of Harlem Vol. 1”. I’m on a web series, which is really big called “Respect Life”. Basically, I’m going to be dropping some visuals for my fans.
O: Do you believe that society should embrace the other forms of romantic relationships?
B: To each is own. Everyone should just live life and be happy and do whatever they feel like doing. You can’t knock someone for doing what they want to do. I feel everyone should [be in whatever type of] relationship they want. Your only on this earth for a short period of time.
O: What are your view on cheating?
B: I feel like cheating should absolutely not be accepted but if you get in a relationship and you already know, like some men get into a relationship knowing this woman has a man and some women get into relationships know a man has a woman. So, you already know what you’re getting into, but if you get into a relationship and you have communication and understanding that yall together. I think that unacceptable. If you want to cheat you should just be single.
O: What do you want your legacy to be?
B: I’m still growing and building. I’m still very young. I’m not sure what I want my legacy to be. I have to get married, have kids all that stuff. My husband will be apart of my legacy. It’s just so many things that I have to do, that I haven’t done yet that I don’t even know that question yet.
