All Of The Lights...

Kanye West always has something new up his sleeve. This is a small section from his short film, Runaway. It has been said that this film idea has been influenced by film noir, a type of crime drama that emerged in the early '40s. I know there are a number of underlying meanings in this video but I have yet to figure out all of them..if anyone has any input please feel free to comment.This video clip titled All of the Lights featuring Rihanna, paints an interesting picture; the colors used are bright and the fireworks are just a nice bonus.

I took these photos in Porto, Portugal while studying abroad this summer.  Being from New York, I'm used to seeing graffiti on every street I pass but I was a little surprised to see so much of it in the few European cities I traveled to.  I'm a fan of most graffiti, I think it adds color to a sometimes gray city landscape.

My first firework is a true New York talent. Born and raised in the heart of the city, Bridget Kelly( nicknamed BK or BeeKay) brings a refreshing edge to the world of R&B . She has been trying to find her place in the music biz ever since she began attending Laguardia High School for Performing Arts, a well-known school located in Manhattan.  BK regularly performed at open mic spots throughout the city and even used a subway platform as her stage.  In 2008, she got her big break.  Roc Nation, a fairly new record label created by hip-hop phenom, Jay-Z, gave BK her first recording deal. 

Now 23, BK is known as the first lady of Roc Nation and this is only the beginning.  Compared to the many young R&B stars who have been climbing the charts, I think BK adds soul and a slightly different sound to her music. Her most public performance yet was playing the part of fill-in for Alicia Keys during a couple of Jay-Z's concerts in September '09.  BK performed AK's hook on "Empire State of Mind." As a huge AK fan, I must say, she did her proud.  Her style and tone somewhat resemble that of Alicia Keys.  Below is a clip of BK's performance with Jay-Z:

Bridget Kelly is currently recording her first album, no due date is set yet.  As I tried to find some of her original work on youtube, I came across this song titled "Stuck", I can't stop listening to it.  I'm usually a sucker for love songs but this track is different and very powerful. I posted the song below.
