Beyonce-Birthday

Here Are Seven Reasons Why Beyonce's Birthday Should Be A National Holiday

As I'm sure you're all aware today is Beyonce's 33rd birthday and for someone who's been living just as long as Jesus, she sho' nuff has put in that work!

When I woke up this morning, it felt wrong to do anything else other than dive head first into Queen Bey's extensive musical catalogue or watch all her videos and then I got to thinking. With all that Beyonce has done and contributed to music, fashion and entertainment, why isn't Sept. 4th a national holiday? If anyone deserves a national of recognition, it's definitely Bey. For those who disagree (and I don't know why you would) here are seven reasons why Sept. 4 should officially be deemed Bey Day.

1-She's More Than An Entertainer

I'm not sure when it happened, or during what album, but Beyonce catapulted from just being a superstar a long time ago. Mrs. Knowles-Carter is an inspiration because she's worked tirelessly to get to where she is and for that she deserves your respect.

2-You Will Always Do The "Single Ladies" Dance...Always!

I don't care if its the year 3097, when the DJ starts playing "Single Ladies" you and your girls will gather in a circle and do your best version of the choreography. The "Single Ladies" dance bring girls together. It's a time for womanhood, fun, lots of laughs and it makes women feel sexy. How can any of that not be a good thing?

3-Her Work Ethic Is Crazy

I sometimes think Beyonce is secretly a Jamaican with her TREE jobs, and if we're being honest, Bey wears many many hats. She's proven that nothing can replace hard work and if you're willing to do the work, than you too can achieve your own greatness.

4-She's A Feminist

Spare me the think pieces on why Beyonce isn't a good role model for feminism. Beyonce is the biggest and arguable one of the most successful entertainers in the world. As a woman to proudly go on record and tell the world that she's in total support of equality and women's rights is not only huge but admirable. It also helps spread the importance of feminism to people who may not know what it means. Educating the masses is just another job Beyonce does flawlessly.

5-She's Proof You Can Have It All

She's got the career. The successful husband. The adorable baby girl. The awesome clothes. A supportive family, an awesome-sauce little sister and adoring fans. While I'm sure Bey's life get hectic, crazy and demanding, at the end of the day on top of all the accolades, she still has what really counts: Family.

6-The Beyhive Will Come For Your Life

Don't you dare even fix your mouth to try and say anything negative about Beyonce, because honey chile if you do! Hide your wife. Hide your kids. Just run, because all fifty-leben of 'em will find you and hunt you down. Disrespecting Beyonce WILL NOT be tolerated.

7- Beyonce Is A Down To Earth Lady

Despite all the awards, all the trophies, and all the accolades, Beyonce is just a down-to-earth girl from Texas who just happens to be Queen of the galaxy. So, remind me again, why isn't Beyonce's Birthday a national holiday?

H.E.R. Brings All-Star Medley To Tiny Desk Set

Grammy-nominated singer H.E.R. appeared on NPR's "Tiny Desk" set on Dec. 12, to deliver a 4-piece-medley from her last four projects.

Tucked neatly behind her dark sunglasses, the songstress began her set strapped to a mustard yellow guitar with a host of back-up musicians accompanying the 21-year-old on her first solo journey with "Tiny Desk." She previously appeared on the performance series in June 2018 alongside collaborator Daniel Caesar to bring their single "Best Part" to life.

The singer began with "Going (Interlude)," a low-tempo song ushering a heavy-hearted feel into the 18-minute-performance. Keeping with the melancholy vibes planted by the first single, Gabriella Wilson – best known by her three-letter-moniker –  delivered a stunning rendition of "Feel A Way." With two-final transitions, the singer-songwriter concluded her act with "Focus," a throw back from the 2017 EP that gained her worldwide recognition, H.E.R. Volume 1.

Switching from strings to keys, Wilson sat peacefully before a keyboard playing the melody she crafted for the crowd favorite. Chaperoning the performance to a close, Wilson and her background singers played a vocal game of tag as the band jazzed up the slow beats until the set officially wrapped.

Watch as H.E.R. rocks the "Tiny Desk" set in the video above.

In addition to the “Money” rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardi’s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine what shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Usher Releases "Peace Sign" Video Off Of 'A' Project

Given Monday's (Dec. 10) debate about who's the king of R&B, one of the names that steadily popped up in the conversation has stepped onto the scene. In a visual promotion for his A soundscape, Usher released the video for "Peace Sign" alongside producer Zaytoven.

Previously, the pair hit the studio for an eight-track project that pays respect to their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was surprise-released in October and effortlessly fuses ATL's aura on the soundscape. Now, the "Peace Sign" video puts that decision into cinematic motion.

"Atlanta offers a certain attitude and a sauce that I can't explain, and it is a little bit in 'No Limit,' it is a little bit in 'TNT.' I'm literally talking sh*t, man," he said in an interview with The Fader. "I'm popping sh*t that I haven't popped, like really ever. And that's what being in the moment creates. When you have months and months to think about it and you begin to analyze all the people who you need to think of and what you want this entire project to work out, you'll lose certain elements of your spontaneity an incredible culture that just happens in the moment. I didn't give that space. I really was honest with the feelings, I was honest with the conversation and I was really in the moment. And I thank Zay for that."
