Tyrese Links With Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa For 'Dumb Sh*t'

Tyrese returns with a new track and a new visual.

Only good things can come when Tyrese manages to get in the studio. And if you ever thought Tyrese was going to give his musical talent a rest - think again.

The soulful crooner teamed up with his West coast brother Snoop Dogg and Wiz khalifa for his recent Hype Williams-esque visual, 'Dumb Sh*t.' The Furious 7 star brings an old school vibe with this project, taking us back to “Bonita Applebum” flows. As for the track, it speaks on something many have done time and time again: make illogical mistakes, then find a way to make up for them.

“This song ain’t for saints,” says Tyrese, “It’s for real people who have made mistakes in relationships and did some dumb shit.”

In the Matt Alonzo-directed video, the “Sweet Lady” singer and his pearly whites confess to dumb ‘ish while Uncle Snoop two-steps in front of his chromed-out blue Cadillac. Wiz Khalifa also makes a cameo and crashes guitars while swinging his purple locs.

“Director Matt Alonzo and I had a ball making it. It’s spring and as we warm up, I wanted to drop this dumb sh*t to get some energy going.”

Bridget Kelly Showcases The Pitfalls Of Summer Love On 'The Great Escape'

Through beautiful summer days at the park coupled with late night tryst, Bridget Kelly is taking us on a trip of the sunny highs and cloudy lows of a summer romance gone wrong in The Great Escape.

The four-minute short film chronicles a love story between Bridget and her leading man Scott Machado. At first, they trade flirty eye glances in a park, and then later meet at a party which then segues into the bedroom. Yet towards the end of the film, she finds out he’s been creeping with another girl.

The Great Escape is made from music off Kelly’s latest five-track EP. The Grammy-award winning artist has continually made it a point to release new summer filled music. Back in 2016, she released a new EP, Summer of 17.  And in spite of The Great Escape being about a love gone wrong, Kelly isn't really pressed about relationships in her own life. She just craves something natural and organic.

"I love being in love. However, if something doesn’t work out or happen for me in the timeframe that I want it to, I’ve learned to just let it go.," she told XO NECOLE. " I now take a less intense approach to relationships because I want it to feel natural; I want it to be a normal progression."

Watch The Great Escape above.
