Get Schooled On Social Media With Tallia Storm's 'Social Security'

Need Twitter and Instagram education? Tallia Storm is your girl. 

Tallia Storm knows a thing or two about proper social media protocol. Whether it’s when and how to place a hashtag or like an Instagram flick, she’s got the social networking thing on smash.

In her debut single "Social Security" off her four track #SocialSecurity EP, which is due on May 10, she attempts to educate us on our social media mishaps.

Over an infectious beat reminiscent of Kylie Minouge’s disco style dance tracks Tallia chants, “Don’t beg for a re-tweet/Don’t beg for a follow/like follow tweet tweet/It’s not always time.”

The 16-year-old Scottish-bred singer has been making waves across the pond since Elton John’s partner discovered her in a hotel restaurant in 2012 at just 13-years-old. And with co-signs from Sir Elton John himself and the likes of Drake, Tallia’s future seems pretty promising.

Take a listen to "Social Security" below and you can also pre-order her full #SocialSecurity EP.

Premiere: Aja Is Shaping Their Raps With Confident Candor On "I Ain't Left"

Sometimes you have to remind folks you're the s**t. This is heard throughout Aja's latest single, "I Aint' Left."

The track contains their reliable swaggy confident nature along with bits of dominating lyrics. Speaking to VIBE, Aja reveals the track is a response critic who has questioned their pretty successful career. "'I Ain't Left' is about people giving me negative feedback on things they know nothing about and saying I don't deserve to make my dreams come true as an artist," they said.

"A lot of people told me to write about my struggles as an up-and-coming musician who's creating a new blueprint for queer artists coming from reality TV, and this track is what came out of it."

A fan favorite from the ninth season of RuPaul's Drag Race and the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race All-Stars Aja captivated screens and unleashed their rap persona in 2017. A self-identified nonbinary queer artist and performer who's pronouns are "they/them," Aja has proved their lyrical abilities while going bar for bar with the sharpest talent in the industry like CupkakKe and Rico Nasty.

Currently, Aja is reading their next EP, ALL CAPS for Friday (June 28). The project is a follow up to their debut album BOX OFFICE. 

The Brooklyn native connects with fans, their struggles as it deals with race, gender and sexual identity, class, and sexuality. They have become an impactful figure in the LGBTQ+ community as well as an international role model.

Aja recently dominated the Wynwood Pride's LGBTQ music festival last weekend.

Some artists love to boast about their bars and nayhoos, but Aaron Aye truly has it all. The singer and rapper blend both talents with easy on his LP F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. which stands for "False Evidence Appearing Real," sees Aye get personal in his lyrics. In lead single"Roots," the artist highlights loss in many ways. From losing his mother to cancer and losing hope in his dreams, Aye gives out plenty of motivational vitamins to make it past your worries.

It's a recurring theme on F.E.A.R., which isn't a downer at all. Songs like "Over My Head" hand out valuable lessons while providing a groove only the 23-year-old can deliver. He's been compared to A-List talent like J. Cole and Drake for his honest storytelling, a factor that drifts in and out of popular music way too often.

With F.E.A.R., Aye speaks of peace and the importance of faith. Through the LP fans can hear how the L.A. artist overcame grief, depression and anxiety while building a positive sonic forcefield.

Make sure to give Aaron Aye a listen, he's more than worth it.
