Bibi Bourelly Shares Striking Video For "White House"

Singer-songwriter Bibi Bourelly continues to use her talented pen to spread a timely message. For her latest, the "Ballin" singer debuted the poignant video for "White House."

Images of the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center to footage of children detained in immigration facilities are depicted within the three-minute reel. The visual also puts into perspective the dire circumstances humans are currently living through and the future issues from the environment to politics that will alter the lives of generations to come. Bourelly also shared a mission statement behind the piece:

I am a girl.

A regular girl. I am not a pop star Or a politician. I am not a Straight A student. I am an artist. I try to tell the truth because My father taught me that lying hurts. Not only those around us , but ourselves. It hurts everyone. It jades our perspective and skews our principles. It confuses us and everyone around us. My father also taught me that when choosing to trust in or believe an individual you have to observe what they do before believing what they say. I look at the grown ups who are the representatives of our country and I don’t believe them. People like that never liked me. They never liked us. I know that because I’ve ran into them in encounters on the subway or the local community stores. They tell us to speak more like them and to stop writing poems. I’m a girl. I have never stolen anything. I am not a straight A student. I am a brown girl, an artist and a poet. I close my eyes sometimes and try to listen to the deepest part of my heart when things get scary or feel wrong to hear what it tells me like my father taught me to do and this is what came out.

In a previous interview with VIBE, Bourelly said one of her worries about being a creative in this industry is losing the ability to make tunes based on real-life issues.

"One of my biggest fears is that when I get to a certain level I will forget how to write about real life. I think that's what makes me an artist, the fact that I talk about the things that I experience. Music for me is an outlet," she said. "I feel things very intensely. Before I had the diction, the articulation to express what I felt I would create my music. The moment I begin to get a real understanding of diction and articulation, I begin to write about the things that were happening around me. It wasn't until people pointed it out to me that I was writing about the things that were happening around me that I realized it."

Janet Jackson To Be Inducted Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

Janet Jackson is among the many musicians who will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 2019 class.

Ms. Jackson, Radiohead, The Cure, Stevie Nicks, Roxy Music, Def Leppard, and the Zombies are the very talented musicians who will be honored at the 34th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The highly-coveted ceremony will be held on Mar. 29 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Jackson, whose career spans several decades, responded to the exciting news with a tweet. “We did it u guys,” she wrote with a purple heart. “Thank U for all your love and support. #RockHall2019.”

This has been a banner year for Jackson. Earlier this year, she performed at the 2018 Essence Festival, Billboard Music Awards, Panorama Music Festival, and the Global Citizens Festival. She also teamed up with Reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee for a new single, “Made For Now.”

“I'm deeply humbled and grateful for this award. I believe for all the challenges we live at a glorious moment in history,” she said during her Icon Award acceptance speech at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. “It's a moment at long last that's made it clear that we will no longer be controlled, manipulated or abused."

Congrats to all of the inductees.

We did it u guys 💜 Thank U for all your love and support. #RockHall2019 pic.twitter.com/1APrRJdmTv

Sir Elton John Covers Khalid's "Young Dumb And Broke"

Khalid has had the opportunity to cover songs from some legendary musicians like Tracy Chapman. Now, the tables have turned. Sir Elton John recently covered the Texan’s 2017 hit “Young Dumb & Broke.”

The “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” musician reworked Khalid’s American Teen track for the Spotify Singles series. In a statement, he praised the young musician’s growth, and he called the song “one of [his] favorites.” Khalid can be heard at the end of the Elton version singing along.

“I discovered Khalid’s music a few years ago, and have been a fan ever since,” Sir Elton wrote. “We finally met when I played his home town of El Paso last year. It’s a thrill to be a small part of any new artist’s journey, and it’s been wonderful to see his star continue to rise and rise. ‘Young Dumb & Broke’ is a fabulous song, one of my favorites, and I’m really pleased that he liked my cover enough to contribute vocals.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Sir Elton has praised members of the newer generation of music. His song “Rocket Man” is sampled in Young Thug’s On The Rvn EP. In the past, he’s sung Thugger’s praises, namely in a 2015 interview with Noisey, where he noted he enjoyed how he pushed the boundaries of hip-hop.
