A part of me hates that I really like this song. Like most people who watched their relationship mature, and eventually devolve, I don’t care to see Domo and Crissy continue to rip each other to shreds in the public eye, but the music lover in me can acknowledge the way that Domo elevated her…

Music Choice: 6lack

I have absolutely loved 6lack since his first album. Not only did he present a flawless debut project, but with each single has managed to deliver and perform to the same quality.
