#OBSESSED: Unreleased Beyonce Bops, NYC Girl Slay & Black Owned Tee Brands!

The Queen must have known we were a little disappointed that she didn't release any solo music this year, so instead she gave us this unreleased gem from her self-titled "BEYONCE" album.
Although the song was set to be released in 2013, doesn't it sound like it belongs somewhere between "Dangerously In Love" and "B-DAY"?

The song, originally titled "Wake Up", was co-produced by both Beyonce and Pharrell. After scrapping the song for her own album the song was then said to be on Pharrells next album. Now the song has been revamped and is featured on Ariana Grandes' new "Sweetner" album. Hearing both versions, Ariana definitely made the song her own, but you can't unhear Beyonces voice when that hook comes around.
Take a listen.


Let me tell you how the girls from my city do!
As I've stated before, I am very excited about the current climate of female rap. The rise of independent artists has paved the way for so much creativity and unique perspective. I am particularly impressed by the girls from my beloved NYC. Trendsetters by nature, its seems like my girls are setting the standard. 
I could go on all day, so let me get to the point. 
First things first, my girls slay across the board. Guess who bagged a campaign with my favorite designer Betsey Johnson...

Congratulations! Princess Nokia on being the face of Betsey Johnsons Fall 2018 campaign.
The collection is giving me classic Betsey vibes and I am so here for it.

“Betsey is a icon to many NYC club kids and fashion weirdos. The plaid, the dresses, the somersault at the end of every season’s show. Can’t tell me I’m not a fan, darling,” - Princess Nokia

This collection is so 80s/90s pop-arty punk rebel and I couldn't think of a better spokesperson. Take a look at the lookbook below.

Yet another NYC rapstress doing the damn thing. 
Our girl Miss JP has released the first visual from her third album "JP3". Directed by another talented New York native, director/dj/designer VA$TIE, the visual for "All of You' is a perfect blend of sensual soft glam mixed with JP's natural raunchy Brooklyn-esque.

Hello! My name is Adara and I am addicted to mini skirts and raunchy crop tees.
I confess the secret to my style is no secret at all, I love attention. What better way to turn a few heads then displaying some risque ( yet totally relatable ) texts or a raunchy (yet totally cute) graphic across two G cups?
As you've seen in past posts, I heavily support Black Owned business, from food, art, hair products, subscriptions etc. but my absolute favorite way to support is through fashion. 
Check out these cute tops from some dope brands and click the links to shop.
"from the hood with love"
ShopChrisChanel has to be my most favorite at the moment.  In addition to tees, the shop also offers a range of unique accessories to compliment your look.
Make sure to follow them on Instagram, they have bomb sales on the regular.
Shoutout to hood girls all across the world.

OMG guys! Do you remember those graphic Dollz from the early 2000's? 
They came in every shade with any hairstyle and what seemed like and unlimited wardrobe.
 Oh the memories of spending hours on the library computer customizing my dollz and glitter graphics for MySpace.

 At this time the brand only offers tees, but they are SUPER affordable.
Make sure to follow the designer on Instagram, her style will send you on a nostalgia trip so worth it.

This is not the first time FOC has been featured on this blog, and I'm sure this wont be the last.
Flaws of Couture has been doing the damn thing for some years now and their only getting better. Last year I attended their Brooklyn pop-up shop where I purchased the two tops you see here.
I still have my eye on this one. 
FOC offers tees, sweat sets and just released their first swimsuit collection this Summer.
Make sure to follow the designer on Instagram, homegirl slays EVERYTHING she puts on.
