(04.08.2015) Last week Jay-Z announced his new music streaming company TIDAL. It is suppose to be the thing that changes the history of music. While I support it in some ways, I don’t in other ways.

Lorde is a girl that you will most likely be hearing more about in the near future. Who is she? She is a very talented sixteen-year-old singer from New Zealand. She was signed by Universal Music at the age of 12 in New Zealand. She has since been developing as an artist and her music comes from a very real place and point-of-view. She is the very opposite of what many top-40 singers sing about. She even said she thinks that todays music isn’t relatable to people. The average people of the world don’t usually get to partake in the fame and excess that many artists such as Kanye West and Jay-Z sing and rap about.
Last night by Twitter was buzzing with the music video from Lorde’s “Royals” song. Lorde doesn’t really hold back on her beliefs of todays top-40 songs as she sings about how we’re never gonna be living that life or be royal like. What is so funny about this, is this song and her future release are probably going to push her into being able to have that life that she sings against. Hopefully Lorde is able to stay grounded and keep it real as her career and fame grows.
You can take a listen to “Royals” below. I like the original music video better, but I decided to post the US version because its on Vevo. Vevo is now influencing Billboard, so the more views she gets on this video will influence her airplay here in North America. The song right now is at #49 on the Billboard Hot 100, #2 on the Billboard US Alternative chart, and #5 on the Billboard Rock Chart.
Tell me in the comment section what you think about “Royals” and Lorde.
Saturday on SNL Maya Rudolph hosted “Saturday Night Live”. Typically when an SNL alumni host the show, the show is a good one. This was the case last saturday when Maya hosted. The monologue was funny and Maya and Amy Poehler did the “Bronx Beat” sketch which I frackin’ love! Maya was known for doing her Whitney Houston sketches, but those obviously did not show up saturday night. Maya Rudolph was looking rather pretty on saturday night. Girl can clean up.
My favorite sketch of the night was the Beyonce Baby sketch where Maya is seen playing Beyonce. The rest of the crew play Jay-Z and the train of celebrities that come to visit baby Blue Ivy Carter. My favorite celebrities that were portrayed were Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift. All the celebs were well done, but those two were the funniest and right on the money. Take a look at it below and tell me what you think?
This song has to be one of the sweetest songs that I have heard or seen a celebrity do for their newborn child. The lyrics are so sweet and at the end you can hear the recording of little Blue Ivy Carter being born and crying. I guess we can count this as her first song of her most likely future singing career. So sweet… She probably will be embarrassed by it while she is a little older, but still young. Once she gets older she will cherish it.
Like most of the world yesterday I was confused on whether or not Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby girl’s name was Ivy Blue or Blue Ivy. It is apparently Blue Ivy. I don’t feel bad for writing yesterday that the name was Ivy Blue because even E! and other news outlets had it wrong. They named her Ivy because of the number four(the symbol IV). Beyonce and Jay-Z were both born on a 4th, Beyonce and Jay-Z were married on a 4th, and Beyonce’s newest album is called “4”.
At least we have all of that confusion cleared up, right? Now can we see pictures?! Lol. We will give them some space, but I think we all would like to see pictures within the next month. You can go to the link below to read more on Beyonce’s family at the hospital and Beyonce and Jay-Z’s celeb friends tweeting and talking about little Blue.

January 7, 2012 will be Beyonce and Jay-Z’s babies birth date. I am so happy for them and excited to see what this little darling will look like. I was hoping they would have a girl. It is said that Jay-Z has been telling people their daughter’s name is Ivy Blue Carter. I say welcome, Ivy!
