H.E.R | New EP
H.E.R’s new EP is on loop (and has been for the past week). She recently dropped the video for her latest single Could’ve Been’ featuring Bryson Tiller and we’re LOVING every ounce of it.
The video was directed by Lacey Duke (a female Director!) and Duke’s served us nothing less than cinematic EXCELLENCE! It's so rare to see a nice clean video which flows with the production and lyrical content, to the point where it actually enhances the song itself. It ticks all our boxes.

Must Watch! | Red Table Talk | Ft. Jane Elliott
Jane Elliott is a racial diversity educator and living legend (Google her), Jada Pinkett and Co. brought her in at the tail end of a tough topic - race relations between black and white women, and Aunty Jane WENT IN before she even sat down lol! We love her because her voice and her work has been such a blessing.

Sadly, this episode felt like the intro of a 3-part series, because they literally only scratched the surface. Watch it yourself right here and feel free to hit the reply button to let us know your thoughts. Nevertheless, we're happy they got this topic kicked-off.

A parting message
"But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
~ John 4:23-24

Until next Wednesday, have a good one!
