Track Tuesday: Tonight (Best You Ever Had)

If you only need one reason to go see Think Like a Man, go for Kevin Hart – the man is the funniest and hardest working comedian in the game! If you need more motivation, go for Meagan Good o_O. One thing you will notice though (minor spoiler alert!) is that everytime something really cheesy and romantic happens, the same dope track plays in the background. So today’s Track Tuesday not only gives you a new tune to jam to, but also solves that riddle for you if you saw the film but couldn’t find the song.

Of course John Legend would the featured track artist. His joint “Tonight” starts off with softly, and then the bass DROPS. And so do the panties, because the beats + John crooning definitely make this a set-the-mood song, albeit one that makes me run montage-style down Hollywood Boulevard with the wind blowing in my face, sleek suit jacket flying open, before taking off and flying to some tropical island that also conveniently has a really sleek club where the women are beautiful and the drinks are good and John Legend happens to be playing there that night and guesswhatsongheopenswithyesitsTONIGHT!


Ahem. So um yeah, definitely feeling it.

Dance Influence Music

Music…Wednesday? Come on, it’s late!

Last music post I covered Miguel, an upcoming new star, but one that is definitely firmly entrenched in the music spotlight. Today, I want to mention someone that has gained wide renown in a different field, and is now making waves in music. Meet Victor Kim. Dance fans recognize him from his days on Quest Crew, America’s Best Dance Crew Season 3 Champions. Known for his intricate footwork and acrobatic freezes, Victor is also a talented singer and musician, garnering a huge following on Youtube with his covers of popular songs such as Travie McCoy’s Billionaire, Katy Perry’s Firework, and Mike Posner’s Please Don’t Go. He’s already pretty huge on the West Coast, so I’m hoping this blog post helps his music reach new ears here on the East Coast.

He’s living the dream! Dancing, singing, drawing, and a degree from UC-Irvine in Economics…talk about inspiration (for Alex at least). As my good friend Aaron Chen said, “I’ve never been able to make the distinction between my passions and my career.” Neither, it seems, is Victor. All the more reason we should support someone like him – a true artist, someone who loves to learn and share, both a master and student of his crafts. He might not be right for mainstream America, but he’s definitely worth listening to and following…if I had to guess he puts a lot more time into his song covers than some of the cookie-cutter artists today put into their entire albums.

Sorry for the brevity of the blog post, but I really need to adjust my sleep cycle back to Eastern Standard time…3:20AM whatttt? Plus, Victor’s music sends a much more powerful message than my words do.
