I recently came across these beautiful shots of my favorite singer, Erykah Badu, for Oyster Magazine. Nabil Elderkin, an extremely talented director/photographer, is responsible for these brilliant photos. I am especially taken by the first photo; the use of shadow & color is incredible. To read her interview in the magazine, click here.
I’ve been listening to Sometimes nonstop, lately. How wonderful is this song?
It's one of those tracks I will never get tired of.

Soulful crooner Jesse Boykins III recently teamed up with Amsterdam-based composer/sound designer Full Crate to create these 2 beautiful works of art. Both songs beautifully layer smooth, thoughtful love lyrics over electronic beats. In addition, I just had to add another song of Jesse Boykins III’s that has been out for a few months now but I never got around to posting. It’s absolutely lovely, extremely ethereal, and will most likely make you zone out (which makes the title of the song quite appropriate). Please enjoy Zoner by Jesse Boykins III.
One of my favorite lyricists, Moruf, recently released a beautiful track entitled Jasmine complete with an incredible video. I’ve got too much respect for Moruf, he consistently puts out quality music. What more could someone ask for? If you aren’t familiar with this artist, check out the interview I did with him by clicking here.
Andreya Triana is a gem that I came across recently (such a shame I got hip to her so late, she’s been making really great music for years!) I absolutely love her voice. Her album Lost Where I Belong is definitely worth a few minutes of your time so make sure you look it up! Please enjoy 2 of my favorite tracks from her: The Keeper (by a producer named Bonobo, Andreya is the featured singer) & Lost Where I Belong.
UK-based singer Szjerdene released an EP entitled Patchwork a few weeks ago. The EP houses 4 beautifully written & sung tracks which perfectly display Szjerdene’s talents; her voice is nothing short of amazing. I love the raspiness of it. My 2 favorite tracks can be found beneath the photo of her and you can click here to listen to the other 2.

Hello! I hope that April has been treating everyone well so far. Today's She's Got That Good Good feature is a lovely young lady named Nneka Salmon from Brooklyn, NY. Menswear inspired pieces have long been found in the closets of well-dressed women everywhere, especially in more recent times. I must say, I absolutely love the look of a crisp-collared shirt and a blazer on a gal. It’s classic. And classic is exactly the word I would use to describe Nneka's impeccable, menswear-inspired style. In addition to being extremely well-dressed, Nneka is also an incredible budding photographer (the link to her website can be found at the bottom of this post). Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to..
