Mali Music Debuts The Job Experience on BET’ 106 and Park

So big things are going on over at the Mali Music camp! Today he premiered the music video for his critically acclaimed single The Job Experience, now available for purchase on Itunes. The single will be on his sophomore album Mali is, due to be released January 2012. Here is a video of the video since the stupid BET video isn’t working.

In case you’re wondering what all the hype is about, let me bring you up to speed. Mali Music is a singer, songwriter and producer. Basically he’s a triple threat. While Mali has a very distinctive style, her reminds me of Tonex without the furs and the Village People costumes lol. What puts Mali in a class by himself is his ability to tell a story with a poetic flow that has not been done in gospel music, aka he’s not wack.  His lyrical composition musical production will have you scratching your head wondering how did he do that?  Mali Music’s music is slap your mama or someone else’s mama good! (jk I would never slap my mom and you shouldn’t either!)

Mali Music is well known in the gospel community for hits like Yahweh and Avayable off his first album 2econd  Coming. When Mali performed The Job Experience at this year’ BET Awards: Music Matters showcase, the music world was abuzz wondering who is this kid? Check out the performance here.

Since his appearance on BET everyone wants a piece of the kid now Akon has signed him to his KonLive Management company.

Everything was going well, and then this!!! Signed with Akon!!! WHAT!  To top it off click here to read what Mali said about being bigger than gospel! Tell me this guy is joking. I don’t know maybe I’m over reacting, you tell me.


Jessica Reedy: From the Heart

Posted in Album Reviews with tags , , , , on October 3, 2011 by holychick

For my BET Sunday Best peeps, here is a post that is sure to please. I was a bit hesitant to post anything concerning the show because this past season was the first time I’ve ever watch the show (gasps). So truthfully I had no clue who Jessica Reedy was. However, recently, I kept seeing pics of this beautiful girl popping up all over gospel sites. Since I love beautiful things (no homo) and I like to be nosey well informed, I did some research on Ms. Reedy.  Turns out that Jessica is the runner-up of Sunday Best Season 2 and the child can SANG! From what I gather, Jessica is truly a lovely person, very real and very humble (she got my vote). Her long-awaited album From the Heart dropped September 27.  The staff over at DaGospelTruth did an excellent full album review that you can check here

It’s always good to see young people making the decision to devote their lives and talents to God. Jessica Reedy has a mainstream look and would have been accepted as a secular artist (on the real a lot of “gospel” artists are only in the genre because they will stick out like a sore thumb elsewhere. I’m just saying), but she chose to do it big for God and I am definitely consigning that! So to my fellow Christians lets support our sister as she spreads the message of God’s love to the world. There ain’t a worthier cause than that!
