Mya Releases Beauty and the Street Mixtape Vol. 1



Mya just released her first music project under her new label Planet 9, titled “Beauty and the Street Mixtape Vol. 1”.  It has a lot of new material and she has collaborations with the likes of Bun B and Slim Thug.  Now, I know you are say “Hey how does this fit into Soulified’s normal scope?” Well…. since a few artists are coming back on the scene after a long absence, I thought I would cover Mya’s return also.  Mya really hasn’t been absent from the music scene, because she released “Sugar & Spice” last year in Japan.  She left Motown and worked with Manhattan Records to release that album.

After researching for this post, I found some information about Mya.  That she is really business minded and has some great reasons for leaving Motown.  A lot of it is detailed in a great interview from RollingOut.

Below is her latest video with Bun B in her song “Show Me Something”  The mixtape is available from iTunes,  and Amazon.


Jay Leno Show w/ Jay-Z, Rihanna & Kenye West

Good morning. This story keeps developing. A previously scheduled appearance of Jay-Z, Rihanna, and Kenye West, on Jay Leno’s premiere show on NBC, it added more depth to the MTV’s VMA drama. With Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift’s first award acceptance, to Beyonce giving Taylor a chance to properly shine in her moment. It was eventful to say the least. Kanye wanted to take some time before the performance to discuss his actions and his feelings on that moment. Below is the video. Enjoy.

White House Correspondent Dinner Video

The President Of The United States

For something very different.  In case you missed Barrack Obama, The President Of the United States, at the White House Correspondent Dinner, here it is.  We are very lucky to have a president that has a great sense of humor.  He had some very good jokes, then the mic was turned over to Wanda Sykes.  That’s when the hard hitting humor started.  Both videos are iPhone/iPod ready MP4 format, so download and enjoy.
