I have an HBG approved list of music videos that make me feel good. They usually involve beautiful black folks doin regular stuff. That’s right…bein extra does very little for me. It pains me that we don’t have quality programming at our finger tips. So I create playlists of things to keep at the ready when my soul needs it most.
I say all that to share that I am adding the following video to said list. I wanna spend my money in stores like the only in this video. All colorful, chic and edgy. I also wanna hang out in studios where versions of old gap band songs get belted out like this too.
Since we’re here and all I thought I would throw in one more cover version of “Yearning for your love”. It is hands down the BEST one by far. Stokley Williams rolls in all sweet and seductive like and steals the show. No disrespect meant to Elzhi, I love this album and his skills are formidable. But yo….Mint Condition y’all! If you’re not a hip hop fan (shame on you) you can skip to about 3 minutes in for the get down.
