The recent Brisbane concert took place at the Maxx Watts venue, which allowed a close knit enough stage environment to enjoy a non-distant concert experience vibe.
In reverse order, the event’s finale featured RnB singer Lloyd, performing his hit tracks ‘’Dedication to My Ex’’, ‘’Bedrock’’, “‘Get It Shawty’’, ‘’Lay It Down’’). Lloyd introduced his brand new ‘’Tru’’ EP with an emotional dialogue of his journey away from the music limelight for the past few years on his acoustic guitar. Lloyd has evidently declared his come back returning with an honest account of his temporary withdrawal from music.

Prior to Lloyd’s performance, RnB group’s “Next” most active member and singer and songwriter “RL”, performed mega anthem Too Close’’, ‘’Wifey’’ and ‘’Butta Love’’ as well as tracks he co-created such as Jaheim’s, “Just In Case’’. Consistently engaging in collaborations and solo tours around the world, RL will also be joining “Next” on their US tour later this year.
 
Melodic R&B singer Eric Bellinger’s set was an epic performance of diverse sounds, from captivating acoustic ballads to his trademark club bangers.  The “Focused on You’’, ‘’I Don’t Want Her’’, and ‘’Valet’’ songwriter is also a credited writer for artists Chris Brown, Trey Songz and Usher.
 
In addition, Grammy nominated artist J Holiday (‘’Bed’’, ‘’Suffocate’’, ‘’Guilty Conscience’’) part took in the lineup, no doubtingly performing his serenading ballads dedicated to the ladies. J Holiday also performed his new material since the release of his last album, ‘’Guilty Conscience’’ in 2014.
 

Last, but first, the show was introduced by flawless vocalist and support act Xy Latu, who has been a solid RnB pioneer, singer, songwriter, and producer in the Australian music scene. Accompanied by Jesse-T (the Voice), rapper Mazuradi and Nesi Love, these support acts landed the stage with their talented presence and kicked off the night. These local entertainers are warranted acts to look out for in the Australian music market.

 
Look out for the next Men of RnB tour, presenting a night of non-stop hits and RnB anthems.

Brandy Norwood is back, with a brand new sound

Brandy Norwood
Brandy live in London

Singer, songwriter Brandy Norwood radiated an all woman confidence on Tuesday night at the O2 Indigo, London with her Slayana World Tour, in reference to her nickname as well as her own label Slayana Records.
 
She presented fans with a secure and anticipated selection of a tracks for approximately 1.25hrs, including What About Us, Full Moon, Sitting Up In My Room, I Wanna Be Down and others in quick progressions.
 
Throughout the set, Brandy expressed herself with a fearless yet humble performance as she kept an energetic momentum, engaging fans with slick choreography and effortless struts across the stage accompanied by two male dancing backing vocalists.
 
She ensured to honour her late friend Whitney Houston by, in her own words ‘attempting to sing’ How Will I know, I Wanna Dance With Somebody and Exhale. Brandy pulled off sweet and edgy versions of Whitney’s hits with her seasoned honeyed husk vocals.
 
Following her exit, she returned to the stage dressed as in all black funeral attire with her latest release ‘Beggin and Pleadin’, a personal song inspired by her recent heartbreak, pouring out her heart with lyrics….
 
“Damn boy, why you make it so hard?Brandy HDJ Music1
Stop putting your foot on my heart
I know I did my wrong, I know I did my dirt
Didn’t know how bad I would hurt
Told you, walk out that door, and you can keep your last name
Now I’m down on my knees, it’s a shame
I’m begging and pleading
Begging and pleading, hoping and wishing for a change
Told you, walk out that door, and you can keep your last name
Now I’m down on my knees, it’s a shame
Good God almighty”
 
We can expect her upcoming album will be filled with much more powerful emotion, introducing a fiery brand new and liberated Brandy!.

Beyoncés Formation tour: Outside the Box

Formation 1Beyonce’s Formation London concert opened with an epic musical introduction, intensified with distorted transitions of images projected on a 20-metre high, gigantic rotating LED video-screen block. Artists such as Drake and Rihanna have also recently used the trendy concept in their music video’s “This is what you came for” and “Hotline bling”, dancing inside the box. However, Beyoncé spent the majority of her concert ‘outside the box’ (obviously for audience visibility).
The superstar appeared in an all black leotard with a large round hat, triggering a mighty roar from the crowd upon her arrival.
Dazzling costumes and matching themes resonated throughout, from black, white to gold and glittering bodysuits.
Supported by an all female band and dancers, Queen Bey didn’t disappoint to exhibit her signature dance routines. The band was tight and Beyoncé’s drummer Venzella Joy Williams ensured the show kept an upbeat tempo with a track like vibe. Vocally, Mrs. Carter never failed to hit her notes for over 2 hours, along with her outstanding backing vocalists The Mama’s.
Beyonce communicated her maturity, growth and experience in this presentation. From becoming a wife and mother and the challenges thereof, to emerging to embrace her roots and freedom.
It was a powerful message of overcoming through the hurt, anger and emotions alternatively leading to conscious forgiveness, all in the process of making metaphorical lemonade.
Audience experience varied from different parts of the stadium. Starting from the farthest and highest part of the Wembley stadium, the sound quality was distorted and unfortunately failed to project clear sound without echo. Luckily, the visuals made up for the sound loss as the large screens and clever camerawork provided a live view of its entirety. Without these crucial screens, Beyoncé and her dancers looked ant-size to the eye. From the front (mid level) the sound quality improved and won as our best spot. The ground floor also brought the action to life without delay, although the beauty in the visual effects were limited as the screens towered meter’s above and being so close made it difficult to capture it all.
Surprisingly an encore didn’t appear to be an option as strict timings were met with the concert starting and finishing promptly.
The Set list consisted of a 37 song list dipping in and out of new and old tracks:

Formation 2Formation, Sorry, Bow Down / Tom Ford, Run the World (Girls), Mine, Baby Boy, Hold Up, Countdown, Me, Myself and I, Runnin (Naughty Boy), All Night, Don’t Hurt Yourself, Ring the Alarm, Diva, Flawless (Remix), Feeling Myself, Yoncé, 7/11, Drunk in Love, Rocket, Daddy Lessons, Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It), Purple Rain (Prince cover), Crazy in Love/Bootylicious, Naughty Girl, Party, Blow / Nasty Girl, Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics cover), Sweet Dreams (Bey’s song), Freedom, Survivor, End of Time/Grown Woman, Halo

All in all, it was a high profile concert that reached expectations. With Beyoncé in creative control, how can you be anything less than impressed?. The Destiny’s Child member gave it her all!

Bravo to Beyoncé and team!
