After the debut of her latest BET sitcom Zoe Ever After, Brandy felt the need to kill us all with the surprise release of her new song “Beggin and Pleadin.” If this song is any representation of 2016, we’re gonna be in for an amazing year of music. Brandy is SANGING her face off on this track. Quite frankly, this might be her best vocal performance yet. Her growls in combination with the aggressive lyrics and the “retro-meets-trap” production courtesy of Pop (A Philly resident!) and Oak make us very excited about Brandy’s next album. We’re definitely “begging and pleading” for more! (See what we did there.) Check out the song here and tweet us your thoughts at @AndersonStPhl.

Look who’s back in action! Freeway, who scared us all with the announcement of his kidney disease a couple of months ago, just released a brand new mixtape entitled Fear of a Free Planet. The mixtape includes features fromStyles P and Memphis Bleek and production from Don Cannon, Merc Beatz, and the legendary J. Dilla. Click here to check it out.

2015 may be over but the #BlackLivesMatters fight still rages on. The fight may have it’s new theme song courtesy of local singer-songwriterSuzann Christine. Suzann’s newest single “Where Did The Love Go” pays homage to the lives lost in the past years from police brutality and reminds us to “choose to love.” Download “Where Did The Love Go” for FREE here and check out the video.
