[New Music Tuesday] SYLEENA JOHNSON Keeps Soul Alive w/ CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy

Yes, this R&B Diva is back and better than ever! There’s something distinctively rich about Syleena Johnson’s voice. You can tell, this thing she does with these notes are truly God’s gift. I had a chance to chat with the soul crooner last month for her private listening party, held in LA and was blown away by the passionate conviction of

CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy.

Chapter 6: Couples Therapy

Stemming from communication battles in her own marriage, Syleena took to the pen and pad to express the hardships and rewards of being in a committed relationship.

“My husband and I recently realized we have some communication issues…so we took to therapy last year around September, and then just recently they asked us to do Marriage Bootcamp on WeTV, so we just filmed that which was amazing for our marriage.” via AllHipHop.com. 

On the album, you’ll find a track called ‘Silence’, which is a relationship record. It’s a plea from a woman ‘s perspective, asking how to salvage it? With lyrics beginning the track…“There’s so much noise in this silence…” Mirroring the pain in the relationship.

in, “Perfectly Worthless”, Syleena takes on a character who contemplates murder and suicide. Here the couple had been together since college.  She got pregnant and gave birth to a still born . The couple’s relationship struggled because of the devastation. They decide to go see a therapist and the unthinkable happens…The husband ends up cheating with the therapist and has a baby with her…You can see the story unfold in the video above.  “It was real Kettle One, straight vodka. I really wanted to be in this character.”, says Syleena.

Don’t get me wrong now, Chapter 6: Couples Therapy has some sexy, sultry bangas too. How else do you think you’re going to keep that bond growing strong 🙂

“…I like little nasty songs…it comes from growing up with Prince.” The diva mentions during the right before the playback…OKAAAY!

With song like “My Love”and “Boom”, this is just in time for booed up season!!!

+“No Beginners”, featuring Willie Taylor from Day 26, was originally written for the King of Soul R. Kelly. And, trust when I say, the track isn’t missing him at all.  NO SHADE,  but Syleena had to respectfully decline, using the Sarah Palin “Thanks but no thanks”, when referring to The Astronauts deal. Stating, “Every single I had was his (Robert Kelly’s). Possibly even overshadowed by his celebrity. But, Syleena expressed that she will always love them, (R. Kelly/Wayne Williams). “However, we’re all growing and not necessarily in the same direction, nor needed for our projects to do well. “

Syleena posts me portraying one of my favorite songs from Chapter 6 on her Instagram..."MY LOVE"

I can’t scream it anymore…YOU HAVE TO GET THIS ALBUM NOW!!! Soul music lovers have been begging for a record like this, and now we have it! I admire Syleena’s tenacity and determination to do it on her own terms! For those of you, who didn’t know…CHAPTER 6: Couples Therapy isn’t just her 11th release, it’s her 1st Soundtrack to the MOVIE…Titled “Couples Therapy”!!! Yes indeed she’s a BOSS!!!

FOOTBALL & PHILANTHROPY w/ MARCUS TRUFANT, EARL THOMAS, MICHAEL JOHNSON & MATT LEINART

Who knew the Summer of 2014 would be filled with Football and Philanthropy? Well, apparently most NFL fans knew, because these pro-athletes have been giving back to their communities for years.

You would think during the off season, they would frolic to warm weather vacation destinations, b-lining away from news crews and media, however that is not the case and I have proof 🙂

MARCUS TRUFANT | SEATTLE SEAHAWKS | TRUFANT FAMILY FOUNDATION

Trufant Family  Foundation’s Mission:

To help make dreams come true for disadvantaged youth and their families and to  build a personal connection and involvement with individuals and community programs that provide service to people who are most in need.

Trufant started 125 games in a Seattle career that lasted from 2003 to 2012. The cornerback was a first-round pick in 2003 out of Washington State and immediately moved into the starting lineup, playing a key role on the 2005 team that advanced to the franchise’s first Super Bowl.

Earl Thomas, III picks out the next bicycle to be given away to a child during his foundation’s bike giveaway over the Summer. Sixty bicycles were given to children by the Earl Thomas III Guardian Angel Foundation at Sixth Street Community Church in Orange, TX.

Growing up, Earl Thomas was lucky enough to have a strong, supportive family around him, but his life was not without hardship. His beginnings were humble and fraught with adversity, culminating with the loss of the family home in Orange, Texas, during Hurricane Rita in 2005.  Earl knows what it is to go without, which is why it remains so crucially important to him to give back to others.

We all know what that smile means :) #LookAtMeNow This is what giving back is all about!!!

In addition to various NFL-oriented community service activities like Play 60, Earl carries out a series of yearly efforts to help those who are less fortunate get back on their feet. His work annually includes a Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway, Winter Coat Drive, and a Free Summer Football Camp for children in the town where he grew up.

Tampa Bay Buccaneer Defensive End #90 Michael Johnson recently welcomed over 250 campers and a couple dozen of coaches to his 5th Annual Michael Johnson Youth Football & Cheer Camp and family-friendly Fun Fest with the NFL in his hometown of Selma, Alabama!
Fun Fest attendees enjoyed interactive games, music, food, and entertainment including a wing eating contest sponsored by Kentucky Fried Chicken, Celebrity and NFL Athlete Autographs and Photos as well as Special Meet and Greets with MTV star Coleysia Chestnut, 3D The Boss, Dr. Rondrick Williamson and mini make overs by We TV “LA Hair” star China Upshaw.
On the following day, football campers were taught basic football fundamentals while the cheer and dance campers learned basic cheer, dance and twirl routines and at half time all guests were treated to a live performance by pop trio  3D the Boss!

 On Tuesday, June 15, 2014, Johnson raised funds for MJ93 at the second annual Beauty and the Beast Swag Lounge pre-ESPY day party in L.A. presented by Trea Day Management and Publicity in conjunction with BMB Entertainment. The event was sponsored by Myx Fusions, LPL financial, Euphoric Treasures, Hula Girl, God Can and Marani Vodka. A-list guests, athletes and celebrities contributed to the fundraising by donating hundreds of dollars toward the cause. Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Michael Johnson has always had a heart for children and aspired to make a difference in children’s lives. When he was a youngster, Johnson often times gave to children less fortunate than he. A burning passion for helping those in need coupled with the desire to help children succeed were the driving forces that lead Johnson to create MJ93 as an NFL rookie, an organization that supports and encourages the education, mentorship, health and fitness of children.

The event was a major success and will allow MJ93 to continue to host their annual football and cheer camp, allow students to attend the MJ93 computer certificate program and to continue the Let’s Move Initiative launched by first lady Michelle Obama in an attempt to combat childhood obesity.
