Music News ROLO: FILA – Forever I Love Atlanta

fila-1

I know I have been avoiding my ChokLit Factory like the plague. I have been absent from the music for a bit and it shows. Of course my Readers still hung in there with me, so you already know I was cookin’ up some sweet stuff for ya’ll. I spent most of last week in one of my favourite cities, Atlanta, Georgia and best believe we had fuuuun 🙂

Stuntin' like Canadians!

Some of the clubs we frequented that I must shout out:

PURE on Thursday nights had a nice open space, room for VIPs and a spacious dance floor. The music was on point, if not repetitive, and some of the VIP staff was pushy, but this is a solid club where you are guaranteed a good time.

Club ESSO – Now, we only ended up here because Velvet Lounge was impossible to get into, but I am glad we did because only at ESSO did we get the true Decatur flavour – including music straight out of ATL’s hoods, a separate room for dancehall & reggae, and ladies wearing flip flops – yes flip flops.

Tongue & Groove is a new spot for Monday nights that caters to the women. With free martinis until 12am, a spacious area and a mix of professional meets street ATL men, it was a welcome cure for the Monday blues.

Now for the music! It took a while to recognize what was really hot in the ATL because the radio provided a lot of repetition (but what else do we expect?) and most of the songs were ones we’re heard before, like Trey Songz & Drake’s Successful, TheDream’s Sweat it Out and Jay-Z, Rihanna & Kanye’s We Run This Town.

But here are some real bangers we liked:

Sammie feat. Trey Songz – Bedroom G

I’ve actually heard this track before coming to Atlanta, but I still like the song nonetheless. Sammie pairs up with the Prince himself to tell the ladies how he gets down in the bedroom.

Gucci Mane feat. Plies – Wasted

This song is a certified ATL hit! Gucci Mane is the hottest ATL import right now and he now has his own hit to prove it! Plies adds some swag to the track as well. The beat knocks!

Lil Scrappy feat. Ludacris – Partna Dem

We just started hearing this song as we were leaving and it shut down the clubs when it played! The beat is ridiculous and Ludacris really brings it with his rhyme. Its Hot Choklit!

Don’t worry, we’ll have more info on the ATL with tomorrow’s posts! Yuuuup!

Music News ROLO: We got the Nu Nu in R&B music, Catch Up!

Another treat for ya’ll, some more music! Nothing too groundbreaking, but pleasant enough…check it out!

First we have Monica’s Once in a Lifetime, released a week or so ago onto the ‘Nets. Monica released Still Standing last year, but it didn’t make too much of an impact on the charts. This track,produced by Brian Michael Cox doesn’t particularly grab me, and nothing about it sticks, but it is a nice song. Some people are comparing it to Mary J. Blige’s Be Without You. Maybe after a couple of listens…
