name might not immediately ring a bell, but his presence has been felt on tons of your favorite artists’ tracks. In addition to singing/songwriting, Vallis is a producer and an engineer, having worked with the likes of Lil Wayne
, Young Jeezy
and many others. He links up with none other than Kelly Rowland
for his new cut “Love Stand Still.”
The track — penned by Sevyn Streeter and Eric Bellinger — is a breezy love song about enjoying the moment, where Beau and Kelly’s vocals blend perfectly with the romantically spacey beat of production team Da Internz. There’s a lot of talent on this one track, where the vocalists are as strong as the songwriters. Talk about a winning combo! It’s about time Beau Vallis stepped from behind the boards and got on stage. Let’s hope he stays there.

‘ heavenly “Say Yes”
video premiered today (June 18) and evoked serious nostalgia by reuniting the children of destiny. It was heart-warming to see the gospel diva finally have her moment — singing and dancing her heart out as best friends/sisters Beyonce
and Kelly Rowland
helped her out by each taking a verse.
There’s so much going on in this visual extravaganza — I could dedicate a whole post to Queen Bey’s dazzling braids — that it demands something of a play-by-play for overwhelmed Destiny’s Child addicts and curious pop fans who caught the holy spirit after being exposed to Michelle’s uplifting gospel banger. See the video’s 8 best/totally accurate moments after the jump. More »
holds a Destiny’s Child
reunion in her uplifting and oddly nostalgic “Say Yes”
video. Produced by Harmony Samuels
, the catchiest gospel song in recent memory/ever deserves a joyous visual and the holy twerker
certainly delivers with a cute street party-themed opus. Who says you can’t worship and get down at the same time?
The video begins with the choir-fixing diva looking fierce and fabulous on the streets of New Jersey. Soon, she’s having a religious experience in a beautiful white dress with two of her best friends. Beyonce‘s outfit has to be seen to be believed and Kelly Rowland, well, she looks as gorgeous as ever. That’s when the party kicks off and our favorite girls reunite for some impromptu dance moves. If you love Destiny’s Child (and good music in general) this is unmissable. Watch up top. More »
is all about having her fun right now.
As part of Pepsi’s innovative Beats Of The Beautiful Game audio-visual project — a collaboration between superstar artists, producers and directors that ties together the worlds of sports, art and music — the Child of Destiny has returned to us in 2014 with “The Game,” an empowering anthem perfectly suited for preparing to head onto the field. (The Spike Lee-directed, soccer-infused video for the song just premiered today.)
And that’s not all: Between slowly but surely recording her fifth studio album, teaming up with her Destiny’s Child soulmates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams for Michelle’s inspirational holy banger “Say Yes,” as well dropping a possibly-maybe clue about being pregnant on Instagram a mere ten minutes after speaking with us (!?!), it’s safe to say that things are certainly looking up for “Kisses Down Low” diva.

just dropped a bombshell on Instagram. The Destiny’s Child
diva posted a picture of baby sneakers next to a pair of basketball shoes with the comment: “I’ll be stuntin like my daddy.” That was interpreted by the ever-knowing internet as confirmation of her rumored pregnancy and fans immediately flooded her feed with well wishes.
While we wait for an official announcement from Kelly, check out the trailer of her Spike Lee-directed visual for “The Game”. It finds a child kicking a soccer ball through the picturesque streets of Brazil with a bunch of friends. The video is pretty much perfect for a World Cup anthem and should strike a chord with fans of the beautiful game. Watch after the jump. More »
, Kelly Rowland
and Michelle Williams
, together known as Destiny’s Child
, have regrouped for the first time since their powerhouse performance at the Super Bowl
on the set of the video for Michelle’s urban gospel banger, “Say Yes.”
Although the video shoot was supposed to be a surprise — one might even say it was Unexpected — fans and paparazzi alike were quick to track down the trio during the shoot last month. After all, when you’ve got the ladies of DC3 all together in one room, it’s all but impossible not to get the entire world shaking and crying.
“We heard all this commotion going on while we were filming. We filmed at somebody’s house and they probably got excited and called their cousins and friends and, next thing you know, the whole town was on one street,” Michelle revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.

While there’s no doubt that R&B songstress Kelly Rowland is a total trailblazer
, this time around, she’s making it readily apparent by releasing hot, new single “The Game.” Featured on the 11-track album, Pepsi Beats Of The Beautiful Game,
which will include tracks from pop heavyweights such as Janelle Monae
, Don Omar
and Rita Ora
, this pop anthem is not only incredibly fierce, but also one that will be accompanied by a short film directed by award-winning filmmaker Spike Lee
“I was immediately attracted to ‘The Game’ because I can identify with its theme of overcoming challenges and finding your voice,” said Rowland when speaking about the track. “It’s a very important message and I’m honored to partner with Pepsi on a project that brings the worlds of music, sports, and film together. As an artist—and a huge film and sports fan—it’s been an incredible experience.”

‘ future smash “Say Yes”
(featuring the vocal talents of Beyonce
and Kelly Rowland
) now has an official cover and release date. The much-discussed Destiny’s Child
reunion is now available to pre-order
ahead of its June 2 arrival. You can also preview a minute and a half of the mixed and mastered track, which sounds considerably better than the already awesome unfinished leak.
Produced by Harmony Samuels, “Say Yes” is the third single from Michelle’s long-awaited Journey To Freedom LP. It is based on a popular Nigerian hymn but has major pop appeal. Like “If We Had Your Eyes” and “Fire”, the DC diva’s latest is equally appropriate for church or the club. Which is an incredible achievement in and of itself. As for the cover, the Jesus Christ Superstar actress has never looked more sumptuous or blessed. More »
killed off that tiresome #PoorMichelle
meme once and for all yesterday (May 21) when new single “Say Yes”
surfaced online. Not only does the catchy toe-tapper feature Beyonce
and Kelly Rowland
(and thus reunite Destiny’s Child
), it also expertly bridges the gap between gospel and popular music. This could be the first song of praise to crossover since Mary Mary
‘s “Shackles (Praise You)”
After keeping mum about the leak, Michelle jumped on her awesome Twitter and thanked fans for their support but explained that the version being shared online is unmixed and unmastered. She also revealed that “Say Yes” was produced by Harmony Samuels (the man behind Ariana Grande‘s “The Way”) and is based on a popular Nigerian hymn. See the DC diva’s tweets after the jump as well as a pic of Beyonce arriving at the video shoot and an awesome solo performance of the song from late 2013. More »
