This afternoon, Solange gifted us with a new song via Twitter. She mentioned on Twitter that she wrote “Favors” four years ago and the track has nothing to do with her album. “I just felt like sharing today,” she tweeted to her 600,000+ followers. I love it so now I’m sharing. Listen below!

New Music: “Favor” by Lonny Bereal

Lonny Bereal, former background singer for Brandy, Jamie Foxx, Tank and Destiny’s Child, releases “Favor” featuring Kelly Rowland. The feel of the sexy ballad, is reminiscent of J Holiday’s “Bed” but is catchy enough to be an after-dark favorite.

Maybach Music Group’s Audra The Rapper

VA native, Audra The Rapper, has been rapping since 14. Now 21 and officially signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group she is ready to break through.

At the age of 16, Audra won Hip Hop and R&B songwriter of the year in an international VH1 Save the Music Foundation competition. Ever since, the female rapper has generated heavy buzz and quite the East Coast fan base.

After attending college while becoming a high-flying music artist in the Richmond and Hampton Roads area she is more than prepared to assume the role as the first lady of Maybach Music.

Her Pre-Maybach Music mixtape, The Miseducation of Audra, from 2010 is still being downloaded as the world is getting acquainted with her. But, Audra is preparing to release her newest mixtape, No Such Thing Does Exist. For now, Audra has released the first single, “Coo Coo” presented by The Source.

Press Play: Mara Hruby

Fast-rising and star are two words that are being used heavily to describe 22-year-old artist, Mara Hruby. Oakland, CA native has been working hard to make a name for herself in the music industry since early 2010. Her hard work paid off and she is now releasing her debut EP, “From Her Eyes”. Mara has been working on this album for 9 months which was obviously time well spent because she has a major buzz currently surrounding her.

“From Her Eyes” is an EP of cover songs originally recorded by male artists with each song representing a moment in her life. She covers male artist Mos Def, Andre 3000, D’Angelo, Bob Marley and others.

Mara’s video for her first single off the EP, “Is This Love?”, recently surfaced the net. “Is This Love?” is a cover of the original Bob Marley song. The video was shot by Slick Jackson in NYC. All too often in videos we see the money, cars, diamonds and girls but this video feels real and there is nothing more real than the streets of NY and a beautiful voice. Check out “Is This Love?” below and right below that, press play to hear more from Mara Hruby.
