Nicole Mercedes Delivers an Epic Musical Experience with ‘Dare to Love – Dare to Dream’ on the playlist

We are pleased to announce that ‘Misty’ and ‘Sack Full of Dreams’ taken from the incredible new album ‘Dare to Love – Dare to Dream’ from Mercedes Nicole are now on the daily A-List playlist. Listen out for them on the playlist day and night + as a special DOUBLE POWERPLAY at 12 PM Midday Pacific time every lunch time for the next month or more.

Mercedes Nicole Has Released Her New Album “Dare to Love -Dare to Dream”.

Seattle-Based Jazz and Blues Vocalist, Nicole Mercedes has issued a call for the restoration of love and harmony in her latest album, Dare to Love- Dare to Dream.

The highly anticipated album, which is out now, features 9 sensational tracks ranging from 2:33 to 5:18 minutes in length. Providing far more than entertainment, each track on the album contains a powerful message that invites listeners to ponder the lyrics in the song to experience renewal, clarity, and healing. Nicole takes listeners on an exciting journey through:

  1. What’s Going On
  2. Save Your Love for Me
  3. I Love Being Here with You
  4. If it’s Magic
  5. Too Young to Go Steady
  6. Candy
  7. Sack Full of Dreams
  8. Rio De Janeiro Blue
  9. Misty

In the opening track, What’s Going, Nicole puts a Jazz twist to the classic cover made famous by Marvin Gaye. The singer is baffled by the inability of members of our society to resolve conflicts amicably, and the needless heartache that results when human beings react impulsively. Nicole’s warm refrain, “… Only love can conquer hate. We’ve got to find a way to bring some love in here today’ is haunting. On track 5, Nicole teams up with Harris Lemberg, Dan O’Brien, Brian Monroney, and Mark Ivester, to deliver a flirtatious performance of Too Young to Go Steady. It’s fast and charmingly infectious.

The last song, Misty, on Track 9- an Erroll Garner Classic is pure velvet. The gorgeous piano solo by Jake Sele, and the cooing flow of tenor saxophone player, Alexey Nicolave will have listeners feeling vulnerable, enchanted, and desiring to be found.

True to her reputation, Nicole connects with the message in each song. Her interpretation is riveting; her joy and pain are palpable, and she leaves listeners wanting to hear just one more. The song lyrics, combined with the captivating music and Nicole’s rich, expressive tone makes for an epic album that listeners will want to have on repeat.

Dare to Love: Dare to Dream released on Bonaberi to Paris Label, is a self-production of Mercedes Nicole. The album was recorded at the David Lange Studios in June 2023. It is Nicole’s first album since her 2020 release of Constellation. When asked about the motivation for creating Dare to Love: Dare to Dream, she explained: “Music is a powerful medium that has the power to promote healing, clarity, and change hearts and minds. This CD will not only satisfy the desire to indulge in blissful escape, but is a call to action, to restore beauty, love, and harmony, as well as evoke passion to create a better tomorrow.

Dare to Love- Dare to Dream is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, ReverbNation, and wherever music is sold.

A strangely fascinating song and music video, “Shuger” tells the strange tale of obsession and touches upon a theme as old as time – love and the broken heart. It’s perhaps for this reason that the song has amassed such an impressive fandom in just over a month since its release. Or perhaps it’s Ace the Fetus’s strange, yet compelling presence.

Right off the bat, the music video (starting with a moving box on legs) strikes you as peculiar, but also interesting. You want to know more. And once that slow, jazzy rhythm kicks in, you’re practically hooked.

Ace the Fetus has a low, melodic voice that vibes perfectly in pretty much any type of situation. It’s a great song for parties, or romantic evenings, and pretty much everything in between. “Shuger” is a fascinating track, both because of the pleasant beats, but also through its highly versatile nature. As the song progresses, you’ll notice Ace the Fetus’s style changes, shifting genres as smoothly as any experienced musician.

“Shuger” blends elements of jazz, alt rock, indie, and pop, and so manages to appeal to an immense range of different listeners.
It’s also why we think it will appeal to you, so what are you waiting for? Check out “Shuger” from Ace the Fetus now, and come back to thank us later.

Multi-instrumentalist Gerry Smoot will captivate music lovers with his new single ‘Sweet Delight’

Born in Owensboro; the industrial, medical, retail and cultural hub of western Kentucky, Gerry Smoot let the elements of his surroundings birth a multi-instrumentalist musician.

Making his claim on the R&B world, TW delivers effervescent feels for his new release ‘Guestlist’.

The 22-year-old has hit out a number of standout records in recent month, captivating the GRM audience and underground UK soundsphere.

Teaming up with KS on previous drop ‘Nike Tech’ back in May, the video snapped up an impressive 313K views turning the heat up on a new phase of his bubbling career.

Enjoying the journey to define his sound, TW has already been heard playing with a variety of vibes as he cherrypicks instrumentals that hint on afrobeats, R&B, garage and jazz.

‘Guestlist’ slides into the R&B and afrobeats world but it is his caramel vocals, delectable range and hypnotic flow that makes his music shine.

As is the motive for many an upcoming star that has the entertainment world at their feet, TW crosses his skill into the world of acting and if he’s not laying down new music in the studio, he’s often found on set or casting for Netflix.

Working alongside Hot Money Studios, TW is a regular collaborator with producers including J Glad, JT and Nikita, and has been working to define his sound and find his musical niche.

His smooth vocals, undoubtedly influenced by his love for singing royalty, such as Drake and Craig David, is certainly finding its way into the light and blossoming upon each release, with his track record to date hosting increasingly strong accolades, it would seem that TW is one Guestlist we don’t want to miss out on.

DISCOVER NAUGHTY BUT NICE RNB DIVAS: Seducing you with her dreamy ‘Barry White’ beating Jazzy soulful modern Trap RnB fusion the dope ‘Intelligent Diva’ scoops out some exotic and groovy ‘Ice Cream’

Summer’s here, the sun is hot in the sky and you’re just craving a good, cold cone of ice cream, right?

We know the feeling. And let us tell you, you’ll be craving it a lot more when you hear the song we’ve got for you.

This one’s simply called “Ice Cream” and it’s coming from Florida-based artist Intelligent Diva.

In spite of the chilly name, the tune is so deliciously steamy you’ll get your sunglasses all foggy, and that’s no empty boast.

With characteristic sass and sexiness, Intelligent Diva gets right down and dirty with this one. If you haven’t inferred from what we’ve told you so far, “Ice Cream” is most definitely not a song for folks under eighteen. Why? Well, because Intelligent Diva tells us, rather explicitly, of all the different joys and pleasures ice cream can bring about… especially in couples. Yep, this one’s S-T-E-A-M-Y, steamy, so you better get ready.

DISCOVER NAUGHTY BUT NICE RNB DIVAS: Seducing you with her dreamy ‘Barry White’ beating Jazzy soulful modern Trap RnB fusion the dope ‘Intelligent Diva’ scoops out some exotic and groovy ‘Ice Cream’

“Ice Cream”, taken off the marvellously titled album “Seduction”, which just dropped on the 8th, is practically the story of two people, a chocolate boy and an unabashed woman who meet for the first time and have some pretty interesting ideas about one another. In her inimitable, gravelly voice, Intelligent Diva goes into quite some detail about the saucy fantasies these two strangers have about one another , and it will leave you gasping for breath.

As with her previous hits, such as “Sexy Walk”, “Boy Shorts” or the super-spicy “Lo Que Me Gusta”, Intelligent Diva skilfully combines beautiful, spicy song writing with excellent rhythm and a haunting beat that will shake you down to your very core. “Ice Cream” is the kind of tune to get into your head and never leave, so that you’ll find yourself humming it at random times, but be careful – wouldn’t want your boss to hear you, as it’s most definitely NSFW.

Intelligent-Diva-01

What we particularly like about Intelligent Diva is that she’s a true feminist – a beautiful, talented woman who’s not afraid to speak her mind and talk about all the nasty stuff that women “shouldn’t” talk about. Intelligent Diva is a free-spirited artist who’s not afraid to take you to the dark side of her imagination, and you will be oh-so-glad once you get there.

Don’ t believe us? Then why not join the thousands of Spotify listeners who are enjoying “Ice Cream” right now?
