R&B artist, Chris Brown’s music remains trending as social media takes us back to music from his ninth studio album, Indigo.
The original album was released June 28, 2019, as an extended cut version was released in August. Indigo: Extended included ten additional tracks making the album 42 songs long, including his newly popular single, “Under the Influence.”
But remember the viral dance studio video on YouTube last year by choreographer Nicole Kirkland? Yeah, this is that song. Not far after that, the single began to start its own trend among social media platforms. The rest is history; literally.
In this generation of social media influencers, you can never underestimate the realm of a comeback. As TikTok users created a variety of videos, “Under the Influence” made quite an appearance in content all over the country and Chris Brown was definitely paying attention.
Topping the charts every week over the summer on Apple Music, the single was officially certified platinum at 318 millions streams on Spotify this week as reported by Rated R&B.
So in celebration, Brown thanked his fans via Instagram. And to our surprise, also announced a music video release to the single very soon. You can watch the tease to the “Under the Influence” trailer video here.
Let’s hope there’s more to come including more videos from the “Warm Embrace” singer.
It’s AWAARRDD SEAASSSOONNN!!! And I am here for all the looks that were served so fiercely and colorfully by the attendees. Before the week is over, I just wanted to give my top 10 favorite looks of the night, so here they are:
1: LIZZO in Giambattista Valli
Lizzo looked STUNNING in this beautiful tulle dress designed by Giambattista Valli in vibrant red. It’s giving volume, it’s giving boss girl, it’s giving “look at me I’m here”. She’s such an inspiration to me, especially when it comes to fashion because she’s not afraid to wear what she wants or not wear anything at all. I just love her courage and fierce nature. So you better watch out for the BIG GRRRLS because we’re winning! Literally. (Congrats to LIZZO on her first Emmy win for Outstanding Competition Program!)
2. ISSA RAE in Sergio Hudson
There’s nothing I love more than a bold black and white moment on the red carpet because you don’t see it as often. Issa Rae stunned as she always does in a white and black (or black and white) gown designed by Sergio Hudson. As amazing as she looks, you can’t help but be convinced that you need this in your life. The stunner of the evening, Issa Rae just illuminates confidence and you better not forget it.
3. ROSARIO DAWSON in Christian Siriano
Blushing as pink as her dress, Rosario is just a delight as she floats down the red carpet in this soft pink gown designed by Christian Siriano. Loving the fun tulle moment up top and the peek of skin underneath for her mid-section. Definitely a sparkle of a moment for sure.
4. QUINTA BRUNSON in Dolce & Gabbana
This was such a moment! Quinta just gives off queen vibes in this stunning chocolate embellished gown by Dolce & Gabbana. As brown skin girls everywhere are probably in awe by this dress, Quinta made sure to empower those watching as well serve every inch.
5. SHERYL LEE RALPH in Brandon Blackwood & Hair done by Moira “Fingaz” Frazier
Sheryl literally took my breath away in this black velvet dress that was a first-time dress made by the handbag designer Brandon Blackwood. But that’s not all. She sparkled from head to (pony)tail with gems spread all throughout her hair done by hair stylist Moira “Fingaz” Frazier. Keeping it chic and classic in black, the first-time Emmy winner couldn’t have been more beautiful.
6. MOLLY SHANNON in Christian Siriano
It’s not an award show moment without some color and color is what she gave. Molly Shannon looks spicy in her hot pink gown by Christian Siriano. The actress served up a look and gave us a silhouette we can’t forget. One of my favorite looks because of the deep V and ruching around her waist. Such an amazing dress.
7. ZENDAYA in Maison Valentino
Now this was an after-party look favorite of mine and Zendaya never fails to surprise me with these stunning looks. She is wearing a sleek bright red gown by Maison Valentino. I thought she would have decided to wear something from the pink collection dropping with Valentino but this was an amazing surprise.
8. LEE JUNG-JAE in Gucci
One of my favorite actors currently from Netflix’s “Squid Game”, Lee Jung-jae, arrived oh so handsomely in his studded Gucci suit. Serving his version of tall, dark and handsome he still gave us a pop of color underneath his black attire. Winning his first Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actor, Lee Jung-jae continues to amaze us even in his style.
9. TOHEEB JIMOH in Dior
Men’s fashion really came through tonight and Toheeb Jimoh proved it with his white velvet suit by Dior. Eye-catching with an additional piece along his waist, Toheeb definitely stepped up and showed out changing the game.
10. SARAH CATHARINE PAULSON in Louis Vuitton
Ok, so this look won and lost at the same time so that’s why I saved it for last because it’s penalty the best thing I’ve ever seen. It’s geometric, it’s girly and apparently it’s a collab with Louis Vuitton. I love a look that challenges the fashion b boundaries and Sarah Catharine Paulson did just that with this midnight satin look. You go girl.
This year’s 74th Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony was hosted by SNL actor Kenan Thompson this past Monday at the Microsoft Theater located in LA, where it aired on NBC at 8 p.m. ET.
I’m new to this blog lifestyle so of course I want my followers to interact and tell me what they think! Let me know what your thoughts are and opinions. Please keep negative comments to a minimum because no one wants to read that shit at least not me.
The positive side of commenting gives me an idea of who is actually paying attention to what I post. I can also get an idea of the age range of my followers as well as the ethnicity and even sex of the person. It will motivate me to write more and be more consistent with my material and hopefully will spur a pool of new ideas and topics to touch on.
But the negative side of all of this is if I get a haters or a competitor trolling on my page that try to make me look bad and then I’ll have to just delete or block them if the comments are too derogatory or hateful. Hopefully no one will do that though and luckily it’s been good so far.
I’d love to create a discussion in my comments because that way you can interact with the other followers. Maybe you guys share the same opinion or come up with a great twist to a new idea or something, I don’t know. Anything is possible with my comments and I’m allowing it all.
I also post my articles and blog posts to social media to expand my reach and see how many interactions I can obtain from posting on Instagram and Facebook.
