The website ThisIsRnB made a list of the 13 new R&B artist to look out for in 2013. While it included artists that I already knew because of them, it did include a new standout singer that I had never heard of. His name is Sebastian Mikael. Here is what you need to know about him. He is a native of Sweden and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. Good enough? Probably not. But go ahead and press play on that video above and then you will realize why I'm even taking time to introduce as many people as I can to this singer. With a new album set to release this year I think if he keeps making music like this we'll keep hearing Sebastian's name. Check out the videos below. "Beautiful Life" has already been played 12 times on my iPod and I just heard the song yesterday. The life version of this track is amazing as you can really hear the range of his falsetto.

Even though 50's album got pushed back once again he still has time to let loose the video for his other single that does not feature Adam Levine or Eminem.
My favorite track is the T-Pain song with Ace Hood & Busta Rhymes. In my opinion he could have left them off the song, add one more verse and make it better. But that's just my opinion. Enjoy.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra is an American and New Zealand rock band composed of singer Ruban Nielson, bassist Jake Portrait and drummer Greg Rogove. And their tunes are rocking! I love being introduced to this kind of music. Listen and you will not be disappointed.
I came across Toro Y Moi and peeped one the of the videos below and I was just not in the right frame of mind to deal with the video. It's a weird video, he looks like a weird dude, but he's making this great electronic music. It's one dude, hailing from South Carolina who is a beast in what he does. Check it out. Above is one of the stand out tracks from his upcoming album that will be released tomorrow entitled Anything In Return.
Talib Kweli stops by the Hot 97 morning show to discuss some of the current events going on.
No instruments. all voice. A cappella cover of Bruno Mars song "Locked Out of Heaven." I never knew who Eddie Timmons was but this dude did a great a capella cover of this song. He filmed himself 6 different times to bring this video to us. Check it out.
The latest film is Ali: The Mission, from Amani Martin and narrated by acclaimed singer/songwriter John Legend. This short tells the story of Muhammad Ali's trip to Iraq prior to the Gulf War in 1991 to call for peace and negotiate with Saddam Hussein for the release of U.S. citizens taken hostage after the invasion of Kuwait.
Barack Obama sings his smoothest, most soulful case for another 4 years in office. Loving us forever is what he neeeeeeeeds.
The people who brought you Autotune the News are back with the Barack Obama rendition of Al Green "Let's Say Together."

Page Kennedy let loose this cypher that includes parodies of rappers Jadakiss, Lil Wayne and Fred the Godson. I thought all the impersonations were pretty awesome, especially Fred's character because the punchlines were so on point.
