The Spill On…Avant, Kevin McCall, P.J. Morton, and Raheem Devaughn

 

Ever keen on keeping the masses abreast of fresh and/or often underrated talent, That Grape Juice presents ‘The Spill’ – a renewed look at not-so-new, yet active, acts.

Much like its ‘Freshly Squeezed’ sister segment, this revived assay aims to put the magnifying glass on talents who may not appeal to the buying public on a broad scale yet are still serving material that could easily spin side-by-side with some of today’s top hits.

Covering a kaleidoscope of genres, ‘The Spill’ is set to feature some names you probably know and love as well as some you’ll (soon) be glad to know.  Click below to find out the spill on crooners Avant, Kevin McCall & Tank, PJ Morton, and Raheem Devaughn below…

Hot Shots: Willow Smith Unveils Bold New Look

It’s hard to believe three years have passed since Willow Smith released the smash hit single ‘Whip My Hair‘.

Indeed, while some fans were disappointed its release wasn’t followed by the LP promised to them, the singer continued to keep her buzz alive this week when she unveiled a brand new hairstyle on Twitter, as seen above.

Snapped in the company of friends, the ROC star’s snaps saw her sport the purple look one year after she was reported to have signed onto star in a remake of Gray’s Annie but pulled out some time later, forfeiting the role to Quvenzhané Wallis.

Peep more from the 12 year old megastar after the jump!

Cover Star: Ceron & BDot Do Al Green’s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ (Must See)

This week’s That Grape Juice Cover Star comes from Nashvillian duo Ceron and Bdot.  Press play below to hear the twosome take on Al Green‘s signature classic ‘Let’s Stay Together’:

Amazing!  With tonal quality and stylings reminiscent of Chrisette Michele and Marsha Ambrosius (with sprinklings of Lil’ Mo), Bdot laid into ‘Let’s Stay Together’ with a melisma marathon – runs, riffs, and scats galore!  But, even in its abundance, the songstress managed restraint and allowed her passion to shine through to avoid overdoing it (a trait absent from many-her-Youtube contemporary).

Delivering a fiery rendition of the 70s hit (especially from the 2:15 mark) with the accompaniment of Ceron’s skillful guitar pluck, it goes without saying that we need many more duos like this on our radios.  Well done Ceron & Bdot!
