Must Hear: Keyshia Cole – ‘Wonderland (Ft Elijah Blake)’ / ‘Talk To Me’

Published: Thursday 18th Apr 2013 by David

The brilliance of R&B’s revival in recent years lies in the variety that has come along with it.

For, as Trey Songz and Willie Taylor succeed in peddling the ‘grown and sexy’, the likes of Frank Ocean continue to carve out more personal lanes, breathing life into the genre with messages and melodies that transcend genre for the first time in a long time.

Joining them in taking the genre back to the top comes Elijah Blake, the Grammy winning singer/songwriter whose ways with words has seen him pen cuts for Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Usher, Rihanna and ‘DUI‘ vocalist Ciara.

Now, in shining a light on the genius that caught Jay Z‘s ear no more than two years ago, we’re sharing just two of our favorite songs from the star. One of them, being his Keyshia ColeWonderland‘ duet and his very own ‘Talk To Me’.

Quality music below…

      • OVOForever April 18, 2013

  5. DOSSOME April 18, 2013

    Elijah Blake a grammy winning singer/songwriter?

    Ciara a vocalist?

    Your “interns” stay boycotting the truth Samantha…

    • TurntUp4Cici April 18, 2013

      He wrote Climax. Climax won a Grammy.
      Does Ciara use her voice to record music or does she not?

      • DOSSOME April 18, 2013

        So that makes her a vocalist?lmao…then everyones’ a vocalist

      • JanetXone April 18, 2013

        You’re a hater. Ciara is a vocalist.

      • DOSSOME April 18, 2013

        I’m gonna let you feed your delusions hun

      • TaylorWins April 18, 2013

        But Ciara is a singer though.

  6. DOSSOME April 18, 2013

    Elijah Blake is not a grammy winning singer/songwriter and Ciara is not a vocalist…stop sneaking lies into your articles

    • KDreamer (Miguel Hit it) April 18, 2013

      Climax didn’t win a Grammy?

      • DOSSOME April 18, 2013

        Erm…grammy winning songwriter is the right word…until he wins a grammy for his singing,then he’s not a grammy winning singer/songwriter which is in itself a career..look it up

      • RoyalNavi April 18, 2013

        True dat.

      • TeenageDreamer April 18, 2013

        Has Rihanna ever won a Grammy for song writing?

  7. DOSSOME April 18, 2013

    I’m gonna let you feed your delusions hun..Ciara’s a vocalist

    • TheHookUp April 18, 2013

      B****, from when you use your VOICE to project a sound you are a vocalist. Whether you’re a good one or not is a different story. People do the same s*** to Brit all the time and I hate it.

      • DOSSOME April 18, 2013

        My bad…then everyone is a vocalist going by that definition

    • AQueenLikeBey April 18, 2013

      Dossome must be Elijah’s ex girlfriend kiiii.

      • Pinkslam April 18, 2013


      • DOSSOME April 18, 2013

  9. Navy Sailor!!! April 18, 2013

    So tired of Elijah being shoved down our throats. He’s the male Rita Ora around these parts.

    • RitasLipstick April 18, 2013
