Elijah Blake is on a roll!

After leaving Roc Nation‘s management bosom to find a new manager in industry power player Jordan Feldstein the R&B singer has released the first single to be pulled from his debut album this year.

Its name? ‘I Just Wanna’, now available to spin here.

Now, after failing to see any of his singles impact the Billboard Hot 100, the performer has seen this song promise on Rhythmic radio and find supporters in….camp Beyonce.

Full story below…

Fans of the ‘No Angel’ singer took to social media to express their surprise when they learned her choreographer Chris Grant and lead dancer Ashley Everett had been spotted on the set of a music video earlier this week.

Their theory? Beyonce was working on a secret visual.

However, it wasn’t long before they learned that the stage-slaying pair were actually working for Elijah, teaming up to choreograph for and star in ‘Wanna’s video!

The Def Jam-backed visual is yet to receive a release date but will follow videos released to support Blake’s EPs ‘Drift’ and ‘Bijoux 22.’ The latter is responsible for spawning the single ‘XOX’ which has sold over 500,000 units  in the USA since its release in December 2012.

    Ashley is so hot, and a great dancer.
    I hope she becomes the next Tina Landon.

    • Tyler Makiveli April 17, 2015

      Yeah, she’s bad ass!

    • Toohotfortv April 17, 2015

      She would have to be the actual choreographer to attain that status. I’m sure she has it in her, but lord… tina was so dope back in the day.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 17, 2015

        That’s what I meant is for to become a full out choreography like in the Tina/Paula/LaurieAnn vain.

        She works hard and should have that kind of respect and responsibility when the time comes..

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 17, 2015

        *choreographer

        **also, yes Tina brought that fierceness to many acts! She’s amazing!

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig April 17, 2015

      She’s an amazing dancer, hopefully she won’t do what Laurie Ann *boom kack* did and try to get into music (unless she secretly has an amazing voice). But hey, sometimes it works for some people a la Jennifer Lopez after the iconic ‘That’s The Way Love Goes’ video.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen (aka T.I.T.S.) April 17, 2015

        Lol. I forgot about LaurieAnn trying to do music! LMAO!! Oh well..

  8. TheElusiveLamb April 17, 2015

    Well good for him, but the title had me believing that he was under Beyoncé’s management team or something of the sort for his album.
