Consequence – Whatever You Want ft. Kanye West & John Legend

After Kanye West helped John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi and Mr Hudson reach higher platforms it is now time for longtime friend and Good Music affiliate Consequence to make his mark.

Consequence, the former A Tribe Called Quest emcee, has been supporting ‘Ye and Good Music for quite some while, this might just be his breakthrough track, the party-vibed Whatever You Want featuring Mr West and John Legend, a stylish, mature sounding effort, it is catchy, the video just seems like a good vacation, it has a essence to it which is very Kanye at the moment, this will rise, taking Consequence’s reputation and fanbase up with it.

Mr Hudson – White Lies

Everyone’s favourite Englishmen returns with a new video for his second single ‘White Lies’.

Written and Co-produced by Music Kidz, White Lies is a real, heartfelt song, a unique concept, beautiful executed as this finished product, it is emphatic and meaningful, a beautiful track to say the least.

From his early work as part of Mr Hudson & The Library, it was always clear that feeling and emotion are heavy inspirations for his work, which he would then transcend into his music, it was witnessed with the release of the successful Supernova and is followed with this alternative effort. A style that can be considered R&B, pop or even indie, Mr Hudson has his own style, noticable with his appearance as well as his music, a mature sound, his take on situations is smart and extremely creative, a genius is in his own right.

The video is like his previous single, a unique visual, this time portraying different roles as both good and evil, the video is very retro and remeniscent of old sci-fi movies however he manages to offer a modern contrast which makes the video very relevant and and an enjoyable visual of vivid emotion and artistry.

Expect more boundary breaking creativity from Mr Hudson.

Mr Hudson – Anyone But Him ft. Kanye West

As the GOOD Music (Kanye’s label) artist’s new single Supernova (featuring Kanye West) continues to rise in the charts, his potential next single leaks and this one has a mixed review.

Anyone But Him ft. Kanye West, is something really different if comparing to current songs, however, using sounds used today the track manages to stay relevant, the arrangement is unorthadox, similar to Supernova and previous (pre-Good music) releases from Mr Hudson, Kanye’s verse is not the best but then it isn’t his worst either, this would make a good mixtape track, or require a bit of work and a better video than Supernova to really push it as a single. As easy as it is to critisize this song, I have to mention that it’s creativity and innovative factor is really inspiring, to create something that is not generic, something that does not sound like everything else being made and played on radio and TV, to create somthing unique, for the love of music not for the sake of quick fame/money.
