Following the release of the single last Friday (Aug. 26), Maurice Moore debuts the music video for “Please You.”
Set against a gorgeous, colorful sunrise, the 19-year-old Ottawa, Canada native performs the honest reflection record while dancing in front of the camera. Moore has a message to the industry and any critic on the catchy record, produced by Instupendo & Auracle.
“These days everybody think they need to share opinions / Wait, what did you say? / It don’t matter anyway / ‘Cause I’m just a man, and you’ll never understand that … I don’t live to please you,” he confidently sings.
In today’s copy-and-paste music industry, few divas remain, few icons have achieved the staying power of singer/songwriter Toni Braxton.
As the inimitable voice behind such hits as “Breathe Again,” “You’re Makin’ Me High,” “He Wasn’t Man Enough” and the iconic “Unbreak My Heart,” Braxton established herself with an elegant, soulfully distinctive style and the ability to seamlessly shift from genre to genre, making her one of the most successful female artists of the ‘90s, with seven GRAMMYs and more than 40 million albums sold.
Beyond her stratospheric recording career, Braxton has branched out as an actress, producer, philanthropist, reality television personality, and [...]

Michael Jackson delivered in music, movement and message. Lyrically, his verses spoke to humanity, social injustice, nature and even touched on relationships and love.
Throughout his career, he repeatedly proved to be “bad” and continued to “thrill” us all with his creative intuition and innovation.
Another notable when speaking about the King of Pop was his desire to make everything magical.
From lighting up the sidewalk while professing that “[Billie Jean] is just a girl who thinks I am the one” to tricking eyes with his infamous forward-lean and shiny-sock backward slide as he wowed us with the [...]
There must always be rules.
Whether chasing a suspected criminal or watching the hero of a movie hunt down his sworn enemy, everyone knows you just can’t shoot someone in the back. When tough man competitions— arguably a progenitor of mixed martial arts—first emerged to see which fighting style was the best, they declared that you couldn’t gouge someone’s eyes out.

They are sometimes unwritten, and oftentimes unsaid, but there are always rules.
Except when it comes to the manipulation of Black people.
Last week, American [...]
