One of my best friends sent me “the song of the day,” and it took me all the way back. I was at work, volume turned up to the max, singing at the top of my lungs. In 1994 I lived for Brandy, and Monica. Of course I was team Monica, but there was no way you could deny Brandy was the ISH!!

I WANNA BE DOWN (REMIX) 2014- BET HIP HOP AWARDS
**There is something about Queen Latifah on stage rapping in 2014 that makes me smile on the inside. When I first saw the performance from the BET Hip Hop Awards, I wanted to jump through my computer screen, and show the audience the reaction they should have had.
