#WellnessWed: What's your THEME SONG?




"I feel that everyone should have a theme song. A song that describes you and makes you feel good about yourself. A song that every time it comes on, you know it was written for you." Theme Song is the 7th section of the Butterfly stage in my book Finding Your Flow: A Butterfly's Secret to Happiness. 
- Adrienne Charleson

Photo credit: @blackbyrdmedia



Finding Your Flow: A Butterfly’s Secret to Happiness is a guided self-help book based on the life cycle of the butterfly. The sole purpose of the book is to help those of you
struggling with sadness, a lack of true enjoyment with life, and a lack of purpose. In many cultures the butterfly is a symbol of change, hope, and life. For other cultures, it is a symbol of resurrection. For me, the butterfly is synonymous with being happy, being free, and finding your true inner and outer beauty, and this is what I want you to accomplish in working through this book. As you progress through the stages of the book, my hope is that you emerge on the other side as the joyous person you’ve always wanted to be. I want to help you to find the butterfly within you and live a life of
balance, purpose, and true joy!

ALBUM REVIEW: Ralphael Saadiq JIMMY LEE (review by Reg Thompson)




Ralphael Saadiq JIMMY WALKER
Review by Reg Thompson



     Soul has a way of evoking our feelings that at times becomes deep down in our spectrum. The message becomes clearer once the feelings and the power of the music creates a strong emotional bond. In his recent studio album in close to a decade, accomplished R&B musician Raphael Saadiq unveils a project that took a dark trip in his own psyche. Jimmy Lee is safe to say a contrast to the more conventional music he is known for. The album was dedicated to his brother of the same name of the album, who died from a heroin overdose after contracting HIV. Saadiq was able to unleash his feelings about the death all throughout the album. The album begins with the song Sinner’s Prayer by calling out to God. He questions if he hears the sinner praying, if so does he answer. This follows with “So Ready.” A very solid song that captures a vintage Raphael Saadiq sound and carried by its hypnotic bass that swoons the melody. The next song “The World IS Drunk” is one of the most thought provoking in tackling his brother’s death. He went on to say that the world needs to help those who succumb to sobriety issues instead of just ridiculing it. “Something Keep Calling” continues the momentum as “King’s Fall” tackles the subject of a male’s insecurities. “I’m Feeling Love” is maybe the best track of the album. 


This addictive chorus led song has a spiritual meaning of living life to the fullest. “Because I love my life I've been feeling more than blessed Even through the hardest times I thank God for my few friends.” is a standout line. 


As the album reaches its second half, the introspective has reached its apex here. “My Walk” continues on Saadiq living life to the fullest. While plenty of the songs such as Glory To The Veins and Riker's Island ranges influences from his Gospel roots and even the avant-garde sound of Kendrick LAmar’s To Pimp A Butterfly. (who also appeared on the album) Rikers Islands focus on the over abundance of African American men in prison and questions the true justice that people look for. 

 Jimmy Lee is a masterful work that closes out 2019. Despite the tragedy that surrounds it, the former Tony Toni Tone frontman proves he hasn’t missed a step and brings us a bold album in his discography.

SPOTLIGHT: Skinny Hardaway





With the work ethic of an industry vet Memphis artist Skinny Hardaway has been staying busy as usual since releasing his 1st project “Draft Day” late in 2017 followed up by his 2nd and 3rd projects “Never Again” and  “Draft Day 2” released in 2018. You can grab all 3 on Spinrilla.
Hardaway dropped a surprise EP “NBA” Never Be Average in June bringing his catalog up to 4 solo projects, 5 if you count the mixtape him and fellow Memphis up & coming artist (King XX) released in 2019.

Hip Hop is a culture and art movement that began in the Bronx in New York City and Skinny is working hard to keep it alive, which is not an easy task in a oversaturated industry.
Skinny also boosted his reputation as an independent artist performing and hosting his own shows in numerous venues in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and many more locations.
Recently in the lab recording a new single with Memphis legend Kia Shine and fellow Hope Grind & A Dream (HGD) associate Dope Lhadii he stays busy perfecting his craft.
He caught the attention of a Interscope records A&R and had a meeting, in his words the meeting was “Real productive”.
Skinny is in a lane of his own as a lyricist and his magnetic personality and stage presence completes the package.
