You need A.K.U.A.

Here is the brand new video of Montreal's own AKUA. I first met her while she was performing at the cute lil' Dépanneur Café on Bernard street while my cousins and i were having brunch. I was mesmerized. Her unique sound, her unique beauty. Her sweet quiet powerful charisma. I filmed her immediately. Had to had something to prove i had not dreamed this candy for my soul Now, after touring as a background singer with Solange, i guess some fancy video people were smart enough to see the gem she is and now we are blessed with a video at the level of her ...

Sleep with the greatest

I just came back from a sweet little few days in Miami and, of course, i went shopping. It wasn't Art basel or anything but i got myself a Picasso. Not the usual kind, no.

Badu for Givenchy

I've never been a big fan of brands using celebrities for their campaign...especially when it's the high-end ones using underground or hip-hop artists to gain some "street-cred" shamelessly. Daft-Punk for Saint Laurent made me barf, Rihanna for Balmain makes me feel nothing at all... but Badu for Givenchy?? So. Dope. As it doesn't feel like a giant planned marketing stunt for an over produced-shoved-in-our-ears-album (Daft-Punk khuum khuum), Givenchy also really respected Badu's unique style and made it work with their clothes.
