Last night Hot 97 held their annual Hot For The Holidays Concert at The Prudential Center in New Jersey and trust me it was the perfect way to kick off the holidays. The sold out show started with a bang as singer/actor Rotimi hit the stage for a quick performance of single ‘Want More’ which definitely got the stage & crowd hot just in time for rising rap star Tee Grizzley to take over and do his thing. Up Next was Harlem’s own Dave East who rocked the crowd as fans sang along to some of his fan favorite tracks like his latest single ‘Perfect’. Now if that wasn’t enough rap star Yo Gotti took over the stage and brought his Memphis flavor to the show which got the fans hyped as he performed some of his smash hits like ‘Down In The DM’ & ‘Rake It Up’.

Up Next was NYC’s own Cardi B who definitely represented The Bronx to the fullest. The Breakout Love & Hip Hop star set the stage on fired backed by 2 dancers as she performed her hits ‘Foreva’ , ‘Lick’ , ‘Motor Sport’ , ‘No Limit’ and her Billboard smash ‘Bodak Yellow’. From that moment on it was clear that some of rap finest ladies were going to take over the show. BX Rap diva Remy Ma hit the stage with a vengeance as she performed some of her classic cuts like ‘Lean Back’ and ‘Conceited’ before bringing out Rap Legend Fat Joe to do their hit singles ‘All The Way Up’ & ‘Money Showers’. Now it was clear that Remy still had her latest single ‘Wake Me Up’ to perform so it was only right that she brought out rap icon Lil Kim for some help with the record. The two rap divas could’ve clearly closed the night as Kim performed some of her classic cuts like ‘Queen Bitch’ , ‘ Big Mamma Thing’ , ‘Quiet Storm’ & ‘Lighters Up’ but there was still some more heat on the way.

Superstar Chris Brown was up next and as expected the stage from here or not was never the same. The r&b heartthrob had the ladies screaming as soon as he stepped on the stage without even singing a note which was a clear indication that tonight he was the one everyone was waiting for. Chris did what he did best and commanded everyone’s attention with his electrifying high energy stage show backed by 8 dancers. Although his set was only 30 minutes , he still made fans feel like it was his own personal concert as he cranked out hit after hit including tracks like ‘Ayo’ , ‘Show Me’ ,’Party’ , ‘Yo’ , ‘Wet’ , ‘Loyal’ , ‘Questions’ , ‘Tempo’ & more. Honestly the show could’ve ended there but Hot 97 had more in store as rap star 21 Savage hit the stage to close out the special holiday concert. Once again NYC’s best station for Hip-Hop and R&B outdid itself with another jam packed concert that had everyone on their feet for hours which is exactly why fans continue to come out every year. Unfortunately if you wasn’t there you have a few months before Summer Jam rolls around but for a limited time you can check out exclusive footage from last nights show to see exactly why everyone is still talking about it.

Last night we had the pleasure of attending 4x Grammy Award winning powerhouse Lalah Hathaway’s sold out concert at the legendary Highline Ballroom , and from the beginning of the show we clearly knew why she packed the house out. The soulful singer kicked off her set with her latest single ‘Honestly’ which is also the title of her new album that she celebrated all night throughout her show. Lalah performed some of her new cuts like ‘ I Can’t Wait’ and ‘Mirror’ but what constantly makes her win over the crowd is her incredible covers of classics like ‘Summertime’ , ‘Angel’ & ‘Rapture’. Ms Hathaway is a true musician who uses her voice as an instrument to captivate every listener as she sings effortlessly into the mic. But just when we thought we had enough she performs her fan favorite hit ‘Forever, For Always , For Love’ which brought the house down and as fans thought the show was over her encore performance of ‘Something’ was simply breathtaking. Now as the daughter of the late & great icon Donny Hathaway, its sometimes scary to see & hear his influence on her through her vocal performance but that’s what makes her great because she still knows how to stand out on her own. Please do yourself a favor and see this women in concert if you haven’t already, i promise you its one show you wont regret.

Last night we had the pleasure of watching British breakout superstar Jessie J take over NYC as she closed out her sold out R.O.S.E Tour held at Le Poisson Rouge. The intimate venue was jam packed with fans ,friends & media who have been waiting to see the sultry vocal powerhouse make her return to the stage after a brief absence. With a line wrapped around the block to see the shining star , it was clear that this show was the only place to be if you live in NYC. The soulful songstress hit the stage with a vengeance as if she hasn’t missed a beat and like the true performer that she is she gave us one hell of a show as she sang some of her fan favorite hits like ‘Who You Are’ , ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ , ‘ Mama Knows Best’ ,’Flashlight’ , ‘Masterpiece’ , ‘Thunder’ , ‘Price Tag’, ‘Bang Bang’ & ‘Do It Like A Dude’.

Now of course those songs were expected and she gave us everything we were waiting for but her performance of her new material was even more impressive. Jessie briefly told the crowd that she was stuck in a place of confusion and just didn’t want to perform or record any music but thankfully she met DJ Camper who helped inspire her to create again and what came from it , is truly brilliant. Jessie put her heart into records like ‘Real Deal’ , ‘Think About That’ & ‘Not My Ex’ which showed such growth in her already magnetic show which kept the fans wanting more. If this is any indication of whats to come on her anticipated third album ‘R.O.S.E’ then the world is in for one hell of a musical masterpiece. If your weren’t able to catch her this go around check out footage from the show which is only available for a limited time, but trust me after watching you wont ever miss out on a Jessie J show if she comes to your city.
