It’s Monday and since I accomplished nothing this weekend except sleep, I am gearing up for a productive week of editing, writing and meeting deadlines. I woke up this morning with a massive load of energy, so I thought why not channel it with something loud and bumping. When I first heard this song at a friend’s house, I thought it was Missy making another grand debut. This is definitely a club banger and a great jump start to my Monday. Dancer and rapper Chonique Sneed hails from the city of LA. She is affiliated with the Millennium Dance Complex that is home to some of the best dancers on the West Coast.

If the song itself doesn’t force you to get up, the moves in the video will definitely have you unleashing your own “You Got Served” moves.

While obviously not a black girl, Kastle has dominated the house tech genre of music with cool remixes and mixes in the underground world. I woke up this morning feeling a little out of it and I needed something to get me dancing as I got ready to start my day which usually consist of sitting in the new Starbucks in my city and writing or at my dining room table getting some stories done.

You may recognize this from Kelis’s “Milkshake” Hope you like it as much as I do and get to dancing! Happy Monday.

It’s Monday and I don’t have work today, but for those of you who do, I definitely feel your pain on the Monday Blues. No matter what day it is, I can’t seem to sleep past 8am and am I the only one who felt this weekend literally flew by? It was JUST Friday. Anyhow, I thought I would start my day with a lovely classic from the beautiful Eartha Kitt. May your day be filled with productivity and lots of energy and good vibes. C’est si bon (It is so good).

Eartha Kitt is a really inspirational figure in my life. I’ve always admired her ability to speak 9 languages fluently. I’ve admired her since of Wanderlust having spent most of her life in other countries. She was an activist during the civil rights movement and was very vocal in addressing her issues with America. She was definitely a gem.
