STORi - "Just Another Day"

image via artists facebook

I'm taking a late pass on this one as I'm just hearing of New Jersey singer/songwriter STORi. Recently signed to Motown/Universal this emerging talent dropped this reworking of Queen Latifah's "Just Another Day" to a self propelled 16k+ listens and counting.

STORi is an interesting talent. Flipping through her online catalog I gather that she hasn't truly defined herself as an artist but she's got a "laurynhill-ish" appeal. She hops back and forth between rapping and singing with ease and is quite smooth at both. I can't wait to hear her on a full project.

In the meantime, I'll be vibing to "Just Another Day." Check the stream and download below.

EXCLUSIVE: Livewire feat. Joe Budden - "Winning"


Can you dig it? CAN YOU DIG IT? Caaaaan yooooou dig ehhhhhhhht!

Premiering right here on RoxFontaine.com is the latest music video from, "ya favorit," Livewire titled "Winning!" Joining him on this insane DG produced track is Jersey Joe Budden. Though Joe is now signed to a major deal with Slaughterhouse, he and Livewire still are two of the independent scene's most dynamic artists.

This video is the result of a huge investment of time and effort. I brought you the audio in September of last year and now we finally have the video. Based on the cult classic film "The Warriors" Livewire teamed up with director Ashley Smith of Smith Hage Productions to deliver his biggest production yet. It was well worth the wait! Check it out below.
