SQUAD THOUGHTS ON RHIAN
By now, you should be aware that The Squad loves music and we are not afraid to passionately express our discomfort with various forms of it. Two weeks ago, (Issue No. 21, 10/3) The Squad MC let it be known that rap music is outta control. What we didn't add to that piece are thoughts about R&B. We will get to that later, for now, it's time to celebrate. What happens when you find an artist that simply feels good to you? You don't know why, but when you hear their music - in your car, on your computer or chilling with your honey, boo, baby, dumpling, sugar, other-half or even a bad other half...all of sudden, your heart feels stronger, your fantasies entrap you in bliss, your mind is still...you get the chills and then OOOHH - you feel love.
RHIAN'S MUSIC WILL DO THAT FOR YOU...And that's on the real. This is the sound that you have been
searching for this summer. Make sure this is in your collection for fall, winter, spring and forever after. You may not know it right now, but we just may have a new superstar.
WE HEAR ABOUT IT FIRST&AND PASS IT ON TO YOU&
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, RHIAN BENSON
