Jimi Izrael and DJ Diva are back with a new mixtape for The Denzel Principle. I’m off vacation/work break to bring you a hot new mixtape. Jimi Izreal, the author of The Denzel Principle: Why Black Women can’t Find Good Black Men, reached out to me to fashion a new mix for him.
This Monday Mixtape is all about my birthday idol Mariah Carey. We all share a birthday with someone…and I do with Mariah! Mariah Carey has been an idol of mine for long time. We share the same birthday and although she is 4 years older than me..she has always provided me with the inspiration to follow my dreams.
This Monday Mixtape was a special request from one of my listeners. I put up a shoutbox for requests and Ebony so sweetly requested a mix of songs that inspire women. This was perfect timing because my birthday is Saturday and nothing makes an Aries feel better than some pump-me-up music.
I have to say that I had a great time putting this one together. I was going to do Disco but somehow it shaped up into a battle between Diana Ross and Donna Summer. Long before there was a Bey Bey and Rhi Rhi battle…there was the grown Diva battle between Diana and Donna. Disco was good for Diana’s emerging solo career and for the newcomer Donna’s breakout hits. The 70’s were good to these ladies so I included most of their fast hits!
Hey Everybody! It’s time for a new music mixtape again. I’m still playing the one I did in December (I said that last year too lol). March Madness Part 2. It should be called “Radio Friendly” because a lot of these songs are being played on the radio right now.
This week”s Monday Mixtape is a request by @Eb_the_Celeb. A few months back she requested a 90’s girl mix. I tried to include many of the girl groups and collabos that were quite popular in 90’s R&B.
It’s time for Cupid’s Hunt again! 2010 and this is my third year doing it!
Well I’ve actually been down since the beginning..when it was just a few of us…now we have over 30 participants! I’m so excited about us joining in to do this collaboration across so many different websites.
This week’s Monday Mixtape is dedicated to my sister and BEST FRIEND Divalicious. It’s full of her favorite ladies from the 80’s!!! It was her 40th birthday and although I wasn’t able to celebrate in person with her in Memphis, she knows I was there in spirit. She is my very best friend.
This mixtape is a step out of the box. Jimi Izrael contacted me and requested that I do a mixtape for the release of his new book “The Denzel Principle”.
This was a new experience for me..I took his selected readings…read by the Dizzle himself and laid them over popular instrumentals. I took some of the most recent R&B and hip hop songs and placed them between the tracks.
I usually start of the year with a Prince Mix so I’m a week behind for all you stans out there!
For this mix I decided to combine some off-the-wall Prince songs combined with some of my favorites from his obscure albums. I also threw in a few of my favorite B-Sides for you too.
I love Prince and I love yall…so here you go!
