Drake finally releases the video for "Take Care" and also released the video for the song "HYFR" featuring Lil Wayne.  The video features RiRi & Drake holding and embracing one another intimately.  Imagery included a bull, a fish and a bluejay.  Not sure what it means but the visuals are very artistic.



The video for "HYRF" features actual footage from his Bar Mitzvah!  Take a look at the video!

Credit is a vital and important part of a person's financial life.  Your credit score can be based on a number of factors ranging from paying your bills on time, what types of credit cards you have, ratio of debt to income and other variables.  Things that can hurt your credit score are being behind on your credit card bills inaccuracies, having to much debt, having accounts over the credit limits and so on.   These are just a few examples on how complicated credit can get.  Don't let this overwhelm you, though.  If you have a low credit score, there are some things you can do to help improve your credit score:

Register with a Credit Monitoring Service.   This can help you keep a handle on your credit all the time.  There are many advantages to doing this.  It can help monitor your credit reports on a constant basis.  For instance, if you would be alerted on any changes on your files or if any negative information is reported by credit bureaus.  It can also help protect you against identity theft.  If you go this route, look for companies with a stellar background.  Some of the credit agencies offer this service.  You can look further into the service on their website.

Alecia Keys Got That Vibe

Alicia Keys Got That Vibe



Normally a very private person, Alicia Keys Covers Vibe April's edition.  She looks fierce on the cover and gets very candid in her interview:  The magazine released a short piece from the article:


It’s probably not a coincidence that Alicia Keys and her husband, Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean, are wearing matching pants. His: expertly tailored and trim, skimming his sneakers just so. Hers: a sexy waxed denim that hugs her in all the right places. Both are the color of a well-made cappuccino. They’ve agreed to be interviewed together over dinner, a double date of sorts. It’s one of those novel ideas cooked up by magazine editors, but Keys, who seems more open now than she’s ever been, was keen to participate. And what better way to convey closeness than with his-and-her trousers.

But spend a couple of hours with them drinking cocktails that taste like tropical fruit juice, and it’s clear they don’t need color-coordinated outfits to get the point across. He’ll tug at the sleeve of her coat to help her shimmy out of it. Her hand will rest sweetly on his thigh. They’ll talk about their partnership in a way that says, “We want the whole world to have what we have,” and they’ll do it by telling you about the moment when they knew they were soul mates.

“It was the craziest thing,” says Dean, leaning forward in his chair. “We had a work lunch with some people, and I get home and look in the back pocket—”

“My credit card was in his pocket,” Keys finishes the story, eyes wide. “Why was my credit card in his pocket?”

One explanation might be that he’d grabbed it by accident when they split the check, but that would be too prosaic. They saw the credit card debacle as a sign, the first of many. Well, second, if you count the time, 14 years ago, when they first met and Dean tried unsuccessfully to get her number from his friend. “It wasn’t our time yet,” he says with a smile.

Maybe it’s the swanky lighting, the buzz from the booze or simply the glow thattends to bounce off of famous people, but now definitely seems to be their time. And hers, especially. At 31, Keys is among the best-selling recording artists of all time. She’s released five albums, won 14 Grammys and sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. She’s now working on her sixth album, and yet she appears relaxed, approachable, easy-breezy. Of course, she’s sort of always seemed that way, even all the way back in 2001, when she was a new artist with plenty of Harlem swag (Keys’ roots are from Hell’s Kitchen, N.Y.) promoting her first album, Songs in A Minor. But let her tell it and this is the first time in her life when she feels comfortable in her own skin. It’s the pay off, she says, for making difficult choices, personally and professionally.

“Let’s just say I’ve been very uncomfortable,” she’d said a few days earlier, curled up on a squishy red sofa in a recording studio. “I’ve been brave enough to be uncomfortable.”


The issue comes out April 16, 2012.
