John Legend’s “Penthouse Floor”
Simply put - the latest from John Legend's "Penthouse Floor" featuring Chance The Rapper. This is the ‘official video.’ The song is from his album Darkness and Light. iTunes editors’s on the album: Sing what you know or sing what they want? Darkness and Light shows that John Legend knows the answer to that tricky question. The R&B singer wraps his magnificent voice around issues of the day, hearkening back to Curtis, Stevie, and Marvin. “I Know Better” speaks to that time, promising to use his voice for good. This mindset applies to slow jams—“Love Me Now,” “Overload,” and “What You Do To Me”—ringed with shades of pain. Producer Blake Mills (responsible for Alabama Shakes’ Sound and Color) fills the album with incredible, pulsating touches.

In the Yoruba pantheon, Ṣango is the ideal lover for Oshun as her fierce protector. Ṣango provides Divine and positive masculine energy to balance well with Oshun's Divine feminine energy. As part of coming to terms with the imbalance and challenges of modern relationships today, OSHUN searches for the Divine and positive masculine energy in this video.
Oshun is the "unseen mother present at every gathering", because she is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction. Manhattan-based vocalists Niambi Sala and Thandiwe sing and perform for the purpose of spreading her essence and the essences of her sisters, specifically Yemaya, through music. Together they are OSHUN, a duo characterized by yellow and blue (the colors of Oshun and Yemaya, respectively), soul, hip-hop, community service, and love.

Want spend thirty minutes in the Garden?
Often, we hear of conversations of inspiration with sistas about the Garden. Photographers are inspired by a sista’s presence and/or she is curious and inspired by the images in Pangea and this leads to discussions creating captures of afrosensual glamour, possibly as earthSistas. It takes a level of boldness to step in front of the camera, baring your natural beauty for the world to see. And such an action is not for everyone. But every woman should have the opportunity to explore her inner diva. Thirty Minutes in the Garden is a way to do that from an afrosensual perspective.
