InAvator | Lil Nas X & DaBaby – Panini (Remix) (Columbia Records)

Just when you thought you were going to get the whistle sound out of your head, Lil Nas comes back hard for a second go round with Panini featuring Da Baby on the remix. The original pulled in 162.8 million streams, hit number one video on YouTube and Apple Music, just to name a few mind boggling facts. The collaboration between the two massive artists allows them to combine their fan bases that clearly target the same market. The sales are bound to explode on this dope track with a strategy like this behind it.

 

Rock and roll superstar Eddie Money dies at 70

A joke-telling rocker with a New York swagger and a heart of gold, Money recently revealed on his reality television series “Real Money” that he had esophageal cancer. The remaining five episodes of the show, in its second season on AXS TV, deal with his cancer.

“I thought I was just going in to get a checkup, and he told me I got cancer,” Money said in an episode that was taped in August and aired on Thursday.

Money said the news hit him “really, really hard” but that he decided to reveal the diagnosis because “I want to be honest with everybody.”

“Am I going to live a long time? Who knows, it’s in God’s hands. But you know what? I’ll take every day I can get. Every day above ground is a good day,” Money said.

Money was born Edward Joseph Mahoney on March 21, 1949, in Brooklyn, according to his website.

JANIVA MAGNESS SINGS JOHN FOGERTY

Refreshing, soulful and impressive. If you do John Fogerty, you better do it hot damn right and that’s exactly what Janiva Magness has done with “Change in the weather”.

Listening to the album took me back to my early youth when my Pop used to pick me up for his ball games in his pimped out all white VW Bug with the Rolls Royce grill. I remember John Fogerty’s Bad Moon Rising and Have you ever seen the rain pouring out the speakers.

Janiva Magness’ harmonized renditions were so well crafted that while listening, I scrambled to Youtube to compare them to the originals, the only twist I didn’t care for was the tempo change on “Have you ever seen the rain“, it changed the feel of the song a bit  to me. Particulars like this are minor and vary from song to song to song within great taste that compliments the original records.

Janiva’s production and deep voice put more of a country spin on Looking out my back door than even the original written by Fogerty and performed with CCR, but I LIKE IT.

Although you can’t really duplicate John Fogerty’s energy, another stand out track for me was “Fortunate Son”, Janiva Magness totally rocked it. I’m curious to see her stage presence and energy performing this live. Janiva Magness has a rare contralto voice completely absorbing my attention song for song on all 12 tracks.

Exploring Fogerty’s songbook is Magness’ 15th album release. Notably she is only the second woman, following blues giant Koko Taylor, to receive the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year award. It was presented to her at the Memphis ceremonies by King himself and Bonnie Raitt.

My personal rating for this release is 4 out of 5 stars, the countering factor being simply that remake’s are nice but you can never seamlessly duplicate the lustre of an original, otherwise an outstanding craftsmanship here. Only a few songs were covered here and I highly recommend that you go and listen to the entire release tomorrow, it’s worth the listen and a great way to kick the weekend off to a fabulous start.
