The dark shadow to the demise of a relationship doesn't always lie between the two people dating. Many times it’s the opinions, thoughts, and manipulative ways of close friends that can take your man or females mind in other directions. Men and women often look to their closest associates or friends to vent or share their personal issues, but what if that advice is purposely misguided. When your friends should be there to guide you in the right direction they become the dark shadow that follows the relationship to its end. Let's talk about it with the lovely ladies of O.W.W.H.H.!
(dealing with them (INTERNAL), covering them up(EXTERNAL), exposing them to the world, sharing them with a loved one-significant other/family)
We all know the world is full of imperfection, and yet many people try to cover their imperfections with false confidence, surgery, medication, or other means of camouflage. No matter what any of us say or how confident we exude ourselves to be when it comes to being comfortable with our body image, personality, or otherwise there is always something we secretly want to improve. Women have this issue more so than men especially because women face criticism by means of media, society, and personally including relationships. You'll never see a man turn to another and ask, "Do I look fat in these pants?" But that doesn't mean men are invulnerable to insecurities, no matter how much they like to think so.
Women are upfront about their fears, doubts, and self-esteem. Some may think of it as compulsive gabbiness, a quirk of the fairer sex, but in fact, it is an admirable coping mechanism that can come across to some as a bit courageous. Just because men don't talk about their insecurities doesn't mean they don't have them. The most common of insecurities in men besides their physical appearance is income, material gain such as a expensive cars/homes etc., relationships, and even their (whispers) "friend down under". Both sexes young and old face challenges when it comes to overcoming insecurities, and at times it can hinder our growth as individuals personally and romantically.
Image is important to everyone, and having a natural confidence about something we find to be an "eyesore" or unattractive to others is hard to obtain. For us average individuals who can't look to a "quick fix" by means of wealth; learning to live with these issues is easier said than done, but can our insecurities cost us more than we bargain by not truly loving ourselves for who we are or even overcompensating swaggering arrogance for bravery. Either way no one can perpetrate to the world a message for people to "Hate it or Love", forever, especially without knowing the answer themselves, but at some point we all have to face the music and look ourselves in the mirror.
All you have to do is listen to Lady once, and you’ll remember—in case you forgot—why they call it soul music. The honesty, the aching sweetness, the raw power of these singers and their songs will remind you that nothing can move you as much, or touch you as deeply, as two women with amazing voices singing in tight harmony.
Lady is the name of the group and of their first recording—the latest from Truth & Soul. Together Nicole Wray and Terri Walker make music that sounds a little like the songs your Mama loved best—and at the same time like nothing you’ve ever heard before.
Nicole, who’s from Atlanta and Terri, from England, met in New York City in 2009 and realized that their love of soul classics and the hip-hop of today would make for a new kind of record. They linked up with producers Leon Michels and Jeff Silverman, whose lushly-orchestrated, beat-heavy songs have showcased artists such as Adele, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Aloe Blacc, and Lee Fields.
Terri Walker has released four hit albums in the United Kingdom. Her debut was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Nicole Wray’s debut single, “Make It Hot,” was certified gold. She has been featured on singles by Missy Elliott, Cam’ron, the Black Keys, Kid Cudi, and many others.
Lady, Nicole and Terri’s first project together, unites the mellowness and pop flair of 60s soul with the driving beat of hop-hop, and the silky rhythms of modern R&B. These two powerful voices harmonize to create a fresh sound that tells the stories of growing up and never giving up, of love and friendship, of yearning and losing, bad girls and good hearts.
Lady is an authentic original, drawing from the past to infuse the present with new power. In one of the album’s most touching songs, “Sweet Lady”, a loving tribute to their moms and to strong women everywhere, they sing, “Take my hat off to my mother, / such a sweet lady. / There will never be another one like you.”
Prepare to take your hat off to Lady. Get ready to fall in love. There has never been, there will never be, anything like it before.

Artist Review: Lyfe Jennings
The revolution of positive music was bound to happen and Lyfe Jennings welcomes the change with open arms. With his authentic, soulful voice, innovative lyrical style and undeniable talent, Lyfe is ready to establish an even deeper connection with his fans and garner new ones with his latest effort.
The platinum selling soul singer/songwriter/producer is poised for success with his anticipated album Lyfe Change. Highlights on the 14-track album include collaborations with Wyclef Jean, Snoop Dogg and T.I., as well as Grammy nominated producers, Jerry “Wonda” Duplessis, The Underdogs and Rich Keller. “I’m considered to be an R&B cat because I'm a soul singer, but I also enjoy rock, jazz, and all kinds of music,” Lyfe admits. “I'm a musician. I'm not in a box. That’s what I hate about categories. People put you into one and dare you to come out!”
Lyfe had fun making this album, experimenting with different genres and taking his time to craft a beautifully sonic, expressive album. “My music has always been positive, touching people socially and emotionally,” he says. “But I named this album Lyfe Change because this time I wanted to take it a step further and invoke people to make a change in their lives and in the lives of others. That's how we'll change the world, one life at a time.
Chester "Lyfe" Jennings, a native of Toledo, Ohio, transformed the music world in 2004 after the release of his critically acclaimed debut Lyfe 268-192. Hailed as gritty and raw, the album created devoted fans everywhere and sold over a million copies. With brutally honest lyrics and dynamic live performances, Lyfe walked listeners down his turbulent road, giving them an edgy autobiographical history lesson that made him relatable.
