“Introspection” is her second video project, followed by the EP called “Love Language”. In this production, UMI displays her music in another way, less fictional and more pragmatical, with tangible events that occur in everyday lives. In addition to the message, UMI released this work of hers at the beginning of summer, a season known for its freedom and solar beauty.

I’m becoming more and more numb when it comes to romantic love. … Continue reading MyCrynicles by Juvenile Studio: the web series we all need it to catch up on
Dear readers, We don’t need only and exclusively social protests, political movements or even a whole month to remind us what a wonderful thing is having a Black heritage. African-American culture and African descendent traditions should be celebrated and considered everyday. Western societies – especially the USA – should recognize celebrations like Black History Month, remember Juneteenth in June and Kwanzaa in December, and personalities like Wangari Maathai (Nobel Prize winner), Sister Rosetta Tharpe (rock ‘n roll pioneer), and Alice Coachman (first African American woman to win a Gold Medal at the Olympics). A lot of Brown and Black girls, … Continue reading Being the new and fresh Black Carrie Bradshaw: a conversation with Jamé Jackson
