Fresh off of her appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Stacey Ryan stopped by to talk to Demi Ramos.
The Montreal singer-songwriter's career has taken off over the past couple of years. She scored a viral hit with "Don't Text Me When You're Drunk." Ryan followed that up with "Fall in Love Alone," her biggest song to date. The original and sped-up versions have over 100 million Spotify streams.
In this episode, Ryan and Ramos talk about Ryan's rise in the music industry, her upcoming tour with Jake Wesley Rogers, and how she takes care of herself with such a busy schedule. Watch the interview and stream Ryan's latest single "Over Tonight" below.
Meet Claire Reneé, a multi-talented singer-songwriter, dancer and esteemed wellness advocate.
Known for her soul-bearing lyricism and expressive vocals, Claire Reneé has just unveiled a nine-track body of work called Wings. The collection of songs is a mesmerizing union of neo-soul, pop, and jazz in which the artist delivers a sincere and heartfelt reflection on the beauty and challenges that characterize loving relationships.
Claire confides, "The human experience encompasses lots of different emotions. There may be some anger, sadness, clarity, visits from spirit guides and even epiphanies. We lead out by honoring that we want to change or see change in our lives. That includes doing work on ourselves, while reminding ourselves we will always push through and even find our Wings. Getting to the other side brings light and even empathy to the very same ones who hurt you, couldn't show up for you, or wronged you in the past."
The first track, "Honey," is an honest and heartfelt song about true connection and how beautiful love can be when we learn to appreciate each other's flaws and embrace our imperfect selves. Claire's sincere lyrics are combined with soulful, sultry vocals and soothing melodies, ultimately creating an atmosphere rich in imagination and dreamy vibes that take the listener on a journey to happier times.
Another highlight, "I'm Tired," is about letting go of the people that don't serve your higher good. Saying goodbye to the friends and lovers that don't have your best interests in mind and who take you for granted is part of loving yourself, Renee implies. When you are constantly in a state of giving, without receiving much in return, you become tired. Again, Claire entrances her listeners with warm and emotive vocals, sensational jazz instrumentation, and chilled R&B infused melodies while delivering this impassioned message.
On another standout track called "Red Lights," the singer-songwriter reminds us all the importance of stillness. Through vibrant piano chords, genre-bridging soundscapes and '90s-inspired hip hop beats, "Red Lights" is all about capturing the moments of peace that can be found in all of us.
Wings is an ambitious effort for an up-and-comer, and Claire Renee thoroughly succeeds in captivating listeners with her undeniable authenticity and unique fusion of musical styles. Take a listen to Wings now and drift into solace.
If you've ever paused in life for a moment and imagined how the exhilarating pangs and longings of a blossoming new love might sound in music, your mind might conjure something like "Never Before."
"Never Before" is a sophisticated and tender love song created by singer/songwriter Hayley Sales and icon/actress Sharon Stone.
On "Never Before," Hayley Sales effortlessly expresses a lover's sentiments in a timeless and elegant style, making this a beautifully crafted love letter that will resonate deeply with hopeless romantics looking to embark on an unforgettable journey.
"Cause I like it like never before. Oh, I want more. Just a little more," Sales sings as she brings forth passion and longing in every syllable. Hayley's distinctive vocals — a synthesis of jazz, soul, and classic pop styles — are smooth and soft, inviting you to feel the weight of the singer's quiet and profound emotions. Rich piano keys flow gracefully alongside the singer's vocals, and strings add a layer of intensity, longing, and desire. The instrumentation is beautifully arranged, being both purposeful and airy with an element of jazz that feels abstract and expressive.
This is the duo's first collaboration. Sharon Stone and Hayley Sales wrote "Never Before" after bonding over a shared love of romance and classic love ballads. Hayley Sales is an American-Canadian pop/soul singer-songwriter and actress who is known for her exceptional piano skills and honest lyricism. Hayley's piano and heartfelt songwriting, paired with Sharon's captivating imagery, makes them an unforgettable pair.
The single's video finds Batiste attempting to woo a young woman at an art gallery when suddenly a painting depicting a 1930s party comes to life.
As Stephen Colbert's charismatic bandleader, Jon Batiste is no stranger to commanding our attention.
The soulful crooner just released a spritely new single on Friday titled "I Need You," a bouncy and jubilant ode to the power of love in a time of crisis. The single is an infectious amalgamation of pop, swing music, and hip-hop, and Batiste's music video is as fun as the track itself.
The video finds Batiste attempting to woo a young woman at an art gallery when suddenly a painting depicting a 1930s party comes to life. What ensues is a lively and colorful dance party at the gallery, with the onlooking woman pleasantly surprised by Batiste's moves. "This song is a vibe cleanse. After 2020, this is like a warm hug," Batiste said of the single. "Let's bring the vibes back!" Check out the video below, and be sure to not miss out on Batiste in SOUL.

Cats are polarizing. Non-cat people vehemently despise the entire species, readily listing the wrongs done to them and loved ones by felines. Meanwhile, cat people feel just as strongly, and are ready to tell you all the ways their cat is smarter, better, prettier, and more fun to be around than you'll ever be. But whether you love them or hate them, you have to admit there isn't anything much better than a funny cat video. So you don't have to waste your time filtering all the non-cat content out of your newsfeed, we've compiled a list of our favorite funny cat videos.
Cat Jump Fail with Music: Sail by AWOLNATION
First of all, "Sail" by AWOLNATION is an absolute banger under any circumstances. Second of all, this sneaky boi looks like he'll set your house on fire and laugh while it burns. Third, and finally, what an incredibly bad jump.
Cats vs Zombies
We love a high budget production, talented feline actors, and tasteful machine gun use. Most of all, we love cats in funny little vests committing graphic acts of violence. We hope the creator of this video has found the help he needs.
Official Video: Cat Bath Freak Out -Tigger the cat says 'NO!' to bath
This cat is not happy about bath time, and eerily screams "NO!" over and over again. Inexplicably, instead of calling an exorcist, the owners of the cat continue to laugh, ignoring the fact that Lucifer himself is emerging from the mouth of their furry friend.
Surprised Kitty (Original)
This video of a small kitten throwing it's paws up in surprise has gained almost 80 million views on Youtube. We have to wonder if the person to post this now famous 30 second clip had any idea of the cultural impact their kitten would have.
While this boxing cat's behavior almost certainly indicates a feline neurological disorder and not an understanding of human sports concrete enough to generate imitation, it's pretty funny anyway. We're pretty sure he'd lose a boxing match though, he's pretty small.
The Savitsky Cats: Super Trained Cats Perform Exciting Routine - America's Got Talent 2018
We aren't sure if these talented cats are funny or just disturbing, but either way they're undeniably entertaining. And fluffy. Look at their little paws. We'd like to believe that the cats actually trained the two women, not the other way around.

Layers of blues, Americana, and pop-rock.
Austin-based musician, actor, and director Jeff Hortillosa drops his EP, The Horticulture Vol. 1 as a companion to his new film War Monkey.
The Horticulture, Vol. 1
Jeff calls his sound "Horticulture," explaining it's "cultivated from bizarre jazz chords, passages of pastoral folk, raunchy roots-rock, buck-toothed Southern funk, and even strains of World music." Highlights include the swamp-flavored "Jesus Christ," the grungy garage-rock tones of "Millionaire," and the jangly pop-rock-infused cover of Pink Floyd's "Us And Them."
