The track currently has over one million plays on YouTube. So for this week's edition of The Mogul Minute #GetTurntTuezdayz let's head to Columbus, Ohio. Elliott Trent is a producer, singer, songwriter, and engineer. His project "Apollo" gained a lot of attention on social media as well as his single track releases on Soundcloud. Elliott just released his latest track "Passcode" yesterday. Elliott is young and he definitely deserves this spot on The Mogul Minute #GetTurntTuezdayz .

THE MOGUL MINUTE : INFORMATION IS POWER AND BEYONCE JUST SLAYED, OKAY !! ( THE MOGUL GIRL) #FORMATION
Political activist, scholar, and author Angela Davis once said "Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation". Beyonce's new song and video "Formation" is not just art. The song sends a very strong message that high lights women's rights, injustice against minorities, and financial freedom. Of course Queen B always surprises us. Remember when she released her "Beyonce" album in 2013? She made the world stop and Yonce has done it again. Her song/video "Formation" released on TIDAL a day before her Pepsi Superbowl Halftime performance. Her progressive art has gained a lot of buzz and a lot of conversation. Beyonce's video featured her beautiful daughter Blu Ivy , the voice of Messy Mya ( whom was shot and killed by police, at the age of 22) and rapper Big Freedia. In the New Orleans based video . Some of her scenes depict the devastation of Hurricane Katrina , Mardi Gras, a young black child in a hoodie dancing, a sign that says stop shooting us, a newspaper displaying Martin Luther King which reads "More Than A Dreamer" , and her on top of a police car. She and her dancers payed homage to the Black Panthers as they dressed in all black leather and berets with their fist in the air. Beyonce's performance was super and she used her artistic abilities and platform to propel people toward social emancipation as Angela Davis said. For those of you that don't know what social emancipation it's the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation. Beyonce speaks on working hard, grinding until she owns it. So let's get in formation ( which means together) and get information (because knowledge is power) . After Beyonce's performance at the Superbowl she announced her "The Formation World Tour". l am so excited and I can't wait to see her show in Philadelphia June 5,2016. Get your tickets (here) and watch the "Formation" video below.

THE MOGUL MINUTE : IT'S HER #uRIHverse RIHANNA DOES THINGS HER OWN WAY DARLIN #ANTI ALBUM ( THE MOGUL GIRL)
Woo! Finally Rihanna's eighth studio album "ANTI" is here . The Navy went crazy the other day when Rihanna posted a selfie wearing Dolce & Gabbana x Frends golden crowned headphones with the caption "Listening to ANTI". This definitely set social media on fire . Then yesterday she released her single "Work" featuring Drake . Everyone was jamming out to the upbeat-spunky track and what a surprise she released the full "ANTI" album last night on TIDAL. Since it's release the album has been streamed over 13 million times. ( Round of applause and a twerk for Rih-Rih) . "ANTI" is very edgy, groovy, original, daring, animated, and hypnotic. Her features SZA and Drake are great choices and the beats are blazing. The vibes on this 13 track project range from somber, to Yeah I Said It , to straight fierce and savage unapologetic boldness. Although Rihanna is straight forward ANTI has a mysterious addictive flavor. ANTI takes us a little higher into Rih's #uRIHverse. Her voice is sultry, spicy, strong, and classically sexy. I'm definitely loving that she went against all the rules and did things her own way darlin. #ANTI has it's own direction and the NAVY definitely got the message and the navy definitely approves.
What are your favorite tracks on #ANTI so far?

THE MOGUL MINUTE : I THINK WE'VE ALL FELT LIKE JOELLE AT ONE POINT - WISH I NEVER VIDEO - ( THE MOGUL GIRL )
Currently I just finished some writing and I'm auto- streaming videos on YouTube. All of a sudden this captivating and lovely voice starts playing through my Beats By Dre . I open the screen to see this gorgeous lady by the name of Joelle. Her voice is A-1. The lyrics to this song are so deep. She's singing about regretting a past love and wanting to take back the time she spent with them and not ever loving them. However even though she acts like she doesn't care, in a way she still cares. Have you been in a situation when you wanted to take back your love and you felt like you made a mistake? Have you ever just wanted to delete that person from your life, memory, and heart but their presence still lingers ? Wow! This song is engaging and genuine. I'm rooting for this girl right here. Huge shout out to you Joelle.
Great sound. Watch her video for "Wish I Never" below and stay tuned to her social media for updates on her album.
