  • This is one of my favorite songs of the year, check out my guitar solo I wrote for it... it's what I would have added to the song if I had been in the studio if I had been there with Scribz!!!

  • What About Your Friends by TLC is 106 bpm, but I don't think Drake's Come Thru is. Come Thru is at like 82 bpm or 164 bpm. Sorry for being so picky, I was just listening to Drake's Come Thru and 106 bpm was just NOT making sense to me.

  • #DesmondDennis. I first heard of Khelani from Girls Trip credits that song "Thank You" was great. She had an amazing voice. Those vocals reminds of Desmond's "Grass Ain't Greener" cover.
