Love X Love by George Benson

“I remember the days when we never had a dime
And our dreams seemed a million miles away
But we made it, baby, facin’ the bad times with a smile
Here we are, and we’re growin’ stronger day by day

‘Cause we got love times love
It’s always there for us to share
And, girl, it sure feels good
To know you’re by my side…”

Diddy’s Opening Monologue at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards

“I’ve done a lot of growing and changing, evolving, I’m a frequency… I’m the vibe curator, the frequency elevator, Black brother thunder, the chocolate boy wonder. They call me Diddy but you can call me love.” ~Diddy



“I got away from my first love; never get away from your first love…biggest mistake… Don’t listen to the internet, none of that…stick with your first love…And I’m back to making music, y’all.” ~Diddy


I grew up in a large family that loved music and loved to dance. My mother loved Diana Ross & the Supremes, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Sam Cooke and others while my father loved B. B. King and the blues. Nevertheless, they always had a few songs that they enjoyed together by The Temptations among others.

B. Smyth aka. Brandon Smith

He started out his career by posting his own covers of popular songs on YouTube. His videos led him to performing at talent shows. His success at talent shows landed him a record deal with Motown in 2012. Smyth switched record labels from Motown to ByStorm Entertainment and RCA Records. His new single Twerkaholic Part 2 was released in October, 2022. On November 17, 2022, he died from pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease. In an earlier interview, Smyth said:


“There’s real talent here, real music and substance that’s going to set me apart from everyone else. I sing, I dance, and I write but I feel like my music is great and people are going to gravitate to it. People will see I’m not just a gimmick. I’m not a gimmick.” ~B. Smyth aka. Brandon Smith

There have been others but never two lovers like music—it’s music and me. Grab a song and come alone, you can sing your melody.

He Don’t Know Nothin’ Bout It—Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis & Babyface


Produced By Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis—Explore the hits, deep cuts, and hidden gems crafted by Jam & Lewis—58 Songs Curated by Amazon’s Music Experts


The duo was noted for early use of the Roland TR-808 drum machine, which was used in most of its early productions. After working with other artists such as Cherrelle and Alexander O’Neal, Jam and Lewis were introduced to Janet Jackson and produced her breakthrough album Control in 1986, for which the duo won a Grammy Award. Their collaboration on Janet’s next album, Rhythm Nation, proved even more successful. It became one of the top-selling albums in history with 4 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits.


Control by Janet Jackson featuring Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis


Since forming their music company Flyte Tyme in 1982, Jam & Lewis have earned more than 100 Gold, Platinum, Multi-Platinum and Diamond albums for their work with such artists as Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Yolanda Adams, Herb Alpert, New Edition, Human League, George Michael, Earth, Wind and Fire, TLC, Robert Palmer, Gwen Stefani and Kanye West.


In 1991, they founded a record label, Perspective Records—an A&M Records distributed label. A highlight for Perspective was the opportunity to release the soundtrack for the 1992 movie Mo Money. Executive produced by Jam & Lewis, the soundtrack featured cuts from Mint Condition, Ralph Tresvant (Money Can’t Buy You Love), Caron Wheeler, and a duet by Janet Jackson & Luther Vandross. They are among a handful of producers to have #1 records in three consecutive decades—1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. They have had 41 songs reach the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, and 31 in the top 10 in the U.K., and still going strong. In 2005, they opened their new recording studios in California, naming it Flyte Tyme West.


Money Can’t Buy You Love by Ralph Tresvant


Jam and Lewis worked on Ruben Studdard’s album, Love Is, and Johnny Gill’s Still Winning album. More hits as Producers were Pure Gold from Earth, Wind & Fire’s (2005) album, Illumination, and Higher Than This from Ledisi’s (2009) album, Turn Me Loose, among many others.


In 2020, Jam & Lewis were nominated with Sheila E. for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Direction for the TV special, Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince.

Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy aka P Diddy aka Diddy

Diddy is a Music Mogul, Record Producer, Record Executive, Rapper & Actor. He was born in NYC and attended Howard University. He became an intern and then worked as a talent director at Uptown Records. He later founded his own record label, Bad Boy Entertainment, as a joint venture with Clive Davis/Arista Records in 1993.

His debut album, No Way Out (1997) has been certified 7X platinum. His debut single, Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down, spent 28 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #1. The album produced 4 other singles—I’ll Be Missing You, a tribute to the Notorious B.I.G., It’s All About the Benjamins, Been Around the World, and Victory.


Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down feat. Mase & Biggie


In 2005, he announced that he was changing his name again. He would be calling himself Diddy. Fans didn’t know how to address him, leading to confusion. To this day, I will still refer to him as Puff Daddy, but then correct myself and call him Diddy.

In 2005, he sold half of his record company to the Warner Music Group. He was also named one of the 100 Most Influential People of 2005 by Time magazine.


Diddy launched a tour of Bad Boy Records’ biggest names to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the label. The Documentary Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story, covers behind-the-scene events.


In 2021, he was among the inaugural inductees into the Black Music and Entertainment Walk of Fame. In June 2022, he received the BET Lifetime Achievement Award.

Happy by Pharrell


Pharrell co-scored Despicable Me with composer Heitor Pereira, as well as wrote four songs for the film. He worked with Hans Zimmer and a number of other composers on the music for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Hidden Figures (2017), and wrote “It’s On Again,” performed by Alicia Keys and Kendrick Lamar.

The Love I Lost: Performed on Soul Train

“The love I lost was a sweet love. The love I lost was complete love. I will never, no, no, never love again. I can remember planning, building my whole world around you. I can remember hoping that you and I could make it on through, but something went wrong. We loved each other, we just couldn’t get along. Take a good look at me, I’m in misery can’t you see…the love, the love, the love I lost… I can’t remember nothing, no, no, no, but the good times we used to share…I’m sorry to say you go your way and I’ll go my way…”



Long Done Gone by Billy Currington

“Don’t worry, baby, sometimes things change; nothing we can do about it now no way. This doesn’t come easy but that’s just life. We can’t keep pretending everything’s alright. We told each other it was love before. The simple truth is it just ain’t no more. The bells stopped ringing, the music won’t play; the crazy little feeling just faded away…” Billy Currington

Johnnie Taylor

“One thing I can say about the people of the world today. They see you with a good thing, they want to take it away, but I believe in you, you believe in me, too. Even your best friends come around, making sly remarks trying to put you down… Listen, people talking trying to pull us apart, sticking pins and needles in both of our hearts. My love is together, don’t care about the stormy weather. I believe in you, you believe in me, too. I heard your mother say loving me didn’t make no sense, but when she put me down you stood up in my defense… We’ve had our hard times and almost didn’t make it, but we always worked it out and never tried to fake it…I believe I you…” ~Johnnie Taylor
