Babyface To Host A Waiting to Exhale Mother’s Day Special on Instagram

During an appearance on The View, Babyface announced he is hosting a live Instagram Special for Mother’s Day. He will be playing songs from the soundtrack, Waiting to Exhale. The classic 90’s album was produced entirely by him. Songs included are Sittin’ Up in My Room by Brandy, Let it Flow by Toni Braxton, Not Gon’ Cry by Mary J. Blige, as well as Shoop by Whitney Houston.

I thought this would be great, Mother’s Day, to play the Waiting to Exhale album, and to tell stories-tell how it all happened and talk about the artists and stuff and it would be fun to do…because that was half the fun of it all-In doing the Instagram Live was that being able to tell stories and tell things people were so interested in that. So I thought it would be fun to do as well.


Every single song on that album is a hit! I play it at least once every other week.

Babyface also spoke about his recovery from the Coronavirus, the infamous Instagram Battle against Teddy Riley, as well as new music in the works. See the full interview below:

#FreshMeatFreshBeats | Jairus McClinton

Meet singer and songwriter, Jairus McClinton.

Jairus is an up-and-coming singer from Memphis, Tennessee. The Westwood native realized his singing abilities in church around the fourth grade. Later when asked to audition for his school’s Christmas play, he realized that he had a raw talent for performance as well. 

What is the craziest thing that has happened to you while you were performing on stage?
The craziest thing that has happened to me would be when I completely forgot the words to my own song in the 8th grade and had to freestyle the whole entire performance. Gladly everyone loved it but I was sweating big bullets and winging it the whole time. I didn’t quit though and that was when I knew I had the drive in me to do this for life.

Jairus started his songwriting journey in elementary school by copying down the lyrics to popular songs just to see how the words were patterned. By the time he was in the sixth grade, he started writing his own songs.

Fresh Meat, Fresh Beats: Young Quael

If A Tribe Called Quest, Common, Mos Def and Big Sean morphed into a “Super Rapper,” Young Quael would be the manifestation of this smooth combination. You get the jazz feel in his beats, the consciousness and  love in his lyrics, and the smooth metaphors rolling off of the tip of his tongue…

Marquael Green aka Young Quael is a fresh new talent born in Atlanta, Georgia with a love for music. When it comes to the driving force behind his lyrics, Quael says it’s the “life and love for my music. Music is a connection of the mind, body, and soul. It captures every feeling.”
His new mixtape, #CollegeCampusCrazzy is available on Datpiff.com. You can also listen to it here as well.
To see him live you can catch him performing at different showcases near or at Tennessee State University in Nashville, TN where he is also an engineering student.
Smart and smooth hmmmm…
