Welcome to my first concert review! For those who don’t know who I am, I’m Ebony Dionne. I’m an alumni DJ here at WUSC and my show is Holla If Ya Hear Me, which is a Hip Hop and R&B show on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. But enough about me and onto the review. So, I went to see Vedo at The Senate on Oct. 28 with my cousin, sister, and brother-in-law. A little background on Vedo, he’s an indie R&B singer and is best known for his YouTube covers aka V-Mix’s of popular songs. But, he was also a contestant on season four of The Voice and was coached by Usher. He’s a songwriter and has written songs for a wide range of artists such as SHINee, EXO, Chris Brown, Usher, and August Alsina just to name a few. He got attention with his viral hit “You Got It” in 2020, and was a featured backup singer for Usher during his Tiny Desk Concert performance last year, which got a lot of positive buzz and acclaim.

Now I’m a big fan of covers, especially of my favorite Hip Hop and R&B tracks. I first got big into covers from singers who posted on YouTube. Singers like William Singe, Alex Aiono, Kiana Ledè, and Queen Naija, just to name a few. I just loved how they could make an already popular song even better with their own style.
Hey, y’all! So, this week’s playlist I wanted it to be all about the feel good jams. Because feel good music can be a wide range of things. It can be mellow and smooth, like the feeling of riding in your car with the top down. Or it can be full of energy and fun, like the feeling of getting ready to go out (or staying in, in our case).
Well, this week’s playlist is inspired by the celebration of my birthday (which is today!!). You know it’s always about the turn up when it comes to birthdays. Given this awesome occasion, I gathered my top turn up songs that gets me in a birthday mood.
This week’s playlist I decided to go the love route. I wanted to just give everybody the feels. So, you know me, I’m giving you old school and new school love with mostly R&B with a splash of Hip Hop.
I was introduced to Hip Hop at an early age by my dad. It was mostly West Coast at first, specifically Tupac. Then, I fell in love with it and delved into it more and did my own research. I discovered so many artists, sounds, flows, lyricists, etc. I realized how important and impactful Hip Hop can be (both back in the day and today). It can have a message, be a party anthem, or even be silly.
