New Music Friday

New music on Friday is a guarantee. This weekend was full of new music. Ty Dolla $ign, Joyner Lucas, Dej Loaf & more.


R&B artist Ty Dolla $ign dropped an album “Featuring Ty Dolla $ign." The name is ironic because he is known for being the king of features. This album features Gunna, Young Thug, Future, Jhene Aiko, Roddy Ricch, Mustard, and others.


Dej Loaf finally dropped a new album “Sell Sole 2” The Detroit rapper is known for her hit single “Try Me” in 2014. She’s also collaborated with Future and Jacques to produce hits like “Hey There” “At The Club” and others.


My new artist discovery of the week is Joyner Lucas. He dropped a new album this Friday called “Evolution.”


COVID-19 updates

As the weeks continue, the number of new COVID-19 infections continues to increase. For the sixth straight week, the number of new infections has surged. In fact, every day an average of 59,000 new cases are reported.


The midwest has become the new epicenter for the virus. States like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois have been the most affected. As we enter the cold weather months, experts predict that numbers will only increase.


The United States is not the only country dealing with COVID-19.

This pandemic has affected everyone in the world. Although the coronavirus is a global issue, each country has handled the virus differently.


India

India the second country most affected by COVID-19 has finally begun to see a decrease in new infections. The national recovery rate has risen to 90 percent, but the coronavirus has opened the door to another issue, sex trafficking.


This pandemic has hit India’s economy hard, leaving many without jobs. Children are permitted to work in family businesses and nonhazardous places at the age of 14, but this pandemic has created a necessity for work which has caused a vulnerability for traffickers.


86 “alleged” traffickers have been arrested since the start of this pandemic.


Children are now working in factories and under conditions that they wouldn't normally work. This has reversed years of work India has done to correct their child labor laws.


Over 1,000 children “suspected” of being trafficked have been rescued in India over the past 6 months.

On my podcast HeavieTalk, I do a segment called

Thing That Had Me Like What


The point of the segment is to call out things I’ve seen, heard, or read about throughout the week on social media, in real life, and from others that had me like WTF!



The ultimate goal of HeavieTalk is to spread, truth, peace, and positivity, while also being informative, empowering, and educational.

Potential National Diaster

A potential catastrophic disaster is occurring currently in the Gulf of Paria. Since January 2019 an oil tanker carrying approximately 80 million barrels of oil is tilting at a 25-degree angle which could lead to an oil spile worse than Exxon Valdez in 1989.


Originally the goal was to offload the oil but the vessel has been stranded to prevent the risk of U.S sanctions.
