Introducing Pop/R&B Sensation Celeste Buckingham | @CelBuckingham

Into the spotlight for which she was born steps a genuine diva. With musical wisdom that belies her youth, Celeste Buckingham seamlessly blends contemporary R&B, soul, hip-hop, and can rock a street corner jam just as easily as a sold-out stadium. Celeste has a hit on her hands, “Run Run Run”  Get ready to make your finger sore from hitting the replay button. Ears really do smile.

The name “The Pop Princess of Europe”, refers to Celeste’s powers “a gift”. Modestly glossing the endless hours she has spent honing them. Within the opening lines of her debut “Run, Run, Run“, Celeste lets us know there’s depth to complement those operatic pipes. “All is fair in love and war / but all I do is love you more”. That’s the kind of compression and wit you would expect from a veteran wordsmith, not a 17-year old ingenue. Celeste continues to electrify the industry with works whose quality keeps her in a league of her own.

Celeste Buckingham is a certified platinum artist and MTV Music Award winner in Europe. “Crushin’ My Fairytale” is set to blow up and crush the charts from the US to Japan. It has already made Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40!

Celeste is currently an official ambassador for L’Oreal. In addition to that she was once the youngest X-Factor judge, as well as the second youngest Cosmopolitan cover model in history. She has starred in a feature film as – what else? – a princess! Celeste Buckingham is committed to many philanthropic and charitable organizations and causes, such as CARE.org, Boys & Girls Club of America, autism (Nobody Knows) and women’s rights (I’m Not Sorry).

“Music is a ladder for the soul,” she says. Check out the world’s next vocal icon and let yours climb to new heights of wonder. Below we have the official video clip for Celeste’s hit single “Run, Run, Run“. Make sure you follow @CelBuckingham on Twitter Facebook and Instagram.

[Video] Certified Outfit Ft King Sonny – “Down 2 Ride” (@CertifiedOutfit @lilsonny4)

Certified Outfit perfect the art of smooth party anthems thru their latest offering featuring Dallas artist King Sonny, “Down 2 Ride”. Possessing strong songwriting abilities and precise rhyme schemes, Swindle and Church utilize their love for old school rides and the gangsta funk movement made famous by the Westside of the map.

Church stated the inspiration behind the making of the beat came from acts such as Zapp and Roger, Dazz Band, One Way and Gap Band. “That morning, I was playing Chaka Khan “Ain’t Nobody” and was trying to come up with something that had that same synthesizer funk feel. I wanted to make sure that I had those vintage Westcoast elements like the Moog synth bass line and old Roland synth leads and pads.”

Swindle came with the idea of doing something old school or along those lines and in doing so, the duo began penning verses in true Doug E Fresh & Slick Rick fashion. The back and forth approach really adds a vintage overlay to it and together with Texas native King Sonny, the catchy chorus solidifies this as a truly great record.

The video was directed by Landoe for Vivid Visual Films. He does a spectacular job of portraying the whole WashHouse lifestyle with only a few mere minutes. The guys are currently at work on two upcoming projects as well as debuting new music as part of their “Fish Friday” releases. Here is the “Down 2 Ride” video from Certified Outfit and King Sonny.
