ハーレム・ウィークがやってくる!!

HARLEM WEEK 2016

Гарлем Неделя в ближайшее время

135th Street

Read in English

まだ6月ですが、ハーレムは夏の真っ盛り。また今年もアウトドアの祭典、「ハーレム・ウィーク」が始まります。幕開けは7月31日土曜日、「ア・グレート・ディ・イン・ハーレム」と題して大々的に無料イベントが開催されます。

いつものことながら、まだ詳細は未定、音楽パフォーマンスの出演者は発表されていません。直前にならないと誰が表れるかわりませんが、油断禁物、例年、わりと大物が参加しているのです。ちなみに昨年、2015年はアリシア・キーズが出て大盛況でした。ハーレムはアリシアの大好きな街、このお祭りが行われるメイン・ロケーションの135丁目は彼女にとっても忘れられない思い出の場所です。137丁目に住んでいた彼女の行きつけだったダイナーがレノックス・アベニューと135丁目の角にあった「パン・パン・ダイナー」。2003年のヒット曲、”You Don’t Know My Name” は、ここで撮影されました。その後、不審な家事で焼け落ちてしまい、残念ながら再建されることはありませんでした。

Alicia Keys 2015初日の7月31日土曜日はお昼過ぎからハーレムの各地でさまざまな催しが予定されています。新しいスケジュールをアップデートしていきますので「ハーレム2ニッポン」をチェックしてください。

ハーレム・ウィーク開催期間: 7/31/2016 – 8/27/2016

Alicia Keys debuts “The Gospel” at Radio One’s “The Blitz” in New York City

Reported by Ken Simmons

Alicia Keys debuted a brand new song called “The Gospel” at Radio One’s “The Blitz” on August 11, 2015 at Stage 48 in New York City. Speaking to an invitation only audience of radio programmers from across the country and music industry VIPs, the 15-time Grammy Award winner said, “I’m crazy excited. It’s ridiculous… I figured I would bring my studio to y’all and we could listen to some exclusiveness.” “The Gospel” is an intense, throbbing hip-hop track addressing urban blight; a 2015 answer to Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.”

GB_AliciaKeysHere are the opening lyrics of “The Gospel”:

We all God’s children, products of the ghetto, Mama cooked the soup, Daddy did the yellin’

Uncle was a drunk cause it was a felon, and when he got pinched, he told them he wasn’t tellin’

Auntie was a cook, her husband was a crook, cause every job he had, they paid him off the books

Ghetto university, knowledge is all it took, in a tenement I was listening to the hook

After premiering her new song, Keys teased her upcoming CD. “I am bringing the flava of New York,” she said confidently. “We got somethin’ crazy cooking…I will take you to a place you understand. I can’t wait for you to hear it.” No word on when she will release “The Gospel” or her next album.

Radio One, which owns 55 urban radio stations, hosted the party as a showcase for artists to present new music. The list of stars performing included Ciara, Nelly, Janelle Monae with her acts Jidenna and Deep Cotton, Rita Ora, Tamia, and Jordin Sparks, plus Timbaland with his vocalist from Empire, V. Bozeman.

Ciara - EpicCiara’s spectacular six-song set was the highlight of the performances, and she gave a special shout out to her Epic Records family. As Epic CEO/Chairman L.A. Reid and Epic President Sylvia Rhone watched from a private booth, Ciara remembered how Reid launched her career thirteen years ago. “When I was 16 years old, I walked into L.A. Reid’s office,” she said. “Thank you for seeing my vision.”

Earlier in the evening, Robin Thicke briefly appeared to thank Radio One for supporting his career. Diddy also greeted the crowd as he celebrates the 20th anniversary of Bad Boy Entertainment. He commented, “I don’t take it for granted. To still be on this stage, it’s a blessing,” as the crowd roared, ‘Bad Boy…Bad Boy.’

Puff Daddy“What I do best is I provide a great platform for people,” Diddy continued. “I am a great ringmaster. I returned to Puff Daddy & The Family to introduce and support new up and coming artists, to celebrate positive energy and love.” As he looked back at his groundbreaking career, he said, “I remember the first time I heard my music on the radio. It changes your life.” Before introducing the video for his latest single, “Finna Get Loose” featuring Pharrell Williams, Diddy stated that now two decades later, his career has come full circle.

“I’m returning to the party vibe, where you’re not afraid to dance with your lady,” he announced. “I’m taking this movement across the country.”
