I just got word that Black Spade will be joining Colette and her band as they headline the Metro on September 8th with Derrick Carter, Heather and more. They will be performing my personal favorite song off the project ‘Funny.’ Listen to Funny below and peep the exclusive live footage from Colette’s last week performance at the DNA via Imeem. Angelo and I were kicking it tough, however, i have to say, my camera hand is way better…

Om’s First Lady Drops Highly Anticipated Second Album. Featuring hits, “About Us”, “If”, and the underground favorite “Funny” w/ Om: Hip Hop’s very own Black Spade.
Om Records’ first lady, Colette, returns with ‘Push’ the highly anticipated follow up to her critically acclaimed Billboard Magazine No.1 charting debut ‘Hypnotized’ – featuring the hit singles ‘About Us,’‘If,’ and ‘Funny’ featuring a collaboration with Om: Hip Hop (URB’s Next 100) newcomer Black Spade. Given her art for stylistically blending her own beautiful classically trained voice with some of the most cutting edge production of her career, Push aims to take Colette into the large global dance and alternative pop worlds.
Performing at over a hundred shows a year in front of audiences around the world including Coachella, The Grammys, MAC Cosmetics special events and more – while maintaining her monthly residency in Chicago at Smart Bar, and leading the charge for female DJ’s with the first ever all-women DJ collective, Superjane – and releasing multiple DJ mixed compilations including a volume in the heralded ‘House of Om’ series with label mates Mark Farina, Kaskade, DJ Sneak and more, plus licensing her music to the International hit film “The Devil Wears Prada,” the impact of Colette and her music is virtually everywhere.
Inspired by her house music upbringing in the birth place of the beat, Chicago, ‘Push’ harks back to the days where electro, house, hip hop and freestyle music ruled the airwaves and caught the attention of not just the street savvy youth, but the global dance / pop scene and MTV, who actually broke new artists. Chock-full of undeniable hooks and body rocking beats that reach back to the past while equally pushing forward into the future, Colette has done something few seem to do these days: create a complete album of hits that will grab anyone with a love for good music
