In recent years there has been a surge in black consciousness both in America and around the world. People are reaching back to the roots, studying and learning about who they are, and searching for hidden truths. The discovery of our truth has led to well-deserved anger which often leads to depression. So, a rebirth of self-love, appreciation, and respect for our African heritage is long overdue. What better way to tackle the range of emotions that come with black consciousness then to come together with like-minded people in a space created for black love and positivity? One of the many purposes of “The Love Ambassador” is to spread love and unity across the world and that is what we plan to do during “The Classy Cultural Day Party Affair”.

It’s Monday Morning and male RnB artist Rob Lee has dropped off a special treat. The Louisville native just released his highly anticipated “Monday Morning” single. Since I first heard it, it’s been one of those songs that pops in my head at random times of day, causing random bopping, resulting in plenty of “Is there something you are listening to that I can’t hear” remarks from friends and after listening you’ll know what I mean. The record is a combination of super sexy and super catchy. According to Rob Lee,
“The song is about being in the cycle of being interested in someone, spending time with them, creating a connection only to have them disappear and reappear over and over. “
