Portrait Returns With In The Moment

Portrait has returned with “In The Moment” after being away for a while. They are remembered for their success in the ’90s with “Here We Go Again” and “Honey Dip.” Their R&B style was punctuated with hip-hop and the combination got them labeled as one of the last instances of New Jack Swing.  “In The Moment” marks a new era of Portrait with a sound that compliments their soul-singing legacy. Founding members Michaelangelo and Phillip have added Ruben Cruz to the group. Their reemergence is welcomed in 2018 when the R&B band has become obsolete.


Watch: Aphrose Debut Video For Move On

Aphrose is an R&B artist from Toronto and “Move On” is her new single and video. She says,

“(Move On) It is not your average love song about relationships between two people, but rather about the love a person finds when they realize their own self-worth. Move On is that feeling you get when you finally become aware that you’ve had enough of barriers like hate and fear and you’re not going to let those walls hold you back anymore.”
Michael Tobin directed the video which features 20 women of different ethnicities and backgrounds symbolically walking past sexism, racism and oppression. Aphrose’ s first single “The Middle” announced her presence in 2017.
