And what are your dreams? What do you want to make happen 2016? In this issue we can all take some cues from making a dream reality with young hot fashion designer Courtney Allegra, new voice Asia Mari, celebrity hairstylist Loretta Nero, makeup artist Elsie Daniels and So You Think You Can Dance? talented Yorelis Apolinario. Not to mention an interview with New Zealand’s Janine and the Mix Tape, a review of Iceland’s Jay Nemor’s album Just Sayin and a recap of one of our own favorites right here at home, Missy Elliott. We also have some relationship and roommate advice, so if things weren’t working in 2015, here are some tips to make it right in 2016!
Right on the cusp of the holiday season and the end of 2015, excitement and change is in the air! In reading over the interviews and articles in this issue on some amazingly talented celebs and artists, there seems to be a common thread of living in transparency, building your own independent dreams and making things happen—it couldn’t fit in at a better time with us here at Viral Music Media and RnB Magazine. The last six months have been a bit crazy as we’ve endured many company changes, YET we still managed to get out the last issue of the year and are charged up about making 2016 the best year ever!
We hope you enjoy the issue, have a great holiday season, whatever that means to you and stay tuned in for an exciting new year from us here at RnB Magazine and Viral Music Media.
