Breaking & Entering is a new series that highlights upcoming-and-coming and/or unsigned artists on WATM. I’m not Clive Davis, but I know a hit when I hear it, and I know a star when I see it. So, this new series will give the readers of WATM a chance to hear some new music from those on the rise. If you are an artist with music or a project you’d like featured, simply throw me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. NOTE: Submitting music doesn’t guarantee a post — I have to like what I’m hearing in order to feature it, but you knew that already. Right?

“The concept is a split lifestyle,” he said of the Juwan Lee-directed clip, which premieres tomorrow (March 22). “In life you make decisions and you make choices and you never get to see what would happen if you made a different choice.
