Let’s Twerk, Shall We?
May 3rd, 2014 by Stacey Russell
We can now say we have seen the creator behind the genius that is “Twerkaholic.” We can die happy now. But wait – we are getting ahead of ourselves.
Upon arrival at the FPL Stage for their first day open, we knew all the artists were going to bring it. The line-up included Stevie Bee, B. Smyth and J. Cole. Not too shabby if you ask us. So with the show about to begin, many gathered to watch local artist Stevie Bee take the mic. Sadly, that never happened. Hey Mr. Bee, you were missed, but fans didn’t let that ruin their fun.
Then it was time for B. Smyth, a local 20-something out of Ft. Lauderdale. While he is still working his way up the ranks, think Usher meets Chris Brown with major swag. Oh and the ladies love him. They especially loved the removing of clothing that happened throughout the performance.
The crowd was hyped up and ready to jam and he helped do just that. His hit, “LEGGO” helped indeed. With closing out the evening with “Twerkaholic,” you can imagine what happened next. We all found our inner Miley Cyrus and got in the mood.
Then it was time for J. Cole, the rap superstar that we have all loved since his 2011 debut of “Work Out,” that we were so happy he performed right off the bat. Keeping it classic in a black and white ensemble, he brought a musical entourage that included a band, DJ, back up singers and a hype man. This guy knows how to put on a show and that, he did.
We wouldn’t say J. Cole has been on a musical break, per say. But hiding out in the studio making music, yes. So with a recent performance at iHeart Radio and tearing the house down with his hits like “Who Dat” and “She Knows,” it safe to say he’s back. And we are pretty happy about that.
Closing out the show with a kiss and a big “thank you!” to the crowd, many wandered over to the Doobie Brothers to end their evening. Great night, Sunfest. Great night.
