Arrested Development @ 1st Hit Listening Party from Grown Folks Music on Vimeo.

Coming fresh from trailblazing the Essence Music Festival and hitting the Top 10 Hot 100 charts in Tokyo with their track, The World is Changing, Arrested Development has shown no signs of slowing down or conforming to the mainstream imbalance in music. We had the wonderful opportunity and sheer pleasure of having this two-time Grammy award winning group at the 1st Hit Listening Lounge with our partners, Music Addikts and Harmony In Life. Discussing the arrival of their brand new album, Strong with Ms. Jodine Dorcé of Jodine’s Corner, the hip hop revolutionists got on the mic and gave a little taste of their new cuts, Bloody and The World is Changing along with some classic hits, Tennessee and People Everyday. Check out some of our exclusive pics and video footage from this great event! Also, be sure to get the new album Strong at iTunes or Amazon.
