SERAYAH

Indie Artist – Serayah

Drops New Fan Single

“You Told Me”

With Lyric Video

Singer/actress Serayah will be dropping a new song and lyric video for her fans on March 1, 2018 titled “You Told Me.”   Written and produced by Serayah, the song is R&B with a new rhythmic feel, but still getting the classic R&B vibes. “When I write I truly express what’s going on in my life. I wrote this song about a real experience with a guy I was dating. I was just expressing myself. It feels good to really connect to my music and know that fans will relate and feel that vulnerability through my music. Creating a sound to break away from my on screen character was hard, being myself was way easier. That’s why this whole project will be a true outlook of Serayah and who she is” stated the singer.

MARVEL’S BLACK PANTHER #1

New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this May with BLACK PANTHER #1!

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises—new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines—all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “This isn’t a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”
