Episode Ten


S1: E10 – As legal issues loom, Kenya struggles to figure out how she’s going to deal with the problems piling up, like Lucas’ secret involvement with another music group, and Tk’s new manager, who has unrealistic goals for what can be accomplished with her fledgling company. While dealing with all this, she unconsciously pushes Derek away, but when he actually starts treating her like a friend, she realizes that she needs to make some changes. Meanwhile, Ty finds herself with a guy from her past who thinks that she’s someone else, and J goes out with a cop who has some serious mental problems.

Episode Nine

He meets her girlfriends, but apparently, he already knows one of them. J and Ty both try to define what friendship means when it comes to the opposite sex, while Kenya helps Tk and Lucas deal with friends online and those in real life. And a powerful music exec wants to connect with Kenya, which may come in hand after she gets news that her business may be in jeopardy.

Episode Eight


S1: E8 – At Tk’s needle drop party for his upcoming album, a unique painting by a local artist forces a distracted Kenya to interpret the relationships with friends that have imprinted on her life.
