As you may know, I love ASAP Rocky’s music and I love fashion, so you can imagine my excitement when I first heard his “Fashion Killa” track a while back ago. Honestly, I felt like this song was made for me and I think I’ve made it one of my unofficial anthems. I may not be wearing Alexander Wang just yet, but I do think that every woman should aim to be a fashion killa in their own right. So, naturally, once I saw the video for the single, I knew I had to share it all with you and who better to star as Rocky’s fashion killa than none other than Ms. Rihanna herself. Enjoy!
I recently heard this song for the first time and I simply felt the need to share it with you all. It’s a simple song with a simple message. I’ll let Snoop Lion and Drake speak for themselves, but I will say that I appreciate what they have to say and their contribution to trying to create peace within our crazy world. Here is Snoop Lion’s “No Guns Allowed” featuring Drake and Cori B.
Before I say anything, I have to thank one of my friends for introducing me to this song. I had heard it on the radio before, but I would always skip to something else and I never gave it a real chance. A few weeks ago, we went on a mini road trip and during the drive this song came on. My friend asked me to leave it on, so I did. Now, this first time that I listened to it, I only heard some of the lyrics (mainly because I was driving in the boondocks and I didn’t want to get lost), but I definitely liked what I heard, so, the next time I heard it on the radio, I let it play and I must say that it is a good song. To me, it’s purely an uplifting song that gives you the hope and motivation to keep going. We could really use more of this kind of music! Here is Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child.” Enjoy!
I was recently watching Beyonce perform and, amongst her hits as a solo artist, she also did a number of classic Destiny’s Child songs. As she reminded me of how much I loved the girl group from back in the day, I couldn’t help but remember my appreciation for Beyonce herself, as well. I thought back to when I used to know all of the words to nearly every song Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle put out and I remembered how positive their music was in general. With songs like “Independent Women,” “Bootylicious,” and, of course, “Survivor,” Destiny’s Child was able to empower their fans worldwide and to give them the encouragement that was often lacking in the entertainment industry. I certainly identified with DC’s music back then and their lyrics still hit home. Recently, I’ve definitely began to revive my love for the R&B vocals that defined a large part of my childhood, so, to celebrate this, I decided to share with you all the unforgettable single “Survivor.” Enjoy!
This is probably among the most honest songs I’ve heard in a while. If you don’t think Kid Cudi is speaking the truth on this song, then I don’t know what you classify as real. I hope you enjoy Kid Cudi’s “50 Ways to Make a Record.”
Joss Stone is definitely one of those unique voices who bring a special, positive energy through the art that they create. I have always been a fan of hers and just recently my appreciation for Joss Stone was revived when I heard this song, one of my favorites, at the gym. I’ll let the song speak for itself, but I will say that this song has always helped lift my spirits, so I hope you enjoy Joss Stone’s “Free Me.”
There’s no denying the irresistible smooth quality that this song has, but you might have to listen a little harder to get the message. Sure, intimacy is a big topic in this song, but you have to consider in what context it’s being used. Once you truly listen to what Kendrick and Drake are trying to say about this female’s “poetic justice,” you’ll appreciate them as true lyricists. I couldn’t help but share it with you all. Hope you enjoy it!
