thought I loved you in the moment

I was happy, I was not

I’ve been learning, I’ve been growing

But the worst is yet to come

Eyes closed, eyes closed

I’ve been falling with my

Eyes low, eyes low

I’ve been falling with my

Eyes closed, eyes closed

“You’d rather speak more than listen

And that’s based off our first impression

I’m new to all this affection

But I’m going in the right direction”

- Khalid, Motion

Can’t let me go if I’m fallin'
I’ve been on the path of importance
Let the love pull you in slowly
The river is running, we’re flowing
I’m coming down, you’ve been rollin'
And we’re letting free, now we’re open
Pour me a, pour me a potion
I’m rocking, I’m rocking the motion
I’m in love with the moment
See me floatin’, see me glowin’

Best of 2018: Music Edition

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! In this post I’ll be talking about all my favorite music that has come out in 2018. I really wanted to post this before 2019 started but with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I just did not have time. So here we are!

Spotify Wrapped

According to Spotify, It turns out my most listened artist of 2018 was the Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton. I’m still loving Hamilton! There are always Hamilton  songs in my playlists so this came as no surprise. My most listened song of the year was however a surprise. I was sure it was going to be All The Stars by Kendrick Lamar & SZA as I have probably listened to that song every other day if not everyday. While All The Stars is in the top 3, the winner was Bonita by CNCO! When I saw that I remembered the month where I literally had that song on repeat for days on end. That’s probably what gave it the number one spot.

Best Albums

Black Panther The Album Music From And Inspired By - Various Artists

My favorite and probably most listened to album of 2018! Never has a movie soundtrack that wasn’t from a musical captivated me like the Black Panther soundtrack! Making songs inspired by all the events in the movie with elements from that amazing score has been so creatively and well done! I can only take my hat off for that. It isn’t nominated for 8 Grammy’s (including Album of the year) for nothing!

Favorites: All The Stars, X, Opps, Paramedic! & King’s Dead

EVERYTHING IS LOVE - THE CARTERS

We finally have a Bey X Jay album and wow, it’s everything! I didn’t really know what to except going into it. However APESHIT was not it! Instant classic, what a banger and how fun to perform with a crowd, sadly I have not experienced it. YET ;). One thing I love about the album is that it’s a nicely balanced mix of those songs you can really dance to like APESHIT & 713 and songs that you can just vibe to like HEARD ABOUT US & LOVEHAPPY.

Favorites: APESHIT, NICE, 713, FRIENDS & HEARD ABOUT US 

Suncity - Khalid

Khalid aka one of the best new artists! I have been listening to some songs of his (OTW, Location, Young, Dumb & Broke). When both my sister and my mom recommened this particular album, I decided to give it a listen. Am I glad I did just that. I really enjoy albums like this, just very chill and vibey. I can listen to this all day!

Favorites: Saturday Nights, Better & Suncity

Hamildrops - Various Artists

Alright, not really an album, but I thought I would include it here anyway. Cause what’s a music blog post without any mention of Hamilton?! So in 2018, us Hamilton fans have been treated with 12 new songs (one every month) inspired by the musical! First of all, awesome idea! I don’t listen to all of them all the time, but there are some true gems like Found/Tonight & First Burn! And some really unexpected ones like the Hamilton Polka by Weird Al and even a cameo from BARACK OBAMA! 

Favorites: Wrote My Way Out (Remix), Found/Tonight, First Burn, Rise Up Wise Up Eyes Up, A Forgotten Spot (Olvidado), Cheering For Me Now & One Last Time - 44 remix

Best Songs

God is a woman - Ariana Grande

I mean, what to say about this other than amazing. One of my favorites songs of the year and Sweetener. As I’m typing I really don’t what to say. Let’s just keep it simple: A. POWERFUL. ANTHEM. That’s it. (watch the video too, it’s stunning!)

Made For Now - Janet Jackson & Daddy Yankee

JANET JACKSON GIVING US TRUE POP MUSIC IN 2018! OMG. Okay now that that’s out of the way. Janet Jackson is such a damn queen. I can’t believe this song wasn’t appreciated by the general audience. The pop genre these days is so much more of the same, this is so fresh. It has a great message, a great beat with a bit of African influences and DADDY YANKEE! The video is a masterpiece! So beautifully shot, great fashion, awesome choreography (as you would expect from a Janet music video) and it shows New York in a great way. Another thing, the video is avalaible in 4K quality. It’s so cinematic, please watch it on your TV! If this isn’t nominated for several VMA’s…………. Give this song some love! 

Nothing Breaks Like A Heart - Mark Ronson (feat. Miley Cyrus)

Miley is back! I have loved Miley since her Hannah Montana days, it has never stopped and to see her killing it now is just amazing! Nothing Breaks Like A Heart is an amazing song. But it’s the video that makes the song even better. Showing the injustice in America, while some rather focus on celebrity news is so true and it’s great to address it this way!
