Here are a few songs that I’ve had on straight repeat lately.
Lianne La Havas- Twice (little Dragon Cover)
Lianne’s cover of Little Dragon’s “twice” is as good as it gets. You do you think Lianne’s version is better than the original?
The Roots-“When The People Cheer”
All About She- “Go Slow” EP
The Weekend- “Drunk in Love” (Remix)
There’s something irresistible about Abel’s overtly sexual songs and this revamp isn’t any different from his original tracks. “I’m not trying to fuck tomorrow, I want you now, now…” br>
Childish Gambino featuring Azealia Banks- “The Oldest Computer” (The Last Night)
I can’t get enough of the upbeat futuristic sound.
A lot of Jessie Boykin III
Yuna- “Live Your Life” (Featuring Theophilus London)
I love the song’s message:
“Find your light/Don’t hide from what you are/And rise before you fall/ And hope for something more….”
The Internet- “Give It Time”
Alewa featuring Shuga Ray and Daze, “Sound of the River”
After I got over the auto tune singing, I focused on the message of the song and it slowly grew on me.
Ari Lennox- Ariography Ep
Her breakout song is “La La La La”.
MNEK -“No Ordinary Love”
For you Grace Jones fans, her re-issued album “Nightclubbing” dropped earlier this month.
