Love Of My Life: Part Trois

Hi Everyone-

I am back with another installment of Love Of My Life. As you may know, I am a huge music fan. And since I love learning about new music, I thought I would share a few of my faves with you. What are some of your current favorite songs?

Tamia- Stuck with You. I actually love Tamia’s entire new album. However if I have to choose a song it would be Stuck with Me. I love the subject, tempo, lyrics, etc. And Mrs. Hill’s voice is as flawless as ever.

Ed Sheeran- Take Me to Church. I love Ed’s version of this song. Although the song is a little sacrilegious I find it to be very well written. And I love that Ed took a risk by attempting such an edgy song.

Corrine Bailey Rae- Is This Love. This is another remake done well. I love the fact that Corrine kept the integrity of the song while staying true to her style of music.

Tech9 featuring (Kendrick Lamar, Mayday and Kendall Morgan)-I’m Fragile. Many people do not know this but I am a huge rap fan. I love artists that are true to themselves stylistically as well as the art form. And Tech9 is no exception this. Although the song features many talented artists, it is not over done. I also love the fact that the song takes on the topics of bullying and how sensitive/passionate artists are about their material.

Alessia Cara- Here. I cannot get over Alessia’s soulful voice. Being the introvert that I am, I can completely relate to this song. I also appreciate how well written this song is.

Love of My Life

Erykah Badu’s Ode to Hip-Hop is one of my most favorite songs of all time. I remember the first time I heard the song. I felt like she somehow took the words right out of my head. I’ve always loved music. And as I look back, some of my earliest memories surround it. I guess you can say music is the love of my life. ( I just had to say it 😜).

I am always listening to music (R&B, hip-hop, jazz, etc). And as much as I love the old stuff, I am constantly on a hunt for new music. Here are some of my new favorites:

1. Mali’s Music- Mali is such a talented artist! I could go on and on about him. I love his entire album! If I had to choose favorites I would say Beautiful, Ready Aim, Walking Shoes and Little Lady.

2. Ingrid Michaelson- Girls Chase Boys. I love the 80s vibe of this song. I also love the fact that it is a light hearted song about being broken hearted. Lastly, I love it’s subtle (but not so subtle) approach to gender roles (as demonstrated in the lyrics and video).

3. Sam Smith- How will I Know. Sam’s slowed down version of this popular Whitney Houston song is the best remake I’ve heard in a really long time. I just love how you can hear the vulnerability in his voice.

4. Jessie J- Thunder. I think Jessie is an amazing writer and vocalist. And I think this song is not only well written but you guess it- well sung. I also really love the video!
