so basically something must be in the air because all musical faves are just delivering straight 🔥🔥🔥
so there i was minding my business watching IG stories when it happened. after a week or so of teasing imagery and snippets, Luke James decided to bless our ears and drop his single ‘Drip’.
I WAS SHOOKETH.
goosebumps immediately pop up on my arm as he sings the first line. i have been a fan since randomly watching his ‘I Want You’ video years ago and he was SANGING. anyway, y’all know that i got my entire life from his husky falsetto. it’s a groove that i honestly feel with every chord from that bass guitar in the background. by the time he gets into the chorus, its clear this is a whole vibe. that falsetto, the funk seeping through, his voice literally feels like it’s dripping as he plays with between a falsetto and his regular voice. his voice literally feels like it’s dripping throughout the track.
“feeling on your booty but i’d rather feel your soul” when i tell y’all i clutched my imaginary pearls and proceeded to get my life from that one line. honestly the song could have ended right there and ya girl would have been A ok with that. A1!
AND THE LYRIC VIDEO, i still think music videos are very vital and really are an art in its own right. you get to see what the artist envisioned for the song and it really does bring it to life that enriches the music even more.
if you can’t tell, this song has been on repeat for the past couple days because i needed to properly digest every melody, guitar riff, drum beat, every syllable he sang. i can’t wait for what’s next.
i turned 24 on July 18th. now i'm someone who never does anything for her birthday. my last birthday function was when i was 17 and it was a surprise party courtesy of my mom, sister and best friend. the point is, i'm that person who doesn't make a big deal out of my birthday. this year, i decided to switch it up and actually celebrate. so being a passive fan of all things extra, i had the idea of a 70's skate party. do i know how to skate? lol hell nope but as far as i was concerned, it'll be super cute and fun.
we get there and it was honestly as cute as i envisioned it would be. the vibe was so beautiful. there so much unity. when i tell y'all that there were legit olympic skaters there. they were doing flips, break dancing and all types of acrobatics. it looked like the olympic skating meets roll bounce. they were just bopping and gliding to old school hits ( i was getting my entire life from the playlist) and in the midst of all that, i couldn't help but notice how happy everyone in that room looked. no one has a care in the world, just being free and genuinely having so much fun. being able to be surrounded by my friends had me lowkey in all of my feelings. i'm just so grateful for them.
i have been thinking of what goals and affirmations i would like to have for this year. so here are some of them
i will have financial stability
i will get a space of my own
i am capable and able to achieve anything i put my mind to
i am grateful in advance for all the blessings that i will receive and the ones i have now
thank you so much to everyone that reads, subscribes or even quickly glances through. i appreciate it all.
until next time, Nneoma
shoutout to @antdray on IG for these beautiful pictures.
last week, i was fortunate enough to go to day 2 of Panorama in Randall Island Park and to be quite honest, i am still on that high a week later. many delays and some train rides later, my sister and i made it
just before Chet Faker (who was really good). we squeezed our way to the front (one of the few times being short pays off) and patiently waited for Tame Impala’s set.
and then they came on and just blew my mind.
it was around 9, the sun was setting and they began with Nangs. my goodness! when i tell y’all that i was immediately transformed into another dimension. it was so good, being that close to the stage and feeling the music with the rest of the crowd. they performed songs from Currents, Innerspeaker and Lonerism. y’all THEY SOUND SO GOOD LIVE. THEY SOUND JUST LIKE THE RECORDING. it was honestly such an experience from the first cord that was played to the very last.
honestly one of the best performances i have been privileged to see. i literally felt like i was being transported through dimensions. the visuals were on point, i could literally feel the sounds, the weather was perfect btw because each time i would close my eyes, a soft wind would blow and it was honestly such a moment that i was so happy to experience.
so glad i was finally able to see them live in concert, it was truly amazing!
