so i was really trying to stay consistent with my posting every Monday but the Met Gala happened last week and that was promptly canceled and yesterday i spent being anxious (y’all there are somethings in the works and i’m so excited)
but alas, ya girl is here for another music minute (i was working on another post that just didn’t feel right). so summer is basically here and my shifting playlist reflects that. so today’s music minute has 3 songs that have constantly been on repeat and i can’t get enough of it. I don’ t know about y’all but one of my favorite things about music is being able to pick up on something new each time I listen and that is definitely the case with these songs.
First up is How I Feel by Moods. This is a whole vibe and i love how very 2002-ish it sounds. I love songs that take my back to a time and this song reminds me of the days i would sneak to watch BET (you know when they played music videos
and you never knew what you would see and my parents just loved to pop up each time i even thought of watching BET) and they had the music videos where the guy would chase his love interest through a semi crowded street with his group of friends who could all sing and dance while professing his love to her even though he just met her. It’s the perfect song to drive around with someone special or just vibe out by yourself.
Second is Run Away by L.A.X. is an Afrobeats song and as far as i’m concerned, its not summer without a good Afrobeats song. You can’t help but bust out that ugly dancing face as the beat starts to hit. The beat is just hypnotic and a mandatory wine is very called for. L.A.X.’s voice is very commanding as he’s asking for his interest to love him. Been pressing repeat ever since i stumbled across this one. this song is a whole bop.
Last but not least is I Want You by The Avila Brothers. you ever hear a song so good you cry, this is it (although to be fair, good music is one of the few things i’ll actually cry over) anyway, I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS SONG! ya girl loves a good sample and this song combines Marvin Gaye’s I Want You and Debarge’s Stay With Me. the second i heard the first line i knew i would love this song immediately. the production, the chilled out melody along with the smoothness of the vocals and the steady bass in the background. It’s so seductive and enticing and it makes you feel every part of the song and the vocals. my goodness, YALL THIS IS A WHOLE VIBE. GET INTO IT AND BE BLESSED.
That’s it for now, quick shoutout to Spotify’s discover weekly for the constant gems.
