Hold On We’re Going Home

I’m conflicted. I just don’t know whether or not I like this song. You see, its such a big change from the hyped up “Started From the Bottom” track and I feel like I’m expecting this song to somehow turn into the previous song I feel in love with (Yes, I know that it will not). Then again, I kind of like the fact that Drake attempted to “sing” in this song and it wasn’t completely bad, so maybe I’ll learn to like it. I don’t know.

The beat is great, but the lyrics make absolutely no sense to me, and I feel that they should after listening to this song over and over again, trying to decipher whether or not I like this song.

P.S. The video makes no sense either. Just start watching at around 3:00.

If I Ain’t Got You ♥

I’m surprised that I haven’t blogged about this song yet. This was one of Alicia Keys first big songs. In my opinion, it is also her most beautiful song. Although I do love Keys’ original version, I am even more in love with Maroon 5’s cover of the song. Why? Keys’ sings this song with a beautiful jazz back ground and an amazing jazzy voice to go with it, but there is absolutely nothing better than a man with a voice like Adam Levine’s singing a jazz love song with a simple piano background. Also, I prefer that Maroon 5’s version is in a bit of a higher not signature. Either way, they are both beautifully performed songs. I will post both up here for you. Take the poll and let me know which one you prefer!!!

P.S. Don’t you just think about that “somebody” every time you listen to this song?

Love Me

“I’m on that good kush and alcohol.” How about a little rap review  everybody. Oooo, Have I done one of these yet? I’m not too sure…anyways. Love Me is a song by Lil Wayne (Weezy) with featuring artists Future and Drake (Drizzy). It is produced by Mike Will Made It (That guy that did Miley Cyrus’ album #bangerz). I think that this is one of the best hip hop songs that I have heard in a while. Future’s half sing/rap voice at the beginning of the song is so perfectly complimentary to the song that I fell in love with the song just from hearing the first 30 seconds. Drake is just amazing in almost every track he is featured in. Even though Drake says virtually nothing, his presence on this track just makes it even better. Lil Wayne’s main rap just hit it on the nail. His flow and lyrics were just amazing (or as amazing as rap lyrics can be these days).  Mike Will Made It did a great job with the beat. I love this song and I am constantly playing it over and over again. Even though I dont really listen to rap (as you guys might have guessed), I still like to indulge once in a while. Next to Bangerz, this is definitely one of my favourite musical things right now.

BANGERZ (The Album)

Yes, I did it. I caved and bought Bangerz. And let me tell you about how much I love it. Not only did this album get me through the grueling task of studying for exams, but it also gave a great new soundtrack to work out to. Yes I did expect the album to have more songs that were…bangerz, but I must commend Mike-Will-Made-It’s efforts. The album was great and worked well with accommodating her voice. The people that Miley chose to work with really did help to make the album good. Although the album was great for my needed pop music fix it, it wasn’t the best pop album I have ever hear. In fact, I kind of feel that it didn’t meet up to the hype. Either way, I like it, and you probably like it too.
