Each 11th of the month, I will post about music that I love at the moment.
1. SAM SMITH IN THE LONELY HOUR
I didn't really pay attention to anything Sam Smith related until he was nominated for the AOTY @The Grammys & people were rooting for him to win. I gave it a listen and realized that I knew a lot of his songs already. This album quickly became one of my favorite & makes me want to go to the karaoke and annoy everybody while I try to give his songs a go haha. My go-to tracks are Like I Can, I've Told You Now, Nirvana & Restart.
2. JONGHYUN BASE
Jonghyun is the lead vocal of one of my favorite K-Pop group, SHINee. I enjoyed Taemin's mini album so I was looking forward to his & he didn't disappoint! When that mini came out in January, I had it on repeat for a loooong time. This album really showed his growth as an artist since he wrote and composed most of the songs on it. My 2 faves are Love Belt, which has a jazzy-coffee shop feel, and Hallelujah which is simply divine!
3. DRAKE IF YOU'RE READING THIS IT'S TOO LATE
Drake pulled a Beyoncé when he dropped his album/mixtape on friday the 13th. To me, this album is not as good as his previous work but there are some really good gems on it. Company is my absolute fave from this album. Travis $cott verse sold me on this one. I also adore Preach, I think that PartyNextDoor and Drake make a good combination. I love all of their collaborations. & last but not least, 6PM In New York, the diss track which ends the album perfectly.
4. NICKI MINAJ THE PINKPRINT
I must admit that I wasn't really convinced with the singles that she put out prior to the album release but it was nice to see Nicki the rapper make a come back! I love Feeling Myself with Beyoncé getting cocky on us, Truffle Butter, Big Daddy, Win Again & Get On Your Knees.
5. MIAMI HORROR ILLUMANATION
I discovered this Australian band while watching some videos on YouTube. I love their disco-house tracks, they're fun and always put me in a good mood. My favorite from the album are I Look To You (love Kimbra voice in this!) & Holidays which makes me miss the summertime like crazy!
