Music: Buju Banton + John Legend — Memories
We got mad and took things too far and we’re wanting that old thing back, but now it’s complicated.
Sam Smith – How Do You Sleep?
Sam Smith did not come to play with you bishes! Saw this on IG a little bit ago and knew he was gonna snatch some edges! https://www.instagram.com/p/Bzssqs4Ax1-/?utm_source=ig_web_options_share_sheet The announcement? https://www.instagram.com/p/BzvBj2QgFTL/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Well, Mr. Smith did not disappoint. Watched the official video when it popped up on Youtube, and Sam and his dancers are serving poses! Vogue! …
Spirit – Beyoncé
I heard this song when it came out, and it gave me all the feels. Then, this morning, I saw the video. Beyoncé has solidified her Queen status with this one. No passengers on her plane–except Blue Ivy! She took me to the motherland, Wakanda, and the depth of my soul. I’m 110% here for this.…
Music: Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Loved
I’ve been on hiatus for a minute. I’ve written 16 or so pieces, but chose not to post any. I think I just needed to get some things out that I didn’t quite feel like sharing. Plus, it’s been less time consuming to just do quick posts on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/reallifechic/). And then this morning, a…
Have a blessed Easter! God is good all the time!
Music: Khalid + Normani — Love Lies
I’m listening to a lot of Khalid lately. I’ve been hearing about him for sometime now, but I never bothered to seek out his music. I was listening to Pandora the other day, and one of his songs came up. I was like, who’s that? Since then, I’ve had him on replay and even added…
Nothing feels better than this…
I really should be asleep as I write this, but my brain won’t let me rest. So, I’m up trying to decompress by listening to love songs. I love love, so why not? I’ve got Khalid’s “Better” on replay. That song feels like a warm, lavender scented bath on a Saturday afternoon being spent indoors with…
Say You Love Me
Say you love me to my face I need it more than your embrace Just say you want me, that’s all it takes Heart’s getting torn from your mistakes ‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love If you don’t wanna try, But all that I’ve been thinking of Is maybe that you’re mine Baby it…
Je me souviens…
Je me sens sentimental aujourd’hui. À l’écoute de Michel Sardou et Julio Iglesias. Voilà à quoi ressemblait le samedi matin à la maison quand je grandissais. J’espère que ma traduction est exacte. Dédié à mon peuple. #Haïti
I’ve had “Boasty” by Wiley, Sean Paul, Stefflon Don, and Idris Elba on replay since the video came out. I have to admit I may not have pressed play if not for my curiosity… Sexy Stringer Bell/Idris rapping? Where? The video is also one that you’ll want to watch. Shout out to the kid…
Stream of consciousness
I fell asleep listening to Luciano Pavarotti Radio on Pandora the other night, woke up, played Love TKO by Teddy Pendergrass, fell back to sleep. Had fascinating dreams. Was tired this weekend and didn’t feel like writing. So I didn’t. As I write this, I am listening to the Love Jones soundtrack. That film changed…
While getting some coffee the other day, I overheard a varied group of teens talking about “old school music”. Music from the 90s that is. I chuckled inwardly. One of them was playing Nas and Lauryn Hill’s “If I Ruled the World”. At least he had good taste in music, I thought. “You like old…
