Happy New Year everyone!
Let’s try something new! The playlist is still here, no worries.
The feeling music conveys is effortless for sure. Ed Sheeran sure proved that when he came back from hiatus this month, with not one, but TWO songs. What a way to kick off 2017! Holidays are the truly the best, because everyone relaxes and settles for the new year. I took the chance to enjoy and listen some 2016 artists in more depth.
It made me realize that every month can include an, “Artist of The Month.” So, to start it off, I don’t think anyone should overlook or ignore the talented, Solange Knowles. With a voice so angelic, she always shows her strong independent female side. I admire that. The first song off this playlist is, “Don’t Touch My Hair,” which represents and sets a powerful statement for African American culture. She harmonizes with Sampha, where they both ask “What you say to me?” Because why would anyone judge the way someone looks, that question is powerful in it’s most simplistic way. Her album, A Seat at the Table, is one I’ve been playing non-stop the past 11 days. Take a moment to enjoy what Solange is doing. Even though her sister (Beyonce) and her create differently, they know how execute music with a message.
Here’s Jan. 2017 Playlist! It includes various artist like, Tyler, the Creator, Krisp, Cuco, and many more. Enjoy. – y
