Music has been one of the biggest forms of communication since forever. We as music listeners , listen everyday to different songs that relate and talk about different themes, lessons and challenges of life. This has been common for a long time as I started to notice a pattern for this. These are mostly common in hip-hop or pop songs on the radio. There are many songs that we love to sing that have one common theme that is always brought up in these songs: Drugs. Some won’t bother to say it because of how good the song is, we do not care what it is truly about. We will still listen and praise the artist and song. I believe that music artist should stop talking about Drugs in their songs and start doing something about it.
Well, it was an another exciting weekend for music again. Philadelphia Native Rapper Lil Uzi Vert dropped his long awaited album, Eternal Atake this past Friday at midnight.
It has been three long awaited years and I think it is time to ask the question: Where is The Weeknd? We all remember him 3 or 4 years ago as the man who dropped classic hits like “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Often,” and “The Hills.” The Weeknd was at the top of the charts as being an original R&B/Pop singer from Toronto, so what changed in the last few years and what has he been doing since then?
Well, it is finally here. This Valentine’s Day Weekend had a widestring if projects being released like A Boogie’s Artist 2.0, Migos new song “GNF,” and YG & Kehlani’s diet “Konclusions.” After 5 long years of last studio album in 2015, Purpose, Justin Bieber drops his anticipated fifth studio album, Changes.
The 64th annual Grammys were held this past Sunday on January 26th. They were hosted the second time in the row by New York Singer Alicia Keyes. I watched the award show and can honestly give my best opinion about it. The Grammys are a supposed to be a prestigious award show that recognizes music over the past year, but overall the years it has not been very promising. This year I feel like it was not as entertaining and the award recipients were given to the wrong people. I do not know why the Grammys keep going with this system, as it loses their credibility. They were a few good highlights from the show that I might recognize as well. To further explain my point, here is a rundown of the entire show.
