Black History Month: Black Male Artists
Back in July I made an article focusing on black female artists, during the height of the Black Lives Matter movement this year. As this month is Black History Month, it’s only fair that I highlight black male artists who are equally as important as their female counterparts. You can read the article on black female artists here.

This year has been a weird one, to say the least. The world has been flipped upside down and we’re all getting used to this new way of life. Wearing masks, social distancing, and the constant use of hand sanitizer! But, this new way of life has also has a plus side: WFH! Working from home has become the new normal, and for most of us that’s pretty great.
To My Bestie
Best friend, Thank you for being my best friend. I know other best friends have come and gone, but you’ll always be my one and only true best friend. After knowing each other since we were 3, I think you earned that title well and proper.

It's Love, Actually
Let me set the scene for you. I was probably around age 6, spending the weekend with my Grandma in December. I stayed with her every other weekend and we’d always watch a film before bed. As it was nearly Christmas, my Grandma recommended that we watch a Christmas movie, even though it was I hadn’t heard of. She said it wasn’t animated, so I instantly felt grown up to be watching a film with real people in it. We started watching it, and I was enjoying it, and then BOOM. There he is. A small, ginger boy with a cute face who is called Sam. Hello, first celebrity crush.
I ˂3 The Eighties
So you’re telling me I can only listen to one decade of music when I’ve grown up on 90's and 2000s pop music, my nana’s love for Elvis and my own music taste that varies from AC/DC to Nicki Minaj?? Well damn, the answer is pretty obvious to me.
