Good evening ladies and gentleman and welcome to the first in the series of Music Mondays. So I am sure like everyone music plays a huge part in my life. It plays with my emotions, brings me up when I am down, and makes cleaning the house bearable. It pushes me when I am working out and relaxes me in the bath. My dad has an insane CD collection reaching over a thousand, and we are a very musical family. Therefore music runs through my veins and I like all different types of genres. So I have compiled a list of what I have been listening to this week! Songs for when I am jogging, when I am cooking and when I am cleaning , and when I am relaxing. Hopefully you’ll find some new music too.
THE WEEKND FEAT LANA DEL RAY – STARGIRL
I just love The Weeknd and Lana Del Ray so the both of them together is like a match made in heaven. Her sexy sultry voice against his harmonising higher pitches. The only thing that makes me sad about this song is that its only an interlude. I would have loved them to make a full song.
ZAK ABEL – UNSTABLE
Zak Abel is no new kid on the block, I have known about him from a good few years back and always enjoyed his songs. He as worked with some pretty big artists at such a young age. I think he just has this rustic raspy voice which he mixes with modern music. This song makes me excited for summer, it just has those tropical vibes flowing through. I also like the lyrics as I feel pretty unstable most of the time ha.
YUNA FEAT JHENE AIKO – USED TO LOVE YOU
This is not a newbie to the charts but one I just come across. It is now on my absolute chiller playlist. I think both these women have incredible voices placed over some crazy funky beat. Its just got a really nice vibe to it and one to wind down to. #GirlPower.
JAX JONES FEAT RAYE – YOU DONT KNOW ME
Yes this is my workout tune. My partner and I differ so much when it comes to workout songs. He loves influential songs that really mean something. I just like beat. Pure beat is what keeps me going and makes me push. Raye has gt some good vocals and more important the song is so catchy. I am bobbing my head just listening to it now! Ha
MAROON 5 FEAT FUTURE – COLD
So Maroon 5 are probably a guilty pleasure of mine. Not that I am a frequent listener however there have been some tunes I will know every lyric too and have a little boogie alongside that. He still has that great voice. Although this song he has gone to the dark side and is really playing with vocal only really singing during the chorus. Yet it sounds great, its catchy and I just want to belt it out. Cant say I have ever like Future, not sure why is so big all I hear is auto-tune.
