SONG OF THE DAY: DESTINY’S CHILD – NUCLEAR

There’s no denying that ‘Nuclear’ does not go as hard as some of Destiny’s Child’s better known songs such as ‘Survivor’ or ‘Lose My Breath’, but there is something easy and laidback about this song that just feels so good to me. The Pharrell produced cut was co-written by BeyoncĂ©, Kelly and Michelle, with the latter stating in an interview with German web show MalcomMusic … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: DESTINY’S CHILD – NUCLEAR

SONG OF THE DAY: JAMIE WOON – MESSAGE

Jamie Woon’s debut album ‘Mirrorwriting’ would be classified somewhere in the urban electronic/dance music genre although there’s no hiding the soul in his vocal delivery. His second album ‘Making Time’ leaned much more heavily in to soul and R&B and for me this musical shift only elevated Woon’s incredible songwriting ability.The album opens with ‘Message’, my choice for today’s Song of The Day. The track … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JAMIE WOON – MESSAGE

SONG OF THE DAY: MISSY ELLIOTT feat. LAMB – I’M BETTER

This is probably one of the most slept on Hip Hop tracks of the last two years. I’ll admit when I first heard the song I wasn’t as in to it as ‘WTF (Where They From)’, released two years prior.

SONG OF THE DAY: SBTRKT feat. JESSIE WARE – PROBLEM (SOLVED)

SBTRKT’s usual sound is a mix of UK Garage, House, Dubstep and Electronica; admittedly not the style of music I listen to and talk about on a regular basis. But this particular song caught my ear a few years ago when I recognised the voice as belonging to Jessie Ware, but did not recognise it as a song from her catalogue. Thanks to the trusty … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SBTRKT feat. JESSIE WARE – PROBLEM (SOLVED)

SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SMITH – RESTART

Pain and emotional suffering are a part of life and something we all experience at some point. But when that pain is delivered to us from someone we love and care about it makes it that much harder to bear. However, the up side to it all is once you come out the other side ultimately stronger and more self-assured, there is something so satisfying … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SMITH – RESTART

SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SMITH AND NORMANI – DANCING WITH A STRANGER

I never delved too deep in to Fifth Harmony’s work when they were on the scene (I could probably name less than a handful of songs), but over the last few months the name Normani has been finding its way to my eyes and ears far more frequently causing me to pay closer attention to the Atlanta born singer.A few months back I saw a … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SMITH AND NORMANI – DANCING WITH A STRANGER
