SONG OF THE DAY: MICHELLE WILLIAMS feat. BEYONCÉ and KELLY ROWLAND – SAY YES (LIVE)

I’ve said this before, but despite being an atheist, gospel music lifts my soul. When Michelle Williams released ‘Say Yes’ in 2014 I was going through a tricky time and I used to play this song over and over and I would always feel lifted by it. Almost a year after its release, Michelle united with her Destiny’s Child bandmates Beyoncé and Kelly to perform … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: MICHELLE WILLIAMS feat. BEYONCÉ and KELLY ROWLAND – SAY YES (LIVE)

SONG OF THE DAY: JAX JONES x YEARS and YEARS- PLAY

This song gives me maaaajor garage throwback vibes. It reminds me of a lot of Artful Dodger tracks from the early 00s that my friend and I used to blast in her clapped out Citroen Saxo as we drove around thinking we were the shit. I’m not really one for clubbing, but this song makes me want to go out and dance. Though having said … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JAX JONES x YEARS and YEARS- PLAY

SONG OF THE DAY: JANET JACKSON – NO SLEEEP

In May 2015, Janet Jackson surprised everyone by announcing she was set to release new music and head out on a world tour. The then-untitled album would be her first in seven years and would satisfy fans who at that point had no idea whether she would ever make music again. The star had been M.I.A. for a few of years, rumoured to be living … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JANET JACKSON – NO SLEEEP

SONG OF THE DAY: SAM WILLS – UNIFY

I remember first seeing Sam Wills a few years ago as a support act at a live gig and promptly downloading his first EP, ‘So Bright’. Not only does he have an incredible voice but his music is so transportive. With every song you really feel as though you’re entering another world and that’s down to the crystal clear production by Wills and Karma Kid. … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM WILLS – UNIFY

SONG OF THE DAY: CIARA – I BET (ACOUSTIC VERSION)

I will always stan for Ciara. I think she’s one of the most hard working, humble artists out there and her ability to sustain a career for fifteen years should not go unacknowledged. Also, if Janet Jackson – one of the nicest legends around – likes you enough to call you a friend, then that’s good enough for me. Ciara NEVER gives a bad live … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: CIARA – I BET (ACOUSTIC VERSION)

COVER OF THE WEEK: BROKENHEARTED (BRANDY and WANYA MORRIS) – JEREMY PASSION and TORI KELLY

I only discovered this video by accident when YouTube automatically played it to me after a video I had been watching finished. Thank you YouTube algorithms! I have to confess, I wasn’t familiar with Jeremy before watching this video but OMG, his voice is so smooth and soulful! Tori is also of course a beautiful singer and the two of them do a great job … Continue reading COVER OF THE WEEK: BROKENHEARTED (BRANDY and WANYA MORRIS) – JEREMY PASSION and TORI KELLY

SONG OF THE DAY: ARIANA GRANDE – BETTER OFF

Last week, Ariana Grande released her fifth studio album, ‘Thank U, Next’. The release comes just six months after ‘Sweetener’, her chart-topping fourth album. The title ‘Thank U, Next’ would suggest the 25 year old is more than ready to move on from the previous project (and ex-finacé Pete Davidson), although bizarrely she is set to embark on her six month long ‘Sweetener World Tour’ … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: ARIANA GRANDE – BETTER OFF
