All For Us - Labrinth & Zendaya

Honestly, I should be paid by the entertainment industry but how often I promote shows and movies. Now, I’m not sure how many people actually read these posts, if any, but for those who might, you might know I’m a cinephile and a tv show...phile... (is there a word for that, too?). I’m always referencing entertainment in these posts…

Boom - X Ambassadors

Catchy, fun, and yet meaningful. Boom is about a breaking away from a toxic relationship. The pain and anger turns into fuel to get your feet walking out the door. I’ve written before about how difficult it is to see a relationship from the outside. His song “Gang Shit" tells the story of three Americans; a cop, a KKK clan member, and an incarcerated black man…

Drift - Alina Baraz & Galimatias

Sometimes, I get stuck in the past. I replay moments, looking for closure or signs or anything to bring those moments back. When you lose someone, physically or emotionally, you tend to go back to the past a lot. Eventually, you move forward, and start living in the present but every once in a while, you're pulled back. When there’s a lack of closure, it acts like an anchor…

Vogue - Madonna

First let me start off by saying I’m sorry this took me so long. I just felt it was a little too on the nose, but it just needs to be on the playlist. The whole idea for this playlist started with this song, after all. Plus, my coffee table is toppling over with Vogue magazines and books…

You & Jennifer - bülow

Relationships can be tricky and every one is different. We’ve all had a friend discuss their relationship issues and you try to give them advice and although they agree and nod their heads yes, they don’t act on it. Or vice versa, you’ve been the one to get advice but you know that they just don’t understand the complexities of your relationship. No one can completely understand another’s relationship but every once in a while, music does…

Coming Over (filous Remix) - James Hersey

With not a lot of information just yet on this rising star, I’m given the opportunity to talk about the song itself. What I do know about James Hersey is he was raised in Vienna, Austria and abandoned a jazz-guitar degree to become a singer-songwriter which all started with this song…

bury a friend - Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish is definitely unique. Her music is always fun and eclectic, taking on different sounds and themes, but her lyrics always seems to hit home. Speaking about her and her brother's collaboration, Billie says a lot of their songwriting and lyrics come from common experiences…

Another One Bites The Dust - Queen / Killmonger - Ludwig Goransson

Film has always been a big part of my life. My grandmother likes the brag that she took me to my first movie ever and from there, she started my adventure into film. She introduced me to Hitchcock, Jimmy Stewart, and most importantly, Cary Grant. We watched them all. Every weekend, a different film. Some Like It Hot, Rear Window, Casablanca, The Shop Around The Corner, The Sound of Music. I fell in love with the classic black & white look, the classy women, and the fast talking, hopeless romantic atmosphere of that world…

Honestly, AG doesn’t rest. Each song (that she helps write or writes on her own) is a smash. She’s had hit after hit recently. From breathin’ to God is a woman. A lot of her songs are on my personal Strut playlist and will probably be added to Music To Strut To…

Intoxicated - Radio Edit - Martin Solveig, GTA

This song will make you feel like you're in the opening credits of a movie, and maybe that's because it was used in the opening credits of a movie (How To Be Single). Picture this: you step out of the train station, apartment, house, grand central station, and a camera follows your commute…
