don’t start thinking dua lipa isn’t one the top pop vixens (now)

where TF have i been?
as of late,
i don’t want to listen to no “low vibrational” music.
most of the new r&b gals and wolves are depressing af.
i’ve been depressed,
but during social isolation,
i don’t want to go “there“.
i listened to sza the other day and i hated everyone.
so one of my fav foxholers told me who he was listening to.

Jhene
Dua Lipa

dua lipa?”
i remembered her for this:

…and wrote her tf off.
 now,
i’m…

OBSESSED.

a tiny bit.
i’ve been listening to her first album and she has been getting me through it.
pop music tends to be upbeat and can bring you out a funk.
her music,
even tho it has sad elements,
still has a vibe of “hopeful“.
the words can be sad,
but the melody and beat is saying “you’ll survive this and come out better“.
i had this one song of hers from her new album,
“future nostalgia”,
on repeat yesterday:

i was gonna do the weeknd’s new album,
but i’m not emotionally ready for him right now.
abel has always been super dark.
ima rock with dua and more pop for a little.

low-key: i noticed music from the past,
like motown and even the 90s,
had that vibe of hopeful even if it was sad.
this marvin gaye record i had on repeat as well:

  1. Perfect song for the wolves who have suddenly reappeared in these days of quarantine. I discovered her awhile ago and she is definitely worth checking out.

  2. i haven’t felt this way about a pop album in a minute. Ms Lipa came through and exceeded expectations. I hope she keeps it up.

  3. You have to check out Dinah Jane, former band member of Fifth Harmony. She’s got her own lane in R&B right now and her sound isn’t depressing like the others lol. She just released two promotional records, “Lottery” & “1501” and is releasing her highly anticipated single, “Missed A Spot” on April 3rd. It’s a song about pussy eating lmao. Check her out Jamari. I think you’ll like her body of work so far..
