when i’m going through it,
i listen to certain albums on repeat to get myself together.
i like music that can make me process my thoughts,
as well as make me feel inspired at the same time.
my top pick is usually lana del rey,
but since “ultraviolience” is waaayyyyyy too depressimg,
and i didn’t want to listen to “born to die”,
i needed a new fix.
well i was catching up on “mistresses” the other night and i found it.
okay so check it…
so joss was laying in the bed after a good smash session with dr. mchottiepants.
they was in an “afterglow” of some sort.
as they were talking,
a song was playing in the background.
it sounded old school.
i love those kind of tracks.
i thought it was from a black singer i didn’t hear about.
my shaazam app directed me to sam smith from london.
it was from his new album,
“the lonely hour”,
and this is the song that was playing on the episode…
WHY IS HE SINGING MY WHOLE (LOVE) LIFE IN 3 MINUTES?!?!?!??!
when i say i downloaded the song from itunes and had it on repeat heavy?
so you know i had to get the album.
i am hooked and it has been helping me through this funk i been dealing with.
i will admit,
i cried like a straight bitch listening to “life support”.
that whole album is my life-track.
almost every single song speaks about something ive been through.
everyone i have loved or wanted to love.
i don’t think this is an album i’d listen to on the way to “that place i work”,
because i’d be a mess by the time i got to the door,
but it’s something i’d pour me some drank and listen to in my crib.
i reaaaaallllllyyyy needed this to get me through.
upon further sniffing around,
the whole album is about a guy:
“I’ve never been in a relationship before. I’ve only been in unrequited relationships where people haven’t loved me back. I guess I’m a little bit attracted to that in a bad way. In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back. I think I’m over it now, but I was in a very dark place.”
lowkey: if only our BLACK rnb singers would sing music like this.
they are so into this ratchet “bend you on the sink and eat your ass” thot music…
like i can’t.
like can we get a good love song?
a break up song?
something with the vibe these uk singers are doing so well?
i guess the blacks only appreciate it when the whites do it so effortlessly.
