Now Playing: New Year, New Tunes!

I was home this week with plenty of time to discover some new music and I am totally ready to bring in 2014 with these new jams:

Later On – The Swon Brothers

I remember watching & loving these guys on last season of The Voice so I am SO excited that they’ve released their first single and that it is really great! They’re full of energy and crazy talented – I think they’ll be around for while! Plus, how could they not be with looks like that?

Numb – August Alsina

numb

I know, the lyrics are absolutely absurd and disgusting, but it wouldn’t be a complete S playlist without at least 1 token terrible rap song. This guy sounds almost exactly like Chris Brown and I dare you to try not dancing when this song comes on.

Team – Lorde

lorde-team-stream

I MIGHT like this song more than Royals. Yeah, I said it. I haven’t listened to the whole ‘Pure Heroine’ album yet, but I like what I hear so far and might have to give in soon. With that voice and passion I still can’t believe she’s only 16.

Talk Dirty – Jason Derulo

JasonDerulo

Okay, fine, maybe this post has 2 absolutely terrible rap songs. But can I really help it if all I want to do is dance? This song is SO different from Jason Derulo’s last hit “Marry Me,” but I won’t lie, I like it a lot more.

and Bonus throwback –

Get Me Bodied – Beyonce

I know she has a completely new and amazing album out, but I have not been able to bring myself to download it yet. I’m still not over Miley’s Bangerz or Eminem’s MMLP2 so I just don’t want to add another full album if I’m unable to give it the attention it deserves (weird, I know). HOWEVER, I have been inspired by the release of the new album to revisit one of my old Bey favorites.

What will you be listening to in the New Year?

Now Playing: Rap & More

You all know about my rap music obsession by now. Well, it’s been in full swing recently, as I’ve discovered some pretty great rap songs I’ve been listening to non-stop. I know they’re crude and difficult to understand, but try listening to any of these in the morning and not having a little extra pep and sass in your step for the day. Also, sometimes they’re just downright hysterical.

(Note: I have not linked to the actual videos for the first few because they’re super weird and inappropriate)

Slight work – Wale

Bassline – Chris Brown

I’ve been listening to these two on shuffle during my whole commute the last week or so, and it definitely pumps me up for the day. I just have to resist breaking it down on the metro…which is probably more difficult for me than most people (sorry not sorry I love to dance!).

Headband – B.o.B.

Acapella – Karmin

These two songs embody what I mean when I say rap music is funny. If you check out the lyris (especially to the last one), you’ll see what I mean!

Some non-rap jams for those that aren’t feeling the hardcore stuff:

songs

Royals – Lorde

You’ll Find  A Way – Santogold

Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood

These three songs are a little more alternative than my usual song choices, but I just can’t help myself. They’re all super different, too. Not sure what’s gotten into me…but I’m loving the variety! Lorde & The Neighbourhood are both newer artists, while Santogold has been around for a while. Check ’em out!

Redneck Crazy – Tyler Farr

You didn’t think I would just let this list go on without adding a country song, did you? Tyler Farr is pretty new to country music, but this song has definitely been pushign him to the top of the charts already. The name makes it seem kinda weird, and I’m not sure what it means that I love a song called “Redneck Crazy,” but I don’t even care. I DARE you to try not belting this in the car…

What are you listening to?
