This weeks song are:

1. Sean Paul – We Be Burnin’

Sean Paul is one my favourite hip-hop and dancehall artists and We Be Burnin’ is one of my favourite songs by him. This song was released in 2005 and appears on his album, The Trinity (2005). This song reached no.2 on the UK’s singles chart and no. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The beat of this song is so catchy and makes you want to get up and groove. Please listen to this song below:

Sean Paul – We Be Burnin’

2. Shakira – Gypsy

Gypsy is one of my favourite songs by Shakira and it appears on her eighth studio album, She Wolf (2009). This song is heavily influenced by Indian and Middle eastern music and this song is literally about what its like being a gypsy. I love how delicate and soft this song is and I also like the music video. Check out this song below:

Shakira – Gypsy

3. Timbaland & Magoo – Hold On

Hold On is a song dedicated to Aaliyah after her death. It’s a sad song which is reflected on the melody of the song as well as the lyrics. Timbaland talks about how things haven’t been the same since she passed on. I love the opening lines of this song which is “It’s been three years (AH!), livin this fast life. I think on it, I know one day I won’t have life“. I love this song beacuse it’s so raw and honest and they talk about their feelings which is so beautiful. R.I.P Aaliyah. Please listen to this song below:

Timbaland & Magoo – Hold On

This weeks songs are:

1. Chipmunk – Flying High

British Rapper, Chipmunk, released this song in November 2011 and its the lead single of his second studio album, Transition (2011). I love the beat of this track and I’ve been a fan of Chipmunk’s music since I was 10. He has only just come back to the music scene, doing grime, but I still love his old tunes. I really like the music video of this song as well, it was shot in South Africa, please listen to this song below:

Chipmunk – Flying High

2. Timbaland & Magoo – Indian Flute

Timbaland and Magoo are a rap duo from Virginia who met when they were teenagers. I like this song because it is unique in the sense that there is a story being told by a woman in the language of Punjab. The whole song is a dialogue between a man and a woman, it’s pretty much a story of two lovers. Yes, there is an Indian flute in the background which adds to the context of this song and makes it even more beautiful. Check out this song below:

Timbaland & Magoo – Indian Flute

3. Muse – Starlight

Starlight is an alternative rock song by the British alternative rock band, Muse. The album title, Black Holes and Revelations  (2006), comes from one of the lyrics in this song “Our hopes and expectations, black holes and revelations“. I really like this song and this band in general, so check out this song below:

Music – Starlight

Enjoy, and please tell me what you think about my song choices for this week!

#WhoRunThe World?Girlsï»ż.

Who Run The World? Girls. is a great playlist that contains some of my favourite female R&B, Hip-Hop and pop artists like BeyoncĂ©, Eve, Sia, Rihanna and Britney Spears. It always features some of my favourite girls groups ever like The Spice Girls and the Pussycat Dolls. This is a particularly great playlist if you want to listen to some girl power!đŸ’đŸŸ The singers in this playlist are straight BOSS and show this clearly in their songs. Like the last two playlists, this is more of a throughback playlist because I love hearing the great tunes that were released between 2000-2010, which made me first fall in love music. Listen to this great playlist below:

#Room2: UrbanClassics

#Room2: UrbanClassics

Room 2: Urban Classics is a great playlist full of my favourite urban tunes. It contain Hip-Hop, R&B and UK garage songs from artists including Snoop Dogg, Missy Elliot, Nina Sky and Sisqo. What I love about this playlist is that it includes some of my favourite dancehall jams like Gimme the Light by Sean Paul, No Letting Go by Wayne Wonder and Turn Me On by Kevin Lyttle. The blend of UK garage and mainstream Hip-Hop makes this playlist unique and refreshing, mostly beacuse UK garage is not as popular as it used to be however, it’s still a great genre of music. Enjoy this playlist below:

This weeks songs are:

1) Sigma – Find Me ft. Birdy

Sigmas has released the music video for their latest single, Find Me, on Thursday which features Millie Bobby Brown from the show ‘Stranger Things’. This song features the English singer-songwriter, Birdy, who I must admit I’m quite a fan of. I love her voice in this song, it soo emotional and I like that the music video reflects the song perfectly in my opinion. Check out this great song below:

Sigma – Find Me ft. Birdy

2) Vybz Kartel – Fever

Fever has to be one of my favourite Dancehall songs ever! Vybz Kartel released this song in May and it was one of my favourite summer jams. If you don’t already know, dancehall is a genre of Jamaican popular music. I’ve always loved dancehall music because it’s so energetic and lively, so please listen to this song below:

Vybz Kartel – Fever

3) Milli Vanilli – Girl You Know It’s True

Even though Milli Vanilli didn’t actual sing their own songs, I really like this tune. This duo used back up singers to sing their songs and they were ultimately stripped of a Grammy Award when the media found out. This song reached no. 1 on the German Official charts, so check out this song below:

Milli Vanilli – Girl You Know It’s True

Last week I shared my ultimate gig wish list for 2016 and this week for Music Monday, we are going to take a trip down memory lane. Even though pop isn’t my favourite genre, pop music was one of the reasons why I developed my love for music. I love songs from 2007-2011 because I began to have a passion for music at this time. I like the fact that there’s a lot of British artists in this playlist as well as American artists and my favourite artists in this playlist include Lady Gaga, Duffy, The Saturdays, Sam Sparro, Fergie and Christina Aguilera. This playlist is definitely contains the classics and most artists in this playlist were at their prime during this time. Happy Halloween and Enjoy this playlist!
