Man Crush Monday


In light of recent news, I wanted to make this week’s Man Crush Monday none other than Aubrey Drake Graham. I knew I had a crush on Aubrey since Degrassi and Replacement Girl days.  I remember like it was yesterday when I first discovered the song Replacement Girl, thinking damn who is this fine light-skin? To only realize it was none other than Aubrey Drake Graham from Degrassi. I also did not realize how much I actually LOVED this man until I found some old tweets of mine where I professed my love for him. In September of 2010, I tweeted “ahhh drake = <3.” The same month and year, just a couple of days later, I tweeted, “#aintnothingsexyabout Drake’s eyebrows …i still love the bit tho.” First and foremost, I love Drake’s eyebrows now, idk something sexy about a man with bushy eyebrows, secondly, who was I “bit”? Hahaha. In December of 2010, I tweeted, “dammmmnnnnnnn drake fine ass.” I have no idea what I was watching and/or doing to tweet this, but Lord knows, my young self knew what I was talking about though, LOL. I didn’t find another tweet of me professing my love for the man until August of 2011 where I tweeted, “#20peopleidmarry 6.) Drake.” Another more recent tweet from 2012, I tweeted, “Aubrey Drake Graam! along with blushing, kissy faces, heart eyes, and heart emojis.” I think it’s safe to say your girls celebrity crush was definitely Drake.  I think my crush on Drake so profound that my first boyfriend in college, could damn near go for a Drake look alike.

Anyway, fast forward to today, I still do believe that Aubrey is a fine man, however it’s different.  It’s not a crush, but more so of a I have respect for this man and his art.  He went from Jimmy in the Wheelchair, to Drake, the top artist dominating the charts. Whether y’all like this man or not, you can’t help but realize that he makes bops, he fan base is HUGE, damn near bigger than Beyonce’s and he is definitely easy on the eye still.

I’m also patiently, impatiently waiting for my guy to drop Scorpion and to say something, because he been GHOST af since this unnecessary Pusha T beef.

Also, a dream of mine is to be Head of Social Media for OVO or on his PR Team. A girl can only dream right?

Artist Spotlight: H.E.R.


Y’all.  The artist I want to spotlight this week is H.E.R.  If y’all have not listened to this album, Vol. 2, I suggest you immediately stop reading this blog post and go listen to it now!  I love H.E.R., her voice and her authenticity.  I have not heard Vol. 1 and am currently looking for it.  It’s probably on SoundCloud, but I haven’t downloaded it yet.  I remember before I started listening to her, I saw a tweet about how somebody finally found a picture of her and that she was beautiful and nobody understood why she doesn’t want anybody to see her or what she looked like.  I read somewhere that her secrecy to her identity was because of said reason: “The mystery is a metaphor for who I am, or who I was at the time of creating the project. I feel like oftentimes we don’t like to be as open to people about our emotions or things that we are going through.  At the time of recording, I was very closed off except for when I was writing or when I was in the studio.”  “I am a voice for women who feel like they’re alone in these situations.  This project came from an emotion, and that’s what I want it to be about – not what I look like or who I’m with, but the raw emotion and support for women.” “I feel like this is the era of the anti-star.  I really just wanted to be about the music, and get away from, ‘Who is she with?’ and ‘What is she wearing?'”

I think I just loved the fact that she doesn’t care about the fame and she is more so worried about her music and getting it out there for the people to listen to.  However, after some extensive research, I eventually found out her name and found her Instgram account outside of the H.E.R. account and she is absolutely GORGEOUS!

I was listening to the album and was trying to pick out a list of songs that I loved over the others, but I couldn’t.  ALL of the songs where just that bomb, although Every Kind of Way is probably my favorite! I am also a little sad that sis isn’t coming no where near me for a concert.  Well she’ll be in Atlanta and I could sneak down there to go. Lol.

What are your favorite songs from H.E.R.?

Artist Spotlight: Daniel Caesar


So, I will be the first to admit.  I had no idea who the heck Daniel Caesar was until he performed with Chance the Rapper on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.  Even then, I still didn’t immediately go listen to his music.  However HeyFranHey recently made a playlist called the Cool Breeze on Spotify which is dope btw, that led me to her Hidden Gems playlist.  The first song on the playlist is Daniel Caesar ft. Kali Uchis – Get You and I immediately fell in love with the song.  And again, I still didn’t immediately go listen to the rest of his music.  A couple of days later, I was listening to the Xavier Omar radio on Pandora and Daniel Caesar ft. Syd – Take Me Away and again, I fell in love with the song.  After this song, I was like okay, just maybe I need to listen to his album and LET ME TELL Y’ALL: I have been sleeping my mans.  On my drive to work this morning, I listened to the album Freudian and Daniel Caesar is IT.  Below are a couple of my favorite songs from the album:

  1. Get You
  2. Take Me Away
  3. Neu Roses
  4. We Find Love
  5. Blessed
  6. Freudian

What are your favorite songs from the album?
