“My Everything” is Pure Pop Perfection

Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’ is pop magic. Sweet and spicy—a wonderful mixture of 808s and simple but not dumb lyrics. It’s the kind of album you’ll want to sing along to in your car and your shower and while you clean (essentially everywhere).

It’s sexier than last album but not dirty. It feels like the natural progression of someone collaborating on songs from the age of 17 to 21.

Grande is the best of everything that’s on the radio right now: EDM with Zedd, hip-hop features with Childish Gambino and A$AP Ferg, and all without straying away from her constant throwback to old Mariah feels.

In a time where there is so much chaos in our world, it’s refreshing to be reminded the kind of escape music can be.

Favorite Tracks: the sexy “Be My Baby” feels like 90s R&B re-imagined; “One Last Time” is pop perfection. 

For your listening pleasure… Ms. Ariana Grande

The Worst Guys

There is just something about Donald Glover… it’s hard not to fall for the self-proclaimed hipster. His first official album “Camp” dealt with all of his adversaries thoughts on the meaning of what it means to be black and what makes a straight man straight with a lightness that other rappers haven’t been able to access (i.e. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ ENTIRE  “The Heist”).

This second album doesn’t shy away from the issues Glover addressed in his first album. He’s still hungry, you can hear it in ‘Crawl’ and ‘3005’ but “Because The Internet” is Glover’s best self yet.

He sings. He raps. He acts. He feels. But he’s not complaining. He’s just speaking about his life.

For your listening pleasure… Childish Gambino.
