I‰'m not usually a fan of electric music like David Guetta but I believe this song has a good mix. The lyrics are very repetitive but are secure. The fast pace that begins then leads to the slower pace is a perfect mix. It‰'s not too fast, and not too slow. This song is perfect to listen to if someone...

Songs written about places are a dime a dozen. It‰'s almost as clichÌ©d as that clichÌ© I just used. The same goes for songs written about love interest. You have your “New York, New York‰Ûs and your “San Fransicso‰Ûs. You have your “My Sharona‰Ûs and your “Baby Blue‰Ûs. What I find the most inte...

I switched school districts in high school and there I met someone who is possibly as close to a musical soulmate as I have ever gotten. Despite this, it took us three years into our friendship to discover this. This was the first similarity between us. We are very private about our music. This happens...

MHD is the future. The Afro-French rapper headlined U Street Music Hall on September 15. It was awesome. His Guianese-Senegalese roots give him the rhythm that sets him apart from any other rapper you‰'ve ever heard. That, and his rapid fire French lyrics. His love for trap music and Afrobeat fuses...

I am floored by Lorde‰'s sophomore album, Melodrama. Lorde has created a deeply personal, hard-hitting album that reveals much about herself as well as other young adults. It‰'s almost like she read my diary and wrote Melodrama about it. And the best part of this album is that she isn‰'t tryin...

Who else is excited about the new Lana Del Rey album? I mean, probably nobody at this organization other than me because of high standards and what not, but me, I am. I don‰'t really care that she puts out the basically same album every two years but with a different color scheme in the videos. Her...

This week was a great week to have an existential crisis. At least, that‰'s what my brain told me. I spent many a night contemplating the unanswered questions of our species, so when Zedd and Alessia Cara‰'s newest video set out to answer one of my biggest inquiries, I was all for it. So, what...
