March has brought us some pretty cool tunes, but it was also merciless with the mediocre ones. We discuss Kendrick Lamar’s surprise compilation album, ZAYN’s highly anticipated Mind Of Mine and up and coming artist Låpsley. Warning: mixed feelings.
In terms of music, Kanye West was definitely the most noticeable and hilarious figure in February. From his tweet asking Zuckerberg for a small loan of $1 billion (a Trump reference indeed) to the Wiz Khalifa shade and to Rose Amber’s tweet that still rules the Internet, Kanye was unstoppable this month with his online presence: he just won’t stop tweeting. Not to mention that he titled his album So help me God, Swish, Waves, just to ultimately settle for The Life of Pablo (wth?!), which, apparently, is neither referring to Escobar, nor Picasso, but Saint Paul. And it does make sense, since this album is slightly gospel, like West warned us about.
These days I’ve been thinking about my writing and where I want to take it from here. Interestingly enough, the conclusion that I reached was that I do not know. I don’t know whether my main interest is beauty, music or film. I’m still figuring everything out, but what I do know is that this is my safe haven where I write about myself and shit that I like. So, I am hereby introducing the new series: The Music Den, where I’m talking about music I listened to that month: old and new.
