I’m back to commuting most days of the week to and from university so a good soundtrack for the journey is of very high importance. I am always on the hunt for new music to add to my playlists so these posts will be a frequent feature here on my corner of the internet. Does anyone else have a really confused music taste? Like, I’ll go from Kanye West to Iron and Wine to The 1975 in one playlist.
Music is such a huge part of my everyday life. There’s probably not a day in the last few years where I haven’t listened to music at least once. Like I mentioned before, I’m always on the lookout for new music. I love finding something new that just grabs my attention and has me bopping on the train. If I had to name one of my greatest assets, it would definitely be my music taste. Anyway, without further adeiu, let’s get into the tunes
SICKO MODE / TRAVIS SCOTT FT DRAKE
This song is definitely my favourite one to play while I’m in the gym lately. It gets me pumped and ready to kick some ass. I also love how it’s like three songs in one. Honestly, though, I’ll probably listen to anything with Drake on it, it’s just who I am. Drake could release a song that was pure trash and I would still bump it like it’s the best thing I’ve ever heard.
KILLING ME SOFTLY / ZHAVIA WARD
I’d never heard of Zhavia Ward before I found this song on someone’s playlist and now I am obsessed with her. I am also insanely jealous of her because she’s so freaking gorgeous that it makes me want to gouge my eyes out. The version of this song by Fugees is one of my favourites and at first, I wasn’t sure she’d be able to do it justice but she did. Her vocals are perfect for the song.
DAY 1 / HONNE
Y’know them songs that you play and they just put you in an amazing mood? This is one of them. I like to listen to this when I’m getting ready in the morning because it just fills me with good vibes. Also, I found out recently that they’re a British duo which is so amazing, I love finding new British musicians.
I LOVE IT / KANYE WEST FT LIL PUMP
Okay, I know this one will divide some opinions but it’s one of the songs that grow on you even though you’ve convinced yourself that you don’t like it. It’s just a guilty pleasure of mine. This is another song I like to play at the gym.
BEAUTIFUL / BAZZI FT CAMILA CABELLO
Before this song came out I wasn’t aware that my life needed a track with both these artists on it but apparently, it does. Their voices just intertwine so beautifully. Bazzi is an artist I discovered a few months ago and I’ve been obsessed ever since. His song Mine is also beautiful so give that a listen too.
SUCCESSFUL / ARIANA GRANDE
This is the song I put on when I need reminding of the boss bitch that I am. I have been bumping Ariana’s new album like nothing else lately. I’ve never been a huge fan of hers but Sweetener has turned me into one. I play this when I’m going some blog work mostly, in an attempt to have some of her success rub off on me.
And that’s it for the first edition of the soundtrack to my life. I hope you enjoyed this post. If you’d like to listen to some more tunes I bop to on the daily then follow my Spotify here. I also post loads of music I love on my Instagram Stories so here’s a cheeky lil’ Insta plug.
