Day 4- First 5 songs on my music player

I'm so sorry I've been MIA. Had to work long ass shifts this weekend and I know I have woefully failed this challenge but I shall continue anyhoos! *Ye shrug*

I will be doing just the first 5 cuz I need to elaborate and 10 is too loong :D

  • When a heart is broken- Lemar
There was a time I used to be in love with lemar my husband! When I was about 16 I hopped on a 2hr bus ride with a fellow Lemar junkie to see him for free and did I see him?..No! We got there late. It was SO sad! It wasn't his music that first got me it was his face! lol. then his voice and the love transferred to his music so I was beyond excited when my cousin/ex roomie got me his album for my 17th birthday. The love has subsided now and all that remains are his soulful love serenades on my iTunes. *sigh* Now that I just listened to this again..this is such a good break up song.

  • Sweet like Chocolate--??
A friend uploaded this on my laptop. Its a funky house/dance kinda song, I don't even know who sang it but the beat is catchy and the hook line "sweet like chocolate" is catchy too. Always reminds me of this friend but its just another random song on my iTunes.

  • Nobody cared - Canton Jones
We did this song for choir in my second year and we all fell in love with the song. It sincerely echoes how I feel most of the time..when nobody cares..Jesus still loves me!
  • Lets get lifted again- John Legend
John Legend is as his name states..a legend. Love him. I have all his albums and I don't think I could ever get tired of listening to his voice.

  • Talk about our love- Brandy and Kanye west
My guys! I love ALL of Brandy's songs cuz she is my mainest G from way back. And Kanye is (or used to be) my guy, so obvs when they did a collab together..I loved it! I love singing and rapping along to this :D

And its a wrap! Most of this is really old..and this is a very random selection from my massive library. :D

Discovered music

Thank you for the well wishes with exams and all. I am finally done with undergrad now..Thank God!! I am really so grateful and I have just been enjoying this downtime before entering the chaos that is the "real world" :s Lots of big decisions to make but I'm just taking it one step at a time for now. Congrats to everyone graduating from secondary/high school, uni, post grad this year!!

While I've been chilling, I've had more time on my hands to trawl the web and discovering new music that I love is one of the sweetest things. Coming across the beautiful Rox was one of the highlights of my week. She's been around since early last year and she released a single called "My baby left me" but I wasn't really feeling it at the time. Still not really into it but I love every other thing I've heard off her!

No Going back-

Precious moments (One of my future wedding songs)

On to other new music I've been listening to is one of Kimbra's, who I discovered through facebook. She has a very unique style,quirky but still cool.

Settle down- I cannot stop singing this song.

Fourkornerz in London!

After the release of their Souletric album and a MOBO nomivation, they took a break from the music scene. But alas, the boys are back in town!!!

I've been a fan of these Nigerian brothers from way back in 2007. Having seen them perform a couple of times..I can assure you they are nothing short of amazing. Their soul funk vibes, the gospel/inspirational message of their songs and the crazy energy they bring is worth taking the trip to see them.

The concert will be at 229 the Venue,229 Great Portand Street, LondonW1W 5PN. On the 27th of April at 7pm. You can  find out how to get tickets (which are only £10) from their website They will be performing their newly released single "superstar" among others. The event also includes Guvna B and Dionne Reid as supporting acts.
