Last week Ed Sheeran released a music video for Don’t, one of the songs on his album. The song talks about how a girl he was dating cheated on him and there have been rumours about who he was talking about. It’s quite a personal song and it almost didn’t make it into the album because Ed thought it was too personal. It makes me never want to get on his bad side ever.
The video shows a guy who dances his way from absolute poverty to massive wealth. I love how he dances and the choreography. I love dance and in a perfect world I would have been a dancer. I like how Ed Sheeran only appears twice in the video and only for a few seconds.
Here it is. Enjoy
This was not how I had pictured it, it was going horridly against my plans. I had set out exactly how everything was going to happen but Murphy’s Law seemed to be in play. Now I was stuck in a taxi with no cash and extremely late for my first ever press pass event. Continue reading
Today is a good day. I like myself today. I know I should everyday but the truth is I don’t. There are days when I look at myself and I want to hug myself. But there are days when I can’t bear to look at myself in the mirror. But today is a very good day. Maybe it’s because I didn’t stuff myself with unnecessary food or because I don’t have a bloated stomach. I just feel like I don’t have to change anything about me right now. I looked at my mid section in the mirror and actually smiled. I feel like I am who I’m supposed to be. I don’t have to give any excuses for the weight I gain or lose. I don’t have to explain anything to anyone. Yep, today is a good day.
I have spent the past 2 weeks listening to Ed Sheeran`s new album x . I loved his first album + and I was looking forward to listening to more of his witty and genius lyrics. So after listening to the album a thousand times, here are my five favourite songs from the album. Continue reading
Wretch 32 is a UK artist who I think is highly underrated. His songs usually have a good message and he tackles diverse topics. One of my favourite songs by him is “Doing ok” which features Jacob Banks. I love the video because it is creative and engaging. Enjoy!
I realized quite early that I was different from most of the people in my life. I had different aspirations and dreams. My personality was different and I enjoyed different things. I preferred reading and writing to boys and nice clothes. When I got my first job, people tried to get me to dress a certain way but I was already set in my way. I had different views from the rest and when I tried to air them out, I got burned. Continue reading
After years of silence, one of my favourite artists, Asa, is working on another album. Her previous albums have been my anthems and there was a time when I knew every word of each song. This song is called Dead Again and is a single from her forth-coming album ” Bed of Stone” which will be out in August. This song is different from most of her songs. It shows the angry side of her. The choreography in the video is on point and interprets the song perfectly. I loved it and i hope you like it too. Enjoy.
I can’t believe I am only watching this video today. This song is nearly 7 years old. It’s the cutest thing I’ve seen this week and I hope you like it. Enjoy!
I realised I have never posted a Zambian song here. So here’s one of my favourite songs. It is by a Zambian artist called Scarlet. I’m working on a post concerning her that I will be putting up soon. This video also has one of my friends who sings backup for Scarlet so it’s a favourite for a few reasons. Let me know what you think about it if you can. I bet you will enjoy it.
I know I’ve been away for some time. I’ve been prompting myself to say/write something but a few things have been going on with me and I’ve never been one to handle too much emotion. When things get too much, I shut down and play dead like a possum. I become non functional and can’t concentrate on anything for long. I tend to become depressed quite easily. It’s quite silly because it’s the most trivial things that get to me. Like more than 2 people telling me I’ve gained weight releases an avalanche of emotions of failure, disappointment, dissatisfaction and disapproval. It’s crazy really, but in the words of one of Zambia’s musicians with a funny haircut/hairdo, Judy, “It is what it is” . (She probably got the phrase from somewhere else. I just wanted a way to say something about her hair)
Anyway, to break the silence I come bearing a gift. It’s a new video by Pentatonix called “Say Something”. It’s a cover for a song originally done by A great Big World and Christina Aguilera. It is so beautiful and gloomy. Just the kind of song I would listen to during one of my depression modes.
I promise I will say something soon before you guys give up on me.
This song is one of my current favorite. Jacob Banks has a great voice! Enjoy.
It’s December. Christmas is almost here which means this year is almost over! Yay!
Here’s a Christmas song by Pentatonix. Again, I love these guys. No one does acapella like they do. Enjoy.
Here’s a little something for your Friday. Believe it or not, these guys are doing everything with their mouths. No instruments were used! The bass guy is amazing! I should hire them to sing the soundtrack of my life every single day.
