Favourite Song of the Month: Adore You by Harry Styles

This month’s song, has been a favourite of mine for quite sometime, since I discovered it on the radio. There are always songs that you either love straight away, or there are songs that take time to grow on you. This song is definitely in the former category, and is also my introduction to Harry Styles as a solo artist.

Adore You is definitely one of those songs that is catchy, intricate and leaves you feeling happy. The song has been sung with a lot of emotion, and whilst to the average listener, one would be mistaken for the song being a romantic, flirtatious one, but instead, when you watch the song’s accompanying music video, you realise its subject matter is a lot more detailed than that.

Favourite Song of the Month: Stop This Flame by Celeste

My favourite song of the month is Stop This Flame by Celeste. I first heard this song on the radio (love hearing new music on the radio) and I instantly loved its catchy sound and upbeat piano intro.

Celeste is a rising star and has been working hard and quietly on her music, for some time. She has strong vocals which have been compared to Amy Winehouse and also Adele. She will be releasing her self titled album later this year and I cannot wait to listen to it.

Celebrating my favourite black musicians in support of Black Lives Matter

In light of the recent tragic events that have taken place in America with the devastating loss of George Floyd, the world has had a re-awakening when it comes to racism and the sad and devastating fact that people can still in 2020, lose their lives due to the colour of their skin. Even though the world is still battling a pandemic, as I watched the series of events unfold with protests first in every state, then in every country, I thought about how I could show my support to this movement.

Since I have been old enough to enjoy music, I have been introduced to many black musicians who have shown me the kind of music that I enjoy and prefer listening to even today. Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Prince, Billy Ocean, James Brown, Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Tina Turner, Celeste, Emelie Sande and Seal are just some of the artists whose work I have grown up listening to. While they have influenced my music choices for the better, they have also inspired hundreds and thousands of singers across the world. There are many many more names that can be added to the above list, because their sheer talent is immense and their work speaks volumes.
