A follow-up album from Teedra Moses!!!!!! Great vibes on this album! I love that she stays so true to herself and it really shows with each body of work she creates. Get into that Clairvoyant mixtape as well! One of the best mixtapes of this year.

Another beautiful album from Lianne La Havas. You can hear the growth in production and her growth as an artist. I just love her voice and how she’s so personal with her lyrics. She goes through the inspiration behind most of the songs in these two videos: Part 1 & Part 2

Lalah Hathaway - Lalah Hathaway Live

Lalah’s VOCALS!!!!! So great to hear some of my favorites jams live, makes you feel like you’re in the moment with her.  The bonus tracks are great as well.

Great comeback! My love of this album really grew after I saw her perform live in April. Jazmine’s artistry really comes through. Her lyrics and vocals are everything!

Top (5) Songs

Tori Kelly - “Funny”

So much truth in this song! Great songwriting with Claude Kelly and Chuck Harmony.

Thundercat - “Them Changes”

This song has such a great groove.

D’Angelo - “In Another Life”

The way D’Angelo goes in on this track!!!

Alabama Shakes - “Sound & Color”

This song is like no other. Vocals. Vibe. This track is just amazing.

Jazmine Sullivan - “Let It Burn” / “Mascara”

I love both of these songs. “Let It Burn” is that feel good soul and “Mascara” shows how great Jazmine is with her pen. Key Wane killed production on both of these tracks! Acoustic versions are great too*.
