All I want for Christmas is….

Presents

So I felt inspired by a friend. So I came up with a list of 28 things I would want for Christmas this year.

Just to make it easy for all my family & friends.

2. Tickets to the Micheal Buble concert

3. To make Wedu more than just an idea.

4. Shoes!

SongVersation (Album Review) – Music and I

SongVersation

I am blessed in many ways and it goes without saying that music is one of those numerous ways I am blessed.

I know I am not the only person who gets touched by music. I am sure almost everyone has had that moment when you working or chilling or reading or doing your thing when this song, that you have never heard before takes you by surprise and you feel it. You like in the middle of your thing and you like start moving your head or listening to the words or you like take out your Shazam to find out the name of the song and artist.. so that  you can download it immediately.

That happens to me a lot.

The latest shockingly amazing song that makes my heart skip… India.Arie  –  This love

From her album SongVersation – which I got from my bestie – Miss Gwen Myers (I love you lots)

Have you listened to SongVersation? Neo-soul/Rn’B  type of music and if you are into Maxwell, Musiq Soul Child, Corrine Bailey Rae, Dwele or Floetry – you would love it.

I love neo-soul because it is timeless. I can listen to This love in 2020 and I know for sure it will still make my heart skip. I literally feel like I am floating when I listen to it.

The whole time I was listening to the album I was thinking – I love India.Arie – her music reminds me of God. Her love songs are so filled with meaning unlike any other love songs I have heard for example –  Nothing I love more and Moved by You. The song Nothing “I love more” literally makes me want to wear a dress and dance in the sun. I wasn’t shocked to find her love song to God in the middle of the album – Thy will be done, which has a of reggae touch to it.

The album if full of gems, another favorite I have to mention –  Cocoa Butter. A sunny song that makes me think of flowers, smiles and yellow dresses. Love it!

Its really just a very mature, laid back and happy album.  Its a rare find in a world where pop music has taken over the radio and music channels. It’s refreshing music.

Out of 10  on the first listen I gave this album a  7

Out of 10 on the second listen I gave it a 8.

Out of 10 on the seventh time I listened to it I gave it a 9.

I gave up rating it. Its so beautiful – just buy it.  You will love it.

If you have it, please tell me your favorite song. And what you think of the whole album.
