Mid-Week Music Mashup.

Ari Lennox

Here are a few songs that I’ve had on straight repeat lately.

Lianne La Havas- Twice (little Dragon Cover)

Lianne’s cover of Little Dragon’s “twice” is as good as it gets. You do you think Lianne’s version is better than the original?

The Roots-“When The People Cheer”

All About She- “Go Slow” EP

Yumo– “Kingston”

The Weekend- “Drunk in Love” (Remix)

There’s something irresistible about Abel’s overtly sexual songs and this revamp isn’t any different from his original tracks. “I’m not trying to fuck tomorrow, I want you now, now…” br>

Childish Gambino featuring Azealia Banks- “The Oldest Computer” (The Last Night)

I can’t get enough of the upbeat futuristic sound.

A lot of Jessie Boykin III

Yuna- “Live Your Life” (Featuring Theophilus London)

I love the song’s message:

“Find your light/Don’t hide from what you are/And rise before you fall/ And hope for something more….”

The Internet- “Give It Time”

Alewa featuring Shuga Ray and Daze, “Sound of the River”

After I got over the auto tune singing, I focused on the message of the song and it slowly grew on me.

Ari Lennox- Ariography Ep

Her breakout song is “La La La La”.

MNEK -“No Ordinary Love”

For you Grace Jones fans, her re-issued album “Nightclubbing” dropped earlier this month.
