What’s happening everyone?! I hope you all are doing well, and things are going good. In this edition I wanted to share with you a new track I have online at my newly created BeatStars profile. For those of you all that don’t know, BeatStars is the #1 music marketplace for music sales and collaborations! I’m very excited to be apart of the community there, and I plan to use BeatStars as a new way to sell my beats!
The first beat that I uploaded is a track I call, “Praise”. It’s a very mellow song and has a lot of piano leads and some really nice bass! Check out the YouTube video above to hear a sample!
Please make sure to check out my BeatStars profile for more tracks as I upload them. I’m going to be going be upload more tracks as I complete them. So stay tuned for more!
Purchase your copy of “Praise” from my BeatStars store!
Sometimes writing a song helps me express myself in ways I usually can’t. I always tend to do this when things happen in my life, and things get a little too much to think about. Poetry and songwriting always helped me with things, and I need to remember to go back it from time to time.
This song means a lot to me, because when I wrote it I had still a little more to learn. I still had to experience a little more pain before learning my lessons. Long story short, this song is another sad one I needed to write so I could move on. Honestly, I’m not sure why it took so long to share this one. Maybe I had to work up to it.
Things are still hard from time to time and I usually take things hour by hour, instead of day by day. But things have gotten easier and I’m starting to work more. eventually time does help, but mental toughness has a lot to do with it.
Lastly, please love the people that matter the most to you. Really love them! Enjoy the moments you have because you never know then the good times could end.
Things have been fun. By fun I mean, crazy. With that being said I hope you all are doing awesome, and that you’re ready for ANOTHER currently listening! It’s been a while since the last one and I think it’s time to get started again.
I was looking over the last few of these posts, and I wanted to shake things up. I’ve been listening to some different stuff and I hope this one blends together. But if not, open your mind and vibe out. Variety is the spice of life, so live it.
“You Right” – Doja Cat Ft. The Weekend
So I’ve always been a fan of Doja. She has been consistent with her sound and her personality is really dope too. “You Right” features the Weekend, and as you know, I’ve been a huge fan of the weekend since he started to reference more 80’s pop in his music. Together, they make this song an excellent vibe to chill and smoke too.
BONUS: Trip out on the video. See if you can point out any subliminal messages LOL 🤣
“Power” – Laserpunk
Ugh…If you ever needed a song that would not only motivate you to work out in the gym, but also motivate you to take over the world, this is it. “Power” by Laserpunk is just that jam! Every time I listen to this song I immediately feel the power (see what I did there…) and want to hulk out.
I came across Laserpunk while exploring the roads of Night City and listening to the radio. They had some tracks featured on the soundtrack of Cyberpunk 2077, and I was hooked. If you have a chance take a listen to their Pandemic themed album “Covenant”.
“Go” – The Kid LAROI ft. Juice World
You have to thank (or blame) TikTok for this one. I had been hearing a specific single from the Kid LAROI, and after looking around his discography I found this one. “Go” features the late Juice world. Typically with all artists that have passed on, I ALWAYS end up liking their music. This single is no exception.
If you dig Juice World check out his track “Come and Go” ft. Marshmallow. Shit is a bop too!
“Last Call” – Tinashe
Welcome back to the queen! I’m so happy that Tinashe has released a new project. The “333” album is another one in a string of awesome albums that KEEP killing it. I have been so impressed by her consistency and innovation during the pandemic. She is truly an inspiration and keeps coming with amazing music.
I can’t wait for more from her!
So, there you have it! A few gems from my recent playlists and a small facet of my musical personality. I hope you enjoy the selections, and that you all are continuing to stay sane in this crazy world.
Lately I’ve been placing post-it notes on my wall. Each has something written on it that I need to remember, and put into practice. One of these says, “follow through”.
This little piece of paper has kept me moving forward, and has kept me focused on completing tasks. One of these tasks is finishing up a new cover song that had been on my to-do list for a while.
I had been tinkering with the concept for a while, but had yet to knock it out. With my friend the post-it note in mind, I pressed forward. Now, I share with you my friends a mellow rendition of the R&B Classic, “Nice & Slow” by Usher Raymond.
I hope you all enjoy, and I will see you all soon!
