Shine My Crown Lu by Alexa
It is Sunday. Some of us go to church. Others are heading to work and the others are eager to relax before Monday kicks off another week of hard work.
Today we would like to bring you some dope sounds curated by the team. Our new “Sunday Sounds” playlist will bring you some of the hottest releases – and a few of our favorites for good measure.
This month, HER released their long-awaited debut LP, “Back of My Mind”. And let’s be clear… no one loves (or isn’t heartbroken) like HER Love is a minefield. We put our whole heart into it, hoping that the person to whom we entrust it will treat it as if it were precious. But let’s also be honest, it rarely happens this way on the first take. Sometimes not even the second or third.
“Back of My Mind” is a trip for lovers. The hights. The socks. The overwhelming joys and betrayals. And then somewhere in the middle of all the late nights, lying awake, contemplating closing your heart to love once and for all (seriously, have the Kleenex awake), there’s healing in there too. So, we must have kissed you with one of the most outstanding tracks on the album, “Trauma”.
Doja Cat also released her album “Planet Her” this week. Critics have already hailed the album as a triumph. It’s hard not to love Doja’s mix of sweet sweet pop (with a hint) and playful raps. She has had her fair share of controversy over the past year, but her talent is undeniable.
Diana Ross also announced that her first album in 15 years, “Thank You”, will be released this summer – and created the track titled Disco from the album.
There’s a lot going on in music right now. It’s exciting. We hope you enjoy this week’s playlist.
