I’ve said it once before, and I’ll continue to say it; it has become so hard in this day and age to find and pick out good, quality music. Certainly, a good turn up or ratchet song is okay. I’ll be the first to admit that Cardi B’s Invasion of Privacy gives me LIFE. However, I feel that a lot of today’s music is missing heart, substance, and the magic that made hits of yesteryear timeless.
Let’s be real; there are so many songs out now, over-saturating the radio that we will NOT hear ten years from now. Some of the lyrics hold no weight behind them, and all you’re left with is a beat that’s either completely similar to another, or sampled in hopes of gaining the same success off of a past hit.
It has become a bit of a task, lately, to find songs in recent years that I genuinely like or enjoy when I hear them. For July’s playlist, I decided to highlight just a few that have managed to catch my attention. Some with great vocals, some that are just okay. Some with outstanding lyrics, some that are just catchy and match perfectly with the beat they’re over. I hope that you enjoy them just as much as I do.
