Music Monday Vol. 1


I’m no connoisseur. I’m no expert. I’m no critic. I just know what doesn’t sit well with me. I’m about 36 years behind, and I don’t even mind. I have no qualms about living in a time capsule.  When I venture out of it, the few songs that stick, stick forever.

Sharing and exploring music is intimate, so this is a smedium deal for me. I’ve been othered and called weird for liking “white people music” for so long that it takes effort to really enjoy and align myself with the values represented in mainstream black music. I take suggestions from people whose interests and lifestyles resonate with me.

Here goes. Hits. Misses. Videos.

Hits

“About You” – XXYYXx 

I don’t know how to explain why this song is so sexy! Like chopped and screwed meets art  gallery.👩🏾‍🎨

“Combine” – Kes (aka Kes the Band)

I like his/their infectious upbeat positivity. For the culture, for sure! Makes good workout music. Might play this at my wedding.💍

Misses 

“Bruck Off Yuh Back” (Remix) ft. Breezy

First off, this culture vulture business has to stop. Second, fake patois makes my stomach hurt!😑

Videos

Afro-beat, pop, punk, soca, jazz, or house is LIFE!💃🏾

I love how the minimalism of the video helps you focus on the primarily dark-skinned beautifully-adorned women! I’m here for this harkening toward the motherland in music of late! Yes lawd! 😫😭

Plus, TWO VIDEOS!

“Come Closer” – Wiz Kid ft. Aubrey Graham

The more aesthetically immersive version…

BRUH! What if there’s a club scene in Black Panther, and this song is featured!? 😱💀

Anywho that’s all I’ve got. Burn your bridges, listen to new stuff. It’s not ok to write off whole genres based on generalizations. I’m trying to leave 2008!

If I love you, I have to want better for you.

When Roze first went in 2012,  it was kind of like a journal ... that other people could read. Embarassing. But I'm realizing that my voice, my experiences, my representation and narrative are valuable. There's room enough for me too. My talents and interests. My time is now. Roze
