If You’re Reading This You’re Too Late and other new music releases!

If you know me well, you know I have the most diverse taste in music, like.. ever? I can be listening to Jeff Buckley one moment and switch to Taylor Swift just a little later. Today I wanted to talk about some new releases from this past month, including Drake’s new album “If You’re Reading This You’re Too Late“.

I don’t listen to rap that often, unless it’s Drake, really. AND THIS GENIUS decided to pull a Beyoncé and release an incredible new album. Without any announcements he told everyone they’re too late. The album contains 17 (!) new tracks. They’re very Drake sounding so I personally don’t think he stepped too far away from his comfort zone. However you don’t have to change great things. My favorites on this album are “Legend” & “Know Yourself”. Definitely worth checking out if you are into rap and r&b.

Next up is Rihanna‘s (and ugh, Kanye West, I really dislike this man) new song featuring living legend, Sir Paul McCartney. It’s called “FourFiveSeconds” and it kind of sounds like it was recorded on a drunken Friday night and it should have never seen the light of day and that’s exactly the reason why it works so well. I must have listened to it about a hundred times already (I told you about the issue I have when I really like a song).

And last but not least, the soundtrack of the most anticipated movie of early 2015, the soundtrack of Fifty Shades Of Grey. I have to admit, I totally read all 3 books of the series and even though I wasn’t blown away by the writing style, I was definitely curious and I wanted to see the movie. I started reading reviews and I wasn’t so convinced anymore. BUT let’s talk about the soundtrack of this movie. I’m a huge The Weeknd fan and as soon as I figured he wrote a song for the soundtrack I knew I’d love it. The Weeknd’s “Earned It” is a classic Abel song and he killed it. He also has another song featured on this album, equally as great. Ellie Goulding‘s “Love Me Like You Do” is a super catchy song as well and I think it matches pretty good with Ana’s character. You can also find other artists like Sia, The Rolling Stones & Frank Sinatra on the record. So who knows, I have a feeling the soundtrack might be way better than the actual movie.

What are your favorite new releases of February so far? Are you planning to watch Fifty Shades or are you not interested at all? Oh and except for Rihanna’s new release you can listen to both albums on Spotify for free as well!

Music, music & music!

I was going to blog about what to pack for vacation today since I leave for Sevilla on Thursday but I got really sick last night and I’ve been feeling absolutely terrible the entire day. I haven’t really left my couch unless to.. Well yeah. That. Sorry. Way too much information. Anyway. I will still blog about that subject, but it will most likely be for when I get back next week. So today I just wanted to share a blog I kept as a draft for a while!

Music is my favorite thing in the world, well next to traveling. I used to do freelance/voluntarily work  for a music & entertainment website. I wrote tons of reviews and got to interview some incredible musicians. My passion for music only grew when I met more people in the industry and pretty much attended a concert every week. I also got to join some friends on tour and create the best memories.

So I decided to include music a little bit more into my blog & write posts about artists I think you all need to discover, concerts you need to attend in Belgium, etc! I created a music page (go check it out!) where you’ll be able to check out the monthly playlists I make on Spotify, reviews of albums & more!

Let me know what you would love to see on my blog, besides music, as well.
