Lately the sweet and savory tunes of UK soul songstresses such as ADELE, Duffy and Amy Winehouse have been exactly what the doctor prescribed for this cloudy month of November. I listen to these tracks and get lost in the vocals as well as their simple lyrics. It's this kind of music that makes me want to move to paris and spend my days writing music and performing on street corners. Beautiful stuff. Here is a track from ADELE's forthcoming album to be released early 2011. Laura Marling also just released a new single, Blues Run the Game, which is a cover. She performs it here for a BBC 1 DJ... she is absolutely beautiful. But now it's the weekend... so Nicki Minaj takes over my ipod with her new album Pink Friday that's to be released next week. It's amazing of course. Here are a few tracks off the album.
Nicki Minaj ft. Drake - Moment 4 Life
Nicki Minaj Ft. Kanye - Blazin
Kate Nash's love songs always have a way of making me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I do admit I enjoy a good love song every so often. And I love Kate Nash, so here ya go.
Nicki goes in on both of these tracks. Really excited for her album to drop this month. And Bon Iver along side Nicki and Kanye? Didn't see that coming but I don't hate it.
Nicki Minaj ft. Eminem - Roman's Revenge
Kanye West ft. Bon Iver, Jay-Z, Rick Ross & Nicki Minaj
