iPod Additions: Justin Bieber, Yuna, Lorde
So I know I’m really late but I just added these 3 albums to my iPod/iPhone. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I like Justin Bieber’s new album “Journals”, not because he’s not talented he is an amazing singer, but because…you know he’s a pre-teen/teen heartthrob and it just feels a little weird to be listening to his music as I slowly enter into the quarter of a century category. His music doesn’t sound as “pop-y” anymore its more sultry and grown man-ish, yes he is maturing but still what do you know about putting it down biebs? Anyway he reminds me of a clash between Justin Timberlake and Usher but I don’t care what anyone says I really like this album (don’t judge me with those judging eyes)
I’m really late on Yuna, I just realized that her album “Nocturnal” came out in October 2013. I found out about her back in early 2013 on YouTube when she did a Frank Ocean “Thinking Bout You” cover, her voice is so captivating and her lyrics are just AHHHH ! Some lyrics from her Decorate EP “In high definition I’m dreaming of you” from Coffee, “Like lullabies you are forever in mind, I see you in all the pieces in my life, though you weren’t mine you were my first love” from Lullabies, “Did I mistake giving you my heart, I didn’t seem to notice till we fell apart” from Stay. Also I just found out that she will be coming to Toronto on January 30th, I will not be attending because I will be in a type of jailed facility called school.
Lastly, there is Lorde’s album “Pure Heroine” everyone knows her for the popular hit song “Royals” I’m going to be honest I have only listened to half of the album then switched back to Justin Bieber’s album. But I really like the songs that I have already listened to, it is the perfect hipster music that I need when I am walking/shopping along Queen Street West.
