Suaves Spotify Playlist of the Day 

Ok Word Press I have a confession. I am addicted to Spotify. Whether it is studying,working out, or just straight up chilling with whomever I come across with, Music in the process of being played.

So yeah here you go. This is what I’m listening to right now.  I’ll have a new playlist up every day, they will be different, and you will have a good time listening to it. 

Feel free to hit the comments section on music that you like, or if you think that the playlist is trash😂. Have a Suave day 

Suave’s Spotify Sunday

Lady’s and Gentleman, we have made it to the last day of the week. So Suave wants to bring tradition into your life by starting Suaves Spotify Sunday, a day where Suave selects seven songs from Spotify to kee p your Sunday’s fresh and relaxing. Let’s get started 

  1. Crew-  Goldlink feat Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy 

With Brent Faiyaz flexing with his melodic voice for the hook, Goldlink comes in and just murders his flow, showing love for his crew while also getting some clever lines like “girl your you can’t tie me down like Ray J said but no I’m down” great shoutout from the song Tie Me Down by New Boys and Ray J, one of my middle school favs. Shy Glizzy brings a turnt up vibe, combine all 3 of them and it’s one hell of a song.

2.  Saint JHN-  3 Below

Saint JHN interests me. With his feature In Teflon Sega’s Beretta Lake,  Saint JHN comes back and drops a single 3 Below,  which is just another great song from JHN, and I’m expecting a big 2017 from me.

3.  NAV- Good for it

NAV is blowing up, from his producing to his bars. NAV recently dropped NAV, a mixtape with amazing beats and songs, Good For it shows how NAV just flexes on everything and that he is good for anything that he is trying to accomplish. Although he is just “a brown boy with a bag” he is co signed with The  Weeknd, and with a Metro Boomin collaboration album in the works, this will not be the last time you heard of NAV in 2017.

4. Perfect by Ed Sheeran 

Ed did it again. This song is just a perfect example of what every guy goes through when they find the right woman. A true story of love and the confusion of what your emotions a person is going through when someone is in love, while making this song sound like a dope 1950’s love song, yeah no Ed you’re the king.

5. KYLE feat Cousin Stizz Want me back

KYLE is killing 2017 right now, From Doubt it to I SPY, although the vision and success started in 2012, KYLE knows exactly what he wants to do and is making the music he has dreamt about. Want me back is basically about all of your demons wanting you back, but knowing that your family and loved ones are with your side, showing you guidance from those demons, while doing it in the happiest way possible. 

6. Khalid Saved 

Khalid crushed American Teen, Saved Is a calm song, showing Khalid will always save a certain girls numbed after a breakup, and he just says the little things that can really break a guys heart, like “I hope you think of all the times… I was the only one who cared” I am currently going through this stuff and Khalid was spot on, Drake who?

7. Mac Demarco This Old Dog

I feel like it is an obligation, to always incorporate Mac Demarco into your Sunday playlist. His music is very calm yet hard hitting at the same time. if you want to catch some sun shine, while listening to some extremely soothing music, Demarco is your guy.

Hope you enjoyed Suaves Spotify Sunday. There will be more great songs next week, so don’t sleep on these Suave playlists next Sunday. Suave out.

Bibi Bourelly is who We need; Stay true to Yourself

It is safe to say, whatever time period we are in ,there will be people who go through life, and people who question everything and are comfortable about discussion.

German born singer, Bibi Bourelly is exactly that. Bourelly has become a role model to the every day teen, and you really see that in her music. Her father, Jean-Paul Bourelly,  was an artist and has collaborated with other artists with his guitar skills, can really influence a teen.

But if you really look down deep, everything around us influences us to be the people we are today. Our emotions control our attitudes, and some days will be good, while some may be terrible, and Bibi preaches that in all of her music.

Her hit single Ballin emphasizes that to the fullest extent. She just writes about her life, while being extremely true and inspirational to the listener. Her latest mixtape Free the Real (Pt.#2) Is filled with good vibes and can show that whenever she drops an album, it will be sensational.

I feel like we are seeing more artists who get life, and they are searching for the perfect sound, and are really striving to make a difference in this world. So keep doing you Bibi, and show off some of the Ego on the way!

When Complex Beats you to the Punch; How Great Minds think Alike

Yesterday was a normal day for me. I started my day at 9am to hit biceps and triceps before school, as  I was loading up my pre workout I decided to get pumped up to the talented Atlanta artist 6lack, who although I have seen on SoundCloud, and Twitter, he has not really been on Complex’s radar.

So I’m jamming, snap chatting, people are replying like ” yo who is this kid” and I’m like yeah it’s 6lack, a lot of “damn this guy is fire” and they’re not wrong, but something strange happened

Out of nowhere I check Facebook, and Complex runs a huge story on 6lack, and Nadeska Alexis did an amazing job showing all of the aspects of 6lack. Complex’s platform can be presented to a large audience, and when you have that platform and really want to help your favorite artists get recognized, you can really mend the mainstream the way you want it to be.

Although Complex has always been fire, most of my curiousity has been focused on Jinx from Complex, who has been focusing on Pigeons and Planes. He has a wide range of taste in music, and he uses his platform to present the dopest music he finds, and wherever he is going to present his stories.

We need people to be weird. And I am willing to go the extra mile, like all of the people who we read every day. So that people can be enlightened on how much good music, and random things out there, we just have to find it. 

American Teen; Khalid’s Ballad of Emotions Finds Early Success 

For starters, I’m not talking about Dj Khalid, but you really did “play yourself” if you haven’t been listening to the fire from El Paso Texas native Khalid over the past year.

Khalid caught my attention when I was scrolling through similar artists to my favorite artist  KYLE, and Khalid was there, he had recently released a single  called Location, and instantly fell in love with the way his music sounded.  His voice is smooth, and he really pays attention to the flow of his music and combines everything into one ballad of emotions. you really have to  let American Teen take you on a journey of your late teens. Khalid’s lyrics are spot on, from break ups, to doing stupid things with your teenage friends.

    You cannot put a category on Khalid. He is just naturally flexing on whatever he likes, and he sounds almost like the birth of a 1975, Taylor Swift, and Frank Ocean one night stand. It’s truly a one of a kind. 

 American Teen Is a really cool concept Album. Khalid uses the “American Dream” and makes his own mantra sayimg that he is an “American Teen” where you can really do whatever you put your mind to. And he’s doing this at 19 years old, and the music is breathtaking. There is a little bit of everything in this Album, something to really vibe out.

 You can also feel Khalid has gone through a lot with a particular female, and he really expressed the feelings of heartache, yet showing the positive aspects of what he learned from everything, because he is living “young dumb and broke” 

There are plenty of songs that I would recommend. But I would really recommend you listen to it straight up and get in toon to your inner teenager and revisit those primitive savage things you did with your friends after school. 

But American Teen, Coaster, Another Sad Love song, Let’s go, and Shot Down are bangers, but if you like this type of music I would highly recommend artists like KYLE, Smino, and Skott for more. With the growing rate of music, toon in to find the best out of the long end of the media. Gucci Suave out.

Advanced Technology in the Music Game; how combining different genres of music can lead to instant bangers 

2017 is only 2 months old and we already have 2 Future  mixtapes… And the talks of releasing a 3rd dynasty mixtape in 3 weeks, you really have to see how much work Future really puts in the booth, and who and what technology he and his fellow Atlantaliens do to get the sound they strive for. This goes out to all of the artists of the world.

I feel like Future, and many artists grow up and really hone in on their sound, and make the music they want to create. But once artists start hearing artists from different backgrounds and cultures, and almost a different perspective on life,  an artist can really choose who they want to collab with, or what kind of sound they want to conjure up together, and really have a fun time while dropping bangers.

Meanwhile the fans are loving it, because the music is just getting amazing. Every week, their seems to be something highly anticipated, something that has been in the head of all of these talented artists and they are throwing it into the world. Yet they are doing it on their terms and they are happy. And since they are happy they make catchier happy songs. The same thing can be applied to if your angry with your life, or with jealousy. 

Whatever a person surround/ themselves with, is most likely how the success level of the song that you are trying to make. Say you have an option to produce with Metro Boomin, prominent producer of Atlanta, and work and really see what he is trying to put out into the world, or come get chipotle with me and then make nonsense because we have no idea what we are doing . Obviously people are going to want to listen to whatever producer who has a good understanding of the software to make beats, it’s a true talent and anything can be created if a person really puts their mind to it.

But I feel like many artists are ready to rise up and make the music they truly are happy about, with the people they want to work with. And with the rise of social media, anybody who has a mutual liking of something can turn into an instant bond in any second. Nobody knows you just have to find out for yourself.

So with the rise of Technology, and the faster communication of people’s thoughts, artists harness all of that energy and put it into a song that lasts only 3 minutes of our days, but we can think about the sounds that we listens to for hours, it follows you everywhere. From your car, to some douche at the gym playing his music too loud, it really is amazing. 

I feel like the more relatable and real the music is, the longevity of the song increases. Because after a while, all of the blowing bands and popping bottles gets old really quickly, so you have to have other material on things that are real and sincere to you too. And be honest to the listener. It’s either “hey I’m working on myself to be better” or “hey I realized my true happiness so now I’m going to turn up because I’m successful” . 

I feel like music can really teach people how to live lives.  And if we focus on the good things than it’s easier to look at the bad ones. Like what Anderson .  Paak , Yes LAWD!
