Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing well. We are already half way through the year, wow! For today’s post I want to share some of my favorites from the month of June, in terms of music, entertainment, etc. Enjoy!
• Everything is Love x The Carters (album)
This album came by surprise to everyone and it’s pure vibes! I’ve probably listened to it everyday since it’s been released and it’s just right for the summer time. I’m so happy they released it to Apple Music and Spotify instead of just Tidal.
“Summer”, “Apeshit” , “Boss” & “Friends” are some of my favorites. If I had to choose my absolute favorite, “Apeshit” is the one! Non-stop twerking, hehe.
• Got Friends x Miguel & Goldlink (song)
I love this collab and would love if they do an entire album together. Their voices mesh perfectly, so eargasmic.
• Scorpion x Drake (Album)
I’m not too impressed with this album as a whole.
“Mob ties” (side a) and “in my feelings” (side b) is the best songs to me. I liked the concept of having Side A & B. Side B would have to be my favorite, it really brought back that good ol’ get-you-in-your-feelings Drake music.
I still can’t believe he actually has a son out here and was able to hide it for so long (listen to “March 14”) And how about that song “Don’t matter to me” with Michael Jackson on it? Interesting.
Books & Magazines 📚
• Soar x TD Jakes
This book was more of an how to start your own business/becoming an entrepreneur book. I expected it to be more spiritually inspirational but nonetheless, it was good.
• Essence Magazine’s June 2018 “men’s” issue
First of all, can we please just take a moment to appreciate the cover photo of Michael B. Jordan! I particularly loved this issue because it talked about how guys really feel about the #metoo movement and keeping black men healthy.
I loved Terry Crew’s interview and believe he is so brave for opening up about his own sexual assault which a lot of guys are very ashamed to talk about. But, unfortunately sexual assault happens to a lot of us and it’s nice seeing a males perspective for once.
• Super Fly
This movie was a remake of the original 1972 version. Trevor Jackson starred as Preist in this new version released on June 13, 2018. I’ll admit, I didn’t have high hopes at first because I believe some movies just shouldn’t be remade or have sequels but I really enjoyed this one. It was very entertaining. This street hustler thriller had me on the edge of my seat. Did I mention how foinee Trevor Jackson is?! Good lawd!
• ‘Slasher’ on Netflix (TV Show)
My current not so guilty pleasure, my binge watching obsession. If you like murder mysteries, blood, gore and horror, need I say more?
•Raspberry cheesecake cookies from Subway
I just now discovered these and so glad I did. Delicious!
