Music Monday (24) Janelle Monáe & Charli XCX,

   Rules:

Breana: My first pick this week is Cold War by Janelle Monáe. I feel like I’m always mentioning Janelle Monáe, but she has released a lot of great songs that I just want to talk about. I also listen to The Electric Lady and ArchAndroid albums often, so I was bound to talk about her music again. So, Cold War, yeah, it’s a fantastic song.


My second pick this week is Take My Hand by Charli XCX. I first heard of her back in 2013 when her True Romance album came out. And let me tell you, I used to listen to that entire album often and on repeat. I don’t know why I stopped listening to it for a while. It’s only recently that I started listening to True Romance again and remembered why it’s one of my favorite albums. As for Take My Hand, well, I love this song so much. It’s one of the best songs from the album. There are other great songs too like Black Roses, Nuclear Seasons, and Lock You Up.

Music Monday (15) Alabama Shakes, Janelle Monáe & Grimes

Adri: For this Music Monday, I'm going with a song that came out a while ago, and when I first listened to it, I hoped that it would get a music video. The song is Venus Fly by Grimes featuring Janelle Monáe. I was already stoked when Grimes started releasing videos for songs off of her Art Angels album (like World Princess Part ll). However, I was even more stoked when the music video for Venus Fly was released just a few days ago. The song is so interesting and all I can say is that the music video was worth the wait.


Breana: Yes, I'm totally going to comment on this one. I wholeheartedly agree with Adri. Venus Fly is one of my favorite songs and I'm really glad that it got a music video. I mean, it features two of my favorite artists: Grimes and Janelle Monáe. It's creative, colorful, and fun to watch. The way it was filmed created an amazing result. If this was a movie, I'd totally see it.
Breana: I really only have one song to share this week, and that’s Don’t Wanna Fight by Alabama Shakes. Don’t Wanna Fight is an amazing song, I love everything about it. The feel of it is the epitome of blues with a hint of rock to the sound. Brittany Howard’s vocals are powerful and soulful, that’s the only way I can describe her voice. I really had a hard time deciding which version of the song I wanted to share—they’re both equally fantastic. In the end, I decided on the live version, which you can check out below.

Music Monday (5) Janelle Monáe, Breach, & Lianne La Havas

Before I get to what I’m listening to this week, I want to take the time to welcome Adri to Music Monday. Adri has blogged a couple of times on Our Thoughts Precisely, and today, she’s going to share some of the music she’s been listening to down below.
Recently, I’ve been listening to more of Janelle Monáe's music. Her style of music and vocals are just amazing. I like all of her albums—The Electric Lady, The ArchAndroid, and even Metropolis: The Chase Suite. Some of my favorite Janelle Monáe songs are Primetime featuring Miguel, Q.U.E.E.N., Electric Lady, Dance Apocalyptic, Sincerely Jane, Tightrope, and Come Alive (War of the Roses), just to name a few.

Primetime is one of my favorite songs, because it had the one collaboration that I didn't know I needed in my life. And if Janelle Monáe and Miguel ever made a full album together, I would definitely buy it.



Electric Lady is on the same album as Primetime. Not only is the beat catchy, but the lyrics are too. 

Hi, Adri here, I'm back, long time no see. Coincidentally, I found both of the songs by thumbnail browsing. For Unstoppable by Lianne La Havas, her hair in the thumbnail captured my attention (#NaturalHairMoment #HairGoals), and I couldn't help but to check it out. I instantly loved the song. 


When I fist saw the thumbnail for Everything You Never Had (We Had It All) by Breach featuring Andreya Triana, my immediate reaction was: "Wait what?". I just had to drop what I was doing and listen to it. Some parts of the song reminded me of my two other favorite songs: Finally by CeCe Peniston and It Takes Two by Rob Base and D.J. E-Z Rock. I just like it and have had it on repeat. P.S. I love the music video. (Fun fact: Did you know that the Woo! Yeah! loop originated from Think (About It) by Lyn Collins?
