“Somebody that I use to know” by Gotye is definitely one of the realist songs released this year. I love this song so much that I wish I wrote it. This acoustic version by Rita Ora was real good flava to my ears. To be honest I don’t really care too much for Rita Ora but I love what her and her male background singer did with this song. Jay-Z wasn’t lying though she just might be bigger then Rihanna in due time.
I’m not mad atcha’ girl, go head witcha soulful self!
I decided to open up my ears and give ya’ll a piece of my music library. There not in order because I just can’t seem to rank them. I am so diverse when it comes to music, you can find a song for every genre in my collection. It truly shows how I am a lover for music and I have open ears. A little old, a little new.. A little bit of everything.. Never be scared to listen to something new you never know until you know..
Here’s My Top Ten:
1.New Impressionz- Dont say you will
2.Jhene Aiko- 2 seconds
3. Meek Millz-Racked up shawty
4. Adele- Rumor has it
5. BIG Krit- 4evainaday
6. Gotye- Somebody That I use to know
7. Drake- The Presentation
8.Mac Miller- Lucky A** B**ch
9.Case- Touch me, tease me
10. Frank Ocean- Pyramids
Extras-Maroon 5: The way I was

Jay-Z : Say Hello
My first pre judgement before watching this video was ” Oh lord another subliminal message video from Miss Bad gal Ri Ri”. But to be honest I really enjoyed this video. The music video for “Where Have You Been” was filmed March 7 and March 8, 2012 in Los Angeles, California and was directed by Dave Meyers. Everybody knows Dave Meyers does dope videos, he’s been in the this field since I was 9.I liked the fact that the choreography looked fun and easy to learn. I applaud Rihanna for at least trying some choreography in her video other than her usual “dutty wine” and I think she looked amazing doing it. Also I loved the different visuals such as the African and the dark vivid scene. For all my fashionistas make sure you check out the inspiring fashion from her hair to her eyebrows which are very detailed. The song might actually take a little time to grow on me though because I actually enjoy “Reggae Ri Ri over Techno Ri Ri”. But I guess it’s safe to say that this is another successful hot dance Rihanna record with an even hotter video…

I know all my 90s babies can relate that this was the 106& park we love…. I remember watching this every single day!!! Solange has transformed recently, she looked like a mini beyonce in this video lol…Jay & Bey got some years on them don’t they? Enjoy!!
I remember being a little girl and watching this one music show on BET with a host name Rachel. I swear every show was hosted by this lady and I would literally be glued to the TV. This show was wayyyyy better than 106 & park. Anyways I remember this particular performance with Destiny’s Child cause I almost broke my ankle trying to dance like them lol. I loved me some Destiny’s Child, I still do but too bad there’s no more. I couldn’t help but laugh when I noticed how the other three members were placed behind Beyonce and the particular parts of the song they were singing. Some girl group huh? Welp Thank God for youtube for helping me relive those memories. Enjoy!!
Hip-hop has done so much for racial relations, and I don’t think it’s given the proper credit. It has changed America immensely. I’m going to make a very bold statement: Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations.
