Ok, so I know Chris Brown is not the best person, but that has nothing to do with his talent.He is a singer, dancer, and rapper. He has been doing his thing since 2005; that was when he released “Run It!” which was an immediate hit. There are so many songs by him that have the potential to become R&B classics, like “Take You Down,” “Forever,” and “Deuces.” He gained a lot of negative attention after beating his girlfriend, Rihanna, back in 2009. Yes, that was a terrible thing to do, but I still like his music. It’s actually surprising how the incident did not hurt his career too much. His newest album is Fortune, and I think it is really great, and I listen to it all the time now. F.A.M.E. and Chris Brown are other albums I like. His music sounds very similar to Usher. Chris Brown is my favorite artist of the moment; I just hope he doesn’t make another huge mistake.
I love Drake Aubrey Graham! You probably know him just as Drake, and he is extremely popular. He is a Canadian rapper, and he really got me into rap music. I remember the first song I heard by him was “Forever” on the radio. Some of my favorite rap songs are by him, like “Fancy” and “Best I Ever Had.” A lot of people complain about how he is not “real” rap, but I still like his music. He is part of the rap group YMCMB (Young Money Cash Money Billionaire), which was started by Lil’ Wayne. He was actually on Degrassi when he was younger, before his rap career started. Take Care, his newest album, is probably his best in my opinion. His raps aren’t always the fastest; unlike some other rappers, his raps can be slow, but he will still sound great. Off of the Take Care album, I really like “The Motto” and “HYFR,” but you have probably already heard those on the radio thousands of times.
I LOOK INCREDIBLE. Who wants to go pop some tags with me? Because this week I want to talk about the current number one song on Billboard’s Hot 100 list: “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz.
If you haven’t heard it by now, don’t bother looking it up. I love this song so much, but once you hear it, it’s stuck in your head for at least a week. It’s extremely catchy and upbeat. I really love it because of what he is rapping about. I like rap, but I’m tired of all the songs about love, partying, and the “thug life.” A song about bargain shopping, now that’s original. It’s just an addictive song that you could have fun listening to. After hearing this song, I started listening to some of the other music Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have put out. Their songs are refreshing, and another song I really like by them is “Same Love ft. Mary Lambert.” P.S. The “Thrift Shop” music video will definitely make you smile. I want to go to Goodwill.. like right now.
