XXV: Do You Have A Must-Listen Spring Mix?

I am a person who cannot go a day without music. I usually have music playing while I shower, I have music blaring on my short commute to work, I oftentimes listen to music while working, and I definitely keep my noise-cancelling Beats headphones on anytime that I am on campus or at the gym.

So, this week, I am posting my Spring "Must Listen Music List": 

1. Drake - Nice For What 

Drake knows just what we need and exactly when we need it. He always give us a song for the sunny days that'll last us through summer, but this one will be hot the whole year.  

Drake has outdone himself with the song, and especially with the video. Check it out!

 

2. Brett Young - Sleep Without You

Let me just start by saying that I obsess over Brett Young's voice. The versatility, the range, and the ability! His voice is to die for. 

Add that beautiful face and smile of his and you'll be just as obsessed as I am!

I'm also very excited to see him in concert along with Thomas Rhett later this year!

 

3. Thomas Rhett - Marry Me

This is definitely a radio hit. I cannot get into my car on any given day without hearing this song playing.

It's not your usual summer love song, in fact, it is the exact opposite! Maybe that's why I like it so much. 

 

4. Brett Eldredge - The Long Way

This song...

I am someone who is very interested in the story behind a person before being interested in seeing myself with that person. Faithful readers know that I am so much more about the connection than the title. If you listen to the lyrics of this song, then you know exactly how I feel.

This song is all about a man trying to make/create an authentic connection with a woman. He wants to know what make her tick, he wants to know what made her into the woman she's become. 

I just LOVE this song. Please listen to it! 

 

5. Hailee Steinfeld & Bloodpop - Capital Letters

The entire Fifty Shades Freed soundtrack was amazing, but a couple of songs stood out to me, and this was one of them.

I definitely recommend downloading this whole soundtrack on whatever platform you use to get music and just listen to it. I bet you a quarter that you'll love it too.

 

6. James Arthur - Say You Won't Let Go

This man is simply amazing. If you haven't heard any of his other songs, you need to stop what you're doing and go listen right now. 

Start with his newest album Back from the Edge (2016) and then work your way through his catalog. You will not be disappointed. 

 

7. Jimmie Allen - Best Shot

An adorable summer love song. Give it a listen because I'm sure you'll hear it during wedding season for the country music lovers. 

 

 

 

8. Rayana Jay - 2:30

Now, I do not only love this song because it's by my sister Rayana, I really play this song all the time.  It's soothing and has just the right amount of bass (anyone that knows me knows that I love my bass). 

 

I could keep my list going forever, but I'd love to hear from the readers. I am looking for new music, different genres, and beautiful soundtracks to listen to!

Side note: I know it is shocking to those of you that know me to not see Beyonce on this list, but unless you want almost every song she's made since '4' on this list, we'd better not even go down that road.
